I’m now at cycle day 22 and when I went to take a test with fmu (bfn) I had some bleeding. Hoping it’s IB and not AF. Not really cramping yet like with AF and CP is still high.

Well Af definitely got me yesterday With hardly any cramps either which I honestly can’t even be mad at .. so why am I so mad that it had to be a complete 180 from most cycles which cramps got me dying on Cd1! Mental note for sure that maybe when I finally get a bfp I really just won’t know cause symptoms will be so much like Af or maybe they’ll be things I’ve never experienced in my life and it’s that Ah-Ha moment Either way Cd2 here and I’m going to enjoy my work free weekend and do my research on what I’m going to try differently this cycle. Has anybody tried Vitex? Just googling or searching the forums for vitex and TTC I see so many success stories & im SUPER interested and think it’s worth a shot! Anybody know anything about it or have tried it themselves? Hope you all are having a good Friday & will have a good weekend with lots of baby making or symptom spotting I will be spending time with my nephews and watching my other half do a side job, aka relaxing with the witch haha. Any big plans for you girls?

Sorry to hear AF came for me as well today, but I'm still so confused because my cervix is so high up... and it's a week early for AF, but I did screw my cycle up this month because I stopped my BCP after week 1. Oh well

Sorry af got you. After bcp this will be your withdraw bleed. The next is your real AF. I came off bcp in July and my cycles have only just settled down into a common pattern. My first few were 25 day cycles, now they are 26/27 day. Hope you level soon

Ah I know what you mean. Mine were so crampy a few months ago, I HAD to have a hot water bottle to hand. Now I barely cramp at al. Iím really not complaining about it, itís a god send.

Iíve been thinking about trying vitex/Angus cactus as well. Think Iím going to try it next cycle if this one is unsuccessful

Sorry to hear Lee I agree that it’s probably your next cycle that’ll be the mother of all ovulations haha. Definite fx for you I feel like a lot of women who get their bfps have just come off BC! Do you temp? I’m going to start and I know it takes a few months to see what my normal is but I’m hoping it’ll help pinpoint ovulation so I know I can trust my own symptoms along with FF!

Nix- I get it girl! I would honestly and almost always call off work on the first day of my cycle the cramps would be THAT bad! I was expecting it to be like that again with how bad my boobs were that morning so I had pulled my heating pad out and everything! So yes definitely a god send but just a tad bit confusing too haha. I’m still so new to actively Ttc but I’m honestly starting to feel desperate knowing it “just hadn’t happened yet.” I’ll have to look into Angus Cactus as well!

When it comes to your ovulation days do you guys go exactly by your LP, Opks, Ewcm, temping or all of the above? I think I’m going to splurge on the clearnlue fertility monitor so there’s no line eyes and guess work. Maybe I’ll be reading reviews and researching all weekend after all! Just trying to give myself the best chance I can to have a little one in 2018!!

has arrived for me as well, cramping since morning, light bleeding when I wipe. Now waiting for it to hit in full force. I am so down right now, even though the cramp is not half as bad as I usually have, I called off work today.

Die, Lee - I am so sorry. Hope we get better luck in our next cycles..

Nix - I have everything crossed for you!

Nix - That's what I have been thinking because ever since a few days after getting off BCP I have had sore boobs and cramps.

Die - I don't temp, but I have been thinking of starting. Just curious to say how it changes through the cycle.

Lady - Sorry to hear as well.

FX for all

This is only my 2nd time temping. I find it quite a chore, but Iím going to keep. Just took my bra off to get in the bath and yowzers. Super heavy sore boobs alert, felt like falling bricks!

I get new/different symptoms EVERY month. My body likes to throw something new in there. I have horrendous dry skin as well.

I have 3/4 days left of this ďam I/arenít I?!Ē Game. I feel so much more relaxed leading up to ovulation. I use temping and opks for ovulation. Iíve never had EWCM. When I was on bcp I used to get it all the time. Iím going to start using conception lubes and things soon I think

I had EWCM yesterday and then AF today. I think I also had EWCM randomly on the pills.
