Hi everyone! I am new to this site! I posted this in the 'introduce yourself' section and someone suggested I try here instead! I would really appreciate your opinion on what you think our chances are!
We are trying to use the casual approach where we aren't actively trying because we think that will put more stress onto us and that isn't how we'd like to conceive our baby. The thing is I am very in tune with my body and know for a fact that I ovulated this month which is making me go over the dates and I can't stop thinking about it!
So here's my story...
I was chopping and changing different pills for a while but was beginning to regulate on Yasmin. On the second pack I stopped with 6 pills left in the pack... had my withdrawal bleed from the 24th March 2012 to around 28th-29th. We had intercouse on the 30th-31st March 2012 and then the 3rd-4th April which I thought would be enough for the 1-5 days that sperm can stay inside you. Ovulation calculators told me the 3rd (Tuesday) would be a good day to try for a baby but around Friday/Saturday were my most fertile days... providing I had a normal cycle.. now I know this can take a while when coming off the pill but from the days it told me, I had ovarian cramping on the left side and a lot of CM infact, (around Thursday to Saturday) this was definitely ovulation. So what does everyone think the chances are and how long after ovulation is implantation and being able to test? Has anybody else had experiences like this or got pregnant as soon as stopping Yasmin? It is weird that whenever I've come off pills before I have never noticed ovulation as much as I did in the first month of this. Today I have also been getting lower abdominal cramps and really bad heartburn. Is it normal to get cramps after ovulation and is it true you're supposed to have sex a couple of days before ovulation (which I did). Last question... If you had sex in the early hours of say 3rd to 4th April.. like 1-2am, what date does this count as??
Sorry this is so long winded! Thanks everyone!
I dont know much but i like helping as much as i can so i will answer what i can!
I have never taken pills besides on time for about 1 month but i did have BC (implanon) and had it removed March 5th 2012.
Okay about testing i will tell you that its best to test in two weeks from intercourse or on the date of your next period. Results are better around that time.
About the time of days being 1 am or 2 am. I believe it would be that date. So lets say april 3 at 2 am... i believe it would be april 3 not the day before since its after april 2nd. (idk if u understand that lol)
I am in my two week wait and I'm by far one of the most impatient people on the planet. I've been very thirsty, nauseous after eating, headaches, and omg I've been tired. I'm about 7 dpo (days past ovulation) so I have another 14-16 days before I should test. I've been using Clear Blue Easy Digital Ovulation Predictor. Got my first "smiley" face on the 2nd, my OH (other half) and I DTD ("did the dance) 3 days before my smiley, twice on the day of my smiley, and once per day for the following 2 days ( every day from the 30th of March to the 4th of April), skipped a day, and then DTD again. We're pretty sure we hit everything. Hoping AF doesn't show up!! FX!!
hiya! ahh me too i can't stand it i just want to be at that stage of testing. i've been needing to go to the toilet a bit more and maybe slight nausea but more than anything i've been getting cramps, this afternoon i felt a sharp twinge in the left side of my lower abdomen around my ovary area i'm guessing and then got some weird twinges and ever since have had cramps! i also feel very aware of my stomach and my back, like my skin feels so sensitive like i'm really aware of my waistband?? my boobs also feel slightly swolllen and that never even happens when i'm due! i must only be 3-4 dpo so i'm guessing most of this is in my head right?? it's so hard i know that we shouldn't symptom spot! is this your first month trying to conceive? it's my first month off birth control but i know for a fact i ovulated it's really weird! it's hard to tell what's ovulation symptoms though i guess. we must be patient!! x
yeah this is my first month really trying but i've been on birth control since like september. And my mother had morning sickness from about the time of conception (no joke) I've had cramps too. Some in lower abdomen (almost felt like I was constipated... sry if TMI) and some like pins and needles throughout my whole belly. Not sure what's up there.
yeah it's weird isn't it! well we can get through the two week wait together if you like
compare symptoms and all that. at the moment it actually sounds like we've got exactly the same symptoms. for me last time a lot of the morning sickness symptoms/nausea were slightly psychological, because the day i found out i started being sick. i am mega early this time though like if we were to be pregnant we're barely even! haha
sure i'm so stressed with things right now...trying to stay relaxed. OH and I took the big truck muddin' Fri night and knocked a tire off alignment now we have to figure out how to get it fixed and closest place that will do it is 30 miles away. UGH.
As far as PG symptoms, I've been VERY VERY thirsty. Not usually this thirsty. Been downing kool-ade like it's my job.
aw sorry to hear that is there nothing else you can do?! i've had cabin fever this weekend the weather has been terrible so i've not really gone out anywhere. i've just been to the toilet and had loads of creamy clearish discharge (sorry tmi)when i wiped which is weird and i've just cooked dinner and can't even finish it, feel a bit queasy and i feel like my period is coming but i'm not due for about two weeks, strange!!
we have my car, but he has to take that to work. i only work a 1/4 mile from home so I can walk home in the afternoons b/c I get done before he does. walking will be good for me, and if I am PG it will be good for the too.
ugh I was just looking at a friend of mine's ultrasound pics and pics of her daughter in the hospital etc. just depresses me I want this so bad. I dated a guy in the past for 7 months and got to play "mommy #2" to his daughter (she was 2 at the time) and then he left me and I never got to see her again. ever since then i've just cried wanting to be a mom. now i'm finally with the right man and i'm super impatient. i'm just glad he's supportive
