    I'm 3 DPO today and promised myself that I wasn't going to read blogs or go on the internet for symptons....YEAH RIGHT! I couldn't keep that promise, obviously! HAHA! Anyone else at 3 DPO and want a buddy? The only "sympton" I have at this point is slight cramping and frequent urination. Anyone else want to share their symptons...TWW is just horrible, it drives me crazy! LOL

    Hi Tynmeg,
    I am right there with ya! 3 days DPO and my brain is going crazy! I don't think I have any symptoms, other than mental obsession (lol!), but I am extremely hungry. However, I go through phases of being extremely hungry a lot. I was nauseated yesterday, but I was in the back of a passenger van and sometimes that makes me nauseated in general. So, in short, nothing totally out of the ordinary. I do pee a lot too, but I also drink a lot of water. I hate all these vague symptoms, especially because it's really too early to know anything :)

    Last night I felt my CP and it seemed soft and low, but then again, I am SOOO new to that part of the process, so it could mean nothing at all.

    We are TTC #1, I am 36, and this is month 3 of trying. I haven't had any fertility treatments or anything, as I am still new to trying so we'll see what happens if no BFP after a few months.

    We BD -2 and -1 day from "O", as we were at a family function the day/night of "O" - bummer!! It stinks to be in that awkward place in the 2ww that we can't do ANYTHING!! Too early to test, too early to know if AF is going to rear her head!!!

    I am right there with ya! Hang in there, we can do this!!!!!

    Oh Yes, the mental obsession...it feels more like insanity. lol Everything you think you feel, you question if it's a sympton, drives me mad! Anyway, it's nice to know someone is along for this ride with me.
    According to what I know, you timed your BDing perfectly. Sperm lives for 3-5 days and you want them there waiting for when you ovulate...your window is very small after you ovulate. I really hope that this is our month and we both get BFPs!
    I'm 35 and married to a woman, hence the need for fertility treatments. ;) I take Clomid to make sure I ovulate from days 3-7. I hear ya with the TWW and not being able to do anything...AF comes day 1 and I call and make appointments for the IUI, Day 3-7 I take Clomid, starting on Day 12 I start using OPKs, then when it's positive, I drive 5 hours to the clinic, the next day is the IUI, then...................................you wait, do nothing but wait!

    It's nice to have a buddy, We can do this! Do you chart your BBT?

    Awesome, another buddy. Well know that you have 2 other people that understands your insanity. We can try to keep each other half sane. lol

    Sorry about your mc, I had one the end of Oct 2012 and it's a hard thing to go through, I hope you get a BFP...FX for all of us. :)

    Tynmeg - wow, 5 hr drive!!?? Yikes!! That takes the commitment to TTC to the next level!! Hoping extra hard for your BFP this time :) Which OPKs do you use? I don't have good luck with them (cheapies from Amazon), so I have been tracking CM, and also try to BD a lot around that time (this month a bit less). My friend who got her BFP in Feb used the same brand as I am and never had luck, so maybe it's time for a new brand. I also forgot to bring them on the day I had EWCM and I was 'slated' to O based on cycle and CM, as that was the day I was out of town on family trip for 36 hrs or so.

    I don't do BBT yet, but maybe if no BFP this month - I am open to it. Do you do BBT?

    lfrans- nice job on timing the BD, so good luck for BFP.

    My boobs are itchy a bit today, and my nipples look larger than usual (TMI- sorry!), but then again, I don't know if this is typical and I'm just hyper vigilant about notice such things now that I'm TTC. Stay tuned....I'll check in again if anything earth shattering happens (hahaha, probably not).

    I use the Clearblue easy OPK's. For me, it's very clear when it's time, my line shows up before the test line and is darker than the test line. They are a bit pricy, I get 7 for around 50 dollars. I think you're still in the running for your timing though, my friend who was seen by a fertility specialist was told to BD on days 11, 13, 15, 17...it worked twice for her. ;)
    I started charting in March, I like it only because it shows me exactly when and if I ovulate...the only tricky thing is that you should do it at the same time every day and not get up for a pee or anything for like 2-3 hours before you take it. Near the time that AF is due, if your temp starts dropping then you also know you aren't preggo.
    My nipples are always sensitive after I O, but ya never know, itchy boobs could be a good thing. :)
    I'm also trying acupuncture this round. I started it in April so got 2 months in before we tried again. I read that it can be helpful so thought I'd give it a try, turns out, I really like it, it's quite relaxing.

    Hi girls!

    I'm 3DPO too! Planning to test on the 24th, fingers crossed for our BFP!

    We BD on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. I ovulated on Saturday.

    I've been using the CBFM. Xx

    Awesome, Welcome to our insanity of the TWW, it's so great to have others that are on the same day. I will probably start testing early on June 19, although I shouldn't test until June 24 either. I try to be strong and wait but it always gets the best of me. lol

    Good Luck and FX for you too!

    welcome Timtilly.

    I too am glad I'm not in this alone. These are the longest days. I doubt I can wait until the 22nd to test, but we shall see...... I will likely cave by next Monday, lol!

    Tynmeg- thanks for details about which strips you use. Yep, I bet they work a lot better than mine, which were about $15 for 50. Sometimes you get what ya pay for!

    I definitely have hope about our BD timing this month, especially as I learn to read my body's signs, but time will tell.....

    Acupuncture sounds lovely...and relaxing as you say. I think staying relaxed is a key element to all of this.

    Exactly! Getting the BFN sucks so you would think we would wait but I cave every time! Lol. I'm cramping, very gassy and feeling heavy tonight but who knows?! We'll see what tomorrow brings. :)

    I haven't heard of soy isoflavones before. I'll have to do some reading. I love finding out new things and it gives me something to do instead of thinking about being pregnant and goind insane with this TWW. I have long cycles so I take Clomid, I didn't O till CD 17 this month. Hope you get your BFP this month!

    I haven't heard of soy isoflavones either, but I'm allergic anyway- boo!!

    What do you ladies also take in terms of supplements? I am always curious about that.

    I take a pre-natal vit given to me by my Doc at Kaiser. I also take 2000 IU of Vit D on days when I am not in the sun a lot, and I take 250-500 mg magnesium for my digestion. I eat a mostly wheat-free diet, I do eat meat, and I drink about 10 oz of decaf coffee everyday (should I give that up)? I eat a lot of veggies and fruit too, trying to eat alkaline foods (greens, etc.).

    Oh, and I've been having minor but continuous pain on my left side by ovary area. On a 1-5 it's a 1.5, but it is distinct for sure. I also feel a bit bloated.

    Why do the days go SOOO slow??!!

    I take Materna prenatal vitamins and 1000 IU of Vitamin D. I also take Curcumin but only for 2 weeks out of the month as the vote is still out on whether it's safe during pregnancy. It's suppose to help with inflammation therefore it helps with blood circulation. I eat a fairly healthy diet, I have at least one salad a day with lots of green veggies along with some type of protein and eat my 3 meals a day. I drink Red Raspberry Leaf tea, it's suppose to be good for the uterus and lots of water.

    My minor continuous pain is on the right side, hope that means something good for us.

    Who knows?!?!?

    Sure wish there was a way to speed up a few days. LOL

    thanks Tynmeg for the details. I'll check out rasberry leaf tea- sounds yummy too!

    I think about how many menstrual cycles I've had in my life that I absolutely paid no attention to because I was not TTC, and then think about how obsessed I am now that we are trying. A year ago I would not have recognized the self I have become! Ha!

    fingers crossed for all of us here!!!!

    The soy is actually pretty incredible. It's a natural form of Clomid. I read a forum that asked approx 200 women all the same questions. About 80% got their bfp their first time trying soy after months or years of ttc. A lot had tried clomid and everything else but nothing worked. Approx 8% conceived on the second cycle of soy and the remainder got their bfp 3-4 months of trying! Those numbers are approximate, I'm pretty sure they're close though. I'll try and find the page! Do a lot of research. You may find posts that say not to take if you have regular cycles. Not true at all. You can. In fact a woman I'm friends with on here got her bfp her first cycle trying soy! It's worth a shot!
