    Morning everyone, joined the forum last night and I'm already in need of some help :shy:

    I've been ttc for just over a year now, but I think the issue has been hampered by my size but recently I've started on a healthy eating plan and haven't touched a drop of alcohol since New Years Day (which is highly unlike me as I used to like a chilled glass of rosé of a weekend

    My cycle is usually 31/33 days long and my LMP was 26th March.

    Anyhoo the past week or so I've been feeling really....meh

    I think I ov'ed anywhere between Sat 11th and Mon 13th. Friday 17th I had some brown spotting and thought nothing of it, but for the past 8 days it's been on and off but it's never been red.

    I've had some AF like cramps but nothing that indicates :witch: is on her way

    For the past couple of days I've been feeling really tired and I had to have a sleep yesterday afternoon, I just couldn't stay awake.

    I've been feeling kinda nauseous (sp) but I haven't been sick, my nose runs a lot (I've got hayfever but it's not my time of year yet). I've had the mother of all headaches for 2-3 days but daren't take painkillers just in case, my bbs are sore, I was bloated, felt like I was the size of a cruise ship yesterday:blush:


    Anyway, what I'm asking is.............would it be the right time to test? Should I be disheartened if it's a :bfn:??


    Thanks in advance:hug:

    ok so ov was 13 days ago minimum going from last possible day it could have happened, so that would make u 13 days into ur luteal phase right?
    if this is the case u can test now BUT bare in mind some women don't get a :bfp: till 18dpo, now i got mine last time at 9dpo, this is real early and just so happened implantation happened early but implantation can take upto 12dpo (i think) so there fore if this happens u wont get a :bfp: until after 12dpo, sorry does all this make sense to u? xxx
    u have been trying for a year now huns so id defo a good possibility this is it for u the symptoms are great also.
    also huns do u know how long ur luteal phase is if 14 days then u due on tommrow and if u have oved b4 the 13th then it will make u late for AF now so either way i think u should test huns, do u have some IC's at home there? xoxoxoxox

    I'm not sure about the luteal phase length, I always just put it as 14 days cause I have never known otherwise :blush:

    Haven't been charting or anything yet

    Ordered a load of OPK's from eBay on Thursday, waiting for them to arrive

    Where's the best place to find out how things should be while you're charting?


    Thanks for all the help

    :hug:

    Well while I was dropping my nephew off I picked up a cheap pack of tests, and it was :bfn: but it still don't feel like :witch: is coming. I could smell cigarette smoke earlier, but neither of us smoke so I don't know where that was coming from

    I've been really :sick: this afternoon and I've just woken up from a 2 hour nap....it's not good!


    Gonna leave it until Friday I think before I test again, according to my diary that was supposed to be 18DPO so I'll either see :witch: or fingers crossed I'll get my :bfp:
