    Congratulations hun! Those lines look lovely <3 by the way I just want to say those lines look way too dark to be a chemical. I think you should be very excited :happydance:

    AFM, AF is annoying and I'm struggling with WTT :(

    I'm an early tester usually. I'm trying to be chill this time and haven't bought any yet.

    Kiwi, waiting is horrible. How much longer do you have until you'll start?

    AF due in about 3/4 days (last month I came on at 11dpo so think that's what I'm looking at now as my new cycle) getting cramps so I know she's coming. I've just ordered some opks and bits from amazon. Was going to get a BBT thermometer as well but thought I would just end up obsessing. Its better if I just wait until u start getting signs O is coming and then opk

    I'm trying to give myself until January but my real goal is to lose at least an additional 60 lb first. With my son I gained over 70 lb throughout the pregnancy, that's double what I did with my girls.

    Good luck with the weight loss. Hopefully everything will line up nicely so you've lost an amount you're happy with just in time for January.

    So, I've only had one full cycle since ds5 was born and not been opk. Working from other ovulation signs and my lp from my previous cycle, I should have started AF yesterday. I had all the signs that she would arrive, but she didn't turn up yesterday or today, and the cramps I've had for the last few days have disappeared. I bought a test but only managed the tiniest wee and got a BFN.
    I either didn't O when I thought I did, my lp is not yet set and has changed which isn't as likely, or I am in fact pregnant but didn't have enough wee or enough hold to show. I'm only 12dpo, but last month AF arrived at 11dpo and before ds5 I only had a 10 day lp. I wish I hadn't wasted the test. I'm already having to resist doing the next one as it was a 2 pack.
    Now I've tested and told someone I expect she'll arrive.

    As predicted AF turned up a little while ago.
    I'm not too bothered though as I had actually just bought a bunch of opks and other things ready for next month and booked a tattoo for the start of September so at least I can still get that done and use all my bits for ttc

    Thanks, I didn't really believe that she would stay away after just 2 months of ttc anyway unfortunately
