8dpo here and a part of me is afraid to take tests since I lost the last baby :-/ I'm petrified it'll happen again.
If it does I decided to wean my 16 month old since ive never lost babies before and this is my first time TTC and nursing but I'm hoping that's not the issue!!

I also get afraid of taking a test early because I wonder if ignorance is bliss. It's not real unless I see a positive and if I don't see it I can just oh it came late or whatever. I'm not trying to negate anyone else's feeling but I feel I would rather think that way than go through the emotional roller coaster again. Hugs and fingers crossed you'll get a sticky bean

Re: 2WW - October & November

I don't like how the First Signel test get so much lighter after sitting over a day. For being almost a week late I didn't think they were getting very dark, so I took a FRER.





That's what I want to see. With this post, I'll leave you except to stop and cheer sometimes. Hoping for you all to see a sticky bean BFP soon!!

So 5 dpo here and I'm having strange cramps. Trying hard not to read too much into anything and be patient but this is definitely not my norm. 4 more days until I can go crazy and test!

Re: 2WW - October & November

Just got a positive OPK, a little earlier than expected, my CM has been gooey and globby so I just took a mucinex, 2 epo capsules and I am chugging a green tea. I am worried that my DH might drink too much at a Halloween party tonight, I told him what was up and to take it easy, but he is going to a party at his drinking friends house. Hopefully I will be back in the TWW.

Re: 2WW - October & November

Alright my first time posting this cycle. Got a positive LH test on Saturday at noon, thought I felt some cramping/twinges on the right side that afternoon, and we BD the next day shortly after noon. We've done this for a few months and I've had no symptoms and then AF showed up. This time though, since seriously the next day, and getting "worse", I've noticed cramping and soreness down there, feels very much like my period, but I'm not due for AF for another 12 days and my cycles are always regular but range 28-36 days. Is this normal?? I'm hoping this cramping/aching is a good sign… it feels like something is going on… but I don't want overlook possibly something abnormal or totally unrelated to pregnancy. Any thoughts? Thanks!!!

Could it just be some ovulation cramping? I sometimes have that?
