Hi all, my DF and I are TTC this month for an October baby. We are on our 3rd cycle and hoping to conceive by April at the latest due to something happening in 2013. I'm in my 2WW right now, and it's frustrating because I've felt pg during this time before, but haven't been. Now I don't have any intuition or feeling like 'I might be pregnant' but am having some strange symptoms of pregnancy?

My doctor has said that it is safe to try, so DH and I are trying to conceive again this cycle. Based on age and everything, the chances of conceiving in any particular cycle are about 11-15%, but that probability isn't going anywhere but done with time. So, yes, any cycle were we can reasonably be in the same town around ovulation time, we are trying.

We had actually been coming up on a year TTC and been mentally getting ready to deal with a battery of fertility testing and to start saving up in case IVF was required. I am not attached to conceiving naturally. It's sure fun, but if there were an over the counter pill that would pump up the chances of conceiving by 80% and didn't have nasty side effects for the baby or my long term health--I would be taking it every cycle.

hello everyone,

well,after 2,5 years what i've learnt: all symptoms are no symptoms till you see the positive! every month i have been pregnant... LMAO..funny? well, i can still laugh about it. i have experienced all kind of symptoms and cramps and stomach sickness and swollen breasts and and and and everything.
I cannot lose my patience since i want to have a baby. I am happy that none of us two has a problem (all tests made again and again and everything seems normal)
now after 2,5 years i can only tell you that the problem is stress. I know myself, i know how i am and i know i am stressed. Not about getting pregnant but about a hundred other reasons (some have to do with having a baby some not) . And since i am telling myself that i will get pregnant the normal way no matter what (i am not sure about IVF yet)i am just spending the last month (after my last period) trying to locate my stress factors and get rid of them!
sorry, i don't want to tire you. About my TTC blogs etc..since i'm greek i use greek ones so i don't think i can suggest anything that can help you, sorry!

I am so new to all this. I can't even imagine what this is like for you. I guess I should learn from you that it is not time for me to loose my patience. Will you therefore be trying this cycle if you think out are ovulating?

KateM - Welcome. Good luck! I hope 2012 is a better year for you. At 2.5 years ttc, you've probably tried everything and learned a lot. I hope I'll get to learn some of that from you. Do you have a favorite ttc blog or charting site?

Chiquitah - I am totally not patient. I am waiting for ovulation after a miscarriage. This is the thirty-first day since the miscarriage. On a normal cycle, I ovulated between CD13 and CD 15 every single time expect for when I conceived. That time I ovulated twice and they were CD 14 and CD 21. It is only eight days since my HCG levels dropped down low enough for my cycle to restart, but I am a complete basket case. Every twinge is being minutely examined for ovulation pain. The fact that I have never previously be able to identify anything that could be a follicle bursting to release an egg somehow has not had any impact on my expectations. Sigh. I just want to ovulate! I want to see that my body is really and truly back to normal. And, I want it pregnant again. But not with a chemical or an ectopic or anything that will lead to another miscarriage. Also, I would really like a healthy child. I am willing to accept multiples, even. See? I am not totally demanding... Or not.

Thanks. I admire all the patient people in the world more and more. And to think I once thought I was. Ha! Someone just raised the bar on patience. How is everyone else in here doing?

CHIQUITAHSPROUT if you ovulated on Jan 9th the 10th would be 1 DPO. I seen your post in the October team asking too and I calculated your CD and DPO with the dates you provided and added you to the list which I update daily :) Good Luck

Chiquitah- the 10th would be 1DPO or one day past ovulation. Typically if this is a cycle in which you are pregnant, implantation would happen between 7DPO and 9DPO. Then HCG levels start to rise. If your fertilized egg implanted earlier, you could get a readable level of HCG earlier.

Here's a chart I've seen around explaining your chances with most hpts.
HPT accuracy DPO
10 dpo : 35%
11 dpo : 51%
12 dpo : 62%
13 dpo : 68%
14 dpo : 74%
15 dpo : 80%
16 dpo : 88%
17 dpo : 92%
18 dpo : 99%

These mean that if three pregnant women pee on a stick at 13 DPO, two will get a BFP (68%) and one will get a BFN (32%). That pregnant woman with the BFN is still pregnant, she just implanted late or her HCG levels aren't rising as fast as others. By 18 DPO, pretty much everyone who is pregnant will get a BPF on a home pregnancy test. For me, at about 14 DPO my period starts, so those higher accuracy numbers don't so much apply. If my period is late, I get really excited and test.

There is very little that is as annoying as getting up first thing in the morning the day after a missed period to happily pee on a stick only to discover a tampon is required.

I hope this helps a little.

I did use a website. But I don't think the chart had a day fr the cycle. Just a whole bunch of diagrams. I will look gain. Thanks for the luck. Anyone know if day ten for sure will see results? Do some women have to wait longer?

Thanks, J17888! Good luck to you, too!

CHIQUITAHSPROUT: Are you charting on paper or on a website? I find that charting on www.tcoyf.com is helpful as it tells you what day of your cycle that you're on, and it takes the guesswork out of trying to figure it out yourself. Just a suggestion!

Good luck! Hoping for a BFP for you this month!

I'm seriously going crazy. Buying cheap hpt tests only enables the need to test. I have been having symptoms or my brain is playing along. I always feel my ovulation. It came on schedule. We were intimate both days prior. About two days after that I start feeling things. Everyday a little something. Matbe just a little pinch. One day my body got unusually hot and I felt a little qweesy. A couple times my typical favorites of chocolate etc were really easy to ignore. I have a huge sweet tooth and one day I felt sick with a bit of a sweet tea biscuit. I have has cm that was very thick like lotion that stayed high near my cervix. Sorry if it is tmi. Even up until about six dpo I am feeling the tiniest twinges. I am breaking out with acne. Will the folic acid do this? My boobs might feel a little full. I wouldn't describe them as tender. I have think achy head like a hint a cold is coming. That has bee the case since the first day or two. It hasn't turned into a cold but I am extremely tired.
Question, with an ovulation date of Jan 9. When am I supposed to start counting? Is the 10th day one or day two? If I'm going to get the pos. Hpt is it realistic that the 19th would be the day?? I KNOW I should not have been testing yet. My brain just can't believe that you can have all those sptoms and no hormones. Any feedback will help keep the time. Thanks in advance. Ex oh
