Cycle 6 CD36 10dpo

10dpo today and beginning to feel the urge to test. 

I don’t really have any symptoms, a few twinges but that could be anything, but then would I really have symptoms yet?  Probably not.

I have to go into the supermarket in my lunch hour today so considering buying a test while I’m there, just in case.  Despite everything I say about not testing early I seem to just need to know.  Those of you out there who can wait until you’re late are just amazing!

Cycle 6 CD31 5dpo

Ovulation was indeed on cd26 as I suspected so now I’m patiently waiting for the end of next week to get here.

I’m quite calm about things really.  In previous cycles I’ve been itching to test (I tested at 7dpo last cycle!) but at the moment I feel like I’d rather not know.

There’s obviously a big chance I’ll get impatient before I’m due my period but I’m just not bothered at the moment.  I have only one test in the house, which I didn’t actually realise i had until I sorted some drawers out, which is a cheap internet dip test which didn’t work too great for me anyway so I doubt I’ll test early with that.

So I’m due on Thursday 31st, with fertility friend giving me a test date of Friday 1st Feb.  I’m determined I won’t test before Thursday, and only then if my temp hasn’t dropped.

As for symptoms, none really.  My boobs feel a bit tender, but only just, but I’m not sure if this is just a post-ov thing as I’m fairly sure 5dpo is far too early for pregnancy symptoms anyway.

I’ll keep you updated.


Cycle 6 CD27 1dpo

I’m fairly sure yesterday was ovulation day.  Ov on cd26 isn’t too bad for me, especially as I was worried that I might have another 3 month long cycle.

I got smiley faces on the cb digital opk’s on Thursday and Friday, followed by a temp rise this morning so into the two week wait I go.

Not sure how I’m feeling really.  Technically we’re in with a good shot as, intercourse timing wise, it’s all good (Mon, Wed, Thurs & Fri), coupled with the fact that apparently you’re more fertile straight after a miscarriage means it’s looking good.

I’m scared though.  I want to see another positive pregnancy test desperately but I then want to go to sleep for 8 weeks and wake up to see a healthy baby at the 12 week scan.

I know I need to think positive, I know the chances of another miscarriage are very low but I really don’t want to go through it again or put my lovely husband through it again.

But for now we have to wait and see.
