Hi all!

My cycles have been a bit crazy after a mc in October 2016.

I've used the cb digi advanced ovulation tests and it showed peak on cd 18 which was Sunday 29th so peak stays on screen for 2 days so I'm assuming i ovd on Monday 31st. I dtd 26th, 28th and 30th so hoping that is enough!!

I have no idea how many dpo I am as am only going by peak fertility on the digi which came up Sunday?!

Only symptoms I've has so far was shotting cramps 'down there' on Saturday which would have only been 5dpo.

Not sure when to do a test and which ones are best. As my cycles are a bit messed up I have no idea when af is due.

Driving myself a bit crazy over here so really need some advice!!

Thanks in advance xx

Hi sunshinekim, the two week wait is really hard. I would say if you are only 7dpo it is perhaps a little early to try. The cramps on day 5po might be encouraging as this could be implantation. If you are not sure when af is due it might be worth testing toward the end of the week. Getting an early bfn is dissapointing. I usually try and hold off until a couple of days before af, which is usually around 10po. Some tests will detect hcg 7dpo but it's generally recommended to wait until af is due (which I know your cycles are not consistent at the moment) but if you can't wait try using an early detection one and then if it I should a bfn, wait a couple more days as your hcg will double every 2 days if you are pregnant. Also test your early morning urine as more concentrated....urine later in the day, especially this early is likely to just reveal a bfn. The other thing you could check is your cervix position as some websites say that if you are pregnant the cervix should remain high whereas if you af is imminent then the cervix should be blow and firm to touch. Sending you for luck. I hope you get the result you are after x

Hi sunshinekim,

My cycles have been all over the place too since I came off the pill in October last year, plus I have had a lot of stress with family sickness and bereavement. So I understand your frustration! I wasn't quite sure when I ovulated either or exactly when AF is due (i reckon it was supposed to be the 4th 5th Feb - but again I cant be sure as only started tracking properly since beginning of Jan).
I am towards the end of the 'two week wait' and I promised myself I wouldn't get stressed or obsessed about it, but I have been reading waaaayyy more into it than I thought I would! I took a test this morning and it was a faint negative so I dont really know whats going on as I dont have any PMS symptoms at all. Reckon I am about 16dpo.

I wish I hadnt have done the test as it can be disappointing because you then think you did it too early, plus I used a cheap ebay one. You are better to look at the calendar and chose a date on it to test, which I did but let myself down! I even went and bought a basal thermometer online today.

Sorry I cant offer much advise but just wanted you to know you are not alone in the impatience of it all. xx

Hi both,

Thank you for coming back to me! I'm now 10dpo and yesterday evening I had af like cramps for a good few hours last night. Convinced af was coming but nothing yet... did a test and negative.

I literally have no idea when to test as periods are all over the place since mc. My ovia app says to test in 2 days time which would be 12dpo, but calculates me aso due on today?! I logged my ov as I had the peak cb digi on cd18 and therefore assume I ovd on cd19. I am cd29.

When do you think I should test? My ovia app says Saturday and I have GR tests ready and waiting x x x

If you can hold on, try and wait till Saturday as I know how disheartening it is when you get a bfn. I really hope the cramping is not the witch! Sending you for extra luck x

Thank you so much!! Yeah that's what I'm going to do, made my partner hide the one step strips and he's in control of the FR and to only allow me the one on Saturday!!

Thank you again x x x x

Hi sunshinekim,

I did a test last night and got a BFN . I thought it might be spotting I had but it appears to have been a very light AF. Darn witch!
I think I will track ovulation the next time better as I was only relying on an app. It was only really out first month TTC so it's all pretty new!

How are you feeling now, hope you have a BFP coming up soon xx
