Still hopeful we can conceive in 2021
[name_m]Just[/name_m] had tests results come in, but I’m still quite confused. Normal hormonal levels all the way through. But an ultrasound confirmed I have an ovarian cyst, which has been causing me some pain. I have been working extra hard to avoid sugar and simple carbs the past while, so it’s possible I brought my numbers down. Going to have a doctor chat tomorrow
I do wish our uteruses weren’t such a mystery. [name_f]Every[/name_f] month is a guessing game, every sensation can mean so much!
Did anyone here get an implantation dip when they got a BFP? If you did, had you seen one on your chart before, or was it the first time you had one?
Thinking of you all
So although I said I wouldn’t test til AF was due, I did do an easy@home hcg test this morning. AF could be due tomorrow or in 4 or so days, depending on what my cycle feels like doing this month
The test was negative, but I have been feeling nauseous all week (kind of like when you’re motion sick) but the nausea goes away when I eat. Also, my right nipple is SO sore today. It feels like when you have a really painful bruise - I just have to brush it and it’s agony. DH also thinks my boobs look bigger today, but that might just be wishful thinking on his part
I guess I’ll just have to wait a few more days and see if AF appears!
Out of 5 pregnancies I charted for 3 of them and saw an implantation dip in two. It’s actually a really cool looking chart! If these work…. The [name_u]March[/name_u] one had the subtle dip and was what they call triphasic if I recall correctly. I need to brush up on my temp charting!! The [name_u]February[/name_u] one had a drastic dip clearly!!
I think we are cycle twins haha I’m on CD2 right now!
Hoping that he makes it home with good timing this month, his schedule keeps changing, we might not get a chance to try til [name_u]November[/name_u] now.
Wow, that’s so interesting, thanks @Kibby. It’s reassuring to know at least someone has had a luteal dip become a BFP!
I haven’t had a luteal dip in the four cycles I charted pre-TTC, but I had a pretty significant dip yesterday at 8DPO. Looking at this study, they can appear on pregnancy and non-pregnancy charts, but they’re 79.8% more likely to be pregnancy charts.
So, no guarantees but at least it gives me some hope for the rest of the TWW!
I’m crossing my fingers for you!!! That looks promising! I hope it’s an implantation dip. Did you notice any other possible indicators?? Implantation for me has always come with a 2 day long lower back ache! I had one from 5-7dpo in that [name_u]March[/name_u] chart, and you can see my positive test on 8dpo!! Which was crazy. I never test that early, and generally don’t recommend it, but I just knew, you know??
Thanks @Kibby! I can’t believe you got your BFP at 8dpo, that’s incredible. So many women just seem to know when they’re pregnant, aren’t our bodies/minds amazing?
I’ve had a few things which can be early pregnancy symptoms, and are out of the norm for me generally or at this time of the month (cramping, vivid dreams, fatigue). And none of the pre-AF symptoms (bloating, swollen breasts, spots around my jawline)… YET!
But nothing conclusive enough that I’d be like “omg, I’m definitely pregnant!”
I’m 10dpo today, and AF would be due in 3-4 days normally, so probably still a bit early to test. Sigh!
Fingers crossed for you! Have you given in and tested yet?
CD 15 here and my OPKs are getting stronger, so hopefully a positive OPK is coming soon!
@kibby Yes, we must be cycle Cysters haha!! Hoping your schedules align and you all can try before [name_u]November[/name_u] - that must be difficult and frustrating!
@minxtruck I’m so excited to know if you tested! It sounds super promising!
@jesabel hope you get your positive OPK soon!
Last cycle I didn’t get any reaction at all from the OPKs (think it might have been anovulatory which is not uncommon for me ) but! I just got a faint line today! I know that it doesn’t mean anything to get faint lines with an OPK - it’s either positive or negative. But I still let myself get excited anyway lol! So let’s hope it continues to get stronger and it isn’t just the universe baiting me
Thanks @meyera4 and @Archer27! [name_m]Just[/name_m] got my positive OPK on the night of CD16, was getting worried there for a sec!
@Archer27 [name_f]Hope[/name_f] you get your positive opk soon too! Fingers crossed for all of us trying this cycle.
So AF was due yesterday - no show. Took an easy@home strip test this morning and got a faint but definite line! Cautiously optimistic but apprehensive after a mmc in [name_u]March[/name_u]. Going to get a digital test to do tomorrow morning
Congratulations @sabrielschild wishing you the best as time proceeds!
@Archer27 during this emotional process we hold on to any positive steps and hope we can.
Congratulations @sabrielschild, can’t wait to hear how your digital test goes!
Good luck to everyone in their fertile window or TWW at the moment. Sending baby dust to you all!
Gah I was so hopeful you had an implantation dip. All the luck next cycle!
