I know this probably is asked all the time here but can you all share your symptoms during that dreaded 2ww? I have a 14 month old son and an angel baby and we are currently trying for #2. We are only on 4-5 dpo and this was our first month trying. We will have to skip May because of how busy we will be and then back to it in June if we don't get pregnant this cycle. Thanks!

So sorry for both of your loses <3

I do not temp. Never have. But am thinking about trying it if we don't conceive this month. Do you? I honestly don't even know how it works. The only "symptoms" I've had are some dull cramps in my uterus like AF is coming, quite a bit of CM, and gassy. I had a 3 day long headache while ovulating which is normal for me so I'm not counting that. And yes, good luck to you too :))

Yes. You temp everyday at the same time before you get up. You have to have 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Which believe me I know its hard we co sleep with our 2 year old. I use fertility friend its pretty easy, We have been ttc since august 2014 which is when my pp af showed. I have a little crampy I noticed there hasn't been as much cm like it was the last couple of days. Which with Ds I was dry when I got my bfp. With my last bfp I had tons of cm.

It stresses me out too but I can't help but do it. Always have haha. And that's the same with my son, no symptoms until that + test.

I gave up symptom spotting also. I'm not really looking for anything also. Only thing that's wrong with me are soar boobs, mild cramping from time to time, and a soar uterus. Sorry that I'm no help.

Oh okay, and then just when the temp rises that means ovulation? Thank you! And I hear you on the uninterrupted sleep haha. Thanks for the help!!

Yes. Fertility Friend will usually give you crosshairs where you ovulated. :)
