Maple29: Skyla D:
I'm going to join you ladies! I'm 3dpo, but am not that hopeful... That bloody licorice root didnt affect DH too well so I would just be staggered if I got a BFP. But of course because I'm in the 2ww I keep imagining all these pregnancy symptoms and thinking every little sign means it actually happened... Just crazy!
Luckily you can buy these awesome preg tests here online that can tell you if you're pg as early as 7 days post ov. They measure hcg at a much lower level that most tests, which is why you can take them earlier. I used them for both my sons and found out 7dpo with both... So I'm thinking I will test in 4 or 5 days.
Hoping to hear positive results from you all! Good luck to us all!!
Hi Skyla - just wondering (if you don't mind), what effect Licorice Root had on your DH? All the best, good luck! X
Of course I dont mind sharing Maple, as long as you dont mind tmi!! DH is naturally very high in testosterone and is very virile. After 2 weeks on licorice root, he could barely perform (he can normally go 2-3 times in a row but was severely struggling to do it once). Sex seriously took forever (I was chaffed red raw down below), and when he finished, the volume of what came out was barely half of what normally does. As a result, we only managed to do it once after my positive OPK, and I am worried there was barely any sperm there to swim up and meet that egg! He seriously couldn't go again the next morning, and I was way too sore anyway. So that's why I dont hold much hope of a BPF this month... And if its negative, I think we will be ditching the licorice root next month!!
Thanks for all the lovely well wishes ladies- fingers and toes crossed for you all, xx
