How does the CBFM work pixie - what does it read to cause the high? And, er, I totally didn't clock you were starting the TTC wagon. Exciting!!

Well helloooo! grin

Its kind of cool that it fell apart because everyone who decided to have a second got magically updiffed the next day! You lucky bastards

I would like to be counting cycles but I absolutely refuse to until my stupid body sorts itself and starts laying eggs in the proper fashion. As it is I'm on CD17 and have had a high reading on the CBFM since CD6 with no peak. Last month was a ricockulous 22 days. So I could be ovulating soon or starting my period soon, who knows. Its like a really shitty magical mystery tour in my ovaries right now.

I'm here, starting 2ww for cycle four smile

Hi, so I just ordered some pregnancy tests on eBay. Still no bleeding but been off pill for over 2 weeks now. Since I have no idea where I'm up to 'cycle-wise' is it best to give it another month or so then test again?

Hi
Can I join too?

I have a 24 month old DD and this is my 2nd cycle, though not sure if last month counts as really didn't make much effort!

previous histroy; ttc for 7 months, bfp then mc at 11 weeks.
Bought a cbfm and got lucky 1st time.

Haven't dug cbfm out yet, have tried ovulation calculator app.... If AF turns up next week I shall be blowing the dust off the cbfm!!

bunnygirl80 Sun 29-Jul-12 21:52:43

The trying is the fun bit show grin

Showmethemhappyfeet Sun 29-Jul-12 17:09:02

A bfn sad oh well, at least we get to keep trying!

Any news showme?

Showmethemhappyfeet Sat 28-Jul-12 13:54:07

bunny congratulations!! grin
I'm heading home tonight do will test tomorrow, and then get on with some either swi/celebration since I haven't seen DP for over a week!

smile smile smile

bunnygirl80 Fri 27-Jul-12 11:09:55

Ok, I caved and tested, even though af not due to another couple of days.........it's a bfp grin

bunnygirl80 Fri 27-Jul-12 00:03:07

muumi I'm sure most of my symptoms are in my head too! So far I have one sore boob, a slightly bloated tummy (which could be the whole pizza I ate last night!), and I feel a bit nauseous all the time. The sicky feeling started last week when I had a stomach bug, and it's carried on ever since, despite it starting way to early to be pg related!

Ooooh, exciting with all the symptom spotting.

Still nothing happening here, haven't had much time to think about it tbh. Apparently the average time for ERTD to return when breastfeeding on demand is when DC is 14 months, so hoping I've not got too much longer to wait.

Muumimamma2 Thu 26-Jul-12 09:53:18

Hi bunny, I've been symptom spotting like mad too, and I know it sounds crazy but I just feel pregnant. I gather it must all be in my head as my period isn't even due until next week, but somehow it just feels the same as last time when I was pregs! What kind of symptoms have you been noticing?

Now I'm worried though as we've been moving house and I've been working really hard and also carrying loads of stuff, maybe it won't make a difference yet though if by some miracle I am pregnant hmm

bunnygirl80 Thu 26-Jul-12 02:01:11

Opk is an ovulation test. You can get them anywhere you buy pg tests from, but you can also get hundreds of them super cheap from eBay or amazon. If you know how long your cycles last then you just start peeing on them mid cycle, and you'll get a positive when you're about 24hrs from ovulation. I've never used them as I have irregular cycles (although I've got some to try out next month) so I temp instead. It doesn't tell me when I'm about to ovulate, just that it's happened, so at least I know when we can take a break from swi

Showmethemhappyfeet Wed 25-Jul-12 21:53:14

I did a test the week I was due a bleed. It was negative but maybe it was too early? Been off the pill 3 or 4 days now and still nothing. Will do a test at the weekend.
Since it will no doubt be neg, what's an opk? And where do I get them?

bunnygirl80 Wed 25-Jul-12 21:45:21

Ooh show if you didn't have a bleed after your last pill break maybe you do a test just in case. You never know, maybe you'll be lucky enough to skip the ttc madness

I'm symptom spotting like mad at the moment. My temp chart looks a bit crazy with temps up and down every day, when normally its pretty flat. Have now compared and the only other time it's done that was the cycle I got pg with DS. My only other symptom is one very sore boob, but DS did stand on it when he was using me as a climbing frame, so I think it's probably from that

Alabama100 Wed 25-Jul-12 19:54:38

show maybe you could use those opk if you want a rough idea when you're ovulating? bunny let us know once you've tested!

Showmethemhappyfeet Tue 24-Jul-12 11:57:02

Hi all, my DD has just turned 2 and was a lovely surprise baby. Iv no idea about ovulation days/cycle lengths, all I'm reading here is going totally over my head!! Recently had the impact removed, went on pill for a month and had a normal bleed, pill for another month, no bleed in the break, started on the next pack but have now stopped about a week in. Not a clue how to figure out where i am!confused

bunnygirl80 Tue 24-Jul-12 11:24:45

Hello show and muumi

Sounds like we are pretty much cycle buddies muumi smile My af is due on Monday, but if I don't have any sign by the weekend then I'll do a sneaky test. I'm usually a big believer in waiting until af is actually late before testing, but we're off on holiday on Tuesday, and I'll need time to get over the devastation of missing out on cocktails on the beach if I get a bfp grin

Alabama100 Tue 24-Jul-12 06:54:11

Of course! Welcome highheels :-)

Muumimamma2 Mon 23-Jul-12 21:51:46

Hello everyone, may I join also? Have a little girl who'll be 2 in a couple of weeks, hoping to have another one so that there's no more than 3 school years between them... which means I need to get pregnant by November, roughly. First month trying, will be testing soon although it's still early, should really wait for next week or at least the weekend but just too impatient!

I've got my fingers crossed for everyone here smile
