PurpleDana Tue 20-Nov-12 17:39:09

Hi anna good luck

shellshock7 Tue 20-Nov-12 18:23:28

magoo hope all is good with you smile

Sorry everyone else seems to be feeling a bit down, hopefully magoo will be the start of the good news. I'm on the 2ww I think, it all went so wrong last month I'm not sure of anything now so still DTD just in case wink

Hi anna fingers crossed for this month for you

magoosmom Tue 20-Nov-12 21:40:24

Thanks shell bit tired and slightly nauseous at times but I don't mind that cos it means I'm still pregnant!!!
A little bit of good news to cheer you all up, DBIl and wife announced to the family this evening that they are 11 weeks and just had their first scan today gringringringringrin they've being trying for 8 years and been through IVF a few times, they got pregnant naturally having given up completely. DON'T GIVE UP grin

Hi purple and thank you smile
Hi Shell lets hope its the start of something for us all....fx
Hi Magoo Good luck and a happy healthy pregnancy smile

Well its only dpo3 and im already driving myself nuts lol! Is it time to poas now wink

shellshock7 Thu 22-Nov-12 20:39:07

Hmm, CD20 and think I may be ovulating now (not testing this month)? Hope this means that my cycle length may only be a day longer than expected and not 6 like last month sad

Out of interest how long post ovulation do you DTD for conception (not fun!) purposes?

PurpleDana Fri 23-Nov-12 23:32:52

We're not testing for ovulation or anything, we just dtd more the week around typical ovulation, so days 10-17ish I guess.

shellshock7 Wed 28-Nov-12 20:21:39

How's everyone doing? It's quiet so I assume no exciting news but they say no news is good news so fingers crossed grin

So, AF officially due Sat, but last cycle I was 6 days late....is it too early to POAS tomorrow??!!! confused

WinterLover Wed 28-Nov-12 22:38:13

It's never too early to POAS grin

It's slow here, been 8 weeks since we last DTD sad getting fed up with it now. DPs on anti-depressants and has a slight side effect which means he struggles to 'relieve' himself sad

GaryBuseysTeeth Wed 28-Nov-12 22:43:19

Me who was horse, but name changed.

I got a BFP on Saturday, sort of believing it now.
DH is happy for me to spend all the money on cb digital tests!

Good luck poas Shell, think it might be slightly early, although you could get a line on a really sensitive test!

((Winter)), hope DP 'picks up' soon. Is it something you're discussing with him, or are you trying not to put too much pressure on him?

Hope everyone else is ok!!

shellshock7 Fri 30-Nov-12 15:54:28

winter hope things pick up for you soon smile

gary congrats grin that's great news!

I peed, 'twas negative, peed again today, 'twas negative....roll on tomorrow ha ha

PurpleDana Fri 30-Nov-12 20:44:44

Wow gary that's great! :-)
Not so good for u winter :-(
I'm just coming to end of fertile period and into 2ww, but hubby hurt his back at work on weds and we ended up in a&e last night! So no dtd for last few days :-(

WinterLover Sun 02-Dec-12 12:00:33

TMI but so relieved DP can 'relieve' himself grin we're viewing a house on Monday which is 4 bedrooms so means as he said he can make me fat again if we get the house.

In such a good mood now

shellshock7 Sun 02-Dec-12 22:15:26

So heavy period pains all day and lag night but no AF....looks like last month again then and I could be in for this for 6 days before AF finally arrives.

So I find myself in the position of TTC yet wishing AF would just arrive. Depressing sad

shellshock7 Sun 02-Dec-12 22:16:05

*last night, not lag!

WinterLover Mon 03-Dec-12 13:05:20

Oh no shellshock sadthats not a nice feeling

shellshock7 Mon 03-Dec-12 18:18:41

Well I feel a fraud for soliciting unwarranted sympathy....I got my BFP this morning?! All I can assume (hope) is that it was implantation pains, I never had anything like that with DS or MMC which is why I assumed the worst...only tested at lunch time as the pain had gone! smile

GaryBuseysTeeth Mon 03-Dec-12 18:24:07

grin shellshock!!! Congratulations!

Dana, oh! Hope DH's back isn't too bad atm? Has he slipped something?

Winter, good news, fingers crossed you get the house!

WinterLover Tue 04-Dec-12 07:48:48

Yay congratulations shellshocked fantastic news

shellshock7 Tue 04-Dec-12 10:59:21

Thanks, I'm sill in shock!

Good luck everyone else smile

PurpleDana Tue 04-Dec-12 21:16:03

smile congratulations shell!!!!
gary my hubby works in a care home and when a resident fell he went to catch her and hurt his back. She weighs 17 stone so ouch! He is just recovering now so tentative dtd last night ;-)

magoosmom Tue 04-Dec-12 22:15:42

Just came back to see how you all were doing, delighted to see two BFP's gringrin congrats shell and horse!!! I'm 6+4 and sick as a dog, all for a good cause tho so it's ok smile
good luck everyone else, I'll be thinking of you with fingers crossed.

PurpleDana Wed 05-Dec-12 21:34:42

Thanks magoo, isn't morning sickness a sign of a healthy & well established pregnancy? According to the old wives tales anyway lol, so all sounds good for u :-)
I'm battling convincing myself that my noticeable weight gain this last week or so is a symptom! It's probably more weight gain associated with feeling low that all this trying is getting nowhere :-(
