Well the Easter thread was getting rather full so I thought I would start this.
Pick a coloured ribbon and dance round the big old fertility symbol.

NoTeaForMe Tue 04-Sep-12 19:11:19

Don't you need to be pregnant now or this month at least to get a May baby?

I am TTC at the mo and would love it to work this month, I'm currently in the dreaded 2ww!

What about you?

Pipbin Tue 04-Sep-12 20:02:19

This is true. Oh well, it's such a good fertility symbol it was too good to miss.

I'm technically in the TWW but I know that AF is on her way.

Squirrel77 Tue 04-Sep-12 20:55:31

Can we dance around the Cerne Abbas Giant instead? Attaching my ribbon to his...er...tackle.

Also in the TWW, but looking very unpromising...

Pipbin Tue 04-Sep-12 21:18:48

I grew up in the next village to the giant.
And wouldn't you just know who has turned up to join this tread with me. Yes it's AF in all her glory.

Squirrel77 Tue 04-Sep-12 21:28:41

Sorry to hear that. Maybe the HSG frightened the egg this month but cleared the way for next month!

Pipbin Tue 04-Sep-12 21:35:00

Thats what I'm thinking Squirrel.
Also there has been much less spotting that I have ever had before.

NoTeaForMe Tue 04-Sep-12 21:54:51

I can't decide if it looks promising or not...I'm reading into every little thing and that's a dangerous game! Not due on for about a week though, so surely all signs are in my head and not actual signs?!

Sorry to hear AF has arrived Pipbin and I have no idea what HSG is...

ShiftyFades Tue 04-Sep-12 22:21:14

sad sorry AF has arrived Pipbin sad

AF was due yesterday if I was having a 28 day cycle (normal) so I guess I've got "any time in the next week" to wait judging by some of the ones I've had this year wink

Haven't rung GP for blood results yet, must do that tomorrow and get an appointment with any doctor other than Dr Twat wink

Had an awfully hot afternoon in the office, even had damp arm pits blush
So that means: early menopause / pregnancy / AF on her way confused

I'm not even going to think about it lies unconvincingly

Pipbin Tue 04-Sep-12 23:07:08

If the weather was anything like it was here then it was actually very hot today, but over cast and close.

Hi NoTea an HSG is where they send dye up your lady areas and xray it so they can see if your tubes go where they should do. In my case one of them does.

welcome notea, hope you are lucky this month.

well 10DPO so tested with an internet cheapie this morning and got a BFN, to be expected really, will test again in 2 days time at a more respectable 12DPO.

like the new symbol, both maypole and Cerne giant!!

shifty my surgery ring if there is anything of concern otherwise they leave it. It was the same with my fertility blood tests they took. I rang them up and they said "everything is normal". I then had to make app to see GP to get a printout and see what normal really meant. so it could be a good sign??

opps posted on wrong thread
sorry AF got you pipbin sad

ShiftyFades Wed 05-Sep-12 08:47:28

Black my surgery is the same so no news is good news.
Hopefully I can get a referral back to gynaecology as I'm reasonably sure my endometriosis is back.

AF arrived this morning the bitch so I'm back on day 1
Last month was a respectable 29 day cycle.
So will look to using OPK around day 11 onwards.

In a fair bit of pain already sad

ShiftyFades Wed 05-Sep-12 09:47:44

Ooo, she's gone straight for "heavy", like they used to be....
But heavy at the start normally equals much pain (I'm drugged up to the eyeballs).
Sigh....

blackcatsdancing Wed 05-Sep-12 11:33:32

that sucks shifty. I've always been very lucky with mine. rare i take anything for the pain as pain usually doesn't exist. I don't think bad pain is normal though so hope you get another referral.

ShiftyFades Wed 05-Sep-12 14:43:43

Feel quite grumpy and am constantly running to the loo (wearing white today blush)
I've had 2 laparoscopies and was about to have a 3rd when I fell with DS. I wonder if I need a bit more lasering?!!

Squirrel77 Wed 05-Sep-12 17:19:00

Haha I never wear white - far too clumsy, AF or not!

Shifty sorry to hear about the endo. I have it as well - had a laproscopy in 2009 and am now wondering if it is contributing to my inability to get preggo. I have just been referred to for more 'investigations' (shudder) - trying to figure out whether this will involve a HSG or because I already have confirmed endo would they just got straight to a laparoscopy and dye - any thoughts?

In other news, I am currently 10 DPO and going mental as usual! Latest 'symptoms' are a gross sour taste in my mouth that has persisted all day, and not wanting Mr S to touch me...hmmmm....probably just PMS? Feel free to indulge me...

Pipbin Wed 05-Sep-12 20:58:03

Thanks Black
Hey Shifty Looks like we are cycle buddies this month.
Sorry AF got you. We are BOTH going to get BFPs this month and thats all there is to it.

ShiftyFades Wed 05-Sep-12 23:31:36

grin I love you pipbin grin
The gauntlet has been set: 2 BFPs are on order wink
Squirrel I think the sensible thing would be another laparoscopy tbh. Once they know you have it they tend to not mess around. My gynae gave me 6 months to get pg, we tried (badly & at the wrong time) for 5 months and I used OPK the last month and was bloody lucky. We'd been trying 3-5 days too early blush each time!!

So flipping heavy this evening sad

But I've made a glorious chocolate cake wink
All will be well once I've eaten some grin

NoTeaForMe Thu 06-Sep-12 09:41:13

Can I just ask how you know for sure what dpo you are? My OPK had a smiley face last Monday so do I count Wed as 1dpo? Am I 9dpo today?

Thanks

ShiftyFades Thu 06-Sep-12 10:22:06

I used the day I got the positive OPK, I think it said on the package that it's within 24hrs of that. So could be 30mins or 23hrs and 59 mins if you take it literally.

Not sure what others do.

Pipbin Thu 06-Sep-12 12:31:31

As I've been doing this since forever now I seem to have added a new method each time.
I use opks and a CBFM then put those details plus my temp into fertility friend.

NoTeaForMe Thu 06-Sep-12 13:01:39

Hmm...nothing is clear then really! Right well I think I'll take Tues as 1dpo, so that would make me 10dpo today. Can't be far wrong can it!

Squirrel77 Thu 06-Sep-12 13:07:14

Just to complicate matters...I chart my temperatures as well and often they go up to days after the OPK is positive. So it can be anywhere from the day the smiley face appears to two days later.

I am 11 DPO and got a BFN this morning. However my boobs are on F-I-R-E so I am still holding out hope!

NoTeaForMe Thu 06-Sep-12 13:13:42

Aaaah! Maybe I'll think I'm 9dpo then. That way if I'm wrong at least I won't test too early or anything...does that make sense.

It's too hard not to read into all these little feelings etc though! I'm already going mad!

Thanks for your help
