Here we go ladies...this really IS it for us all!

Hi ladies. I'm not sure if some of you want to hear this but you may find it useful/helpful in the future. I went for another scan this morning. I've been having pains on my right near the pelvic area since the last scan. The good news is baby P is fine and now has a loud beating heart and the other news is they found a tiny bruise full of blood on one of my ovaries which is what is causing the pain. Apparently this is normal, she had to tell me 6x for me to believe it. Oh and for those ever having an internal scan I was told to empty my bladder twice so don't go in with a full bladder! You only need one of those for tummy scans. My 12 week scan is booked now so I just need to sit tight and try and relax fat chance so to speak!

Fantastic news. How do you feel?

And that's interesting. I think Maclairey mentioned something similar.

So relieved!! I knew something was up and it was scaring me! I can handle the pain now I know what it is and it's not hurting baby! I'll have to ask Mclairey about her scenario. Now that they know about my tilting uterus they're a bit more gentle so the scan wasn't painful.

Hope everyone is doing well and we see some smiley faces this weekend!!

I'm not expecting my smiley until Tuesday...maybe I'll get a surprise, but no OV pain yet.

Booked in DTD later on :-) Then again tomorrow night. I much prefer night sex...gives the swimmers more hope of reaching target!

Then we are off to that fancy London on Sunday to watch Muse in Camden. I'll be exhausted on Monday, but it'll be worth it.

Will need to find the energy to DTD on Monday night somehow!

What's the deal with the tilting uterus then pear? Does that means its not quite the right position?

I want to test!

Stay away from the sticks! Or POAS!! Up to you :-) How long since your smiley?

DulcetMoans Fri 28-Sep-12 18:16:20

consults app 7 days. Might get another one this weekend, who knows! haha. It's not as much I want to test as I want to know! Just noticed app says I am on a regular day now though. That's depressing!

nic, I am concerned about your poor bits with all this action you are getting!

Ha ha...Conceive Plus is my friend! Can't see me doing this every month. Worth a go at least once though :-)

Hmmm, 7 days is a bit soon for POAS action! I'm in my fertile period, apparently. Hence the constant shagging!

Morning all...still no surge here. Feel a bit ovaryish today though, so fx it is on the way.

I'd be pissed off with no surge with all my shagging!

Yeah that was be a nightmare nic!

So, thought I would share this with you all! As some of you know, I chart with FF and this month for the first time I decided to use the CB OPKs

FF had detected my ov based on temps as Friday 21st but then I had a smiley on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd, which at the time I was confused by as I thought I had already ov'd! Well fast forward to today and based on the temps I have been entering since last weekend, FF has recalculated ov to be on Monday 24th Sept! This makes me 5DPO today!

As for DTD, we did it every day from Weds 18th - Sunday 23rd, but then DH went away so didn't actually DTD on day of ov or the day after sad much less hopeful now, and worried my LP isn't going to be very long!!

Basically saying that FF and clearblue now both agree that I ov'd on the same day!! Sorry for the waffle! smile

'would' be a nightmare*

DulcetMoans Sat 29-Sep-12 10:19:52

Aw lets, how annoying! But if you did ov on the Monday you should have had plenty of the fellas waiting around in there from all the DTD beforehand.

My app says its ov day, smiley disagreed!

Apparently, lets, you're actually more likely to get upduffed if you have sex in the 48 hours before OV, so you have swimmers sitting waiting for the egg to pop out :-) Don't worry too much.

Are you still POAS, Dulcet, to see if you get a second smiley?

I do think OV is brewing...should I be worried that I normally feel it on the left? Isn't it meant to alternate?

Will be shagging again tonight. Already done 8 days out of 13! Couldn't do this every month!!

Arrrghhhh...my nipples really hurt! Surely this means OV is on its way?!

Gonna be a painful gig tomorrow night with sore nips. Jumping may cause issues!

Lolcbcblemonlime Sat 29-Sep-12 14:26:01

Thinking of buying cb ov sticks. It's just over 20 quid for 20. Is it worth it? How many do u go through in a month?

It tells you to test from day 6 until you get a smiley, which I did the first month of using them. Now I know I OV quite late, I started at day 10 this month. Will probably use 8 or 9 this cycle.

I like them :-)

DulcetMoans Sat 29-Sep-12 15:50:50

I like them too. Don't go through 20 a month generally. Then again, not helped me get pg so far. Not sure of the purpose of fertility friend if it changes when you ov'd retrospectively. No help knowing after the fact, is it??

Yeah, still testing. Nothing since CD9. On CD17 now so may go until 20 and then give up.

peardrop2 Sat 29-Sep-12 16:17:37

I love them but then I guess I am bias?! The midwife sonographer yesterday dated me 6+3 so the textbook says I conceived on August 28th. Guess what happened on 28th?! Got the smiley! Do you think the books are true when they say fast swimmers are boys and slow swimmers are girls? If everyone used cb sticks and DTD on smiley day surely if that theory was right the world would be taken over by men?

Nicola I don't think it has to alternate. Are you sure you always feel it on your left? I thought we were opposite and you felt it on your right and I felt it on my left? Hmm perhaps I've forgotten. I've just been looking at my notes and it does say I released an egg from my right which is the ovary that has the small cyst.

lets It doesn't sound like a nightmare...it sounds like you could be brewing a girl ;-)

Lolcbcblemonlime Sat 29-Sep-12 16:24:58

I checked and still have 20 of the cheap ones which means I used 10 last month. So I'm tempted to use them one more month and then move on to cb if not pg. all these apps are doing my head in also as they each day ill ov on a different day. But the general average is from next sun to sun after (!!) so ill get opk out as of fri and see. Was just reading on a new app I downloaded that it takes an average of 104 shags to conceive! So nic your doing well.
Also says 1 in 10 women in uk confess about getting DH to come home from work for a shag due to ov sticks lol!

No, mostly my left and that's where I felt the pop last cycle. Though I did get some pain in the right.

It seems to start in the left mainly though.

Want the OV pain to start properly. It's annoying me now, even though it started on CD16 last month and it is CD14 today.

Ooh...that's good re smilies and timings :-)

Shows it works.

peardrop2 Sat 29-Sep-12 16:34:49

Oh OK Nicola, so that means that my OV pain was always on the right when yours was on the left...which would mean I didn't alternate...so there is your answer!

peardrop2 Sat 29-Sep-12 16:36:07

Still freaks me out when you say you felt a pop! So amazing that you're that in tune with your body...quite astonishing!

Ha ha...stupid that I'm willing the pain to arrive. Wonder if my sore nipples are the start of it?!

It was freaky...I'm hoping to never feel it again! The smiley will do :-)
