Hi everyone - I've started the new thread as our original one is nearly full.

I really hope that this is the one where we all get our BFPs and don't have to experience any more heartache.

YorkshirePeanut Mon 08-Oct-12 09:26:22

Thanks for the shiny new thread Woody! I second the sentiment - here's hoping for BFPs all round!

Leading straight on from where we left off - what's FMU? Off for a google...

Messtins thanks, you and me both - fx it won't be too much longer or at least if it is the doctor will finally do something about it! Hope you don't follow suit, sending prompt AF vibes your way (or a BFP of course!)

YorkshirePeanut Mon 08-Oct-12 09:31:37

Aaah thank goodness for google. Woody I don't think FMU would make a difference, it's still a BFN and has been for weeks - tbh it's more concentrated after a 12 hour shift than it is first thing in the morning anyway because I always forget to drink at work. I'll be trying again next Sunday anyway so it'll pick up then if I just missed it, but I just can't stand the constant testing any more 'just in case' - I'm having to be strict with myself before I have a breakdown! xxx

Just marking my place and thanks woody for the new thread.

I third that and really hope this thread will see us all get our bfp's!!!!

hi girls, room for another? smile new on here (unfortunately due to mc last week) but feeling positive and have my fingers crossed for everybody. got the ovulation tests off ebay - only £2.50 and worked last time so hopefully once my body sorts itself out we'll be able to get on the DTD bandwagon once again xx

Just marking my space< lifts leg gracefully and marks> x

Do you think that you can have symptoms before you can get a BFP on a test? So, can you start feeling nauseous before you have enough hcg to come up on a test? I'm pretty sure that the first time that I got pg, I started feeling sick a bit before I got my BFP. And when I first started testing, I was getting almost invisible lines so I know if I'd tested when I started feeling sick, I would have got BFNs.

Hi janiewoozle - sorry that you've had to join us. You sound really positive though about ttc again. I've started using ov tests for the first time this month.

YorkshirePeanut Mon 08-Oct-12 11:53:16

Ha fizz you're such a lady!

Hi janie sorry you're with us but nice to see some positivity! Mental note to self to do some happy thinking. I DO believe in Aunt Flo, I do, I do! (worked for Tinkerbell...)

Woody I'm sure you can. My friend knew she was pregnant about 2dpo because she started throwing up, her husband didn't believe her until she got her BFP two weeks later! Am hoping good things are a-brewing for you!

Can anyone tell I've got a day off today? Must do something constructive other than pootling on the internet looking for miracle cures for missing AF! Oooh, I know, I'll go and brush the dog's teeth, and then maybe I'll go mental and wash the sofa covers. My life is so glamorous..

woody17 Mon 08-Oct-12 11:59:15

yorkshirepeanut have you thought about acupuncture to bring on af? Apparently it works really at doing this, regulating cycles etc!

YorkshirePeanut Mon 08-Oct-12 12:11:49

woody great minds think alike, I've got my first appointment booked with the lady with the needles on Thursday at 3. Hopefully she can stab AF into obedience!

kittykatskumkwat Mon 08-Oct-12 12:44:49

Pink!!! Yuck
Welcome janie, sorry you've had to join us
Woody, yes I believe you can, my friend tested because she was feeling sick, got bfn tested again a few days later and she though bfn again although left it over night and a very very faint line, she ruled it out and then a month later under her mums insistence did another as she felt so Ill and she was and almost 12wks!!

messtins Mon 08-Oct-12 13:25:08

Hello - was going to say "just marking my space" but Pink has put me off! Welcome janie sorry you find yourself here but hope your positivity is soon rewarded.
I do acupuncture on my dog, do you think if they showed me the points I could do it on myself and save forking out £40 a time? grin

Lolcbcblemonlime Mon 08-Oct-12 13:26:10

Hello marking my place smile

woody17 Mon 08-Oct-12 13:33:24

messtins I don't think I'd be able to put the needles into myself!

Ah I hope she gets it sorted yorkshirepeanut

I really hope this constant nausea since Saturday is a sign!

YorkshirePeanut Mon 08-Oct-12 13:39:16

messtins your dog lets you poke it with needles? I can't even make mine sit still long enough to brush her stinky chops! She just keeps eating the toothpaste

janiewoozle Mon 08-Oct-12 14:01:40

thanks for your welcomes - and yes i'm doing my best to feel positive - hope i can pass on some positive vibes!

i would be really interested in the accupuncture! i'd never herd of it for regulating your cycles. i always had really irregular periods (50days) so i might look into that. how soon after mc would you try it? or i also heard of angus cactus? anybody have any experience with that

littlepinkfizz Mon 08-Oct-12 14:04:20

Sorry girls for putting you off! Couldn't resist! < chuckles>

MunchinMango Mon 08-Oct-12 14:12:08

Eh girls - woody, kitty, peanut, this new talk of feeling pg but getting bfns for a while before bfp has started me symptom checking and hoping again. I was eating an apple this morning and my teeth bled a little. They always bleed when I'm pg. seriously though I think it would be a miracle. i I just have to wait it out I guess. Woody fx for you.

Welcome Janie, sorry you had mc but fx for future.

Pink lol!!

Messtins your fog gets acupuncture?? Pity you couldn't self administer alright.

babyjamesblackberrycrumble Mon 08-Oct-12 14:13:23

Hello, marking my place too smile
Welcome Janie sorry you find yourself here. Please feel free to share your positive vibes with me.
I really really want to try acupuncture again but my DH is sceptical especially as its not cheap! I'm sure it helped me get pregnant with DS though and my cycles were all over the place.

babyjamesblackberrycrumble Mon 08-Oct-12 14:15:11

grin littlePink I seem to have missed that! I did choose a nice place to mark though wink

YorkshirePeanut Mon 08-Oct-12 14:48:35

janie agnus castus is supposed to work by affecting your prolactin levels, which in turn affects how much FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and oestrogen you produce. It's supposed to help regulate cycles, and you're meant to take it from CD1 until ovulation. There haven't been any studies showing overwhelming success but a few show a correlation with improved fertility in women with irregular/missing periods. In any case a systematic review has concluded it's safe to take as long as you're not on any fertility drugs - so no harm trying it! You can get it at Holland and Barrett..

Phew. Think I geeked out there for a minute. Hope nobody got hurt in that particular Attack of the Nerd.

janiewoozle Mon 08-Oct-12 15:14:26

thank you for your nerdyness! might give it a whirl - as you said, no harm in trying and it would be cheaper than accupuncture! x

JellyCurls Mon 08-Oct-12 15:15:08

Hey ladies, can i join you all? I had a cp in august and although i went from getting bfp to bfn i never had a real bleed. Still waiting on first visit from AF since, now at 45 days (or 37 from day i got bfn) and shes still absent. Any ideas to get things back on track?

MrsJLS85 Mon 08-Oct-12 18:27:24

Hi ladies, just popping in to say hi, I've been a bit MIA as I've had horrible (but lovely and reassuring) morning sickness. Am now past 6 weeks, so really hoping this is the one. Going for an early scan next week.

Fingers crossed to you all - I'm sure this new thread will bring everyone their BFPs!!

woody17 Mon 08-Oct-12 20:59:31

jessie really good to hear from you and glad that everything is going ok.

Hello jellycurls sorry that you've had to join us but this is a really nice thread (I think). Have you been to see your GP? The only thing I can suggest to try and get af to start is to maybe look into acupuncture. I've just started having it (to hopefully help me conceive and then have a healthy pg - FX) but I've heard that it can be used to bring on af, regulate cycles.

Hello babyjames how are you doing? The place that I go to for my acupuncture has a multi-bed room - basically there's a few of you in the same room have acupuncture at the same time but it makes it a lot cheaper. I've definitely felt a lot more positive since having the acupuncture, although I can't really explain why.

munchin when do you think you'll test?

Well, I'm still symptom spotting even though I promised myself that I wouldn't so now as well as the nausea, I have very mild cramping/twinges in my lower abdomen and my boobs feel weird - they are almost tingling, I can't really explain it.
