I only get a positive for one wee!

winkle2 Fri 16-Nov-12 19:30:31

Bunny I only got 1 positive too.

Aquarius1 Fri 16-Nov-12 20:58:27

bunny I got a positive two days in a row last month on the clearblue smiley face test. first time I'd used it. Don't think there should be anything unusual about one positive from what I've read.

Well whaddya know, Easyjet have emailed to apologise and pay my €400 compensation for my delayed flight! I only posted the letter on Monday. Didn't expect that!

We have told a fair few people about the pg, parents, siblings and eight or so close friends. I'll have to tell my colleague (who is also a close friend) soon because we effectively run a small business together and we are making plans for next year, so it's only fair. My thinking is that all the people who know are people I would want to be aware if we had a mc, and would want to support us in that situation. I also feel very dishonest around people close to me who don't know - I know it's silly but I feel like I'm withholding the truth somehow!

Janey your colleague is unbelievable! Maybe some more salacious rumours about him need to appear in the office to deflect attention from your mammaries?

happylass Fri 16-Nov-12 21:42:38

Yes * Bunny* I only got a smile for one day last cycle when using the CB digi OPK for the first time. When using the cheap Internet dippy sticks the line seemed to hang around a bit longer though confused

Badleg Fri 16-Nov-12 21:45:16

Aquarius - my plaster cast comes off on tues! It's been 6 long weeks non weight bearing!

I am thinking of getting an app for my iPhone to keep track of things does anyone use one or recommend one?

Pipbin Fri 16-Nov-12 21:52:20

I use Fertility Friend, but I have to say their app has wound me up a but so I tend to track on the mobile site.

Aquarius1 Fri 16-Nov-12 23:02:14

Hurrah badleg hope you manage to get your strength back before not too long & its not too painful. my dh was non weight bearing on both legs for 2 mths-ish (long story) -he was like bambi taking his first steps.

I use Iperiod which gives you alerts when you're in a fertile week or af is due. Useful if you keep inputting your info.

Bunnygirlie Fri 16-Nov-12 23:43:30

Badleg I use My Days and Pink Pad on my iPad.

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Fri 16-Nov-12 23:57:25

I use My Days..

winkle2 Sat 17-Nov-12 09:35:14

I used period tracker and iperiod

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sat 17-Nov-12 09:56:56

My Days is pretty decent. It's not too complicated and it appears to do what it says on the tin. You can also track bbt on it and make notes eg quality of cm etc.

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sat 17-Nov-12 09:58:05

janey I would say your colleague is halfway to a sexual harassment lawsuit...

Rache1S Sat 17-Nov-12 15:16:39

I threw up my Dad's street earlier on. It just came out of nowhere and happened before I had time to dash to a toilet. I could see several curtains twitching, no doubt frowning on the size of my 'hangover.' Oh, the shame!

Quodlibet Sat 17-Nov-12 16:00:23

Oh no Rachel poor you! I have felt sicker today than normal, like moderately bad car sickness. It's yuck.

Still haven't been contacted by the antenatal team for my booking in/scan, they were meant to contact me by Friday. I've rung the NHS 'choose n book' but all they can say is 'we'll flag it with the hospital and they will ring you in the next 7 days'. I'm probably worrying unnecessarily but I don't want it to take ages to get an appointment and then them not to have any before Xmas.

janey1234 Sat 17-Nov-12 16:54:08

Quod - mine isn't until 28th December sad

Quodlibet Sat 17-Nov-12 17:35:14

Well exactly. We are out of London between Xmas and new year too sad

Rache1S Sat 17-Nov-12 17:45:38

Quod mine didn't ring for nearly 2 weeks, but when she finally did she had appointment available practically straight away. It's difficult not to worry about absolutely everything when PG but i'm sure it will be fine. Christmas is still quite far off.

Bunnygirlie Sat 17-Nov-12 21:45:43

Evening all ladies!
Had my first reflexology appointment today, feeling quite positive after speaking to her and having my feet fiddled with. My friend recommended her (told her it was for my IBS) and she just so happens to specialise in fertility, helped my friends friend after they'd been trying for 2 years :-)

To all TTCers - she did mention a few interesting things -
Like my doctor she said don't DTD every day just every other day.
She recommends organic milk as they inject cows with hormones which isn't good for fertility.
She said to drink around 2 litres of water a day to lubricate things!
And the water that you drink should be filtered not tap water as lots of excreted oestrogen in the water bad for fertility - yuck!!!

So here's hoping it all works x

Pipbin Sat 17-Nov-12 23:31:38

Interesting stuff Bunny.
I filter my water at home but not at work. Might start taking in bottled water.

However the sceptical side of me wonders if she has any studies to back these claims up.
For example, there is no scientific study that says we should drink 8 glasses of water a day, but that is passed off as fact all the time.

winkle2 Sun 18-Nov-12 00:38:21

Thanks for the info bunny

We did go organic a few months ago but we stopped as its too expensive. Would have def kept it up if we could afford it.

Badleg Sun 18-Nov-12 00:43:25

How interesting bunny. I was thinking about giving reflexology a go after my Physio recommended someone. Was a bit sceptical but if nothing else it might be relaxing!

I have just finished watching breaking dawn part 1 and hoping I don't suffer like bella when I finally get pregnant!!!

Night everyone

winkle2 Sun 18-Nov-12 20:02:14

Looks like its going to be Cd1 for me tomorrow and month 16 sad

janey1234 Sun 18-Nov-12 20:06:19

In sorry winkle sad x

Pipbin Sun 18-Nov-12 20:34:56

Oh balls Winkle. Was that a short cycle? I'm sure we were cycle buddies.
