Hi! I am due my period in the next few days (I hope! that's a first ;)) then I will officially be ttc! Very exciting times...

So I thought I would start a nice friendly thread so we can go on our ttc journey together!!

I have been taking folic acid when I remember the last few weeks or so and came off the pill a few months ago.. I'm not entirely sure of my cycles yet, but think I'm due thurs or fri..

So come say hi! x

Sorry for your loss ninjasquirell hmm I wish you all the best for the future x

ninja so sorry to hear about your mc. My dd would have been 3.10 when it was due (2weeks away) and I haven't got my bfp yet so my gap will be almost 5 years.

HayleBoppingAroundTheXmasTree Wed 12-Dec-12 12:34:02

Sorry that doesn't make sense. I had an mc in June and should be 38 weeks ATM. Meaning dd would have been almost four when baby was due.

Sorry for your loss. And thanks for your patience... also for suggesting .... Yeah i will soon be seeing my doctor. I am 12 days away from my last period and am experiencing menstrual cramps .... though no bleeding or spotting as of now. Still feeling nausea and tired ... also dizzy. Let me see if my Gyn helps me out.

@CrackerJackShack : hmm ... I guess its too early for you to take HPT. I would advice wait for at least 1.5 weeks to take a test. But again sometimes, tests are also not that effective as much blood tests are. All the best ... Hope you get a good news soon.

Really sorry for your loss ninjasquirrel - can't imagine what that must be like. I think when it comes to age gaps, hopefully our firsts will be delighted with a sibling no matter how old they are. They just wouldn't know any better :-)

Welcome Pearl - I don't know what to suggest - sounds like you could be pregnant but it would definitely be worth seeing your GP again I think. Good luck.

Welcome Crackerjack - Sorry you got a BFN - I got one too yesterday and have started AF today so getting ready for cycle #4 You may not be out just yet though.

Welcome Overreaction - hope you will get your BFP soon - certainly bding every other day is a good start!

Linda - I've never had a coil so I wouldn't know but heard of a lot of people falling PG straight away after removal for some reason - hope you'll be lucky too.

Hayle - Just wondering, has your DD mentioned that she would like a sibling? Always interested in what you would say to that.. Mine is too little to be asking, but it may well take a very long time and perhaps he would start to wonder.

Hope everyone is ok today. xxx

Ninja squirrel so sorry for your loss sad

Clare - So sorry I missed you out! Can't keep track ;-) Welcome! Is this your first month TTC?

HayleBoppingAroundTheXmasTree Wed 12-Dec-12 14:06:21

life she would live a sibling!!

With my last pg because I was poorly with HG she knew from very early on. We took her to the 12 week scan as we suspected nothing. (I'd had an early scan at 7 weeks as I was admitted with HG) at the early scan you could see a strong hb.

Therefore we had to explain that the baby wasn't strong enough so it isn't in mummy's tummy anymore. We always say things like "when we have a baby..." And she will one day. She's already said she's not doing Nappies!!

Sorry about af arriving life, fx this will be your month and thank you for the little boost of hope about people getting pregnant after the coil grin

Yes, this will be first month TTC, day1 of AF Sunday so will probably ov about 22nd ish, could be a lot of surreptitious shenanigans at my parents over Christmas! blush

But how and when did I fall pregnant?? Surely I test wouldn't show this early I only ovulated 3 days ago according to the cbfm. Slightly confused but over the moon. If some one could help me I'd b grateful xxx

HayleBoppingAroundTheXmasTree Wed 12-Dec-12 18:00:25

kbaby from what I've read before, I could be wrong, you can get more than one rise in LH (ovulation hormone thing). So although cbfm says ovu on day 23 you could have ovulated before then. If you have been dtd since AF finished then you could have quite possibly ovulated and caught it before cbfm gave you a +

Congrats on your bfp :-)

HayleBoppingAroundTheXmasTree Wed 12-Dec-12 18:01:56

Your right though, if you ovulated 3 days ago you would be going through implantation ATM which shouldn't result in a bfp pg test.

We're ttc #2 since April, got DD who is 2.10. Trying to stay upbeat and positive, which is working to some extent but can't help wondering why it's taking so bleedin' long.
