Hi ladies

Just joined as feeling a bit low with yet another BFN. We've been TTC for about 18 months now, just waiting for a referral for specialist opinion as my progesterone never seems to peak!

Fingers crossed for everyone in 2013 xxxx

MoC hee hee. Have fun! It's, erm, interesting. I managed to get it everywhere (I didn't get the applicator version). Sexy...

sunnyday01 Thu 03-Jan-13 20:48:51

I keep seeing this concieve plus mentioned - we just use ordinary lube - is ths better?

MotherOfCleo Thu 03-Jan-13 20:58:41

sunny I dont know much about lube as we dont use it at the mo but ive heard that a lot of lubes actually kill sperm sad

andadietcoke Thu 03-Jan-13 21:08:36

sunnyday CP simulates EWCM so creates an environment which will help sperm swim better, and live longer. I think the official term is sperm motility. 'Normal' lubes don't have the same effect.

MotherOfCleo Fri 04-Jan-13 09:15:24

Is the applicator one the way forward then? I guess the other one could be a tad errrm messy.....

Blockette Fri 04-Jan-13 09:29:16

Morning! So I gave in and tested this morning - PFN! - I'm so peed off that i'm eating cake for breakfast! - now I just hope AF hurry's up so I can write this one off and start again sad

Mother - Yes get the applicator one! I got the normal one and messy is not the word for it!! lol

.... oh great, now one of the girls that works upstairs really lovely girl evil wench has just told me she's 10 weeks PG - Just what I wanted to hear today!!! she had a horrible year last year and I am happy for her HATE HER!

MotherOfCleo Fri 04-Jan-13 09:35:33

block my evil ex best friend was raving on FB yday about hearing her babies heart beat for the first time. I don't evil feel bad saying she is a nasty piece of work and I wanted to slap her! She has never put any effort into anything in her life, her fella earns over £50k a year and does everything for her, now she has number 2 on the way she has everything she's ever wanted! not bitter at all If she has a girl I will scream. think I have issues
We can keep each other company this month! My BFP is due Feb 1st, when is yours due? smile Hum just checked and I got the non applicator one, I'm going to get a syringe type thing and use that as an applicator.....I'm gonna look SO SEXY lol.

MrsBri Fri 04-Jan-13 09:42:36

You don't need the applicator, and the non-applicator one is better value for money. Plus, the applicators have rather too much in them for one use!

You don't need a syringe, we just (maybe TMI?!) applied with our fingers to each other's bits and went from there. DH made sure some was put inside me, but it worked just fine like that.

Sorry about the BFN Block :-(

Thunderthunderthundercats Fri 04-Jan-13 09:46:00

Bugger block, that's shite rubbish. I may join you with the cake today- shall we mope together?!

Am grin at MoC lubing herself up with a syringe prior to her romantic moment though. Perhaps you could get a Lacey syringe cover to fit the mood?

Am humph today. No idea what cycles are doing, OH not exactly on board with lots of DTD. Feel like giving up. Boo.

Blockette Fri 04-Jan-13 09:47:49

Thanks guys - And I can really recommend the cake-breakfast for BFN's and pending AF arrivals - I feel so much better now grin

MotherOfCleo Fri 04-Jan-13 10:14:14

Thunder you made me lol, yep I sound uber attractive huh! grin

MotherOfCleo Fri 04-Jan-13 11:01:50

Ok, this is a record AF flew in with a vengence yesterday and has now pretty much left again although I'm sure she'll rumble on for a few days more ....she's a funny old boot!

SeriousStuff Fri 04-Jan-13 12:52:56

Thanks Sunshine2013Hopefully - thought it was time to progress to this thread!

After my norovirus-fuelled false start, my husband officially gave me the all clear this morning (!). He's out at the moment, but when he gets home, he won't know what's hit him...(probably TMI but don't really care at this point, having already missed out on 4 days of TTC!).

Anyone who didn't come across me on the preparing to TTC thread, I'm 31 and we're (as of within an hour) TTC #1.

sunnyday01 I've heard a lot about CP over the last week. DH rolled his eyes when I mentioned it but have ordered some as back-up just in case!

sunnyday01 Fri 04-Jan-13 18:07:06

Posted this elsewhere but AF is still not right

Normally I have one day of dark red blood then comes on full force. On the second day I usually get cramping.

However this time for last three days had small amount of dark brown blood and that's it. It was bothering me so did a test ths morning but got a BFN.

Just don't know what's going on - got no other symptoms!

measureformeasure Fri 04-Jan-13 18:22:01

Hello All! I want to join the party too. I've been TTC for 3 months and AF is due on 7/1/13 but feeling that I'll be with you all next month as had BFN and no symptoms this months. Roll on next month!

Rumplestrumpet Fri 04-Jan-13 18:43:33

Hello ladies, can I join in?
As with some of you, I've been watching from the sidelines for a while, and now jumping into the fray. I'm 33, TTC number1 for 10 months now. Been trying to keep it relaxed and not temping/OPKing, but decided 2013 is the year to go for it (or at least feel like I'm doing more than just DTD!). So thermometer and OPKs at the ready (once AF leaves town next week)
Here's hoping 2013 brings us all BFPs fx

FlysInDreams Fri 04-Jan-13 19:05:53

Can I join too? smile I am 38 (39 at the end of the month! sad) and we have been ttc#1 for 11 months now. Last month I even had what I though could have been implantation bleeding (pinkish cm about a week before af due) but no, she turned up anyway, and three days early angry.

Anyway, here's to 2013 for us all! wine

Rumplestrumpet Sat 05-Jan-13 09:26:18

hello fellow newbies flys and measure, fx our bodies will do as they're told this month!

sunny I know the frustration of not knowing what's going on - last month AF played hide & seek for a couple of weeks. I'm no expert on symptom spotting, but just POAS whenever I have the slightest hope.... sometimes BFN seems to spark AF to turn up anyway!

MotherOfCleo Sat 05-Jan-13 09:45:49

sunny AF is a bitch huh, my second AF after coming off the pill consisted of one days spotting 10 days early my cycles are shit, 35, 24, 26, 29 ....i thought it was implantation bet i dont even get spotting when I get my bfp then missed the next months OV as was still waiting for AF....grrr so annoying. It took 2 days for me to get full AF this month, so confusing. Hope it sorts itself out soon!
<whispers> I do recommend OPKs new lovely ladies <waves> as you can see above my cycles are a bit haywire ive only actually managed 2 proper months TTC at the rihht times, the others were washouts and I get very confused and frustrated if I dont know what is going on! OPKs at least made me feel like Id done all i could. You are guaranteed a BFP now you are one of us grin

sunnyday01 Sat 05-Jan-13 18:09:23

AF arrived full force today! Thank god! At least now can start to think about this months ttc round now!

I've been off the pill for over a year so my cycle has pretty much settled down - think I'm around 30 days.

fl0b0t Sat 05-Jan-13 19:05:07

Welcome Cacks, I hope your stay here is brief! Anyway, this forum is a great and non-cliquey place to loiter and vent... I don't understand half the threads on NM, but this is a good 'un! smile

Thunderthunderthundercats Sun 06-Jan-13 11:46:00

mother, what opks do you use and are they easy? I bought some cheapy sticks off amazon and it's quite hard work with them- no FMU, test between 10am and 8pm, avoid drinking for 2 hours beforehand, let urine sit for 20 mins to reach room temperature..... Phhhhrrrrbbbbbb

MrsBri Sun 06-Jan-13 11:58:20

Thunder, I have a box of Clearblue digi OPKs you can have if you like? Send me your address if you want them. xx

Thunderthunderthundercats Sun 06-Jan-13 12:03:40

That would be amazing, thanks mrs! I'll pm you my address now. Are they easier to use? please say yes!
