Can I join? I'm on cycle 2 and currently on AF. According to my phone app my next AF is due 16th Feb (although no idea if this is accurate as had a 29 day cycle in November followed by a 42 day cycle just gone!)
Only stopped my pill (Yasmin) at beginning of October so early days.
Don't use anything as yet to check for ovulation.
When is everyone else's AF/BFP (hopefully the latter) due? smile

bluefreckles Mon 14-Jan-13 18:30:40

Oh and I currently don't have any children. I am 29 and my DP is 35.

roofio87 Mon 14-Jan-13 18:35:49

my next AF/BFP is due 29th Jan maybe,but as I've only just stopped pill (8weeks ago) can't be sure its that predictable!!

roofio87 Mon 14-Jan-13 18:38:01

....and me and my dp are both 25 and trying for first time!!

setayharas Mon 14-Jan-13 18:42:23

Oh blue sorry to hear that! At least now your not hanging Around waiting!

I'm 25 dp is 26 ttc 1st. Bfp due 29th

We went for it great guns this month and bd 2 days before and day before ov, now just waiting and hopeing

Roofio - I've got AF/BFP due on Friday 18th. I did a POAS today (as have a job interview next week, so it could affect it) and got a BFN. sad I just checked back through my phone to see when we properly started TTC and it was July last year, although I came off the pill at the end of August 2011, so I don't know how long to say we've been TTC. I guess that would make it nearly 18 months, but at the start I didn't know very much about fertile times of the month or anything, which is mad. I'm pretty well educated, but it just seemed to have passed me by. I don't have any sisters and my mum won't talk about stuff like that at all, so I guess I was always going to be a bit in the dark. confused So we're on cycle 7 of actively TTC and I've been sent for blood tests and am on the second set of those now as they found I didn't ovulate in the first ones. I'm 34 and DH is 33.

Bearface Mon 14-Jan-13 18:53:30

P.S. I think I am only 10 or 11 dpo, so I haven't lost all hope yet. smile

roofio87 Mon 14-Jan-13 19:03:15

bearface how have you found it trying for a while?! I'm very nervous about being able to get pregnant as I had chemotherapy 2 1/2 years ago so am just going to have to see if its had any impact on my chances. but I feel like its all I'm thinking about at the.moment!!

Sparkle002 Mon 14-Jan-13 19:15:40

Wow ladies..... You are all very welcome. Thanks for joking me on the wait.

Sparkle002 Mon 14-Jan-13 19:16:17

Oops meant joining me

Bearface Mon 14-Jan-13 19:21:16

Oh I'm really sorry to hear that Roofio thanks Are you recovered now?

Well, I guess it depends on your circumstances really and on how you perceive it. I'm 34 and I really wanted 3 kids but I feel like time is running out for me a little bit (sorry to anyone who is a bit older than me reading this, but I had planned gaps between DCs --not anymore--)

TBH I didn't find it too arduous at all until we started to up our game and really actively TTC. We knew it might take a while, but I don't think we were prepared for my blood results to come back and say I hadn't ovulated. I have regular periods so I just thought everything would be okay. Maybe it still will be? I don't know. I guess the hardest part for me has been everyone else around me getting pregnant and having their babies and I'm still at first base. No matter how many times people say 'Oh, it'll happen', 'Just Relax', etc. I still feel left out, upset and quite regularly jealous of other people. I have real up and down days. confused I think probably the hardest thing is dealing with the emotional aspect of it. We haven't told anyone that we are TTC as I couldn't cope with all the questions and discussions with other people. Sorry - #lifestory.

I would have thought that if you have had chemo then they might advise getting you checked out anyway if you wanted to. Have you talked to a doctor or a specialist about TTC at all?

setayharas Mon 14-Jan-13 19:21:46

Oh no problem sparkle how long of your wait have u got left?

Bearface Mon 14-Jan-13 19:21:59

Good typo Sparkle - we'll joke you anytime!
