Hello ladies

I would like to start a thread/bus/merry-go-round to meet, get support and share with ladies in the same boat as me:

TTC baby no 1!

Will you join me and see it through to the BFP?!

A bit about me - I'm 29, DP is 35. This will be our first child.

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:19:15

Hi ladies mind if I join? I'm 27 and dn is 44, having my coil out tomorro so we can start ttc baby 1 :-) xx

kitkat - I've only had one 2ww so far as on cycle 2 now. Last month I was convinced I was pg as I was exactly 2 weeks late sad
Turns out my body was tricking me and throwing in a random 42 day cycle angry
I tested 4 times over the 2 weeks I was late and all came back with negatives. With each one I got less and less excited and had decided by the 4th that I def wasn't pg anyway, just odd!

bluefreckles Tue 29-Jan-13 18:19:50

vicky - I would like to know this too!

bluefreckles Tue 29-Jan-13 18:21:21

pixie - welcome!

wakey - totally agree. Really thought it was just a case of stopping the pill and waiting.

vicki2122 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:25:51

Yea if anyone has an info on that let me no im going off some foods getting full quickly feeling a bit sick and getting cramping

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:27:19

Vicky and blue.. My friend knew she was pg after 2 days... Pg no 5 tho after 4 prev mc... So kind of knew what to look for.. What sort of symptoms? X

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:37:49

Just out of curiosity is anyone else giving up smoking to ttc?

bluefreckles Tue 29-Jan-13 18:39:09

No I'm afraid I've never smoked so can't help with that one.

We are trying to get fitter though

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:43:56

Yeah me too blue... My biggest problems are smoking and full fat coke confused smoked my last real cig at midday and do wants me to try and cut down on the coke ( in all fairness I do drink 6 cans a day)! Want to try and lose a little weight but dh doesn't agree.. I'm 5'5 and 10st x

pixie I just made a shock face at your coke habit...until I realise it was like coca cola grin

I'm trying to quit smoking. Last time I quit as soon as I found out i was pg (mega surprise after condom and map) but started again after I MC'd.
DP isn't pressuring me to give up right now but I am cutting down loads.

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:56:55

Lol wakey... I prob should have made the coke comment more clear shock. Dh is pushing me to stop so I best had or he will withhold dtd lol. I've bought an electronic one and so far it's helping x

setayharas Tue 29-Jan-13 19:13:23

Hey everyone can I join, cycle4
Anyhow a day late now and getting bfn sad
I have given up smoking this is week 4 now but with every bfn I fancy one a bit more! as finding it hard not too give in when I think I'm not preg( that's the only reason I said I would ever quit lol) I enjoy em far too much to quit for my own health

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 19:23:50

Setay sorry on the bfn confused if it wasn't for wanting to get of there's no way would I be giving up so I can sympathise totally xx

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 19:24:19

Sodding autocorrect!! Pg* not of

WakeyCakey Tue 29-Jan-13 20:15:16

I don't think I have ovulated at all this month so far so just waiting for AF to arrive next to start again.
Was delightful at work when my phone went off with a pop up saying 'your period will start soon' always a good thing for your colleagues to see!!
Bloody iPhone app!

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 20:23:35

I'm not sure I have... Not that it makes a difference coil doesn't come out til tomorro and af due in just under 2 weeks. iPhones are evil!!!

vicki2122 Tue 29-Jan-13 20:37:33

Is anyone testing in 2 weeks?

Fizzylemonade Tue 29-Jan-13 20:49:19

Hello, I have no reason to join this thread as I already have my 2 children but I wanted to say good luck to everyone and can I just point out that the clear blue ovulation kit is very expensive.

I got an ovulation predictor kit online 8 years ago (I have endometriosis so my cycle was anything from 26 to 42 days) I just peed in a pot and dipped the predictor strip in. It told me whether I would ovulate within the next 24 hours.

I can't remember how much it was but a quick google has shown me that the ones out there are much cheaper than the clear blue ones.

Liquoriceallsort Tue 29-Jan-13 20:57:39

I am Vicki grin

WakeyCakey Tue 29-Jan-13 21:05:07

I haven't used the clear blue ones yet, got them off amazon, afraid of wasting them if I don't ovulate.
Until my afs get more regular I don't think I'll bother as font want to waste the money.
Didn't ever really think about them until I joined MN.

Pixie where did you get your electronic cig?

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 21:11:43

I'm debating whether or not to get a opk.. Will see what happens in the next couple of months.... Wakey I had it in sainsburys.. It's £4.99 and I the equivalent of 30 real cigs but you can get the re chargeable ones too so that's my next purchase tomorro x

WakeyCakey Tue 29-Jan-13 22:07:24

Just had a quick look online so I'll have a browse of the shops tomorrow. Might give me what I need to quit! smile

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 22:36:37

I'm loving mine.. So I'm hoping its gonna help... Keep me posted xx
