2 years into ttc, and here I am starting yet ANOTHER 2ww. Moral support would be lovely - I gave up on boob support years ago when they started heading south...oh the joys if being in your 40s!

Hopefully dtd enough, though targetted sex is nowhere near as fun as the other sex where there isn't a goal to be aimed for (we're both feeling the strain). And now we wait. Given that I had rampant pregnancy symptoms last month and then my period started bang on time, it's quite like that I'll misplace my marbles sometime in the next teo weeks.

doctor my af bfp is due 5th feb too!! Fingers crossed we are lucky

Anyone got anything to report? Last month I had symptoms all over the place starting from about 5dpo (although no bfp), which is where I am now.

I don't feel anything at all so far this month. Except I was as irritable as hell this afternoon with dp, but that may have had something to do with the fact that I was filing the toe rag's tax return online for him because he should never be allowed to do anything technical on a computer...but he left it to the last minute as usual, so lots of pressure and stress for long-suffering girlfriend.

If he ever suggests he'll go self employed again, I think I may throttle him to save myself the long-term stress!

So, nothing to report here. Anyone else?

AF arrived this morning. sad On to cycle 15 now...

Hi, can I join you ladies? Glad I'm not the only one obsessing over every little twinge/headache/runny nose etc!
I'm 41 and TTC no.3. Had 9 cycles, nothing so far. It also took me 18 months to persuade DH!
Anyone feel mild AF cramps and twinges in the middle of the Tww and turn out to be preggers? My kids are 14 and 15 now so I can't remember! I'm having these mild AF cramps on and off, and the witch is due in another week GRRrrrrrrrrr ...

So Sorry YorkshireTea - must have crossed posts. Its an absolute bitch isn't it? Have a big glass of wine and on to next month. xxx

Can I join for some support? Ovulation tests were positive so I know we DTD at the right time, but that seems to be making the wait even harder as I know that there was definitely an egg lurking there!

SweepTheHalls Sat 26-Jan-13 22:08:42

Oh due on on the 5th as well!

DoctorWhoFan Sun 27-Jan-13 07:53:34

Welcome to the crazy club.

Bad luck Yorkshire...onwards and upwards, or so they say anyway.

I got a positive on an opk also Sweep, and we also dtd plenty around that time. But I did see something recently that says a plus on an opk is no guarantee that you do actually ovulate. Well whoop-dee-doo, just what I needed. Now I'm wondering if I'm ovulating. Plus when I get my lh surge, it only ever lasts 24 hours. If I test 24 hours after the smiley face, it says there's no longer any surge. Anyone else get this?

SweepTheHalls Sun 27-Jan-13 08:11:11

I stop testing to save money next cycle!

ImpatientOne Sun 27-Jan-13 09:38:06

Well starting spotting yesterday so not going to get my cheesy movie fairytale ending this month grin

Doctor I do not get on with OPKs at all, had 1 slightly positive in about 6 months before I gave up! I also used the CBFM but only got peaks 1 month and the rest of the time just 2 weeks of highs which doesn't really help. I think I drink too much for there to be any concentration of hormones!! blush

This is one of the reasons I am considering splashing the £££ on the DuoFertility monitor. I talked to DH about it yesterday and because I was bawling he is happy to consider it, although after we see the consultant on Thursday.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you all!

Doctor- get a 21 day progesterone blood test done at your GP surgery, the level of progesterone at cd21 is supposed to be the 'gold standard' test of ovulation. Have the test 3 consecutive months to get a clear picture. You could also ask for other blood tests ( FSH, prolactin, thyroid function) which will help get a clearer picture LPG what your hormones are doing. It's also worth getting your dp to do a semen analysis too- you may just be assuming that any issue is Ruth you, when it might not be! You could also ask for a hystosalpenogram (HSG), to flush out any minor obstructions in your tubes.
As your cycles are so regular, theres probably no benefit in using opk's, as you know the best days to bd anyway. It may just increase stress. X

quickdowntonson Sun 27-Jan-13 10:38:46

Sorry , silly phone, didn't mean to say LPG or Ruth!!!!

SweepTheHalls Tue 29-Jan-13 20:40:05

It's a no go for me hmm good luck to you all x

Why does the 5th feel so far away!! Am going to resist testing until after then if possible. Had no symptoms, nothing. Ahh well better luck next time for me! How are you ladies doing? Anything to report? Has your AF arrived sweep?

Mrsblackcar Tue 29-Jan-13 21:31:43

Hi there AF/BFP due on 2/2/13 did try one this morning but neg so will now wait patiently for the right day maybe shock

Happilymarried155 Wed 30-Jan-13 07:12:17

Hi,
Can I join? I'm another one with AF/bfp due on the 5th. Been ttc for two years now sad it's bloody hard!
Had all the tests and apart from a slightly low morphology the doctors say there is no reason why we shouldn't be able to concieve-which in a way makes it all the more annoying! We have an appointment to start iui in April but I've convinced myself that we will be pregnant by then! Heading for heartbreak I know but we can only hope!!!

Happilymarried155 Wed 30-Jan-13 07:13:21

I too am not going to cave in on the testing until at least the 7th smile

SweepTheHalls Wed 30-Jan-13 07:18:39

yes so its a no go this time. at least my best chance for next cycle is in half term so we might have a bit more energy!

RedRobin1 Wed 30-Jan-13 09:04:08

<decides to de-lurk and finally post>

gutted about your bfn impatient I remember you from our hycosy thread.

Can I join? On cycle 9 of ttc, had checks done and like you happily we haven't had anything worrying come up except DH's low morphology and a low level of antisperm antibodies. Af is due on 1st / 2nd Feb, but I start spotting before hand so will know by Friday hopefully.

TTC is just pants. I had a hycosy done this month. I had all the symptoms of implantation - painful period like cramps and tugging between 7-9dpo. I don't really symptoms spot as several 'imaginary' symptoms have taught me to not listen to my body. But this month I really thought we were going to get our BFP - cramps felt very different and stronger. Anyhow post 10dpo I have felt nothing, not even sore boobs which I get every month. So just waiting for AF to arrive.

Hello all, can I join you for some moral support?
I thought my cycles had sort of settled down - last few have been 27/28 days (and bot had one longer since bfote my yers of depo/implant/the pill), with obvious signs of ovulation exactly when you would expect them. This month, AF due yesterday and nothing, so now on cycle day 29 an counting...

ImpatientOne Wed 30-Jan-13 20:21:34

hi Robin and littlest

I definitely had more cramps this month Robin and started spotting 4 days before AF kicked in sad anyway seeing consultant tomorrow.

Fingers still crossed for those still in!

ncsmummy Thu 31-Jan-13 07:05:49

can I join please? AF due on 2/2/13 and resisting the urge to poas!!! The last few days I have been exhausted all day but cant sleep at night due to leg cramps, vivid dreams and the worlds most painful boobs! I cant even wear a bra at the mo as they are so painful! Also been sooo hungry which is most unlike me and tearful which is strange for the woman that rarely cries!!
I am 31 and ttc #3 although this is my first with my bf.
Fingers x or you all!!!

ncsmummy Thu 31-Jan-13 07:44:36

Well I had to do it to myself didnt i? Despite af not being due til sat night and the box saying to use the first pee of the day i just had to poas! Of courise it was a bfn! Now convinced that I must have some kind of strange illness to explain all my symptoms instead!! I dont remember bein this crazy with my eldest 2

DoctorWhoFan Thu 31-Jan-13 12:41:04

Hi ladies. Pretty sure I'm out this month. No symptoms at all. Nothing. Nada. Not even my usual sore boobs...wtf? Starting to think it's too late and that it will never happen for me. Need to sign on at anew doctors and then arrange for some tests, but my anxiety is so bad at the moment that I don't leave the house on my own at all, and DP can't keep taking time off work to do those sort of things with me.

I'm feeling pathetic and pretty depressed tbh.

ImpatientOne Thu 31-Jan-13 15:18:17

Sorry to hear that Doctor and ncs

I've been at the hospital today and seen the consultant who basically said we have 'unexplained infertility'. This is what I was expecting tbh and although it's good news that our tests didn't show anything it also means that there is no easy action plan!

I hope you can get some help with your anxiety Doctor sad it sounds like it is limiting your life a lot.
