Ladies, bring me back down to Earth before it's too late! I'm TTC #2 and its only the 2nd cycle and I'm already doing my own head in not to mention my OH.....we're not the kind of couple to have regular sex when not TTC (much to my disappointment ) so it's a real effort for DS to, erm, pull his finger out as it were and DTD every other day. With DS1 I had no idea about CM and OPKs and just used an ovulation calendar for timing but this time round I'm in danger of falling into the OPK trap! I'm aware of my constant whittling and DH even said that he hopes I get pregnant this month so he doesn't have to listen to me begging for him to do it just one more time! Anyone in the same boat?
Ha, ha! Love all your posts! I have been TOO good this week.....I haven't done any symptom spotting or reading on the net. I've made a conscious effort to forget (that's surely an oxymoron) and am only indulging my baby obsession with you fellow loons . I'm also still BFing mrshuxtable. How long is your luteal phase? Mine is 11-12 days but I think that's ok right?
Fingers crossed your suspicions are right nomore!
OMG....just remembered while TTC DS1 I completely flipped out at my OH for not DTD enough (in response to finding out yet another of my friends was pg accidentally) and I smashed my cereal bowl on the floor, took a chunk out the laminate and burst into a flood of tears.WTF!! DH was very understanding though.....can't believe I did that. Having a kid has def made me more patient I think!
Haha! I've been on the vitamins since...last SEPT!! I had a few job issues which meant we kept putting off ttc every month but now I've started a new part-time job which is ace we are going for it now, well after AF goes. There is no doubt I am full of folic acid though!
I will be ov around 9th March if my app predictions are right so I'll be 2ww-ing after that. Flip. Nerve wracking!
I am actually very excited that there may be a few BFPs coming soon on here....
Gem Yep, 10 days and over is fine. I have 5 days at the moment. So pregnancy is not possible until that changes. I'm gutted as I'm on a strict ttc schedule so might have to night wean poor DD earlier than I wanted.
Ok so I've got two first response tests! AF is due on Tues, today is 10 dpo (I think, I don't know when I ovulated but I so have a regular 28 day cycle). When should I test? I've heard that first thing in the morning is best so tomorrow, Sunday or Monday?
That's confusing 2be! Things are never that simple are they?? I'm not sure when to expect AF as I never know when to count from - I often get spotting for a day or two before, and my cycles last different lengths as well.
Just been to get more tests at lunch to fulfil my increasingly secretive habit of POAS... I figure DH doesn't need to know about my crazy addiction!
Any news for us nomore? Any sign of AF? I'm also starting to get twitchy.....I'm about 6-7 dpo and for 2 days now my nipples have been really sore. When I BF I have to brace myself when DS first latches on and in the morning they're especially sensitive because I sleep on my front! I had all the usual abdominal cramps which I get post ovulation- they've been and gone but still my nipples are sore which is not a normal symptom for me at all and I'm sure I'm not imagining that my boobs feel fuller. I also have a lot of ..... TMI ..... creamy CM. I'm not the kind to invent symptoms and keep trying to put them down to something else so I won't be disappointed should AF arrive nxt Sat. I don't think I'll test until next Sat either as I'm scared of getting a BFP then AF arriving anyway (i.e chemical pregnancy) or getting a BFN for testing too early.....trying not to read too much into things is hard!! Sorry for raving like a loonatic rambling, just had to get it off my (sore and ample) chest .
I threw-up this morning, definitely not a hangover so must be a positive symptom right?! Going to have to POAS Tuesday, have told DH he will have to take part on FaceTime - no way I can wait til next w-e....
Ladies, sorry to put this on here but I have to say it somewhere and I can't tell DH!
Last night I had a dream that I was pregnant and delivered a baby boy spontaneously at home (early, but healthy). It was the day before my dd birthday. I woke up and felt really down that not only was it not true, I wasn't even pregnant!
Oh we'll! DH have had a chat about our approach this month. Basically I do not want another January baby. DH & DD both have January birthdays and its an expensive month! So after this cycle we're going to have a month off (I think I've calculated correctly!). So this month we've decided to go for broke. If it doesn't work it won't be through lack of trying!
2be we're thinking we'll try to avoid a Christmas baby too if we can. If I'm not going crazy and we are PG this month it'll be due 2 November, so one more month of trying and then a month off for us too. I want to try to avoid people getting joint presents/forgetting it altogether if we can.
Obviously there are worse things that could happen but that's the plan!
I've got my fingers crossed for you nomore....I'm also not convinced I'm pg this cycle. My sore nipples abated after 2 days and i dont have any other signs apart from CM. Got to hold out to Sat to test though....one of us just has to get a BFP better of course would be ALL of us!
Well,fellow nut jobs! How are we all tonight? I've got my fingers crossed for you nomorepeg and gem. One of you MUST get a bfp after all this excitement! Interesting point about the Christmas baby issue. I hadn't really thought of that. We have DMIL and DBIL's birthdays in Dec so it's always a ridiculously expensive month for us but I think we will just try and and see what happens, it wouldn't be the end of the world (far from it!) to have a wee snowy santa baby. DS was born in June so it would be far away enough from his anyway! AF has just disappeared and we're raring to go. Planning to dtd from this Wednesday (just in case) every other night (and a few extra times during ov - opks at the ready) for the next couple of weeks. Since it's our first cycle we are full of enthusiam. I am sure this will dwindle with each cycle!
