Thanks spanish! I am filled with false hope again!

Hello everyone!

On ovulation between a MC and first AF, I've had people tell me that OPKs don't really work. Who knows though?!

Spanish - my MW tried to refer me for an early scan and the bastards refused. However, I got one in the end and I'm really glad that I did (even though it was bad news) because otherwise I'd have had a further four weeks of waiting and wondering and uncertainty. Can you try to explain to your DH that its not being negative, but will help you relax and therefore lead to a less stressful pg?

Because I'm totally anal in a slightly control freak way organised, below is the list in alphabetical order (I still get confused about who is where on this rotten journey)

Alyant79 1 DD 1MC - TTC cycle 0 (next week)

spanish if we get past this one I've still gotta get to scan date and pass first MMC date so there's no let up hmm

Thanks for doing the stats!

alyant79 Wed 13-Mar-13 12:04:19

Also totally agree with that rationale for an early scan

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Wed 13-Mar-13 12:09:38

Morning everyone.
Well, if I can be grateful in anyway for MC an ectopic, its that the EPAU have already told me that they want me nice and early next time. Its a double edged sword though I think. Sometimes ignorance is bliss in a way.

Saggy my EPU have told me the same things - they will scan me at what they think will be 8 weeks and then at 12 - she said if I find out early they will scan be straight away. Need a BFP first though!!

It's rubbish that the units vary so much across the country.

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Wed 13-Mar-13 12:35:59

BFPs will come. Where's your posifrickintivity?! grin

SpanishLady Wed 13-Mar-13 12:54:04

absolutely - listen to Saggy girls!

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Wed 13-Mar-13 13:12:17

<<doesn't hear that very often!>> grin

I've listen to saggy - posifrickentivity is back - bring on all the BFPs!! smile

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Wed 13-Mar-13 14:08:46

Its the waiting which is haaarrrdddd! According to the app, I should ovulate friday, so DTD all this week, then the looooonnngggg 2WW! Im stuck in the house and time is passing soooooooo slowly! The good thing is that until AF hits Im full of hope and enthusiasm! Im going to sort out my knitting chest and start a nice big blanket, to give me something to do!

I'm feeling the postivity!!
Bring on those BFPs!!

Anyone ever had a look at the sperm meets egg plan.
I had a read- so it is DTD everyother day from day 8 and then when you get a positive OPK DTD every day for 3 days, miss a day and then once more.
It was designed for people post MC and increases the chance of a BFP each month from 20% to 40%.
I'm giving it a go- starting tonight!!!

Does anyone use the clearblue digita OPKs?
Just checking what time of day to use them-I know other tests say use midmorning/afternoon as the LH isn't high in the mornning but the clearblue says you can use them any time.
THoughts anyone??

TheWoot Wed 13-Mar-13 14:25:45

Hi everyone, I've jumped over to this new thread. May I ask a question? How long after your MC did you all ovulate?

I had a MC on 18/12/12 and don't think I ovulated after, then
AF 20/01/13
Ovulated 05/02/13
BFP 18/02/13
MC 04/03/13

wondering when to start testing and really not wanting to miss it!!

Thank you x

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Wed 13-Mar-13 14:31:50

No idea. We just started DTD as soon as possible, every other day.

GardenWorm Wed 13-Mar-13 14:34:35

Ooh Fertile Friday is fast approaching - I did some decorating yesterday so that's nesting right?! Ha ha! Heading for a splat!

Re OPK's I've used Clear Blue on first wee and Internet cheapies later in the day around 5pm - both registered something ;o)

See ya Friday peeps - be there, be preggers!

POSIFRICKINTIVITY and then some grin

Bakingtins Wed 13-Mar-13 14:44:54

Hi everyone. I'll have a bit of your posifrickingtivity, if I may?

Had a really good chat with DH yesterday and we've decided to take up the offer of a private recurrent miscarriage investigation appointment tomorrow. We're both unsure at the moment if we will TTC again but I'm clear that I need to have investigated the possibilities before we give up hope. I think you have to be at least 6 weeks post MC for some of the tests but we can at least get the ball rolling. I don't have the time or the inclination to do another 6-12m TTC, MC again and then the NHS will help us when I'll be nearly 40. They're bound to say then it's my age and they can't help.

Hope to see lots more BFPs on this thread. Good luck to you all...

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Wed 13-Mar-13 14:51:00

Good to see you BakingTins.

alyant79 Wed 13-Mar-13 15:23:36

bakingtins glad you found us here again.
The appointment tomorrow sounds like a positive thing to do. At the very least it would be nice to have some answers. I really really hope that you find them helpful.

So jmf the sperm meets egg plan is, in summary, have sex and lots of it.
sounds reasonable grin
might just try it wink

Zeuxippe Wed 13-Mar-13 15:39:26

Hi I'm doing smep too! It promises 40% conception rate post mc

Good luck with the tests baking

MrsSpencerReid Wed 13-Mar-13 16:15:58

Found you smile be back later

icklemssunshine1 Wed 13-Mar-13 16:16:59

2 weeks today since ERPC, just did ovulation test & got 2 equal lines. Now just got to decide whether to DTD or wait til I have AF. Thought I wanted to conceive straight away but now it's happening I'm worried about getting pregnant (well not that, but miscarrying again). Sound nuts don't I?!!!

icklemssunshine1 Wed 13-Mar-13 16:18:44

& can I add to list?

1 DD 1 MMC TTC Cycle 0

IBelieveInPink Wed 13-Mar-13 16:21:11

Icklems, I was exactly the same. I tried waiting longer after 1 mc, and didn't wait at all after 2nd mc. I was still terrified when I found out last week I am pg. I don't think that will ever change, now you have been through it, sadly the fear will always be there.

What I mean is, don't let the fear hold you back. If there are other practical reasons why you feel you shouldnt, or you are too sad at the moment, then wait. But if it is just being scared, that may be around for a while unfortunately, so go for it.

Hope that helps. Reading it back I'm not sure if it does, but my brain is a bit like cake at the moment so can't think how to say it better! smile

WillSantaComeAgain Wed 13-Mar-13 16:22:31

Hello woot - i'm not sure whether the OPKs will work this cycle - as with saggy, we just started DTD and have managed every other day since, in the hope that's enough. Will do the full on CBFM after AF arrives for DC3 (sorry, forgot the posifrickitivity there, obviously AF is NOT going to get me as I shall be pg on this cycle --in fact I probably already am pg--)

Hello baking - I agree, I think the appt will help you. After all, whatever they find, then it will allow you to make a fully informed decision whether to try again knowing where you stand. I hope its not too much of a drawn out process though.

Do you think you can ov over multiple days (multiple eggs?) - usually I can tell I'm ov by my horniness quotient, which often manifests itself in having inappropriate thoughts about male colleagues/friends blush (note: I am a happily married woman and would never dream of cheating). I found myself gazing at a male colleagues eyelashes today. They're soooooo beautiful. I wanted to reach out and touch them. This is not normal behaviour.
