Thanks! I'll send DP out to get some when he wakes up. If he asks why I'll say its for my EWCM and he'll nod along not really knowing or wanting to know either.
I hope you catch that egg red. It can't be easy when you work away so much. We find it difficult enough navigating through the "can't be arsed/too tired" excuses so it must be really tricky for you to plan.

When do you thing the egg will drop red?

I've got a very slight cold so of course am seeing that as a symptom. Boobs a bit sore but only when I squeeze them really hard which is bound to hurt! I'm really tired and feel a bit dizzy when I stand up but that could just be hormones. Bit crampy but that could be AF. So inconclusive over here! I don't think I'd believe it if I did get a BFP, sort of feel like it's a fantasy sometimes and if it actually happened I'd be ecstatic!

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 09:09:47

Sorry meant think not thing!

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 09:10:21

Ooh baby brain?! wink haha

RedRobin1 Sat 16-Mar-13 09:26:23

You sound like you are in the typical 2ww symptom spotting hell. Hope she doesn't come this month! Dizziness and tired feeling is a good sign smile

App says egg will drop Wed. Will dtd sun night - just hope the spermies hang on till wed!

Is there anything that makes grapefruit juice taste nice?? I cant stand it but dh likes it so there's loads in the fridge. But I'm willing to try everything this cycle smile

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 09:53:25

So they've got to hang around for 2 and a half to 3 days then red? Def do-able for the good ones and they're the ones you want! Keep your legs closed so none escapes! wink I'd def do the whole legs in the air bit after dtd to get them snugly up there to hang around.

wee you could try mixing it with another juice to mask the taste a bit? I like any juice. Not sure if I've said but I often put spirulina in my juice too (algae) as it's meant to be so good for you (am willing to try anything) Not for the faint hearted though. Bottoms up!

weechops Sat 16-Mar-13 10:03:56

Alex <boak> you are a braver woman than me! smile think ill go try mixing it with whatever else we have. Not algae though grin

twinklestar2 Sat 16-Mar-13 11:13:58

Wee you could mix with vodka and cranberry to make a cocktail?! grin

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 11:25:32

Great idea winkle wonder if that would work with my spirulina...algae cocktails anyone? grin

RedRobin1 Sat 16-Mar-13 15:00:59

Haha wee honest it's not too bad. I used to barf initially but now gotten used to the taste. Won't go as far as saying I love it but its not too bad after you get used to it.

Could you add sugar to it? Although not good for the diet. Cranberry mix sounds like the best bet. Or down it like a tequila shot wink

I'd take grapefruit over tequila any day!

RedRobin1 Sat 16-Mar-13 15:01:56

What the hell is algae in juice alex heeeehee the things we do for ttc! What does that do? I am curious.

RedRobin1 Sat 16-Mar-13 15:03:24

Another trick is to pinch your nose and drink it. Apparently not having the sense of smell reduces the taste buds. It's worked for me before.

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 15:21:29

Haha red it's meant to have all these vitamins and amino acids in (more than any food or something) and last year I was having a 90 day cycle and had a shot of it in a drink at a healthy juice bar for a couple of days running and got AF. So I now think it helps hormones. I know, crazy right? Oh no, am I one step away from fertility chanting and spells?!? Argh.

Thingymajigs Sat 16-Mar-13 15:55:52

Just had my grapefruit and its not that bad actually. Unfortunately I sent DP to get it so its all from concentrate but it'll have to do.
I second holding your nose and drink it through a straw to avoid most of your tongue.

weechops Sat 16-Mar-13 15:57:33

OK so holding my nose and downing a big glass is the way to go smile still have the rotten aftertaste but I can live with it.

Alex it sounds a bit strange, but it obviously worked for you! Yay algae smile

RedRobin1 Sat 16-Mar-13 17:15:15

Hahaha drinking out of a straw thingy

alex now that you explain the benefits it doesn't sound so nasty, at least it helps regulates hormones.

I tried a fresh grapefruit fruit last year. Was so bad I had to eat a spoon of sugar to get the taste out. Was very high on energy after wink

Funny story - DH tried to snog me today. He didn't know I had just downed a glass of the grapefruit juice. He pulled away in an instant and his face looked like he had been sucking on a lemon!

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 17:55:29

Hmm I think it might be more coincidence that I got AF straight after I started drinking it!

Haha that's funny about your DH red bet he wasn't expecting such a bitter kiss!

Another little tip - it's meant to be good for men to have things like oysters and Brazil nuts, stuff with zinc and selenium. I bought chocolate covered Brazil nuts for DH to smuggle them into his diet without making a bit thing out of it haha!

Adsum Sat 16-Mar-13 18:49:34

Quick quezzie- were you all this bonkers before ttc?!!!
Hmmm... actually I was but in a different way...

Lol @ reds dh grin and at Brazil nut smuggling - very cunning I might try that...

weechops Sat 16-Mar-13 19:35:33

grin ads mmmm quite possibly slightly less bonkers, but not much. I always like to give 100% effort to worthy causes ha! And sorry if I make no sense, dh got me some pink fizz and I started early. Don't usually drink so should be fun later smile

Adsum Sat 16-Mar-13 20:11:08

Good for you wee - you have inspired me! I'm going to crack open a bottle now...! smile

KerryJewels Sun 17-Mar-13 11:34:30

Hmmm...grapefruit juice sounds much more appealing than cough syrup...I actually bought the cough syrup with intention of drinking it for more ewcm but decided that didn't sound safe.I'm already taking chances with Metformin and Clomidsad well AF is gone so time to get busy again!!Ovulation shouldn't be here for me until closer to the end of the month-I hope the egg drops from the side that has a tube.So many obstacles..if this happens it will truly be a miracle from God 0:-) Good luck friends...create life!!!

Adsum Sun 17-Mar-13 11:57:21

Good luck kerry - sometimes luck (and God) is on our side wink

Adsum Sun 17-Mar-13 11:58:57

Had a lovely glass of Chablis and fell asleep on the sofa!! I was exhausted so it was nice to feel sleepy (had a few bad nights sleep recently) and the monster slept til late too - bliss! CD3 here... Still a few days until operation pregnancy number 4 gets under way...

RedRobin1 Sun 17-Mar-13 12:03:46

Fingers crossed kerry the egg will pop from your good tube.

Glad you had a good nights sleep ads I had a late night and early morning so feel very shattered
