MrsLadyL Tue 23-Apr-13 18:52:12

Ovulation prediction kit. Yea this will be my first proper month I'd say, last two have been tracking and seeing what happens really. AF was late 10days in feb with neg hpt that was upsetting as iv never been late before. Hopefully this is my month, on cd 9 so this is my lucky weekend hehe X

MrsLadyL Tue 23-Apr-13 18:55:59

Sorry still wattage88. Change of name X

MrsLadyL Tue 23-Apr-13 18:59:54

CD10 actually! See I'm rubbish at this tracking stuff

CristaBell Tue 23-Apr-13 19:39:30

Oh ok, I might have to get one of those. I've been using the 'my days' and it's telling me I got 10 days until my next ovulation day which is the 03/05 smile good luck with everything I hope you get a BFP in May smile x

MrsLadyL Tue 23-Apr-13 19:43:39

HotCrossPun Tue 23-Apr-13 19:45:21

I'm 23 DP is 40 and we are ttc for the first time smile

Got my implant taken out about 4 weeks ago, still no sign of AF, so don't really know whats going on!

MrsLadyL Tue 23-Apr-13 19:54:21

Just downloaded you're app ;)

Hi again, I was supposed to get my implant out today but the person doing it phoned in sick so its been postponed biscuit. I think it will be 2 weeks today now before I get it taken out. I have been out and bought some folic acid today and started taking it though so getting ready!

So for stats, I'm 27, DP is 33, ttc DC2, we have a DD who is 2yo.

Last time we conceived DD within 2 months of having implant out, this time around though I'm not expecting it to be so fast.

BNmum Tue 23-Apr-13 20:38:49

I'm 33, DH also 33 and we're ttc #2. I have a very irregular cycle so I'm sure I will turn into a nutcase before long trying to predict ovulation dates etc. I think I'm on cd9 today.

MrsLadyL Tue 23-Apr-13 20:46:48

BNmum I have been the same in the past. Means we are around the same time I'm CD10 today! Lots and lots of baby dust for everyone smile

FernandoIsFaster Tue 23-Apr-13 22:01:35

I'm 31 dp is 34 and we have dd 2.11 ttc # 2 and this is 1st month. Took 8 months to conceive dd 1 so I think I will be hanging around here a while yet!

CristaBell Tue 23-Apr-13 22:23:51

MrsLadyL good luck with app, hope it helps smile x

Kellie04 Tue 23-Apr-13 22:26:56

I would like to join too please! Me and my OH are both 24 and started trying at the beginning of April. Been on the pill for 6 years so not sure when AF is due! We're really excited but I am so confused as to when I will be ovulating. AF would normally be due next week if I was still on the pill, will it still be the same time? So confused!

Coffee1Sugar Wed 24-Apr-13 07:28:56

Had my mirena out 27 march. Dd was a pill baby so no idea how long this time could take! Dtd last night and laid there for half hour cycling with my legs in the air much to dp's amusement grin

MrsLadyL Wed 24-Apr-13 09:29:07

Ha ha it's madness the things we do ain't it? I'm due to ovulate on Monday according to my app, so is my best days the Sunday/Monday or before that? Thought I'd done good last month so really unsure ? X

Beccadugs Wed 24-Apr-13 10:51:51

Is it bad that DH is of the opinion that we are just going to do away with contraception and see and not worry too much initially, and I am v familiar with my cycle, and know exactly when I OV etc. so will be making sure we DTD on those days??

MrsLadyL Wed 24-Apr-13 11:19:08

My husband is the same not really bothered of the opinion it will happen when it's meant too.... Me on the other hand not so much. Don't want it to over take everything but slowly is ha X

blueamber Wed 24-Apr-13 11:19:40

We're going to try too... first time. I had the MMR vaccine a couple of weeks ago, because I'd only had one before, so now I have to wait four weeks before ttc, very frustrating!

HungryHippo89 Wed 24-Apr-13 11:26:45

I'm sooo envy of people who are trying now ... I get my implant out on the 8th And the wait is agonising... Anybody had any experience with an implant being taken out... What happens, does it hurt? I've heard a few horror stories!!

wine Heres to lots of May BFP's and 2014 Babies ...

blueamber Wed 24-Apr-13 11:29:36

Kellie04, I thought the way it works is usually when you stop the pill you get your 'fake' period quite soon after. Then as you're no longer taking the pill you ovulate. It's different for everyone how long it takes, but it probably won't match up with your old AF.

1Catherine1 Wed 24-Apr-13 11:48:54

HungryHippo, I've had 3 different implants now and the removal is straightforward and as painful as the insertion.

They basically numb the area and then with a small scalpel make a small cut around the area of the implant and then with the tweezers type things, go in and pull it out. I would suggest not watching if you are squeamish because it isn't the most elegant procedure. The they bandage it up, the same way as they do when they put it in and suggest you take paracetamol in about 2 hours before the pain starts again.

Its a shame you have to wait so long to get an appointment, I phoned on Monday and got an appointment for Tuesday, it was then later cancelled by them, but thats beside the point hmm. I have to make another appointment now for next week or the week after, only drawback is that they only do it on Tuesdays..

This baby thing is driving me mad already, I'm convinced I'm pregnant but I know I'm not (if that makes sense). I've only just started trying too! I wish my body would speak to me and tell me if I've even ovulated yet or not.

Kellie04 I think it depends on what pill you are on, I stopped taking my POP 2 weeks ago and still no AF but I think that's cause you ovulate first with no withdrawal bleed (not necessarily true in all cases) whereas the combined pill has a withdrawal bleed and then you start your cycle. I wouldn't expect your AF at the same time as you were on the pill either, could be late or early compared to that till your body settles into it's natural cycle.
