That might be where we're going wrong as tend to stop two day after the calculator tells me I'm past but I might be completely missing it. Will give it a go this month and let you know how I get on. Thanks again

Can i join pls jus had a mc and really want to start ttc straight away as ive heard so many positive storys

ItalianWiking84 Tue 06-Aug-13 07:27:52

m33r I think you should think about buying those sticks, the cheap ones are just as good, just a bit more difficult to read (I think) ... I was really chocked when I found out that my fertile days is clearly after the ones given in the calculator, the last couple of months I been only relying on that one, so hoping this month will be the month, now where I actually managed to find my true fertile days...

Oh and heads up all of you lovely women, I went down to my local Tesco last night, to see if they had more of those Clearblue on clearance (I know, I am desperate and want to stock up, lol) and they told me that a lot of Tescos have this clearance at the moment with these Clearblues, because apparently a new model is going to come in to the market. So if you live near a Tesco and use them, then try looking at the clearance shelf there... Mine was 8.75, use to be 35!

mummyneedinganswers so sorry about your mc (sending you a virtual hug)

Kemie Tue 06-Aug-13 08:18:15

I'm tempted to start using opk's however I'll be at a festival over my fertile window and I'm not up to the challenge of poas in a portaloo!!

Empriscillavoss Tue 06-Aug-13 09:18:51

Hey I'm still clinging On to the August bus however quick question... Is there a certain time of day your are sposed to use the ovulation sticks?

ItalianWiking84 Tue 06-Aug-13 09:43:11

Empriscillavoss
They say you should use the same time a day, not in the morning, and not drink really heavily (like 2 liters of water and coffees) 2 hours before testing

jaykay987 Tue 06-Aug-13 11:45:17

I think it depends on the brand. As CB instruction say you should use FMU.

WillowsTree Tue 06-Aug-13 11:48:59

I'm still none the wiser on expected bfp date as af STILL hasn't appeared! Had all the signs she was imminent on Saturday (bad cramps) and today still nothing! I'll keep my seat up the back and just wait I suppose.

ItalianWiking84 Tue 06-Aug-13 12:26:42

FMU, What does that mean?

ItalianWiking84 Tue 06-Aug-13 12:27:28

WillowsTree - Perhaps she is not coming? You did a test?

jaykay987 Tue 06-Aug-13 12:37:57

Fmu - first morning urine

WillowsTree Tue 06-Aug-13 12:40:40

I think the cramps were too severe for them to be a pg symptom. I've ordered ic tests that arrive Monday so if she's still not here I'll test. Sure I can't be lucky enough to get pg straight off the mark!

ItalianWiking84 Tue 06-Aug-13 12:53:37

WillowsTree I have 3 friends who did that.... So I am keeping my fingers crossed for you...

Thanks for the clearing, Jaykay smile

JosiePosiePuddingAndPie Tue 06-Aug-13 18:53:27

Hello I'm skipping the August bus as my cycles are so long (38-39 days) I won't get to test before the beginning of sept now so:

JosiePosiePuddingAndPie TTC #2 cycle 2 BFP due 1/9/13

m33r Tue 06-Aug-13 20:11:54

Hi willowstree. It happens more than you'd think. Fingers crossed!

Italianviking, I'm heading to Tesco asap. Thanks for the tip; I hate the non-digi ones as I'm never confident of my reading.

DisneyDiva87 Wed 07-Aug-13 11:41:00

I tend to do a couple of ov tests a day cause your hormone levels could rise after you do one and then fall again before you do the next one a day later. I bought cheapies from Amazon and they seem to work fine for me.

Crampy now so downing the ibuprofen and snacking on Brie (while I still can) considering spotting's still an issue the B6 is going up 100-fx it works!

WillowsTree Wed 07-Aug-13 19:44:37

Well my internet cheapies arrived today and I couldn't resist, but not surprisingly a bfn. Still cramping thoughhmm Never had this last time my mirena was removed so don't have a clue what's going on with my body!

ItalianWiking84 Thu 08-Aug-13 08:16:43

I am still just waiting for the 18th to see if AF arrives or if I might be so lucky and not getting it smile

Nottalotta Thu 08-Aug-13 10:11:46

Looks like AF might have left for this month. Dh is away from friday til monday so a weekend of solitary peace before the shagging commences!!

ItalianWiking84 Thu 08-Aug-13 12:31:21

Just for fun: What do you call your DTD at home? Do you have any nick names or funny terms for it?
