Still here, still ttc, still POAS, still symptom spotting, still counting days, still temping, still shagging and still absolutely nutty!!!

I have been imagining lines!!
Did bart start the last one? Oooo maybe it is a sign. Hope so but doubt it knowing my luck.

I should be on maternity leave now sad

good morning ladies

jules sorry to hear about Af. I hope you are okay.

keepthecar glad the meeting went well and envy of your shopping trip.

fedup it's hard when the symptoms are so close! any news about your next doctor's appointment?

one I think you should try to imagine a nice beach, blue skies and a nice cocktail every time your inlaws chat about your SIL's baby. just nodge your head wink

another negative opk this morning I'm trying to think it's okay as I'm only on cycle day 9.

Need to do some work!! hope everyone will have a good day

x post fedup. hugs!

Hi all,

I think this is the place I need to be! Me and my H have been TTC number 2 since January. As of today my period is 2 days late. It always starts on the 20th, no fail... but still no sign of it, or any of the signs I normally get. I've tried peeing on some sticks, yesterday and this morning, but they have come up negative. I've tried a ASDA one, a clearblue digital and a first response (normal, not early) one. I'm so confused. I'm tiered, feel nauseous etc but if the tests says not pregnant 2 days late, does this mean I am not pregnant - sorry for the dumb questions, our DD was a suprise!

Thanks

Morning ladies!

Rice cakes ahoy here this morning, I cant work out if they're working, but im still hungry!!! Might try some drytoast as well just to fill me up! I llong for cereal with milk!!!!! Thank you for all your kind words re sickness!

Sorry to hear you got af jules, fresh cycle, onwards and upwards I used to say to myself, at least you get to do the fun dtd bit all over again wink

Fedup, and all the ladies on this post for that matter, I am soooooooooo keeping my fx that you all get bfp this cycle. You are all so bloomin lovely and bloody well deserve it for sure.

Mainly lurking here ladies, but the odd post wont hurt will it grin ¿

AbiBub Thu 22-Aug-13 10:16:46

Sparkly, have you tried superdrug one? They are really low detection levels (10miu) . You can still get a bfp, everyones different and every stick bean different too. This time round I got bfp a day after my missed af (using superdrug ones) but with ds (years back) I didnt get a bfp until I was 6weeks 6days! So anything possible. Hcg levels can vary soooo much!

Keeping fx for all. x

Hi AbiBub

Thank you, I'll have to go and grab some of those ones! Asdas are 15miu I think. Good to know that it could still get a BFP! Last time I tested 4 days or a week late I think and got a clear BFP first time. It's so difficult atm, want it to be positive so badly, so every trip to the toilet is stressfull (so if TMI!). Definetly feel pregnant, but I may just be sypmtom spotting to much!

ricecakesrule Thu 22-Aug-13 12:54:29

Hi All, sorry to hear about the bfn's, surely we need at least one bfp over the back holiday?

Got a flashing smile on opk this morning, so high fertility (3 or 4 days pre ovulation) and will now be DTD religiously. DH makes me laugh and gets a bit offended that I only want him for TTC, so will have to keep quiet about the opk results!

Hoping to hear some good news from somebody over the next few days, come on ladies!

Oh and I decided to keep docs appointment, told my mum what it was for (need to use her car and she is having ds) and she was really supportive. It took her 7 years to get pg first time round shock can't help but feel she was doing it wrong grin grin so she has a pretty good idea what we're all going through!

juleslynn77 Thu 22-Aug-13 14:14:52

Thanks ladies. AF was actually due so at least I know I'm regular right? I just has so many other symptoms that I was convinced I was pg. Ah well suppose it means I can get back on the DTD wagon wink
Hope there's a BFP from someone soon. I'm gonna go to the docs to get fertility tested. Anyone had that done? What do they do? confused

fedupofrainydays Thu 22-Aug-13 15:41:43

Help ladies.

So I POAS this morn on Internet cheapie and bfn. Double checked with FR, bfn.

Just POAS again with ic again and there is a line. Crappety, crap crap. So I have POAS again (well actually it's in a pot) with same wee for superdrug test and bfn. Staring at it hoping a line will develop. Officially mad.

ChampagneTastes Thu 22-Aug-13 15:54:14

Hi All - may I join? I did join briefly under a different username a couple of months back but the lack of success started to get me down and I didn't want to be reading about other people's happy news and being all jealous and sulky!

I'm TTC number 2. My DS is 14months and we've been trying since January. I'm now starting to worry to be honest although I know seven months isn't that long compared to some. Not feeling it for this month either. I'm due on at the end of the month and have tried to stay off the wine this month. It's my birthday on Saturday though I'm making no promises!

fedupofrainydays I am also guilty of ridiculous over-peeing. It has finally occurred to me that if I am pregnant I will find out simply by waiting. However this requires patience and that is not a quality I am particularly know for. I have no doubt that on the 29th August I will be peeing on multiple sticks and holding them up to the light.

Best of luck all those who are POAS at the moment.

ricecakesrule Thu 22-Aug-13 16:30:00

fedup - how much water are you drinking too support all this poas?! I think you need to go and buy a clear blue digital, then lock it away until first wee tomorrow. Then report back immediately! I know they're expensive but no holding up to the light nonsense!! Good luck anyway fx for you.

juleslynn/lynnjules ?! sorry can't check on my tablet! I'm going for initial appointment tomorrow so will report back, suspect this will just be a referral but will let you know!

ricecakesrule Thu 22-Aug-13 16:30:45

Welcome champagne! smile

fedupofrainydays Thu 22-Aug-13 18:39:08

A lot of POAC rather than POAS!!

Ok... Only thing is am only 10/11 dpo and not sure cb digi will pick it up as not as sensitive as Internet cheapos. Dreading seeing the 'not pregnant' and it's all been a big joke to get back at me for being a POAS addict.

fedupofrainydays Thu 22-Aug-13 18:39:54

Welcome back champagne

getagoldtoof Thu 22-Aug-13 20:03:26

I found you all! So I haven't read all of the thread - but...

Keepthecar - isn't temp dip 10 dpo supposed to signal implantation? Goolgle it, I'm sure it does. Could be a good sign.

Will catch up in a bit X

juleslynn77 Thu 22-Aug-13 20:31:56

Thanks ricecakes. Keep me posted and good luck. smile

Juleslynn77 Thu 22-Aug-13 20:45:02

Fyi - Am changing my name to Whynotnow? Seems appropriate smile

Whynotnow Thu 22-Aug-13 20:46:19

Done. Still here grin

Irishdiscobiscuit Thu 22-Aug-13 21:04:42

Hi ladies can I join? Been lurking for a couple of weeks (since coming off pill) been try to be super icy cool about ttc number 2 but epic fail obsessed already! Had. Few wines this evening hence the balls to actually add a msg petrified DH will see h already thinks I am nuts!!!

2beornot Fri 23-Aug-13 07:53:05

Welcome irish!!

My DH knows I come on here to be nutty - it means I can be normal ( most of the time) around him.

Fedup I know ur a POAS addict like me, but I'm thinking you should have a day off. Try again 12dpo when you should get ur BFP x

Hi all,

me again! Couldn't resist this morning, but still a BFN, and no sign of my period starting....arg!

Liquidambar Fri 23-Aug-13 09:56:51

welcome sparkly irish and champagne lets hope you get your bfp soon.

fedup any news?

I got another negative opk (cycle day 10) this morning (I am using thr digital monitor). I'm starting to panic a little bit... but then I try to calm down by saying lying to myself that it's still okay.

Whynotnow Fri 23-Aug-13 10:02:34

Sparkly. How late are you?

I'm 3 days late Whynot :/
