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

Hi, Can I join?

We have been half heartedly TTC for the past 3 Months but as of August have gotten serious (calculating CM and DTD on predicted ovulation days).

DC1 was an accident, so I'm not really sure what to expect, I'm already driving myself mad and googling all manner of things.

I used to be on the dot with my cycles, pre DC, each lasting 28 days but recently they have been 34,26,36!? I'm generally going on a 31 day cycle and my CM is a strong indicator as there is lots of EWCM (TMI...)

Would you recommend charting temps, has anyone got a similar cycle?
I'm in the 2ww now, hoping for a BFP for someone soon smile

muzzy I'm 8 weeks tomorrow. Although I feel about 6 months with all the bloating! My jeans already don't fasten grin

Sorry for your bfn. Like you said though it is still early days and lots of people have a few -ve's before they get their bfp's!

GandTnow Tue 27-Aug-13 08:59:50

Hi Nobody, I'm also on 2ww - only 13 days to go! Already working out jsut how soon I could test (although there's part of me that would poas today if I didn't have to face DH when he realises blush!)

I'm not temping or anything yet, just trying to keep my crazy in check for a while.

Good luck.

Hi ladies.

I'm on cd14 today - which should be ovulation day according to average but I have a feeling I've missed it. Will dtd tonight anyway just in case, but (sorry for tmi) we dtd in cd10 and there was no 'seepage' (iykwim) but there was lots of seepage when we dtd on cd12. My logic is that when there is no seepage that's because the ewcm is doing its job. So I reckon we've missed ov. Although its only takes once I'm not hopeful. I'm definitely going to get OPKs next month because we can't start dtd too early as DH gets exhausted, but then this month I think we've left it too late. Arrrrrrgh!

2beornot Tue 27-Aug-13 09:02:27

Hi GandT. Guess well be POAS buddies then!! Oh yes, I might not be feeling optimistic, but I won't let that stand in the way of me POAS (in fact it'll prob mean ill do it earlier coz I hate it when AF turns up early and denies me the opportunity!!!)

GandTnow Tue 27-Aug-13 11:09:27

Ooo, I've never had a poas buddy before, most exciting! I hope you realise I'm going to use as my bench mark and not poas til you do..... have you done it yet? Just walked past Boots sooo slooowly trying to decide whether to buy a test or not; resisted this time smile

2beornot Tue 27-Aug-13 12:03:39

I'll prob wait til 7 dpo to test - anything before that really is crazy!! At least if you do it too I can convince DH that I'm not not bonkers - honest!!!

I've got a sainsbury one in the cupboard, but could do with a first response one ready!!

muzzy1 Tue 27-Aug-13 15:55:04

Hi ladies I'm driving myself insane and can't even tell dh what I'm up to as am testing way to early...so I know it's too early and I shouldn't be testing and i will just have to be patient and no-one can give me an answer but i did a clearblue test this morning and a line came up right away but it's very very thin and a bit faint but actually visible and not imaginary like some of my lines! It's the thin bit which I think means its a false positive. Anyway sorry I don't even know what I'm posting for....maybe for someone to say its positive! Sorry I realise how mad I sound!!

2beornot Tue 27-Aug-13 16:06:25

Muzzy - how many dpo are you? With my preg in April I tested and got a positive at 7-9dpo!!! A line's a line!! Can u post a picture?

NobodyPutsMyBabyInTheCorner Tue 27-Aug-13 16:44:45

Hi Gand and everyone.

Ill be testing around the 5th so next week.
I've looked on eBay and they sell pregnancy tests and ovulation kits for cheap. The person Claims to be an NHS provider, what do you think...

I can feel this being an expensive venture. I have one superdrug test in the cupboard.

pizzaqueen Tue 27-Aug-13 16:50:40

muzzy a line is a line! poas again in a couple of days. how many dpo are you?

nobody these are known as 'internet cheapies' loads of people on mn use them. I order mine on amazon but they're all basically the same I think.

I don't know if I've ov yet but just worked out bfp/af will due on the 11th right in the middle of our holiday and ds will want to go swimming all the time so even more reason to hope for bfp.

NobodyPutsMyBabyInTheCorner Tue 27-Aug-13 17:16:02

I've got my fingers crossed for you pizza. I'm going to buy some Internet cheapies if I don't get a bfp this month!

muzzy1 Tue 27-Aug-13 17:24:42

I'm about 8dpo. What test was yours on 2be? I'll try and post a pic if I can figure it out!

fedupofrainydays Tue 27-Aug-13 17:30:07

Beware of ICs I got a false positive this month. Broke me. And it wasn't an evap, it was a solid line. I tested again in same wee and bfn and then got af 3 days later. Just to warn you.

Muzzy - a line is a line but yes the thinness would make me question it. I would be testing again on a different test!! Good luck and fx for you

2beornot Tue 27-Aug-13 18:20:44

Muzzy I can't remember what type - picture is on my profile (I too doubted it so early!)

GandTnow Tue 27-Aug-13 18:44:16

2be you've got me excited now, can you test that early? I thought I'd be pushing it at 3 days before af due. Really excited now - eek!

Muzzy it sure looks like a line to me, I think I'd be tempted to test again in the morning and see what happens. fx for you.

2beornot Tue 27-Aug-13 18:52:55

GandT - no of course you can't! That's what makes us a little bit bonkers (frer say 7 days before AF due tho)

muzzy1 Tue 27-Aug-13 19:09:15

Fedup that must have been such a headfuck for you!
I've put a pic up, it looks even fainter in the pic...I promise there is one and I'm not hallucinating! Obviously it's the cross sort of tests so is the barely there line going down and not the big fat one across!

2be yours was so clear for so early on!
I have a SuperDrug one for the morning so fingers crossed!

AbiBub Tue 27-Aug-13 19:28:29

Muzzy I dont know how to get to your pic!!!! Please posta llink! ! Im excited now!! Just been lurking peeps just to see how everyones doing. Sorry to hear some peeps have got af, keeping my fx that everyone in the 2ww or dtd gets a bfp soon! :0) x

Hows everyone feeling?

fedupofrainydays Tue 27-Aug-13 19:40:28

Yeah, where's this pic muzzy?! I can't see a link!

It was a head fuck. Really got my hopes up. I won't be buying them again, would rather waste my hard earned cash on proper tests!

GandTnow Tue 27-Aug-13 19:50:32

2be - blush Oh, sorry, I'll try and calm down....... still with you on testing early though! Eeep!

muzzy1 Tue 27-Aug-13 19:50:41

I don't know where it is either! Can you not see it on my profile page...I thought I set it to public. I will check again!

fedupofrainydays Tue 27-Aug-13 19:57:30

I can't see your profile page at all....

Liquidambar Tue 27-Aug-13 20:45:13

oh now I'm super excited about muzzy. smile

gandtnow and 2be. can I join you I'm also cd 14. I think ovulation was around yesterday.

I'm on holidays at the moment and Dh says I'm completely bonkers but you can't imagine how many pregnant women I saw today at the beach shock . I must confess i was very envy... they all looked so good in their bikinis and rubbing their bumps.

I hope everyone is doing well.

muzzy1 Tue 27-Aug-13 21:21:15

Ok I give up...have set everything to public and still don't think it's showing?
