Well I thought I'd get the ball rolling and start up the October bus, there's plenty of cake and wine on board and extra comfy seats for relaxing into those BFP's

Wow, more BFPs!! Congrats to all so far!

Choccy could you add me to the list please when you next update? ttc #1, cycle 1, BFP due 24/10

However, this month, symptoms have started arriving, so O might be a few days earlier than I'm expecting it to!

Fingers crossed for you LH

Hi everyone. I've not got much to report but I said I'd try and drop in on on Friday. A.F still here, C.D7. I wish she'd p*ss off. I'm seeing D.P tonight but there'll be no love making due to the witch still hanging around.
Also can I be added on to the ttc list.
Congratulations to the B.F.P's.

Hi ladies, looking for some advice.

This is cycle 2 and thought if I'd try the opk's this month. I have a 28 day cycle, regular as clockwork so presumed id ov on day 14 (currently day 10). I tested this afternoon and have a positive opk, does this mean I'm ovulating today or it's going to happen tomorrow etc??

I got a negative yesterday and a very definite positive today. If I DTD for the next 3 days do you think I'll have done enough or do you recommend to keep testing and DTD until I get negative opk's?

This is all so confusing! Who would have thought something so natural would be so complicated!

Thanks in advance :-)

Hi Babymama: I use you use 'normal' (ie not digital) OPKs from what you've said? I don't know much about them, but I think you ovulate 12-36 hours after the positive appears - different women are different. Some even ovulate on the day of the positive - depends how long your LH surge is. I should think dtd on the next three days will be fine though!

Thanks RaRaZ, just using the cheap ones off amazon at the moment, didn't really want to spend too much when it's only cycle 2 of trying!

Congrats on the BFP!

Babymama I use those ones too and dtd every day from positive....so get to work ;)

mama31 Fri 04-Oct-13 16:07:21

Ps not every day forever.... Lol every day for 3 days, skip one day then try once more....that's what ill be doing.

Babymamatobe Fri 04-Oct-13 16:07:22

Hahaha mama31 !!!! DH on his way home from work :-)

mama31 Fri 04-Oct-13 16:08:57

RaRaZ Fri 04-Oct-13 16:25:15

Thanks Babymama - excitedly waiting to tell DP! Have fun tonight missus wink - and best of luck!

Hey quick question before I start catching up on the last few days.
AF arrived wednesday, it's now Friday and it's gone- like properly gone. Does this mean I have a smaller cycle? I've always had short periods but not this short.
Thanks In advance

Stats please life and babymama, will add you all later, on phone at mo.

Re ov, its recommended you test from cd 10 due to early ov. Get bding!!

wispaxmas Fri 04-Oct-13 18:27:31

babymama, what everyone else said re 12-36 hrs later, though keep in mind that sometimes you can get a +opk and not actually ovulate, then get another surge a few days later. If you're regular like clockwork, though, it's not likely for that to happen.

The only way to know how long after the +opk you actually ovulate would be to track your bbt as well. Though, if you keep an eye on cervical mucus and you notice it all but dries up, that another good indication ovulation has happened the previous day or thereabouts.

I'm now going to a mini beer festival tomorrow so, my resolve has weakened and I'll be testing tomorrow morning. It'll be one day early that's ok right?

mama31 Fri 04-Oct-13 19:06:22

English I think that sounds like a good plan...best check before the beer festival lol

I'm hibernating tonight with wine....still a while yet til my fertile week so just taking it easy and not even thinking about ttc right now....

indiangirl2013 Mon 07-Oct-13 06:28:09

So guys, AF arrived almost 3 days late, after weird spotting for 4 days. Sigh. This is it for this cycle smile Hoping for a better one next!

Hi all, my bfp was due 2nd October but sadly I was caught by the witch. But as my cycles are now 27/28 days Id like to stay on the bus please

Flame40s ttc#3 cycle4 bfp 30th

Feeling more hopeful this month as we are managing to dtd on the right days. My OPK tests say I am at Peak now and we dtd last night and 2 nights ago too so I'll be trying every day till I get a negative opk now.

Btw I was taking the pregnacare tablets and they turn you symptom crazy! Metalic taste, sore boobs, vivid dream etc

Just thought id share that although they are great for pregnancy prep.

Good luck to everyone on the bus and congratulations to those that got their bfp smile
