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

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

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!

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....

englishteacher78 Fri 04-Oct-13 19:00:55

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?

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.

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!!

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

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

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

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

That's good, catch him nice and early then! Lol

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

Hahaha mama31 !!!! DH on his way home from 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.

mama31 Fri 04-Oct-13 16:05:49

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

Babymamatobe Fri 04-Oct-13 16:01:38

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!

RaRaZ Fri 04-Oct-13 15:57:10

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!

Babymamatobe Fri 04-Oct-13 15:51:03

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 :-)

lifehasafunnywayofhelpinguout Fri 04-Oct-13 15:44:52

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.

ItsSoFluffyImGonnaDie Fri 04-Oct-13 15:33:04

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

LH1981 Fri 04-Oct-13 14:56:10

Thanks wispa and Bloumer
I hate this waiting! xx

Bloumer Fri 04-Oct-13 14:41:15

LH when coming off the pill, once you've ovulated you should get AF. That is unless you've conceived, in which case you won't get AF - so yes it is possible to get pg after the pill without ever having AF!

That said, there really is no rhyme or reason to your body's behaviour as it takes over production of hormones, which stops while the pill is providing them artificially. I thought I had ovulated last month - I got a +OPK - but all I got was a couple of days of very light spotting at 8/9 dpo. All the OPK detects is a LH surge, which usually means an egg is about to be released. But if my body still wasn't ready it may have tried and failed to ovulate (hence the LH surge and +OPK).

Or I may have ovulated, but perhaps the womb lining wasn't thick enough hence spotting at 8 dpo - maybe a very light period (and 8-day luteal phase, not long enough to support pg).

I didn't use opks this month so I'm assuming I ovulated based on symptoms (mostly EWCM, spots, sore boobs etc). I'm counting dpo from then so hopefully I'll either get BFP or AF over the next week. But who knows!

Incidentally, my body started to sort itself out after I started taking pregnacare conception - started getting loads of hormone symptoms and thought I was pg! Nope.

Sorry for the essay, hope it was useful LH and anyone else coming off the pill!

wispaxmas Fri 04-Oct-13 14:30:10

Meant to add - LH, I've got my fingers and toes crossed for you that it's a positive!

wispaxmas Fri 04-Oct-13 14:28:42

An evap line shows up when the test is actually drying, and it will have absolutely no colour in it from the dye. A faint positive may look grey in an IC, but a positive will have the colour of the dye if you can get a good enough look. FRs are good, even a very faint positive will look pink. If your faint line looks like it has a tinge of the dye colour and is in the right location on the stick, it's a good bet it's not an evaporation line.

7 BFP's so far!!
