Thought I'd start a thread for those of us hoping for the best Christmas present ever! Anyone else TTC and hoping for a BFP around Christmas time? smile

Hi - you should join the dec bus - all wanting the same thing there!

amy246 Tue 26-Nov-13 12:29:27

I thought I'd buck the trend and go rogue!

MrsW0931 Tue 26-Nov-13 12:44:48

Hi Amy - coil due out tomorrow (eek) and am hoping although i know the chances are slim for a BFP for my DH's xmas present!
He has been begging me day in day out to have my coil out so i am planning on either telling him on xmas day its out or presenting him with the BFP!

How long have you been ttc? - is it baby no.1?

amy246 Tue 26-Nov-13 12:48:32

That's so exciting! Good luck for tomorrow! Yes it'll be our first, what about you? And our second cycle of trying- practice makes perfect! Lol.

allchatnicknamesgone Tue 26-Nov-13 12:50:43

Cool. If you are looking for tips / answers and general hand holding you tend to get it on the buses pretty quickly as high concentration of women on there too! Good luck

lucyfluff Tue 26-Nov-13 12:52:13

Yes please!!!!!! that would be a perfect xmas pressie grin grin

MrsW0931 Tue 26-Nov-13 13:28:18

Its my third blush however its my first with my husband as my 2 children were from a previous relationship so its his first baby hence why hes the one begging for me to get my coil out! ha.

Iv already bought tests and ovulation strips on amazon in preperation how sad am i... lol

amy246 Tue 26-Nov-13 14:32:05

That's not sad at all! It's exciting! I've got my preg test bought ready for Christmas! And I've even practised using one- I knew it would be negative but I really wanted to try one out! grin

MrsW0931 Tue 26-Nov-13 16:58:47

lol ok i dont feel so crazy now that i did one the other night too...just to test it out ovbs! blush Never used the strips before so wanted to have a practice!

My DS and DD were completely unexpected so ive never experienced the whole TTC thing so its pretty exciting getting to do this bit this time around grin

lucyfluff Tue 26-Nov-13 18:57:02

Haha I have become a poas addict ttc this time!!! Dont worry about all the craziness it becomes normal after a while wink

MrsW0931 Tue 26-Nov-13 19:21:56

Lol yeA i may aswell just surrender to the craziness now!
How long have u been ttc lucy?

R u taking any suppliments like folic acid? How r u planning on getting thru the christmas period with possibly having to cover up the no alcohol thing to fam and friends?

StellaLuna82 Tue 26-Nov-13 20:07:16

Hi ladies, can I join? I am TTC for #1, second cycle. I find the buses very confusing! If I get a BFP, it will be just before Christmas, we spend it with a lot of family and friends and alcohol is usually very free flowing, so little unsure how I'd cover that up!! smile

lucyfluff Tue 26-Nov-13 20:57:52

Ive been trying since Aug MrsW...fell within six weeks but had a early miscarraige sad this is my 2nd cycle following it - had to wait for proper period! Hoping for a xmas bfp!!!

How about you?

ps girls the buses are fun come and join us!!! grin

lucyfluff Tue 26-Nov-13 20:59:27

Im taking folic acid too and will carry on with drinking wine with friends etc until I get bfp...it we do then Im sure they will guesssmile

Justpenny Tue 26-Nov-13 21:27:53

Hiya! Can I join too! Have been off the cerazette pill now for a couple of weeks, just about finished AF so my DP is doing the deed tonight whether he likes it or not!!! Fingers crossed for everyone!!! xxxx

newforest Tue 26-Nov-13 22:02:56

Me too!! We half-heartedly tried in September but leaving it until December to try again - due BFP around 31st. Would be great to start the new year with a positive.

amy246 Wed 27-Nov-13 07:08:58

I'm taking the Seven Seas trying to conceive vitamins. They're quite good value for money: less than £3. And I'm using a Monthly cycles app on my phone to track potential ovulation days. Must try not to symptom spot this month tho! It's obsessive!

A good tip for hiding alcohol consumption is tell everyone you're skint so you're not doing rounds, go to the bar on your own and order tonic or soda water with wedge of lemon/lime and voila, instant "gin" and tonic! Same with parties, take your own small bottle (plain water) saying you didn't want to bring the whole litre bottle.

I'm hoping to give dh a bfp for his Xmas pressie too. Was thinking of wrapping the test up but thought that might be a bit unhygenic!

MrsW0931 Wed 27-Nov-13 11:15:03

do it Flipflipping he will be so suprised, thats what ill probably do- or buy some sort of funny guide for being a daddy or something similar that will make him double look and then look at me in shock! Cant wait for that look grin

Coil is due out in 3.25 hours argh...bricking it i really am. Im so foul at work today and just sitting in my corner of the office avoiding any chit chat!

I found when i was pregnant with my DD that i went out with the girls and just didnt even mention the fact i wasnt drinking, i had one drink with alcohol at the start of the night and then just bought coke with no vodka in and it wasnt until about half 10 my friend asked if i was gonna leave half my drink on the table as they were moving pubs, i said yes and so she said she would have it - after she tasted it she soon realised there was no vodka in it and questioned pregnancy straight away to i told her - luckily shes also my neice so i didnt mind her finding out really but next time i will make sure never to leave any in my glass! ha

I'm lucky that drinking is no hassle for me because I don't drink anyway anymore. Not through choice but I developed an allergy after my pfb. I'm so excited and really hope it happens this cycle in time for Xmas. I prob will put it in a card or something if it does.

Good luck with your coil, be excited it's the first step smile

Honkyponk Wed 27-Nov-13 11:41:41

Try not to worry about having your coil out its nothing like when its put in. They just have a look with the speculum what not and whip it out. It doesn't hurt promise! X

MrsW0931 Wed 27-Nov-13 12:05:01

I cant stop it, got butterflies in my stomach now that wont budge. Im just paranoid that the strings have gone out of reach as i can only just feel the end of them now where as before i could feel a lot more so the string has obviously gone up a little..

MrsW0931 Wed 27-Nov-13 12:07:41

to be fair i hardly ever go out now but over christmas its going to be hard trying to avoid it when im usually the shots ring leader! New years eve were going out and my works meal in a few weeks which i suppose will be fine as i wont actually be pregnant then. Ur lucky if u dont drink anymore as thats one thing less to have to miss!

Thats would be a good idea if you do get ur BFP, maybe buy him a christmas card from 'the bump' or to Daddy, and wait to see his face when he opens it. grin

FlipFlippingFlippers Wed 27-Nov-13 12:38:58

I might make him a card cos I'm a soppy sod like that. Even if it doesn't happen in time for Xmas! It'll be easier for them to take out even if you think it's moved so try not to worry. Let us know how it goes smile
