Month 7 of TTC and keeping my fingers crossed we'll get a wonderful Christmas present!

Hey angelgabe! Had to reply because I'm at exactly the same stage as you smile

Well, I think I am... Always had textbook 28 day cycles until I had children, now after breastfeeding/coming off the pill in summer I've had cycles between 25 and 31 days (averages out at 28 days, which would make me due tues 10th).

When are you planning on testing? Or will you just wait for AF to rear her ugly head?

We didn't really "try" this month; just once on the last day of ewcm and once the morning after, so not holding out much hope sad

I'm with you. Cycle 3 of ttc #2. I've already tested as im so impatient and got bfn sad but am trying to convince myself it's still possible. When are you going to poas?

Poas again this morning. Bfp grin

I hope yours are as successful x

Loveyouthree Sun 08-Dec-13 13:14:03

Omg!! Congratulations ATruth(normal to be excited for someone I've never met?!) that's amazing smile

When was AF due? And which test did you use?

I'm meant to be poas on Tuesday, but I want to force myself to wait until the Friday (as if!).

Af due tues. Used an first response and a cheapie from home bargains. The fr is slightly clearer but there's a (faint) obvious line on both. Are you due on tues? I wouldn't be able to wait!

KitKat1985 Sun 08-Dec-13 15:30:44

Congrats ATruth! How exciting! xx grin

I'd like to wait with you angelgabe and loveyouthree if that's okay? I'm on CD32 (first month off pill, so may well just be a long cycle whilst hormones settle down). Got BFN yesterday but no sign yet of AF either (usually get really bloated and cracking headache the day before, and that's not happened as yet). Going to test again on Tuesday if no arrival of AF. Going a bit mad now.... hmm

Loveyouthree Sun 08-Dec-13 15:54:41

ATruth - congrats again! I think AF is due on Tuesday, yes. Although with DP working away we haven't really dtd much this cycle, so I really do think a BFP would show up by tues, if that makes sense.

Kitkat - please do join! Wish you the best of luck - I've also had a serious lack of my usual pms symptoms (spots that are impossible to hide and bursting into tears in the co op, to name a few from last month) but for some reason, I don't have a good feeling about this month sad also, don't want to get your hopes up BUT with dd1, I stopped the (combined) pill at the end of July, had withdrawal bleed and was pregnant by 10th August! It can happen quickly!

KitKat1985 Sun 08-Dec-13 16:47:52

Blimey, that was quick! I think your lack of PMS symptoms this time around sounds a good sign though. Is there a reason you don't feel hopeful? Or are you just trying not to get your hopes up? x

Loveyouthree Sun 08-Dec-13 19:18:33

I know- I'd only got together with my now fiancé on July 27th blush don't regret any of it though smile

Thank you.. Can't believe we're prob testing on the same day! Are you going to do it first thing? It's frustrating waiting for a period isn't it. I didn't have any for months while breastfeeding.

Suppose I'm trying not to get hopes up, but we only really dtd a couple of times, and only because I saw EWCM on cd12-13 and thought I was maybe ovulating.

Aargh I wish you could test straight after sex! smile

KitKat1985 Sun 08-Dec-13 20:35:10

Yes, that would be so much less frustrating! Will probably test first thing Tuesday morning with fmu. The next day and a half is going to drag! But yes, also trying not to get hopes up. I know realistically period is just taking it's time as I've just come off the pill, and it's unlikely I'm pregnant this month, but I can't help hoping! grin Wishing you good luck for Tuesday! x

Wishing you all a good luck smile thanks

I am totally rubbish at knowing when my period is due, when the last one was and all that useful information, under the circumstances stuff. I can barely remember what I had for breakfast. But we dtd at around the right time this month and I sort of feel a bit, well, pregnant, I suppose, so I would love to wait with you ladies if that would be alright?

We have one DD, 19mo, already and would really love a bfp for Christmas. Not sure when to test, but will try and hang on until the end of the week.

Fingers crossed for all of us!

mummybare - I was like that before, but got the MyDays app on my phone and now track it much better!

mummybare Sun 08-Dec-13 21:53:12

Thanks, ATruth - obviously I hope its services won't be required, but I will definitely be looking that up if it doesn't work out this month. I've been wracking my brain to retrace my steps over the last month or so, but it's all a bit hazy (not that my cycle has ever been 28 days anyway, but that's another story). I have just sort of arbitrarily told myself to wait a week to try and avoid a false bfn, but not sure I'll be able to wait that long, tbh.

No, hopefully you won't need it grin

KitKat1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 09:16:46

Yeah, of course you are welcome to wait with us mummybare. grin When do you think you will test? Oh and thanks to ATrust for the good luck wishes. Wishing you back a healthy and happy pregnancy! x

angelgabe Mon 09-Dec-13 09:26:48

OMG ATruth...fantastic news! No AF arrived for me...due to test tomorrow...aargh!
I can't test earlier as have done that before and it was so disappointing. Temp still up today and it normally drops day before my AF arrives! I might wait until Wednesday to test.....so nervous I wo'nt be that I think i'd rather put off testing and daydream that I a pregnant! Ridiculous i know but don't want the disappointment. Loveyouthree are you testing tomorrow??! Kitkat you're cd32?! Wow i've got fingers and toes crossed for you. My GP said I could get pregnant really quickly after coming off pill so you never know.
Good luck ladies!!! Too nerve-wracking!!!!
xx

mummybare Mon 09-Dec-13 10:10:37

Thanks KitKat - it's good to know there are others in the same boat! I haven't even said anything to DH yet as I'd love to surprise him with a bfp.

Had a bit of a flashback that I was on my period at a funeral I went to on 13 Nov so I think I might test on Weds. Will buy 2 though as it might be a bit early. I think I need to do it though, because I'm going to totally convince myself otherwise and it'll be a massive disappointment if it's a bfn.

Eeeek! Best of luck for those testing tomorrow - I'll have everything crossed for you.

angelgabe Mon 09-Dec-13 10:59:43

Mummybare i might wait until Wednesday with you!!

Loveyouthree Mon 09-Dec-13 11:31:47

Caved this morning and got a bfn sad

Disappointed!!

mummybare Mon 09-Dec-13 12:31:33

Aww very sorry to hear that Loveyou.

At least if you're not pg over Christmas you can have lots of lovely smelly cheese and pate and have some drinks at New Year. <silver lining>

Still, it is disappointing, I know.

Loveyouthree Mon 09-Dec-13 13:43:33

I know, I know - I'm most definitely going to drink and eat everything!

Going to test again on thurs if still no AF, but I think I'm 90% not pregnant...

angelgabe Mon 09-Dec-13 15:58:40

Sorry to hear that Loveyouthree....that is disappointing. I think that's why i'm putting it off as just sure I won't be but while I still don't know for sure I can dream! It's not over until the witch arrives so don't panic just yet!

Sorry loveyouthree sad but how many dpo are you? I got a bfn before my bfp.
