Hi all,

DH & I are TTC DC3, we have DD 4 & DS 2, AF due 6th feb....

Coffeechocolate Sun 26-Jan-14 12:21:05

Hi DGLLB, also ttc dc3, have ds 10 and dd 7, AF (BFP) due 6th Feb too! Fingers x for both if us!

Coffeechocolate Sun 26-Jan-14 12:22:11

Oops, 8th Feb (but will probably POAS by the 6th lol).

DGLLB Sun 26-Jan-14 13:27:27

Hi coffee, how exciting fingers crossed for us both! have you been ttc for long?

Coffeechocolate Sun 26-Jan-14 13:34:36

It is exciting! Early days for us, this is only our second month of trying. I'm 38 though so am expecting it to take ages lol!
How about you, been TTC long?

DGLLB Mon 27-Jan-14 11:34:21

this is our 3rd month but 1st month we have "properly" tried, 2ww seems last forever!

ADifferentKindOfMum Mon 27-Jan-14 11:57:53

Hallo..third cycle here too. af is 2 days late but have had 2 bfn so far. On cycle 1 I was 5 days late for no apparent reason so I am assuming the same. Am 40.
Wow sorry for all the numbers haha!

Coffeechocolate Mon 27-Jan-14 22:02:21

Hi AdifferentKindOfMum, it's so mean when AF is late. I can be as regular as clockwork for months and then suddenly be a whole week late! Ridiculous!
Well, we'll see how ttc will affect AF!

MabelMay Mon 27-Jan-14 22:55:33

Hi -
Yes I can join. Have DS1 aged 7 and DS2 aged 2. Have been ttcing for nearly a year. Two MCs. MC in first cycle. and MMC back in August.

I'm 39. Have mild endo which isn't helping with the ttc business.
AF or BFP due 31st Jan.
Feeling positive this month - which is bound to be setting me up for some disappointment.

Hello and good luck all!

MabelMay Mon 27-Jan-14 22:56:07

Whoops! I mean my DS2 is aged 5. So it's going to be quite a gap if I ever do manage to get a number 3.

Coffeechocolate Tue 28-Jan-14 07:33:59

Hi MabelMay, so sorry to hear of your MCs, fingers crossed that this is your month.
As for age gaps, I'm wondering how my dd would cope, (she's just turned eight) with being a middle child! My ten year old ds is always asking for a baby brother or sister so he'd be fine lol!

ADifferentKindOfMum Tue 28-Jan-14 08:31:04

How is everyone? It is cd 32 here..looks like another anomally month like November. Before ttc I had absolute clockwork cycle of 28-29. Haven't tested since Sunday afternoon...going to hold off a bit longer as I hate the disappointment!

JanePurdy Tue 28-Jan-14 08:38:08

Wish I could join you! Went to have my IUD removed just after New Year so we can ttc #3 & found that the strings have lost - so waiting for my appointment in two weeks to get it removed by hysteroscopy. Can't moan too much as I will have only missed one cycle but I am ovulating now & my darn IUD is still in there! We have DC aged 5 & 2.

BobaFetaCheese Tue 28-Jan-14 09:52:57

Joining.

Ds's are 2 & 6m.

Cycle 1, others took 10 & 9 months ttc so not expecting much but af is a day late already, bfn yesterday.

Good luck everyone!

Coffeechocolate Tue 28-Jan-14 12:28:36

Wow AdifferentKindOfMum, not POASing since Sunday, that's some willpower lol. I know what you mean though, I'd much rather AF came than seeing a bfn.
That's frustrating JanePurdy, you just want to get on with it don't you?
Hi Boba, here's hoping we all get our BFPs soon,
Darn 2WW!

DGLLB Tue 28-Jan-14 16:28:24

Hi all last time I come in here there was 5 messages lol, iv been having period type pains this morning, can't remember having them with my two before so starting to think this month isn't my month sad

DGLLB Tue 28-Jan-14 16:29:27

Good luck every one! Adifferentkind you have some willpower, wish I did lol

Coffeechocolate Tue 28-Jan-14 18:47:55

You're not out yet DG, I had period type pains for weeks with my dd, was convinced AF was going to appear but never did.
I'm symptom spotting like no ones business here, which is just silly as AF isn't due until the 8th of Feb!

ADifferentKindOfMum Tue 28-Jan-14 20:19:16

A bit fed up. Got some cheap tests and for some stupid reason did one after the other around midday, copious toilet trips before hand...what a waste. Big bfn's. I should have left it until the morning and now I dont want to test again it is so gutting! No af in sight still. I've felt sick for over a week now so I'm sure if I was pregnant I'd be getting a positive result.

Coffeechocolate Tue 28-Jan-14 21:15:21

Oh no adifferent, that's so frustrating. But you know, as is said on here, you're not out until AF turns up.
It's so cruel that we get these symptoms that convince us we are pg, it just makes the bfns/AF more upsetting. Although we haven't been trying for the past few years I have had many months where I've thought I was pregnant with AF being late, what I thought were pg symptoms etc, and only when I took the hpt did AF show up almost immediately, it's like my own hope of being pregnant was stopping AF - weird!
On a more positive note, some people don't get BFPs for a few days after AF is late so there's still that chance.
Fingers crossed for you.

DGLLB Tue 28-Jan-14 21:24:22

Oh I really do hope so coffee smile

I'm also symptom spotting like mad! AF not due until 6th feb hmm

Adifferent don't give up yet it's not over until AF shows up

Coffeechocolate Tue 28-Jan-14 21:35:25

I've been having a few odd twinges which I've naturally put down to Unrealistically early pg symptoms! Had a rather painful on and off crampy type pain in one side when picking dcs up yesterday.
Telling myself that I probably always get such pains throughout the month but dismiss them!
I definitely think I'm more aware these aches and pains since I've started ttc! Driving myself bonkers!

DGLLB Wed 29-Jan-14 11:12:01

i agree, im much more aware of things since TTC, keep thinking and hoping every little twinge is not AF arriving, this 2ww seems to be lasting forever and i just want to know!

BobaFetaCheese Wed 29-Jan-14 12:43:58

different, sorry it's still bfn. It's not over until AF shows!

I'm knicker checking like a crazy lady thinking af must be on its way here so understand frustration!

Coffeechocolate Wed 29-Jan-14 20:17:39

Anyone else going symptom spotting Doolally?
I'm thirsty and tired - hahaha - it's not the beginning of a cold, it's a sign of pg!
Oh and I have a hangnail... Surely...
