The long awaited April bus for those penis-dragon-worshipping, green pom pom waving, non symptom spotting ladies who will get their BFP this month!

Spotti Mon 17-Mar-14 11:23:29

Just to get us started, here's my stats.

Spotti, TTC#1, cycle 4. Trying to take a more relaxed approach this time around.

Over to you...

Hey all,

Going to jump on bard too.
MrBsMrsB TTC#1 Cycle#4 BFP due April 3rd

Currently at CD10 and normally ov around CD13 - so I have about 5 dtd sessions starting tonight. Been on Morrisons brand cough mixture with guaifenesin and my body seems to be responding nicely smile

lindamagoo Mon 17-Mar-14 12:27:14

MrsB how often are you taking the medicine? Is it not disgusting? The boots one is confused

GeorgieWilson Mon 17-Mar-14 12:36:35

Woohoo - the bus has arrived.
GeorgieWilson TTC#2 Cycle#3 BFP due 12th April.

Hi everyone id like to add myself on here.first time ever posting on MN!

MummyTwo85 Ttc #3 cycle 2 bfp due 13th april

Hi ladies, hopping on from the March bus!!

Trying to remember what cycle I'm on!!

Spinningirl10 ttc #3 cycle 6 post mc, bfp due April 6th.

Bring on these Christmas Babies smile

MrBsMrsB Mon 17-Mar-14 14:38:59

Lindamagoo The cough mixture is nasty, absolutely disgusting. But if someone told me that eating frogs eyeballs may get my my BFP - I'd probably consider it - AND I HATE FROGS
I'm taking 2 table spoons every morning and following it up with copious amounts of water because water is good for me and not because im trying to get rid of the taste from my mouth

Possible TMI alert
I've not really ever been blessed in the cm department and so have always used lubes etc. Just bought Conceive Plus for this cycle too. But 4 days of the cough mixture and dtd has been pretty smooth no pun intended
I'll keep you updated to see if it keeps working. I'll stop taking it on CD13 cos that's probably when I'll ov. Aside from ttc, I'm going to have to find a more permanent solution to my lack of CM

Welcome MummyTwo85

lindamagoo Mon 17-Mar-14 14:45:12

Welcome Mummy and good luck smile

MrsB I've started taking the medicine again today cause your right, anything that's going to help is worth the rank taste smile

Metalhead Mon 17-Mar-14 15:15:13

Hellooo, can I join too please?

Metalhead, ttc#2, cycle 5 but first one post mc so no idea when (or indeed if) I will ovulate, but hopefully BFP should be due around mid to late April.

Currently on CD1 and first AF post mc is certainly a bitch pain-wise... still, I've never been so glad to see her as it means we can start trying again! smile

Spotti Mon 17-Mar-14 15:40:17

Woop, we have passengers!

I'll get on with a stats list later on tonight (will have to boot up the old laptop as my iPad is just too faffy when it comes to cutting and pasting).

Forgot to add my most important detail to my own stats...my BFP due date! Duh!

Spotti, TTC #1, cycle 4, BFP due somewhere towards the end of April (purposely not taking note of the date...the intention being that if I don't know then I can't obsess or test early ).

Anyone in the mood for a penis dragon? I'm sure I can find my favourite on google...

Or there's this one...it's a bit rude (and ewww to all that 'dragon dribble' in her hair!) but it's a new one! Anything goes, right?

lindamagoo Mon 17-Mar-14 15:41:57

Go for it Spotti, I need a giggle today smile

missmrsmummy Mon 17-Mar-14 15:50:04

Hi fellow passengers

missmrsmummy TTC#1, Cycle#5, BFP due 10th April

missmrsmummy Mon 17-Mar-14 15:57:11

MrBsMrsB I am glad to hear the guafywhatsit is working for you! I have just bought some cheap Sainsburys mixture. It says it contains cherry flavouring so hoping it might be swallow-able! I used to get lots of cm pre-TTC but annoyingly now, hardly any and it's never ewcm.

What are all your plans for getting a BFP this cycle? I'll post my 'to do' list here!

- Green tea every morning
- WellWoman capsule every evening
- Cough mixture every day from end of AF to ov
- DH taking WellMan Conception every evening
- Grapefruit juice every day up to ov
- Pineapple juice every day after ov
- Pre-seed lube
- CB Digi OPK
- Reflexology in the week before ov
- Vitamin B6 every day to try to lengthen luteal phase (currently 9 days)

Any other ideas? As you can see, I'm open to suggestions!

toots123 Mon 17-Mar-14 15:59:34

Maybe some sex missmrs grin

lindamagoo Mon 17-Mar-14 16:03:03

Haha toots I was about to say the same, you wont get far without the sex missmrs grin

missmrsmummy Mon 17-Mar-14 16:05:00

Ohhhhh... so that's where I've been going wrong! grin

lindamagoo Mon 17-Mar-14 16:05:45

Seen as this is only our first month ttc again I am just going with ic opk's, cough medicine and conceive plus. As the months go by my list will defo get bigger

I'm doing:
Grapefruit pre-ov
Pineapple post-ov
Well woman/man every evening
Cough medicine pre-ov
Conceive plus lube
Dtd EOD + every day around ov.
Clearblue digi opks
Cutting down caffeine and sugar intake
Micro managing my diabetes
Not forgetting the NUDP!

I think that's it?!

lindamagoo Mon 17-Mar-14 16:38:03

Can you have grapefruit and pineapple juice or does it have to be the actuall fruit?

MissMrsMummy Mon 17-Mar-14 16:44:43

Good plan Poly

I'd like to know that too Linda - not sure? If juice is ok, it'll probably have to be the pure juice, rather than 'juice drink' (from concentrate). More expensive!

DH and I need a special TTC fund putting to one side. We should have asked for contributions towards it at our wedding! Such a costly venture, lol.
