The Rules...

(1) A lady may only POAS on a Friday.
(2) Friday means the day that everyone calls Friday in the time zone where you spent the night.
(3) Rule (1) does not apply to POA-OPK-S, UNLESS they are being illegitimately used as surrogate HCG detectors, in which case Rule (1) most definitely does apply
(4) Rule (1) does not apply following a BFP because if you want to waste £25 a day POADigiS that's your prerogative <<refuses to admit that's what I'll do>>
(5) Rule (1) does not apply if a lady is POAS in an attempt to get a BFN to prove she can start DTD with intent
(6) Rule (1) does not apply if a lady wants for unknown reason to pee on an actual stick, like a twig or some such, if that lady is unexpectedly caught short whilst tramping in the forest looking for bears.
(7) These rules (including Rule (1)) are subject to the change at any time if the ladies of the Posifrickentivity thread decide on a whim come up with empirical evidence to prove that it is luckier to POAS on any other day of the week
(8) Violators of Rule (1) shall be subject to fish throwing.

And as a grand finale, why not pledge to NEVER POAS before 14DPO?

Boom!

Parsley2506 Mon 24-Mar-14 12:44:58

Dammit, I forgot to add Posifrickentivity to the title. I hope the fertility gods won't frown on me for doing so.

Shall we start with a new stats list?

Sebs, sorry you're feeling low, you've been through so bloody much, sending you very un-mn hugs. And fish slaps to all who need them.

Hi new thread!

CakesALot 30, ttc since Nov 2013, bfp Jan 2014, mmc and erpc Feb 2014.

Been away from it all this weekend. Hugs and fish slaps to those that need them! And I have everything crossed for any potential BFPs.

I'm expecting af to show up in the next few days. I was sure she was arriving early on Friday but now all those feelings have melted away and I feel sort of nothingy again!

Metalhead Mon 24-Mar-14 13:25:42

Cheers for the new thread Parsley! Can't stay long for now so will just quickly add my stats - which are exactly the same as yours sebs! hmm

Ooh, you guys are stat-twins smile. Thanks for the new Fred parsley!

Seasides, 27, TTC #1 since Sep 2012, BFP Dec '12, ectopic Dec '12.

Now on cycle 9, or 11, depending on how you see it - took a 2 month break after EP on doc's orders, then 2 months TTC but cycles haywire so I don't think they count, then 2 cycle break on acupuncturist's orders. So I'm going with cycle 9, which is still bloody long enough! Waiting for appointment to see if remaining tube is a duffer.

Thanks sebs - you summed it up right there. Though sometimes I wish DH and I could pause time for a while until I'm upduffed, and then re-start it and join in with all the baby fun.

GOOD LUCK with doc tomorrow parsley, may the MN force be with you.

Can I get an EWCM gold star please? I don't usually get much, but clearly all the wine and [tea] I've been drinking count as hydration as today's def the day. DH should prepare himself for a seasides-sized serving of tith when he walks through the door after work!

There are literally no other humans on this earth I could expect to be excited about my CM. So thank you all for that!

zahazie Mon 24-Mar-14 14:24:45

Hello,

Can I join?
I have been lurking around reading this thread, so I feel as if I know you already (sorry, I hope it doesn't sound stalker-ish!).

Here are my stats:
zahazie, 34, TTC #1, BFP first cycle (Jan 14), MC Feb 14. My doctor put me on the pill for 21 days after MC (to sort out the WTF cycle more quickly), so I am now back on Cycle 1 TTC.

Starting temping this month, and also had a first session acupuncture today. I am concerned as I think I have a very short luteal phase, hence the temping (and also starting to observe CM).

Very torn feeling between: just wanting to have a casual approach to TTC, and desperately needing to do something.

Penguin13 Mon 24-Mar-14 14:25:46

Seasides I have been waiting for just such an occasion to deploy my 'congratulations on your abundant ewcm' card grin That TITH will slip down a treat

Thanks for the new thread!

Currently sat in A&E waiting to get some acute pain checked out post-surgery sad

Looking forward to lots of BFPs on this thread soon...

Seasides Mon 24-Mar-14 14:40:28

Welcome zahazie - there's not a huge amount of casual TTC (or toad in the hole, as we like to call it) going on here, I think more of the embrace your obsessiveness or is that just me?! Basically, what I mean is that you can't be too crazy. We will understand!

Aw, thanks penguin, I'll put it up on my mantelpiece and freak my mother-in-law out grin

Seasides Mon 24-Mar-14 14:41:22

Good luck jetpack (great name!), hope you get the pain sorted quickly. Sorry for both your losses.

Sorry I missed you littlelady I will try and do another update later and add you then.

Welcome to any newbies. The route to getting here is awful but we do try and have a laugh amongst the angst and support. Hope all is well jetpack

Sorry you are having a down day sebs

Good luck with the interview otters

Massively frustrating English I am not sure I whether I ovd this cycle either. The signs were there (ewcm, the post-mc-post-ov sore boobs) but never got a positive opk (I ran out on CD 19 and thought sod it). So who knows what will happen? Fertility Friend is predicting AF on Friday so if I haven't started spotting before then I will poas

I have had my Day21 test done as well as tests for chlamydia and gonorrhoea (just had to goggle both to get the spellings, must remember to delete my search history...) - which are apparently prereqs before the infertility clinic will see me. Booked in for Day1 tests on 1st April. I have told DH he can hold off making an apt until we know this month is a no go. I think he has everything crossed even more than usual grin

sebsmummy1 Mon 24-Mar-14 15:47:27

I am currently sitting in my front garden in the wind having attacked the flower bed and added a little fence thingie contemplating life I have no energy to punctuate that sentence I am so miserable sad. I really really dispise my body. The only good thing it has ever done is produce my son.
