No worries Rpopz. I'm on another thread to discuss our difficulties, trying to keep it out of the regular buses :-) but yeah we are both having tests. Until its proven otherwise we are still hopeful it will happen naturally :-)

DrewsWife Sat 29-Mar-14 20:20:53

Sorry you are here xx.

RPopz Sat 29-Mar-14 20:24:14

Ah I see. Well sorry to hear about AF and fx for you for April x

Right I've bought some ov sticks! Told DH we are doing the SMEP and that's final! If this doesn't work I'll be VERY ANGRY! I Mean business this month!

toothachereturns Sun 30-Mar-14 14:11:02

Im in!
cd11, 2nd month ttc no.3.
Af due 16th April-ish. Debatable positive opk last night.... I'll do another tonight to see if I get a stronger result. Either way, the theme of this weekend and next week will be lots of DTD. grin

RPopz Sun 30-Mar-14 14:14:27

Haha Victoria, love the determination! Ive just bought a clearblue fertility monitor on ebay... AF not even arrived yet lol. Talk about pessimism!

toothachereturns Sun 30-Mar-14 14:19:27

What's SMEP?

victoria401 Sun 30-Mar-14 15:49:49

Sperm meets egg plan toothache I think it consists of dtd every other day from cd8 in conjunction with ov prediction sticks. Was going to do it last month but had many setbacks at the start (pet died then I got sciatica and could not walk let alone night acrobatics!) Plus didn't buy opks. Didn't start dtd til day 11 or 12 so think missed the boat. Must have ovd early as short cycle, only 26 days.

That's another thing. I started bleeding day 27 so coz that's now day 1 did I have 26 day cycle or 27? There is much debate on my facebook ttc group!

victoria401 Sun 30-Mar-14 15:52:54

Oh yeah was reading the leaflet in my opk packet. Says if you do not get preg after 3 or 4 months using this product consult your doctor. They'd just tell you to Bugger off and come back after a year or 2. Silly leaflet....

DrewsWife Sun 30-Mar-14 16:19:08

Ovulation detected today by my monitor. Have only managed to dtd once due to shifts clashing. Arghhhh. Feeling like it's never going to happen. Hubby is in tonight and tomorrow until 4. So really going to have to get him that berocca to keep his energy up!! Lol.

toothachereturns Sun 30-Mar-14 16:28:21

Thanks Victoria! Ive been doing that technique without even realising it had its own acronym. smile
We dtd cd7, 9, 10 and will pounce again tonight on cd11.
I think I normally ovulate around day 13/14, but not sure of cycles since my mirena was removed so here goes!

DrewsWife Sun 30-Mar-14 16:39:25

I'm ovulating early. Today is day 11. Not sure if it's a good or bad thing. I have noticed a lot of creamy discharge. Is that good or bad?? I don't normally get a lot of that.

RPopz Sun 30-Mar-14 17:55:16

I've read that in a book too Vic, if you're using opks and temping and all the rest of it and don't conceive in 3-6 months you should go to gp.... can't imagine how they'dreact to it though!

Is smep from a book or something? Only ever heard of it on here.

If af day is day one then you had a 26 day cycle surely!

victoria401 Sun 30-Mar-14 18:12:55

In that case I've written down all my other cycles wrong! Bummer!

RPopz Sun 30-Mar-14 18:17:57

Well I'm no expert! That's just how I'd interpret it x

victoria401 Sun 30-Mar-14 18:57:22

It only occured to me today! I'm a scientist, I should know this stuff! Did they teach this in BMS school?

RPopz Sun 30-Mar-14 20:09:04

Haha, not sure I learned anything remotely relevant to anything in bms school ;-) x

NewlymrsB Mon 31-Mar-14 09:17:17

Cycles normally 30-34 days. Today is day 35 tested today BFN. Had slight pink tinge on sat eve when I wiped after dtd (sorry tmi) since then nothing!!

Driving me crazy, is there hope for a BFP soon??!

DrewsWife Mon 31-Mar-14 11:57:39

I hope you get a bfp xx.

Hubby is now really unwell. Today is my last day of ovulation. We managed 2x this month grrrr. Thursday and Sunday. Am I still fertile afterwards? I reckon this month is a no go for me. Arghhhhh. He is working tonight into tomorrow. Then off until Wednesday afternoon.

I hate our shifts.

NewlymrsB Mon 31-Mar-14 12:03:27

Sorry to hear that Drew! Fingers crossed some if his guys have stuck around!

I'm starting to think maybe I didn't ovulate this cycle...only cycle I haven't used Opks, typical hey!

MelMc73 Mon 31-Mar-14 13:07:57

Hello, just marking my place here TTC #1 with husband (we've one DS each separately, mine wasn't planned so this is all quite new!), CD6 of 2nd cycle TTC after coming off pill. Waiting for clearblue digital OPKs to arrive to assist! Fx to everyone this month!!

DrewsWife Mon 31-Mar-14 13:13:55
