I was so sure it was my month.did everything by the book.dtd eod.even had all the twinges and cramps but the witch decided to show.this cycle ONLY this cycle,no opks,no temping,no symptom spotting just love making only when the body feels like (eating,drinking n being merry) might just land us a surprise BFP in the new year.Im on cd1 and promising to be LOVING this cycle !!!!

Good luck!
The month I got my bfp was when I went on honeymoon, didn't bother with opks or anything and just had lots of good food and sex.

I'm up for that!

Mimilicious013 Thu 10-Dec-15 19:29:41

Thanks oyster will keep that in mind.
Hie owlina ,here's to the festive season full of fun!

Hi mimi, sorry AF got you. I think you might be onto something. I've got AF due on Tuesday - if she shows then I may join you. The idea of a month free of peeing in receptacles and peering at my cm in disappointment sounds appealing smile

Can I jump in!? TTC #2 with a big age gap... DS is 8, 2 DSS aged 8&5. Cycle #3, CD1!

Looking at my MN profile I joined before this message board even began! I was on the Oct 2007 birth board...

Generally taking a very relaxed approach but DP is now away Mon-Fri for next 4/5 months sad so may not happen for a while. Hoping to catch whilst we're relaxing over Christmas.

Welcome mrsj let's hope we enjoy our relaxing ride to a bfp.
Thanks crunchy fingers crossed that u get your bfp and only join us to cheer us on.are u poasing this wkend?

quitecrunchy Fri 11-Dec-15 13:32:36

Thanks mimi. Nah I'm planning to lay off the testing and only do it if AF is late. The BFN really gets me down and then i get annoyed at myself for being so disappointed. Part of me is hoping that even if AF does come it'll be late - would be nice to see the B6 having an effect on my luteal phase!

quitecrunchy Fri 11-Dec-15 13:38:36

Owl you spoke too soon! We'll have a drink on your behalf and raise a toast to your little bean grinwine

Hi mrs, good luck over the Xmas break!

Mimilicious013 Fri 11-Dec-15 17:11:06

owlina congratulations hey!!!
Having a few drinks tonight to celebrate all your bfps!!
Cheers !!

Mimi sorry that you got AF flowers boring and annoying isn't it! I am sad and fed up with TTC so I am with you. No peeing on any sticks, no obsessing, lots of merriment! No bans on alcohol, coffee, tea ect, no 'acting pregnant' until bfp (which won't come until AF is very late due to BAN on pee sticks) I am going to try hard to distract myself smile I hope this is our month, and if not, at least I hope it will be a less shit month fgrin winecake

Mimilicious013 Sat 12-Dec-15 17:08:15

Hie pumpkin hope u are feeling much better dear.af got me with a backache and terrible cramps.had planned to start of the cycle with a glass in my hand.no luck.here is hoping we have a good month and let the xmas spirit make this the shortest and positive cycle

Mimilicious013 Sat 12-Dec-15 17:48:21

Sorry for af hilzy let's hope we manage to let our hair down and just have a merry time.

Hi ladies! Sorry to everyone who hasn't got a bfp this month... At least you can properly enjoy Christmas! I took a relaxed approach with DS and took 11 months to catch nine years ago... Was 37 yesterday so feel the clock ticking now but planning on being super relaxed until DP is home full time again - I've always trusted that things will happen when they do, no point rushing or obsessing over it. This approach kept me sane during a stressful divorce (is there any other sort) and helped me meet a lovely man who has made me realise how much was wrong before. He is as keen on having another child as I am and he is amazed I'm as relaxed as this. We're just enjoying the ride grin

Mimilicious013 Sun 13-Dec-15 11:18:57

Happy belated birthday mrsj hope u enjoyed your day yesterday.it's nice to hear of a beautiful rltnshp.am right behind u coz am turning 35 in a few weeks.the relaxed approach keeps u a bit sane and hoping for an exciting festive season.

Mimilicious013 Sun 13-Dec-15 18:33:46

Hey crunchy,you spoke too soon too kkk.congratulations !!now we are toasting to your little bean.

quitecrunchy Sun 13-Dec-15 20:47:04

Haha thanks mimi! What was I saying about not testing early? blush I REALLY hope this is a true BFP and that it sticks. Will keep you up to date on the December bus.

Good luck to you all and have a brilliant christmas if I'm not back on here before then!
