Hugh enjoys ISW and his love affair with Doreen. He watches out for skittle tits and weepyitis. Mrs Arseholey Fucknut (Af) shows up when you least want her but brings wine and soft cheese as a consolation prize.

We don't have rules as such but expect to be talked down from the ledge with kind and well meaning but firm words if you get too hysterical. But most importantly don't convince yourself you're pregnant in the tww That is paramount! It messes with your head and makes you crazy crazier

We don't get a lot of baby dust in these here parts. We want a fanny full of determined Doreen, not unicorn farts and gnome tears with extra sparkle. We've been going a while now so the novelty has somewhat worn off and we're slightly battle scarred and bruised in the cervix area.

Post your stats and add your dates. A more lovely, supportive group of ladies you couldn't wish to meet. We've got a few grads sticking around I won't leave and no question is too daft. We have opk experts, cervical mucus management teams and symptom spotters extraudinaire!

WE SHALL WIN IN THE GAME OF SPERM MEETS EGG! IT WILL HAPPEN!

StarkyTheDirewolf Sun 17-Apr-16 12:05:47

Starky, 29. 8+3. Don't feel upduffed at all. Still waiting on af. Haven't told a soul (except Mr Starky) and it's starting to drive me a little bit batty!

First cycle of using OPKs and got a peak yesterday . Also used EPO for the first time this month.

Usually got at not symptom spotting in the first week of TWW and then turn into a crazy lady for the last week!

Currently waiting for DP to get home so we can start on ISW!

Ni4444 Sun 17-Apr-16 13:21:31

5tar I'm so sorry about mmc. Sending lots of love your way. You got upduffed really quickly, right? Hope you get a quick run this time too!!

Stark you haven't told anyone?? How are you managing to do that? I'd have to sellotape my mouth closed...and I'd still be like a charades player acting it out!!

5tardusty Sun 17-Apr-16 13:59:20

Hello ni yes, thankfully i did get pregnant on cycle 2, though in hindsight we missed ovulation in cycle 1 so didn't give ourselves the best chance first go round (rookie errors grin) I'm trying to be positive about that, but a little worried that my expectations will be high for a quick upduff, as much as i try to manage them!

I just hope i get lucky before my original due date really sad.

Currently sitting next to Starky on this crazy rollercoaster with an 8+3 bean growing away inside, making me pukey and grumpy. However, I've had to tell work because of time tabling for school next year and just told both sets of parents this week. My mum is already chomping at the bit to buy stuff! Got upduffed on cycle 4 which felt like forever of trying so understand what y'all are going through.

Really hoping this is a lucky thread for everyone still waiting for their BFPs!

Cycle #3, CD 15. Thinking I'm 1 DPO but Fertility Friend is still deciding whether or not that's the case. DTD a few times over the last few days so here's hoping smile Am feeling a little more laid back this cycle than the previous 2 at least; the first 2 months I found it hard to think of anything else.

StarkyTheDirewolf Sun 17-Apr-16 14:34:39

ni we decided really early on that we would wait until after the 12 week scan to tell. I thought I'd have told my dsis immediately, and my mum, but I've held back because im so scared of something going wrong, it would upset my sister beyond words and I don't want to do that to her (she's younger and dying to be an auntie, doesn't even know we were trying.)

Same sort of goes for my friends, they live the other side of the country so it seemed pointless. Plus I'm still having to take it a day at a time. I can't believe I'll get as far as 12 weeks, my anxiety is starting to go a bit haywire this week. Really trying hard to keep calm and breathe deep. Dh is aware though so is keeping a close eye on me and keeps bringing me treats!

This will be a lucky thread. I can feels it in my bones!

AliceScarlett Sun 17-Apr-16 14:42:11

Hi all. I fell off the thread about early March I think. But I hath returneth. Really really hoping I'm not going to see cycle 5.

1 week to go, just waiting for the classic AF style slight cramps that I seem to get the week leading up to AF.

Where's the stats? Kat?

Also, random question, Us anyone else avoiding peas and NSAIDs? Or is this just me being paranoid?

AliceScarlett Sun 17-Apr-16 14:44:00

Starky I'm so pleased for you smile I read your blog the other day. Twas interesting. Told DH about the poo checking incident, he said you've got a brave one there grin

Ni4444 Sun 17-Apr-16 14:55:32

Avoiding Peas? What's that all about Alice??

Oh Stark anxiety is such a pain. But you're right, taking it one day at a time, looking after yourself and redirecting your attention whenever you spot the worry thoughts coming in the key to surviving it. Have you any new projects that you're working on atm?

Mooseville Sun 17-Apr-16 15:26:08

Peas???? Alice do tell? Is this something else we can't eat now???

Plodding along in this crazy conception battle! Love having this thread as somewhere to talk about it all! Pretty sure I'm out this month as only DTD once this month over intense sex week due to a course. Has taken a few months, but DP now seems more on board and not as petrified. I may have told him he can have a PS4 once I'm knocked up which seems to have helped his enthusiasm Next month I'm planning an every other day strategy!!!

The evidence is slim to none, but I've got it in my head that I might as well avoid them hmm

TTC #1 since December 2015
Cycle 4 (very irregular cycle lengths)
CD35 erghhhh seems like it's gona be another long one.
Think I ovulated either around CD15 or CD20 possibly but not really got much of a clue.

This was my first month using the clear blue advanced fertility monitor but only got highs and no peaks which isn't unusual for the first month.

Had AF cramps since CD25 then stopped yesterday and no balloon tits like I'd usually get before AF. Tested this am, I thought I saw the faintest squinter of a second line within time limit but OH thinks I was seeing things no doubt true. OH chucked it before I could torture myself over it. I suppose if there was anything there it'll still be there in a few days.

alice take no notice of that article lovely girl. The 6 things to avoid is basically my diet for the last 10 years! grin don't stress about things like that, honestly, it's not worth the headache. It will send you loopy I know I'm one to talk but it's not worth it. Enjoy everything in moderation.

ni I've been trying to find a new project but I just haven't had the energy! It's so odd, I'm not used to being so knackered! And headachy so I've not been able to concentrate. One day at a time! I'm excited for Sunday tea at my dps! Steak, ratatouille and baked potato! Yummers!

SuchaJem Sun 17-Apr-16 17:29:51

Ninja and ever which dates do you need for t'bus?

Cycle #5
Quick check of FF tells me I'm cd 31 (I've had a cba with this crap cycle this month and so not actually paid any attention to where I am). AF due tomorrow. Don't feel like she's round the corner, in fact I think I've only just ovulated!

Nil symptoms, apart from sore nips for 2 days and a random bout of nausea that came over me this morning whilst DH and I were driving to take the pugs on a walk around a country park. Sore nips is usual for me after I ovulate though.

To distract me from thinking about the strange nausea episode this morning, I have been been busy making my sister's 18th birthday cake for tomorrow.
She is a big harry potter fan.

My goodness 5star. You're so positive, and I'm sure it'll do TTC over again a world of good!

CD19, 6DPO

Loadsa symptoms this month, but it's not terribly likely as I was away for the day either side of ovulation. Keep thinking it's when you least expect it that it'll happen, which is a bit of a catch 22 hmm Was tempted to test today, how silly is that?!? Must walk away from the pee sticks... And the chocolate bars!! halo
