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!

hep what a fcuker flowers

Kwick709 Fri 20-May-16 18:22:34

Not sure if I have shared before but BEWARE of any ingredients starting with "cyclo" in beauty products - this nasty can impact fertility and has been banned elsewhere.

Cycle 15 sad

I feel like I've tried everything. Temping, opks, checking cm, vitamins, and lately trying to not try.
No luck at all and feeling like a shrivelled up barren shrew.

Sorry af got you jem

Welcome marmite

Stark I'm so happy for you! Love the pic! I bet you must feel relieved.

Jem I'm so sorry that the witch got you. 5 months isn't that long, but I absolutely know how disheartening it is when AF turns up. Our time will come.

Cycle #6

In midst of 2ww, somewhere between 7-10dpo. Zilch symptoms, not even a hint of tender boobs!

Have just started reading "It starts with the Egg" by Rebecca Fett. Amazing how much bpa is in stuff! Feel like I may as well just replace my entire kitchen lol.

Pugmummy87 Fri 20-May-16 20:26:52

Have you told people now Stark? I remember you saying how it was driving you nuts not saying anything!

Sorry Jem sad

StarkyTheDirewolf Fri 20-May-16 20:43:52

pug was going to tell dsis but Dh wants to be there so we're keeping it shtum for a couple more days now! Told my ndn (she's 36 weeks) and we had a lovely little natter about it so I'm satiated for a little while grin

Aiming to get it on film though when we tell dsis though! Treating myself to a bowl of ice cream!

10+? Or 11+3 dependent on who we believe AF or the gods of science (ultrasound).

Beautiful scan starky hope you can start feeling properly excited now!!

Kwick709 Fri 20-May-16 20:51:33

Lovely picture scan starky smile thank you so much for sharing. Are baby wolves cubs or puppies?

bluebird you are not a barren shrew!!! You still have plenty of time and you will gey lucky real soon.

pug I skipped the chapter on bpa... Probably need to read right? Doing everything else she recommends - well the supplements bit anyway.

starky what is a ndn?

kavanaughkj Fri 20-May-16 20:52:19

Brilliant pic Starky! It's amazing how fast bean develops!!

Moose, we are nearly cycle twins!

TTC #1
Cycle 4 (or 5 if you count trying on the honeymoon) - 10 dpo
Age 37

Was a relaxed TWW as due to illness and missing what I thought was a crucial DTD date I felt I had zero chance and forgot to symptom spot the first week. That stopped when temps went triphasic for the first time this morning, I developed a raging thirst three days ago and am constantly needing to pee (and am knackered today) coupled with greater than usual amounts of creamy CM. I swear, if AF shows up on schedule this month I am going to cut a bitch.

Cycle 7 I think, 12dpo and awaiting af

Lovely pic Starky! 💗

Kathrino Fri 20-May-16 21:21:19

Hurrah for scan pictures! Thank you for sharing starky, it must feel so much more real now!

Also, I'm so glad I'm not the only one who can't quite remember how many cycles they've been trying although it's a bit depressing that there are so many of us in the same boat. Let's hope for a lucky thread (I think I've been saying that for a while...)

Fantastic scan picture Starky!!

Thanks for sharing the pic starky, and for the 'cyclo' info kwick <obsessively checks ALL beauty products in entire house>!

Kwick709 Sat 21-May-16 07:31:31

sky It can be upsetting how many products contain the cyclo thing... When I found out about it I had finally found a hair product that worked well, that contained it, it is also often in deodarants, body creams and serums...I got all the "contaminated" products together and gave them to a work colleague who does not want to have children.
