Wow! What a chatty bunch

I can see a very faint line me9an! Congratulations to you & skee! grin

New bus so I'll repeat my stats...

Name: Purple
Age 29
TTC #2 (DD 28 months)
Cycle 5
CD 21 / 7 dpo

Fx for lots more BFPs!

Writerwannabe83 Fri 07-Oct-16 07:51:34

My stats.
Trying to conceive DC#2
Miscarriage on Cycle 1 and now 7 months of BFNs.

Congratulations Me9an and Skee!!!

My friend was texting me last night about how her period is 3 days late. Her dad her DP aren't actively trying but just not preventing and I felt so, so jealous. I felt sick and angry.

I don't want to feel like this but it hurts that it seems to be happening for everyone else. I've resigned myself to the fact that I don't think it's going to happen for me but I can't stop feeling resentful towards all the pregnant people in my life. It's horrible.

Looks slightly darker/pinker in real life but not getting too excited till I get a darker line.

Congratulations Skee that's an awesome line!!!

PurpleHaze1 Fri 07-Oct-16 08:40:34

Have you got a FRER? I reckon you'd get a decent line on one of them now. So exciting. How many dpo are you?

Writer, totally understand how you feel. It sucks sad

Writerwannabe83 Fri 07-Oct-16 08:44:01

And now I've just learnt that another person I know is also on the verge of testing too. This day is officially shit sad

RoseBud1987 Fri 07-Oct-16 08:49:38

Writer I felt the same when my friend told me she accidentally fell pregnant before I had DD. I got off the phone and cried.

Purple I went to Tesco first thing this morning to get one but they didn't sell frer angry
I've kept my fmu in a pot so am going to grab one in a bit when the chemist opens! Do you reckon it will be okay to test with that, or to go 'fresh' lol. I think I'm about 11 dpo.

MissMagpie Fri 07-Oct-16 09:54:17

Congrats for the BFPs - a good start to the month!

I think I am well and truly in my fertile week. Lots of CM though not sure exact day of ovulation and we have DTD (DTG!) four times so far this week. My DH's colleague said he looked tired yesterday and asked if he was having too much sex! He had better not complain - it won't happen next week!!

Writer I know how you feel. I currently have 6 friends who are all pregnant including a nearly 50yo and my S-in-L who has just given us her good news and her first baby is younger than mine. So basically everyone is pregnant except me. Trying not to let it get to me. It's not that I'm not happy for them - I just want my share of happiness too.

My stats are:
Name: MissMagpie
Age 33 (34 this month)
TTC #2
Cycle 4
AF due around 23rd Oct but could be a few days before or after.

saritah Fri 07-Oct-16 10:40:07

Many congratulations me9an and skee and everyone else who I've missed!

Think I'm out as ovulation was earlier than expected and only managed to DTD the day after. Anyone taking early bookings for the November bus?!

Writer it's awful isn't it – I keep telling myself it's just the frequency illusion, but EVERYONE is getting pregnant! sad Hope your day gets better.

Excited to see some BFPs popping up already!

RoseBud1987 Fri 07-Oct-16 14:27:48

Sarita I already know I'm out this month. Just got to wait for AF in 8/9 days. I shall be joining you on the November bus.

I bought The Impatient Woman's Guide today. Making my way through it now.

Going to give acupuncture a go. I'm at peace with bot ovulating this month and that's ok but really feel that I need to give it my all now as planning to go to GP if we haven't conceived by April.

bairnsangs Fri 07-Oct-16 14:56:42

Today I've had sore boobs, feeling really sluggish, metallic taste in mouth and felt a bit nauseated, didn't really manage to eat anything till nearly lunchtime. I also have a sore throat and have coughed a couple of times...I'm 10 dpo. Too early for symptoms? Also got a sudden onset of thrush - it went from "hmm I feel a bit uncomfy" to "someone please give me a fanny-ectomy RIGHT NOW!" and I had to make a trip to 24 hour Tescos for some Canesten blush

I think I'm either up the duff or have a virus confused Anyone care to place bets?

Congrats to all the bfp's! We were going to wait a month or two after stopping pill but dtd yesterday in fertile week so may as well join in.. Half excited half scared. DH was supposed to buy condoms this month but apparently local shop refused to sell them to him because they 'know he's a good family man & needs to behave himself' blush made me laugh though.. taking it as a sign!

sandsandwiches Fri 07-Oct-16 15:27:55

Def up the duff bairns grin

RoseBud1987 Fri 07-Oct-16 15:36:22

Sand my DD is almost 21 months

purplebella Fri 07-Oct-16 15:46:39

Congratulations to skee and me9an (def a line!)

Such a lovely age isn't it rose she gives the best snoozy cuddles, so funny & is really into babies...Hoping to get upduffed before terrible twos start and I change my mind!

bairnsangs Fri 07-Oct-16 15:51:50

Hey sandsandwiches and hi to fellow bus travellers waves

Haha well we can wait and see what the FRER says in a few days... Totally get what you're saying with the "half excited half scared" comment - I really want to be pregnant but part of my mind rushes off to "but what about my work, what about money, what about childcare, what if, what if, what if???"

I've decided to mostly ignore that part because we can't control what will happen in the future but we know we want to have a baby together and so we'll just have to manage whatever happens. It's a pretty life changing business so no wonder we're all having all the feelings!

Absolute LOL at the local shop's community contraception chat grin it's pretty interfering but also kind of sweet in a way...

RoseBud1987 Fri 07-Oct-16 15:53:50

Sand I love this age. Since 18 months she has become this amazing (sometimes wicked) little girl. FX for you. I'm looking at #2 arriving during the threenager stage! sad

sandsandwiches Fri 07-Oct-16 16:11:35

We live in a small (but not tiny...) village and people are so nosy! DH is a SAHD and shop is constantly dobbing him in about things 'he brought her in with out shoes on yesterday you know' etc They also say nice things to him though so we find it funny (&buy any embarassing stuff online blush)

So yes I totally get what you mean. Was hoping to save more before ttc being main worker but you're right there's never a right time. We didn't catch that quick with DD and lots of friends have had trouble getting preg w no 1&2 so just going to go for it!

MotherofUnicorns Fri 07-Oct-16 16:18:19

Hello again everyone!
Took me a while to find this thread...sorry.
stats are:
TTC #3
Cycle 3 since mirena removal in June.
Age 37
2 DDs 4 & 6

Currently trying to work out if i am going to ovulate - have had a medium dark line on an OPK for 3 days so i will keep doing them twice a day.
Tried to DTG last night but DH was drunk so not very useful!! Will try again tonight.
I think i just need to keep DTG every 3 days so if and when i do ovulate there will be some banked swimmers there!
Great to see so many BFPs, i have a feeling it might be a while for me.....
