takingthestairs yes we are needing crap weather (only in the north sea though) round about the 21st smile Although I had a look again at my dates and if I stick at a 29 day cycle, then I might ov on the 20th/21st anyway so could be in with a shot!

Just heard from dh there and am so excited I need to share - definitely on course for baby making this month as his next trip has been cancelled so he will be home for a whole 4 weeks on full pay woohoo!!!
It's a sign for sure smile

AddictedtoCrunchies Thu 06-Sep-12 18:54:23

It is definitely a sign. You need to dooooooooo it (said in the tone of Lord Flashheart)

<moves to the back of the bus and starts up a singalong, Weechops is going to get a BFN, tra la la laaaaaaaa>

AlmondAvocado Thu 06-Sep-12 19:24:09

Hiya!

Can I hop aboard the bus to baby town how cheesy am I??!. I'm still in the WTF cycle post MC. CD40 now and still no sign of AF so no clue on dates. Really hoping October is a more normal month and were in with a chance to DTD grin!

TakingTheStairs Thu 06-Sep-12 23:29:24

addicted silly moo, weechops needs a BFP not N wink

Weechops - HOORAH for your DH being home for the 4 wks <dusts off the Marvin Gaye records>

Almond welcome on board! So sorry to hear about your MC.

TakingTheStairs Thu 06-Sep-12 23:41:01

Since we're on the BFP bus, we should probably have a song to sing.

<ignores tumbleweed that appeared after that suggestion>

I'll start us off (to the tune of My Old Man's a Dustman)

Now here's a little story,
I'll sing without a glitch,
Well you know,that Aunty Flo
She really is a witch

joberg Fri 07-Sep-12 01:28:46

Hi!!! Just checking the bus timetable, so I know where to come, just in case... This is a merry little bus, isn't it?

AddictedtoCrunchies Fri 07-Sep-12 07:21:02

Oh whoops!! My excuse is yesterday was day 1 of AF and I've turned into a complete fuckwit.

She comes when you don't want her
It makes you rather sad
But then you'll get another go
which makes you very glad

(verse was never my strong point..)

TakingTheStairs Fri 07-Sep-12 10:01:55

Hi joberg <waves>
The bus is patiently waiting for it's passengers until Sept 30th and then we'll be on our way, making a stop on each day to check for BFPs , which we all will be getting (positive thoughts!)

DH agrees that this cycle is our not really trying not really avoiding, but we will then have to miss two cycles as he is away with work over my ov times. So taking a relaxed approach...

Never got a bus so early before how many passengers usually get on?

Sorelip Sat 08-Sep-12 18:04:59

Hi all! May I hop aboard? I've just come off of the pill, so I probably won't get a BFP this cycle, but I like the Conception boards.

Hi Everyone,

I was hoping to add my dates but still on the WTF cycle CD44. When will it end <throws fists in air in desperation>.

Ella you will be the first poas...exciting!

I have a good feeling about October!

ella0 Sun 09-Sep-12 19:18:18

If I get the chance; I've always had 28 day cycles, but since ttc, af has arrived slightly early (cd26/7) confused .

Fingers crossed for us all for October.

weechops Mon 10-Sep-12 08:26:32

Cd6 today and I can start using the clearblue opk again. Poas addiction smile got a smiley on day 16 last month so let's see if it's the same this month.

I will be getting off the bus. DH and I went to DTD last night to get some practice in and I had a panic attack at the thought of another pregnancy.

I'll be getting a few more therapy sessions in first. takingthestairs you might recognise me from another thread and i think that was pretty much your suggestions anyway

Wishing everyone a speedy journey to their destination, I'll be at the bus stop in a few months time.

TakingTheStairs Mon 10-Sep-12 13:28:11

Hi SodIt Ah yes, now I know who you are <waves>
I'm really sorry to hear that you had a panic attack. That must have been really frightening. We'll save you a seat on a future bus for when you're ready.
Best of luck with the therapy and take care of yourself xxx

Had to update mine - maths never my strong point..

AlmondFrangipani Tue 11-Sep-12 09:12:11

Morning fellow passengers! Well I'm v excited to say that I got my AF!!!!!! So the WTF cycle is finally over! I can update my stats to say Cycle 3, BFP due 9th Oct.

My FF calendar says 23rd Oct but it's presuming I will have a really long cycle again whereas I'm hoping for one around 30 days! I will start OPKs on CD6 to catch the smile though! grin

Hi, I'm very new here, although been lurking generally for a while. Got married in July, had my coil out last week and AF arrived Sunday. So hoping, for a BFP around 9 October I think?! But no real idea...

Please may I hop onboard?

chookford Tue 11-Sep-12 10:56:54

Hi Ladies.. If I start the first chorus of the Wheels on The Bus may I join too?! Suffered a mmc in July af arrived 08/9 (first one) as I fell pg on the pill I have no idea on cycles etc but will be testing around 08th Oct... may I be added to the list please!!!

TakingTheStairs Tue 11-Sep-12 12:58:36

Hi TakingTheStairs

Thank you for the warm welcome and adding me to the list! Oh good, I am always up for a good sing-song! I will let you choose the next song though! (my main repertoire are unfortunately children songs! I am not mad btw I have a dd who is 3! ) grin

Always up for a sing song too :-) Fx for everyone. It's first time trying with DH, I have DS8 and DD7 (well, she will be on Friday) and he has 2 DS, 8 and turning 10 on Sunday. Moving to a bigger house next month and hoping we will be able to fill the extra bedroom asap!

chookford Tue 11-Sep-12 14:06:28

Hi Waves

Ahh that sounds lovely, you will have your hands full with all those kids running riot!!! Will keep everything crossed that we all get our bfp in Oct, or sooner!

VioletCherry Tue 11-Sep-12 15:18:52

So, with little to think about on the baby front for the next few weeks. In preparation for the 2ww I spent lunch time stocking up on cheap pee sticks. I was also considering buying some OPT but wasn't sure. Any opinions as to whether they are worthwhile or is there a danger of becoming a bit obsessive?

TakingTheStairs Tue 11-Sep-12 15:58:18

I'm using the Clear Blue Ovulation Test Sticks (is that what you mean by OPT violetcherry?). I know it's only my first cycle so some might think it's a bit OTT but if I don't get a BFP in the next few months I'd like to know whether I'm ovulating and when so that at least I have that clear in my mind.

There's so much that I can't control about TTC, so I like to at least to have as much information about what my body is doing.

Fingers crossed for some smiley faces on the sticks this week smile - sorry if that's tmi!

I'm thinking of trying those out... Never had a 28 day cycle pre coil so interested to know what my body is up to and when! Hoping the fact that we are moving house on 9 October will sufficiently distract me as I've never actively tried before, dd was unexpected and ds was a not really not trying kind of situation iykwim. I think since we decided to actively try the days are all getting longer already ...

littlehelp Tue 11-Sep-12 16:31:19

Not sure if I'm on CD23 of cycle 1 or CD1 of Cycle 2 as it's VERY light but can I stand on the bus and sit down if AF happens properly? Don't like being left on the curb wondering what bus to get on sad

chookford Tue 11-Sep-12 17:20:06

I have some opk's sitting in my drawer but am still too chicken to use them! I am trying to take a relaxed approach to ttc as both my babies were conceived on the pill so haven't really tried before and since my mc I have become a bit obsessed with getting pg again and for me poas would make me even worse, and as I don't have a normal cycle (never have!) I wouldn't know when to test anyway really, but if in the next month or so I am not lucky enough to get my bfp I will break out the sticks and pee on them furiously every single day if I have to! I know a lot of women that swear by them though!

TakingTheStairs Tue 11-Sep-12 17:28:59

very light bleed on day 23 of cycle 1....pinklady could it <whispers> be an implantation bleed? Don't worry the bus won't set off until September 30th, so you can hop on and off any time you like smile

Welcome littlehelp!

both conceived on the pill chookford? Did you forget to take some days or was it just not working for you (I'm presuming they were happy accidents ) x

chookford Tue 11-Sep-12 17:48:17

No just didn't work for me Taking, different pill too! Yes both were happy accident unfortunately my second pregnancy ended in a mc at 7 + 4 but I am hopeful next one will have a happy ending! Just typical that I have fallen twicw without trying now I am desperate to fall again I am really scared it is going to be difficult! But for now will remain positive! smile

AlmondFrangipani Tue 11-Sep-12 18:51:29

Taking yes it is still me. Decided Avocado's were too healthy (especially for bus journeys) so opted for cake! Thanks for adding me thanks!

Waves I am similar in that I had the coil out after 10 years (not same one) and don't really know what my 'regular' cycle is. I also got pg on the first cycle complete fluke but now want to know exactly what is going on! I am going to use the Clear Blue OPK's as I didn't like the IC ones! I can then do them at work discretely as there is no peeing in a pot required! Taking how are you getting on with them? Oooo Waves we might be POAS the same day!

Violet I dont consider it as obsessing but 'constructive information gathering' basically I am a control freak. If that makes you happy then go for it!

TuesdayNightClub Tue 11-Sep-12 19:10:15

Hello all

I'm an old face, I used to be on these threads but had to leave as was getting a bit green eyed at the BFPs. I've decided to get back on the thread bandwagon and revel in the shared triumphs of others. Fingers crossed this is a lucky thread!

Yesterday was a year since we started TTC, we are young, fit, healthy and rather shocked at our lack of success! Spoke to our GP who was encouraging, I'll go back to see him shortly now that we are past the year mark.

Its my birthday a few days before AF is due, and I know exactly what I want this year! smile

TuesdayNightClub cycle 13 BFP due October 5th

chookford Tue 11-Sep-12 19:26:13

Hi Tuesday

Hope you have a very Happy Birthday wink

Almond

When do you test with the cb, I don't have a regular cycle either and have no idea when to test unless I do it everyday and re-mortgage to be able to do that!!

33PinkLadyApple Tue 11-Sep-12 20:55:09

<waves, pays full fare and sits down> im defo on the bus sad. Cd1

I think I might head off in my lunchbreak tomorrow to get some cb opks. But will resist using them for about 12 days I think.....in the meantime, I guess it is just a case of practising with DH (amidst packing boxes for house move 4 weeks today)

AlmondFrangipani Tue 11-Sep-12 22:06:38

Chook I start on day 6 then just try as long as possible. I know what you mean about price though!! I got a good deal on eBay but u have to watch it like a hawk! I said the same to my DH and he said the cost for the sticks was nothing in the grand scale of things when u have the cost of a child but we don't have any yet so easy to say! Also only on 3rd cycle of trying so he may say otherwise in 6 months time (fingers crossed BFP before then!)!

chookford Tue 11-Sep-12 22:16:00

Almond

Thanks for that, I am still trying to take a relaxed approached to ttc so am not monitoring anything just dtd as and when we can hopefully it will work soon, but if not then I will start to poas just to give us the best chance! But you are right the cost is nothing if in the end you get your baby, and to be fair once you have one you don't stop spending money on them so it is kind of fitting! grin

TakingTheStairs Wed 12-Sep-12 09:02:01

Hi Tuesday, welcome to the bus. I'm sorry you haven't had much luck so far. We'll all be crossing our fingers for you. Thank goodness you have a lovely GP to help along the way.

Almond I agree, avocados are far too healthy for a bus journey grin
I've only done two days (started day 7) of the CB OPK sticks but they seem easy enough to use. Except for the packaging around the new sticks. Bloody difficult to open first thing in the morning when you're dying for a pee!

waves Might waiting 12 days be too late? Obviously I don't know how long your cycle is, but you should start testing on day 6. Once you get the smiley face you don't have to test any more. It means that you are in the magic 48 hours.

33PinkLadyApple Sorry it didn't work out for you, but welcome (officially) to the bus.

Morning Lexi & Taking

Can I interest either of you in some freshly made Apple Pie?! I have found since ttc, making cakes has been a way to take my mind off things so I have a house full of them! Everyone is welcome to take a piece! Otherwise I will eat them all alone and be a crazy cake eating loony! grin

LexiLoganberry Wed 12-Sep-12 10:52:34

chookford I'd love some apple pie. Do you have custard or ice cream, not that it matter's I like both

TakingTheStairs Wed 12-Sep-12 10:59:55

ooohh Apple Pie, thanks chookford I've been thinking about yummy pies since watching The Great British Bake Off last night. It was so good!

Good call on the custard or ice cream or both Lexi smile

chookford Wed 12-Sep-12 11:33:08

How about Custard flavour Ice-Cream?!

TakingTheStairs Wed 12-Sep-12 13:13:56

oooh yum, it's a deal!

VioletCherry Wed 12-Sep-12 13:22:37

hello all, and welcome newcomers.
Thanks for the feedback, I think I am going to hold off on the ovulation sticks for this month. For me, I think it would just be another thing to rattle around in my TTC brain. I know its early days but seems like once you make the big decision to try a BFP can't come fast enough smile. I am determined not to get consumed with the mechanics and try to enjoy the process. If we don't have any luck in the next couple of months I expect I'll rethink using OPK.
Hope no-one minds but until then my TTC stresses are going to be played out strictly on MN and not in RL!

33PinkLadyApple Wed 12-Sep-12 13:23:56

taking I am going to plump for a 28 day cycle (even though cycle 1 was only 23 days!). Please can you put me down for a BFP on Oct 9th? TVM.

Thanks chook I luuuuuurve apple pie. nom nom nom.

chookford Wed 12-Sep-12 13:54:22

You are welcome 33

Any requests for tomorrows cake? I was thinking chocolate fudge?! I shall make a big pot of brew too and everyone can have a sing-song on the party bus! (I am calling it that as anything that comes with cake and tea is a party in my eyes!)

TakingTheStairs Wed 12-Sep-12 13:57:58

Violet I am the same, I'l be venting all my TTC stresses here. Only one friend and DH (obv!) know that we're TTC so I get all my questions out here!

I'm hoping for a smiley face on the OPK this weekend. Cross your fingers for me everyone!

chookford Wed 12-Sep-12 17:03:30

I have everything crossed for you Taking even my eyes, which makes cooking quite frankly dangerous, but worth the danger for a smiley face!! grin

ella0 Wed 12-Sep-12 17:59:37

Hello again,

I said that I wouldn't use OPKs until we had been trying for 6 mths, but my husband has convinced me to give them a try this month (after a friend of his became pregnant soon after starting to use them).

So I've started using Clear Blue digital sticks from CD6 this month. I know the instructions say you can use them in the morning, but after reading so many stories of them not working as well in the morning, I am using them at around 5pm each day (they're so expensive, I don't want to risk them not working!). I know earlier in the afternoon is ideal, but I'm at work then and really can't do the tests there!

It's torture as I normally drink a lot of water throughout the day. The instructions just state to not drink an excessive amount, but I think that what I normally drink would be considered excessive to most people (I'm always sipping from a water bottle) so I'm just having a tiny sip of water every hr between 1 and 5pm (and obviously not going to the loo during this time).

CD6 seems early to start testing for a 28 cycle; I'm going with it this month as it's the first, but I'll start later next month (maybe CD10). I'm on CD9 now and no smiley yet.

TakingTheStairs Thu 13-Sep-12 09:17:42

Thanks Chookford Mind you don't burn yourself!

Ella0 I didn't know they didn't work well in the morning? I thought that's when the hormones would be highest in the pee?
I've been using them in the morning. Only three days into testing but hoping for a smiley face over this weekend.

AddictedtoCrunchies Thu 13-Sep-12 10:00:36

<ding ding> that's me stopping the bus to get off I'm afraid. I was put on risk of redundancy yesterday and having another baby without the guarantee of my salary is just not an option. So I'm checking out until the new year when I'll know one way or the other. sad sad sad

Good luck to you all and I'll continue to lurk to see all those BFPs.

Hope to see you back soon xx

LexiLoganberry Thu 13-Sep-12 12:16:29

Sorry to hear that Addicted, that's a long while to have that uncertainty.
Hope your back soon.

chookford Fudge cake is my absolute favourite cake, definatly ice cream with this onesmile

chookford Thu 13-Sep-12 13:03:34

Ok Lexi then you can have the first slice Hope you are hungry these slices are humongous!!!! grin anyone fancy a brew?

TakingTheStairs Thu 13-Sep-12 13:36:18

lots of milk and two sugars for me please chookford
And maybe a slice of that cake too?

LexiLoganberry Thu 13-Sep-12 13:58:29

Oh god chookford your making me want want actual cake, since we decided to ttc I've been eating a more healthy diet and a positive effect from that is I've started to lose a little weight.

hint hint nudge nudge, maybe a chocolate and raspberry torte tomorrow(if you take requests)grin

chookford Thu 13-Sep-12 15:20:51

<passes tea and cake to Taking & Lexi> there you go ladies, enjoy! I am trying to give all my cakes and pies I am making away so I am not tempted to eat them all, last thing I need on top of everything else is to put on a stone!! Am trying to keep myself occupied so as not to dwell on things or become addicted to poas which I know will happen once I start!

Hope things work out addicted for all other bus passengers I have quite a few cupcakes to pass around. Dd turns 7 tomorrow and I have made rather a bit too much. Sherry trifle minus the sherry is the next thing on my making list! (if you take a cupcake you have to promise to join me in a happy birthday refrain tomorrow!)

chookford Thu 13-Sep-12 15:49:58

Thank you Waves I will take a cup cake!!

Hi Rocks thank you for the cakes!!

TakingTheStairs Thu 13-Sep-12 16:49:14

I'm going to have to roll off the bus from all the cakes. Ah well <shrugs>, pass them over here please!

Question for those of you using OPKs; does it really matter what time of the day you use them at, as long as you use them at the same time every day?

Welcome on board RockCakesAreYummy
Addicted, I've taken you off the list. Hope that's okay xxxx

Taking the stairs FMU is recommended for pregnancy tests, but not OPKs. I've read in quite a few places that 2pm is the ideal time for OPKs.

Just changing my date.if I never see that bloody(pardon the pun) Aunt Flo again,it would be too soon....

AlmondFrangipani Thu 13-Sep-12 18:43:03

All this cake talk is making me hungry! I am still trying to shift a few post pg pounds hmm. Seems to be happening very slowly but I am not trying that hard either...pass a cupcake!

Saturday will be CD6 so arming myself with OPK's! Have warned DH of the impending shagfest coming. He sounds quite keen luckily wink and suggested we do it every day shock! I dont think I have the stamina for that....! We will see...!

Hello!
May I climb aboard? DP and I now ttc! Am 39 with 1dd (9). Forgive me if I'm not up to speed with the terminology, but hoping for BFP on 7 October (ish)

weechops Thu 13-Sep-12 20:10:00

I don't like cakes, but i do make a mean tray of tablet! Anyone care for some?

Cd9 today and looking forward to getting that smiley face next week! I confess I'm a poas addict so I do them first thing in the morning, then from day 12 round about 2pm too. Dont tell dh though smile

Me and DH are still in the "we've only been married 3 months" romantic (shagfest) phase, and have DTDd every day since (apart from when he had a business trip)......Stupid question, possibly, but does it "dilute" DHs swimmers if we DTD too often? He said I was daft to think that, but I am sure I read somewhere that it is better to not be at it everyday blush If so, I'll definitely get some OPKs so we know which are the best days, but otherwise, I guess we'll just carry on. Never knew TTC could involve so many questions!

Glad the cupcakes are going down well - there are plenty more! The rock cakes are super yummy so I may leave my cupcakes and tuck into another of those - thanks rocks

TakingTheStairs Thu 13-Sep-12 21:34:10

weechops , what is a tray of tablet? (did you mean toffee and I'm being thick? blush )
I think I might follow your lead and do some sneaky 2pm tests too. Oh dear, I can see me getting obsessed with this!

woo hoo almond, OPK ahoy!

wavesandsmiles I don't know about the diluting, but my DH has been having a berocca everyday for the zinc to help the swimmers.

Perdita Welcome to the bus! Hope you brought your appetite, there are plenty of cakes for the journey. <reaches for another cupcake>

weechops Thu 13-Sep-12 22:11:06

Taking no it's not toffee smile it's Scottish and I just assumed you could get it all over the uk oops. It's basically sugar, butter and condensed milk. Boiled and stirred for aaaaagggges it hardens and is so delicious. Bit like harder fudge. It's really really sweet so a little goes a long way smile

chookford Fri 14-Sep-12 08:24:03

oooh Weechops that sounds delicious may I take some?! I have ordered some opks so hopefully they should be here in a few days ... I fear I am going to join you in being addicted to poas but hey ho, at least I am not alone! grin

VioletCherry Fri 14-Sep-12 14:19:16

I used to live in Scotland so obviously a big fan of tablet! yum

Busied myself this lunchtime by buying a refill of folic acid, just a reminder to anyone who has forgotten.

PuppyMummy Fri 14-Sep-12 14:43:50

marking my place if i may? Come from the September thread, CD1 cycle #7 today, not worked my dates out for october yet but I will do at some point.

apart from Af arriving today I had blood tests back including day 21 and they were all normal, which is good.

littlepinkfizz Fri 14-Sep-12 15:24:26

Tablet for me please weechops! Sounds delicious! Now on cd 3 of cycle 3.

Will promise not to worry, stress, symptom spot or get anxious if we don't Dtd around ov time......

Glad I'm not a betting person...but have not succumbed yet to opk, mainly due to price but also think I would just become obsessed with the whole thing which would just make my chances of ttc zero.

Anyone else feel like this?

chookford Fri 14-Sep-12 15:35:23

Yes me Pink I have ordered them but I am still undecided on whether or not to use them, as like you say I know I will become obsessed and will only make ttc more difficult...and as I don't have a regular cycle I don't really know when to test anyway would just be a case of everyday I think! I really really want a bfp soon but I am still hopeful of just being able to take things as they come.. although saying that if in a few months nothing is happening I will be taking matter into my own hands!

Hi Puppy good news re your blood test, fx for that bfp soon!

MadameJ Fri 14-Sep-12 20:56:49

Can I join too, being off the pill for 4 months now and thought I had being lucky this month but oh no AF arrived today sad.

I have no idea about my periods etc anymore since I stopped breastfeeding so all a bit clueless really hmm

sazzababs Sun 16-Sep-12 12:21:14

Hey everyone! waves
I was on the Feb thread as I got our BFP after 6 months of half-assed trying! Was also in the JS thread :D Unfortunately, I was one of the '1 in 3' and had a missed mc shown at the 12 week scan :'( Had an ERPC at beginning of August then my MIL died suddenly. Fair to say August was NOT our month :/ l had AF for a day (!) 4 weeks to the day later, then nowt. SOOOOOOOO, I'm on th WTF cycle and I'll put my date as testing on 13th October smile Nice to 'meet' you all, and here's to October!

sazzababs Sun 16-Sep-12 12:24:26

Spooooo, can someone cut as paste for me? Stoooopid iShan XD
Sazzababs, Cycle 1 after mmc, BFP due 13th October

Marking my place too.

BFP due 15th October, but as I'm off on honeymoon that day I won't be testing unless AF hasn't appeared by the time I get back :-)

Thank god I have very short periods, so shouldn't miss too much honeymoon shagging!!

cd13 today so going all out this week and dtd every day. DH has a bit of a sniffle but hopefully he'll man up and do what needs to be done!

TakingTheStairs Mon 17-Sep-12 09:57:59

Your DH will be worn out weechops! grin

No smiley face for me on the OPK yet. I have no idea what my cycle is like as this is my first one off the pill, but I'm on CD13 too and was hoping for a smiley face around now. I'm going to keep testing until Friday with optimism and if I don't have one by then... well I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

weechops Mon 17-Sep-12 10:40:20

taking I got my smiley on day 16 last month of a 29 day cycle, so thinking it may be the same this month.

BlueSkySoftSand Mon 17-Sep-12 10:49:11

Hello, going to mark my place as thinking AF is on it's way (day late but tested BFN y/day - boo!)

It's my third month of ttc dc3 (dc1 and 2 just happened quite quickly and w/out much thought/stress)

My Oct BFP would be due around the middle of the month (my cycle anywhere between 28 and 31 days).

Cool takingthestairs .i will get some today then start tomorrow. I really hope this is my month smile

33PinkLadyApple Mon 17-Sep-12 14:20:15

I've got some of those Internet cheapy OPK's from friend <who annoyingly now has a gorgeous 8 weeks old boy>. The packet says pee in a pot, put stick in for 5 seconds then lay it flat and check but my friend said she did that until another friend told her the wee should be room temp and not first morning wee...? She got BFP first go after checking with tepid afternoon pee! I'm on CD7 so reckon I should start using? Rather not become obsessed and just shag way to BFP but as I'm only on cycle 2 I want to know if and when I pop an egg. Advise please about wee time, day and temp!!!

littlepinkfizz Mon 17-Sep-12 14:29:56

Yes please, include me in that advice too ladies! Thanks 33pink

littlepinkfizz Mon 17-Sep-12 14:31:11

Tepid afternoon pee anyone?! With or without stick to accompany?!!

33PinkLadyApple Mon 17-Sep-12 14:32:47

ha ha clueless pink people aren't we! grin

TakingTheStairs Mon 17-Sep-12 15:04:23

hi!!

As far as I know, different tests require different circumstances.

With the Clear Blue digital you are told to pee directly on the stick or into a cup and dip the stick in. No where does it say to let the pee be tepid. It does say to test at the same time every day.

I have read that other tests suggest testing in the afternoon but I think that is more for the non-digital tests.

I think the best thing to do it to follow the instructions that come with the sticks that you have.
The manufacturers of the sticks want you to have the most accurate readings that you could possibly have and therefore their instructions will be tailored to those particular tests.

As for waiting for the pee to be tepid.. to me, that sounds like rubbish. The hormones will be in your pee whether it's hot, warm or chilled!!

MrsTwinks Mon 17-Sep-12 15:33:58

can I pop a foot on? first cycle after a miscarriage at 8 weeks, OPK gave me a smiley yesterday so guess I'm back on the buses, AF due on October 2nd. Kinda want but don't want a BFP cos I'd just be worrying again, do you think I can go to sleep and nap through to 12 weeks?

TakingTheStairs Mon 17-Sep-12 17:01:04

Welcome MrsTwinks So sorry to hear about your miscarriage. Fingers crossed everything goes well for you this time.
Unfortunately we don't have the ability to send you to sleep until you reach 12 weeks, but between us we have enough sugary goodies to send you into a diabetic coma instead. Will that do grin

I've just had my first smile on CD14. I was worried I wasn't going to get one (first month using OPKs), so I feel more relaxed now.

TakingTheStairs Tue 18-Sep-12 07:56:34

Ella0 that's great news! lucky you.
Still no smiley face for me. Still hopeful though.

chookford Tue 18-Sep-12 08:52:25

Morning ladies

Think I have been having some ovulation pains but not entirely sure( I am trying really hard not to start poas as I know it will make me more stressed and probably hinder my chances!) so to take my mind off of it and try to relax I have made some bread! (tyring to move away from the cakes! my waistline is feeling it!) am putting on a pot of coffee... anyone like a cup?!

I would LOVE a cup of coffee - many thanks :-) I decided not to try the OPKs this month, so trying not to stress either. DD and DSS both had birthdays at the weekend, so I am avoiding cakes too. DH and I are really hoping we get a BFP within 3 months, as otherwise we could end up with a very expensive September each year....

chookford Tue 18-Sep-12 10:00:21

Ahh hope the birthday celebrations went well Waves Yes me and hubby were saying that we have our DD in June and my DSD in July so if I am lucky enough to fall soon we will have another birthday in between those two.. expensive but if I get to have another bubba I really dont care! grin fx we all get our bfp soon!

weechops Tue 18-Sep-12 13:48:40

cd14 and still no smiley. Got one cd16 last month, but just found out dh has to leave for work tomorrow and won't be back til next friday sob sad
<less optimistic chops slinks to back of bus with wine>

chookford Tue 18-Sep-12 14:08:15

Oh no Weechops sorry to hear that... I shall make some Irish Coffee's, heavy on the "Irish"! Hopefully you may be lucky and maybe tomorrow will be your day.. anychance of jumping on hubby before he leaves?!

TakingTheStairs Tue 18-Sep-12 14:33:43

oh no weechops that sucks sad
Keep going for as long as you can, you never know what could work!

I'm in the same boat, DH is going away on Sunday and no smiley for me yet sad

chookford Tue 18-Sep-12 14:37:43

here you go Taking < passes a rather large glass of Irish Coffee> fx that you get your smiley before he goes away... god this ttc lark is hard work isnt it! confused

TakingTheStairs Tue 18-Sep-12 14:54:01

<slurps noisily> Thanks chookford I needed that
It really is hard work!

Now for a quick walk around the block before I murder one of my work colleagues.
Back in a bit.

chookford Tue 18-Sep-12 17:31:27

lol Taking don't murder anyone, or that would really mess up ttc!!! Just glue their hands to their keyboard or something.. that would be amusing! ( assuming you work in an office... otherwise it just wouldn't work!) grin

ella0 Tue 18-Sep-12 17:53:57

chookford I would love a cup of coffee as I'm not allowing myself any in real life - thanks! I was an absolute coffee addict; surprisingly I'm not missing it as much as I thought I would.

Takingthestairs and weechops as long as you DTD a day or two before you get a smiley you'll probably still be ok (as sperm can live for up to 5 days (so they say).

I've never noticed ovulation pain before, but I think I may have experienced it today (not a pain as such, but an unusual pressure low down on one side). I think I probably feel it every month but have never twigged that that's what it is. I'm so much more aware of every twitch since ttc.

TakingTheStairs Tue 18-Sep-12 22:00:07

Fingers crossed for your twinges Ella. I'm an emotional mess today (see earlier anger with colleagues as proof) so I'm hoping that's pointing in the right direction too.

As for the suggestion of superglue and keyboards... I like it!

chookford Wed 19-Sep-12 08:48:21

Hi Ella I can make you a de-caf if that is any good?! fx that it is ovulation and pretty soon you may get a bfp!

Taking I have many suggestions along those lines! ( I have worked with some pretty big arseholes in my time!!) grin

TakingTheStairs Wed 19-Sep-12 10:35:26

Thanks chookford all suggestions welcome.
Though in fairness they're not a bad lot. I arrived into work this morning to a very nice bottle of champagne on my desk and a card from the two most senior bosses thanking me for doing a great job with the organisation of a work event recently and saying that it was the best one they've ever had.
I was pretty chuffed grin

At least I can enjoy it this weekend!

33PinkLadyApple Wed 19-Sep-12 12:31:27

aah that's nice taking

I did an OPK this morning and got a faint line. I'm on CD9. Never used them before. Does this mean I'm due an egg soon or should the line be solid before I get too excited?

JellyCurls Wed 19-Sep-12 12:37:31

Hey ladies - room for one more? I am on a weird cycle after a chemical pregnancy in August. Not sure when to start counting from but hopefuly due a BFP first week in October unless cramping pains today is AF making a nasty sneak appearance

chookford Wed 19-Sep-12 12:43:45

Morning Jelly, fx you get that bfp soon <threatens af with a broom to stay away!!>

33 I read that the line has to be as strong as the control line for it to be a + but I am not 100% sure, I think some of the IC work differently though so dont take my word for it!

chookford Wed 19-Sep-12 12:44:09

Afternoon even... where has the day gone!!!

littlepinkfizz Wed 19-Sep-12 14:27:41

33 I know the cb ones say the other line should be stronger than the control but just read the instructions thoroughly just to be sure. Fx x

TakingTheStairs Wed 19-Sep-12 14:53:55

Jelly - welcome to the bus!! I've added you to the list.

33 Oooh fingers crossed for you. I use the digital ones (smiley face) so I'm not sure.
On a side note, popped into Boots yesterday, bought a pack of 20 CB digital (think I'm going to need them, no smiley face yet this month) and some of this www.conceiveplus.com and it came to £55!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TakingTheStairs Wed 19-Sep-12 15:42:02

weechops that is BRILLIANT news

I'm so so delighted for you. fingers crossed!!

Woo hoo Weechops that is great news fx you get your bfp soon!!

Fantastic weechops Go swimmers,go! X

33PinkLadyApple Wed 19-Sep-12 17:13:03

Congrats on the smile weechops
This is a positive afternoon, I have just been promoted! Been pushing for it for about a year now and they have finally realised I actually do the job of my boss without the salary to match. They have given me a 10% pay rise now and a further 10% in 4 months (as long as I meet my objectives, yada yada yada)! Am soooo pleased as the more I'm on when I go on maternity, the better! Now thinking if it happens this month (fx) I shouldn't say anything until I get my next 10%...

33PinkLadyApple Wed 19-Sep-12 17:14:41

although can't see me meeting my objectives with excited, distracted baby brain

Hooray for the smiley face weechops and HUGE congrats to you 33 on the promotion!! I'll be trying the OPKs next month if nothing happens this time - feeling a bit doubtful as it is so recent that my coil was removed....

JellyCurls Wed 19-Sep-12 18:03:32

Lots of talk of OPK's but does anybody use a fertility microscope? I am" ferning" which I think means its the right time but can I find the instructions?

Double congrats to 33 and weechops x

ella0 Wed 19-Sep-12 18:03:50

chookford thanks. I haven't tried de-caf (read too much about how that's not great for you either due to other nasties it contains) but I'm willing to give it a try (you wouldn't eat or drink anything if you believed everything you read!).

Takingthestairs Boots is so expensive for Clear Blue digital ovulation sticks! I got my pack of 20 for £32.99 in Sainsbury's (normal price!). My husband is taking Wellman Conception and they're so much more expensive for those too.

weechops yay for the smiley!

I'm really trying to relax now. I get really stressed in work and I hope it doesn't affect my chances.

ella0 Wed 19-Sep-12 18:05:03

33 congratulations! (missed the last page of posts!)

weechops Wed 19-Sep-12 20:29:35

33 congratulations that's great!

chookford Wed 19-Sep-12 21:44:44

Congrats 33 that is great news! Have a cheeky glass of wine to celebrate!! As pretty soon you won't be able too <sending positive vibes, good things are happening so some bfp's soon me thinks>

AlmondFrangipani Wed 19-Sep-12 21:46:52

Hi Girls,

33 congrats on the promotion! I sort of got a promotion this week too. I feel slightly in 2 minds about it as it is going to be a lot more work and I was kind of hoping to take my foot off the gas when I got pg....we will see!

I am on CD10 and using OPKs consistently for the first time (dabbled a bit after mc). I was doing them in the afternoon but the control line (using CB ones) is faint and I wondered if I am drinking too much? I was going to switch to doing them first thing. Do you think this is ok?? Dont want to miss the +! I also got some Conceive Plus. Seems fine, not really sure how much it helps but willing to try everything!!

Yes Weechops to the grin! Fingers crossed!!

Hi ladies, I haven't been on here in ages as I've had a very hectic time at work. How's everyone getting on?

I had very clear OV signs yesterday (CD 22) so looks like it will be another long cycle for me (this is my second cycle since AF came back following childbirth, and I'm still BFing DS - 15 months). But at least I know what's going on now, and we DTD loads at the right time, so we have a good shot this month. So now I start the dreaded 2ww.

I've updated my info below as I now have a better idea when AF is due.

Late to the party (as usual)

CD1 was the 6/7th Sept - AF or BFP due Oct 1st/2nd

DTD CD9, CD11, CD12

Missed CD13 due to opting to EOD but then missed CD14 as I had my head down the toilet with sickness bug envy, DH is working late tonight and won't be home until toddler invariably wakes up so no DTD tonight CD15 and so tomorrow CD16 will probably be too late.

Although I did OV later in my cycle last month - +OPK at CD15 and CD16

Hi ladies <waves>
You dropped of my on list so just getting you back so I can catch up before I join the october bus proper when the connecting bus cd1 arrives.

Hi ladies going to optimistically jump on your bus if that's ok? Im in wtf cycle 2 post-mc, my last af was really, really light so I wasnt even sure it had def arrived but Dr Google seems to think yes so i guess im in a nice shiny new cycle. Anyway even tho this is still a completely wtf???? cycle im hoping for a bfp around 14th Oct and im ttc no. 2.

Roughly CD10 for me today - tea & folic acid anyone??

Fx for you, Little Miss.

shineypeacock Fri 21-Sep-12 10:42:38

Ladies, i need some advice, whats the consensus about drinking during the 2ww?

My dilema is that i have a friends 40th next friday and it is at a pub so will be able to get away with lime and soda - minus the voddy, but a few of us are meeting for pre drinks at hers so am expecting wine, fizz etc! Cant get away with anti biotics, feeling unwell or anything like that as they will suspect i might be pg!

Also if im not pg, i will have not had a drink on a night when i really feel i should celebrate, friend has had a very tough year!

What to do - AF is due 3rd Oct - so probably too early to test that morning anyway and if I do test and it is positive, dont want people to know this early!!

Thanks for the advice xx

Just drink in moderation, you'll be fine. :-)

blargl Fri 21-Sep-12 16:20:43

Hi ladies, can I join in too? Just migrated from September thread. Cycle 2, bfp due 24 October. Hopefully it'll be lots of bfps next month!

chookford Fri 21-Sep-12 16:36:29

Shiney I am with Knickerbocker as long as you don't go mad you will be fine! I spent the first 3 weeks of my pg drinking (I didn't find out until I was 8 weeks gone) and luckily dd is fine!! Although she does have a taste for red wine at 3 so maybe that was my fault! oops!

Hi all the new ladies

Fingers crossed we all get our bfp this month! grin

TakingTheStairs Sat 22-Sep-12 09:24:40

Smiley face on opk! Whoop!! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Can I join? Just trying to clamp down on bitter disappointment following arrival of late AF yesterday when I was so sure I was pg. So wanted the gap between dd (3) and next baby (if there is one given how low I'm currently feeling!) to not be too huge. Mc'd cycle 3 and 6.

Cycle 10, BFP due 27 Oct (hope, hope, hope!)

TakingTheStairs Sat 22-Sep-12 09:41:31

Hi MrsAFlowerpot welcome to the bus

I'm so sorry about your miscarriages, lots of positive energy on this bus so we're all hopeful you'll get your BFP this month.
X

littlepinkfizz Sat 22-Sep-12 09:57:14

Cd 9 today. Only faint line on the opk but wil be Dtd anyway I hope! Fx for all us travellers! x

Only 8 days left in September now! Fx for everyone as we approach October.... Quite amazed that DH and I have been managing to DTD at all given we are moving house on 9 October. (Although we are WAY behind on the packing)

Packing-schmaking. DTD all the way!

weechops Sat 22-Sep-12 12:05:46

Oooh taking grab that man! Fx

TakingTheStairs Sat 22-Sep-12 12:18:35

Thanks weechops!! He's away for work from Monday am too, so like you I was very glad of the timely smiley face.

Oh and I saw a packet of Tablet in waitrose during the week and thought of you.. In my head I immediately thought "ah that's what weechops meant".

And I second MrsAFlowerpot, put those boxes down smilesandwaves and concentrate on more important things!

Question for the wise ones - I'm on cd18 and got my opk smiley face today (as I announced to the world earlier on this thread! blush ). It's cycle 1 after coming off the pill so I don't know what my cycle length is. When should I be poas? Two weeks from now? Based on a 28 day cycle I would have poas on Oct 2nd but I've ovulated later than I would thought I would, so do I move my hopeful BFP date?
Does that even make sense!?

JellyCurls Sat 22-Sep-12 12:26:36

Afternoon TAKING, no expert but i remember reading once that your luteal phase averages 10 to 14 days so prob not POAS before two weeks, if you have good will power. Fx for your BFP in October x

TakingTheStairs Sat 22-Sep-12 12:37:20

Thanks jellycurls. I'll try my best to wait two weeks then. Waaahh exciting!

JellyCurls Sat 22-Sep-12 13:07:02

I am 3 days into my wait and am trying so hard not to imagine symptoms. Excited and nervous after last months disapointment

Hi mrsaflowerpot - feeling a bit the same as you, ds is 2 and i had mmc followedby erpc at the end of july. Everyone at the mum&toddler groups and a couple of friends are pg with no.2. I think i just sort of got on with things in August but I'm finding this month quite tough...fx for us in October!!

Because of weird wtf cyclw.not really sure what CD im on but dtd eod and more if we can manage it this cycle and we're doing well so far!!

littlepinkfizz Sat 22-Sep-12 14:57:06

taking I think AF comes 14 after you ovulate so prob best to wait til then...then again it's hard to resist poas! Fx

TakingTheStairs Sat 22-Sep-12 15:27:13

Thanks littlepink and good luck jellycurls , fingers crossed for you

weechops Sat 22-Sep-12 19:04:27

taking I had my fingers crossed for you that you would get that smiley before your dh went to work. It's rotten when you really need them at home and they're not! Reeeaaaaalllllyyyy want it to be our month!

Little, horrible isn't it?! People keep telling me I must make sure dd isn't an only (complicated back story but my DM passed away when we were teens so having siblings was important). Might throw something at next person who suggests I hurry along!

Hi everyone

I think I've been on other threads with someone of you but basically I am ttc our first child. I fell pg earlier in the year but mc at about 8/9 weeks in July. I feel pg again this month but mc again yesterday. I knew something wasn't right this time. I kept testing around when af was due but kept getting BFNs. I started spotting and thought it was af but it never developing into af so I tested again and got a BFP but the lines never got particularly dark and I didn't really have any symptoms, unlike last time. I am really upset to have had two mcs and frightened that it means that I'll have more.

I am going to take yesterday as CD1 and I'd bought some conceive plus which I'm going to try this month as well.

Hopefully it'll be third time lucky!

blargl Sun 23-Sep-12 17:22:09

Hi everyone, I've migrated over from the September thread. I'm on cd1 of cycle 2. A little tip if you guys didn't know - you can get frer tests on 3 for 2 in boots, and the boots I was in this afternoon had the three packs of them, so you could get 9 for £10 or so (for any fellow poas addicts!)

ella0 Sun 23-Sep-12 17:38:29

So sorry woody.

Thanks for that info blargl.

weechops Sun 23-Sep-12 18:57:02

oh woody i'm really sorry

blargl guess where I'm going tomorrow! smile

JellyCurls Sun 23-Sep-12 20:28:57

Sorry to hear that WOODY. I am on cycle one following an early loss and it sure sucks. Fingers crossed you get a sticky bean soon, hugs x

PurpleGeekyGirl Sun 23-Sep-12 21:18:51

<waves> just booking my place for Tuesday... had thought that Sept was a successful cycle but appears not as massive AF cramps and BFNs following very very very faint line last week. I need you guys to keep me from SS too much this cycle. I swore I wouldn't obsess but, well, yeah.... that!

Am on cd27 atm, but fully expecting the witch to arrive at any moment as my AF cramps are awful now I remember why I took the pill for so long, owwwwwww

TakingTheStairs Mon 24-Sep-12 09:15:23

woody So sorry to hear of your loss. Fingers crossed for third time lucky for you.
blargl welcome to the bus and thanks for the tip about Boots.
Hi PurpleGeekyGirl, welcome to the bus. We'll try our best to stop you Symptom Spotting, but I can't promise anything. I've added you to the bottom of the list for now until you have dates.

I've also updated my dates. I'm now in the 2 week wait with weechops, fingers crossed for everyone going through the wait!
Oh and I brought some Victoria Sponge for today's journey. Would anyone like a slice?

Hi blargl & Purple and anyone else I may have misssed apologies!

ooooo taking & weechops soo exciting, so hoping we get our first Oct bfp soon! And I would love a slice of cake please... I am making a brew shout if you want one!

TakingTheStairs Mon 24-Sep-12 10:03:27

Ooh chookford, I'll have a brew please. Two sugars & lots of milk if you don't mind. I'm forcing back a cup of green tea at the moment, so I wouldn't mind a real cuppa.

chookford Mon 24-Sep-12 10:06:09

grin those tea's arent the nicest are they! ok one brew coming right up, I have also opened a packet of garibaldi's too! (bad night with dd, she is not well so am trying to keep my eyes open with the help of tea and biscuits!) anyone for a biccie?

A garibaldi and a cuppa sounds perfect to me. Thanks chookford

littlepinkfizz Mon 24-Sep-12 10:14:41

Ohhh, Victoria sponge for me please! Not sure what ECM is for me but this morning cm has be more plentiful than usual so hoping that's a good sign and to Dtd a couple of times in next few days .

Fx for all those on the 2ww x

littlehelp Mon 24-Sep-12 11:01:43

How soon is everyone testing?

I dont think i can wait till the 1st lol

Boobs are so sore and leaking too lol

weechops Mon 24-Sep-12 11:24:01

I am full of the cold today and feeling sorry for myself so pass the biscuits over here please. Custard creams if you have any?

Kids are off school today for september weekend so as we were all up early anyway I thought we'd have a wee cooked breakfast at asda before i got some shopping.

Dear god, if this wasn't the day that weechops2 decides to have his first major tantrum! Weechops 1 sitting perfectly eating her breakfast while I drag kicking screaming snotty little boy outside the cafe twice in 20 minutes for a timeout! I thought we might be bypassing terrible 2s with him - obviously not!

On a happier note, I discovered a clearblue digital sitting at the back of the medicine cabinet that I bought months ago smile

JellyCurls Mon 24-Sep-12 11:33:11

Pass on the cake but a cuppa would be lovely. Visited boots this morning but held back on the three for two preg test offer. Positive thoughts this month will keep me from symptom spotting and i will only POAS after AF due. Well thats the plan for now. 5 days into tww only 9 more to go.......

PurpleGeekyGirl Mon 24-Sep-12 11:34:45

Thanks for the hellos smile. I'll update myself on the list once AF arrives properly and I can work out what my BFP date should be (it will be 29 days from now tho so end of the month...)

littlepinkfizz Mon 24-Sep-12 11:41:16

Leaky boobs littlehelp?! Better than a BFP I'd say! Fx [ smile]

chookford Mon 24-Sep-12 11:42:18

Here you go Waves <passes plate of biscuits and a brew

Pinkfizz and littlehelp all the signs sounds promising for both ovulation and a bfp!! fx it will be the first one for Oct!

Weechops ahh the first one is always a hum dinger! Think my dd 1st tantrum lasted about 3 weeks!! but hooray for the sneaky cb test!!

chookford Mon 24-Sep-12 11:44:24

Hi Jelly and Purple <passes a brew> fx we all get those + oon!!!

chookford Mon 24-Sep-12 11:44:53

soon even! grin

littlehelp Mon 24-Sep-12 11:59:26

Is first reponse the best for early detection you think?

FrustratedSycamorePants Mon 24-Sep-12 12:03:13

littlehelp first responce early responce rather than first respone easy test.
Good luck.

littlehelp Mon 24-Sep-12 12:06:24

Frustrated, thank you might bob to boots later (smile)

chookford Mon 24-Sep-12 12:24:41

Hi hellomist welcome to the bus!

woody17 Mon 24-Sep-12 13:23:26

Hope you get a BFP littlehelp

Sorry to hear that purplegeekygirl - hope you are feeling ok

Hello hellomist

Well, I went to dr's today for second blood test (had one on Friday as well) to check hcg levels. Know I've mc now so hoping today's test will be back to 0.

Have made an appointment to talk to dr as to whether there's anything I can do to try and make next one stick.

Hope everyone is ok. Seems like autumn has definitely arrived where I am.

TakingTheStairs Mon 24-Sep-12 13:30:58

woody, I'm so sorry, you've had such a tough time by the sounds of it sad
Fx the doc can help you

LexiLoganberry Mon 24-Sep-12 13:34:55

Got excited last night as EWCM appeared and just did my internet cheapie OPK and got a line which is darker than the control line, so off I went to do a CB OPK with the same urine sample and I got a smiley face, I'm so bloody excited, had a wtf cycle 1 last month of 35 days, before I had my marina coil fitted I had a constant 28 day cycle so last cycle was a shock, so pleased it's returned to normal. I'm on cycle day 13.

Text my DH and told him he was going to have to impregnate me, said he'll consider my request

chookford Mon 24-Sep-12 13:35:16

Woody hope you are doing ok? really sucks doesnt it.. life it a bastard sometimes. Hope it wont be too long until you are back on the ttc bus and this time is 3rd time lucky... maybe the Dr will suggest baby aspirin I know a few ladies who have gone on to have successful pg after this, just hope they give you some suggestions! Yes Autumn is def here too... it has been raining heavily since 8 this morning here, and it is really cold... so depressing!

LexiLoganberry Mon 24-Sep-12 13:36:54

I'm sorry to hear that woody

chookford Mon 24-Sep-12 13:36:57

Woooohoooo Lexi fx tonight is the night!

woody17 Mon 24-Sep-12 13:44:38

I actually feel ok. I think it's helped that I just knew there wasn't something right this time. I actually think that the hcg level from the test on Friday will be really low - in a way, I think it was over before it really got going if that makes sense. I do really hope it is third time lucky. I think that I am going to try taking baby aspirin next time - I'm going to mention it to dr tomorrow and see what they say.

FX lexi - glad you got your smiley!

LexiLoganberry Mon 24-Sep-12 13:46:42

chookfordJust noticed that your bfp is due the day before mine and that there are 3 other bfp's due on the 9th.

LexiLoganberry Mon 24-Sep-12 13:48:10

Thanks woody

Sorry if this is a stupid question, what is baby asprin?

woody17 Mon 24-Sep-12 13:59:38

lexi there are some women on here who have had several mcs and have been advised to take baby aspirin when they get their next BFP. I think it's a smaller dose than you would get in normal aspirin? I think it has something to do with thinning the blood and can possibly prevent clots . But I would only take it if my GP said it's ok.

chookford Mon 24-Sep-12 14:14:07

yes I am due to test on the 8th Lexi but to be honest I am not hopeful me and dh havent been dtd that much really had a few ups and downs the last couple of weeks but still it only takes once, so fx! baby aspirin is 75mg which is a lower than normal dose so it soesnt affect the baby in anyway but if you have sticky blood (a condition that affects the placenta from working properly) it can help to have a sucessful pg.. a friend of mine had 4 m/c after a healthy ds and was diagnosed with sticky blood, a month after taking it she got her bfp and had a full term healthy little girl so it can work, but as Woody says your doctor needs to agree to it as some other conditions can be made alot worse by thinning the blood.

littlepinkfizz Mon 24-Sep-12 14:31:40

That's great lexi get busy! I'm on day 11 , dark line but more cm so I'm guessing Dtd in next few days would be good!

Thanks for the cakey taking... yummy

littlepinkfizz Mon 24-Sep-12 14:33:17

Meant NO dark line....

LexiLoganberry Mon 24-Sep-12 14:43:12

Thanks for the explaination woody and chookford.

On a completely different subject. I've got a knee injury and have spoken to the dr about it because I need anti inflammatories (sorry spelling terrible at times) and he has told me to keep using them as it would be doing potential harm to a baby if I was in pain, that it would pass to baby and baby would be disstressed. Not sure I've explained that very well, hope you see what I'm trying to say.

TakingTheStairs Mon 24-Sep-12 14:47:09

YIKES,
I was just chatting to one of my bosses (the COO) and she laughingly said that my other boss (the CIO) had asked if I was expecting!!!
I always laugh with the COO about how my Mum puts pressure on me to have a baby, so she said to him no way was I expecting. And he said good, we need her too much.
Nice that he needs me.. yikes that he's watching!
No more buggy googling in work!!

TakingTheStairs Mon 24-Sep-12 15:39:18

okay, slight paranoia. I joked and asked if he thought I was looking heavier and the COO said "god no, it was when we were sorting out the health insurance".. so phew!

stickybeans Mon 24-Sep-12 15:51:28

Hey everybody left me behind. I'm stuck in limbo waiting for af. My cycles are sooo long its terrible. Can i ride along too? I'll even stand if there aren't any seats.....

Oh thank you Taking and Chookford <stuffs biscuit in mouth while reaching for a piece of cake> This is going to be my third cycle since mc. Got a bfn this morning. Af due the 30th so maybe Oct will be our month. BFPville here we come!!!!

Hi ladies, anyone else symptom spotting yet? Only 5 dpo and this is already starting to do my head in...

ella0 Mon 24-Sep-12 18:02:56

I'm symptom spotting already - I'm 6dpo. I had weird cramp type feelings really low down a couple of days ago. Not painful in the slightest (so not really cramp), just unusual feelings. Yesterday I could feel gas 'bubbling' really low down (hard to explain, but kind of like a rumbling stomach but much lower down).

Every month I have something different though and it never leads to a BFP: Month 1 - 'implantation bleed' (I had never spotted before)
Month 2 - sore boobs (I had never had sore boobs before)

So I don't think they're anything. I'm staying positive though as we've done everything we could this month.

little sounds good for you - fingers crossed.

JellyCurls Mon 24-Sep-12 18:50:45

Despite my earlier post i am symptom spotting. I am about 5 dpo and so far i have got crampy pains and my pulse has gone from a resting 70 bpm to a resting 88bpm. Not sure why never bother with pulse before but had a medical last week so thats how i know. Is this even a symptom?

littlepinkfizz Mon 24-Sep-12 20:20:52

littlepinkfizz thanks, I love curly wurlys.

blargl I thought that price sounded too good to be true! It's still good though. I haven't tested while ttc so far; AF has arrived a couple of days early every month so far.

littlehelp how many dpo are you?

PurpleGeekyGirl Tue 25-Sep-12 06:40:07

Af arrived at 5am, deep joy. Nothing like fumbling round in the dark for a pad and period knickers to ensure you fall asleep again is there yaaaaaaaaaaaaawn. Still, I haz ticket for oct now and my child free lazy twat of an ex actually seeing his child for 48 hours per month weekend should coincide with ov grin. How's everyone else this fine morn?

At least he will be a lazy, but relatively useful, twat this cycle Purple! :-/

I'm celebrating the fact my trapped nerve in my back appears to be improving. Already booked a shag for later :-)

PurpleGeekyGirl Tue 25-Sep-12 07:14:11

Ha indeed nic and after I made him have a vasectomy when we were together too evil cackle good news on your nerve enjoy your shag

That's quite funny, Purple...at least he can't be a lazy twat for anyone else. Service to society, I reckon! :-)

chookford Tue 25-Sep-12 08:42:29

Any more Curly Wurly's on the go?! damn I love a Curly Wurly!! Littlehelp have you tested yet?! Its so exciting.... come on the BFP!!!!

chookford Tue 25-Sep-12 08:43:46

Purple you are an inspiration to us all, if only more women did that to useless men... worls would be a better place! grin

PurpleGeekyGirl Tue 25-Sep-12 08:55:44

lol chook not sure he'd agree. I think his actual words (2 years after we split) were "if you have a child with someone else I'm not sure how I will feel given you MADE ME DO THIS". issues much I think it says it all when I say my lovely BF is more of a dad to my child than his biological 'father' has been in his whole life sigh

passes out curlywurlys and opens a mega bag of jelly tots. Mmmm jelly tots

chookford Tue 25-Sep-12 09:05:56

Oh god jelly tots & tooty fruities are my absolute favs!

Yeah it is so annoying when biological parents just cant take the responsibility isnt it.. I have a 7yr old step-daughter who I have helped raise with my dh since she was 18months, she does see her mother but tbh she is useless very selfish woman who struggles to put her childs needs before her own! makes me so cross when people like that just have kids without much thought, and then all these lovely people who would shower them with love struggle! grrrrrr
<whispers to self it is too early to be getting angry, have some jelly tots and be quiet!!>

PurpleGeekyGirl Tue 25-Sep-12 09:22:08

opens more jelly tots, I like how they make my mouth fizz

OMG, that's my ex-dh too... Pathologically i-n-c-a-p-a-b-l-e of putting someone else before himself. And no it's not too early to get angry but it's not good either <passes out chill pills too>. Karma. That's my mantra!

littlehelp Tue 25-Sep-12 09:27:34

chookford Tested bfn, too early i think (i hope) lol

Ella not got a clue how many days to be honest trying not to think about it too much,
Had spotting last thurs/fri so prob best to test again then not due till 1st anyway

The suspense! this week is going to be loooonnnngggg

chookford Tue 25-Sep-12 09:29:26

ooohh chill pills, good call!!

Yeah what goes around comes around, she does me me laugh though she is now talking about wanting more kids with her bf... cant look after the one she has let alone more! should be sterilised in my opinion!

Right time for a brew anyone else?

chookford Tue 25-Sep-12 09:30:26

OOOO Little yes hopefully just a shy one, will hopefully have a bfp by next week!!! fx!

woody17 Tue 25-Sep-12 10:08:42

I love jelly tots - can't remember the last time I had some but I've got a real craving now!

little hopefully it's just too early and you'll get your BFP soon.

TakingTheStairs Tue 25-Sep-12 10:26:47

You guys have me craving jelly tots now smile

littlehelp Fx for next wk, I'm sure the BFN was just because you were testing so early.

Grrrs at the pathologically incapable fathers..... My 2 haven't seen their real dad for aproaching 4 years, and we haven't had maintenance for a long time before that. We don't even know where he lives. Fortunately, DH adores them, and treats them as his own, as do the rest of his family.

I feel utterly pants today - threw up this morning (several times) and am not enjoying my brew . There is a stomach bug doing the rounds, so i think it must be that. Although DH kept giving me "knowing winks" as I threw up into the toilet. Lovely. Far too soon to test - I had my coil out 6 September (never had a single visit from AF the whole time that was in), and kind of had AF on the 9th (but it only lasted a day), so I was thinking 9 October would be the very earliest I can test. (That is also the day we are actually moving house!)

littlepinkfizz Tue 25-Sep-12 11:16:31

little probably too soon as the others (while busy scoffing their jelly tots) have said. Fx for testing next week!

Cd 12 toady but still only a faint line. However, romance out the window and we are planning to DTD tonight. Que sera ,sera! (breaks into song a la Vera Lynn!)

grin at purple and her pathetic ex!

Good morning to everyone and their jelly tots..

littlepinkfizz Tue 25-Sep-12 11:21:53

Oh getting little crampy pains on and off today .

Could that be me getting ready to ovulate?

Please, please, please...

VioletCherry Tue 25-Sep-12 11:27:28

Sorry, MIA for the last few days!
I think we are just about pass our conception window this month, lots of DTD so hoping for a good result soon.
I was feeling quite bloated and crampy for a few hours last friday evening CD19 (31day cycle) and have now come to the conclusion that this was probably ovulation cramps. Does anyone else experience these?
I paid little attention to them at the time as I didn't realise that they might be anything to do with my cycle. I just started keeping a bit of a note of any possible cramps/twinges last month and this matched up with same feeling last CD19. We DTD CD18 but not over the weekend as we were staying at a friends and I thought ovulation had occurred earlier in the week due to EWCM. Does anyone think that this month might be a right off and we should have DTD on and after crampy evening?
Don't worry any of your thoughts appreciated....

VioletCherry Tue 25-Sep-12 11:44:11

littlepinkfizz I had similar feeling a few days ago. Would you plan to DTD before, during or after the crampy feeling? or just all of the above!!!

shineypeacock Tue 25-Sep-12 12:29:21

Arrggghhhhh!!!! 8 days to go until AF is due and it's driving me crazy! Been symptom spotting like mad,

1) Am completely knackered, has 9 hours kip last night and could go to sleep right now!
2) Sore boobage - DH gave me a cuddle this am and it hurt!!
3) Starving - (but this is not unusual tbh!!)
4) the thought of Lager makes me want to hurl (and this IS VERY odd)
5) Weird feelings in my lower right hand side not really pains JUST WEIRD FEELINGS

However, dont need to pee too much ( but bit of a camel) and dont feel sick (well a bit but have just scoffed a big bag of minstrals) and no discharge (sorry TMI)

Tried to talk to DH about this, but he says helpfully - nothings definate until the test says so!!! (pisses me off too!)

6) Add slightly irratable and emotional (and have been since Friday to this list!)

Please tell me I am not the only one! and help me get through to at least Monday before i POAS!

TakingTheStairs Tue 25-Sep-12 12:43:07

shiney, wow you have lots of symptoms! Fingers crossed for a BFP.
How many dpo are you if you don't mind me asking?

I'm on day 3 of the 2ww and I've no symptoms at all sad
I had loads over the weekend when I got my smiley on the opk. Huge emotional mood swings, nipples very obviously changed colour and size, and cramps in my lower abdomen. So I am 100% sure that ovulation happened.
...
God I really hope things take hold. I guess it just is far to early to be getting any symptoms but I live in hope!

violet I would think (in my non medical opinion) that you ovulated when you had the ewcm, not necessarily when you had the cramps. I know I ovulated on Saturday, but I had cramps up to last night too.
And the swimmers can live for days, so fx everything is as it should be.

TakingTheStairs Tue 25-Sep-12 12:43:43

*far too early.

VioletCherry Tue 25-Sep-12 13:12:46

Thanks, Taking your non medical opinion is very welcome smile
I don't want to count myself out of Oct before we had even finished Sept!

shineypeacock Tue 25-Sep-12 13:31:44

Taking

I think im 6/7 DPO AF is due early Wed (normally very regular!).

I was feeling ok until about Thurs/Friday and then became a moody, irratable biatch! then all of the other symptoms started, however they could just be PMT! So trying not to get my hopes up too much, just feel different iykwim!

FX for some symptoms coming your way soon, am not sure if mine are symptoms or I am seeing them as symptoms, Kinda ducked out of the game last month due to not DTD around the right time, but this time we did - lots grin and im not sure if its all in my head!!

xx

littlepinkfizz Tue 25-Sep-12 13:45:49

violet my symptoms are the cramping- intermittent , tender boobs, and don't know if it is ECM but it is certainly wet .
Planning on Dtd few times between now and w/end. Have still though had no dark li e on opk..

hello all!

liking the sound of all these symptoms!! I only ever have sore boobs when I'm pg, so, fwiw, I'd count that as a major BFP alert grin

I'm on roughly CD14 here. Pre-mc my cycles were around 33 days long, and I ov around CD19/20/21. Not sure whether I'll be back in same pattern now since my last wtf cycle was hardly anything to go by. Anyway though we've been dtd at least eod this cycle, I'm taking all my vits and folic acid and apart from a bit of a coldy/virusy kind of thing that's draining me this week I'm feeling pretty good and someone even told me today I'd lost weight lol Bit random! Anyway due to long wtf cycles the shagathon that has been going on for the last week has to continue for at least another week to make sure I don't miss ov. And then another week after THAT until I can test. Wahhh! I hate long cycles!! Really got fx for this cycle, tho, I'd love to be due next summer....

updating list cos i don't think i added myself on before!

Hanikam Tue 25-Sep-12 17:31:10

Just come off the pill after 6 years following birth of my second ds. I'm 38 now so maybe a little bit old to hope for a BFP first month off! Oh well, feeling v nauseous and have a strong aversion to peanut butter....so maybe, just maybe. (fingers crossed...and legs open!)

ella0 Tue 25-Sep-12 17:32:39

Ooh, do tooty fruities still exist? I haven't had them since I was a child!

I'm still getting weird cramp type feelings on and off. They now feel like a burning feeling (not painful though). I might be imagining them though!

PurpleGeekyGirl Tue 25-Sep-12 18:03:49

hanikam I am 38 too (ttc %232 after 10 year gap with new partner)

tooty fruities...nom!! good energy food for everyone still on the shagathon express line ;)

woody17 Tue 25-Sep-12 19:58:49

waves and smiles they do sound a lot like pg symptoms but I know how easy it is to symptom spot! FX you get a BFP soon.

shineypeacock your symptoms sounds very promising as well.

violetcherry from what I understand it's good to try and dtd as often as you can around the time of ov.

FX for you hanikam

Well I am on CD3 and the bleeding from mc has nearly stopped so hopefully we will be about to ttc again soon.

pocopearl Tue 25-Sep-12 20:33:51

sad

JellyCurls Wed 26-Sep-12 08:52:29

Good morning ladies, hope you are all well this morning. This 2ww is dragging in (7 dpo today) made worse by the most annoying cough in the world. Least its taking my mind off my lack of symptoms to spot

TakingTheStairs Wed 26-Sep-12 09:03:19

Good morning jellycurls and everyone else.
I thought it was Friday when I was woke up this morning, I was very disappointed when I realised that it was only Wednesday.
Trying not to think about the 2ww, 3dpo today. No symptoms either.
My friend pointed this site out to me yesterday. The calculator gives a bit more of a breakdown as to what days you should start to see symptoms, what your date of implantation is likely to be etc. I found it helpful, so I thought you guys might too.

Welcome to the bus pocopearl. Sorry to hear a BFP is unlikely in Sept for you, but I have my fingers crossed for you for October.

stickybeans why the sad face? Is everything okay?

chookford Wed 26-Sep-12 10:06:56

Morning everyone!

Sticky are you ok?
Poco welcome to the bus, fx for Oct!
Hanikam keep up the good work!
Taking thanks for the site, fx we are all going to have good news soon!
Jellycurls hope thwe cough clears soon, but at least it is taking you mind off the wait!
Woody Woohoo hopefully full steam ahead and your back ttc very soon!
Ella & littlemiss yes jelly tots do still exist and the rule!!!

Right I have made a Lemon Drizzle Cake today... any takers?!

Good morning all. chookford lemon drizzle cake sounds YUM, and the perfect accompaniment to my coffee (still heaving at the thought of a cup of tea).

Meant to be doing serious house packing this evening - I wish I could wake up in 2 weeks and it be the 9 October so I can POAS and also be in the position that my house has packed itself up and the contents moved to new house. Would avoid the lengthy 2ww and the horror of packing/sorting!

chookford Wed 26-Sep-12 10:37:04

Waves yes that would be great wouldnt it! also be able to fast forward the first 12 weeks after a bfp would be fantastic to just be able to relax and enjoy the pg..... I know you shouldnt wish your life away but this is bloody stressful! Hope the move goes well... and in two weeks you get a BFP! We are testing around the same time so if we are lucky we will be 12 weeks around Christmas/New Year.. that would be lovely, wouldnt it! FX!

TakingTheStairs Wed 26-Sep-12 10:44:50

Ooooh chookford lemon drizzle cake. yes please! Though it won't really help with the Weight Watchers plan. Sod it, I got a silver seven on Monday, pass that cake!

wavesandsmiles Packing is a PITA but at least it will distract you a bit.. and new house; super exciting. I'm currently stalking rightmove for houses, though we won't be in a position to move for at least a year sad

chookford Wed 26-Sep-12 10:48:58

haha here you go Taking <passes rather hefty slice as a reward!>

I am the same, I spend most of my working day on rightmove, we are hoping to move next year too as dh is hopefully going to be made redundant we will have enough for a deposit and also we need more bedrooms if we do have another little one next year! I am desperate to move really need more space!

PurpleGeekyGirl Wed 26-Sep-12 11:22:49

Morning all grin

I like the link to that OV chart, especially as it shows that my child free weekend is exactly when we want to be dtd this cycle, yay.

I've got a huge portion of Nigella's delicious nutella cheesecake to share. It's obscenely good and not at all fattening in the slightest, I mean LOOK at NIgella!!

TakingTheStairs Wed 26-Sep-12 11:35:09

Nutella cheesecake! Holy smokes Batman PurpleGeekyGirl Can you post a link to the recipe please?

PurpleGeekyGirl Wed 26-Sep-12 11:36:43

If you like my facebook page you'll get the recipes direct wink https://www.facebook.com/verygoodbakery

TakingTheStairs Wed 26-Sep-12 11:36:44

chookford we have a really lovely flat at the moment, but I want my own driveway and garden..I'm crossing my fingers for a substantial bonus after Christmas towards the deposit. And Fx for the redundancy pay out for you and your DH.

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

chookford Wed 26-Sep-12 11:38:22

Nutella Cheesecake.. wowzers!!!

VioletCherry Wed 26-Sep-12 11:40:06

thanks woody we DTD around the time when I thought I had ovulated, mainly due to EWCM. But unfortunately didn't have a chance over the following weekend when I experienced ovulation cramps. Was looking for some opinions whether cramps occurred before during or after ovulation. As I don't use OPK was hoping for others experiences.

chookford Wed 26-Sep-12 11:40:10

Yes we have the same Taking a very large 2 bedroom flat, but with kids I really need a garden and a drive and more bedrooms!! fx we get the babies and the house next year!

TakingTheStairs Wed 26-Sep-12 11:43:49

violetcherry As far as I know, they occur afterwards.

PurpleGeekyGirl Wed 26-Sep-12 11:43:58

violet I am new to all this as with DS1 I had NO clue at all!! but I had ewcm a few days before I had an actual pop which I think was my egg being released. Last cycle was my first off the pill so I am going to be paying close attention to my body in terms of more pops/cramps mid cycle and EWCM. I have no idea which is better for timing tho... and with a BF who lives 50 miles away dtd at the right time is not easy..! I think I ov on cd11-13 rather than cd14 so am timing my shags to then rather than just physical symptoms like ov pains or ewcm. If we don't get lucky in 6 months then I'll OPK it and hopefully he'll be living with me after xmas which will help too Good luck smile

PurpleGeekyGirl Wed 26-Sep-12 11:44:19

taking thanks and will keep shhh!

VioletCherry Wed 26-Sep-12 11:47:23

thanks, needed a little reassurance that oct bfp wasn't a right off already

chookford Wed 26-Sep-12 11:52:22

Violet I am the same.... dont use opk's so have no idea just sort of went with dtd when I had ewcm but had some cramps last few days, and boobs have been slightly tender so I am hoping they come after as dh is away for work until friday now... am not very hopeful for that bfp on the 8th...sad

I am also going to have to check out the nutella cheesecake recipe...although no chance for me to bake now til post-move. So for now, I shall enjoy the treats that you are all kindly sharing! New house will be fab - at the moment there are 6 of us, most of the time, in my 2 bed terrace - Dh, and DSSs (who stay 3 or 4 nights a week) moved in after we got married so it is a bit of a squish. We will even have a parking space at our new house!

littlepinkfizz Wed 26-Sep-12 12:20:10

Ah feck taking I've been using opk since Sunday- still no dark line but now having few cramps. I thought that might be me getting ready to ovulate but no, as usual I have missed the bloody boat

TakingTheStairs Wed 26-Sep-12 14:11:05

Ah littlepinkfizz that's very annoying. fingers crossed I'm wrong.
I got a smiley on my OPK & EWCM on Saturday and had the cramping on Sunday and Monday. But maybe the cramping is the actual ovulation as the opk tells you just before you're about to ovulate.

littlepinkfizz Wed 26-Sep-12 16:13:26

Here's hoping as I seem to have Ewcm but no dark line. Just bought more < now broke> digital opk's as at least I'll know when I am ovulating. May as well jump on the November bus though if your right

SuperSlattern Wed 26-Sep-12 18:16:51

Hello, can I join from the September bus? It's CD1 for me sad.

Would somebody mind copying me in, I'm on my phone:

SuperSlattern - cycle 4 - BFP due 25th October

woody17 Wed 26-Sep-12 19:17:03

Hi everyone - the nutella cheesecake recipe looked amazing! I am definitely going to try it. Looked fairly easy as well. I like Nigella but I don't think her recipes are particularly healthy!

I made a chocolate and salted caramel tart today - it was lush.

stickybeans I hope that you are ok.

CD5 for me today. Still spotting a bit so haven't dtd yet this cycle. Hopefully it'll stop soon and we'll be able to get on ttc.

chookford Wed 26-Sep-12 19:36:25

Littlepink fingers crossed that it isn't too late for you, it's not over until the witch shows up!

Hi Super welcome to the bus! Hopefully we wil all be getting our bfp very soon!

Woody that tart sounds amazing!!!

stickybeans Wed 26-Sep-12 19:42:08

Can I just say that I'm so thankful for all of you. Its funny that a group of ladies that I've never met have made such an impact in my life with the support I've received in my ttc journey. I get so depressed sometimes.... there's a coworker who's 19 weeks today- just so happens to be the same number of weeks I would've been. I go to work and see her growing bump and hear the stories of scans and first kicks, so hurtful sometimes. Weeell,thank you all for listening. thanks

JellyCurls Wed 26-Sep-12 20:06:02

Hugs to you stickybeans it will be your turn one day ( hopefully very soon) x

AlmondFrangipani Wed 26-Sep-12 20:40:56

cycle 1 Bfp due oct 12th

TakingTheStairs Wed 26-Sep-12 21:36:52

hop on board autumn11 and welcome to the bus.

Aww lemon drizzle cake earlier and c i missed it!! Wahh stupidly busy day in work...

Stickybeans - few friends of mine are pg too and its so hard to be genuinely upbeat after a mc sad i work with teenagers and one was going on today about how her auntie had been through a tough time with diff things so she went to a psychic over the weekend and apparently the lady kept telling her the spirit of a child she had lost was coming through when her auntie had had a late term a few years back. Now im not sure what i think about psychics but i was getting upset just hearing the story being retold this morning cos its only been 8 weeks since my mc so can only.imagine how the girl's auntie had felt. Odd story but thought I'd share, so hard ttc after mc and people don't mean to upset u..but they often do sad

Any good symptom spotting going on? None for me, pretty sure havent ov yet this cycle so taking night off dtd tonight and back at it again tomorrow (err woo hoo lol)

shineypeacock Thu 27-Sep-12 08:32:36

I know it was too early but I POAS this morning and of course it was negative, but actually it has made me feel better, i have loads of IC's so would rather p on them every day between now and Wednedsday rather than wait i think! Not going to even buy a FRER or CBD as it may well be a waste of money!

Just thought i would share that with you all, hope all is well and your not too soggy xxxx

TakingTheStairs Thu 27-Sep-12 08:57:21

Nom @ red velvet cake!

woody17 Thu 27-Sep-12 10:11:32

Morning everyone - going to see a homeopath today! Feeling quite excited about it and hopefully it'll help.

Stickybeans hope you are feeling ok. I know what you mean about the support that you get from here. I just don't find that people in RL who conceived pretty much straight away or who have never experienced a mc really understand what it's like.

shineypeacock sounds like a good plan with the IC. I am going to try really hard and not test until I'm late this cycle - thinking if I'm lucky enough to get a BFP, it might make the first 12 weeks go by a bit quicker if I'm further along when I find out!

I love red velvet cake taking the stairs - I might have to make some now!

TakingTheStairs Thu 27-Sep-12 10:38:45

Woody and shiney What are ICs and FRERs?

littlepinkfizz Thu 27-Sep-12 10:53:28

Cd 15 still no smiley but Dtd anyway last night. Planning another Dtd fri or sat. Just fed up at the minute. Why no smiley. Thought I'd have ovulated by now as I have a regular 28 day cycle.

weechops Thu 27-Sep-12 11:03:09

little you maybe just ov a bit later than you think. Luteal phase isn't always bang on 14 days, mine is 13 days and 10 days is normal too, so don't worry too much (although i know it's hard not to)

taking IC is Internet Cheapy pg tests and FRER is First Response Early Response pg tests. <knows far far too much about pg tests than any sane person should>

littlepinkfizz Thu 27-Sep-12 11:32:43

Thanks weechops have checked just now and have lots of ewcm so do you all think it was right time to Dtd last night and maybe tomorrow or just what exactly does that mean?

JellyCurls Thu 27-Sep-12 11:45:48

Cant believe I am going to ask this but here goes... 8 dpo today and no real symptoms (no imaginary ones either) however I have in increase in cm again. Kind of like ewcm but way to far after ov for that, is this normal? Have never paid attention before now - bloomin typical. Also the bumps on your aerola, not sure of their name or purpose, but they seem different. Is this normal for post ov or not?

TakingTheStairs Thu 27-Sep-12 12:53:28

jellycurls That is very normal...and in fact, I believe EWCM after Ov is a sign of BFP to come!!!!!!!!!

JellyCurls Thu 27-Sep-12 13:28:47

ooo how exciting. I promised myself I wouldnt symptom spot or become a serial POAS person this month but its getting a little difficult. Patience required and I have none.. Good job DH hid the tests from me

FrustratedSycamorePants Thu 27-Sep-12 14:57:04

Ooh jelly Montie counting. Fx for you. I had the same EWCM type cm, at about the same dpo as you

JellyCurls Thu 27-Sep-12 15:02:03

frustrated what on earth is montie counting and how many dpo are you now, cant seem to see you on the list?

FrustratedSycamorePants Thu 27-Sep-12 16:02:05

Those bumps on you areola are Montgomery's something or other, monties and last month we some ladies on sept Fred counted them.
I'm not on the list anymore jelly but I'm about 18dpo now. keeping toes in both boats

chookford Thu 27-Sep-12 17:07:03

Ooooohhh ladies I am loving the SS!! Hoping we get some good news soon!!!

Anymore cake on the go?! I am famished!

TakingTheStairs Thu 27-Sep-12 17:11:11

You can have the last slice chookford I've had two already and need to go to the gym later!

Littlepink - important an avid cm observer (gross!) and i think u get ewcm just before u over so if u c ewcm id be wanting to dtd tonight and tomorrow, keep bases covered!

Karaoke night with work.lined up for 2moro night, prob a good tgibg i haven't over just yet so a few vodka wont do any good harm. Might even be my last chance to drink fir a long while fx fx fx

Err at my crap spelling...stupid predictive text!!!

chookford Thu 27-Sep-12 19:19:13

Thank you Taking!! Nom nom that's good cake!! I should go to the gym really but I am too lazy!!

Little lol I do that all the time on my phone! Predictive txt is arse!! grin

JellyCurls Thu 27-Sep-12 20:35:38

Ha ha ha frustrated not montie counting just noticed that they look bigger today. You ladies are definitely educating me this month

Cd17 here and don't think i've over yet. Cd 19 or 20 wad normal (for me!) pre-mc so just hoping ov is en route ...hate long cycles! Continuing with workfolio acid and dtd eod..trying not to count the days til poas time!!

littlepinkfizz Fri 28-Sep-12 08:54:36

I'm cd 15 and still no smiley either littlemiss. Have never opk before just used ov calculator and seemed to have got pregnant near the end of those fertile days.

Cycle usually 28 days so hoping I'll get a smiley soon. Due to poor do problems can only hope to Dtd sat or sun . Hope it's enough.

Fx for us littlemiss

TakingTheStairs Fri 28-Sep-12 10:49:26

Morning all and happy Friday grin
We're getting close to the days for the passengers on the bus to poas.

Fx for everyone

shineypeacock Fri 28-Sep-12 11:04:05

Morning all,

Well i did another test this morning and its still a negative, (not really a surprise) but i am having the most horrendous mood swings and bursting into tears for no reason at the mo, boobs are not a bit sore and nips are normal (sorry tmi!)

taking I think im on the list as peacock, not sure where my shine went sad but im like an evil witch this week im not sure i want to shine!!

Also DH and I DTD this morning, because we wanted to rather than having to and now i feel all strange downstarirs and have more cramping but is it becuase im aware of it! (sorry TMI)

Have a top Friday one and all am going out tonight and am going to have a few drinkies for a dear friends 40th

JellyCurls Fri 28-Sep-12 12:49:27

Cramps! sad Go away cramps its far too early for AF to even dare think about visiting again.

TakingTheStairs Fri 28-Sep-12 13:55:30

implantation cramps??

littlehelp Fri 28-Sep-12 15:17:58

Afternoon all

Well thought af had arrived last night but just sporting again which has stopped still bfn so god knows lol

stickybeans Fri 28-Sep-12 15:38:49

Lost the September battle....on to Oct

Stickybeans: cycle 3, bfp due Oct 30th

littlepinkfizz Fri 28-Sep-12 17:35:55

Sorry to hear that sticky but your very welcome here, sticky toffee pudding and custard anyone? x

littlepink - yes, fx for you too! waiting for magical ov to arrive is a pain but trying really hard not to think about it too much and just dtd as much as we can fit in and hope for the best... Sticky toffee sounds lovely but about to squeeze into a going out dress to go do some karaoke. I was only 10.5 weeks pg when I had mmc at the end of July but my boobs had already inflated and they have not gone back down!

littlehelp - poss implantation bleeding?

sticky - sorry about AF but hopefully the october bus will be the pg express for you (and for us all!!)

pocopearl Fri 28-Sep-12 23:39:17

Hi all still poking my head in just in case CD 45/33 no BFP and no AF, so when AF does turn up I am prob out for October too! but pretty sure its too early for me to start a november thread! sad

weechops Sat 29-Sep-12 08:05:55

poco I may be keeping you company on a November thread sad
Tested this morning at 10dpo with a frer and bfn. Hoping it was just too early but I don't feel hopeful this month any more. No symptoms and had horrid af type pmt yesterday, so think I'm out for October.

JellyCurls Sat 29-Sep-12 08:39:26

Hang in there weechops all is not lost yet. I had no symptoms at all with my first pregnancy. Keeping fx crossed you and poco get your bfp soon

Poco - i feel for u, my cycles arent always the most regular and this is my first proper one post-mc so it will prob end up being epically long. I usually ov around cd19 and im on cd18 today with.not the faintest sign that ov might be imminent so not feeling v optimistic about October. Yet. Fx for u!

TakingTheStairs Sat 29-Sep-12 09:55:13

Don't give up hope yet weechops, I'm rooting for you <reaches for Pom Poms>

Fingers crossed too for you poco

stickbeans I'm sorry that Sept has gone for you but selfishly we're very happy to have you on the bus with us for Oct

<sprinkles baby dust everywhere>

Hanikam Sat 29-Sep-12 13:58:21

Can I join? don't know what the cycle bit means tho. Hoping for a bfp on Sunday 7th October, and came off the pill this month. so good luck to all on here. We'll see what next week brings

(I do feel a wee bit preggo actually)

JellyCurls Sat 29-Sep-12 15:24:17

10dpo today and i am cramping bad sad trying to hold out till Wed before testing but not sure i will last. Need to find where DH has hid the tests

woody17 Sat 29-Sep-12 17:17:47

Hi everyone - hope you're all having a good weekend!

I got a +ve with tesco ov sticks today but I'm only on CD8 - does that seem too early?

Pixie001 Sat 29-Sep-12 17:51:36

hi everyone - for the BFPs at start of Oct..when will you be testing?

i think i'll be on a Nov bus for cycle 1 as i'm pretty sure we missed this month (although you never know BFP could be start of Oct???) but having read a few posts can't wait to start hearing some news from everyone!

littlepinkfizz Sat 29-Sep-12 18:16:00

Week cd 17 and finally a smiley plus we managed to Dtd when ds asleep this afternoon - hooray!

Hope it may be enough as likelihood of Dtd again in 48 hrs v low.,but realistic that it's a long shot.

pixie fx you'll be an oct BFP

woody I read somewhere that you can ovulate very early after mc so get busy girl!

Hope it's good news all round as we near the end of September and enter October <waves Pom poms for October BFPs>

pocopearl Sat 29-Sep-12 22:33:00

weechops hopefully we will get some well deserved BFPs before then.

I am still hanging around in limbo no BFP & no AF. CD 47or 48/33 My cycles are always 33 days without fail, and AF always without fail turns up just after lunch (think she likes to lure me into a false sense of security to start the day off with). Has anyone else ever had anything like this? I have very much had enough.

pocopearl Sat 29-Sep-12 22:36:21

and also not to make it all about me but my boobs have been sooooo sore since 10dpo i think I deserve a BFP just putting up with two sore whaps!

lowra Sat 29-Sep-12 22:41:14

Been lurking on the thread. Popo have you been to the docs?

lowra Sat 29-Sep-12 22:41:50

Poco, sorry!

MrsTwinks Sat 29-Sep-12 23:42:14

AF arrived early today so I'm out sad but i'm not surprised given cycle 1 after mc. dh already under orders it better be next month thou as I can't take another August baby (5 in immediate family including me & dh wink )

PurpleGeekyGirl Sun 30-Sep-12 08:01:37

Oh FFs EWCM arrived TODAY (cd6!!!) and not seeing boyfriend again till Friday. So I am out for October stomps off in a big huff, stupid body

littlepinkfizz Sun 30-Sep-12 08:20:36

Poor you purple but don't despair.. I had ewcm earlier in week and only got a smiley yesterday. Don't despair x

Sorry to hear bout flamin AF twinks . Fx for a late October BFP for you!
