Creamtea1 Tue 20-Nov-12 15:29:28

I'm joining, cycle 3, cd17 of around 35.
Wierdy ov pains today
And hello!

chookford Tue 20-Nov-12 15:30:34

No problem Taking you have a reserved seat... I hope in the nicest way possible you don't need to catch this bus as you will have your bfp in nov!

chookford Tue 20-Nov-12 15:31:33

Hi creamtea welcome to the bus!! I will do a proper list later as on phone now and never works on here!

TakingTheStairs Tue 20-Nov-12 16:09:07

Thanks Chookford, fingers crossed I don't need the seat (in the nicest way smile )

Haylebop12 Tue 20-Nov-12 16:11:12

Welcome cream tea :-)

Creamtea1 Tue 20-Nov-12 16:48:56

Thanks chook and hayle! smile

okavango Tue 20-Nov-12 16:51:03

Hi

Please can I hop on? On third cycle after mc2 first ttc though. Bfp due 3 Dec, although we are having a lazy month as we are both terrified about trying and failing again.

Thanks

chookford Tue 20-Nov-12 17:26:44

okavango welcome to the bus we are a merry old bunch!

okavango Tue 20-Nov-12 17:30:55

I know you are! been lurking while we waited

extracrunchy Tue 20-Nov-12 17:33:23

Hi everyone! I'll be testing around 9/12. Nice to have some of you around again! X

chookford Tue 20-Nov-12 17:36:59

Hi crunchy welcome to the bus.... Will do a proper chart of everyone's stats tomorrow when on pc, can't do it on phone!

extracrunchy Tue 20-Nov-12 17:37:41

Oh and I'm cycle 9 after mc in Feb x

BinarySolo Tue 20-Nov-12 17:38:17

Can I join? Been trying since March so 8 months. Took 5 last time so I'm hoping BFP is just around the corner. Testing on 4th December.

frogchops Tue 20-Nov-12 17:41:48

Evening travellers!
Donuts......this sounds like the bus for me!
I'd make tea but we've got no milk.
Welcome to new passengers, and hello to last months bf bloody n's.
I'm gonna start off a positive sing song in a mo......

Frogchops - cycle 2 BFP due around Dec 19

Hi all. Am jumping on and straddling nov and dec buses but think that dec is more likely. No idea when I'm due though. As per usual. Prob test around the 4th of dec.

extracrunchy Tue 20-Nov-12 18:05:17

frogchops ok but no Old MacDonald though cos we've just had that with ds all the (long) way home on the bus...

frogchops Tue 20-Nov-12 18:15:28

How about......
Inky pinky ponky,
Daddy bought a donkey,
Donkey died and mommy cried,
Inky pinky ponky.

Hmmm, not very positive....I'm not good at this! Lol

chookford Tue 20-Nov-12 18:20:01

Welcome binary fx we are all going to have a very sober Christmas!

extracrunchy Tue 20-Nov-12 18:20:26

Lol where did you learn that?! I've got something similar (to the tune of Oh Christmas Tree):

Oh Tom the toad, oh Tom the toad
Why did you jump out on the road?
You were so green, but now you're red.
You were alive, but now you're dead.

Oh Tom the toad, oh Tom the toad
Why did you jump out on the road?

extracrunchy Tue 20-Nov-12 18:20:56

Welcome binary!

chookford Tue 20-Nov-12 18:21:19

Lol frog I like that song!!

chookford Tue 20-Nov-12 18:22:13

Haha positive sounds ladies!! Not ones about squashed toads and dead donkeys!!

chookford Tue 20-Nov-12 18:22:38

Songs not sounds!! Bloody auto correct!

littlestgirlguide Tue 20-Nov-12 18:52:28

Hi everyone!
I'm calling this cycle 3 (3rd normal-looking cycle since implant removal, though blood tests show I'm not ovulating yet, I'm trying to keep positive as apparantly it could start again at any time, and I have every symptom of ovulation except the actual egg!)
Keep those positive vibes going ladies!

littlestgirlguide cycle 3. BFP not very likely, but hoped for around 9th December.

Brodicea Tue 20-Nov-12 19:13:46

Brodicea, cycle 4. BFP due 14th December

Go Team Egg & Sperm!

MrsTwinks Tue 20-Nov-12 19:22:38

tentatively boarding.. tww-ing so everything including legs now crossed. Cycle 3 after MC and my last hope for that BF-sticky!-P this year that I've been hoping for. I think if we go into 2013 DH will actually go thru with his threat to shove superglue up there too grin wink so BFP better show up Dec 2nd!

Cherrycherry Tue 20-Nov-12 19:31:20

Hi, please can I join? been ttc #2 since August but now on 1st cycle since mc but am sure I ov'd at the weekend. Will test 1st/2nd Dec if someone ties my hands up until then if af not appeared by then.

frogchops Tue 20-Nov-12 19:36:14

Haha the frog song is brill!
I duno here I learnt inky pinky ponky. I work in a children's centre so its anyone's guess!

Aquarius1 Tue 20-Nov-12 19:42:53

I'm on board [sits down and slurps glass of white] cycle 8-ish, af/bfp due 11 dec-ish. binary I wish I'd thought of that name! is it a FOTC reference?

Cherrycherry Tue 20-Nov-12 19:54:21

Ok, I've now bought tea & Buenos for all!

petal86 Tue 20-Nov-12 19:55:20

Can i come on board?

(Offers homemade chocolate cake around - there's only half left though, been a long few days hmm )

Af/BFP due 5th December

Hi Ladies, please may I join after two unsuccessful previous bus journeys!!

I am clinging on to my last chance of getting pg before Christmas, I don't know why but I have a really strong need to be pregnant by this point...I cannot explain why I just do. My cycles are all over the place, I have always been a 28/29 day kind of girl; but my last 3 cycles were 31, 32 and then 34!! Anyone else ever had this?

I have been pregnant twice (1 DD, 1 MC) and both times I got pregnant straight away, first month of trying and from having sex once! On month 4 now since the mc is seeming a very long time, although I know to some people this is nothing I can't help worrying there is something wrong.

I'm on CD7 today...just out of interest is everybody else DTD every day, every other day...?

OveranxiousUnderated - Cycle 4 since MC - BFP Due around 14th December.

extracrunchy Tue 20-Nov-12 20:49:17

Hi overanxious - I've been the same with weird cycle lengths since mc. Used to be 28 on the nose, since Feb I've had 34, 30 and 72 (???? Possibly a mmc). Last couple have been 32. I think it's quite common to take a little while to resettle. X

extracrunchy Tue 20-Nov-12 20:50:33

Oh and I completely understand where you're coming from with the last chance this year thing. It's getting me a bit worked up. Just cried at the Pampers newborn ad.hmm

deliasmithy Wed 21-Nov-12 00:26:32

Please can I hop on board this bus?
I'm hoping this will be cycle 2 of TTC, but am on week 9 of current cycle and still going strong! No symptoms, POAS 2 weeks ago = bfn. Had just stopped taking mini pill
When I stopped pill earlier this year I had AF within normal time.
Should I go to docs or keep waiting it out?? Aaarrgghh!
Sorry for verbal diarrhoea there!

JellyCurls Wed 21-Nov-12 06:15:51

Hello ladies <waves and climbs aboard>

I am here armed with soy, tinsel and fairy lights (for when the big man visits) and a lump of coal (for when the bells ring). Taking upthe very last seat on the bus

jellycurls cycle 3 post cp bfp due 31st december 2012.

Cycles now at average of 40 days since cp!

JellyCurls Wed 21-Nov-12 06:20:32

frog we used to sing the donkey song as kids. Think it was one of the silly songs we sang while doing weird clappy hand things. Can't get song out of my head now

extracrunchy Wed 21-Nov-12 07:20:19

Hi jelly! Sorry to hear AF got you sad you're right about symptom spotting! Still impossible not to do it...
Anyway wouldn't a BFP just in time for New Year be lovely?!
xx

BinarySolo Wed 21-Nov-12 07:47:58

Yes aquarius1 it is indeed a FOTC reference. I was prettyprinceofparties before, but much prefer my new name!

Totally understand the desire to be pregnant NOW! Last chance this year so fingers crossed.

I have even bought ovulation tests and have an iPhone period tracker. Hmm slightly obsessive!

Haylebop12 Wed 21-Nov-12 07:54:59

Overanxious

I'm veer similar to you. Two pregnancies, one dd one mc. Since mc my cycles have been 37,34,28,28 and 24 (wtf) just aa I thought everything was back to normal!

The longer is goes the more stresses I get which I know us no good. But if one more person says to be "you gotta stop thinking about it, my friend who was blah blah blah" I will not be help responsible for my actions. (DM and MIL mainly!) neither of them have had an mc or struggled to get pg. think I might tell em we've stopped. They only know because they knew about mc so anyways bloody ask. Nosey

Cd 5 here so preparing for dtd, here we go again!

Haylebop12 Wed 21-Nov-12 07:56:40

Sorry for the typos, my phone likes to predict! Grrr

annaloulou Wed 21-Nov-12 08:28:23

may I take a seatblush
Im on cycle 4, had an emc last monthsad
bfp due on the 2nd grin

I have also been lurking observing some of the other buses and just got the courage to jump on!

So as its the done thing....tada <produces tin of roses> grin

extracrunchy Wed 21-Nov-12 08:46:38

Welcome anna!

binary - same here! Clearblue Fertility Monitor AND iPhone app grin

hayle my DM says that to me every time I see her... Although last time she'd heard something on the radio and had a whole list of supplements and stuff that she said I should be taking confused MIL just asks if it's happened yet every couple of weeks. Driving me mad!!

chookford Wed 21-Nov-12 08:49:00

Haylebop12 Wed 21-Nov-12 10:26:52

Welcome anna were a lovely bunch with plenty goodies to share round.

Dd is super poorly with a chest infection so having a few days off to relax and get her right. Poor little mite is missing school sad

I'm attempting not to do any opks or work out fertile time and just dtd as much as we can muster. That's my new approach as this whole thing is really starting to get to me.

Creamtea1 Wed 21-Nov-12 11:06:18

Chook - bfp due around 8th dec I think, cycles a bit hit and miss!

chookford Wed 21-Nov-12 11:13:47

You are very welcome annalou and fx you will be getting your bfp very soon!

Hayle sorry to hear about your dd, its so horrible when they are poorly isnt it! And I know what you mean about the stress of all of this ttc lark, I never realised how hard trying to have a baby can be! (both my dd and my angel baby were concieved on the pill)

Been to toddler group this morning and stole all the biscuits so here we go biscuit for everyone to go with choc and cake.

annaloulou Wed 21-Nov-12 13:52:21

Hey All!
<waves bk to quiet>

something thats been playing on my mind.... had smiley face sat, ovulation pain sunday with ewcm...is it normal to get the ewcm for 3 days???? is that tmi??? blush

LatieK Wed 21-Nov-12 13:52:41

Hi everyone, can I nab a seat too?

I'm new to MN (haven't even lurked that much!) so not sure I quite get this bus thing... There seems to be a lot of sweet stuff going around - can I interest anyone in some quiche? smile

On cycle 7 now and starting to get a bit fed up. Hoping that being on the bus will somehow up my chances of a BFP!

LatieK cycle 7 - BFP due 13th Dec

Hi Latie <waves>

LatieK Wed 21-Nov-12 14:00:01

Hi annaloulou and thanks for adding me to the list chookford (sorry to make you copy and paste it again smile)

extracrunchy Wed 21-Nov-12 14:01:07

hayle - my ds has had a chest infection this week too. We've got antibiotics now and he seems to be on the mend but was pretty nasty. Temp 104+ etc. Hope you guys are holding up! X

Haylebop12 Wed 21-Nov-12 14:04:08

Hi extra

We got antibiotics yesterday evening but she's not holding anything, including meds, down. Seems to be getting worse then better :-(
She's never ill but she's so brave.

extracrunchy Wed 21-Nov-12 14:07:05

Oh no sad we had the vomiting bit on Saturday and Sunday but is fine now. We did the BRAT diet - bananas, rice, apples and toast (and quite a few Hobnobs!) and cuddled on the sofa for days. Seemed to help! He's just super cranky and coughs now, no more temp. Is she keeping water down??

Anna ewcm can last 3 or 4 days if you're lucky. It kinda covers your fertile period and then goes once you've ovulated. And I don't think there's such a thing as tmi when you're on a ttc bus smile

Haylebop12 Wed 21-Nov-12 14:14:29

She's keeping it down in sips. Will try the BRAT diet, that's new to me!

Haylebop12 Wed 21-Nov-12 14:15:33

The more info the better as it may be a matter of someone else is going through it and scared to speak up!

extracrunchy Wed 21-Nov-12 14:25:10

Good that she's keeping water down. Have you got some Dioralyte to keep her salt levels etc steady? We went through Norovirus last winter and that stuff was a godsend. He quite liked the blackcurrant taste as well!
Oh it's horrible when they're poorly isn't it sad hope you're getting some rest too x

annaloulou Wed 21-Nov-12 14:25:15

Thank you soo much Quiet

I was confused as I ov Sun and still had ewcm this AM confused

I had this this month I had ewcm and ovulation pains beginning of last week then had ewcm again at weekend and sharp pain on sun eve but I believe that your body can gear itself up to ovulate ie ewcm etc and then it doesn't for some reason ie stress or travelling and then actually ovulated at a later time so maybe that's what happened with you? I'm no expert spand I've found this month very confusing but I bought taking charge of your fertility and am going from that really.

Spand? That's not a word! And. Stupid ipad

littlestgirlguide Wed 21-Nov-12 14:34:30

It's perfectly possible to have EWCM without actually ovulating, that what my traitorous body does to me sad
You can also have two spells of EWCM in one cycle, happened to me last month, and I didn't ovulate with either, dammit.

Having EWCM today - home from work early, DD at nursery, and guess what, DH is working so no chance of a sneaky DTD.

Might do some baking instead.

chookford Wed 21-Nov-12 14:37:23

Hayle as Crunchy said Dioralyte was my saviour too when both dd and dh got norovirus last year, takes a bit of getting used too but really does work if you can get her to take some she may perk up.

Littlestgirl, how do you know you didn't ovulate? How do you know when you do? I had ewcm and ovulation (or what I thought was) pain last week then a small amount of ewcm and a sharp pain on the right side this weekend and positive opk on sun. How do I know if I ovulated at all?

annaloulou Wed 21-Nov-12 15:26:20

Thanks for taking the time to answer my question quiet smile
I guess I will just have to wait and see (which for me means poas frm sat wink)

littlest sending lots of positive thoughts your wayxx

No prob Anna. Good luck for poas!

TakingTheStairs Wed 21-Nov-12 17:53:27

quietninja you wouldn't have gotten a positive on your OPK if you weren't going to ovulate. You would have ovulate 24-48 hours after that OPK result.
x

petal86 Wed 21-Nov-12 17:58:25

Can i second that question quiet, I'm a bit confused too. I haven't had a positive opk yet and no ewcm either (CD 16). Do you get ewcm every month?
confused

sparkle101 Wed 21-Nov-12 18:15:16

Hi, please can I join the bus! This is cycle four and an due the 9th December. Finding it a struggle this month, I so want it to happen so edd would be close to dd, to share clothes and stuff! Although it would have to be a girl, also because I was pregnant at the sane time with dd ill know what to expect with dates etc, although I suspect as per usual I am over thinking it!

What will be will be!!!

navis176 Wed 21-Nov-12 19:46:53

Hi! Can I hop on? <offers round liquorice allsorts - for some reason, I really fancy them today>

CD1, so starting the loooooong 30 day wait to see what happens this month...

navis176 cycle 2 since mmc - BFP due 20th Dec

Best of luck to everyone for xmas BFPs

extracrunchy Wed 21-Nov-12 20:34:33

Hi navis and sparkle!
Mmmmm I love liquorice allsorts...

frogchops Wed 21-Nov-12 20:48:39

Who mentioned quiche....I'm up for quiche!!
Af been here 3 days and is starting to fade away...woooooo!
Can't wait to get back to the old jsing, it feels like ages. I hope it's not just me that gets the post af horniness!, lol. Am trying to not obsess about when I'm fertile etc...but actually who am I trying to kid, lol...my dates will be on my phone app before u have chance to say bish bash bloody bosh!!

Haylebop12 Wed 21-Nov-12 21:02:35

Me too frog

I get horny when AF is here hmm

Aquarius1 Wed 21-Nov-12 21:31:17

frogchops silly question but what's jsing? Same as dtd'ing / bd'ing?

binary I reckon I should maybe change my name to businesstime to continue the FOTC theme - feels like that sometimes after 8 months of trying!

Haylebop12 Wed 21-Nov-12 21:32:55

Jsing I believe us just shagging...

frogchops Wed 21-Nov-12 21:44:29

Sorry, I'm usually posting on the 'just shagging thread' .... There's a whole new language on there, lol. Yes, it's 'just shagging' (supposedly with no obsession about dates, ovulation, etc.... Yeh right!)

littlestgirlguide Wed 21-Nov-12 22:28:40

In sorry for my negativity folks!
I know I didn't ovulate because I had day 2 and day 21 bloods last month which confirmed no ovulation despite plenty of EWCM.
I've never had a positive OPK though, I'd just not been that concerned as I'd read they can be a bit temperamental anyway.
I think if you are getting positive OPKs, EWCM and ovary pains all at te same time of cycle, then you've got nothing to worry about :-)

okavango Thu 22-Nov-12 11:31:12

Have some rice crispy cakes for elevenses, there is nothing else in the house!

I feel that if the ticket inspector got on the bus today I would be thrown off for having a fake ticket. Opk has been saying

go for it since Tuesday and we are not although dtd on Sunday. After waiting for ages to start trying on doctor's orders following mc2 i am now too scared to.

Am still going to hide in the corner of the bus but this month might be a free ride!

SpanishLady Thu 22-Nov-12 15:15:13

Hi everyone

I am looking to start TTC a second baby from December. I have a boy who is turning 2 next week so we will see if we can give him a sister or brother!

Im not 100% sure when I'll be due as my cycle have fluctuated from 24 days to 27 days since my periods came back when I stopped breastfeeding.

SpanishLady cycle 1 - BFP due 26 December

Feels like ages away (im currently waiting for my next period and then we start trying) but on the other hand cant believe we are going to go for a second baby!

good luck everyone!

monkette Thu 22-Nov-12 16:46:05

Hi all can I jump on the bus. Been ttc since September but this is the first month we've really tried. So hoping for a bfp around the 11th December.

annaloulou Thu 22-Nov-12 17:02:56

Hi To all

welcome sparkle navis spanish and monk

Good luck all smile

BinarySolo Thu 22-Nov-12 21:15:56

Yes aquarius do it! Although I'll be singing, 'making love for 2, making love for 2 minutes' to myself for the rest of the evening now! There'a some great business time tshirts on eBay.

Aquarius1 Thu 22-Nov-12 21:27:51

Haylebop12 Fri 23-Nov-12 10:48:59

Just nipping in quickly as to not lose this thread!!

Cd 7 today so need to start gearing up for some serious baby making although I have a feeling I'm coming down with something :-(

Dd still not right an reckon I'm coming down wig similar so not totally optimistic about the December bus going my direction!!

extracrunchy Fri 23-Nov-12 13:07:19

Same here hayle... Ewcm yesterday/today but I just feel too rough to get on with it! X

Ah I see littlest, thank you. Still not out for November but keep getting cramps pain so reckon the witch will be on me any day now.

Dexidoo Sat 24-Nov-12 09:18:10

Hello December bus mates

I have hopped on but may be a bit quiet- consider me sitting in the corner dozing but enjoying the ambience!! Scaling back on the OPKs and regimented shagging regime this month for no reason other than to chill out a bit. Currently day 10 and DTD for the first time this cycle last night- lazy!

Good luck to everyone smile I'll add myself to the list but vague on dates as only want to test if AF doesn't appear around the right time.

<please keep throwing choccies at me to keep me awake>

Just done an ovulation test. It's positive. WHat's that about? It was positive a week ago when it should have been and I had the matching EWCM. What are you up to body? Defo not egg white now. Hmmm.

extracrunchy Sat 24-Nov-12 12:23:38

Could be BFP... You can use ovulation tests to check for pregnancy (but not the other way round)

BinarySolo Sat 24-Nov-12 16:21:21

Yes I read that. Pregnancy test was negative, but it is 9 days early. Will have to wait and see. Grrr. I hate waiting!

extracrunchy Sat 24-Nov-12 17:11:54

Haha tell me about it... I think it's worse nowadays because we're used to being able to get information off the internet at the drop of a hat. So weird but when we first started TTC and I wanted to know if it had worked my immediate impulse was to google it to find out! X

extracrunchy Sat 24-Nov-12 17:12:19

Maybe dtd just to be on the safe side..?!

BinarySolo Sat 24-Nov-12 17:48:28

I wanted to know if it had worked my immediate impulse was to google it to find out

Hehe. Thought it was just me doing that! There's some seriously weird people using yahoo answers too!

BinarySolo Sat 24-Nov-12 17:49:27

extracrunchy that's always good advice!

setayharas Sat 24-Nov-12 17:52:53

Hi everyone!!

Just jumping on this bus! Af got me today.

Setayharas. Cycle2 bfp due 24th dec

Now for the wine!

BinarySolo Sat 24-Nov-12 18:31:56

Welcome aboard Setayharas

Haylebop12 Sat 24-Nov-12 18:47:05

Ooooh wine. Any going spare setay?

navis176 Sat 24-Nov-12 19:36:14

Dexi - I'm scaling back on the OPKs and regimented shagging regime this month too - nice to know someone else is trying it too!

Hayle and Setay - pass the wine this way - waiting for shagging week and bored already!! Another 9 days before serious getting down to it commences - anyone else waiting?

I'm sorry setay wine I've been out with friends tonight so have had a couple of wine too. I'm sure I haven't done it this month again so not too worried.

tothemoon Sun 25-Nov-12 03:51:42

Room to squeeze in another? DH back next week from working abroad for a few weeks, just so happens I "should" be OV then. Fingers crossed! Wondering whether to bother with a OPK? This is our first time trying, had one AF since coming off pill, all nice and regular smile I should OV but might have implantation probs so I'm excited and nervous at the same time confused

Not had wine in any shape or form for 6 weeks. It's killing me!

I was naughty last night tothemoon! Do what you like if you're only in your second cycle I wouldn't worry too much about opks. Just dtd every 2-3 days and you'll be fine.

Cherrycherry Sun 25-Nov-12 11:21:09

Hi ladies,
Wanted to say sorry cos I jumped on this bus taking a seat but then didn't speak to anyone! how rude of me!
I'm slowly getting through my 2ww which feels like about a month! I gave to my poas obsession earlier, don't know why cos I'm only 8dpo!!I just can't help myself! what is that all about?! needless to say it was bfn.
had cramps yesterday for a while & have been having waves of nausea for last hour or so but of course I'm not symptom spotting yeah whatever.
Hope everyone else is doing well?
X

frogchops Sun 25-Nov-12 12:08:28

Tothemoon, similar to me, just had one af since stopping pill, and am rady to go again. First cycle took 30 days so no complaints. Have bought opk sticks but aim to dtd every 2-3 days. Having said that I've come down with a cold that DP said he does not want, so I'm hoping it buggers off soon!

setayharas Sun 25-Nov-12 12:40:27

Sorry drunk all the wine last night,
I'll knock you all up a batch of mulled wine to pass around, as it is the festive season of corse. According to calendar af due on Xmas day this cycle. Let's hope it's a bfp or I'll be a hormonal mess Xmas day and I wouldn't wish that on anyone lol.

Just purchased oh some pregnacare for men. Anyone use these?

9 days until the baby making can commence again! This month I will not symptom spot, and give u all permission to shout when I do!

extracrunchy Sun 25-Nov-12 13:11:58

DH and I are both taking Pregnacare (his and hers!). Worked for DS so we'll see... He did point out though that it's basically a standard multivitamin with extra zinc and something herbal but for about 15 times the price! X

Pixie001 Sun 25-Nov-12 13:21:36

hi everyone! i've just jumped off the Nov bus as AF arrived today so hopping on here if there's a seat? just enjoyed some brie for lunch since i can.

i was expecting af as we didn't have business time wink around the right dates but she was randomly 3 days early so i'm thinkin to get opks this cycle to check ov dates. for those that have used them, any you would suggest? can't believe how expensive they are!

cycle 3 BFP 22 Dec

i fancy doin some baking this avo - any requests?

LatieK Sun 25-Nov-12 13:37:21

Right. I've just ordered the Clearblue fertility monitor. dh says I'm not allowed to moan about not getting pg unless I'm throwing everything possible at the problem!!!

From what I understand you can only start using it from cd1 - I'm on cd10 (starting the monthly shagathon) so hopefully sod's law will kick in and I'll get my BFP before I can actually use the thing smile

setayharas I'm taking Pregnacare for women and broached the subject of the men's version with my dh the other day. I don't really believe that they'll do anything (apart from the folic acid for me) and dh is v skeptical, but in the spirit of trying everything possible...

frogchops Sun 25-Nov-12 13:38:37

Pixie I've just bought 50 ov sticks for £7.90 from amazon. One step is the brand I think.

setayharas Sun 25-Nov-12 13:45:33

Yeah I take the conception support, although they do make me nauseas. Oh says he'll take them but doesn't believe they'll really do anything to help either but at least he's willing to give it a go even just to shut me up!

Ooh baking... Any good at cupcakes with vanilla cream topping? I'd rip your hand off for one right now!

frogchops Sun 25-Nov-12 13:52:01

I that the boots conception support? I take those, they made me feel sick at first too. DP doesn't take anything tho, but does take his own vitamins.

setayharas Sun 25-Nov-12 13:59:32

Yeah that's them it's not just me then, I panicked that because I'm an ex smoker and it says do not take if a smoker that it was because of that that I was feeling rough.
gonna try the actual pregnacare see how I get on with them.

frogchops Sun 25-Nov-12 14:16:03

I carried on with the conception support but I only take them every other day. The sickness has kept away since! I work with a midwife who suggested that pregnacare was exactly the same but more expensive, so j didn't bother with those!

Creamtea1 Sun 25-Nov-12 15:45:08

Frogchops I use the one step ones and they are good. Also got some hpt versions of them, I won't say they're good until I get a bfp tho!

Pixie001 Sun 25-Nov-12 16:58:35

right...should have some one steps arrive any day soon! thanks for the recommendation frogchops! creamtea what's hpt?

i take sanatogen 'mother to be' vitamins - is pregnacare/conception support similar?

setay a rather wobbly decorated cupcake with some lovely sparkles coming your way!

frogchops Sun 25-Nov-12 18:03:45

Pixie, hpt is home preg test! I've got the one step ones too. Mother to be is the same thing as conception support and pregnacare. But conception support were on offer. That's why I had them!

MrsTwinks Sun 25-Nov-12 18:48:58

Started feeling a bit sick/dizzy this morning, then went to visit my db who announced he and sil are expecting, so not sure if my continued feeling sick & more is psychosomatic as (as much as I'm happy to be an aunty) I'm a wee bit emotional what with the MC etc. and of course I can't say anything

But, all the symptoms to appear to be starting. Cramps & my pet hate I had last time of hiccups. Hopefully not all wishful thinking and the cousins will still be a month apart just the other way wink

Brodicea Sun 25-Nov-12 19:54:08

Hello can I join please?

cycle 4 (and getting sore) BFP due 14 Dec

Brodicea Sun 25-Nov-12 19:54:58

Oh and good luck all!

JellyCurls Sun 25-Nov-12 21:14:48

mrstwinks my db and sil also announced pregnancy today so sitting here in a downer. If we hadn't had mc in august then we would be announcing too. Hey ho just need to get on the case as soon as af buggers off.

Got pcos so plan is to dtd every other day till we get fed up with the whole ttc thing and go for drunken shagging again. Worked before so why not again

extracrunchy Sun 25-Nov-12 21:48:50

Supposed to be ovulating tomorrow and been barfing all day sad SOB

MrsTwinks Sun 25-Nov-12 21:55:29

jellycurls sucks doesnt it. I think what made it a bit worse for me was our MC wasn't a secret, so we were obviously the last to know, and alot of "sympathetic" looks but no one actually raising the elephant in the room that it might be a bit upsetting to me, and how are we doing after etc etc. Not nice that it also explains why my mum (who other epic thread to explain HER) has ignored me for the last two months as I'm now surplus to requirements as her Darling son is providing her with the heir her barren (her words) daughter can't

sorry needed to get that out. Good luck with the lots of shagging ;)

extracrunchy I've heard being sick can delay ovulation, so I wouldn't count yourself out just yet ;)

frogchops Sun 25-Nov-12 22:06:59

Oh twinks that's awful, but remember you're doing this for you... Not to please anyone else. Don't stress about someone else's situation, this won't help you and yours. Relax as much as you can, easier said than done I know.... Cape on, chin up, climb aboard the passion wagon and happy shagging!!

littlestgirlguide Sun 25-Nov-12 22:28:58

Ah twinks, that's awful and I feel for you / my mums never said the B word but my SiL is due 28/12 and it's clear who is the most popular offspring just at present :-/ very easy to say relax, much harder to actually do (I know about that too!) but good luck - this is your baby, not your mums, so go at your pace!

MrsTwinks Sun 25-Nov-12 23:00:07

thanks. I know to ignore her - I've been doing it since she first made it obvious all she was interested in from me was grandchildren and in a way I'm glad cos now it'll be easier to keep her from fucking up my kids the way she did me as she'll have DB's to concentrate on. Its still a wrench thou.

Morning everyone, <waves at Chookford>

Is there still room on the bus for me? I'm meant to be poas this Wednesday but tested early today and got a BFN. I'm hoping it's because it's too early but I don't think that's the case.
You know when you have one of those months where you're convinced it's going to work this month and then it doesn't... yep, that's me this month. sad
So, I guess my stats will be

hahaha!! oi get off!!!!

ooh I do want a sausage sandwich now though!! god I love a good sausage wink

setayharas Mon 26-Nov-12 11:05:09

Morning all!

So oh told everyone excitedly that we wee ttc. Got a visit from my best mate who so far in my life has done everything before us, we got engaged she did and planned her wedding before we had even had a chance to look at a mag when we bought our house so did she the road down from us. We got a kitten she got 2, u get the idea. Anyway told me her and her oh have decided to ttc aswell as she would like our children to b born around the same time and we can br pregnant together( thata saying we both fall easily and have no trouble) now I don't wanna feel like this bit I can't help it, we want to move on with our lives at our own pace and I can't help but feel like she's making it some sort of competition and all I wanna do is scream at her I don't wanna involve u in everything I do.

Think I need someone to put me back in my place and calm me down lol and stop me being so unreasonable.
Go for it ladies lol. Sorry to rant so early in the week!

Mrskbpw Mon 26-Nov-12 11:15:46

Hello all.

CD1 for me today. Trying not to mind too much. Had a wonderful weekend with my best friend having a baby on Saturday and getting some unexpected PPI money, so I kept thinking a BFP would have been the third Good Thing. Oh well.

It's our third cycle, and we're TTC number 3. My next period is due on Dec 23rd.

TakingTheStairs Mon 26-Nov-12 11:42:23

Oohh Setay that would drive me nuts, I'd be giving my OH a smack for being so thoughtless too though! grin
Does he even realise what he has done?
Maybe you should tell your friend that you've decided to hold off for a bit and keep trying without telling anyone.

Hi Mrskbpw sorry the witch got you, fx for this cycle.

Chookford I'm now debating having a sausage sandwich for lunch. yum yum!

BinarySolo Mon 26-Nov-12 14:16:08

I really must stop this obsessive testing. Ovulation tests first half of the cycle, then pregnancy tests the second half.

Believe it or not, I'm an intelligent woman, so why oh why oh why do I test well before my period is due EVERY month. What is wrong with me?

Don't even get me started on the symptom spotting bollocks I do every month...,

Haylebop12 Mon 26-Nov-12 14:32:53

I am refusing to do any opks or even count which cd I am on :-) my new approach!

MrsTwinks Mon 26-Nov-12 14:41:16

can you two give me some willpower please. Trying so god damned hard right now NOT to go and try using an opk as a pregnancy test. I had enough willpower not to go and buy those but the opk's are just sitting there... and I probably wont need them next month..

seriously I'm not the only one with a visit due this weekend, how are none of the rest of you going insane with the wait.

TakingTheStairs Mon 26-Nov-12 14:57:04

<SHOUTS> Step away from the OPKs MrsTwinks, Step away!!!!!

Firstly, OPKs are not reliable as pregnancy tests.

Secondly, Testing this early is a waste of your time. It's too early for a BFP
"Implantation, when the fertilized egg implants into the endometrium, happens about a week after ovulation (range: 6-12 days), and it takes another 3-4 days after implantation (9-16 dpo: days after ovulation) for the blood pregnancy test to first become positive, followed 2-3 days later by the early positive pregnancy urine test, the home pregnancy test (HPT)."

MrsTwinks Mon 26-Nov-12 15:04:41

see... logically I know this. But I still wanna do it just in case

BinarySolo Mon 26-Nov-12 15:28:05

Mrs Twinks! You're so like me! Cheap pregnancy and ovulation tests are both a blessing and a curse. Mainly a curse. A curse I tell you!

BinarySolo Mon 26-Nov-12 15:31:26

Oh yes, and asking me to talk you out of testing? Did you not read my previous post. I've already tested twice this month. I blame the possibly pregnant hormones for this obsessive and irrational behaviour.

Ahem

MrsTwinks Mon 26-Nov-12 15:44:53

lol! god help our DP's when the hormones REALLY kick in eh

TakingTheStairs Mon 26-Nov-12 15:58:12

My DH said when we starting TTC to conceive that he was tough enough to survive 9 months of mood swings... I seem to get them badly for 24 hours when I'm ovulating... he will never survive 9 months.. I even annoy myself! hahahah

Hi guys, think ill be hopping over to this bus permanently soon. Poas and bfn and got mild period pain so doubt it'll be long before she rears her ugly head. Cd29 at the mo. so fed up with this. I just. Want. To. Be. Fecking. Pregnant.

sazzababs Mon 26-Nov-12 16:22:19

Hello all smile

I've been on various buses this year, moved over to the February Grad thread/Facecrack but had a mmc at the 'magical' 12 week scan in August :/ Been trying again since, but no luck so far. I was a week late this month and stupidly got my hopes up, only for the red bitch to FINALLY make an appearance today :'( Thought it was a late birthday baby present lol.

Sooooooo, CD1, bottle of wine in fridge and gonna mope for a few hours then slap myself across the face with a wet kipper! I'd quite like to have a celebratory Xmas this year and y'all sound like a lovely bunch, so I'm gonna leave the thread I'm on and park meself on a seat with you guys if that's ok?
* Leaves homemade banana loaf and scurries away *

extracrunchy Mon 26-Nov-12 17:14:22

Ok I have a gross question...

On top of having just enjoyed a 24 hour vomiting virus I now also have thrush (sorry tmi). Obviously I'm not up for dtd if it's actually uncomfortable, but I've just got some Canesten combos (splashed out on the internal cream AND the pessary combo cos couldn't decide which to use) and my question is this...
Will taking the internal cream/pessary affect our chances? Will it kill/slow down sperm?? And which do you think is a better bet in this regard - internal cream or pessary that breaks down?

Thank you grin

extracrunchy Mon 26-Nov-12 17:15:16

P.S. hi sazza! Sorry to have greeted you with the thrush post....

TakingTheStairs Mon 26-Nov-12 17:32:00

Hi sazza So sorry to hear about your MC, park yourself down next to me (esp if you have my fav banana loaf!)

grin at extracrunchy's greeting you with a thrush Q!

I don't have an answer for you though extracrunchy.

I have horrific indigestion all day today and yesterday which I never get. Don't think it's a symtom this early on but I'll add it to my obsessive symptom spotting list anyway.

sazzababs Mon 26-Nov-12 18:03:22

Yay!

Hmmmmm, nae sure about whether it affects any spermies etc, but their website says this...

'It is probably not a good idea. If you’re treating a yeast infection, you should abstain from sex during the course of the treatment and cure (about 7 days). This way, your yeast infection will likely be cured and you will minimize the chance of transmitting the infection to your partner. In addition, Canesten® may reduce the effectiveness of some birth control methods, such as latex condoms, diaphragms and vaginal spermicides. This effect is temporary and occurs only during treatment. '

sazzababs Mon 26-Nov-12 18:04:10

Spooooo, missed the copy paste of the question!

'10. Is it okay to have sex while I’m using Canesten®?'

extracrunchy Mon 26-Nov-12 18:05:55

Thanks sazza! I really don't want to miss out on a chance this month though sad

sazzababs Mon 26-Nov-12 18:10:20

It does say that it affects birth control though! :D Hmmmmmm, maybe give NHS24 a wee call?

extracrunchy Mon 26-Nov-12 18:21:40

I reckon they'll be sensible and tell me to hold off till it's gone! TTC makes me mental.

Dexidoo Mon 26-Nov-12 18:35:51

Mmm banana bread thanks.

When I had thrush during shag week a couple of cycles ago I took the oral tablet rather than used a pessary. It cleared up pretty quickly.

sazzababs Mon 26-Nov-12 18:37:02

Urgh, TTC makes us ALL mental :/

extracrunchy Mon 26-Nov-12 18:39:30

dexi that was my first instinct but then I read on the leaflet you're not supposed to take it if you're pregnant or ttc

Dexidoo Mon 26-Nov-12 18:41:59

I think that advice is meant for the more casual TTCers! Us more hardcore ladies know exactly where we are in our cycle, and unless you actually are pregnant it can't do any harm.

extracrunchy Mon 26-Nov-12 19:06:36

Oh ok thank you!! Annoyingly Boots is now shut...

Cherrycherry Mon 26-Nov-12 19:33:01

Oh setay, how annoying about your friend,I think you are well within your rights to be annoyed, do what Taking says & tell her you've decided to stop ttc to conceive for a while until you've saved some or something.
Binary - I am sooooooo with you on the obsession with testing way too early!! I always do it & this time I even considered testing the day after dtd!!!! Wtf!! Ha ha!
TTC turns normal people into loonies!

shineypeacock Mon 26-Nov-12 19:38:00

taking indigestion was and still is one if the symptoms i have, that and tiredness oh yes and after BFP my bra got a bit tight!! Wishing all over here BFP's

navis176 Mon 26-Nov-12 19:58:05

Cherry and Binary - nice to know there are some other mental-POAS-far-too-soon people out there! Last month I felt like I spent the entire time peeing on sticks, whether opk or pt... I am determined to take the complete opposite approach this month and not pee on a single stick until I am late...

BinarySolo Mon 26-Nov-12 20:07:09

Hehe, I say that every month navis

extracrunchy Mon 26-Nov-12 20:22:03

Haha navis do you think you'll be able to stick with it?!
Does anyone else take vitamin b6? I have a short LP and was told it could help. I'm a bit reluctant to pop too many pills...

BinarySolo Mon 26-Nov-12 20:38:21

Eat Marmite?

weechops Mon 26-Nov-12 20:42:27

I have hopped off the November bus a bit early since I have horrendous PMT which means evil af is on her way sad So I will pop myself down on a seat near the back as next af is probably due around the 30th december. Maybe the Christmas magic will work for me this month? Onto cycle 7 sad

shineypeacock thanks! that's good to hear (iykwim!)

I seem to have a trapped nerve in my hip. Standing up after sitting down is so painful.. and I know it's not a symptom. It's just a PITA! Going to see if I can get a physio appointment for today since it's day three of pain.

How is everyone this morning?

Sorelip Tue 27-Nov-12 10:18:08

Hi all. I'm hopping on the bus again. This is cycle 1, and will be testing on 11th December. We were originally going to wait until January, but that has gone out of the window.

setayharas Tue 27-Nov-12 12:03:31

Oh pink sorry she got u!!
It's the Xmas month now! Best Xmas present ever hopefully!
Someone told me that full fat milk and dairy is good for fertility so sitting eating a tub of Cornish ice cream. Anything to help ay!
How is everyone?
Feeling quite positive about this month, this is the month oh wanted to conceive as we r in Lille in France around ov day. Fx

padster75 Tue 27-Nov-12 12:04:46

Ooooh I found you again. Been busy working sulking about just about everyone I know getting upduffed ..... and 1 friend with twins grrrrr got 2 minutes to spare to baggsie a seat and wave to all

Cycle 2 Cd12 BFP oh god have no idea brain hurting today probably about the 13th ish .........

MrsTwinks Tue 27-Nov-12 12:37:50

Day 3 of dull cramping here with no sign of AF (and I'm obsessed I even TMI got dh to check) so looking hopeful

Just to be sure I might squirt some superglue up there so it stays put wink

BinarySolo Tue 27-Nov-12 12:54:50

I had very slight cramping yesterday, and a pink tinge to a small amount of cm today, but am trying not to get my hopes up as this is exactly the sort of shit my body does to me then a day or 2 after I'm due on along comes bastard af. I'm not bitter...

TakingTheStairs Tue 27-Nov-12 13:58:25

MrsTwinks..what do you mean you got your DH to check for signs of AF? Do you mean what I think you mean?

Creamtea1 Tue 27-Nov-12 14:03:55

Mrs twinks and binary - please may I join in the poas lunatics gang? Seriously, they are a curse. And it's because of the cheapies! I would never entertain weeing on a ten pound note, but of course it's ok to test at 8 fricking dpo if the things only cost like £2 for 10 of them!!! Noo!!
Today I did an opk and a hpt at the same time, just why? Then I resumed life as a supposed fairly switched on, stable non lunatic woman!
Obviously both tests were neg. just why did I do it?!

MrsTwinks Tue 27-Nov-12 14:05:23

takingthestairs depends how rude you are wink

I mean as in, are my knickers still white... I mean I see white but am I being hopeful

Creamtea1 Tue 27-Nov-12 14:05:46

Also would like to add mad googling of every single tiny symptom (per day past ov) as well to the mad early testing.

MrsTwinks Tue 27-Nov-12 14:15:38

Im not so bad today with the poas thing. I'm off Friday so I tell myself it'll be nicer to find out and sit at home all day than be at work so I should be able to hold out until then. Googling however I refuse to comment

TakingTheStairs Tue 27-Nov-12 15:26:42

MrsTwinks I thought you meant you used a method that may involve a torch and looking!shock grin

I'm going to hold off until Thursday to poas, if AF doesn't arrive by then. I have some CB non digital sticks and I don't think they're super sensitive, so no point testing ahead of time.

fx fx fx fx fx fx fx fx for us all!

BinarySolo Tue 27-Nov-12 16:59:26

Hello creamtea you absolute maniac! Of course you can join nutters corner. Maybe there should be a support group for us poasa maybe! I too have done opk and pregnancy tests at the same time. Despite what people tell you google is not your friend! It's just another thing to just obsessively look for 'the sign' with.

Tempted to set up a website called 'am I knocked up?' And make it like an online magic 8 ball. I'd use it, but then we've established I've lost the plot slightly on this issue.

I'm fed uuuuuuuupppppppp!!!! Still got mild period pain and still no af! Why can she just not show her ugly face so I can get on with the next cycle. I've had this before with cramps several days before af so I know I've got no chance so lets just get the show on the road. Rant rant rant. Plus I have a sore throat and feel like shit so thoroughly fed up. Aargh.
Sorry just had to get that off my chest.

extracrunchy Tue 27-Nov-12 17:10:54

binary there's a site called two week wait where you can list your symptoms and people vote on whether you're pregnant or not! Mad.

JellyCurls Tue 27-Nov-12 17:39:00

You ladies are all a bit mad, in the nicest possible way. I am loving your obsessive symptom spotting. I am telling myself that it wont be me but it will just got ages to wait and need af to bugger off first.

extracrunchy Tue 27-Nov-12 17:44:25

According to my Clearblue digital I still haven't O'd (day 21, 32-4 day cycle). Humph. Also still really uncomfortable down there blush Guess it's not our month.

Creamtea1 Tue 27-Nov-12 18:15:30

Crunchy I have already been on that site, a lot! I am very obsessed with all of this...it's madness but I can't stop!

frogchops Tue 27-Nov-12 18:20:10

Oh my!! In making a conscious effort not to look at that site. I know I'll get hooked!! Funny though at how completely batshit mental we all become!!
Have purchased some ov sticks but now I duno what to do with them its cd 10 for me tomorrow, too early to test for ov? I'm only on cycle 2 after pill so I duno how long my cycle might be, last one was 30 days. If there's a line but not as dark, do you class that as a negative?

BinarySolo Tue 27-Nov-12 18:42:36

I think you test from day 9 or at least that's the instructions I had.

I have no pregnancy test left and intend not to buy any until af is 2 days late. Otherwise I'm going to end up spending enough money to solely finance the Chinese factory where they're being produced.

Hmmm let's see if I stick to my word!

setayharas Tue 27-Nov-12 20:15:04

Soo been out for dinner with oh had a couple of glasses of wine! Loving the symptom spotting stories I defiantly need to be involved in that group!
Actually had to lay out topless in the sofa last month and get oh to check every inch of my nipples as I was sure I could see a change in the amount of veins I had! Needless to say he didn't agree but I was adament!

extracrunchy Tue 27-Nov-12 20:16:05

Haha setay bet he loved that!

Creamtea1 Tue 27-Nov-12 20:27:16

Frog the second line needs to be darker than the control line (or the same colour) anything lighter is supposed to be a negative.

setayharas Tue 27-Nov-12 21:04:35

Haha he didn't complain anyway!

Just wondering I'll ovulate around 9th dec and on 15th it's my work Xmas party followed by a club trip. no-one at work knows I'm ttc so I'm
Wondering would it b safe to go have a drink then? Or is that completely selfish. I know if I did conceive it probably wouldn't even have implanted at that point but I can't help think I shouldn't b considering drinking aswell as conceiving

Creamtea1 Tue 27-Nov-12 21:11:19

Setay you should go - don't put your life on hold! And we all know that the month you go on a big night out and drink your own body weight in Rose/vodka is of course the month when you will get a bfp smile

setayharas Tue 27-Nov-12 21:26:04

Thanks made me feel a bit better, I was all up for faking a kidney infection if I thoUght I could b up duff then I realised I always even when I wasn't ttc thought I was up the duff lol

extracrunchy Tue 27-Nov-12 22:17:55

Definitely go setay! It'll probably mean you're lucky this month wink

extracrunchy Tue 27-Nov-12 22:19:58

Right - how's this for mental (about to lower the tone by about 12 storeys, so brace yourself):

DH and I, so concerned with the thought of wasting an egg this month by not dtd while I'm suffering with horrible thrush (sorry ladies) have developed an entirely new "love making" technique whereby he erm enjoys himself almost to completion and then deposits his specimen at the last minute.

I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS HAS ACTUALLY JUST HAPPENED TO ME IN REAL LIFE

MrsTwinks Tue 27-Nov-12 23:00:00

extracrunchy I've done heard similar to that before

may have had slight issue with painful hip & dh taking too long at perfect time

setayharas Wed 28-Nov-12 07:59:35

Extra crunchy this sounds perfect for them times I just can't stay awake when he's on late shit, do he's thing and just wake me up at the last minute!

chookford Wed 28-Nov-12 08:35:22

lol Extra I have just spat tea across my desk reading that! Bloody good way to get around the problem though! grin

TakingTheStairs Wed 28-Nov-12 10:12:54

extra you are hilarious!!!

AF due tmr for me. Light cramps have started today, poop, but I'm still clinging on stupidly to hope until AF actually arrives. And if she does, at least it means I'll be able to take the hard drugs for my back pain.

Cd1 for me today so new stats quietninjatardis cycle 7 bfp due around 27th dec based on his cycle length. Fuck.

quiet sorry the witch got you. But channelling all the christmas magic for an end of month bfp smile

taking i feel for you with the back pain. Hopefully a nice bfp will take your mind off it smile

As for me, well I am suffering through another migraine today. Weirdly typing and looking at the computer seems to take the edge off the pain confused And I ran out of painkillers today so wasn't happy trudging to the chemist to get some, thumping head with every step. Ah well, can only get better I guess!

TakingTheStairs Wed 28-Nov-12 11:29:46

ouchy weechops, I hope your migraine eases up soon.
Will a slice of fesh cream Victoria sponge help?

pinkbuttons Wed 28-Nov-12 11:52:35

Hello everyone, am afraid I am going to have to jump off the bus sad DH and I have decided to take a month off, I have just had to delay my graduation until September so getting pregnant this month wouldnt be very sensible. Very frustrating but will be keeping an eye out for the January thread and desperately hoping for a little "surprise" my heart is desperate to try but my head and more strongly DH is against trying this month.
Good luck to you all!! In a lovely way I hope none of you make it to the January thread xxx

TakingTheStairs Wed 28-Nov-12 12:26:13

Sorry to see you go Pinkbuttons even if you're not ttc this month, please come back and say hi every now and again

chookford Wed 28-Nov-12 13:14:34

Sorry to hear that Pink but hope that everything works out as you want it too!! smile

sparkle101 Wed 28-Nov-12 13:20:08

Sorry to hear that pink.

Okay, wise words of mumsnet needed please. I am 17 dpo and think I ovulated around 12-14, been dtd a lot this month but I have now come down with d and v. Will this affect my chances or would the business already been done?

Thanks guys. I've got my fx too.
Sorry to see you go pink.
Fx for everyone else too.

TakingTheStairs Wed 28-Nov-12 14:05:44

I've no idea sparkle but didn't want to leave you unanswered. Hopefully someone more knowledgable will be along soon

extracrunchy Wed 28-Nov-12 14:12:19

Oh sparkle not you too... Apparently it's all over the country. I had it and still haven't ovulated (2 days late), I think as a result. Being poorly can affect ovulation but it shouldn't do any harm if you've already fertilized an egg. In fact I read somewhere if your immune system is already a bit low fighting off a bug, sperm survive longer in there smile

MrsTwinks Wed 28-Nov-12 14:21:46

Ok so now 11dpo. More cramping (4 days now) but no AF and some light nausea but not too bad. Don't want to be too hopeful but given 4 days of this I think little-twinks is burrowing in nicely. I had cramps all the way through last time but these are stronger so hopefully the superglue worked. wink

I cracked, I got 4 tests at superdrug at lunch but I pinky swear not to use them until Friday

Maybe

I'll try

Creamtea1 Wed 28-Nov-12 15:07:31

Oh please twink do a test so you can join my testing madness!
11dpo is plenty smile

TakingTheStairs Wed 28-Nov-12 15:37:41

Twink I'll poas tomorrow morning if you do...go on!

Haylebop12 Wed 28-Nov-12 15:40:14

hi fellow passengers, just popping back on the bus for a nosey at what everyone is up to and an update.

<passes round brownies grin>

sparkle I dont know the answer to your question but personally think it would be unlikely to have a massive effect. I do hope not anyway.

pink sorry to hear about your delay but hopefully it feels right to wait? my pg that i misscarried was due 27/12, a week after all my uni work was due in, including dissertation and when I thought about it being ready to pop and finishing off assignments filled me with dread as I know how stressed I would be. Although saying that I am now stressing about getting pg when I should be doing uni stuff hmm

MrsTwinks I have my FX for you! sounds promising if you have had cramps for that long and no sign of AF.

quiet sorry AF got you, what a bitch turning up like that!

Well my new approach of not doing opks or even thinking about what cd I am isn't working so well as I have spotted a bit of EWCM. roughly cd 11/12?

However, I am in THE worst mood ever, dont know why, i have pretty much bit DHs head off everytime hes spoke to me the last 2 days so who knows how Im gonna get him to do naughtys! I dont even want him near me! hmm I am hoping the distraction of that and planning our house move in jan will go well for us this month. Also will get out of actually helping move because i could possibly be 8 weeks by middle of jan and more than likely suffering extreme hyperermesis! YAY! (to not having to help, not the sickness sad)

Its getting really close now to when my baby should have been born (4 weeks to be exact) so thats not really helping. Ho hum!

Think putting the tree up this weekend will do us all good.

MrsTwinks Wed 28-Nov-12 18:00:39

I might see how ill i feel in morning then test. I suppose if its bfn it'd only be cos it's too early right? wink I'm doing the very bad getting all excited thing, might have already laid the 'might need to go to the doctor and get some antibiotics for this chest' thing at work (Xmas do next week)

Preposteroushypothesis Wed 28-Nov-12 18:23:50

Hello everyone, can I jump on what must be one of the last seats on the bus? Long time lurker here, just joined the JSing thread and thought I would join the fun here too. I'm having my coil out tomorrow so will be trying for number 2 from then (not sure how likely it is the first month after coil removal, anyone experienced this?). I have one DD so far who will be 2 on Monday.

Couldn't work out how to select the checklist on my phone but here are my deets!
Preposteroushypothesis: cycle 1, BFP due 26th dec

Good luck for all those who will be POAS soon, I'd never heard of these Internet cheapies you can bulk buy before coming on here and am desperately trying to resist buying loads so that I don't get addicted!!

Cherrycherry Wed 28-Nov-12 19:28:05

creamtea don't worry I joined your poas madness several days ago when I poas at 8dpo, what on earth was I expecting then?! It was even in the middle of the day!! I think I need to go to poas anonymous!

twinks & Taking - I'm pretty sure I'm going to poas tomorrow morning. Its my birthday tomorrow though so not def sure its a good idea but that's not going to stop me eek!

sparkle101 Wed 28-Nov-12 20:17:50

Thank you!!! I can't seem to find it anywhere on google so hoping my ill state will be more accommodating for the sperm, there must be a silver lining to feeling this bad!!!

It does however say that diahorrea is one of first signs of pregnancy but even I can't justify 3 dpo as being pregnant!

Haylebop12 Wed 28-Nov-12 20:19:16

Opk question...

If I have had first bit of ewcm today should I expect a positive ovu test?

MrsTwinks Wed 28-Nov-12 20:23:47

sparkle is that true? urm... ok I might have to POAS tomorrow then

Creamtea1 Wed 28-Nov-12 21:00:33

Yes cherry - I poas 8dpo too and it was during my lunchtime tea break so completely pointless - but still did it anyway !
Glad too see its not just me smile
I poas and I'm proud hee hee

paah Thu 29-Nov-12 06:17:53

Think its time to shift my arse onto the December bus as I can hear the cackle of AF heading my way today regular as clockwork we're seriously going to fall out soon

Paah cycle 8 bfp due 24th Dec

creamtea probably not allowed to say this cos it sounds like advertising and more seriously may lead to a poas addiction but smefertility have ics mega cheap and free delivery, think its 30 for 2.59- beware! I love a bargain though!

Hi busmates!!

TakingTheStairs Thu 29-Nov-12 07:03:01

Morning all!

paah I hopped on to the Nov bus looking for you but here you are smile
I poas this morning but bfn. AF would be due today (maybe tmr). No sign of either a bfn or the witch.

haylebop I would think so, I nearly always am in a horrific mood te day before I get a positive opk.

MrsTwinks Thu 29-Nov-12 07:22:28

So now bfp, but it ain't over till there's a pink line somewhere

JellyCurls Thu 29-Nov-12 07:29:21

Congratulations mrstwinks hope this is a sign of another lucky bus

CD 9 for me and am still waiting on the witch to disappear. Is it not cruel enough that I have 40 day cycles without her then hanging about for almost a fortnight. I think I will be off the healthy eating and back at the vending machine before the day is out angry

Cherrycherry Thu 29-Nov-12 07:41:51

I poas this too but bfn. Am hoping its just too soon but we'll see.

MrsTwinks Thu 29-Nov-12 07:45:41

Whoops. Typo/autocorrect fail. Bfn sad but overwhelming need to vomit grin

extracrunchy Thu 29-Nov-12 07:54:29

Oops mrstwinks that's a bad typo!! What day are you now?

MrsTwinks Thu 29-Nov-12 08:04:10

12 dpo. I have form for bfp turning up very late after missed period so not too worried

My iPhone certainly believes I'm pregnant blush

extracrunchy Thu 29-Nov-12 08:14:21

Yeah isn't over yet! How does your iPhone know??!

LoveBeingAMrs Thu 29-Nov-12 08:25:49

Hey, can i join the bus? Should be ovulating this monday 3rd then due for testing on dec 17th! 2nd month ttc!

Cherrycherry Thu 29-Nov-12 08:25:51

ha Mrs twinks, love that your phone thinks your pg! Was a bit confused by your earlier post! Things are sounding promising for you though so fx.

I've got sure boobs this morning but don't know if that means af is on her way over to me on her broomstick . I've never suffered with any form of sore boobs apart from bf 'ing my dd but I'm pretty sure I got sore boobs a couple off months ago just before af. Boooooo :-(

Its my birthday today so perhaps I'll enjoy a glass of wine tonight after all although I know what I'd prefer.

Well I feel like shit! Bad throat, head and cold type thing as well as af which luckily seems to be very light and almost pain free which is good as normally doubled over with pain by now. Am guessing that when it gets heavier the pain will hit already fallen out with evil af am in bed feeling sorry for myself. Ds at nursery today so I'm going to try and sleep as feel really pants <pathetic emoticon>
Fx for all the poastickers! I get my ic and opk from sme fertility too. Free postage and dirt cheap. and only a quid if you want to upgrade to first class

Happy birthday cherry!

Oh and biscuit for jellycurl cos sod it sometimes you need a biscuit instead of a carrot.

Cherrycherry Thu 29-Nov-12 08:36:57

Thank you quiet -sorry to hear you are feeling rubbish, hope you get a nice relaxing day today to recoup. At least you feel crap while the witch is around so you're not wasting precious dtd opportunities!

TakingTheStairs Thu 29-Nov-12 09:07:54

BFN this morning, proper AF cramps and sugar craving.. I think I can be fairly sure that AF is on her bitchy stupid ass stink way.
Oh and I think we can add feeling moody to my list. smile

Cherrycherry Thu 29-Nov-12 09:09:47

Ok, have just taken my earlier bfn test out of the bin (what am I resorting to?!) & there is now a line! Its a clear blue test where it makes a + for bfp, there was not a line there when I did the test 3 hours ago but the line does look blue not grey. Trying and failing not to get my hopes up

MrsTwinks Thu 29-Nov-12 09:40:57

cherry just test tomorrow. It ain't over till the witch arrives anyway

I took the test apart and then chucked in outside bin to remove the temptation to look again when I got home. Never go back it messes with your head wink

Cherrycherry Thu 29-Nov-12 09:44:51

Yes I should learn to start doing that!

TakingTheStairs Thu 29-Nov-12 09:47:27

cherry I'm fairly sure it says in the CB leaflets that come with the tests that if you get a bfn within the stated time frame to ignore any lines that may develop later as they aren't valid.

BinarySolo Thu 29-Nov-12 12:06:50

preposturoushypothesis are you a FOTC fan perchance? Good name!

Right. Symptom spotting: had cramps- could be early sign of af. Mild diarrhoea. Bleeding gums. Sore boobs - but I'm blaming ds and his new bf'ing technique. People's smells on the bus made me feel queasy the other day!

Have ordered some tests. Have saved first pee of day in case they arrive today. AF due on Monday. Fx but not getting my hopes up.

sazzababs Thu 29-Nov-12 12:16:46

Hey every peeps!
Happy Birthday Cherry! Hop you have a good day, was my birthday last week so I dyed some of my hair bright red to stave off the old-niss :D

CD 4 here, still full of the cold and wondering if Alex Salmond would be interested in what I'm hacking up :/ In-law siblings are cheesing me off just now as they appear to find it appropriate to keep posting pics of my wee newborn nephew on my Facecrack... A block later and they seem to have disappeared... Me? I'm nae bitter! Evil face

Creamtea1 Thu 29-Nov-12 13:45:46

Ffs I think I've got my period, 10 days early! It was due on the 9th dec. Today is cd26 I think, I got very strong positive opk on cd16 and cd17 and then a weaker (positive) on cd18.
WTAF !

TakingTheStairs Thu 29-Nov-12 13:54:17

CreamTea1... 10 days early? Could that be implantation bleeding?

Creamtea1 Thu 29-Nov-12 13:59:14

I don't know stairs, this is a bit of brown but a couple spots of red - my cycles have been 38/36/35 so if this is af on cd26 that makes a 25 day cycle, and I've always been a long cycle person.

extracrunchy Thu 29-Nov-12 14:13:16

Sounds like implantation to me!!
I have NO idea where I am with my cycle this month. CBFM said "high" from day 9, so expected O, now at day 23, still no O, AF due around day 33 although god knows to tbh...

Creamtea1 Thu 29-Nov-12 14:21:40

Am going to be checking every half hour at this rate, was just a bit more blood when I wiped, as well as cm (clear) and now of course I have twinges in abdomen like af but then again have been having them since cd15. I did a hpt (not a sensitive one) and its neg.

sazzababs Thu 29-Nov-12 14:29:58

Ooooh! Fingers crossed CreamTea!

MrsTwinks Thu 29-Nov-12 14:39:11

creamtea I found the same earlier. FX for both of us - mine was very obviously old blood so hoping no more. I'm still cramping so the way that's going I should have had more than tiny bit. Instead I feel very sick

Creamtea1 Thu 29-Nov-12 15:03:37

Right I've got a cup of tea, big piece of cake, toilet roll in my pants, and I shall wait it out hmm

BinarySolo Thu 29-Nov-12 15:08:32

My tests arrived. Did it and got a bfn. Oh well. I suppose on the plus sides won't need to lie about why I'm not drinking over Xmas. So now it's time to await the red bitch to arrive. Staying on the bus though as next period after this one will be due on 31st December so maybe will get some very happy new year news. If not I shall get very pissed!

BinarySolo Thu 29-Nov-12 15:09:42

Good luck creamtea and mrstwinks fx for both of you.

Creamtea1 Thu 29-Nov-12 15:12:29

Staying on the bus too as if this is af then next period due boxing day. Will just eat enough food over Xmas to appear pregnant by January anyway.
I seriously don't know how people long term cope with this, it's only cycle 3 for me and it's driving me insane!
Big admiration for anyone who's been doing this a while.

Creamtea1 Thu 29-Nov-12 15:35:54

And twinks keep me posted! I've ran out of tests until the postman brings the amazon cheapies. Probably a good thing!

extracrunchy Thu 29-Nov-12 15:43:36

twinks and creamtea if it is implantation there's no point testing yet as you need to have been implanted several days before there's enough hCG to show up.

extracrunchy Thu 29-Nov-12 15:45:13

binary don't give up yet! It's still quite early to test.

BinarySolo Thu 29-Nov-12 15:54:24

Thanks extracrunchy as ever the voice of reason! Just had a bit of a cry. Can't believe how disappointed I am this time. Have been cheered up by my 18 month old ds dancing to Rapper's Delight!

Creamtea1 Thu 29-Nov-12 16:29:30

It's definetly af here. Never had a 25 day cycle before ever, but anyway on to cycle 4.
Still on the bus, bfp now due 26 dec

BinarySolo Thu 29-Nov-12 17:01:46

Sorry to hear that creamtea. Fingers crossed for later this month.

annaloulou Thu 29-Nov-12 17:21:32

hey guys smile havent been able to get on for a while, hope you are all good?

well I have been poas since 8dpo and yesterday got a bfp!!! I did initially think it was a vapo line as it was so light, but sure enough got a light line this am too! Im really nervous tho as i had mmc last month sad

But im also optimistic grin

annaloulou Thu 29-Nov-12 17:22:41

sorry creamtea, should have read before posting sad

BinarySolo Thu 29-Nov-12 17:26:30

Congratulations Annaloulou! I think you're the first.

annaloulou Thu 29-Nov-12 17:33:04

Thank you Binary only oh knows in rl, as im scared blush

BinarySolo Thu 29-Nov-12 17:38:55

Excitement got the better of me when I was expecting ds so I told my parents who in turn told people meaning I had to ring and tell everyone before someone blurted it out on Facebook! Will be keeping it between me and dh for quite a while this time when it eventually happens!

annaloulou Thu 29-Nov-12 17:43:37

Im scared because I jumped the gun last time (although didnt get my bfp until af was due), and then mmc so had to tell everyone we had lost it...that was not fun sad

This time (fx all is ok) we are goin to try and wait a while...

BinarySolo Thu 29-Nov-12 17:47:48

I understand. Must have been horrible for you. Fingers crossed everything will be ok this time.

annaloulou Thu 29-Nov-12 17:50:23

Thank you Binary Im goin to stay on the bus for a while...if thats ok with everyone

paah Thu 29-Nov-12 17:53:23

I'm defo on this bus, the witch is here in full force. Could someone add me to this list please, don't have the brain power for anything today

Paah cycle 8 bfp due 24th Dec

taking I was so hopeful for you this month! Stupid AF ruining our fun. We can keep each other company when there's noone left on the bus again!

Trying to find some positives today but ttc is so incredibly draining. I just want to yell "I'm still not bloody pregnant!" at everyone that pissed me off today (and that's a lot of people!)

extracrunchy Thu 29-Nov-12 18:41:54

Sorry to hear about AF getting you creamtea and paah fx for this month. At least some of Christmas can be relatively naughty!

extracrunchy Thu 29-Nov-12 18:42:41

annaloulou I think you are the first on here!! Congrats grin

Dexidoo Thu 29-Nov-12 19:15:49

Congrats annalou, lets hope that is the first of many for the bus dwellers.

I have managed to stay calm, as planned, this week. No opk's but pretty sure I ov'd yesterday and DTD a few times in preceding days. Am hoping to continue the calm vibe and not get any HPTs either.

Sadly my cosmic rebalancing has had a negative effect on the healthy diet/ no alcohol plan but never mind.

Preposteroushypothesis Thu 29-Nov-12 20:01:03

It is indeed a FOTC reference binary, I see you are also a fan! fx it's just early testing and you will still get your bfp this month!

Congratulations annaloulou, sorry to hear about your mmc, fx for a sticky bean smile

I am well and truly on the bus now as my coil is out, hoping that the nurse was right when she kept insisting that I was 'instantly fertile' and am I sure I don't want condoms as I can get pregnant straight away. Strange as I had told her that we are taking it out because we want to ttc!

Hmmm posting fail....

Cherrycherry Thu 29-Nov-12 21:22:39

creamtea sorry the witch got you.

binary - I'm the same as you, I've done 2 tests today & both bfn. Am going to poas with fmu tomorrow & if still bfn then I'm going to accept it with tears & just enjoy my weekend.

annaloulou - congratulations, that's great news. I really hope everything goes well.

Pixie001 Thu 29-Nov-12 22:19:14

paah sorry to hear AF has got you <offers wine>
creamtea better that AF has come early so you get to stay on the Dec bus than keep you hanging on but v strange it being so early. ...and i was moaning at mine being 3 days early!
hope all goes well annaloulou congratulations - let's hope it's a positive sign (ha ha) for this Dec bus!
taking, binary and cherry still keeping my fingers crossed for you
AF finally buggered off and i'm in the boring phase. opks have arrived (thks frogchops) so i'll give them a try in a few days to just check what my cycle's doin.

BinarySolo Fri 30-Nov-12 08:28:22

Well AF is due Monday. Will retest on Tuesday if not here. I'm going to try and ignore it until then and not torture myself with more tests! I'm not hopeful of either my chances of being pregnant or my ability to resist testing....

MrsTwinks Fri 30-Nov-12 09:15:12

ok this one might get a bit TMI but help?

I started spotting yesterday, now its got a bit more but its all dark and stringy (?) and still not much. I NEVER spot normally but when I have once or twice its literally been a few spots of red then nothing for a day or two before AF. This seems continuous. Still hope or am I looking at new years eve bfp?

Creamtea1 Fri 30-Nov-12 10:26:52

Twinks I think still hope until it turns to red af type ''new' blood
Fx for you!

TakingTheStairs Fri 30-Nov-12 11:06:03

morning all,

paah and pixie thanks so much thanks
Congratulations annaloulou, that's wonderful news.

Still no sign of AF but also BFNs so it's on the way. I'm okay with that though tbh. I'm having a horrific time with my back so now at least I can take the super strong drugs smile

twinks I second what Creamtea1 said. Fx for you

setayharas Fri 30-Nov-12 11:43:54

Hey everyone! So it's finally the weekend. Got the oh whole family joining us for Sunday dinner this weekend so quite glad of a glass of wine or two.
Af has finally left me alone so it's now time to start the opk and get doing the bd! Wooohoo

MrsEasingwood Fri 30-Nov-12 11:47:11

First time ttc but will be testing in just a few days so excited can barely keep it to myself! grin

Griffomais Fri 30-Nov-12 12:38:37

Ah well dreams shattered again today - thanks AF you witch! On to month 27 I go - this is absolutely draining this month is by far the worst. My BFP is never coming sad.

How is everyone else feeling today?

Ah griffo I'm so sorry. Makes my paltry nearly 7 months a bit lame really. Huge hugs for you and hope the new year will make all your dreams true.

MrsTwinks Fri 30-Nov-12 14:37:59

defo the witch here :'( oh well at least not massively late so a chance of a new year bfp. actually had a full on proper cry. Doesn't help that me and DH are now officially the only childless/not pregnant couple we know.

Thanks

Sorry to hear af arrived griff, all good here despite hearing this morning that one of my school friends took her own life yesterday.

Here's to a happy and fruitfull (ahem) weekend for us all

x

Creamtea1 Fri 30-Nov-12 15:03:03

Sorry to hear that twinks. It will be our month in dec, let's hope. See you back here for symptom spotting in a couple of weeks x

TakingTheStairs Fri 30-Nov-12 15:22:41

I'm officially on the bus now. Stupid witch. Ah well. If anyone is on a pc and is doing an update can you pls change my BFP due date to Dec 27th.
Welcome to the bus Mrs Easingwood

Fx for the best Christmas present ever for all of us

extracrunchy Fri 30-Nov-12 15:29:42

Has anyone ever had a month using opks/CBFM when they had no positive for O? I had a tummy bug near O time but don't know why I wouldn't have had an egg otherwise as I'm usually pretty regular. And I'm sure I has EWCM.
Any pearls of wisdom?

extracrunchy Fri 30-Nov-12 15:46:18

*had

TakingTheStairs Fri 30-Nov-12 16:11:35

extracrunchy I havent personally but one of my best friends who is ttc had that situation. Had ewcm. No positive result on her opk sticks at all. AF was almost 2 wks late. She went to doc and doc said sometimes ov doesn't happen for a random reason. AF was late because of the lack of ov, but everything went back to normal the cycles after that random one

BinarySolo Fri 30-Nov-12 16:26:45

I now have brownish cm so think that af must be on her way. Bums. Oh well I shall have a nice boozey Xmas after 2 sober ones due to pregnancy and breast feeding. Every cloud and all that!

So, BinarySolo cycle 9 BFP due 31st dec

extracrunchy Fri 30-Nov-12 16:32:04

Thanks *taking. I also just started taking vitamin b6. Do you think that would cause really late O?

Sorry to hear that binary - a good month not to be pregnant though I suppose.

extracrunchy Fri 30-Nov-12 16:32:36

(*taking*)

paah Fri 30-Nov-12 16:43:16

In the nicest possible way I am really disappointed to see so many of my old friends on here, surely there's some clever statistics that suggest its our turn?! Muchos gracias for the wine and flowers pixie and taking wine is defo on the cards tonight!

My day has been pretty blah, my life seems fairly blah atm tbh. There's 3 or 4 things that are just pending and any one of those changes would make life a whole lot better a bfp in particular Ah well, at least I'm not 2wwing as well!

Cherrycherry Fri 30-Nov-12 17:04:25

padster so sorry to hear about your friend. I hope you are ok.

Sorry to everyone who has been got by the witch. I'm pretty sure mine will arrive soon too, I've done 4hpt in last 2 days & completely bfn sad but on the good side I am going out tomorrow night & there will be lots of alcohol so at least I can drown my sorrows.

padster75 Fri 30-Nov-12 20:37:07

Thanks Cherry just a bit shell shocked. Fingers crossed you get a BFP on your next stick. I'm just starting the TWW (grrrrrrrr) and trying to pretend that Christmas isn't on the doorstep and tomorrow will be October so that I have enough time to be organised .........

Pixie001 Fri 30-Nov-12 20:49:05

We've just come back from friday date night..at sainsburys. Lovely bottle of red on special offer so I'm guzzling sipping away. so for you bfns be quick with a glass <offers wine> and soothe your sorrows. And then tomorrow is a new hangover day smile

okavango Sat 01-Dec-12 07:12:06

Morning all, please help yourselves to the advent calendar choccy, there's an endless supply on MN!

No sign of anything yet, I have tested twice both bfns but no af. Didn't even try that hard but still obsessing! At least in hotel for DH's works Christmas party so will be busy chatting trying to think of anything to say to his colleagues and the WAGS

Hope you all have nice weekends too.

extracrunchy Sat 01-Dec-12 15:59:53

Hi okavango where is everyone?! Do you reckon they're all hung over?
I'm day 25 no O still but loads of EWCM. Reckon it'll happen in next few days, but not sure how viable an egg that old will be...

BinarySolo Sat 01-Dec-12 16:11:06

Af is here. 3 days early! Quite pleased actually as I can give myself a rest from the endless testing! Boozey Xmas ahoy.

<breaks out the advocat and gin>

Cherrycherry Sat 01-Dec-12 16:25:39

Sorry to hear that binary but like you say you know where you stand now & you can enjoy a drink or 5. I wish my af would just start now, am sure its on its way soon.

Have a nice Saturday night everyone whatever you're doing. wine for me grin

BinarySolo Sat 01-Dec-12 19:30:38

wine for me too! grin

Mu51cal Sun 02-Dec-12 09:39:49

Hi everyone! Please may I hop onboard?! I have mince pies & mulled wine to share! I'm on cycle 3 after a mc, bfp due dec 30th (just in time for nye - which will therefore be completely sober or the total opposite winebrew)

Does anyone have any idea how often we should be dtd in order to maximise our chances of conceiving?

Good luck everyone!

extracrunchy Sun 02-Dec-12 15:13:02

Welcome mu51cal!

BinarySolo Sun 02-Dec-12 19:17:35

Hi mu51cal. From what I've read it's best to dtd every other day regardless of whether or not you're ovulating. Having said that, I conceived my ds on a month were we only dtd once as we were living with my parents at the time.

paah Sun 02-Dec-12 20:29:22

Has someone drugged the cake?!? Can't believe a busload of hormonal women is so quiet!

Aquarius1 Sun 02-Dec-12 20:54:46

paah I reckon it's cos we're all huddled next to their fires /radiators trying to keep warm. or watching x factor / strictly results!

Hi binary I hope I have some of luck you had- we managed it a few times last wk leading up to, and on day of, positive but not since... Waiting til next wk to poas...

Aquarius1 Sun 02-Dec-12 20:56:29

Oops should read positive opk ..

extracrunchy Sun 02-Dec-12 21:03:03

Where is everyone?! Tell me what to do!

I'm using CBFM, currently day 26, and have had no positive ovulation yet. Usually O around day 20. I do have EWCM today and yesterday. Should I assume I haven't ovulated and it's coming late? Or that I'm not going to this month? Or that test has missed it?
And should I keep bd'ing? I'm tired!! CBFM has been giving me high readings since day 9 so we've been at it AGES!

Hope you've all had lovely weekends smile

Griffomais Sun 02-Dec-12 21:35:40

Hey Crunchy you sound a bit knackered lol! If I were you and you have any energy left give it another couple of goes. Wishing you lots of luck grin.x

extracrunchy Sun 02-Dec-12 21:39:58

Hi griffo thank you! I am a bit knackered tbh. This weird month is driving me CRAZY confused

Griffomais Sun 02-Dec-12 21:43:26

This has been a weird month all round I think. It's just so tough - I've spent last two weeks in deep despair. Can't keep doing this to myself so I'm taking next couple of months off - to preserve my sanity and my marriage. How long have you been TTC?

extracrunchy Sun 02-Dec-12 21:56:21

Yeah I'm beginning to feel that might be a good idea for us too... We've been trying 9 months. This month feels higher pressure for obvious reasons!

Griffomais Sun 02-Dec-12 22:01:19

Well hopefully your time will come very soon - I really hope it does. I'm onto month 27 surely my time is near too. Think only options will be going private for IUI or IVF absolutely terrifies me!

extracrunchy Sun 02-Dec-12 22:14:10

Bloody hell I feel like I'm just making a fuss with 9 months! 27 months is rough. Do you know what might be causing it? What's your cycle like? You must be an absolute powerhouse sticking with it like that!

Griffomais Sun 02-Dec-12 22:39:40

I have a perfect 30 day cycle regular as clockwork had all the tests I am apparently a picture of health as is my husband and his little swimmers - we have been labelled with Unexplained Infertility - it sucks! Started TTC at 33 maybe I've just let it too late, I really don't know. It pretty much depresses me but I just can't give up so I keep soldiering on although at times it is so so hard.

deliasmithy Mon 03-Dec-12 00:51:29

Finally, after 10 weeks AF is arriving! Everything aching way unmerrily.
So fx for BFP on 31st Dec.
CBFM unwrapped and ready to roll.

okavango Mon 03-Dec-12 05:35:54

still nothing here, no af and bfn. I don't think it is happening this month tbh.

extracrunchy Mon 03-Dec-12 08:19:20

griffo that's so crappy.. Still, if you're both working perfectly it HAS to happen some time! xxx

extracrunchy Mon 03-Dec-12 08:20:37

okavango sorry to hear that sad At least you can have a relatively indulgent holidays though! X

padster75 Mon 03-Dec-12 10:33:28

Morning all,

Well into my 2ww, trying not to obsessively symptom spot fail, panicking because I have not done a thing for Christmas and feeling rather guilty about it, just cannot seem to get going with it all this year.

fx for those POAS and 'Merry' winesmile Christmas for those who've been visited by af

xx

Cherrycherry Mon 03-Dec-12 13:36:47

Hi ladies,
Good luck Padster, fx for you. Its so hard not to symptom spot isn't it. I always try and fail to keep myself so busy that I don't have time to think about it. Much easier said than done though!

Well I'm back to day 1 now sad af just started. disappointed but was expected, already had a cry last night because I knew we hadn't done it. Don't know why I expected anything different because my last bleed was a cp. I guess at least I know my cycle days properly again now so we can get back to trying & hoping for a sticky one this time.

Dexidoo Mon 03-Dec-12 14:22:32

Hello hope everyone is doing ok. These Mondays seem to roll around far too quickly.

5dpo and think I'm going to have to keep busy to avoid symptom spotting. ( currently some pelvic ache and intermittent nausea- more to do with the dodgy curry we had on the weekend I suspect)

<offers around some homemade marble sponge cake>

padster75 Mon 03-Dec-12 16:11:08

Hi Cherry,

Gutted to hear AF got you sad and not sure saying 'boozy Christmas ahoy!' is any consolation. Hopefully your cycle will right itself this month and you can start 2013 with some good news xx

Hey everyone, sorry for all who have been got by af. Is every fucker pregnant except us? Even the sodden royals have got in on the action. I'm still on af which is annoying and have settled on a dtd every other day until af hits again ewcm or no ewcm for this next month. Damn it. I will get pregnant. Why was it so easy the first time and now it's not?

Creamtea1 Mon 03-Dec-12 20:07:29

Quiet ninja my sentiments exactly, you've hit the nail on the head there. I'm on day 5 of af which is annoying. Once it's left in doing it every other day for the whole month, no opks or anything, that's the plan. Bfp due boxing day.

Cherrycherry Mon 03-Dec-12 20:49:23

Thanks Padster.

Here here QuietNinja - its not fair is it, it must be our turn soon!

FX for all of us! Lets shag dtd our way through December and onto lots of BFP's! smile

Yep yep shagging our way to Xmas bfp s! Definitely the way to go. grin

setayharas Mon 03-Dec-12 21:14:01

Hey everyone, been a bit quiet sorry! Majorly busy weekend putting Xmas decs up and chasing the dog around as he pulls everything off the tree(he's first Xmas..., maybe last if he isn't careful lol) NANs informed me I need a child to add to my already manic house, if only she knew how close to the truth that was.
Hope everyone's holding up!
Oh working till 12 every night this week so trying to stay awake and failing so that we can dtd. Robbie on the royal variety has helped keep me in the mood I must admit!

Iv opened the Xmas quality street so help yourself everyone!

JellyCurls Tue 04-Dec-12 06:36:46

Morning Ladies - hope you are all well.

No idea whats going on here but cycle day 14 and AF has finally buggered off - HOORAY!!! 27 days to go till she is due again (long cycles sure do suck) so on with the baby making plan of dtd every other day.

Baby making plan is as follows

1. Dtd lots trying for every other day or at least every three days till AF due

2. Not try and count days post ov as that just causes stress and also makes me POAS too early

3. Not symptom spot

4. Not POAS till AF is late so I am therefore actually a January 1st BFP

Not sure I will manage any of the above but willing to give it a go

chookford Tue 04-Dec-12 09:08:02

Good mantra Jelly I will hope to do the same! (but will very likely fail!)

I am sick with a bug as is my dd so not much fun in our house at the moment... although we do have all our decs up so that is nice and Christmasy!!

Sorry I havent updated the list have been too busy inspecting the bottom of my toilet...its surprisingly clean! Please anyone else feel free to update any new ladies or change in dates!!

Taking lovely I saw you had af show up booooooooo this Christmas is going to be you time I am sure... and everyone else for that matter due around Dec 25th!

Creamtea1 Tue 04-Dec-12 11:09:04

New rules for this December bus smile
1. No counting any days, ov days etc
2. Dtd every other day if you can
3. No symptom spotting
4. No opks
5. No poas untill period due day
6. No stressing (easier said than done I know!)

And lo we shall all get our Xmas bfps smile

setayharas Tue 04-Dec-12 12:04:25

Definitely no opks this month! Iv hidden mine far away from the toilet! I'm quite impressed with my restraint! By this time next week I hope to be able to say the same! Dreading the dtd bit every other day as iv woke up with the snottinest of noses and can hardly move let alone dtd lol

padster75 Tue 04-Dec-12 12:30:01

Rule update in the padster house:
1. Does my advent calendar count?
2. we did 6 days 'on the bounce' last week, I am taking time out
3. No symptoms to spot
4. Not bought any, quite like being utterly clueless
5. I don't excrete enough hcg to poas unless past AF due day anyway
6. Stressing ............. hmmmm me thinks I have enough to stress about away from babies ......... hubbie's not been paid this month and looks like the company are going tits up ......... christ on a bike why now?

Creamtea1 Tue 04-Dec-12 12:44:59

Padster what a nightmare - you're right you have more than enough to stress about before stressing about ttc, fingers crossed the pay gets sorted at least.
And advent calendar is allowed (chocolate ones obvs) smile

padster75 Tue 04-Dec-12 12:48:05

Thanks creamtea bit annoyed as he only started with the firm in the summer. Oh well, these things are sent to try us, and being so stressed means I am not noticing lack of symptoms and obsessing over them!! Every cloud and all that. And time to fess up ........ I don't like chocolate, so while DH & DS tuck into their chocs I hit the sweetie tin and raid the Haribos!!

deliasmithy Tue 04-Dec-12 20:00:46

Cream tea, I'll go with rules 2,3,5 and 6!
Actively breaking the others.

I've been poor on the snack front, so I've brought out homemade banana cupcakes and mugs of tea.

navis176 Tue 04-Dec-12 20:57:17

creamtea and jelly - I am following your rules! Should be second day of cheapie amazon opks today - and so far holding off - yay! Must be 2 to 3 weeks before I can POAS (see, don't even know exactly grin). And I do actually feel a wee bit more relaxed about it than last month....

Creamtea1 Tue 04-Dec-12 21:05:50

Good efforts ladies! I really think it may work for us all.
Delia - strangely there are home made banana cupcakes here too! Had a few squishy ones that needed using.
I've got no opks in the house and it feels more relaxed even just with that step. What I have done today though is order 2 first response tests ready for period due day, as it will be boxing day and don't 100% trust the Internet cheapies.

sparkle101 Wed 05-Dec-12 08:08:46

Good morning ladies. I have actively broken a rule. Please forgive me. I poas and bfp due Sunday. Do I need to leave the bus?
