setayharas Tue 05-Feb-13 22:02:06

lyndsey90 Tue 05-Feb-13 22:05:42

Thanks Ladies, just off to bed now, no sign of af as yet. Must be bugging you lot because I'm bugging myself...sorry confused

lyndsey90 Tue 05-Feb-13 22:15:58

loves don't be silly. I've been mumbling all day!

Feeling a bit mehh! Should I be excited I am late or be waiting for af? At the mo I am knicker checking that much that I might tell OH we can have a TV in the bathroom after all haha

SilverClementine Wed 06-Feb-13 00:01:36

Loves I feel the same tbh. my af symptoms are so strong today at CD25 that either I'll come on tomorrow or will get a BFP, going to do a FRER test in the morning. FX for us both!

Love the 'less chat, more sex' theme grin

QueenofClean Wed 06-Feb-13 06:31:44

Jumps on.

Come on Blondie hurry up and test before I go to work pls.

<waves to everyone, Who wants a hobnob>

MadPenney32 Wed 06-Feb-13 06:45:36

barebranches Wed 06-Feb-13 06:46:55

QueenofClean Wed 06-Feb-13 06:49:57

<Lobs hob nobs at Madpenny & Bare>

Sorry about your BFN bare.

padster75 Wed 06-Feb-13 06:55:55

Silver, I think I am the same as you (CD26) and after a temp drop and af rumblings (combined with lack of shagging at the important time) I would be amazed if I did get that elusive BFP this morning. Mind you, just had my morning cuppa and I really feel quite nauseous now .......

barebranches Wed 06-Feb-13 07:00:38

do u think there is still a chance? should i keep my hopes up or move on?

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 07:23:05

bare the rule on the bus is... It's not over until its over.

padster and clementine everything crosses for you.

Well ladies I do have some good news, great in facts

Just did my cb digi BFP and 2-3 weeks. I am ecstatic!!!!!!!!!

Sharing my lucky baby dust with you all!

QueenofClean Wed 06-Feb-13 07:24:55

Yay - Mahoosive Congrats Hayle.

So hoping my CB digi says the same next week!

Bare - it's not over till its over! smile

MadPenney32 Wed 06-Feb-13 07:25:26

Awesome Haylebop! Congrats . Wishing u a happy and healthy 9 months! X

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 07:36:51

Thanks guys, worked out dd of 14th oct which is my sisters birthday, she will not be happy. She's very self centred and immature.

Muhahahaha

Hayle that's amazing Congratulations grin

Bare its not over till af arrives

barebranches Wed 06-Feb-13 07:40:07

congrats hayle! grin

taken tampons to work. im normally very regular so we shall see!

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 07:50:38

Thanks ladies. You can add me to the BFP list now grin

I think I will need mine today too :/

SilverClementine Wed 06-Feb-13 07:56:36

Congrats Hayle that's fantastic news! grin

I got a BFN this morning, but af not due til Fri/sat so not counting myself out yet!

okavango Wed 06-Feb-13 08:00:08

lovely news Hayle! Fingers crossed the bfp arrives Bare. homemade toast and butter over here for brekkie if anyone fancies it. Not quite up to Queen's standards though.

I seemed to have missed ovulation on my opks or not to have ovulated. I am using ics daily but did twice around the time I thought I was ov, has anyone else missed ovulating using them? it is useful as I am still poas to check ovulation rather than obsessing about pg symptoms!

Whoo congratulations Hayle! Wishing you a healthy and happy 9 months. Didn't think I would be going symptom crazy but I can't help it here. So far we have exhaustion, sore boobs, bloating and pinching pains. Hmmm. Oh and ravenously hungry. Might just be AF but not due for another week.

Got really bad af type stomach cramps sad will be surprised if it holds off until lunch time! Not impressed with my body playing tricks on me

My internet went last night. Thank you Richard Branson and Virgin Media. I'm back online at work now, and checking their service status, estimated fix is tonight at 10pm. Really, wtf!

Can't believe it's 3 pages of posts since last night!

For the list, I thought lyndsey has a BFP? Or is it still just very very late?

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 09:21:42

one she wanted to wait until she saw doc smile

MotherOfCleo Wed 06-Feb-13 09:36:46

one yep lynds got her BFP last night......I am chuffed to bits for her but also stupidly jealous

QueenofClean Wed 06-Feb-13 09:44:36

Okavango - Got toasted bagels here at work this morning for breakfast and an orange.

Loves & bare I hope AF stays away.

Ok will get it in the post this afters :-)

setayharas Wed 06-Feb-13 11:48:25

Hey everyone! Lunch time finally. Munching down the rest of last nights stir fry! Spose bad for diet but as I included spinach and I hear that's good for fertility I don't care!

Still gotte nice cramps today and only cd8 don't ov until at least cd18 normally so can't wait to see the doc and beg for more tests! This is month 3 of full month of pains he better listen or I might just cry!

Sorry about the bfn's today. It isn't over until the bitch turns up tho!

sambrads Wed 06-Feb-13 12:03:14

blondie my DD is 6 months and i wanted to start ttc as soon as possible cause i know this can be a long process but hopefully we will get BFP this month. I had to get fertility treatment with DC2 cause i was ovulating at all so I do not take TTC for granted it really gets to you and takes over your life.

I havent a clue wat way my cycles are some months 28 days some 30 days last AF was 10th January so gonna wait til friday to start testing although im very tempted now. I know i ovulated day 15 / 16 so didnt ovulate late even though my cycles can be late.

A massive congrats hayley

Finished work, picked up a test, I am a day late for af. On way home, busting for a wee. please let it be a bfp

littlepinkfizz Wed 06-Feb-13 12:21:34

Good luck loves let's us know how you get on!!!

Wardy17 Wed 06-Feb-13 12:39:11

Sorry loves my screen didn't update properly sorry about your BFN!!

bebebuttons2 Wed 06-Feb-13 12:46:41

I would like to join this bus, my BFP is due 3rd march roughly? A whole month of future shagging to get on with but I am so excited already!!!!

I am hoping stupidly probably that it is just early days and it's not showing up yet. There was no faint line or anything. Will test again first thing. Still got a bit of cm is that normal?

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 13:15:29

loves still not over though. You might have ovd late?

I had quite a lot of cm between 10 and 14dpo.

lyndsey90 Wed 06-Feb-13 13:32:43

Sooooo hungry!!!!!!!!
Can't believe I missed the doctors today wah.

QueenofClean Wed 06-Feb-13 13:58:51

Loves sorry about your BFN sad

Thank Ladies and Hi to the newcomers bebe and little
So we have had 3 (4 when Lynds gets her arse to the docs) bfp's and its only the 6th! Lots more to come I hope smile

Should I test tomorrow first thing or wait till friday? Help!

navis176 Wed 06-Feb-13 15:10:24

marking my place...can't believe we're on a second thread!!

good luck to everyone poas...

padster75 Wed 06-Feb-13 15:25:43

Congrats hayle brilliant news

News from Padster HQ is af has very nicely arrived 2 days early .......

QueenofClean Wed 06-Feb-13 15:46:59

Sorry to hear that Pads.

Aww Sorry to hear that Pads

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 16:40:33

That's shit pads

queen you little package is on its way smile

loves I reckon, if you can hold out leave it till Friday. You hormones should have increased by enough by then if you are and you'll be couple more days late...

I think you are right Bop, never been one for patience though haha

QueenofClean Wed 06-Feb-13 17:09:21

Thanks Bop grin

Is it tues/weds next week yet?!

*Queen# My eldest keeps asking why its taking so long to be next week, its his 9th Birthday on Wednesday he is busting a nut to know what he is getting, keep telling him he now knows how I felt waiting for him to arrive, he was 10 days late and I didn't know if he was a boy or a girl

Ooooooh you lot have been busy chatting hope you've all been shagging too

Had a smear today and explained situation to the nurse and she said she thinks my cycle is 'settling' as she so very nicely put it sad

On the other hand I got my arse to Asda as DD needed more food and they had FR AND CB on offer £6 for a 2 pack of each, so guess what Blondie's doing once DD is in bed!!

Hayle BFC (Big Fat Congrats) from me smile Yay!!! Another BFP for this busy bus!

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 18:12:42

blondie you go girl! if you saw me I would look totally uncool Saying that

Wardy17 Wed 06-Feb-13 18:14:40

BFN

Got to love a good offer of sticks to pee on, good luck Blondie make sure you let us know how you get on smile

Hi guys wasn't on first thread but jumping on now.
Ttc 2 cycle 9 bfp due 30th feb ish

Congrats haylebop so pleased for you.

BookWormery Wed 06-Feb-13 18:25:59

Marking my place. smile

I'm on CD 13 now and only DTD twice so far, on CD 10 and 12! Am planning to carry on every other day at least up until CD 18. I'm not using sticks or temping or anything, just hoping I am ovulating!

I usually have a 26 day cycle but it's been 28 days for the last couple of months.

Anyone know why a cycle would suddenly increase by two days?!

barebranches Wed 06-Feb-13 18:31:21

hi everyone, hope you all had good days.
Still no AF. Hope it stays away. Also managed to go into a supermarket with out buying any more tests, spent a fortune already!!

Going to test at the weekend if still no AF.

FX smile

BookWormery Wed 06-Feb-13 18:31:46

And congrats Hayle! grin I am v envious. Would have loved an October dd, silly I know!

QueenofClean Wed 06-Feb-13 18:34:43

Loves I'll be testing on weds smile

My 30 birthday on Friday and DH won't tell me what he's got planned!

DD1 was 1 week early, DD2 arrived bang on time!

Wardy17 Wed 06-Feb-13 18:38:26

Just POAS got BFN sad

OOh exciting birthday surprises grin

All my 3 were late, lazy sods wink

QueenofClean Wed 06-Feb-13 18:51:04

sad Wardy. That's pants. Hope it's just that there's not enuff hormone and AF isn't on her way.

Loves DD2 only arrived when she did because I was induced as my waters broke 56hrs before she was born and I didn't go into labour on my own. Once they got labour started via a drip she was here within 2hrs!

Wardy17 Wed 06-Feb-13 19:03:19

I am testing a day early so hopefully AF won't arrive tomorrow. I am so impatient and now I'm miserable

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 19:08:12

My dd was 16 days early grin was verrrrrrry happy!

BeQuicksieorBeDead Wed 06-Feb-13 19:38:13

Hey Ladies,
I have had acupuncture today for the first time, to try and regulate my ever increasing cycles now I have had blood tests done with everything showing as fine. I felt such a weight lifted off me afterwards - it was amazing. I didn't think I would feel anything (apart from the needles!) but muscles relaxed that I didn't realise were tense! Will keep you posted on whether it fixes my stupid cycles as I know I am not the only one at the mercy of bitch queen hormones!

Springbells Wed 06-Feb-13 20:24:01

Hello all, I'm a serious lurker, been following this (and the last smile ) thread for the last few days. First things first, CONGRATS to Hayle and all the others with BFP, so excited for you. Now, ttc#2, cycle 2, bfp (hope that's that jinxing it....) due either... Last Sunday or next Sunday.... Hmm. Cycle between 28 days and 35 days (which really drags out the 2ww!) had cramping last weekend so thought for sure af was on its way. Nothing.... Been feeling mildly sicky and burpy since Monday, boobs all big and heavy, and mild cramping, oh, and (tmi warning) lots of cm. I am also checking underwear on regular occasions although haven't yet considered a tv in the bathroom! Online cheapies arrived today, and, of course, couldn't wait so did one this afternoon (had drunk loads before though) and still disappointed with BFN! When will I learn... And now lots of cramping so maybe af any time... So, sorry for the saga, I'm probably imagining the pg symptoms, as I did last month, but its so nice to read other ladies with same circumstances (and serious poas habits smile ) would just like to know so I can pour myself a seriously large glass of wine! Xx

Just wondering what miu your IC are? I have some cheapies which are 20miu

Springbells Wed 06-Feb-13 21:02:58

Not that I'm a addict repeat buyer or anything..blush but I got the 10 miu this time, it took me a while to work out which were the senitive one, and not just which ones say they're sensitive! So probably going to get a bfn tomoz am when I poas as feel sure they would have picked up positive by now...

QueenofClean Wed 06-Feb-13 21:03:35

OBEM time grin

You never know Spring smile I never thought about what miu i was using until before but if i get a bfn tomorrow and af still hasnt shown up I will get a 10miu one while i am in town

Springbells Wed 06-Feb-13 21:09:31

Loves.. Sounds like a plan, keeping fx for a bfp for you in the morning!

SilverClementine Wed 06-Feb-13 21:26:38

well ladies unfortunately af has just arrived nice and fucking early so I'm off the Feb bus sad

We've agreed to have a break next month, its too stressful.

Best of luck to all of you still on the bus and thanks for the handholding! I hope I never see you again on any more busses this year grin

lyndsey90 Wed 06-Feb-13 21:41:33

Will let you all know how it goes! DH is happily watching the England match so can laptop all I like :D

So sorry to hear that Silver Thank you for the hand holding. Hope you get your BFP very soon xxx

barebranches Wed 06-Feb-13 21:58:14

so sorry silver
dreading the arrival of mine. got burny boobs and cramps... so could be soon. sad

SilverClementine Wed 06-Feb-13 22:14:17

Thanks guys. It has made it easier knowing there were people out there who totally understand how gutting it is to keep getting af month after month after month.

Our time will come, of that I have no doubt!

Best of luck to you all! Now Blondie you go POAS and give me a BFP to cheer me up! smile

xx

lyndsey90 Wed 06-Feb-13 22:17:00

Oh no silver, sorry the witch got you. Hope you have a chilled month off. Loves - ditto! Bfn. Looked at dates again, if af doesn't come tonight I'm officially into longest cycle ever. Grr. Not going to test again until Sunday. Honest ha who am I kidding

barebranches Thu 07-Feb-13 10:06:55

sad af just came.sad

okavango Thu 07-Feb-13 10:10:45

sorry bare that sucks. Can you treat yourself to a glass of wine tonight?

Sorry to all those who've been got by the witch. I went to docs today and she's getting some blood tests done. I'm gonna start a separate thread if anyone wants to come and just help me with a couple of things. Fingers crossed for those still waiting that your bfp come soon.

Sorry to hear the witch has caught up with some of you - sliver, bare and pixie, and others I might have missed. I'm struggling to catch up with this thread. All the best on the March bus.

And those whose AF is late but still have BFN. Keep you hopes up. It might take a week to test positive. (But lyndsey why are you using an opk)?

I have a temp spike today, but stupid fertility friend still didn't say I ovulated. Oh well. I think we'll dtd tonight and then have a bit of a rest. DH is exhausted with every other day bd for a week and a bit.

I've used up all my IC OPKs now, and they are all rubbish and didn't see any LH surges. I was eyeing up the CB digital OPKs on the internet yesterday. Once I spent that much on sticks, I might as well pay for a pretty CBFM isn't it? It's only £70 on amazon. (I know I know. But I'll pay for anything if it's helps me get a BFP). Are they worth the money? Anyone of you using it? Maybe I should go and find a CBFM support thread and see what the ladies there say.

After tonight, I'll be joining the 2ww gang and try to be calm, very calm. Will try to resist sympton spotting this month!

My thread is called hi can I get some help please ladies thank you if anyone can take a look and help me any more? I'd be grateful just so I've got it straight in my head what's what.
I'm on cd9 now so dh and I are about to commence the eod shagathon so keeping my fingers crossed for this month.

Oh bare sad sorry she got you xx

setayharas Thu 07-Feb-13 11:30:44

ONE i got a cbfm on ebay this month £40 with 20 sticks try on there. its meant to calm my poas addiction ill probably us ic aswell anyway

setay is it a second hand one for £40? Thanks for the tip. I'm seriously tempted.

Wardy17 Thu 07-Feb-13 11:54:24

Hi can someone help me work something out please. My last AF started on the 7th Jan, my cycle is normally 32 days I worked that out to be today as I included the 7th but now I'm thinking is it in fact tomorrow? What do you think?

If you're cycle is 32 days then today is the 32nd day so you should come on tomoro I think.

Wardy17 Thu 07-Feb-13 12:01:34

Oh I see so if your cycle was for example 28 days you would e due to start your next cycle on the 29th day not day 28?

Yes it'll be the 29th.

Wardy17 Thu 07-Feb-13 12:18:55

Oh I've been looking at it wrong this whole time sad

Ooh so my cycle must be 27 days as I come on every 28 days?

setayharas Thu 07-Feb-13 12:48:07

one yeah it was second hand smells like disinfectant lol im guessin aslong as i dont start licking it(if its the tww and im mental i might lol) i should be ok with the second hand one.
the extra sticks arent cheap though

sambrads Thu 07-Feb-13 13:10:15

love and wardy hopefully no AF is a good sign and it stays away and you get a BFP. My AF is due 10th and i done a test today and was BFN sad hate it but cant help testing early. are yas getting any symptoms?
for the past few days i keep feeling so so sick then it passes or i will retch but not actually sick. boobs are sore and stingy not achey but feels like they have pins and needles in them and nipples so sensitive. confused

I was snooping online at different things and i have read that some women have got BFP 5 days after ovulation. this is crazy would love it to be so soon then you wouldnt have the dreaded 2WW.

hope everyone else is doing ok

lyndsey90 Thu 07-Feb-13 13:17:29

I did an opk cause I wanted to poas lol. I'm buying a digi and doing it tomorrow. Feeling up duffed today, my trousers are not feeling comfy on my belly sad can't do test today cause I'm gonna try stay at work on overtime till 9 cause I'll need the money!!!!

Wardy17 Thu 07-Feb-13 13:28:05

sambrads I haven't got any symptoms I feel a bit icky if I miss a meal but that's it, boobs feel normal! But I don't pay much attention to symptoms. I got to 11 weeks last time and didn't have 1 symptom no tiredness or sore boobs or anything!!

I have no symptoms either, feeling fat today, think I may have shrunk my jeans in the dryer though hmm

lyndsey I have everything crossed for you

Fingers crossed for you wardy, you never know.

And fingers crossed for you too lynsey!

Wardy17 Thu 07-Feb-13 13:42:19

Actually I have 1 symptom....feeling like AF is going to start

Haylebop12 Thu 07-Feb-13 14:33:15

sambrads that's how my boobs were and still are. Not achy, stingy and nipples feel like they got needles in them.

ladies, the golden rule... It's not over I til it's over. NEVER forget that.

JellyBeanDavey Thu 07-Feb-13 16:12:17

Today i have been feeling a bit sicky and was very tearful this morning over my weak bladder lol how pathetic!

I really don't know when to test. i was thinking wednesday. Then is will be 2days before when i thought id be due for AF/BFP and then maybe wednesday the following weekend, if not, as that would be the day my app thinks my AF/BFP is due lol So confusing.

Today i had very think CM, sorry for being so descriptive lol anyone else had this? it was like PVA glue colour lol

navis176 Thu 07-Feb-13 16:27:45

sorry to those that af got and fx for those still hanging on in there....

I've got a bunch of ICs so poas at will even though it's way too early for anything to show, even had a crack at an opk....ah well, completely mental, but something to do while I wait for af!! grin

the bitch af just arrived sad

mrsLAQ Thu 07-Feb-13 16:55:06

Jelly I'm exactly the same today, just had a good old cry and still feeling tearful, also have sticky "PVA glue" CM. I also have some very mild cramps though so wasn't sure if I am in fact ovulating?! I though originally that AF was due next Friday but not sure how reliable my cycles are.

Haylebop12 Thu 07-Feb-13 17:22:31

So gutted for you loves

Thanks bop my mind was clearly playing tricks with me, I am seriously never late. Oh well can get trollied guilt free this weekend, get af out of the way and start again smile

Boo hiss to all these AF's I POAS not just any stick a CB one and still BFN, still no AF...

Twiddles thumbs. Love at least you know one way now!

Lyndsey Hurry up and POAS already woman, the tension is unbearable!!

Haylebop12 Thu 07-Feb-13 17:48:52

Yes very cruel loves

Blondie Keeping my fingers crossed your af doesn't arrive and that you get your BFP. Sometimes it can take a few days and up to and over a week in some ladies for the hormone levels to be strong enough for the test to pick up. As we always say its not over till af arrives smile I know lynds has kept me on the edge of my seat for about a week now lol!

lyndsey90 Thu 07-Feb-13 18:05:06

I have now been at work 10 hours instead of my usual 5 and I have 3 hours to go. I am so tired....

lyndsey90 Thu 07-Feb-13 18:05:54

loves I promise I'm going Morrison's tonight!!

setayharas Thu 07-Feb-13 18:15:49

So iv got another question!
Does anyone know if having a heavy night drinking can hold back ovulation? The last two months it has happened that the night before or 2 nights before iv been out and had more than my fair share of wine, both these months iv ovulated a few days later than iv thought I should. Anyone know if this is a coincidence or would it have something to do with alcohol?

Either way I'm not drinking this month so I might try and see if I'm bck to normal

JellyBeanDavey Thu 07-Feb-13 18:22:07

Setay they do say it can effect ovulation.

JellyBeanDavey Thu 07-Feb-13 18:28:11

mrsLAQ I've also had a small pain in one side, and a little crampiness but i thought maybe i just needed to wee haha
Got lots of spots too now, got them?
I went off the OPK months ago, it wasnt picking anything up, and we were DTD most mornings/nights so I thought why waste my money lol

QueenofClean Thu 07-Feb-13 18:50:43

Loves sad booo that AF arrived.

Home after a long day at work. My girls are in bed and I'm just having a hot bath and going to enjoy the last few hours of my twenties! shock

No symptoms except I do think my boobs are getting slightly bigger. prob all in my head

Wardy17 Thu 07-Feb-13 20:01:25

Sorry loves to hear your AF has arrived. Mine is due tomorrow, tested this eve still BFN

Seriously my chin/jaw has never been spottier... So confused! This never happened with DD at all!

Wardy17 Thu 07-Feb-13 21:12:04

My chin is really really spotty as well, I had that last time I was preggo!!!

flowersfortea Thu 07-Feb-13 21:47:13

Hi ladies, marking my place and trying to catch up on this thread, it keeps moving so fast!

Sorry to hear about all the BFNs.
Wardy and Blondie - this month (3rd off pill) my skin has completely regressed to the state it was in during my teens, terrible spots on face, chest and whole of my back. It's a miracle DH can see beyond it and still want to DTD! But I think this, and what seems to be becoming quite cyclical, itchy tender breasts, must just be something hormonal. In the interest of trying to keep positive, I have decided therefore it is a sign that my body is remembering how to do the fertility thing even if my cycles are horrendously long and irregular.

This month might not be the one for me though, lots of stress with new job this week, it's always horrible starting somewhere new and not having a clue what I'm doing, just hope I can get through the next few weeks whilst learning the ropes. Fingers crossed for us and the rest of you!

Springbells Thu 07-Feb-13 22:15:03

Oh no Loves, was really holding out for you. I've got a feeling I'm heading the same way, although like hayle says 'taint over until...' And all that. If the witch waits til Monday I shall be seriously grumpy, I want to at least commiserate with a bottle glass of wine wine (love that there's a symbol for wine, says a lot about us mumsnetters grin

lyndsey90 Thu 07-Feb-13 22:21:05

Oh forgodsake. I've started spotting again today. I don't understand why sad

Springbells Thu 07-Feb-13 22:25:28

Hold on in there Lyndsey, I thought I had af with last pg, but didn't last a long - was going out on big night so did test jic. fx for fmu tomoz

bluefreckles Fri 08-Feb-13 07:22:41

Hey all. POAS this morning and was greated with a BFN sad
Think I'm 3-5 days off AF being due.
Depressed as hell and decided I'm infertile.

I'm sure I'll get over this wave of depression in the next few mins. Grrrr!!

Wardy17 Fri 08-Feb-13 08:07:09

Sorry about your BFN blue!! I POAS this morning now, BFN as well AF due to make an appearance today sad

QueenofClean Fri 08-Feb-13 08:09:18

Sorry about your BFN Blue.

Lyndsey hopefully your BFP sticks.

I'm officially an old girl today. It's my birthday I'm 29+1 wink

Wardy17 Fri 08-Feb-13 08:15:52

Happy birthday Queen!!!

QueenofClean Fri 08-Feb-13 08:42:27

Wardy sorry about your BFN sad

Thank you for the birthday wish x

younggrizzly Fri 08-Feb-13 08:47:24

Blimey I've lost track of this thread! Hello again everyone.

Happy birthday Queen

I've been distracted from net this week by blood test results from drs. Progesterone a bit low, FSH and LH a bit high for someone my age (29). Repeating tests this cycle and will be referred to hospital if they're the same. Am so scared that my eggs are useless...

In the TWW at the mo. BFP due 14th/15th if we've been lucky. Waiting is driving me crackers!!

Honestly feel like I'll be on every bus in 2013. Would I get a discount on a season pass do you think wink

Haylebop12 Fri 08-Feb-13 08:57:11

Happy birthday queen your present should be with you today wink

Sorry about the BFNs ladies.

JellyBeanDavey Fri 08-Feb-13 11:59:28

Happy birthday queen hope your your having a fab day!

Sorry about bfn blue and wardy. I had a bfn too but I'm way too early, I just do it cos I can lol

QueenofClean Fri 08-Feb-13 13:27:56

Hayle thanks not been home yet so not sure if my present has been delivered yet.

Have been clothes shopping and now in the hairdressers smile

Hoping for a BFP next week.

lyndsey90 Fri 08-Feb-13 14:50:02

Had to leave work early today, sacked off the overtime. Bleeding heavy with clots now. Most likely I've MC'd. Kept welling up at my desk and feeling like I'm gonna have anxiety attacks. OH was very understanding, gave me money to get home. Meh sad

setayharas Fri 08-Feb-13 15:03:15

oh lyndsey! im so sorry! when are you due to see the doc? i hope your oh takes care of you this weekend!
i really am sorry to hear this

thinking of you xx

lyndsey90 Fri 08-Feb-13 15:06:37

Thanks setay he does look after me smile but we have his daughter on the weekend, dunno how I'll feel around her, but hey ho. Gotta deal with it I guess xx

Wardy17 Fri 08-Feb-13 15:12:57

Oh Lyndsey I'm really sorry x

setayharas Fri 08-Feb-13 15:26:40

might help you keep you mind off things maybe?
aslong as he spoils you aswell.
yep mother natures a bitch! i guess these things make us stronger people

QueenofClean Fri 08-Feb-13 15:33:32

Lyndsey I'm so sorry sad

lyndsey90 Fri 08-Feb-13 15:40:17

It's more a constant reminder his ex wife got knocked up in no time, makes me feel worse!

Springbells Fri 08-Feb-13 15:52:58

Lyndsey, so sorry. Look after yourself, and let oh pamper you this weekend

So sorry to hear that lyndsey. Get some wine for the weekend. I treated myself to a CBFM blush. I'm really no good at being patient at this ttc game.

lyndsey90 Fri 08-Feb-13 16:45:08

Haha one I know what you mean. How long does it take of cycle to get back to normal????

I don't know lyndsey, I'm on my first cycle after mc. I'm hoping it'll be my usual 29 days!

By the way, that's why I'm getting the CBFM. I'm hoping it will help if I do become irregular for a while. (My period was very regular before). You need to start on CD1 I think, that's why I need to get it now before the next cycle starts.

oh Lyndsey so sorry to hear that :-( Sending love and hugs xx

Ariel21 Fri 08-Feb-13 17:08:33

Lyndsey sad So sorry to hear this. Hope you're ok and that your weekend with your OH's daughter is OK.

okavango Fri 08-Feb-13 18:01:51

Lyndsey I am so sorry. Take some painkillers tonight if it is painful along with medicinal chocolate.

lyndsey90 Fri 08-Feb-13 18:02:01

Thanks for your support, means a lot when I've not really got anyone else to talk to smile just best sit about and wait for the bleeding to stop!! Argh xx

sambrads Fri 08-Feb-13 18:26:36

lyndsey i am so so sorry to hear this. hope ur ok and you have a weekend of support and cuddles from your OH. sending ya big hugs xox

went to tesco today and have had a really weird dull ache in my bits nearly like pressure confused promised myself i wouldnt do test before saturday but done one about an hour ago and it was negetive so left it and went back to check it 5 mins later and i think i seen the faintist of lines. i dont know if my eyes are playing tricks or its an evap line but now my head is even more scrambled.

QueenofClean Fri 08-Feb-13 18:39:49

Lyndsey so sorry sad

Sam - try again with another test in morning.

I've had a lovely birthday today, turning 30 isn't that bad lol. I've been spoilt by my hubby, girls & family and still got more to come on Sunday grin
Funny thing is I guess some of my birthday present was 2 pregnancy tests lol! Along with all the clothes, money & shoes I've been brought today. Also been treated to a nice new hair cut & colour.

FX for a BFP over next few days for those who will be testing with me.

lyndsey90 Fri 08-Feb-13 18:42:47

Fingers crossed and happy birthday Queen

I just tested again, definite bfn. I'm defo out now, gonna use the other test in the morning to make sure.

Not sure what I'm gonna do for a while now, might knock TTC on the head for a couple of months xx

QueenofClean Fri 08-Feb-13 18:46:19

sad Lyndsey.

I think if you give it a break (by not thinking about it too much I mean) it will probably happen.

lyndsey90 Fri 08-Feb-13 18:49:56

Haha! I hope so. I think I need to have a cry soon. On the bus to my mums there was a guy soothing his crying baby, my god. I had to force myself not to cry. HOW embarrasing!!! Lol

lyndsey take a break from active ttc if you need to. Be nice to yourself.

sambrads it sounds like it might be a bfp!!

queen I think I need new shoes, haircut and clothes too. But I don't have a birthday as an excuse sad

notsoold Fri 08-Feb-13 19:21:17

Af due today/tomorrow. No symptoms at all ( af or otherwise)....tested with a frer fmu and BFN!!!sad
Out this month I think!!!
We did not dtd as often as we should and never got a peak from cbfm
Fx to all still on the run

I'm sorry Lyndsey. Hugs for you. Look after yourself x

MadPenney32 Fri 08-Feb-13 20:07:52

So sorry Lynsey, sending u a big virtual hug x

lyndsey90 Fri 08-Feb-13 20:43:29

Thanks for the virtual hugzies! I'm drowning my sorrows xx

Wardy17 Fri 08-Feb-13 21:34:55

notsoold I'm in exactly the same boat AF due today (no symptoms at all) did FRER this morning with fmu BFN!! How likely is it that I still wouldn't have enough hormone to detect yet? I think I dtd enough around ovulation and come tomorrow I'll be a day late. I sound desperate I know but just after some advice sad

Haylebop12 Fri 08-Feb-13 22:24:15

Sorry to hear your news lyndsey take it easy.

sambrads that's how mine started. Second line after a few mins then got quicker and quicker. Didn't get a definite BFP until day AF was due.

wardy notso FX AF stays away for you!

queen glad you've had a lovely birthday smile

notsoold Fri 08-Feb-13 22:26:29

Wardy....I really don't know what to say....
For myself as I don't have any symptoms and a neg Frer I assumed that somehow ov delayed and I missed my chance this monthsad
Hope you have better luck than me! Fx for you....xxx

Wardy17 Fri 08-Feb-13 22:31:13

Yeah your probably right I'm just clinging onto hope!!

notsoold Fri 08-Feb-13 22:38:59

Sorry wardy...I didn't mean that...once I take age into account that is when I lose hope for myself. I am 41 and had a mmc and a cp since april 12. Everybody is different and you might do much better than me!! But ttc and af every cycle is a bitch isn't it???
Are you going to test again??? I don'tknow when I should test....

Wardy17 Fri 08-Feb-13 22:44:39

I agree with you I think an FRER would pick something up on the day of AF if I was upduffed!! I think I will test Sunday/Monday if I haven't come on by then. I honestly thought I would find ttc enjoyable but the wait is hard work. Are you due today???

notsoold Fri 08-Feb-13 22:57:02

Thanks Hayle!!!!
Wardy I am due today or tomorrow it always varies.....
I have ic and might test in few days time...
Do you have af symptoms??? I don't at all!!!

Wardy17 Fri 08-Feb-13 23:03:01

I had some light ones a couple of days ago but now they've gone!!! Don't know what to think

QueenofClean Sat 09-Feb-13 07:18:31

When's the earliest I can test, AF not due till Thursday or Friday and DH& I are getting impatient.

Hi Queen, if you have IC's test as much as you want. I would say maybe wait until Wednesday uf you can hold off that long smile good luck x

QueenofClean Sat 09-Feb-13 09:08:50

Loves what's ic's?

Haylebop12 Sat 09-Feb-13 09:44:53

Internet cheapies.

I used those until AF was officially late and then used the more expensive ones.

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 10:13:19

Hi all can I squeeze on this busy bus please. Was due AF between 4th-11th feb this is due to my cycles still settling after coming off the pill last Aug. Dtd every other to cover both weeks. Had pinching pains & cramps all this week, going to the loo loads (could be cos of the cold weather) yesterday thought Af was on the way cd31 but was very light brown & nothing really since, don't feel bloated but stomach is hard?! Don't wont to get my hopes & Poas just yet maybe leave til I'm officially late on Monday?? Any advice ladies?

QueenofClean Sat 09-Feb-13 10:18:29

Oh right thanks.

Hayle your parcel arrived this morning smile

Feeling tired & hungry tbh. No symptoms apart from that but to early I guess. I really don't think we have been lucky this month sad

navis176 Sat 09-Feb-13 11:41:21

Hi RedEars - have you got any ICs? If so, have a cheeky poas to see!!

Queen - I'd wait til Tues or Weds...although obviously I don't follow own advice because poas this morning (11dpo) - bfn and all the signs that af is on the way - so now I'm deeply depressed sad

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 12:59:17

Thanks navis, just had really Af pains while getting some shopping in M&S so walked home got on the loo.. Nothing! Just told dh what's been going on & he said test, (I've got a fr test in cupboard) might have to wait til tomorrow morning to test gone to the far to many times today to get a proper result (I'm being v. brave aren't?! :-) ) . Whenever I've Poas lately when I think I'm late my Af comes within a few days, like she wants me to test then comes along away!

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 13:00:18

*gone to the loo!!

BookWormery Sat 09-Feb-13 14:19:15

Had loads of (what i think is) ovulation pain last night cd15, more than ever before. Couldn't DTD yesterday but did on Sun, Tues and Weds. Just attempted to jump on DP but he's obviously not in the mood and suggested it was time I shaved 'down there'. PRICK!! Wondering if I want to TTC with this imbecile at all right now

BookWormery Sat 09-Feb-13 14:19:59

Sorry, had to rant.

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 14:31:17

Oh book poor u, sounds like uve done enough dtd, next time he wants to get giggy with u, throw the comment back to him... That's what I do :-)

BookWormery Sat 09-Feb-13 14:38:01

I did just suggest he get a penis extension.

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 15:05:06

Lol now got laughter pains not Af pains!!

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 15:06:25

Is burping a early pg symptom being doing lots of that today too???

QueenofClean Sat 09-Feb-13 17:20:47

Book - that's a shame. lol @ penis extension tho.

Not sure about burping as a symptom tbh.

I have spotty skin which I never have is that a sign? I should know being I'm ttc3 but never had spotty skin before!

so tired too.

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 20:21:50

Still no AF, nipples look darker and I'm feeling extremely tired. POAS this morning not with fmu and got BFN. Do you think I still don't have enough hormone to tell? Is that possible the day after you are due? I tested with a 10miu

Springbells Sat 09-Feb-13 20:42:14

Wardy - in the same position, no af, despite cramps, and late. Fmu gave bfn. Also used 10miu. I'm guessing I'm not pg, as surely it would have been picked up by now? Either way, only looking at a lovely glass of wine, as don't want to risk it!

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 20:45:06

I just don't know what to think I've read things that some women don't get BFP till their a week late!! I don't think I can wait another week. When was your AF due?

Springbells Sat 09-Feb-13 20:54:14

I'm on day 34. Longest cycle ever has only ever been 32. Fed up with waiting, and poas (done the odd one or two by now hmm - hate getting my hopes up, even though I try hard not to! Hey ho. Fmu on frer tomorrow am.

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 20:56:56

I'm on day 34 too normal cycle is 31-32. Good luck with POAS tomorrow. Hubby has told me I can't test until Wednesday sad as already done like 5!!

Wardy with ds I tested on cd32 and got bfn and tested again on cd34 and got bfp. Think my cycles were around 30 days or so at the time. So can be late and not get bfp.

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 20:58:33

I really hope that's the case for me quiet

Complete cross posts about cycle length. You know what they say, it's not over til the bitch witch appears.

Fingers crossed for you. I'm not holding my breath this month as I'm visiting a friend the weekend I think I'm due to ovulate so prob gonna miss my chance! Got blood tests coming up so we'll see if they turn anything up as to why its not happening yet.

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 21:00:51

FX she doesn't for everyone ttc

Springbells Sat 09-Feb-13 21:03:38

Blimey Wardy, that's tough (I secretly tested this morning, shhh grin ) although after tomorrow I'm all out of tests, so will have to be restrained! Keeping fingers crossed for all of us, be nice to have a due date buddy!

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 21:06:18

Ditto I hope it happens for everyone. I know he's worried I'm obsessing to much, he doesn't know the half of it, ha!!

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 21:07:16

Wardy - how long are ur cycles could u just be a day or 2 out, or are u bang on date normally?

Had some more red/brown DC earlier & Af pains, if its coming, just come already! Then I can plan for next cycle arrrgh!!

Springbells Sat 09-Feb-13 21:08:00

Quiet, hope the blood tests go ok, re your weekend away, don't forget the tenacity of the little blighters.... wink

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 21:11:07

Sorry typed to slow, fx its a BFP for u soon!

Springbells Sat 09-Feb-13 21:11:07

Wardy - thank goodness for mumsnet!

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 21:12:29

Red I'm normally bang on but had a mc in November so could be a bit out of wack!! Don't have any AF symptoms at all!! I feel the same if I'm not of which I'm probably not just want AF to come. My cycles are normally 32 days. When are you due?

Springbells Sat 09-Feb-13 21:12:39

2redears - you never know, until she shows her face properly... Fx for you

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 21:20:39

Springbells mumsnet has been a great help. FX for your POAS tomorrow

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 21:24:56

Thank u spring.

Wardy - last few cycles have been 40, 35, 34. On cd32 at the mo so going by last cycle due on Monday.
Thought u said that u had dark nipples?, thats a symptom still.

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 21:28:29

Yeah darker nipples today and really tired. FX AF doesn't arrive for you. Are you having any symptoms?

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 21:35:22

Ive had cramps/pinching both sides all week, bit of nausea. Y'day had light pink dc & Af cramps (never had Af pains without Af arriving) & lots of burping today never burped so much in life lol.

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 21:45:28

Haha burping never heard of that one! Are you going to POAS?

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 22:14:12

I know the burping thing is weird?? Will see if I get anymore symptoms, if Af doesn't arrive Monday with Poas tues! What about u, due /Poas?

Wardy17 Sat 09-Feb-13 22:17:52

I was due Friday. I have POAS a few times with no luck. Will leave it a few days if I can too much disappointment

2RedEars Sat 09-Feb-13 22:42:00

Fx.... Days are becoming so long lol

notsoold Sat 09-Feb-13 23:16:10

Wardy....darker nipple counts as a major symptom in my book, unless you get that before af.... Fx for you!!!

Still bfn for me. Af due yesterday/ today and so far nothing!!! Not even spotting or acne...

QueenofClean Sun 10-Feb-13 09:59:57

Is waking up really hungry, still tired, spots and a bulky feeling in your uterus any signs of impending BFP? Never had any of these with the other 2.

okavango Sun 10-Feb-13 10:04:59

Queen I am not sure but fingers crossed. I am due Thursday/Friday but poas this morning. Bfn of course, I don't know why I torture myself like this.

Wardy17 Sun 10-Feb-13 10:05:13

Queen, I felt exactly the same this morning starving and tired. My skin has been bad for about a week now. If no AF today I'll be 2 days late. Are you going to POAS?

Wardy17 Sun 10-Feb-13 10:06:32

Also have a heavy feeling in my lower tummy

JellyBeanDavey Sun 10-Feb-13 10:14:25

Morning ladies. Despite me think I ov'd around the 26-29th and my app telling me I would ov 1-6th, I think I'm due ov or have ov'd any day now. So I thought I was a week in to me 2ww at least lol so I will restart me 2ww from next Friday lol and I'm not going to bother testing if I can help it until I have symptoms

QueenofClean Sun 10-Feb-13 10:22:53

Wardy I'm going to hold out testing till Tuesday if I can as not due till Thursday/Friday. DH has been snappy yet blamed me for snapping at him in the first instance which I didn't but maybe in someway I did earlier this morning due to being tired & hungry. I dunno!

Wardy17 Sun 10-Feb-13 10:29:06

I was due Friday I have POAS a lot and all BFN. DH getting the hump with me coz I keep testing!!

QueenofClean Sun 10-Feb-13 10:40:25

I didn't get a BFP with DD1 till I was 16/17 weeks along. So know the feeling.

Wardy17 Sun 10-Feb-13 10:58:13

That gives me some hope!!

2RedEars Sun 10-Feb-13 11:56:04

Morning ladies, think I'm out. Think Af was arriving last night, nothing overnight just went to the loo ( had a lazy lie in) & was red/brown when I wiped (sorry tmi) it's more like a pill period though. Ah well onto cycle number 7! Fx to the rest of u. I'm not surprise about this month been rather stressful, esp last week.

Wardy17 Sun 10-Feb-13 14:34:39

Sorry AF arrived red

QueenofClean Sun 10-Feb-13 14:50:22

Sorry AF arrived Red.

Well I have been surprised with a lovely Sunday lunch out for my birthday and my parents & inlaws were there and DH had arranged a lovely birthday cake for me bless him.

Soph80 Sun 10-Feb-13 14:51:11

Queenofclean - 16 weeks OMG!!!!

notsoold Sun 10-Feb-13 14:55:22

16 weeks??? Oh my!!!

QueenofClean Sun 10-Feb-13 15:32:38

Yeah well she wasn't planned. I had very irregular periods and the test I is earlier on in the pregnancy was bfn so didn't bother to test anymore, until I was almost 16weeks when I started getting symptoms etc. shock to say the least lol.

2RedEars Sun 10-Feb-13 15:39:56

Thanks ladies!
Ah how lovely Queen! I'm 30 soon gulp!

Haylebop12 Sun 10-Feb-13 16:56:34

Ladies, the heavy feeling in uterus sounds wet promising. I'm still getting it now at 4/5 weeks. Hunger and tiredness also although with nausea I can't decide what I want.

I've also napped the last two days. Unlike me.

Hoping its a good sign for you as it was for me.

Baby dust to all!

2RedEars Sun 10-Feb-13 17:40:09

Wishing you a healthy 9 months Hayle!

Springbells Sun 10-Feb-13 19:10:37

Well, fmu and bfn on first response, so thinking prob not my month, but as still no af, I'm holding out with you wardy, no tests til wed/thurs morning now. Then thinking docs, as will be cd40 by then, unheard of for me. Sorry to hear, red. No doubt will be on the next bus with you. Hope people are warming some seats!

lyndsey90 Sun 10-Feb-13 19:18:49

Pretty much stopped bleeding now smile
Gonna get back on it tonight!!!!!!
Eeeep, nearly a week with no BD'ing... NOT GOOD!!!

BookWormery Sun 10-Feb-13 19:22:20

What is BDing??

Wardy17 Sun 10-Feb-13 19:22:34

Spring we'll stick together!!! Although I am very tempted to test in the morning with fmu!!!

lyndsey90 Sun 10-Feb-13 19:27:02

Book Baby dancing!! (SHAGGING) LOL

Springbells Sun 10-Feb-13 20:23:27

Ooh wardy, go for it! Just don't tell the oh, if its good news he'll forgive you!grin I'm all out of tests so have to share your excitement! wink

Wardy17 Sun 10-Feb-13 20:28:34

I'll be three days late tomorrow FX!!!!

Haylebop12 Sun 10-Feb-13 20:32:16

wardy that's exciting news! Sounds promising!

Wardy17 Sun 10-Feb-13 20:37:09

I hope so. I think I may have ovulated later than I thought, if you ovulate late does that mean your period will be late or will your period normally start at the same time as normal?

Haylebop12 Sun 10-Feb-13 20:47:27

I think If you ovulate late then your period would probably be the same time but it would give it a short luteal phase.

However if you did ovulate late you could not be enough dpo to detectt hgc? So you might think your 16dpo for expample but you actually 10.

BookWormery Sun 10-Feb-13 20:51:02

Baby dancing?! Ooh no, that's a weird term! confused

Have you not tested wardy?

lyndsey90 Sun 10-Feb-13 20:54:42

Hahaha, I guess it's just a way of being less rude!

Still keeping my eye on here, come on ladies! Bring on the BFP's.

I tested BFN for ages when I should have had BFP.

FX for you all that still remain on this bus!

Wardy17 Sun 10-Feb-13 21:00:58

Yes I have tested a few times and got BFNs but if I ovulated later than I thought then maybe that's why? I don't know its all so complicated.

notsoold Sun 10-Feb-13 21:19:06

If you ovulated late and your luteal phase is normal your af will be late. If you bd and got yourself a lo the bfp will take longer to show itself....
Wardy I am still testing negative and have no symptoms, but you know hope and all that...
Fx for you!!!!

Ariel21 Sun 10-Feb-13 21:47:30

So AF is due Thurs (ish) but all my imaginary symptoms have vanished now :/ Assuming I'm probably not knocked up yet (it is only month 1 after all) so have consumed half a cider. I know, rebel rebel or what?!

Sounds like Wardy might have some promising signs - fingers crossed! Hello new people, welcome to the bus!

Wardy17 Sun 10-Feb-13 21:51:25

I hope so Ariel!!! But sounds like I could just be late because I ovulated late sad only time will tell but it's so hard to wait!!!

Haylebop12 Sun 10-Feb-13 22:13:03

ariel don't stress about the alcohol.

I went out last sat, had a belly full as I realised avoiding alcohol wasn't making a difference. Got my bfp few days later.

Disclaimer. I do feel bad now though!

BookWormery Mon 11-Feb-13 00:47:04

Don't stress about having a drink... I'm thinking it could take months and there is no way I'm giving up the drink! Moderate, of course.

I'm now 2 DPO and have such a bad tummy! blush

QueenofClean Mon 11-Feb-13 06:18:21

You know having a glass of wine a day is good for you even when pregnant.

I'm going to poas this morning. Expecting a bfn as this maybe to early or just not been lucky.

QueenofClean Mon 11-Feb-13 06:35:32

Bfn. Will test when I am officially late end of the week. Although expecting AF now.

notsoold Mon 11-Feb-13 07:49:23

Sorry for your bfn Queen!!!!

okavango Mon 11-Feb-13 07:50:09

bad luck Queen but you are not out yet! I am testing on Wednesday not feeling pg or af at the mo so bit confused.

Wardy17 Mon 11-Feb-13 08:15:48

Sorry for your BFN queen. I POAS this morning as well. BFN 4 days late now!!!

Wardy17 Mon 11-Feb-13 09:21:26

Does anyone know how I work out what my luteal phase is?

Thanks spring, sorry been busy last couple of days. Wardy if you ovulated late then your af will be late. How late do you think you ovulated?

Wardy17 Mon 11-Feb-13 09:55:46

So I normally have a 32 day cycle, today is day 36. My last period was 07/01 and I think I ovulated around the 25/01 or 26/01 I was using the clearblue digital OPKs and the 25/01 is when I got my smiley face. I'm not sure i did ovulate late, I don't ovulate on day 14 because I have a longer cycle. What do you think? X

Haylebop12 Mon 11-Feb-13 10:18:33

Wardy I'm not sure how its worked out but my last AF was also 7/1. Apparently I ovulated 22/1 but there again I do have a 27/28 day cycle.

Maybe give it a few days before a talk with the doc?

I Thought if you ovulated late then AF would still be same time but your luteal phase would be short?

Wardy17 Mon 11-Feb-13 10:30:02

Thanks Hayle, is there anyway of working out what my luteal phase is?

Haylebop12 Mon 11-Feb-13 10:35:29

Probably not as its the time from ovu to AF and in your case it sounds like it changes. If our pretty sure you ovu'd on 25/1 you would be 17 dpo. (I think)

I think you might just need to hold out tbh...

Wardy17 Mon 11-Feb-13 10:37:50

Yeah I think your right, I'll wait till Friday I will be a week late by then if AF hasn't arrived. thanks Hayle

Haylebop12 Mon 11-Feb-13 10:57:42

Can't imagine how frustrating it is.

I'm not sure hayle? I thought your luteal phase stayed roughly the same so if you ovulate late then you'd come on late but I don't know for sure. Maybe someone who does know will be ale to clarify. Fingers crossed for you wardy.
Dh and I are still dtd. Due for the day21 test towards the end of the month and then when I come on the day 1-4 test so hopefully that'll either pinpoint something wrong that can be fixed or it'll be normal and then we know its just taking time. Will be nice to have some answers.

QueenofClean Mon 11-Feb-13 11:12:22

Wardy hopefully you'll get a BFP with me on Friday.

My boobs are starting to hurt but bfn this morning so is it just there isn't enuff hormone yet for the test going insane

Haylebop12 Mon 11-Feb-13 11:13:57

quiet I honestly don't know :-/ I try not to take much notice of ovu to curb my obsession!! Hoping your test gives you some positive answers!

notsoold Mon 11-Feb-13 11:18:31

Wardy I am the same as you.... Af was due 8/9 but so far nothing....nor preggers symptoms!!!
Bfns as well so can I join you and queen on Friday testing???

Wardy17 Mon 11-Feb-13 11:19:17

queen I hope so!!! My boobs are sore but are more veiny then normal!!!

Wardy17 Mon 11-Feb-13 12:11:36

notsoold yay join us on Friday!!! Do you know when you ovulated?

notsoold Mon 11-Feb-13 12:35:55

Wardy....my cbfm never peaked and ov sticks don,t seems to like me very much. But together with ewcm and those above I thought it was on the 26th like you. I am hoping that maybe was later and that is why the tests do not show as +ive yet.... ( holding on to any thread of hope)....

Ha hayle I don't do anything to keep track of ovulation but the one sided period pain type pain lets me kno&#373;! Stupid body. Ovulation pain, period pain. It's all a bit crap really. Fingers crossed for everyone on Friday. If you can all poas early that would be great as I'm away for the weekend and won't have the Internet. smile

Oh wtf did I do there? Lets me know is what I was trying to say!

Wardy17 Mon 11-Feb-13 13:34:46

Notsoold... Sounds like we are pretty much the same date wise lets hope we'll be the same BFP wise xx

notsoold Mon 11-Feb-13 13:41:02

Wardy...let's hope so!!! smile
Quiet...I hope to see some bfps from others before Friday actuallysmile that will bring good vibes for wardy, queen and myself!!! smile

Oh my, oh my!!! Time drags!!!

BookWormery Mon 11-Feb-13 14:33:09

Friday is shaping up to be an exciting day! Good luck everyone grin

I'm feeling a bit sad that DP and I have only DTD on cycle days 10, 12 and 13. DP has a low sex drive and although it's only month two I am already frustrated.

BookWormery Mon 11-Feb-13 14:33:11

navis176 Mon 11-Feb-13 17:29:45

still bfn here...signs of af have also disappeared...waiting to see what shows up first, af or bfp!!

fx for all of you planning to test on fri - I admire your ability to hold out for another 4 days smile

Ariel21 Mon 11-Feb-13 18:12:16

I am going to test on Thurs if AF doesn't appear... Anyone else testing on Thurs?

Wardy17 Mon 11-Feb-13 18:20:18

Feeling really fed up now!! Does anyone know if increased cm is a sign of AF about to start had nothing for about 4 days and then today had some white cm sorry tmi!!!

Haylebop12 Mon 11-Feb-13 18:30:49

I have it for both impending signs of AF but also had it few days before my bfp :-) hoping its the latter for you wardy

notsoold Mon 11-Feb-13 18:35:23

No idea wardy....hope some here can enlighten you....xxxx

BeQuicksieorBeDead Mon 11-Feb-13 18:50:21

Wardy in the old days, a 'white show' was often the first confirmation of pregnancy. It is a lotion type white or yellow discharge, heavier than you would normally have, linked to increased hormones in your system which causes your inside lady bits to exfoliate themselves more often! Or something. I started off sounding knowledgeable didn't I. Anyway it is a symptom, unfortunately I get it at the end of every cycle!

Queen re the wine drinking...I have been told by my GP to stop drinking full stop as soon as I get a BFP, as he said studies have shown it can be damaging for the foetus even in small quantities. My step mum swears by a glass of wine everyday and drank all the way through her pregnancy, but it might be worth researching. Whilst TTC I think a cheeky glass now and again is vital to sanity...But lots of fertility bods recommend not drinking when ov is due, as it can delay it.

If ov is late, period should be late...FF says for most women the luteal phase never varies by more than a day in any cycle. When I thought my luteal phase was getting longer, it was just that I wasn't ovulating!

Can you tell I have been doing all the tutorials on FF?!

Springbells Mon 11-Feb-13 18:59:28

Wardy, rubbish you still have bfn this morning. Hang on in there, when are you next testing? I have the same symptoms, lots of cm, been going on for a week now, so hoping its a positive sign. I'm holding out til wed/thurs to test again. Also fed up with not knowing, a decision either way would be better than 3ww plus!

Springbells Mon 11-Feb-13 19:01:33

Ariel - it depends when ic arrive, probably also be testing Thursday fmu, what a wait!

Wardy17 Mon 11-Feb-13 19:15:26

Thanks Quick, I am on day 36 now and have been dry for about 4 days then today it's changed, prob nothing to do with pg as got BFN this morning.

Spring - going to try and wait till Friday but I just know I won't be able to.

Still no AF, another BFN this morning sad Now 10ish days late..

Springbells Mon 11-Feb-13 22:28:07

Blimey, quite a few of us waiting for an answer. Maybe there's a duff batch of tests out there... (I can but hope smile) Anyone else feeling sick? Been feeling like it since last week, gets steadily worse through the day. Generally sicky feeling throughout the day, though worse before and after eating. Bof. Was hopeful to begin with but surely if pg related the hormones would have shown by now?!

Springbells Mon 11-Feb-13 22:28:32

Ha, just read that back, 'scuse the pun!

notsoold Mon 11-Feb-13 23:29:54

Hi Spring....I don't have any symptoms at all . mind you I had none with dd and loads with ds and a little with my lo I lost in a mmc...so I never know....

BFN here. Only first month but I felt bloated and queasy but they are also stress symptoms for me. And as I've just started jury service I'm betting I'll come on when I'm sat on a trial so I'll have hideous cramps.

QueenofClean Tue 12-Feb-13 06:12:27

MsFanacker sorry about your bfn.

Re the drinking thing. As I didn't find out till I was 16/17 weeks with DD1 I drank (not a lot mind you as not a big drinker) back then and she is fine smile with DD2 i'd have a glass of wine with sunday lunch every now and then. So in moderation really and what you want to do.

Is it Friday yet?

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 07:42:52

Onto day 37 sad sigh!!!!

Spring, that's what I'm thinking if I have symptoms then surely that means there's enough hormone to detect on a test!!! Prob just imaging the symptoms!!!

QueenofClean Tue 12-Feb-13 08:04:47

So tired this morning. By 9pm last night I could barely keep my eyes open.

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 09:15:20

Me and Hubby dtd last night, if anything I thought it might bring AF on but nothing!!! 4 days late now!!! Someone stop me from going insane!!!

QueenofClean Tue 12-Feb-13 11:01:14

Wardy - maybe worth getting a blood test to check if home tests are bringing up a bfn.

Hope everyone is well today. I feel shattered. Am about to make some potato & leek soup for DD2 & me for lunch.

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 11:56:16

Queen - I will wait a week and then if nothing will call the Dr!!

notsoold Tue 12-Feb-13 12:07:27

Wardy.....I hope everything goes well for you...waiting is a killer isn't it?

Queen I love soup!!!

Still waiting over here. More and more I think that is just a wtf cycle and as I didn't have many of those after my mc and cp I can't complain reallysad but of course a part of me is hoping for a bfp on Friday....

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 12:12:15

How many days late are you now notsoold?

notsoold Tue 12-Feb-13 12:34:18

4/5 days late but because my cycles are long 31/32 days long it feels like forever, so I sympathize with you....

notsoold Tue 12-Feb-13 12:36:07

Wardy how are you distracting yourself???

I wonder when we will see some more bfps in the thread??? Anybody testing today/ tomorrow????

Springbells Tue 12-Feb-13 12:37:52

Long cycles are truly rubbish. I'm starting to wonder if I even ovulated this month. Not long off the pill, so maybe not...

Springbells Tue 12-Feb-13 12:38:55

nots.. We def need some bfp on here, it's nice to hear others' good news. Keeps me smiling!

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 12:51:48

Nots - my cycle is normally 32 days as well. I'm not really distracting myself I'm struggling big time I'm on day 37 today!!!!!

Spring - how do you know if you ovulated or not? I used clearblue OPKs and got a smiley face which means it picked up an LH surge!! Does that mean I definitely ovulated? What does it mean if you didn't ovulate?

Roll on the BFPs xx

Springbells Tue 12-Feb-13 13:01:59

Wardy, lh surge is an indicator and combined with bbt monitoring is a really good indicator, but don't know if there is a way of confirming ovulation for definite. Blood tests maybe, but not a doc so don't know. Lack of ovulation can lead to irregular periods hence my thoughts about my situation, as only just off the pill which stops ovulation. Ic should arrive tomorrow, not sure I'm going to be able to stop myself testing mid afternoon! It's got to the point I'm glad they didn't come today so i can't test and be disappointed this afternoon!

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 13:09:25

Spring - I've just done some reading and one we site says that after a mc it's POAS to have LH surge but not ovulate and this is my first cycle after mc so now I'm thinking I probably haven't ovulated, but why would that make your period late?

I'm really upset now I know it's silly to get hopes up but I was really hoping I was late coz pg and the hormone just needed some time to come through sad sorry for whinging!!!

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 13:16:42

Meant to say poss to have an LH surge

notsoold Tue 12-Feb-13 13:17:27

Wardy....sorry for you mc hun...and although I don't have any information to give regarding LH I know how awful it is afterwards during af visits and the build up of expectancy for another bfp....
Take care of yourself ....(hugs)

QueenofClean Tue 12-Feb-13 13:22:38

Wardy hopefully it's just hormones just not high enuff yet.

I feel absolutely shattered and def think AF one her ugly way sad

I had a sickness bug the week/end I was due to ovulate would that effect things at all?

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 13:32:41

Queen - I don't know about the sickness but but I hope AF is a no show for you

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 13:36:43

Nots - thank you it's good to talk to people who knows what it's like xx

Springbells Tue 12-Feb-13 13:50:33

Oh wardy, sorry if I upset you, I just know the pill can affect it, hence my post. Internet is a nightmare, I try not to google things, and there is a load of sites that cover almost every eventuality/combination/random symptom going. I also read somewhere that fertility spikes after a mc, as I said, everyone's unique and its hard to tell what's medically proved fact and what's just someone's personal experience.

Here's hoping both of us are showing bfn as not enough hormone yet. I'm going to docs on Thursday if still no af. No idea what they'll be able to do but hey, worth a shot.

Big hugs xx

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 13:57:14

Oh spring you didn't upset me at all just getting upset with the whole process!! I've read about being more fertile after mc too!! Probably best not to sit and read Internet!!

How many days late are you? Maybe I should speak to docs as well!! X

MotherOfCleo Tue 12-Feb-13 13:59:15

ladies I'm in a pickle, I have serious lower back ache, major tiredness, plus I keep feeling sick and..........I've not even OVd yet lol.
I do finally have EWCM though so should OV in the next few days. wink

MotherOfCleo Tue 12-Feb-13 14:08:51

just did an opk and got a positive so maybe that explains the back ache???? no idea re the rest though.

Springbells Tue 12-Feb-13 14:29:21

Wards - same as you, day 37. Truly fed up too, just kinda wish af would hurry up so I can get back to normal and get on with next cycle.

Mother - sounds good! As for the rest, no idea, but maybe your noticing the effort your body's putting in to ovulating this month! (See? I have no idea and make a complete guess grin)

MotherOfCleo Tue 12-Feb-13 15:13:24

spring I love the logical approach! grin

Motherofcleo I have felt sick around ovulation the last couple of months. Baffled me too but apparently its those pesky hormones.
Wardy and spring I'm sorry you're still in limbo. I had one long 38 day cycle when I'd been off the pill for a few months which I think may have been because I didn't ovulate. I'm not sure though. I got my hopes up too. not that I've done that any other month, oh no I really hope you're both late cos you up duffed!

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 16:37:58

Thanks quiet, do you know why it takes longer for your period to arrive if you haven't ovulated? My boobs are achey this afternoon not sore to touch but just an on off ache!

Do you know what I dont know, a quick google has told me nothing. I want to say something like the womb lining builds up and up and finally has to result in a period even though there's no egg to come out with it. But I have no idea really.
Sorry I can't be more helpful. Maybe someone else with a proper idea will come along soon.

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 17:36:36

Thanks Quiet - I think this is what has happened to me this month sad just hope AF arrives soon so I can start afresh

You never know wardy. Give it a few days and if no af go to docs for blood test.

Wardy17 Tue 12-Feb-13 18:21:28

Just called my docs if I book an apt the doctor won't give me a blood test I have to book another apt for a later date

Can you get the nurse to do a blood test? I dunno how long it takes results to come back for pregnancy test though. Maybe you can book docs appt for after results are back?

okavango Wed 13-Feb-13 07:27:39

morning all. Hope that today brings some answers for wardy and clean. I am still 2 days early but have to test today because I have acupuncture. bfn on an ic. is it worth getting a frer?

Springbells Wed 13-Feb-13 08:15:30

Right, well at least that answers that one! I'm off the feb bus, the witch showed herself this morning. Little disappointed but kinda glad I can move on from the waiting! Keeping everything crossed for those still waiting, we need some more bfps!

Wardy - keeping absolutely everything crossed for you, hang in there.

Wardy17 Wed 13-Feb-13 08:18:48

Oh spring sorry AF got you but glad you don't have to keep waiting anymore. Thanks for thinking of me. Still no sign of the witch FX!! X

Springbells Wed 13-Feb-13 10:42:15

Wardy, thank you. Will be lurking on this thread looking out for some good news x

sambrads Wed 13-Feb-13 12:07:40

hey ladies havent been on in ages.

i am on day 35 and still no AF but defo not preggers as i have alot of BFN sad
On sunday night i was woke up with terrible cramping and pressure in my bits and it was the worst pain i have ever had before any of my periods. i was sure AF would have arrived by now but nothing. im soooooo fed up and pissed off and if OH asks me to stop stressing one more time i am gonna hit him !!!!
how are you not ment to stress?
wardy really feel ur pain as im in the same boat.
hope to see some more BFP soon and hope everyone is ok

Wardy17 Wed 13-Feb-13 13:17:03

I'm getting lots of BFNs too sad just want AF to hurry up and arrive now. Are you sure it could be that you don't have high enough levels of the hormone yet?

sambrads Wed 13-Feb-13 13:33:02

i dont think i would get a BFP now do you fee hopeful? its so hard to know i have heard and read so many things i realy dont have a cue what to think. I have felt like AF was coming but dont now confused but im sure it wi come. i used a first response and im sure that would tell you. I aways got a BFP the day i was due AF so dont think this time would be any different.

how are you feeling?

Hormones change all the time ladies, sometimes it can take weeks for your hormones to be strong enough to detect it a bfp. I have my fingers crossed for all of you on the bus x

Wardy17 Wed 13-Feb-13 14:37:00

sam I felt like AF was coming too I was really bloated and moody but now I don't feel like anything really not AF or pg. I thought I was having some pg symptoms but not now. I have been reading to much really about people not getting BFP until 1 week or 2 weeks late but if I really think I have had too many BFNs if AF hasn't arrived by Friday I am off to docs for a blood test! Do you have any symptoms at all? X

sambrads Wed 13-Feb-13 15:22:36

i have just read back over my last post and realised i have not put one L into my words lol very strange LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL grin

ward i had every symptom my boobs were so sore i couldnt bare to touch them was sick and just didnt feel right at all. On sunday night I was really scared didnt know what to think. Google is a scary thing to have i have read that many things my head is pickled. I think the more i want AF to arrive now the longer it wont but i cant hep stressing.
I dont feel anything at all now just stil very bloated i look about 6 months pregnant. I hate wanting to be pregnant so bad and its only my first month of TTC. I had fertility issues before and i hope there not coming back.
sorry for being such a moan just fed up now. sad

love thank you grin

Wardy17 Wed 13-Feb-13 15:43:21

Your not a moan at all!!! I feel exactly the same are you going to POAS again? Or speak to doc?

navis176 Wed 13-Feb-13 17:27:33

I'm out - good luck to those of you still waiting....

sambrads Wed 13-Feb-13 18:12:13

I tested again this morning and BFN dont know why i bother but have oads of IC so not costing much.
If AF doesnt come by weekend i will go to the GP on monday just to see what they say probably cant do much.
are you gonna see GP?

Wardy17 Wed 13-Feb-13 18:35:48

I called and spoke to doc on the phone he said I have to wait 2 weeks before they would do a blood test!! More waiting for me then!!

Ladies I need some advice, today I noticed that I had clear stringy cm does this mean I could be ovulating now? I'm on day 38 today with no AF since 07/01! What do you think?

BookWormery Wed 13-Feb-13 19:05:30

Bloody hell wardy you must be tearing your hair out!!

Wardy17 Wed 13-Feb-13 19:12:01

You could say that book!!!

MotherOfCleo Wed 13-Feb-13 19:20:25

wardy get some ovulation sticks then you'll know for sure. I would assume you're oving and dtd just incase wink

Oh wardy no idea! Dtd just in case. Your doc is stupid!!
Sorry to those who've been to by the witch x

MadPenney32 Thu 14-Feb-13 07:39:50

Into my 2ww now. I was on the commute to work and I couldn't help but imagine what it would be like to invent a bracelet that a woman trying to conceive could wear which would alert her to when she is ovulating, by say changing colour like a mood ring or making a noise, like a sort of 'time to shag' alarm. It would surely b less frustrating (and messy lol).

I let my mind wander and it goes strange places haha

Fingers crossed for everyone's BFPs x

notsoold Thu 14-Feb-13 13:03:41

I could not wait anymore!!!
So I Poas and BFP!!!
Not the darkest of lines as I am 5/6 days late but nevertheless.....

Hope it is a sticky bean!!!

Wardy17 Thu 14-Feb-13 13:23:22

Woo hoo nots that's great news, so happy for you xx

Congrats nots. Let hope there's lots more bfp on this thread including me

Wardy17 Thu 14-Feb-13 13:56:57

Any sign of AF Quiet?

notsoold Thu 14-Feb-13 15:02:17

Thanks Wardy Quiet... I am waiting for your BFPS now!!! And Queen's.....

I'm not due till end of the month wardy. I'm still in the dtd phase. I'm not holding my breath to be honest. Each month is a disappointment and I'm struggling to be excited about ttc at the mo.

Wardy17 Thu 14-Feb-13 15:11:24

I know how you feel. I hope this is your month Quiet.

The not knowing is finally over, AF has arrived in horrific glory on the one day I actually didn't want her to! I am hoping that my body has now finally settled after coming off the pill and next month will be our month! Good luck ladies!

Good luck for next month blonde.

Ariel21 Thu 14-Feb-13 18:37:01

Well AF arrived this morning, right on cue. At least I think she has, still waiting for it to kick in properly. At least I can get on the wine tonight! Congrats on your BFP notsoold and I hope I won't see too many of you on the March bus!

Wardy17 Thu 14-Feb-13 18:56:05

So nearly at the end of day 39 and still no AF! Going to test in the morning with fmu as will be 1 week late if BFN going to have to wait as doc won't give me blood test until 2 weeks late. Kind of got used to this waiting now !!!!!

Springbells Thu 14-Feb-13 19:25:36

Yay notsoold, congratulations! Wardy - just popped up to let you know went to docs today, they're doing a blood test and will check thyroid function. Maybe worth speaking to another gp, as even if you get af you may not be ovulating as cycle is so long. Af coming wont tell you this apparently. However, still keeping my fingers and toes crossed for bfp for you x

Wardy17 Thu 14-Feb-13 19:40:53

Hi spring - thanks for letting me know. Really don't mean this to sound rude but can a thyroid problem affect any ages?

QueenofClean Thu 14-Feb-13 19:49:12

Happy Valentines Ladies!

BookWormery Thu 14-Feb-13 20:12:38

I can answer that Wardy - yes it can affect all ages and once diagnosed is usually a lifelong problem. smile

Springbells Thu 14-Feb-13 20:27:09

Wardy, not offended at all! And glad someone knows the answer as I know very little about under active thyroid. Holding off doing research as don't see the point of worrying myself with Internet info before I have the results! shame I'm not so restrained when it comes to early pregnancy symptoms grin

Wardy17 Thu 14-Feb-13 20:38:51

Thanks book and spring.

I will prob give it a few cycles and see what happens, this is my first proper cycle after mc so could be late because of that, but stupidly I am still hoping I'm late due to pg wink

lyndsey90 Thu 14-Feb-13 21:09:46

Congrats notsoold smile xx

Springbells Thu 14-Feb-13 21:33:58

Sorry wardy, was being daft. fx for fmu tomoz.

Wardy17 Thu 14-Feb-13 21:35:47

Spring no you weren't I really appreciate the advice

notsoold Thu 14-Feb-13 21:49:05

Thanks ladies....I really want all of us joining the ante natal together so dtdall the time.....xxx

QueenofClean Fri 15-Feb-13 06:44:02

Wardy hope you can see someone to have a BT.

Congrats Notso.

Well AF is here (not bleeding yet tho) got the familiar cramps etc and don't even feel pregnant. So end of Feb beginning of March will be lucky for us!

pinkmoonlight Fri 15-Feb-13 07:46:46

After having no internet for a week (and also no husband as he's gone on holiday for a week) my fiirst thought was to check in on our lovely bus passengers.

And then this morning I got a BFP!!!!!!!!! I'm sat here by myself with a massive grin on my face! grin

Congrats haylebop and FX to all smile

notsoold Fri 15-Feb-13 08:39:32

Pink congratulations!!! What a lovely way to start Friday!!

sambrads Fri 15-Feb-13 08:55:24

congrats notso and pink grin

ward how you feeling now?

for the ladies who were asking about thyroid problems i have got an underactive thyroid i developed it after DC1. i had no problems concieving DC1 but with DC2 i had to get fertility treatment as i wasnt having any periods and therefore not ovulating so after i got my thyroid levels good i had to get treatment to kick start my ovaries.
if you think u may have a thyroid problem defo get checked out its very important to be monitored well in pregnancy.

Wardy17 Fri 15-Feb-13 09:50:11

Morning ladies, tested with fmu this morning, one week late and still BFN. Definitely think that I poss didn't ovulate this cycle. Just wish AF would arrive now so I can move on to next cycle. Don't feel like AF is going to come but don't feel pg either.

Congrats pink

Wardy17 Fri 15-Feb-13 12:40:44

Losing my mind!!!

Springbells Fri 15-Feb-13 13:27:05

Congratulations pink!

Thanks for the info sambrads. Suspect this may be the route I've gone. Will know by middle of next week.

Wordy - sad hugs x

Springbells Fri 15-Feb-13 13:27:25

Bloody autocorrect.....

notsoold Fri 15-Feb-13 14:29:13

Wardy....could it mean that you ovulated late or are about to? If you ovulated late or about to is annoying but hopefully you dtd at the right time...xxxx

Wardy17 Fri 15-Feb-13 14:38:00

Possibly nots but I went a week during the 2ww without Dtd because I thought I had ovulated so if I didn't ovulate late I've probably missed it!! The Opk I was using said I ovulated around the 25/01 but I have since found out that you can have an LH surge and not ovulate.

This ttc is hardwork!!!

bluefreckles Fri 15-Feb-13 14:44:20

I'm out. Aunt Flo just turned up and she's proper mad. angry

Springbells Fri 15-Feb-13 15:10:30

Ladies, anyone using a conception/fertility app to chart dates etc?

Wardy17 Fri 15-Feb-13 15:27:49

Does anyone know if I have missed my period because I didn't ovulate this cycle.....how will I know when I'm due to ovulate again?

QueenofClean Fri 15-Feb-13 16:53:49

I've still not started bleeding so there is hope still! smile

Wardy I have no idea in regards to your question x

pinkmoonlight Fri 15-Feb-13 17:55:51

Thanks ladies! grin My DH is due home any minute so I've just dashed into town like a mad person to buy him a 'happy valentines day daddy' card. I had to ask the shop staff to let me look through the pile of cards that they had taken down- they thought I was a total nutter!

I use fertility friend wardy smile

Ariel21 Fri 15-Feb-13 18:37:31

I downloaded the Fertility Friend app but it befuddled me so I deleted it. I use Ladytimer, which I have found useful for recording symptoms and supposedly working out when ovulation/period is due to occur.

Congrats pink ! A happy and smooth 9 months to you.

After thinking AF had arrived yesterday, all I've had was some slight spotting, first red now brown. What's all this about? Should I do a test?! Only guessing at a 28 day cycle so might not even be late yet.

notsoold Fri 15-Feb-13 18:51:11

Spring I use "my days"....nice and easy.

Bluefreckles sorry about the witch...x

Queen....excellent news!!! Fx for you!!!

Pink well done you...

Wardy...it is very stressful this ttc...xxx

Wardy17 Fri 15-Feb-13 18:54:37

Really down today. Definitely not pg, no sign of AF don't know when I'm going to come on therefore have no idea when I will ovulate again and all this now puts me back at least a month maybe two. I know there's no rush but I'm feeling really sorry for myself sad

sambrads Fri 15-Feb-13 19:08:02

wardy i know the feeling sad i justt wish AF woud come now so I can start trying again. havent a clue when thats gonna happen. i think when ur AF comes just DTD every other day from CD10 unti CD 28 and hopefully you will get the right time. big hugs for you xox

Springbells Fri 15-Feb-13 20:00:19

Wardy, from the reading I've done, if you get the lh surge and the cm linked to ovulation, likelihood is you will ovulate. It's rare not to if you have the indicators present, although it does happen occasionally. I didn't have a positive opk this month, hence thinking lack of ovulation. As you have had a mc it is likely you will ovulate next cycle, as you've done so before, but it may be this ones out of kilter due to mc. Use opks and at least if you don't get a positive you've got someone to take to the docs if you have a long cycle again. I can guess how you feel (would never consider saying I know) , last cycle was a killer and it wasn't the first. But we're all here when you need us x.

Oh, ps just had a thought, I'm sure I saw someone saying there's a herbal remedy/vitamin to help regulate cycles, can anyone shed any light?

lyndsey90 Fri 15-Feb-13 20:09:59

I don't know when I'm due to have af or ovulatd due to mc.... So confused!!

BeQuicksieorBeDead Fri 15-Feb-13 20:15:32

Pink and Notso well done! Brilliant news!

Sorry I haven't been on here this week, work has been so busy that I haven't been on mumsnet at all! Unheard of!

Wardy it is possible to have a pos OPK and not ovulate, and it is possible to have no pos OPK and ovulate! They are useful but can miss your surge, or your surge might naturally not be high enough to trigger them. I have never had a positive OPK but I know I ovulate as I have been pregnant! Temping is more accurate, but only tells you that you have already Ov'd that cycle, and a day 21 blood test is supposedly the only way to 100% confirm ovulation.

My GP recently tested me for thyroid issues (hypothyroid) because of wacky long cycles and low body temperature. They did one blood test and managed to rule out PCOS, thyroid, cancer, menopause....and they did that after just two longer than usual cycles. It really annoys me that some GPs will do tests and spend a few quid on you, whilst others will fob you off indefinitely.

So this week I have had sore boobs (since 4 dpo), pink spotting on Wednesday and nausea when not shovelling food in my gob. Trying to keep a lid on hopefulness...11 dpo so I should probably test!

Springbells Fri 15-Feb-13 20:17:07

Ariel, notsoold, thanks for the tips, will have a look a those!

BeQuicksieorBeDead Fri 15-Feb-13 20:41:46

Spring agnus castus is supposed to help regulate cycles. But then I have heard other people on forums saying it has had the opposite effect! If you google it you will read positive and negative stuff. I have also heard good things about taking B vitamins to regulate cycles, particularly if you problem is a shortened luteal phase...B6 and B12 I think. And good old Evening Primrose has long form for regulating and calming cycles...but don't use it after ov as it isn't good if you are up-duffed.

BeQuicksieorBeDead Fri 15-Feb-13 20:46:58

And for anyone wondering about not ovulating, I would heartily recommend temperature charting. It is a bit of a faff initially and you have to remember to set your alarm, but I can't tell you how much of a relief it was to see the temperature shift happening, even though my chart looks like the rocky mountains. You can't fake a temperature change and it also tells you pretty much to the day when to expect your AF...so you know for certain if you are late!

Another plus that people report (and I hope to find out!) is that you know without taking a test if you are pregnant, due to the continued high temps coming up to AF. Fingers crossed!

Anyway I have only just started charting so if anyone wants a novice's guide from a green as cabbage beginner, I could very well be your woman!

Springbells Fri 15-Feb-13 21:21:50

Ooh quicksie, sounds positive, when are you planning on testing? And has the bbt been elevated since ovulation? Find this stuff fascinating, and thanks for the tips on the supplements. By the sounds of it though there's all sorts of effects they could have. Will give it another cycle to see if it settles down I think.

BeQuicksieorBeDead Fri 15-Feb-13 21:58:04

Spring that sounds really sensible...I read so often about people who have tried about 8 different things in one month! I can see how it happens though, patience is not easy to find when TTC!

My bbt has been elevated since ovulation, so I know I ovulated. It has stayed above my 'coverline' temperature for 11 days now...I think I might test tomorrow as I am supposed to be going out on a big one with my mate, the drink is one thing (thanks Queen for the voice of reason), but the certainty of falling over at least once is another!

Will update here if I do test, I promise! After MMC last year, I am scared to know too early, it is so long til the 12 week scan! Also, if I am pregnant, my due date will be exactly the same as last year...how freaky is that! And my due date will be halloween. Cue Twilight Zone music!

Wardy17 Fri 15-Feb-13 22:02:49

Thanks for all the advice and tips ladies!! Will just wait for AF to arrive then just dtd every other day should cover all my bases that way. I will give it a couple more cycles before I start temping

QueenofClean Fri 15-Feb-13 22:40:10

Still no bleeding yet & I was sure AF was going to show her ugly face today.

Wardy I use iPeriod app on my iPhone and it helps me with tracking my period and also tells me the week I'm due to ovulate and it worked for conceiving DD2 grin

Wardy17 Fri 15-Feb-13 23:28:26

Thanks Queen!!! FX AF doesn't arrive for you x

QueenofClean Sat 16-Feb-13 07:06:09

Am officially 1 day late today. Will see if I come on today if not will test in morning smile

Hope you get some answers soon.

MrsO27 Sat 16-Feb-13 07:17:43

Can I get on the bus? Just got my BFP! Desperate to share the news with someone as we've devided to wait until 12 weeks before telling anyone else. Only just joined mumsnet last night so this is all new to me! Been trying since December. Tested negative day before af due, but positive (and not even a faint positive) 2 days later! Yay! Would make me 5 weeks pregnant this coming Monday and a due date of 24th October. Anyone else in the same boat (or bus?). Anyway, hope I've not just crashed a party. As I said, all new to me on here so don't know the rules/etiquette! (grin)

MrsO27 Sat 16-Feb-13 07:20:34

I can't even get the smileys right on this pesky phone! wrong brackets, doh! grin blush

QueenofClean Sat 16-Feb-13 07:43:25

Welcome MrsO take a seat and grab a hobnob smile

MrsO27 Sat 16-Feb-13 09:36:05

Hobnob grabbed brew Hi all

flowersfortea Sat 16-Feb-13 09:48:39

Morning all. Gosh this thread has quite a pace, trying to keep up with you all. Not much new here to report, day 37 of my cycle so far, just wondering how long to leave it before poas? I'm thinking next weekend because last cycle was 39 days, plus due to both being stressed with work (both overtime and I started a chaotic new job) I'm not convinced that we were very timely Dtd!

Wardy17 Sat 16-Feb-13 10:36:14

8 days late today.....BFN that's my last test. Definitely not pg so just going to wait to AF!!

Good luck to everyone else I have my fx for you xxx

QueenofClean Sat 16-Feb-13 11:16:23

I'm officially a day late now so will poas in morning if nothing.

Wardy get a BT

Wardy17 Sat 16-Feb-13 11:39:19

Queen my doc won't give me one until I'm two weeks late which is next friday

QueenofClean Sat 16-Feb-13 12:39:37

DH asked me to poas earlier and was negative so think just waiting game for her big ugly red face to make an appearance sad

BeQuicksieorBeDead Sat 16-Feb-13 13:14:43

BFN this morning...Gahhhh! Sorry to hear others are in the same leaky old boat! I am trying not to convince myself that 12 dpo is too early to test! Ha ha! Well at least the sore bbs must mean my hormones are doing something. Even if it is not what they are supposed to do....sods.

MrsO congrats on the bfp...is it your first?

Flowers get testing love, we need some more good news!

Right, off to paint my nails with cheap glittery goop, dye hair inappropriate colour for my age and drink fizzy cider pop until I fall over.

BookWormery Sat 16-Feb-13 13:17:28

Boo Queen sad

I'm 8-10dpo and just tested and got a BFN

QueenofClean Sat 16-Feb-13 13:20:42

Tbh I don't think I preggers tho as week I ovulated we had the sodding bug. Never mind!

BeQuicksieorBeDead Sat 16-Feb-13 13:22:31

Book sorry to hear that. But you could genuinely be too early to test.

pinkmoonlight Sat 16-Feb-13 13:44:15

Congrats Mrs O27- your due date is the day before mine! smile

Have a great time bequick!

Book 13dpo I got a bfn so it might just be too early- fingers crossed for you smile

BeQuicksieorBeDead Sat 16-Feb-13 13:45:54

Pink you are giving me hope! Perhaps I could do another test tomorrow...

BookWormery Sat 16-Feb-13 16:43:40

Have my boobs always hurt this much? Have I just not noticed it before TTC?

flowersfortea Sat 16-Feb-13 18:41:42

Book I was completely flummoxed by the boob thing, since coming off the pill and I can't remember noticing them being sore before! For me seems to be in the week or two before AF, although this month nadda. weird bodies huh!

Congrats Mrs 027

Wardy17 Sat 16-Feb-13 18:47:00

Queen it's not over until AF arrives!!!

Book it could be too early to tell.

Anyone here think its possible for me to be pg? I'm 8 days late and every test I do it's BFN. No sign of AF at all. I've read so many things where people have said they never got a BFP with a HPT it was only with a blood test they got a positive, has this happened to anyone?

I'm clutching a straws I know!!!

BookWormery Sat 16-Feb-13 19:08:02

What"s your background Wardy? (Sorry if I have missed it) Normal cycles every month for a long time? Or just off the pill or something else?

MrsO27 Sat 16-Feb-13 21:58:34

Hi, thanks for all the congrats and fingers crossed for all those waiting. Yes, it is my first so very excited, scared, worried.....Too many emotions. And if it makes you feel better Book I tested at 13dpo and it was negative so still a chance for you. I was sure I was just getting my period as my main symptom so far has been (what feels like pms) cramping. Been a bit tired. No sore boobs (just a bit bigger!). No nausea. Maybe that's all still to come! Oh, did have an unusually itchy mole on my hand and a new one appear on my back which I have found out is linked to pregnancy! Weird!
pinkmoonlight congrats! Is there another forum for people due around the same time as us? This is all new to me and there seem to be a lot of forums!

Wardy17 Sat 16-Feb-13 22:37:27

book had a mc in nov at 11 weeks been trying since then my first and only period since the mc was the 7th Jan. I used OPKs and got a smiley face on the 25th Jan, dtd all week leading up to the positive OPK and the few days after it. Now 8 days late not really had any cm apart from 1 day in the week where it seemed to be clear and then today which is creamy. Nipples at one point where bigger and darker, now they are normal colour but still bigger but don't know if I'm imagining symptoms now!!

QueenofClean Sun 17-Feb-13 07:34:34

Still no AF!

Ariel21 Sun 17-Feb-13 10:07:16

Oh here she is! AF has arrived, properly this time. Don't know what the 2 days spotting then 1 day nothing was all about. Did a test last night and everything! Bfn obviously, should have waited til this morning. Good luck everyone, I'm off to the March bus!

BookWormery Sun 17-Feb-13 10:54:41

Sorry about your mc Wardy. It all sounds v strange! The only thing I can think of perhaps is that the mc left something behind and it is interfering with your cycle <unhelpful>

Or of course you may be preg and your body simply isn't showing the hormone yet.

How long until the doc's now?

Wardy17 Sun 17-Feb-13 13:38:23

Book apt on Friday but then they won't do the blood test then I will get forms filled in by doc and have to book another apt for blood test

BeQuicksieorBeDead Sun 17-Feb-13 14:23:30

Wardy my cycles were so strange after my MMC. It could be that you had an LH surge but didn't ovulate on the 25th. Or you could be having a very long luteal phase for some reason! If you had retained products I am pretty sure you would know about it by now, you would most likely have a high temperature, bleeding and pain. I hope that what actually happens is that your blood test reveals a BFP...You are really fertile after a MC but hormones are doing their own thing so perhaps your levels aren't triggering the POASs.

Sorry to hear about your af Ariel. For the last few months I have been having the spotting pattern you describe. I hope it is just our progesterone levels refusing to go down and putting up a fight before giving up!

I am spotting more heavily today, feel fat and fed up so it looks like Aunt Flo is on the way! Hopefully she will turn up with 4 huge suitcases and a cat's bum gob. The bitch.

See you on the March bus!

BeQuick is right, don't know why I thought that, sorry.

I hope the doc can help xx

Book you shouldn't be sorry, the ladies on MN talked me in to going to the GP after my MMC, follow up scans seem very rare so retained products aren't picked up until you get symptoms of infection! I was lucky and didn't have any, but it took a long while to sort out and a very long time to convince anyone that a scan might help to rule it out. I guess they are expensive to do. How are you doing anyway?

Thanks Book and Quick for your advice. Going to try and get a sooner docs appointment then Friday as I just want to know now. I have cheapy pg tests so I'm doing 1 every morning at the moment even though I think I'm not pg I'm checking just in case. Can't believe I'm 9 days late. I hope my bodies not playing cruel tricks on me.

Quick - sorry to hear AF got you!!

BookWormery Sun 17-Feb-13 17:01:52

I'm ok Book. Still have my 8dpo bfn in mind so not counting on anything other than AF arriving by Friday. We only DTD 3x over the fertile time too.

I did buy a thermometer earlier though so am going to start charting my temperature. No idea what I'm doing though so will have to google!!

Where's everyone else? It's quite quiet on the bus at the moment!!

BookWormery Sun 17-Feb-13 17:02:32

Gah, I meant 'I'm ok BeQuick'!!!

Talking to myself again.... grin

Hi everyone been away for a couple of days so am just catching up. Wardy I cannot believe you still don't know. Hope you get a quicker docs appt.
Well if by any slim chance I was pregnant already then I have pickled it as I got horribly drunk on Friday. Horribly. Just got back today and had loads of cm yesterday so have probably missed it chance this month anyway! So not expecting much to happen but have got blood test soon so if we don't get pregnant then at least investigations are starting.

Hm, just noticed this thermometer only does it to one point. So it says 36.9 rather than 36.93 or something. Is this no good?
