Well I am dusting down the drivers seat and kick starting the April bus for those the BFP fairy missed on the lucky Mad March bus. Fingers crossed the destination for this one is 'Baby Central'.

barebranches Fri 08-Mar-13 13:29:08

Me!! Bfp due today... af came instead.

MrsTwinks Fri 08-Mar-13 13:53:39

aww barebranches that sucks. Personally I think the BFP positive fairy needs to be fired and replaced.

wine for everyone (especially those still hosting the unwelcome visitor) .. except you padster seeing as you're driving

ELA88 Fri 08-Mar-13 15:51:22

Ladies! I would like to climb aboard the April bus please! I come bearing pâté, wine and fine foods I was struck down with AF yesterday! I think we do need more spreading of baby dust or something because these bfn are rubbish! Xxx

padster75 Fri 08-Mar-13 16:02:33

Awww bare, my af showed up today too, about to re-do the hot water bottle, want a top up too?

twinks good to see you here, but by the same token gutted to see you here IYKWIM

Pre-seed lube and his and hers conception vitamins on order ready for the DTD frenzy to commence!!! grin BFP due 2 days before my 31st birthday so keeping everything crossed! Hopefully we'll all make it off this bus before the May bus arrives. I've never been a fan of public transport so the sooner we're off here the better! Here's to a weekend of wine for us!!

good luck ladies, I heard this was a lucky bus so hope for lots of positive pee sticks grin

MotherOfCleo Fri 08-Mar-13 21:45:17

ok so ive stopped relying on the good fairy to bring the bfp so ive sent a private eye to find the witch and lock her up.....fx he finds her before she finds you guys wink

chocoloulou33 Fri 08-Mar-13 22:55:07

Thanks cleo hope everything goes well with u. Will miss u on the buses xx
marie tell me more about the his & hers vits, where did u get them from, how much etc x

MotherOfCleo Fri 08-Mar-13 23:32:12

I shall lurk and keep an eye on you all every now and again if that's ok smile

deliasmithy Sat 09-Mar-13 08:53:48

I kicked myself off the March bus a few days ago, it's raining so had enough of standing outside!

Deliasmithy, 29, TTC #1 bfp due 4th April

marie456 Sat 09-Mar-13 10:54:13

All the best cleo!
choc I went on amazon. The his and hers conception vits by pregnacare (30 each in a box) and the pre seed lube (apparently nutritious to the swimmers and helps them on their way(!), came to £28.28. Bit steep but worth a try! Think the vits were £12 and lube around £16. There was a conceive plus lube as well that was bit cheaper (around 12), but after online research pre seed seemed to have more positive reviews. Good luck to us all! Last day of af today so wishing away the days to ovulation. Drank some left over champers from Christmas last night in prep for doing without the drink now for hopefully 9months plus! Fingers crossed! Xx

Zeuxippe Sat 09-Mar-13 14:58:06

Hello can I join please? just getting back on a bus after mc at the end of January. Stats below

Zeu ttc #2 cycle 2 bfp due 11th April

Good luck everyone!

ELA88 Sat 09-Mar-13 19:32:11

Hey zeu welcome! Sorry to hear about your mc but fx for BFP in April.

Just wondering ladies if anyone is taking evening primrose oil from cd1 till ov? I've read it's supposed to help with fertility and producing better ewcm but don't know if it's worth a try? Xxx

Zeuxippe Sun 10-Mar-13 09:12:56

Thanks ela. Yes I'm taking epo, 1000mg a day from start of cycle until cd10. Think it does definitely help with making more ewcm x

whiterose2011 Sun 10-Mar-13 15:42:43

Can I join too?

TTC#1, cycle 6 after a mc in September. I fell pg in first cycle after coming off the pill but then mc'd at 9 weeks. Life is a total b*t*h sometimes - my baby would have been due in 19 days if all had worked out and I'm gutted that I'm not pg yet.

AF due 2nd April.

FX for us all this month xx

Ganetgob Sun 10-Mar-13 19:14:50

I'm gonna get on too if that's ok?

I got my AF today, seems a bit cruel on Mother's Day but ho hum!

I'm ganetgob, ttc#1, cycle 3, bfp due on 7th April.

weechops Sun 10-Mar-13 20:34:09

Hey ladies I see a couple of familiar faces. I've been off the busses since mc in January as dh has been working away and kept missing ov . but looks like he may be home for march ov woohoo!

I've started taking EPO on Friday when AF arrived so we will see if it makes any difference to cm, also read that it may bring ov forward slightly which would be great for us if dh has to leave a couple of days before ov!

So my stats: weechops TTC #3 cycle 10 bfp due 5th April. smile

Sunshine2013Hopefully Sun 10-Mar-13 22:23:09

Hi everyone, can I jump on the bus as well plz?

Had an early mc in january and now a bit desperate to get pregnant again before I hav to change my username! smile

padster75 Mon 11-Mar-13 10:30:50

Here's hoping I have you all on the passenger list. Apologies if I have left you off. Brain isn't for functioning today, DS got injured playing rugby yesterday, so have semi-crippled child doped up on painkillers driving me mental and completely buggering up the daily routine!! (Not to mention a phone call to the boss to see if I could wangle today and possibly tomorrow off to look after the poor love).

Bajas ttc #1 cycle 7. Bfp due... God knows when- on phone so can't post list. If someone can add me I'd appreciate it.

chocoloulou33 Mon 11-Mar-13 23:06:55

Thanks marie hi delia bajas padster we seem to have been on these buses for too long girls, think we should be getting off soon don't you!!!
Hey weechops I remember u from other buses. Sorry about your mc. Truly horrible experience that I've been thru twice b4 I had dd. Sorry to hear about your mc too zeu & white your on the lucky april bus now though smile xx
Sorry not been on here much. Am trying not too obsess this month. Think we're gonna go down the js'ing route. About a week away from ov but had a fun day of js yesterday & was so nice not worrying about all the shit that comes with ttc. Will see how the month goes xxx

Bajas Tue 12-Mar-13 06:42:02

Yes choc all the names becoming familiar all right. This month I want us all to stay familiar but on the due in December bus with our bfps!

whiterose2011 Tue 12-Mar-13 11:46:06

Wouldn't that be the best Xmas present ever! smile

Keeping everything crossed! Xx

ELA88 Tue 12-Mar-13 12:10:55

I hope were all on the due in December bus too! I don't want to be on maternity leave during the 6 weeks holidays but then if it takes another 2 or 3 cycles i would have to go back to work with a like 4 month old baby! Hmm silly job! Xxx

Springbells Tue 12-Mar-13 13:25:09

Right, onwards and upwards, have had a sulk, now for some retail therapy and some positive thinking for some lovely Christmas presents!

Hi can a newbie join? (new to the bus that is!).

Ttc our second, first month of 'just shagging' but am already obsessing - wasnt like this with the first. DDs bfp on second month, so am stressing that it was a fluke and Ill be boarding many many a bus this time round.

Right,off to read the whole thread!

MortifiedAdams Tue 12-Mar-13 20:56:06

Oh and according to my calander AF due 1st April (is that the same date I would POAS?)

Zeuxippe Wed 13-Mar-13 07:08:01

Hello to all the newbies!

Mortified it depends which test you're using as to when to test. Some people try FRER which you can take before your period is due and there are also some ultra sensitive ics that are similar.

Most tests are for after your period is due though, can test from the day you expect af. Less chance of a chemical pregnancy then.

Hope that helps!

Bajas Wed 13-Mar-13 19:02:36

Thanks springbells. Feeling a but more positive today. Af coming to an end so getting ready to start trying again.

Long weekend coming up here (N Ireland so bank holiday on mon for St Paddy's day) so plenty of energy to give it another try!

DogandBeth Wed 13-Mar-13 20:18:02

Hello is it ok if I hop on the bus too please? Just fell off the march one earlier today, due to a (rather late so I'd got my hopes up) visit from af.
Would someone mind adding me to the list please? I'm on my phone with no pc access for a few days and can't get it to copy and paste.
My cycles seem a bit messed up at the mo, prob due to the fact I'm still bfing dc2 although we're down to 1 feed a day so I'm hoping we can stop it completely soon.

lisbapalea Thu 14-Mar-13 11:05:07

Hi all!
Can I join? Am stupidly still on the March bus as AF due on 22nd Mar but as we didn't DTD at all because of poorly DD and her associated sleep disaster I can guarantee that it'll be AF and not a BFP that arrives on 22nd Mar!

I have short cycles so am a bit worried that I may actually ovulate while still on AF or that my luteal phase is short. Am going to try to stress less about that if I can though, as I got myself so worked up with worrying and symptom spotting in cycle#1 that DH got a bit worried!

So my details are:
Lisbapalea TTC#2 cycle 3 AF/BFP due 14April

Hi lady's, can I please join this bus as AF chucked me overboard on the old bus. Do bring with me biscuits if that will influence whether I can have a window seat.
My stats are:

And so begins the sex marathon grin cd8 today and planning on dtd every day til dh has to leave for work on cd14. I'm hoping that the Evening Primrose Oil might bring ov forward by a day, but if not at least I know I've tried something new this cycle.

padster75 Fri 15-Mar-13 13:33:56

Weechops you and I are definitely thinking along the same lines. I wont POAS until you do wink

MortifiedAdams Fri 15-Mar-13 13:58:13

Ive had a manic week at work, no awake time with dh for dtd-ing so I best preorder a seat on the May bus.....might manage a bit tonight but doubtful!

Anyone else get ovulation pain? I.dont want to feel that pain and not make it worth my while.

ELA88 Fri 15-Mar-13 16:00:16

Haha weechops that is the same as me! I started taking the evening primrose oil last week and am awaiting any signs of ov!! I'm in cd10 and def not poas this month until AF is proper late (fooled me this month starting 2 days late :-( fx to everyone!! April MUST be the month for us! Xxx

Bajas Fri 15-Mar-13 16:13:49

I'm cd 5 and Af just coming to an end but not going to even try and predict ov days at the minute with crazy cycles so as of tomorrow am dtd every 2 days come hell or high water. Determined April is going to be my month!

LondonSuperTrooper Fri 15-Mar-13 17:11:28

Hi, I need to board this bus after I was rudely thrown off the March one sad

Thanks for reminding me about EPO Ela - I need to re-start taking them for this cycle - CD1 today.

weechops Fri 15-Mar-13 19:43:54

Ela how rude of af to get your hopes up like that! Hmm well fx she stays well away this month.

Padster OK you are my poas buddy. And willpower boosterer smile no poas til April 5th (or maybe 4th if we can't hold out)

barebranches Fri 15-Mar-13 19:45:22

so im entering sex week... but so stressed at work... determined it will not get in the way!!! good luck everyone on the bus!!

Bajas Fri 15-Mar-13 20:32:07

barebranches nothing worse than work stress. Mine not a pleasant place to be at the minute either. Yet another reason the bfp would be a good thing- the maternity leave grin

ELA88 Fri 15-Mar-13 21:09:02

Haha bajas I was moaning about work today at work and someone said "just get pregnant! You can go on maternity leave then!" I'm trying!! It's just not that easy apparently! Xxx

barebranches Fri 15-Mar-13 21:13:32

def bajas... thats the plan!!!

chocoloulou33 Fri 15-Mar-13 21:24:22

Evening ladies. Have literally just sat down, what a day!!! Have worn my onesie all day 2day for comic relief. We all raised some money at the school. I got some strange looks walking to & from work!
Well cd13 I did an ov test 2day & it was -ve so think I'm gonna ov late like last month. Hope my cycles don't start getting rly long again. Dp working 2nite but will have to get busy 2moro night methinks x

Shoegal30 Sat 16-Mar-13 13:15:31

Hi guys I would love to join the bus too please as AF turned up last week - boo!

After a few months of unsuccessful TTC am positive this will be the month.

I am armed with baby dust and virgin mojitos for us all grin

Bajas Sat 16-Mar-13 17:52:21

wardy I'm doing sperm meets egg which says as soon as you get a positive dtd that day, the following day and the third day then have a day off and do it one last time on the fifth day! Hope that helps.

Zeuxippe Sun 17-Mar-13 17:12:50

I mean don't think time of day matters too much. I think the day after is the most crucial?

Wardy17 Sun 17-Mar-13 17:57:03

Thanks zeuxippe that's really helpful will give that a go

Just saw your thread title and wanted to wish you all luck because 14 years ago my DD was born on April 1st after nearly a year of TTC (plus 9 months obvs) - that year seemed like forever ! April 1st only April Fools day because people tried to move the new year to January, whereas some of us know it really starts in April with the springtime as it always did thanks
Shouldn't really be here as with DS(11) too we have our hands full - just popping by to wish you the all the luck of the season smile

Ganetgob Mon 18-Mar-13 19:51:42

Evening all!

I have been trying to keep away until closer to my bfp date (to stop myself obsessing!) but I've got a quick question you lovely ladies might be able to help me with.

I have been taking folic acid and vitamin D for a couple of months now. The folic acid is 400 micrograms and the vitamin d is 25 micrograms. In the last couple of weeks I have also started taking the seven seas 'trying for a baby' vitamins which contain 400 micrograms of folic acid and 5 micrograms of vitamin d.

I didn't think anything of taking them all at first but now I'm not so sure. Should I stop taking the separate tablets? Is 800micrograms of folic acid too much? Is 5 micrograms of vitamin d enough?

Any advice would be warmly welcomed!
grin

lisbapalea Mon 18-Mar-13 20:53:47

Hi Ganetgob - afraid I don't have the answer but have been puzzling over this kind of stuff myself!

I am taking Seven Seas B6 + Folic Acid - was taking this pre-TTC as heard B6 was good for PMT (was trying to curb my moodiness/tearfulness to try and make things a bit easier for DH - and me - in the week leading up to AF!). Since TTC I have seen people mention B6 being a good thing so am keeping up with it although not sure what the B6 is for! But the folic acid has got to be a good thing so I will keep up until anyone tells me not to!

Am also taking EPO every day, also because of PMT, but wondered if it's good to take it when TTC and if so should I only take it on selected days - have seen people on these threads saying they only take it for the first few days of their cycle?

So I am in an equal muddle! Hopefully someone will come along and help us out!

Bajas Mon 18-Mar-13 21:07:24

I'm no expert but I think I read somewhere that you shouldn't go above 400 micrograms daily of folic acid. So far as I know the only vitamin supplement to avoid is A but no doubt someone more knowledgeable will be on soon to let you know for sure.

Blondie276 Mon 18-Mar-13 21:13:13

Hi all!
I read that you should only take epo from day 1 to ovulation day as it isn't good for pregnancy hense only first part of cycle if that helps?

Ganetgob Mon 18-Mar-13 21:30:00

Hmmm....

Thanks for replying! Perhaps I should ask further afield than our bus to be sure?

I'll be back with a definite answer hopefully!

MotherOfCleo Mon 18-Mar-13 22:02:15

ganet I dont think you can have too much vit d3 but not sure about the folic acid?

LondonSuperTrooper Mon 18-Mar-13 22:44:01

I agree with Blondie about taking EPO from CD1 till ovulation a.

I don't know the implications of taking too much folic acid but I doubt it's harmful. A friend was having IVF and she was prescribed 2000mg of folic acid a day!!

LondonSuperTrooper Mon 18-Mar-13 22:44:30

flowersfortea Tue 19-Mar-13 10:35:14

Hi everyone,
can I jump on too please? Some familiar faces from previous buses - I've been keeping my head down for the last cycle or so in order to try and reinforce the 'JS' approach but am caving in again today!

The folic acid question - 400 micrograms is recommended for most women but some have to take 5milligrams (much more!!) for certain health conditions so taking 800 micrograms will not cause any harm. Personally I'd veer towards the higher dose of VitD but that's because working long hours I don't get much sunlight on a regular basis - again at those kind of numbers I don't think you can overdose! Reminds me to go take my own!

TTC number 1, cycle 4 or 5 I think - leads me on to a question of my own - last few cycles have been about 39 days long, last weekend on cd26 started very light spotting which has continued thus far, doubt it's implantation bleed because the timing of DTD doesn't quite add up, has anyone had similar experiences of this and any opinions on whether it's a random light period or something mid cycle?!

Hi flowers. I can't answer your post as I have no experience of mid-cycle bleeding. Hopefully one of the other ladies will be along shortly and answer your query.

CD5 for me and I think that I will try and keep away from this thread/board as I get incredibly stressed with this whole TTC process. Doesn't help that my sis fell pregnant on her first cycle.

MotherOfCleo Tue 19-Mar-13 12:26:22

flowers I had real issues with mid cycle spotting, mine was every month tho not just a one off. I took vit b6 and progesterone cream to stop mine.

marie456 Tue 19-Mar-13 14:49:42

Yesterday I had some happy news that my friend was 12 weeks pregnant and awaiting her scan next week (got pregnant for #1 cycle 1!) but then today she had some bleeding so was given an early scan and sadly the little one had died. It's so awful. She is having erpc tomorrow. sad

Re. folic acid I've read that if someone consistently takes more than the rda for a long time then there are certain side effects. Psychotic episodes was one of them! confused

I've not had mid-cycle spotting either so can't comment. Def could not be implantation bleeding???

I should be ovulating today or tomorrow (only have 11 day luteal phase) but no sign of +opk yet. This is my first cycle of doing temps and annoyingly I feel like I am getting the flu. This morning my temp was 37.9! Yesterday when I felt well it was 36.2! (I only have one with one decimal place- does that matter?) So it looks like I'll have to scrap the temping this month after the anomalies around when I should be ovulating and try it next month. Though of course I am hoping next month it will not be necessary!

We have both been taking pregnacare conception vits since last AF and started using preseed lube for DTD this week blush

Wardy17 Tue 19-Mar-13 15:40:28

Got positive OPK Sunday and Monday. This morning was negative. Does that mean I've ovulated already or about to? Also if I'm just about to and my AF is due 31st March that means I have a short lp doesn't it?

Mythreeknights Tue 19-Mar-13 15:55:48

Hi everyone...can I get on the April bus? Was convinced I was upduffed this month to the point that I actually mis-read a pee stick and it wasn't until my DH pointed out that both boxes needed a line, realised I was not pregnant...then AF arrived with a vengeance today, boiatch.
So...feeling slightly stupid and cautious, I am hopping aboard the April bus brandishing brie, coffee, shellfish and red wine.
Can someone tell me what OPK is and also is there any way of understanding when you are ovulating other than using a kit?

Ttcnumero3 Tue 19-Mar-13 18:26:11

marie456, really sorry to hear about your friend...

marie456 Tue 19-Mar-13 18:29:34

Welcome threeknights. I looooove brie! Do you want to add your stats to the list?
OPK is ovulation predictor kit. You pee on a little stick and it tests the luteinising hormone in your pee. I bought 20 off Ebay for abour £2. wardy from the extensive obsessive reading i've done I think the LH surges 12-36 hours before you actually ovulate. Best time to do the shagging is day before you get the positive, the day of the positive and couple of days after??? So if you are expecting AF 31st March that gives you a usual luteal phase of 13-14 days which is the best you can hope for. Mine is 11days which I think isn't great as the uterus lining can start to break down for AF before the little egg even gets there sad
threeknights the OPK tells you that LH is surging which happens before you ovulate but you can also take your basal temperature (temp first thing in the morning before you get out of bed). Temp rises a day or so after you have ovulated (so by then if you haven't been doing the business you have probably missed your chance). Do you get ovulation pains? I know I am ovulating as can feel it and usually pee on a stick just to double check.

marie456 Tue 19-Mar-13 18:30:16

thanks numero3. Gutted for her sad

ELA88 Tue 19-Mar-13 20:03:23

Oh no marie456 that's so sad :-( xxx

padster75 Wed 20-Mar-13 07:06:16

marie love to you & your friend, such horrible news.

Hi to all new passengers waves

Me, well this month is complete and utter pants, couldn't organise a p*ss up in a brewery nevermind the tricky goings on trying to get swimmers to meet egg. Think I'm out before we've even started!! Had to start taking my Fexofenadine as hayfever is kicking in with a vengeance (tree pollen sucks big time) so have absolutely no CM to spot. To try and counter that I've started EPO, but still nothing. Temps are all over the place, that's when I can be arsed remembering to take the damn thing. DH couldn't get his ......... well lets just say he isn't getting jiggy with it. Meh, just a big fat MEH!!

Wardy17 Wed 20-Mar-13 09:39:42

Thanks marie sorry to hear about your friend x

marie456 Wed 20-Mar-13 17:05:31

padster that's rubbish! Have you tried any of the sperm friendly lubes? They mimic ewcm and you could use it on DH to try and help him get jiggy?! I know my DH likes it! blush

marie456 Wed 20-Mar-13 17:06:28

Or do you mean you're getting nothing on an opk?

Bajas Wed 20-Mar-13 19:55:28

Hurrah. Have just spotted ewcm for first time in 7 cycles. Does this mean I'm definitely ovulating? Does it mean I'll ovulate today or have already or will in next couple of days? Sorry for the plethora of questions! Am v excited as this is the first indication I've had that we might be in with a chance! Cd10 so I now think I should be hoping for bfp on/ around 3rd April. Does that make sense?

Wardy17 Wed 20-Mar-13 20:17:15

Hey, I got positive OPKs on Sunday and Monday and we've done the deed Friday, sat, sun, mon and tue! Do you think I need to continue doing the dtd or can I have a night off? smile

Bajas Wed 20-Mar-13 20:18:38

I'd say That's a good run. You might need a night off...

weechops Wed 20-Mar-13 20:24:05

AW Padster sad drink grapefruit juice too to try and boost ewcm (and feel as though you're in control of something!)

Bajas ewcm is usually a sign youre in your fertile period, so probably due to ov soon. Get DTD! smile

Wardy good going! I think youre fine to have the night off smile DTD tomorrow and then keep fx.

I'm cd13 and dh is away for 2 weeks on Friday so will DTD tonight tomorrow and hopefully squeeze one in Fri before he goes.

Wardy17 Wed 20-Mar-13 20:56:37

bajas definitely feel like I need a night off. I've never had ewcm either!!!

Thanks weechops

Do you think if I got pos OPKs on Sunday and Monday that I've prob ov'd already?

weechops Wed 20-Mar-13 22:34:37

A pos opk means you are about to ov as it detects the surge that releases the egg. Meant to be 12-36 hours after seeing the positive so you've prob ov by now. But no harm in dtd again if you want to smile

Wardy17 Thu 21-Mar-13 07:53:09

Dtd in the end but definitely having a night off tonight smile think I'm definitely in the 2ww now FX!!!

lisbapalea Thu 21-Mar-13 12:01:04

AF just arrived for me, as I knew she would given there was no DTD last month!! My cycle seems to be getting shorter - was 22days this time. This scares me that I am not actually in a cycle long enough to get pg. Before DD my cycles were every 25days, and I know I managed to conceive with her, but I am worried that the decreasing length is going to make it harder with #2. Hmmm. Must try not to worry as I sent myself doolally in cycle1! Need to gear myself up for lots of shagging from Monday onwards (means starting while still have AF - not my favourite idea, but guess I need to keep an open mind in the name of TTC!). Positive Mental Attitude and all that jazz for this month!

I haven't been kicked off the march bus YET...... just looking in the window of the April bus and waving to the ladies I know!!!

AF is due in the next few days and I'm not feeling hopeful so please save a nice seat for me in case I need to hop on soon....

Good luck everyone!

Yay weechops ! Get dancing!
I had positive opk tues and weds. DTD Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues, Weds and will do it tonight as well. Is everyday bad for sperm quality? Any views on every other day instead? ...Have both been taking our conception vits from cycle day 1 and using the preseed all this week. Feeling hopeful for this month aswell as will hopefully know by my birthday (5th April) if im upduffed, so either amazing or totally sh*t present. If bfp that will mean a 2013 baby still (2014 sounds soooo far away) and the 3 month scan should fall very close to the first anniversary of my lovely Grandads passing, which would make a sad time a much happier one! Not that I've been thinking about all this too much! I realise I now sound like a massive freak! blush Aaaagggghhh! Someone lock me up!!!

Bajas Thu 21-Mar-13 20:05:48

Well I'm getting comfy in my seat! Only I thing I have an ishoo with about getting a BFP in April is that if we do then the peanut will have a birthday very close to DD2 & means another Xmas baby. DD2 was born 22nd Dec 2011 although we wasn't discharged from hospital until Xmas day, the post-natal and Neo-natal wards were lovely and Christmassy tho smile

Hi ladies,
Thanks marie & weechops for your kind words, I was really having a 'woe is me day'. Don't think I have OV yet, have had some cm and DH has finally pulled his dick finger out and remembered what to do.
<<waves>> at all new passengers, all are welcomed abroad, I really hope this is the last bus ride for us.
Hope you all have a good day & enjoy the weekend, we have another busy one so may just be a lurker for a few days.

chocoloulou33 Fri 22-Mar-13 07:07:35

Just stepped off the March bus. Have added myself to the bottom of the list. Now on cycle 18 and starting to get a bit despondent. My plans for a small gap between children have been blown out of the water. Now starting to think I won't be able to have another child. sad

Hi all and welcome new people. Snowed in this weekend and still blowing a blizzard outside. Thought it would be perfect for a weekend of dtd but dh still managed to get to work (a and e nurse so felt he had to be there- even though it took him hours). Just hope he makes it home tonight!

Bikey86 Sat 23-Mar-13 17:44:44

Hello Everyone, I'm new to MN and have been learning a lot from your thread. I'm 26 as is DH and we have decided to ttc# 1. I came off the pill in Feb and I wanted to wait until the bleed and 1st AF arrived before we started trying. AF here now so will soon be TTC, can you add me to the list please. Bikey86 TTC # 1 cycle #1 Bfp due 11th April?? x

ELA88 Sat 23-Mar-13 18:24:18

Ladies! I have cramps low down, like period pain, I'm apparently on cd18 but could be more or less than that. Do you reckon it's ovulation? It's quite uncomfortable but surely way to early for AF?! Xxx

Bajas Sat 23-Mar-13 18:32:33

Could be ovulation all right ELA. Are your cycles regular? My last was only 17 days before Af showed her ugly face again (and previous cycles had all been 30 plus since I came off pill)

ELA88 Sun 24-Mar-13 08:34:32

So far I've had a 28day cycle then 31 days, so could possibly be ov if I'm having a 32 day cycle. It was literally just for an hour but quite painful! When I was on the pill I wouldn't have ovulated would I? So I wouldn't have got that pain? Lol sorry if that's a stupid question! Xxx

ela no you don't ovulate if on the pill. I finished the pill in October after 14 years. First cycle was just 23 days, then 36 days, then 31, then 27 and 27 again, so hoping things have become regular again now. You might have varying cycles for a while?? I have been getting ov pains since finishing pill but this month had nothing. However I woke up with a temp of 38, sore throat and aching joints. I googled away and apprarently ov can cause flu like symptoms for a few women. Hope this won't happen every month!

Anyone know much about luteal phase defects??I only have 11 days luteal phase. Some websites say that anything less than 12 is a problem, some sites say less than 10. I'm confused confused and wondering if I should be worried.

ELA88 Sun 24-Mar-13 14:34:34

marie I felt like that yesterday, I barely slept Friday night as I was so hot, sore throat really aching legs, I thought I was getting sick so maybe that was ov! Xxx

Wardy17 Sun 24-Mar-13 15:30:27

Over the last few days I have had an increased amount of cm and its very thin and watery and creamy in colour (sorry tmi) anyone know what that means?
Some websites say watery cm is fertile cm but I had my positive OPKs on Sunday and Monday last week? I couldn't be ovulating now could I?

Penny31 Sun 24-Mar-13 17:35:22

Wardy I had watery CM 4 days before I ovulated so I don't think it's ovulation because then I had my usual ov cm....tmi i was using quite a lot of conceive plus the night before so I think it may have been that! Do you use it?

Penny31 Sun 24-Mar-13 17:38:06

Please can I have a ticket on this bus? Just had to get off the march one today due to late AF coming on with all her might.

Stocked up on opk's and ready for action!

Ooh - good to know someone else is working to same dates Malteaser!

I am pooped already today (had a crap night's sleep last night) so am hoping I can muster some energy to DTD tonight!! According to an ov calculator I found via google, Thursday should be my most fertile day, but DH is out then, so we need to get busy before then to make sure there are some swimmers still knocking around when meximum fertile time arrives!!

QueenofClean Mon 25-Mar-13 10:23:34

Well AF sodded off overnight so will be DTD no matter how shattered I am grin

Malteaser sorry your joining me from March bus sad

chocoloulou33 Mon 25-Mar-13 10:54:19

Morning all. Just chilling out after a bit of zumba, its nearly killed me. CD23 here, am in the 1ww wooo finally. Am sooo hoping this is my month xx

Wardy17 Mon 25-Mar-13 11:39:37

Cd26 for me choc, also in the 1ww when are you going to POAS? I want to now!!!!

ELA88 Mon 25-Mar-13 12:27:31

Welcome gilly we're becoming bus buddies! Hopefully (in the nicest way possible!!) we won't be on the may bus! Xxx

chocoloulou33 Mon 25-Mar-13 12:58:17

Hey wardy. I might poas on sat. That's 2 days b4 I'm due. When u gonna test? Think we the first ones due r bfp on this bus. No pressure then lol x

gillywillywoo Mon 25-Mar-13 13:30:29

Can I just say, the March bus now has 12 BFPs and March isn't even over yet!!!!!!!

Lets beat them and have more than that by the end of April! grinsmile x

Spring is in the air thanks

(Even if it's still a bit chilly - keep warm hey !)

Wardy17 Mon 25-Mar-13 14:48:33

I know what you mean choc. Just had an email from cousin announcing she is pregnant with baby no2 really please but also very jealous is that bad? Feeling slightly deflated now sad. I don't want to POAS until AF is due so Sunday but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to wait until then.

Do you have any symptoms at all?

Springbells Mon 25-Mar-13 16:10:58

Yay - cant believe I'm pleased to see a negative opk! Dh away on work trip this week, come on ovaries, hold out til then! Bizarre business, Ttc......

Wardy and choc - here's hoping you get April bus off to flying start and scatter baby dust in your wake

chocoloulou33 Mon 25-Mar-13 16:14:45

Wardy I know what u mean. My cousin announced her pregnancy about a month ago. First baby, got pregnant first month! Like u said u wanna be happy but also its like aargghhhh. This is month 7 for me now so want it so badly. I have no symptoms at all. But months I do think I have some it always amounts to nothing so...
What about you? X

Wardy17 Mon 25-Mar-13 16:58:16

I think so but not sure if I'm imagining them but I have been having quite frequent vivid dreams which is not normal for me normally I don't remember my dreams, been going to the loo a bit more than usual and a bit more cm and today feel a bit icky. But it could well be all in my head!!

PistachioTruffle Mon 25-Mar-13 17:16:57

Cd 26 here, absolutely zero symptoms!
I've also realised that due to circumstances, unless I get a bfp in the next couple of months we're going to have to stop TTC for a year to 18 months sad

Penny31 Mon 25-Mar-13 18:55:58

Sorry gilly! Nice to see we will be testing at the same time smile only cd2 for me so have looooong way to go, my LP is short so reckon my fertile days won't be until around cd20 grrr.

Good luck those on 2ww! Here is to Xmas babies!

Zeuxippe Mon 25-Mar-13 20:19:31

Ooh wardy vivid dreams definitely a symptom! Something to do with progesterone levels I think - fx!!

dutchyoriginal Mon 25-Mar-13 21:05:37

Where do all you lovely ladies get those cheap OPKs? I spent 52 euro on the digital Clear blue one! shock

have been peeing on them since last Monday, but no :-) so far. This is strange, because my cycle seems to be quite short (26 days max).

QueenofClean Mon 25-Mar-13 21:06:10

I'm going to get off the bus as DH & I have decided to delay TTC for a few months as we don't want another Xmas baby and my eldest DD is a March baby so want to know wait to try for a summer baby.

Fx for everyone xx

dutchyoriginal Mon 25-Mar-13 21:06:19

:-) should be smile because that's what that OPK shows during your peak.

Ttcnumero3 Mon 25-Mar-13 21:06:43

I'm struggling to keep up with all the acronyms!!! Many have changed since i was pg or ttc previously! Think I am CD11 of a 28 day cycle. EWCM I think today (sorry if tmi!!). No idea about taking temperature or extra supplements etc.

Whilst I would be DELIGHTED to get pg this month I am also aware that would mean a due date very close to Christmas...and I wonder about the effects of that on current family...

Exciting that some people are days away from poas tick! Fingers crossed ladies...

chocoloulou33 Mon 25-Mar-13 21:34:31

Sounds good wardy, got fx for you. SoRry to see you go queen good luck in the future xx
pistachio why would u have to have a break if u don't mind me asking? X

MrsAVB Mon 25-Mar-13 21:49:48

Evening all!
Pistachio, I just noticed we have the exact same stats (except I am cd20 so I guess a shorter cycle...) - here's hoping we're both lucky this month; that must be a hard decision to stop ttc. Am in a similar position too as applying for new jobs at the moment. Which adds another element to being tempted to POAS (obviously not quite yet!) as an excuse not to fill in boring job apps.
Is anyone else imagining getting weird symptoms. For example today I have a pain in my armpit which I'm sure is totally unrelated to anything... Err... Don't chuck me off the bus for being weird please!
This is my first month on mumsnet, and my first month not "just sh***ing", although we have been trying since September I haven't paid any attention to my cycle etc. I think mumsnet is driving me a little crazy with all the effort some of you are putting in, I'm in awe! Any tips for a newbie most welcome.
Much love xxx

WanabeMum Mon 25-Mar-13 22:08:34

Hey ladies can I join please? I'm currently TTC #2 and have had the mirena removed so no idea where I am in my cycle! Although I have imagined felt some weird things lately, slight nausea end of last week, very tired, and today sore boobs. I'm sure this is all in my head but determined not to let it take over my life like it did last time! Any advice on distractions?! smile

Wardy17 Mon 25-Mar-13 22:21:38

Hopefully they are symptoms and not just in my imagination!!!

Good luck for the future queen xx

lucieloos Mon 25-Mar-13 22:49:59

Hi there, could someone add me to the list please smile

TTC#1, cycle 1, bfp due 7th April

PistachioTruffle Mon 25-Mar-13 22:54:50

Fingers crossed for your symptoms Wardy!

Choco it's a little complicated, but basically as I'm a student I could take maternity leave and return to my course. If it turned out I fell pregnant and the baby was due too near the end of the course, or after the end of the course then it would cause problems with taking maternity leave/getting a job.

MrsAVB well spotted! grin You're quite right, My cycles are a bit longer, about 37-40 days, and a little unpredictable hence the later cycle day. Fingers crossed for both of us! Are you waiting 'til the 7th to test?

MrsAVB Tue 26-Mar-13 08:58:57

Morning!
Pistachio, I am going to try to wait til the 7th, although I have a job application deadline on the 7th so it depends whether I've done the god awful personal statement before 5th/ 6th (as there's no point in me changing jobs if I'm pg). It's hard wanting to have a career as well as a baby!
Today I have stomach cramps but again this might be unrelated... (although stomach closer to potential baby than yesterday's armpit pain lol).

Wardy17 Tue 26-Mar-13 11:05:50

I'm embarrassed to say that I POAS this morning, of course BFN, AF due Sunday.

gillywillywoo Tue 26-Mar-13 11:14:02

Morning ladies! smile

Well there's no doubt about my presence on the April bus as AF is now here in full swing.. CD2 for me.

Looking forward to it disappearing to I can crack on with dtd and obsessing for another month haha grin

I've updated the list.. Also changed my stats as it showed I was on cycle 3 of trying but I'm only really on cycle 2. Wasn't really trying at all until lady month!

Here's to many April bfps and Christmas babies! wine

Morning ladies. Hope ur all well. Hello to the newbies <waves>
Oh I see pistachio u best get busy & get that BFP, sending u good vibes for an xmas baby smile
wardy I've already told u off on the march bus lol. I used to poas early all the time & got theu so many sticks haha. So try not to do it too much. I WILL maybe wait til sat!! X

Wardy17 Tue 26-Mar-13 11:37:23

I'll try choc, just for you! I don't want to be told off again lol xx

weechops Tue 26-Mar-13 12:22:32

I hate the 2ww! I get totally obsessed with symptoms even though I swear I won't every time. Gah! 4dpo and my phantom symptom of the day is sore boobs. I know, I know it's too early for anything smile

PistachioTruffle Tue 26-Mar-13 18:07:04

Thanks for the vibes choco, I need all that I can get!! A Christmas baby would be really lovely!

MRs, ooh that's a tough one! Good luck with your application, is it a job you really want? Fertility friend has changed it's mind and told me AF is due on the 5th, so I might be naughty and test on the 4th. I hate having long cycles, if I had a 28 day cycle (as I used to before taking the pill etc, grrrr) I could test tomorrow, unfortunately not though!

Wardy, step away from the pee sticks! grin

Wardy17 Tue 26-Mar-13 18:16:36

pistachio I will its just soooo hard!!! And because DH leaves for work before me in the mornings it's so easy to be sneaky!!!

marie456 Tue 26-Mar-13 18:59:16

Updated list again as realised my stats are wrong. I ovulated earlier this month than I was expecting so with my short luteal phase I'm due 31st March/1st April. Dont want to get back on the March bus at this late stage, so I'll stay here if that's ok?! Plus if it's a BFN then my next AF will still be due at end of April! Going to poas saturday morning I think!

wanabemum there is no way to distract yourself!!!

MrsAVB glad your arm pit pain has gone! grin

dutchy EBay great for cheap OPKs. About 20 for a few quid.

Reckon I'll poas around the 10th. Find the hope kills me if I try too early with crazy cycles so will try to hold out until then.

Had really vivid dream that I'd had a baby last night. Am hoping that's a sign!

ELA88 Tue 26-Mar-13 20:03:58

bajas I'm always having vivid baby dreams! The other night I had such a vivid pregnancy dream that when I woke up I was sure I'd poas in the night! I came home from work today to a Next baby catalogue so had a rant at the post! Another cruel reminder of no BFP!! Only 2 more days left at work though grin xx

WanabeMum Tue 26-Mar-13 20:33:38

Hi everyone! I have no idea when AF is due so not sure when to poas confused thanks to the lovely mirena coil I had no periods! Had it removed on 14th march so only just 2 weeks of dtd! Will have to wait until AF so I can time it next month.
Sounds like we have more symptom spotting going on, which is a lovely distraction for me (I know it's not really possible but I must try! )smile
I have very sore boobs today and some twinges so thinking my hormones are all over the place sad

Penny31 Tue 26-Mar-13 20:42:11

Dp wasn't keen on a Xmas/new year baby but I've convinced him it doesn't matter when we have a baby as long as we try to get one! He wants to take vitamins like me, he is into this as much as I am now! Yey smile only cd3 for me but still I'm excited to get going again lol

Penny31 Tue 26-Mar-13 20:42:51

Oooooh I wonder who will be our first BFP! Good luck everyone smile

gillywillywoo Tue 26-Mar-13 20:50:39

Haha penny it's nice when the men get into it too smile
My DH was saying today he wants to buy a new car... Then he said "actually I want a baby first... Car can wait"... I was so happy cos it was actually the first time he mentioned having and wanting a baby without me talking about it first!
He's on the multivitamins too smile

Cd2 for me and I'm excited too.. Let's see what this month brings! It's Easter after all.. New life! New beginnings! wink

WanabeMum Tue 26-Mar-13 20:56:00

Aw gilly that's so nice, really important for dh to be on board and supportive! Makes a huge difference to me when I have my mad moments blush

Lets hope Easter is a good time for all of us! smile good luck everyone.

Anyone give me an idea of when I should poas? I'm kind of hopeful but don't want to waste tests. Never get sore boobs, ever, so my imagination mind is getting the better of me!

chocoloulou33 Tue 26-Mar-13 21:21:12

Lol wardy I was meant to say 'I try not to do it as much' not telling u not too haha. Sorry hun. U test as often as u like hun how r we all this evening? I'm v happy as just had dd parents evening & she is doing so well I am so proud grin
We need to get the first bfp on that list. Looks so sad as a big fat zero! I'll be testing sat & am soooo scared. Don't wanna go onto cycle 8. Want it to be this month sooo bad x

Penny31 Tue 26-Mar-13 21:40:29

Wanabemum when is AF due?

Good luck choc!

Gilly what vits does DH take?

WanabeMum Tue 26-Mar-13 21:46:35

I have no idea penny sad haven't had a period for 6 months plus as I had the coil fitted. Coil removed 14th but we've had loads of dtd before and since so I'm not sure. In hindsight I should have waited for AF before TTC sad

marie456 Tue 26-Mar-13 21:47:10

When did.you ovulate wanabe?

Good news about the parents evening choc grin ! I'm going to poas Saturday aswell! Really want this month too, as don't want due date to go to 2014!.
Another friend announced she was pregnant yesterday and I've since been getting messages from other friends telling me the pressures on me now, I'm the only one! They don't mean anything by it and don't realise how insane I'm going trying to get pregnant but it is depressing literally the only one in my group of friends who doesn't either already have children or is currently pregnant! [Sad] Stressssss!

WanabeMum Tue 26-Mar-13 21:53:42

Aw Marie that's horrible! I'm sure it will happen for you soon. Thought it was never going to happen when ttc#1 but got bfp 10 months later smile beautiful dd so worth the wait!
I think I ovulated around 12/13th as I get some pain usually. Not really sure though. blush

Penny31 Tue 26-Mar-13 21:56:03

Wanabemum I have no experience with the coil I'm afraid. Do you get AF symptoms like sore boobs, bloating cramps? If you do an know roughly around what date then you could use that as a benchmark for testing.

Maybe give it 4 weeks from having coil removed and start testing then if AF hasn't arrived.

Get some cheap opk's and pg tests from amazon. You can get batches of 20 smile then start poas to see if you can detect who you ovulate.

Someone else who has had a coil will be able to help better.....

Penny31 Tue 26-Mar-13 21:57:28

If you ovulated around the 13th then you could perhaps test at the weekend....that's what I would do

WanabeMum Tue 26-Mar-13 21:59:39

Thanks penny. I get some twinges normally but never sore boobs. I'm thinking my hormones may just be returning to normal and maybe That accounts for the "symptoms"

Four weeks after removal is a good place to start though, so that would mean I could test on 15th April. Watch this space!

Penny31 Tue 26-Mar-13 22:00:31

Marie I understand your stress! A lot of my friends have completed their families and I haven't even started yet! There are 3 of us left with no kids and we are all now TTC. A bit tricky really because although I will be happy for their BFPs I will also be sad on the inside and vice versa. Who knew TTC would be this bloomin complicated!

Penny31 Tue 26-Mar-13 22:02:29

If you can hold out that long wanabe ;) I would definitely invest in cheap tests from amazon. Once I poas I couldn't stop! I found it addictive so know I had a stash of 20 was good! Have enough left for my obsession in April thankfully. grin

MrsAVB Tue 26-Mar-13 22:17:56

Evening all!
I was waiting for a train this morning and a couple were talking about when to start ttc. She was saying how important it had been to her to have friends living really close and of a close age when she was growing up and saying that she wanted to wait til a) she lived somewhere where she had close friends living near and b) those friends wanted to ttc too!
All very ideal I know, but it really struck me how having a baby isn't guaranteed - you can spend so much time planning the the "right" time, and doing all the stuff that you much more organised ladies than me do with vitamins, opks etc. life will go on and I'm going to try not to obsess!
but I might still POAS on the 5th Ssssh!
And just had an evening out with two single friends who seem to think that anyone married or ttc "just doesn't understand..." I could say the same for them - life doesn't get easy the minute you settle down!
Pistachio I'm not desperate for the job but its all part of the mix of needing a job closer to DHs so that we can move somewhere more affordable with more room for DC(s). Being a grown up is way too complicated sometimes!
Marie Thanks for your concern about my armpit pain haha! blush
Hope you're all well... And sorry for the rant!
X

PistachioTruffle Tue 26-Mar-13 22:43:37

MrsAVB That's very true, people always say that if you wait for exactly the right time to TTC it might never come, but it would be even more unlikely to arrive if on top of all the things that are regularly thought about (suitable house, savings, ideal point in career etc) everyone waited until their friends wanted to TTC, what if they never did? What if it took much longer than anticipated? I also think that being pregnant/having a baby is an opportunity for many women to meet new people in similar situations, through antenatal classes, baby groups etc.

I have internet cheapie tests in the drawer, I'm very tempted to POAS on the 5th

chocoloulou33 Tue 26-Mar-13 23:00:49

Ah marie that must be strange for u. It will so be worth the wait I promise you. Let's hope this is our lucky month! So we're both poas sat! Soooo exciting! Gah only tues 2moro, hurry up weekend x

padster75 Wed 27-Mar-13 07:27:57

Morning all,

Crazy month I am having here, barely time to fart never mind shag think. Have absolutely no idea where I am up to, other than on CD20!! Damn anti-histamines taken to combat the god awful early tree pollen has really screwed with CM, so you would think the BBT would play ball so I would have an idea, but no that's fucked all over the place too!! Only thing that's worked this month is DTD (once DH found his dick the time).

Gilly there must be something in the water, my DH is obssessing about buying a new car. Well new to us, some of our friends are emigrating and he is going to buy their car. He reckons it'll be good for (and I quote) 'all that shit that babies need' .................... well it's a start!

choc great to hear DD is doing so well at school smile
MRSAVB & Pistachio absolutely, when is the 'right time'. Becoming more and more of a strong believer that it will happen when it is meant to happen.

Busy couple of days ahead, then we are going and spending Easter weekend with the inlaws in their caravan in North Wales. Looking forward to the break (although I will be cooking or we'll starve). Hoping it takes my mind of symptoms spotting, although I have no faith in my cycle this month. DTD days 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 19 so hoping all bases are coveredgrin)

BoomBaby Wed 27-Mar-13 09:31:30

Good morning ladies

I was very naughty this morning and tested at 10dpo, should have been waiting until 1st April but the waiting game got the better of me. A bfn unfortunately and I've been symptom spotting like crazy but any high hopes that i had of being pregnant have reduced massively sad

Expecting af a lot more now.....

gillywillywoo Wed 27-Mar-13 11:15:45

Penny DH takes vitabiotics wellman conception tablets! Basically the male equivalent of the pregnacare ones I take smile

ELA88 Wed 27-Mar-13 12:59:55

Extreme nausea...a symptom? or due to the fact I just ate nearly a whole box of chocolate fingers! Hmm! Xx

Sammieh86 Wed 27-Mar-13 13:13:24

my bfp due fri/sat....bbs sore, low backache, mild cramping and white cm.....sign of af or bump? fingers crossed smile)) xx

deliasmithy Wed 27-Mar-13 14:15:11

Hello all,
Not been around for a while as busy with work, dtd and got new phone so lost this page!
Im cd23, just beginning to get the crazies again. No symptoms at all but I'll run with that after last months nausea sore boobs etc that just led to af.
Have felt very stressed about the fact this is last chance for 2013 baby. Silly really but sensible doesn't seem to feature right now!

MrsAVB Wed 27-Mar-13 14:34:15

Pistachio I have decided I will wait til the 7th to POAS.
because I have 2 things planned on the 6th where I will want to drink (not excessively obviously before mumsnet calls social services)
I feel like I'm the naughty kid on the bus...
Xxx

Wardy17 Wed 27-Mar-13 15:50:53

Is 8/9 dpo to early to test? AF due Sunday.

Don't really know why I'm asking just can't seem to stop thinking about weeing on sticks!!

barebranches Wed 27-Mar-13 18:14:28

hi fellow passengers
im 4 days past ovulation and today i had cervical mucas that was a browny sort of tinge... what does this mean?

Wardy17 Wed 27-Mar-13 18:23:07

Ok slightly confused, hoping someone can help me. So this cycle I'm used Clearblue OPKs and I got my smiley face on the 17th and 18th of march. Dtd loads before and after smiley face. Haven't really dtd now since my fertile week (apologise in advance for tmi). I got home from work today and went for a wee, as you do, and noticed when I wiped some cm so I checked it out and it was stretch but not clear and there was hardly any of it, it was tiny, could this be ewcm and could I be ovulating now? I really hope not as I haven't been doing the deed. I haven't had ewcm before, is it clear or white? Does it dry white in your pants? Do you normally get lots? Sorry for all the gross questions.

Bajas Wed 27-Mar-13 19:01:57

Was wondering about white cm myself wardy as have it today. Not that I'd be fit to dtd tonight anyway- dh on late shift and I woke up dosed with the cold so am feeling very sorry for myself sad

Bajas Wed 27-Mar-13 19:04:16

Sorry just noticed it was sammie who had white cm. it's amazing the things you start to become hyper aware of when ttc that you never really noticed before!

PistachioTruffle Wed 27-Mar-13 19:22:29

I've just consulted the oracle (taking charge) and creamy white cm (which I also have haha) can either be cyclical non fertile cm, or pregnancy associated (!) Stretchy clear or streaked cm is fertile mucus and indicates you may be in the fertile period.

Mrs, thats good, at least you will have a reason to wait and have something to distract you!

Wardy17 Wed 27-Mar-13 19:36:29

The cm I had was definitely not clear!! FX!!!

Bajas Wed 27-Mar-13 19:51:18

Ooh pistachio could be a good sign then. Between that, the vivid pregnancy and the rotten cold (lowered immunity) I'm trying not to convince myself I'm pregnant as it'd be a long 2ww for me (or 3 week or 4 week with my cycles!)

Bajas Wed 27-Mar-13 19:51:59

Vivid pregnancy dream, not vivid pregnancy!

barebranches Wed 27-Mar-13 20:04:05

what about browny tinged cm?

CandlestickOlder Wed 27-Mar-13 20:23:29

Good luck Wardy x

(It's me again, the name changer wink )

Wardy17 Wed 27-Mar-13 20:26:54

candle you'll have to remind me I have a memory like a siv!!!

CandlestickOlder Wed 27-Mar-13 20:41:54

Ooh I won't! Love the anonymity of MN and name changing makes me feel much better about it all grin

I am fx for you and have a positive vibe about this month for you!

Update from me: am on cd 8. Last month my temp tracking said I ovulated on cd18 but I only tracked half the month. So going to DTD every three days - just not realistic to do it more often than that for me and DP. So days 6 9 12 15 18 and if I do then ov maybe squeeze in 19!

Springbells Wed 27-Mar-13 20:43:30

Bare - sounds like spotting. Could be implantation or break through bleeding. Do you ever get break through bleeding/spotting before af?

barebranches Wed 27-Mar-13 20:48:17

have had breakthrough once before but it was red not brown.... gaaaggggghhh hate the waiting week. roll on 6th april for my bfp!!!

Zeuxippe Wed 27-Mar-13 20:53:26

Ooh exciting to hear about all the potential symptoms! I'm at most 6 dpo today but had some slight twinges 'down there' and have convinced myself it's implantation!

Springbells Wed 27-Mar-13 21:21:26

Ladies - quick (--and probably daft--) question, is there such a thing as too often dtd? Was planning on every day over ovulation, but just checking this doesn't affect quality as far as anyone knows? Thanks grin

CandlestickOlder Wed 27-Mar-13 21:24:05

There is something on that in taking charge Spring. Recommends on how much to DTD if your partners sperm isn't perfect. From what I have read, every other day is ok and sperm does need time to recharge

CandlestickOlder Wed 27-Mar-13 21:24:42

And you only have a short window after ov. Better the sperm is waiting there! smile

Wardy17 Wed 27-Mar-13 22:02:23

Thanks Candle, FX for you too xx

Springbells Wed 27-Mar-13 22:03:33

Candle - thanks, that's really good to know! Roll on a busy Easter weekend! wink

Can I join too? TTC#1, cycle 1. Don't think there's much chance this month, only DTD once (ovulated 23rd or 24th, I think), but at least we got started!

chocoloulou33 Wed 27-Mar-13 23:19:15

Hello all, just had a little catch up. pads you did make me 'lol' xx
Mad day here. Got another one 2moro. 27 kids at my holiday club! Bring on all the fun easter activities smile hopefully there is the threads first BFP waiting round the corner. Exciting :D

padster75 Thu 28-Mar-13 07:29:40

Ok Ladies I need some brain help.

CD 21, DTD on 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 & 19, FF says I ov CD18 ....... do you guys reckon I've got it covered? I have no idea as CM is non existent with the anti-histamines I am currently having to take.

Away for the long Easter weekend, so catch up with you all next week sometime. Have a peaceful and happy Easter. Stay safe & be naughty wink

CandlestickOlder Thu 28-Mar-13 07:45:19

Fx padster! You may well have it covered smile

Speaking of fertility friend, my temps are all over the place. Came crashing down today to 35.97. Looked so low I popped it straight back in my mouth - 36.69. confusedconfused Is there any point?!

PistachioTruffle Thu 28-Mar-13 09:24:06

I've given up temping for this month CandlestickOlder, I missed a few and the others were all over the place, might try again next month.

lisbapalea Thu 28-Mar-13 09:50:02

I think I may have failed already for April - I am on CD8 today and have so far failed to DTD. My cycles are short at c.21-25 days, so assuming I have a luteal phase of 14days I would need to have started DTD on Monday, which was CD5 (yep, while AF was still with me!).

Have had an absolute week from hell with work with horrendous early starts and late finishes, which has meant I have been totally knackered. Last night my knackeredness made me moody so DH and I argued instead of DTD! Grrrr!!

I need to be sweetness and light tonight and hope that actually my luteal phase is shorter than 14 days so I might still be in with a chance for this month.

On the plus side, I haven't noticed any OV symptoms, no CM, nothing, so am hoping I am still in with a chance.

weechops Thu 28-Mar-13 12:58:15

Padster sounds like you have it pretty well covered!

Lisa you're definitely still in with as chance. Fingers crossed smile

CandlestickOlder Thu 28-Mar-13 13:21:33

Don't give up Lisa you might ovulate on cd 15/16 or later!

Wardy17 Thu 28-Mar-13 13:27:23

I am feeling really down today I have convinced myself I am not pg this month, I have no symptoms and had some stretchy cm yesterday (hardly any) but if that was fertile cm then I've totally missed the boat. I calculate myself to me 9/10 dpo I have zero symptoms, I got positive OPK on 17th and 18th but google says that doesn't mean I've ovulated. So confused and miserable.

2014 just seems so long away

Sorry for my moaning!!!!

gillywillywoo Thu 28-Mar-13 14:39:22

Sorry to hear you're feeling down wardy sad
<huuuuugggss>
It's not over til AF arrives so you just never know... And if AF does come then just get through it and focus on dtd lots for another month!
I'm only on my second month of trying now and I already feel impatient... It will happen eventually and we are all in it together! smile
Xx

Wardy17 Thu 28-Mar-13 14:56:23

Thanks gilly, this is my first normal cycle since mmc in Nov and just really thought when it all happened in nov that I would be pg again by now which is silly really. Just took periods so long to get back to normal. Just fed up really. Had loads of sex during fertile week but none since, stupid mistake.

Sorry, I hope I'm not bringing you all down x

deliasmithy Thu 28-Mar-13 15:40:09

Every time I feel slightly different from the usual AF symptoms I inflate the importance of it. And then experience crushing disappointment.
Despite this, I havent stopped and am currently convinced tummy ache is the new bfp predictor.

MrsAVB Thu 28-Mar-13 17:00:07

Afternoon all! 4 day weekend whoop whoop!
Wardy sending hugs... I miscarried in June after conceiving first cycle, we've been trying again since September and do worry a lot about it taking a while. But I'm also of the "what will be, will be" school of thought and know that fundamentally I will be ok life will go on and be full of both ups and downs whatever the stork does or doesn't bring.
Besides... It's Easter egg time and possibly being pg means we are all allowed to eat lots of eggs and hot cross buns on the bus.
Xxxx

Zeuxippe Thu 28-Mar-13 17:06:36

Just to say happy bank holiday to one and all! And roll on April with lots of lovely BFPs xx

Wardy17 Thu 28-Mar-13 17:22:32

Thanks MrsA I wish I had the same attitude as you, I'm a bit more obsessive. Most of the time I'm fine it's just the 2ww makes me crazy!!!

WanabeMum Thu 28-Mar-13 17:46:06

Hey everyone, been busy so just catching up!
Sorry to hear you're feeling blue wardy sad I got completely obsessed the first time around and I'm sure this hindered rather than helped the process, but I too am the obsessive type so I feel your pain! Promised myself I wouldn't obsess this time but here I am symptom spotting and dragging myself away from the pregnancy tests! blush
It will happen for you, your body has already shown you that you can conceive and my friend went on to have a healthy baby girl shortly after an mc. Chin up honey smile
Nice to see lots of other symptom spotters here too. Liking the idea of hot cross buns and Easter eggs MrsAVB!!!

PistachioTruffle Thu 28-Mar-13 18:49:58

wine and hugs for those feeling blue, I love the excuse to scoff easter goodies Mrs!

How early do we think the nesting instinct could kick in? I've been cleaning the house like a woman possessed today! Went in to tidy the baking cupboard as DH has been nagging for ages and I've been putting it off, and while in there had the sudden urge to scrub the place, including places I normally forget exist, such as underneath the wall mounted cabinets grin I've also done two loads of washing, the bathroom, cleaned the carpet in our room, am in the midst of cleaning the living room and looking forward to tackling the spare room and getting rid of some junk! The poor cat had better not sit still for too long or it will be polished and put away haha!
(I am joking of course, I don't really think its a symptom!)

marie456 Thu 28-Mar-13 19:08:23

pistachio you have a baking cupboard?! That sounds amazing!

wardy I'm so with you on the feeling down. At the minute it feels like everyone is pg but me!! I poas as soon as I got home today even though I knew it would be bfn! I'm only 8/9 dpo, though AF due sunday/monday due to short luteal phase. I also like you have not dtd since fertile week (or at least what I think is fertile week). Think ovulated on day 16 and dtd days 12,13,14,15,16 and 17. sad

Have no symptoms either other than feeling a bit bloated but after a visit to the loo (tmi!!!!!) that's now gone!

PistachioTruffle Thu 28-Mar-13 19:20:16

Marie, it isn't as fancy as it sounds, I promise! It's just the cupboard where I keep the baking supplies, so it's normally full of mostly empty bags of flour and stray cupcake cases!
DH has just phoned to say we're going out for dinner and drinks with some friends, so my cleaning fest will have to wait til tomorrow shock. It's just as well really, cleaning the outsides of windows is probably an activity best performed in daylight wink
Catch up with you tomorrow ladies!

lisbapalea Thu 28-Mar-13 20:13:50

CM question...!

Having thought I might have missed the boat I've just discovered I have EWCM after all! Now does that mean I currently am ovulating and therefore need swimmers in there asap, or does it mean I am about to ovulate and have a few days to DTD before egg is released?

Pixie001 Thu 28-Mar-13 20:19:02

Crappy crap crap.
Hello, me again. joining the next bus please if that ok. sad
Anyone got any wine?

gillywillywoo Thu 28-Mar-13 20:21:07

Evening all! Pistachio I definitely need a baking cupboard! I just made two batches of cookies and a banana bread. Can I count cake craving as a symptom? <passes round the cookies>
Xxx

TobyLerone Thu 28-Mar-13 21:58:23

Oooooh, I have a baking cupboard. I'll fit right in here!

Pixie001 Thu 28-Mar-13 22:20:21

Thanks choc, i will be..just in bed having little cry and feeling sorry for myself first. Don't want dh to know how disappointed I am, he feels the pressure to perform as it is. ttc sucks.

deliasmithy Thu 28-Mar-13 23:54:19

I have some cheese and some port for everyone.

I think I'm getting af signs, not even April yet!

TobyLerone TTC#3, cycle 5, BFP due 25th April

We've decided to do this properly now, rather than just using an app and guesswork, as time is not on our side (we've given it a year). Yesterday I ordered some OPKs and bought Sainsbury's out of vitamins.

ELA88 Fri 29-Mar-13 07:31:28

Ohh sorry to hear bfn wardy but AF hasn't arrived so you're still in with a chance. I've heard lots of stories on here of ladies that have had AF days late and still been bfn then suddenly a BFP. Fx still for you xxx

Sunshine2013Hopefully Fri 29-Mar-13 18:41:51

Can I be the first bfp please??
Ovulated early, af isn't due until Monday but I did a test this morning and it was positive! I'm just nervous now, hope it all works out this time! Fx

Hopefully I'll hav opened the flood gates and April will b filled with bfps for all! smile

Sorry choc. It's not over for you yet though so fx. Are you 12dpo today? It may just be too early. Test again tomorrow?

I didn't poas this morning as my temp had dropped. I'm sure af will be here by tomorrow. Back in bed now feeling sorry for myself but might test when I get up.

marie456 Sat 30-Mar-13 07:43:53

Congratulations sunshine! grin

ttcnumero3 Sat 30-Mar-13 09:20:56

Congratulations sunshine!!! How exciting! Hoping you are the first of many !!grin Choco.... It's not final yet ... Keeping fingers crossed for you...

I'm super impatient . Thought had ewcm earlier in week but that was just for one day and then nothing hmm. Confused. Expected to ovulate on thursdayish...

Can i join please?
Busy munching Easter eggs in the hope of a bfp around 22/4/13 wink
After having a mc in February sad, after my 1st im embarking upon the bunnymaking bandwagon in hope of baby no 5!
Sending babydust out to everyone awaiting their bfp and congrats to all those that have already obtained their mini egg smile

1st cycle not im, stupid keypad

PistachioTruffle Sat 30-Mar-13 10:02:57

choc, I'm sorry about your bfn sad

I poas this morning. Ff had originally given today as test day, then Changed it to something indecipherable. Of course it was bfn. I keep telling myself it could be too early, but really I know I'm not pregnant.

Penny31 Sat 30-Mar-13 10:10:06

Hey our first BFP! Congrats sunshine smile

Sorry you are having a hard time chocsad

Well AF has gone and I don't want her back for the rest of 2013! Armed with opk's I will be DTD every 2-3 days and then everyday during ov time smile I am yet to really figure out exactly when ov time is but I have guessed it is around cd22 and with a 34 day cycle that means I may have a short LP grrrr. We will see! I'm only in cd7 so I have a looooong way to go. Pleased to have you guys around to help me get through it grin

WanabeMum Sat 30-Mar-13 11:30:08

Wow lots has happened since I was on here last. Congratulations to sunshine on your BFP! grin
Don't give up the faith yet choc it could still happen. Lets see what April brings for us all xx

barebranches Sat 30-Mar-13 22:26:47

congrats to the bfp!!
im in my second week of waiting now... got to try and resist daily testing....!! grin

chocoloulou33 Sat 30-Mar-13 22:47:52

Thanks ladies. Af due 2moro & am cramping so will just have to wait til the poxy thing arrives. Know what u mean pistachio I know I'm not pregnant too. Just keep getting my hopes up but as every month goes past am starting to worry a bit more. Am 33 now so makes me stress x

PistachioTruffle Sun 31-Mar-13 10:03:50

flowers Choco I had a bit of a meltdown on dh yesterday - tears, snot the works, because I was sure I'm not pregnant. The man is a saint, I tell you!

Wardy17 Sun 31-Mar-13 14:32:07

AF due today - no sign so far! Tested with fmu, Bfn! I'm at the very most 14 dpo today but most prob 12-13dpo do you think it's still poss that there's not enough hcg?

Zeuxippe Sun 31-Mar-13 14:53:33

Hi wardy definitely possible. Which tests are you using? I would wait until at least 15 dpo if you can.

Wardy17 Sun 31-Mar-13 15:22:41

Hi zeuxippe I'm using Internet cheapies but they are sensitive ones so probably not been my month!

deliasmithy Sun 31-Mar-13 15:25:07

Sorry choc.
This is why I don't poas that often, bad enough when af comes.
Got the old sore boobs, but then other symptoms are different this month. I think my symptoms are different every month!

Hi girls, haven't posted this cycle. Watching though (and watching the very successful march bus). Positive thinking the luck will carry on into April. Very excited today as finally got a positive opk. Had thought its never happen as its three days after my app predicted. 11 days is enough time surely to make a little bean?? I'm only on cycle 2 but have had enough of ttc already

ELA88 Sun 31-Mar-13 17:28:49

delia I've been avoiding mn a bit too, makes me a bit obsessive over it all! I think we're on the same cycle day but I don't think I'm pregnant this month :-( am on holiday in Scotland but feeling so crappy about it all! Xxx

weechops Sun 31-Mar-13 18:35:34

Someone make me step away from the clearblue! I'm only 9dpo today and I feel like I want to poas every time i go to the loo. I think I may cave tomorrow morning. Each of my pregnancies, I've always had a faint line by 10dpo so I'm hoping so hard for one tomorrow. I've had sore boobs on and off for about 3 days now and today I had stabby pains on my lower left side. Am I going nuts now? Ttc does actually drive you insane!

Bikey86 Sun 31-Mar-13 20:55:04

Its madness how TTC takes over. I'm in my fertile period according to my app and this my first cycle and already I'm thinking about when I will be testing!! Obsessed already..I really wanted to be relaxed about it too!!

Penny31 Sun 31-Mar-13 21:16:50

Was already to crack DTD and I've come down with a cold grrrr. Not sexy angry at least I think I still have plenty of time. It's cd8 for me today. When should I start using my opk?

bikey I was just like you last month ( my 1st cycle) and now cycle 2 fertile time too and I think I'm tiny bit better as at least I know things like my body lies (so many symptoms ) and ttc is indeed exhausting ( both physically and mentally). Hope u don't have to do cycle 2 though

Bikey86 Sun 31-Mar-13 23:07:01

I think everyone feels the same science...the weird thing is I knew nothing about TTC until about two weeks ago and now my head is about to burst with info!! Lol.

Wardy17 Sun 31-Mar-13 23:29:09

AF arrived tonight, right on time!!

Signing off for a while. Need a little break from mn.

Good luck everyone. I hope April is the month for everyone waiting for BFPs xxx

chocoloulou33 Mon 01-Apr-13 01:07:57

Mines just arrived too wardy & now how u feel. Am more upset this month than I've ever been. Not sure why. Going into cycle 8 now & just feeling v negative about it all. Gonna have a minute break too. Love you ladies but seeing all the bfp's every month & never getting one myself is getting me low. So happy for you all so don't think I'm not. Just not in a good place atm. If someone could take me off the list that would be great thankyou. Good luck to you all xxx

chocoloulou33 Mon 01-Apr-13 01:09:15

That was meant to say little break not minute?!!

Bajas Mon 01-Apr-13 07:09:17

choc and wardy I wish you both the very best and hope your dreams come true. You're right to take a break when it's all becoming overwhelming. Another couple of months of disappointment and I reckon I'll be doing the same.

Sorry to hear of your troubles choc & wardysad I wish you both the best for the future and hope that you will get all dream for thanks

gillywillywoo Mon 01-Apr-13 09:35:28

Zeuxippe Mon 01-Apr-13 10:14:43

Can someone update stats to take wardy off too sad

Would do it myself but on phone

Thanks

Good luck to everyone !
Just to say it took nearly a year TTC DC1 and I remember those feelings so well choc. But it happened in the end for us - just took time and lots of it - DD is 14 today !
Wishing you all a Happy New Year thanks
(moving the New Year to January was the origins of April Fools Day !)

MrsAVB ttc#1, cycle 8, BFP (allegedly) due 30th April.
choco and wardy lots of love xxxx

Sorry to hear that Mrsav sad, sending you babydust your way for this new month.

Can someone add me to the list please as my phone wont allow me.
I'm on cycle 2 after having a mc in feb sad & pfb due on 21/04/13 #no 5.

JellyBeanDavey Mon 01-Apr-13 11:12:10

Hello April bus. Just bought my ticket, been a while. AF started today and my 77day cycle is finally over. Felt kinda left out the last few months, watched people get their AF or BFPs and I got nothing lol.

Can I be added to the list:
TTC #1 Cycle #6 BFP due 28th April (that's if it remains a normal cycle lol)

Pixie001 Mon 01-Apr-13 11:54:28

Aw choc, I'm totally with you. It's so heartbreaking when cycle comes to an end with af bitch's arrival. Please don't totally leave will you?! I find it helpful having others in the same position as me and was pleased taking got here bfp last bus as we've been on same buses for a while. even if hasn't happened just yet, I have faith that it will do when the time's right. The first couple days of cycle are worst and then you will somehow find the strength to carry on. Lots of hugs. X

Oh my god I think I have a bfp!!!

I tested this morning with a cheapy since I have no willpower and it looked bfn. Then when I went to throw it in the bin it looked like a hint of a line, so I bought a first response with my weekly shop and did it when I got home.

And there is a faint, faint second line!!! So so nervous and can't believe it. I'm going to test again first thing tomorrow eeeekk!!!

weechops Mon 01-Apr-13 15:15:37

This month is going to bring lots of smiles to so many....but it can't be the month for all of us...so let's all keep our chins up and try to take it all in our stride.

Sorry to hear of some sadness already..thinking of you girls... dreams dashed for this month....but not forever...xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Thatssofunny Mon 01-Apr-13 17:54:44

Oh, hello AF, please, do come in...take a seat, have a brew...let's not mention you being four days late. angry

Oh well, having baby in January would fit better with maternity leave anyway...wine, so I've decided to join you guys on the April bus, if you will have me. Will cycle 16 be any better? I've decided to re-start counting from January this year, since I get confused as to what sodding cycle we are on and it's just getting me depressed. Let's deduct the 6 months break we had taken due to new job and before that doesn't count anyway because...aehm,..because I say so and I'm the boss...so,...cycle 4 next, although that's not technically true, either, because we couldn't dtd in cycle 1, so really, cycle 3. grin

Thanks pixie pistachio and everyone. Ur all so lovely. No I'm not going forever. Just having a month or so off trying so hard. I ran out of ov tests this month & am not gonna buy anymore. Going on holiday in a week for a few days too so looking forward to that. Will be popping in to check on this bus now & again smile xx

deliasmithy Tue 02-Apr-13 01:05:16

Best of luck Choc and Wardy.
I know how you both feel.
Been trying since September but originally planned to try from Jan last year until OH wanted to wait. So to me I feel like im really in the 15th month of waiting.

Cramping has hit with a vengeance and af has started. Im out only one day into April. No 2012 or 2013 luck for me.

padster75 Tue 02-Apr-13 06:53:59

Back off Easter jollies, back to work and a quick pop read of my favourite MN thread. Had a great time, no temping, no stressing, no obsessing (was with the inlaws who don't know we are TTC) ....... but no symptoms and not the faintest idea of where I am cycle wise this month!!

wardy, choc & delia sorry she got you, hopefully you both will find the strength to carry on in your own time, but don't be leaving us too long, it'll be nice to know a few people when I am still on the bus in September!! wink

weechops my POAS buddy, brilliant news on the BFP, hopefully the babydust has rubbed off on the padster household.

Right I better go and drag myself into the shower and get this show on the road.

marie456 Tue 02-Apr-13 07:56:23

Sorry wardy, choc and Delia. Congrats weechops and sunshine. I'm feeling same as choc and wardy but clinging onto the slightest hope as af is 1 or 2 days late. Tested this morning and bfn. I had cramps all day Saturday and Sunday and a little brown spotting (tmi sorry) which would have prob been too late for implantation. I'm assuming what's going on is the conception vits I started this cycle have helped lengthen my luteal phase.
I'm 31 on Friday and regret so much taking the pill as long as I did and leaving until now to start ttc #1. Not feeling that hopeful this month but desperately don't want af to arrive and cant help thinking 'what if'!

Pixie001 Tue 02-Apr-13 10:20:22

Ooo weechops, congrats! A line is a line! have you tested again today? I reeeeeeaaally hope it's a sticky one, how you feeling about it?
delia sorry to hear that af got you-will you get a 2nd chance on april bus or do you have long cycles? Hi thatsso and welcome to april attempts!
Hi marie fx for you
Welcome harry will you be testing early or waiting?

weechops Tue 02-Apr-13 10:37:03

Hi padster hoping the luck continues on in the thread

pixie Just tested for the second time today, i know, i know smile And the line is definitely there! I don't even need to squint. Oh I'm nervous but excited. Fx its a sticky one.

Could someone update the list with my newest stats please? No access to laptop at mo!

Marie456 TTC #1 cycle 6 AF/BFP due 29/30 April.

Is anyone else old like me trying to conceive their 1st?!?!

Barebranches you can't get a false positive. A line's a line! Woo!
I know I'm being silly about being 31! Plenty of life in the old dog yet! Looking forward to testing again at the end of the month testing buddy mrsAVB!
Won't have computer access until end of week if I can pester someone to update me! Thank you. (marie456 TTC #1 cycle 6 af/bf 29/30 April)
