Come and join me for yet another thread blush

gilly86 Mon 18-Mar-13 17:56:59

ME! Me me me!
Was going to make a thread like this myself as I need some support in this final week... Otherwise I will resort to POAS every day!

IneedAsockamnesty Mon 18-Mar-13 17:59:57

I'm not testing then but I did just pee on 19 sticks today (well strictly speaking I peed in a plastic cup and dipped 19 sticks in it).

All same brand the bulk buy ones from amazon and have a very very faint just visible positive line on every single one. I did 1 yesterday no line at all.

I'm rather smiliey but not wanting to get my hopes up yet until I get a series of dark decent lines but perhaps I'm just being silly and should take the lines as being proper.

I'm not taking any meds or anything like that so don't think there is anything that can interfere with the results.

I'm certainly not but I know somebody who is. I hope you all get the result of your dreams smile

gilly86 Mon 18-Mar-13 18:06:05

I have 3 apps on my phone. 2 of them say AF is due Monday 25th. The other one (fertility friend) says Wednesday 27th!

Came off the pill in December so cycles have ranged from 29-31 days since then.

March was our first real month of TTC... I've been charting and used OPKs.

We dtd CD8, CD9, CD13, CD14, CD15, CD16 and CD17.

Pretty sure I OV'd this month on CD18 (positive opk on CD17 and EWCM on CD17 and CD18) and annoyingly didn't get to dtd then or since then as I went away for the rest of the week to visit family and DH couldn't get the time off work (came back yesterday).

Small BBT rise on CD19 then a huge rise on CD20.

Hoping that our 5 days in a row of dtd up until OV day could still mean I'm in with a chance? smile

Fingers crossed! X

gilly86 Mon 18-Mar-13 18:33:27

This probably doesn't mean anything (?) but just went to the toilet and noticed lots of CM... Not egg white... But very clear/not white/no colour and very wet+slippery... Almost watery.
Today I'm 6dpo.

Ahhh hope this week goes quickly!

farmersdaughter Mon 18-Mar-13 19:28:43


Ohhh sock test again in the morning. 19...blimey that's extreme POAS grin

Gilly Fingers crossed for you. We only DTD every other day, as I was advised that it's best to have a days rest so the sperm can 'develop' As my doctor said, 'you don't spend a boy to do a mans job' errr okay wink

I don't think we have done enough this month for a BFP. I had some minor surgery earlier in the month when we should of been DTD, so lots before and a bit afterwards. Have another op planned for later this month. I'd like not to have it, so fingers cross for a BFP and I can cancel it {naughty}

gilly86 Mon 18-Mar-13 19:33:31

If I don't get a BFP this cycle we plan to dtd every other day next cycle rather than the dtd marathon we had this cycle grin

farmersdaughter Mon 18-Mar-13 19:43:27

wink wink gilly it can get a bit much....

pizzaqueen Mon 18-Mar-13 20:12:03

New to this TTC thing - first month of unprotected sex, had implant removed end of Feb so still not sure when af should actually be due but guesstimate at around 27th march. So it's too early to test yet right?

Keep imagining pregnancy symptoms but of course it's far too early really.

I got pregnant with DS while on the pill (didnt miss one) so hoping I'm just really fertile but trying to prepare myself that it might take a while.

IneedAsockamnesty Mon 18-Mar-13 20:24:44

Well I got a pack of 120 from amazon for less than £20 so figured I would do a few at a time.

Will do one well perhaps two first thing when I wake up.

farmersdaughter Tue 19-Mar-13 11:41:06

Hey Pizza if you can try to hold off for a few days, yes that would be better. AF due. My AF is due on the 24th, so for me no point testing until 23rd. But my god it's tough.

Sock how the mass POAS going grin

IneedAsockamnesty Tue 19-Mar-13 12:16:04

Mass POAS complete will no longer be POAS.

farmersdaughter Wed 20-Mar-13 13:50:32

confused Sock thumbs up or down?

I'm having horrid cramping this afternoon...looks like AF is on her way sad

pizzaqueen Wed 20-Mar-13 16:20:28

This waiting thing is really annoying. I want to know!!

gilly86 Wed 20-Mar-13 16:40:14


I feel a bit silly as I just bought myself a pair of maternity jeans! LOL grin

They are topshop ones and were reduced from 40 quid to a fiver just because they had a TINY hole on the back pocket. My size and really nice!

My sister is also TTC at the mo and same size as me so they WILL be used by one of us... Eventually!

DH thinks I'm loopy!

Dowk31 Wed 20-Mar-13 16:45:30

Can I join please?! I will be testing on or around 26th march, this is proper cycle 2 for us smile not feeling any different so don't think it's our month but time will tell! Getting a scan tomo to make sure everything ok, had severe pain in left side since getting implant out in November so doc wants me checked out

pizzaqueen Wed 20-Mar-13 18:15:13

Welcome dowk. Since I got my implant out I've had a dull pain in my left side and it comes and goes. I wasn't sure what it was. Let me know how your scan goes. x

IneedAsockamnesty Wed 20-Mar-13 19:27:25

Farmers thumbs up, I'm pregnant

IneedAsockamnesty Wed 20-Mar-13 19:29:40

Oh forgot to say every time I've been pregnant and had a actual live birth around the time my first missed AF is due and the second one ive always had cramping, I've got it even now. It was what promoted me to start peeing on things

gilly86 Wed 20-Mar-13 19:33:05

Wooooow another march pregnancy! Congrats sock!!!!! smilesmilesmile Excellent news! X

IneedAsockamnesty Wed 20-Mar-13 19:38:05

Thank you according to a online date worker outer going by actual date of dtd ( only did it once) I'm due on 24th November

gilly86 Wed 20-Mar-13 19:40:55

Ahh lovely! Wow only did it once?? You lucky thing! I'll have some of what you're having! wink

IneedAsockamnesty Wed 20-Mar-13 19:50:40

gilly86 Wed 20-Mar-13 19:59:45

Well then you're very lucky smile congrats x

farmersdaughter Wed 20-Mar-13 21:10:33

Whoooooohoooooo socks outstanding news.......


gilly86 Thu 21-Mar-13 06:51:17

Caved and POAS today. BFN. 9dpo... Too early. I'm stupid!

4-6 days til AF is due anyway (cycles vary a bit).


pizzaqueen Thu 21-Mar-13 07:51:52

I caved yesterday, just after I posted here. Yes too early! I do feel better now though for some strange reason.

farmersdaughter Thu 21-Mar-13 12:40:53

No POAS, I must not, no no no no!


Dowk31 Thu 21-Mar-13 16:56:58

Def font think its my month sad had scan today they didn't tell me anything! Results in 1 week. Pretty annoyed that they can't tell u there and then if they see anything wrong x

Dowk31 Thu 21-Mar-13 17:09:52

Pizza when you had the pain in your side did u see gp? X

farmersdaughter Thu 21-Mar-13 19:31:26

AF arrived! Off forwinewinewinewinewine

gilly86 Thu 21-Mar-13 20:07:07

Arrgh sorry farmersdaughter.... good luck for april!!!! <hugs> smile xoxoxox

IneedAsockamnesty Thu 21-Mar-13 21:01:45

Best of luck for April

pizzaqueen Fri 22-Mar-13 07:42:37

Sorry to hear that farmersdaughter.

Dowk - no it's like a dull ache that comes and a bit like period pain on one side, it's only been a month since had implant out so wanted to give it a bit longer it may be unrelated.

GoSuckEggs Fri 22-Mar-13 07:59:11

Sorry to hear that farmers daughter! I am going to POAS on monday. I have had a rather fantastic month, and it all seems to be falling into place. I have quit my horrible job and have bought an old farm house! So i am hoping because i have been all chilled out and thinking about other stuff AF wil not come....!

gilly86 Fri 22-Mar-13 08:09:16

Morning all

Im now CD28... 10dpo.

Since coming off the pill in december my cycles have been 31,30 and 29 days in that order.

So expecting AF over the weekend... Possibly Mon/Tues.

POAS this morning... Still BFN.

Wish I never bought all these cheap tests cos I have no reason NOT to test every flipping day grin

Twinges and stitch type feeling on one side all last night... Probably AF on the way but obviously still hoping its not!

CM has gone from white snotty blobs (sorry tmi)..... to completely clear and watery..... to white+creamy in the space of 24 hours!

Boobs tingly.

On nightshifts for the rest of the week til I finally clock off at 7am Monday morning. Blaaaaaahhhh sad

Dowk31 Fri 22-Mar-13 08:37:01

When I had implant removed in November I felt fine for couple weeks then had pain so bad in my left side I couldn't walk, sleep etc i had to go into hospital as they thought it might possibly be ep topic preg but nothing. The pains just continued on from then! My cycles are around 33 days on cd 28 just now, not going to bother testing until I have late AF but doubt that's going to happen. I'm finding the temping part of charting pretty difficult, does anyone else temp? X

pizzaqueen Sat 23-Mar-13 07:17:38

Cramping last night and this morning so af might be on its way :-(
If it doesn't arrive by next weekend I'll poas.
Had a breavement in the family this week too so probably not the right time for happy news anyway.

farmersdaughter Sun 24-Mar-13 20:05:15

Oh pizza sorry to hear your sad news.

Not sure if we're DTD for April, I am having a operation on Tuesday morning shitting myself as its obs and gynae Whist I don't want this op at all, it will hopefully give me some answers. So don't know if DTD will be on the menu next week.

gillywillywoo Mon 25-Mar-13 08:00:24

Pretty sure I'm out. Just got home from a nightshift and got some light spotting.

Must be AF. Only good thing is it means my cycles are (+/- 24 hours) back to "normal" after coming off the pill in December . I was so worried it would take ages to be regular again.

Oh well... Another cycle begins... Lets see what this one holds for me!

GoSuckEggs Mon 25-Mar-13 09:40:32

AF due today, as yet no crapping/spotting. shift worker here to, so fingers crossed for when i test later!!

Discogeek Mon 25-Mar-13 11:40:18

Can I join this thread ladies?
I'm TTC my second, been trying since Jan so pretty early days but extremely impatient!
Due AF tomorrow/Weds and not sure if my nauseousness, tiredness and general 'funny' feeling are pmt or something a little more exciting... I think being realistic its probably PMT but can't help feeling hopeful confused
Good luck to you all smile

Unami Mon 25-Mar-13 22:03:10

I'd like to join too, if that's ok.

Have never kept close track, but should be due Wed/Thu. Impatiently POAS today and got nothing.

Not meaning to make too much of it, but I've had an unexplained rash, sporadically painful nipples and indigestion! Obviously only one of these is a bona fide pg symptom - but all are very unusual for me.

Am going to be good and wait until the weekend even if I am late.

LadyMedea Mon 25-Mar-13 22:38:58

Due today, no AF, and POAS revealed faint line. Will retest in the morning. Pretty sure I'm up the duff as no spotting like usual, soft cervix and boobs are killing me like never before.

DH and I are a bit freaked out. This is our first cycle and only dtd twice. Confirms my 15 years of super paranoid contraception habits if having sex twice is enough to get me knocked up.

Watch this space...

LadyMedea Tue 26-Mar-13 07:23:05

Slightly darker line today... I'm taking that as a BFP! grin

pizzaqueen Tue 26-Mar-13 09:28:08

Congrats ladymedea. What happy news for you.

I'm due thursday(ish) (not really sure of my cycle as just had implaton removed) but going to wait until the weekend to test if AF hasn't arrived by then.

Discogeek Tue 26-Mar-13 09:48:06

Congratulations Lady Medea!! What lovely news smile

SweepTheHalls Tue 26-Mar-13 11:29:28

Joining in AF due on Friday. I've either got pmt or mad hormones as I feel like crying at everything today. Hope it's a good sign as I really want another baby!

TheSlug Tue 26-Mar-13 15:55:58

Can I join in? I'm not due on 'til Sunday but am impatient! It's our first cycle and i think I'm just hoping that my PMT symptoms are something else... X

GoSuckEggs Tue 26-Mar-13 17:43:03

Congratulations Medea!

I was due monday, no AF, no BFP.....

SomeDaySoon74 Tue 26-Mar-13 20:06:11

Congrats Medea. If only it were so simple for us all...sigh
GoSuckEggs - me too; AF due yesterday, still no BFP though... further sigh

SomeDaySoon74 Tue 26-Mar-13 20:07:21

Sorry, didn't mean to sound bitter!! sneaks off...

farmersdaughter Tue 26-Mar-13 20:53:26

Whoop lady great news.

Good luck everyone else.

I had surgery today, feeling very odd and tried. Fingers crossed that I get a BFP soon! {yes I am shameless}

farmersdaughter Thu 28-Mar-13 20:47:12

Anyone else with a BFP?

Unami Mon 01-Apr-13 12:56:43

Still late, still negative. Due on Thursday. Tested on Thursday and this morning. I've had some on and off cramping, but that's it. My skin looks great and it normally looks terrible (puffy and breakouts) right before a period.

I stopped taking my pill (loestrin) at the end of January and got a period, like clockwork, at the end of February. If my period started again then, could I have missed one in March due to coming off the pill?

Just wondering how long I should test negative for before going to the doctor, and if there's any way of knowing when/if I ovulated and when/if I'll ovulate again.

New to all this so very confused.
