Springbells Fri 03-May-13 14:04:51

Can I join too? I bring home-baked goodies :-)

Am a relatively newly-wed aged 31 keen for a number of children if possible so obv want to get cracking with number 1! Surrounded by pregnancy announcements in the past couple of weeks so I'd love to join in with the rest of them! Just been having fun really last few months but I think now is the time for OPKs and temping. Fingers crossed for us all!

Welcome aboard londonchick smile
I'm recently married too... December 2012! I
'm 26 (nearly 27!) and DH is 30 (very nearly 31!)
Only came off the pill in December (after 10 years) and thought my cycles were pretty much straight back to normal... But I'm currently on day 40 of my cycle (they have been no more than 31 days since coming off the pill) and no sign of AF! sad
Not pregnant so.. What's going on?! Very annoying. Dr said its normal... Relax... It will straighten itself out.... We'll see!!!!!!
Good luck to you! smile Xx

AF arrived today,...nearly a bloody week late. sad I'm not quite sure why my cycle is suddenly getting longer. Last month's was as well. hmm It makes no sense with the +opk.
Hope af will arrive soon for you, gilly,...I'll try and nudge her into your direction. wink

Thought I'd jump on a bus again instead of the yearly ones! Trying to be a bit less mental about the whole thing and hoping June is my month :D
I bring banana loaf and coconut macaroons... XD

sazzababs Sat 04-May-13 10:53:11

Thanks and you too smile

We've been trying for 16 months all in all, 8 months since 13 week miscarriage :/ Hey ho, oan with the show! I appear to have no problems getting pregnant, it's maintaining it. 2 REALLY early mishaps too, so I'm getting some renal tests done. I have dodgy kidneys which may or may not be part of the issue...

32, from Scotland and have 2 hairy sons :D What about everyone else?

gillywillywoo Sat 04-May-13 11:19:25

Ahhhh ok that makes sense... So sorry about that thanksbrew
Hopefully you will get your BFP really soon and the little bean will stick!smilexx

AF is having a nice time at my house and is enjoying cups of tea with me. I'm feeling a lot better today, after taking some pain killers. (I'm usually in quite a bit of pain on the first two days, but had forgotten to take any drugs with me to work yesterday. I was a right mess...) Two paracetamol tablets usually sort me out for the day. smile
Went and ordered my wedding ring today,...and am now enjoying the sunshine in the garden.
Have also instructed DP to have a go at dtd ever other day once AF has buggered off to gilly. He's usually too tired for anything and I have done my best to time things right, but it's quite obviously not working this way. We'll see what happens. Officially only on cycle 4,...
Enjoy the sunshine, ladies (the Brits don't seem to get a lot,...which makes me want to move back home). I'll think I'll move my lazy butt now and get the lawn mower out.

barebranches Sat 04-May-13 20:37:15

hi june bus
sad to be here... its not you guys. you are lovely... its AF sitting next to me. she smells and keeps poking me. can someone take her away?

barebranches ttc#1 cycle 5 bfp due 2 june

feeling really sad but dh just bought me chocolate cake!

Springbells Sat 04-May-13 21:07:06

Hi bare and thatsso shame af showed up. Poke her back, bare,that'll teach her. Nice to see all new peeps.

[waves crazily at gilly]

Thatssofunny Sat 04-May-13 22:06:25

Hi bare...and welcome. [hands bare a stick to poke AF with]

Perhaps, if we all tell her to sod off and visit gilly, she'll eventually do it. grin

barebranches Sat 04-May-13 22:19:50

thanks for the stick!

just told DH we will be dtd ever other day from the day af leaves till bfp is due.
he was like this ---》 grin grin grin grin

gillywillywoo Sat 04-May-13 23:56:37

Hello ladies!!!

Barebranches I just laughed out loud... Said the same thing to my DH this evening! "As soon as my period has been and gone we are gonna shag every other day until next period!"

That's my plan anyway!!

He was like... blush ! Lol

This cycle I had some bleeding on cd10... It was light and only lasted a day but don't think it's a coincidence that the only month this has happened my period is late! I think the bleeding (whatever it was) has caused my body to be a bit confused.

I dunno... blush

I chart my bbt and although its been all over the place, it's now showing that I probably ovulated around cd31...we didn't dtd around that time at all so don't expect a BFP at all....
It's also now showing AF will maybe arrive on Tuesday!!!! So... Wait and see I guess! Xx

Hi Zola. brew

AF seems to be in the process of leaving already (really?? LATE and then only staying for two days??...I mean, I don't mind it...but it's a bit weird). Shoving her over to you, gilly. Not sure how far away you are, so might take her a few days, yet. grin

Have spent the day in the garden, getting tanned. wink

gillywillywoo Sun 05-May-13 21:28:07

I'm in London.... <waits for AF to arrive from you>

wink Xx

Thatssofunny Sun 05-May-13 21:36:39

Might take her a while, then. It's five hours by car, but she's not having mine. I doubt anyone will pick her up. She's not the most sexy witch to be gathered up by the roadside... grin So, she'll have to walk.

CristaBell Sun 05-May-13 23:15:12

Hello ladies think I need to board the June bus. Have POAS this morning after having 4days of brown mucus (sorry tmi) with no blood as of yet but bfn. Guess I need to take this as my Af as it started 3 days before af due. Just so annoying as have 35day cycles as it is and never been on pill or anything so guess mine are always going to be long. Really hope this doesn't mess up my next cycle. Going to try to sit here patiently whilst handing out double chocolate brownies.

Ttc #1, cycle 3, BFP due 5th march.

gillywillywoo Mon 06-May-13 12:29:32

Hi tinker! Sounds like we are all having weird cycles lately! Day 42 for me now and still no sign of AF and defo not pregnant! Very annoying!!

barebranches Mon 06-May-13 20:28:43

oh gilly! thats getting silly now. it must be so frustrating not knowing.
my friend actually skipped a period. kept getting bfns. then the next month got pregnant. so her last period was a month before it should have been. doctor told her that it happens sometimes. may be you just wont have af this month! keep dtd!!

gillywillywoo Mon 06-May-13 21:16:22

I feel a bit defeated this cycle!
We hasn't dtd for a week or so anyway due to shift work and stuff... Just want AF to come so I can feel like im kind of in control again... !

gillywillywoo Mon 06-May-13 21:18:48

I know that's the wrong frame of mind and we should carry on dtd but I just want my period!!!!!!!! angry

Thatssofunny Mon 06-May-13 22:00:20

Now, after another day of doing paperwork in the sun...(why do I have to go to work tomorrow?...don't wanna...sad ), I'm now starting to get ready for the cycle ahead. [continues to prod AF in gilly's direction] Perhaps you are missing out one cycle, and AF comes when your next period was supposed to appear?

gilly, I thought you might be the person to ask for a little help. I've started charting, but I'm finding the whole thing a bit confusing. It says to take the temperature in the morning, before I have moved around. Aehm,...I'm a really light sleeper and generally wake up before my alarm goes, so I move around a lot all the time. Will that still be ok? I'm mainly using it in conjunction with opk, to see whether I actually ovulate. Last month, it seems to have happened several days after the +opk (got smiley on cd15,...and app puts ovulation date on cd20 now,...very strange).

gillywillywoo Tue 07-May-13 06:28:50

hmmm... I don't really have an answer for that cos I have the same issue! Pretty much always wake up during the night... I either go back to sleep and do it when my alarm goes off OR do it when I wake up before my alarm if its within an hour or so...
Tricky!grin

londonchick Wed 08-May-13 11:22:27

Hi again! AF has finally left I think so time to get focused on the task in hand. Trying to temp this month but it seems to fluctuate quite a bit and I work shifts so it's likely to be even more messed up when on nights!!

Gilly, sounds like we are pretty similar. I was married in Nov and came off the pill after 10 years. Started with cycles of 37 days but then was thrown a curveball at the beginning of April and now cycle seems to be 29 days!! Any sign of AF for you yet?

Keeping my fingers crossed for us all this month!!

gillywillywoo Wed 08-May-13 12:11:20

Hi Londonchick! Glad AF has left you! Maybe she's on her way to me now as no sign of her yet! hmm

I do nights (sometimes... but rarely) and when I do nights I just don't chart a temperature at all. But still handy for the rest of the the when I'm on days!

Going to stay with my sister for the rest of the week without DH.. She lives 5 hours away so having some time with her as DH is working all weekend and weekend anyway. AF will probably come when I'm at her house sleeping in her nice white sheets! angry

HungryHippo89 Wed 08-May-13 12:39:41

Hi grin - Can I join? I bring wine and biscuit with me...

Just had my implant removed this morning sooo no idea when AF will be, but DP and I are just going to DTD as much as possible - No charting or OPK's yet for me! I'm nearly 24 and DP is 27

gillywillywoo Thu 09-May-13 07:40:43

I thought finally had finally arrived yesterday.. Wiped when on the loo and saw some blood... But nothing since. 100% NOT implantation or ovulation so hopefully AF IS on the way... CD 46 today.. This is getting a bit ridiculous!
Bbt seems to be slowing going down so... Fingers crossed AF will come and I can finally start a new cycle.

ZolaBuddleia Thu 09-May-13 12:18:08

Is your cycle normally a bit up the left? I'm hoping mine's sorted now, I used Vit B-50 Complex and cut down on some prescription medication I was taking that has (in a very small number of women) an effect on periods.

I'm not doing temp taking, any chance that might be wrong?

gillywillywoo Thu 09-May-13 19:30:30

Only came off the pill at the end of December after 10 years so cycles are taking a while to get back to normal but this cycle is particularly long! Temps are defo right.... I ovulated very late this cycle and if my ovulation date is when I think it was then AF should come any day now... Which would make sense as my temp is going down... But we'll see!

Thatssofunny Thu 09-May-13 20:03:51

Happy Birthday, barebranches! flowers

Thanks, gilly,...I'm trying with the temperatures, but it seems to fluctuate quite a bit. hmm

I'll be spending all day tomorrow eating biscuits. grin I love my job sometimes.

barebranches Fri 10-May-13 06:49:28

thanks for the birthday messages!!

now we have started the month of sex... gonna make sure my womb is constantly full of sperm... that egg will not be missed this month!! grin

Hi all, any room left on the back seat for me? A bit worried that a flying bus will make me travel sick (which I will of course interpret as morning sickness!) so I've got plenty of ginger biscuits with me smile

The details.... I'm ttc#2, cycle 1, BFP due 6/06. Am armed with my CBFM, conceive plus and about a million ic tests ready to go!

Good luck all flowers

ZolaBuddleia Fri 10-May-13 15:12:08

I don't understand the temperature thing, surely it's dependent on so many other factors?

<squeezes up on seat to let Captain sit down>
<eats ginger biscuits>

gillywillywoo Fri 10-May-13 19:47:40

Hi Zola.. Yes other things can effect your temp... but generally if you take your temp at the same time every day as soon as you wake up you will see a pattern smile

LauraSmurf Fri 10-May-13 20:30:22

Hi all, just sliding over from the may bus. I hate AF evil witch!

I am going for it this month though. Temp charting, opk, lots of swi!! And my 30th! Bring it on!

Just a light hearted story from my day about the evils of AF for you all.
I was just heading to change my sanitary stuff at break time (teacher) when a child came running in asking for help with one of my class. He was about to kick off and attack another pupil. (V violent history and he reenacts when provoked) I called out to him and he backed off and ran off. Just fabulous, I think, because protocol is for nearest teacher (me) to follow him. So I run after him, chase out the school gate and into housing estate. He slows to a walk but still won't stop. Then I realise I am really really leaking! There are blood streaks making way down my legs. So in desperation I shout out to child (please x, I really need a wee!) he then laughs and stops and comes back to school with me! I then have I go home and change. Ahh the joys if AF!

CubanoHabana Fri 10-May-13 21:28:06

Ha lauasmurf had to laugh, in my school if they leave the premises we have to call police... And anyway, if we had said that they would have laughed and continued anyway!

Gillster Sat 11-May-13 00:26:00

I'm currently having tests to see if anything is wrong. Starting to get really frustrated with the whole process so would be good to be on the bus with with some similar ladies. smile

Hooray smile and also... envy blush

I'm still waiting for AF to come and currently on day 48!!!!!!!!

So annoying! Temperature has dropped every day for the last 4 days though so hoping that means AF will come very soon.

HungryHippo89 Sat 11-May-13 09:01:53

Nearly a 50 day cycle wow!!! When was the last time you POAS?

ION not a lot happening here - was hoping for a lie in this morning but the dog just came and licked my face to get me up... Can't be angry though she's too cute!

Also I have started to wonder when I get upduffed how will people react - mainly my side as DP already has a DD. I'm worried about how my parents will react the live in another country and I've supported myself since I was 18 when they left. Mum has always been so negative about us having children (me and my sister) but did say a few months back that she wouldn't be bothered if we had kids - I don't if that means she would be happy or she couldn't care less! And also my sister I'm worried about telling her I beleive she has been trying herself for a while I know her other half has had tested and she isn't on the pill I also logged into her eBay and found she had ordered opk's ... Any one else with any similar feelings it experience?

Afternoon, after my totally odd cycle this month with spotting that lasted a lifetime 2 days and arriving a whopping 4-5 days early (never ever happened to me!) I've finally worked out my dates for June.

Hoping June is the month (a bit of positivity hurt no-one, right?!), I get to go on holiday too so a bit of sunshine, good food, relaxation, wine and maybe a BFP......I'm also going to arm myself with an OPK too this month for the first time (I figured it can't hurt hmm).

Champagnebubble ttc#1, cycle 4, BFP due between 5 - 8th June

Hey ladies. Sad to see you all here. Just climbing on after being chucked off the May bus. AF being a nightmare as always sad Think I'm in need of some chocolate.

Can't believe am here on cycle 11. I thought being 23 (22) when I started TTC it'd be easy!

Thatssofunny Sat 11-May-13 17:44:49

Congratulations to welcoming AF, gilly. grin

My temperature chart looks...aehm...funny It's going up and down every day...I'm interested to see what that temperature drop is supposed to look like,...perhaps I'll go into below 0. hmm It's jumping between 35.02 and 36.7. Showed DP this morning and he said that it looks normal for me, considering that I'm a bit weird anyway. Yeah, great, thanks. angry grin

Oh.. some girl in my team said that she was 'up the duff' with a guy she's been seeing since December, and she isn't happy with him, but he'll be a really good dad apparently... Makes me sick how fertile you are when shagging someone random.... Strange sperm and all that...

Awww thanks champagne. I'm just feeling a bit lonely as only one of my close friends has children and she's insanely fertile- got pregnant first go with both. I'm just trying to remember that's unrealistic and it could take a while and to keep cheerful. It's so hard when its all you want though, isn't it?

Like you say a couple of wines while we can! grin

gillywillywoo Sat 11-May-13 22:27:26

Following on from my post from this morning... My sister is defo pregnant with number 2! So happy for her and her hubby (I'm the only one that knows) but now I'm even more determined to get my own BFP! Want AF to go away so we can crack on with dtd!
Master plan for this month is to dtd as much as poss whether I think I'm ovulating or not! Mistake I made last month was giving up too soon... So wont make that mistake again!

Gillster Sat 11-May-13 23:51:30

I plan to do the sperm meets egg plan this month although DH away on business for next 2 weeks so can't dtd every other day from CD8 as it suggests as he's not back until CD17! Fortunately I don't usually ovulate until CD19/20 so he'll be back just in time. Absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that grin. Have ultrasound on Monday morning to check my ovaries so fingers crossed that all OK there. Good luck ladies!

gillywillywoo Sun 12-May-13 16:02:05

Hi gillster I will be doing SMEP this month as well! Although can't dtd on cd8 as we will be away with family all day and night so will start on cd7, then cd9... Then 10,12,14 and so on smile

I'm excited to get started! AF will be here for a few more days though...

CristaBell Sun 12-May-13 16:23:27

Pleased your AF as arrived gilly hopefully your be joining your sister soon smile

This might be a silly question but how do you do the SMEP?

X

gillywillywoo Sun 12-May-13 16:30:26

I only found out about it the other day but basically you dtd every other day starting from cd8.
From cd10 you also do an OPK every day and when you get a positive OPK you dtd every day for 3 days in a row (the day you get the positive and the 2 following days)... Then rest for a day then dtd one more time! (I guess you can carry on of you want to lol)

I'm so glad AF finally arrived as well... Was really starting to think it would never come!

gillywillywoo Sun 12-May-13 16:33:59

We were basically going to try this kinda method this cycle anyway as previous cycles we just dtd every day around ovulation... But I guess it's very easy to miss ovulation doing it that way! So... This month we will try this method and see what happens! Hopefully I won't have another 45+ day cycle else we'll be exhausted! Haha x

jellyandcake Sun 12-May-13 16:38:11

Can I join? Am 30, dh 33 and ttc. #2. Last time around we just went for it, conceived on the first go without knowing any acronyms at all - now I know all about EWCM, bfp and the rest of it! Am on cycle 1 and bfp is due 3rd June. Hoping it's as easy this time as last time and enjoying a nice glass of prosecco before I cut out the booze in hopeful preparation!

gillywillywoo Sun 12-May-13 16:43:44

Welcome aboard jelly!!!!! Good luck to you! smile

Hi all. Just vacated the May bus to hop across to this super flying bus if that's OK. Had 5 days of spotting which was unusual for me but now AF has arrived with a vengeance sad Anyway, I've brought homemade choc brownies for anyone who feels as rough as I do right now (and also anyone who doesn't!)

Stats are:

ImaginaryHat ttc#1 cycle 2 bfp due 10th June x

Champagnebubble Sun 12-May-13 17:18:31

Hi Imaginary - welcome! Sounds like a few of us had odd May cycles! Maybe it was the sunshine?!!! I always blame the weather on things! I'll have a brownie with you - and a glass of wine grin - seeing as I'm allowed at present!! Hope you feel better soon.

gillywillywoo Sun 12-May-13 17:23:25

Imaginaryhat! I've been expecting you wink welcome aboard!
I'm also in the presence of AF right now after having a 48 day cycle last month! Trying to get back to normal after coming off the pill... Hopefully this cycle will be better! Good luck smile

Thanks Champagnebubble it does seem that way doesn't it. Might join you in that wine when I have my spag bol in a while!

PS gilly I've never seen anyone so happy as you to get AF as you this month, such a long wait for you! Was nearly as happy for you as I was for people announcing their bfp's grin

Fx for a super fertile June bus!

gillywillywoo Sun 12-May-13 17:30:55

Lol thanks!!!! wink
It was a long wait.. Felt like forever. I know there are ladies that have had much longer cycles but it was very unexpected and abnormal so I was not happy at all!
DH was getting bored of me saying "I'm still not on my period!" Every day!

Got good feelings about June/July! Lets do this smile

Gillster Sun 12-May-13 17:58:23

Just spent the afternoon with a good friend and their 4 month old baby - lovely! It took them 2 years to conceive so gives me hope that it's all possible but much patience needed!

Springbells Sun 12-May-13 20:39:29

Hello, hello. Just poking my head in to catch up and meet all the new peeps.

gilly. WOOHOO. Nuf said.

grin

CristaBell Mon 13-May-13 14:51:52

Thank you gilly the SMEP sounds like a good idea, going to suggest it to DH now. I haven't used ovulation sticks before but I have brought some ready for my next cycle! Just waiting for AF to start which should be this week.

Good luck everyone.

x

Champagnebubble Mon 13-May-13 15:02:02

Woohooo my OPK's have arrived! Opened the box and this is me ---> confused! Now need to decide when to start using them!

Gillster Mon 13-May-13 15:30:52

champagnebubble - are your OPKs the ones where you have to look for the darkness of a line or are they smiley face ones? Although much cheaper I found the line ones hard to work out and prefer the smiley face ones. Give it a couple of cycles though to see what you think, although hopefully you won't need to do more than one cycle. smile

Champagnebubble Mon 13-May-13 15:45:40

They are the smiley face Clearblue ones! I figured that I obsess so much with line pg sticks I couldn't handle them! The digital pg tests are waaay too expensive though sadly otherwise I'd be digital all the way!

Did you trust the leaflet guide as to when to start testing? I thought I had nailed my cycle length (31 days) as for the last two months that is what it was, but then the last month threw that all off course with everything arriving earlier than expected! I don't want to trust the leaflet as a guide and then go and miss it - On CD 5 now!

ImaginaryHat Mon 13-May-13 15:47:24

Just had an email saying mine have been despatched too so should be here tomorrow, along with my 20 ic pg tests for my obsessive poas!

I've been using opk's for a few months before starting ttc from about cd11 and getting positives between day 15-18, although I usually get af for about 6-7 days so maybe start a bit sooner if your periods are shorter? (*disclaimer - this 'advice' is based on no scientific fact whatsoever and only what seems logical in my head, if someone else says differently then they are almost certainly right!)

Champagnebubble Mon 13-May-13 16:00:16

Imaginary Haha - I love the disclaimer! Hope your package arrives soon!!

Clearblue reckons you should start on CD 11 (28 days) and CD 14 (31 days). So....I think maybe I will start a bit before that and see what happens - which takes me nicely into the weekend to start and play with my new toy haha !!!!

Gillster Mon 13-May-13 16:16:56

I seem to have settled into a 33 day cycle so I personally start about day 13, expecting a positive around day 19/20. Maybe start around CD8 to make sure as pretty unlikely you would ovulate before then. I think the leaflet states CD6 for a 28 day cycle which I suppose for thoroughness is what you should do but these companies obviously want you to use as many sticks as possible!

ImaginaryHat Mon 13-May-13 16:33:22

That sounds v similar to the ic ones I'm using (getting definite strong lines following a day or two of fainter lines so I've not used the clearblue ones before.) Just had a look at the instructions from an old pack and it has a chart, for a 28 day cycle says day 11, for 29 day 12 etc so seems to tally with what yours say. You're probably right Gillster about them wanting you to use a lot of sticks!

Champagnebubble Mon 13-May-13 16:51:23

Thanks ladies for all your advice! I've marked CD 8 on the calender to dip the toe in (metaphorically!) to see what is happening! Let's just hope I don't get so obsessed that I use them all before the smiley face appears, haha! hmm

Do you both bother with temping too? That all seems a bit too much of a hassle for me personally....(although I will never say never!).

ImaginaryHat Mon 13-May-13 17:03:17

No I'm only officially on cycle 2 so not bothering with temping at the moment (seems like a hassle to me too!) so just gonna see how it goes over the next few cycles, and if no luck then will probably start. Hopefully we won't need to!

Gillster Mon 13-May-13 17:26:35

I've never bothered with temping as too much hassle and seems unnecessary if the OPKs work fine. Also the temp drop is after ovulation so you'd have to do a few cycles first to predict when you would ovulate so you know to have sex before the expected temperature drop. I think using the SMEP with the OPKs pretty much covers all bases and you can't do much more. A positive from the OPKs generally backs up what my body is doing around ovulation too (EWCM plus slight cramping) so that's enough for me although not everyone may experience this.

Champagnebubble Mon 13-May-13 17:33:34

Yes, I agree - hopefully we won't need to!! I'm only cycle 4 so I'm still quite chilled about it all but here is to a lucky June for us all!!

Champagnebubble Mon 13-May-13 17:35:49

I guess plenty of DTD and use of OPK's it is! grin Hehe.

ImaginaryHat Mon 13-May-13 17:45:04

Yeah, not too bad really is it grin

gillywillywoo Mon 13-May-13 17:54:28

I'm temping as well because I like to continue dtd as much as poss at least until my temp has gone up+stayed up so i know I've DEFINITELY ovulated!

Last month I had positive OPKs a few times and possibly due to stress/nightshifts I didn't actually ovulate... I think sometimes your body can gear up for OV but then not actually do it. I ended up ovulating much later in the month and over 10 days AFTER my first positive OPK!

Gillster Mon 13-May-13 17:58:26

Good to know.

gillywillywoo Mon 13-May-13 17:59:39

So basically I will be doing SMEP AND temping from now on cos I guess there is a risk that you COULD get a positive OPK but not actually ovulate... And you could end up ovulating maybe a week or so later by which time you may have already stopped dtd thinking that you've already ovulated when you haven't!

Champagnebubble Mon 13-May-13 18:02:46

Gillywillywoo - that's interesting, thanks for sharing that. I will see how I get on this month...! I think you are more disciplined and organised than me though, don't you have to do it at the same time every day? I know what I am like - I'd be constantly be forgetting and thinking ugh, I can't be bothered! blush

Chahroc Mon 13-May-13 18:05:19

Champagnebubble Mon 13-May-13 18:10:15

Welcome Chahroc!

ImaginaryHat Mon 13-May-13 18:10:59

Ooh I didn't know that, I've just assumed that if I got a positive opk result then I'd ovulate. I think I have been because of slight cramping and ewcm matching the opks but I might give it another couple of cycles then start temping, which is probably sooner than I would have so thanks for the info Gilly smile

ImaginaryHat Mon 13-May-13 18:12:59

Welcome aboard Chahroc!

gillywillywoo Mon 13-May-13 18:37:56

Haha yeah it's hard to get used to doing but basically my thermometer is right next to my phone on my bedside table... When my phone alarm goes off, I take my temp straight away and put it on the app on my phone. Sometimes I go back to sleep.. Sometimes I get up... No biggie!
It's quite common for your body to get an LH surge and gear up for ov but then not actually do it... Having a cold/flu, stress, nightshifts.. All these things can possibly delay ovulation so that's why I'm temping as well.

Was sure I ovulated on cd17 last month.. Positive OPK and all the usual signs... If I wasn't tempting I wouldn't have known otherwise but my temp stayed low and didn't actually rise til cd31 and I ended up having a 48 day cycle! shock

Champagnebubble Mon 13-May-13 18:50:38

Gilly do you use any old thermometer? I'm assuming there isn't a special magical TTC one, hahahaha! I have one in the bathroom cabinet...

gillywillywoo Mon 13-May-13 19:17:27

It needs to be one that can measure exact temps like 36.65, 36.69 etc....
I have the babymad bbt thermometer off amazon.. 5 quid! X

Hello new people. grin

We are slowly moving into sex week, according to my APP. I've been temping since the beginning of this cycle (same idea as gilly, SMEP and temping,...but I seem to fail on both), however, it just doesn't "look" right. I know I'm weird, but really? It goes up and down all the time. confused It frequently drops between 0.5 and 1.0 degrees without me ovulating...and then it jumps back up...and back down. hmm

I assume all you lovely ladies are taking your daily folic acid supplements? smile

gillywillywoo Tue 14-May-13 08:58:16

I'm taking pregnacare conception and a 10mg b6 tablet (boots own box) every day....
Thought the extra b6 might help straighten out my cycles/luteal phase and 10mg is a really small amount extra (I think some women take 50-100mg!) smile

gillywillywoo Tue 14-May-13 08:59:11

Plus there is already b6 in pregnacare but I just thought I'd have a little extra (doctor agreed it can only do me good!)

Morning all! CBFM has gone to high already... I'm either going to ovulate mega early this month or going to get days and days of highs - this is first month of trying for dc2 and its a whole different ballgame figuring out when to dtd with a 2 year old in the house (who never sleeps, argh!)

thatsofunny do you move around a lot in your sleep? I think temping is most accurate if you've been lying completely still for 3-4hrs before taking temp - easier said than done! Mine jumped around a lot but could sort of see a before/after pattern as was higher on average after ov, used monitor too though so that helped. This time round not even attempting to temp as never get 3-4hrs uninterrupted sleep!

HungryHippo89 Tue 14-May-13 10:02:45

Morning All - Haven't posted since my original post as I didn't really have any news to share ... But I am 90% sure I ov'd yesterday/Sunday horrible achey feeling on my right lower stomach sunday and yesterday and didn't sleep well at all on Sunday night and had a horrible achey back all day yesterday. All signs seem to of gone today. Since this is my first month without the implant not sure how long it should be from ov to AF so i'm going to go with the average and predict AF for 27/28th May (I think that's right if not please correct me) But if I am right ... I shouldn't even be here please don't kick me out i just started to get comfy

Managed to DTD on Sunday and this morning wink

Anyway updated stats ..

HungryHippo89, TTC #1, Cycle 1, BFP due 27/28th May

Anyone else close to starting the 2WW?

Gillster Tue 14-May-13 10:18:49

What is CBFM?

It's like a military operation this TTC malarkey!

I'm already in a really negative place, thinking "Oh I'm probably not even ovulating" eventhough I have no real proof of this. I am getting really down because I brought some cheapy OPKS and whilst I haven't been doing them religiously I have yet to get a positive out of one and it is making me sad

This and the fact that work is really full on (am a teacher) right now and I'm constantly knackered and so is DH (also a teacher) and a close friend is 4 months gone and positively glowing so everything just feels rubbish.

Snap me out of it ladies, I need a firm hand and a good telling off about my negative attitude.

Gillster Tue 14-May-13 11:28:20

somedizzywhoretry not to get all down about it, it's early days for you. If you can afford to splash the cash go for the pricier OPKs. I could never get a positive out of the cheapo ones and I have a degree in biochem! They may not be sensitive enough. I find great comfort in seeing a smiley face every month (I'm 39) even if I don't get a BFP. To quote a cliche: "it's a marathon not a sprint" and whilst some ladies may get a gold medal on the first lap, a good proportion of us are going to have to go round the track a few times! It's hard when you've got demanding jobs but just try to get to bed earlier and keep focussing on the end result. It will all be worth it. smile

Ooopsy double post grin

Thatssofunny Tue 14-May-13 20:20:54

CaptainCalamari I roll about all the time...I don't think I sleep for 3-4 hours in one go during most nights, since I tend to wake up a lot...and then go back to sleep. I'm a really light sleeper. We'll see how it pans out for the rest of the month.

somedizzy I've got the more expensive OPK's that Gillster is suggesting and it's quite exciting to see the smiley face each month, since I'm too lazy to think about whether the line is darker on the cheap ones or not. (I've got better things to do in life...just give me a smiley face!) I'm a teacher, too - so is DP - and the stress is possibly not helpful. However, we've got several members of staff off on mat leave or about to go, so it should happen...even for teachers. grin At least it means I get faced every day with how I certainly do not want my children to turn out. blush (I've got some really lovely pupils, too...)

Sorry Gillster its Clearblue Fertility Monitor... its like a different language isn't it! It gives highs for a few days before ovulation, and then two peak days when you ov. Worked in a couple of months for me last time so hoping I'll get lucky again!

ZolaBuddleia Wed 15-May-13 10:15:15

All this talk of scientific gadgets is making me wonder if I'm missing a trick. I have PCOS, and I'm sure I've read that OPKs aren't reliable in that instance. Any thoughts?

This month the plan is to DTD every second day from day 10 to the end and see what happens.

Thanks for the heads up on ClearBlue seatfor5 I went and brought some last night and started using them there and then.

My cycle is seriously messed up this month (period came 5 days early, after 3 months of being regular as clockwork after having my coil out, so I am only on day 5 or 10 depending on which chart I am using) and wasn't expecting a smiley face, but just seeing the gadget at work made me feel 100% better about everything and more in control of the situatuion. I think that is really all I need- the illusion of control.

Thatssofunny Not only do I know how I don't want my kids to turn out- I know exactly what I won't name them too!! grin grin Are you secondary? I am and at the end of my tether with GCSE stress!! Gah!!!

Gillster Wed 15-May-13 13:03:03

Thanks for the info CaptainCalamari it really is another language! To the teachers among you, you deserve a medal, I don't know how you do it. At least your summer break isn't too far away. Plenty of time to rest, recuperate and dtd! wink

Amiasmummy Wed 15-May-13 16:04:48

Hi ladies! Room for another on your bus? I have a HUGE stash if chocolate wink

I'm 27yrs old and ttc baby #2.. My daughter, Amia, was stillborn 26th September 2010. Her dad and I had separated half way through the pregnancy so ttc again wasn't an immediate option, despite yearning for another baby. After some time spent grieving and healing a little, I met my OH in December 2011. We've recently settled in a new home together and decided to try for our first baby together.

It's very early days.. I only had my implant removed on 8th may, but was lucky to have Aunt Flo arrive on the 11th. I say lucky, although in all honesty I would have preferred her not to come at all!! I feel so nervous and excited about pregnancy, I already know it will be the longest 9 months filled with worry! I'm hoping the ttc wait is not too long or I might just burst!!

Thank you gillywillywoo thanks

Can't wait for AF to sod off now.. Was nice of her to pop by and let me know my body is working but hoping she's at least starting to pack her things and move on wink looking that way at the mo.. Fingers crossed, she won't outstay her welcome.

I have no idea how long my cycles will be, but predicted bfp due date with the assumption I'll revert back to the 28day cycles I had before the implant. Could be way off, but only time will tell eh!

Good luck and best wishes to you, and all the other ladies on this awesome flying bus.

gillywillywoo Wed 15-May-13 19:34:36

Good luck Amiasmummy thanks
AF has finally gone away for me so I can crack on with dtd for the next few weeks smile
My last cycle was 48 days (previous ones around 30 days) but only came off the pill in December so I think my body is still getting used to being pill-free.
Was so happy when AF finally came and even happier now its over and done with! grin

Amiasmummy Wed 15-May-13 20:26:41

That's great news gillywillywoo I'm glad she was a polite guest lol
I hope your body has settled itself now after that inconsiderately long cycle! I can imagine the wait was very frustrating!
Wishing you lots of luck (and stamina). May your dancing days be fruitful grin

so far so good with dtd every other day!! grin wont miss that egg this month!
hope every one else is having just as much fun!!

BartBaby Wed 15-May-13 21:16:23

Hello ladies smile

Hope you dont mind me hopping on board aswell!

Im 27 and just married DH (32) 6 weeks ago. We are ttc #2. Im on cycle 2 but just had a short 2 day AF this month. Not sure if that means anything particularly?! Just started opk testing today. Seemed to work ok last month i think as i got a couple of faint lines followed by a really dark one showing ov on cd14. Hoping to time the dtd better this month as DH sometimes works away during the week.

BabyBart ttc#2, cycle 2, bfp due around 4th june i think

Hope you are all well smile

Fingers crossed for you all xx

Thatssofunny Wed 15-May-13 22:05:28

Somedizzy I teach UKS2, but my class this year feel like I'm back teaching some really annoying Y11s. Never had so many spiteful, nasty and horrible children congregated in one room. (They are all really lovely on their own, which is why their behaviour as a class is so frustrating.) Can't wait for them to bugger off to secondary school...someone needs to take them down several pegs. (I'm missing my older ones...much more effective having Y8 tell my newbies not to annoy me, because I'm apparently a legend and not to be messed with...haha...) Which subject are you teaching? Good luck for the GCSEs,...SATs are nearly over. grin
Come one, holidays! I really need a break,...and a bit less stress. My new class will be nice,...I'm looking forward to that.

AF is being a right biatch for me this month, really heavy and painful. Hopefully over the worst of it now, just got to wait out the next few days then can get down to plenty of dtd grin Hope af's being kinder to everyone else being visited! Gilly glad she's left you and let you get on with things!

Hope everyone is doing great

Good morning everyone smile

Its good to see lots of people on the bus now. Its reassuring to have people here in similar situations to me knowing how im feeling! Lol.

Im now on cd11 so hoping to ov sun or mon based on last months cycle. We have a child free night this weekend so that can only help with dtd wink

How is everybody else getting on?

Hope you all have a fab weekend! xx

Amiasmummy Fri 17-May-13 09:55:52

Good morning ladies! I'm pleased to say AF has left me now smile I've been charting my temp but getting really erratic readings (probably because I've not been sleeping too well) charting my CM as well, and obviously watching out for that ewcm. I wasn't originally going to use the clear blue ovulation sticks, but have given in to temptation and ordered some yesterday!! Hopefully they'll arrive in time for me to get my smiley face this month.

Imaginaryhat I hope AF is easing up a bit for you.

fox I am one of the cheeky ones on cycle #1.. I ummed and aahed about whether to hop on the bus as I know there are lots of ladies who have been ttc a lot longer, but I figured we're all in this together regardless of how long we've been trying.

bart Hope you have a VERY good weekend wink

Good luck and baby dust to all! flowers

Hi All,
I am a newbie to this forum, so still trying to get the lingo ;) so bear with me. I would like to "hop on the bus" too though smile

TTC#1, cycle 1 (ish!), BFP due 4th June

MrsBarlow Fri 17-May-13 12:04:52

Well AF arrived early yesterday so i'm jumping on the June bus - fingers crossed!!

TTC no.2 cycle 3 BFP June 9th

A question that someone might be able to answer:

I brought some ClearBlue digital ovulation tests on Tuesday as per the advice of the lovely ladies on this board.

Been doing them about 5pm each evening and no smiley face yet (wouldn't expect it really as am only on day 8 or day 12 depending on my dates-messed up cycle this month).

However do the lines mean anything? I have googled this and looked around Mumsnet but can't find a clear answer. I think the second line is getting stronger but don't know if that's my imagination...?

Many thanks!

FloJo151 Fri 17-May-13 14:13:29

hi everyone, need to jump aboard from the May bus please, af came yesterday so am on cd2. think I ovulated later than I thought in may so I think I only had a 9 day luteal phase. Do you need to consult a doctor before taking b6 or can I just buy some from boots or somewhere? Also how much should you take when trying to lengthen luteal phase?

FloJo151 ttc#3, cycle 9 bfp due around 10th june

gillywillywoo Fri 17-May-13 16:06:23

Hi dizzy.. The lines on the digi ones pick up all manner of hormones and surges so only go with the actual digital result (smiley/empty circle!) x

Hope everyone doing well! No OPK smiley face for me yet....!

londonchick Sat 18-May-13 08:48:02

Morning!! How is everyone doing? I'm on cd16 now and got my smiley face yesterday morning so we managed to dtd in the afternoon. Hoping to do it again later. Eating more healthily this month and going away for a few days during the 2ww so hopefully that will keep me nice and relaxed and stop me symptom spotting!!

gillywillywoo Sat 18-May-13 09:23:54

Morning all! Cd8 for me and DH and I are staying with my sister and her family for the weekend. So will not be dtd today but back home tomorrow evening so hopefully we can make a start for the month then! grin
Started using OPKs today... I've stocked up on loads of clearblue digi ones so I'm really going for it this month! Obviously no smiley face yet but I'm not going to miss it like I did last month!

barebranches Sat 18-May-13 10:34:36

hey everyone! happy shagging. we are dtd every 2-3 days this month... ovulation predicted tomorrow but im keeping sperm in there till next af!! lol! DH got a new job so this month would be perfect to get a bfp! grin

trying not to get my hopes up though!
*john waynes it to the buses chocolate counter* grin

Thanks Gilly I will ignore the lines grin

MushiMushi Sat 18-May-13 15:00:37

Hi everyone! Thought I'd jump aboard. Finally get to ttc after waiting 2 months for the all clear from various test. My partner isn't going to know what's hit him in a couple of weeks.

Well I feel off mays bus but as I'm off on hols in June and flying around my fertile time I'm sure this flying bus will suit me just fine. Had a 37 day cycle this time so hoping going back to normal 30 day ones. Horrible being late and get lots of negative tests. Silly body trying to trick me.

jellyandcake Sun 19-May-13 07:43:54

Right, I'm about to give an excessive amount of information about my cervical mucus, for which I can only apologise. Noticed EWCM Thursday morning and accordingly dtd Thursday evening (cd14). Didn't really notice anymore EWCM on Fri and definitely none on Sat, it was scanty but clear and thin. Due to a stressful and exhausting weekend combined with sleep-resistant toddler we haven't managed to dtd since Thursday but the EWCM seems to be back today. I usually get loads though and it's been nowhere near as much. Today is cd19 and I'm worried we may have missed the window. Have announced intention to dh to give it another go tonight but am kicking myself for falling asleep Fri AND Sat!

jellyandcake Sun 19-May-13 07:53:24

I mean I'm on cd17 and can't count! Re supplements, I'm taking folic acid and vitamin d as anything containing iron like pregnacare made me sick (or at least even sicker!) last time around. Am also trying to cut down on coffee but struggling!

gillywillywoo Sun 19-May-13 08:23:01

Heeeey science smile sorry you've had to join us... Really hoped you'd get your BFP on the may bus!
Good luck for June xx

Not using opk's at all this month, we didn't last month until I got EWCM so checked and got a smiley face, can't be bothered to waste any more money on them so going it alone!
Finally started taking the folic that I bought ages ago so we shall see if that has any effect.

Champagnebubble Sun 19-May-13 11:06:39

Jelly - I'd personally just keep on going (ahem!) - and try and cover all bases just in case!

Science - sorry to see you here (in a nice way).....June is a super positive bus though!

Wakey - it's my first month of OPK's and I am still getting the hang of it! I keep forgetting they are there and no smile yet. angry. Hoping I actually get one!

gillywillywoo Sun 19-May-13 11:12:17

Just found out my cousins girlfriend is pregnant.. Due on Christmas Day... And my sisters baby is due a couple of days later!
envyenvyenvyenvyenvyenvyenvyenvyenvyenvyenvy

Champagnebubble Sun 19-May-13 11:16:58

Gilly it will be your turn soon brew

If I could choose, I'd rather my birthday be after Christmas anyway....like February, maybe?! smile

CristaBell Sun 19-May-13 11:55:32

I know how you feel Gilly, it's the same in my family!

But i'm feeling very confident about June and agree with champagne, February is a good birthday month smile

gillywillywoo Sun 19-May-13 13:10:15

Yeah im thinking the same.. smile

I love winter and like the idea of being pregnant in winter... The thought of being pregnant in summer makes me feel a bit anxious! I live and work in London and I don't think I could cope with the commute etc when it's warm...

I'm thinking more and more that it will be nice to have a spring baby! smile

gillywillywoo Sun 19-May-13 13:12:59

My mum thinks my sister in law might be pregnant too... Just saw her and kinda of agree with my mum! Wonder if she is...
Everyone's pregnant! envy

FloJo151 Sun 19-May-13 13:59:41

hi all, tmi here but Im not sure if im having another cp. AF came last thurs right on time but my cycle pattern is usually first 2 days heavy with period pains and then 3/4 more days of light.
this month so far am still bleeding fairly heavy on day 4 (soaked through tampon in 4 hrs today which although I might sometimes do that on day 1/2 is unheard of on day 4) and also having mild period pain which doesn't normally happen this far in.
I was sure I was pg last month as was feeling sick every eve and also getting headaches like I did when I had my cp in aug. I didn't test cos I didn't want to be disappointed so was only gonna test if I was late.
is it worth testing in the morn just to see?
its prob just my body being silly but although my periods have always been heavy (got endometriosis) its only ever been heavy for the first 2 days.

monkette Sun 19-May-13 14:11:40

Can I join this bus if there's a space please (plus I love flying) cycle..god knows but bfp due 13 June.

Hi FloJo... Sorry to hear you're having a rough time. I can't offer much advice as I really don't know but hope it stops soon so you can crack on with another month of TTC xx

Thatssofunny Sun 19-May-13 15:22:00

Hello all newcomers (it's getting quite busy on the bus). Brought some strawberries. grin

Poor gilly. It's rubbish when everyone around is having what you want. I went to the supermarket today and everyone in the whole world seems to be either pregnant or run about with a pram. envy We'll get there!

I'm on CD17..and still no smiley face. hmm It's been as late as CD19 before. We did dtd today, just because I'm getting annoyed...and it's the weekend...and I know we'll be too bloody tired during the week.

Bullets Sun 19-May-13 16:46:51

Can I hop on board please? (Hello champagne and thanks for explaining!)

Never done a thread like this before so I might struggle with some of the acronyms, please be gentle with me!

AF turned up yesterday and surprised me - my usual 33 day cycle has cut down to 29 this month, just to keep me on my toes!

Will be trying for number 2, and fingers crossed BFP will be sometime in the third week of June!

BartBaby Sun 19-May-13 17:44:31

Hello everyone smile

I hope you are all well and having a good weekend. Welcome to all the newbies smile

gilly hope you are going ok. My cousin has just had a baby and my best friend is due in november! It will be our turn soon. Dont forget we are all here for you flowers and a feb baby does sound good doesnt it?!

FloJo i dont really know much at all about cp so i cant offer much help but i do hope you are ok. Let us know how you get on.

So far this month im on cd13, and got my +be opk today so im right on track for ov tomorrow. I think! Lol. we have dtd on cd4 cd6, cd8, cd11 and cd12. And im hoping to today aswell if we can manage! And hopefully a few days next week aswell just for fun wink So i think im covered for this month?!
Im not looking forward to the 2ww. I find that the worst part. Im trying to be hopeful this month, while still trying not to get my hopes up too much just to be disappointed.

Anyone else just heading into the 2ww? xx

Solaia Sun 19-May-13 18:38:02

Hi all newbie alert

I'm not technically a newbie - started TTC in September 2011, stopped January 2013 as DH and I were sadly crumbling under the pressure sad I am happy to report that we are back on track, things are better than ever and I came back off the pill 5 weeks ago. Waiting for AF to turn up in order to start working out my cycles and temping again.

Bit nervous, last time I had 15 cycles without so much as a sniff of a BFP. Heartbreaking. Fingers crossed this time we are a bit luckier.

panicmechanic Sun 19-May-13 19:28:17

Hello, please can I jump on? TTC numero 2. Have been trying for 6 months, had a MC in February and sadly had a stillborn son. Had a funny cycle this month (I am currently away on business sad) so not sure if the flying etc. caused an issue. Started to have brown discharge on the 16th (which is when I was supposed to AF) and full on AF on the 18th. I normally have a 30-31 day cycle so that I think is a BFP on 19th June. I know I should know this but does this mean my TWW is from the 5th of June. You all seem to know all this stuff and I am baffled. Have tried the OPK and to be honest I think them from mid cycle on and never seem to get a smiley face - any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated x

Champagnebubble Sun 19-May-13 19:53:33

Hey Bullets glad you ventured on over! Welcome!

Also hello Solaia* and Panicmechanic!

Champagnebubble Sun 19-May-13 19:54:05

Sorry....that meant to say Solaia!!!!

Springbells Sun 19-May-13 21:02:20

And into the 2ww... I hate this bit, I can forget about ttc but no matter how sensible I am I still end up getting hopes up! [gives self stern look]

gilly sorry I hear you're surrounded. Hope your ok flowers

A feb baby would rock, I'd be just getting to grips with life and a baby in time for getting out and about in spring summer! falls off seat laughing hysterically thinking about newborns and lack of sleep

Hope all the regulars and newbies have had a lovely (and productive) weekend! grin

Morning! Another day, another friend announces their pregnancy! Gilly I know how you feel!

Am obviously thrilled for them but still a small part of myself is jealous!

Think I'm on the 2ww now. Don't think June will be my month to be honest but have to wait and see!! Busy at work this week so that should stop me symptom spotting...maybe!!

Hope everyone is well! X

CristaBell Mon 20-May-13 07:33:17

Morning everyone, hope you all had nice weekends!

I'm on CD5 today, still awaiting for AF to fully clear then can start the SMEP. Will hopefully dtd before cd8 though! smile

Flojo sorry I can't offer much advice either! You periods do sound similar to mine (heavy) and occasionally I do have a month worse then normal. Hope your feeling better today.

Best of luck solaia & panicmechanic

Still no smiley face for me sad but sore boobs and have got the raging horn (TMI!! lol) please someone tell me this is a good sign.

Back home after a couple of days away with family as ready to start dtd!

Been using clearblue OPKs since cd8 and will be dtd very other day from now on until I get a positive OPK and then we will dtd 3 days in row etc (as per SMEP!)

I'm ready to rock and roll! grin

Thatssofunny Mon 20-May-13 19:11:33

Still no smiley face. hmm I'm getting worried that I've missed it. How annoying.

gillywillywoo Mon 20-May-13 19:28:50

Keep testing thatssofunny! And also keep dtd... !! We haven't been TTC for long but I'm already annoyed with myself for giving up too soon some months!
You could be having a slightly longer cycle than usual or your luteal phase may be a little shorter than usual this month but keep at it! smile

Thatssofunny Mon 20-May-13 19:51:55

We dtd yesterday and will have another go tomorrow, regardless of smiley face. DP is pissed off today (work-related) and that never works out... He'd just get annoyed and wouldn't be able to finish,...and then get more annoyed. blush Patience. I need some patience. wine
If it doesn't turn up soon, I've either missed it...or a really long cycle. Well, 33/34 days is still quite long for me, although it seems to become more frequent.
Does taking conception/pregnancy vitamins make your cycle longer?

apprenticemamma Mon 20-May-13 20:08:15

Need to wait until June before i POAS so we will see how it goes try not to get too nutty!

xx

Just got my first ever smiley face on a clear blue ovulation stick and then tried on two cheapy ones and got positives as well. Something's definitely happening! This is my first in three months of ttc so I'm wry excited!! gringringrin

Very not wry lol

gillywillywoo Mon 20-May-13 21:09:21

Ahhh yay somedizzy smile
This is my first full month of using digi ones and I'm excited to see a smiley face! Don't want to be deciphering lines anymore!!!! Good luck x

marie456 Mon 20-May-13 22:24:17

Thanks Gilly I found it! Hi everyone!
This bus is packed already!
Marie456 TTC #1 cycle 7 bfp due 2nd June
Due to late ovulation I've been thrown off the May bus. Grrrrrr!

Gillster Mon 20-May-13 22:58:06

Excellent news somedizzy about the smiley face, told you it would make you feel much more positive. You go girl!

SpannerPants Tue 21-May-13 07:37:10

AF has just arrived and kicked me off the May bus so here I am! Had an epic 40 day cycle but hopefully that was just from coming off the pill and things will settle down now!

I'm on my phone so could someone add me to the stats please?

Spannerpants ttc #2, cycle 2, BFP due 28th June

Thanks Gillster feeling so much more positive. I was convinced I wasn't having the correct hormonal peaks and troughs so I feel lots more like this will happen, even if it takes years!!

April13 Tue 21-May-13 08:38:20

Morning all!
I am new to this (forum, thread and TTC!). I have just started my 2WW and am already bored/stresses/impatient/think the worse! It was our first month of trying, so I don't think June will be our month! Think I messed up my calculations too sad DTD on CD10 and CD11. DH has been away CD12,13 and 14, don't know if DTD is worth a shot tonight as theortically ovulation should have been CD13. Got a positive with the test on CD12 morning and all negatives since? Really need to work out what the best window is....any advice for an impatient, control freak newbie? smile

April13 this is my third cycle ttc and I am such a control freak. You are not alone.

Gillster Tue 21-May-13 16:03:28

Well just had my HSG test which came back clear smile
Just have to wait for appointment for removal of endometrial polyp. They also said that as they had disturbed the lining of my uterus I should probably wait until next month to TTC. Looks like I'll be the first person on the July bus then!

BartBaby Tue 21-May-13 18:30:02

Hi ladies

april13 im only on cycle 2 and im right there with you on the going mad already! I should have ov yesterday so just starting the 2ww aswell. I found this the hardest part last month but i think its helping being on here with people that know how i am feeling and are in the same boat as me. If you ov on cd13 then anything up to 5 days before that could do the trick. So you dtd on cd10 and cd11 could work. Fingers crossed for you. When are you planning on testing?

For anyone that has a smart phone or tablet ive downloaded something that ive found really helpful. Its called period tracker and you can get the 'lite' free version. It tracks your periods and cycle lengths and shows when you should be ov. It also lets you add moods and symptoms to the calendar so its easy to keep track of and compare days. Its also very pretty with flowers on the tree when you are due to be fertile flowers lol.

Hope you are all ok xx

CristaBell Tue 21-May-13 22:30:03

Welcome April13 and katekate smile

April13 I was going to say the same as bartbaby, if you dtd on cycle days 10 and 11 you might still be ok - good luck.

Bartbaby - have you tried 'my days' app? it seems the same as the one you have mentioned but you can add when you've dtd.

x

BartBaby Wed 22-May-13 00:00:23

Thanks CristaBell i will have a look at that one. You can add dtd to the one i have aswell, but it will give me something else to add to and obsess about! grin

Welcome to the club heidi - it look like we will be poas around the same time. Good luck with the wait! xx

Oh, good morning smiley face! You do realise that it's CD20, don't you? Ah, you got stuck on the motorway around Bristol. I do understand that...it's not a pleasant place to be. Well, you are here now, and I've already enlisted DP and his attachment for tonight and tomorrow night. We tried yesterday, but DP was too tired to get to the end... blush

ZolaBuddleia Wed 22-May-13 07:50:14

Have rather fallen off the wagon this month, nowhere near enough shaggage.

April13 Wed 22-May-13 08:22:37

Thanks BartBaby and CristaBell! Here's hoping. DH was n the mood last night...kind of like last chance saloon...lol we will see what happens. I have already been having imaginary symptoms lol, namely a really watery mouth and just a feeling of queasiness. I know these are in my head but hey gives me a completely false sense of hope smile
BartBaby Not sure when I will test, i thnk AF is due 2nd/3rd June so ideally will wait until then, however, I have a girls night on 1st and a communion on 2nd, where copious amounts of gin and cava could easily be consumed so I will probably start testing on Friday 31st...who am I kidding, I'll probably do tests from this week but just pretend that I haven't...I need to get a grip smile

Thatssofunny good luck with smiley face shagging tonight!

CD7 here. Boring.

FoxMulder Wed 22-May-13 08:47:32

I've had no signs of ov up until yesterday, cd 21! (or possibly 20 depending on when you count from - AF creeps in slowly over a couple of days, doesn't just arrive like the flood gates have opened). It's rather annoying, I'm quite keen to give up shagging now grin

AF due on 2nd so I might test on the 1st as it is my birthday so can indulge in prosecco and pate and funny forrin cheese.

Also, can I check - I thought I had a 31 day cycle, ie period on 1st April, next one on 2nd May, next on 2nd June, but when I put this in the mumsnet ovulation calculator it tells me next AF is 1st June. Eh? That doesn't make sense. Isn't that counting the last day twice? (as the last day of one cycle and the first of the next). I need to get a smartphone so I can download these fun sounding apps [sad git emoticon]

Well this is the beginning of my 2ww and I feel like I am already getting periody symptoms, weird cramping and a headache, really knackered....

....I fear this cannot be a good sign and am wondering what the hell I can do to encourage conception. I'm taking B vitamin suppliments and trying to rest. Come on Baby Dizzy, please be in there!! grin

ZolaBuddleia Wed 22-May-13 11:17:10

Think I may to bit the bullet and get an OPK even though they're of limited use for PCOS sufferers. I had a tiny bit of EWCM this month, and nothing since.

barebranches Wed 22-May-13 18:08:00

sticks arrived... one peed on within 10 mins. why when i knew it was going to be a bfp... im only 4 dpo!!!

barebranches Wed 22-May-13 20:18:38

oh god cant stop eating chocolate... is this a symptom?

bare unfortunately I think it just proves your female.

Solaia Wed 22-May-13 21:15:48

Oh well, AF arrived today... On to cycle 17. I'm in my twenties, fit and healthy - it's not meant to be like this! sad

In the nicest possible way, I hope I won't see you on the next bus!

Gillster Wed 22-May-13 21:28:12

Solaia have you been to your GP yet? Sorry AF has got you yet again flowers

heidihole Wed 22-May-13 22:16:35

Sorry to hear that Solaia. Has your DH had his sperm checked/counted/whatever the lingo is? I think it must be time to see the GP by the time you're on cycle 17 especially at your age. Good luck.

CristaBell Wed 22-May-13 23:24:48

Sorry to hear that Solaia flowers X

Hello Ladies, I've managed to log on in my lunch break today smile rather then 11.30 at night!!

It's CD8 for me to day so start of SMEP smile

Hope everyone is having a good day. x

gillywillywoo Thu 23-May-13 17:59:29

Hi christabell! smile

Cd13 for me today... Couldn't start SMEP on cd8 as we were staying with family (thin walls! Haha) so started on cd10.

Been using OPKs since cd8 though and no smiley face yet... My cycles have all been around 30 days since coming off the pill in December but my last cycle was 47 days! Hope that was just a one off!

Previous to last months 47 day cycle, I think I was ovulating around cd17-19. All my apps suggest next week is my fertile week...wondering when I will get a smiley face on my OPK!

Fairypants Thu 23-May-13 18:35:21

Excuse me ladies, is that a spare seat I see?
I come bearing wine but secretly hoping everyone else is upduffed so can't have any
I'm feeling a little glum after getting kicked off the may bus at only cd22!
I was determined to ttc au naturell as I can be a little obsessive but am now starting to get a bit worried obsessive and wonder of a bit of opk action might not be a bad idea.
My average cycle is 24 days but range between 22 and 28 (mostly 23/24) and I'm starting to worry that there isn't enough time for everything to happen iyswim. My dd's were conceived by 'accident' but that was 10-15 years ago and I'm now 35 so things have changed somewhat.
Should I be worried this early on? Any advice on the test situation?
My stats are Fairypants ttc#3 cycle 3 BFP due 16th June

BartBaby Thu 23-May-13 19:17:19

Hi fairypants smile

Im on cycle 2 so far and have used opk's both months. Mainly as im a bit lot obsessive! But also to give me an idea of when things are happening in there. Ive used the asda ones, and the cheapy ones off amazon. They're bery similar and were both accurate. I got a few days of no lines and faint lines. Then a darker line meaning positive. If you have a shorter cycle it might be worth giving them a go to see when you are ov and to see if there is enough time afterwards for everything to happen.

Im hoping that a few months of using the opk's will give me an idea of what my cycle is doing and then stop using them, although i doubt i will actually be able to! Lol.

How is everyone else doing? Im 3dpo so waiting impatiently patiently and counting down the days until i can poas

Xx

April13 Thu 23-May-13 19:55:27

Ok before i start I'll give you all a TMI/mingingness alert! I'm on day 5 of DPO and am wondering if I have a completely imaginary symptom. I noticed today that I seem to have some white/cream CM. not an excess, but visible on my pants. Now, I can't don't want to remember if I have seen this before. Is this normal (as normal as normal is anyway!) or am I on the wishful thinking come symptom creating spotting?
Thanks ladies x

barebranches Thu 23-May-13 21:15:17

hi april
i have the same and im also 5dpo... i thought it was non fertile mucus? could be wrong and we're both up duffed!!!grin

April13 Thu 23-May-13 22:28:12

Barebranches it's amazing what you can turn into a sign of pregnancy when your nuts, mental, deluded, desperate waiting smile

CristaBell Thu 23-May-13 23:20:58

Hi Gillywillywoo, good luck with the smep, it will be interesting to see if it works for us both! I did do a OPK today but they are only cheapie ones, it was my first time using them so got a bit excited and didn't read the instructions probably!!! The result was negative but when I looked at it about an hour later it had a second faint line but I think that might be an error!! Could I really be ov on cd8? My cycles have always been 28 days. I'm away this weekend so it does mess up my smep a little too!

Good luck to everyone smile x

Fairypants Fri 24-May-13 00:12:52

Thanks Bartbaby, I've just had a long discussion with DH and decided to have a go with the opk's. as you say, it's the best way to know what's going on.
We've also decided, if we're doing tests, we might as well go the whole hog and do the smep. I really don't want to turn dtd into a planned event but, at least this way there is a specific end- after which we can relax and just do it fun.
It feels better to have a plan anyway.

gillywillywoo Fri 24-May-13 07:29:46

Cristabell - the OPKs that have lines will pretty much always show 2 lines! Well... Mine do! grin

I always see the control line (obviously) and then the test line ranges from nothing to very dark (and everything in between) for the whole cycle. I can't get on with OPKs like that anymore because I end up spending too much find comparing the lines and lining them all up trying to work out what it means!

I've decided to spend the extra money and use clearblue digital OPKs. It's either a yes or no... There's no line deciphering to do! I feel more in control this way!!

Testing once a day, getting my result, and carrying on with SMEP either way smile

Can't wait to start Dtd again for our wee baby. Onwards and upwards.no spinning this week due to AF . Will be glad o get at it again on Monday .x

I think I will invest in some clearblue okp today then, thank you Gilly.

Hey ho, good luck to all those doing SMEP, good stamina! grin

Bullets Fri 24-May-13 17:45:31

Sorry for being so dim but what is SMEP??!!

gillywillywoo Fri 24-May-13 20:10:07

Smerm meets egg plan!!!!! smile

Dtd every other day starting on cd8. Also use OPKs every day from cd10.
Once you get a positive OPK you dtd 3 days in a row, take a day off then dtd one more time.

I guess you can carry on if you want after that but my DH would be nackered by that point! Lol grin

barebranches Fri 24-May-13 23:19:07

spring i have sicky feeling and stabby pains too! feeling very aware of every twinge in my body though... one week down (nearly) one to go!

Bullets Sat 25-May-13 08:31:24

Wow! Thanks gillly I LOVE the plan!! grin

Bullets Sat 25-May-13 08:33:32

I've been using an app, Period Tracker, to monitor my periods and moods / symptoms the last few years, obsessively months.

Is it worth getting the OPKs too??

Champagnebubble Sat 25-May-13 09:37:22

Bullets I used clearblue opk's this month and couldn't recommend them enough. It showed me two smiley faces two days in a row so I knew that all the symptoms I was experiencing (stabbing pains etc) were right! It's actually quite reassuring too that I could see it!!

Champagnebubble Sat 25-May-13 09:45:50

How is everyone on this fine bank holiday weekend? CD 17 for me today, positive OPK's on CD 14 and 15 and nowt since. Now begins the wait.....eugh!

apprenticemamma Sat 25-May-13 10:10:34

Hi champagnebubble. 11dpo for us. Overinterpreting EVERY twinge and overusing google. Last night I swear my abdomen was pulsing!!!!! Exhausted too. Going to keep busy and enjoy the sunshine with our DS....don't want to bfn early;) .

Champagnebubble Sat 25-May-13 10:31:05

Good luck Apprenticemamma! I hope it does mean something! I hate the 2ww, I really do! I do what you say = overinterpret every twinge and google them all! Hehe!

apprenticemamma Sat 25-May-13 10:41:15

Hope so too. 2ww torture. Last time just let nature do its thing, this time round smepping, opk, googling etc. My Google history is shocking!

Champagnebubble Sat 25-May-13 15:33:52

I'm after a bit of advice ladies....I got a positive OPK on the evening of CD14 and again on the evening of CD15. CD15 I had really bad pains. Next evening (CD16) the OPK was negative (yesterday) and no pains then (mild ones today actually CD16). Does that mean I have ovulated? blush I've never really thought about it before!

Champagnebubble Sat 25-May-13 15:36:28

sorry....mild ones today CD17, not 16!

Thatssofunny Sat 25-May-13 17:06:15

I'm not sure this has worked this month...and I seem to be all over the place. Got smiley face on cd20 -no smiley on cd21, how odd, must have been a rather short surge-, dtd on cd17, cd19 and cd20 (had no chance on the other days sad ), my temperature crashed yesterday -cd22- and shot up again today (I am starting to believe that I am indeed a bit weird). I think I have ovulated, but I'm not sure DP's swimmers were on time... We are now in 2ww, and I'm trying very hard not to get my hopes up with these stats. sad

gillywillywoo Sun 26-May-13 08:11:58

I can't help at all with ovulation questions!! Most months I have no idea when I've ovulated grin
This is the first month of using clearblue digis which I'm hoping will be much better than previous months where I've spent far too much time comparing lines on cheapy OPKs!
Cd16 today and still no smiley face but I'm sure it will happen soon enough!

Pixie001 Sun 26-May-13 11:18:31

Hi everyone, been a bit slow boarding this magical flying bus due to being away with work. I've now reached double figures with my cycles, which had really hoped wouldn't happen.
Hope you're all having great BH wknds and BD like crazy! Woo hoo...got some sun!
thatsso and champagne sounds like you've ov to me.
I'm doing a cb trial this month trying out their new cbfm. Not used one before so will be interesting to see how it compares to ics.

Pixie001 Sun 26-May-13 11:43:16

..Oh and my stats (so gilly can keep busy) are:
Pixie001 ttc#1 cycle 10 bfp due 16 June ...a week after our 1 yr wedding anniversary!

gillywillywoo Sun 26-May-13 11:44:41

Hi pixie! Glad you're here!! smileKeep us updated with the fertility monitor!!!!!!
What's your stats? I'll add you to the list! Sorry it's taking you so long to conceive... Maybe the fertility monitor will uncover some secrets about when you ovulate etc and you will get your BFP wink xx

barebranches Sun 26-May-13 12:13:27

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH going out of my mind!!!! Just want to know now!
Can't even test obsessively because DH has hidden my tests shock

gillywillywoo Sun 26-May-13 15:57:14

Wait another week barebranches!!! You can do it!!!!! grin Xx

Champagnebubble Sun 26-May-13 16:15:21

Thanks Pixie! I've just read on Google (aaaagh, I must stop googling!) that getting a negative opk after a + means it is likely to signify ovulation. Oh who knows....! Looks like I'm in 2ww now. Fingers crossed, positivity and lucky charms for us all.

Thatssofunny Sun 26-May-13 17:02:16

barebranches get a good book, a nice drink and spend the time outside in the sunshine...trying to think about something else. You've got a naughty DH. grin Give it some more time and fx. smile

Pixie I'm pretty sure I've ovulated, since temps have moved up further today and I'm close to hitting the 98 degree mark (it was at 96/low 97 degrees for most of the cycle so far, apart from a few spikes here and there...). However, having ovulated so late in the cycle, my stats will probably change and I'll try to step away from any sticks until the 6th or 7th July. This is going to drive me nuts,...(I might have to nick barebranches' book and and drink confused ).
It doesn't help that my mum asks me every week on the phone whether I'm pregnant yet,...I think she believes that I am and just not telling her. hmm

Thatssofunny Sun 26-May-13 17:03:37

JUNE, oh God...July...imagine! I'd be a complete and utter nutter by that point!!

apprenticemamma Sun 26-May-13 18:33:02

Champagne bubble think smartphones a lot to answer for!Here at the front of bus AF due today/tomorrow but no sign...or should i say intermittent twinges so lets see. Going to be supercrabby tomorrow if b#$@/^! Rd af comes...

Champagnebubble Sun 26-May-13 19:44:52

Haha Apprentice they certainly do have a lot to answer for! Wishing you good luck and that AF does not arrive! Keeping fingers crossed that we had luck this month!

Keeping getting the odd mild pain over here and of course it is a sign, hehe!

Champagnebubble Sun 26-May-13 19:48:13

Keeping getting? Haha. Darn smartphone!

jellyandcake Sun 26-May-13 21:14:27

Well I must be into the 2ww and don't have any symptoms so...who knows? Haven't bought any tests and going to try not unless/until AF is late. Don't 'feel' pregnant though. But keeping fingers crossed!

Pixie001 Sun 26-May-13 22:37:38

branches your dh obviously knows u way too well!

thatsso good effort with temping, I think I'm gonna give up. My sleep is so irratic and I forget so often that I can't seem to get any decent trends.

champagne yep, def sounds like it to me too but good to dtd every now and again just in case

gilly i put my stats up on my 2nd post tuts at gilly's slipping standards wink

I forgot to test ov with cbfm yest so did today and got a low but it still wants me to test tomorrow which seems pointless as I know it'll say low again. If I was paying for these sticks I'd def skip it but given it's all free I might as well succumb to my poas urges (branches you must be envious grin)

Got to phone up for my day 21 blood test results on tues. Missed day 3 bloods due to being away so have to wait another cycle for them

barebranches Mon 27-May-13 08:27:43

just had a massive argument with dh about why i cant just have one test. he said no!!
im 10 days dpo today so it could work. sad

Ninunina Mon 27-May-13 09:09:53

Oh! Can I join? Can I join?
I was meant to start ttc#2 next month, but we got a bit carried away this weekend I calculated that I should be ovulating today b or tomorrow... meaning I'm officially on the June bus grin
Let's see if I remember how to do this:
Ninunina ttc#2, cycle 1, BFP due: 12 June

barebranches Mon 27-May-13 09:10:10

he gave me them in a strop
.... i did a test... it was negative. now ive got to deal with the he was right consequences!

gillywillywoo Mon 27-May-13 09:12:20

Haha pixie looks like you posted your stats as I was posting asking for them! We must have tuned into eachothers minds grin

gillywillywoo Mon 27-May-13 09:16:34

Cd17 today and had a little "hiccup" over the weekend on SMEP!

So far dtd cd10, 12, 14... Tried on cd16 (yesterday) and DH ran out of stamina and gave up! blush

Anyway we are both off work today so dtd this morning and he was fine again grin

So now we have dtd on cd 10,12,14 and 17.

Still no positive OPK (using clearblue digis every morning).... Although slightly concerned this morning as I took my temperature when i woke up as normal and it had shot right up! Hope I haven't ovulated already and the OPKs didn't pick it up?! That would be annoying sad

SomeDaySoon74 Mon 27-May-13 09:59:06

Hello everyone. Can I join please (just to torture myself really).
Somedaysoon74 ttc#1, cycle 17/4 post TFMR, BFP due 2 June
Please can someone add me to the list as I can't do it on my phone.
barebranches - ha, I'm totally with you with the early testing except I crazily did one this morning on 6dpo. BFN (OF COURSE - WHEN WILL I LEARN?) blush
Also doing the googling (imaginary) symptoms thing. Poke-y feeling in uterus plus slightly larger/firmer boobs. Ha! I do this every month...
Good luck everyone.

P.S. pixie, lyndsey, gillster, littlepink, solaia - Double figures for ttc cycles sucks eh?! sad Got any tips for keeping up-beat?
pixie - I too am (not so secretly) hoping for a BFP to mark my one year wedding anniversary. Mine is the exact same day AF is due so it will either put a dampener on our anniversary or make it extra- good. Planning dinner & drinks the night before so I can have some champagne either way. blush

Ninunina Mon 27-May-13 10:19:26

Lol! barebranches DH sounds a bit like mine. If it were up to him I would test 2 weeks after missed AF. I'm quite the opposite, I'm not even sure if I've ovulated and I'm already symptom spotting hmm

April13 Mon 27-May-13 10:25:52

Ok, tmi alert! Got myself excited this morning symptom spotting! I'm 8/9 DPO and there was some brown CM when I wiped this morning. I've got slight AF like twinges although in telling myself I'm imagining these! Far too early to test but wondering if could be implantation or imagination or AF?! I usually spot a couple if days before AF, but would expect this until later in the week!

Champagnebubble Mon 27-May-13 11:08:29

Sounds possibly, potentially positive April!

April13 Mon 27-May-13 11:44:14

I hope so Champagnebubble but i also know that my mind is very good at tricking me lol! Made myself go to the loo four times in the space of 2hours to keep checking. Need to get a grip of the control freak again!

onelittlepiglet Mon 27-May-13 12:13:55

Hello can I join please?

Finally got AF after a cycle of 36 days (usually 28 or 30 - of course it does this the month we start ttc so i start thinking I must be pregnant because I'm late...) so hopefully will be on the June bus testing around the 30th possibly...depending in when I ovulate and what on earth my body decides to do this month.

Ttc #2 cycle 2 BFP due 30 June (ish)

Champagnebubble Mon 27-May-13 14:48:26

Haha April - that made me laugh! Four times in 2 hours is impressive!!

I'm 6dpo and I'm trying desperately not to read into anything. I keep getting twinges/pains in my abdomen like early period cramps but they are more like ovulation cramps and felt yucky yesterday/bit sick (which could be anything!). I know it is too early to have signs, but I just can't help it!! Note to self: MUST STOP IT! blush

Pixie001 Mon 27-May-13 15:43:13

someday I find some cycles are easier to keep positive than others..having other stuff goin on in life to keep busy helps. We're moving house and I've been away with work so that helps the ttc obsession. I've got used to af arriving unwanted now but still trying to keep in control where I can. Hence trialing cbfm this time and going drs last cycle. How about you?
piglet sorry to hear af messing with you.
gilly dh and I have had similar issues. Thankfully not a permanent problem but if we bd too often or when not in mood we do find issues with keeping flag raised or finishing the job hmm. It strangely seems as important for us to know when not to bd as when to. Don't want the pressure impacting us.
Hope you symptom spotters are keeping away from google grin

ZolaBuddleia Mon 27-May-13 16:13:57

Perhaps TMI, but I've just had a bit of mucus type stuff with a tiny red dot on it. What's that? I'm day 24 I think.

Gillster Mon 27-May-13 17:54:14

someday I am positive most of the time although do have my down days. I've got friends who tried for over 2 years and either have a baby or are currently pregnant so that gives me hope. I also try and focus on the good things I have in my life e.g. great husband, nice house etc.

I'm currently in the middle of tests and am awaiting an appointment to have an endometrial polyp removed. I'm hoping that once this is sorted I'll be on my way smile
Have a nice wedding anniversary! It was ours in April and unfortunately AF timed things very poorly. Still a great day though so don't be too disappointed if AF does make an unwelcome appearance.

barebranches Mon 27-May-13 21:18:35

really itchy boobs tonight... they're itchy inside if u know what i mean!! symptom??

apprenticemamma Mon 27-May-13 21:20:25

Zolabuddleia. ...hopefully implantation? Keep positive for a positive everyone. My AF was a day late today nada however I can feel a horrible familiar creaking in my stomach and mild lower back pain. I am now still googling obsessively ( today I crossed a line with damn smart phone at work agh! ) but terrified to test!

Springbells Mon 27-May-13 21:26:52

bare could be. I'm hoping so as I have really, ahem, itchy nips!?! Random. Also still with the sicky feeling, although hoping not a sign of impending stomach bug. Hey ho, the wait goes on. Sorry to hear bfn today, will be keeping things crossed for you.

apprentice. Good luck with poas, and zola - does sound hopeful!

April13 Mon 27-May-13 21:29:28

I just feel like I'm getting AF. Thought noobs were hard and made DH squeeze them to see if he felt a difference. I'm actually going insane!!!

April13 Mon 27-May-13 21:30:32

Fat digit syndrome!! Boobs not noobs!!!

Champagnebubble Mon 27-May-13 21:39:55

Haha, April, when I just read that I assumed noobs was a cutey/slang way of saying boobs, hehe!!

apprenticemamma Mon 27-May-13 21:41:29

Lol April! Springbells thanks and same to you. Last month my ds gave me norovirus which seemed like morning sickness at first...but as I lay on the toilet floor spewing my guts up I had to concede that not even hrh k middy had morning sickness on this scale! ( i then had to face up to good friend and colleague who i had cheerfully hinted was preggers...beamer!!!) Fingers crossed its a good thing for you though.

Thatssofunny Mon 27-May-13 22:18:55

Got itchy nipples as well, but I'm not sure it's any kind of sign (since I'm wearing a new bra, and they now seem to rub against the material when I move...in a nice way...and I let my boobs enjoy the sun yesterday, which is not something they are commonly used to in this country, so they might still be in shock grin ). I had an entire cycle where my boobs were feeling funny throughout and really hurt...still got visit from af and a bfn in the end. sad

I solved the "double figures"-problem when counting cycles by re-starting with the new year (and we had Ofsted during my fertile week in cycle 1, so that doesn't count...). I believe it's up to me how much I allow this number to torture me by rising steadily each month. Despite that, it's doing a pretty good job of getting me down every now and then.

Pixie001 Mon 27-May-13 23:40:38

Ha thatso good top tip!
Itchy boobs...that's a new one hmm

Beccadugs Tue 28-May-13 05:57:01

Hi Ladies,

AF has finally kicked me off the may bus... Can I join you?

Beccadugs TTC #1 cycle #2 BFP due 30/6/2013

April13 Tue 28-May-13 08:43:23

Don't think I have ever had itchy nipples....can't imagine that its fun smile Well I commited a cardinal sin this morning and POAS (well actually in a cup then dipped a cheap amazon test stick!), needless to say it was a BFN....I am hoping its only because I am only 9/10 DPO...oh well another day of dreaming up imaginary symptoms symptom spotting and endless google searches to confim what I imagine I have can only be due to being pregnant and not because AF is due on Sunday/Monday!

gillywillywoo Tue 28-May-13 09:20:06

I'm feeling a bit bleeeehhh today hmm
Cd18 and still no smiley face on my OPKs! I'm longing for a smiley face!!!!!!!

I have a few apps on my phone and based on my previous cycles they are telling me that this is my fertile week especially towards Fri/sat. So really really hoping I get a positive OPK in the next few days!!!! Gahhhh!

jellyandcake Tue 28-May-13 11:04:09

Zola, the way you've described it on your other thread as a glob - when that happened to me, I was pregnant so good luck!

barebranches Tue 28-May-13 12:20:21

writing reports....sigh.. thinking i might not have to do this next year!! smile)

DisneyDiva87 Tue 28-May-13 12:45:31

Holy moses, this is a busy bus already!

CristaBell Tue 28-May-13 13:08:00

Stay positive gilly I'm sure your get your smiley face by the end of the week smile

barebranches I've been thinking the same thing while sat at work this morning smile

CD12 for me today! We are suppose to be following the SMEP but we've been DTD on days we wasn't suppose, as well as the days we are suppose to!! I'm not complaining though grin

mummytolucas411 Tue 28-May-13 13:18:31

Can I join? I'm 24 and already have a 3 year old DS who wasn't planned, hoping I conceive quickly this time!

Springbells Tue 28-May-13 13:47:41

Bugger. Bugger, bugger, bugger. First on the bus, now first off. And on again. Arghh, stupid cycles! Af got me, 7 days into the 2ww. Humph.

Gilly, pls update my stats? thanks i actually still qualify for the June bus,
Springbells ttc#2 cycle 7 bfp due 28 June

If anyone has an advice on day 21 progesterone level testing with lpd (I.e. how do they adapt the timings for such short cycles after ovulation). I would be very grateful as thinking this is the next step.

Off to sulk quietly angry. Good luck all those testing at the start of the month!

Gillster Tue 28-May-13 13:54:25

Hi Pixie, the endometrial polyp was identified by ultrasound and confirmed with HSG (Hycosy). Just wish they could hurry up with the appointment to sort it as feel in limbo a bit at the moment.

barebranches Tue 28-May-13 17:15:48

raaaa itchy boobs again! its really annoying!! plus im extremly (tmi) windy...! symptom??? cant take not knowing much longer! grin

Pudgy2011 Tue 28-May-13 17:22:33

I'd like to join the June bus please!

Pudgy2011 ttc#2 cycle 2 bfp due 24 June

Sorry AF got you springbells sad no advice but hopefully someone will have some idea... generally these forums are better informed than the average GP, that's for sure!
I'm 9dpo today and have been testing for two days grin so that's 2 BFNs for me so far! Damn internet cheapies, too tempting!

gillywillywoo Tue 28-May-13 19:51:00

Thatssofunny Tue 28-May-13 20:22:13

gilly I wouldn't worry, yet. Mine turned up rather late this time round, too...and only stayed for one morning. hmm

Sorry to hear that springbells. Fx for the next round. wine

My nipples have stopped being itchy. grin I do believe that my body sends out all kinds of weird signals due to us ttc. Not sure whether it's equally confused/apprehensive as my brain is...but it seems to make up an awful lot. My temp's gone down again this morning, we'll see whether it'll rise again tomorrow and this was just another weird "jump", similar to all the other ones so far this cycle. (My temp chart looks nothing like the pretty ones you can find online...more like the Alps.)

apprenticemamma Tue 28-May-13 22:16:45

Just peed on a stick (in my ds potty actually hehe)...bfn ...so not sure if I'm defo off this bus but at 15dpo will retest if no af by Thursday. Springbells I may well be joining you xxx

apprenticemamma Tue 28-May-13 22:19:05

I am now googling' no af, bfn then bfp 15dpo' and simultaneously plotting boarding the booze bus this weekend , care to join me Springbells? !!

Springbells Wed 29-May-13 08:57:41

Booze bus... Great idea apprentice. But if you stand me up for a bfp I'll understand grin

SarahMargaret Wed 29-May-13 09:46:49

Officially reached the 6 month trying without success horrible landmark. To say I'm pissed off would be polite. Never thought it could be this hard, especially when hubbie 28 very healthy athlete, doesn't smoke rarely drinks and me 25 eats well, drinks lots of water, no longer drinks caffeine all decaf and uses opks every month to make sure sperm is there!!!!! Beginning to think the worst now, feels like I'll never see a bfp, a cute baby bump, go looking for buggies and maternity wear, be sick every morning, and after 9 months slog finally have a beautiful bouncing baby that's wanted more than ANYTHING!!!! sad sad sad

barebranches Wed 29-May-13 10:10:20

sarah same... same... its all very depressing. I started ttc in january and i was really deluded that it would be quick.
Here i am 6 months almost later waiting for my period yet again.
sad

ZolaBuddleia Wed 29-May-13 12:19:31

Ooh jelly, that would be fab. Was your glob as late in the month as mine though? And were you already pregnant when the ectoplasm arrived, or was it late ovulation that was then successful?

ZolaBuddleia Wed 29-May-13 12:21:32

Fingers crossed for all you ladies waiting a long time. DD took 9 cycles to conceive and it felt like forever. flowers

DisneyDiva87 Wed 29-May-13 14:52:09

Hello, can I join the June bus?

I'm due on the 9th grin)

I'm quite excited to be here now I've realised that I'm no longer party to the May bus as of AF's visit 2 weeks ago.

Captainmcgraw Wed 29-May-13 15:02:42

Hello, is it too late to jump on the bus? TTC#2 cycle 6 (feels like 60). BFP due 14th June

Monstamio Wed 29-May-13 15:18:00

AF has kicked me off the May bus so I'm standing with my thumb out by the side of the road hoping to catch a ride. I bring (ahem) opal fruits grin

My stats are: Monstamio, ttc#1, cycle 2, BFP due 28th June (ish)

Good luck everybody!

Thanks Gilly you're a star, have a cuppa on me for your hard work brew

Good luck to everyone!

gillywillywoo Wed 29-May-13 15:24:58

So many of us on the June bus already! smile
The test line on my digi OPKs is getting darker but still no smiley face! Just gonna keep dtd as much as poss and wait+see!

So far dtd cd10, 12, 14, 17 and will be dtd tonight (cd 19!).

DH has already been told we will be dtd tonight! Haha grin

Defo haven't ovulate yet.. Temp went up one day but went straight back down so still low temps.

I think I'm starting to notice my CM is becoming more and more egg white.. Maybe... Sooooo... Where's my positive OPK?! Oh well! <keeps shagging> grin

DisneyDiva87 Wed 29-May-13 15:29:18

I had a wee count after you posted the list Gilly I counted about 50 of us! Can hardly believe there's so many. We DTD about every 3rd day while on hols (the days we didn't go to the Disney parks!) and it was right over my predicted fertile time so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Plus the 9th is my birthday! What a fab present would a wee 2nd line be.

gillywillywoo Wed 29-May-13 15:29:41

Updated your stats Disney wink

Right I'm off to Westfield to do some shopping! DH is going to meet me there once he finishes work and we are having TGI Fridays for dinner then going to the cinema to watch the hangover 3 grin
Then dtd when we get home afterwards! Haha xx

DisneyDiva87 Wed 29-May-13 15:36:21

You didn't have to but thanks Gilly.

I counted again, 56 of us, here's hoping we get a brick load of BFPs!

gillywillywoo Wed 29-May-13 15:39:33

Fingers crossed for you disney smile
I'm feeling a lot more in control this month. Doing one (and only one!) clearblue OPK every morning at the same time and dtd every other day as per SMEP method!
Last month I spent far too long agonising over lines on cheapie OPKs and I got a bit obsessive! SMEP method is great and feeling much more chilled out smile

DisneyDiva87 Wed 29-May-13 15:56:20

Thanks gilly I am realistic about it and know I would be VERY lucky if I got a BFP but you can always dream right?

I'm googling the SMEP right now I've not heard of it before

gillywillywoo Wed 29-May-13 16:03:22

Yes google it! smile

DisneyDiva87 Wed 29-May-13 16:10:33

I gave it a quick google and decided key words were too obvious to be looking at it in work... I'll wait till I go home I think.

katekate84 Wed 29-May-13 16:14:17

Hi everyone!
Blimey there's loads of us ttc- let's hope the June bus is as successful as the May bus! Currently on CD12 so we are dtd every other day at the moment! Drinking lots of grapefruit juice, taking my frolic acid and using 'conceive plus'! What else could I be doing?!? wink

katekate84 Wed 29-May-13 16:15:15

*folic acid
Though frolic acid also sounds fun!

DisneyDiva87 Wed 29-May-13 16:17:00

What does the grapfruit juice do? Has it got a particular vitamin in it?

Captainmcgraw Wed 29-May-13 16:36:25

Disney - I'm usually very sceptical about these things and read that there's little scientific evidence for grapefruit juice increasing CM however thought what the heck as I really quite like the taste anyway and I have to say that after drinking it every day for last week I'm pretty certain it does have an effect (almost instantaneous in fact). Not sure it will then actually help with conception as a consequence but one more thing to do to make yourself think you're upping your chances eh?

Thatssofunny Wed 29-May-13 17:14:25

I'd like some frolic acid. grin
In 2ww and bored. This is no fun...went swimming and to the gym today and decided I should go more often, because I now appear to be an unfit slob. Sod work. I have a rather difficult term to look forward to, so will try to go swimming at least twice a week to balance this out. Didn't manage to go once last term. sad

Hello, Can I get on the too please? (waves to flag down the bus)

I am ttc#1, cycle 1, bfp due 1 June

I've been trying to maintain some sense of normality and not think about it untill Friday at least - so put off joining. I just found myself considering whether my hayfever (that I get every year) might be a pregnancy symptom, and realised it isn't working! Good luck to all of us.

SomeDaySoon74 Wed 29-May-13 18:06:26

OK, so who's gonna crack first? - there are a whole load of BFP's due this weekend! I for one am starting to stare at my super drug tests (bargain at 2 for 1 price) rather more than I ought to! This morning I made myself go to the loo quickly as soon as I got up so as to avoid temptation. (I only ever test first thing so was off the hook for the day.) Have managed to convince myself (yet again) that I'm pg - what a wally!
Frolic acid - love it!! grin
Off to see Great Gatsby tonight - yay!

April13 Wed 29-May-13 18:13:01

Feeling a bit rubbish, did a rest and got a BFN &#128532; I used one of those Internet cheapies; the 10 miu/ml ones? Do I count myself out? I'm 10/11 DPO and thought if I was they'd defo pick something up?

SomeDaySoon74 Wed 29-May-13 18:28:11

Oh no April. Did you do the test first thing? I think you would defo need to test first thing at 10dpo. Don't lose hope, you're still in the game. I'm not too fond of Internet cheapies so early on, I never find them accurate. Super drug cheapies every time! Good luck!!!!!!

apprenticemamma Wed 29-May-13 18:30:22

Right so after another two week wait of self delusion wishful thinking symptom imagining I am leaving the June bus to join the booZe brie and prawn because we can bus!. Af arrived late last night sad . Enforced joviaility is masking deep disappointment. After a long five week month and a shit day at work the booZe bus has already stopped off for a pitcher of pinot grigio refuel... hic x

apprenticemamma Wed 29-May-13 18:31:46

Springbells our bus is going to be well stocked .. and much better than the June flying bus!

Coffee1Sugar Wed 29-May-13 18:32:13

Oo can I join please?! Ttc no 2. Dd was a miraculous never-missed-pill baby hmm so I'm on my first cycle of actively trying! Today is cd22 and veryyy crampy. Hoping it's implantation and not Af making an early unwanted appearance

BartBaby Wed 29-May-13 18:39:04

I admit i cracked aswell blush eventhough im only 9dpo and knew it would be a bfn! It wasnt even fmu! Although im thinking now that it will still be a bfn next week when i should really be testing. Fx for all those testing or testing again xx

April13 Wed 29-May-13 18:47:12

Hey SomeDaySoon I did one this morning and one tonight (as I ridiculously hoped any hormone would have multiplied crazily during the day!) and both the clearest BFNs you will ever see, my imaginary symptoms have even dispappeared sad thanks for the advice on the super drug tests, will see if I can pick up a couple tomorrow! I suppose I have to wait until AF arrives to confirm for definite. Think I convinced myself i was on Monday #eejit

April13 Wed 29-May-13 18:49:32

BartBaby it's crazy eh? You know it's too early but you get all excited and then can't reason with yourself!! Fx for next week for you xxx

BartBaby Wed 29-May-13 20:05:14

Yes it certainly is crazy april even if i was upduffed it wouldnt show yet anyway. Ive just been using the internet cheapies (it worked fine with DS last time) as it would cost a fortune if i used the expensive ones all the time! Lol. If/when i get a positive one i'll double check it with a branded one. Ive seen on here that some people dont get a positive until at least 14dpo, so you are not off the bus yet! x

DisneyDiva87 Wed 29-May-13 20:25:16

I was feeling a bit bloated and off my food today at work, had myself convinced I'm pregnant. Now I'm spending my evening trying to reason myself out of this delusion before I start wasting my slim supply of pg tests - mental note I must buy more next time I'm at the shop.

Fingers crossed that you can still get your BFP BartBaby & April

barebranches Wed 29-May-13 22:31:12

oppps went out and got pissed... didnt intend to drink..... should i worty?

Thatssofunny Wed 29-May-13 23:00:10

barebranches I wouldn't worry too much, unless you are an alcoholic and get pissed all the time. Hope you had a good night. grin
I get rarely pissed, because DP doesn't drive...so I usually end up the "designated driver".

barebranches Wed 29-May-13 23:03:43

feel bad though. sad but it was half price cocktails... hopefully will be my last time for a while!

Ninunina Thu 30-May-13 06:22:56

All these people POAS is making me want to do it. It's way too early though... I'm only about 5 DPO! I also only have an old expired superdrug test left over from DD. Do you think it will still work? From my experience, the best tests are First Response and superdrug. The Internet cheapies and clear blue digital took longer to pick things up. I'm feeling really strange. .. have a constant feeling of nausea and a fulness feeling in my abdomen with all sorts of cramps. I remember getting nausea straight away with dd, but part of me thinks I'm imagining things (wishful thinking?)
Good luck to those POAS this morning.

SomeDaySoon74 Thu 30-May-13 06:57:08

Morning all! I've jumped on the early-testing bandwagon and, guess what, BFN!! blush Just wanted to keep you all company. Honest. 9dpo for me. Still hoping...
bare - don't worry about the cocktails. My consultant said not to worry about drinking whilst ttc, as long as you give up when you find out you're pg. hope you're not too hungover. grin

Hmm just had a dream affair with Matt Smith as Dr. Who, who knew I found him attractive but then who says no to Dr. Who? Off to China early tomorrow so no mn for nearly 2 weeks. At least when I get back I'll have got through a chunk of my tww. I EXPECT to see many BFP on the thread when I return. Good luck!

gillywillywoo Thu 30-May-13 07:39:12

Didn't get to dtd last night after coming back from the cinema... Was almost midnight and we were sooooo tired!!

Haven't dtd since Monday but this morning I finally got a positive OPK!!! Smiley face on the clearblue digi is like the best thing ever! Apart from a BFP!!! grinhaha

Lots of shagging to do now! grin

DisneyDiva87 Thu 30-May-13 08:23:21

Get to it Gilly!

FoxMulder Thu 30-May-13 08:28:55

Ooh, this is getting exciting now! Statistically speaking, some of us should be getting BFPs this weekend. And because it's my birthday on Sat, I think it should be me grin. Thought about POAS this morning, but was rather too knackered after that bottle of Prosecco I shared with DH last night to celebrate the last couple of days of being a young reckless 20 something. Prosecco on a school night; I'm such a badass! grin

DisneyDiva87 Thu 30-May-13 08:34:40

I think you should get a BFP on your birthday Fox It's my birthday next Sunday and that's when I'm hoping to get my BFP (since it's my birthday I think I should get it)

April13 Thu 30-May-13 08:36:49

i have a question for you all. I bought a BBTing the week and started charting. Obviously I can't see a pattern as I only have a few time points, but my temp does seem unusually low? I have posted them below. I think I may have been off with the first one, but have included it anyways smile I though your temp was meant to be high after ov and then dip when AF due before rising at ov again? Can anyone advise and help me out with my unhealthy obsession?

CD19 36.48
CD20 36.28
CD21 36.36
CD22 36.34
CD23 36.39
CD24 36.35

lindamagoo Thu 30-May-13 09:15:38

Hi ladies, room for a small one on ur bus? grin This is my 1st month TTC #3, day 17 of 30 day cycle. Don't hold out much hope as I'm 42 but I was 37 when I finally fell with ds #1 and 39 with ds #2 so u never know grin. I'm officially in the dreaded 2ww now and forgot how crazy this can make u hmm af due around June 13th, feels like a lifetime away x

gillywillywoo Thu 30-May-13 09:20:25

April13 those temps look spot on! Mine range from 36.1 to 36.5 before ovulation then go up to around 36.7 to 37.1 post ovulation smile

FoxMulder Thu 30-May-13 09:25:02

I'm a bit jealous of ScienceGeekGirl's dream about Matt Smith as Dr Who. I too have a bit of a crush on The Doctor.

gillywillywoo Thu 30-May-13 09:26:10

Updated whilst on the train squashed between people! grin

Happy for your smiley face gilly hopeful as the smiley is at a sensible time that your cycle is a normal length for you again.

Realised too that talking about dr who while having the screen name with geek in the title is probably cementing my nerd status. Oh well I embrace my inner geekhood

april those temps look like the same sort of temps I get pre ovulation. Do you think you have ovulated yet?

DisneyDiva87 Thu 30-May-13 10:03:56

Does your temp stay elevated if you are pregnant or does it drop and then rise again?

barebranches Thu 30-May-13 10:04:55

im a geek to science

get shagging gilly

im laying on the sofa feeling delicate. sad

ZolaBuddleia Thu 30-May-13 10:07:16

Most exciting, lots of POAS due from us ladies due at the start of the month. I feel like AF is on her way though, bitch.

Thatssofunny Thu 30-May-13 10:41:34

Congratulations on your smiley face, gilly. Have fun. grin

Your temps look much more normal than mine, April. I'm not sure whether I cheated a bit this morning. Took temp and got a 96.94 and thought "Stupid thermometer, don't be ridiculous!", so tried again and temp went to 97.64. Both of them are quite a jump from my 98.36 yesterday, although the second one is a bit more in line with what it should be. I'm only 6/7 dpo...
Does temp go down before af arrives?

Coffee1Sugar Thu 30-May-13 10:43:25

How do I add my bfp due date to the list?! It's 5th June I hope! grin

April13 Thu 30-May-13 10:47:36

Hi, yeah I ovulated on cd13/14 so they are post ovulation. AF should be due on Monday if I've had an unsuccessful month. I thought they were slightly low for post ovulation?

Thatssofunny Thu 30-May-13 10:58:53

April I guess everyone is different. They would be low for me, because my pre-ovulation ones barely seemed to drop below 97, my post-ovulation ones appear to be 97.5+. I'm only on my first cycle with the temping, though. Are yours always this low? Then it might be normal for you.

lol Coffee I am CD24 and I am also "preggozilla* smile I POAS too and got a BFN....I am hoping I am just a late hormone producerer and secretley preganant ;)

April13 Thu 30-May-13 12:05:19

Apologies for the multiple posts! I suppose I want to know is how soon does temp go down before AF arrives too ThatsSoFunny, if its a week before please God dont let that be true and let me have a glimmer of hope forthe next 4 days that the first temp I took may have been a true temp and I have doomsday approaching! I dont know my normal temps as I have just startted recording, I also dont know how reflective they are of 3 hours continuous rest....I get up for the loo aroud 4 am every morning like clockwork and up at 6 am for work thereafter! Sometimes if Iam really lucky I have a 2 am visit too!!!

Cakecrumbsinmybra Thu 30-May-13 12:13:00

Can I join in? Have just started TTC #3.... Started last month and then sods law, period was a few days late this week, which had me thinking....My initial reaction was "What have we done?"! Anyway, AF started Tuesday, so will now be waiting to start again next month. So next AF would be due around 25th June. 38 in a couple of weeks though, so it might not happen for me!

Cakecrumbsinmybra Thu 30-May-13 12:14:26

coffee and april, I am trying to be more relaxed about it this time round. Not buying any pg tests until I am literally retching over the toilet bowl....

Ok my fellow nutjobs wink come and talk some sense into me. I ov'd earlier than expected- around 9/10 days ago. I am taking a high dose of vitamin B complex for the first time as I was spotting for around a week before my period.

I feel like shite. Headache, backache, nausea, stomachache, tits hurt like a bugger grin but 100% feel like AF is on her way in my uterus- cramps and pain. However no bleeding yet. CM is yellow and creamy and there's loads of it.

Tested on Tues and Weds with cheapie tests (so 7 or 8dpo and 8 or 9 dpo) and of course- BFN.

I'm swinging between "I feel different this month I'm knocked up for sure" and "AF is on her way".

Someone come and shake me. I'm driving myself mental.

Although after having a look at the website barebranches mentioned, there are a few on there that look positive at only 9 and 10dpo so i fear thats me done for this month sad

I know damn google! Lol. Its so easy to look up every niggle, and theres so many different opinions on things, and so many possibilities what symptoms etc could be. I think we only take notice of what we want it to be. Or keep looking on a different site until that tells us what we want to hear!

I don't normally feel sick but who knows if I'm just imagining it grin
