Good luck all!

Treaclepie19 Mon 20-Jan-14 18:56:12

Hello again smile exciting times! I have to say I'm still having to tell myself AF is here :p It's already dwindling to nothing. Normally have 6/7 days bleeding and about 3 heavy days. So far had one day spotting, one day heavy-ish and today dwindling back to barely anything. All still happening before AF was due!

smorgasborgen Mon 20-Jan-14 19:36:56

hello all, ttc#1. cycle..god what is it..7? .1 mc two months ago. bfp due mid Feb sometime! x

trying t do the smep plan but seriously? doing this plan when u work shifts is crazy! on CD 5 and managed it once..

question; on my last period it was light for five days, Then two heavier days then over.. confused about what is CD 1? x xconfused confused

smorgasborgen Mon 20-Jan-14 19:38:05

treaclepie I had an early period as well. very strange indeed! wine

Treaclepie19 Mon 20-Jan-14 20:18:01

Hiya smile cycle day one is first day of AF.

I'm really confused... Keep thinking I am actually pg. Will test thurs when period was actually due.

toots123 Mon 20-Jan-14 21:38:51

Sounds v confusing!! Let us know how you get on.
Due to ov soon. I decided we should try the smep plan.
But last month we didnt dtd in the 2ww so we will keep goingat it in case ive confused my dates smile

sizethree Mon 20-Jan-14 21:48:09

threebee and treaclepie , I'm joining your surprise early AF gang as I'm 2 days early this month too. Strange as I used to be like clockwork but it means I get to keep you all company on this thread!

smorgasborden sorry for your loss but excited that you're on this thread as we're at the same stage! Mmc in Nov, 2 AFs since, desperate to make my DH a daddy with our 1st baby. This will only be second cycle of trying (after the mmc. Took us 5 cycles for that pregnancy).

Hello to bangonthedoor, toots and mrsmorrisontoo. Looking forward to settling into a few weeks of tip swapping, TMI and giggles! X

Treaclepie19 Mon 20-Jan-14 22:17:13

Will let you all know how I get on... Bleeding has nearly gone now. Currently 11 dpo so still holding on hope. Sorry I'm ruining our Feb thread just really confused.
Hello all and fx smile

noimagination80 Mon 20-Jan-14 22:56:24

Hey, ttc#1 cycle 5, bfp due 5th. Feb... I had the strange early af last month, so all going well the maths are right and this month will be the month.

toots123 Tue 21-Jan-14 07:15:24

Will you poad treacle? So weird!
We are getting geared up for a dtd marathon smile

Just waiting on a positive opk!

sizethree Tue 21-Jan-14 09:07:58

DTD marathon, love that phrase Toots123!

Treaclepie19 Tue 21-Jan-14 13:05:15

Bleeding has stopped today which means only 2 full days of bleeding instead of 4/5...
Yeah toots I will POAS on Thursday probably or Friday. As well as doing OPK... very odd :p

Going to start my OPK tomorow so I don't miss ov. Normally wouldn't be so worried but with this odd AF (if that's what it is) I'm not really sure when toe expect ovulation so want to make sure.

Hinoimagination smile

toots123 Tue 21-Jan-14 13:11:05

Yeah its all mad! Last month I ov'd on cd 11/12 and today is cd11 and no sign yet. .the joys huh...

Treaclepie19 Tue 21-Jan-14 13:14:04

Definitely the joys! Worst part for me I think is that I'm stupidly holding on to this idea that I've had odd implantation bleeding rather than AF.

DH is now convinced also as I keep going on about it. He actually text me earlier asking if there was any bleeding still and if I was pg :P
Then said not long til we can test.
Its hard to be sensible when he's encouraging me!

twiglet2 Tue 21-Jan-14 14:30:26

Hi everyone,

I'm new on here - this is my first post. I got married in July, and came off the pill in November. Had my withdrawal bleed then af just before christmas, so this is our second month of ttc, hoping for a bfp on valentines day...

ToffeeJungle Tue 21-Jan-14 16:18:45

Hi all- again!

Ttc #2 - cycle 2 - bfp due 4th Feb (I think?)

Last cycle was longer than expected (32 days when I was presuming 28) so will see how this one pans out. Have decided to dtd at least every other day regardless so will see how it goes - fingers crossed!

Treaclepie19 Tue 21-Jan-14 16:25:03

Hi twiglet and toffee smile

Good luck!

smorgasborgen Tue 21-Jan-14 16:28:35

size three we have pretty much the same stats!
finding it hard to work out when period will be as my last AF was eight days of strangeness! trying t do smep plan but going too well so far! xhmm

Catwoman4981 Tue 21-Jan-14 16:50:11

I will be testing around the 8th Feb

Ovulating today so keeping everything crossed.

TTC baby number 4

Jeggie Tue 21-Jan-14 17:04:02

Hi all can I join? Ttc #2 cycle #2. Af due 12 feb although was 5 days late last month so who knows!

noimagination80 Tue 21-Jan-14 19:29:53

Bangonthedoor, we seem to have the same cycle, how's the wait going for you at the moment?

How's it going Treaclepie? My DH started a conversation about who we would tell if we were last night. I wanted to punch him in the face, grin The last thing my messed up, obsessed mind needs is an enabler to my crazy!!!

Welcome Jeggie smile

Treaclepie19 Tue 21-Jan-14 19:37:53

I'm just frustrated :p Trying to tell myself it is definitely AF but then google gives me hope haha. Going to distract myself by starting my OPK tomorrow.

Haha aww, its nice when DH's are excited though smile

noimagination its killing me already and its only just begun! I dont think we timed our DTD mission great this cycle so i dont think our chances are awfully high anyway but only time will tell!

When do you think you'll poas??

noimagination80 Wed 22-Jan-14 18:39:20

Amazing how quickly it becomes an obsession right!!!

I think if I can hold out I will poas on the 3rd.... wink. What about you?

Treaclepie19 Wed 22-Jan-14 21:45:28

Well decided to just move on from this odd AF and focus on impending DTD marathon :P

Hope everyone is ok smile

Well I'm thinking...the 6th?! I'm going to try and be strong! Just hate the disappointment! I think I'd rather be disappointed with AF than a BFN...

Ahh this 2ww is killing me! So inpatient anyway but this is on a whole different level! If only google didn't exist....

Treaclepie19 Fri 24-Jan-14 17:53:08

Bangonthedoor I know the feeling! I'm impatient just waiting for a positive OPK!

Trying to focus on losing weight so its keeping my mind busy smile

Treaclepie19 Sat 25-Jan-14 08:57:47


Treaclepie19 Sat 25-Jan-14 08:59:35

Argh! Stupid phone.
My cycle really has changed :/ last nonth I got a flashing smiley opk at 5 days after AF finished.
Woke up this morning expecting negative opk and its flashing smiley! 2 days after AF :/
Glad we decided yo start dtd early!

Fingers crossed for you treacle xx

Well...last night I had a dream that I got my bfp 8dpo... I'm so hoping this comes true! When I had DD and I took her to get weighed for the first time since having her, the night before I dreamt that I took her and she weighed 10lb 2oz. The next day I took her and what did she weigh? 10lb 2oz! Maybe this is the same thing?!?

I'm so tempted to start testing even though I know in my head it's way too early!

ToffeeJungle Mon 27-Jan-14 14:24:33

How's everyone doing?

I'm not really sure where I am in my cycle as last time it wasn't what I thought (turned into a 32 day cycle when I was expecting a 28 day one) so am trying not to think about the testing bit and just focussing on dtd! If I can I'm just going to wait and see if AF turns up (presumably next week sometime) and just see what happens from there... well best intentions an'all that! I'll probably be POAS tomorrow!!!!!

toots123 Mon 27-Jan-14 16:48:25

Haha toffee dont poas too soon!! Im trying the not think about it tactic. I'll report back when if I cave in!

I think I ov'd on Thursday so im around 4dpo (bit confused about if ovulation has happened tho) so im trying my hardest not to test until valentines day though. We shall see haha

noimagination80 Mon 27-Jan-14 19:20:33

How's it all good everyone?

Not much to report here, 7/8dpo, not feeling anything different. Had a little bit of cramping at 4d &5po. Don't think we will see a bfp this month..tho still got a week to drive myself crazy.

We tried preseed this month, dh not a fan...anyone else used it before?

Don't you hate how crazy it makes you noimagination I'm the same and I wish it didn't! Don't write anything off until AF shows up grin

I've come down with a sore throat and a stuffy nose today (around 8dpo) just woke up this morning and there it was. I suppose it's too early to have symptoms like this isn't it?! Probably more to do with the fact I was walking around London all and out of shops and tube stations hmm

I have experienced cramping but can't really remember what days and not quite sure I would have noticed it if not ttc.

How's everyone distracting themselves from the 2ww?!

Treaclepie19 Mon 27-Jan-14 21:35:48

I've missed so much!
I'm not in the 2ww at the mo. Got a solid smiley this morning grin

toots123 Tue 28-Jan-14 07:07:39

Im trying not to think about it and not symptom spot. Doing finr so far but it's early days. I wont class myself late until 16th feb but im sure I'll have peed on loads of sticks by then!!!!! smile

Enjoy dtd treacle smile

Shardlake Tue 28-Jan-14 10:24:09

Hello! can I join? TTC#2 Cycle no. 4. BFP due about 11th Feb. Just coming to the end of our DTD marathon! good luck everyone smile I think October is a pretty cool month for a birthday.

Treaclepie19 Tue 28-Jan-14 12:38:33

Haha thanks toots smile
Hi shardlake smile
I agree about October! Halloween babies!!!

I stupidly poas this morning. Obviously a bfn!! I keep miscalculating but by looking at my dates again im pretty sure im about 8dpo today so far too early but couldnt help myself!! Need my hands to be tied!

ToffeeJungle Wed 29-Jan-14 15:09:12

Quick question ladies - is thick cervical mucus a good sign for pregnancy or not?
I've had quite a bit of discharge (sorry TMI) but I always thought that thick white gloopy type mucus happened around ovulation? Though I'm on day 25 of my cycle so doubt I'm ovulating and just wondered if it had any significance???

ToffeeJungle Wed 29-Jan-14 15:10:43

Sorry posted too soon - was meant to say thanks!!!

Also, Bangonthedoor I can completely understand you poas! The wait is torture and you just can't help it can you???!! I had to resist buying pregancy tests whilst in Boots earlier otherwise I'd be doing the same!!

noimagination80 Wed 29-Jan-14 21:05:14

Hey all,

ToffeeJungle, i had thicker white cm on Friday, that would have been day 17, not really had it before and only lasted a day. I tend to get clear, think egg white type cm the day before I ov.

Bangonthedoor....I did this same this evening blush bfn of course, checked the calendar again today and it's day 8........Can this take any longer!

ToffeeJungle, have fun with the dtd!

Nice to hear updates and know that im not the only poas addict.

I know its too early to experience symptoms and im trying so hard not to symptom spot!! Just humour me wink

Ive been sooo emotional last couple of days as well as suffering from this cold still. I cried earlier when i booked tickets for me and dd to see in the night garden live...ok i didnt just cry, i sobbed at the thought of how much shes going to love it. How ridiculous?! But it could just be my emotions around ttc as oppose to a

Argh...hurry up next week!!

toffeejungle excessive cm is always a good sign!! But annoyingly can just be a normal part of your cycle. Is it normal for you at this stage? When are u due to test?

ToffeeJungle Thu 30-Jan-14 09:35:53

Hmm... not sure about the CM then - I've been searching on the web and just seem to get conflicting info! Some say thick CM is a sign of ovulation, some say it's a sign of pregnancy and some say it's just part of the normal menstrual cycle and probably means you're NOT pregnant???!!!
I'm not sure what is 'normal' for me either, I've never really monitored my CM and am still not sure of the difference between 'fertile' CM, EWCM, any other sort of CM?!
Saying that, I think I remember last cycle asking whether or not thick CM was a good sign (as I had it then too) and obviously wasn't pregnant so I'm not hopeful... I don't 'feel' pregnant...

I think AF is due around 5th Feb so I'm just going to hold out until then and if AF doesn't arrive I'll test on 6th Feb. I havent got any pregnancy tests at home so I can't even be tempted to poas (just need to maintain the willpower and not go out and buy any!!)
I just think if I'm pregnant I'll find out next week with or without poas - plus can't keep affording to buy them!

When is everyone else thinking of testing?

toots123 Thu 30-Jan-14 13:02:51

I cant wait tbh! Two cheap tests left so might try one tomorrow (9dpo so no chance!) If not will wait till Monday or Tuesday
dh suggested we wait until a week on Saturday. Has he just met me?!

Let us know how you get on toots!

I'm also due around the 5th. I poas AGAIN today!! Of course bfn. I've got 3 left....I'm hoping to hold out until Monday but will probably just do one Saturday, Monday then wait to see if AF shows up or not before I do the 3rd.

I've come out in spots today - something i experienced with dd but also something I get a few days before AF due. Why do preg symptoms and AF symptoms have to be identical?!

noimagination80 Thu 30-Jan-14 20:17:52

Hey all, yay 3 of us in the same boat, here's to holding out until at least Monday.....

Bangonthedoor, it sounds promising. I am assuming your not prone to sudden mood swings during your cycle? I have started getting spots on my chest, very odd, But I still don't feel any different. I have my fingers crossed for you grin

ToffeeJungle, It's so confusing right, I hate Google. On the plus I don't think I have ever known my body as well as I do now...something's I would rather not have discovered.

How are you feeling noimagination?

No, usually I get angry and stroppy about a week before AF due which is about now. I just tend to shout at DP an awful lot but never an emotional wreck. I broke down again today over something silly! I'm trying to stay positive, aren't we all?!

I don't have the 'pregnant feeling' either but is there even such a thing? It seems like Mother Nature will do exactly what she wants when she wants!

Still have fingers crossed for you all and here's to our October babies!

Treaclepie19 Thu 30-Jan-14 20:44:24

Good luck everyone!!!
I tried to post earlier but don't seem to be able to on my phone confused
I'm assuming I'm now in the 2ww as got a fixed smiley on tuesday.

Had a terrible week at work and my best friend sent me a pic of her 12 week scan earlier so very emotional. Feel like AF is coming which is a bit odd! Must be ov pains? I don't know.

Anyway good luck with all the POAS-ing hehe smile

noimagination80 Thu 30-Jan-14 20:47:22

Yeah, I know what you mean I don't know what to expect, I have stopped looking things up and trying to just go with it.

I'm knacked, having trouble sleeping and have lost my appetite, but that I am putting down to stress and 12hour days at work...Not the best time to be ttc, but hey when is hmm

ToffeeJungle Thu 30-Jan-14 21:57:52

I agree that the symptoms for AF and early pregnancy are annoyingly similar! I've had some slight period pain type cramps today plus am really tired but reckon it is just AF and a hard day at work!!
I should stop reading up on stuff though, it's all a bit contradictory and really does help me or change anything! Just hope some bfp's are around the corner for us all! smile

ToffeeJungle Thu 30-Jan-14 21:59:55

*does not help me!

Shardlake Fri 31-Jan-14 02:37:08

Hi, I'm going to try and avoid POAS until at least 9th Feb. Hopefully I actually get a chance this time as last cycle AF came 2 days early! Think I am only about 5 days post ov at the moment. I'm also feeling a bit emotional and spotty but surely too early for symptoms for me. Fingers crossed for everyone!

ToffeeJungle Fri 31-Jan-14 09:39:36

Well am definitely feeling 'mentrual' today, ugh!
In fact I feel very similar to this time last month, when I got a bfn sad
Though at least this time round I know not to get my hopes up, waste time poas, and that although some of the symptoms could suggest pregnancy (ie. feeling sick, tired, bit of a cold, cramps) they also could just suggest AF is on the way.
Gosh tricky business this baby making lark!

noimagination80 Fri 31-Jan-14 11:42:55

Hey ladies, just got a bfp, had to tell someone as I'm freaking out here, it's still early days shock

smorgasborgen Fri 31-Jan-14 12:19:07

congratulations! did u follow a specific plan? xsmile

smorgasborgen Fri 31-Jan-14 12:22:36

toffee jungle, sorry for your menstrualness! such a crap feeling! is it me or does the months since trying t conceive get longer and longer! you'll get there x

ToffeeJungle Fri 31-Jan-14 12:27:31

noimagination CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! That's such good news!! What's your secret???! wink

And thanks smorgasborgen, it is a bit crap though still no AF yet so I guess there is still a little bit of hope (just trying not to think about it too much like I did last month and end up getting into a bit of a tizz about it all!!)

How's everyone else doing?

Congrats noimagination!!!! Such fab news!! How are you feeling??

I poas today...completely forgot what I said yesterday and was a bfn. I feel like the window is closing now sad

I'm going to test again Monday

noimagination just out of interest are you experiencing sore boobs? It's just that was prominent with dd And I don't seem to be feeling that at the moment. Just want to know that I'm not out the game yet?!

noimagination80 Fri 31-Jan-14 15:20:50

Hey all, I feel a little tender in the lower abdomen, felt a little sick to the stomach all day, but nothing major.

Boobs are fine, but they are massive and don't have much sensations in them on the best of days......

I have a feeling my early af last week might have been a positive.

We used preseed once this month, we got dtd every other day from my 2nd +ov day. Dh was out the first day and came home drunk, not best pleased x

ToffeeJungle Fri 31-Jan-14 16:17:04

Do you think period type pains could be a sign of early pregnancy? <desperate!>

noimagination80 Fri 31-Jan-14 18:12:44

Thank you everyone, the shock has worn off now. Was convinced there was no way this month. Only poas out of habit....

toffee they are so similar, it's hard to tell. I am going to keep testing through the weekend, af not due until Wednesday so anything could happen.

Just got home and poas again, (different brand) and it's come back as bfn.

Will you test again in the morning noimagination? How is DH?!

Im feeling a bit funny this evening...funny taste in mouth, very mild cramping and a bit sicky. But im sure this is nothing i would notice unless ttc!! Been driving me mad tonight! Definitely going to hold out until monday but im just not sure how im going to get through the next 2 days.

The 2 things giving me a feeling that im out this month is the perfectly non painful boobs and no excess cm infact im pretty much bone dry!! Might have to google the cm thing again...

rambini Fri 31-Jan-14 22:25:32

BFP/AF due 12th Feb. Feels like an eternity to wait! Was so sure I wouldn't go all crazy over this baby-making lark...SO hasn't happened! Feel like an obsessive nut job!! How can 14 days feel like such a long time?!

Fingers crossed for you rambini!

It is such a long time to wait! Not at all fair really!

How are you feeling so far?

rambini Sat 01-Feb-14 08:11:52

Erm, not that different to be honest. My boobs are a bit sore but thats more likely to be because I keep prodding them to see if they are sore! Had some unusual cramping the last couple of days, but it is so easy to talk yourself into having every symptom under the sun when TTC!
How about you?

toots123 Sat 01-Feb-14 08:38:07

Im still dying to test but doing well at keeping my obsession to a minimum. Af isnt due for a couple of weeks but might still poas next week! Haha

When af turns up I'll order the cb ovulation tests but since they aren't cheap I don't want to order them until af is deff here. Might just order some anyways tho!

smorgasborgen Sat 01-Feb-14 19:05:20

I think I'll be poas on the fifteenth....well depending, I'm in positive opk confusion hell! hmm

So I'm having some cramping today and it's definitely different to pre AF cramps and definitely not constipation...which I suffer from a lot blush so I'm hoping this is a good sign?!

I'm around 11dpo today and still going to wait until Monday to poas - my last internet cheapie.

How's everyone else doing?

smorgasborgen Sat 01-Feb-14 19:42:31

sounds promising! smile

Treaclepie19 Sat 01-Feb-14 19:57:38

Congrats noimagination!!! smile

I am obsessing! Around 4dpo at the moment...
Just found this implantation calculator... Eek :p

Great link treaclepie! Already obsessing over it wink

Treaclepie19 Sat 01-Feb-14 20:12:18

Haha thanks! Yeah. Me too :p
If I ovulated when my opk said then according to that it should be implanting Thursday!!! Fingers crossed! smile

ToffeeJungle Sun 02-Feb-14 09:49:51

So I still haven't poas and still not trying to get too hopeful but -despite previously saying I felt more menstrual than pregnant the feelings have changed a little bit and I do feel different to how I did this time last cycle (if that makes sense?!).
I have been having very vivid dreams the last few nights and have cold like symptoms (mainly bunged nose) both of which can be early pregnancy symptoms, eek!
AF not due until around 5th so going to hold out til then before testing but am feeling a little more optimistic (could be setting myself up for a fall I know!).
Fingers crossed for bfp's!!

Ahh I feel exactly the same toffee! It's strange isn't it, I started to feel different from yesterday. I'm trying not to get my hopes up but I do feel different. Had another bfp dream too!

How many dpo are you toffee? I'm around 12 today and going to test tomorrow which will be 13dpo. How are you going to hold out until weds?!

Good luck to you and I have my fingers crossed for us all!

How are you doing noimagination?

ToffeeJungle Sun 02-Feb-14 12:45:28

Thanks bangonthedoor, exciting times (maybe?!)

I think Im 15dpo though never know exactly when Im ovulating (we've just been dtd every other day since I finished my last period!).

noimagination when are you going to test again?
And what about you toots and treacle?

Treaclepie19 Sun 02-Feb-14 16:44:37

I'm only 5/6dpo so trying not to test til at least 8dpo 10dpo 14dpo :p

When will you test toffee?

nicx240187 Sun 02-Feb-14 17:23:56

Well I'm due Tues. So if nothing arrives I shall test Thurs.
I'm not having bfp dreams but 2 women at hubby's work have dreamt if it for me this week lol.
I'm shattered and very thirsty this week and had mild cramping Thurs eve. (But no AF yet)
Keeping everything crossed.
Good luck all

noimagination80 Sun 02-Feb-14 18:50:17

Hey all,

Well, 5 out of 6 test's are saying bfp.....ekk! Will try and get a doctors appointment for this week to make sure everything is ok!! af not due until Wednesday, will let you know if anything comes!!!

bangonthedoor DH is excited, but trying to not count all our chickens yet wink. Will you test again on Monday? How are you feeling?

Toffee Hows it going? How are you feeling?

Treacle Thanks for the link, i think i must have implanted earlier than i thought......Good luck for this Thursday!

I'm still not feeling massively different, I have caught dh's cold, and been really tired. Not got much of an appetite still, super thirsty all the time and feel a little sick sometimes but nothing over the top.

Cramping has stopped, for the most part, the odd cramp from time to time.

New symptom, the odd bout of gas.....blush

All the best for everyone this week!

Ahh I'm so excited for you and DH noimagination!! you all know the plan was to test tomorrow but I kind of gave in and poas this afternoon hmm bfn. So I have no more tests therefore not going to buy another unless AF doesn't show. I really really hope she doesn't show!! Just going to try and keep busy the next few days smile

Ooh just something else to bras have become far too small in the last few days. I've got quite very big boobs anyway and they are just bulging out...hoping its a sign!

noimagination80 Sun 02-Feb-14 20:02:46

Best of luck bangonthedoor, I will be crossing everything for you!

Treaclepie19 Sun 02-Feb-14 20:04:54

Eeek good luck at the doctors noimagination
Thank you smile Fingers crossed for implantation haha smile

I think I'm feeling pre AF cramps! Due weds so I suppose it's not over until then.

nicx240187 Tue 04-Feb-14 21:31:56

AF was due today and no sign. If there is no sign before Thurs I'll poas then.
How's everyone else?

Treaclepie19 Tue 04-Feb-14 22:04:06

How are we all doing???

ToffeeJungle Tue 04-Feb-14 22:13:59

Hey all!
Well still no sign of AF, due tomorrow but dare I say it I 'feel' pregnant!?!
Can't explain it though have had some possible symptoms including very vivid dreams, slight cramping and change in appetite.
Could all be in my head I know but I have now bought a pregnancy test and if AF doesn't show tomorrow I'll test Thursday morning (eek!).

How is everyone else doing?

Treaclepie19 Tue 04-Feb-14 22:21:42

Eeeek fingers crossed toffee!!! smile

Fingers crossed for you toffee!

AF due today and if I'm honest with myself i feel quite AF like. Although I've just had a thought I've got no tampons or pads for if/when she arrives.....that's how my positivity started!

Will let you all know how I get on.

toots123 Wed 05-Feb-14 06:55:43

Hi all!
how's everyone doing?

im now 3dpo so wont test until next friday at the earliest. Ran out of amazon cheapies which is probably a good thing as I was a poas addict!! clockwork AF has arrived. Boo! Oh well, I'm going to get pissed and try again!

bang sorry to hear that, that's rubbish. Though at least you know where you stand and can start trying again soon. Enjoy the beverages tonight and fingers crossed for the next cycle!

nicx240187 Wed 05-Feb-14 17:40:14

Still no af. Keeping fingers crossed. 2days late. Hanging on before poas.

Thanks toffee!

Good luck nic! How are you staying so strong and not poas?!

noimagination80 Wed 05-Feb-14 19:02:38

bangthedoor Heres to next month, and enjoy the vino tonight!

Toffee Any news?

How's everyone going?

Been to the doctor and it's official, due 15th Oct all going well....still not really sunk in. All symptoms vanished yesterday.

Great news noimagination!

DD never really sunk in until she was 6 months old grin enjoy your pregnancy, wishing you a happy and healthy one. Relax and enjoy it thanks

nicx240187 Wed 05-Feb-14 19:24:40

Trying to wait as I don't think I'll believe it.
Had a few problems in the past (mc x3) so if its true I'll be so scared just in case.
Think it's kind of what I dont know won't hurt me.
Will try fmu tomorrow I think

ToffeeJungle Wed 05-Feb-14 19:52:10

Wow noimagination that is so exciting! A due date must make it even more real??!!

Good luck nic, let us know how you get on.

Im definitely testing tomorrow morning, eek! AF due today and not made an appearance so fingers crossed!

nicx240187 Thu 06-Feb-14 07:54:54

Well. Still no af making me 3 days late. With an extreme thirst.
Done a poas with fmu and bfn sad

ToffeeJungle Thu 06-Feb-14 12:11:11

I tested this morning and.... BFP!!!! grin

Can't quite believe it!! DH was at home too when I tested so we found out at exactly the same time which was lovely - as was his response of 'YES!' <fist pump>!! smile

Worked out my due date based on 40 weeks after the first day of my last period and it is 11th October!

Obviously a long way to go and won't be telling anyone in RL until after the 12 weeks scan just to make sure everything is as it should be but am very very very happy!! grin

ToffeeJungle Thu 06-Feb-14 12:13:02

Hmm nic that sounds confusing?! I guess all you can do is ttest again in a day or 2 if AF still hasn't shown?
So hard not knowing where you stand though huh? Hope you get your bfp soon.

How is everyone else doing? Toots? Treacle?

nicx240187 Thu 06-Feb-14 12:32:04

Congrats toffee smile

ToffeeJungle Thu 06-Feb-14 12:33:00

Thanks nic! smile

Treaclepie19 Thu 06-Feb-14 18:10:38

Oooohh congrats toffee!!! smile

I'm around 9/10dpo so trying not to test til monday at least smile Dont feel different... Been so busy at work I have stopped symptom spotting!

noimagination80 Thu 06-Feb-14 18:28:15

Wicked news toffee! So pleased for you, I had a feeling it would be. How are you feeling? Dh pointed to his groin and proclaimed he was the man when we found out. It was magical.... hmm

Nic, that is super frustrating, keep us posted.

Treacle, good luck for Monday.

I still don't believe it's happening and it's such a long wait until we have our first scan,

Treaclepie19 Thu 06-Feb-14 18:56:31

Thank you noimagination smile
Hope it all sinks in for you soon!

ToffeeJungle Fri 07-Feb-14 13:03:40

Thanks all! smile

Not sure how I feel really -happy, excited, anxious, sick, tired! Mainly lucky I'd say! smile

How is everyone else doing?

smorgasborgen Fri 07-Feb-14 17:05:58

hi toffee, did u have any spotting ? I'm having bouts of extreme emotional mess and spotting! ( not too much, but still) I don't want t give up hope! due on around the fifteen the sixteenth..

ToffeeJungle Fri 07-Feb-14 18:06:38

Hi smorgasborgen, no I didn't have any spotting.
The first real symptom for me was very vivid &strange dreams!
I felt a bit pre-menstrual, like period type pains but in a way just felt different and I kind of knew (hoped) I was pregnant.
Now I just feel sick and have the odd cramp.
Have had a really bunged up nose / cold too!
Fingers crossed for you!

nicx240187 Sat 08-Feb-14 08:59:39

Well that's me out, af decided to turn up today.
Roll on next month. X

ToffeeJungle Sun 09-Feb-14 07:56:38

Aw nicx sorry to hear that.
Fingers crossed for next time!

Helen87 Sun 09-Feb-14 08:10:42

Hi everyone, can I join please?! bfp/ af due towards the end of next week and the wait is starting to get to me now! Ttc 1, cycle 2 after coming off the pill in october.

Congratulations to all the bfps smile Have any of you tested early or are you being good and waiting for af?!

smorgasborgen Mon 10-Feb-14 17:49:00

hi Helen! going t wait till Fri I think.. I'm quite good at not testing early as I only get worried about chemical pregnancies!
having brown spotting at the moment.. 10dpo so not feeling too hopefully! roll on Friday! x

mylittlesunshine Mon 10-Feb-14 18:10:47

Hi everyone can I join too please? We are on cycle 6 and AF is due Friday, really hoping for a Bfp this time, I definitely feel different but we will see!

Congratulations to all the Bfp

smorgasborgen Mon 10-Feb-14 18:22:20

hello! how are u feeling? I'm due Fri as well!!! grin

Helen87 Mon 10-Feb-14 18:26:17

Hey! all 3 of us due on Friday, odds are one of us gets lucky at least I think!

Yeah, I'm the same, I'd be gutted if I had a chemical so couldn't risk the chance.

How do you feel different this time?

I don't really know what's normal and what's different for me because I've been on the pill for so long. It's hard but I suppose on the plus side it stops the symptom spotting!

ToffeeJungle Mon 10-Feb-14 18:31:43

Ooh that's exciting about a potential 3 bfp's on Friday! Fingers crossed for you all! smile

Helen87 Mon 10-Feb-14 18:49:27

Thank you smile smile I really hope it's a massive lucky month! Have you had your bfp toffee?

Helen87 Mon 10-Feb-14 18:49:58

Oh sorry of course you have. How are you feeling?

ToffeeJungle Mon 10-Feb-14 19:01:58

Yes, Im currently 5 + 2 weeks today! smile
Seems such early days still but feeling positive!
Also feeling quite tired and sick but I kind of like that as it makes me feel pregnant!!
Can't wait until the 12 weeks scan so then we can start telling everyone!
Exciting times!!

mylittlesunshine Mon 10-Feb-14 19:10:26

Every month in the week leading up to AF I get really moody and my tummy goes very swollen. This time I feel extremely queasy everyday, I'm off my food as things are tasting funny, smells are making me feel sick. So I am really hoping its pregnancy could be a bug though

Fingers crossed for us all!

Helen87 Mon 10-Feb-14 19:15:48

This might be really thick, but why do people give a number of weeks with the + a number at the end?!

Yeah I've had friends say that as well, must be hard to believe it when you don't feel anything! Have you told anyone?

Well that sounds promising so fingers crossed for you. Have you got your test ready?!

mylittlesunshine Mon 10-Feb-14 19:18:42

I need to buy tests don't have any, AF has been like clockwork each month and i didn't want to have them in the house as I will test early, I've no patience!

Helen87 Mon 10-Feb-14 19:34:22

Yeah that's a really good idea. I bought loads of ebay cheapies because it took so long for me to have a period the doctor recommended I keep testing to be sure. I have been pretty good with not using them though. Didn't POAS once last month and haven't so far this month either! How long have you been trying for?

noimagination80 Mon 10-Feb-14 20:31:33

Hi all, how's everyone doing?

looks like it's going to be an anxious/exciting week! wink

Toffee How have you been this week, have you got a date for you 11-13 week scan?

Treacle How are you doing, did you test today or have you been able to resist?

Toots How are you feeling, are you still waiting to test until Friday?

Bngonthedoor How's it going?

Treaclepie19 Mon 10-Feb-14 20:35:27

I've tested sad bfn on a frer.
13dpo today according to opk. My app says af not due til 15th though so unsure.
Think I'm out this month.
Keep thinking maybe i ovulated later than opk said and actually back to a 28 day cycle. If af isnt here tomorrow i will be very confused.

noimagination80 Mon 10-Feb-14 20:50:17

So confusing, what cycles have you been having, what ttc cycle are you on?

Your not out until AF arrives (or doesn't) x

littlemisswine Mon 10-Feb-14 20:52:21

helen the + is how many days

Helen87 Mon 10-Feb-14 21:12:09

Ah thanks for that, pretty obvious when you think about it blushblushblush!!

Treaclepie19 Mon 10-Feb-14 21:16:12

My cycles every month have been 28/29 days but last month it was 24 days. Completely out of the blue.
TTC cycle 2 properly trying and cycle 5 not trying but not preventing.

noimagination80 Mon 10-Feb-14 21:38:00

Did you have the odd early af last month?

Who would have guessed this whole ttc stuff could be so draining.

Treaclepie19 Mon 10-Feb-14 21:43:05

Yeah the early af was last month.
I know! Its a complete rollercoaster.

Helen87 Tue 11-Feb-14 09:04:32

I really have no idea what causes cycles to all of a sudden just change, but it's not helpful when ttc at all is it!

Treacle- when are you going to test again?

Treaclepie19 Tue 11-Feb-14 12:50:40

I know, its so annoying!
Tested this morning. Bfn. No af yet.

Helen87 Tue 11-Feb-14 12:55:55

Booo rubbish. Are you going to keep testing daily until bfp or af?

Treaclepie19 Tue 11-Feb-14 13:14:28

Yep definitely. I shouldnt though. These internet cheapies are driving me mad. Had an evap line at. 7dpo, 10dpo i think it was and then again today.
Todays was bfn this morning and now 6 hours later theres a pale line. Grr! Giving me false hope.

Helen87 Tue 11-Feb-14 13:45:01

Oh that's really weird isn't it. I've never seen anything like that. Are you sacking off the cheapies for a bit now then?

Treaclepie19 Tue 11-Feb-14 15:39:06

I think so. Will use them til i get af or not then next month ill just have to wait and use first response.

mylittlesunshine Tue 11-Feb-14 16:12:08

I nipped out at lunchtime today and picked up a first response, AF is due Friday so I will do my best to wait until then but I can't promise

Helen87 Tue 11-Feb-14 16:23:14

When are first response tests supposed to work from?!

mylittlesunshine Tue 11-Feb-14 16:25:52

Says on the box it can detect it 6 days early but I doubt that's accurate I will need to read the leaflet and see, think I might do one tomorrow

Helen87 Wed 12-Feb-14 07:45:35

Did you do a test?!!

mylittlesunshine Wed 12-Feb-14 07:56:58

Yeah bfn, shouldn't have done it early. Never mind AF should arrive Fri, if not I'll test again

Helen87 Wed 12-Feb-14 08:15:20

Yeah. Not too long to wait now. Any af symptoms?

mylittlesunshine Wed 12-Feb-14 08:23:53

Slight cramping last night but not like normal, just small twinges. I'm normally very moody and bloated by now but I'm not yet. Not got too long to wait, this 2ww has been a shocker.

Helen87 Wed 12-Feb-14 13:17:25

Yeah I know. Cant wait for it to be over. Really nervous every time I go to the loo. You testing friday?

mylittlesunshine Wed 12-Feb-14 16:16:25

If AF isn't here then yeah I'll test again on Friday, keeping everything crossed for all of us

Helen87 Wed 12-Feb-14 16:24:43

Me too. Keep me updated. I'm so nervous at the minute!

Treaclepie19 Wed 12-Feb-14 20:50:01

Limbo land here. No af. Bfn still. 15dpo.

littlemisswine Wed 12-Feb-14 21:08:27

what tests are you usung treacle?

Helen87 Wed 12-Feb-14 21:21:31

Did you use opks or going off rough ovulation date?

Treaclepie19 Wed 12-Feb-14 21:24:25

I'm using one step 10miu internet cheapies. Did use a frer though and that was negative too.

I used opks so going off that.

Helen87 Wed 12-Feb-14 21:50:04

Ah right. What do you think is going on then?

Treaclepie19 Wed 12-Feb-14 22:04:52

I haven't a clue! Haha.
I think its probably just my af is going back to normal length.

Obviously hoping I'm prrgnant and just haven't got enough hcg yet smile

smorgasborgen Wed 12-Feb-14 22:47:13

I've had four days of very light t light bleeding. not like me at all.too long for implantation bleed I know but still strange.confused

smorgasborgen Thu 13-Feb-14 11:07:25

bloody full tidal witch over night! coinciding with thunder clap and lightning!!! shock

Helen87 Thu 13-Feb-14 12:03:15

Booo what a witch! What cycle are you on now?

Anyone poas yet?!

smorgasborgen Thu 13-Feb-14 14:56:46


Helen87 Thu 13-Feb-14 16:06:35

Are you trying for your first?

Treaclepie19 Thu 13-Feb-14 22:30:14

Still in limbo here! Good luck everyone smile

Treaclepie19 Thu 13-Feb-14 22:31:21

And sorry af got you smorgasborgen sad

smorgasborgen Thu 13-Feb-14 23:39:21

yeah it will be our first.
I'm a bridesmaid at my best friends wedding in Nov so feel I shouldn't try next month but would be so weird not t try! blush

Helen87 Fri 14-Feb-14 07:08:17

Ooh what are you going to do?!

I hate limbo land. I'm dreading getting a bfn tomorrow and still no signs of AF. Fingers crossed for the biggest fattest positive for us all!

smorgasborgen Fri 14-Feb-14 11:55:50

good luck !

I would feel really bad for her if I got prego but she has four others...
I would hate it t miss it but ..I can't imagine using protection! I think what I will do is not use opks and not actively try. a more easier pace. that way I feel like its on it a conscious decision! if that makes sense! hmm

smorgasborgen Fri 14-Feb-14 11:57:07

it bloody doesn't make sense, dam predictive test!! I meant if it happens it happens.x

ToffeeJungle Fri 14-Feb-14 12:08:58

Hi all, just catching up on everything!
Sorry to hear of some AF arrivals and sorry to hear some of you are still in confusion land - so tricky all this stuff huh?!

noimagination I haven't got a date for the scan yet - I haven't actually been to the docs / midwife yet! Think I'll go within the next couple of weeks (just finding the time really!).
Am feeling ok though - not too many symptoms, just a bit more tired and the odd feelings of nausea. I kind of like that though as it makes me feel pregnant!!

How are things with you?

And everyone else?

Helen87 Fri 14-Feb-14 15:53:49

Yeah sounds like a good plan. You just know you'll end up getting pregnant using the 'relaxed ' method though! Either way I think you just need to carry on with your life. You can't put it in hold because of what ifs!

I've heard other people say they like the odd symptom so they know that they're pregnant!

Seems like I've survived official AF due day and will be testing in the morning. Unless she turns up over night of course. Anyone else an early riser or will we be testing all throughout the morning?!

threebee Fri 14-Feb-14 16:07:59

Just checking in to say AF arrived today as expected. sad

Good luck to everyone still waiting to test!

Helen87 Sat 15-Feb-14 02:27:38

Sorry to hear that, rubbish sad thanks for the good luck smile

Helen87 Sat 15-Feb-14 07:27:06

bfn. good luck to everyone else!

Sparkle9 Sat 15-Feb-14 08:36:16

Possible BFP. FR test on 10dpo (when my AF usually arrives). Very feint line within the 3mins. One year TTC #1 and I've never had a positive before. Long cycles and short luteal phase.

littlemisswine Sat 15-Feb-14 08:37:37

congratulations sparkle

Zermatt Sat 15-Feb-14 08:39:15

Brill sparkle. V exciting smile

Helen87 Sat 15-Feb-14 08:54:45

What do people reckon to Internet cheapies vs FR?! Used cheapie this morning but wondering whether to buy FR in case AF doesn't show up for another few days and I end up testing again?

littlemisswine Sat 15-Feb-14 08:55:43

I think cheap ones show up earlier but ive gone off them due to the evaporation lines so prefer fr now

Treaclepie19 Sat 15-Feb-14 09:12:25

Congrats sparkle!

I agree with littlemisswine. No more cheapies for me next cycle.

Bfn this morning. No af. Af would be due today if my cycle has gone back to normal. 18/19dpo today.

Sparkle9 Sat 15-Feb-14 09:59:23

Don't quite believe it yet and won't until I test again. I'm going out later and might get a digital one. Should I test right away or wait until tomorrow morning?

littlemisswine Sat 15-Feb-14 10:42:01

id do it right away but get a twin pack just incase

Sparkle9 Sat 15-Feb-14 13:09:11

Digital says...... PREGNANT 1-2 weeks. So that's 3-4 weeks pregnant. I'm delighted, shocked and anxious about the spotting. It's going to be a tense few days while I wait and make sure it's just spotting and not AF.

Treaclepie19 Sat 15-Feb-14 13:17:27

Congrats!! smile

littlemisswine Sat 15-Feb-14 14:09:06

congratulations smile

Sparkle9 Sat 15-Feb-14 20:23:03

Thank you

noimagination80 Tue 18-Feb-14 19:35:18

Congrats to the bfp this cycle, hope everyone is doing ok?

Toffee I'm doing ok, only got exhaustion and the odd cramp. I have my first midwives appointment in two weeks. Have you registered yet?

How are you feeling this week?

Sparkle9 Tue 18-Feb-14 20:16:52

I have a blood test tomorrow then I'm guessing the next step is the midwife? I'm having the odd twinge and some brown spotting on and off but that's it!
