I'm on CD 7 and am going to follow the smerm meets egg plan this month - is anybody in the same part of their cycle? Thought we could encourage and help each other out smile

Rockchick1984 Thu 30-Jan-14 08:23:17

Just wanted to wish you good luck - the month I tried SMEP I fell pregnant, am now 35 weeks!

MarvellousMechanicalMouseOrgan Thu 30-Jan-14 09:05:40

I'll give it a go, although we're having so little sex at the moment I can't see us actually managing it!

Squeakybeaky Thu 30-Jan-14 12:55:57

That's encouraging to know rock chick thanks for that smile marvellous what CD are you on?
I'm on CD8 today - dtd on CD6 and will tonight on CD8 I've just done an OPK and have a faint line which I think means nothing but still exciting smile

Anybody else want to join us?

Mummy2Bea Thu 30-Jan-14 14:20:59

Hi I've decided to try this now too. Had a cervical ectopic in September which was pretty traumatic one way and another. Have DD and it happened first cycle so was hoping it might be the same this time round but it seems not. Good luck!

Mummy2Bea Thu 30-Jan-14 14:25:57

Oh... On CD4. Bought a load of cheapo opks from amazon so ready to gosmile

akachan Thu 30-Jan-14 14:36:47

I'm in 2ww but managed a pitiful amount of sex this month so I am smepping next month unless I get a surprising result!

MarvellousMechanicalMouseOrgan Thu 30-Jan-14 14:42:33

I'm on day 6.

smorgasborgen Thu 30-Jan-14 15:09:09

hi all!! (v tired wave from all the DTD ing!)

could I join? I'm on CD 15. really strange period last month long but light following a mc a couple of months ago so put it down t that. problem its left me not knowing what was the first day of the cycle!

anyway trying t do it as much as possible but u do feel really guilty if u miss a night.

it just seems so important t get pregnant this month...hmm I guess if Im ahead of you, I could give u hope if I get prego! wink

KittyVonCatsington Thu 30-Jan-14 19:00:13

Tried it last month/cycle and it didn't work sad

On CD8 now of the new cycle and already DTD this morning. It's nice to have a plan to help you feel in control, I think. FX this month it works; for all of us!

Squeakybeaky Thu 30-Jan-14 22:05:28

Yes fingers crossed for us! We are off to bed in a Min;)

Squeakybeaky Sat 01-Feb-14 17:00:20

How is everyone getting on - we are on CD10 today. But still very very faint OPK's. is anyone following the plan? We have dtd on day 6, day 8 and will tonight on day 10 so far.

KittyVonCatsington Sat 01-Feb-14 17:37:19

Got my first flashing smiley on CB Digi this morning, on CD10! Earlier than I thought it would be grin. Hope the non-flashing smiley comes soon...

smorgasborgen Sat 01-Feb-14 18:33:35

its really hard going this smep plan. we did it every other day then every night from positive opk. gone back t a faint line so should I have a day off now? so tired! and I think my husband would really really a night off! x

smorgasborgen Sat 01-Feb-14 19:03:14

oh gosh, just did an opk for today and a strong positive.very confused! I can't face DTD ... but will wonder what if at the end of the month! blush

MarvellousMechanicalMouseOrgan Sat 01-Feb-14 19:07:53

I'm rather dreading it all!

smorgasborgen Sat 01-Feb-14 19:43:58

just don't start too early in your cycle that's all I'll say otherwise partner will start avoiding been in the same room as you come ovulation time! shock

Squeakybeaky Sun 02-Feb-14 21:08:23

Smorgasbord I'd do tonight and then night off tomorrow if I were you. Are you using cheap OPK's? Mine was darker today than it was yesterday.

hazchem Sun 02-Feb-14 22:20:08

I'm on CD7 here. We DTD this morning and wondering if We should do it tomorrow to get into the even number days or just go for CD 9 instead? Any thoughts. Hopefully I'll pick up so OPK tomorrow.

Squeakybeaky Mon 03-Feb-14 12:52:34

Don't think you need to be on even days hazchem! Good luck! So far I have dtd on day 6,8,10,11.

smorgasborgen Mon 03-Feb-14 17:49:28

Saturday was a strong positive as well! DTD sat morning (two in the morning )! and Sunday mid day...
that's it now though. I love him but no more can be done!!! smile

smorgasborgen Mon 03-Feb-14 17:54:06

oh, squeaky beaky using superdrug own brand opks - five opks. blue box with baby on the front. 😅

SnowBells Mon 03-Feb-14 17:56:00

Our plan is: Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.

That works out almost as SMEP. But last week, DH couldn't do it Thursday as he was too tired. sad

Squeakybeaky Mon 03-Feb-14 19:43:12

I got a very strong line on an OPK this evening so I reckon it's all go for us now for the next 3 days then I'll have that rest day and one more!

Good luck smorgasbord sounds like you've done all you can do smile

MarvellousMechanicalMouseOrgan Mon 03-Feb-14 19:49:42

I'm using cheap internet OPKs, got a faint line today so hopefully a strong line will come tomorrow.

MarvellousMechanicalMouseOrgan Mon 03-Feb-14 19:50:47

Posted too soon. What's the reasoning behind DTD before the positive OPK? Doesn't the OPK give you 24-48 hours notice of ovulation?

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Mon 03-Feb-14 19:52:35

Just be careful! DS was on board but didn't cope overly well with the pressure of ttc and SMEP mealy finished him off.
If your oh might possibly be similar, then perhaps just guide him in the right direction without actually mentioning the plan! wink grin

Squeakybeaky Mon 03-Feb-14 19:54:28

Marvellous! It's best to have sperm up there already for the egg when it's released. Sperm can live up to 7 days up there so I guess it's just increasing the chances smile

I had a faint line on day 8, no line on day 9 and 10, a string line on day 11 and a really really strong line today on day 12.

Squeakybeaky Mon 03-Feb-14 19:55:28

Oh I haven't mentioned the plan ha ha. He got excited about the positive OPk though ha ha

hazchem Mon 03-Feb-14 23:55:05

Well I went to the chemist to get some OPKs today and they were sold out! Going to be a lot of babies in my town soon smile I'll try at another one either this arvo or tomorrow. I explained the SPEM plan to OH today and he was like oh that is pretty much what we did when DS was conceived which is true although we didn't do it to a plan then.

KittyVonCatsington Tue 04-Feb-14 06:20:59

Marvellous-the reasoning behind it is so that you have a store of sprem waiting when your egg is released. The OPKs are not 100 exact as each of us may have shorter LH surges or longer ones. Therefore, having sperm ready gives you a greater chance of conceiving rather than waiting for the ego to be released after and missing out!

katecupoftea Tue 04-Feb-14 19:34:37

On cd7, dtd yesterday so planning on tomorrow too etc. Last month though, although we weren't ttc I did do OPKs to understand my cycle more and seemed to ov on cd 16, only giving me a 10 day lp. Which is not good, no?
How are those who are in the middle of the plan holding up?

Squeakybeaky Tue 04-Feb-14 19:39:40

I'm on day 13 today so pretty much middle cycle. I got another VERY strong line on OPK tonight so another night of go go go! Ha ha

Squeakybeaky Tue 04-Feb-14 19:43:34

I'm not sure about lp whether shorter or longer is better

katecupoftea Tue 04-Feb-14 19:50:00

Ooh just looked at opk and there is a very faint line. I wonder if maybe I missed the whole thing last month and actually ov'd earlier? This whole thing is confusing.

Squeakybeaky Tue 04-Feb-14 19:54:03

I had a faint line on day 8

Squeakybeaky Tue 04-Feb-14 19:54:40

But. Not strong til day 12

hazchem Wed 05-Feb-14 06:48:49

feeling a bit down in the dumps. I've got brownish discharge today and also yesterday even though my period ended on CD 5 and today is CD9. My periods are normally pretty short but I had a stupidly long on off one last time ( after a miscarriage) and feel like this one is going to be the same. I just want to a) get on with making a baby and b) make love to my partner. ekkk

ImBrian Wed 05-Feb-14 07:36:30

I attemptemed smep this month and by tge time I got a +ov he was sick of the sight of me. Managed it both days I had a positive but thats it : /
Hazchem, my cycle after my mc was strange. I had bleeding and brown stuff from cd12-16. I also got pregnant smile Fingers crossed for you.

Bobo13 Wed 05-Feb-14 09:43:53

I have only just heard of SMEP plan. We did something like it. Didn't dtd as much prior to +opk as we normally would, but dtd the day of +opk and the next night. Tried again last night, but DH was too tired. wondering if we should try again tonight. Got the +opk on Sunday, but did feel like I ov'd on Monday. Any thoughts on whether to try again?

hazchem Wed 05-Feb-14 09:45:53

Oh that is cheering news "ImBrain". Now I just have to try to wait up for OH. who is on a late shift tonight smile

Squeakybeaky Wed 05-Feb-14 13:02:51

Bobo dtd tonight then that will be your miss a night and have one more shot. I am quite keen just to go to sleep tonight but we'll see ;)

Bobo13 Wed 05-Feb-14 13:45:02

Thanks Squeaky....will give that a go. If no BFP this month then I think I'll follow the plan strictly next month.
Do you feel like you've ovulated? It could be you're due to ovulate tomorrow....maybe you could have an early night then kick start tomorrow by dtd! grin

Squeakybeaky Wed 05-Feb-14 13:50:19

I feel as though I ovulated yesterday. Reckon we'll prob dtd again tonight! Why not. Can't do early mornings as already have 2 little ones who were both in my bed last night due to the awful weather!

BumpNGrind Wed 05-Feb-14 13:53:05

I'm on cd 9 today but I only have 24 day cycles and i haven't started opk testing yet, I've had some shap pains which have made me think its about now, but last month i ov on cd 14 so don't know what's going on.

I think I'm going to have to do an ov test tonight just in case. We've dtd on cd 7 and 8 so far so fx that even if I don't know if I've ov, then i might have caught it anyway.

Good luck with the plan, hope you all sign in here with bfp's in the new few weeks!!

MarvellousMechanicalMouseOrgan Wed 05-Feb-14 18:13:49

My OPKs are not playing ball. A couple of days of very faint lines, and today nothing.

Mummy2Bea Wed 05-Feb-14 18:53:32

Day 10 no line on opk. Struggling to get it done in the afternoon as at work so wondering if has something to do with it as was expecting maybe faint line by now? Dtd days 6 and 8 and will do tonight even though I'm shattered! Hope everyone else is getting on well? smile

SnowBells Wed 05-Feb-14 19:08:14

I'm on Day 21 (!!!) and have so far yet to hit 3 bars / egg on the CBFM...

ImBrian Wed 05-Feb-14 19:34:10

Im having problems pinning down ovulation as well. Im on cd20 and have ewcm and stabby pains but my +opks were on saturday and sunday!
Are you testing twice a day? I was testing at lunch time and about 7pm. The lines git stronger and then the last 3 days have faded. I read simewhere that if you only test once you might miss it.

Missteacake Wed 05-Feb-14 19:53:11

What is the SEMP plan? Am I being really silly is it obvious smile

Squeakybeaky Wed 05-Feb-14 20:48:09

Sperm meets egg plan - google it smile xx

BumpNGrind Thu 06-Feb-14 01:21:03

After my earlier post i decided to do an ovulation test and what do you know, strongest line ever! Maybe i ovulate earlier than i thought every month! Just got dh to dtd, its already been two nights in a row before tonight (just for fun ones) so hoping that his sperm isn't shagged out!

Bobo13 Thu 06-Feb-14 08:14:20

Lol! Hopefully not Bump smile

Squeakybeaky Thu 06-Feb-14 19:44:59

How you getting on girls? I am soooooo having a rest tonight! Have dtd in days 6,8,10,11,12,13,14 this cycle so now I'm going to sit back and wait! Don't think I could do anymore. Got my positive OV test on days 12 and 13 and my OV test tonight was back to very very faint!

Ha ha the things we do! Zzzzzzzzzzzzz

katecupoftea Thu 06-Feb-14 21:36:57

You deserve a rest squeaky! How long is your cycle usually? I'm on cd9, dtd on 6 and 8 so far.

atyourage Thu 06-Feb-14 22:07:57

Eggcellent work squeaky you deserve a night off!

I'm on CD 13, DTD on 6,8,10,12,13 so far. Still waiting for my CBFM to show high/peak. Hope it shows up soon.

FX for you.

Squeakybeaky Thu 06-Feb-14 22:34:48

Thanks all. Just got into bed and left hubby watching tele! Bliss!!

Bobo13 Thu 06-Feb-14 22:37:19

Enjoy the rest squeaky!! Hopefully I get my bfp this month, not sure I have the stamina for SMEP of that's what's expected!! smile
Fingers crossed for your bfp!

hazchem Fri 07-Feb-14 00:14:05

So I'm trying to follow SMEP but without the OPKs because I can;t find any to buy sad I had a little bit of EWCM this morning CD11 I wondered if I should start the 3 days of sex now. What do you think? Or should I wait for another day or two?

Rockchick1984 Fri 07-Feb-14 00:18:32

Haz I used these

hazchem Fri 07-Feb-14 01:31:24

Oh thanks Rockchick I'm on Oz so i think the delivary time will be a bit longsmile Last month the two local chemist had them in but then this month neither had them. If I end up getting my period I might order some as that will give me delivery time. Obviously hoping I don't need to

Gennz Fri 07-Feb-14 03:21:56

Hi squeaky! Good luck! I'm giving SMEP a shot too, TTC#1cycle 2. I'm CD8 today, got a faint line (not sure this means anything?). We DTD today so if the line gets stronger I'll have to jump DH tomorrow and Sunday as well ... I feel tired just thinking about it!

Squeakybeaky Fri 07-Feb-14 11:28:13

I had such a nice restful night! Was lovely! Good luck to all the newbies on this thread. X

Sleepingstarsmommy Fri 07-Feb-14 12:08:41

Im on cd15, been having flashing smileys since Monday just awaiting the fixed smiley. Been dtd every other day, despite my DH having a slight sniffle flu. Told him he can have a rest tonight and he asked is that in the plan as he will dtd if needed. What a brave soldier he is hmm

smorgasborgen Fri 07-Feb-14 14:36:25

its around cycle day 23 for me and I had a bit of spotting when I wiped. feel really sad. when this happens I kinda know , no bfp this month...
we put in so much effort this month.

anyway, I must stop wollowing! doesn't help your mood when you have t do training on your day off grrr!! anyway onwards n upwards x

Bobo13 Fri 07-Feb-14 16:04:41

Sorry to hear that smorgasborgen. Is that earlier than your af would normally be?
Oh Sleepingstarsmommy what a true soldier your DH is wink Men are great at playing the hero aren't they. They're so hard done to dtd so frequently!! grin

smorgasborgen Fri 07-Feb-14 16:59:28

earlier I think..not entirely sure of my cycle day. must stay positive hmm

Squeakybeaky Fri 07-Feb-14 21:49:36

Awwwww your dh sounds like a trooper sleeping starsmommy.

Keep positive smorgasbord, could it not possibly be implantation?

I'm 3dpo today! Can honestly say I have sore boobs but I really mustn't read anything into anything at the moment!

Sleepingstarsmommy Sat 08-Feb-14 03:24:39

Can I just say I hate IC opks. I can never decide whether the line is as dark or not and I panic over whether I will miss OV. I use clear blue in the morning have annoyingly been getting a flashing smiley since Monday and an IC in the evening. Can't decide whether the evening one is positive or not. The line looks almost the same as the control line but not quite. But what if Im interpreting it wrong and miss surge confused This TTC malarkey is making me neurotic. Currently debating waking DH up to dtd just in case, after all he did say he would if needed to although think I might be pushing my luck grin

Squeakybeaky Sat 08-Feb-14 07:10:54

Did you wake him? Hopefully you did - are you getting any other OV signs?

Sleepingstarsmommy Sat 08-Feb-14 10:00:23

Nope I didn't wake him - couldn't face the moaning today.

But at last a fixed smiley this morning DH response was thank god it's the weekend so have dtd when he woke up. Currently lying with my backside on a pillow having done the koala cycling thing waiting for him to bring me a cuppa. my temp hadn't risen yet this morning so hoping we have caught it in time.

Sleepingstarsmommy Sat 08-Feb-14 10:05:26

As for other OV signs I did get a couple of stabby pains on my left hand side yesterday evening. Certainly a bit more moist than usual although I wouldn't say it was ewcm. Haven't a clue about cervical position except its up there somewhere - haven't started monitoring this yet as feel as though I have enough to obsess over already confused

atyourage Sun 09-Feb-14 10:17:49

Morning all,

Well I'm on CD 16 today, still waiting for my CBFM to show a High/Peak but nothing yet. Have been DTD every other day since CD6 as last month I got a Peak on CD 10.

I hope my Peak shows up soon.

Can't work out this temping thing, my temp is all over the place. Does anyone ever wake up and actually get the same reading in the morning?

Here is brew and cake for all and all DH/DP's. I'm going to need more cake for extra energy to keep going!

SnowBells Sun 09-Feb-14 10:55:08


CBFM showed highs from CD 9 to CD 24. It's now CD 25 and it is now back on Low. NO PEAK.

Had on-and-off cramping since around Wednesday. Might have been ovulation pain.

But Wednesday was also the last time we DTD, as DH's work has been quite stressful over the last 2 weeks. Darn it.

Does anyone know what the CBFM monitor detects to go from high to low??? I've read it automatically goes to "low" after 20 readings. but why ask for a test stick, if it's going to show "low" anyway???

Squeakybeaky Sun 09-Feb-14 14:26:10

Sorry snowbells I have no experience of the CBFM! I really hope that somehow you have done enough though, good luck smile

Squeakybeaky Sun 09-Feb-14 14:27:59

Atyourage - keep going smile you are doing so well. Hope you are doing well too sleepingstarsmommy!

I am only 5dpo today but have very heavy boobs still. I am totally reading everything into this ha ha.

Sleepingstarsmommy Sun 09-Feb-14 16:53:59

Squeky still doing ok. And will soon be joining you reacting and searching google for every possible symptom.

And bless DH he is already going into protective mode 'just in case' and wouldn't let me carry the shopping or use the vacuum.

I still seem to be getting positives on the IC opks. Any idea on how long should that last???

Squeakybeaky Sun 09-Feb-14 19:54:44

When you say positive do you mean the test line is still as dark or darker than the control line?

Sleepingstarsmommy Sun 09-Feb-14 22:05:46

Yes it's still as dark as the control line confused. Didnt temp this morning but will try and remember tomorrow to see if that sheds some light.

hazchem Mon 10-Feb-14 05:36:24

I think I probably OV on Friday or Saturday but we haven't been able to get up to much action. So on DTD on Thursday and Sunday. I feel a bit sick at the thought of another 2ww. I feel like I'm going a bit freaking crazy. I guess the best thing is to just spend the next 2 weeks DTD for fun and trying not to symptom spot. smile

Thingymajigs Mon 10-Feb-14 06:16:25

Just wanted to wish you all the best of luck. I joined a SMEP thread last May after a year of TTC with nothing to show for it but disappointment. I'm now holding a gorgeous 1 week old baby boy. Hope it works out as successfully for you too.

hazchem Mon 10-Feb-14 06:37:11

Oh congratulations thanks

Squeakybeaky Mon 10-Feb-14 10:06:54

Awwwww lovely, thanks for sharing your success story with us smile

Bobo13 Mon 10-Feb-14 10:10:00

Congrats thingymajigs :-)

MarvellousMechanicalMouseOrgan Mon 10-Feb-14 11:29:16

I'm getting fed up of the OPK strips, I've been testing every day since day 6, and have never got a positive, even though yesterday I started with CM and an achey abdomen. I have a faint line, but it definitely isn't as dark as the control line.

atyourage Mon 10-Feb-14 14:14:52

Thanks squeaky, still going. CD17 today and STILL showing low on the CBFM. Grrr, only have one stick left so had to do mad dash into town to get some more. Have told DH that I will need him again tonight, he thinks he has won the lottery! How are your heavy boobs?? wink

marvellous I have used to IC strips this month for the first time. Heard mixed reviews about them. I have been getting 2 lines for about 5 days (fainter than the control), the last 2 days just one line then last night 2 lines. I'm not sure If I trust them. If you got CM yesterday then I would listen to your body and get DTD! grin

Squeakybeaky Mon 10-Feb-14 14:35:25

The ic opks worked for me and I got 2 days of definite positives.

Boobs are still feeling heavy but not as sore hmm it's all going so slowly!!

BumpNGrind Mon 10-Feb-14 16:37:33

Oh thingymajigs, what a lovely story, I love hearing success stories! I did an opk test on Wednesday night that was immediately very positive, it seemed to suck the ink out of the control line! We dtd on Wednesday and Thursday but didn't manage Friday. I'm hoping that hasn't affected our chances this month. I think I'm 4dpo so hopefully going to test this time next week. I'm wishing the week away!

smorgasborgen Mon 10-Feb-14 16:42:14

good luck everyone! good t hear a good success with SMep story. ten dpo now and brown cm started two day ago, nooooo!!!!!! angry

Bobo13 Mon 10-Feb-14 17:32:25

Oh, could that maybe be implantation at 10 dpo smorgasborgen?? Let us know how you get on over the next couple of days.

smorgasborgen Mon 10-Feb-14 17:41:21

one moment I think oooo maybe, then I think no its not. its driving me mad!! confused

Squeakybeaky Mon 10-Feb-14 18:30:40

Have you tested smorgasbord? 10dpo may well show something x

BumpNGrind Mon 10-Feb-14 18:32:32

Sporgasbogen, I'd be testing if I were you, but then I've been in the middle of a full on period and still wondering if maybe I'm pregnant. I hope its implantation for you

smorgasborgen Mon 10-Feb-14 19:18:07

I can't face it t tell u the truth! I'd be so sad! esp as then I would have t wait for the witch t arrive!
I have a couple of angry spots on my chest, just bellow my collar bone is that a symptom?! god I'm sad.

Bobo13 Mon 10-Feb-14 19:59:01

Hold off a few days and see if anything comes of it.
My friend got spots on her back when she was pregnant, but then I generally get 1 or 2 spots around af.

Bobo13 Mon 10-Feb-14 19:59:45

And you're sooo not sad!!! It's only natural to get emotional about this! X

hazchem Mon 10-Feb-14 22:20:24

I'd wait until you are over due to test. Last month I tested the day I was due but got a negative and then had my period come the next day If fucking sucked. Symptom spotting is pretty normal to do. FX for you.

Squeakybeaky Tue 11-Feb-14 10:50:14

Is everyone ok? How are you doing smorgasbord?

Sleepingstarsmommy Tue 11-Feb-14 11:51:41

I'm good although my stomach still feels tender. Not exactly painful but Im definitely aware of it. Not sure whether its anything significant - when I get a chance later I'll ask Dr Google and dry myself crazy analysing every twinge both real and imaginary

smorgasborgen Tue 11-Feb-14 16:11:49

feeling OK but tired and a little faint every now and again.. fleeting so u think did I just feel that or was that my imagination!
still bleeding a bit though....hmmmm

was talking t an agency nurse today and she said that she bled a bit everyday for a while! she went t the doctors and it turned out she was three months prego!
as u can imagine... that only got my hopes up! hmm

Squeakybeaky Tue 11-Feb-14 16:43:24

Sounds promising smorgasbord. By the way aware I call you smorgasbord and that isn't ur name but it comes up as predictive and so easier just to go with it!

My symptoms today are mostly that my boobs are falling out my bra! I am almost certain they are bigger!! Had a few sharp cramps pains down below too.

Keep going everyone!! wink

smorgasborgen Tue 11-Feb-14 17:06:33

that's OK, its because I love borgen and when I think of borgen I think of smorgesboard for some reason! it makes no sense. wink
the next couple of days are going t be unbearable.
my boobs fall out my bra, but mainly because they are so small hmm blush blush

atyourage Tue 11-Feb-14 17:17:30

Hi ladies, getting good vibes from your symptoms, FX for both of you.

Lost track of what days you are on, when do you plan to POAS?

Still waiting for the CBFM to show High/Peak but hope it will come tomorrow. Had increased CM today also the CBFM stick had a second line on it (which usually shows before a peak/High) so FX I OV soon. DH begged asked for a night off tonight. I told him NO WAY.


smorgasborgen Tue 11-Feb-14 17:38:30

they are silly for even asking!

I'm on 11 dpo! they should ovulation advent calendar with a prey test as the final window. maybe a Gilliam chocolate each day leading up to it! x

atyourage Tue 11-Feb-14 19:04:51

That is such a great idea smorg. 11 days, not long to go....

Well I was naughty and couldn't wait till the morning to PO my CBFM sooooo I bought the CB smiley things on the way home blush.

Well it was worth the money as I got a big fat smiley face!! Yay. there is NO escape DH here I come.......

I am only 7dpo today but am still going to test on Friday as will be 10dpo then.

My latest symptom is a bit gross but my vaginal walls are very very swollen. Totally not sure what this is but might write a seperate post about it as its a bit weird x

Atyourage- you go girl smile

How's everyone getting on then? I'm cd15, no sign of ov on sticks but body thinks otherwise, dtd getting boring! Wondering when I can stop!

Sleepingstarsmommy Wed 12-Feb-14 18:53:32

Well I think I OVd on Sat and now counting down until I can POAS. According to this link at 8dpo around 32% of those pregnant will get a BFP. And despite it being unlikely to be positive I plan on testing on Sunday and everyday there after at least once until either BFP or AF. Thank God for ICs otherwise my POAS addiction could become very expensive grin

I'm on CD17. SO AF is due on the 24th. Not sure if I'll test before or on the date. Might see if I get an signs.

Morning all, how we all feeling today?

I am knackered! CBFM showing 2nd Peak day today so on the home stright now. Can't wait for a good nights sleep.

kate Last month I OV'd on CD 10, this month not till CD 20! So know how you feel. We started DTD early this month and am running out of steam!

sleeping got my FX for you on Sunday.

squeaky I remember reading a post about someone else who had swollen bits the other day. Maybe this is a sign. Are you still waiting for Friday to POAS or have you given in already?

Squeakybeaky Thu 13-Feb-14 09:58:39

I did an ic test and looked like a very very faint line, did one this morning and nothing! However I am only 9dpo still. I'll test again tomorrow smile

smorgasborgen Thu 13-Feb-14 11:00:11

good luck squeaky! I had a tidal wave over night which absolutely confirms my non pregnant status. sad
so much effort this month! x

Squeakybeaky Thu 13-Feb-14 15:43:11

Oh no smorgasbord I am so so sorry to hear that!!!! sad

Bobo13 Thu 13-Feb-14 20:00:49

Sorry to hear that smorgasborgen!! hmm
Squeaky, my cheap tests arrived today. Will be able to join you poas tomorrow. Wondering if I should try to hold off, but feel like I'll need to use the tests now they're here!!

Squeakybeaky Thu 13-Feb-14 23:08:52

I have no cheap ones left hmm but have ordered more so they may be here tomorrow. I have a FR but am pretty sure nothing will show on that. X

hazchem Fri 14-Feb-14 08:02:47

smorgasborgen Sorry to hear that.

Squeakybeaky Fri 14-Feb-14 10:07:36

Has no one tested today?

SnowBells Fri 14-Feb-14 10:18:47

I think AF is coming to visit!

Saw spotting on loo roll this morning. sad

Squeakybeaky Fri 14-Feb-14 16:38:01

I caved and did an FR about an hour ago! There is the faintest line ever - 10dpo today. So hope it's right!

smorgasborgen Fri 14-Feb-14 20:08:44

smile grin how exciting squeaky!
I keep getting nauseas waves even though though witch is here!

hazchem Sat 15-Feb-14 03:24:32

Oh that is exciting Squeaky. how long will you wait to test again?

I've got tingle boobs, not so keen on feeding DS, then this morning coffee tasted weird and I felt a bit sick but I think the most likely cause of that is a drank half a bottle of wine last night smile Still got nine days til i can POAS. going a bit crazy already smile

Squeakybeaky Sat 15-Feb-14 08:56:18

Yes I got a slightly darker line on an FR this morning grin so smep worked for mewink

Still 5/6 days off AF but I have so many preg symptoms, hard to ignore them.

Good luck to the rest of you x

Sleepingstarsmommy Sat 15-Feb-14 11:50:11

Smorgasbord sorry the witch got you

Squeaky so excited by your BFP that I tested this morning and got a bfn. Hoping its just too early but feel a bit disappointed sad

hazchem Thu 20-Feb-14 00:16:14

just tested and got a neg. I'm on CD24 So should be in the first response zone. Will get some actual OPKs for next month. And try again.

That;s great news Squeakybeaky.

Bebe0707 Thu 20-Feb-14 12:47:32
