So the last thread disappeared so here's the deal: I realised it's really annoying to drive yourself mad wondering if you're pg during the 2ww. Newbies welcome!

NinjaChipmunk Tue 24-May-11 22:20:47

since i'm on cd14 I am about to start the madness of which you speak, wish me luck! (and hope you don't mind me crashing your thread?)

DizzyKipper Tue 24-May-11 23:06:49

Good luck Ninja, I think the point after ovulation is the worst time of any cycle, so much waiting and driving yourself mad. And yes completely agree with you bex, I don't know why I can't be sensible and rational during the 2ww and just wait patiently but apparently I can't!

btw no more spotting, no AF. Went out and bought 2 FRs and a clear blue digital, am pondering whether to use a FR tomorrow incase the one-steps are just rubbish.

How's the pain bex?

Bexamundo Wed 25-May-11 06:29:46

I'm starting to think the one-steps are more hindrance since it's a "see something you're pg" it drives you.mad! Having said that I bought a Fahrenheit thermometer that came with 10 free. Likely to.escalate the obsession again!
Pain is being helped by co-codamol. Never going to try to survive on paracetamol only again!
ninja as I said newbies very welcome. Sounds like from the other thread you've done well with the swi?! On thus thread we like to heat details of insanity symptom spotting to show we're all as mad as each other!
patientgriselda is a regular but she's been a bit quiet, pg are you lurking?!

PatientGriselda Wed 25-May-11 07:02:42

Hey, where did the old thread go?

Hi everyone, and sorry for silence. I think it was my turn for a Week Of Despair, so I have been keeping away from MN (or trying to - I did pop onto other boards) until I was less woeful and tear-ridden about the whole wretched conception business.

Now that the old thread has gone, I can't see how everyone else has been! Any special news? Nothing new to tell here. Still not pregnant, still dwelling an annoying amount on it!

Bexamundo Wed 25-May-11 07:11:10

I'm being referred to fertility clinic. Af arrived Sunday (25 day cycle!!) So wagged to GP to say "I think I've got pcos and I'm not sure I'm ovulating regularly". He says "I agree". Checked more bloods yesterday, awaiting results. Appt 1st July need ultrasound and presume will see specialist. Suspect I'll be a clomid taker.
Sorry you've been feeling down! Glad you're chin is up a bit now.

PatientGriselda Wed 25-May-11 07:13:52

When is your appointment? I have got mine coming up at the beginning of June. Well done for getting the referral! It's all progress!

DizzyKipper Wed 25-May-11 07:22:21

Ok just did a FR, BFP! The second line is faint, but definitely there, appeared in the first min! a bit shell-shocked actually - had to wait 'til OH had left the house cause I knew he'd be annoyed me testing so soon again, now wishing madly I could get hold of him but his phone's cut off and won't take incoming calls. As soon as it sinks in I'll start doing my crazy happy dance grin

DizzyKipper Wed 25-May-11 07:24:26

Ahhh, 45mins til OH arrives at work and I get to tell him he's going to be a father, why didn't I just do the test whilst he was here?

Bexamundo Wed 25-May-11 08:22:00

My appt is 1st July. Dh's analysis is 1st June. Aiming to lose a stone by then so I'm only "overweight" no longer obese!!
dizzy congratulations. Now -breathe- get your head round it. Dh has 8 months to prepare.
You didn't test for the reasons you said! Go and have a cuppa and rhino of excuses why you can't drink/eat pate!

DizzyKipper Wed 25-May-11 08:26:52

lol Thanks bex, still waiting agonisingly for OH to arrive at work so I can tell him! Already thinking through who I'm going to tell, when and how. Think we'll tell all the close people and family straight away - anyone else will either find out through the gossip chain or when we get our scans and OH puts a pic up on fb. Oo, OH is at work! catch ya later wink

NinjaChipmunk Wed 25-May-11 09:40:51

That's it! I'm staying on this thread, it's only been a matter of hours and there is a BFP already! Congratulations Dizzy, how long had you been trying? You must let us know your OH's response.
My first fertility clinic appointment is coming up in June too, looks like a lot of us will be going around the same time. We'll have to compare notes as the appointments go by.

Good luck with losing the weight bex, you have good reasons and a deadline to help you so wishing you all the luck.

I'm on cd15, too ealry to symptom spot this week I think, will see how it goes by this time next week.

Bexamundo Wed 25-May-11 17:51:30

Yes! This thread is only 2 cycles old in total we've already had a bfp! Let's hope it's contagious. Now dizzy did you do anything different this month?!
I am feeling very positive today, been to the gym and came home to find Dh cooking a healthy tea! Him being motivated to be healthy is really helping me. I think this time we realise there's a real need to lose the weight so there's no point cheating!

DizzyKipper Thu 26-May-11 06:49:14

Actually OH was away for the first fertile days of this cycle and we didn't do the deed before he left, was the first thing we did when he got back on the predicted ovulation day wink Maybe that actually helped?
OH is thrilled, although thinks I'm getting a bit carried away and wants me to slow down a bit. It was our 2nd month but I have been waiting over 3 years to get to try, so can't help being a bit excited.

Glad things are going better for you bex, just making the effort can help make you feel that much better. It particularly helps when it's not just you making the effort I find, it gets really hard when you're the one having to stay motivated and push on for the both of you all the time doesn't it?

And good luck on your 2ww Ninja, hopefully lots of symptoms are about to follow smile

PatientGriselda Thu 26-May-11 07:14:27

Dizzy, congratulations! That's fantastic news! Well done to you and OH.

I didn't say welcome to ninjachipmunk before - hi ninja! How long have you been trying? I guess it's a while, if you've got a referral appt coming up. I wish I knew what to expect for mine. I have a horrid feeling it'll just be discussion, and feel a bit of an anti climax.

NinjaChipmunk Thu 26-May-11 09:27:03

Hi Griselda, we've been trying for 13 months now, and ds who is 3.7 was concieved first month of trying. We've had day 3 and 21 blood tests and sperm tests done and everything is good so who knows why it is taking so long this time? Have also realised my appt is in July not june oops! I have no idea what to expect at the appointment and like you I'm guessing the first one will be an anti climax and won't really resolve anything. Maybe I'll get an ironic bfp just before I go?

PatientGriselda Thu 26-May-11 19:05:57

I'm hoping for an ironic one too! My cycle is so bloody unpredictable that I never know when AF is "due", so am basically trying to leave it till the morning of the appointment before I POAS. That will be CD45!

PatientGriselda Thu 26-May-11 19:07:34

My doctor did all the blood and scan tests on me, but no one has yet suggested that DP's sperm is looked at! I assume that that will be one new appointment that will come out of it.

Bexamundo Thu 26-May-11 21:27:02

I feel a bit rubbish! Woke with a bad head, can't seem to shake it!
Finally told my colleague of 7 months (the one who's told me to 'keep my legs crossed' for the whole time') about our difficulties ttc and she was so blaze it really wound me up. Just some bs about timing etc. Clearly she has no idea how I feel (she has DD that she didn't have to work too hard for. She also doesn't get what a pelvic ultrasound entails!!!!!
PatientGriselda I'd push to get your dp's man juice checked out asap, waiting list here was 3 months! Worth getting him checked before your gynae appt.

PatientGriselda Thu 26-May-11 21:44:20

God, I love the "timing" people. Do they really think that after a year and a half of this that you have never heard that advice before, and had no idea about ovulation etc? Almost as bad as the "relax" crowd. Mutter mutter.

Are you drinking enough water, Bex? That's usually been my error, when I feel rubbish.

Bexamundo Fri 27-May-11 07:49:50

Yes not quite as bad as the relaxing crowd but still! I think as well because out service is a bit up in the air about the future (well it is the NHS) and she wants me to takes things forward while she potentially for a off to do her Msc it is not convenient for me to have a baby. According to her timetable I can have one in 2 years time!!
Headache eased, I decided yesterday I was dehydrated but drank 2 litres water and still had bad head! Just one of those things, is ok now after 8 hours kip!
8 hours to work then it's bank holiday smile. Have people got fun plans?

PatientGriselda Fri 27-May-11 08:48:41

Off to visit friends for a couple of days, and then just relaxing/shagging at home. Am on CD33, surely I can stop soon!

What about you?

Bexamundo Fri 27-May-11 13:10:10

Ah Dh's nan is coming to stay! She's ace, very sprightly for 76! Will show her round Lincoln, having a bbq on.Sunday, should be nice. Just potter at home mostly.
Already given up on much swi this cycle, maybe tonight before DNan comes over tomorrow but Dh has his clinic appt 1st June so has to perform(!) 3 days before and then not until he does his sample the morning of the appt (which of course is my ovulation day!).

DizzyKipper Fri 27-May-11 14:07:39

I'll be sorting out moving bits on Saturday - only 4weeks to go. Then we're seeing OH's family on Sunday. Your DH's nan sounds lovely bex.

Bexamundo Fri 27-May-11 20:35:00

Ah...and relax. Spent last two hours spring cleaning for nan's arrival! Finally cleared the junk from the living room (albeit into the study!) It looks massive!
Happily relaxing with a pimms grin.
Your move is rolling round quickly dizzy!
Sounds like we've all got pretty civilised weekends ahead! Enjoy.
