Due to the luck thread starters have, I thought I'd mark a place for the second thread as we are so chatty!

Here's to BFPs for us all :-)

Maclairey Fri 08-Jun-12 15:03:01

Do another one Dulcet.

Clearly I am a bad influence...

KickTheGuru Fri 08-Jun-12 15:06:58

I have internet cheapies

I did PIAC (pee in a cup) the day before last but I knew it was a waste because I am drinking so much water that it won't get picked up anyway...

Operation internet cheapie PIAC commences tomorrow morning

I think I might join the POAS party as well on Monday. Only got 5 sticks atm so will need to get some from ebay!

DulcetMoans Fri 08-Jun-12 15:08:55

Well it was the only one I had. Just one left over from a two pack from a scare nearly two years ago! I probably should get some more if we are doing this thing properly...

I am the least organised TTC person, I swear!

KickTheGuru Fri 08-Jun-12 15:11:15

We had one left over from last cycle - stupid thirst / heartburn (same as now) made me think I was pregnant.

Then another 5 or so from December when we had a chem pg.

And I just bought 15 off the internet

I am sure I have enough to test grin

Maclairey Fri 08-Jun-12 15:15:18


Anyone else wanna join in. The more people that join the poas party the more likely someone will be successful.

FC for us all. Kick will you be able to hold your pee all night?

DulcetMoans Fri 08-Jun-12 15:23:05

That's it, I am going to the shop after work to get one. I want to play! I fully expect a BFN but at least I will have been involved!

Maclairey Fri 08-Jun-12 15:28:39

Me too Dulcet but I am happy to take one for the team. It has to happen eventually right?

KFFOREVER Fri 08-Jun-12 15:28:47

Im back too. I tried to post on the other thread (a long post too but now I have lost it). Oh well. My boss let me work from home this afternoon but MN is sooooo addictive. I was thinking while I was on the bus that getting pregnant should be like getting a cold. lol

KickTheGuru Fri 08-Jun-12 15:32:20

KF - you ok?

I can hold it for about 4 hours at night, if the thirst thing can be controlled (randomly) by the antihistamines again. At least I can POAS and just have fun. Will be 5 days before AF is due so like a 46% chance of a positive anyway

How the hell do I remember all these stats?

Pinkie29 Fri 08-Jun-12 15:35:13

Christ I turn my back for 5 minutes and you turn into a bunch of pee on stickers grin I always peed in a pot!

Well midwife (finally) rang! My first appointment is June 22nd I asked her about the cramping she said its perfectly normal and especially with the first pregnancy the womb is adjusting that way for the first time and stretching so it can feel a bit uncomfortable, she said if it gets really bad or any sign of bleeding go straight to the gp who will refer me to gynaecology, not had anything worse than mild/moderate period pain as yet and things seem calmer today smile

KickTheGuru Fri 08-Jun-12 15:39:45

YAY for the (slightly lazy) midwife!

At least all concerns have been put to rest now. Thats brilliant! Does she seem nice?

Popinda Fri 08-Jun-12 15:45:44

I'm in too! I want to poas! I got over 30 tests at home! Im addicted to testing! blushgrin Way early for me as I'm only about to ov this cycle! blush] But I want to join the party! gringrin
Just to see how much of an addict I'm, I poaos (peen on an ov stick) twice a day! blush
When is the poas party? I really want some biscuitbiscuitbiscuit

NicolaHazel Fri 08-Jun-12 15:46:57

I'll join in if my cheapie ones have appeared!

It'll be BFN, but sod it!

KickTheGuru Fri 08-Jun-12 15:48:39

BFN for me too

Shame DH was worried because one of the tests they are doing is hormonal so they need to do it on CD2. He was all concerned because what I what if I don't HAVE a CD2 this cycle...

Popinda Fri 08-Jun-12 15:54:33

Kick - have you just tested?

FlipperSkipper Fri 08-Jun-12 15:55:13

Thank you KickTheguru, every Dr I've ever spoken to about it has a different opinion, and until any tests show it's good news or bad there's no way of knowing.

Love the POAS party that seems to be happening! smile

KickTheGuru Fri 08-Jun-12 16:00:31

pop - nope am just predicting grin

Yeh flipper - it's different to each doctor. When I started with my fibroids, I was 27 and the first doctor I saw told me I needed a hysterectomy. I told him where he could shove his head...

What specifically are you doing for the pregnancy thing?

FlipperSkipper Fri 08-Jun-12 16:21:17

I like your style Kick! grin What specifically am I doing? Just shagging lots! My blood tests say I'm ovulating, although husband's sperm count came back as low, so that's being re-tested. We've been referred to the hospital where I'm hoping for a lap and dye or hysterosalpingogram to see if there is a problem with my tubes. I'm using the CBFM (which is good, as I ovulate much later than I thought) but trying not to get too obsessive about it all - the last couple of weeks have been hard though, I'm thinking about it all too much really.

KickTheGuru Fri 08-Jun-12 16:23:51

Make sure you shag EOD with the low sperm count so that his swimmers get a chance to recoup.

Try to just DTD for as long as possible over the entire time.

KFFOREVER Fri 08-Jun-12 16:33:58

kick I felt queasy this morning. I have just finished AF so nope its not pregnancy. Must be something dodgy I ate.

Wow guys I can't keep up. Soon my house work and work will get neglected. blush

FlipperSkipper Fri 08-Jun-12 16:41:36

Cheers kick! Blimey, the stuff you discuss with people you've never met on the net smile

EchoDragon Fri 08-Jun-12 16:47:43

Oh maclairey I can sympathise I'm on cd50 and appear to have EWCM last two days. So who knows what the help is going on with me.

POA's I'd join you but I don't have any at the mo. Hmm will have to rectify that. So fx for you all. Here's to BFP's all around.

<fixes kitten with a stern glare and smacks hand for not sharing nicely>

KickTheGuru Fri 08-Jun-12 16:48:05

Nothing is private anymore...mwaaaahahaha!!

KickTheGuru Fri 08-Jun-12 16:49:58

Bad luck on queasiness sad

I have left work early on account of feeling like a sick hot dog
