Thank you for the welcome and happy new year all.

Ahh congrats Booze!!! So jealous! DH is making me wait till Saturday to test sad but I don't think I'll need to- am feeling AF-y today sad oh well

Welcome Serious! Good luck!

SeriousStuff Mon 31-Dec-12 11:20:07

Hi all, can I join? My DH and I are starting TTC #1 from tomorrow (one last blow out tonight!) We were married in March and decided in October that January would be a good time for us to start trying. We've been a bit slack with protection since that conversation anyway but now it's down to business!

We've both been taking the necessary supplements and it's now becoming quite real! Any last minute pieces of advice or encouragement?!

MrsBri Mon 31-Dec-12 07:08:10

Ooh...Congrats booze :-) Fx it is sticky. Your body is clearly keen to be pregnant!

MotherOfCleo Mon 31-Dec-12 00:24:57

I tested this morning. I realised afterwards that it was only 10dpo and AF not due for 5 days, but I got a faint BFP. Will test again tomorrow or Tuesday to make sure it's getting darker, but for now I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping for a sticky one this time!

RaspberrysAndIcecream Sun 30-Dec-12 21:13:56

Day 20 & no ov yet again - hoping that it happens soon - can't believe i getting impatient for the 2ww!!

Ru testing 2moro booze? good luck!!!

Blockette Sat 29-Dec-12 21:10:47

Ahh wow booze! Hope you are enjoying yourself! - when are you due back? Can you fly back if you get a +ve? you will be so sad being stuck in the sun
Eek fx for you what a great way to start the year!, I will be trailing along a few days behind, but no symptoms coming my way not even one to pretend with!

- everyone keep your eyes open for a new thread - this one is almost full! I will start a new one tomorrow when I'm off the phone smile

Hi blockette I'm in Amereeeca and SS like a loon. Testing on NYE which might be a little bit early but I'm trying to contain bad news in 2012!!

Blockette Sat 29-Dec-12 14:42:59

Hi everyone! How are we all doing? Any serious SS going on? Anyone tempted to test early?

RaspberrysAndIcecream Thu 27-Dec-12 19:27:27

Hey block and booze!!
I'm still waiting to ov - next couple of days it should be & then it'll be the 2ww hmm

Jealous of ur road trip booze - sounds amazing!!!
Ive been to Ikea today, not quite as exciting!!! grin have fun!!!

Boozeandadietjinglebell Wed 26-Dec-12 22:11:02

Oh god, me too. I saw the cutest reindeer outfit in JL and seriously considered it and nearly bought a Mulberry changing bag in the sale because it was half price

I'm 6dpo and SS with a vengeance. I am extremely farty have a bit of wind, achey legs in the evening, constantly erect, bumpy and sore nipples, and nausea in the late evenings. Apart from the sore nipples, the other things are all symptoms I had when I was pg last time, but earlier, so if I am pg then I see that as a good sign; that the hcg levels are higher than they were.

I'm in Texas at the moment and starting our little road trip tomorrow, so that will hopefully keep my mind off it. Considering POAS on NYE so that I can contain any bad news in 2012. AF should have been due on the 1st but I ov'ed two days later than I should have done so think I'm due around the 3rd.

Blockette Wed 26-Dec-12 20:42:53

Hi everyone! Dh and I where just talking about what to do for Christmas next year "with the baby" lol - we can only dream! I did get to dress my God son (18 months) up as a Christmas pudding though ;)

Started my 2ww and not a single symptom! Rubish! I'm blaming the excitement of Christmas for me just not noticing! ;)

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas

RaspberrysAndIcecream Wed 26-Dec-12 12:26:35

Hi everyone!! Hope u all had a good Christmas!!

I spent a lot of yesterday dreaming about next year & really hoping that we have a little one to play with and dress it in a stupid elf babygrow!!

Boozeandadietjinglebell Mon 24-Dec-12 18:21:13

Yay for MiL avoidance and having fun. Long may it continue.

Happy Christmas everyone x

Blockette Sun 23-Dec-12 20:56:22

Glad it's going ok Fl0 - happy Christmas everyone!!

Weird people saying about feeling negative towards pregnant women/babies. I do kindof have that but it's more a case of people who started ttc well after we did (we've been "at it" for 15 months now) and now have conceived and have a baby. I think how different our lives could have been if we'd conceived any time in those 15 months. I guess I'm happy as I've had a promotion at work, and SIL's baby (who we met this week) is amazing and adoreable and I've got to have a billion cuddles so far. I'm also really please SIL is feeling really chilled and is an awesome natural mother. She's a bit highly strung normally, but being a mother suits her in a way we never predicted (especially as she wasn't happy pregnant- was very sick and struggled with the concept of not having the flat tummy she'd had for 31 years!)... but anyway!

Good news is although MIL is driving me crazy, I've managed to avoid her in a way I don't normally get a chance to. I've only argued twice with my dad (both where he appeared to be implying I'm an idiot), walked along the beach and seen overall feeling remarkably relaxed. AF was mercifully short and light (as it seems to be at the moment) so we're back to having fun smile

MotherOfCleo Fri 21-Dec-12 13:57:20

I'll join you booze I'm only 3dpo (well days past positive OPK so pos 2dpo) I just don't understand how we can't get preggo this month, so much sex at the right times etc.

This month HAS to be our month surely (and I mean mine and yours booze lol, cutting the men out lol) smile

I do have some quite painful cramping, twinging and the odd shooting pain today, can't be implantation as it's too early but I've not had this before. FX.

Boozeandadietjinglebell Fri 21-Dec-12 13:30:43

Okay, I feel bad now too. I think one of the reasons a BFN will destroy me this month is because it was so easy to get pg last time - first month of trying properly. So this time, knowing that I should be more fertile after a mc, and having thrown OPKs, conceive plus and a lot of sex at this cycle, I'll be absolutely gutted if I'm not pg.

Bloody hell. Pity party for one... and it's only 1dpo

MotherOfCleo Fri 21-Dec-12 11:05:53

Ahh blockette I didn't know they had been trying for a I feel bad...blush.

Announcements really hurt don't they, knock the wind right out of my sails. It's not that I don't want them to be pregnant I'm just jealous that it's not me shouting it from the roof tops.

I have to say I am quite excited to do the announcement as I think many people will be shocked! Esp a certain ex friend. grin

Blockette Fri 21-Dec-12 10:52:16

ohh Booze me too! But then I felt bad as I found out they had been trying for a year, and we've only been trying for 4 months.

I have been banned from testing this month until I'm a whole week late! Apparently I'm not hiding the TTC Crazies as well as I thought! blush

Cleo, I'm the same pg ladies and babies are ok - it's the announcements that sting envy
