Hi! I am due my period in the next few days (I hope! that's a first ;)) then I will officially be ttc! Very exciting times...

So I thought I would start a nice friendly thread so we can go on our ttc journey together!!

I have been taking folic acid when I remember the last few weeks or so and came off the pill a few months ago.. I'm not entirely sure of my cycles yet, but think I'm due thurs or fri..

So come say hi! x

Hayle - that must have been really difficult for you having your DD there at your 12 wk scan and finding out. Think you explained really well though. Really hope your daughter will get a sibling soon - even if she won't go anywhere near the nappies!

Linda - You're welcome, and thank you - yes fingers crossed for a Jan bfp!

Pearl - Thanks for the blessings! Hope we all get our bfps before long.

kbaby - Congratulations! What are the things you tried that were different from previous months?

Threepiece - Welcome! This is a lovely thread with a supportive bunch of people. :-) I understand your frustration. We've been trying since Sept, so not quite as long as you - but our first was conceived first go, so you do start to wonder... I am sure it will happen though - we've all got to try and stay positive, even if it is difficult.

Hi I decided to pump up his sperm count even if it wasn't low lol I'm a total physco, and I just had to try everything because no 1 told me TTC could become obsessive l

111007kbaby Wed 12-Dec-12 22:27:58

Lol sorry broke up MSG silly I pad.

I started him on WellCare conception for men, I also went holland and Barrett brought a supply if fish oil capsules. As they contain fatty acids which is another good thing to boost.
Then I put my self on pregnancies trying to conceive pills I started taking vitamin b complex, I also used conceive plus.
And purchased a cbfm monitor but tbh I wouldn't put to much trust in the monitor, and I can't Beleive I got my bfp that was the only thing I tried different and it worked mayb it was just luck either way it doesn't hurt to try new things. Xxx

HayleBoppingAroundTheXmasTree Wed 12-Dec-12 22:45:46

Do glad you have done another test kbaby to reassure yourself!! Send us some baby dust. :-)

Thanks life it was hard but she's quite grown up for a nearly four year old tbh and so she knew what had happened just not in as much detail (obvs)

AF due anytime now... Been feeling a little damp down below. Sorry for tmi and random symptom spotting! Expecting AF Saturday but as I was 4 days early last cycle it could be anytime now. The bitch better stay away!!

On the plus side, ALL my pressies are wrapped so I'm good to go.

Anyone else testing the weekend (if the witch doesn't arrive)?

sad sad sad sad
BFN sad

Kbaby Congratulations dear .... I got this month's target now ... lets see if it works out for me this month or nt....

We started TTC from 14th-feb 2012 smile onwards, but I was unaware of me having PCOS, so then after natural trials till May... we went to the Gyn... where I discovered I have PCOS .... then ... she treated me with some B-Long and Ebexid [though i had no Thyroid issues] .... for 3-months, then she put me on Ebixid again and Crisanta [Birth control pills] for another 3-months, and all these months since my treatment started, my periods got regular with 28-30 days cycle. n

Now last month she gave me Duphaston 10 mg and continue Ebixid ..... so last month's period arrived after 6-days as expected ..... and I bled [sry TMI] for 2.5 days only ..... with no Pre- menstrual symptoms, no cramps nothing .... the 3rd day it was spotting ....

I have been in a tremendous stress last month .... may be that was the reason, co I got BFN today.

Hope i get pregnant 2-3 months from now.....

Anyone else tried HPT???

clare8allthepies Thu 13-Dec-12 07:16:15

Congratulations kbaby may your BFP be the first of many!

Sorry about your BFN pearl don't have any experience of PCOS but when I conceived DD I came off the pill about 6 months before we started TTC and it did take a few months for my cycle to become regular, hope it won't be long for you (or any of us) smile

111007kbaby Thu 13-Dec-12 09:07:48

Hi Thankyou all do much feels nice to talk about it as not telling the fam till the 12 week mark I'm just hoping 4 a healthy pregnancy.
I'm sending loads of baby dust and loves you ways hope it happens for every one of you soon, I never thought this was guna b my month but it just was. It will happen just be persistent xxxx

LindaLetitSnowMagoo Thu 13-Dec-12 09:54:42

Sorry about the bfn pearl, it will happen for you soon. I was diagnosed with pcos about 15 years ago, met my oh 5 years ago and fell pregnant 9 months later, had my gorgeous ds then tried for a year for my 2nd ds now onto ttc #3, I tried for a long time in my previous relationship with no joy so when the time is right you will have your lo, good luck xxx

CrackerJackShack Thu 13-Dec-12 10:08:34

Another BFN this morning. sad

Need to stop doing these and wait till my period is actually late.

LindaLetitSnowMagoo Thu 13-Dec-12 11:02:00

Easier said than done cracker, especially if your a poas addict like me... When's your af due?

CrackerJackShack Thu 13-Dec-12 11:09:01

Not sure. I wavier between 26 day and 28 day cycles, so my period is either due tomorrow or Sunday. And yes, I'm a total poas addict. I'd do them twenty times a day if I could afford them.

HayleBoppingAroundTheXmasTree Thu 13-Dec-12 11:18:08

I'm out :-(

Here we go again.

LindaLetitSnowMagoo Thu 13-Dec-12 11:35:41

There's still time cracker, fx for you...

Hayle, so sorry hmm fx this will be your month grin

lifeislikeaboxofchoccies Thu 13-Dec-12 13:24:26

Sorry for your BFPs Pearl, Cracker (there's hope still) and Hayle sad. Geez, it appears this was just not our month! Come on girls, lets get cracking over Christmas and get some New Year's BFPs! Alternatively, lets all just try and chill over Christmas, and actually try and enjoy ourselves without thinking babies every single second. Sigh.. if only! Well, I am definitely having champagne.
Chin up girls. xxx

Overreactionoftheweek Thu 13-Dec-12 20:04:32

I know it's hugely annoying when people trot out the 'relax and it will happen' line...but that is what happened for me with ds1. More than 18 months of trying, then I got my dates wrong and we just had sex for fun and got the bfp.

So I'll be getting sloshed on champagne over Christmas and it'll be bound to happen right?! grin

Congrats kbaby and good luck for next cycle to those with bfn.

homebertha Thu 13-Dec-12 20:55:44

Hellooo everyone, more the merrier? Tough journey padster good your here now though... And life... 'The fertile spray' I thought ey up I ve been missing something here. Made me laugh. Not really sure of all the abbreviations but we are ttc as of last month and I ve just had the 2ww ( am getting hang of it now!) alas period today. It's good to know my cycle has returned to its normal rhythm as have been breastfeeding my little on for (ever) 18 month and so only just started getting periods back 2 months ago... Anyway enough for now. Good luck ladies xxx

homebertha Thu 13-Dec-12 21:12:09

What's bfn? A little relaxing and drinking over Xmas sounds good to me though I m realising I ve not read half the thread oops I ll get the hang of it soon xx

111007kbaby Thu 13-Dec-12 21:33:20

Hya Thankyou, so need some advice ladies ok went to docs today she was a total b** sorry she had no compassion tht I previously lost a child her responce was ye it's normal sO no we won't early scan you, I'm really pissed of and annoyed that a foc can just say its normal to loose a baby and happens all the time like wat kind of hope is she giving me??? Any way do you think I should book a private scan just to give me peice of mind I was thInking for then end of January ? An oh ye 4 gt to say I'm abt 5-6 weeks xxxx

HayleBoppingAroundTheXmasTree Thu 13-Dec-12 21:56:14

FALSE ALARM! I'm still in.

kbaby unfortunately a lot of gps don't get it or the need for an early scan. if you can afford it go private'. I had an early scan at 7 weeks as I was admitted with HG and it showed a strong hb so I was confident about my 12 week scan only to be told baby had died at 9 weeks. so personally.I don't know if I'd want an early scan. I'll cross that bridge when we come to it...

111007kbaby Thu 13-Dec-12 22:04:05

Hi ye I'm in two minds mayb I should just hang on 4 th 12 week scan I'm just so confused and scared I'm trying not to stress I had a early scan with my daughter she is six now <3 but feels like a life time ago I don't rember nothing lol I was 6-7 weeks and seen, her heart flicker. Confused that wat I am. How long b4 your period is? Xxx

HayleBoppingAroundTheXmasTree Thu 13-Dec-12 22:10:55

just see how you go maybe, you may feel more confident this time, or less so.

AF due Saturday but expecting anytime now.

111007kbaby Thu 13-Dec-12 22:14:47

Oooh well let's hope it don't come at all. Ye I thi k I'm g
