Elektra83 Mon 14-Jan-13 20:19:29

Can I join please?

Ahh Bearface your post to Roofio made me want to give you a cuddle! Have a biscuit

roofio87 Mon 14-Jan-13 20:42:19

thanks Sparkle and Bearface its always nice to hear stories about people who have managed to conceive after chemo!!
I'm not using any O test or anything, just taking it relaxed for now and seeing how it goes, just having lots of sex!! the BF seems happy with that approach!!

I agree setayharas the whole TTC has been stressful. It's the not knowing I think drives me crazy. Hi Elektra83 smile

setayharas Mon 14-Jan-13 21:05:26

Wouldn't it b nice of a little light lit up or a little bell rang of you dtd worked so you knew straight away

Bearface Tue 15-Jan-13 16:00:45

Ah thanks Elektra. Nom, nom <munching on the biccie>

Setayharas - if you could just create that as a gadget I think you'd make mega bucks. You could take it on Dragon's Den. I'd buy one! Although not so good if you're in a meeting when you actually conceive! Haw haw! grin P.S. just worked out your name - I always thought it was a bit odd, but it's just clicked! wink

setayharas Tue 15-Jan-13 16:08:52

Haha you figured it's just my name? I'm so uninventive. Is this where u tell me u know me in real life lol?

I'll get designing the device straight away!

Bearface Tue 15-Jan-13 16:23:11

Ha ha! It's only taken me a few months! wink No - I don't know you in RL.

I'd like to place the first order for the all new pregnancy test! Plus I'm first in line for some baby dust this evening please Sparkle.

Sparkle002 Tue 15-Jan-13 19:24:26

Hello Bearface baby dust your way smile

Sparkle002 Tue 15-Jan-13 19:26:16

How is everyone doing tonight? Welcome all new members, thanks for joining the waiting train.

tillyann2013 Tue 15-Jan-13 19:36:50

I'm fed up, def need some pma. On the 2ww (again!) hmm
I was supposed to start iui this month but because day 1 was 27th dec, I missed the boat to get the baseline scan done. I wish the silly nurse could know what it feels like when she says 'just give us a call next month'. Hey ho, could murder a glass of wine wine or a bottle! but we are having a dryathlon this month.

How are you all doing?

soontobeburns Tue 15-Jan-13 19:50:01

Sorry bear just saw your reply now blush been ttc for 33 months and seen fertility specialist who said its due to my OHs low sperm count and it would be unlikely to conceive without ivf. Need to lose 5 stone before I can have it.

Soph80 Tue 15-Jan-13 20:24:25

We all really need to start some positive thinking! Me included!!!! :-)

Roofio, did you freeze any embryos? x

roofio87 Tue 15-Jan-13 20:57:04

soph80 no I didn't have time to have my implant removed and harvest the eggs etc before I needed my treatment to start!!
hopefully will be able to do it naturally!! smile

Soph80 Tue 15-Jan-13 21:20:04

Well I wish you every success! Have you actually started ttc or just talking about it? x

roofio87 Tue 15-Jan-13 22:00:09

started ttc but only really just this.month so very early days yet!!

HopefulFairy Tue 15-Jan-13 23:14:25

Hi all

Just joined MN as could do with some support from fellow TTCers. Have been TTC for a few months now. So desperate for a baby+feel like it is taking over my life! My best friend has been TTC for a while+got her BFP a couple of months ago. So pleased for her (esp as she has suffered 2 M/C) but finding myself getting more envious+less supportive as the weeks go by. Am I a terrible person?!

Experienced a chem preg last month which shook me up a little. Trying to see the silver lining+believe that it shows everything's working+we're able to conceive but can't help being paranoid that it must be a sign of an underlying prob. Am I the only one who struggles to be optimistic?

Sorry for life story! Feels good to share though

Bearface Wed 16-Jan-13 15:40:00

Ah, but you are called HopefulFairy - so you should be optimistic, no? smile Hopeful - I definitely struggle with staying positive (read my post on page 1), but I think it's quite natural as time goes by to feel that way. I guess you just have to carry on trying and be positive when you can. I think it's good to give in to the negativity demons every once on a while, have a bit of a meltdown, get it all out of your system and then pick yourself up again. Maybe I'm different to everyone else though. I find that if I don't do this then I would just keep bottling it all up and would end up feeling awful. But that's me personally.

Soontobe - I remember you from another thread. How is the weight loss going then? Have you had any success? Have you made any changes to get yourself going on the weight loss? Good luck to you. We'll be cheering you on!

Hey everyone - I wonder if anyone can help me.

I came off the pill (Yasmin) at beginning of October. Proper AF arrived on 3rd Nov. 2nd AF arrived 1st Dec. The next AF arrived very late on 13th Jan.

So I've had a 28 day cycle followed by a 42!

Just wondering, how am I supposed to know when my fertile period, ovulation and AF are now due?

I have an app but it works on averages and predicts this month will be a 35 day cycle. Is this likely?


Bearface Wed 16-Jan-13 16:12:25

Bluefreckles - I'm not sure, but I think that your cycles can be like that for a few months after coming off the pill. It may take a little while to stabilise yet. Sorry . . .

bluefreckles Wed 16-Jan-13 16:16:13

I hope its still possible to get upduffed?
