Didn't want to start another...but I really hope this is the last thread for all of us.

red I had a bfn on 10dpo.... - could easily be too early! Fx crossed for you smile (and legs, toes, eyes...!)

It's a boy grin

red fatas is right 10dpo is a bit on the early side.

Thingymajigs Sun 27-Jan-13 07:01:36

Aww. That's lovely news. Congrats to your cousin. smile
Still plenty of time for a BFP red. Hope you had a good night.
My temp has gone up today. Which means I ovulated yesterday on cd 12 two days earlier than I was expecting. I was having awful ovulation pains and EWCM so we did dtd last night but now I'm worried as we only managed cd 6, 8, 9 and 12 and this morning hopefully even though it'll be too late. Oh well, at least I won't get my hopes up too high.

Congrats to your cousin when, a lovely boy gringringrin
Thingy it sounds like you have we'll covered the bases with dtd, I'd have been pleased with that effort!!

Thingymajigs Sun 27-Jan-13 08:21:04

Hi kitty, Yeah, I guess it isn't that bad. I think it's just because it caught me by surprise. I thought I'd have two more days of dtd but what's done is done. I'm now going to continue with my relaxed cycle knowing its out of my hands. smile (this will probably only last a week). You having a good weekend?

kittykatsforever Sun 27-Jan-13 09:01:46

Do you just temp thingy or use opk's aswell? Unual to come 2 days early but good in the sence that its less time to wait!
It's sickness central in the kitten house, we've all got colds sad

Thingymajigs Sun 27-Jan-13 09:13:18

Just temping because I normally get a big ovulation dip and ovulation pains for a few days which gives me plenty of warning (except for this cycle). I gave up on OPK's a few months back because I'd get a digital positive but not ovulate until 4 days later.
Aww, hope you feel better soon. Nothing worse than everyone being poorly at once especially because its usually us who end up looking after everyone else.

LeenHS Sun 27-Jan-13 09:16:57

Another day another round of obsessive sympton spotting. AF due tomorrow.

Thingy that sounds like a fine effort on the dtd. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. It's always a bit of a relief when you know you can't do any more!! The first week after ov is borderline relaxing

Thingymajigs Sun 27-Jan-13 09:24:50

Yes, that's how I'm looking at it too. I broke the process down last week and I realised the only stressful parts are waiting to ovulate and waiting for a BFP/AF so I'm trying to make sure I just relax for the most part. There's no point letting it take over my entire life.
I've got my fingers crossed for you leen. What kind of symptoms have you got?

weechops Sun 27-Jan-13 09:59:06

Aw congrats to your cousin when smile

Leen fingers crossed for you.

I got a smiley on the opk today. If I count cd1 as the mc starting, then this is cd20. But dh isn't home til Friday! Its not looking good for this cycle is it? sad

LeenHS Sun 27-Jan-13 10:06:09

feels like bad pms symptoms. Cramping on and off etc. The only thing that is very slightly out of place is a weird sore throat that comes and go's - I keep thinking it's a cold but it never turns into one. But then I think I'm reading into things and it's probably just a sore throat!

That's a really good idea with dividing the cycle up. I try so hard not to let it take over my life. I'm ok most of the time... just the last week before AF (and when someone else announces their pregnant). DH keeps catching me on my phone looking at symptom websites and says its not good for me. He's probably right.

sambrads Sun 27-Jan-13 10:19:55

hey everyone can i join ?
hey leen nice to see a familier face grin

really hope this is the month for us all !!!

TTC 4th DC
on CD 18

RedRobin1 Sun 27-Jan-13 12:08:19

Aww congratulations when that's fab news.

thingy you should have covered it will for OV. Have you had 3 days consistent temp rises? Mine started to rise at cd12 but fell again and rose at cd17 then consistently. So it could be gearing up to OV but might not and do it later. Either way I think you've got it covered well.

leen the cramping and sore throat sounds promising. Fx for you.

SunshineOutdoors Sun 27-Jan-13 12:09:01

Marking place so I can keep track of all the bfps that WILL be happening soon smile

Thingymajigs Sun 27-Jan-13 12:44:44

Weechops That must be such a pain having to hope your dh will be home for ovulation. I really hope it works out for you this cycle.
leen fingers crossed that those symptoms lead to a BFP. It's Sod's law that early pregnancy symptoms feel exactly like PMS symptoms.
Hi sam smile I'm trying for my third DC, big age gaps for mine of 13 and 10 years if I conceive this year.
Red This is the first day of a temp rise. It went from 36.27 yesterday to 36.61 this morning. Normally my temperatures rise very slowly after O and dip to 35 on day of ovulation so it's a bit weird this cycle. I'm wondering if this is Vitex at work. Either way its done and out of my hands now. How are you doing red, did you have a good night?

RedRobin1 Sun 27-Jan-13 13:27:03

I am doing much better today and nursing a hangover from too much wine.

Just keep dtd just incase it falls to 35 again.

DH and I had drunken sex last night and I was so happy - had almost forgotten how much fun spontaneous unplanned sex was.

Thingymajigs Sun 27-Jan-13 16:22:35

It's good to let go and have fun now and again. Hope your head feels better now. Oh and I will do, thanks. Everyone here is so lovely and supportive, it really helps with this TTC madness.

twinklestar2 Sun 27-Jan-13 16:38:45

Glad you're feeling a bit better red.

I woke up today feeling better too. Have got loads done and feel better for not moping around the house.

Congrats to your cousin when!

Thingy - sounds like you dtd at exactly the right time. Fx for you

Hope AF stays away Leen!!

Welcome Sam smile

LeenHS Sun 27-Jan-13 19:36:16

Thanks everyone. Red, so pleased your feeling better. I think with this ttc stuff you have to feel really low to feel better if you know what I mean. No AF yet but don't 'feel pregnant' whatever that feels like....
Twinkle totally agree that getting up and doing is the best remedy for feeling low (and some wine)....
Hi sam... V nice to see a familiar face....

resipsa Sun 27-Jan-13 19:58:32

Ah, when a boy for your cousin smile (but what do you do with a boy; I have no idea).

Hi kitty + sunshine. Hope you are both doing well.

red you and me both - altho these days I get a mini-hangover when I drink next to nothing. Glad DD remembered it was the weekend and slept until 8.30 (angel).

Hi wee try not to stress about the dates this month cause you probably need a bit of time (but I totally get wanting to be P again ASAP too).

Thingy that's 5 times in 7 days at JUST the right times. You're covered!

Hi leen - if anyone had told me 3 years ago that I'd be dividing my months into two lots of waiting (for O then AF), I'd have thought they were mad but here we are. And I HATE waiting!

Hi sam and welcome.

Last but definitely not least, glad you've had a good weekend winkle.

Phew, that's me done until tomorrow. On CD15 here with O likely on Tues so let the DTD commence (and pls, pls, pls let this be our month as it's a year since the last unsuccessful P sad).

resipsa Sun 27-Jan-13 19:59:17

Oh, before I go hi too to red and fatas!

twinklestar2 Sun 27-Jan-13 22:08:05

Good luck res for shag week.

I'm on cd4. I'm taking soy this cycle too to see if it helps. Hasn't helped before but you never know!

Had a lovely long bath this morn, then went for a walk and brought a few things for the house. Hub has been doing some DIY and I've been having a good old clear out. I've packed a healthy lunch for tomorrow, got my gym bag ready and I've packed a make up bag so I can start up look after myself and feel like me again smile

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Sun 27-Jan-13 22:38:49

Hello all, especially sam nice to have a new face.

Well operation shag more is a dismal failure so far. Dh has been ill since Wed and I have been beyond busy at work so no dtd. I am on cd9 and am currently sat in a hotel room with no access to sperm till tues night (aka cd 11).

It's not looking too good this month as I really don't know what is up with dh. He seems to have some weird viral thing that's just washing him out. Plus I've taken soy isoflavones so I am likely to ov earlier than normal.

RedRobin1 Mon 28-Jan-13 11:50:07

Fx for you this month res go jump DH and get shagging smile

grin @ first glance of when's sentence "am currently sat in a hotel room with no access to sperm"

Fx CD11 should still have you covered over OV when.

How are the temps looking thingy - OV confirmed?

When are you due leen - will be good to have a testing buddy if AF is late?

Hi sam welcome to the thread.

No news my end, waiting till Friday / Sat for AF to show up or POAS whichever comes first. Don't feel pregnant at all.

sambrads Mon 28-Jan-13 12:52:38

hello ladies thank you all so much for the warm welcome grin

when you made me laugh with post but I do think you will be ok and still within your OV dates. Hope DH feels better soon.

red and leen fingers crossed for BFP this weekend grin

Ladies I have a question for yas. my last AF was 10th January and before that was 10th of December so my cycles are longer about 32 days. I have been watching my cycle and I know I ovulated day 13 til 15 of this cycle but i wont be able to test until next sunday. should i not be ovulating later?
I hope I have covered enough days. DTD day 9,10,11,12,13,15,16,17 and 18 should i keep going or do you think i have it covered?
I am TTC my 4th child and I really should know what im doing but my cycles have never beena as long.
doese anyone have any symptoms?
Hope everyone is doing ok today
