Hello - starting a new one as the old one filled up.....

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

twinklestar2 Thu 14-Feb-13 22:33:03

I'm going to allow myself to symptom spot! I'm 9 DPO (if I believe the monitor). I had sore boobs yesterday and today my wine tastes really, really weird like its fizzy. Oh says it doesn't taste weird. It might be because I've really cut back on booze or.......

RedRobin1 Thu 14-Feb-13 22:54:45

Ooooo I am going to get a little excited for you winkle
Perhaps its tasting weird because you are.........knocked up smilefx sore boobage is a good sign.

I am curious as to where I am in my cycle but I haven't got a clue. I know AF arrived on 2nd or 3rd feb but no idea when I OVed or even if I have. Nice to not know for a change.

twinklestar2 Thu 14-Feb-13 23:14:32

I'm due on around the same day as I go to fertility specialist next week. Wouldn't it be ironic if I didn't need the appt? please please please

RedRobin1 Thu 14-Feb-13 23:29:03

That would be a good story winkle wishing and praying it happens for you.

Weirdly my next period is also due around the same date as my fertility clinic appt on 5th march. although we can get DH's SA results from GP this week we haven't booked any appts with GP yet. DH and I aren't keen on finding out SA results yet. Blissfully happy being unaware. Whatever will be will be.

twinkle really hope you join the long list of women who get knocked up just as they go for a fertility app

Alexandra6 Fri 15-Feb-13 08:20:49

Ooh sore boobage is def a good sign!

Good luck with the SA results red I remember waiting for those, awful, all was fine with his side of things in the end - but one thing I read, is that even if SA results aren't good, it's often not a permanent thing and can be improved with diet/less booze etc. Fingers crossed for you anyway, and I keep hearing stories about people getting pg just before a fertility app too!

I finally got my AF on day 42 (romantic Valentines treat for me hey!) I'm pleased as it could have been a longer wait and now I can start clomid tomorrow

Thingymajigs Fri 15-Feb-13 08:42:33

I was the same Alex. I hated waiting for the SA results. DP had always been convinced he was infertile so we were very nervous. It didn't help that they kept on delaying the results for days on end. In the end the results came back OK, not amazing but fine. We were so relieved.
Good luck with the SA results red. I admire your outlook on everything. I tried to be calm but failed miserably.
Dtd began yesterday. There is no way we are missing an early O this cycle.

RedRobin1 Fri 15-Feb-13 08:56:44

Thanks thingy and alex we are waiting for his second SAs. The first had poor morphology and anti sperm antibodies. His count and motility was above average and excellent but morpho and asa was bad. He's been on vitamins and supplements for 3 months and had a repeat SA to see if anything had changed.

Thing is I am dreading the SA and so is DH just incase the result is not what we expect we might get really stressed over it like last time and I want this month to be a calm one so not rushing into getting the results.

twinklestar2 Fri 15-Feb-13 09:16:46

Good luck with OH's results, red

Sorry she got you Alex.

How u feeling today when?

Alexandra6 Fri 15-Feb-13 09:56:19

Don't worry, I don't think I ovulate naturally so I was really looking forward to AF coming so I could start on clomid! Trying not to get my hopes up too much about it working smile

RedRobin1 Fri 15-Feb-13 18:05:15

I need some motivation to not pee on an opk! Help! I feel like caving and finding out where I am in my cycle. Just gotten very broody today. Didn't last very long with relaxing. I don't want to know as I am enjoying sex more without having OV at the back of my mind but weirdly OV is always at the back of my mind. Arrrrrghhhhh! Must-stay-strong.

Thingymajigs Fri 15-Feb-13 18:45:10

Don't do it red! You will only regret it later just like I have after eating cheeseburger and fries. I feel like a right fatty. You can definitely get through this cycle without monitoring ovulation. I'm not temping at all this month, I'm just going by CM so you need to be my role model. Don't pee on anything!

resipsa Fri 15-Feb-13 19:44:45

So, I shouldn't tell you that the CB digi 20 pack is only (only? Yup TTC makes you lose the plot) £23 rather than £30-40...

On day 2 of soy and worried as did very non-lawyer thing and read the warnings after taking it yesterday. Now thinking I might have screwed up a fairly normal cycle. When + winkle did you notice any side effects?

In other news, have either of you got any updates???

RedRobin1 Fri 15-Feb-13 20:03:46

Thanks I haven't peed yet but thingy I have eaten a large tub of Chinese and feel like a fat chubby pig now. It was soooo good though.

RedRobin1 Fri 15-Feb-13 20:06:37

Wow £23 pounds res! That is def a lot of money. I am monitoring cm and seems to be very ewcmy for the last few days. So hoping I have OVed early.

Oh and I have peed, just not on any sticks grin

weechops Fri 15-Feb-13 21:07:21

I'm £23 lighter now thanks res smile. Only had a couple left from last month and wasn't going to bother this month since dh is away, but what the hell I need my fix smile still feeling a bit fragile but getting back to normal I think.

twinklestar2 Fri 15-Feb-13 22:12:25

Still got heavy boobs and sore nips - who knows what it means?! Off for an early night so good night all x

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Fri 15-Feb-13 22:14:43

alex good luck with clomid, hope it does for you what soy did for me

resipsa I didn't get much in the way if side effects, maybe a slight headache but nothing much really. Best of luck with it.

red glad you enjoyed the Chinese and well done for avoiding the opks.

winkle I'm feeling ok, I am burping a lot which is very attractive, this started on Wed. I am really hoping it is a good sign as I burped all the way through dd's pregnancy.

Haven't poas today. Think I am going to try a first response in the morning. If the levels haven't gone up its all over.

Alexandra6 Fri 15-Feb-13 22:22:44

Thanks when

Sorry if I missed something, but won't the line darkness just depend on how hydrated you are? Fingers crossed everything goes well for you. I didn't know burping was a symptom! A friend of mine gets nose bleeds and massive boobs. I'm learning so much lately! Hopefully I'll be a burping, double D nosebleeder soon wink

RedRobin1 Fri 15-Feb-13 22:23:22

Happy burping away when

winkle for you I hope it means what you have been wishing for so long. Fx.

Good to know you are feeling bit better wee I am missing my opk fix.

Alexandra6 Fri 15-Feb-13 22:26:07

By the way I bought those 20 CB digi packs earlier on amazon just this morning. Made sure to change it from my work address to home address. Have never had a positive on them so think I might get through quite a few with clomid excitement

kittykatsforever Sat 16-Feb-13 07:39:40

Oh winkle, this is interesting as you never mention symptoms, fx so tightly this is a good thing!!
Red well done on the will power, I love poas too much to have given up!
Alex I met a girl after dd who had got pregnant first round of clomid, I've heard really good things about it, she also got pregnant within a few months of having her ds naturally so just something to be aware of, I think it was a shock moment! She never made it back to work before the next was born

Thingymajigs Sat 16-Feb-13 10:02:01

It's not like you to mention symptoms twinkle, I'm getting quite excited for you. I hope this is your month.
How are you feeling now when?
I've woken up with a nasty head cold which means DP is now in charge of cooking a roast, looking after the kids and food shopping. I feel sick just thinking of letting go of all that control. I've decided to just go with it and hope for the best.

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Sat 16-Feb-13 10:15:44

winkle how are those symptoms coming on?

I've poas again today, it's very slightly darker but not reassuringly so. Far more reassuring was the fact I was very nearly sick this morning. I was hungry and last time I was pregnant with dd being hungry made me puke.

RedRobin1 Sat 16-Feb-13 10:28:49

Weirdly happy you are puking when also the fact that the line is even slightly darker is good as hcg must be rising.

Good luck with the clomid alex have you started taking it already? A work colleague of mine told me she was trying for 3 years and finally fell pregnant on her first round of clomid. Seems like a magic pill to me.
