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.

Sam I OV on cd17 (most times) and have a 32 day cycle but have had the odd cycle with OV at cd13. You've done well on the dtd so should have it covered. Do you use any OPKs? Fx for you too.

sambrads Mon 28-Jan-13 13:26:42

hey red no i dont use anything just know by my CM that im ovulating. do you use anything? i have heard so many different things about OV tests that I dont know if there any good or not.
It looks like im a sex mad maniac lol we dont normally DTD as much as I have a 6 month old baby we havent had much chance but the more time we made for eachother the more we realised we wanted to DTD if that makes sense? confused
When will you be testing?

weechops Mon 28-Jan-13 13:46:36

Sam if you want to try opk, I use the digital clear blue ones. You get a smiley face when you ov. Dead easy smile

sambrads Mon 28-Jan-13 13:54:08

weechops do you just pee on them first pee of the day? how many days do you get a smiley face in the month?

LeenHS Mon 28-Jan-13 15:33:00

Sam I think it sounds like you've done an excellent job. Sit back and wait one now!

Red, am due today. Dh wants me to leave testing as long as possible to save multiple upsets so am definitely going to try and wait till the weekend and possibly beyond. When do you think you might test. Would love a testing buddy. That is of course depending on if and when AF rears its ugly head, which feels like it could be soon.....

weechops Mon 28-Jan-13 16:27:44

sam you pee on them at the same time each day - I do 1st thing when I get up - I start poas around cd10 as my cycles have been going from 28 days to 35 days. Usually get a smiley around cd16 and sometimes goes onto day17 too. Buy them online though as you can get them cheaper on amazon (and refills there too)

Too scared to use AIBU so gonna ask you guys instead:
We were at a 2 yr old's party on Sat. His great grandma was there; pretty unsteady on her feet and using a cane. To cut a long story short, she ended up tipping half a cup of tea over my DD's head (she was carrying it from the kitchen area of a church hall, DD was on a ride-on going backwards, no one was paying too much heed as the place was full of toddlers - you get the picture). Thankfully, it wasn't too hot but if it has been we'd have been looking at permanent facial scarring. AIBU to have expected a "sorry" rather than a tut?

<delurks> def YANBU! Could have been a disaster!!

Ps I think anyone who posts on AIBU is mad - they are like a bunch of rabid dogs over there!

weechops Mon 28-Jan-13 18:09:33

AIBU is scary! I lurk on there a bit but would never actually post. I don't think my skin is thick enough for it.

And no, YANBU she should definitely have apologised to you and checked dd was ok. Old bat! (ageist I know but my elderly dad is pissing me off so I have no sympathy for oldies right now)

MrsBri Mon 28-Jan-13 18:17:18

Also de-lurks!

No, res, could have been so much worse. If she's that unsteady, somebody should have been fetching and carrying for her, especially bearing in mind it was a toddler's party.

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Mon 28-Jan-13 18:31:54

res YANBU could have been so much worse.

I've posted on AIBU a few times but only when I'm feeling very brave.

Still in the hotel but opks are very negative iykwim so I think I should have lots of time to dtd.

kittykatsforever Mon 28-Jan-13 18:56:33

Omg I can't believe anyone wouldn't be horrified if they had acidently caught a young child with even a warm drink I'm amazed! Yanbu at all what a horrible old lady and what on earth would you expect from a 2yr olds party!! My dd has pulled the dregs of my tea over her from the side cabinet and I was so angry with myself for not putting it completely out of reach and for seeing an accident, I'm always so careful around little ones with hot drinks

SunshineOutdoors Mon 28-Jan-13 19:13:19


Don't know if you remember my bad mother moment in Nov when dd grabbed the cup of tea I'd stupidly left in her reach. The burn on her arm was awful, you can still see a bit of a scar now, but I'm hoping that will fade. At the time I was glad it wasn't her head or face and that it was done in my care, because if someone else had done it I don't know how I'd have felt about them. So glad your lo was ok, that could have been awful. I'd have felt so bad if I'd done that to someone else's kid.

SunshineOutdoors Mon 28-Jan-13 19:14:11

Hi to you all by the way! <resumes lurking€

Thingymajigs Mon 28-Jan-13 19:17:02

Definitely not being unreasonable res. That could've been awful. I would have struggled to stop apologising.
red my temp has stayed up so I guess the Vitex gave me an early ovulation which happened when I started taking EPO too. I don't think we timed it well at all but an early ovulation means a shorter cycle so I can try again soon. How are you atm?
The waiting to test is the worst leen. I hope it goes quickly for you.
when it sounds like you have a cooperative ovulation this cycle. Not long till you get hold of the sperm (still giggling at that). grin

pixie0602 Mon 28-Jan-13 19:30:20

Hi all... I'm really new to all this and tbh it's really overwhelming confused was wondering if there was any advice you lovely ladies would have for me. Feel a little daft as only been ttc for a month but dh is quite a bit older than me x. Good luck all xxsmile

RedRobin1 Mon 28-Jan-13 19:35:14

Yates def not being unreasonable res DH had a similar incident happen to him when he was 8yrs old and an old bat spilled very hot tea on him. He had to be stripped and put under ice cold water. Had bad burn marks on his stomach and the scars are still there. She should have been more careful around children running around! Makes me mad to this day!

Leen I will be testing fri or sat if AF doesn't show up. 12dpo currently and bored out of my mind.

RedRobin1 Mon 28-Jan-13 19:37:19

You are*

sambrads Mon 28-Jan-13 21:15:03

res i would be livid if it was my DC that that happened to. The old lady shouldnt have been carrying cups of tea if she wasnt capable of doing it i would even be nervous carrying cups of tea round kids.
can i ask what AIBU stands for ? is that a really stupid question? confused
how is everyone tonight?
leen cant believe ya havent tested yet you have great will power grin
i am on my 2ww and its driving me crazy already sad

twinklestar2 Mon 28-Jan-13 22:35:55

I would be livid too! Silly old woman!

resipsa Tue 29-Jan-13 07:51:28

Ha, ha! Knew I could rely on you not to roast me (no pun intended, poor wet DD who didn't even cry when it happened hmm). You've made me feel better as others there (1) seemed to think we over-reacted a little when, frankly, we barely reacted at all to avoid ruining the party and (2) didn't agree that it's for the adult (however old) to be responsible and not to carry hot drinks around kids if not capable. Phew, off my chest, thanks all!

resipsa Tue 29-Jan-13 07:55:37

Sam AIBU - am I being unreasonable - a board on MN for the brave only!

resipsa Tue 29-Jan-13 07:57:52

Ha, ha also at the grads de-lurking to answer. Feeling protective at all? Lovely feeling, isn't it <sighs>?

resipsa Tue 29-Jan-13 08:00:00

Hi Pixie and welcome. We'll drive you insane in weeks if you're not there already.

pixie0602 Tue 29-Jan-13 08:27:40

Resipa.. Thanks for the welcome... I'm feelin super stressed out what with day counting and everythin... Had a copper coil for 2.5 years and am wondering whether I should wait a few months to make sure I know I'm having regular cycles or whether to guesstimate for a couple of months .. Hope things are goin well with you xx
