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.

LeenHS Wed 30-Jan-13 09:13:26

Wow you are all so lovely. It makes me well up!!

red I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you so much.

sam thank you! It was quite an impulse test. If AF doesn't show I'll test again but first thing in the morning.

As for seal chat... DH always says to me: "you only want me for my sperm"... I say noooooo not all. Inside I'm like, pretty much.

LeenHS Wed 30-Jan-13 09:13:57

Can you tell I just learnt how to bold!!

weechops Wed 30-Jan-13 11:03:51

Go res! grin

leen really sorry for the bfn but you're not out til af shows so keep hoping.

Hi all and welcome to newbies.

I broke my dry jan and ended up getting drunk really easily and crying about babies.

So no more booze for me as it doesn't help.

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Wed 30-Jan-13 12:16:26

Oh bless you twinkle, crying about babies sad

[leen] it is a bit odd af has still not arrived. Def do another test in the morning if it still isn't here. I am desperately trying not to treat dh as the sperm bank, I keep complementing him on his performance. Hopefully he thinks I just want his body but in reality I mostly want the sperm.

I feel quite bad writing that as I do enjoy sex with him, I am just a bit obsessed with ttc at the moment.

Oh winkle the evil booze - great when it exacerbates a good mood or you're really bored with the company, otherwise a disaster. Think positive.

resipsa Thu 31-Jan-13 08:54:29

red any news?

resipsa Thu 31-Jan-13 09:16:00

Do any of you do "temping"? I did it this month to try something new and don't know if my figures show ovulation has happened. The results were 36.1 on Sun, 36.1 on Mon, 35.7 on Tues (+OPK), 36 on Weds and 36.3 today. Do you think the rise to 36.3 is the rise I should see? TIA!

fatasbutter Thu 31-Jan-13 09:46:10

Hi everyone. Looks as if I will be back with you lovely ladies very soon... x

resipsa Thu 31-Jan-13 09:59:30

fatas what's happened?

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Thu 31-Jan-13 10:01:45

fatas you ok?

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Thu 31-Jan-13 10:03:49

resipsa sorry I can't advise on temping. I tried a bit when trying for dd but I am not very with it in the morning and kept forgetting to check my temp first thing.

RedRobin1 Thu 31-Jan-13 10:16:15

fatas hope you are okay? what happened? x

res I temp + use OPKs to give me confidence that I do ovulate. Most of the time my +ve OPKs have coincided with temp rises. Your temperature must rise for 3 days to confirm OV. Try again tomorrow morning to see if its at 36.3 or higher. If yes, then it means you OVed on Tues when it dipped to 35.7 - hope that makes sense.

no news my end, feel certain AF will arrive sad

twinklestar2 Thu 31-Jan-13 10:27:49

So sorry to see you back fatas sad

resipsa Thu 31-Jan-13 10:52:43

Thanks red and my fingers remain crossed!

weechops Thu 31-Jan-13 10:52:58

fatas oh no are you ok? <big unmnetty hug>

fatasbutter Thu 31-Jan-13 11:01:42

Just back from hospital. Reassurance scan not so reassuring!! Possible ectopic possible blighted ovum. Have to wait 48h for repeat hcg unless I get tummy pain etc (fx I don't!!!) but essentially not good news. Was prepared. Not a shock but just wish I could know now and not have to wait!! (As everyone always wishes!!!)

Grrrr stupid body...

fatasbutter Thu 31-Jan-13 11:02:48

Fx red for af staying away! Some good news would be nice smile

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Thu 31-Jan-13 11:15:11

fatas that's awful, I'm so sorry. Hope you are ok and it all gets resolved quickly.

red I've got my fingers crossed too. How many days post ov are you?

RedRobin1 Thu 31-Jan-13 11:34:45

15dpo when Just feel nothing but the all too familiar AF signs.

sorry again fatas hope DH is around to give you a big hug and cuddle tonight.

Thingymajigs Thu 31-Jan-13 11:48:58

So sorry fatas. The waiting must be awful.sad
Hi res, I agree with red. It looks like you ovulated on the date you got your +OPK. Mine usually dips that low when I ovulate too.
Good luck red, hope AF stays away this time.

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Thu 31-Jan-13 11:58:50

Red Hmm 15dpo? I hope you're wrong about af being on the way.

The soy isoflavones don't seem to have done much re my cycle. I have heard you can get lots more ewcm early on in your cycle - but it hasn't for me. I was also hoping for an increased sex drive, the jury's still out on that one. I'm having a lot of odd sex dreams but sex drive isn't very high in the day time.

At least I can reassure myself ov isn't about to start anytime soon and I haven't missed to boat.

RedRobin1 Thu 31-Jan-13 12:09:53

My luteal phase is 16 days when So I think she will come tomorrow.

Sex dreams, eh? wink

I am only dreaming of red spots. even in my dream yes! I dreamt I wiped and had lots of red spots and AF had arrived. Woke up to reality and thought argh! still waiting to find out.

res are you using Fertility Friend to track temps?

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Thu 31-Jan-13 12:18:14

Oh my god just read something really important via Dr Google should really be working but hey ho

Semen is thought to be important for implantation and embryo development. It's a bit new and there needs to be more trials but it is thought that sex after ovulation is important too.

I think the theory is that factors in the sperm encourage the uterine lining to accept the embryo and also help it develop. Why am I only finding this out now? If I knew this back in April I might not have had all those bloody chem pregs (assuming I actually did something out it that is).

Right operation shag - it's on. No more giving up post ov for me I'm going to keep going (maybe every 3-4 days post ov).

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Thu 31-Jan-13 12:20:05

red 16 days is a long time to wait. Still got my fx.

Maybe I should get dh to have sex with me while I'm asleep?
