I couldn't bring myself to call her a bitch, we still need her help! Come on ladies, let's do this thing....

Morning my lovelies!

jbrd I agree about MN announcements being nicer and particularly ones on this thread. I wonder if it's also about seeing the journey that people are on rather than seeing an announcement and thinking that it's just come really easily to them. Good luck with the job hunt- being in the wrong job is not a good situation to be in at all, hope you find something else soon.

pink ^still* no af?? You going to wait til the 22nd ish and be my cycle buddy? Have you poas again?

Really really sorry shell, that sucks. I concede that af is a bitch but mother nature as a whole I'm sticking up for. Today anyway.

JanieLovesHerThreeLeggedCat Fri 08-Feb-13 10:00:48

sorry to hear that shell sad and on a friday too. how inconsiderate. by the time mine should come next month we'll probably be cycle buddies. fx for next month x

and i totally agree that finding out about BFPs on here are way better than in real life. we've all been through similarly tough times and been there for each other and totally know what the whole TTC experience is like. Apart from the circumstances, I'm so glad / lucky to have you all.

God that sounded a bit soppy ha!

JanieLovesHerThreeLeggedCat Fri 08-Feb-13 10:19:25

oh and also it seems my recent batch of cheapo internet opks are duds sad did 3 this morning and even the test line didn't come up.

any recommendations other than the mega ££ clearblue one? saw the CB one in tescos with 7 test strips but it was £17 (reduced from £19) is that a normal price for it?

IBelieveInPink Fri 08-Feb-13 11:07:00

Still no af!!! I am actually tempted to pee on one final stick. In my crazy calculations I worked out that IF the last time we dtd managed to catch, and IF implantation took the longest time it could take, I COULD get a BFP, and it would have been too early to catch last time I poas (5 days ago)
I am so heading for a fall here aren't I.

But, DH is whisking me away for a fancy weekend in a spa hotel. So, I need to poas just to make sure I can drink/go in sauna etc. you KNOW that af will appear tomorrow morning just in time to put me off swimming don't you!!!!!

Thundercatsarego Fri 08-Feb-13 11:08:34

pink. POAS immediately.

If you want to...

Thundercatsarego Fri 08-Feb-13 11:58:31

(This is me still not being very good at being stern)

IBelieveInPink Fri 08-Feb-13 12:09:48

Haha! I shall wait til the morning. Tbh, I am sure it will be a negative. Really really sure. I don't feel pg at all. But I don't feel like af is on her way either. Think I am just broken. Boo hiss.

SpanishLady Fri 08-Feb-13 12:51:24

Im keeping my fingers crossed for you Ibelieveinpink

Bakingtins Fri 08-Feb-13 13:06:34

IBIP I didn't (don't) feel pregnant this month either. Trying not to think that is a bad sign, but that all the 'pregnancy' signs I've had previous months have been more to do with PMS.
Go on, POAS....

Thundercatsarego Fri 08-Feb-13 13:12:56

Are you sure you don't want to poas now pink?

shellshock7 Fri 08-Feb-13 13:25:00

Go on pink do it do it do it ha ha

Right sorry but a mega me me me rant coming, stuck in work so here is the place grin

So so so p*ssed off, not even upset just angry. My AFs are legendarily bad, the pill makes tham manageable but I didn't go back on it after DS as knew we wanted another baby soon (DS was 8.5 months when I had the 2nd MC) they are awful and this is the first one since back from maternity leave so gotta work thru it...think night sweats, literally dripping then shivering...pain so bad I can hardly walk and am talking thu gritted teeth...people keep saying ah, its terrible isn't it thinking it's just a tooth ace...YES IT BLOODY WELL IS...and did I mention the vomitting, lovely!

And guess what, I shouldn't even be having an AF as I want to be pregnant...and not newly pregnant but 13 weeks pregnant like I should be. I endured two women in work flashing the 12 weeks scan pictures yesterday (one is gonna be a great grandmonther and is a good friend so I am obviously very happy for her) whilst feeling this ill and this p*ssed off, how do we not just burst into tears or scream I don't know. My one thought that is helping is at least its not as bad a time as the first MMC...what a sh*t thing to be using as a positive gggrrrrr

So this just sucks, sucks really badly, so there have that mother nature angry

IBelieveInPink Fri 08-Feb-13 13:47:39

Ooh you are all terrible encouragers!! I hope you are all here in the morning when I am sulking over yet another bfn. And no af.

shell impressive rant! Well done. Can you go home and get cosy on the sofa? Sounds like you need to. Poor you sad take lots of drugs, and as my friend said the other day- she is very good at advice- be as angry as you want. It helps.

CoffeeForSally Fri 08-Feb-13 14:19:57

pink of couse we will! <taunts with pee stick>

shell poor you, that sounds rotten. Have a good rage and get it all out.

Hm. I feel the need for a name change... hang on...

CoffeeandCremeEggs Fri 08-Feb-13 14:22:08

... ta da!

Thundercatsarego Fri 08-Feb-13 15:25:33

Ha! coffee! That's funny!

I haven't had a Creme egg yet but I have eaten an entire packet of biscuits since tues- is that a suitable substitute? They're the chocolate caramel ones. Now considering nipping out for a cake for the last but of Friday afternoon....

shell that is just shit and a very justifiable rant. Can you make yourself more comfortable? or is that a stupid question? surely you shouldn't be at work in so much pain and discomfort? You must be knackered on top of it all x

Hi all, just checking in. Af hopefully gone so can think about ttc this month. My bday's in November so would make a lovely present! Is the 'egg meets sperm' a technique I need to google? Feel I probably need to put some thought into it if I want this to be my bfp month.

Zeuxippe Fri 08-Feb-13 16:35:51

Sperm meets egg. Basically it just says dtd eod from cd8 but use opks for ten days from cd10. When you get a positive opk, dtd for the next 3 nights, miss one night then dtd one last time. I'm going to try it when I get af, if I can summon the energy!

Did anyone else just feel exhausted and achey for ages after mc?

grotbagz Fri 08-Feb-13 17:52:29

janie I use the cheapy ones from Asda like 2 for a quid or they're the same ones as in the £ shop - they show up pretty early too from the ones I did but very faint if early obviously - then just do the clear blue when you get a faint to double check! So much cheaper!

Also thanks everyone answering! May cut coffee out but it's my best friend, of all time.

grotbagz Fri 08-Feb-13 17:53:51

Just seen the coffee names as I scrolled up too haha!

grotbagz Fri 08-Feb-13 17:55:45

janie once again I'm being confusing - thought you meant pregnancy ones? I use the wilkinson ones 5 for a quid or two I think! Sorry again - gone mad clearly!

JanieLovesHerThreeLeggedCat Fri 08-Feb-13 18:07:02

Ha ha grotz sadly just opks for now!!! Xx

grotbagz Fri 08-Feb-13 18:34:33

janie i don't know why I'm allowed on the internet i really don't, but yes i use the wilkinson 5 pack! cheap and cheerful!

chocolateteabag Fri 08-Feb-13 22:50:29

Sorry AF got you too Shell, pretty damn sure that is what will be coming forth soon as I have mega period pains right now. Tried to stop myself hoping it was implantation bleeding, but after trailing to nothing yesterday and this morning, the bitch popped back this afternoon.

Will at least get to use the rest of my sticks in the CB Fertility Monitor, but if I get a BFP next time, will mean baby will be born in same month as DS. Is that a totally ridiculous thing to think of at a time like this or what!

AmelieRose Sat 09-Feb-13 08:50:58

Well I'm thoroughly confused! Thought my period was due this week (Tues) so as I'm technically late did a test and it came back negative. Have been having symptoms too clearly all in my mind - feeling sick and exhausted.

Had a v short bleed last week, just a little bit more than spotting really, was bright red - sorry TMI - and now wondering if that was my period. Any ideas or experiences of this?

And if it was AF, then apparently I might be quite fertile now. <runs off to wake DH up and demand we DTD immediately>

IBelieveInPink Sat 09-Feb-13 08:58:10

Well it is conclusive. Definitely bfn. So my body just needs time to sort itself out I think. Pah.

Still, spa trip now! Yay saunas and alcohol!
