Hop, skip and a jump. I've arrived! I've just realised that I forgot my age on the stats list; I'm 30, but I don't want to start clogging up the top of the thread just doing one little update!

Don't like being on cycle 20; if I don't get a BFP by the end of 2013 by number of cycles trying will be bigger than my age. confused and sad

Tallyra Sat 16-Mar-13 15:12:53

The shuttle was great, can't believe I managed not to use it last time. Sausage man really was quite accommodating :p

Pipbin Sat 16-Mar-13 15:23:21

Does the last thread win the prize for the quickest filling up thread ever?

Tallyra Sat 16-Mar-13 15:27:25

Hmm. Just had some biltong then realised I probably shouldn'[t if I'm pg. Oops. Not sure I want to stop eating it though.

barkingtreefrog Sat 16-Mar-13 15:38:32

Just marking my spot on the shiny new thread smile. I'll update my details after the weekend or I'll just have to do it again!
When did you start trying Boodle ?

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 15:51:45

I've never seen a faster thread pib but I'm not sure what it was like in the olden days before I was a berry!

Boodleandherpotofwonderfulness Sat 16-Mar-13 15:53:49

Barking, is it weird to say even I'm not sure any more?! I started using fertility friend in November 2011 and that's what I base my 20 cycles on. However, if I'm honest with myself, DH and I had binned off contraception well before that. I don't want to consider the possibility that I might be a lot closer to cycle 30 than cycle 20 though. <Buries head in sand.>

<Realises she hasn't finished and removes head from sand.> I rationalise it by thinking back to early, naïve TTC days when I thought spotting was CD1, which was then making me think I was 3 days further into the cycle than I really was. Given that I also tend to ovulate a little later than average (CD15-17), I suspect that our DTD efforts were premature in the early months.

That is what I shall keep telling myself. <Inserts head firmly back into sand.>

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 15:56:30

Hi can I become a berry too! Alex, 31, ttc since Dec 2011, cycle 1 of clomid, 10dpo, BFP due any time in the next few days!

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 16:12:10

Hi <Alex> and welcome! Any symptoms? (I'm obsessed with symptoms)

Frogcatcher Sat 16-Mar-13 16:14:16

Hi everyone welcome alex. Thought I'd better hop on & off the sausage shuttle quickly before DP gets home which is any minute now. I don't want to have to explain yet again that I am not having an affair by phone. Two BFPs in a week on the last thread so lets hope the berry luck & law of sod continues!

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 16:14:47

Boodle your bfp date isn't on the stats either... Tut tut.
I, disgustingly, am still in Pj bottoms and a jumper and have not left the sofa since I got up shock however DH has now gone to the pub so I have am thinking about a bath and going to join him for an exciting lime and soda!

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 16:15:22

frog your poor neglected OH!

barkingtreefrog Sat 16-Mar-13 16:23:01

Boodle was just wondering how far ahead of me you were as I'm at the end of cycle 15 but some of them have been 37 days long so I get fewer cycles in the same time frame!!
I have been so light since coming off the pill that I honestly can't tell the difference between spotting and AF. I just count the first sign of red stuff as CD1 as I really don't have a clue. I could probably cope without tampons for the whole duration as I'm on the minis, and most days that's too much! I might have one heavier day, but even that I would still classify as light, and there's no pattern to where the heavier day falls.

Cavort Sat 16-Mar-13 16:35:55

Merk <butts in> make sure you don't have your bath too hot. No higher than normal body temperature grin

Tallyra Sat 16-Mar-13 16:43:25

I had a ridiculously hot bath the other day so it can't be that bad!

Thunderbuns Sat 16-Mar-13 16:44:22

Hi all. Marking place on shiny new thread.

Congrats on line tal, sounds like a good idea to get yourself to a specialist ASAP?

Anyone else watching the rugby?

Bunnygirlie Sat 16-Mar-13 16:57:52

Hey berries, sorry I've been MIA, hope you all missed me!

I am in one heck of grumpy mood, irrationally emotional and wanna cry, and what is the very important reason for this I hear you cry, a dress, I don't have a nice dress to wear to a posh do tonight because eBay is crap and the one I ordered is too big and I don't like any of the others I have! Nearly cried in front of my folks and threw a strop saying I don't wanna go! If I don't shake this mood before I go out (in a dress I hate) I will have a miserable night and DH will hate me for being a whingebag!

I haven't eaten chocolate all month so now I may just go and gorge!

Bunnygirlie Sat 16-Mar-13 16:58:29

God what a whiner I am, maybe I should have stayed missing!

Tallyra Sat 16-Mar-13 16:59:46

Eat chocolate bunny. If you ever need it, it sounds like it's now.

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 17:01:28

bunny there is nothing worse overlook the slight exaggeration than not having the right thing to wear, I regularly have strips about it. It doesn't solve your dilemma I'm afraid, could you borrow something?

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 17:04:25

I have never regularly had a strip, clearly I meant a strop ffs

Bunnygirlie Sat 16-Mar-13 17:26:04

Having a strip has made me smile, which I needed.

Sorry for being a moaning old cow, I'm just usually so organised, I guess my mind has been on other things (yes I am blaming the berries lol)

<ducks from the attack of sausages>

barkingtreefrog Sat 16-Mar-13 17:37:31

I suggest taking Merkin's advice and have a strip. Then you'll only be wearing the not so perfect dress for a short amount of time anyway.

Happy to help grin.
