Newbies very welcome provided they meet the entrance criteria (TTC #1, over 30, TTC for 3+months, must have a special pot, NO instadiffers) and bring a bouquet of sausages when they join!

Thanks Merkin OK I'm willing to believe this so desperate is she to ovulate... pray tell me more! I've decided I like my chart here for now so I've made it public for hawking at. I put in my +ve OPK on Monday and it's also decided I ov'd this week. How fab that would be!

<Waves to Alex and Sargasso>
Alex I see you're already peeing on sticks, you'll fit right in.

Oooh bunny enjoy your do and the strip later... it would work off the chocolate egg afterall though it may not salvage lent

My comeback for those who press me about children is nearly always something vague about storks visiting. lame Lurve lurve the 'are you saying I'm fat? comment <snort> Oh to master the art of the put down. If ttc does one thing for me, if not make a baby, I shall make it my mission to have more disdain.

Frogcatcher Sat 16-Mar-13 21:06:37

Right storks. Thanks cherry. Might vary it up with a cabbage patch occasionally!

Also forgot to mention that I chose my special pot today for when I move from the posh Boots POAS OPKs to my ICs - the large measuring cap from an appropriately named bottle of Persil Small & Mighty looked like just the ticket!

Frogcatcher Sat 16-Mar-13 21:11:16

Oh & I looked at your chart but was totally thrown by the Fahrenheit to start with let alone the fact that it wasn't FF. merkin is queen of charts so she will probably be less phased than me!

NotWithoutMyMerkin Sat 16-Mar-13 21:26:45

cherry I think you've O'd. Not sure your chart and I agree on the day but fingers crossed in 2 weeks you're back on track. Hoping your temps continue to rise tomorrow. It's hard TTC long term anyway but to not even be able to get started on it thanks to your cycle being all over the place must be awful, I really feel for you.
A fairy small and mighty cap sounds good but can it stand up on its own without spilling (iyswim)? At least it won't get mistaken for a pot for your OH to put his toothbrush in!

NotWithoutMyMerkin Sat 16-Mar-13 21:36:08

I am not having an exciting sat night... 3 lime and sodas and a curry and now back home on the sofa in my onsie watching a film. Middle age seems to have struck hard!!!

ILoveMyCats Sat 16-Mar-13 21:41:14

Sorry, just off the shuttle. Got distracted by the snack trolley.

ILoveMyCats, 31 ttc since sept 2012. Cycle 3 due to post-pill amenorrhea. Af any day.

cherrycoconut Sat 16-Mar-13 21:49:18

Fanks for looking at my chart guys, yes, the looongness of it is a bit depressing. I decided not to start it from the actual day of my last AF. The scrolling along to find the end would be just too tedious.

Frog the only reason it's in F is because I read tcoyf and all the examples were in F. Now I half wish I'd gone C but I don't suppose it really matters. Congrats on choosing your pot, liking the symbolism.

Merkin what day would you put O at? It only added the graphic when I put in the +ve OPK. longs for it to be true

Right, only 3 mins left on the rugby marathon; I may have to stop my chart preoccupation to put in some practice with DH...

happylass Sat 16-Mar-13 21:53:30

Evening all! Just marking my spot on lovely new thread. Off to catch up on end of last thread a sbeen out celebrating all day because Wales won the rugby!! grin

happylass Sat 16-Mar-13 23:01:24

Oops have I gone and killed the thread already?! Won't mention the R word again. Promise! Welcome to the newbies. Will update my stats when AF finally shows up (to be fair I'm not due until at least tomorrow but been feeling her approaching for days sad)

Tallyra Sat 16-Mar-13 23:12:24

don't worry happy , it's been quiet all evening. I've been cuddling on the sofa with the dog add the husband had gone to bed, got to be at work by 6.30 tomorrow, and 5.00 for the rest of next week. it's a surprise we actually manage to DTD much at all!

Frogcatcher Sat 16-Mar-13 23:23:20

I'm in bed. Tonight DP is watching MOTD downstairs rather than cricket. I think sport is why I am still TTC. I am just trying to stay awake until he gets here. If it wasn't shag week or fortnight depending on when O eventually happens & as yet a mystery then I'd just give up & go to sleep. At least his team won today so he should be in a good mood (despite the R word) wink

barkingtreefrog Sun 17-Mar-13 00:10:45

Just got in from another sober night in the pub!
merkin my main and obvious symptom of AF appearing the next day is irrationally bursting into tears over something completely random. Something ridiculous like the dog barking, or realising there's no milk in the house for breakfast (there's a corner shop one minute away, this is not an issue). Not done that today though. Because this is such an obvious sign I don't really pay attention to any other signs. I get cramps but couldn't tell you when in relation to when AF arrives.

NotWithoutMyMerkin Sun 17-Mar-13 00:19:10

So will keep everything crossed overnight barking. I'm watching the f1 qualifying before getting up at 5am to watch the race hmm

Bunnygirlie Sun 17-Mar-13 01:23:59

Just got in, no strip tonight just another strop! Hubby bid far too much on the auction and I had a meltdown, not sure what is wrong with me!

NotWithoutMyMerkin Sun 17-Mar-13 06:11:23

Morning ladies. Up watching F1 and awaiting pimping updates from tally and barking <taps foot> grin

barkingtreefrog Sun 17-Mar-13 08:17:57

Nothing to see here...

On the comeback front, my DP has a slightly amusing if a little wrong one. When one of his mates asked if we were trying for a baby DP said something along the lines of yes, we've been trying for a while, but they're really tight on security at maternity hospitals these days and we've not managed to snatch one yet.
Bad taste, admittedly, but the mate didn't ask again!

NotWithoutMyMerkin Sun 17-Mar-13 08:25:53 need of some good news as i'm not convinced my lines are staying around. 3 tests this morning, 1 is a squinter, 2 (including a FRER) are showing nothing. Want to stay in and hug the sofa today but have to go and put the smiles on for the in laws sad angry Dreading telling DH but will wait until Tue (AF) so I know for sure. So easy when you've not been pregnant before to treat the BFP as the hurdle, but there's loads after that (that sounds naive!). Anyway crossing everything for all of you ladies still in the wait x

NotWithoutMyMerkin Sun 17-Mar-13 08:27:03

Ps... there's the lesson in testing too early! smile

cherrycoconut Sun 17-Mar-13 08:27:54

<sniggers at barking> I have a love for inappropriate humour, so wrong but it makes me giggle.

I'm losing faith in this weeks earlier O prediction. Temps back to normal 97.2 here this morning. Oh and my chart link has changed - it can now be found here for anyone who cares to pop along and nod sagely with me. So much almost excitement there for a second. At ease folks, stand down the fireworks.

NotWithoutMyMerkin Sun 17-Mar-13 08:30:00

Am I going mad... can't seem to see today's temp on your chart cherry

cherrycoconut Sun 17-Mar-13 08:31:41

Oh Merkin everything crossed for you that they stick around, not easy to put on the brave face for the inlaws with those doubts doing the rounds. I know too little about it to offer many words of wisdom but I hope you're wrong.

NotWithoutMyMerkin Sun 17-Mar-13 08:33:01

Thanks cherry. Does your chart take into account your OPK? Can't see a row for it and therefore not sure if it is part of the data

cherrycoconut Sun 17-Mar-13 08:33:06

Hmmm. It doesn't seem to be loading for some reason Merkin. In denial too perhaps and waiting for a more positve temp to report!

cherrycoconut Sun 17-Mar-13 08:36:59

Chart gone bonkers... heading off out now but hopefully will have sorted itself out by later! Yes +ve OPK on Monday!
