Come join us on the July bus - with its assortment of good luck charms, lots of cake and hopefully a busload of BFPs.

SomeDizzyWhore1804 Wed 05-Jun-13 12:54:49

Go on- I'll have a ride on this bus.

I'm relaxing this month though- no OPKS, no ridiculous suppliments and vitamins and God knows what and no symptom spotting. I am just going to have lots of sex and stay calm.

SomeDizzyWhore1804 Wed 05-Jun-13 12:55:16

Sorry should have added- ttc dc1 cycle 4 grin

SomeDizzyWhore1804 Wed 05-Jun-13 12:55:44

Oh and BFP due around 5.7.13

I will shut up now!!!!

sleepingdragon Wed 05-Jun-13 12:56:17

I will start, and give the thread a little bump:

sleepingdragon ttc#1, cycle 2, bfp due 5 July

Looking forward to seeing more of you soon (and in the meantime will keep eating this cake grin

SomeDizzyWhore1804 Wed 05-Jun-13 12:57:45

I'm going to do it in the proper format now:

Nice to see you Dizzy - have some cake! In the time it took me to write that you managed to post 3 messages! Good luck with your new approach, I will try to join you in the staying calm - I have learnt so much about pregnanacy symptoms over the past couple of months I've done so much spotting and internet searching.

SomeDizzyWhore1804 Wed 05-Jun-13 13:08:48

Lol my brain is so not in gear. Thanks for the cake! Maybe a wine while we still can too?

Last month was an especially hysterical one for me- I am so much worse in the 2ww if it falls in a school holiday (I am a teacher) and last week I just had my head in my pants the whole time checking and rechecking etc. It didn't help that I started on Vitamin B Complex to lengthen my cycle (before I had around 5-7 days of spotting before period) and it worked so I managed to convince myself a bit that I was preggers, eventhough in my heart I knew it was just the B Complex.

In the four months since I had my coil out I have used PreSeed and variously been taking Raspberry Leaf capsules, Agnus Castus, Black Kosh, Cinnamon, B Complex, Evening Primrose Oil, Vitamin E.... Holland and Barratt is like my new home from home. I have also been using OPKS despite being absolutely right that I knew when I was ovuilating just from my body. But no more! I am going to stick with the B Complex and keep up the Folic Acid but otherwise I am going cold turkey and just go with theflow and try and get back to enjoying sex and enjoying life and just see what happens.

I have written in my diary at the top of the month "You are 27, you are healthy, this will happen, just be PATIENT!" and I am trying to believe it grin grin grin

BartBaby Wed 05-Jun-13 15:46:37

Room for a little one? Just been kicked off the june bus so here i am. A march baby sounds better than a feb baby anyway! Lol must try to stay positive!!

Do we have a passengers in board bit yet? I dont know how to do that and add to it on my phone?!

BartBaby ttc#2, cycle 3, bfp due 3rd july

Beccadugs Wed 05-Jun-13 17:30:32

Can I join too? My app say AF due 30th June, but probably won't test until 1st July... I am straddling both buses, now that this one has pulled up! (I am also exited to be at the front of the bus!!)

Beccadugs TTC #1, cycle 1 BFP due 1/7

BartBaby Wed 05-Jun-13 17:51:26

Welcome aboard becca

What cycle day are you on?

Redbug Wed 05-Jun-13 17:53:11

Can I play too? Lurked on June bus but Was secretly hoping BFP would appear before I actually posted on any of the threads!

Been TTC for a few months now, so have cracked out the thermometer and Clearblue fertility monitor thingy that finally did the trick with DC2 after months of trying!

Redbug ttc#3, cycle 4, BFP due 4th July

BartBaby Wed 05-Jun-13 18:03:24

Hi redbug

Ive found the threads really helpful smile and its good to have somewhere to vent and talk to about lady things without annoying DH!

Redbug Wed 05-Jun-13 18:24:25

It is good - I was trying to convince myself that I wouldn't think about it too much and therefore not join in threads, but after 3 months I'm bored of that plan!

BartBaby Wed 05-Jun-13 18:30:47

Im finding it impossible not to think about it obsess over it so i find it sort of comforting that there's others here in the same boat as me. Im thinking of trying the temping this month, as long as i can remember!

Redbug Wed 05-Jun-13 18:35:11

The month I started temping and using a fertillity monitor was the month I conceived DC2 - I was ovulating a day later than I thought, which isn't much, but did at least mean we maximised chances by not giving up too early, iykwim.

BartBaby Wed 05-Jun-13 19:07:46

We normally dtd every 2-3 days anyway so it works out quite well. I used the opk's aswell to see when i ov. I found them really easy, but lots of people on here have found them with the lines quite tricky to work out. Which makes me think im doing something wrong! Lol

OdinsServant Wed 05-Jun-13 20:34:31

Peers nervously on board
Can I join you ladies, first time poster (long time lurker though), I have cake of the chocolate kind smile
TTC #1, cycle 4, BFP due 3rd July (although irregular cycles means this is more of a guess!)
Going for the good old fashioned dtd regularly approach, trying to avoid the lure of OPKs and other toys as I already obsess and spend way too much on my poas habit

BartBaby Wed 05-Jun-13 20:49:13

Hello odins thanks for the cake!

This is my last month with the opk's for a while anyway
I mainly used them to check everything was working fine after having the coil removed and see how things were working in there.

Hopefully this will be a nice lucky bus smile

Beccadugs Wed 05-Jun-13 23:34:21

Thanks for the welcome, and welcome to the latestest arrivals. I have bought a quart of cola cubes and rhubarb and custard to pass around!

bart I'm in CD9 (if 36 day cycle)! Before TTC I used to
Feel quite smug about my long cycles. Meant less periods, now I hate them as it is a long time between fertile windows!

sleepingdragon Thu 06-Jun-13 00:11:38

Minion Thu 06-Jun-13 09:24:22

Morning. Jumped off the June bus to hop a ride on this one!
Come on lucky 7!

Minion TTC 1 cycle 4 BFP due 2nd

SomeDizzyWhore1804 Thu 06-Jun-13 09:40:22

Hello newbies!

Glad we have a range of methods from trying to relax and see how it goes to temping and OPKS.... hopefully it will give us a viewpoint on which idea works best!

As I said I am trying to be relaxed this month but that probably won't last. At least the sunshine is out and we are finally getting some summer. Let's hope the Vitamin D makes a difference!

BartBaby Thu 06-Jun-13 13:47:53

Thanks for doing the passenger board dragon smile

I did my temp this morning so lets see how i go with remembering the other days! Im planning on getting some smiley opk's. as i think seeing the little smiley face will make me feel better if nothing else!
