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.
Lol my brain is so not in gear. Thanks for the cake! Maybe a 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
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!
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.
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
Peers nervously on board Can I join you ladies, first time poster (long time lurker though), I have cake of the chocolate kind 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
Hi everyone. Its great there are 6 of us already. I've done us a passengers on board thing:
