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

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!

MummyPig24 Thu 06-Jun-13 14:11:24

I'm going to join this bus rather than June as my last 2 cycles have been 44 days long!! So going by that I will estimate I am due around July 11th. Ttc #3 and this is cycle 2.

Redbug Thu 06-Jun-13 16:34:36

Hi Mummy nice to see another TTC#3-er! I had a big meltdown when we first started TTC about whether I was being 'greedy' going for number three, but a couple of months of not succeeding have made us certain that this is what we want. So I am determinedly looking at my last three BFN cycles as positive steps rather than bloody irritating grin

I have literally just discovered One Born Every Minute, after refusing to ever watch it before. I may be addicted. Although it all looks much, well, cleaner and quieter than my first delivery did!

MummyPig24 Thu 06-Jun-13 17:03:38

Omg RedBug where have you been? Love one born every minute! So emotional! I remember watching it while pregnant with dd.

How old are your other children? Mine are 3 and 5, so I'm worrying about the bigger gap between them and dc3, if I fell pregnant this month then dd would turn 4 around the same time baby was born.

I told dh that as my period is over we need to get on it and make a baby!

Redbug Thu 06-Jun-13 17:34:16

I thought it would be rubbish mummy, but it's completely addictive! I have never cried so much at a program, DH thinks it's hilarious as I never cry at anything.

My DCs are 4.9 and 2.3 (2.5 yr gap) so if I conceive soon there will be 3 yrs-ish between DC2 and 3. In my more rational moments I think that if we haven't conceived by the end of this year we'll stop as I don't want the second age gap too big relative to the first, but who knows if I'll still think that in 6 months time! I was definitely not at my most rational when ttc DC2 (which took 8 months, including a MC), so I'm making no promises.

SomeDaySoon74 Thu 06-Jun-13 18:12:55

Hello hello. Count me in. I'm joining the relaxed-approach-crowd this month, no opk's or other gadgets. Gonna try dtd every 2-3 days for most of the month and then every day when on hols (2 week sailing hol over my fertile time - perfect!) Won't be taking any pg tests with me on hols so won't get sucked into the testing early temptations like I did last month.
Also have been persuaded by DH that I'm 'only' on cycle 4 as the count got re-set after the last failed pregnancy. So psychologically I feel a bit more normal! grin
Good luck everyone. Happy trying!!

MummyPig24 Thu 06-Jun-13 18:13:04

I have a similar gap between my first 2 and it took 2 months to conceive our second. Hoping it will be second time lucky for us this time round too.

C999875 Thu 06-Jun-13 18:31:47

Hope to join. Been trying since April. mum to one angel and .D.D.
I am on C.D 26. xxx

BartBaby Thu 06-Jun-13 19:44:26

Welcome ladies, hope you are all doing ok.

My ds is nearly 4, so by the time im upduffed and its here he will be nearly 5! More of an age gap than i would have liked but with one thing and another, on the plus side im thinking he will be at full time school and i wont be as rushed off my feet!

PainAuxRaisins Thu 06-Jun-13 22:30:44

Hi can I join? TTC #3 - have 3yr old and 5yr old already and DH thinks I am getting on a bit so we ought to start trying from this month. Good luck everyone! xxx

LivinItSmall Fri 07-Jun-13 07:13:00

Hi. Another new passenger here. Chart says BFP due 1st of July so I might get two trips on the July bus!! I have one DD who is 4 going on 14 & it's time to try for another as I'm definitely getting too old for this smile

Vikkijayne2507 Fri 07-Jun-13 10:41:39

I am a newbie and have been looking at all the threads cam off the pill recently and so waiting to get back in the flow but who knows July might be my month along with my birthhday and summer holiday planned.

BartBaby Fri 07-Jun-13 14:21:39

Hello newbies smile

So... AF showed up 2 days late on wednesday afternoon. And its just about gone already. Whats that all about?! Not that im really complaining! Be glad to get back to dtd wink
Anyone else have really short af's?

Ive still been feeling quite sick. But will probably put that down to either not eating enough, or eating too much! That chocolate was sooo good though. I didnt even save anybody any hmm

The sore boobs have now gone though with i am very pleased about grin

londonchick Fri 07-Jun-13 14:26:52

Yey! The July bus! Thanks sleeping

I was kicked off the June bus on Tuesday. Just getting to the end of AF. Going to try SMEP this month although I was telling DH about it and he turned white! Might have to adapt the plan!!

I bring home baked goods and, just for this weekend, some wine. After Subday it's vitamins, fruit and chocolate all the way. Fingers crossed everyone! I have a good feeling for July!!

Londonchick ttc #1 cycle 5 BFP due 4th July

Monstamio Fri 07-Jun-13 15:29:26

Hello! Just kicked myself off June bus due to mixed up cycle which means I'm now due beginning of next month rather than the end of this one. Think there might be a few of us like that on this bus!

So here are my stats:

Monstamio, ttc#1, cycle 2, bfp due 2nd July

Good luck one and all!

OdinsServant Fri 07-Jun-13 20:47:56

Evening all, I hope you've all be enjoying this lovely sunshine!

I took the opportunity to sit in the sun and have a glass of wine look into SMEP as well now AF has packed her bags for the month. DP looked like all his Xmas's had come at once when I told him what it involved, then went slightly white when I informed him there wasn't an 'I'm tired' opt out clause in it.

And seems its so sunny, I bring us all some Pimms wine to the bus, as obviously this can and will be our last drinkies for 9 months wink

Fox82 Fri 07-Jun-13 21:28:49

Please can I join too?

Fox82, ttc#1, cycle 6, bfp due 1st July

Thatssofunny Fri 07-Jun-13 22:25:29

Bringing bottles of cider and some nice chocolates. Hey there,...didn't mean to meet all these familiar names again on a bus (nothing personal, of course,...under different circumstances, it would be lovely to see you all again).
My cycles seem to get longer and longer, which is really weird. They used to be 26-28 days,...the last one was 34 days! Not sure what's going on.

Oh well, here we go again for another round, if you'll have me...

Thatssofunny, ttc #1, cycle 5, bfp due 10th July

I'll be trying the CB Advanced opks this time round (for some reason, they were cheaper than the normal ones). SMEP is a bit tricky with us, since I ovulate really late, if we start on day 8, by the time I ovulate on day 21 or 22, DP is slightly fed up. blush
I'm still temping, but my temps have gone up again,...I haven't gone below my cover line, yet, which FertilityFriend has changed to 97.01. Today was 97.90. shock hmm AF is definitely here, though. She's hard to overlook.

SunshinedreamIng Sat 08-Jun-13 00:22:39

So nice to see familiar faces!!
I am back and wishing everyone the best of luck for lucky N 7 month!!
SunshinedreamIng TTC #2 cycle 2 BFP due 2nd July

Yeayy! Happy ride everyone thanksgrin

SunshinedreamIng Sat 08-Jun-13 00:23:16

Is anyone making a proper list?

BartBaby Sat 08-Jun-13 07:07:27

I will try and do an up to date list in a little while. I dont know how to do it on my phone? But will get the laptop out later smile

gillywillywoo Sat 08-Jun-13 08:19:46


I'm still on the June bus but was browsing threads and just had a mini heart attack that your list hadnt been updated for a while grin

Dh is going away on the 20th, I estimate I ovulate on the 19th! He will be here in the morning but not in the evening, so we will keep dtd up until then and hope for the best but I can't see it happening this month, unless I have a sorter cycle this time.
