Hey! New today too smile what's ttc? Never remember all these! x

Laurajones1986 Wed 21-Aug-13 08:07:16

Haha, it's trying to conceive :-) to be fair, I have only just found out what it means myself! X

Kt1991 Wed 21-Aug-13 08:10:50

Welcome Laurajones1986 smile we are ttc too, have just had first period since coming off the pill mid July sad but have PCOS, so hoping that this will help me know my cycles cause I don’t get periods often! Good luck to you smile

Laurajones1986 Wed 21-Aug-13 08:16:43

Aw really!
Well, I'm only on month one, DTD Monday night after only 2days of finishing AF, so that's wishful thinking on my part haha, but that's just me, I'm super impatient!
Fell pregnant first time within a few days of trying so I just keep thinking its going to happen again! X

Laurajones1986 Wed 21-Aug-13 08:18:09

Oh, and my cycle is all over the place so that's a pain too! :-( x

Kt1991 Wed 21-Aug-13 08:27:17

Fingers crossed for you! I’m hoping I’m coming to the end of AF now as not so heavy, but your body does strange things! WOW that was quick! I fell pregnant after 3 months with my DS 3 years ago,so would be great if it could be about the same again. x

Laurajones1986 Wed 21-Aug-13 08:37:44

Aw, so not long to wait till you start ovulation then! Fingers crossed for you too!
Although all I see to hear is that it's harder to conceive 2nd time round, I'm hoping not! X

Hi girls! I just posted similar thread few days ago, good to have new people around. Kt1991, hope you'll be as lucky as with your DS smile I know coming off the pill messes up your body, but it'll regulate on its own as well, so no worries!

Laurajones1986 Wed 21-Aug-13 09:13:10

I remember when I came off the pill the first time my cycle was all over the place, from the 14th to the 26th of the month it would start!

Does having a baby mess up your cycle too? Because I haven't gone back on the pill since having my DD 8months ago and there still all over the place! That's why I think it's going to be harder to conceive this time x

justb01 Wed 21-Aug-13 09:33:04

It may change your cycle, plenty of women say that their cycles are different after having a baby. But id doesn't mean that it'll be harder to conceive smile Just try to detect your O, and BD oftensmile

Laurajones1986 Wed 21-Aug-13 09:49:17

I will do....

My oh has already said I'm like a drill Sargent ordering him around...
And only on first month! Oops x

Kt1991 Wed 21-Aug-13 12:29:50

Thanks justb01 have you just started ttc too? Mine have been all over the place since I was younger Laura too so don’t worry! Keep me upto date both of you!

justb01 Wed 21-Aug-13 13:06:47

Kt1991, started not that long ago, though already experienced some dreadful and stressful moments. Now I'm trying to take it easy.

Hi all!

I'm new to mumsnet and TTC baby #1. Came off contraception on August 1st. Eek! I am super impatient and excited but not seen AF since contraception stopped so haven't started charting or using OPK yet. Done lots and lots of reading up on it all though!!

ChesterCake Wed 21-Aug-13 16:25:40

I've had my coil removed today to start TTC number 2! Excited to be sharing this journey with you ladies!

Does anyone have any tips on using ovulation tests etc? DS was a surprise baby so I've never actively tried before and don't know where to start!!

MrsB2013 Wed 21-Aug-13 17:33:31

Hi fellow newbies!

I have posted on other threads but will join here too!

I am 32 and DH is 31, we are TTC #1 first cycle, am worried about my age, but we'll see what happens.

Was on the pill for 12years, had normal withdrawal bleed and started trying straight away

How old are you all if you don't mind me asking?

VJONES1985 Wed 21-Aug-13 17:35:30

Hi, I'm also fresh off the pill and I'm 28.

Kt1991 Wed 21-Aug-13 20:30:40

I’m 22, but as I wrote in a post further up I have PCOS so unsure whats going to happen! I’ve brought a packet of cheap early pregnancy tests from amazon which i’ll use every month if I don’t get a period every month (hoping I won’t have anymore though!) Good luck to everyone!

VJONES1985 Wed 21-Aug-13 20:34:12

Kt - have you thought of using opks to see if you're ovulating?

Kt1991 Wed 21-Aug-13 20:46:50

Someone on another post reckons that they don’t work if you have PCOS though VJONES? Is it normally 14 days after AF that you ovulate? If so, will see what happens then!

VJONES1985 Wed 21-Aug-13 20:50:24

Ah right, good point. The average number of days is 14 but I ov this month on cd19 so it depends really. The average cycle is 26-34 days apparently.
