A friendly and supportive bus for anyone at any stage in the TTC journey - recruiting now! :-)

DizzyNorthernBird Thu 10-Sep-15 23:07:32

I'm here! Hmmm I think we could downgrade our bus to a limo if we don't get some new recruits soon!

And we'll have a free bar and a hot driver.

Cd2 for me. Af arrived on Tuesday night. I'm fine but feeling a bit mystified about what I'm doing wrong.....? DP commented last night that maybe he is the problem. He's promised to get tested if we pass the 1 year mark, but just say he is the problem? Where do we go from there?

Where is everyone else?

Place marking and jumping aboard. Last day of the progesterone pills for me today, so I will sit at the back and await my bleed til it's time to start the clomid again.

DizzyN if it's your DH's sperm that is the problem, there are things you can do with supplements to improve it. Don't fret; we've heard some marvellous things on here and I'm sure people will be along to advise you if you do discover that that is the issue. Sorry for AF flowers flowers

Waves to everyone else. Hope you're all ok. x x x

Kirjava Fri 11-Sep-15 05:19:19

Place marking too!

Cd17, lots of ewcm and just waiting for ov.

We definitely need to attract some newbies!

Kirjava Fri 11-Sep-15 05:20:27

dizzy sorry for af. What cycle are you now? It will happen for you flowers

eskimo fx for you!

Moomin37 Fri 11-Sep-15 06:11:39

Hello can I join? smile Waves to Eskimoflo

I am on CD13 and I have a long story. In short came off Yasmin after about 15 years in July 2014, had withdrawal bleed and then nothing for 381 days when AF finally arrived at the start of August! My clever body then managed to persuade the painters to return about 28 days later smile I have a diagnosis of hypothalamic amenorrhea (lack of ovulation due to energy deficit - too much excercise, not enough food etc.) and I had a lap and dye and hystowhatever in July (generally all is OK). I had one round of Clomid in early August but cannot have any more due to the side effects (visual disturbances). No scans but did day 21 test and had score of 27, indicating that I was on the cusp in terms of ovulation. Starting injectables next week... worried they will turn me into (more of) a mad women, but hey ho! I struggle to keep up with threads that move quickly, but I'll do my best smile

Sorry to ramble on! I am an occasional POAS er and we're trying to DTD EOD (but I work very long hours and always tired, so it's tough going).

Happy Friday everyone grin

sammylou1 Fri 11-Sep-15 07:07:34

Ooh a new bus, place marking!

Welcome Moomin!

Eskimo - what dose of clomid are you on this time?

DizzyN - lots of people swear by high doses of vitamin c for sperm issues, couldn't hurt to start him on some even before he's tested? Xx

Woolly84 Fri 11-Sep-15 08:43:19

Oo a newbie - yay! Welcome moomin smile sounds like you've had a tough journey, I hope your BFP is just round the corner. This bus moves slower than it used to nowadays so easier to keep up!

dizzyn the limo avec hot driver sounds good to me! Sorry stupid AF arrived. I think it is normal to take a year to conceive, so you're not doing anything wrong. We're at 9 months and have also agreed to do tests after the 1 year mark (we've had no tests at all to date). There are so many options these days for treatment so try not to worry, statistically speaking it is more likely to happen eventually than not!

eskimo hope the pills kick in soon.

kirjava hope you're getting busy! wink

sammy how are you?

Eeek, AF due this weekend, stay away witch! cake and wine on standby...

lilygirl81 Fri 11-Sep-15 09:07:41

Place marking too since AF has still refused to show up, now 5 days late and still BFN.

Kirjava Fri 11-Sep-15 09:15:17

Welcome moomin! Sorry you've had a rough ride of ttc so far.

lily oh no, it sucks doesn't it. I had a horrible 51 day random cycle. Maybe it was an anuovulatory cycle? Apparently it's normal to have 2 or so a year sad

woolly most certainly am!

Pixa Fri 11-Sep-15 09:25:51

Place marking so I can keep lurking, popping in every now and then and cheering you all on from the side lines

Mummyofonesofar Fri 11-Sep-15 09:48:05

Borisenjoy Istanbul and sounds like you had a lovely break in bath.

Sorry for BFN lily are you sure of your ov date or of ovving at all? Do you temp?

eskimo horray for last day of pills! Fingers crossed for the 150mg of Clomid x

DizzyN is he on supps? Ask chops what her dh took as he went from 0% morphology to pregnant!

Welcome Moomin it sounds like it??s been a tough ride so far, fingers crossed the injections kick everything off for you!

I must say I have been rubbish at doing the stats the last 6 weeks or so. I try to stalk and keep up but after my 2 weeks off MN (holibobs and what not) I am now behind sad here do I have a volunteer to take them on?

Oysterbabe Fri 11-Sep-15 10:16:43

Hi everyone!
Happy Friday. Hope you're all doing well.
Just thought I'd pop in and let you know I had my 20 week scan today and everything is fine. We didn't find out the gender as want a surprise.
Really hope you all graduate soon smile

lilygirl81 Fri 11-Sep-15 10:23:54

Mummy I started temping, but they were all over the place, think because I get up during the night quite a lot. Did do OPKs and monitor CM, so fairly sure I've got my OV dates right, today would by 14dpo. I've not tested today as it feels like it should have shown yesterday so what's the point.

DH said last night that it definitely seems like I'm pregnant, can't stomach coffee, had a glass of wine last night and thought it smelt really weird, plus almost threw up at my desk.

I am at the doctor on Monday, so think if AF hasn't shown up by then I'll mention it.

Oyster fantastic news about your scan

Hi Moomin everyone on here is lovely, I joined last month

Woolly Hope AF stays far away xx

Placemarking..! smile

Mummyofonesofar Fri 11-Sep-15 12:05:47

lily cm and opks can indicate a surge in LH but not that you actually ovulated, we all have around 2 annovulatory cycles per year so just something to keep in mind. However I do think our DHs know when we are pregnant, mine told me before I tested and was correct smile get a frer for tomorrow fmu?

Kirjava Fri 11-Sep-15 12:53:37

Great news oyster!

lilygirl81 Fri 11-Sep-15 13:55:15

I've bought a FR to try tomorrow morning. Will let you know x

Kirjava Fri 11-Sep-15 14:52:57

Fx for you lily

DizzyMerry Fri 11-Sep-15 15:52:06

Found you all! I kept refreshing the old thread wondering where you'd all gone!

That's beautiful boris. Hope you're having a great time.

Dizzy sorry for AF. If your DH does have sperm problems then he could take vit c 1000mg and wellman conception vits. DH had 0% morphology and he took both these. It wouldn't hurt for him to start taking these now.

Fx for you lily.

Welcome moomin smile

Hi girls, sorry for the lack of posting, my dad is in hospital, they think he might have had a small heart attack sad. It's awful, I'm so worried about him.
Will catch up when things calm down, love to you all. X
