We weren't supposed to start till January! But we did!
Join us as we ttc #1 after pill/contraception etc.

We've got a boat, it makes frequent stops for wine, pissy sticks, wool, slings, cake and all manner of shit we don't need yet but we buy anyway!

Marking my place. Haha, I laugh that my plan was to start TTC at Christmas!! That changed quickly under this group's influence.

Love the pics - so true!

Place marking!

Can I join? Hi all. Also ttc (or rather, not preventing) no 1. Weren't supposed to try til April (woops) but lost luggage meant no condoms on the honeymoon... And a conversation about "not preventing" ... Don't want to officially say trying so as not to scare the hubby but he's happy if it happens. Slight snag in the plan is that iv only had one period since stopping the pill 4 months ago, and don't think iv OV'd at all... So will just have to wait and see. Xx

Wellcome sunny grin

Berg you are the current prego boat champ with a potential bfp! grin
Hi shelb

Hi Sunny

I'm unfurling my beach towel, making a cuppa and reserving my place on the boat... Can I do another pregnancy test yet??? grin

BubbaNo1 Tue 17-Nov-15 14:02:45

Hi all.. Can I join?

I had my last pill 2 weeks ago, I've had a light AF since then... Keep getting cramps though? Not quite sure what's going on.

We are TTC straight away.. No hanging about for us. My fertile window opens on Thurs so lots of DTD to be expected over the next week! Excited but also nervous :-s

Clarabell100 Tue 17-Nov-15 14:21:33

Ooh can I join too? We said we were goi g to start in January but then got a bit tipsy while we were away for our first wedding anniversary and decided just to go for it! We're now on our third ttc cycle and hoping for a nice wee Xmas pressie!

Yay new thread. lovi f the title and pics Starky!**
I feel in morning for my fertile window. I had ov pain yesterday abs Ewcm. I know I'm out until February but it was still a rush of "ooh I'm fertile" sad

Runner I still have my fingers crossed for you, hold on to that wee for the morning!!

Runner05 Tue 17-Nov-15 14:56:19

Aww Bunch, just not fair!!! I want us all upduffed by the end of the year sad

I'm crossing my legs and leaving the FRER untouched until morning. I've been reading articles all afternoon trying to work out whether pink lines appearing late is usually upduffed or not... Seems that everyone has an opinion on the subject but the fact I've been seeing really faint lines that have got darker seems to be a positive. 12dpo tomorrow so we'll see.

Hello new ladies grin welcome to the boat!

Runner05 Tue 17-Nov-15 15:08:43

Pissy sticks anonymous step 15: do not say that you will not do another test and then do one anyway promising yourself that if it's BFN you won't tell anyone.

I had a rubbish clear blue lying around... I thought I'd use it to ease my pissy stick addiction... The attached photo is with 10 minutes, I cracked the test open because why the hell not and found this rather nice line. Not convinced it isn't evap, guess I'll find out tomorrow.

Photo hasn't been edited at all!

BergamotMouse Tue 17-Nov-15 15:17:40

Eek!! I can definitely see a line runner!! And if it was in the time limit I'd say it's looking good!!

How many have you done now? I might go take no 5 when I get home just to see what's happening and hope I get a result that convinces DH. I feel sick today - could still be in my head though.

BunchOfBobs Tue 17-Nov-15 15:23:03

Haha Runner.
You are breaking all your own rules!!

The day I got my evap line I did three tests. I understand the obsession. I'm holding out huge hope for you due to your symptoms. FX
Do an early test to appease my night shift brain before going to sleep. I'll be headed to slumber land by 7.30am I hope to see a line then wink

I'm feeling slightly hopeful that I may have a chance in December. Apps are saying AF will come a week earlier than I thought meaning I can get some swimmers in place a few days before the fertile window. I can only hope!

Runner05 Tue 17-Nov-15 15:27:32

Err I've probably taken 5 or 6 tests now oops but in my defence they have all been a bit ambiguous wink

This line does look blue but I am a bit concerned that maybe it's evap as it didn't develop until I took it out of the housing but it was there as soon as it was out so maybe I jumped the gun cracking the test open.

Join me in the repeated testing Betgamot you know you want to grin

Runner05 Tue 17-Nov-15 15:31:18

Bunch that's fantastic! Make sure you jump your OH at least 3 times a day! I want to see you breaking the pissy sticks anonymous rules next month!!

I will attempt to drag myself out of bed at 6am tomorrow to do an early test just for you! wink

StarkyTheDirewolf Tue 17-Nov-15 16:00:02

Forgot to add...first thread link.

BergamotMouse Tue 17-Nov-15 16:15:00

Great news about dates bunch. Really hoping they work out.

I think you should just relax tonight runner as more tests will likely just give more unanswered questions and test first thing - I know this is already your plan but bet you're itching to do 'just one more'. I will be watching from 6am!

Having said that I caved (after having an argument with myself in the bathroom about the pros and cons of testing again). Definitely a line - hopefully enough of one to convince DH. We're going to celebrate by raising a toast with some OJ tonight. Though I have dreadful heartburn so might stick to water. I can sense my social life is about to go tumbling off a cliff.

Runner05 Tue 17-Nov-15 16:27:52

Bergamot I'm so glad you got another line smile at least you can still eat cake! winkchocolate (they seem to have removed the cake picture)

Doing another test today would require me to open the new pack of FRER I just bought and that's not going to happen. I will wait until tomorrow now smile

purplesmiler Tue 17-Nov-15 16:34:09

Wow I go away for a long weekend (had no phone signal) and come back to some fabulous updates!

Berg huge congratulations. So exciting!
Enjoy your OJ toast tonight.

Runner fingers crossed for a positive result.

I'm currently in my fertile week according to the app. Have to say been enjoying bedroom action every day since Friday you know just to make sure we cover all bases lol.

I know next week when I am due to test I will probably get tempted a few days early. It's hard to be patient hehe.

DrWhy Tue 17-Nov-15 16:42:23

Thanks Starky and EEEK!!! Exciting to Berg and Runner- I can't believe that a thread about coming off the Pill in Dec ahead of TTC next year already has 2 likely BFPs!

I am officially no longer on the pill, should have restarted after my break yesterday and didn't. I triple confirmed with DH is was OK (by FaceTime as he's still abroad) and his rather unenthusiastic answer was 'I thought we sort of already agreed that'! So I've taken that as a go ahead blush

DH won't be back until 5th Dec so no TTC before that and I'm not sure but we might use condoms until after Christmas. I don't start my new role until 1st Jan and starting nearly a month pregnant might be a bit much. Although of course the chances are nothing would happen in the first month anyway. But it could...!

Runner05 Tue 17-Nov-15 17:01:48

Yay! Purple welcome back brew

Sounds like you need no encouragement to get at it, well done that girl! wink

Morwenna1 Tue 17-Nov-15 17:04:29

Missed lots as usual!! Managed to find the next thread however! Massive Congrats to Berg and fingers crossed Runner!!! Here's hoping for you bunch smile

Fallen off the wagon slightly due to not feeling well (head cold) but hoping to er, climb back on this month!! Not long till FW for me. Yet to piss on a stick ladies, I'm quite resolved that I won't be until I'm most definitely late. I know what I'm like! Even if it's a BFP I still will be doubting it all the way until AF.

Runner05 Tue 17-Nov-15 17:04:58

Ooo Dr yet another of use taking the plunge and coming off the pill. There can't be many of us still partaking of chemical contraceptives now?

Good luck, whether you decide to use other contraceptives or not it feels good to give the pill the heave ho!

Runner05 Tue 17-Nov-15 17:06:42

Mor good luck with fertile week. I wish I had your resolve regarding poas, maybe I would have if I wasn't having symptoms. The skittle tits are hard to ignore!!!

Planningtobeamum1 Tue 17-Nov-15 17:09:35

Wow congratulations Bergamot and Runner!

AF arrived for me on Saturday (but was only 3 days long), now counting down till my next fertile window....

Is anyone still on their tww?

I see there are some addicts experts on pregnancy tests - I managed to withhold testing last cycle (although desperately hoping AF would not arrive) but not sure I can resist this time. Any advice on good (but cheap) ones to get?
