We're on the 4th thread! Oh come all ye symptom spotters! And a fertile new year!

StarkyTheDirewolf Wed 23-Dec-15 17:30:54

Post your stats!

Starky, 29. Cycle 1. Cd19, 9 days till test! Don't know if I ovulated this cycle. No symptoms, just a shit load of gale force wind! Dh is impressed!

00Bubbles00 Wed 23-Dec-15 17:38:07

Thanks starky.

Bubbles, 32, Cycle 1, CD 11. Currently trying to decided whether DTD over Christmas period is good idea or not (inclined to say s*d it and start anyway even though the plan was always Jan).

Dubbya Wed 23-Dec-15 17:43:09

Thanks starky!

Dub, 34, cycle 1, CD31!
No idea what's happening after being on the pill for 17 years shock

Snowdog37 Wed 23-Dec-15 17:44:25

Snow dog, 37, cycle 1, cycle day 20 (out of a usual 25 day cycle), 3 days til testing according to Ovia. Have been ill with a sore throat and cold on and off since last weekend, a bit gassy, temps are a degree or more above my pre-ovulation temps, have got mild cramps and backache today, brown spotting overnight, feel like af will be here imminently. Bfn yesterday but am hoping I'll be proved wrong!

00Bubbles00 Wed 23-Dec-15 17:48:58

Fingers crossed Snowdog and Dubbya!

Snowdog37 Wed 23-Dec-15 17:49:25

Bubbles I think you should go for it! fgrin it's fun to practice and if you get lucky that's even better!

Dubbya Wed 23-Dec-15 17:51:28

Thanks bubbles, I agree with snow - go for it!

Snowdog37 Wed 23-Dec-15 17:52:05

Starky, I'll be the first with a gross tmi symptom: I've got kind of rumble farts. Like I'm just tooting away almost constantly. Nothing loud or trumpeting. Just background noise lol. I've read that being your own source of wind energy is A Sign. Fingers crossed for us both!

LaraG13 Wed 23-Dec-15 17:53:46

Lara, 33, cycle 1, cd 22, about 10 dpo, bfn yesterday. Cramps and bloating last couple of days but could easily be too many mince pies!

firstgo1984 Wed 23-Dec-15 17:58:00

TTC #1
Cycle 2
CD 76 (post-pill madness)
Positive opk + ewcm 9th/10th Dec
Very light pink CM 21st Dec, light brown on wiping today (miniscule amounts)
BFN this morning.
Testing again on friday if no AF

Whyissheontheship Wed 23-Dec-15 17:59:42

Whyisshe 27
Cycle 1
CD23 no sign of ovulation or AF yet
Mild symptoms (scraping the barrel with hope)
Just bought a whole loads of opk and hpt and so will be daily peeing on things till I get a BFP or AF and the fun begins again!

StarkyTheDirewolf Wed 23-Dec-15 18:00:36

No probs guys! I tend to start a new thread before the actual end of the previous just because I think it's easier to locate and gather everyone that way!

Awww thanks snow I'm feeling very quietly hopeful, but as I'm not sure if I ovulated, ill have to keep that in mind. Sort of a 'what came first, Dh or the egg' conundrum! grin sorry, gross joke I'm so bloated, but I think that's mainly because I ate pasta yesterday and a burrito today and I don't usually have a lot of wheat/gluten in my diet. Dsis is intolerant to gluten/coeliac so whenever she's here we make everything gluten free!

Bubbles definetly go for it over Christmas! Up were so close to January now there's not much point in waiting!

dub I'm sure you will get to know your cycle a bit better now, and you'd better keep us all updated! I'm a nosy one, me!

Pinklily1 Wed 23-Dec-15 18:01:35

Hi ladies

Snow - could be a positive sign. Bloating was one of my main symptoms and I now fart so much I think I could power a car on my wind fgrin

Runner05 Wed 23-Dec-15 18:23:19

Hello ladies,

Runner, graduate lurker harbouring a 4+4 week old poppy seed.

Will gladly provide encouragement to poas... Am I still allowed to be the president of pissy sticks anonymous if I'm a grad??? wink

StarkyTheDirewolf Wed 23-Dec-15 18:27:04

runner you are our resident piss stick captain! Don't you dare go anywhere! We need you!

StarkyTheDirewolf Wed 23-Dec-15 18:31:31

Forgot to say, I woke up this morning after having the most vivid dream ever! Clearly ttc is at the forefront of my mind because in my dream it was like groundhog day, every day doing okp's, and then af was late and I was changing okp's for poas, and I kept getting bfp's, but then it would change to bfn's! Woke up thinking I was maybe pregnant, then realised it was a dream! Sooo vivid and sooooo odd!

Snowdog37 Wed 23-Dec-15 18:41:44

I have been having vivid dreams too! This morning I woke up crying, which was weird, and the last thing I remember in my dream was walking up to my dad in the pub and in my lower vision I had a pregnant belly 😜 And I started crying happy tears in my dream as I think I was telling/showing him I was pregnant but in real life we live on separate continents so it's unlikely is bump into him in the pub. I woke up actually crying. Totally freaked dh out. All my dreams lately have been what I call Glorious Technicolor Dreams lol where they're bright and vivid like watching a movie. Probably because I have a lot on my mind. I do enjoy dreaming though unless it's a scary one...

KatOnATinRo0f Wed 23-Dec-15 18:43:03

I'm* Kat*, age 28
Cycle 5 (this is taking a lot longer than I was expecting) after coming off pill end Aug (after 15 years)
CD6 of a 26 ish day cycle
No idea when I ovulate but think it might be earlier than "normal".
Have just invested in hundreds of pissy sticks so can be runner-in-training.
No symptoms as not fertile yet.
Eagerly assessing CM for any eggy signs
(How gross does that sound?!?)

Runner - what happened at the docs??

00Bubbles00 Wed 23-Dec-15 18:54:30

Thanks for encouragement everyone! I think we'll hop onboard and see what happens. Still feeling TOTALLY cheated to discover that actually its really quite tricky to get pregnant! I have learnt one thing today I didn't know - Ibruprofen (NSAIDS generally) can inhibit ovulation (anti-inflammatory inhibits process of releasing egg). (I come from family of doctors, feel like I really should have known this stuff before now). Recommendation is to avoid if possible.

00Bubbles00 Wed 23-Dec-15 18:54:55

p.s. Runner we totally need you to stay as our POAS champion!

00Bubbles00 Wed 23-Dec-15 18:55:59

(worries the Ibuprofen thing is obvious and everyone else knows).

StarkyTheDirewolf Wed 23-Dec-15 19:02:42

snow now I'm singing 'any dream will do' Jason Donovan version and it's your fault! fgrin

kat ikwym, I've been studying my fanny juice too, I was in new look with Dh and felt a bit soggy, seriously considered pretending I was going to try on a dress so I could investigate! I didn't though!

bubbles I didn't know about ibuprofen unil you've just told me now! You are not alone!

Canters15 Wed 23-Dec-15 19:04:50

Canters, 29.

Cycle 1, cd 26, AF due today but not here, and too scared to test again after bfn on Monday.

Bubbles, I didn't know the ibuprofen thing. Don't worry (smile)

Canters15 Wed 23-Dec-15 19:05:41

Pahahahahaha STARKY! I just laughed so hard I almost weed myself
