Symptom spotters, tww - ers, slightly hysterical hormone laden ladies! Regs, lurkers, intermittent posters! Our raison d'etre is 'am I pregnant?' Depending on how much Ovia (Whybird/Ovibitch) has pissed us off/messed with our fw she is either the oracle or a sanctimonious charlatan.

Just a warning, we move FAST! Our threads last on average, about a week before they're full.

Thread 10, Welcome one and all! Group of weirdos, wee hoarders, covert opk or okp, depending on what your autocorrect decides addicts with a side business in CM management!

We do not judge, we enjoy TMI, we i encourage waiting to poas nobody listens and all the grossness you can find from a group of intelligent, articulate ladies. Fart stories make us laugh, stories about cervical mucus, pooing, cysts and nausea equally welcome.

Post your stats and add your dates. We have a register thanks to kat, I have been dubbed the resident piss stick queen <Starky curtseys and straightens her tiara> loaaaaaads of bfp'ers who keep us positive! We don't have rules, we love a good symptom spot, we try to stay grounded and not be hysterical sometimes we manage it aswell

We like acronyms, we make some up: PET = Proper expensive test. We love the d(h)...which can of course mean 'dearest' or 'dickhead' why, what were you thinking?

Starky 29, Cycle 2. Cd 25 (of a 37-42 average) 8dpo, no notable cm today. Jelly legs have been a real problem this week, as has Vibro-tum. Roll on next week for the end of purgatory the tww.

firstgo1984 Sun 07-Feb-16 17:52:58

Cycle 3
CD45 (cycles 32-77 days post-pill)
? 11dpo, sore boobs and very sensitive nipples. Felt a bit sick on waking today

Kat: EPO = Evening Primrose Oil. I've seen it mentioned frequently as something that can increase cervical mucus.

KatOnATinRo0f Sun 07-Feb-16 18:15:03

that would make a whole entire world more sense!! Does it actually work???

Thanks for nice new thread Starky!

Sorry you're feeling down Ctul. Sending hugs and chocolates brew cake chocolate

Come on eggo, let's get preggo grin Jem! Will try not to mutter that while dtd this week. FW starts tomorrow according to ovia but I've had EWCM since fri. Kind of hope she's wrong as we've managed to dtd a few times over the weekend but are a bit crap at fitting it in during the week.

Kwick709 Sun 07-Feb-16 18:33:48

Wow a new thread already!

SuchaJem Sun 07-Feb-16 18:37:35

elle hehe nicked from our new thread title smile

Not sure if this will work for you too but I find it works if we DTD when I get in from work, rather than when we go to bed, as always just ready to sleep as soon as it get past about 10pm zzzzzZZZZ

Mileymoocow Sun 07-Feb-16 18:46:27

Upduffed on cycle #2 and cooking a 4+6 poppy seed and a whole bunch of crazy and anxiety. Silly me thought that would piss off once I got my 2 lines

Feefeefs Sun 07-Feb-16 18:48:07

Where in Northern California did you live ever?

Thanks sucha it did feel like a breakthrough!

So sorry to hear that ipatches it's lousy. hope you're looking after yourself. thanks

Feeling a lot more positive now and also have decided not to obsess like I did last month!! I'll still use opks as my period is so irregular and I may temp too. I'm taking EPO up until ovulation and I've cut my caffeine intake to one-two coffees a day, otherwise I'm drinking fertility boosting herbal teas. Also mindful of what I'm eating. Just need to make time for some exercise. Fx for all of you this cycle smile

firstgo1984 Sun 07-Feb-16 18:56:02

A few little cramps this evening. I assune this is a fair sign AF may appear in a couple of days

TTC #1
Cycle 6 sad
CD 27 of a 26 (or so I thought) day cycle. Awaiting imminent AF and wishing it would hurry up so I could get rid of this glimmer of hope!
Symptoms- v tender and swollen boobs. Other than that, nada.

Kathrino Sun 07-Feb-16 19:16:29

Been a bit absent recently as nothing much to report but glad I found the new thread!

Kathrino, 32
Currently CD4 of cycle 3 so bang in the middle of AF.

Doubt February will be our month but we just booked our accommodation for our belated honeymoon in April/May so it won't be the worst thing in the world if I remain unpreggo until then. NB there might be an element of reverse psychology in my thinking...

Cthulhoo, lots of thanksthanksthanksthanksthanks for you.

LillianFullStop Sun 07-Feb-16 19:18:32

Sorry you are feeling down ct - I hope the lovely ladies here will help in some way to cheer you up. It's a stressful time for all of us but I'm glad we have this thread

kat a wedding in Greece sounds amazing esp when your DH organised it all and all you have to do is enjoy it! You're not out yet though!

I'm planning to start the gym again myself this week - being fit and healthy is meant to make for an easier pregnancy and childbirth... look at optimistic me 4 days until I'm due to test!

TTC #1

Been trying since Sept 2014. Irregular periods since coming off pill - just 3 in 18 months. Had mc at 9 weeks the week before Xmas. No idea what's going to happen to cycle now or when gp will consider referring me again to fertility dept.

ZazzlesTheCat2 Sun 07-Feb-16 19:22:08

kat - have you poas? (Sorry if you've said already - can't keep up!)

31 years old
TTC #1
Cycle 3
CD 14 / 28 - ovulation day today! Dtd on CD 11-13 and will again tonight so I'm really hoping this cycle is the one. But I'll be holding out for a starky star and poas on CD28 who am I kidding

ElleSarcasmo Sun 07-Feb-16 19:24:03

Oh just saw that Jem! smile That is a good idea about trying to do it after work...I have told DH he needs to shag me tomorrow (romantic!)...we'll see what happens!

Fx for you Kat, you totally deserve some good news! flowers

How are you doing Bellini?

KatOnATinRo0f Sun 07-Feb-16 19:27:50

Zazzle yup poas this morning - IC and sainsburys own brand both bigfatnada.
A tiny piece of me is really hoping they just aren't sensitive enough to detect it yet and AF won't arrive... But I think she's just teasing me. V mild cramps starting now so I guess she'll turn up. Maybe even before midnight and then she won't even end up late after all just pissing me off all day by not being here already!!

ElleSarcasmo Sun 07-Feb-16 19:28:08

Holly what teas are meant to boost fertility? Drink a ton of herbal/fruit teas anyway so may as well try to drink the right ones! I am trying to get healthy too, have started exercising more and trying to eat 'healthy'.

Have any of you using EPO noticed a difference in CM?
