Symptom spotters, tww - ers, slightly hysterical hormone laden ladies! Regs, lurkers, intermittent posters! Our raison d'etre is 'am I pregnant?'

Thread 12. Welcome!

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.

Post your stats and add your dates. We have a register thanks to kats stats I have been dubbed the resident piss stick queen and if you don't test, you get a Starky's Star <Starky curtseys and straightens her tiara>

We don't have rules as such but expect to be talked down from the ledge with kind and well meaning but firm words if you get too hysterical. But most importantly don't convince yourself your pregnant in the tww

Starky, 29. No opk's, no cm inspection. 8 not checking ovia for cycle day purposes. Going in blind and conciously not pushing myself this cycle!

StarkyTheDirewolf Sat 27-Feb-16 12:40:19

Starky, 29, cd 12, no opk's, no cm inspection. Going in blind, not checking ovia except to confirm cycle day! Not pushing myself this cycle!

Well hello 😎

Jem, 32
Cycle 3, CD 5

Sounds good starky, what's your DTD strategy?

I'm planning on trying opks for the first time this cycle, and hoping for third time lucky xx

Confusedcat1 Sat 27-Feb-16 13:04:10

Cycle 4

Never temped or done opks, just try to dtd as much as possible during isw.

Hi all,

I joined the relaxed March/April thread but realised it was probably over optimistic to focus on a specific month!

Stats: Inspector, 35, TTC #1, Cycle 1, CD 12 although it is my first month off the pill after 17 years so it's probably not a typical CD12. Absolutely no idea what my body is going to do now it's flying solo :-/

We've not had the easiest start to TTC. As life would have it I've had to come back home this week because of a serious family illness so I've been away from DP and pretty stressed out and upset for the last few days. Things are thankfully looking a bit better now but I won't get home until tomorrow which, if (big if!) my cycle is a normal one should probably be the best day to have sex.

We shall see what happens but I am definitely not getting into temping/OPKs/early testing for a while yet!

Good luck to everyone and I hope there are lots of positive results headed to you all smile

Ni, 33, cycle 5 (hate writing that every frigging time!)
Methods of madness: EPO pre ov, pineapple post ov, forgot to use the pre-seed!
CD 23/28-33
4 or 5dpo

Peaches8Posies Sat 27-Feb-16 14:17:55

Ending cycle number 3 due to test end extra weekend, hopefully after won't show.
Also bought pre-seed and forgot I had it.
After clinging on to every little twinge, feeling, smell etc.. last month I'm trying (probably failing) to keep a lid on the madness this month.
Fx ladies xx

StarkyTheDirewolf Sat 27-Feb-16 14:38:29

jem we usually dtd every other day anyway, so I'm just planning in keeping that up if possible! If not, I'm not going to get upset about it. With dh training so much his sperm won't be optimum anyway for the next few months. So I'm not putting the pressure on myself now! Still taking folic acid and having a multi vitamin but the supplements he takes probably won't do us any favours. So I'm not stressing.

Although I saw ndn earlier with her lovely little bump and will admit I teared up briefly.

Jamjar12 Sat 27-Feb-16 14:46:56

Cycle 4

Stark, this will be an interesting experiment then if we're both playing the casual game this time!

Ooh new thread! We are racing through them!!

I'm Kat
28 years old
Cycle 7, In 2ww, day 20-something.
Testing/AF mar 7th

I'll get the list out in a bit and you can tell me of anything amended!

I am not going to use ovia, OPKs or prod my cervix next month. I'm going to have sex when we want to because we want to not because we have to. 7 cycles of stressing is taking its toll. Bored now. Lol

Welcome to newbies!

Hello everyone! smile
Age 34
Cycle 5 (hate typing that too!)
CD 5
This month I will be: trying to dtd more (poor effort last month), using EPO, OPKs/temping, possibly buying some preseed.

Not that keen on pineapple Ni, it makes my mouth hurt!

Starky are you sure you're not behind the Wait to Wee campaign?! wink

Mooseville Sat 27-Feb-16 16:38:55

Hello everyone!!

TTC #1
Cycle 1
6 dpo but don't have very high hopes for this month at all following the whole only DTD once saga!
Just off pill after 15 yrs, ovulation seemed to happen bang on time judging by OPK and CM so waiting to see if AF is also on time or if my cycles are messed up!

Had a lovely day at the Discover childhood centre in Stratford and build a bear with DP's neice. Just about to bake pink princess fairy cakes to keep her occupied while DP watches the rugby. This babysitting malarkey is easy peasy! Bloody tiring though though!!

StarkyTheDirewolf Sat 27-Feb-16 16:43:40

elle I wish I was! That's some alliteration I can get on board with! grin

jam I know, just going to see how it goes tbh. I've lost the will to be vigilant about it all atm! And it's not exciting, so I'm hoping injecting the "unknown" back in will bring some of the hopefulness back. I don't want it to feel like such a slog anymore!

kat I think I'm on for af about the 21st or March (or thereabouts)

miwelaisjacydo Sat 27-Feb-16 17:04:46

miwelaisjacydo Sat 27-Feb-16 17:05:40

LovelyFishy Sat 27-Feb-16 17:30:29

I do love autocorrect, a skittle baby sounds fun! grin

Ttc #1
Starting cycle 7

Why does everyone talk about pineapple? Is there something magical about them?

LaraG13 Sat 27-Feb-16 17:31:21

New thread!

Lara, 33
Got BFP last week, now 5+2 and obsession and worry about Ttc has shifted seamlessly to worry about things going wrong with pregnancy and googling miscarriage stats 🙈

Wishing you all BFPs soon, especially those who've been trying a while.

bellini really happy to hear your happy news. 💐

miwelaisjacydo Sat 27-Feb-16 17:33:26

Congrats Lara

Ttc1 cycle 3
Cycle day 23 of approx 32 and 5dpo

Methods: daily opk, ovia and ff, preseed.

Feefeefs Sat 27-Feb-16 17:41:45

Oh holy god at a party with lots of uni friends and just been baby bombed by a uni friend. Close friend Still no AF for me but could be Monday before it happens struggling to hold it together. DH not here! Thank god for you guys.

CD 29
Cycle 3 TTC 1

Kathrino Sat 27-Feb-16 17:48:16

I've been lurking recently due to work craziness and trying not to think about TTC too much. There is zero chance of a BFP this cycle (#3) and it's quite nice to have a break from the frantic symptom spotting of the last couple of months. Bring on the April bus!
