I thought I may as well start up the April bus since af rudely kicked me off the February bus, and my dh isn't here for March!

Been ttc #4 since September last year. Tricky as dh works abroad so much! I think I'm due to ov on the 3rd of April and dh is home on the 1st, so fx we catch it! I'll be testing round about 17th April.

Anyone else ready to hop on board to keep me company? I have a large bag of mini eggs to share <shakes packet> grin

Tabitha78 Mon 29-Feb-16 20:38:13

ooo, mini eggs! I'll hop on smile. I'll bring the creme eggs - got to have both!

We were planning ttc #1 in March but have delayed by a month. I've learned so much already from following the March bus so will hang out here until I finally get my coil out towards the end of the month!

weechops Tue 01-Mar-16 12:05:05

Hi Tabitha smile ooh I do like a Creme egg!
How exciting trying for baby #1 !!

cakesandphotos Tue 01-Mar-16 14:24:51

Can I join? I'm hoping to get a BFP this month but it's not looking too likely so I figured I'd join the April bus! also the march bus is already pretty full and I'm slightly too scared to join in

Tabitha78 Tue 01-Mar-16 17:31:26

Weechops - yes, was beginning to think it was never going to happen - hopefully my age won't be too much of any issue!

Cakes - come join us! I've got some Lindor chocs from work to hand around today wink

cakesandphotos Tue 01-Mar-16 17:46:00

Ooh lovely! All I got at work was a half sucked carrot stick :p (I'm a nanny)
What's everyone's stats?
I'm 27, TTC #1 cycle 1

weechops Tue 01-Mar-16 19:11:23

Hi cakes What a fab job!

Tabitha how old are you, if you don't mind sharing?

My stats are :
age : 36
ttc #4 (dd is 9, ds1 is 5, ds 2 is 2)
cycle : 5, but dh works abroad 3 months at a time, so missed a few!!
etd : 17th April

Hoping this is the lucky bus. When we were ttc ds2 I got my bfp on April Fools Day!

I will join if that's ok - we decided to TTC dc2 a few weeks ago but april is the first month I'll be properly trying. I'd also ideally like a 2017 baby (for various boring and practical issues mostly related to work) so I'm not too sad to have entirely missed the Feb window, and I think a march BFP would still give me a 2016 baby so will be having lots of headaches next month blush

age - 32
ttc - no2
cycle - will be cycle 3 off the pill but cycle 1 of really trying
etd - mid april sometime, still not sure exactly how long my cycles are

exciting stuff!

Tabitha78 Thu 03-Mar-16 10:41:08

Welcome ohno!

Weechops my stats are:

age : 37 (nearly 38)
ttc #1
cycle : 1
Ov window: 27-31 mar
Etd: I think about 7 April

So I've been struggling pinning down my fertile window. I got a positive (or at least it looked positive to me) opk on cd10 and then it went to nothing. Ovia reckoned my fertile window was the following week but today, cd 19, I had a fairly strong test line on my opk so I assume I'll ovulate either tomorrow or Sunday which is cd 20/21. Definitely thinking I'll be looking for my BFP in April rather than March!

weechops Fri 04-Mar-16 13:08:11

Hi ohno

cakes what opks do you use? I use the cheapy OneStep ones <ahem 3 a day from cd 10> 😳 And they've always been pretty good. I 'treated myself' to the clear blue dual hormone one last month. Cd11 today and got a flashing smiley. Hoping I don't ov til at least cd15 so that next cycle is on track for dh coming home!

Devgal Fri 04-Mar-16 14:02:00

Please can I hop on? I have got Milkybar giant buttons?!

My stats are:

age: 25
TTC #1
cycle : 1
PCOS so although much better, cycles are still irregular so not 100& what my ov window is. To give AF a chance to be late though, I will test 9th April.

cakesandphotos Fri 04-Mar-16 14:16:56

weechops I use the cheapy Amazon ones. I also use them 3 times a day if I'm not working blush otherwise usually twice. I wish I could get the digital ones but until I know when I ovulate roughly, I think I'll stick to the cheap ones! I have a digital hpt squirrelled away to use when I'm certain I'm pregnant!

hi dev! Welcome! Definitely welcome with the chocolate buttons! I feel bad that I've only contributed a sucked carrot sticks rummages in car door pocket I have some bits left from a giant chocolate coin if anyone is interested?!

underrugsswept Sun 06-Mar-16 19:36:05

Hello. Some familiar names on here. Let's hope April is the one for us!

Tabitha78 Sun 06-Mar-16 21:06:23

Hi Underrug. Did AF get you?

underrugsswept Mon 07-Mar-16 09:19:10

Yeah, afraid so. I keep looking back at the photo of my very faint BFP in case I imagined it. Better luck this month hopefully.

underrugsswept Mon 07-Mar-16 09:20:23

Might as well add my stats:

Early 30s
TTC #2 (fell pg first cycle last time)
Cycle #5

Devgal Mon 07-Mar-16 13:40:39

Despite me throwing away the last lot of OPK sticks I had in a rage when I found out they are pretty much useless with PCOS, since my cycles have regulated much more I have cracked and bought some more. Mostly due to 2 different apps giving me different ov windows (almost a week apart and quite crucial this week due to DH being away!!) I am on CD 12 today and did a test with a very faint line. I will just keep going and see it I get a positive, but in anyone else's experience, does the line gradually get darker until a positive or it that just my wishful thinking?!

AskPrayHope Mon 07-Mar-16 16:18:54

Hi all (Hi again Underrugs, believe we met on the March bus!)

I hope I can save a seat on this bus if that's ok? Although not totally off the March bus I started having mid-cycle bleeding today sad (not implantation & not ovulation as on CD15 out of 30 & no positive OPK yet)

So yep, pretty sure that's me out! sad

So my April stats are:
Name: Ask
Age: 25
Cycle: 6
TTC: #1

Good luck to everyone flowersflowers

underrugsswept Mon 07-Mar-16 17:40:55

Hi again Ask. <waves> You're very welcome here of course but don't count yourself out just yet. One of my good friends is currently pregnant with #1 despite never getting a positive OPK - they are tricky little buggers!

weechops Mon 07-Mar-16 19:58:18

Evening all.

Devgal if you keep testing you should see the line get darker. If it's a positive opk, the line has to be as dark as (or darker than) the control line. I test around 11am, 2pm, 6pm usually.

Cd14 today and tested with the clear blue digital- got another Flashing smiley first thing this morning, tested again with an ic this afternoon and its positive, so the surge really does happen that quickly.

I gave in to sugar cravings after dinner, and cracked open one of the Easter eggs I'd put away 🙈 Malteser shard anyone? 😂

cakesandphotos Mon 07-Mar-16 20:18:54

I'm struggling to get anywhere with my OPKs. They were super dark after my AF last time but then faded and have been up and down since then. I'm trying to temp and use cervical fluid as a gauge instead

AskPrayHope Mon 07-Mar-16 20:48:08

No, I never seem to have any luck with them either cakesandphotos, so after these few run out that'll be it for me. Too much stress!!

I'd like too stay positive Underrugs but it's hard work lol.

Devgal Tue 08-Mar-16 09:46:14

weechops thanks, I did another today and it is ever so slightly darker, so will keep going. This is my first cycle TTC so I just wanted to see what it was all looking like then ease off the OPK and any other form of crazy I might have taken on!

cakesandphotos Tue 08-Mar-16 12:27:40

I'm bleeding a bit today on CD23 so I think I'm definitely off the March BFP bus sad fx for April!
