Hugh enjoys ISW and his love affair with Doreen. He watches out for skittle tits and weepyitis. Mrs Arseholey Fucknut (Af) shows up when you least want her but brings wine and soft cheese as a consolation prize.

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 you're pregnant in the tww That is paramount!

We don't get a lot of baby dust in these here parts. We want a fanny full of determined Doreen, not unicorn farts and gnome tears with extra sparkle. We've been going a while now so the novelty has somewhat worn off and we're slightly battle scarred and bruised in the cervix area.

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

When you post stats, add your predicted test/af date. We are currently running at about 49% pregnant with the grads thread over in ante-natal which we all hope to join soon.

Starky, 29. Feeling like a fraud to be posting! 4+5 with a pelvic imposter. Still feeling like af will arrive any second. She could, she's not due til tomorrow. It's been like shroedingering on acid!

Been in shock still but new blog posts will be up ASAP!

Glad this is Lucky Thread 13 x2 - I had a good feeling about no. 13 and it has proved lucky for so many of us.

I'm Jem
I'm 32
This is cycle 3
CD 29

AF is due today according to trusty Pink Pad. However I ovulated a day later than the app predicted, so I think I will probably come on tomorrow.
It's been a relatively calm TWW, apart from when I cried when I mistakenly thought someone had text me. For the first time since TTC I haven't convinced myself I'm preggo - which is progress.
If there is no sign of AF tomorrow I will test. Eek.

HepKestrel Wed 23-Mar-16 10:54:12

36 (with 37 hiding round the corner .... sad)

OH works away in the week, home tomorrow, so looking forward to long easter weekend wink
bus ticket (AF) for 13th April

New thread! let's hope it's as lucky for those of us going through Shroedinger's Pregnancies right now as the last thread was. smile

Sorry I don't post as regularly as some of you - I do keep an eye on the thread though and was so pleased for everybody upduffed last time around!

I'm Kav. I'm 37, on DPO 4 of cycle 3 and looking to test on 1 April. I have relatively short cycles - on CD14 at the moment - so hoping my luteal phase is adequate. Tried the SMEP for the first time this month though due to DH's illness couldn't quite complete it. Still, more chilled this month than I was last, and took EPO the start of this period which seemed to help matters out a bit (I've been the human Sahara the last couple of cycles).

Good luck everybody, hoping to celebrate with as many of you as possible - and Starky you're totally not an imposter! I think everybody on this thread wants you to stick around. smile

Littlepixie85 Wed 23-Mar-16 11:06:37

Thought I would join the new thread! I got a pos clear blue dig ovulation this morning so going to DTD as much as poss in the next couple of days before settling in for the TWW :-) stats-wise I'm 31 tomorrow (ovulation & birthday!) TTC #1 and been trying about 10 months.

Flashinthepan Wed 23-Mar-16 11:11:46

Shiny new thread. It's like the excitement when you buy a new notebook!
Cycle 1
CD 17

No idea whats going on. Boobs super sore for the last few days and weird bleeding, I suspect either unpregnant hormonal changes or my lady parts have a cruel sense of humour.

islandgirl99 Wed 23-Mar-16 11:20:03

starky I agree, please stick around! We need your chat (and possibly some of your luck to rub off on us all!)

I'm 38
On cycle 8
CD 11
AF due 13th April

This cycle I'm taking a more laid back approach to it all. I thought about trying SMEP but instead went the other way - still taking EPO but no opks, no strict schedule for dtd. Me and dh know when ISW should be so just going to dtd a few times when we feel like it during the magic window and see what happens. Taking a slightly longer term view of the whole thing now, so rather than focusing too much on this month, I'm just trying to give it time and thinking it's likely to happen some time in the next few months.

Of course I say that now, but we have our appointment at the fertility clinic on Tuesday so they may put the fear of god into me about my age again and I may be a jibbering wreck again after that smile

Mooseville Wed 23-Mar-16 11:43:56

Wow, congrats kwick and elle fab news!!!!! This thread will be lucky for us all eventually I can feel it!!

Cycle 2
Am having a very calm two week wait as there is zero chance of it happening this month with only 1 shag 5 days before ovulation.... DP was ill and I was ill before him but that didn't stop tears and tantrums when he wouldn't DTD after my positive OPK! Trying to be a bit more relaxed about it now, next month is unlikely as I'm away for two weeks with work over ISW so I'm just trying to be patient and trying to get healthy and have fun (ie drink wine) while I can!!!

FXSkip Wed 23-Mar-16 12:52:57

Starky you cannot leave us, you are fundamental to this group - we'd lose our shit and be pissing on sticks all over the place without you.

Cycle 4, CD 12 (How did that happen?!)

On day 1 of a juice cleanse, so feeling pretty pap just now but the good thing is that babies are the last thing on my mind right now. Feeling MUCH calmer after the crazy first 2 cycles and now much more focused on my health and wellbeing as well as strengthening my relationship with OH. Still loving all the chat here, but missing all the originals who are now upduffed!

Mileymoocow Wed 23-Mar-16 12:58:31

So glad it's thread 13 take 2. So much good luck last thread it'd be a shame to move on!

With an 11+2 profiterole sized womb raider

SuchaJem Wed 23-Mar-16 13:10:40

welcome littlepixie

Yes agreed with fxskip - we need you starky or we will lose our POAS shit!

Littlepixie85 Wed 23-Mar-16 13:23:21

Thanks for the welcome :-) I was lurking on the last thread but thought I would join in the new one as I will be starting the TWW in a couple of days and this seems like a really positive (and lucky!) group!

Evergreen15 Wed 23-Mar-16 13:34:02

Hola [waves]
Thanks starky stargrin
Ever 34 (only a few weeks left)
Cycle #5
AF due let me check Kat's list 17th of April

I am starting EPO and Vitex Agnus Cactus this month smile
I wrote a big post answering to all the lovely ladies that replied to me but I posted it in the old thread

Thanks everyone for your comments smile

If anyone is interested, I've just been reading a Guardian article about fertility tracking and apps, and the data collection/tech side of it all.

Warning, it is VERY long (maybe something for a lunch break or to read at home later). It's not about advice for TTC, but I found it interesting to hear about how fertility apps have come about (it's largely about Kindara, and also mentions Glow), and some history of fertility awareness. Also touches on the topic of data privacy, and marketing.

Checking in...
Age: 29
Status: 12 weeks today with a naughty, nausea-inducing apricot.

Evergreen15 Wed 23-Mar-16 13:37:38

Agnus castus not cactus confused

Ni4444 Wed 23-Mar-16 13:51:53

Thanks Stark (we'd be stuck with a full thread but bursting with the need to vent if we didn't have you!!) we would miss YOU!! Don't go! 😘

Cycle.... --counts on fingers--6!
Ovulation day today I reckon!
EPO, iron tablets, and pineapple post ovulation (next month I'm planning agnus cactus 🌵 haha and maybe coq10 and vitamin b complex in other words I'm going amazon crazy if AF shows!

Hi to newcomer Littlepixie!!

Ni4444 Wed 23-Mar-16 13:53:14

Ps Ever that was such a lovely message you left on the last thread... Sounded very hopeful and open minded there! Fingers crossed you manage to kick misery guts thinking out the window xx

Snowdog37 Wed 23-Mar-16 14:54:15

A quick hello from rainy Massachusetts ☔️☔️☔️ And many congrats to Kwick 🎉💐🎉💐🎉🎉🎉!!!! And anyone else I've missed? I can't keep up on my phone.
I'm 4dpo and have had mild cramps and backache all day yesterday and today. I know it's too early for anything. I've got an awful case of schrodingers pregnancy already.

LaraG13 Wed 23-Mar-16 16:21:16

Place marking!

Lara, 33, preggo with an 8+6 strawberry. Suffering with constant nausea and willing the next few weeks to pass quickly so the glowing can commence.

Still checking in often and hoping you all get your BFPs soon.

Peaches8Posies Wed 23-Mar-16 16:33:41

6+3 with a tiny seed that's somehow managing to make me wee non stop. Not complaining all for a good cause.

CONGRATULATIONS KWICK AND ELLE wishing you both a happy healthy 9 months xx

Hope you are all taking care of yourselves ladies. Can't wait till we are all grads together. 😊

LovelyFishy Wed 23-Mar-16 16:43:29

Cycle 8 started today (boo to Aunt Fucknuts! sad)
Next bus ticket for 20th April

Pugmummy87 Wed 23-Mar-16 17:13:55

Cycle 5
AF due 18th April

??possible chemical pregnancy at end of cycle 4, faint positive last Thursday (but appeared after time limit), af started Friday and bfn Saturday, on cd6 but temp has only just fallen and my flow has suddenly increased a lot today.

Ni you are not the only original left, I'm still here (not counting the above!)

Starky Please stay on this thread, wouldn't be the same without you. I love the support of this thread.

Tmi (sorry), but I've had to change tampons at least 2 hourly today, just what I needed in a busy clinic and they have been soaked through. Horrid cramps too. On cd6 as well. Hoping if it was a chemical, then the next one sticks!

FXSkip Wed 23-Mar-16 17:16:49

FX for you pug, sounds rough. I also had a crappy AF this month, just dragged on and on - made me think I might have had a chemical as its not normally like that.

LovelyFishy Wed 23-Mar-16 17:21:23

Love to both of you, it sounds like you're having a rough week! Lots of wine and brew to help you through.
