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! It messes with your head and makes you crazy crazier

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. A more lovely, supportive group of ladies you couldn't wish to meet. We've got a few grads sticking around I won't leave and no question is too daft. We have opk experts, cervical mucus management teams and symptom spotters extraudinaire!

Woo, new thread!

TTC #1
Cycle 10
Have PCOS.

Congrats Kwick on your egg! Fx that magic potion does it's job and you get a nice little blastocyst to put back!

Cd 10 today and my fertility monitor says it's high fertility. Seems early for me. I've started agnus castus this cycle (after the epic 61 day cycle I've just had), so I wonder if that's having an effect.

I went to an Ann Summers party last week organised by a colleague. Bought a couple of sexy numbers blush in the hope that it might make dtd a bit more regular and not so much going through the motions.
It erm, seems to have worked lol!

kwick Wed 31-Aug-16 12:31:27

Nice to see you nicky please take the peace of mind the MOT afforded - you mark my words you will be with child before the year is out grin

Thanks for the new thread Alice and for the laugh - that picture is hilarious!grin

25 and happily married 5 years
TTC #1 since early 2015
CP June '15
Lost count of what cycle I'm on now. About 4-5 cycles have been bust for various reasons. Only started charting, joined online communities, opks etc in Feb/March 2016 after getting AF on my 25th birthday (6 days late) and having the mother of all meltdowns.
MC July '16 sad

Emotionally drained but still hoping we can finally start our family for real very soon.

Yay Kwick amazing news. Fx for you!
Hep looking forward to your next scan update!

AudreyBradshaw Wed 31-Aug-16 13:03:02

It was kwick Was just my cycles were soooo long that it seemed an eternity, I was on the thread from the first one too which was end of September starting if I remember rightly and because was tracking my ovulation, but not actively ttc until December. But I always hope that it will give others a boost because despite long as balls and being unsure if I was ovulating consistently, I still got a bfp. It can be done!

Really got my fx for you!

marmitecheesetoast Wed 31-Aug-16 13:18:47

Ooh new thread! Love the gorilla! grin

Marmite, 31. Two cats, a tomato plant and a ~7+3 raspberry (according to Ovia) BFP on cycle 3 with loooong 38 day cycles. Fairly certain I concieved the day I got shat on by a pigeon grin

Still lurking waiting to see more bfps which I know are just around the corner!

Woohoo congrats on the fertilised egg kwick!! Fx for Friday!

Glad the Anne summers outfits are doing the trick pug grin

Quite jealous of all the dtd, have only dtd once since getting BFP a month ago... Have just really not felt like it at all but am missing the closeness with DH after all the regular ttc dtd. Maybe will try and get back on it this weekend hmm

Have got to dash lunch hour over 5 mins ago! Hope everyone else is OK!

WingingIt83 Wed 31-Aug-16 15:07:24

Hurrah new shiney thread!


Age 32
Cycle. ...6? Oh god I've lost track!

Regular cycles of 28 days apart from one on cycle 3 or 4 where the bitch teased me with a 36 day-er. Generally a late ovulation means a constant battle to lengthen luteal phase.

bluebird3 Wed 31-Aug-16 19:50:17

Hi everyone

Age 30
Ttc #1
Cycle 19..20? Started April 2015

It's been a long haul. No CPs, no MCs, just no BFPs ever. 2 day 21 bloods confirm I'm not ovulating (or not regularly) despite regular 28 day cycles. Dh just had a SA test that showed moderately low speed count. Waiting for another blood test and SA test before GP will refer to the fertility clinic.

Trying to be patient as its dsis wedding abroad in May and wouldn't want to miss it really. Original plan was to have a couple months off ttc in order to not miss it, but after the SA results we decided to f* it and keep trying bc you never know.

I tend to dip in and out of the thread depending on how well I'm coping but always come back to see how everyone is getting on. Really excited for you kwick! Best of luck for Friday. smile
