Bare with me I'm not quite with the abbreviation lingo yet so apologies.
I'm 31, and hoping to be adding to my family asap. I'm on my second month of trying after having my coil removed. I've never really had periods whilst using the coil and unsure about my cycle so we've just been having sex a lot and hoping for the best. I began what I think was my first AF post coil on Friday.
So if anyone is as obsessed with me about ttc and wanting to chat please do. It's hard keeping all this at bay with my friends and family.

Hey I'm also 31. Ttc number 4, had a MC last week. Good luck hun

Nw85 Tue 01-Nov-16 14:43:38

So sorry to hear that, how many weeks were you? We're also on number 4, my eldest is 13 then I have a 10year old and youngest is 8.

Wife1985 Tue 01-Nov-16 15:46:40

About 6 and half weeks but we couldn't be sure because I never missed a period so we had to use the last known period but they said my sac only looked 5 weeks. Mine are 9,5 and 2

I'm also ttc #4. Mine are 12, 11 and 8. Will be #1 with new partner though. Now on cd 62, lots of bfn. No sign of AF.

It's frustrating Isn't it. I don't know if I'm coming or going, I'm hoping it's straight forward, have loads of sex, get pregnant and all be easy. But the back of my head says you're older, you're tired without pregnancy, it won't be that easy and straight forward.

Hey ladies,

I'm in my first proper cycle of TTC. Came off the pill about 3 1/2 months ago but used protection up until the wedding/honeymoon 3 weeks ago. I think I just missed ovulation then though and am coming up for my first hopefully this week/end. I'm trying to be really casual about it all but the more I think about it and read up it seems less easy! I've been keeping a record of periods since the start of the year, learned about cervical mucus a few days ago and have already bought a pack of OPKs to make sure I do ovulate this week. Already feel crazy confused sorry to

I'll join in too if you don't mind. Starting cycle 4. 39yrs old and ttc #1 with dh. Thought we'd managed it in last cycle as I'd loads of symptoms, but have negative tests and now af has decided to pay a visit. So onto another month of trying waiting and hoping smile

Nw85 Wed 02-Nov-16 10:44:45

Well AF has left town, I downloaded an app to help me keep track of my cycle more, if things go to plan then my window starts from Sunday with ovulation due on the 10th. This is a good window for us as we're at a concert on Sunday night so a cliche "you were conceived after a concert" is great and it's OH B-Day on the 10th so I've got a good positive feeling about this cycle.
So I can test around 24/11 all going well.
I feel good for having a game plan 😂

charley2016 Sat 05-Nov-16 09:41:39

How's everyone feeling? Anybody ovulating yet? I got a positive ov stick yesterday but I thought I ov the week before! Looks like the app was wrong and hopefully my periods are becoming more regular after the pill! So all my efforts last weekend were wasted and we only DTD on Wednesday and then last night when I realised so I'm not feeling very positive for this month. I can already tell the waiting for 2 weeks is going to drive me crazy! Fingers crossed for everyone!

XxLaura37xX Sat 05-Nov-16 09:56:13

Hi hope don't mind me joining in xx
I have no idea about abbreviated text but I'm reading between the lines with some blanks xx
I started an ovulation calculator online as going to be trying in January but missed my period have taken pregnancy test and has came back positive 2-3 weeks , my problem is I didn't have sex then and had sex 1 week from period due. Going by online calculators would be a miracle and now think I'm in early menopause !!
Booked scan for Wednesday but just need to tell someone as we are keeping to ourself for now , I soooo don't understand how it all works and upset a min thinking I'm taking early menopause .
I hope you are all lucky with your calculations and efforts and not driving you too insane as I'm round the bend already and was meant to be starting January xxx

charley2016 Sat 05-Nov-16 10:01:11

Hi Laura,

Oh my goodness, that's crazy! What are your normal cycle lengths and which day of it did you have sex? Sometimes people can ovulate later than they think and some can get a positive after implantation at 6-7 days so it may be that you are! I've ovulated a week after the app said so it might be that you're the same! I'd be buying a ton of tests right now haha!

XxLaura37xX Sat 05-Nov-16 10:09:35

I truly don't no my cycle and had just started the online calculator thing that helps you conceive .
I had my coil removed early this year but our sex life is basically non existent confused as have 4 year old in our bed xx
My last period started on 22/09 and we has sex on the 18/10 but my first test was done last sat and got 2-3 pregnant xx
I have done 4 now all saying same and thought would of changed to 3 this morning but hasn't xx

lynseyc83 Sat 05-Nov-16 10:21:00

I'm lynsey 33 also trying to conceive
for number 3
1st is now four
2nd still born in July at 30 weeks
So hoping for number -3 soon

5 days till my period is due feeling slightly nauseous today keeping my fingers and toes cross. Finding it very hard not to use a first response but I don't want to be disappointed so I'm going to wait till Thursday when I'm
Due and try them if no signs
Good luck to everyone trying

XxLaura37xX Sat 05-Nov-16 10:22:34

Everything X for you smile

charley2016 Sat 05-Nov-16 10:33:14

Good luck Lyndsey. I'm going to do the same and try and gold out for period date but I'm already betting I won't! grin

Laura, that does seem a bit strange! Although I'm sure stranger things have happened! It may be higher level of Hgc and therefore showing later than you are. Twins maybe? I don't think menopause would give you a high enough level to be showing 2-3 weeks but I could be wrong! I'll have my fingers firmly crossed for you! How are you feeling?

Nw85 Sat 05-Nov-16 10:36:32

Well we're still at it every day.. I do feel a bit like a "cum bucket" tbh (sorry for crude language) also I've heard about checking cervical mucus... but if I'm honest I'm not doing a thorough clean up after sex so how do I tell the difference between seamen and mucus. I'm going start using ovulation tests from Tuesday onwards as I guess of I had a normal cycle then I'd be ovulating Thursday...
We're putting so much effort in to getting pregnant that it's all we're both thinking about.

Hope scan goes well and it is a baby in there :-) don't forget sperm can live up to ,5 days in the body and you could of ovulated late that month.

charley2016 Sat 05-Nov-16 10:44:17

Haha I love the expression 'cum bucket' literally just made me laugh out loud!!! I'm hoping that now I know I've ovulated I will chill out a little be for the next 3 weeks.... Although I'm not promising haha! So at least if you're using the sticks, you can have a little rest after smile

XxLaura37xX Sat 05-Nov-16 10:45:59

Feeling worried as no physical signs just exhausted but I have 4 year old with condition that has me at min fighting with fully assisted needs school to get her into private school with round clock health care xx
I thought the stress of everything might of pushed me into early menopause but I truly hope your right and I am pregnant .
We have put of having another until partners divorce finally through and were in perfect position to announce to our family's as we both have family from previous xx and my 4 year old went down like lead balloon xx it's all a bit messed up xx
We booked a scan for Wednesday so all going to plan will see if pregnant xx I just want to sleep until I find out and stop worrying xx we soooo wanted another next year and when I seen positive last week I didn't want but now I want more than anything xxx

XxLaura37xX Sat 05-Nov-16 10:50:56

your lucky with all the efforts , I would of loved a lot of effort xx lol xx my partner is as proud as punch thinking he has super sperm not needing much effort xx just hope he has as will be but upsetting for him I think more so than me xx
Will add my result wed night after home around 9pm xx scans at 7.15pm and feels like forever away xx thanks for reply xx

charley2016 Sat 05-Nov-16 11:05:02

Sounds like you have a lot on Laura! Hopefully it will at least mean that the week goes quickly for you!
My hubby is the same, said he didn't want to properly try, just see what happens, but now he's already asking if I've ovulated and when we can eat. He's 10 yrs older than me and had very tough teen years so I'm scared we find it difficult because I know he will think it's his fault as he says quite often he thinks he will find it difficult!
Would be amazing if you had fallen without really trying. Would give us some hope too as since joining in starting to think the more I read the more difficult it all looks!!
I'll defo be looking out for your results on Wednesday! Xxx

XxLaura37xX Sat 05-Nov-16 11:39:59

My other half 12 years older xx lol xx will be 50 next year xx well if it is good news I would defo recommend organic maca powder xx lol xx
We started making organic shakes for healthy energy boosts as used to drink packs of red bull xx turns out helps fertility also as has maca powder in it along with other great stuff xx will give you the recipe as will be a miricle xxx
I sooo hope everyone on here eventually gets there wish xxx

charley2016 Sat 05-Nov-16 15:20:50

Ooh that sounds good! I'll have to investigate! We're just back from honeymoon 2 weeks ago so I'm still eating and drinking absolute rubbish as I'm trying to get caught up with 3 weeks off work and uni. Just managed to DTD again this afternoon, not sure if it can have any effect after the dark ov test yesterday but that's me done worrying about it. Going to try relax for the next 2 weeks as it's probably ridiculous to think it will happen after 1 cycle hmm
