Hi everyone

So I'm TTC number two, been under a month so not too long) and it is also my first time doing it. (My DS was a happy accident lol). Currently on af so a slight pause on DTD sad
I'm currently doing OPKS to track when I'm ovulating and if I am.
So I was wondering if anybody who is in the same-ish boat as me would like to join me on the journey.

I'm in a similar boat, trying for number two and currently on AF so waiting it out to try again. My daughter is nearly five and we have been trying since February properly. I fell pregnant In July but unfortunately lost the baby at three months, so trying again and trying not to become absolutely obsessed with it. Tracking ov with tests and logging my data (how I'm feeling CM taking folic acid) into an app x

Aw I'm sorry for your loss.
It's really hard to not get obsessed isn't it. Haven't been ttc for that long and I can't seem to go a day without doing an OPK lol started on the folic acid too. it's taking over already haha probably won't be long before I'm checking my cervix lol x

I do an ovulation every day too confused even though I know it's not till 14th, couldn't face missing it! Are you taking any supplements to help you along? It's something I'm looking into x

DrRBannerx Fri 11-Nov-16 16:32:32

And thank you smileflowers

Rainydayzandmondays13 Fri 11-Nov-16 18:10:12

Oh i know that feeling. That little voice in your head getting you worried it'll be earlier lol
Only folic acid at the moment. What ones are you looking into? I'm interested too lol x

I'm looking at reviews of fertilaid, and omega 3 and changing diet to loads of dark green leafy stuff everyday.. Have a look at fertilaid on amazon and read the reviews x

Hi can I join please x
I'm currently trying again my daughter is 44months and we fell pregnant straight away, this time it's not so easy, getting stressed trying to fit doing the deed with my partner doing police shift patterns, feeling poorly/knackered and the constant pressure.
I was convinced I was pregnant last month had loads is symptoms but I came on regular as clockwork.
I have some ovulation tests but don't really understand them, I'm pretty sure I've worked out my ovulating time ( this weekend actually) I have started using conceive lubricant which has great reviews, so hoping I will be pregnant soon!!

I'm almost in the same boat.

DS1 was conceived on the combined pill due to a few missed pills on holiday.
He is now 2yr 4m. I have just stopped taking the combined pill, my withdrawal bleed has started today, I'm having a pill free month and plan to TTC after my first proper period. I have ovulation sticks at the ready!

DrRBannerx Fri 11-Nov-16 21:27:03

Good luck ladies, baby dust for you x

DR - I hate it when that happens. I usually scream out noooooo lol I have been thinking about a change in my diet to help with it all. Will definitely have a look at the reviews x

Rainydayzandmondays13 Sat 12-Nov-16 13:08:18

Lily - welcome. The more the merrier smile fingers crossed for you. There's always something that comes up when ttc to be make it even more difficult lol but stress definitely doesn't help much.
I'm pretty much the same with the ov tests . Have yet to to ovulate but hopefully soon.

Fingers crossed you get you're bfp soon x

Rainydayzandmondays13 Sat 12-Nov-16 13:11:28

Mummy - aww my first DS was conceived out of stupidity lol no contraception and we though the pull out method was safe. You live and learn lol
That's good it's happened so soon, I read about women waiting ages for their withdrawal bleed.
We all have them ready and waiting lol

Good luck. Fingers crossed for your bfp soon x

Can I join you please, in anticipation of actually being able to TTC #2 at some point very soon?!
DC1 is 4 and we've been TTC #2 since April this year. I did conceive in July, but heartbreakingly lost our precious baby at 11 weeks after a week of hell. It's been a long and complicated miscarriage and still not over yet sad
I am praying for my cycle to return soon so that we can try again.
Fingers crossed for BFPs for all of us smile

DrRBannerx Sat 12-Nov-16 19:45:21

Hey dt your story sounds the same as mine, I also fell in July and lost my baby in November, if anything it's making me worse because I was so excited finally being pregnant and I want it back. DD is 4 nearly 5 and we've been TTC since February x

MrsY87 Sat 12-Nov-16 20:11:21

Hi ladies can I join you too? Sorry to hear so many of you have experienced losses, we have been ttc since march and have had two mc at six weeks one in Aug and one in October, I just desperately want to be pregnant again.

DD is just 2 and was conceived first try so I naively thought it would be as easy second time around, but seems I was very wrong! How long did it take you all to conceive your first DC?
Fingers crossed for sticky BFPs for us all soon! smile

DT2016 Sat 12-Nov-16 20:56:26

DrR (not sure how to do the bold letters?!) - I know exactly what you mean. I'm aching to be pregnant again and miss our baby so much. It's so frustrating not to even be able to start trying again when my body refuses to heal angry I hope you are recovering well flowers

MrsY - My DC1 took ages to come along, but I finally fell pregnant 3 months after having HSG so quite possibly that helped. I had a straight forward pregnancy and naively assumed that the second time around would be no different. I thought conceiving would be the problem, not staying pregnant.

DT2016 Sat 12-Nov-16 20:57:05

MrsY so sorry for your losses too flowers
