Hi Everyone!

Sooo stats:

I'm 28 yo
Have DS who is 2.7
Currently have a 26 day cycle (was much shorter but balanced out)
Casually TTC for about a year
Seriously TTC with proper tools confused ie charting for 2 cycles

This month OPK says I ov'd CD13/14 so due AF around 10/12. I have always been in tune with my body/cycle but kind of expected it to just happen (naively) as it did with DS. Turns out it isn't that simple! sad

Anyone want to start their tww with me or just share their stories?!

Come aboard!

Hey I'm ttc number 2. I'm 24 DD is almost five now! Been trying seriously for almost a year with two losses, 5weeks and 3 months. Fx for bfp this cycle and a sticky one!! Af due Saturday x

ringroads Mon 28-Nov-16 16:43:48

Hey im TTC 2 , cycle 5 following mc in july CD 4 so would be due to test xmas day! Im so negative about the whole TTC following the mc so tired of the disappointment each month, hope this is all our month x x

Kskifred Mon 28-Nov-16 16:50:57

DrRBanner and ringroads - I'm really to hear about your losses. x

Yes fingers crossed for sticky eggs and BFPs for Christmas!

Kskifred Mon 28-Nov-16 16:55:17

That was meant to say really sorry to hear. Typo apologies

MrsY87 Mon 28-Nov-16 17:54:33

Hey! I'm 29 and ttc #2 since march, have had a mc in Aug and another in oct, both at 6 weeks so really hoping that it is 3rd time lucky for a sticky one! DD is 2.1.

Currently 6dpo so will most probably test towards the end of the week. When will you be testing Dr?

Similar to you kskfred in that expected #2 to be as straightforward as DD...turns out I was very wrong! The charting and opks is all new to me this time. Is everyone else charting and using opks?

ringroads Mon 28-Nov-16 18:29:25

MrsY I dont chart , i had used the opks but i wont bother this month as its just stressing me out. Im trying to relax as much as possible this month but im constantly thinking about it! Ahhhh , how about you?do you use an app?

Kskifred Mon 28-Nov-16 19:02:35

Yes charting, i use Ovia app, I bought a thermometer for bbt but haven't quite mastered doing it properly yet. Using opks too

MrsY87 Mon 28-Nov-16 19:12:52

I've been using Fertility friend it's quite basic but seems to be good for temping. Only started after my first mc as my cycles seemed to have changed, it's quite interesting but not sure I've mastered it either!

It's so hard to put it to relax and the back of your mind isn't it? Hopefully being busy in the run up to Christmas will help with that!

ringroads Mon 28-Nov-16 19:28:58

Kski, when will you test? Have you just entered your TWW?

Obsidian Mon 28-Nov-16 19:45:17

Hey - can I join? Tentatively TTC #2 after miscarriages in August (5 weeks) and October (7 weeks), so also very much hoping to be 3rd time lucky. Bit older than you lot I think - 35 - also have DD aged 5. Like kskfred and MrsY87 had a relatively straightforward time of it first time round, so a bit unprepared for all the stress and sadness TTC #2 has caused so far.

I think I'm on CD17, but don't chart / temp / use OPKs - just standard pregnancy tests stress me out enough (I've had to stop buying internet cheapies as I use them far too early and get a bit obsessed - luckily I'm so tight that I refuse to use FRER or similar until after period is late!).

AF also due 10th/11th Dec, so just starting 2WW. Fingers crossed for lots of sticky BFPs! grin

DrRBannerx Mon 28-Nov-16 20:04:38

mrsy I'm sorry about your losses.
If I tell the truth I'll be testing from tomorrow FMU until Saturday. I'm an avid poas'er and I'll be 11dpo. I do have absolutely no symptoms though, aside being sick alot but I have a food allergy so being unwell isn't uncommon for me.
obs sorry about your loss x
I track on ovia and flo and use opks, I've done everything right this cycle x

Kskifred Mon 28-Nov-16 20:09:54

Yes just entering the tww - opk went from peak to nothing between yesterday and today, and had a temp dip yesterday so i'm going with ov yesterday morning sometime?
I am terrible at symptom spotting so hoping i don't psych myself up this time, really hard not to though. Poas also becomes so addictive!

Kskifred Mon 28-Nov-16 20:11:29

Dr looks like you're closest to testing at the mo - what are your thoughts on this month?

DrRBannerx Mon 28-Nov-16 20:40:00

kskifred I don't feel optimistic this cycle, I think I've stressed too much from the last mc and been not very well, and you know that some time gets In the way and I'm still not sure what my cycles are doing as this is only my second and my period lasted three days longer than normal. I have had dtd every day though and three times a day I'm FW. Taken my folic acid and omega oil every day so there's really nothing more I could have done, atleast I know that! No symptoms though, I try my hardest not to symptom spot because it confuses me when I get AF and I am so convinced! Sorry for the essay x

DrRBannerx Mon 28-Nov-16 20:40:58

*in FW. My phone loves to auto correct!

ringroads Mon 28-Nov-16 21:00:16

Wow 3 times a day thats amazing! After all that I hope you get your BFP!

DrRBannerx Mon 28-Nov-16 21:05:33

Thank you! Not thinking it's going to happen as my boobs literally don't have the slighest bit of ache, and that's so irritating as it's only 3-4 days until af so you'd think they'd be here by then x

Writerwannabe83 Mon 28-Nov-16 21:37:23

I am TTC #2

I'm 33 and have a DS who is 2yr 7m

This is my 9th cycle of trying. I had a BFP on cycle 1 but miscarried and nothing since.

Last month I decided to stop BF'ing DS in case that was why I was struggling to get pregnant so this month is my first cycle post breast feeding.

I had my positive OPK last night and they've been positive all day today too.

My period is due 11/12th of December.

Good luck everyone!!!

lilyborderterrier Mon 28-Nov-16 21:38:57

Hi I have a nearly 4 year old ( born Feb 2013) been trying since September for #2, nothing yet.
My body convinced me I was positive last month but wasn't, and this month I started my period 5 days early ( not due until Wednesday) started brown spotting then a bit heavier but then stopped so I'm
Wondering if it's implantation bleeding but not feeling pregnant no other symptoms. I've got some cheap testing strips to test but not doing till Wednesday. Really hoping I am though :/

MrsY87 Mon 28-Nov-16 21:40:16

That is a good effort dr! Where did you find the time?!

Hi Obsidian sorry for your losses, I've felt quite unprepared for the stress and sadness too. Fingers crossed this is the month for us all!

cooperbug Mon 28-Nov-16 21:42:17

Can I join please

Ttc no 2
Cycle day ?
Ttc for 6 months
Already have DS nearly 2

Conceived DS first month of trying so this is getting a bit stressful especially because I had a miscarriage at 5 weeks last month.

I've just started to do opks about a week ago to get an idea what my cycle is doing , got positive on Thursday and still positive five days later. Pregnancy tests negative though. Anyone any idea what is going on and for how long should we keep dtd?

cooperbug Mon 28-Nov-16 21:45:05

Writer Ive just noticed your on this thread too and replied to my earlier post.

Sorry to hear you had a loss too

ringroads Mon 28-Nov-16 21:54:26

Welcome writter and cooper Sorry to hear of your losses. COoper are you sure they are all positive,? Could you post a pic maybe? Unfortunately I dont have an answer for you but i guess your body is trying to gear up to do something x

cooperbug Mon 28-Nov-16 22:02:59

Sorry I haven't taken any photos of them but yes they are all as dark as the control line since I tested on Thursday morning. I don't think I've ovulated yet as not had my usual ovulation pain and still have some Ewcm but not a lot of it.

Could it be possible that I won't ovulate this month if the ovary is having trouble releasing the egg or something? I'll be gutted if not!
