Thought I'd start the January bus, anyone else hoping for their BFP to welcome in the new year?
My stats are -
Age 23
TTC #2
CD 10
Cycle -- hard to put a number on, been trying a year but have had two losses, 5w and 12w so not sure where to count from.

Hi drrb
I'm sorry to hear about your MC sad

I am 26 and TTC #1 smile I came off the pill about 2 weeks ago now so it's looking like this month is out the window for me, as still no AF or ovulation! What day are you on in your cycle?

DrRBannerx Mon 12-Dec-16 10:03:19

Hey amz
I am on cd 10, fw should be here in two days.
Have you been tracking with ov tests?

florafoxtrot Mon 12-Dec-16 10:23:10

Hey. I'll jump on too!
Age: 30 (hubby is 32)
TTC #1
CD: 5
Cycle: 6

Been trying since July and so far not a peep. My cycles are really regular and no hint that anything might be wrong so hoping that its just taking a while and that we get there at some point in the NY. I fluctuate wildly between being positive and crying that it'll never happen and that we are doomed...

florafoxtrot Mon 12-Dec-16 10:24:27

Oh - I'm also a temp-er - not tried OPKs thus far and don't think I'll bother - temps have seemed to indicate that I do ovulate and because cycles are fairly regular it doesn't seem necessary to do both!

Amz26 Mon 12-Dec-16 10:40:56

Yes I've been really impatient and have been testing most days apart from the first few! It's really strange because last time I came off my contraceptive in 2014 TTC #1 I got a positive OPK a few days later and that's why I am worried this time! So should you be ovulating soon? Are you using them?

we only tried for a few months tho.. Had to stop as my partner was in hospital for 3months after a life changing bike accident sad We have decided its the right time to try again as he's not going to recover anymore than he has already! (2 years waiting to TTC is long enough)

Amz26 Mon 12-Dec-16 10:45:06

Welcome flora
I haven't tried it, do you think that's better then? I need to do some reaserch on it as I'm not really sure how it works and the best time to do it X

florafoxtrot Mon 12-Dec-16 11:13:19

I think that OPKs are maybe better if you have irregular cycles as they give you a good idea of when to DTD however they can occasionally record a false gear up whereby the hormones surge but you don't then ovulate until later and then you miss the window. With temping its more of a certainty that you actually have ovulated as otherwise your temperature won't increase but obviously by the time its gone up its too late to know to get on it if you know what I mean ;) Think everyone is totally different and temping is a bit more cumbersome as you've got to take your temp at same time every day, as soon as you wake up etc. and then know how to read your chart (although you get Apps that do it for you!) so it can be pretty fiddly but I'm getting on OK with it.

Amz26 Mon 12-Dec-16 11:36:44

I might have to give it a go! It's still really early for me after coming off my pill so I prob just need to wait to get my body back in a good cycle before I will be able to get a good idea of the day I ovulate! We DTD every other day anyway if not more sometimes so we might be lucky and just get a BFP without a possitive OPK X

DrRBannerx Mon 12-Dec-16 13:13:07

Hey flora I use opks for that specific reason, my periods have always been irregular, but since last mc they are like clockwork, strange!
Anyone taking any supplements? I take folic acid and cod liver oil, looking into taking some more.
Sorry about your oh amz sounds like a terrible time, I hope he's doing better.
I also flip between being sad we don't have another to thinking it's okay it'll come when it comes!

Amz26 Mon 12-Dec-16 13:42:22

Yes that is strange DrRB! I'm sure we will all get our time when we're ready! It must be so horrible to go through what you did.

It was a horrible time but I'm grateful I still Have him, i just hope it didn't effect his fertility, he said he will probably go and get some tests done after six months of trying as I know it's on his mind too X

DrRBannerx Mon 12-Dec-16 14:43:25

Oh yes I didn't think of that, I do hope that's not the case x

Amz26 Mon 12-Dec-16 15:14:49

It was a bike accident and he was quite bruised in that area if you know what I mean 😁 The doctors never said anything about it at the time but I think it was the last of their worries to be honest! I'm sure if it's meant to be it will happen for us!
Just reread the message before your last one about the supplements, I am taking the same as you! Did you take anything else for your first pregnancy x

Dazedandconfusedtoomuchpeppa Mon 12-Dec-16 15:46:42

Hello everyone.

I am tentatively joining. I thought we had missed this month but got unexpected positive today and DH due home tonight, so hopefully we have a small chance. Have had very long cycles from 35-44 days so think I'll need to head to GP.

Ttc #2
CD 26
Cycle 3 but ttc since August ( long cycles)

I've been taking Angus Cactus, Evening Primrose capsules, and Folic Acid. No change in cycle length so not sure AC helps confused.

Good luck to you all grin

Dazedandconfusedtoomuchpeppa Mon 12-Dec-16 15:49:38

Positive OPK not preg test btw! Sorry that wasn't very clear.

Amz26 Mon 12-Dec-16 15:54:41

Welcome Daz,

That's good news you got a positive OPK today! Hope mine comes soon now 😄
Wow you have had some long cycles, is that from coming off birth control?
How long did it take TTC with your #1 X

OvariesForgotHerPassword Mon 12-Dec-16 16:07:41

Hope I can jump in smile My stats -

Age: 22
TTC #2
Cycle 2 (cycle 1 of properly trying).
BFP would be due Jan 2nd

Due to ovulate on my wedding night so a honeymoon baby would be nice!

Dazedandconfusedtoomuchpeppa Mon 12-Dec-16 16:14:30

I haven't taken the pill since May so I'm not sure why my cycles are so strange. They seem to be getting longer with last cycle the longest yet. DH works away so it is hard to DTD at the right time.

No 1 was a happy accident and I was on the pill. fblush

Fingers crossed you ovulate soon. Waiting so long to ttc & the accident must have been so hard!

Let's hope this is a lucky thread fsmile

Dazedandconfusedtoomuchpeppa Mon 12-Dec-16 16:16:46

Hello ovaries, a honeymoon baby would be lovely.

Amz26 Mon 12-Dec-16 17:09:50

Welcome ovaries A honeymoon baby would be such a lovely start to your marriage!

Well to be honest I knew it wasn't the right time so I sort of just put it to the back of my mind! But as soon as we started trying again I'm back to this crazy baby making woman 🙈 A few of my friends have fallen pregnant whilst on the pill, which one was you on Daz? Let's hope it is the lucky thread X

Paperdove87 Mon 12-Dec-16 19:25:23

HI everyone!
My stats:
Age 29
Ttc #1
Cycle 1
Cd 14

I'm not 100% sure when AF due- I'm fairly irregular. Probably around the 2nd.

I've been preggers once before in 2014 but had a mc at 17 wks. Then life got in the way for a while. Excited to be try again and suitably obsessed!

Wishing everyone new year baby dust!

Amz26 Mon 12-Dec-16 19:40:31

Hey paper welcome to this thread!
Sorry to hear about your MC in 2014, I can't even begin to think how horrible it must of been for you.
I'm Defo obsessed so we can all drive eachother mad 😂 Better then driving our OH crazy X

DrRBannerx Mon 12-Dec-16 19:51:21

Hey everyone welcome to the thread! amz I really am hoping it hasn't damaged anything, Fx!
No, DD was a surprise, I was very unhealthy and didn't find out for a while as my periods were irregular.
Next two pregnancies I was taking folic acid and putting my legs up after DTD, just DTD once a day on FW.
Currently laying here with the flu, I look like an absolute goddess ball of snot, but oh is still raring to try, bless him. He's as excited as me.

Paperdove87 Mon 12-Dec-16 20:03:44

Amz I already am driving my OH a bit mad I think. He asked me out of curiosity how I knew I was in my FW yesterday. don't think he was expecting the detailed CM explanation! grin

DrRB hope you feel better soon!

user1471496670 Mon 12-Dec-16 21:58:39
