Morning everyone.
Thanks for the new thread. Currently in bed having a lie in mumsnetting while DH plays with DD.

Tigger83 Sun 05-Feb-17 08:27:14

Morning all just been bought a cuppa in bed before we get ready for a mammoth walk

buzzmoon Sun 05-Feb-17 08:29:55

Morning everyone! Also in bed trying to persuade myself to get up, but it's too cosy and I just can't be bothered at the mo!

So all my recent symptoms over the past few days Ovia seems to think they are conceived symptoms 😳 Watch this space...

TheGrumpySquirrel Sun 05-Feb-17 08:46:19

Morning all, I'm also having a lie in although I said I'd do some work I'm just knackered and a bit hungover

Buzz what cycle day are you on?

buzzmoon Sun 05-Feb-17 08:47:13

CD23 * grumpy*

Seven0fNine Sun 05-Feb-17 08:56:12

I too am in bed with tea!
Glad you like the list smile and pleased you noticed the date order Jupiter ha!

We just need to change Grumpy to cycle 1 next time we repost it xx

I'm starting to symptom spot like a crazy woman here...Trying not to get my hopes up.
If all else fails I will go for a run today!!!!

confusedat23 Sun 05-Feb-17 08:57:16

I've just made it out of bed!... unfurtunately dogs that needa feeding don't understand me trying to have a lay in loool... but i did my CBD OPK and got the static smiley today... told DH that he needs to get his bum here so we can sneak home to DTD...

Has anyone had abut of old blood streaked in the EWCM? (Sorry if tmi)

HeyJupiter Sun 05-Feb-17 09:40:10

Morning all and thank you confused for making the new thread! So glad you got your static face - hope DH is on his way home. I've not personally had blood in EWCM but it's apparently a sign of ovulation smile

Wiggley here is the link to the relaxation video. It's a bit cringey but actually quite soothing. My womb is full of energy and light this morning grin

So 1DPO today.. didn't DTD last night as DH shattered and no EWCM at all now so the window is over. Fingers crossed we managed to get in enough beforehand. The TWW begins eeek..

buzz exciting! When is your AF/BFP due?

HbH04 Sun 05-Feb-17 09:48:43

Morning girls!

Also have a mumsnet lie in! No action for me yesterday so LOTS to catch up on!

Mainly huge congrats dancing SO exciting! Definitely stay and keep us updated on what we've got to come! Was this your first cycle?

seven thanks for adding me to the list.... Few more stats:

Age 33
TTC #1
CD 15 (seems such a shame to be wasting fertile week!)
-Officially starting early March if all is negative at Zika test 22/2

Have yet to weigh in post holiday.... Help! Am heading to the gym in a bit so will get on the scales then confused

jupiter you certainly sound like you've done everything you can this month!! Conception meditation is next level!!

DancingUnicorn Sun 05-Feb-17 10:09:18

Buzz exciting!! What symptoms? Ee, fingers crossed!

Good luck avoiding the symptom spotting seven. It's hard work!

Confused sorry about the opk positive timing. Fx he'll be on board anyway.

Hb thank you! Yes, my first cycle and all the odds were stacked against us. I was convinced AF was on her way! (Even actually used a towel one day! Sorry tmi) still in shock! Good luck with the weight in! Any gain from holiday absolutely does not count!

Mummyme87 Sun 05-Feb-17 10:18:26

confused my toddler is one of those who can't be on their own for more than 2mins 🙈 I'm not too worried yet as no EWCM yet .
This feels like the longest cycle ever.

MrsC2017 Sun 05-Feb-17 10:23:00

buzz will keep everything crossed for you!!! And seven you too, hopefully the symptoms really are symptoms!
jupiter hope the tww flies by and you get your BFP at the end of it!!
hb good luck at the gym and as unicorn says holiday calories don't count!! grin
confused good luck today!! I hope ye sneak one in! wink
tigger enjoy the walk!! Hopefully it's a nice day where you are sun is shining here for now!
grumpy enjoy the lie in and embrace Sunday rest day!
AF in full swing, have the worst cramps of course, going to meet some friends for brunch as my AF arriving treat! No other Sunday plans, two weeks today till my trip away so going to focus on that! smile

HeyJupiter Sun 05-Feb-17 10:48:46

Hb Hmm, conception meditation is bonkers but enjoyed it this morning and feel quite chilled out. DH has gone out to find croissants and orange juice so all is well in the Jupiter household this morning.

MrsC rubbish AF cramps! So glad you're off to do something nice though. Need to keep the treats coming.

By the way are any of you taking Vitamin C supplements? I'm only on folic acid and vitamin D but read that I should be taking C as well (although hoping I'm getting it from my diet anyway)?

Wiggleyfingers Sun 05-Feb-17 10:56:02

Morning everyone!
I've had a lovely relaxing morning. DP was out until 3am last night for a 'wet the baby's head' beer up with friends. He very rarely goes out drinking anymore so he is really suffering today! I'm trying not to laugh at him.
MrsC sorry your cramps have got you! Hopefully lunch out will make you feel a bit better.
Hb did you not know that there isn't any calories in food outside of your home country?! They just don't exist, no one knows why yet.

Wiggleyfingers Sun 05-Feb-17 10:59:28

Jupiter I haven't started my conception vitamins yet, that's next AF treat! But the ones that I've bought do contain Vitamin C. I also read the other day that Omega 3 is really good for cm production and to take it in your proliferation stage. So much advice I don't know where to start! Probably all just marketing to make money out of us vulnerable ttc-ers.

buzzmoon Sun 05-Feb-17 11:01:53

Hehe wiggly I like to do things like Hoover, play loud music and cook something with a really obnoxious smell at times like these! smile

Symptoms include, elevated BBT, pain in lower right side, constipation, dizziness. So could just be coincidence and I literally thought nothing of it until bloody Ovia started putting thoughts in my mind! I'd absolutely love it to be, but am also panicking that if it did happen this month I'd have to get a new wedding dress!!! 😳

Hope everyone has wonderful relaxing Sundays!

buzzmoon Sun 05-Feb-17 11:04:40

jupiter just checked mine and they have 75% vitamins C too so that plus my daily satsumas should hopefully be enough!

Wiggleyfingers Sun 05-Feb-17 11:19:03

Ahh exciting Buzz! What kind of style dress do you have? You might just be able to get away with it...would you be 4-5 months? I guess it's different for every person but some people don't show until that time anyway. Fingers crossed for you! This time next week you will know either way!

orangefolly Sun 05-Feb-17 11:20:17

Morning everyone!

Thanks for starting the new thread confused grin

Thanks seven for all the stats summary! I should properly fill in the gaps:

Age 35
Cycle 1, AF (or BFP) due 16 Feb

My attempt to cut down on coffee has gone well - down to one cup a day and feeling less sleepy without it now! Diet going slowly, although have managed to up my exercise which must be good overall for my health.

Glad to hear so many of you have been enjoying lie ins this morning. Me too - stayed in bed with a book smile

HopefullyDothButterNoParsnips Sun 05-Feb-17 11:23:30

Well hello there ladies *looks round at shiny new thread*. Hope you're all well. Thanks for sorting the new one out confused! I am currently snaking round mountains in Italy en route to our ski resort. See view attached. Very jealous of all your lie ins. We were up at the ungodly hour of 4am to get to airport! Def having an early night tonight!

buzzmoon Sun 05-Feb-17 11:27:33

It's like a tea length style, so goes in at the waist and then goes out over my stomach so might be able to get away with it but was deffo not the plan! Stupid drunk dtd during fertile window!! (Secretely loving the idea)
When is yours wiggly August? Was your bridesmaid dress shopping successful?

buzzmoon Sun 05-Feb-17 11:28:21

Wow parsnips! Don't be jealous of our lie ins, that's beautiful! Very jealous of you right now!!

HbH04 Sun 05-Feb-17 11:58:50

Stunning view parsnips enjoy putting your new ski skills into practice on the real slopes!

buzz you're in a win win situation.... You either get a baby or you don't have to buy a new wedding dress, both good!

Oh do we need vit c too jupiter ? I'm already taking pregnacare conception, vit d, omega 3 (I'm veggie) & echinacea! I'll be rattling!

Gym wasn't as bad as anticipated, we went a few times on hol to keep things ticking over.... Also NO WEIGHT GAINED! Don't know how that happened! I don't totally trust weight tho and have probably put on inches!

In other news, I can totally tell its FW... So horny😂 DH is on nights so I'm gonna jump him this afternoon!!

buzzmoon Sun 05-Feb-17 12:05:51

hb that is a lovely way of thinking about it!
Well done on no weight gain! That's very impressive!

And extra exercise from dtd during your FW too! grin
