Cycle 10 sad

Aww kirsty don't feel uncomfortable, you are always more than welcome. It's nice to hear from 'the others side' haha smile how wonderful with baby kicking and waving. Thanks for sharing the journey and wishing you all the very best.

Thanks flora and basset I hope so. Thanks for new thread too.

flora we all need to be moaning Minnie's every now and again to keep up safe. I saw this pic on my fat club group today but thought how apt it was to me right now. Everything will happen at the right time for us and our ruler. Keep your chin up smileand very happy birthday cake

Cycle 9 (bah)

Thanks for the new thread!

Just had very welcome 🍷 with a friend. DH will be annoyed, but honestly, I just wanted to have a bit of fun after a few weeks of making excuses with all my friends. It was one medium wine, a small wine, and a gin and slim - is that excessive? I don't think so at CD2.

Eva30 Fri 10-Feb-17 20:38:35

Oops I forgot to upload the pic I was talking about.

Ha pjs we have it tough enough as it is, don't know how I'd get through TTC without the odd drink! Don't worry about it.

I finished the greys anatomy box sets and now I've moved on to Victoria on catch up, it's been good so far

Cycle 8 (😡)
Bought opks for this month. Also going to make a gp appt not to get tests but to moan and make contact.

Although if they want to test I won't say no

Blissfulignorance Fri 10-Feb-17 20:59:02

Also if Kirsty is still here, good luck sweetheart so pleased everything is going well and you're excited. We will miss you!

Hello again!

Cycle 2

So sorry to hear you feeling so low flora 😞 hope you have had a wonderful birthday though and have a lovely weekend planned flowersflowers

Piehunter Sat 11-Feb-17 06:48:18

Eva I love Greys anatomy. Currently need to catch up with the latest Suits, I might do that today as a treat after I've done some painting (not the arty type!)

flora hope you were able to enjoy your birthday!

basset thanks for the new thread

pj's that doesn't sound excessive at all to me, everything in moderation and all that! It's my understanding that it's more important for sperm health than female fertility health to be alcohol free anyway? Could be wrong..

Cycle 8
Cd 17.

Not planning on opks this month although did end up doing a few last month. Had some ewcm yesterday and dtd Thurs, will again tonight and then Monday too and that should be us covered. I'm definitely very well distracted with trying to get new house liveable before we move in 3 weeks! Currently got a gutted kitchen, knocked out fireplace and a downstairs loo that needs replacing, as well as carpet and much painting!

TTC #1
Cycle 9 😡
CD 12

Got OPK's for this month

Eva30 Sat 11-Feb-17 08:10:26

pie I have a massive Greys binge recently and now I'm up to dategrin I have painting to do this weekend too, skirting boards. Your house sounds like my project house, moved in in May and finally getting to the finish line. Exciting though - congrats!

I did an IC test this morning - negative (surprise surprise) and my temp dropped so AF is on her way. Humph. One more cycle to go before my GP will finally refer me for tests...

Pyjamas81 Sat 11-Feb-17 08:26:00

Sorry about the BFN Eva 🙁 You're not out until AF arrives, but I do understand why you're preparing yourself.

Thanks for the support guys - I really don't think what I did last night was excessive, yet the way DH carried on when I got in would make you think I need to be shipped off to rehab. We had a huge fight last night, shouting and everything, which we never do. Was really looking forward to a nice weekend with him and now he's downstairs in a huff.

Piehunter Sat 11-Feb-17 08:33:10

pj's I wonder if the pressure of ttc is getting to him more than he lets on? It sounds like an over-reaction to something minor that comes with stress.. Even though he's (if I remember correctly!) seemed quite laid back externally?

Eva bloody skirting boards... envy they are evil. Fx this month is the month, if not I imagine it'll feel good to get the ball rolling with tests started.

Eva30 Sat 11-Feb-17 08:34:58

Oh no pjs not an ideal start to the weekend sad maybe now he's slept on it he'll realise he was being ridiculous and apologise?? You can't go through TTC living like a nun, now that would drive you to rehab!

Pyjamas81 Sat 11-Feb-17 09:50:27

I think you're right - he's usually extremely laid back but I think it's getting to him now. Just came downstairs to find him reading fertility books - which is sweet, but he still thinks I should completely abstain. We're just going to have to agree to disagree - I don't drink anymore during FW and TWW so if I want a glass or two of 🍷 when AF arrives, I'm doing it. You're right Eva - I definitely can't live like a nun!

Eva30 Sat 11-Feb-17 10:06:49

Aw that is sweet, I'd never catch my oh reading fertility books haha!
Like you say the best time to let your hair down (and when a wine is most deserved) is when AF arrives.

Eva30 Sat 11-Feb-17 10:09:49

Missed your post pie - I know, I have 3 rooms to do as well, not fun weekend jobs! My oh is on overtime today though so keeps me busy. Yes I am desperate to start tests as I just feel something is 'wrong' and I'd either like confirmation and help from Dr or to put my mind at rest.

Kaydee2017 Sat 11-Feb-17 10:24:15

Hi ladies - found you all! Thanks for the new thread basset! grin

Cycle 3

I think you're completely in the right pyjamas, if you're abstaining the other 3 weeks of the month, a glass or 2 when AF arrives is definitely allowed - hope you make up & can still enjoy your weekend together!

And sorry for BFN Eva! Fx AF stays away flowers

Pyjamas81 Sat 11-Feb-17 12:44:24

That's what I think kaydee and Eva! He's still not backing down and insists I should give it up entirely - now saying things like 'I'm concerned about your drinking'. All this stupid drama over three drinks! He reads one sodding chapter and thinks he's a fucking fertility guru.

I've just been to the gym so feel a bit better - thankfully he's out! Ugh - so much for our nice weekend together - we were supposed to go out for a fuck it Valentine's Day dinner tonight, I don't even want to look at him right now 😡

How are you doing Eva? Negative tests can put such a downer on the day, but I hope you're doing ok.

yellowfrontdoor Sat 11-Feb-17 13:35:08

Ooh, shiny new thread.

CD 30
13/14 dpo.

Sitting on my hands to stop myself from POAS, if AF doesn't arrive by next weekend, I'll test then. I've cut down on caffeine (not a drinker so that's ok) just in case.
OPK's made such a difference this month, we were trying a week too late previously because of the app I was using. We also used conceive plus this month for the first time too.

flowers to everyone caught by the witch.
I'll be planning my 'fuck it day' if she gets me too.

Kaydee2017 Sat 11-Feb-17 14:03:17

Know how you feel pyjamas, when you've been looking forward to a nic weekend & something daft derails it! Hope he is home soon to apologise!!

Fx AF doesn't get you yellow & well done on holding out on the POAS!!

Pyjamas81 Sat 11-Feb-17 14:28:32

He's now home and sulking upstairs and I'm catching up on eastenders - what a romantic valentines celebration confused I've attached the pages he's had a freak out about - nothing I say will convince him that a couple of drinks when AF arrives won't make any difference!

🤞 yellow!!

yellowfrontdoor Sat 11-Feb-17 14:50:14

Pjs obviously not an expert here, but does he enjoy a drink too? I'm guessing he's suggesting you both abstain, otherwise it's not fair at all.

Eva30 Sat 11-Feb-17 14:50:48

pjs "I'm concerned about your drinking" 😂😂 he's blown it way out of proportion! The paragraph says less than 5 units is ok and you only had a few!! I hope he comes around quickly and you can salvage your weekend together.

Not too bad thanks, I already programme myself every month to think it's not happened so now I feel like it's just a process thing to get to 12 months TTC to see what's going on. Just need AF to hurry up now.

yellow sounds promising! Hats off to you because I'm addicted to poas.
Thanks kaydee

yellowfrontdoor Sat 11-Feb-17 15:26:25

Eva I have internet cheapies, a FR & a CB digital in my drawer.

Just thinking about them makes me want to pee! 😂

I must hold out!!!!
