Thread 26. TTC #1 - Calm as a hysterical cucumber

(997 Posts)

Calling all OPK-ers, Temp-ers, Clomid-ers, Femara-ers, IUI-ers, IVF-ers and anyone else on the TTC #1 Bus.

We've been going a while now so the novelty has somewhat worn off and we're slightly battle scarred and bruised in the cervix area. We don't get a lot of baby dust in these here parts, we just keep it legs spread and fingers crossed (LSFX). We love a baby bomb from a prior bus-mate but if we get told to 'just relax and enjoy it' ONE MORE TIME you will get a punch in the face!

Here's our Grad's Thread. May 2017 lead us all to upduffed heaven and the Grad's thread, amen.

We don't have rules as such but expect to be talked down from the ledge with kind but firm words if you get too hysterical. But most importantly, don't convince yourself that you're pregnant in the tww. That is paramount!

Hop on board, post your stats and prepare to be dazzled by the wealth of TTC knowledge we long-timeys have to share...

Testing if no AF on 11th March

Also going for a more relaxed cycle - no temping, no opks, dtd every other day instead of the tedious dtd-athons!

Like many, still searching for that elusive BFP. Had a HSG before last cycle, hoping that I'm one of those lucky people who gets it soon after. Otherwise, I'll be referred for IVF in April.

Not tracking anything this cycle so won't test until 22nd which would be my longest cycle length.
Having to normal TTW of swinging between absolutely convinced I'm pregnant to being depressed that I'm not.

Tried the works (lap and dye, clomid etc) but looks like the MFI issues are too much so have just started our first IVF cycle. Just waiting to start the injections (down reg) in a couple of weeks.
Kwick - I hope you're still lurking and have found us ok. Hope you are holding up.

Hi all

Thanks for the new thread Alexia

CD 27

Will test at the weekend if AF not here but I'm sure she's coming! Had mild cramping yesterday but that's gone today (had this a couple of months ago too). Temperature dropped at the weekend then went back up yesterday and has stayed up but I think that's more likely because I'm ill! DH trying to be knowledgeable just called this my 'gluteal phase' 😂

Fx for everyone this cycle

CD13 - positive OPK this morning
BFP due 27th Feb

I'm sorry I've been awol over the last week or two. I'm finding TTC harder than I ever imagined.

My thoughts are with you Kwick. I hope you're doing ok and looking after yourself.

I'm sorry too Harriet. I can't imagine how hard this is.

Good luck to the upcoming testers and hugs to anyone that needs one.

TTC started Oct 2015. Periods stopped may 2016. Conceived in July, MMC and ERPC in September 2016, periods restarted Nov 2016.

AF due 16th Feb, but already had a bfn, so just looking forward to the next cycle - cause that will be the one ! grin

I am an opker, and try to run to destress (completed week5 of c25k though currently waiting for foot to heal before running again).

Flashinthepan Tue 14-Feb-17 09:05:58

Lovely new thread Alexia.

I'm Flash, 28, CD 13, poss OV today, as I've got a sort of tugging pinching pain in my left side, Vday is a good day for some DTD methinks!

Had one BFP, ended in ectopic, that was nearly a year ago. So technically only Cycle 3.

No tracking this month, except CM as it's hard not to! Have ramped up the exercise, it makes me feel better, and it'll be good to be fit when I get my BFP!

Gaelach Tue 14-Feb-17 09:07:33

So grateful for this thread. Valentines love to all 💕

Flashinthepan Tue 14-Feb-17 09:57:23

Ooo Missy Tonks I'll be testing 26th! I am categorically not going to test until 26th! Must keep repeating that mantra.
