Hi ladies, I'm due to test on the 8/9th March and 2puld love a few ladies to share the journey with. Some of the groups are super big and it would be lovely to start a smaller group to be TTC buddies? I'm 30, ttc no 2, cycle 1 smile

Hi, I'm 31 TTC #2 and due to test on the 7th I think. Cycle 1 of tentatively trying!

Oldschool41 Sat 04-Mar-17 20:10:08

Hi there, I'm new to all this and I'm testing after the 14th of march if my AF hasn't arrived so a little later than you two 😀

Sazwest Sat 04-Mar-17 20:10:45

@Mamabooksbabynumber2 I'm due to test 9-10th (my AF is due 11th) xxx

WelshMammy123 Sat 04-Mar-17 20:21:09


I'll join you if that's ok? Due to test on 14th march but who am I kidding??? Will definitely cave before then. I'm currently only 2dpo.

TTC number 2. Have a dd - took us years to conceive her. Sadly had a MMC and a tfmr last year. Am now on cycle 4 after the tfmr and trying not to get too stressed out by it all x

saz and oldschool are you trying for your first? I find this whole ttc business very consuming! I keep thinking about how much I want to be pregnant rather than doing my uni work shock. I'm going to try and not test early. We dtd on thr last two days of the Fw so I'm not massively convinced I'm pregnant.

Mamabooksbabynumber2 Sat 04-Mar-17 20:59:49

Sorry to hear you've had some difficulty welsh. How old is your first? My first is 7 this month so a big age gap. midget we are both on cycle 1 smile good luck to everyone and super pleased we have our shiny new buddy thread stargrin

@Mamabooksbabynumber2 I already have 3 (there 13,10,5) I fell with my 2nd the same day I had my coil removed ( I had this copper coil removed 21st but only had 22 day cycle so I ovulated as soon as my AF finished so I'm hoping I have fallen straight away xxx

Can I scootch on in here too?

I'm 26, TTC #1, cycle 1 of officially trying. Currently on CD33 and due to test tomorrow - however, I broke and tested early today - BFN. AF isn't due for another 3 days, but I don't think I've been lucky first time round.

WelshMammy123 Sat 04-Mar-17 22:03:28

Hi Mama,

DD is just over 2. It took us over 3 years and a failed ivf before we conceived her naturally so I lack faith in my body's ability to do the whole getting pregnant thing! The two pregnancies last year were a shock and I'm hoping that, despite their extremely sad end, they are a sign that whatever stopped us getting pregnant before has now been fixed somehow x

Oldschool41 Sat 04-Mar-17 22:33:47

Hi there, I have 3 children who are all grown up and left home

bumphopes Sat 04-Mar-17 23:19:26

Hello, mind if I join here too?

I've a few failed pregnancies (chems and early MCs) but still feeling hopeful with TTC #1.

WelshMam I'm 2DPO today too and will test on Tuesday 14th March at 12 DPO, that's when I could see my positives before....(I think I've wasted a lot of tests, testing too soon...).

Anybody feeling any pregnancy signs yet?

AmandaP86x Sun 05-Mar-17 00:58:11

Hi girls

Had MMC in October then d&c been trying to conceive since. On CD25 and have 8 days until I can test 😒 No symptoms really apart from this od low cramp dull ache feeling prob AF going to arrive 🙄

AGnu Sun 05-Mar-17 01:26:58

I'm going to park myself in here too. Not exactly TTC but we did DTD on CD14 after I got my dates a bit muddled & DH didn't question it until afterwards!

We've got 2 DC already, 5 & 3yo, & had been talking about a DC3 last year. I convinced DH to try because I was having a breakdown at the thought of not having the child that I felt was meant to be in our family & we tried for 2 months, both times conceiving but ending at 4-5 weeks.

Every pregnancy I've had symptoms from CD21, which would be today, & I've been feeling queasy & dizzy on & off all day. I'm trying to tell myself it's psychosomatic or food poisoning or something but it's a pretty distinctive feeling! Plus, my boobs felt swollen & sore this morning.

Not entirely sure how I feel. Mostly I'm in denial & trying to ignore it. I'd still love another child but I don't know how I'll get through another loss, especially given that DH isn't even pretending to be interested this time. He's a great dad but only ever pictured 2 DC. He'd love any more that came along but would need time to get over his usual change=terrifying reaction! He's got past it before conceiving with the others but this time he's barely responding when I talk about it so I'm feeling a bit alone.

I'll stop waffling now! blush Fx we all get good news soon!

Can I join in as well? Im ttc #1 since June 2016 however I wasn't trying properly until January this year. Unfortunately I had an early MC in January. Awaiting my first period and then will be ttc this month.

It'd be great to be part of a group who will be ttc at the same time. Good luck to you all.

bumphopes Tue 07-Mar-17 07:56:55

Hi Beardy1
So sorry about the early miscarriage in January. I also had an early miscarriage over new year and another in February. This will be our 3rd month in a row if I get a BFP.

bumphopes Tue 07-Mar-17 07:58:28

Hi All

How many DPO are you all and how are you feeling? Anybody testing this week?

Oldschool41 Tue 07-Mar-17 08:04:52

I am just 7 dpo feeling rather gassy today. Testing on the 14th if AF hasn't arrived

AmandaP86x Tue 07-Mar-17 08:05:32

Hi I am due AF in 6 days

Just tested and got BFN hopefully maybe just tested too soon 😭

bumphopes Tue 07-Mar-17 08:37:21

Amanda how many DPO are you? Sounds too soon

Oldschool41 Tue 07-Mar-17 08:42:03

I wouldn't test until after your AF is due, I know it's hard not too

AmandaP86x Tue 07-Mar-17 08:59:07

How do I work that out lol! My app says 6 days until preg test 😭

AGnu Tue 07-Mar-17 08:59:31

I'm 10dpo & won't be testing until after the weekend. AF due on Saturday but I'm giving it a couple of days to make sure. The last 2 pregnancies I've tested either before or on the day AF was due. I can't stand seeing the BFP only for AF to arrive within 24 hours!

I've been feeling queasy & tired the last few days. I'm really hungry now but I'm likely to feel sick if I eat anything. I've got to be careful though, with DS2 I nearly ended up in hospital because the nausea was so bad I couldn't even drink!

AGnu Tue 07-Mar-17 09:02:23

Amanda assuming an average 28 day cycle, it's likely that you're about 8dpo.

bumphopes Tue 07-Mar-17 09:21:32

Amanda did you record fm your temp or do any ovulation sticks?
