Another month, another period. I was due af yesterday but had no sign but today I've had brown tinged cm so she'll be here tomorrow.

Anyone else out for March already? Feel free to join in my misery lol

Thingymaboob Tue 07-Mar-17 17:15:59

Hello both! I'm very sad to be joining the April bus after AF arrived 2 days early. She is here in a big way this month whoa!
I am using an app to guide ovulation. I'm not using OPKs as they are stressful and I've never had a positive, even the month I got pregnant. Had a MC in October 16.
My stat:
Age: 31
TTC: #1
Cycle 3 (after MC)
CD 1
How do people feel about Christmas babies?

Hey! I'll join this April bus with you - if that's okay with you that is smile ! I was a week late last month but AF showed up yesterday/today.

Cycle#6 (I think!)

RoseGoldHippie Tue 07-Mar-17 17:18:44

Hi thingy I'm not bothered about a Christmas baby, I pretty much am and never minded it smile

Hello all you lovely ladies.
I am BMI 30
(doing slimming world so currently losing weight). I'm taking 5mg folic acid and also a small dose of vitamin D. What vitamins etc are you all taking?

Flixy102 Tue 07-Mar-17 18:41:02

I'm going to hop on here even though I'm not very hopeful!

Had Mirena coil removed 2 weeks ago after about 18 months-loved it but want to ttc number 2. Previous history of pretty bad PCOS so I don't reckon I'll ovulate any time soon but here's hoping!

Cycle day:who knows!
AF due:whenever she feels like it!

Happyasupsydaisy Tue 07-Mar-17 19:18:33

Oooh i forgot my stats! .. Age 32 .. Ttc #2 .. cycle 2 .... Those damn ovulation sticks turn me into a neurotic banshee!.... Im taking pregnacare conception but only because it was on offer.. will switch to the boots ones next month grin

boatrace30 Tue 07-Mar-17 19:40:58

Can I join please?
TTC no.2
Off contraception for a year but AF only returned in august (after breastfeeding DD)
Cycle 6 but very irregular length cycles due to PCOS and I'm driving myself crazy this time.

For example this month AF lasted a day and a half so I can't quite shake off the feeling that I could still be pregnant (even though tests would confirm I'm not!)

boatrace30 Tue 07-Mar-17 19:41:27

Oh and totally happy to have a Christmas baby. Happy to have any kind of baby now tbh!!

Flixy102 Tue 07-Mar-17 19:47:45

I know what you mean about the ov tests!

I had ovulation (or so I thought) pains last week, did a test in the evening which was about half way to positive, did another in the morning which was arctic white! So not sure if I missed the actual surge, or whether my body's just messing with me!

Have only dtd once since having my coil out too as I had a stinkin cold then gave it to DH. Pah! Need to step up the game lol.

boatrace30 Tue 07-Mar-17 19:54:12

I'm starting opks this month. I had pledged to be chilled out and "let things happen". That's not working. So I have temp charted since December and am starting opks this months not sure how accurate any of it is with pcos

Happyasupsydaisy Tue 07-Mar-17 19:57:43

I had intense ovulation pains last night. I tested and was negative (cheap sticks!) And today had a faint positive and tonight nothing!.... --_They are the work of the devil these sticks im sure! .

allthecheese Tue 07-Mar-17 20:25:14

I have just turned on 'Whitney - Fat Girl Dancing' (an insight into my awesome taste in TV) and she is preggo!

How is everyone pregnant?!

Re. Christmas baby. 6 months ago I would have been all 'I don't want a Christmas baby, and I don't want a baby born in the Summer'. But now I don't care. Just want a baby!!

boatrace30 Tue 07-Mar-17 20:29:12

Yep, we had a sort of break in December partly as I was really ill and partly as we wanted to avoid an august baby. Now I'm like "what were we thinking?!". Though to be fair I was probably too ill!

Bubblegum89 Tue 07-Mar-17 20:45:26

Evening all!

Lovely to see you all on here (although I'm sure we'd all rather not be here!)

How are we all doing? I'm having a "feeling sorry for myself" night tonight. I've eaten a whole bag of Haribo already. I wish af would just start properly, enough with the spotting!

My youngest sister was born on Christmas Day. She hates it haha I used to think I wouldn't want a December baby but I feel like at this point, I can't afford to be choosy lol

goldielocks29 Tue 07-Mar-17 20:55:15

Jumping on board!

AF not here yet, but DH and I were both ill last month so barring an immaculate conception...AF should be here this weekend.

TTC #1
Cycle 2

Not fussed about a Christmas baby, I'll be happy any time of the year! I'm a December gal myself and it's the big 30 this year 😬 so I'm hoping Sod's law will come into play and I'll end up having a baby for my birthday instead of champagne! 😂

hellotoyellow Tue 07-Mar-17 21:12:54

I'll jump on! AF has already happened. Might be in march twice due to short cycles though. Fingers crossed!

Bubblegum89 Tue 07-Mar-17 22:23:53

I'm a summer baby as is my partner (his birthday is the day after mine so I'm one day older than him lol) and my daughter is a summer baby too. I don't mind when I have another baby but I'm kind of wanting to get pregnant before May as that's when the lease is up on my two bed flat so I need to know if I should renew for another year or find something bigger! I've been told I have Asherman's Syndrome which causes infertility so my chances of conceiving aren't great so don't really want to rush in to moving to a bigger, more expensive place if I don't need to

Hi everyone, jumping on early from the March bus as AF arrived this morning. Allowing myself today to be upset and then I'm channeling lots of positive thoughts from tomorrow onwards!

TTC #1
Cycle #5
AF (or BFP!) due 4th April

I'm with you all on not minding a December baby - at this point I can't afford to be fussy!
