So yet again, af has got me. Brown spotting this morning after a cycle where I was actually genuinely convinced I'd done it this time. Oh well.

Only on month 5 of actively trying. I'm ttc no2. I'm awaiting a referral for a hospital appointment to investigate scarring in my uterus so every month that goes by without a pregnancy, the more I can't deny that there's obviously something wrong (I've conceived twice, both just after a missed pill so 5 months is long in comparison!)

Just thought I'd say hi and hope THIS might be our month and we have a chance at a baby in 2018 instead smile

I'll jump on too!
TTC #1
Cycle 10 sad

Onto Cycle 10 and not had a hint of anything so far - I've no indication anything is wrong either - regular cycles, ovulation confirmed by temping etc. so just need to keep going. Trying raspberry leaf tea (pre-ov) and preseed this month, alongside CB digital OPKs and temping.

Hi can I join.
Also was convinced we'd conceived this month after a faint positive but nope, AF arrived 4 days late. Also on the 5th month ttc#1.

Hi ladies, thanks for joining smile

Can I join?
TTC #1
Cycle 11 (I think)
CD Not a clue - does spotting count?

We weren't doing anything other than did lots, but I then tried Seven Seas trying for a baby pills, which have absolutely ruined my (generally regular) cycles. Abnormally late AF, spotting, all sorts.
Doctors appointment is booked for next week so hopefully that'll give more answers.
Fingers crossed for BFPs for you all soon!

TTC #2 (first with DH)
Cycle - difficult to determine at this stage.... we seem to always miss the perfect time?? But possibly 3!!
Currently in the tww but missed this month think I ovulated Friday passed? But dtd late Wednesday!

Anyways I'm just waiting on af to come so I can make some form of an attempt in may lol

juneybean Tue 04-Apr-17 21:03:47

The vitamin thing does worry me as my last two cycles have been 30 and 32 and I desperately need this month to be 28 as normal otherwise I've got no chance as we go on honeymoon on 1st May and I'm thinking we'll inseminate on 26th and 28th April...

MotherofUnicorns Tue 04-Apr-17 21:18:03

Hi all, Thanks for starting this bubblegum.
I am TTC3, cd30 but only 9dpo. Getting crampy and feeling generally like AF is very imminent. We couldn't have DTD any more this month, totally timed it perfectly so i am more than a little sad it hasn't happened.
DH is going to get his swimmers looked at in the next week or so which is something we can (hopefully) rule out. I am pretty sure i OV as i wee on about a thousand sticks a month.....
This is about cycle 8 after having my coil out and it taking a while for things to settle down.
fingers crossed this is our month everyone!
june sounds like you are on a strict timetable - can you inseminate on your honeymoon if necessary or would you have to wait for next month??

juneybean Tue 04-Apr-17 21:25:10

Ohh don't rule yourself out Mother my best friend had her usual cramps and then got her BFP!

We'd have to wait til next month, I'd probably ask the donor to help on 30th April and hope his swimmers last until ovulation decided to occur.

penguinsandotters Tue 04-Apr-17 21:52:19

Hi can I join please? Was also hopeful that we managed it last cycle but sadly AF got me today so CD1 today.

Hello everyone smile

Af in full swing now. My cervix is super low and when I checked it, there was the good old red blood that I'm fed up to the back teeth of seeing.

I've spoken to a specialist in my fertility issue and he's advised me to not continue ttc until I've completed treatment which wont be until the end of the year most likely so I'm giving up for now. I'm a bit sad but I'm fed up of the stress anyway so I'll have to just make sure I don't dtd in my fertile week for the foreseeable future.

I wish you all lots of luck, hope I don't see any of you still on here when I come back next year!

Hello! Please can I join ?

Ttc #5
Cycle 1 after sterilisation reversal (so a bit nervous!) AF due in about 10 days then will start ttc (have v long cycles 35+ days)

Ava1985 Wed 05-Apr-17 18:07:18

Hi all can I join you?
I'm 31 ttc3 and on cycle 3 (early miscarriage on cycle 1 in Jan/Feb sad)

Due af this weekend (about!) and we only Dtd once this month as we've been ill etc and I'm pretty sure it was after fertile window so even though I'm tech in '2ww' it's not looking good! Did a preg test few days ago and thought I got a faint line but it just doesn't add up to dates so putting it down to a dud test/Evap!
Symptoms so far are sore boobs, cramping and white discharge.
Ready to take the May train all the way and give it a good shot! X

juneybean Wed 05-Apr-17 20:06:53

excitement i think we will be cycle twins as my period is also due in 10 days

Fingers crossed for next month for everyone. flowers

Excitement2017 Wed 05-Apr-17 21:54:14

I've been using CB advanced monitor since December and it's been giving very strange results....
Always had my fertile days as day 18-21 (but if an unpredictable 35+ cycle usually). First month I got a peak on day 18, second month no peak only highs and this month a peak on day 14?! So in theory I should have my period earlier this month but I e never in my life had a 28day cycle so unsure how accurate it is !

I was hoping to build up the data before my op so that when I start ttc after my period it will tell me exactly which days !

penguinsandotters Wed 05-Apr-17 22:25:58

bubblegum so sorry to hear. Hope it all works out for you. flowers

Excitement2017 Thu 06-Apr-17 06:50:26

Looks like the May bus has gone a bit quiet? Took me a while to find it!
Hope all is well with you guys. As predicted AF got me yesterday morning so I'm on CD2 today, woogrin I'm happy that my last cycle was 35 days as they have been know to go longer! Giving may a mighty good shot! X

Hi all. Can I join?
Age 30 (nearly 31)
TTC #2

Myself and DP had a surprise pg before xmas but MMC at 8 1/2 weeks found out at 12 week scan.
It was a nice surprise but DC1 was diagnosed with Leukaemia in Sep 17 so we hadn't been trying to get pregnant due to a lot going on, but since then have decided that we should definitely try as we think DC2 would be great for DC1 and we always planned on 2!

So here we are! Good luck to you all. grin

penguinsandotters Sun 09-Apr-17 13:36:46

Hi ava I'm due to test 2nd may. Currently CD6 so patiently waiting for FW.

CD 21
Cycle no 2

I miss-timed March's Ovulation entirely so waiting for AF on 14th when I can start with Cycle no. 3. No symptoms other than a little bit of light cramping so getting ready to pay attention this month grin

Sunshinesaz86 Sun 09-Apr-17 14:34:13

Thanks penguin DS is currently doing well which is great, even though it's a long road ahead hence us deciding not to put TTC on hold as well be waiting until 2020 and DP would be nearly 40!

I'm only on CD2 we only decided this last week to definitely try again. So FW will soon come round! X
