So in the absence of our lovely founder Hippy, I've set up thread #6 to help us keep up the motivation and PMA.

Congratulations to all our grads, the rest of us may be slacking behind but we'll be there soon!


ArchiesMamaBird Mon 15-May-17 19:57:51

Oh and post your stats below and I'll do a new list if everyone wants one?

Mine are:

ttc #2
Cycle 11
BFP due 5th June

CakesALot Mon 15-May-17 20:08:16

Hi! Sorry, been so bad at keeping in touch, so glad I caught the new thread!

Amazing news @AmandaP86x!!! That's a beaut of a BFP. Well done for holding out so long, bet it feels worth all that wait now though.

TTC #2
Cycle 7
BFP due on Wednesday!!!!

I'm in denial that I'm this close. I don't want to test. There are none in the house. I'm waiting it out the old fashioned way. Boobs are defo sore and I don't normally get that with af but otherwise I do feel like she's on her way. We'll see!

ArchiesMamaBird Mon 15-May-17 20:18:32

Cakes that sounds promising! Any new symptom can be an indication of pregnancy (unless you're me, in which case I get completely different symptoms every month and still no BFP πŸ™„)

BellaMoon Mon 15-May-17 20:34:41

Amandaaaaaaa!!!!! Yesssss! Congratulations lovely! What a BFP! So strong! Massive congrats to you! I hope you REALLY enjoyed your sangria on holiday since it will be your last drink for a while! grin

Thread 5 was definitely the most successful yet - let's keep the momentum going ladies (no pressure!)

Right Mrs - do the needful and share what you did / didn't do / did differently this cycle! There has to be conceive plus involved!?

Hi @hippy smile xo ps very strange not seeing your posts on green!

Ps thank you @Archies for setting up the new thread!

Pps @bella I think that is #luckybfpnumber10 - dolly, me, goldi, ohb, you, rose, patient, Amanda! That's only 8 - tbh I'm impressed I remembered that many! There are 2 more recent ones I think from the last thread - i will blame baby brain! Who have I forgetten?! (So sorry!)

loababy Mon 15-May-17 21:10:37

Yay new thread, new positive vibes!!

Cycle #9
BFP due Wednesday

Currently experiencing the worst af cramps and symptoms ever...whilst of course holding out for a miracle!!

AmandaP86x Mon 15-May-17 21:17:35

Hi lovely ladies.

Thanks so much for all the love I'm actually still in shock. Not going to lie I'm a bit petrified 😭 Just cause of what happened last time but I'm remaining positive. Going to take it easy.

DP was so funny - we came back from hol & I said ok I'm going round to chemist to get some tests - ran upstairs to toilet and he was in bedroom so I'm unwrapping and about to POAS and he was trying to come in πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I was like get out!!! He pure waited outside the door bless - I opened it and I'm like so what so u think and he's like by the big smile on your face I take it it's good news haha!!! He was over the moon too. Both just so apprehensive!

Ha ha @moo I know 😨 I would never ever held out as long if I was home.

This cycle I totally relaxed remember I was pure not well in my bed for a week and off work (iv heard loads of stories about people getting upduffed after being not well actually) ALSO I was overdosing probably on cough medicine - iv read on another thread that people take it to help thin their CM - and honestly I remember the night I know I ovulated cause I honestly felt like I had peed myself 😐😧 so I don't know if it was to do with that or not!!


CakesALot Mon 15-May-17 21:20:33

Let's hope our wombs are just stretching to cause these cramps hey @loababy!! Has to be!!

loababy Mon 15-May-17 21:24:07

@cakesalot deffo has to be πŸ˜‚

CakesALot Mon 15-May-17 21:30:57

Love that it happened for you on a random cycle @AmandaP86x. Shows it just happens when it's meant to really!

ArchiesMamaBird Mon 15-May-17 21:46:35

I had to double take then Hippy when I saw your name wasn't green!!

Amanda I also love that it happened for you on the cycle that you weren't really trying, definitely proves the point that it will happen when it's meant to, and as long as we keep DTD then that's all we can do to help it along really!

Did you mentions Sopshta in the grads list above?

Moo31 Mon 15-May-17 22:05:47

Oh no sorry soph! So that's 9. Who is the 10th?! Show yourself! grin

@amanda that's a fab bfp story! So we're adding cough mixture to the list of fertility enhancing methods! Lol so pleased for you! smile

AmandaP86x Mon 15-May-17 22:06:17

@cakes & @ Archies I know like I do believe something's must help but with the knowledge of how easy some folk fall pregnant "missing one pill" "having sex once" I always just believe when it's ur time it's ur time.

Hoping you all join me soon ladies πŸ€—

I just don't feel like I can actually get excited the now 😒 Wahhh!

Sophsta Mon 15-May-17 22:16:52

No worries moo! Sign of a successful thread I say!

My stats are:
Age: 28
TTC: 1
BFP: 2/5/17
Due date: January 5th 2018

Dollydaydream2829 Mon 15-May-17 22:19:39

Ah yesssss congrats amanda - super chuffed for you!! And what a strong BFP it is! Cling on to the fact that although you have had the misfortune of going through something awful last pregnancy, there is NOTHiNG to suggest this will be anything other than a very healthy, sticky bean 😊

Thanks for the new thread archie - I hope making the list will bring that lovely BFP your way - my stats :

Lucky BFP 03/03
Cycle 6
EDD 11/11

What are your thoughts on downs screening ladies? You'll have already either had it or not moo and ohb....
I ended up opting for it after we discussed it, but at the end of the day, it really didn't matter to us. Had the results today and came back low risk anyway but I felt it created an unnecessary worry for us in the two week wait.... why the fuck is everything long and torturous, a TWW?! Lol!

MissMagpie Mon 15-May-17 22:32:32

Oh my god! Congratulations Amanda!!
That is one mega line in a Frer too. It is more than sure!!

ArchiesMamaBird Mon 15-May-17 22:34:03

Dolly we had the downs test with DS, but we were young and a bit scared and took everything offered to us!! I think I'd have it again next time around, but like you said, it honestly wouldn't change anything if it did come back as high risk. When you've got that precious baby in your arms, I don't think anything could make you love them any less/differently, no matter what 😊

MissMagpie Mon 15-May-17 22:34:27

Thanks for the psychic vibes Archies. I will take any help I can get.

Don't know if my shortlived BFP is/was counted in the stats and that's the one missing? Soon to be replaced by a sticky bean worth holding on to....

sarahboro1 Mon 15-May-17 22:56:40

Congratulations Amanda!!!! That is a fabulous bfp!! What a week you are having and well done for waiting it out!! #amandasagrad #beansfirstholiday!! Xx

sarahboro1 Mon 15-May-17 23:01:45

Did I hear cough medicine??!!! Oh tixylix here I come that stuff is pure nectar!!! πŸ˜‚ Xx

AmandaP86x Mon 15-May-17 23:33:06

Aww thanks @dolly. I know your so right. As you know I work in gynae so I can get early reassurance scans at EPU. So hopefully that will help with the nerves. Hope u & bump r good 😘

Thanks girls & ha ha loving the #beansfirstholiday haha so cute.

I am not sure about the DS test like you say I would love the baby regardless. Again it's another worry isn't it! 😭

Ha ha yes @sarah I swear iv read it in other threads and I can honestly say that's all I done diff this month!!!!

Also talking about PG symptoms I remember someone who got a BFP recently said about their pee smelling lol - this totally happened to me! I actually done a pee and DP was bursting pure barged in and he's like ur pee stinks ( ha sorry TMI )

AmandaP86x Mon 15-May-17 23:34:06
