If anyone is ttc2 and expecting their AF/ BFP in November then this thread is for you.

Let’s all give ourselves a fabulous excuse not to drink at Christmas!

My stats are as follows:

Age: 35
DS: 2 (in late November)
Cycle: 13 (lucky for some?!?!) I have short cycles so this is month 11 (yawn!)
AF/ BFP due: 2 November

Thanks for starting the thread @Cariad2014, no offence but hoping not to be on it as AF due 30th Oct,Just place holding...

Age 33
DS 3 (on 1st Nov)
Cycle 8 (early MC June)
AF 30/10

Hoping Halloween is lucky for me, went into labour with DS on Halloween and now hoping to get a bfp 🎃

Just marking my place. I'll probably straddle both threads for a while if that's ok. I'm still bf dd (16 months) which is making my cycle a bit unpredictable!

Dd 16 months
Cycle 2
Af due sometime end of October/start of November

Hi ladies, hope you don't mind me joining this thread, as I'm TTC #2, but currently in limbo at the moment awaiting af's return after being absent since march due to the depo injection. Sending loads of baby dust!

DD-25 months
Af due-?

Hope it's ok to join. After many months of discussion we have decided to go for baby number 2 and I am VERY excited. Also very nervous that it will take longer than it did with our first.

Age 31
DD was 2 in September
Cycle 1
AF 4th November

Not 100% on my AF as cycles seem to have been fluctuating between 28 and 35 days (I have been tracking since I had my daughter blush) But I think I am pretty aware of when ovulation is so keeping everything crossed.

Good luck for this month everyone.

Cariad2014 Sun 08-Oct-17 22:04:13

Welcome everyone!

Rhi - I do hope Halloween ends up being lucky for you and that you get your BFP before November starts! Halloween is actually my last day in my current job so I’m semi-tempted to test then just to see if I’ve managed to invoke the law of sod!

Welcome Elephant. Do feel free to straddle both buses. I really hope this current cycle is lucky for you.

Lexi - I really hope your AF returns very very soon (or even better, you get upduffed before she’s back)

El - I really hope you get lucky quickly this time round. A 3ish year gap sounds lovely. Xxx

Cariad2014 Sun 08-Oct-17 22:06:34

I should add that I’m likely to end up with two shots at a November BFP as my first AF should be due around the 2nd, and the next one around the 28th, so everyone on this bus will no doubt be sick of me before the end!

Emabrmsca Mon 09-Oct-17 07:10:01

Hi ttc number 2
Only came off my pill yesterday so waiting for withdrawal bleed then actual af.
How do you know when you are ovulating? I don't know how long my cycle is as it's always been all over the place

ElBronx Mon 09-Oct-17 08:26:45

Hi Emabrmsca! I have been tracking cycles for a while and notice a few different things happen around ovulation.

It's different for everyone but for me my sex drive goes through the roof (helpful), I get a lot more energy and my CF gets very egg white like too (tmi sorry!). I have a few other smaller changes too but they're the main ones. I think CF is the easiest way for me to predict when it is.

If you get an app to help track what's happening for you that can be really useful. Or of course you can use ovulation kits too!

Good luck!

Emabrmsca Mon 09-Oct-17 09:09:46

Thankyou smile
That's really helpful.
I would also like to ask; me and my partner have discussed ttc and firstly he said no definitely not, so I left it and then asked again recently and he said he doesn't want one but wants me to be happy. He said he wouldn't be unhappy if we had another but I feel like it wouldn't be the same as the first time round. I am desperate for another baby. I don't know whether going ahead with ttc is a bad idea or just to do it? What do you all think?

ClarrieWhite Mon 09-Oct-17 16:31:51

Hi All!

Back here 2 years later after having DS. The mumsnet bus is a brilliant place to keep relatively sane during the crazy ttc rollercoaster!

Implant out today so just waiting to get started. Last time I chatted my temp and did OPKs and found it helpful so plan the same this time around

I am still breastfeeding DS but only at night so hoping this doesn't impact things too much...!

Age: 32
DS 14 months
Cycle 1
Not sure on dates yet!

Baby dust star

Checking in... October TTC hasn't really happened due to reasons I explained in the previous thread sad but fingers crossed November is the month!

June I'm so sorry sad

Age: 23
DC: DD born April 2014
Cycle 5ish
Not sure when AF/BFP due

iwantthegroundtoswallowmeup Wed 11-Oct-17 06:59:41

I've got some unexplained gynaecological issues. Had a laparoscopy which showed my ovaries and tubes are fine so here's to hoping.

Age: 27
Cycle 2
Ruling out this month so hoping for BFP will happen late November.

LopeyLopez Wed 11-Oct-17 07:41:29

So sorry June ☹️flowers

Checking in here as although I haven’t had af yet this month, pretty sure I’m out as we didn’t dtd nearly enough at the right time, so hopping over from the October thread.

DS is 2
Cycle #9
November af/bfp due 15th Nov

MynameisJune Wed 11-Oct-17 09:00:08

Thanks all, I’ve got a second lot of HCG blood tests tomorrow and then the results on Friday to confirm what’s happened. We are trying to look on the brightsidw that at least we know we can get pregnant and that everything is working.

ElBronx Wed 11-Oct-17 10:21:21

Oh June I'm really sorry to hear that. Take care of yourself flowers

I can't believe how impatient I feel and it's only cycle 1! I remember being like this last time though.

Must. Stay. Calm.

LopeyLopez Mon 16-Oct-17 19:06:38

Af now officially here (😞😥) so I’m officially onto cycle 9....

MamOfFrankie Mon 16-Oct-17 19:36:47

Evening all.
Thought I would jump on the November bus as I had no luck in October.

Age 27
DC: 1 DD, now 6.
Cycle #3.

AF due 5th November and fx for this month as fertile period falls over half term, so lots of lovely time off work to DTD!
