Welcome all anti-fertile fuckers! This is our clique for those trying longer than 6 cycles and are pretty fed up.

Here are our Fucked Off TTC Commandments

- Thou shall not arrive one day and post BFP next day
- Thou shall not give advice to other when TTC for one month only
- Thou shall not participate in one-up-manship and realise TTC is shit for everyone in different ways
- Thou shall allow posters to be fucked off with the world and everything in it at regular points in the month
- Thou shall not be offended by strong language
- Thou shall not tell everyone to eat yams
- Thou shall accept being called a muppet for testing at 7dpo at 9pm at night

Our spreadsheet which includes what supplements (and potatoes) we are trying in our journey to motherhood.

Thanks for setting up the new thread @juneybean

Yay Sooz !!

And thanks Juney for the new thread and commandments.

I'm pretty convinced that AF is arriving early for me (not early according to FF - damn, how is that so scarily accurate?). My temp has dropped, my resting heart rate has been dropping all week and PMS has turned me into a -bigger- bitch angry

Juney you are a bloomin superstar. Thank you.
Congratulations soozc so happy for you xx

Mrsjones17 Sun 22-Oct-17 09:57:57

@juney thanks for the new thread! Haha loving the title and rules! Especially Muppet for testing 9dpo!

How are u feeling must be into week 2 by now?

juneybean Sun 22-Oct-17 10:03:24

I'm 12dpo feeling crampy sad but haven't got my usual sore boobs (but I didn't last month either so putting that down to the acupuncture?!) think we will be unable to cycle next month as well sad

Where's every one else up?

LimpLettice Sun 22-Oct-17 10:12:29

Lovely Juney thank you. Good to have stats at the top as I can never find it.

hellybellyjellybean Sun 22-Oct-17 10:16:22

Just finished my period so just getting geared up for lots of sex, going away for the half term week so won't be too tired as normally am or busy with school work so gonna jump DH at every opportunity! Got him on vitamins c now as well as heard that can help improve sperm quality. Spoke to someone irl on Friday who had trouble conceiving and just glad to talk to someone (and she's not having anymore so won't have to deal with her getting pregnant at any point!)

Mamabooksbabynumber2 Sun 22-Oct-17 10:23:33

Wow sooz congratulations!!! Excellent new thread start! How many cycles did it take?

juney thread title and intro post cracked me up.

Here's to some more bfp on this here anti-fertile thread wine 🍾

Mamabooksbabynumber2 Sun 22-Oct-17 10:25:50

Am I able to add my stats for spreadsheet juney please?

Not sure if or how I do it myself.

Age 31
Ttc 2

Mamabooksbabynumber2 Sun 22-Oct-17 10:30:48

Bfp due 5th nov xx

Mrsjones17 Sun 22-Oct-17 10:42:31

@juney. Looks like the accupuncture is having an effect then? I'm off for mine again on Monday. Fingers crossed you won't need next month but can empathize with the frustrations if you think you can't. How many days until you will test.

@hellybelly wishing you a lovely break filled with lots of sex haha!!! Are you a teacher too?

pinkdonkey Sun 22-Oct-17 11:00:20

Loving the title! Well I have now passed the 18 months ttc mark, currently on cd 46 with no idea if or when I ovulated now. DH has finally managed to give up smoking Yay. I'm almost off the medication I blame for messing up my lovely regular cycles too so hopefully they will return to normal soon. DH is seeing his psychiatrist this week and I'm so tempted to ask if his meds could be affecting fertility, but I know I won't because messing with his meds could make him very ill and nothing is worth that even a bfp.

juneybean Sun 22-Oct-17 11:05:45

Welcome pinkdonkey !

Bubblegum89 Sun 22-Oct-17 11:07:38

grin love this juneybean

Bubblegum89 Sun 22-Oct-17 11:09:36

(Also my stats are age 28 ttc #2 cycle 11. Just noticed there’s only my supplements on there lol)

micropig Sun 22-Oct-17 11:31:24

Congrats @SoozC what a great way to finish this thread!!! So happy for you!

Thanks for starting this thread @juneybean 😁

Getting the PMS emotional rollercoaster now to coincide with returning to work after my holiday. I almost burst into tears yesterday after tripping up over someone's tiny dog that ran into my feet (I didn't fall over, just felt so bad that I could have killed it!) and was roaring laughing at Brooklyn 99 last night which I enjoy but I never actually laugh out loud at lol.

I've had the tearyness before but never the laughter. I get PMS teary at happy or sad films usually. There was one I had to pause as I was crying so much (DH thought I'd lost it) and it wasn't even at a major scene really. When I'm due AF I can only watch programmes that are pretty much guaranteed to be stupid and happy and even then I start happy-crying at things.

Blackcatonthesofa Sun 22-Oct-17 11:32:38

Waiting for my iui today, i have never felt so hormonal before, does anyone recognize this? Have been crying and feeling stressed since friday. The other times I was relaxed. Ttc 4 years, clomid, stims, now 6th iui. After this will try ivf.

justmeonly Sun 22-Oct-17 12:03:41

Amazing title and list of rules Juney! Late ovulating and OH being away on business means we didn't even try this cycle 😞😞😞. Roll on AF and I can get started again.

justmeonly Sun 22-Oct-17 12:08:16

Wow and congrats to Sooz!!!

Summer1986 Sun 22-Oct-17 12:13:01

Welcome pinkdonkey and blackcat.

I'm CD 23 today, 9dpo acc to my app but 11dpo based on ov pains. Don't feel PMSy yet but don't have any of the symptoms I had with my last bfp either (was exhausted with extremely sensitive sense of smell during the latter part of my tww last time). I bought tickets to a gig next summer which I was PG this cycle would be a week before I was due.

Janefx40 Sun 22-Oct-17 12:16:47

Welcome @pinkdonkey @Blackcatonthesofa

@SoozC Hooray hooray hooray again!!! You have given me hope when I was thinking "what's the point"

@Blackcatonthesofa I've not done IUI but last month I had so many hormones I just flat out sobbed for 5 days straight: DP didn't know what to do with me. This month I am upset that we have another failed cycle under our belt but not in a hormonal way. I've no idea why some months the hormones are worse than others.

juneybean Sun 22-Oct-17 12:23:32

Does any one else avoid DTD in the two week wait? I feel like I read somewhere that the waves from an orgasm can disrupt implantation...

LimpLettice Sun 22-Oct-17 12:53:49

Don’t tell me that Juney! Not another bloody thing to avoid. Mind you it’s easy enough in the week. Double stress this cycle now the clearblue has failed. Pah.

Janefx40 Sun 22-Oct-17 13:11:29

@juneybean I did at first but don't now. It was having a negative impact on our relationship that we were having stressful sex during fertile week, then no sex (or else one sided sex!) and then my period.
