TTC November thread!

It was really nice to have the support of fellow MNers last month!
So here goes... November TTC Thread!
I'm 24, have 1 DD who is 3, DP & I have been TTC for 4 months now.
Fingers crossed this month is my lucky month!
My ovulation dates this month should be somewhere between the 5th and 14th, with the 9th & 10th at highest LH surges.
So will be testing towards the end of the month, not looking forward to the 2ww...
Anyone else with similar timings?

Good luck 💖
I have my fingers crossed for you all X

RockingLobstering Thu 02-Nov-17 13:24:07

RainbowWish when are you testing? smile

I'm 31, ttc #1 and on my third cycle. Due to ovulate tomorrow according to my app, not temping or using opks yet. Af due on the 17th and I have decided I will not test this month unless I am actually late. Self control!! deep breath

Hi Daisymalone!
I know the struggle of trying to resist testing! I buy those cheapy cheap stick tests- bout £3 for 10, this helps stopping me spending out on all the expensive ones.... I've promised myself I won't buy any expensive tests until AF is due!

NelleB Thu 02-Nov-17 16:30:00

Same here. Cycle 2... due to test tomorrow. Currently at Doctors as I think I have a kidney infection ☹️ Good luck too all x

NelleB Thu 02-Nov-17 16:30:35

I have done the same. Ebay cheapies. Saves the expense of CB

Hello! TTC #1 and on my second cycle smile af finished two days ago. Fingers crossed for all!

RockingLobstering nice to see someone in similar fw, a lot of people seem to be testing earlier in the month.
I'm 29 ttc#1 this is cycle 5 actively trying although been off the pill since March. FW from 11th-18th af/bfp due around 28th
Is anyone trying anything different this month?

FruitandNutty Sat 04-Nov-17 16:04:13

@merrz story sounds familiar! I'm in v similar position - aged 28 and ttc #1. Cycle number 3/4 now as unsure if first cycle was very well timed really. I know it's still early days but everyone I know who has had a baby it happened in their first or second month max, including my mum, 2 colleagues and a good friend! have actually bought a Persona monitor as I think I am unsure about when exactly I O..

How’s everyone getting on? X

RockingLobstering Tue 14-Nov-17 12:59:15

3 days until I can supposedly test! (According to clearblue site)
Have managed to hold off peeing on sticks up till now, reckon I'll end up buying a clearblue one soon despite having 25+ cheapy test sticks...
How is everyone else holding up?

Daisymalone Tue 14-Nov-17 13:41:28

3 days until af is due! I suppose thinking about it I could probably test tomorrow but I promised myself I would wait until the day and I've not caved yet! I was feeling really hopeful for a bfp earlier in the month but I seem to have lost that hope over the last few days. 🤔 Not really sure why though.... Fingers crossed for everyone!

Merrz Tue 14-Nov-17 14:15:31

*@RockingLobstering I'm CD 17, think i've had ovulation signs over the last 24 hours or so. DTD last night and planning to again tonight or tomorrow am so fingers crossed! Didn't use opks and feeling a lot more relaxed about it all this cycle, think because been busy at work and all the Xmas chat/planning starting so keeping my mind occupied. How you feeling? Just want the next 2 weeks to past quickly

FruitandNutty Tue 14-Nov-17 17:57:16

Got AF although was weirdly short like 2 days of proper AF then spotting. Anyway trying again and this month using my persona..

Mandala23 Tue 14-Nov-17 20:03:06

Goodluck everyone! Ergh I feel so behind haha - I’m either 4dpo or in my fertile week - I don’t track with OPKs but kinda wish I had now. Ovia is saying I’m in my fertile week whereas Glow and Flo say it was last week!!

Merrz Wed 15-Nov-17 08:41:30

@Mandala23 I'm the same, think i'm 2 dpo. Af/BFP due 28th/29th Nov

Mandala23 Thu 16-Nov-17 21:00:46

Goodluck @Merrz! I’m now 6dpo I think. Had sore boobs and heart burn today but surely it’s too soon for symptoms?

RockingLobstering Fri 17-Nov-17 13:14:18

Tested this morning on a cheapy cheap stick test, BFN as expected but testing with First Response tomorrow.
Major sore boobs but no other symptoms as far as I'm aware-- and boobs could be incoming period related anyway.

Fingers crossed for all of you!

Mandala23 Fri 17-Nov-17 23:59:21

Goodluck for tomorrow @Rocking! Fx! My boobs are now verrrrry sore and I went to have a glass of wine tonight and it tasted vile! Strange for me. Trying not to get my hopes up too much though. Think I can test Tuesday/Wednesday.

Rockinglobstering Sat 18-Nov-17 10:23:02

Think it's another BFN but also think I can see a second line faintly. Opinions anyone?

FruitandNutty Sat 18-Nov-17 12:18:11

Looks like a bfp to me Hun! Congrats!!

Mandala23 Sat 18-Nov-17 22:53:55

I can definitely see something there @Rocking!! 😃

8 dpo here now. Boobs still sore, weird crampy feeling and a small pain on my left side today - trying not to get my hopes up but it’s getting harder!!

Rockinglobstering Sun 19-Nov-17 03:04:17

Good luck to all of you...looks like this month was indeed my lucky month! Now to get through the next few scariest months!

HoneyCake86 Sun 19-Nov-17 10:26:04

Wooo Congrats lobster! I find FR really good for very early BFPs.

CD11 of cycle #1 here and starting the opk testing with internet cheapies. Negative so far. Im playing it by ear this cycle because ive not long come off the pill. FX to everyone in the 2ww
