@fayy123 I was just over 5 weeks. I have a good feeling about this month...It is Christmas after all :D

fayy123 Mon 02-Dec-19 23:32:05

Aww sorry to hear.. how far gone was you? hopefully this is our month x

MrsKJW19 Mon 02-Dec-19 22:16:50

Hi Ladies!

I'm trying SMEP this month too! I had an early mc last month, and just finished my first cycle since (super long & heavy confused )
Fingers crossed for us all!!

fayy123 Mon 02-Dec-19 21:37:35

Aww goodluck! How long have you been trying for?

NCON Mon 02-Dec-19 20:31:36

Hey ladies, I'm thinking about giving this a go too! Only on CD4. First month trying OPK's and temping too so dunno if I'll be able to keep up with everything 😂 if ye start a new thread add me in please 😊

Ive just casually started ‘trying’ last month. But I’m determined to give SMEP a go this month. I’ve been on the implant and pill for a year and a half! X

fayy123 Mon 02-Dec-19 19:01:17

Aww hello! I’ve literally just googled SMEP ttc and signed up to this, as it’s nice to have someone to talk to when you’re ttc. Is this your first month trying SMEP? I’ve already started yesterday ( eager beaver 😂) . I don’t know how to create a new thread. Do you?

danielasummer Mon 02-Dec-19 18:53:18

@fayy123 hi lovely, yes I will be next cycle if I'm not pregnant this one! Good luck to us both! How long have you been trying for? PS. Please feel free to create a new SMEP thread and add me in as I know this one is an old thread x

Hello, anyone doing SMEP 2019?😂! I hope you all have healthy and wonderful babies it’s been a year 🙈 and I’ve just across this thread. Cycle day 8 for me and first time trying SMEP!

Hey all.

I've been ttcing for 7 cycles now and this is the first trying SMEP! I've followed it to the T and got my positive opk on Friday. Baby danced Friday and Saturday but skipped yesterday due to tiredness. Do you think we have ruined our chances? Thanks 🙂

Hi guys. Can I join. We were ttc for almost a year then tried smep with fertility gel/lube. BFP first month trying! Sadly we lost the baby a few weeks ago at 8weeks. Had to have erpc (op to remove baby) which I had on 18th Jan. Desperate to be pregnant again. Have had a crazy month of hormones readjusting but have reset my CBFM and it looks like my hormones are levelling out a little. If I take CD1 as the day of the op, I’m on cd 14. I usually ov around cd12-14 and have 26 day cycles.
So far this month we’ve DTD on cd 6, 8, 10 and 11. We’ll DTD again tonight then I’m hoping soon for a peak so we can go three in a row.
Fingers crossed for all those awaiting a BFP
And congrats to all those who got their BFP.

Thanks! Can't quite believe it worked first time (we did have a lot of sex though smile)

DaisyMay25 Mon 29-Jan-18 16:45:11

@SoupyNorman I see a line for sure!!


SoupyNorman Mon 29-Jan-18 16:17:45

I think this is a success story.... can anyone see this line? It's about 12DPO I reckon, with a Tesco cheapie.

This is our second month TTC, first month we did SMEP (and PreSeed) properly. If all goes well, this will be our second baby (had 2 mcs before DD1 so wary of being too elated).

DaisyMay25 Mon 29-Jan-18 09:57:02

@hurrythefuckupgeorge AF is due on 10th but I'll be testing from 4ty because I'll be 10dpo (I ovulated slightly early this month)

I need to find some distractions!

hurrythefuckupgeorge Mon 29-Jan-18 09:40:52

@DaisyMay25 I am testing on the 8th with AF due about the 12th. It seems so long! Thankfully we are away this weekend so that is a distraction.

How long have you to wait?

DaisyMay25 Mon 29-Jan-18 09:26:40

@hurrythefuckupgeorge waiting is the worst bit! When's AF due for you? And when will you be testing?

I've just finished my first month of SMEP so now I'm stuck waiting too!

hurrythefuckupgeorge Mon 29-Jan-18 09:09:50

Congratulations @katievb!

I am now in the waiting period, aargh I wish you didn't have to wait so long.

Birchgirl Sat 27-Jan-18 11:43:33

Ah this makes me feel so positive!

I really hope it works x

Bumbumtaloo Sat 27-Jan-18 10:55:50

Sorry to jump on your thread ladies. We used SMEP with pre-seed and our DD is now 8yo.

Month 1 - came off pill so not really ‘trying’
Month 2 - just having fun trying
Month 3 - SMEP & pre-seed pregnant!

Good luck to you all flowers

Birchgirl Sat 27-Jan-18 10:02:36

I think I might give that a go. TBH I’m not much of an alcohol drinker anyway but I probably do need to drink more water x

Katievb Sat 27-Jan-18 10:01:15

The only thing I really did this month was I started drinking 2-3litres of water a day because I read a article about how dehydration can affect your fertility (don’t know if it’s true) and cut out chocolate, crisps and alcohol... not saying it worked but worth a try xx

Birchgirl Sat 27-Jan-18 09:45:15

Ah really? It was meant to be then! flowers

We dtd last night and got a positive opk today so now need to start the 3 days in a row confused . Need to try to find the energy from somewhere! Haha

Katievb Sat 27-Jan-18 09:43:30

Sorry that was suppose to say we did it everyday from CD10
