Hi all, so I’m in first week of my cycle , CD 4 to be exact, third cycle TTC #2! Anyone else similar and would like some support ? I don’t have anyone to talk about this with RL!

TeddyIsaHe Mon 08-Jan-18 15:58:37

Me! Ttc #2 Dd is nearly 1, and she was a first time trying baby, so I’m hoping we have luck this time.

I’m into my 2ww now. Excited and nervous!

Stee1 Mon 08-Jan-18 16:29:57

Ttc#2 cycle 4 but 3 trying due to ovulate around friday/Saturday be nice to have a bfp for my birthday end of month instead of flo 👌

Hi ! Oh that’s exciting teddy, when are u due to test? Fingers crossed for you!

Have either of you been using opks or anything? Isn’t it difficult not to become obsessed very quickly ?! What’s the plan of action this month?

Stee1 Mon 08-Jan-18 17:00:33

I got caught in may but ended in ectopic so was allowed from October to start again. Yes I've bought clearblue ovulation tests and this month I've bought preseed as I don't get much cm really. Are you using opks? X

Trytrytry2018 Mon 08-Jan-18 17:18:24

I’ll join! I’m cycle day 6 and have just got high fertility on a Clearblue OPK. Super early for ovulation but I’m going to see what happens 😊 Stee1 so sorry to hear about your ectopic. I had one a year ago too, was bloody awful and had to have my tube removed - have you found your cycles are a bit messed up since? Mine go 24,28,33 in cycles....very strange!

Trytrytry2018 Mon 08-Jan-18 17:19:44

I’m using Clearblue advance tests and have just ordered some conceive plus but as I’m ovulating now I don’t think i’ll get to use it this cycle - fingers crossed I won’t need it 😂

LyraPotter Mon 08-Jan-18 17:29:38

Me! 2nd cycle ttc my first. Keeping fingers crossed for everyone!

Brownbear84 Mon 08-Jan-18 17:31:32

Meeeee! Ovulated 30th December dtd 29,30,31 and 1st but got a feeling not got caught this month don't know why? I've been really poorly with the flu. Today I'm having terrible backache and period type pains so guess I'm going to come on at the weekend as I should xx

Stee1 Mon 08-Jan-18 17:41:14

Not nice I didn't lose a tube as they caught it early so treated with methotrexate. My periods have usually been 29-30 days so I'm pretty regular I just get light periods although I can't remember my periods before as I was on the implant for 8 years with no periods. I'm hoping this preseed works magic my son turns 9 this year so a big age gap 🙈

Babydust18 Mon 08-Jan-18 18:55:12

I’ll join. First cycle ttc #1 af due Saturday. I swear I have symptoms that I don’t normally feel but think I’m over thinking everything!

If bfn this month next month I’m going to start temping because can’t pinpoint exact ovulation day with the test strips.

Good luck to you all 😊

justanotherday4 Mon 08-Jan-18 22:34:38

Stee and trytry sorry to hear you went through ectopic pregnancy, must have been so tough. I hope that you get your bfps really soon. Yes I’m going to use opks this month but won’t start them to CD 7/8 probably! I was so much more laid back when TTC my ds!

Celebelly Mon 08-Jan-18 22:56:45

Patiently waiting for ovulation so we can get down to it! Should be soon but my cycles have been a bit erratic recently with moving house, holidays and Xmas.

Good luck to all!

Stee1 Tue 09-Jan-18 07:19:41

Mine is soon but still doing the deed lol still flashinf smiley today think my peak will be within next 2 days

Trytrytry2018 Tue 09-Jan-18 08:55:43

justanotherday4 thanks 💐 I hope so too 🤞 I decided to test OPK at CD 4 as I just had a feeling I was going to ovulate early this month. DTD as much as possible (twice this morning hehe). Will test from 9DPO because i’m Obsessed 😂

Maidmummy Tue 09-Jan-18 09:00:18

I'll join. TTC #3 on month 8 of trying and due to ovulate in the next 2 days.

Me and DP have decided to stop the ovulation tests, temping and DTD on the 'best' days and we are going with 'if it happens then it happens' approach. I am still continuing to take my seven seas trying for a baby vitamins but purely to help get my body healthy and baby ready for if and when it does happen.

Good luck ladies x

TeddyIsaHe Tue 09-Jan-18 12:36:50

Argh I forgot how long and annoying the tww is! Haven’t done this since I conceived Dd and thought I’d be way more chilled this time... nope!

justanotherday4 Wed 10-Jan-18 21:01:40

The whole process just seems to take so long doesn’t it! I’ve had a hellish couple of days in work so am taking the good of today only being cycle day 6 and enjoying a large glass of red! What day do you all typically start with opks?

Stee1 Wed 10-Jan-18 21:32:40

Still flashing smiley on the opk today think ovulation day will be Saturday as the apps say. I started with cd 8 as sometimes I ovulate a few days early

AmazingGrace16 Wed 10-Jan-18 21:36:26

Can I join?
CD 4 ttc#2 and we've been trying for about 6 months ish but last cycle was my first attempt at doing it on the right days etc.
I hate cheapy opks so thinking of getting a cb one. How do they work?

Love2cook Fri 12-Jan-18 09:25:33

Me too! Cycle day 12 today, being showing highs on the CBFM since day 8 but it's my first cycle using it so not sure if that's right. Hoping for my peak this weekend, possibly a bit later as cycles still longer after coming off the bcp.

Stee1 Fri 12-Jan-18 09:45:25

Still high for me may get my peak tomorrow when we are away with 26 other people sharing a dorm 😑

Stee1 Fri 12-Jan-18 11:29:20

Finally a solid... good luck everyone 👍

Flev Fri 12-Jan-18 11:45:58

We're on month 4 TTC our first - and I'm almost 40 so there's just something nagging in the back of my head saying this is never going to happen.

However, I used OPKs this month and finally got a solid smiley for the first time ever - so my body is evidently doing something right. Ironically that coincided with the only 36hr period when neither DH or I have been in bed with flu-type thing so we DTD a couple of times. Now halfway through the 2ww, with slightly more hope than usual...

justanotherday4 Fri 12-Jan-18 17:17:57

Yay for the positive opks ! Af just finished here so will be starting with opks myself soon and really going to try dtd more often to give us half a chance!
