Following on from our last (many) threads, this is one for anyone hoping for a Christmas baby number two.

My stats -

Age: 35
Cycle: 24+ lost count..
DC: 3yo this month
AF due 19th April
Not a hint of a bfp in that time

I'm charting now and send myself crazy every tww so come join me for the bumpy ride x

Bubblegum89 Sun 18-Mar-18 22:20:36

I’ll join this one.

Age: 28
Cycle: 18
DD: 9 y/o
AF due: 15th April

I’ve not had a single bfp in all that time and have had all fertility tests done and been diagnosed with unexplained infertility

CatRen27 Sun 18-Mar-18 22:32:05

Hi bubblegum thanks for joining. Unexplained infertility must be tough- you always hope there'll be a fix. Are you charting etc? You're so young, that's got to be on your side. I really hope this is your month.

I had surgery in November to remove a polyp in my uterus and they found endometriosis too. They told me i should be likely to fall pg in a few months (i.e. by now) so god knows whats going on really! I've got an appointment with my specialist mid April to make plans although not sure whether its ivf or something else

Waves hello

Age: 36
Cycle: 3
DD: 14 months
AF due: 11th April

I think DD was conceived on cycle 3 or 4, so who knows- this could be our month. I'm a bit conflicted this month, as OH has his birthday the week before Christmas, and DD the week following. Whatever will be will be I guess! And feel free to remind me of this when I'm throwing negative FRERs at the wall!!

Bubblegum89 Sun 18-Mar-18 22:45:08

Thanks cat I’ve been told by doctors that “it’ll happen” because it’s happened before. I’ve been pregnant twice both whilst on the pill, typical right? I only do opks, don’t temp because I’m up and down all night so the readings wouldn’t be very accurate. Unexplained is super annoying because there’s no reason which is hard to get your head around! That’s good news that’s they seem hopeful you’ll conceive soon smile I heard after having a hsg/HyCoSy you are more fertile but I had one done last month and I’m on cd1 today. Ttc sucks

YassQueen Mon 19-Mar-18 01:49:27

Hi all smile

Age: 23
DC: DD will be 4 in April
Cycle: 2nd post mc (MC at 6 weeks in February)
AF/BFP due: Approx April 15th

We're going to be attempting SMEP this month, night shift depending hmm would love a Christmas baby. Or any baby to be honest.

Chel1888 Mon 19-Mar-18 02:51:54

Hi ladies! I’ll join

Age: 30
Cycle: 1?
DC: 12! (Previous partner)
AF due 7th April

So trying for my 2nd, Came off the pill on 10th April really hoping I can fall this month. If not I’ll take a break next month as me and my stepson are long suffering January babies we can’t add another to the list lol.

Fingers crossed for us all 🤞🏼

MynameisJune Mon 19-Mar-18 06:22:02

Waves @catren thanks for the new thread 😊

Age: 33
Cycle: 15 over 12 months with an MC in Oct last year
DC 2yr old
Af due 8th April

I’m joining this one but it’s going to be a very relaxed month for us as DH is away most of the month and so our ability to dtd is much diminished so I’m not massively hopeful!

Cariad2017 Mon 19-Mar-18 20:24:08

Waves at CatRen. Thank you for starting the thread. Stats are as follows:

Age: 36 (next Saturday). (I was 34 when we started ttc #2)
DS: 2
Cycle: 20 (month 17)
AF due: 12 April
Not a hint of a BFP in the past 19 cycles... We think male factor could be a contributory factor but probably not enough to have made conception not happen at all so we’re also mainly unexplained... Like Bubble and Cat we got told at the fertility clinic in November that she didn’t expect to see us again as she had every confidence we’d conceive naturally before Spring... Evidently not... It now feels like we’re hurtling head first into IVF...

tweedles1511 Mon 19-Mar-18 22:56:21

Hi ladies
Can I join?

Age: 32
DC: 2.5 yrs
Cycle: 11
Had a MMC at 8 weeks in Dec followed by CP in Feb so feeling a bit battered by it all but trooping on and trying to get positive again for another go this cycle.

CatRen27 Tue 20-Mar-18 03:46:02

Calling @peanut1980 - i don't know how to post links from my phone so hoping this works!

Welcome everyone! Quite a few of us due around mid April so my fingers remain crossed for lots of simultaneous bfps.

Im also not fussy, Christmas baby or any baby would be nice thanks! The only saving grace frm last month is that i have a bbt chart for a bfn month (including a beautiful implantation dip that was anything but..!) to compare with in minute obsessive detail.. i find it keeps me from poas at least until 12dpo.. 🙈

We're planning a couple of nights away sans dd over easter and can't wait. Its just before my fertile week so looking forward to some pressure-free shagging. Its been a while!

Rainyshowers Tue 20-Mar-18 08:12:51

Hey AF arrived today so I'll join too.
Age: 30
DS: 1
Cycle: 4 after m/c in Oct but been trying since Aug 17.
AF due: 20 April

AF arrived today. I'm finding it pretty tough as TTC just hadn't been going well. I have friends due in March and April and I was meant to be May. We all have DC 1 the same age. So would have dc2 the same age too. Except I miscarried so now just have to try and hide how bothered I am that they are heavily pregnant and likely mine won't even be born the same year. Hopefully I'll feel better tomoz. Sorry for a moan on my first post!

CatRen27 Wed 21-Mar-18 06:41:44

Aw rainyshowers your moans are welcome here, quite a few of us are long time ttc-ers and totally understand how shite it feels seeing people around us have more and more children while we're struggling. I just feel really left behind all my friends who have 'finished' their families. You're welcome here! Did you have any trouble with dc1?

ready4number2 Wed 21-Mar-18 16:50:12

Hi all, I think I joined the previous thread but gave up as my cycles are so long. I just got a positive opk yesterday and this morning on CD 65 - finally!!

Age- 35
DC 1 is nearly 2
Been trying since December but only ovulated once since then, so cycle 2?

Let the 2ww commence....

Fingers crossed for everyone that the start of spring brings us all lots of joy.

HidCat Wed 21-Mar-18 16:54:29

Hi ladies, I'd like to join please as I'm out for March.

Age: 35
DS: 4
Cycle: Just waiting for AF after MC in January, still have HCG at 31 (9 weeks after).

Good luck ladies!

YassQueen Thu 22-Mar-18 16:28:40

There was a pregnancy announcement today. The same gestation I should be now. I hate this sad it's in my old postnatal group from DD and I want to leave because even if I unfollow the group it keeps popping up but I don't want them all to think I'm just bitter, I'm just not coping still.

HidCat Thu 22-Mar-18 17:47:46

Oh @YassQueen I'm so sorry. I have the same problem in work and I also have a friend who is a couple of weeks behind and getting an abortion and turning to me for support. She knows about my MC too but has never experienced it so doesn't get it.

Doesn't it feel like there are babies/pregnancies at every turn for us all? I swear there's a baby boom on atm!

MynameisJune Thu 22-Mar-18 19:37:29

@yass I’ve had this so many times on my baby group now. Those that I started TTC No2 with or started before have all had babies or are due very soon. I thought about leaving my group as well but decided not to because I’ve met many of them in real life and I love them. They saved my sanity when DD was born and before. That being said I know that had I left they would have totally understood why and I think you need to do what is best for you no matter what.

Peanut1980 Fri 23-Mar-18 20:35:44

Thanks @catren27. Sooo here we go again...

Age 37
DS 4
Ttc for 14 cycles miscarriage in August.

Have no idea where I am in cycle right now. Was due on period this week but had weird bleeding 2 weeks into my cycle. Not sure if that was an early period. I’m usually regular but this last cycle has left me scratching my head 🤔

sodababy2 Sat 24-Mar-18 22:50:43


Hopping on if that's ok?

Cycle 7 for me. BFP in February but lost it at 5 weeks sad
DD aged 18 months
BFP due 16th April
Getting pretty despondent about the whole thing now. Have given up temping this month as getting too obsessed.

Waves frantically @mayago We know each other from our first babies. I had a similar username..... xx

CatRen27 Mon 26-Mar-18 08:04:57

Hey peanut that is strange! You couldn't be upduffed could you - implantation bleeding? Sorry i didn't check march tread to see if you'd poas..

And welcome sodababy! Sorry you're feeling over it, totally get it. Maybe keeping things less stressy will take the pressure off this month. I've gone totally the opposite, after 2 years ttc I'm data obsessed, charting and using no less than 3 apps.. oh dear!

TwittleBee Mon 26-Mar-18 09:09:32

Hi again all!
AF arrived yesterday so here I am again. Hoping we get BFP for xmas/new year babies. If I conceive this cycle I will have a due date on my birthday (NYD) !! FX

Age: 24
Cycle: 8
AF due: 24th April

This time round we are really cutting out the caffeine and alcohol (may have still been having the cheeky coffee at work) Also got all the vitamins e.g. B for me and zinc for OH.

Peanut1980 Mon 26-Mar-18 10:06:18

Hi @catren27 no I didn’t poas but just did and it’s a negative. So I’m going on the basis that it was an early period which means I may have ovulated last week and based on my calculations that was the day we dtd. The only day last week 🙈 I’ve just been so confused about what’s going on I thought I’d just wait for my next period to start tracking again. Would be crazy if the one month I’m not tracking it does happen. I have been having cramps, more discharge and am very moody these past few days. I’m wondering whether I am pregnant now which would be a bloody miracle. I don’t have sore boobs though. Anyway, I’ll go on the assumption I’m not until my next period is due which I think is about Wednesday next week. I don’t get my hopes up but we’ll see! 👀👀👀🤞

mayago Mon 26-Mar-18 14:20:36

Hi Soda!! TTC1 seems like a lifetime ago now, doesn't it?! Lovely to see familiar faces the second time around smile I'm sorry to hear about your mc. Winter babies are so much fun; fingers crossed for this month!

YassQueen Mon 26-Mar-18 17:55:07

Are OPKs supposed to have a faint line all month around and then a strong one when you're ovulating? I did one today (CD8 I think) and there's no second line whatsoever.
