Who’s TTC a Christmas Baby. March 2018

Not that I specifically want a Christmas baby. But my LMP was the 20th March so that means, going by a 28 day cycle, if I fell pregnant this month, Baby’s ‘estimated’ due date would be Christmas Day!!!!!!!!

It’s the first month that I’ve felt ready to start trying again after a miscarriage and my cycles haven’t been completely regular.
Ranging from 27 - 30 days. So I’m using OPK’s and Temping to try and pinpoint ovulation.

Should be ovulating within the next 4 days.

Anyone else actively trying this week?
Let’s make this a ‘LIVE’ 2WW thread.
I’m 30, and trying for #1

lrwe Sat 31-Mar-18 08:52:07

Ooh hello! I am! My cycles are on the 32 day side and last LMP was 19 March.

I’m TTC my third.

Hi magical creatures, sorry to hear about your MC. yes I am with you! Although I know i wouldn't want my birthday around Christmas time!!
I had my LMP 17th March and ovulated around 27th March so currently just waiting! My cycles are 24 days long so would be due AF 10th April.
I'm 28 and trying for #1
Good luck everyone

Hi. Thanks for not leaving me on my lonesome smile

So when are you thinking you’ll ovulate.
Are you temping etc. X

Cakelaur Sat 31-Mar-18 08:59:32

Morning ladies. Sorry for your loss @MagicalCreatures. I'm in the same boat, 3rd cycle since MC.
I'm now 5dpo and due date would be 17th December. I never wanted a Christmas baby until I lost my little bean. Now I couldn't care less when a baby comes I just wanna hold my rainbow.
Oh and stats:
I'm 33
TTC #1
3rd cycle since mc. (Fell pregnant first time after almost a year trying)
🤞🏻for some sticky Christmas beans!!

MagicalCreatures Sat 31-Mar-18 09:00:31

Hi loupelou7
I know, and I wouldn’t wanna be giving birth Christmas Day. But the chances are slim ofcorse. And we can’t let that stop us.

Ooo so your actually in your 2WW. How exciting. Keep us updated x

MagicalCreatures Sat 31-Mar-18 09:04:48

Sorry for your loss too.
I feel the same. Wanted this, wanted that. Now don’t want anything else but my baby.

So you’ll be testing soon.
I got my first BFP at 9dpo
Let us know x

Hello, me! I checked the due date calculator and it said if we got pregnant this cycle I would be due 30th December. Still, don't want to miss a cycle!

TTC #1, Cycle 9 I think, first cycle using medication. Last cycle was 45 days and the one before that was 49 so I'm hoping the medication evens it out a bit! No idea when I'll ovulate but if the meds do their work I should in the next week.

MagicalCreatures Sat 31-Mar-18 09:16:48

Welcome to the group hummuss
What medication are you taking. And is it to specifically help shorten your cycles or something then.
And ofcorse, never want to miss a cycle. Like some people say, baby’s come whenever they want. Could be 2 months early or 2 weeks late x

Timewaitsfornowoman Sat 31-Mar-18 09:17:44

I am too! This is my first cycle post MMC so I would be very lucky - we can but dream!

Got a static smiley on CB OPK this morning so will be getting busy this weekend. I'm 29 and TTC #1. I think my due date would be around 16th Dec.

MagicalCreatures Sat 31-Mar-18 10:08:35

So sorry about your MMC
Looks like your in for a fun Easter weekend smile

So for the ones who have already ovulated -
Are you doing the ‘dreaded’ symptom spotting yet.
I knew I’d conceived the first time about 4dpo x

TheTittifersHaveSungTheirSong Sat 31-Mar-18 10:34:15

I am too! TTC #2, currently on 4th cycle?!
Long cycles seem to be settling around 38days atm but got my first flashy face on OPK this morning so fingers crossed this week is a good one!!
A Christmas baby isn’t ideal necessary, but hey ho...I’m not going to be picky!!

Cakelaur Sat 31-Mar-18 10:58:28

I'm not doing too much symptom spotting cos since the mmc, but body has had weird twinges like when I was pregnant. But we DTD 8 days in a row from cd8-cd15 and I ovulated on cd14. I'm using natural progesterone cream from 1dpo-12dpo and eating pineapple core from 1dpo-5dpo. We used fertility check lube every time and I have a nice relaxing weekend. There is NOTHING more I can do this month. So I'm quite relaxed. The TWW is killing me only cos I'm impatient and wanna test but I'm optimistic for the first time in a while. And hey.... if it's not this month... it might be next month.

Morning ladies smile

Sorry to hear about your MC magicalcreatures 💐

CD17 of cycle #2 for me (TTC #1) so in my 2WW now smile EDD would be 20/12

Pretty sure I ovulated on Tuesday so now it’s just a waiting game smile

lrwe Sat 31-Mar-18 14:12:04

@magicalcreatures yep I’m temping, just started my opk testing, this month I splashed out for digit so that’s been kinda fun so far!

BLM18 Sat 31-Mar-18 14:57:05

I’m in tww currently day 24. Christmas baby isn’t ideal but didn’t want to not try and it’s been 9 months now. Good luck everyone!

strawberrye Sat 31-Mar-18 18:18:04

Hello ladies! Can I join?

I'm 26
TTC #1 since late October 2017, onto cycle #6 CD11
Early miscarriage late Jan 2018

Always thought before I started TTC that I would want to avoid a Christmas baby, but having had a loss I now don't really care when I'd be due as long as I can have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Fingers crossed for us all!

Sorry to hear about your loss @MagicalCreatures

winterwarmers Sat 31-Mar-18 20:29:08

cd 12 i'm taking part in the clearblue trial but if i fall pregnant my due date would be christmas day smile

cycle 4 ttc no 2
think i had a chemical last month as had a faint positive and a very heavy period which was 2 days late

Tobebythesea Sat 31-Mar-18 20:34:55

Hello everyone. TTC #2 after mc in early February. I’m pretty sure I ovulated on Wednesday. I used to want a boy as #1 is a girl and not a Christmas baby. A mc changes everything and I don’t care. I would just like a healthy baby.

We used sperm friendly lube. What is the progesterone cream?

TheTittifersHaveSungTheirSong Sat 31-Mar-18 21:02:26

Sorry to hear about all the MC and chemicals.

@BLM18 @Stephisaur how are you holding up in the TWW atm?
@Cakelaur I love you outlook ‘if it’s not this month there’s always next month’ so true! I just get so impatient.

It took a year first time round to get our LO, I can’t deal with that again!!

Are you all being good with the alcohol and not having any??

Cakelaur Sat 31-Mar-18 22:04:42

@Tobebythesea totally the same as you. Any healthy baby with do at any time.
The cream is serenity natural progesterone cream. Totally self diagnosed. But after my miscarriage and a lot of rocky LP temps I just decided it can't hurt. You rub it on twice a day from ovulation until AF. If I get my bfp this time, I'm going for full private testing as I can't handle a second loss. It totally broke me.

@TheTittifersHaveSungTheirSong It's taken me a LONG time to get to this outlook. A lot of break downs and a lot of misery since my MMC. And now I've removed all deadlines and barriers and just said hey we'll keep trying until we get there and so what if it's not a 2018 baby. All i care is that we get our baby. Plus we did everything we could this month. So I feel good. If we don't catch the egg and get our little bean, then it's really not meant to be!

Cakelaur Sat 31-Mar-18 22:07:21

As for alcohol, I'm not doing great! Haha, too many reason to celebrate. I'm currently 5dpo. Haven't drunk since O. Until tonight I had a glass of wine. I've cut back the coffee. But I find that if I cut back loads I feel shit when AF arrives. So I'll stop once I get my BFP. I try to cut back in the TWW.

Stephisaur Sat 31-Mar-18 22:27:11

@TheTittifersHaveSungTheirSong I’m not doing so bad this month. Last month was killer but this month I’m feeling a bit more chilled out. I guess it’ll be what it’ll be, honestly I’m just happy I seem to have ovulated this month as I’d been on the pill for 10 years so it’s nice that everything still seems to work for the time being 😂

AliceScarlett Sat 31-Mar-18 22:42:58

Hi everyone,

My LMP was the 1st March. No sign of AF and FF predicted it would arrive last Monday. So I'm in serious limbo land 😞

Will test again tomorrow, but CBD as Sainsbury's didn't have any FRERs 😡

BLM18 Sat 31-Mar-18 22:58:45

@TheTittifersHaveSungTheirSong I’m holding out ok. Symptom spotting but not getting many symptoms but every little thing I’m googling! I tell myself this is the month I will remain calm and not turn into a crazy person but then the tww comes around! This month it seems dtd was most perfectly timed so did all we could!
