Hello, plonking myself in yet another bus, thread, whatever.

I am also 26, TTC #1, cycle 4 or 6 depending on whether you believe me or DP who thinks it only counts as trying when I get my "accessories" involved

I am bored of TTC. It's ruining my sex life and life in general.

Waiting2bMum Tue 08-Jan-19 09:20:28

Hi @PaintingOwls I know exactly how you feel after 20 months now😞I am officially out for this month AF the witch come this morning! Can't wait for it to be over for the next month of month obsessing of OPK and HPT😂😂x

ShortandSweet96 Tue 08-Jan-19 22:09:17

I'll jump on here!
Age: 22
Ttc: #1
Trying: technically 5 cycles with 1 cycle break between
Currently: DTD every other day, with a 3 day DTD run on 10th, 11th and 12th as predicted ovulation is on 11th! Then TWW symptom spotting madness!


Waiting2bMum Wed 09-Jan-19 09:36:01

Hi @ShortandSweet96 welcome😊ohhh sounds good, what symptoms are you having? I can't wait for AF to be over and back to trying again, being positive that this next cycle is the one!! X

LondonKez Wed 09-Jan-19 17:57:50

Hello! Also joining!
I'm 32 TTC#1. CD9 of cycle14/6.

Technically cycle 14, although like @PaintingOwls my DP thinks we should count ttc since I started using OPKs/BBT which would make this cycle 6! Either way, it feels like it's been a long time!

ShortandSweet96 Wed 09-Jan-19 18:38:33

@waiting2bmum absolutely no symptoms yet, I dont ovulate until Friday so trying to stay on track and not obsess yet!

Waiting2bMum Thu 10-Jan-19 09:16:33

Welcome @LondonKez That is funny your partner is counting it from when you started using OPK's bless him. I might count kind from then, will make me feel better😊 wishing you lots of luck! Are you in the tww or near ovulation?
@ShortandSweet96 Lots of luck to you two! How do you track ovulation? Do you test a few days before?

Just coming to the end of AF and have the worst headache ever! Hope this cycle is the one for me😊

AF due this Saturday. Tested and BFN so far. I feel different to normal, had a lot of backache and my boobs have had the “let down” feeling for a couple of days like when I was breastfeeding my first.

finleybobinley1 Thu 10-Jan-19 11:44:13

hey @Paintingowls I'm right there with you, Im on cycle 9 which I know isn't as long as some people but I'm finding it hard, each week brings a different sort of dread, the anxiety of ensuring we DTD at the right time, followed by 2ww of trying to ignore the voice in my head that goes "hmm you have a slight ache in your hip and the cats are acting odd maybe this time its happened" followed by crushing disappointment when AF arrives. feel like its taking over my life! cant imagine how you must feel @Waiting2bMum, wishing you all magic minny dust!!

Waiting2bMum Thu 10-Jan-19 12:43:53

Hi @finleybobinley1 @Greysgirl @meepmoop welcome😊 great to have you all here so we can all support each other!
@meepmoop fingers crossed for you this cycle!! Yes grab him as many times as possible😂🙈
@Greysgirl you ain't out yet! What test did you use? Upload a pic see how all of our line eyes are😬
@finleybobinley1 fingers crossed for you too!! Thanks, it has been one of those things you decide to start trying thinking it will happen quickly and it hasn't for us. Even though having two chemical pregnancies or early miscarriages, I do see this as a positive that something has been happening😞

Greysgirl Thu 10-Jan-19 14:40:32

I threw the tests away because I was so frustrated. I’ll be testing again tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed for everyone x

Waiting2bMum Thu 10-Jan-19 14:54:14

@Greysgirl fingers crossed for tomorrow!💐either way upload a pic. Are you using frer?

meepmoop Thu 10-Jan-19 15:37:39

He's decided to not go running now!! Haha

Fingers crossed for you @Greysgirl

Greysgirl Thu 10-Jan-19 15:54:40

@Waiting2bMum yes I used frer this morning. Got a clear blue for tomorrow.

How does everyone cope with the 2WW? It turns me into the grumpiest person. I literally can’t think about anything else. It’s like I can’t switch my mind off to it.

meepmoop Thu 10-Jan-19 16:47:04

I did so many tests last month as I was 10 days late and had convinced myself I was pregnant, it's horrible waiting and hoping.

I've got major cramps today, is that a normal ovulation thing? I've never really paid attention to it before

MrsG7718 Thu 10-Jan-19 17:38:31

Hi all
First time posting so hope you don't mind me joining.

Age: 29
Ttc: #1
Trying: 9 cycles

Currently CD27 and DPO9
The TWW drives me crazy anyone else?

LondonKez Thu 10-Jan-19 17:51:16

Hi ladies,

To all those who have mentioned going crazy in the TWW, YES! However many times I say I'm going to 'relax' or not symptom spot, I still become obsessive, analyse every twinge and just generally become really distracted. Especially at work.

Waiting2bMum on CD9, so I'm headed into my fertile window. We've stepped away from the preseed and OPKs but still temping.

Good luck @Greysgirl. Fingers crossed for you!

I always get cramps before ovulation @meepmoop

Waiting2bMum Thu 10-Jan-19 20:23:01

@meepmoop glad you managed to grab him😂😂and same as I find myself testing ridiculous amounts!
@Greysgirl let us know! Keeping everything crossed for you. I don't cope too well, I find I'm testing quite a few times a day and try so hard to stop myself.
@MrsG7718 of course we don't mind, welcome😊 being honest yes the TWW drives me mad too especially on cycle 20 now, it does get obsessive I know I have spent a fortune in tests. Have you tested yet?
@LondonKez did you not find preseed helped? Iv used twice now and don't know whether it was a coincidence but had 2 BFP after, but they didn't stay😕😞(two different cycles)

MrsG7718 Thu 10-Jan-19 20:33:09

@waiting2bmum was out shopping with DH and have acctually picked a box up, bit unsure of when to test tho.
For the past 8 months I've been tracking myself on my fitbit and AF has arrived on the predicted day every single cycle, however last month we got all excited as I was 5 days late but ended up BFN.
5 days till AF is expected this cycle so I just don't want to test too soon.

Hoping I can hold off until Monday but with tests in the house temptation is high.

Are you ttc your first? Xx

Waiting2bMum Thu 10-Jan-19 20:45:41

@MrsG7718 yeah I understand where you coming from it does get disheartening doesn't it. What test do you use? I tend to always get frer to find out before missed and cheapy ones to check after missed. Yeah trying for our first. I am on my 20th cycle but for a good 8 months I was all over the place with my cycles, as I was on cerezate for 11 years with no periods at all. When I stopped the pill I was so ill for a few months and my periods were like every 40+days. I literally felt like I had withdrawal symptoms, was really bad. So I don't think I can count that as 'trying'. The last 6 months is when iv been using opk and seven seas vitamin and iv fell pregnant twice, just didn't stick x

LondonKez Thu 10-Jan-19 21:08:16

I used it for about 3 cycles @Waiting2bMum after reading so many success stories, but I then also heard that it can also result in sperm that wouldn't normally be strong enough to cteate a viable pregnancy reaching the egg which put me off. I don't know how true that is, so don't know whether or not to try it again! We've been using coconut oil when it's needed instead. There's almost too much information to know what the best thing to use is

MrsG7718 Thu 10-Jan-19 21:15:23

@waiting2bmum sorry to hear about your 2 non sticks FX it will be 3rd time lucky.
Pay days not yet so we just got the asda ones as yes they are not too expensive and I've seen a few people get good early lines.
I had the implant for 6 years with regular periods but then when it was removed my first cycle was 50+ days so we don't count that one.
Me and DH have both said if we get to the year it will definitely be Drs, kits any any old wives tale we get told smile

Waiting2bMum Thu 10-Jan-19 21:16:29

@LondonKez oh really? I haven't heard that before. It's specifically made for not to affect sperm isn't it? Yeah your right there is so many things and lots to read into we never know what is right do we! It is so frustrating. Seems that everyone around us that we know falls pregnant so easily x
