I'm out for March, so I'm cracking on with April now!

Me and DH are 29/30
TTC #1
Technically cycle 3 - first cycle over Christmas, then had a break for two cycles... but last month I admit now that we didn't time BD very well so I don't know if we can count that. 🤔
AF/ BFP: 12th April

This month I'm looking forward to: taking some new vitamins to try to lengthen my LP and we're doing some garden redesign 😊

4th cycle for us. Im nearly 31 DH is 33. Im CD 16. Due on the 6th April. Been trying to dtd everyday. Had a smiley today so hoping it works this cycle!

Hello smile never joined a bus before!

2nd cycle but first was a bit half hearted as we were more interested in having a lovely weekend away in Paris grin

CD14, period due 7-8th April. I'm nearly 30, he's nearly 43. No kids for either of us yet! Been a bit forgetful on the vitamins lately so that's my goal for this week. Am also learning to drive at the mo which is coming in handy as a distraction from overthinking and staring at my period tracker...

We are both taking pregnacare pre conception. Who knows if they actually help 🤷‍♀️

Hello all! This is all a bit new for me, starting this week!

TTC #2
Cycle 1
Me: 32 DH: 33

Am on 5mg folic acid from the doctor plus pregnacare tablets. Think I'm due to O in a week or so so will be the first attempt, gulp! Got some OPKs as I'm so irregular and used them last time. Also some pregnancy tests.

Heya All,
I’m 29 (nearly 30!) & DP is 33.
I came off the pill on 7th March but no withdrawal bleed or AF so far, haven’t managed to DTD as much as we would like this month as DP has been sick, poor man, so pretty sure I’m on the April bus and will take it as cycle 1 of active trying!

thosethreewords Sat 23-Mar-19 21:26:46

@mrsawhite sounds all good so far! Will keep my fingers crossed for you! Have you been testing early on your previous cycles?

@AuntieJuice learning to drive definitely is a distraction! I used to hate driving during my lessons and would think of any excuse not to do them, but now absolutely love driving (even though it took 3 attempts to pass!) also, I love Paris. As cliche as it sounds, it really is one of my favourite cities. I've been countless times and still love to go back

@DieCryHate I think we will be O at roughly the same time by all estimations then! I'm due next Sunday!

@MountAbora hope your DH is better soon!

Hi all, think I'll join this time!

TTC#1, on cycle 6. Currently on CD10 but have no idea when I'm due to ovulate or when AF is due as my cycles seem to have gone rather peculiar over the last 3 cycles and have got progressively longer each time.

Am using OPKs and tracking BBT for the first time this month so we'll see if that helps me get some idea of what is going on.

Good luck to everyone!

@thosethreewords that's exciting! Are you a POASaholic? I was terrible for it when trying for my first and I can't see me being any different this time around! If you are we will probably be testing at the same time.

thosethreewords Sun 24-Mar-19 07:57:01

@DieCryHate I managed to go til 11DPO this time, but was then really disappointed when it was negative because I had so many PMS symptoms, I was sure I was pregnant! Not decided how to play it this time. I have cheap one step tests (which I'm sure aren't reliable) that I will use prior to my period just to get it out of my system! And then "proper tests" after that if I 🤞 miss it

DieCryHate Sun 24-Mar-19 08:11:24

@thosethreewords sounds an excellent plan, I hope to do the same. That's annoying about last month with your symptoms, fingers crossed for this cycle.

Shortandsweet96 Sun 24-Mar-19 10:50:43

May I?

I'm nearly 23
Ttc #1
Cycle 7
CD28 - I have a 32 day cycle. AF due next Friday but already onto the April bus as been so poorly almost the entire month that I haven't managed to dtd in my fertile week so counting myself out of March.

Big O date is 15th April so hoping this is my month! grin

AuntieJuice Sun 24-Mar-19 10:56:03

@thosethreewords yeah we absolutely love Paris - we'd both been loads of times but never together, despite being together 7 years! Splashed out on a hotel and just spent the weekend wandering, drinking and eating like champions.

Anyone up to anything fun today?

mrsawhite Sun 24-Mar-19 11:14:49

@thosethreewords I've never had to test before AF has always arrived!

thosethreewords Sun 24-Mar-19 19:01:19

@Shortandsweet96 hope you feel better now, welcome on the bus!

@AuntieJuice that sounds like a great weekend! We've had a day of house-y stuff, but I love doing that because we are rarely around for a whole weekend. It was bliss! Now just about to settle down with some tea and ready "what to expect when you are expecting"... I know it's premature, but I love reading and I feel it might stop me going mad on MN all the time!

@mrsawhite hopefully this month you will need some tests 🤞😉

mrsawhite Sun 24-Mar-19 19:03:30

Hoping so too! We've made a real effort to dtd as often as we can this month. Roll on the next 2 weeks!
