Hey, so was a little flakey on August bus because this is so hard, but I like the support and folk with bfps give me hope.

Anyway, I am on cycle is seven now, period due first or second September. But will probably poas end of Aug because I turn into a sucker for punishment the week before.

How are you all doing? Will be happy and sorry to see familiar names back.

I also will disappear for days at a time, which doesn't mean I'm ignoring folk, but finding it too intense.

Love and luck

Would love to hear about this month's lovely distractions

Hi @blossomingflower94

Great to meet you and really hope you only spend a few months here, if that.

Blossomingflower94 Sun 11-Aug-19 11:52:44

Thanks @sleepyhead11

How are you feeling?

Sleepyhead11 Sun 11-Aug-19 12:18:50

Kind of optimistic, I think because I have two throws in September due to how cycle works, if that makes sense? Period due at beginning and end of month. I've often felt jealous of folk who have two throws a month although I know that makes no sense and is all part of the crazy magical thinking that goes with TTC.

How're you feeling? X

Blossomingflower94 Sun 11-Aug-19 13:00:15

@sleepyhead11 that's good, I'm sure this will be the month. Positive vibes always help!

I'm feeling good, it's nice talking to my DP about it all and getting excited. Just want it to be ovulation time already 🤭🤣

catsandkid Sun 11-Aug-19 13:59:50

Joining you all! I'm on CD5 atm and it'll be our first month properly trying for #2. Due to O around 20-23rd (my apps all say different days) and will be using clear blue fertility monitor to track O.

Hope I can join? I'm ttc baby 2. Came off mini pill a week ago no AF yet but hoping to start trying September.

Lu1u Sun 11-Aug-19 16:56:00

Joining too if that's ok? TTC baby number 2, I am on CD11 and ovulation predicted on Thursday 15th so need to get cracking. Feeling nervous and excited already! Good luck to the rest of you for this month 🤞

Sleepyhead11 Sun 11-Aug-19 18:40:34

Hi all, good to meet new folk. Thank you for your good vibes blossom. I am hoping so hard for a September positive x

Blossomingflower94 Sun 11-Aug-19 18:50:31

Hi @catsandkid @lu1u and @user14715016121

Welcome to the thread ☺️ lovely to have you all here. Hope it's a positive month for you all!

Raizelrea Sun 11-Aug-19 19:13:53

Hi ladies, very new to all this (and new to the forums as well)! I have been lurking around for a while as I've been ready for a while but only just really getting started with TTC now so I thought I would join in! Nice to meet you all!

We just got married in June and had stopped using protection since, however have not really been active during the fertile window at all - I came back from our honeymoon with honeymoon cystis so DTD was the last thing on my mind that week, and then we completely skipped the second cycle fertile window due to illness. OH says we're not very good at this haha!

Cycle 1(ish)
CD 4
AF 5 September
Age 31

@Blossomingflower94 Looks like our AF/BFP is due at the same time!

MrsSkr Sun 11-Aug-19 19:20:36

Hi can I join too, tbh I'm likely to be Oct before I'm officially properly trying but I'd like to prepare by speaking to like minded folks and seeing some positive results hopefully! I'm actually only getting my mirena removed tomorrow to ttc #2 so hoping to have the month to have a period and get on track. Still looking forward to figuring out when I'm ovulating etc even if we arnt actually trying in Sept, hope it's ok to join xx

Blossomingflower94 Sun 11-Aug-19 19:24:21

Hello @Raizelrea Welcome to the club! Im in a very similar boat to you too. My first cycle TTC and AF is also due the 5th Sept! smile Lets hope for success!

@MrsSkr Welcome :D Always best to get onto a thread early or it all gets a bit confusing grin

I'm waiting for my OPK tests to arrive and then following the SMEP this month. If they don't arrive we will just DTD every other day until AF ... Sounds tiring just thinking about it!!

catsandkid Sun 11-Aug-19 19:45:57

@Blossomingflower94 im also planning to give SMEP a go! There's a good SMEP thread on here I'm on ('SMEP #2' it's called) if you wanna join!

Raizelrea Sun 11-Aug-19 19:51:17

@MrsSkr Welcome! I'm sure the more the merrier smile

@Blossomingflower94 Thank you! Yes it does sound similar, exciting times, hopefully! I'm waiting with OPKs for now since I only got OH on board with the whole baby idea recently and don't want him to get intimidated by it, will see if I change my mind!

@Sleepyhead11 I get what you mean about the two periods in a month, definitely would subconsciously make you feel like your odds are better, and being in a hopeful mindset can't hurt things!

Blossomingflower94 Sun 11-Aug-19 20:22:58

@Raizelrea I'm going to try and keep the OPK's to myself. My partner is only just on board too and I don't want to ruin the romance by talking to him about POAS grin

@catsandkid Yes, I have popped a message on that forum. It's one of the less intimidating ones!

Sleepyhead11 Sun 11-Aug-19 20:29:29

Hi @raizelrea, thank you for getting it and congratulations on the wedding. Hope you get a proper shot this mpntg. TTC can be so tough. Would've lovely if you and blossom both got bfps on the fifth.

We are going for everyday from now for the next eight days, because it's cycle seven so getting desperate.

I might be a bit on and off this thread, as sometimes need to step away, but soglad you're all here x

Raizelrea Sun 11-Aug-19 20:51:56

@Blossomingflower94 Haha yes that sounds like a good strategy! I'd probably do the same if I do end up using them.

@Sleepyhead11 Thank you very much, that's very sweet of you! I have all fingers crossed for you, hopefully this cycle is the one for you (7 is a lucky number after all!). Don't worry about checking in all the time, I can imagine you have to take a step back at times to make sure you don't go crazy!

GingerSunday Sun 11-Aug-19 21:20:36

Hey ladies, hoping I can join too! Just starting TTC this month and been lurking on this board for the past few weeks learning a LOT grin!!

Age 30 (very nearly 31!)
TTC #1
Cycle 1
CD 11
AF due August 30th - September 1st as cycles range 29-31 days!

Hoping this is a lucky month for everyone smile

Blossomingflower94 Sun 11-Aug-19 21:36:20

@gingersunday hello and welcome. Fingers crossed this is a good month for you 😃

Mimi91 Mon 12-Aug-19 07:39:57

Hi ladies

I'm TTC #1, cycle 9 🤞🏼

My cycles are a bit all over the place and missed ovulation last month. Looks like it was during that heatwave (the only 4 days of the whole month we didn't DTD 🙄).

May start temping again as my apps were completely out and I was OPKing waaaay too late.

Definitely the only married person I know without a child/pregnant 🙈 trying to keep a level head, but this feels like it's taking forever.

Fingers crossed everyone!

Blossomingflower94 Mon 12-Aug-19 09:47:18

@mimi91 I'm sure it'll happen! I know it's frustrating, everywhere I look people are pregnant at the moment and although I'm happy for them I'm also super jealous!

GingerSunday Mon 12-Aug-19 10:10:19

@Mimi91 when you say you were OPKing too late, when should you start? My Flo app says I should ovulate on the 15th but never tracked it before and I bought some cheapie OPKs but no idea when to start taking them!

Thistle23 Mon 12-Aug-19 10:21:04


Stopped taking the pill August 1st and now waiting to see what happens . Also get married this Fridaysmile
