Hey thanks for this πŸ‘

claireb707 Thu 26-Sep-19 08:26:39

@Makeafamily19 in here

Gigi318 Thu 26-Sep-19 08:28:49

Woohoo, here we go, take 2!

@Hewie30 morning chick! Yay to no AF and cramps could be PG or AF. I usually come on at like 3am but mine arrived at 11pm-12am πŸ™„ wonderful! Hope she stays away chick!!!

Gigi318 Thu 26-Sep-19 08:30:16

@Makeafamily19 yay for the FW. Excited for you. Wish I was at mine but have 10 days or so to wait 🀣

Makeafamily19 Thu 26-Sep-19 08:30:38

Ah cool thank you @Katie1109 😁

@Katie1109 Thank you for making the new thread! Sorry to hear your test was negative, the good thing is you can now put the last cycle behind you and focus on yoir fertile window rather than the continued limbo!

@Claireb707 What makes you think it will be negative? But you're right if it is you can let loose on your holiday, win - win!

claireb707 Thu 26-Sep-19 08:34:10

I just have that gut feeling, my age is against us, and the gods never seem to be kind to me so thinking negatively and then if it is a positive I can feel happy. That way I'm less disappointed (odd kind of logic works in my head though whether it works in reality is another matter)

Makeafamily19 Thu 26-Sep-19 08:40:29

@claireb707 haha that's the logic I have as well but I really want to try and be more positive this cycle. I tell myself it's definitely going to be a BFN but the secret part of my brain is like oooooh what if 🀣

Raizelrea Thu 26-Sep-19 08:40:48

@claireb707 Aww don't say that! I totally understand not wanting to set yourself up for disappointment of course, though I am into the law of attraction (I know, hippie stuff) so I do think your mindset can influence things to a degree. Either way rooting for you, bring on tomorrow - and bring on your holiday 🌞

claireb707 Thu 26-Sep-19 08:56:07

Oh yes there is definitely lot of what ifs. I keep thinking it would also be amazing to be able to give my parents a fab birthday / Christmas present this year but I'm trying to be realistic to save my sanity

Gigi318 Thu 26-Sep-19 09:30:55

@Raizelrea I agree with you, a positive mindset does really work. I've noticed such a difference to my life by just changing my mindset!

@claireb707 excited for you either way chick!

Can I join smile

So lovely speaking to other people in the same boat!


Gigi318 Thu 26-Sep-19 11:53:00

@ceebee21 welcome. What CD are you? What cycle? So exciting looking to make our first babas πŸ₯°πŸ˜

ceebee21 Thu 26-Sep-19 12:44:09

@Gigi318 Well, at the moment I am in limbo.

I had implant removed in July, and fell pregnant straight away, within a couple of weeks.

Went for a scan at 9.5 weeks to be told either not developing properly, or dates are out (by about 3/4 weeks)... went back last week and not much change, still no heartbeat... going back tomorrow to be confirmed MMC, however I have started bleeding already.

I just want it all to be over and get back TTC properly, which I hope to do ASAP.


Gigi318 Thu 26-Sep-19 12:52:14

@ceebee21 oh sweetie, I am so so sorry to hear this. But you sound like you're doing well mentally and that you're in the best possible place. Absolutely, you can make this happen. And you know you'll be fertile after the MC so you've got a good chance at making a go of it. I hope you're doing well xx

claireb707 Thu 26-Sep-19 15:46:09

Oh @ceebee21 massive hugs lovely, I can only imagine how you are feeling 😒

Which test is the best one to try tomorrow? I have wandfo amazon cheapys and these

claireb707 Thu 26-Sep-19 15:46:33

Or all of the above πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Gigi318 Thu 26-Sep-19 15:51:24

@claireb707 hehehe I'm not sure. What does everyone think??

Makeafamily19 Thu 26-Sep-19 16:16:43

@claireb707 FRER are better but more expensive. If you really want to be sure I'd use a FRER. Or just a cheapie first then a FRER to confirm next day lol. Probably what I'd do.

Makeafamily19 Thu 26-Sep-19 16:19:37

Oh actually I don't think that's an early response one is it? Just normal first response. So not as sensitive. Avoid the clear blue as I've seen lots of ambiguous results on the threads with those. Blue dye isn't great and can run/ evap a lot.

Clearly I've been reading too much on these threads πŸ˜‚

Gigi318 Thu 26-Sep-19 16:32:36

@Makeafamily19 I agree, I wasn't sure out of those. I'd go FRER but for tomorrow maybe go with cheapie @claireb707 and you can always order a FRER? Not long to go now πŸ™ŒπŸ»

claireb707 Thu 26-Sep-19 16:50:54

Oh are they not the frer ones? Oh poop

claireb707 Thu 26-Sep-19 16:57:43

FRER ones ordered arriving tomorrow, hadn't realised the ones I had weren't the frer ones

Hewie30 Thu 26-Sep-19 16:58:19

@gigi318 Thankfully she has! Hopefully she'll stay away these next few days too 🀞. Oh really? What a sneaky AF!! That happened to me last month I came on at 10pm and was like what the?! How are you today?
