Hi everyone, just making this thread as it seems a few of us will be trying SMEP to TTC! Adding these lovely ladies in from another thread but I hope everyone feels free to join! All welcome smile

@Devgirl31 @fayy123 @NCON @MrsKJW19

Some stats about me:

TTC #1
27 years old, DH is 28 years old
Missed miscarriage in October 2019 at 7+2 weeks
Still in that cycle (no AF yet)
Long and irregular cycles, some anovulatory
Suspected low progesterone/hypothyroidism (I think this based on symptoms, not diagnosed yet!)

Hope we can all provide support for each other in this crazy TTC journey.

Feel free to introduce yourselves smile

@danielasummer my opks are still negative. I apparently ovulate on Monday according to my app.. iv never felt for my cervix 🙈.. my cervical mucus is definitely watery but im not sure if its egg white like yet 🤔 im driving myself insane 😂

fayy123 Sat 07-Dec-19 22:27:56

omg I’m the exact same! My CM is so watery as well! And my OPKS are negative! My app says I’ll ovulate tmmrw ahaha.. how is BD going?

Diamond94 Sun 08-Dec-19 05:49:27

@fayy123 hi 👋🏼 its so frustrating isnt it 🤔... i done an opk last night and was getting slightly darker.. so im CD13 according to my app, we dtd CD 8,11 and 12 so far.. which isnt alot 🙄 im going to try BD tonight and tomorrow 🤞🏼.. how are you getting on?

fayy123 Sun 08-Dec-19 06:55:29

so I’m on CD 14 today and today is apparently the day I’m ovulating.. will do an OPK later on today. But I haven’t got a positive yet either ahaha. I haven’t BD a lot either. I’ve done cD7,8,12 only as well. Will try to BD tonight! Hopefully we’ve caught it this month! X

Good morning@Diamond94 and @fayy123.
If you don't mind me asking this, how long have you ladies been TTC and have you got any children?
Baby dust to you both 🤗

I missed the last dtd day yesterday but had my temps confirm I o'd on the last day of the three in a row days so hoping it doesn't matter too much as the egg only lives for 24 hours after that! Will try again today just in case it's wrong!
Interestingly O'd 3 days after my peak, which will mean there's lots of guys in there waiting but shows it's important to keep going for 3 days! I wouldn't do that if just going off OPKs

LosingtheTTCplot Sun 08-Dec-19 10:51:29

CD8 today for me, going to start DTD tonight (hubby keeps falling asleep and kids keep going to bed late).

Very negative OPK yesterday, so hoping OV will be slightly delayed.

fayy123 Sun 08-Dec-19 11:05:44

Heyy I’m 24 and have been ttc since October, so this is my second cycle. But I feel that I should be DTD a lot more... maybe I would’ve fallen by now😂😂 however I’m a school teacher and always exhausted!! Thank you! How about yourself? X

fayy123 Sun 08-Dec-19 11:18:25

Hopefully you catch it this month! Seems like you’ve done well.. did you follow the SMEP to the T? X

Healthypositivity Sun 08-Dec-19 11:24:49

@fayy123 lol it's nice to be DTD, you might just end up with a sore vagi and a baby, so keep at it grin

Healthypositivity Sun 08-Dec-19 11:27:29

@fayy123 I am fine, am not really TTC but also not preventing. Been having some what you would call 'symptoms of pregnancy' but I am calling it symptoms of AF coming.
Haven't had a period since I came of the depo in June and didn't have periods while I was on it.

fayy123 Sun 08-Dec-19 11:31:28

Oh sorry forgot to mention, no I don’t have any children. Exciting times, you might be pregnant? Have you taken a test yet? and do you have any children x

Healthypositivity Sun 08-Dec-19 11:56:41

@fayy123 wow exciting time for you TTC for your first.
I have two boys 14 and a almost 3 year old.
I may or may not take a test tomorrow. Cba

fayy123 Sun 08-Dec-19 12:13:27

Ahaha can be exciting and scary

Diamond94 Sun 08-Dec-19 19:46:39

@Healthypositivity hi 👋🏼 this is just my first cycle ttc after stopping the pill end of october. No iv no other children.. what about you?

Diamond94 Sun 08-Dec-19 19:49:02

@fayy123 we are very similar. Im 25! Stopped pill im october.. and you are one day in front cycle wise! Finger crossed for us both this month 🤞🏼

Diamond94 Sun 08-Dec-19 19:49:43

Iv just been to the toilet and theres pink staining.. hmm 🤔

Healthypositivity Sun 08-Dec-19 20:15:09

@Diamond94 brilliant. Sounds like it maybe implantation bleed. Fingers crossed for you.
I have two boys 14 and a almost 3 year old.

Diamond94 Sun 08-Dec-19 20:53:38

@Healthypositivity hopefully 🤞🏼 due to my pill im not 100% if i will ovulate when im supposed go.. i done a test there and can see THEE faintest line 🤔

fayy123 Sun 08-Dec-19 21:04:31

Did you get a positive OPK yet? I don’t think I’ve caught this month I’m on CD13 and only BD 7,8,12 so far 🙈 no positive OPK yet x

Healthypositivity Sun 08-Dec-19 21:06:54

Wow that's great. Let see a pic. @diamondsmile

Diamond94 Sun 08-Dec-19 21:11:31

@fayy123 i got a dark opk on the 30th but thought it wasn't positive as my app says tomorrow is ovulation..
im definitely not getting my hopes up.. you guys might not even be able to see a line 🙈

Lucy5546 Sun 08-Dec-19 21:17:03

Hey ladies mind if i join.? Cycle 3 off the pill. Range between 28 and 30 days. Last two months i have stressed my self out so taking a more relaxed approach this month. Trying SMEP. Should be no problem for us as we regularly DTD anyway so i just stocked up on some fancy lingerie haha. Cycle day 9 here and i already feel so much more relaxed not tracking anythin this month

Diamond94 Sun 08-Dec-19 21:25:21

@Lucy5546 hey 👋🏼 yeah definitely a good idea just being chilled! Do you have any children already?

Healthypositivity Sun 08-Dec-19 21:27:02

@Diamond94 🙈 can't see a line ATM. Do another tomorrow morning.
@lucy5546 good with TTC. Baby dust to you
