Me 🙋 I'm due on Feb 15th. Took 18 months to conceive with my 1st and am now on the 3rd month of trying to conceive a 2nd. Fingers crossed for us both 🤞🤞

Me! Due the 15th. On 4th month ttc #2 but cycles have been unsettled since coming off the pill in October. Number one was a surprise so this is all new to me.

Me!! Af due on sat. On night shift now and I have awful pains around my tummy and sides and down my thighs.. like indigestion so I’ve a feeling I’m out this month sad trying to conceive second. So disheartened as I got pregnant with my first by accident when my condom broke once. Like that one time and now when I’m trying to have number 2 I can’t seem to get pregnant even tho I’m basically having sex every day 😂😂 second month of trying

Lets keep each other updated!

Babydancing2020 Thu 06-Feb-20 23:27:29

Its so crazy innit,its always like that tho when u want something its not happening when u dont want it hell it happens in a sec... im having period cramps like crazy so i already gave up hope for this month but u never knoww....fingers crossedd

Babydancing2020 Thu 06-Feb-20 23:30:07

And you know,whenever you feel like you wanna talk about it I'd be happy to listen/read. Im quite in a place that I feel like i cant really talk to someone about it cuz I dont wanna burden them with my insecurities or dissapointments. Dont want anyone to feel like that here x

Currently CD25, 11DPO, cycles have been a little irregular so not entirely sure when AF is due but last month cycle was just 23 days.
Going to wait til Saturday to test if she’s not arrived. I’ve been nauseous for a few days now though, don’t know if it’s just me being anxious or an early sign, fingers crossed 🤞🏻

I know What u mean not having anyone to talk to really about it. My other half is very involved but I don’t want me to see how upset I actually am when each month AF comes. Hopefully this month is our month !! What all are you doing to help u along. So far I’m tracking ovulation, sex every day over fertile week and few days after and prenatal vits for both me and my other half

Hello! I'm on the bench too. Due AF on the 13th. Also fell pregnant on first cycle with my first and also trying for a second since last year! I'm tracking using an app. I was convinced that last month was going to be our month and drove myself crazy symptom spotting. Fingers crossed for everyone in February. x

Babydancing2020 Fri 07-Feb-20 12:01:45

Hi there! Baby dust to u.
Same with me last month i was so convinced i was late for my period like 6 daysss!! But unfortunately i had my period.. fingers crossed for this month!!!

courtney229 Fri 07-Feb-20 13:16:01

Hello, I have been ttc for a year and 2months now, this month although it may all just be a coincidence iv had the most awful cold, I have thrown up and feeling nauseous most morning and sometimes during the day that comes and goes, I haven't been eating very much and this morning I went to the toilet to see some egg white looking CM which is very unusual for me considering AF is 3 days away. I did a test at 11DPO and it was a BFN but I know this was proberly too early to test anyway.
Just looking for some insight as to wether anyone has experienced this and got a BFPsmile

Sunshine1606 Sun 09-Feb-20 09:29:37

Morning! How is everyone today? @Babydancing2020 arghh it's so disheartening when AF sneaks up on us!

@courtney229 how are you getting on with the symptoms?

I'm really resisting the urge to test! It is my OHs birthday tomorrow and I can't help feeling it would be the best birthday present if we get a bfp. Realistically though, it's just too early at 9dpo. Need to keep busy but stuck in doors as the weather is so rubbish! What is everyone up to? Distraction tips are very much needed! x

Babydancing2020 Sun 09-Feb-20 15:23:13

@Sunshine1606 I know rightt ughh 4 days left until my period really trying to not test but ive got these internet cheapiesss and I cant resist ugh!!
Cant really help you with the urge as Im worse believe me hahaaa.
Btw what do you do for conceiving except the deed. Any dietss?? Or something else.
I just started taking pregnacare multi vitamins for conception and maca powder every morning. Ive read a lot of goodd things about maca powder u might wanna consider taking it.

courtney229 Sun 09-Feb-20 15:32:20

so AF is now due tomorrow my boobs a only a little more sore but only slightly, my cold seems to be clearing but I still feel exhausted and having the odd moments of feeling sick or like I'm going to be sick. Checked cervix today too and it felt not as firm as usual but not really soft and it has been both low and high already today.
Usually AF appears in the morning so will keep you updated with that! Really hoping this is the monthconfusedgrin

butterflylove81 Sun 09-Feb-20 15:34:27

Hey I'm due to get my period the 15th was going to take a frer tomorrow it's probs too early I hadn't thought this month with ttc that I'd be getting my period or pregnancy result on Valentine's Day! Bloody February

Babydancing2020 Sun 09-Feb-20 15:45:33

@courtney229 that sounds promising!! How amazing would it be if u finally see that second line on the darn test ay!

courtney229 Sun 09-Feb-20 15:49:05

It would be beyond amazing, this whole process seems to have been going on forever with the months just passing by and everyone around me falling pregnant or giving birth!!

Babydancing2020 Sun 09-Feb-20 15:58:30

@courtney229 same here...everyone seems to get pregnant(by accident) taking birth control and everything and thn theres me trying like crazy for 6 months and still nothing..kinda makes me sad every month is such a big dissapointment i dont want it to control my moodd but it kinda does..
And thn after the deed u feel like this cud be it like u feel so good and thn the closer u get to ur period the more i think nah i dont think its this month xD

Sunshine1606 Sun 09-Feb-20 19:18:38

@Babydancing2020 I'm not on a special diet. But now I'm going to look up fertile diets obsessively on Google haha. We literally DTD every day for when my app said I was in the fertile period and then one day extra for good measure! I've never heard of maca powder before! What is it and where did you get it from? I also have internet cheapies at the ready! (And a lot of them..) when do you think you'll test?

@courtney229 it does all sound promising! TTC drags soooo much and watching everyone else you feel happy for them but also so disappointed that is not happening for you. I have everything crossed for us and sprinkling baby dust everywhere.

Hey @butterflylove81 hopefully it will be a valentine's Day to remember. Let us know how you get on! X

user1469567046 Sun 09-Feb-20 19:53:36

I love the fact that we're all due af around the same time so are all exactly in the same boat. It's so hard to resist the urge to test. But trying to be strong and hold out until the weekend.

Babydancing2020 Sun 09-Feb-20 20:06:51

@Sunshine1606 you can find a lot on youtube about maca powder if you cant find it get back to me and I'll write everything down for you. Im not really on a special diet i just started eating more healthy.
Btw i couldnt resist the urge and I tested 2 times with both bfn result -_-

Babydancing2020 Sun 09-Feb-20 20:09:02

@user1469567046 Innit!! So nice to know that were not going thru this "alone".

courtney229 Sun 09-Feb-20 20:20:17

I'm the same, I want to be happy for them but I just can't be, my partners mother wants a grandchild too and she keeps saying we've got a year because she wants it before 35 jokingly and I just think to myself we've been trying to give you one for over a year now but it doesn't seem to be happening, Iv got a feeling my period is coming tomorrow but I'm still clinging on to the slightest bit of hope that it doesn't which I do every month and it gets me every time, here's to this being it
