Hey do you mind if I join? Cycle 2 ttc baby 1!

Lmac2018 Fri 21-Feb-20 17:35:07

First month TTC, 6dpo and not having much happening except the odd weird cramp kinda similar to what i get when I ovukate. I take random ovulation tests to check if I ovukate twice and I haven't. I'm taking folic acid every day, and we DTD Friday, Sunday and Monday and I ovukated on the Saturday x

Lmac2018 Fri 21-Feb-20 17:35:40

Also first baby x

Thanks @Anny27 for the tag

@whatsthecraic91 on it nearly a month now I think. Just got a text from a friend asking am I possibly pregnant because it sounds like I am. Awk they all mean no harm but Christ when will people learn to be careful with their questioning 😬
AF hopefully over in the next day or two. Had an awful time of it with cramps and this bug I've caught!

I knew I would forget to tag someone hahaa

@timswifey so sorry, that is absolutely heartbreaking. Hope you are looking after yourself xxx

@FarmerWantsABaby awk well hopefully you get a letter in the next couple of weeks for a date then! I wonder why the waiting list at Antrim is so long 🤔 I know people mean no harm but it's still annoying ☹️ AF combined with your bug makes it twice as bad, hope you're better soon 😊

Welcome @Lmac2018 & @Eatsleepbakerepeat 👋🏼

I m going to test again in the morning with a different brand but I think I may have a BFP line, it came up within a couple of minutes so I really hope it's true.

whatsthecraic91 Fri 21-Feb-20 18:24:49

@1990shopefulftm OMG!!!!! That is positive without a doubt! Congratulations 🥳 so happy for you x

Kiza Fri 21-Feb-20 18:31:11

@timswifey I'm so so sorry for your loss, it's heartbreaking and you're really don't know what to do with yourself as you become so attached to the growth inside of you; even so early on.
Take it easy, take time for yourself and allow yourself to grieve and do what feels right for you. Sending hugs 💜

@1990shopefulftm that's a definite positive- congrats! Feels like it's been a long time since we had another BFP on this thread x

Anny27 Fri 21-Feb-20 18:37:19

@1990shopefulftm wow definitley positive congratulations 🥳🥳💗💗 how many dpo are you? Xx

Eatsleepbakerepeat Fri 21-Feb-20 18:38:54

Feel like I'm in no man's land atm af due today not arrived rhr higher than normally is when af comes but I just feel like its coming
I've had some really weird cramping and twinges felt like someone tugging behind my belly button as well as shooting pains today ice felt so sick and so tired not wanted to eat, not sure if boobs seem bigger and veins more obvious or if I'm just looking for it
Did a test yesterday and bfn so do feel like I'm just waiting, had 2 dreams this month so vivid of getting a bfp and it felt so good but husband has also said he has a good feeling about this month but since my bfn yesterday just waiting for the witch.

Please can i join too? smile
TTC 1st baby, came off the pill last April but period didn’t turn up til December and still irregular - last cycle was 47 days.
Currently on day 7 and trying SMEP this month although whether i’ll keep up DTD every other day if it’s another cycle is another story haha!
Sending baby dust to you all 💞

timswifey Fri 21-Feb-20 19:05:00

Thanks @whatsthecraic91 - been alone for past few hours while Hubby has been at work but he's back now and we're making dinner. No idea how to navigate getting through this together, we're both so upset.

Thank you @Kiza 🥰

Welcome to @Lmac2018 and @Eatsleepbakerepeat xx

Lozzlepop Fri 21-Feb-20 19:14:43

@timswifey I am absolutely gutted for you both 💔 I know how hard a time this is, be kind to yourself and each other and let yourself feel however you want. Always here if you need a chat. Sending lots of love your way xx

Lozzlepop Fri 21-Feb-20 19:18:14

@Anny27 thanks for setting up the new thread!

@whatsthecraic91 I made dinner and threw a wash on, now it’s hair scraped up, pjs on with my fav movie- bliss!

@1990shopefulftm ahhhh congratulations that’s a fantastic line for an IC

@Lmac2018 hello and welcome- I am also an L Mac if that’s where you’ve taken your name from 😂

@Eatsleepbakerepeat @hollywhooo hello and welcome to the group ☺️

Lmac2018 Fri 21-Feb-20 20:58:16

I'll be a 7dpo tomorrow and can't shake these cramps I'm having, no proper symptoms yet and I don't expect there to be. Bit confused when my period is as I have 3 apps and all 3 say something different, one says 1st next month, 3rd next month another 28th this month so 🤷‍♀️

1990shopefulftm Fri 21-Feb-20 23:36:50

@Anny27 I m 13 dpo I think smile

1990shopefulftm Fri 21-Feb-20 23:42:05

@Kiza @Lozzlepop @whatsthecraic91 thank you

Anny27 Sat 22-Feb-20 08:53:01

5dpo this morning and nothing to report yet haha!

@Kiza maybe I secretly like the symptom spotting then 🤣🤣 so frustrating how your body has geared up to O twice! Any more like with the OPKs?

@Lozzlepop one thing I dont miss from wedding planning is the admin and the money spent haha.

@whatsthecraic91 have you tested??? 🤞🤞🤞

@1990shopefulftm has it sunk in yet?

@Lmac2018 I dont trust my apps, my period is usually due either on 14dpo or 15dpo so I use that!

Welcome @Eatsleepbakerepeat and @hollywhooo are you tracking ovulation or seeing how things go?

1990shopefulftm Sat 22-Feb-20 08:56:01

@Anny27 no not really, I ve done two more cheapies to be sure and can't believe it.
