Thought I would start the May bus as looks like not been successful this month.
Cycle 2

Natt99 Fri 10-Apr-20 18:04:12

On board! Month 2 but #1

HopefulRobertsons66202 Fri 10-Apr-20 18:21:13

I'll join! Started AF today so May here we come!grin

popcorndiva Fri 10-Apr-20 18:27:56

Fab welcome @Natt99 and @HopefulRobertsons66202

Skyla01 Fri 10-Apr-20 18:36:00

I'll hop on! Pretty sure AF will be in full flow soon. Ttc number 1, lost count of the cycle number. Challenge for this cycle is how to stay chilled out despite having no life distractions!

popcorndiva Fri 10-Apr-20 18:47:01

Oh I know @Skyla01. I have locked all tests away as I was getting addicted. I want to actually spot my peak ovulation as only got high results last month so think I missed it hence bfn

HopefulRobertsons66202 Fri 10-Apr-20 18:58:16

I had a chemical pregnancy this month very early on. Got a faint positive for about two days then started spotting and got a negative. Then AF came today 😭 May will be my second time trying!

MoonW Fri 10-Apr-20 19:17:39

Thanks for starting the May bus @popcorndiva 😄

Popping over from the April bus following AF coming early at the start of this month. Now on CD9 and AF due 30th April (apparently), so would be testing 30th April/1st May 🤞

Hi! Hopping over from the April bus as well. No AF yet but due tomorrow and have been spotting for the last couple of days so I will be out! I'll be testing mid May, 4th cycle for us.

popcorndiva Fri 10-Apr-20 19:26:13

Is anyone planning on doing anything different this month?

MoonW Fri 10-Apr-20 19:47:41

@popcorndiva I’ve started temping this cycle which I’ve never done before. Hoping it gives me more of an idea of what’s going on with my cycles 🙂

We are also going to try to follow the SMEP plan properly, whereas last cycle we BD every other day and then as much as possible in the fertile window.

popcorndiva Fri 10-Apr-20 19:53:09

I have ordered some preseed as well as testing more often when i first get a peak opk

myhappystreak Fri 10-Apr-20 20:09:52

Hello!! CD1 for me, going to be following SMEP plan this month.

I have an 11 year old already and this is cycle number 2 for us.

HopefulRobertsons66202 Fri 10-Apr-20 20:32:06

I bought Preseed. Never used it before. Anyone use it?

Sdoo4 Fri 10-Apr-20 20:42:49

AF arrived for me today too so onto cycle number 4 for us. I tried the clear blue 2 most fertile day’s opk this month. It’s the first opk I’ve used so was good to see when I got a positive but is there better tests to use? Also, what is preseed?
Anything else we can do to increase our chances?

Skyla01 Fri 10-Apr-20 20:49:42

I'm not going to track at all! Just lots of DTD and hope for the best!

popcorndiva Fri 10-Apr-20 20:59:43

Preseed is a lubricant that you insert. It's meant to help the sperm move. Mine doesn't get delivered till next Thursday.

Minster2012 Fri 10-Apr-20 21:11:05

Hi can I join please?
Waiting for AF to show up so we can start TTC though we have been TTC in theory but no idea if I’ve ovulated or anything after a MC in March after IVF so this will be brand new to me though prior to IVF (which was for medical reasons as I was on chemo for 10 years) we did TTC for 8 months prior but only ever had one AF 😬

Minster2012 Fri 10-Apr-20 21:13:42

As something to do in lockdown whilst IVF clinics are closed I’ve ordered preseed, OPKs & tests hoping we can save ourselves more serious money on Private IVF again (we have a 20 month old DS born using my best mate as surrogate host like the nest on tv currently 😂)

Rhubarbe Fri 10-Apr-20 21:31:16

Joining the May bus!
TTC # 1
First proper cycle since a MMC, so been trying since a year ago 🙁

Fisher1008 Fri 10-Apr-20 21:47:30

Joining the May bus, CD1 for me, probably be testing around 14th May.

This is our second month of trying! Wishing luck to everyone 🤞🏻

Hi ladies 🤗 jumping on the May bus with you all. I've been in a few other buses but no success so far.

So a little about me... I'm 30yrs old. DH & I got married in October 2019 (just before our 10yr anniversary) and decided to start TTC for #1 in December 2019 and we caught straight away with no effort other than let's stop using contraception however it ended very quickly in a chemical at 5 weeks. Since then we've not managed to conceive again and we're currently on cycle 4 & hoping for the best for this month.

I have longer cycles and currently on CD 14, ovulation predicted next week-ish. I've been using opk the last few cycles along with tracking cervical mucus changes... But essentially trying to stay as chilled about this as possible which ain't easy but trying.

What's everone else's story? Where are you in your journeys? I love to hear everyone's experiences... Sorry if I've over shared Xx

Hello 👋🏻😘 I can recognise some.names from the previous busses 🤗
I am 36, have two kids from a previous marriage and have been TTC with my husband for 4 months now.
I am totally desperate.
I have been taking pregnacare conception (to start with but it made my cycles so long) then I switched to proceive max. I used Conceive plus lube. I check my ovulation with opks and I usually ovulate around 10/12cd. Today my AF is due, had a BFN this morning. I am feeling pretty shit about it all by now 😔
Hope we all get lucky this month ❤️🎀
