Thought I’d make a thread for anyone who may be having a visit from AF currently and be testing similar time to me.

I’m 29, boyfriend is 27
TTC baby number 1, cycle 2 (ish.. we half tried last month but didn’t track anything!)
Trying SMEP this month
AF came today and is due 30th May

If everyone is on a similar date and wants to support each other then feel free to jump on 🙋🏼‍♀️☀️❤️

TTC #1 and this is my second month of trying. Both me and my husband are 28, AF came for me last weekend and due again 23rd May.
I am also trying SMEP this month.
Finger crossed for you @littlebee1990 and e everyone who joins after this post that may is your month!

AF arrived for me today too so thought I'd join. I had no PMS symptoms this month so thought I might've been in with a chance but it wasn't meant to be! I had my implant out in October 2019 but this was only really our third month properly trying. Also trying for our first. Fingers crossed for more luck this cycle for us all smile

Hey, would I be OK to jump on please! AF not due until the 6th and that will be our first cycle of trying smile

Am 28, will be our first child. Very excited/nervous!

Hi all I’d like to join too please! smile AF arrived for me today - got my hopes up as had a couple of faint positive tests in last couple of days so feeling quite down in the dumps now! Trying to reset and focus on this cycle now, and not get too obsessive over testing, but I’m not sure that will happen!

Littlebee1990 Thu 30-Apr-20 20:14:48

Lovely to meet you all! I’ve decided NO early testing this month.. I did 4 last month and it does you no favours what so ever. I came off the pill December 2019 but used condoms for a few months but now decided we’re ready!

Look forward to being on this journey with you all and sprinkling baby dust our way xx

Jumping onboard! Currently CD6 after AF arrived on April 25th. This will be my first cycle trying after MC in March, so technically it's our 3rd cycle TTC.

Going to start peeing on those OPK this weekend as my body is still a bit funky and I don't want to miss the window.

AF due for me on/around May 23rd this month.

Hey ladies,

I'm 33 ttc baby number 4.
Still on cycle 3 as AF hasn't showed today but I'm not pregnant. I think I must of ovulated later than I thought as I ran outta opks 🙈🤷🏼‍♀️ actually I just don't know anymore lol
this is cycle day 31. Since coming off my pill my cycles have been 29-31 days. Had every pregnancy symptom under the sun but it's now tailed off I'm now thinking I have some sort of weird ovulation symptoms. Unfortunately DH was away working so if I ovulated late there will be no chance of a baby.
So glad to keep in touch with u girls. Tho think I'm all outta sync now 😞

LAG1986 Thu 30-Apr-20 23:32:21

Hi. I'm 33, trying for number 3. This will be cycle number 4. Think I might just try relaxing about things more this month, see what happens.
Hows everyone doing? Xx

Would love to join the chat... Im cd6 af arrived on Sunday. Looking forward to a fresh month! We are looking to try for our 3rd...have always had 28 day cycles but had the flu over Christmas and my cycles have been a bit off whack since then.
Hi @lag1986 👋👋

LAG1986 Fri 01-May-20 10:29:56

Hi @motherofdinosau. Hope you're well lovely. Still trying here too. Fingers crossed for us in next few months xxx

DoctorBambino Fri 01-May-20 10:33:28

Can I join? AF arrived for me today too. I'm 31, very nearly 32 eek! This will be our second cycle of properly trying ie OPKs etc. Am considering SMEP but not sure yet. Desperate for this to be our month! Fingers crossed this will be a lucky thread.grin

Wearewaiting Fri 01-May-20 10:46:44

Hi! Just joined myself and period started yesterday as well! I’m 27, partner is 34 and we’ve been TTC number 2 for 18 months. I ordered a bbt and conceive plus last night because surely somethings gotta help right? we’ve been using OPKS so far, so decided to step it up! Baby dust to all this month ❤️

Ary123 Fri 01-May-20 17:48:22

Hi guys.

I am 28 and my husband is 27. I have just started my period today after coming off the pill! Never been so happy to see AP! So will be starting our second cycle To try for baby no1 after AF! Good luck everyone xx

DKDK123 Fri 01-May-20 20:11:51

AF due around 27th May, 9th cycle trying for baby number 2. It's very frustrating when I think someone could have gotten pregnant went thru the 9month pregnancy and had the baby in the time it's taken me still trying 😫 Onwards and upwards tho maybe this is the month. Hoping to hear lots of positive stories at the end of this month, good luck ladies 🤞

peonyrose87 Fri 01-May-20 21:33:52

Hi, can I join too? I’m 32, had a MMC at 11 weeks in January and my second AF since then started this morning so I’m on cycle 2. Actually tested yesterday as I thought I was pregnant again, but no such luck sad ordered ovulation kits today, and will start tracking. Sending lots of positive vibes for everyone

kirsteng04 Sat 02-May-20 12:03:54

Thanks for making the new thread @Littlebee1990!
Hi everyone! 27 ttc #1. AF came on the 30th was hoping for a miracle "I conceived the first month we tried!" but sadly it wasn't to be 🤣 I've ordered preseed and easy@home OPKs just because why not! I used One Step OPKs last month but wasn't that impressed. I'm still considering the digital CB but gonna see how we get on for a couple of months first. I have 34 day cycles so not due FW until 20th(ish) May 😑 its gonna be another long month! Xx

jazzibelle Sun 03-May-20 15:09:53

Got my first flashing smiley of this cycle! I have used Clue to track my periods for around 4 years (even before TTC), and since TTC I found it has been pretty spot on in terms of predicting ovulation (at least according to when the static smiley appears and when Clue says I'll ovulate). I should ovulate around May 9th, so planning on DTD Mon/Wed/Fri, depending on what the OPK say from here...

Fingers crossed for me ladies, praying we're successful and it's a sticky one this time.

I'm also taking low dose aspirin daily as I read this can help.

Littlebee1990 Sun 03-May-20 16:03:55

So lovely to have so many of us in similar situations! Sending baby dust to all and lots of fun trying 😍 AF seems to be easing off so can’t wait to start!

Alice8688 Sun 03-May-20 17:14:45

Hello everyone.

I hope it's ok if I jump on. AF arrived yesterday and we've decided that this is the month to start again.

Bit of a long story so I'll try and keep it short! We mc end of last year at 9 weeks. I suffered awfully from HG from 4.5 weeks and then with the loss: I wasn't in a good place at all. I didn't grieve because I just wanted to "stop feeling sick". Then when I did stop feeling sick once all the hormones dropped: I grieved quite hard and felt a lot of guilt.

We decided to stop because I wasn't sure I could manage again. I finally got round to making an appt for contraception. When it got cancelled the other day I felt relief. And DH and I realised: maybe we are ready again. I'd be due AF on 30th May.

Sorry for the epic!

Good luck to everyone.

Hi all,

Please can I join? Ive been a bit of a MN lurker in my TWW but AF arrived for me today and could do with some support. Next AF is due 30th May.

Me and DP are 27 and TTC baby no 1. Was on depo 10 years, came off Dec 18. Started trying from last July but only started properly tracking cycles etc since start of this year and no luck so far. I’m far too impatient and sending off a thriva fertility test this month so hopefully that will flag any issues.

Good luck to everyone smile

MrsB93 Sun 03-May-20 19:30:02

Hi all,

Looking to join too! I’m 26 and this is baby no. 2 for me. Conceived DD in the first cycle but not been as easy this time around. Have been TTC for 5 cycles now after having mirena removed in December although only properly started charting things the last 2 cycles. Had AF on the 27th so will be due again around the 25th (assuming my cycle behaves!). Going to track this cycle more closely with OPKs and trying the SMEP.

Lots of luck to everyone smile

Naera95 Sun 03-May-20 22:05:57

How’s everyone going. Currently CD8 today and getting excited to start BD this month. Really hoping cycle 10 this month is our good luck charm xxx

Littlebee1990 Sun 03-May-20 23:45:53

Hey @naera95 CD4 and bleeding easing off, trying SMEP this month so will DTD on Thursday and Saturday and start using my clear blue ovulation sticks on Saturday which will be CD10.. also excited to start BD this month! Xx
