New thread for the crazy gang - Part 5!(444 Posts)
Not sure if anyone else has made one yet, hoping we haven’t got lost!! So made a new thread just in case 😊
If I’ve missed anyone please add in!
Lucky thread number 5.... hopefully 🤞🏻🤞🏻
Thanks for the tag @Mumofboys17 x how is everyone? I am sooo keeping my fingers crossed for everyone here 🤞🤞 I attempted to join conversations on pregnancy board for Jan 2021 babies, but I still prefer to chat to you lovely ladies x hope that’s ok? Please do tell me if you’d rather I didn’t post updates x
I’m 5 + 3 today and no changes really. Boobs and nips still sore and annoying me during the night. Had to get up for a wee last couple of nights too, but it might be purely due to amount of liquid I drink x I had some period like pains yesterday and still occasional brown discharge but tiny bit and only on wiping so I’m hoping everything is ok 🤞 I book private scan for when I’m 8 weeks x and planning on telling family after that if all is ok x do you think it’s too early? x
@Katie1109 don't be silly!! We're all in this journey together! In a perfect world after this cycle we can all join a Pregnancy thread together!! (We can but hope) we've all come too far together!
Glad to hear all is going OK 😊 I've felt so off since my AF finished this cycle. Boobs still kill and I'm still having AF like cramps. Putting it down to the vitamins and maybe being more aware of symptoms at the moment, dunno 😂 started OPK's again yesterday so just started the first phase of the waiting game x
Hope everyone else is doing OK? Has everyone tested now and onto the next cycle? X
Thanks for setting up @Mumofboys17. Awh I would find it so hard to wait that long to say anything @Katie1109 I dont think it is too early. Think everyone could use some positive news these days.
@Katie1109 meant to add there I think I told my mum and in laws about DS about 2 days after I'd POAS 😂😂 it's totally up to you when you tell people! Might be nice for it to go with a scan pic too though, especially with the lack of social contact right now xx
I think after your 8 week scan is a lovely time to share @Katie1109. We still haven't told anyone yet, my OH is quite funny about waiting until after the 12 week scan. He still hasn't told anyone that we lost one earlier this year even though I told my family and close friends. We don't live close to any of our family or our closest friends (we have friends here, just not that close). When something goes wrong it's really just us supporting each other.
@Mumofboys17 thank you for setting this up I'm still on the same long ass cycle and anywhere between 0 and 10DPO 😂 I think we've done all we can this month now tbh, so just waiting it out. I think I'll test on Sunday but we'll see how the rest of this week goes I guess 🤷♀️
@Katie1109 please stay, I would like all of the updates please ❤️ I don't necessarily think the brown CM when you wipe is anything to worry about, as remember your body is working on creating your plug right now. Sexy, right?!
As for telling people, my darling OH told his brother we were trying on the phone the other day 🤦♀️ I was keen not to tell family as he already has two children, so we know there are no issues with his fertility. I love his family to bits, but they think he is like this god that can do no wrong so I'm worried if it doesn't happen they'll think there's something wrong with me 😔
Hi, hope you don't mind me joining. I realise this is a long running thread but from previous lurking you all seem in a similar boat to myself. I'm perhaps a few months behind most of you.
Bit about me. I'm 28 and have been off the pill since sept 2019, currently on 7th cycle ttc #1 and just entered the dreaded TTW. 2DPO so not jumping on here to be a dick and ask for line eyes, just going crazy and looking for support.
Welcome @bumphope2020! You're in good company here, fingers crossed for lucky cycle number 7.
@LV1987 Arrghhh, bit awkward that isn't it 😕 last time we were TTC we were mega open and told everyone about it. This time I've confided in my sister (we're literally best friends and she was at DS' birth) and mentioned it loosely to my mum but that's about it. Hopefully it won't matter anyway as you'll be up the duff soon and everything will be fine!! ❤️ here's to positive thinking lol xx
@bumphope2020 Welcome! We're all about as mental as you can get during TTC, as long as you're not too sensitive or easily offended you're well in 👍🏻😂 xx
Thanks girls x I’m not feeling very positive at the moment. I have just found pink discharge on my panty liner and I’m convinced this is the beginning of the end for us again x I’m also having very mild af like cramps 😭 it will probably get much worse soon x GP said there’s nothing they can do and to phone them on Monday they can then refer me to EPU for a scan as I’m going to be 6 weeks x
@Katie1109 please don't lose hope yet. Some women bleed throughout their entire pregnancies, some have normal periods! You might just be one of those unlucky ones who doesn't get a full break from AF x
Got everything crossed for you lovely. Everything will be OK ❤️
@Katie1109 sending virtual hugs to you like @Mumofboys17 said please don’t loose hope some women do have bleeding and if it’s not red your fine. I’m sure mild cramping is normal too as your uterus starts to stretch.
@bumphope2020 welcome to the crazy gang. It is a great thread for support when others don’t really understand this journey and how hard it can be sometimes. Hoping this thread brings you some luck too. I’m also 2DPO so you can be my cycle buddy this time round x
Thanks all. No one knows we are ttc so it will be nice to share the hopeful highs and lows of this crazy journey with people who understand.
@Danni2019 hopefully this is the month for both of us! I'm already starting to symptom spot which is crazy as I know it's impossible to have any symptoms so early.
@Mumofboys17 very awkward! His boyfriend seemed more excited at another niece/nephew tbh, could hear him squealing in the background and had to remind him that we are not pregnant yet 🤦♀️ but yes, hopefully I'll be duffed before I know it! We all will!!
I had the strangest dream last night... I peed in a tea cup at an airport while waiting for a delayed flight, and used a "special tea bag" as a pregnancy test. Didn't get a result, surprisingly 😂 Vivid dreams are a symptom that I can spot, right?! 🤞
How are we all? X
Morning ladies x
Thank you for your support x I had quite a bit of cramps last night, used hot water bottle to ease the pain but didn’t have anymore pink or brown discharge since I wrote to you yesterday x just a sticky white cm x I feel like I’m on a rollercoaster 🤦♀️
How is everyone? Where are you in your cycles? x
Hi @katie1109, I think it's understandable to feel up and down right now - even if you weren't already worried, your hormones would probably be making you feel a little bit like that in any case. I'm CD31 today, and hopefully somewhere in the TWW, but I never did get that static smiley 🤷♀️
@LV1987 thanks x my OH said the same thing to me yesterday x how long are your cycles normally? x
@katie1109 you're welcome lovely. This year, they've averaged 37 days. My longest was 44 and my shortest 34, so I'm nearly there now. I'm thinking of testing on Sunday as then I'll be late based on last month, but I do have in the back of my mind that I may just not be ovulating just yet 🤷♀️ x
Thank you for adding me @Mumofboys17 😊..
Feeling so confused 😫...so I've had a peak since last Saturday (my LH test as been as dark or darker then the control line every day since) my BBT as been 36.5 today, I also started on the norethisterone tablets Friday ( for a month) as I've not had a period since coming off the pill last November, as anyone had a peak for 5 days in a row PO? x
I've attached my BBT
@Boo2020 I don't know a lot about these temping charts... but how many dpo are you? I believe a spike in temp then it staying higher is meant to be a good sign?! 🤞🏻🤞🏻
@Mumofboys17 I am 5 DPO..that's if I actually ovulated then 😫 x
@Boo2020 I feel cautiously optimistic for you.. especially with the OPK's staying positive! I believe that's what happened to @Katie1109 before she got her bfp!
Hopefully it's a good sign! 😊 x
