I'm 31 TTC #1 after a MC in March this year, AF has just finished and I'm on CD6 and all ready to go for my 2nd full cycle.

This month I will be tracking with opks, CB connected, BBT and following SMEP plan.

I'm 32 ttc #2, had a mmc in February. In October I had a laparoscopy to diagnosis endometriosis and to drain an endometrioma on my right ovary. Fell pregnant in the December so was quite surprised at how quickly I fell.

I'm currently on af cycle day 2. I thought I was going to be lucky and get my bfp as I took a test on Tuesday evening as af was a day late I got a faint line but had been spotting for a few days. Then af came with a bang yesterday. So I'm not sure if the test was faulty or I've had a chemical.

Anyway this cycle I'm going to use opks to track ovulation, started drinking pink grapefruit juice as people have mentioned on another thread it helps with cm, also bought calc fleur tablets as this was also recommended on another thread to help implantation.

Sending lots of baby dust to all that join this thread and hope this is our month. 😀🌈 Xx

I'm 43, had my DD In September last year started trying again in November and got pregnant in December. I had a MMC at 9.5 weeks in February so chose to have medical intervention, then had retained product so didn't stop bleeding while end of March. I'm currently on CD9 of 2nd cycle since MMC. I'm currently trying SMEP and I also have Calc fleur for the tww xx

Saying Hi as i may be over on here soon 💖🌈

Thanks for setting this up @SmileyT.

I'm 33, TTC number 4 after losing #2&3 twin girls at 16 weeks in September 2019. Been TTC since xmas but my cycles are all over the place.

Hi ladies, ttc baby number 1 after a MMC at 9 weeks in February this year and a CP straight away after in March. Currently coming to the end of my 3rd cycle. Cycles have been all over the place since so hoping this one will be “normal” and AF due on the 26th may. This month I will be trying to temp (I always forget) using natural cycles, clear blue digital ovulation tests along with the cheapies. I take 5mg of folic acid due to my bmi and I take a conception vitamin. Will be looking into other natural ways to try and stabilise my hormones because I think they’re all over the place at the moment.

Renna Fri 22-May-20 08:50:22

AF arrived today so deffo on the June bus, had my cry 😓 this stuff is bloody hard! 😓
Get my new puppy Wednesday cannot wait for the distraction and app says to start opks on Thursday and think my fertile window will start then so will focus on that 💞
Might start the temping again from tomo so I get reassurance about ovulation .. I'd like to get an ava bracelet but I'd want it now rather than waiting for however long it will take to come in the post 🙄 xx

Sallyjo27 Fri 22-May-20 09:15:25

@renna it’s so difficult isn’t it? I felt much better after a good cry yesterday- it doesn’t help that my hormones are all over the place. I’m suffering with really bad pms I’ve just ordered Agnus cactus from Holland and Barrett I’ve heard it helps balance hormones and increase progesterone. Ah that’s lovely news!! What breed and what are you naming it??
I’m going to do the same with temping too, just got to remember to do it 😂. Me too! I’m looking at some on eBay, but they’re so expensive trying to convince DH I need one xx

Renna Fri 22-May-20 09:38:31

@sallyjo27 yup so hard 😓 bit of a cry made me feel better and makes me feel better DH up for trying other things. Gonna give a change to his supplements a go. Got fertilaid for men instead of well man hes used last couple months. Read good things about fertilaid so gonna give that a go and gonna get one of those fertilily cups.
I feel more like proactive like I'm doing something about it if I try something different each cycle!
Yeah I've been looking at ava too on ebay. May get one.. I'm in one of those moods today I'll be like screw it and just buy all these additional things not thinking about the costs 🙄🙄 xxx

Renna Fri 22-May-20 09:39:35

We are getting a Pomsky .. called her Shelby smile xx

Sallyjo27 Fri 22-May-20 10:21:00

@Renna oh my gosh! She is absolutely adorable! I’m sure she will keep you busy 😍
That’s fab that your DH is so supportive, I’ve been looking at the fertility cups so might give that a go too. I’ve heard really good things about them. I’m so impatient so that really doesn’t help, I’ve been watching lots of videos on YouTube regarding hormone balance & boosting fertility naturally so I’ve ordered a shit load of vitamins 😂 xx

Hi every one. I'm 27 and will be TTC my rainbow hopefully in June. I am current having a MC after being at around 11 weeks. Hoping this is over soon and I can join this. Coming here from the May bus.

Renna Fri 22-May-20 11:16:29

Hi @Furbsies sorry to hear what you're currently going through xxx welcome to the thread xx sending lots of luck to you xx

HE88 Fri 22-May-20 11:44:06

@Renna sorry af got you it's such a crap situation but a cry seems to help. Xx
@Furbsies welcome and sorry to hear what you are going through. Xx

Hi ladies I have been following the May thread as I went through a miscarriage 2 weeks ago and I wanted to hear from those in the same boat. This is the first time I've commented though and though I don't have much hope for June I need all the support i can get 🙈 I am 29, ttc baby number 3 and my loss this month was my first miscarriage. I was nearly 10weeks. Was always something I dreaded and still can't believe it happened though I do feel grateful for 2 previous healthy pregnancies. I have PCOS and irregular cycles so it makes family planning all a bit more difficult.. hoping to use ovulation tests etc to know when I can start to hope for another pregnancy.

How long after miscarriage did it take your cycles to normalize?

Sorry in advance for the fact that I still have a lot to learn about all of the TTC acronyms! I might sound stupid sometimes!

Lots of love to you all for all you have been through.

Ejb86 Fri 22-May-20 13:06:34

@1990EM I lost my twins at 16 weeks in September. I'm still waiting for my cycles to normalise. Our bodies are all so different, we all react differently.

HE88 Fri 22-May-20 13:06:36

@1990EM welcome and sorry to hear what you have went through I was also 10 weeks when I had my mmc.
My 1st period came 5 weeks later, then I had a 28 day cycle then just there a 30 day cycle so I wouldn't say I've settled into a regular cycle but I was never regular before I fell pregnant. Sorry that's probably not much help.
Sending lots of luck and love to you. Xx

Hi! Here from the May thread as I’m spotting (again - this seems to be how my first AF started after mc, so I’m not feeling positive about this one!)

I just turned 36, ttc journey started in Jan this year. We were really lucky to conceive first time, but sadly had a mmc - was 9 weeks by dates but hadn’t progressed further than 5 sad this will be 4th cycle post mc

Ejb86 Fri 22-May-20 13:48:09

@1990EM I must apologise. I responded to you without thinking when I was being distracted by my little boy. I'm so sorry for what you have been through.

HE88 Fri 22-May-20 14:13:51

Hi @Bellabubble when is af due? I also get spotting before af and always have done its a bit annoying tbh. Xx

Bellabubble Fri 22-May-20 15:37:59

@HE88 AF is due from today until Sunday across my 2 apps (I go between 27 and 29 day cycles) and am currently 12dpo. I have never had spotting before - it really is annoying! I was always straight in to full AF, it definitely makes it feel shorter!! xx

HE88 Fri 22-May-20 16:06:29

@Bellabubble ah I see could be ib I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that af stays away. Xx

1990EM Fri 22-May-20 16:13:14

@Ejb86 no need to apologise at all. I can't imagine what you have been through with a late stage loss of twins . I'm so sorry. I have a feeling as I am normally so irregular with my cycles that it will take me a long time to regulate again too.. but we will get there 💗

SmileyT Fri 22-May-20 16:16:12

Hi Ladies, so sorry for AF arriving today @Renna but at least you can get on with a fresh new cycle... will you order the ferti-lily cup? And yes to a new doggy to distract you ❤️

@Sallyjo27 @Ejb86 are you both planning to test in May, definitely not out yet if AF is due over the next week 🤞

@Furbsies @1990EM so sorry for your losses hopefully won't be long until you have your rainbows. I've just finished 2nd AF since MC first cycle was 31 days and 2nd 27 days not that far off my 28 day cycle but no idea if that will continue x

@Bellabubble is there no chance it's an IB? Or have you ruled that out? I spotted first month and it was crappy just makes you feel like you're out before you really are 😕
