Thanks for the new thread!

A question, how long do your periods last? Mine are quite long since MC and overlapping with supposedly fertile time as I've got quite a short cycle. I've realised I don't know what normal is though.... thanks!x

Thanks for the new thread @M4v3r1ck!

@Marvellouslymadmum check this out. It's in Sussex so I thought I should share with you. I saw this urologist recommended when searching around mumsnet and googled him, we just watched his video.

Β£495 for their enhanced male fertility MOT seems pretty good to me when a hycosy for me would cost Β£500.

Hi everyone!!! πŸ‘‹
Anyone over 35 and trying for baby #1?
Baby dust for everyone ✨

Marvellouslymadmum Mon 19-Apr-21 00:47:08

@thislittlebird ooh I'll have a look thank you!

@VixFromThe6ix I'm 42 and we both have two teens each but none together so it's no 1 together

VixFromThe6ix Mon 19-Apr-21 00:57:44

@Marvellouslymadmum aw!! That's so sweet. I am sending you all my positive thoughts. How long have you been ttc??

Hello! Just marking a place. I am 12dpo and usual AF stuff including spotting so think that's me on to the next cycle. Best of luck to everyone!

TTCat39 Mon 19-Apr-21 07:43:07

Hi @Sleeeeeepy My AF lasts 5 days and has the same pattern to it each time -
Day 1 heavy with quite a lot of cramping, Day 2 heavy, Day 3 lighter, Day 4 nothing! It just stops, temporarily, before reappearing for a light Day 5.

Hi @VixFromThe6ix I'm 39 and trying for baby #1

KatRee Mon 19-Apr-21 07:59:02

Thanks @M4v3r1ck !

@VixFromThe6ix -I'm 37 and trying for #1

@Yumcoffee Can't say I thoroughly enjoy the salmon, but I do feel better for it, like I was definitely lacking some nutrients that it has or something. I keep seeing adverts when I'm online for algae-derived omega 3 supplements, but also read somewhere that we absorb animal-derived ones better (never really know whether to trust that kind of info though-suspect there might be someone with an agenda behind it) and the thing with having salmon 2x week is it sorts out 2 really easy, healthy dinners with minimal effort, so I'm less likely to cave in and stick a pizza in the oven on those days!

@M4v3r1ck thanks for the new thread lovely πŸ‘ in answer to your question (ages ago πŸ˜…) yes the diet and weight loss is still going well, almost 1.5 stone off and aiming for another stone now! Feeling good πŸ’ͺ and happy I’ve stayed focussed on it!

Congrats to the 2 new BFPs πŸ™ for a happy, healthy, stress free 9 months ahead for you both (won’t let me tag as not sure if on this new thread yet).

Welcome newbies! And good luck 🀞 I’m on cycle 15 now, age 39! Ttc3 but first with my OH. You will find lots of support and info here from these knowledgeable ladies πŸ₯°

thislittlebird Mon 19-Apr-21 10:07:15

Hi @VixFromThe6ix! I’m trying for number one too, I’m 37 but about to be 38 confused (started trying when I was 36).

thislittlebird Mon 19-Apr-21 10:08:08

Speaking of diet and weight loss...yeah...I’m gonna have to get on that from next week. Weighed myself last night πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ

Katiekattty Mon 19-Apr-21 10:11:27

Hi everyone, just checking in.

@VixFromThe6ix I’m 37 soon to be 38 trying for #1

thislittlebird Mon 19-Apr-21 11:33:07

Oh in timing news for my cycle, I’m only on day 9 and some wild EWCM has appeared.

So far this again tallies with the previous time I had acupuncture where I ovulated earlier, but it showed up on cd11 that time, cd9 is very early for me but I shan’t complain.

Noodella18 Mon 19-Apr-21 12:07:14

@VixFromThe6ix I'm 37 but am fortunate enough to have a daughter who's 2 next month. We were very lucky to conceive 2nd cycle last time and hoping it happens quickly again. What about you? You're 37 and ttc #1 I take it?!

Noodella18 Mon 19-Apr-21 12:10:17

Ladies, do we think this is positive? I've been stressing that I've killed off my ovulation with vit b complex as I'm on CD 20 now and my LH levels have been higher than normal for 4 days but no surge. I thought it was supposed to be low, low, low, HIGH! Not a gradual increase.

This was just now but the test line is two-tone, left bit is dark and right bit is lighter. What on earth is that supposed to mean?! Stupid femometer opks. Off to get a box of clear blue shortly.

TTCat39 Mon 19-Apr-21 12:45:01

@thislittlebird I had 5 days of EWCM this month, which is a bit longer than usual. Also thought it strange when it started early for me, but continued all the way to my smiley OPK.
