Hi all, just thought I’d make a lead on thread from the TTC NOVEMBER 2021 group for us all to continue on. Wishing you the best of luck for a lovely little Christmas miracle ✨🎅🏼
@Billymay I'm not even going! It seemed the easiest thing was for me to pull out just in case we do conceive, so now a very likely outcome is that I don't conceive, don't go on the holiday and still have to take the zika delay, nightmare! I'm looking into private blood tests for hubby , if we can rule out infection maybe we can start sooner... Theres also a chance omnicron is going to put a stop to the trip, though I know I shouldn't hope for that 😂😂 Are you going to Barbados @billymay, or elsewhere?
@Tor88 oh god so sorry I read it wrong… it can’t hurt to look into blood tests. I’m not going anywhere I just have my daughters, husbands and dads birthday in jan and my second daughters in feb and with Christmas I just need a few months free as money will be tight and don’t want to add pressure on me and my husband by adding another birthday. I really liked the thought of a September baby but think I’m clutching at straws this month but you just never know. Xx
Caved this morning and got a bfn 11dpo will not be testing until after AF is due now if doesn't arrive!
Has anyone tried the Mira kit?
If I don't get a positive this month (fingers crossed we all get out BFP!!!) I'm thinking of trying with Mira from January.
I'm pretty sure the most important thing is DTD in the most fertile days, I just don't trust the surge lines when I get them and also I have no idea when the egg is released after the surge. It might be 12h, 24, 36, 48...
From what I read Mira tests for more than just LH so it might be useful.
Have you ladies have experience with it or have heard someone using it?
Also I am either day 5 or 6 DPO and I have no weird symptoms.
No nausea, no sore boobs, no weird sense of smell, no cramps, no headaches. I am emotional and tired but I think that's just my constant state of being )
@newjourney21 I'm similar to you. Af is due today though (14 dpo) and I got a bfn this morning on clear blue digital. Still convinced I'm pregnant this month so hoping af doesn't arrive. Its so hard to wait to test, fingers crossed for you and everyone else
@alexalexalex18 I am 5/6 DPO Also. No weird symptoms either. It's far too early for me as this would be my 4th pregnancy and historically I've had symptoms only from day 8/9. I'm just ignoring everything till there is no AF this time. Or you go mad!
I haven't been preggo before, I'm also 31, really want to be done with it by this time next year )
There's no way we're not getting our BFP this month, it has to happen!
Manifestation, positive vibes only )
Yea, I want to test only after missing AF. Don't want to go crazy over every detail like last month.
Can I join this month's thread please ladies?
We're cycle 5 ttc baby number 2. Really excited (and impatient!) for it to happen.
Im trying to be relaxed about it but know I'll be testing early. 4dpo now so a while to wait.
I had a somewhat scary thought last night. DH has long Covid so I bloody hope that's not affecting his sperm! We got pregnant on the 4th cycle with number one, so hopefully the wait isn't much longer this time.
Sure @ExPatHereForAChat !
Hope you're getting your BFP this month! Fingers crossed!
Thank you @alexalexalex18. It is so frustrating getting those stark white BFNs every month. How great would a Christmas BFP be?!
it would be insanely amazing!
My app says that AF should be due on the 17th and that I should test on the 19th.
Long wait, but I feel positive!
@Billymay thank you Xxx you too! At least we can keep each other company in the wait ahead. I wish I wasn’t due AF so close to Christmas but I suppose I can drown my sorrows easily enough if this month isn’t to be! How’s the situation with your other half?
@alexalexalex18 it's so tough not to worry about i!! How long have you been trying (sorry if this discussion came up already). We are only on TTC 2nd month so I'm hopeful it might happen over the next few 🤞🤞
9dpo, no real symptoms, is anyone experiencing any? X
I am on the 4th cycle! Not due AF until next week..but may start testing on the wkend! Have a little CM but don't think it's significant..lets see...
We tried last month but I think we missed the fertile window because I drink lots of water and pee lots so it’s difficult to catch the surge.
Hoping this month I get lucky
How's it going?
Day 6 or 7 post ovulation for me, no symptoms.
Had a headache last night and vivid dreams (no idea what's this related to dreams, I forgot where I read about it).
I feel some tenderness in my left boob ) but that can happen anytime I guess.
Was reading about CM that it has to be thick and white after implantation, do any of you ladies who were pregnant before ever experience this?
I am using progesterone vaginal capsules so I can't tell, each morning I see lots of the capsule on my pad and it sometimes drags on after showering, throughout the day 0 working from home so not very active.
Just spilling my thoughts here so I won't go cray cray )
Hope everyone is alright!
Fingers and toes crossed for you @alexalexalex18!! I am on ttc cycle 2, AF just finished so I've got another week or so before ovulation. This will be my first month using LH tests and trying to force DH into dtd at the right time which is going to be an interesting process for us both I think 😅😅 Baby dust to everyone xxx
Use as many as you can, I'm always afraid I test too late )
Hi hope you don't mind me joining.
I'm 27 my daughter turned 1 a couple weeks ago and I think it's the right time to try for another.
I have very irregular periods where I wouldn't get AF for upto 6-8 months so when trying for #2 I used opks and went by CM and positioning and conceived a month after my MC.
I'm part of FB groups from both my pregnancies and they're still going strong and are a great network of support, so thought I'd join another page again whilst trying.
@alexalexalex18 ah good to know thank you!!
How' it going? Any symptoms?
I'm feeling very lightheaded but again, I don't want to think it's related )
Been eating so much this week and literally just carbs
@alexalexalex18 I imagine it's hypersentive body relationship at play isn't it!
Nothing so far here, but at 7/8dpo I wouldn't expect much. I've never had a positive test untill CD29 ( 2 positives @13 days po, 1 @ 16po) so who knows! I recon I will give it a week and see what happens 🤞🤞 I'm ignoring my body untill it gives me a BFP 😂😂
Hope ye don't mind me joining in. I was due af yesterday. Still no sign, bfn this morning tho. Had loads of symptoms this month but I'm afraid I can feel af on way. Crossing my fingers
