Hi everyone. Anyone due around next Sun? I hate this last bit of waiting. Come and keep me company symptom spotting and the like. Maybe we shall be lucky.

LaLaBingBong Sat 26-Jul-08 08:49:46

See I am so desperate I posted twice.

Don't test, resist!!!!

Sorry I had to say it! The last bit of waiting is horrible. I am due tomorrow so have finally got through my last week.

Good luck to you and everyone who joins you on this thread.


LaLaBingBong Sat 26-Jul-08 09:37:25

Well done Happy. I shall try and resist the test. Good luck to you too!

mrsleroyjethrogibbs Sat 26-Jul-08 10:34:34

i will join you. although I foolishly tested early. my cycle is due up on the 31st july, so I am with you

LaLaBingBong Sat 26-Jul-08 12:18:26

Yey - and now there are two! Testing early is so tempting though! Let's be strong from now on! Any symptom spotting going on?

Are there only 2 of us out there?

AbstractMouse Sat 26-Jul-08 14:13:46

Hi, I think I'm due on the 1st or 2nd of August, just got the internet cheapies I ordered and I stupidly did one lol. Not like it would be even slightly possible to get a bfp 7dpo grin

Bluebutterfly Sat 26-Jul-08 14:20:48

I am due more or less around the same time (cycle irregular). After 1.5 years of trying, I have moved beyond the urge to do "early" pg tests - always costly cos you end up testing several times that month, and (in my experience) frequently disappointing sad. I would urge you not to! smile

But I am happy to cyber-hand hold for the next week with you!

mrsleroyjethrogibbs Sat 26-Jul-08 15:25:20

hmm symptoms havent been much me thinks. Needing to wee perhaps a bit more and feeling a bit queasy and off caffine, but tbh that is more than likely me imagining things. I dont think we are pg this cycle as tbh we havent dtd enough times. nevermind, its kind of fun trying

AbstractMouse Sat 26-Jul-08 17:13:13

Good luck all. I have the big vaguely achy boobs again this month and a bit more cm than usual but thats about it.

I'm not bothered about symptoms though had loads with dd and none with ds.

Does anyone have experience of the cheap tests?

LaLaBingBong Sat 26-Jul-08 18:57:17

Welocme Abstract Mouse and blue butterfly. I am glad we are all waiting together!

Well I have had a busy day, and no testing has occured. (I have no tests so that helps too.) I am going to try to hold out till next Sat at least. Now I need to plan the busiest 7 days ever to pass the time in between.

No experience of cheap tests personally - sorry Abstract Mouse. Do you mean the dip stick ones? I have heard they are all pretty accurate though.

Such a gorgeous day! Did you all have fun in the sun?

What do you all do about drinking alchohol when TTC? I am still enjoying it (just been on holiday and such gorgeous weather it's hard not too.) It does feel a bit weird when TTC though, but then again, it might take a ong while and that would mean not drinking 'just in case.' Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Bluebutterfly Sat 26-Jul-08 19:24:22

I don't know - I have been trying for so long that I have really let standards slip. I used to spend the entire post ov period not drinking, not eating all the "not when you're pg" foods, (2 weeks out of every month for 1.5 years). Now I am thinking, "I conceived ds without realising it, got fairly tipsy a couple of weeks into the pgy (still didn't know)" and so the odd glass (here and there) is probably not the end of the world - although all the preconceptual care books I have say "don't do it!".

I have the odd glass of wine now and again because I can't put my entire life on hold for the mere possibility of getting pg - but I wouldn't get totally wallied iykwim!

LaLaBingBong Sat 26-Jul-08 21:19:51

I think you're right BB. Although I think I had too much last week too. I guess that if both you and your partner drink alchohol it probably just reduces your chances of coneiving too, as well as potentially harming the baby? It's not possible to live as if you might be pregnant for 2 weeks every month though. So hard too when period arrives and you think of what you've missed!

So - being nosy now - BB - you're trying to conceive dc2? From what I can gather, I'm in a very similar situation although we've not been TTC no. 2 for so long.) DD was conceived very (rather too)easily! I therefore never had to go throught all this TTC palava. And it's tough mentally! Let's hope this is our month.

AbstractMouse Sat 26-Jul-08 22:35:41

I just carry on as normal during the 2ww, says she of little experience, I am currently in the 3rd month of not trying to concieve dc3. We had 2 months of oopsie moments which made me us realise we want dc3.

We had a talk and decided to ttc this month, on the day of ovulation pain no less, we dtd that day, so I'm not holding out much hope.

I concieved dd on the day of ov without trying wewerepissed (was a real shock, she wasn't planned)

Ds ws concieved the 1st month of not using condoms but no timed bd, so no experience of real ttc. I am quite excited really, obviously if it takes forever I will change my attitude lol.

AbstractMouse Sat 26-Jul-08 22:38:55

Exactly what are the foods that you can't eat when pregnant btw, I kind of glanced at a list last time but didn't take much notice.

AbstractMouse Sat 26-Jul-08 22:43:28

Sorry for the multiple posts but the only things I can see not recommended in pregnancy are manky cheeses and pate which I'm not a big fan of anyway. Any others?

hey there,

i'm due to test around next weekend too. desperate to know if we've been successful but not sure!

have been drinking (paying the price this morning with DS1) and trying not to put my life on hold too much.

What's the earliest you can test? i really don't want to waste as much money as i did last month but have one FR early left upstairs....

arrggghh the pressure is on me already!


ebeson Sun 27-Jul-08 08:32:02

Hi LaLa, ive just posted on your other one. Can i join, im due around 4th, but really think we BD too late, my boobs also feel sore as they normally do this sort of time before my af, so i have to say i dont feel very hopeful this month. But you never know for sure until witch shows i guess!

LaLaBingBong Sun 27-Jul-08 11:17:21

Hi busylady and ebeson. Glad you are joining us for the wait. It's going quicker already!
busylady - FR say you ca test very early now don't they? If you can leave it as long as possible though, do. I think it's nicer to think you might be for longer rather than get a negative too early and get all miserable when maybe there's still a chance. Sore boobs sound hopeful ebeson!

Abstract Mouse - this is our 3rd month of TTC too. I hope it's the one! I have realised my cycle is longer than before when DD was conceived (around 36 days) and so this is the first month where I think we have BD'd more around where ovulation should be (although am still BF so don't know if this is still affecting fertility??)

I have eaten most things on beherenow's list this month too! Oops.

bigtree Sun 27-Jul-08 17:10:07

Hi everyone..Can i join in?? period is due around Monday 3rd sooooo impatient done a test today(i know,i know)and no surprises it was negative..really hoping it's because i tested too early,but not holding out much hope..

This is my first month on clomid 100mg so am praying it works being ttc for 14 months with my dh..been having odd pains in my stomach and bad headaches everyday but am sure they're symptoms of the clomid.

bb's not really sore keep poking at them so they get sore..madness!!

Am on hols all of next week so at least it'll keep my mind off things a bit if no af then will try and hold out and test on sat 9th aug when i'm back..see you then..

Good luck to

LaLaBingBong Sun 27-Jul-08 17:21:38

Hi bigtree. It's very early to test so don't lose hope yet. Where are you going on hols?That'll be a good distarction for you. That's what I need - a holiday! This week is going to be the slowest ever!

Ok - this is naughty - but just to let you all know first response tests are on 2 for 1 at Boots. I don't know HOW I ended up in that section of the shop. Weird eh!

Bluebutterfly Sun 27-Jul-08 21:51:07

Hi LaLa - belated response to your question (sorry). Yes we are trying for number 2 (ds is 3.5 and was also conceived without much planning!) Well fingers crossed for us both, (but I have been starting to feel a bit pre-menstrual, so I am not too optimistic for me atm although no sign of AF yet!). Hope that this is your (and all the other hopefuls) month, even if it isn't mine!

bigtree Sun 27-Jul-08 22:57:27

Hi LaLa..
Thanks for the boots tip..wink

Am off to Newquay for the week,really looking forward to it,only dh has done his ankle in so is hobbling on crutches which means i'll be doing all the driving(i live up north so got a bit of a journey)least all the BD'ing has been done for this month,else that would have been interesting!!

i'll keep everything crossed for you and hopefully when i get back there'l be a few BFP's!!xxsmile

LaLaBingBong Mon 28-Jul-08 11:11:41

BB - feeling premenstrual can be a sign of being pregnant too though. I felt like my period was about to start any minute with DD1. It never did!

Have a great holiday bigtree. Your poor DH. Let's hope there are loads of BFP's when you get back.

Ebeson, busylady and abstract mouse - how are you all doing?

I am trying not to symtpom spot at the mo. Difficult as lots of lower back ache! So defintely pregnant then!
