I can't join the clomid threads (although i suspect i'll probably be joining at some point), not 1st time TTC, can't use clearblue digital fertility monitor,so not on that thread, not over 40. Anyone else want to join me on a thread for people who don't fit in with the others.

I'm waiting at the moment to go for an ovarian scan to see if I have PCOS.

Can I join. Feeling crappy this evening not preggers this month as af here. Dh works away and feel this ttc malarky is going to take ages as he never home at right time. TTC no 4. First two happened v easily, 3rd one had a mc then feel first time of trying and this time feels like its taking forever.

Know I should not complain as I have 3 already. But dh also doesn't really like sex that often so that makes it bloody difficult as well.

choufleur Wed 30-Sep-09 21:31:51

welcome gem. is it just me and you?

I have a DS (had to take clomid first time round).

randomtask Wed 30-Sep-09 21:35:50

Am I allowed to join? It is my first time TTC however, I'm already a Mum as I have a DSS. I'm also not using fertility monitors, not having clomid or anything and am 12 years under 40!

Incidentally though, I also don't fit into most of the step parent threads as DSS's Mummy (DH's first wife) died so I don't have 'problems with the ex'.

Sometimes I feel DH has made me too unusual!!

well there are 3 of us odd-bods now.

Feel fed up tonight as SIL is going into hospital tomorrow for c-section. Very happy for her but would rather like to be pregnant myself too.

choufleur Wed 30-Sep-09 22:02:58

Sorry cross posts tiffanys - 4 now

tiffanys Wed 30-Sep-09 22:12:35

choufleur try not to feel to fed up, lets keep all our fingers crossed it will be us soon.

I have to say tho that I feel fed up to....I can just tell af is round the corner and I have a presentation to give at work tomorrow but dont feel at all prepared. Sorry for the rant sad

I am trying to keep positive and think hopefully our bfps are not to far away.

It took me 6 months ttc dd so was not expecting to catch first month.... although was hoping.

Also trying to give myself other focus such as getting fitter and losing wieght... but not going to well blush .... silly chocolate bars keep callimg my name grin grin

TishTosh21 Thu 01-Oct-09 09:25:48

WOO! I dont fit into any of those categories either! I dont even know what clomid is blush
Im TTC#1 and came off the pill 3 and half weeks ago, no period not even withdrawal bleed. Ive been confusing myself trying to think of all these days and ovulation dates and test dates i dont even know where i am anymore! So gonna do a test next week if my AF doesnt come before then.

choufleur Thu 01-Oct-09 12:55:52

If you're on here much tish you'll figure out what clomid is soon enough. Hope you don't ever have to take it.

It's immensely confusing. My head was spinning after i left the doctor a couple of weeks ago.

hope the presentation went well tiffanys

TishTosh21 Thu 01-Oct-09 12:57:39

Im on here every day its v addictive grin

sparechange Thu 01-Oct-09 13:04:02

Can I join you please?
I had popped my head in a couple of the other threads, but since coming off the pill on 6th September, nothing has happened!
No period (except 2 days of very light withdrawal pill bleeding, as usual), no ewcm, no pmt, no tender pre-AF boobs... Zilch!

So until I can work out if my insides are working, I feel like a bit of a fraud saying we are TTC...

sparechange Thu 01-Oct-09 13:11:41

oooh, tishtosh, I just saw your post
Glad to hear I'm not the only one, but double frustrated that there are two of us in this situation.

Fingers crossed for good news for you if you test next week

TishTosh21 Thu 01-Oct-09 14:37:52

Hello sparechange!

We are in the exact position! I cant believe someone else is with me almost to the day grin

I took my last pill on the 1st Sept and had the normal 7 day break with the "pill period" then didnt start my next pack on the 8th like i would have normally.

Ive had no bleeding whatsoever not even withdrawal. I bought a test today because i couldnt hold out any longer, i havent used it yet as my DP wants to be here when i do. Its so tempting to do it 2mo morning but i dont want it to be a false result.
I cant bear the waiting any more!!

sparechange Thu 01-Oct-09 14:50:19

Let me know how you get on!
I'm imaganing symptoms left right and centre (although the smell of my own perfume made me retch a couple of days ago)
In reality, I don't think we've had nearly enough sex, and it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago which meant being out drinking for a couple of nights, so it is veeeery unlikely

I think I'm the same as you to day!
I had my last pill on 30th Aug and had a pill period (is that different to withdrawal? I thought they were the same thing - clearly need to do more reading up!!)
Then started my next pack on 6th. I took 1 pill, then DH and I decided to go for it now, rather than wait until after christmas as per our original plan. Got another very light bleed a couple of days later, but nothing at all since.

I have read other posters saying it could take 30+ days to get a proper AF, so I'm trying my best to be patient, but it really isn't my strong point.
The reason we started now rather than wait until the new year is because once I get an idea into my head, there is no such thing as waiting in my book!

TishTosh21 Thu 01-Oct-09 15:09:54

Haha i cant believe how much like u i am!
Oh maybe the pill period is the withdrawal bleed, hmm lol

Well it will be 28 days on Tues, why is it that the symptoms are the same for AF and preg?? very annoying lol.

Me and my partner were going to wait til xmas but that went out the window a few weeks ago! I was going to wait and have a few "real" periods, and we would use condoms but that didnt really work out so well so we just thought sod it!
We have been having sex almost every day bar a few days when i had a water infection so im hoping on of them got through!

sparechange Thu 01-Oct-09 15:50:46

I'm keeping everything crossed for you TishTosh

choufleur Thu 01-Oct-09 18:51:01

we've been trying for more frequently sex too tishtosh but i get fed up as no idea when ovulating. Don't want everything to start t o become very mechanical

TishTosh21 Fri 02-Oct-09 08:44:58

Thanks sparechange let me know how you get on too.

Yeah but we enjoy having sex that much we always have even before we started trying so its not much of a change to us

tiffanys Fri 02-Oct-09 15:58:55

Hi all

Quick update, af caught up with me this morning sad felt a bit disappointed but am at least glad that I know roughly what my cycle length is so not all bad!

choufleur presentation went very well , i was very pleased! How are you getting on, any updates?

Me and dh are going to try and dtd more this month too but I hear what your saying about it become to mechanical...... i guess it can easily become that way if we are not careful!

maybe ill throw in a lil a little change to spice it up grin

any news from you tish have you tested yet?

am off now might even have a glass of wine tonight!

good luck to all!

choufleur Fri 02-Oct-09 19:32:48

Sorry af came tiffanys. maybe next month

no updates, going for my scan on monday so will see what happens then.

SIL is still pregnant though. DRs didn't get the right drugs for her to have her c-section (she has some problems with her heart).

TishTosh21 Fri 02-Oct-09 20:38:30

Hi tiffanys,

Not really any news from me, am going to test on Tues as that will be 28 days since coming off the pill, although im not sure if my af will come before then as im getting period pains not feeling all that hopeful but no period is always a good sign so am keeping fingers crossed.

tiffanys Sat 03-Oct-09 07:20:46

tish im keeping my fingers crossed for you..... its not over till af arrives! i was disappopinted but at least i know my cycle length now and have a little something to work with!

choufleur I hope the scan goes well, keep us updated.

well off again now.

TishTosh21 Sat 03-Oct-09 09:27:48

Thanks tiffanys, i really hope af doesnt arrive but will keep you updated on whats going on with me!
