It's got to happen in 2016..

It's maybe the gin. It's maybe the Christmas spirit. But I'm feeling optimistic.

2016 is going to be the year. I'm actually going to pee on a stick and see two lines!

Been trying since January. Been dealing with loooong cycles and no signs of ovulation. It's damn well going to happen now. This will be the last year anyone will ask about our childlessness and whether we are planning for a family. 2016 will be my year. January I will trot off to the docs and make sure I have a referral. And there will be progress!

Anyone else got a new found sense of christmas spirit and optimism?

We've been ttc since January with not even a hint of a bfp. I too am going to take myself off to the docs next week and see where we can go from here. It's been quite a stressful year and I've had very long cycles after coming off cerazette (evil pill!). Hopefully 2016 will be our year too.

The Yasmin pill was a bitch for me. I'm still not settled down properly, but my cycles have improved (50-odd days down from 76 days)

TTC has been my only stress this year. I've had little else distracting me from the BFN's every now and again.

wine merry christmas!

We've been ttc since January too we have a 4yo ds who was conceived in 6 weeks so arrogantly thought this would be easy for us. I've been charting and trying to be scientific about it but my cycles have gone from being 28 day regular to anything between 24 and 33 days, not getting any positive ovulation kits and I've also had mid cycle bleeds. I'm convinced there's something wrong dh gets annoyed with me as he sees I'm negative.

I've had 21 day blood test last week to test hormones but not called back for results yet mainly because I think if they say everything's fine there's no explanation for this.

I'm 35 soon and dh is already 40 I feel like I'm running out of time and it's maddening. I am on cycle day 32 but haven't been well this month so think it's just late did test eRlier to allow me guilt free baileys tonight and tomorrow and it was negative ......of course it was.

Try to have a nice Christmas ladies

2016 is a new year figgy! It's going to happen! Hopefully your tests come back with promising results. I'm due to get day 2 and day 21 blood work done, but as yet had been unable to make it along on the right days. January will be a chance for me to do that!

MillieMoodle Thu 24-Dec-15 23:18:02

We also have a 4 year old DS who we conceived the first month of ttc so naively thought it'd be the same this time round.
It's nigh on impossible to get an appointment at our doctors, I called in November and they just wouldn't let me book an appointment! I am going to call after Christmas and insist! Feeling quite disheartened about it all at the moment. I am also on cd32 and got bfn earlier. I think I felt the last bit of hope I had for this month disappear. Ah well, at least I can drink over Christmas smile

I'm feeling optimistic too! Been saying to my DH, this time next year I'm going to be pregnant whether I'm one or 39 weeks I don't care but 2016 is going to be the year. Been trying for four years and finally, hopefully getting some help. Fingers crossed for us all!

MillieMoodle Sun 27-Dec-15 09:09:40

Am feeling positive and ready to start the new year now! My resolutions are to get fit and healthy and get organised! Hopefully if I concentrate on that I'll be less stressed out in 2016. Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas smile

MrsKittenPie Sun 27-Dec-15 22:33:19

Hi ladies - glad I've found you. Been ttc since June 2014 so about 28 months. Have ds who was conceived within 5 months so also thought it would be easy this time round - how wrong was I?
My resolution is to be more positive and not obsess as much - have ditched the opks and thermometer- fingers crossed the laid back approach will help.
Really hope 2016 is the year for all of us on here!

eggsinthefridge Sun 27-Dec-15 22:48:03

Hello to all the optimists grin

I'm also getting fit and organised in 2016! Although I started early with the organisation, got 3 black bags of stuff all ready to go to the charity, and pinteresting like mad to find fun new storage ideas!

Sent away a request for a local acupuncture place for their prices and what they offer re. fertility. When January rolls around I will make a gp appointment, and just waiting for AF to arrive to book myself in for my blood tests.

Fingers crossed for us all. Where's everyone else in the journey? Tests? Diagnoses? IVF?

Figgygal Mon 28-Dec-15 08:44:13

I'm 8 days late now think I've just skipped AF for December as had a negative test on Boxing Day Christ knows what that means for next month. I've never skipped before sad

Need to call drs this week for blood test results and go from there

MillieMoodle Mon 28-Dec-15 09:35:16

Hello again

I was all ready to ring the doctors on Tuesday to get an appointment to see what the next steps are after 12 months of ttc. Tested yesterday morning (just after my post on here) just in case, as have quite a lot of evenings where I would be drinking coming up, and got a bfp! It was cd35 and AF is due today but have done another test this morning and still positive. Was totally not expecting that, as tested Christmas Eve and it was negative.

Good luck to everyone, I really hope 2016 (or the end of 2015!) is your year smile

closephine85 Mon 28-Dec-15 09:44:40

Can I jump on this positivity train too please ladies?! And massive congratulations to you MillieMoodle, what a lovely surprise you must have had!!

We have a 4 year old DS and have been ttc number 2 since September 2013. DH has an ultrasound tomorrow and I am having a laparoscopy early next year so hoping 2016 is the year we will finally get some answers and a BFP also!

eggsinthefridge Mon 28-Dec-15 10:33:21

Congratulations Millie! See what positivity can do for you wink!

Welcome aboard closephine Hope the tests go well!

I'd be testing like mad figgy if I were in your position! Here's hoping AF arrives soon so you can get back on it! Any guess of when you ovulated?

Nothing much happening with me so far. I had been using opks for this week, but no positive as yet.

MillieMoodle Mon 28-Dec-15 10:41:25

Thanks both grin

It hasn't quite sunk in yet! With DS I got a very strong positive on cd33 and had had a couple of very strong waves of nausea beforehand so was fairly confident before testing.

This time I had thought earlier in the month I might be as had very sore nipples for a couple of days but all tests were negative. Tested Christmas Eve (before drinking far too much Christmas Day and Boxing Day!) and negative again. Not really sure why I tested yesterday. Habit, I think! Was fully expecting a negative and got a faint-ish positive on an internet cheapie so tried a clearblue and got quite a strong positive. Was on a high yesterday but feeling more cautiously optimistic today. Based on last period I am 5 weeks today grin

well i got the best Christmas present on Christmas eve, my planning meeting for my ivf cycle starting asap, just got to have some blood tests and also waiting for the call from the donor nurse in the first week of January, so excited and relived that all is finally sorted out after months of paperwork and communication problems between the parties involved in my ivf!!
i don't know why but i just have a feeling that 2016 is my year and next Christmas is going to be entirely different from any other year!!

Figgygal Mon 28-Dec-15 14:47:08

Yay congrats Millie

eggsinthefridge Mon 28-Dec-15 15:09:01

Here's hoping the next 9 months go smoothly for you millie!

Fab news goinggrey, it's great when things start to progress. Fingers crossed everything goes to plan in 2016 grin

MillieMoodle Mon 28-Dec-15 15:57:11

Thank you grin

Have got fingers crossed for you all for positive news soon!

Figgygal Wed 30-Dec-15 07:33:36

Apparently (and for the first time in my life) I'm just not having a period this month cd 39 and still bfn. I actually feel ill I'm so stressed that there's something wrong with me. It's completely ruined Christmas just want to get back to work now for the distraction.

eggsinthefridge Wed 30-Dec-15 11:53:05

flowers Figgy

The stress won't be helping things with getting your period! I have such irregular cycles that I never know when my period is coming, and it has been so awful with TTC and there's always a thought in the back of my head that something is wrong, or that I am pregnant (not happened yet). Try and put it to the back of your mind, wait another week and take another test. Hope AF turns up soon!

eggsinthefridge Wed 30-Dec-15 11:55:05

I'm on CD44 at the moment. Hoping that I ovulated a couple days ago, but my luteal phase is so short, I'll be expecting AF next week.

Figgygal Wed 30-Dec-15 14:45:34

Called dr for blood results they want me to go in to discuss I suspect not only did I not ovulate this month I'm having an oestrogen issue. Can't go until Monday gaaahhhh did have some spotting this morning I suspect AF is finally coming.

patch77 Wed 30-Dec-15 15:28:02

I'm going to start 2nd go at ivf late January. Lost our first one was gutted but a new year, new start!
Plus 2 pairs of friends have told us of their new pregnancies. Both of which are due when our little one would be. Onwards or hopefully we can do it ourselves before starting the drugs!

eggsinthefridge Wed 30-Dec-15 17:01:16

Hopefully you get some answers on Monday figgy and you can move forward from there.

Hi Patch, hop aboard the positivity train. Sorry about your last IVF, here's to 2016 and a sticky baby flowers
