@NatGee no u did me a favour, so thank you! โค๏ธ
listen I honestly had given up hope! My fiancรฉ said this is our month I feel it in my bones and I was like ok whatever ๐Ÿ˜‚ then it happened โ€ฆ we have been trying for like 8/9ish cycles so it hasnโ€™t happened fast & I already had the conversations planned with my GP on demanding fertility investigations! what I will say is, I had a smear a couple of days before ovulation so not sure if that has anything to do with it or Iโ€™m clutching at straws, my partner also started taking new supplements this month & I started on vitamin b complex 4 weeks ago. Again could be nothing but itโ€™s worth noting ! Also how ironic we did my partners sperm analysis on 09/02 and the results are due on Friday ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜„

@Matildahoney thank u and welcome, itโ€™s a tough road. We DTD 6 days in a row this month as I had had enough ๐Ÿ˜‚ and wanted to throw everything at it ๐Ÿ˜‡

@NSx it's frustrating, I fell in July without really trying, I came off the pill last Jan, then had an MC in Sept, been trying ever since! Not really stressing about it, just getting to know my cycle & temping. Yeah my OH is worn out ๐Ÿคฃ he was glad to have a night off last night. I'm not getting any younger either so need to get a move on!

@nsx funny how gut instinct works, male intuition might be a thing after all :D We're on our 10th cycle now, including one in which I didn't ovulate so not sure if I should count that? i'd probably be feeling a little more desperate if we hadn't gotten a puppy a few months back. It's a long while particularly when it's such a basic function of our bodies, makes you wonder what's going on?
Itll be worth seeing what your DP's SA is like? I am sure that all that dtd had something to do with it, I am firmly of the opinion that more is more!

@Matildahoney I am too about to enter my tww. We're always waiting eh? Hope this is your month xx

@Matildahoney its very frustrating because everyone kept saying โ€˜oh youโ€™ve just been pregnant you will be more fertile it will happen quicklyโ€™ and it didnโ€™t. While 8/9 and upto a year is classes as absolutely normal, it doesnโ€™t feel that way month after month of BFN you know? โ€ฆ I also temp. That was a thing that caught my attention this month, my temps started dropping way before AF was due, almost as if the pattern was going backwards, as normally it rises and rises until just before AF. I will post my charts for your reference.
@NatGee yes I will be interested to what the SA says. Tbh I was worried I had Lowish progesterone because when I did my day 21 bloods in August it came back as 30.8 now whilst anything over 30 says strong ovulation I felt it was on the lower side, therefore I decided to start vitamin b complex on the back of something I read on here to increase it and I donโ€™t know if that has anything to do with it

@NSx I got the sticky baby the cycle after I stopped taking vit b complex ๐Ÿ˜‚ I was taking it up until then as meant to help with spotting but it didnโ€™t help and my bloods showed my b vit levels were fine.

My scan went really well. Just waiting on my downs, Edwards, Patau risk results to come through (which is 3-5 working days if anything wrong and up to 10 if low risk)! So not telling my daughter u too after that but the NT measurements were great and the nasal bone was looking good so hopefully all ok

@allgoodthings84 fingers crossed for you ๐Ÿคžโค๏ธ im confident all is well. Thatโ€™s where things started to go wrong for me the last time so Iโ€™m terrified of getting to that stage! But if things look good in the scan then Iโ€™m sure itโ€™s all perfect, sending you lots of positive vibes x

@NSx the sonographer at the end said โ€œcongratulations on your baby it looks like a very healthy baby from what a scan can tell us at this stageโ€ so Iโ€™m going to start feeling more positive now.

@NSx ooh that's a good chart, better than the one I have! I'll look at that app, might move all my data over to it & see how it looks. I'll keep temping then! See what happens. Thank you!
I completely agree about everyone's bloody comments! So annoying.

@Matildahoney yes fertility friend is great for temping itโ€™s really good for the charts you start to be able to compare and see patterns. My charts were always following the same pattern as the right one. Rising and rising where as this month it was the opposite so I had a sneaking suspicion something may be happening!
people talk rubbish, I donโ€™t think itโ€™s the same for everyone maybe some people are more fertile for me it wasnโ€™t the case, it took me 3 months the first time around and like 8/9 months second time! X

Thanks for the tag, and thank you all for your advice on the last thread. DH fell asleep on the sofa on Tuesday night anyway so the decision was out of my hands ๐Ÿ˜‚ poor bloke, obviously needed a rest! Now 3DPO and hating the tww already ๐Ÿ˜ฃ
I have been half temping but I keep forgetting and my sleep is so bad at the moment I'm not sure it will be of any use. I found it really useful when TTC my first and had a similar thing as you @NSx so I just knew!
@allgoodthings84 glad the scan went well, fingers crossed the results take their sweet time :)

@Matildahoney As I said I am a little out of practice but I would say you ovulated CD16 - after the peak OPK, and your dotted line should be just above that temp? So dont be surprised if you arent as many DPO as FF is saying...
Does anyone know why all the apps assume you Ovulate the day after peak when it can happen up to 3 days after?

Matildahoney · 16/02/2023 12:02

@TunnocksTCake thank you, my peak was 100% Saturday, barely had a line any other day! I thought you ovulated 24-36 hours after peak, that's what someone on another thread said, I really should read up on it all myself! I'll just keep an eye and see what happens! But DP was pleased to have Tuesday and today off ๐Ÿคฃ he also feel asleep on the sofa last night!

TunnocksTCake · 16/02/2023 12:36

@Matildahoney yes, that was what made me think FF is wrong - it has you ovulating the day before your peak at the moment!
@NatGee that's what I thought! Probably should have carried on another night but oh well!
