I am very excited to finally have someone to talk to about all of this. I don't have a good relationship with my mother and not many girlfriends cause they have all proven to be very unkind. I don't like drama in my life! I'm looking to hopefully have one more child. AF is scheduled for ???. Hopefully I dont see her.
Baby dust to all TTC. ?????? GL?????

Ok here is a good question. What is the best time to make love when ovulating? Morning or night?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 04, 2011, 08:52:01 pm
Mommy2be good question. Maybe others have some insight? From my experiwnce, I always bd (baby dance) at night because of our work schedules. I get BFP's (I've had 6 this way) my prob is getting a healthy bean to stick though. On the flipside, I've heard morning is better and sperm count is highest in the am after a full night sleep!

My husband and I are TTC with a second child. We just started this journey this June. So for a couple months now. I try to not het that excited, or frustrated when AF shows.   Why is that when you try it takes so much longer? With our first one it was like bam you are pregnant. Now we aredoing our part waiting for my body to do it's part. The calender on this app shows my ovulation date today, but I know it could be a bit sooner orlatest. So I am gonna be one busy lady. Lol. Thanks for listening. My son turns 2 in the middle of September so it would be awesome to give my whole family when they are up for his party that we are expecting.
   And I am sorry to those that haven't had the chance to have their angels with them.

And welcome Leathellove! Happy to see you are here! Hope you've been busy BDing since ? is so close ?. When is AF due for you?

Hopefully the evil AF ? stayed away ? for all those due for ? in the last few days! Has anyone tested yet?

Also, in this thread I use so many acronyms, I will be adding to the original post a brief list ? for easy reference! Mommy2be, I will include IUI and IVF in the list.

Question is B50 safe to take while TTC?
I took them a couple of times b4 actually being ttc but im wondering if its okay 2 still  drink them while TTC,
It says " with 100% FOLIC ACID"

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Arianna44 on August 05, 2011, 09:43:53 pm
Puppydoll, it's only ok to take B50's at a lower dose while preg. The dr recommends only a 50% dose as it has been found that higher doses can negatively effect pregnancy.

Missingmyangel, I have a few symptoms. Frequent peeing, smells get to me and breasts are very tender and seem bigger. I will wait until mon to test as will be about a wk after AF due date. Thanks for the ?.
??????? to everyone!

Ok this is whats up. I don't get cramps when I start my period. Yet today I was feeling them. What does that mean. Cause I DON'T get cramps. When AF comes it just comes. It's not due for another 3 days.

Eek! I'm off a day, my bad. AF is expected 8/10. Yes, I've read morning baby dancing is better, higher sperm count (from the what to expect before you are expecting book). My dr has told me best time to conceive is 10-14 days after the 1st day of your period, day 10 seems to be ovulation day. I've been real tempted, to take a test... They keep saying 5 days before ur missed period & I have no patience!! ?

I got my Mirena taken out in June and a week and a half later I started feeling the same thing. That hurt so bad you couldn't even touch th without me feeling like I was gonna cry. It was my first intence AF since before I got pregnant. I don't mean to knock your hopes down but that is a great possibility it's AF. Hopefuly I am wrong.

Missingmyangel, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I've been TTC for a year now n we haven't been successful. I have not experienced the loss of a baby but I can imagine your grief and hurt. And I am so amazed at your positive attitude. I've been depressed for months and I think I can learn lots from you and the other strong ladies in this forum.

Haven't been able to configure the emoji keyboard but here are my updates
Estimated ovulation date 8 Aug
AF 25 Aug
And how do I calculate the date to start testing?

Hey ladies, hope you're all well! I just had a wonderful and relaxing weekend with the fam ? and hope you all got a chance to kick back also! I see there are a few more ladies that have posted info, so I have added you to the list and would like to say Welcome to Princessky & Amy83! I'm excited and happy you posted.

Arianna44, is AF ? still a no show? I'm ??? for you and hope this is your month! Have you taken an HPT yet? Also, Princessky... Have you tested yet? Any symptoms for you?

PuppyDoll, you were having lots of symptoms last I knew. Any updates? I saw you post from the other day and hope you are feeling better.

Amy83, from your post, if I remember right, you are very close to ?...I hope you are doing all the ? "baby dancing" you and the man can handle so you catch that eggy this month!

I know we have a few ladies (Britty11, Mommy2be and AvonLadyAshley) that are approaching the evil ? AF ? soon. Have any of you tested? I'm ??? you all get ?BFP's? and wish you lots of ??? and ? loads of ? dust ??????

To the ladies that had AF ?show this month, I'm truly sorry and I know nothing I say (or anyone else says) will necessarily make you feel better, but I do feel your pain and sadness. I admire all of you for having the strength ? and courage to xontinue in this ? journey! Remember, statistics are even a completely healthy couple doing everything at the right time still only have a 20% chance each cycle. God will ?bless? us when He believes He has created the perfect baby for us!

Wishing you all lots of ??? and ? dust ?????

PuppyDoll, the good news is... Preggo symptoms are a lot like AF ? symptoms especially so early. And having been preggo 6 times so far, I can honestly say I personally never got symptoms until after ? I knew I was preggers! Everyone is different though. The waiting game just stinks! I can say I've know many ladies who swore up and down they were going to get AF ? and then they got their ?BFP? and remember if you are preggo, and you are actually having pregnancy symptoms, they can be on and off. Here one day...gone the next! Baby dust and I hope you are preggo!

Mommy2be, yes your cycle can deffinitely vary. Just remember, the one thing that does not vary really is your LP (leutal phase), so if you are stressed ? or sick ? etc. you could delay ovulation (which in turn throws your cycle days off). So ideally, you want to track your ovulation ? and be familiar with your LP. Does that make sense? It can be a little confusing ? sometimes, but if you still don't know what mean, let me know and I'll try to explain better.

I have had the same problem! AF is 6 day's late and I took 3 HPT and all 3 came back "-"! Fustrating because I have the symptoms of being pregnant! So confusing! I lost my lil angel @ 26 wks pregnant in aug 08! DH & I are not ttc but not preventing it either! Not wanting to get my hopes up, But I am so scared!! Any one else going through this?? Good luck ladies!! ?

Hi everyone, this is my first time posting. Glad to see that I'm not the only one who deals with the ups and downs with TTC. We're trying for our third. Our first son was born 41wks but only lived fr 14hrs. We had our second daughter at 38wks and she is thriving (so there is hope after loss). My prd was due Aug 5, but i took the test That day and it was negative. Now 3 days later I still haven't seen AF. So... Now what? I really don't feel like doing another test to see another minus sign. Do you think I should wait a week?

Welcome Veniana! You and I def have one thing in common...I lost my baby boy at 27wks this last January. I feel your pain and it's hard and at times scary... We decided to keep trying and I got a ?BFP? in July and we were so happy, but it was short lived because we found out a few days later I started spotting. Doc said was okay unless I was in pain and in 24 hrs the pain hit like a ton of bricks. I ended up having emergency laparoscopy when they determined to be ectopic, they removed my right tube and developing baby due to internal bleeding. I was very lucky not to die because everything happened so fast...this was a few weeks ago, so I'm just now starting to feel normal again, yay!! These were 2 of my 5 ? anyhow. It is a long rough road and we are all here to support eachother! You don't have to do it alone?... So when you are ready let me know and I would be honored to add you to our list! Stay strong ? GL  ??? I will ??? for you and sending ?'s of ?dus your way ????

Puppydoll I feel the same way but I think it's too soon for me to tell. Anotherthings is that I have had a lot of a clear discharge which I got when I first got pregnant with my son. So I don't know if that is normal to dischargeor would that be a sign of ovulation?  Thanks all of you foe you posts they help. Good luck to everyone.

I am so sorry for your loss!! It can be so hard to keep positive! I would be honored to be on your list! The last time AF ? appeared was ?/?/??!! According to this app AF ? is now 6 days late! ?!! I have gotten the cramps but no AF!! I have alot of the pg symptoms!   So keeping that in mind all I keep getting is a BFN on the three HPT I have taken! It is now a waiting game!

Baby ? dust and lots of good ? to all ?????

Post by: Amy83 on August 09, 2011, 03:43:22 am
thank you for the warm welcome :)
And that point you highlighted, the 20% chance for conception by healthy couples... That's really helpful... It gives me hope I suppose..hope that when the time is right and when God wills it, it will happen...

To all those experiencing preggie symptoms with your AF delayed.. I pray  ??? this might be your special month ? ?

And to those who have just received news of AF... Hugs... Lets hope for the best in the following month

According to this app my ? is 8 Aug. but according to another fertility app (pink pad) it's not due to come till 11Aug. I've just lost all my previous fertility planning records in my phone which recently crashed. N hence starting a fresh new record.. Thinking of backing up the data on a hardcopy calendar....

And yes missingmyangel.... We are ? baby dancing in this fertile period... Enjoy your  ? baby dancing too! Heehee...

 ? dust ? ? ? ? to everyone!




Hey ladies, hope you're all well! I just had a wonderful and relaxing weekend with the fam ? and hope you all got a chance to kick back also! I see there are a few more ladies that have posted info, so I have added you to the list and would like to say Welcome to Princessky & Amy83! I'm excited and happy you posted.

Arianna44, is AF ? still a no show? I'm ??? for you and hope this is your month! Have you taken an HPT yet? Also, Princessky... Have you tested yet? Any symptoms for you?

PuppyDoll, you were having lots of symptoms last I knew. Any updates? I saw you post from the other day and hope you are feeling better.

Amy83, from your post, if I remember right, you are very close to ?...I hope you are doing all the ? "baby dancing" you and the man can handle so you catch that eggy this month!

I know we have a few ladies (Britty11, Mommy2be and AvonLadyAshley) that are approaching the evil ? AF ? soon. Have any of you tested? I'm ??? you all get ?BFP's? and wish you lots of ??? and ? loads of ? dust ??????

To the ladies that had AF ?show this month, I'm truly sorry and I know nothing I say (or anyone else says) will necessarily make you feel better, but I do feel your pain and sadness. I admire all of you for having the strength ? and courage to xontinue in this ? journey! Remember, statistics are even a completely healthy couple doing everything at the right time still only have a 20% chance each cycle. God will ?bless? us when He believes He has created the perfect baby for us!

Wishing you all lots of ??? and ? dust ?????

Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 09, 2011, 04:18:16 pm
Hey ladies, hope you are all doing fantastic today! Just wanted to check in with everyone. I have gone through all the posts and updated our ? list. If I have inaccurate info listed for any of you, my apologies in advance! Just let me know and I will update as soon as I can.

Barbie601, haven't seen any updates from you lately, I hope you are doing okay!

Arianna44 - is AF still a no show? I know you mentioned an appointment coming up, have you taken another test, or were you gonna wait until you see OB? FX4U ??? this is your ? month! And of course ? dust ?????? to you!

Mommy2be - I know the evil ? AF ? showed yesterday. I'm so sorry hun, it's never easy. I hope you take some time to relax and have a ?take a hot ? and read a good ? - maybe just some down time to not worry about TTC. Let me know if there is anything I can help you with to prep for next month!

Nat12, so excited to have you on board! I'm sorry for your loss ? every loss is a ? but out of that we get stronger ? and it sounds like you are working hard and I hope you get your ?BFP? soon! Have you tested yet this month? GL ? and ? dust to you ????

KayMc56, welcome!!! Your story is heart warming ?and I know it gives me hope and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one. Have you tested yet? Hopefully the evil AF ? stays away ? from you! GL ? and FX4U! And, of course...???????

PuppyDoll, Britty11 and Veniana, is AF ? still a no show? How exciting! Have any of you tested? Any signs or symptoms? FX4U2!!! GL ? and lots of ? dust to you ????

Leathellove, I know extra (or more than usual) discharge ? can be a common sign of being preggers due to hormones! It can be either watery or more like egg whites ? depending on the person. FX this is true for you! lots of ? dust to you ????? and GL ???

Amy, I have been in that boat to where you gotta start tracking all over again...it's a pain. I just wanted to mention that to prevent this, backing up is a good idea, but I bought a cheap date book and just note (can be very discrete if you are using a work calendar) an "S" for AF start, "F" for AF finish, and "O" for approx ovulation. This way if I gain a new app, have to restore and app or just need for quick reference it's easily accessible. Only food for thought ? definitely do whatever works best for you! On another note, have you been having any symptoms? I know it would be kinda early, but even fatigue can be a early sign people don't neccessarily notice right away. FX it's your ? month! ????

AvonLadyAshley, is AF ? still a no show? FX she goes on a 9 month vaca for you! Your symptoms sound promising! I will ??? she stays away?and this is your ? month too! ??????

Princessky, how are you today? You sounded frustrated in your last post...I can certainly understand that! I hate the awful ?WW, it feels like forever and it can be very disheartening to get BFN's. I recommend to everyone I talk to, try and at least wait until AF ? is due or 24 hrs before it, just because of accuracy. Yes, it is possible to get a BFP at 10, 11 and 12 dpo, but if you are testing that early, prepare to get a BFN ? even if you are indeed preggo, because it is likely to early. It all boils down to what you personally can handle. How are you fairings otherwise? I ? you are well and this is your ? month too! ?????

I started getting a bit of light pink spotting-this usually is the warm up to my period so looks like this month is not mine. Oh well, April is a busy birthday month for me, a May baby sounds swell!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 09, 2011, 06:44:58 pm
KayMc56, I'm sorry to hear ? hopefully it's just spotting and AF ? stays away ? Just remember it is still possible until AF shows in full force.  I have my FX4U and ? it's just spotting! If not, we will have to declare war ?? on AF next month and start planning to be sure we catch?to get preggers so AF ? can take a much needed 9 month vaca ?! GL ? Hun!

Seriously why it seems so hard to get pregnant, it seems so simple and easy.you where always told as a kid if u had sex you would get pregnant if u dint use protection, & when ladys actually want to have a baby it seems a hard, ive only tried twice is been 5 month since the last time & i dint fall preggo, and this month we started again & i have such low hopes just bcuz so many women here have been trying for so long :/
One thing that gives me some hope is that ive never used any type of birthcontrol i feel that BC messes u up in a way i never wanted to take them. This post it was just sumthing in my head i felt like letting it out of my chest since according to this app im suppose to get my period today & ive been feeling woozy past 2 days. & nipps been sore and a lil other weird thngs and i just really want this for my huny and i.
i'll end with saying that mayb god really does have a BIG part in all this. And mayb we shouldnt push this so hard.

I know how u feel puppydoll. It's so frustrating! I fell preggers twice while on birth control but miscarried both. And i figured that the powers that be were trying to tell me somwthing. So i started trying! Now I'm actually trying and nothing seems to happen!

Started spotting today?
I think missangel gave some good advice before, it's only spotting right now & it's not full force, there's still a chance?
Arianna44 Good Luck! Puppydoll, oh man do we all know how u feel ? when I miscarried in April, I had to attend a friends baby shower the very next weekend & then a really close friend just had a baby @baby in the beginning of July. It always makes ne think, when is if going to b my turn? ?but then a remind myself of posts like this & knowing I'm not the only one makes a little more at ease. Of course I feel like Marisa Tome in My cousin Vinny though ? keep reminding urself that ur not alone, that's why we're all here.
As for me, 2 more days before AF is a no-show! ?

Update: started some spotting only when I wipe yesterday morning (8/9) got a little heavier by lunch then stopped! No more bleeding till Today. It started up again about 5 am but very light bleeding! No change in amount of blood on pad since then! So not sure what to think! My periods are usually very heavy first three days then very light the last day!! Have many pg symptoms! But not sure if it's all in my head! So confused!!

Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 10, 2011, 04:20:59 pm
Hey ladies, hope all is well! I wanted to welcome Babybelle to the group! We are excited to have you join us!

Arianna44, I know it can be very frustrating. Try to stay strong ? and try not to stress (and I know it's hard not to) because that can make you late ? too! Just remember, some ladies don't get BFP's right off, just due hormone levels. I would recommend you request bloods from the OB. GL ? and FX4U. ???

Veniana and Princessky, like Mommy2be said, the "spotting" you are describing sounds like it could be breakthrough bleeding to me, which can be common in early pregnancy. But if it is and your preggo (FX you are) than you would still want to be checked by your OB - I'm sorry Hun, I couldn't remember if you had tested yet or not... GL ? and I will ? for you and sending ? loads of ? dust your way ???

Nat12 and AvonLadyAshley, how are you both doing? Any signs or symptoms? I'm ? this is your ? month! ??????

PuppyDoll, I agree completely and this is not fair! But... I feel it is how we handle the situation and how we react in our daily lives when tested and faced with challenges that can be so daunting. We are going to be stronger ? in the end and eventually we will all end up victorious ? in our on ways. Don't get me wrong, there have been many days where I have sat and cried ? all day and been short tempered with people because of my own feelings. It can be very hard sometimes not to feel anger ? towards others who have what we want, despite the fact that they have nothing to do with the feelings we are having. This is natural and everyones healing/grief process is different, but like I said already, I feel it is the way we handle and act (or do not act) on those feelings. This whole TTC journey can be heart breaking ? at times. I'm hoping and ? we all get our ?BFP's? soon! Remember this is why we are here together ? and it is a good thing that you could open up and share and I saw a few replies to your post, so I can say comfortably, you are not alone ? in your feelings! GL ? and ? dust Hun ????

Mommy2be, any updates? Thinking of you and hope all is well ?

Well ladies, despite the fact that I was only intending on tracking my cycles for now b/c I'm still healing from the last ectopic surgery...I couldn't help myself ? we baby danced ? the last few days and I got my pos opk yesterday ? afternoon and?pain last night! I'm happy to say I'm in my ?WW! I'm not sure if it's even possible because the ?pains were extremely intense and on my right side (very painful since it was my right tube that was removed.) I have been advised it is rare but possible for the other tube to still be able to catch and host the egg to be fertilized.

I'm very nervous though because now if I do get preggo, I'm already high risk in general... but now, I'm at a higher risk for an ectopic because I've already had one and I don't want to lose my last tube because I would be ? and devastated!

I'm going to try to remain optimistic and pray that some day (hopefully soon) I too will get my healthy ? baby! I'm excited that I'm doing this with such a great group of good natured and kind hearted ladies! I wish you all the happiness ? and bundles of joy ? you deserve! GL ? and ???? to all of you!

Headed home for the night to relax and spend some time with the ?family? and of course do a little BDing ? tonight ? for good measure of course! I will catch up with you ladies soon! ?

When I got pregnant the 1st time it was pretty intense like a knife stabbing me. Now i only have this pain and ive been in bed sleeping alot lately ; i know its too early to tell but was wondering are these signs. Also when we BD'd he lightly sucked on my nipple (only 1) and afterwards i looked at them and both had bumps around the areola. What does that mean ?

Veniana I heard that some woman have what they think is their period but the r still prego. If this is not like ir normal period I woud go get a blood test when it stops.

This is nothing like my regular periods! I think that is why I am so confused!!! I took a HPT and it still "BFN" but I am going to keep my appt for the ob/Gyn! It's just so frustrating!!


Good luck and keep us posted. ??????? ur way.

Hey ladies! Hope all is well, today is looking like a beautiful ? day! Hope the sun is shining ? where you are!

Veniana, I'm so glad you have an appointment and bleeding has stopped! I hope you get bloods ? done and you get your ?BFP? Please keep us posted!

PuppyDoll, I have my FX that AF ? does not come?this month for you! I wouLd say definitely start tracking though. I think it makes the?WW much easier if you are not guessing when AF is due, ya know? As far as testing, it's really all about what you can handle...some women get their ?BFP's? at only 9 DPO, but the percent is very small. The longer you wait, the more likely the test will be accurate. I know some ladies who test every other day starting at 10 DPO.  I don't like all the BFN's or wasting the tests so I wait until AF ? is due or just before, which is what I recommend to other ladies. I think statistically, if you are late for AF, the test is 98% accurate and that is true for almost every HPT. Also, I tell people not to use the tests with ?blue? dye, because they leave an evap line frequently and ladies get their hopes up when it's actually a BFN. Always try to get ?pink? dye (I recommend FRER or the brand Answer), they are definitely more accurate! Hope that helps Hun, GL ? and ? dust ???? 2U!

PinkDancer, how are you doing? I have to say I'm baffled by the pain you are describing... I was thinking ?pains at first, because you should be right around that time, but I've never heard of anyone having them for a week. Maybe though? I'm no doctor, but I just experienced my first ovarian cyst, which was very painful. Do you have a history of these? I found out when I had my last ectopic and it was horrible, but I hope it is not the case for you! Have you asked your OB? If not, I would just incase they want to see you to be safe. GL ??? and hopefully whatever is making you feel this way is nothing major. Lots of ? dust 2U ???

Mum25, welcome!!! I'm so sorry to hear you have an ?, but it sounds like you are really ready to give it another shot. You mentioned you are a few days late, are you testing soon? I will ? this is your month for ?#3! Wishing you the best of luck and of course... ???? baby dust ?

???????????
Leathellove, I so enjoyed reading your post - congrats to you! That deserves a lot of credit, it takes a lot to go back to ? school! I'm still working on finishing college myself, so I can relate! Like you I had my DS in 2005 and I was only half way through college so I had to quit for a while. It's so nice to read about people doing great things with their lives and working hard! It's crazy because I was fairly young when I had my DS and it's funny because he was not planned, but now that we are ready and stable to actually try, it has been such a rough road. I often mourn for my 5 ?'s, but I do have to be thankful for my wonderful boy! I just hope someday I will be able to give him a brother or sister.

Lots of GL ??? and ? dust to you wonderful ladies ?????

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: PuppyDoll on August 11, 2011, 05:03:27 pm
Can I ovulate right after my period?
The answer to this is determined by how many days are in your cycle. For example, if you have a 21 day cycle ( from the beginning of one period to the beginning of another) and you bleed for 7 days, then yes, you could ovulate right after your period. This is because we know ovulation can occur 12-16 days before your next period begins, and this would put you ovulating at days 6-10 of your cycle.

PinkDancer, I see now. Sorry about that and didn't try to make you nervous, just aware if it was something serious. It sounds like?pains to me... Has there been any change? It's kind of like a little pinching feeling on one side of your pelvis or the other. Sorry to hear about your fear of Doctors. I can certainly relate to that to some extent, but I have found the strength to start being a little more trusting. Also, not everyone gets them. I never could feel it before and this was my first time noticing when I?'d and it was because of the surgery. I knew that was what it was also, because I track my cycles so close and have been for a while now. A lot of women never have actual ovulation pain and it is very hard to tell, especially when you are TTC.

The reason being is because we all want so desperately to get preggers, we way over analyze every tiny thing. For example tiredness, dizziness, frequent urination when often times our bodies have other reasons for these symptoms. I used to do it all the time! By the end of my ?WW for the longest time I would pick apart my days. I would be like OMG I went to the ? 3 times instead of once this morning... Is that a sign? And then I'd realize - geez, it was probably all that hot cocoa ? I drank this morning. Or my back bothering me from wearing ? to work! It's not because we try to or even realize it, we just do this naturally. And I'm not saying these symptoms are not happening, but there may be another reason for them. Most women do not get any symptoms until after their ?BFP? (this is because you are not far enough along yet and there is not enough hormone to give you symptoms) and the ladies that do very rarely get anything other than things that would be common to AF ? so its difficult to tell the difference. We call is the TTC Crazies - because it's crazy what we go through while TTC and if we don't go mad in the mean time it's a miracle too! Just some fun tidbits and thought you all might get a giggle out of my ? analyzing ? habits!

Mommy2be, yes it's possible, but unlikely. Before I go any further, I would like to ask how you ladies are tracking your?? Are you all just basing it off this app or averages?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 11, 2011, 06:18:18 pm
Below is some additional info on charting etc. I took this info directly from a medical tutorial:

Fertility charting, as you now know, is largely concerned with identifying ovulation and then using this information to make other predictions and calculations about your cycle. Once you know when (and if) you ovulated, you can decide to take a break from baby-making intercourse, you can tell if intercourse was well timed for conception and you can get the most reliable due date calculation. You can also tell when you can either reliably take a pregnancy test or expect your period.

So, what exactly is ovulation?
Ovulation is the release of a mature egg (ovum) from the ovarian follicle. Each menstrual cycle, several ovarian follicles begin to mature and develop under the influence of pituitary hormones. Usually only one follicle develops fully. While the other follicles recede, this dominant follicle produces an egg which will be released and which can be fertilized. The growing follicle secretes increasing amounts of the hormone estrogen. Following peak estrogen production, there is a surge of luteinizing hormone (LH). The LH surge triggers the release of the mature egg from its follicle. This is ovulation.

After Ovulation
Once ovulated, the egg is picked up by one of the fallopian tubes and begins to travel towards the uterus in the fallopian tube. This is where fertilization, if it is to happen, takes place. The follicle that released the egg becomes known as the corpus luteum after ovulation and begins to secrete the heat inducing hormone, progesterone.

The lifespan of the egg after ovulation is just 12-24 hours, maybe even less. Fertilization must take place within this time frame. After this time frame, the egg begins to degenerate and is no longer capable of being fertilized. This seems like a very short window of time for conception to take place. However, sperm deposited prior to ovulation can survive in the female reproductive tract for a few days, so the few days before ovulation takes place are also considered fertile days.

Ovulation and the Cycle Phases
Ovulation is the event that defines the phases of the menstrual cycle. The phase before ovulation, when the ovarian follicles are developing, is called the follicular phase. The phase after ovulation is called the luteal phase. The length of the follicular phase may vary but the luteal phase length is generally constant from cycle to cycle for the same woman, lasting 10-16 days. When cycles are irregular, it is usually because ovulation occurred earlier or later than usual. Knowing when ovulation occurred allows you to see if intercourse was well-timed for conception and lets you determine your luteal phase length. Knowing your luteal phase length tells you when to expect your period or a positive pregnancy test result.

When does Ovulation take place?
Ovulation takes place, on average, about two weeks before your period, though it can vary from 10-16 days before the onset of menstruation depending on the length of your luteal phase. During an "average" 28 day cycle, ovulation is usually expected to take place between cycle days 13-15. Based on this guideline, many women are taught to expect ovulation around day 14 of their menstrual cycle. Many women, however, do not have average cycles and even those who usually do may see irregularities from time to time.

A typical menstrual cycle may be anywhere from 21 to 35 days according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. Some women even notice cycles that are shorter or longer than this. Ovulation, then, may occur much earlier or later than typical guidelines suggest. For example, ovulation may occur on cycle day 23 during a cycle that is 35 days long for a woman with a 12 day luteal phase while ovulation may occur on cycle day 10 for a woman with a 24 day cycle and a 14 day luteal phase length. This variation among women and from cycle to cycle means that there is really no simple "one-size-fits-all" mathematical formula to calculate your ovulation date without observing your fertility signs. However, it is possible to learn how to identify your own ovulation date and fertile signs by examining your fertility signals.

Detecting Ovulation
Your ovulation date and your time of peak fertility can be detected by charting your fertility signs. This is because our bodies produce signals that can alert us that ovulation is approaching and tell us when ovulation has passed. Fertility signs that indicate that estrogen levels are high and ovulation is approaching (and fertility is high) include observing increasingly stretchy and "egg white" cervical fluid and observing a high, soft and open cervix. Commercial devices such as ovulation prediction kits (OPKs) and fertility monitors can also tell us that ovulation is approaching by measuring the presence of estrogen or luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine. Charting your basal body temperature (BBT) allows you to pinpoint the day of ovulation and tells you when ovulation has passed because progesterone raises the basal body temperature after ovulation.

That's good PuppyDoll! Do you match your symptoms to this app as a guide? How accurate do you feel they are? I'm just trying to get an idea if people might need a bit more help with pinpointing their?date so they are not having to guess what the are considered ? late for AF ?, so any info about how you are all tracking would be good because if people are miscalculating or guessing, they are likely to not conceive. We want to be sure everyone is as accurate as possible!

Like I tell the other girls though...have some "me time" as I call it. See if you can find something comfy ? to put on and pick out a good ? to read after a hot bubble ?. And of course before bed on the night AF ? arrives, I always have a little ? and a glass or two of ?and sometimes even a ? with my hunny! This covers all my guilty pleasures and I feel like I can regroup again and then I take the rest of AF to plan my attack for the upcoming month because it is serious BDing ? time and it is ?? war!

That's definitely good to know PuppyDoll, those dates are not too far off. Four days is way better than a week and a half, and I have talked to women who were that far off because they were using statistics to determine their?date. They were way off and wasted so many months BDing ? at the wrong time! I know it sounds silly, but it really could ?make? or ?break? the deal...

I've been having 3 days of slight spotting which is weird for me. This is my second period since I stopped bf so maybe it's still wonky (but my first was normal).

Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 12, 2011, 01:19:22 am
Ok ladies, this reply is for anyone with questions about?tracking. I know maybe some of you already know some or all of this, but I want to keep it very basic, because I know personally I learn best from a step by step instructions and if anyone has additional questions you're not comfortable posting, just send me a private message and I will do me best to get you an answer (I'll look it up or direct you if I don't know). So here it goes...

So your cycle has 3 phases and can be anywhere from 21 days to 35+ days, but there are always 3 parts. The folicular phase is the first. It lasts until?the the ovulation itself is the second phase. The last is the leutal phase. Generally women are taught to count 14 days before their period to determine when ovulation is. This is NOT something you want to rely on! This is an average for women.

The thing is your cycles may be irregular so the # of days may often vary. This is because certain things can cause delay in ovulation, like stress or sickness etc. The one thing that should remain constant in your cycle is the leutal phase. So this is what you would need to determine if AF is late. You would need to know your ovulation date though. I suppose you could guess by checking cervical mucous and checking cervix position etc. What I recommend are using OPKs. Even if only for one month.

I purchased a months supply and tested from cycle day 8 until I got a positive. I got my positive on cycle day 19. So I know I ovulated of CD19 or CD20. Now, I have an average cycle of 31 days and that cycle happened to be 31 days. So what I did was to measure my leutal phase by calculating the days between ovulation and my next cycle. Basic math (31-19=12) tells me my leutal phase is 12. Hopefully this makes sense. If this does makes sense to you than you now know if you are late for AF (it is due to one of two reasons...you either ovulated later than you thought or you are indeed preggers!)

Now to keep up with this you would need to continue to track ovulation. I use OPKs, but they can be pricey so you could also track using BBT (basil body temp) which only requires dedication and a thermometer. Hint for OPKs, after a month or so, you can narrow down your general week you ovulate to conserve a bit. For example, I only used 5 this month since I knew the general time to start testing. The temp taking info I will post tomorrow because I totally need to go to ? bed! Lol, bet you couldn't tell from my rambling, he he. Love ? to all you ladies! And of course...baby dust to all ?????

AF was due today, hpt was negative. I don't get ovulation symptoms & I rarely have any pms (I'm blessed I guess) & so between an abortion @ 18 & a miscarriage in April, the only symptoms that were the same was nausea. I don't have the same nausea now, it's weird cuz I've only really been feeling icky on my car rides home from work (posted about it previously), but it's also accompanied my a major migraine headache & I rarely experience headaches like this, but that was a few days ago...

Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 12, 2011, 12:39:42 pm
Good morning ladies! I just wanted to post that info on BBT charting. It was taken from the same site as the other information.

How to take your BBT:
It is important to use an accurate thermometer. Both digital and mercury thermometers are effective, however, we recommend using a digital BBT thermometer. A digital BBT thermometer gives a quick reading, beeps when it is finished recording the temperature, and is easy to read. This can make a difference when you are bleary-eyed first thing in the morning. Both digital and mercury thermometers will store your reading, though it is best to enter your temperature immediately or record it on your bedside notepad as soon as possible.

It is best if you can establish a routine where you enter your data at the same time every day just to form the habit so you will not forget. Missing data, especially temperature data can skew the interpretation of your chart. Once a routine is established, taking and recording your temperature will probably start to feel as natural as brushing your teeth.
Some important guidelines to follow when taking your BBT
Your temperature data will be most reliable if you follow these guidelines. Not following these guidelines may make your chart difficult to read and may make detecting ovulation more difficult as well.

Please note that these are ideal guidelines. We recognize that the realities of your life may make meeting these ideals difficult or impossible at times. Ovulation can usually be detected even under less than ideal condition. The closer you can get to the ideal, however, the more accurate and reliable your ovulation detection, analysis and interpretation will be.

Take your temperature before rising in the morning as any activity can raise your BBT.

Take your temperature at the same time every morning.

Take your temperature after at least three consecutive hours of sleep.

Keep your thermometer accessible from your bed so you do not have to get up to get it.

Use the same thermometer throughout your cycle if possible. If it breaks or the battery dies and you use a new one, make a note of it on your chart.

Keep a spare thermometer in case one breaks (especially if you are using a glass thermometer).

If you use a mercury thermometer, shake it down the previous night (or ask your partner to do it).

Temperatures can be taken orally or vaginally but it is important to be consistent throughout the cycle since the temperature range may vary. Most women prefer to take their temperatures orally, however, when temperature patterns are unclear, switching to vaginal temperature-taking for the next cycle sometimes makes the pattern clearer.

Record your temperature soon after you take it (or ask your partner to) since most thermometers only store a reading until the next use. If you have to do something else or want to stay in bed, you can record it later, but we recommend recording it right away when possible to avoid forgetting. You can use a bedside notepad in case you are not able to enter your temperature on your chart right away.

If you must use a heating pad or electric blanket, keep it at the same setting throughout your cycle. Make a note of its use.

Take your temperature before doing anything else including eating, drinking or going to the bathroom. If circumstances arise that prevent you from taking your temperature right away, take it as soon as you are able and make a note of the circumstances.

If you have special circumstances on a temporary or an ongoing basis and you are unable to follow all of the above guidelines, keep temping anyway following the guidelines as closely as possible. Make a note of your special circumstances in the notes section of your chart. There is still a good chance that you will be able to chart and see your fertility pattern.

Enter your temperature and always record the time you took it on your data entry page. The time you took your temperature is also important for the analysis.

Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 12, 2011, 06:25:05 pm
Princessky, how are you Hun? I did a bit of research on the questions you had and this is what I've found... If you have a prolapsed cervix: "This is the result of relaxation of the muscles of the pelvic floor. It is related to heredity and to parity (number of pregnancies). Kegels do help the muscles that support the vagina, especially the band of muscle that encircles the urethra and the vagina.

The baby should be in no danger, but postpartum you could be asked to consider repair at some point. Surgical repair or a pessary are two options, depending on the risk of surgery and on the defect itself. A pessary is a donut-shaped rubber device which fits up against the cervix and keeps pressure upward on it to hold it in place. In younger women, surgery is most often the solution.

Ask your provider if surgery would be recommended in your case, although they may not be able to assess this until about two to six months postpartum.

Continue to replace the cervix, if possible, and try to avoid straining, lifting or heavy exertion. I wish you well with this and hope all goes well in delivery."

As far as the blood type, are you referring to the rH negative rule? I just wasn't sure. I fouls nothing linking to O- specifically though. And as far as being on "the pill" from what I understand that varies person to person. I know some women who have come off the pill and got preggo the very next month and others women it took up to 6-7 mos just to get back to regular cycles. I would guess, if you stay healthy and continue to track your cycles, you should be okay. Wishing you lots of ??? and of course tons of ? dust ?????? Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with or maybe someone else might know more or have some conflicting information that we could research further...?

Arianna44, I have been thinking about you! How did it go at your OB appointment? Hope all is okay! Thinking of you and sending lots of ?????? your way!!

AvonLadyAshley, how are you feeling? Any change in symptoms? Hope you are well and definitely keep us posted!

Nat12, how are YOU Hun? I still feel awful, but after your vacation we will need to come up with a serious plan of ?? attack to be sure AF ? stays ? away! I hope you enjoyed your chocolate too, you deserve a break from this! Keep us posted and I will ??? this next month will be more ??? for us!

Mommy2be and PuppyDoll, how are you ladies doing? Does what I posted aboUt ? and taking BBT make sense? Or do you think I confused ? people too much? PuppyDoll any sign of AF ?? Hopefully not so you can test and (FX ?) get that ?BFP? soon!

Mum25 and KayMc56, how are you doing? I saw that stupid old AF ? came to visit. I'm very sorry to hear! Everyone who gets AF this month... We will have to come together to share ?tips an tricks? so we can all do everything we can to get that much deserved ?BFP?

Missingmyangel I kinda got it. But I think I am going to just relax this month. And try again next month. Maybe if I relax and not stress out my cycle will go back to normal.

Hey ladies I am new here and just wanted to tell a lil bit about myself. I am 29 yrs old I have 2 lil boys Trance 5 and Hayward Jr. will be 2 on the 28th. I had my mirena removed at the end of August last year and since then AF has been very irregular. We have been trying for # 3 with no luck for almost a year. I am currently 3 days late with 3 - hpt's I also have very sore nipples increased cm and my mood swings r horrible. I don't want to get my hopes up because I am scared it's just another late irregular period. I am so sorry this is so long but for those that are still reading thank you. Good luck ladies and LOTS of baby dust!!

So.... Not sure what's going on, I've had salmon pink spotting for 4 days now. It seems to happen mid day or when I move around a lot but not enough to soak up a pantyliner. My prd. Was suppose to be aug 5 and I tested that day and got the infamous one line. Other than that no other symptoms. This is weird for me since I am usually very predictable. I'm not sure if this counts as a period or if I should re-test
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: AvonLadyAshley on August 14, 2011, 12:19:13 am
Well AF is still not here & was suppose to b here Thurs.  2 hpts negative, no unusual symptoms. ? @princess I've never heard anything in regards to a blood type causing complications to miscarry, statistics say 1 in 3 pregnancies end in miscarriage. I was on birth control for 12 years (1998-2010) & was told by the dr & research shows u are  capable of conception the month after stopping the pill. I stopped in sept & conceived in Feb before miscarring in april.  @mamawantsagirl welcome aboard!

Hey, can you add me to your list? Me and my husband have been ttc only for a few months now but I have been keeping track of my period since january. Last period was July 3rd and I have taken 5 negative tests. Have app wth doc for end of the month and last night I took another negative test so I I have lost all hope. When I did the ovulation calculator it says I should be ttc again this week? Could I ovulate even if I didn't get my period last month?

Hey everyone. Haven't really been feeling my self. I've had on and off stomach aches. It could be all in my head but my stomach has been feeling really weird. I have a bloated feeling going on and it also feels kind of bubbly. I've been gassy and burping and such. Ive been very moody lately too, like i can get angry at the drop of a dime and then The next min i could be laughing. For example my hubby said he was tired and i got soo angry :( i feel bad for how i was acting . Also i've been really tired even though I get my 10hrs of sleep everyday. My left breast is sore and tonight I had major CM. Alot came out and I thought I wet myself on accident. Don't wanna get my hopes up but are these signs ?

Hey ladies, hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Today is a ? day here, so it's a good day to be inside at work... I don't say that very often, lol.

So I'm going to update as much as I can on our list, but if you have started ? AF ? or gotten a ?BFP? definitely let us know, so I can make a note of it!

I wanted to say ?WELCOME? to Mamawantsagirl & Mjfaheymomma! So glad you both found this thread, all the ladies here are fabulous! Mjfaheymomma, when was your last AF ? due to arrive? Are you a full month ? late? Just trying to get a better idea of the situation to give you the best advice I can.

So KayMc56, I would def retest Hun! That sounds very promising! You too PinkDancer! I will ? and keep FX for you both. GL ? and ? loads of ? dust to you both ??????

Leathellove, how are you? Exciting to be in the?WW. I to will be in?WW in just a few days ? - have you been able to fight the urge to poas? It's been hard for me, but I'm not going to test until day AF ? is due and thats assuming she is on a much needed 9 month vacation!

PuppyDoll, how are you? Are you still spotting? So this is the thing... implantation bleeding is a real thing, but is not very common (although some women do experience it) but there is no way of knowing if that was what it was until you get a ?BFP? so this is what they say about it... "take note, mark it on your calendar and time will tell." The other issue is, if it does occur, it can be anywhere from 6 DPO to 17 DPO, so unfortunately the only way to know is if you get a ?BFP? vs the evil ? AF. I wish I had a better answer for you Hun, but I'll keep my FX for you and ? that it is implantation bleeding! GL ? Hun, have you taken an HPT lately? Sending ? dust your way ?????

Anyone else have any updates? Also some of you ladies who were on ? reboot, should be almost approaching ?again, so definitely let me know when your next AF is due at least. GL ? to all and tons of ? dust ???????

Nurse practitioner said wait a week see if AF ? comes if not do another HPT if neg come back in 2 weeks and we will do a blood test! This waiting game is very frustrating!! She also said that the spotting I had could have been AF ?!!! She said to wait and see what happens in the next week or two!!

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 15, 2011, 06:42:36 pm
Mommy2be, thanks for the info, The ? was updated. I'm really sorry, but I can't give you advice on the nipple thing... It sounds very annoying ? and quite bothersome. I can honestly say I have never experienced anything like it. Maybe some of the other ladies might have some ideas ?on causes and/or remedies for this! If not, let me know and I will look into it further. Have you mentioned this ? to your doctor at all? GL ? and keep us posted! ????

Veniana, I'm so sorry you are having these troubles. Why would the doctor not order a ? blood test? That all sounds silly and a bit unfair. Just remember that spotting could have been implantation bleeding. It sounds like technically you really haven't had AF ? so I would guess you are safe for now. I have heard some women due not get ?BFP's? until they are 8-12 wks preggo, so maybe you just dont have a supper high Hcg count... I'm so sorry this is dragging out for you. I will ? this is your lucky ? month. Hugs and sending ? of ? dust to you ????

Post by: Leathellove on August 15, 2011, 10:31:10 pm
Yes MissingMyAngel I am trying to fight the erge to test.  I wanna wait until 2 days after AF is supposed to be here.  I just hate the fact that AF symptoms are so simmular. It makes it so hard to tell what is going on. But I will not be let down to bad if AF does come because we have only been trying since June. I pray AF doesn't show for you.  FX, GL, and Baby Dust.

Nat12, you're right. From what I understand it is possible, but pretty uncommon. What you wanna do is track your?and your cycles to figure out the best time for you to ? conceive. GL ? and of course ? dust ?????

Leathellove, thank you Hun, you're so sweet! You are one strong ? willed ? chicka! I usually cave and poas a day before ? AF ? is due! You are right though, signs are very similar, which stinks! I try to just expect the worst (?BFN?) and hope and ? for the best (?BFP?) which I would be over the ? with happiness!

I used to have a similar problem, completely unrelated to pregnancy. My aereola was so itchy I wanted to knaw it off. The skin also started to peel like a suntan. Keep moisturizing it everyday, aloe Vera or non-scented lotions, the less alcohol in it the better.

Hi ladies,
I'm new to the forum. My husband & I have been ttc since April. I had been on bc for 10 years prior to that. My last cycle was 6 weeks which was quite out of character. I had several strange symptoms which I normally don't have and was convinced I was pregnant. AF came on the 31st of July. Is it possible that I am imagining symptoms because I want to get pregnant so bad??? Just wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences???

Thanks for the updates ladies! Hope everyone is well today! If any of you (who recently got AF ? know when your next cycle is due... or any ladies listed as "late ?" who either got a ?BFP? or the dreaded ? AF?furans updates please lete know, thanks!

Patiently waiting, you get your?date by tracking your cycle and signs. I use opks to predict, you can temp chart which really pinpoints?to the exact day or just check your cervical mucous (this is helpful, but I recommend doing this along with temp charting ? or opks and not relying solely on these observations) and cervix position. Hope this helps and if you have any further questions, feel free to ask. The ladies here are kind, understanding and very knowledgeable. I will try to help the best I can too!

? KayMc56, how are you doing? I'm thinking of you! When you get your due date please let us know and stay in touch if you can! BTW, I never asked you your story about getting preggo... I'm sure all of us would appreciate knowing how you did it and any tips or advice. ?Congrats again!!

Babybelle, anytime if you need to chat let me know... It's very hard TTC without support. Anyhow, you get your?date by tracking your cycle and signs. I use opks to predict, you can temp chart which really pinpoints?to the exact day or just check your cervical mucous (this is helpful, but I recommend doing this along with temp charting ? or opks and not relying solely on these observations) and cervix position. Hope this helps and if you have any further questions, feel free to ask. You can use the app, but I never recommend it because it uses averages and I know it is fairly accurate for me, but other ladies were using dates from this app and found ou later it was more that a week off from their?date. The only way the were able to do this was by using "scientific methods" such as temp charting etc. So I personally do recommend it at least for a few mos until you're completely comfortable with identifying the stages of your own cycle. You will likely be amazed once you start to really get to know yourself... ? I definitely learned a lot tracking and still track and am continuing to learn and I love it! GL ? and hope that helps. Baby dust to you ?????

I've been charting my temps for about a yr or longer, last week I had open laparoscopy to see what if anything was going on and my dr found moderate endometerios and lasered it off...he seems pretty confident it will happen this cycle!!

Hey thought this was interesting-My friend charted her cycle for a year before TTC and she told me a trick to getting what gender baby you wanted (she really wanted a girl). If you have sex on the date of ovulation or the day before you are more likely to have a boy because the sperm containing the Ychromo swims faster BUT if you have sex farther away from ovulation you will have a girl because the girlie sperm are more resilient and can live in the uterus longer. Not sure if it's true
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 17, 2011, 06:28:24 pm
Welcome Star101, so excited you could join our thread! hopefully thos is your month! I just had the same procedure, but it was due to an ectopic so they removed my tube. FX for you, lots of ? and tons of ? dust ?????

KayMc56, this is very true! I have not mentioned it, because I have no preference (boy or girl) but ghanks for mentioning so those who are interested can have the info!

?FYI - this information is fairly accurate based on the research I've done, however it is not in my words. I took this information from another post in another forum that I belonged to.

???????????
So...If you believe in Gender Swaying here are some or the mad ? and wacky ways to sway the odds in our favor for a ???.

????For a girl????

?Calcium and magnesium tabs
?High acidic and calcium diets
?Stop BD about 2-3 days before ovulation
?Favor missionary/spooning position
?Avoid orgasms (I know torture)
?Lime baths & douches (optional)
?Have Hubby wear tight undies
?Hot showers/bath before BD

????For a boy:????

?High sodium/potassium diet.
?Deep penetration when BDing.
?Alkaline PH.
?Orgasium your heart out.
?BD only day of or just before and after ovulation.
?Give hubby to have a shot of caffeine or 2 before BD.
?Wear boxers instead of briefs.
?Before BD cool showers.

Amongst many more wacky things... Please feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to get you an accurate answer!

I dont believe in these thingys.
Cuz why would u tell ur hubby to wear tighter undies when thats a bad thing?
All i read once about this was that having sex b4 ovu. And having sex after ovu. Shows whut gender ur baby will be. I forgot wich way it was.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 17, 2011, 07:25:43 pm
The reason for all of this is just to sway the odds not guarantee though. It is to manipulate the sperms environment. For example the "girl" sperm have a better chance of survival based on the ph balance in the womans vagina... Hence the reason for a lemon bath etc. Like I said I don't follow it because I don't care if I get a boy or girl, but there have been studies on these.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 17, 2011, 08:01:36 pm

Hey im new to this post. I have been reading it for a few days and thought i should post. My DH and i have been TTC for a couple of months now but nothing yet. I thought i was last month coz i was having all these symptoms. I was upset when ? AF came but the next day i was thinking it wasnt our month. It was a weird AF though. It went for 4 days then started ending like normal but then DH and i BD and the next day it was like it was starting again then the next 2 days it stopped. Coz of this im confused what it was and when i will ? again. I really hope this month is ours and ? to everyone else TTC.

Mjfaheymomma my bff had the same thing. She did numerous tests. Her hpt didn't show a BFP until she was 9 weeks. Because she kept getting BFN's she didn't bother doing to doc as she assumed her cycle was messed up from being depressed about BFN. So so you never know. GL!!!!!

Congrats to those who have gotten BFP. Yay!!  I believe AF is going to show on time like this app says. My face is breaking out, I  very irritable, horrible headaches, lower pelvic floor pain, and light tenderness of the breast. Hope I am wrong, but I truely doubt it.
Thanks to everyone for your wisdom and addvice. Xoxo

Thanks girls... Yeah Af was 5-6 days late. Then I finally got it... It lasted 8 days only finished last nite. When I got up this morning I stil felt bloated so just decided to waste my last test. It was a BFP... I had already tested 3 times  b4 they were all negative... We've only been trying since mid June so stil in shock.

What a fabulous morning! I come on and discover a bunch of ladies have joined us in the ? journey of ? TTC! How exciting, so I'd like to say welcome to Shelzy88, Beebees, and Crystal;) and we are excited to have you here! I am sorry for your losses, it is always an awful ? thing to happen! Beebees, I have your info, but Shelzy88 & Crystal;) dobyou know when your next AF ? would be due or have an estimated?date so I can add you to the list? And Shelzy88, they say to count from your first full day of flow. So if I were you I would still use your first day as cd1 even though there was a break and it sounds like that is uncommon, but of you really feel concerned, I would call your OB and ask to be seen!

??????????? Woo hoo! Another BFP and a huge congrats to Princesky!! Wishing you  a happy and healthy 9 months! Please keep us posted! Also, I'm sure we would all love to know your story...did you BD every day? Did you use any aids etc? Anyhow congrats!!
???????????

Mjfaheymomma, I agree with Patiently waiting. I've heard many ladies get BFN's until several weeks into pregnancy. I will keep FX ? AF stays away and you get your ?BFP? soon!

Leathellove...you and I both have a lot of the same symptoms! For me unfortunately, they are also symptoms of AF ? so hard for me to tell. Hopefully she stays away ? for both of us! GL ? and I will ? for us both to get ?BFP's? soon!

Mommy2be, that is great ovulation info and some good tips! ??? Thank you so much for sharing!

Arianna44, I'm so sorry to hear. I'm no doctor, but I've been at this a while so I'm fairly familiar with symptoms and such and to me it sounds like PCOS. Did your Doc happen to mention anything about it? Below is a link withbsome great information about it. I might be way of the mark but, its great reading either way. Please keep us posted and I ? this is something that can be fixed easily, whatever the problem is... Baby dust to you Hun ?????

Hi everyone. This is my 1st post. I've been reading for days and decided to join in. DH & I are ttc. I was on Depo for many years. Then spent the last 2 years on loestrin24fe. I stopped BC all together in May. No AF ? until i saw my GYN. She gave me rx prometrium for 10 days. Shortly after AF arrived and I thought she was moving in. I finally got to see her leave! And have been charting BBT this month. This app says AF is due again ???. If my body is telling the truth, I prob ?'d on ???. Not sure about any signs or symptoms because nothing is regular yet. Thanks for reading. I am just looking for a little support in trying to figure this all out.  Sending out much ???? and support  and a lot of ?  you all.

According to this ovulation chart this is our only month I'll be fertile until Christmas break. My fertile days were august 13,14,15 ovulating aug 16. We were intimate august 12,13&14. Hope all that baby dancing did the trick. ? currently ?ww. Af is due ????   Not sure when I'll test yet :)

I think I got couple pains.. I no I got no cramping at all which I thought was weird and no pimples either.. I did another test when I got home it tells u when u conceived aswel.. It was positive and had 2-3.. And that's round when I ovulated

Good morning ? ladies! So excited we have more ladies joining us! I want to welcome both Aep511 and Alexus mommy to our thread! I have added you both to the original post and can't wait to hear more from you! Shelzy88, I updated yours also. Please don't hesitate to share stories or advice and any questions or concerns you may have. I always try to answer all questions and those I am not sure of I do my best to research and get back to you!

Mommy2be, I definitely have my FX4U!! I hope this is our ? month and AF ? stays ? away!!! I also added you to the?WW list, so we are on the count down!

Patiently waiting, how are you? To answer your question, to my understanding... You can use a regular digital thermometer, but the bbt thermometers I think are a bit more accurate and give two decimal reading's opposed to one. I've seen them in stores where they sell family planning products and they are not expensive...like $8.00 - $10.00. Hope everything else is going well! GL ??? an of course ????

Princessky, I'm thinking of you!!! I'm so sorry and my heart is breaking ? for you. I hope everything turns out well for you. I will ? extra hard that your little bean sticks! If it is any consolation Hun, despite the fact that my last pregnancy was ectopic...I had 3 BFP's at home and the doc's gave me a test and it was a ? BFN. It was due to the fact that I was so early and they tested me later in the day when I was hydrated, so they may have just tested at a bad time honestly. I went back and got my ?BFP? a few days later when my levels were higher. GL ??? and lots of baby dust to you ???????

I forgot to mention, for those who have not noticed, I changed the format of the original post ? and any feedback on how it ? looks (or regarding the function of it) would be good. This is only due to the fact that our list is growing so fast ??? I thought it may be easier to do it this way. Thoughts on improvement are welcome! Thanks ?

Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 19, 2011, 06:33:07 pm
Mommy2be, unfortunately, no... I have no confirmation of anything yet. I'm still in my?WW, but I actually have a tiny feeling that I may be! ?Warning? TMI factor... But since I have been preggo six times now, I am fairly familiar with my true symptoms and signs. I noticed yesterday (at 9 DPO) that my sinuses were bugging me (still are a bit today too) and that is a huge thing that always happens when I get preggo. The TMI part is I have noticed today heaps ? of ewcm... And I mean when I went to go pee earlier, it was like basically coming out of me and I needed to wipe extra! Gross ? I know, sorry! I even used an opk because I was worried that I may have messed up on my?date even though I got a pos opk a week and a half ago! Opk came up negative, so I think I did in fact?when I thought. These would normally all be huge signs for me, but I'm not getting my hopes up because I know after ectopic and miscarriage your cycles can change. Plus if I am preggo I will be rushing to the doc to get bloods ? drawn and confirm it is not ectopic again! Guess it's just the waiting game now... I'm gonna try to wait to test until as least Monday (day b4 AF ? is due) but the urge to test is so strong, lol. I hope I can resist it ? GL ??? and ? dust to all of you lovely ladies ????

Post by: Crystal;) on August 20, 2011, 07:40:55 pm
Hi srry it took so long to respond to your questions. I'm new to this forum and try to figuring out how to navigate. Anyways last AF was 7/27/11. I been using OPK and it says I ovulated the 14th -16th according to OPK. So not sure if a person really ovulates for that long.. So I guess I'll just wait to see if AF shows or not. I hope she doesn't ;( I really want a baby. All my family and friends keep asking me when or why I don't have any kids and it's so depressing to hear them ask. Anywho I just try to stay positive.. I think ur forum is a great support system. Srry for the long message. Baby dust to all

Hello new ladies welcome :)
Umm my period lasted around 5 to 6 days um and ive been feeling very very slight pinchy feeling my left and right ovaries more on the left tho, & i ovulates that side last cycle, im confused bcuz idk if its that im ovulating early? Or whut. I mean ussually when i ovulate the pinchy feeling is more of a bloated feeling on my left or right ovarie like it feels it can pop any momment specialy when i pee. So could that be a cyst?!

I'm sorry to hear the bad news Princessky. This was obviously not the one this time around. Just got a question to anyone who doesn't mind sharing... How often do you bd??? I know this is a very personal question and you don't have to answer. My dh works shift work he does 2 weeks of day shift followed by 2 weeks of nights so I only see him every fortnight with the exception of weekends. It's very hard to get timing right when we don't see each other all the time.

Hey ladies, hope you are all fairing well! I did not check in this weekend, so I had some catching up do do. I want to welcome Nthbrissygirl, Gcervan and princess.emma84! Im sorry for your losses, but am certainly glad you are on board with us! For those of you that provided dates already I have added you to the oficial TTC ? list. If you did not give me dates you are listed under need more info. Crystal, I have added you to the?WW list and estimated your AF ? date to be about ?/?? based on the info you provided so if things change just let me know. If anyone needs help with calculating dates, feel free to PM me and I will try to help you the best I can!

I know unfortunately a few of you got the evil ? AF ? over the weekend and I'm so sorry as sad ? and heartbreaking ? as it is, it obviously means your PERFECT ? baby was not ready this month. I hope if you have not already had your "me time" as I call it (have a good ? cry, take a hot ? tub, start a good ? book, top the evening of with a ?or two and a big piece of ? something delicious) then do so asap!!!  This is so we have time during AF ? to plot and plan because September we will declare ???? WAR to ensure we catch those ? and the evil ? AF ? goes on a much needed vacation...for 9 months!!!

I know some ladies have said they may be taking time off from TTC, so I just wanted to say I hope you find you way back to us and if not, lots of ???, ??? and of course... ? dust ?????

Leathellove, I was so bummed out when I read your last post about AF showing... I'm so sorry! I'm not sure yet... I feel like AF may be coming. I broke down and tested at 12dpo, I got a bfn... DUH!! I get so impatient sometimes. Now I'm wondering if my sinus issue (I was thinking pg symptoms) may just be a common cold ? along with the trouble sleeping and the ewcm ? has been not as "abundant" as before this weekend, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see...lol, the crazy ? ways we think while TTC!

Mommy2be, not sure what the pain is you're experiencing, anyone have any ideas?

Patiently waiting, I can say (for me personally) during fertile week which I count 4 days before?, the day of?and two days after?we ? BD every day. From what I understand, that's Fine as long as DH has no fertility concerns (ex. Slow swimmers or low sperm count). If that's the case they usually recommend BD every other day to give the BMJ good volume and quality ? when the deposit is made. You definitely want to time it as close to?as possible. Now, I'm very aware that people can have hectic schedules etc. so I say I just say to that "relax and do what you can." If you over-stress it, it will be more difficult and can mess your cycle up, so try to keep it as fun and relaxed as possible ? That's what I have learned and personally experienced. Would love to hear from others who are comfortable sharing though!

I am so sorry to hear about your loss @princessky I just wonder how far along u were as when I miscarried in April @ only 6-7 weeks, it was the most excruciating pain I have ever been in. And remnants were in the toilet that day (sorry if tmi). I hope they have advised u accordingly if u really did miscarry. But remember & know u are not alone as u can see by these posts ?
@patiently waiting could lots of bd'ing really be a bad thing ?
Well update on me, 1st 2 hpts (1 5 days b4 expected AF day & 2nd on that day) both negative, 2 more since then, both positive! Going to the OB tomorrow to check for sure. No extreme symptoms, my equilibrium feels off, car rides with the AC kicking seems to set it off. I think missingmyangel posted some helpful hints & one was to hangout in bed for a bit after bd'ing, along with that, elevate ur butt. Put a pillow under ur tush a chill there for like 15 min.I did that & conceived in Feb (when I miscarried in April) & did that last month too ?Lots of luck & ???? baby dust ladies! ??

My husband and I have been TTC for a while now... just over a year I believe. I am now two days past my expected AF date and usually regular!  I took a HPT and it came back a BFN. I have been having minor cramps in my lower abdomen as well as along my right side. They never last very long and most times (and I know this is TMI) its just a little poof of gas. Not really sure what to think!  Baby? dust to all ????

I am new to this ttc business, my partner and I have been NTNP for a few months, but have now decided to start trying. According to this app I o'd on friday, and AF is due on the 6th, so I guess I'm on my 2ww and it is KILLING me not knowing!! GL to everyone out there xx

Hey everyone ; it's been a while since I've posts any info. 4 more days till AF shows it's face. I really hope it doesn't. I've been feeling bloated but last night the hubby and I had sex and I wa in excruciating pain in my pelvis area. Like I was crying afterwards "/ but it went away after 20mins; it was soo weird. I just want my baby :(

Wow...so much catch up to play! Before I even welcome newcomers...

???????????
A huge CONGRATULATIONS to ...AvonLadyAshley who got a BFP - Have a happy & healthy 9 months!!
???????????

Now, I can say welcome to 137wife and Moon_dancer! I have already added you both to our TTC ? list. I'm so glad you both could join us in this ? journey!!

?Reminder? your name may be listed under "need info" if I don't have your updated cycle information. I try not to miss anyone, but if you gave me info and I have yet to update it a reminder would be great and I'm sorry ? if I overlooked your post ? and if you would like your name removed at anytime (please don't feel pressured or like you have to give a reason) just send a PM to me. 

PuppyDoll, good to hear from you! Sounds like you have a great plan and I wish you the best of luck ??? and baby dust ????

Princess.emma84 and PinkDancer, I will keep FX and ??? for you too! Hopefully you guys and PuppyDoll can start off our ?September Star? BFP list... How exciting!!

Leathellove, thank you for your kind words and wishes. It makes me feel like I am not in this alone. I wish the best for both of us this next month because AF ? has not shown, but I tested another bfn ? this morning and if I was preggo, I know I should have at least a faint line. I am going to turn my attitude around though and get amped up for AF to show because that will be my ?new beginning? because I'm sure this last miscarriage threw my cycles off...humph! But I have a brand ?new? opk system I'm dying to try. I usually use CBE digital (totally recommen these) with the ? smiley face, but I'm trying out the new First Response digital ("Yes" vs. "No") and I'll let you all know how it goes! Cheers ? to September and making ?May/June 2012 Babies?

Mommy2be, how are you? Do you have any other signs of?? Keep in mind this app may be slightly off, so just keep your ? for signs of?! Also, I apologize, but I don't quite understand your question... If you would rather, feel free to PM me if someone has not answered your question already ? GL ??? and baby dust ????

Princessky, how are you doing Hun? I have added you back into the list, but don't feel like you have to jump right in unless you are ready... ?WARNING TMI FACTOR  FOR SOME? The only better thing I can say about mc'ing early is that it is physically not as traumatic as being like 10-14wks. It will likely be a heavy period ? and moderate cramping. I can only speak from personal experience, but I've had a bunch of 'em unfortunately. You are likely not going to see "anything" pass this early... Some women are very insistent that they saw something they believe was a fetus etc. But realistically... Even at 7-8wks along your baby is about the size of a small pea (when it "passes" it would be very unlikely to see unless you are straining all of the matter in like a medical strainer for like a kidney stone). And 4-6wks it's the size of an appleseed...you will likely have heavy bleeding, some small clots and sometimes, yes, maybe some large clots. Everyone is different and I'm just telling you this because I don't want you to be afraid. I know for me it was the emotional attachment that was hard. Trust me I looked and analyzed what was coming out of me in desprate hopes for some clue or answer...These women I'm not saying in any way intentionally dishonest, but maybe just trying to hold on to their baby in their own way and maybe a way of closure. A miscarriage is the ultimate insult to a women and no matter how far along you are, it is never easy and is a horrific experience! Also, just because you won't necessarily see anything does not mean is will not be painful at times and uncomfortable, scary, sad and ? traumatic. I'm so sorry Hun! On top of all that, like you said...you still have hormones in your body (most of that will slowly decrease) and your Dr. will likely monitor your levels to be sure all tissue has passed and Hcg levels have gone back down to zero. This is different for everyone. For me, after everything passed this last time, my symptoms went away fairly quick. It may take only a few days to a week or maybe a little longer. I feel so awful for you Hun! It brings tears to my eyes ? because I'm remembering how awful it feels! Just my own rule of thumb I try to share is... don't TTC until you are emotionally able to handle another loss ? should God forbid it happen again.. I don't mean for that to sound so awful, but to be a precaution. My thoughts are still with you and your family and I hope you have a ?good supportive? family and friends and I will be around too if you have questions or just need someone to chat with!

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 23, 2011, 06:44:43 pm
Hun, I'm not sure...I'm kinda grabbing at straws, but I would say one of two things. It's either legitimate growing pains...or if you?'d earlier than you thought, could be cramping from implantation. Which would be great cause it would mean you should be preggers and test positive in a week or so if that's the case. I would say if it doesn't go away soon or if you start feeling like it's getting worse...I would call your doc. If for nothing else, get some reassurance everything is okay!

Hello everyone :) I'm new to this app/forum; still trying to figure it out! My husband and I have been NTNP for a long time. I was on BCP for 3 years, got off of them & ever since then I've had troubles getting AF on my own. I'd go months, or a full year without getting one.. I got tested for PCOS but thank God my ovaries normal! And all of my bloodwork came back normal (my blood sugar, cholesterol, prolactin levels) I'm overweight and definitely thought I had that without a doubt. My doc thinks it's my hormone levels--I have more testosterone than I'm supposed to...anyway, I'm exercising and dieting and i finally got my first period again in about 4 months lol so I was actually EXCITED about that!!! I just stopped Sunday and I'm praying and praying I either get pregnant this time around or AF shows up next month:) well sorry to bore anyone...congratulations to alll the mommy to be's :))!!! Must be such a wonderful feeling!!!

I've been getting a weird pulling sensation in my lower left abdomen. I am 5dpo, it has been niggling for the past 2 days with occasional cramping also. I had an internal ultrasound in May as i was having pain in my bladder. Doc said that ovaries and uterus looked fine so it can't be a cyst or anything sinister. AF is due 14 days. Could these be early symptoms???

HBarbie601 wishing you lots of baby dust this month :)

Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 24, 2011, 03:22:48 pm
Good morning ladies, the ? is shining here and it looks like it's gonna be a nice one! Hope the same for where you are!

Welcome aboard to mommaMia88 & Pinklady11 - I have added you both to our official TTC ? list, so whenever you get a chance, just let me know your dates and where you are in your cycle!

Nat12, to answer your question, you usually ?"around" the same CD each month. It's rarely exact, but ?can be delayed by stress, sickness, etc. Hope that helps ? FX for you this is your ? month! Baby dust ??????? to you!

Mommy2be, I'm so glad to hear you talked to your Dr! How are you feeling today? Oh, I wasn't sure what you meant by the egg lasting 3 days... Were you talking about after ovulation? If so, is that what your Dr told you? I'm just wondering, because I have been unable to find any research about it, but that's very interesting. Everything I've found concludes after 24 hrs, the egg starts to be reabsorbed into the body if unfertilized. Either way I would not recommend trying to catch the egg after you have ?'d because whether it's 1, 2 or 3 days, you are still gonna have a better chance trying before ?and day of ?. FX we catch that eggy this month!! GL to us ? and baby dust ???????

MommaMia88, so glad to hear you got AF ? because now you can start fresh! I'm waiting for AF also... I'm officially late now but have had 2 negative HPT's, so I'm sure my last ectopic messed up my cycle ? so hopefully she shows soon! GL ? on your health kick! I should prob do the same, I'm not overweight at all, so most people just assume I'm totally healthy when in fact I eat horribly, don't exercise enough and should be sleeping better...I attribute some of that to stress but... I cook great dinners and buy health food for our family, but I have a really bad habit of eating crap and I could scale back even more on my caffeine intake for sure! Kudos??? to you for taking the reins - that is awesome!! What are your dates for AF? I added your name to the list, but wasn't sure which list to put you on. Was nice to hear some of your story and truly hope to hear more from you! GL ? and baby dust ??????? to you!

HBarbie601, don't give up Hun? I understand your frustration, as we too have been trying for years! You will get your precious little ? bundle, when the time is right. If you feel you need a break take one! I know so many women who got frustrated, stopped charting, threw out their opks and took a vaca from TTC and came back the next month and said... "I stopped trying an it just happened!" I'm not saying for sure it will, but sometimes a vaca is necessary! Also, have you talked to you Dr yet about fertility? Maybe there are some options as far as testing to get you more info? Lots of baby dust ????????? to you!!

Patiently waiting, good to hear from you ? hope you're doing well! I have heard of some ladies who associated a pulling sensation shortly after ? with implantation... I have not experienced it personally, but it sounds to me like a good sign, especially if you are 5dpo! Maybe some other ladies have some ideas? GL ? and sending lots of baby dust ??????? to you!

@princessky I knew it! I'll be honest, & tmi, I was in grand jury duty when I started miscarrying & had to drive myself home. I consider myself to be a pretty tough bitch, tattoos & piercings, & the pain I was in was nothing I had experienced before. OB told me it wasn't going to b just mild pain & they wanted to do a dnc but I really just didn't want to pay for it ($250 with insurance) & so Iet it pass on it's own. There was so much blood & u can only imagine how bad the car ride home was. There was nothing to visually decipher in the toilet but it was more like just a clump of blood tissue or something like that, maybe the size of a golfball all together.
So I went to the OB today & had my 1st sono, no ?beat yet. Sono tech says I must be less than 5.6 weeks since that's the typical timeframe for a ?beat to be heard. Next appt is a week from today (8/25) & so I'm praying there is a beat next week, otherwise I'm doing this all over again ? Lots of luck to the rest of u out there ??????

Missingmyangel still have those weared pains down there. They go from hip to hip and across the small of my back.  I have a little problem when I have to test. U see I me and hubby live with my parents ( know I am 27 and still living with my parents). My mom and dad don't know that I might be preggo. I am trying to keep it quiet till I know for sure. The thing is we will be camping at the Straberry Festival near Ysemity when I need to test. If I test before we go do u think it will be to soon. AF is do ?/?. We leave 8/31 and come back 9/4.

Post by: MissingMyAngel on August 25, 2011, 08:50:18 pm
Mommy2be, no worries, nobody has business passing judgment on where you live. If you were a teen trying to go behind your parents back, I would enourage you to rethink your choice...but you're not ?

As far as testing... If you have no way of sneaking in a test while you are there, I would saw the best alternative is to try b4 you leave (keep in mind that would be super ? early and may get a false negative ?) and/or as soon as you return ?... Sorry Hun, I wish I had a better answer for you. GL ??? though and of course... A few ? loads of baby dust ???????? to you!!! Xx

Thank you so much missingmyangel for adding me! My DH and I have been talking about TTC for 6 months now but finally decided that this was a decision we wanted to make. Just after we decided we would TTC my sister-in-law(who religiously took her birth control pills) surprised us by saying she's 5 weeks pregnant. I'm super happy for her but also was a bit concerned because everyone says it's so easy to get pregnant at my age but I haven't. I know we weren't actively trying but we had accidents that lead to nothing. (when we got married a year ago is when accidents happened) . I know I'm probably over thinking it! Sorry for rambling!

Mjfaheymomma I would go by your new period date if I were you but I'd also keep an eye out for ewcm to support your estimated OD because you never know...

@babybelle thanks so much for the well wishes! @mjfaheymomma why were u 15 days late to start with? @saadia, calculate 10-14 days after the first day of ur period, that's "traditionally" the best estimate of ovulation on a 28 day cycle.  We'll be preparing go hurricane Irene so if I'm not on for a few days lots of luck everyone! ????

Hi missingmyangel. Things have been so hectic lately. I'm not feeling very confident that this was my month. We were on vacation with family so BDancin was hard to do as often as i wanted. I do feel like my breasts are a bit fuller. Things have been a bit stressful with the earthquake and now a hurricane coming.  I'm trying not to stress but its really hard especially since they say it's coming right at us. I  have a 17  month old daughter and so all I do is worry about her safety. Congrats to those ladies who have recieved good news. Best of luck to you! For all others TTC G? and loads? of ????????????!
Oh missingmyangel how are you doing? How's recovery going?

???????????

Mommy2be, I would def use $ tests prior to AF ? cause I know I dont like spending big ? on tests when I know I'm only 10-14dpo, ya know? I buy the FRER tests to use for when I'm about 2-3 days late ?

Rileysmom, thanks for the info and I added you to the TTC ? list! So glad you joined us ? GL ??? this month and ?pink? baby dust to you ?????

Princess.emma84, happy ? baby dancing to you ? definitely have fun. And of course...GL??? and lotsa baby dust ??????? to you also ?

Keep us posted and if you decide not to take a month off... I ??? this will be you lucky ? month. Baby dust to you ????

Sbconners, bbs feeling fuller is a definite good sign! I too am on the east coast of the states, but the northern part (so not as bad as the south) but we too are prepping for the weather! Where abouts are you? I ? not in the Carolinas! I will keep your family and little ? one especially in my thoughts! Don't worry if ya can't get on here or ? BD at the right time... keep your precious family safe! I am recovering okay, I seem to have sharp pains that come and go and I'm thinking they are not going to go away... but I suppose I will just have yo deal with it. It will be worth it though when I finally get my ?BFP? though ? I've been more of an emotional mess from the loss of ? another one, ya know? Fine one minute then in the grocery store and I see a women that is preggers and I just wanna burst into ? tears. Generally speaking though things are going well and getting better with time. I am trying to stay positive about this next month too! FX for us both ? I know our time is coming soon. GL ??? and keep us posted when you can. I almost forgot ?... BABY DUST ?????

Hey ladies! Congrats to all of you who had a BFP!!! MissingmyAngel and Mommy2be, thank you for the good advices! I finally got the chance to actualIy write on this forum, been so busy with work! haven't had that many chances to BD but I hope those days that I did were the good days. My last AF was on 8/7 so I should be expecting it in a couple of weeks I guess.. I just hate playing the waiting game. Plus I've been getting lower left abdominal pains too multiple times during the day. It comes and goes.
 To everyone in the eastcoast, I wish you luck on the upcoming hurricane this weekend and hope you and your family are prepared and in a safe place. As for myself I'm trying to prepare the best I can.
Good luck to everyone who is on this journey to concieve! Lots of ???????? to all of you!

Hi @missingmyangel thanks for adding me to your list and thank you kindly for the baby dust! Think I'm gonna need it! It's so nice to know that I'm not alone. DF is great and supportive but sometimes he just doesn't understand! Have really been trying hard this time. Both taking pregnancy vitamins and supplements I have completely given up drinking and coffee! Watching everything I eat, sometimes I think I'm getting a little obsessive with it all and think I have symptoms when there not really there! If any of you ladies have any tips I would really appreciate it, no matter how small!
I hope it works this time! As I don't think I can deal with the disappointment again! Good luck to all of you! <3

Hey 137wife, stress can cause weird allergic reactions. after my son died and my husband was laid off (same week) I developed a weird psoriasis-like rashes on my back. Even a year later if I get overlystressed the rash comes back. I also developed a allergic reaction to jewlery and pads. It may be your body reacting to external factors that you can't control. Sorry to hear about your friend, hugs to you.

Well app says that AF is due today, nothing so far but no real symptoms!? To scared to test incase BFN! Fingers crossed and praying this is my time. (how do you get all the cool smilies and pics!?) x

@pinklady. I would test a few days after she is supposed to show. I've read so much about "chemical pregnancy" so I am vowing not to test at all unless im late. Just my thoughts. Good luck Hun!

Hi everyone, I have been reading all your post the last couple of weeks now and want to thank you for all your tips! My husband and I have just started ttc we have been BD this week and I'm due to ?on 2/8, AF is said to be due as per this app 13/9. Here is hoping she doesn't come! I have been on the pill for over 10yrs so my body is freaking out at the moment!  ??? looking forward to sharing the journey with you all! ?

U can buy? tests at the $ store.

Absolutely mommy2be. You can get them anywhere. Walmart, Kmart, target, cvs, walgreens...etc. You get my drift!
I'm so sorry you hear about the loses lately! My ? are will all you ladies!

Missingmyangel thank you for all your prayers. We are all doing great. Glad everything is ok with you and your family. Glad to be able to share my story. Hopefully it helped. Today I was a little anxious so I did a test and it came back negative. I'm a little down. But I guess this just wasn't my month. I think maybe I have my ovulation date wrong. I'm a bit confused I guess isn't it supposed to be 1/2 of your cycle? Do you have any advice?? GL? to all and ?'s  of ?????? to all TTC!!

Good morning ? ladies! I hope all is well ? Mjfaheymomma & Leathellove, I hope you got in all the ? BDing you could. I ? this is your lucky ? month! Keep us posted on symptoms etc. Sending ? dust your way ??????

???????????
A huge congrats to Mommy2EnM & mum25 on your BFP's!!! Wishing you both a happy & healthy 9 months!!
???????????

Pinklady11, I agree best to wait until AF ? is due to better your chances of an accurate result ? Just remember lots of women don't get ?BFP's? until they are either due for AF and some even a little later than that. FX this is your ? month! Baby dust ???????

Linziee19, the pictures are from an app called Emoji. I have an iPhone and I know you can get them free on that... Maybe the other ladies could help more if they are using other devices?

Also, welcome Bubs & Peach! Glad you could join us ? lots of ? and baby dust to you ?????

Rileysmom7603, sorry to hear things are up & down for you with AF ? but I really recommend opks. I use the and I do use the expensive (digital) ones, but you can get them cheaper and they work just as well as I understand. I prefer opks because once you get a positive, you have 12-36 hours before ? happens and I then know to ? "get busy" right away. Charting BBT is good to and even more accurate than opks, but because of the way it works, when you get your temp spike, that means ? already happened. I like to know ahead and confirm with my body's symptoms (ex. Ewcm etc.) but def let us know how charting goes. Lots of ??? and tons of baby dust to you ?????

Trying not to get my hopes up but I just went to toilet and when I wiped I had light brown spotting apologies if it's tmi! I have had a pulling sensation in my lower abdomen for the past week. If my calculations are correct I am 12dpo and af is due this time next week. I also have blue veins all over my bb's and have been having these weird shooting/tingling pains, I never normally get sore boobs prior to af. FX this is my month!!!!

Good Morning Ladies! @Princessky I'm sorry for your loss.. ?... Things will work out for you as long as you keep your head and hopes up. It's never too late to keep trying unless your doc tell you that you can't have a baby.

@MissingMyAngel- my AF? was on ?/? and I'm due again on ?/?. I have question.. Due to this app why does it say that I will be getting my AF? twice in October and November? How accurate can that be? Can someone please explain that to me???

MissingMyAngel, we haven't gotten a whole lotta BD in but I told him the nxt 4 days are key. Since AF left I have felt very sick and have horribly heart burn, which I usually don't have!?
I have a friend that is pregnant for the second time and is supposed to be due with Twins in oct. Today we got news that she lost her little boy, but her little girl is still thriveing. Prayers for that family. It really makes me feel lucky for the child I do have. Sorry to those who have lost a child and congrats to those who are pregnant and GL to those who have yet to test.

Hi
I am new to this. I need some help. We have been TTC for so long now I went to the doctors and they did all test blood etc the results came back and they said I am borderline PCOS. I just finished my peroid 3 days ago and now we are trying again. Will I get pergant or is IVF the best way to go? Does anyone else have PCOS?

Well AF ? showed. It's so frustrating cause my cycle has been so inconsistant the past 3 months. It's only been 3 months that my husband and I are TTC. The first month my cycle was 22 days. 2nd month 27 days and this month 25 days. So its been very difficult to tract when I ?. I ordered some OPK's off amazon and hopefully we can figure it out!

And was living I'm France ?at the time so translation was difficult, now know tho!

And when I rub on that area or press around on it I can feel a little lump or bump whichever one it is. I did some research on it and it said it could be implantation and the egg is dropping,. Anyone knows what that means? I'm a bit worried too. Can it be a cyst?

Im wondering if its a cyst too! But i read tht if u get ur period regularly not to worry about fertility. If it is a cyst. The pain goes away one day or for few hours then comes back for a few min. Or hours. I wake up one day and is gone then during the day it just randomly starts up is this whuts happening to u? Ive had it since i finished my period on the 19 of aug.

Good morning ladies - It's a wonderful ? day today! It was six years ago at this time I cradled our ? newborn son in my arms for the first time! Now my little guy is not so little anymore! I'm so excited to finish work for the day so I can go home and watch him open ?? birthday?? gifts ?'s and eat lots of ? cake and?ice cream!!

Even though I will be spending as much ? time as I can with the ? family today I wanted to check in with y'all ?

Aep511, if you can, I would ask your doc if they would be willing to do ? bloods for you. I will definitely keep my FX for you. Wishing you ??? and lotsa ? dust ?????

137wife, I recommend digital tests. Either Clear Blue or First Response digital ? predictors. Yes they are more expensive... But, it takes the guess work out of trying to interpret the lines. Although I have used the CVS brand with the lines and for me they did work perfectly. My preference though is to either see a "yes" or a "no." it's not too late to get a cheapy version to practice with starting today ya know? Like any store brand and just give it a shot for the next 2-3 days (if you can) to get comfortable with reading your results. GL ??? and tons of ? dust your way ?????

Pinklady11 & Sml, have either of you tested? FX for you that the ? AF ? does not show for either of you! GL ? and ? dust ??????

Patiently waiting, I'm so sorry to hear the ? evil ? AF showed ? and it's never easy ? so please take care and try to keep in good spirit ? because it WILL happen for you. FX this will be our ??? month. lots of sticky baby dust 2U ????

PuppyDoll & Spunkycookie, I can tell you it is very unlikely to be a cyst... I just had my first cyst rupture and it is excruciating pain (mind you, I had my son all natural with no drugs so I know pain and have a high tolerance) and I was in the hospital right before my ectopic for a cyst. On both visits I was given 3-4 injections of morphine and that was barely touching the pain, so you would know it for sure and they can confirm it with a CT scan. If you have a cyst that hasn't ruptured (can be very common) your are likely to never know it. You may want to run that by your Doctor though because you never know... For you Puppy I would guess it has nothing to do with ? just because you said this started right after ? AF ended and you have not reached ? yet... I would definitely let your Doctor know of your concerns ? because ?pains can last a few days in rare cases, but certainly do not a week or more. It is true that a pulling and/or pinching sensation is associated with implantation on occasion, but this should not be in your sides, up by your belly, etc. It would normally occur anywhere from 3dpo - 9dpo and be (more between your hips) low. My advice... if you can't find anything on the internet or anywhere that describes your general situation... I would check with your Doctor just to be on the safe side to be sure nothing is wrong! I hope some of the info I gathered helped and definitely keep us posted And maybe some other ladies have more info and suggestions for you - I will keep you all in my ??? that everything is okay! Much love ? and luck ? and ? dust 2U all ???????
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 02, 2011, 05:01:36 pm
???My apologies???
I did just find some information indicating some of your symptoms could be related to a cyst. I was mostly referring to the info the Doctor at the ER gave me (a bit misleading and primarily relating to a cyst when it ruptures)! Now, I suppose my advice doesn't change I would still call your Doctors to see if you need to go get a scan! GL ??? ladies and I'm sorry again, I wasn't trying to be misleading... FX everything works out for you! ???????

I agree, I did the monitoring and didn't keep my hubby in the loop. He wanted another baby but didn't want the details but then again he is laid back and has the attituide "when it happens it happens"-I wish I had half his patience!!!!. Anyways men don't want to see sex as work and they want to feel attractive. Plus ovulation becomes a big scary thing and maybe he's afraid that he'll fail you if he doesn't get you preggers. Hope that sorta helps.

Oh and someone was talking about pains and feeling a bulge-worried about cyst.... It could also be a hernia. I had a double and it sat right at my underwear line. It pulled and there was a lump that I could sometimes manipulate back into place. If you're worried I'd go see a doctor.

Thanks ladies it makes sence when you put it that way I was just getting so upset because I couldn't understand how we can want a family so bad but when it comes time he can preform! So now I will just make it all about him! On a tmi moment, I had discharge yesterday in my panties! Yippy so maybe I had to clean my system out last month. I have never had discharge before tho so just a question how many days after discharge should we be baby dancing?

@ missingmyangel ? to u & ur family during ur hour of need, I hope that family member passes peacefully. To the ladies mentioning lower ab pain, there are a few of u it seems, not sure if u were right/left side pain but u may also want to check into appendicitis. It's painful too, or gall bladder. If the pain is persisitant u really need to get to a dr before it gets worse, cysts on ur ovaries can burst & it is excruciating too. As for me, sono on thurs was ok, babies ?beat is faint & slow, causing a concern for all. Sonographer said I'm 6 weeks 2 days (5 days now) & so I have a 3rd sono appt for Fri, 9/11. Hoping the ?beat is still there, faster & louder.
I think heymomma posted about the discharge, if u check missingmyangel's previous posts, u may find an answer.
Someone else mentioned the change of cycle length not changing ur ovualtion date on the app, that's quite odd I think. Keep in mind, standard ovulation is 10-14 days after the 1st day of your period. Missingmyangel is very knowledgable and I bet if u re-read this thread u may find helpful info.
Congrats to those now expecting, welcome newcomers & lots of ????????? to those TTC. Night!

Hey AvonladyAshley, just wanted to tell you I'm having a similar issue. I thought I was 8weeks, but when I went to the ultrasound I dated 6.5wks. They were not able to find aheartbeat at first so they ended up having to do an internal ultrasound. They then saw the heartbeat. I see the dr. on tues. Do you think it's because our babies are so young? My pregnancy, the ultrasound was at 9wks and a totally different experience. Anyways good luck on your next ultrasound! Hope the heartbeat is heard nice and loud and strong!

About the pain on my lower left abdomen i found some peace of mind info!
"The pain can appear suddenly and usually subsides within hours, although it may sometimes last two or three days. In some cases it can last up to the following cycle"
Is probably the pain i get from ovulation called " middle pain" in greek i believe. So yeah.
And also i found out that ? happens in the middle of ur cycle so thats why they say about the 14 days thing. Bcuz the average womans cycle is 28 so half of 28 is 14.
But just know how long is ur cycle and divide it by 2 and thats ur cycle day that u suppose ?

Post by: AvonLadyAshley on September 05, 2011, 09:19:53 am
Ty @linzie19 & Rileysmom603 for your well wishes! @KayMc56 they were only internal sono's that I had. The first there was a yok sack but no heart beat, the sono tech said I was prob less than 5.2 weeks (apparently thats when a heartbeat is heard). So they wanted to wait at least another 7 days to see if there was a heart beat. I miscarried in April @ 7 weeks because no heartbeat ever formed & it was probably the worst thing I've ever experienced in my life.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: AvonLadyAshley on September 05, 2011, 09:28:04 am
oh @KayMc it's possible that our pregnancies were too early to hear a beat, she made the point to tell me there was a yok sack- as if I guess I didn't last time do this is at least more optimistic than before. My last AF was 7/14 & they keep telling me you count from the 1st day of ur last period as part of the 9 month pregnancy so figure I'm just over 6 weeks now. Maybe I should research some more about the formation of the fetus's heartbeat...

Just a note to the ladies saying there hubbies have trouble performing underpressure. Mine too! The pressure was really stressing him out and he was unable to finish. More than once, and we all know stress isn'tfanny good for making healthy sperm! I'm not going to say anything about it anymore and just see, let be what be... Period was due today but hasn't shown, no signs, bit crampy but have been for weeks, fingers crossed! Got a head cold which is distracting me a bit from the wondering!

if u started 9/2, fertile days would be 9/12-9/16, approx 10-14 days after the 1st day of your period, on a typical 28 day cycle.

Sadly, if it were me, I wouldn't waste a test. It just sounds like u were early. Sometimes when ur more sexually active, as if ur doing alot of BD'ing, ur cycle will change a little. I've also heard that a change in physical activity, starting a exercise regiment is an example. If ur really wondering & have a test to spare, go for it, it's not like it can hurt.

Been there done that, it sucks. I used to be like that around sick friends, or like if someone complained about an ailment (like a stomachache) my stomach would start to hurt, not for sympathy reasons, but because it just got into my head so much. I've read online & in the current pre-pregancy book I'm reading that pregnancy & period symptoms are so similar that it is difficult to tell the difference, it's not uncommon. I hope that helps a bit. ?

Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 06, 2011, 03:29:36 pm
?ALL ABOUT OVULATION?
For the ladies with questions on your ? dates, BD timing, etc. This is a great read packed with info ? I do not recommend just guessing on your ? date, using only cm charting (this is considered a?secondary sign not primary or the most reliable), this apps guestimate or assuming cutting your cycle in half to determine when you will ? because none of those are accurate. Also, please dont hesitate to ask a question if you are confused, chances are if you don't get it, someone else doesn't either. So, here is the?run-down...

Fertility charting, as you now know, is largely concerned with identifying ovulation and then using this information to make other predictions and calculations about your cycle. Once you know when (and if) you ovulated, you can decide to take a break from ? baby-making intercourse, you can tell if intercourse was well ? timed for conception and you can get the most reliable due date calculation. You can also tell when you can either reliably take a pregnancy test or expect your ? AF.

So, what exactly is ovulation?
Ovulation is the release of a mature egg ? (ovum) from the ovarian follicle. Each menstrual cycle, several ovarian follicles begin to mature and develop under the influence of pituitary hormones. Usually only? follicle develops fully. While the other follicles recede, this dominant follicle produces an egg ? which will be released and which can be fertilized. The growing follicle secretes ?increasing? amounts of the hormone estrogen. Following peak estrogen production, there is a surge of luteinizing hormone (LH). The LH surge triggers the release of the mature egg from its follicle. This is ovulation.

After Ovulation:
Once ovulated, the egg is picked up by one of the fallopian tubes and begins to travel ? towards the uterus in the fallopian tube. This is where fertilization, if it is to happen, takes place. The follicle that released the egg becomes known as the corpus luteum after ovulation and begins to secrete the heat inducing hormone, progesterone.

The lifespan of the egg ? after ovulation is just 12-24 hours, maybe even less. Fertilization must take place within this time frame. After this time frame, the egg begins to degenerate and is no longer capable of being fertilized. This seems like a very short window of time for conception to take place. However, sperm deposited prior to ovulation can ?survive? in the female reproductive tract for a few days, so the few days before ovulation takes place are also considered fertile days.

Ovulation and the Cycle Phases:
Ovulation is the event that defines the phases of the menstrual cycle. The phase before ovulation, when the ovarian follicles are developing, is called the follicular phase. The phase after ovulation is called the (LP) luteal phase. The length of the follicular phase may vary but the luteal phase length is generally constant from cycle to cycle for the same woman, lasting 10-16 days. When cycles are irregular, it is usually because ovulation occurred earlier or later than usual. Knowing when ovulation occurred allows you to see if intercourse was well-timed for ? conception and lets you determine your luteal phase length. Knowing your luteal phase length tells you when to expect your period or a ?positive pregnancy test result?

When does Ovulation take place?
Ovulation takes place, on average, about?weeks before your ? AF, though it can vary from 10-16 days before the onset of menstruation depending on the length of your luteal phase. During an "average" 28 day cycle, ovulation is usually expected to take place between cycle days 13-15. Based on this guideline, many women are taught to expect ovulation around day 14 of their menstrual cycle. Many women, however, do not have average cycles and even those who usually do may see irregularities from time to time. A typical menstrual cycle may be anywhere from 21 to 35 days according to the ?American Society for Reproductive Medicine? Some women even notice cycles that are shorter or longer than this. Ovulation, then, may occur much earlier or later than typical guidelines suggest. ???For example, ovulation may occur on cycle day 23 during a cycle that is 35 days long for a woman with a 12 day luteal phase while ovulation may occur on cycle day 10 for a woman with a 24 day cycle and a 14 day luteal phase length. You cannot assume this app, cutting your cycle length in half or observing CF ? will accurately help you determine your ?date. This variation among women and from cycle to cycle means that there is really no simple "one-size-fits-all" mathematical formula to calculate your?date without observing your fertility ? signs. But, it is possible to learn how to identify your own?date and fertile signs ? by examining your signals ???

Detecting Ovulation:
Your ovulation date and your time of peak fertility can be detected by charting your fertility signs. This is because our bodies produce signals that can ?alert?us that ovulation is approaching and tell us when ovulation has passed. Fertility signs that indicate that estrogen levels are high ? and ovulation is approaching (and fertility is high) include devices such as ovulation prediction kits (OPKs) and fertility monitors can also tell us that ovulation is approaching by measuring the presence of estrogen or luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine. Charting your basal body temperature (BBT) allows you to pinpoint the day of ovulation and tells you when ovulation has passed because progesterone raises the basal body temperature after ovulation. These are the best ways to ? chart! You may also use secondary signs, like observing increasingly stretchy and "egg white" cervical fluid and observing a high, soft and ? open cervix.

Hope this was helpful...?

Ladies - I feel like it's been forever since I've been on! A quick update on me... Our son's ?birthday? went fantastic! Thanks you shelzy88, Aep511, Sml and anyone I missed for the birthday wishes. That was so kind! For those of you who read my previous post, he passed on within the hour of my original post. It was good though, he did not suffer and the whole family was there. The hospital was very good to us! I said to Steve "now your dad can watch over his grandbabies in ????? heaven, that we never got to bring home" and that even brought a tear or two to his ? eyes which NEVER happens to my big, tough, rugged Army man, lol. Making the arrangements has been kinda ? crazy, but we are getting through it. I hope to relax and get some ? BDing in before the end of the week because I will be due to ? by Saturday.

To all those that started ? AF, I'm so ? sorry. It's never ? easy. I ? it will be a ??? month for everyone and we'll get lots of ?BFP's? for the ?Sept Stars? list!! Oh, I almost forgot...Welcome? to all of you that I have not met yet - Newbie29, ScorpioMommi, Lilly, NatrulyBlessed & xxLiL_Miss_Em0xx! Hopefully I didn't forget ? anyone! And those of you that have given me new or updated info, I have updated the TTC ? list! If you are on the "Info Nedded" list, just let me know (all I need is an estimated ? date and the date your next ? AF is due) when you can ? Also, if you are on the list and don't want to be anymore, just drop me a quick message and I'll be sure to update it as soon as I can!

Also, kayMc56 & AvonLadyAshley, I'm so glad to hear from you both! I will keep you and your precious beans in my ? and please do let us know how your next soon goes! Stay healthy and happy ?

I'm sorry to the rest of you, I normally do better at personalizing my posts, but I've been so busy and there was so much to catch up on... So I posted on ?Ovulation? earlier, because that seemed to be the most popular (if you will) concern. I hope my post helped and everyone maybe got at least a little something from it...

I wanted to end this post with my personal review on the latest opk brand. I tried "First Response" digital opks... Yikes!! Very unreliable (I found) the test sticks only worked half the time and I had to go out and buy?more because I'm barely at CD14 now and ran out! I was shocked ? because they make one of the best preggo tests on the market! I did call ? and report the problem and they did say they would refund me my $40 which I do appreciate, but if you do opks and want to use digital - I recommend "Clear Blue Easy" digital which gives you a ?... all day long!

? Lastly... Sending ? loads of ? dust to all ?????? FX and GL ? to everyone this month!!!

Many books tell you that sperm can last for 5 days and the egg for 24 hours. While this is technically true on the very long end (and something to follow if you trying to NOT get pregnant), most sperm will only last about two hours if you do not have fertile-quality cervical mucus for it to swim in. The sperm will struggle to swim up to your uterus, use all its reserves, and not make it. The egg typically lives only about 12 hours, so it cannot wait for long. You can now see how important that cervical mucus is! You will never get pregnant with sperm living two hours and an egg only twelve. This information is really just to make you feel better if you've been trying a long time and all your infertility testing came back normal. If the Deanna-plan does not work and you are faithful to it for three months, take a dose of plain Robitussin cough syrup (or any cough medicine that says "expectorant" and NOT "antihistamine") each day (preferably a few hours prior to "trying") starting around Day 10 until the day after your ovulation predictor goes off. It should help make all the mucus in your body runnier, including that produced by your cervix. (Oh the gruesome details required in baby-making!) The sperm in the runnier mucus will live about two days, and will be up there and ready for the 12-hour life of the egg. A NOTE ABOUT CLOMID: Clomid causes cervical mucus to dry up in 25% of the women who take it. If you notice your mucus is not plentiful as it was before taking this drug, take the Robitussin and call your doctor to make sure your really need the Clomid. If you are ovulating on your own and do not have a documented luteal phase defect, you most likely do not need it.

When trying to conceive there are many things that come into play when determining a success or failure.  One of the first things that I think of is Cervical Mucus (also abbreviated "CM"), because it is one of the first barriers that the sperm must cross before it can even begin to make the long journey up through the uterus and into the fallopian tubes.  If the sperm cannot make it past the cervix the whole hope for a successful month stops right there! 

Cervical Mucus is a fluid that is secreted from the cervix before and during ovulation.  It helps to nourish, protect and help the sperm to transport past the cervical canal. 

Is your Cervical Mucus "sperm friendly"?

You can determine this by examining your Cervical Mucus.  A few days up to a week before ovulation you should start to notice a slippery substance, very similar to the whites of a chicken egg.  Have you ever cracked an egg open and the whites of the egg would strech from the shell to the pan?  This is what good quality Cervical Mucus should resemble.  Bad quality Cervical Mucus may be sticky, thick and yellow in color.  Or you may not have any at all.  This type of CM will not help sperm and will actually impede them from getting any further and can even cause them to die.

There are many remedies to help CM become more fertile:

Drink, Drink, Drink! -  First, you will want to be certain to stay hydrated.  This is vitally important for the CM to be stretchy.  Mucus needs alot of moisture to maintain a fluid consistency.  Drink atleast 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.  Try more if you can handle it.
Avoid Caffeine! - Caffeine is very drying and may defeat all your efforts of drinking alot of liquid to try and hydrate your CM.  Also, caffeine is not good for your fertility overall.
Try Guaifenesin.-  Many people will say to use Robitussin, which contains Guaifenesin.  I will state to use Guaifenesin because many types of Robitussin has other ingredients which can be detrimental to your fertility and possibly to your unborn baby if you have already conceived.    Guaifenesin helps to thin bronchial secretions (mucus) and therefore it is theororized to thin secretions on other mucus membranes, such as the cervix.  There are no active studies showing that this is a certain cure but many women swear by it, including Me!  You can find Guaifenesin at nearly any Pharmacy or Department Store.  You can find it in the Cold Medicine Section.  One type is a pill by the name of Mucinex.  I like to use it because it is easy to take and there is no bad taste, like with the syrup form.  You can also get generic forms of syrup Guaifenesin or the Brand Name Robitussin type but just be certain that the only active ingredient is Guaifenesin.
Try using Fertile CM . -  Fertile CM  is a wonderful new herbal product that combines a balanced blend of herbs and vitamins that cause your body to produce more fertile quality Cervical Mucus.  I have heard great things about this product and I think that it is certainly worth a try. 
Try using Evening Primrose Oil . -  Evening Primrose Oil, also known as EPO, is a natural product that you could try to help make your Cervical Mucus more fertile.  Evening Primrose Oil is a popular herbal supplement that has been used by women for years to increase the quality of Cervical Mucus.  It is said to help the CM to become more liquid and fertile.

Still no sign of ? have done 3 hpt and got 3 BFN! No symptoms, although (TMI moment) I am starting to have a little dark brown discharge every now and again (sorry) not sure what this means?! Have had a little lower abdomen cramping but nothing too bad or for too long! Arrgghh I just wish I could know if I am pregnant or not so bloody AF can come and go and we can start again ?

Hey all, hope your all having a good day! It's ?raining? here, which was crappy for the burial this morning but will be nice for a ? movie, some popcorn and maybe a little ? BDing later tonight ?

Mommy2be, I'm not sure on the ?heat? bringing AF ? on early, but have you tested? It does sound like a super weird AF ? if you are not preggo... If you are not (FX you are though) just remember the first day of spotting counts as CD1... And yes tussin amongst several others like mucinex, epo and some other tricks. Try using google and input "how to increase cervial mucous" and it will give you all kinds of tricks ? GL ? and let us know! ????

PuppyDoll, your information is good, I do try and keep it ? positive though since us ladies are already emotional and super sensitive to everything while ? TTC. The goal is definitely to combine our "TTC tips & tricks" (which I will bump that post for those who haven't gotten to see it yet and good info on ? cervical fluid) to work with our bodies natural process to achieve ?+?=?!  (I think it was you who did that little equation before and I ? it, very cute!) I just want to make sure everyone keeps in mind though, babies are made ? day, ?night, by having ?protected sex, ?unprotected sex and all kinds of ? cervical fluid, so it's not impossible and in this ? crazy, mixed up, ? emotional journey while ? TTC, I don't want people to lose faith ? You are right on the cervical fluid, but it will not matter if you are not tracking your ?, so please keep that in mind too. Your ? cervical fluid is a secondary sign because it is very possible to get ewcm more than once a month and it is not the best way to track your ? date. Also, be careful and always consult your doctor before trying any new meds, even if it's only ?herbs! I noticed you have evening primrose oil a.k.a. EPO, mentioned (which I use) and do recommend... But remember there are certain ? times you want to take certain meds. EPO should not be taken your whole cycle since it can cause uterine contractions ? and interfere with implantation etc. It also is known to soften and slightly open your cervix, allowing sperm to pass easier ? but can also delay your ? date depending on your dosage! If you ask me, I think it's worth a shot for some... Like I said, I use it ?

I will post info on SMEP as well, so if anyone has any questions on that, let us know, some ladies swear by ? SMEP! Pinklady11, I thought of you since you could start right away since you just?stopped AF ? if you were interested...

I want to welcome back Arianna44, so good to hear from you! When if the ? evil ? AF due for you Hun? I will add you to the?WW list ? GL ? I ? this is our month! ?????

Also, I wanted ?Welcome? Wishing_N_Hoping! I added you to the reboot list! Just let me know when your next?date is and when AF ? would be due and I will update your info on our ? list ? and of course... GL ??? and baby dust to you ????????

Linziee19, I can't remember when you?'d? Could this possibly be late implantation? How are you tracking ?? If you can get my specifics on when you started, average cycle length, etc. I will do my best to try and help you figure it out. I'm so sorry this must be frustrating for you... I know the feeling Hun ? I am ??? you get your ?BFP? and ? not ? AF this month! GL ? and keep us posted!

???SMEP PLAN???

Perhaps you've seen other women online mention the "Sperm Meets Egg Plan" also nicknamed SMEP by those familiar with it. The wonderful thing about this plan is that it will give you the best odds of ensuring that the sperm gets to your egg. Obviously if you have blocked tubes or other physical conditions barring conception, this plan will not help much, but if your body is primed and ready for pregnancy, this plan should give you an advantage that you may not have had in past months. But be forewarned... this plan requires some serious lovin' ?

Here is the "Sperm Meets Egg Plan" crash course:

1. Buy 10 OPK tests PRIOR to cycle day 10
2. Starting on cycle day 10, do ? OPK test EVERY DAY
3. Babydance (BD) EVERY OTHER DAY starting on cycle day 10 (hips elevated for 10-30 minutes after each BD session) ?please reference my other post TTC tips & tricks regaring the elevating of hips, as this is not really recommended normally due to recent further research?
4. When you get a +OPK, ? that day and the next ? days in a row (so ?+?= 3 days in a row total)
5. Skip ? night and ? babydance once more the next day
6. Take a home pregnancy test (HPT) 15 days after the day you ovulated (even though most of you will start taking your HPTs at 10-12dpo!)

So there you have it. Simple formula... lotsa work. Up to 40% of post-miscarriage women will get pregnant on their first try if they are ? faithful to the plan, whoch is about double (X?) the number of the normal population who are not on the plan. This assumes, however, that you are indeed ovulating (?'ing) every cycle.

Ok so I think the baby making is put on hold until I can figure some things out. I am not going to bring another child (as much as I want a second) into a house where at time I feel lonely even tho my husband is laying right next to me.  How is that when you get in a fight they can just fall right asleep as you are up for hours trying to get over it? While I am laying on the couch he is in the bedroom snoring away with no care in the world.
He is so hard to talk too sometimes. He frustrates me. I just feel so disconnected from him it's not even cool.
What do I do. I just wanna scream at the top of my lungs right now, and run away with my son.

Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 08, 2011, 03:41:30 pm
Good morning ladies! I wish our ?rain? would stop... Anyhow, hoping ? it's better weather ? for you all!

Leathellove, I so feel you girl! It doesn't happen often (usually more common right after a ? loss) for us, but when it does... It's EXACTLY as you described! It's annoying I know, but I try to remember with everything going on with everyday life and while adding the stress of ? TTC... I'm super emotional. I know for us, he has a lot thicker skin and even that bugs me at times, but they really do feel the pain (whatever your fighting about) too, but process and show it differently. When that happens, I will cry and get upset, but to help me process everything - I will write him a ? letter! It is so helpful with identifying all of YOUR feelings, recognizing how HE might feel. Just be careful ? not to throw stones and make accusations (this can be hard but is likely to put anyone on the defensive side) even if you do not give him the letter and you just use it as a coping tool... Just a thought! Keep us posted though and hopefully you both can work it out and hop back on the ? TTC ? again! Thinking of you ?

?Welcome? Blessedx1son - So glad you could join us! GL ? and baby dust to you ??????

Wishing_N_Hoping, if you feel you need to be checked, I would see your regular doctor or obstetric/gyno. A clinic may seem easier, but your doc already has all your info...plus they will "follow you" and possibly recommend a specialist if needed, where a clinic will not likely do so. GL ? and I ? everything looks good for you! And of course... loads of baby dust to you ??????

Newbie29, it is definitely too early to test, I hate the waiting game too! I would def chart and keep track of all the symptoms you are experiencing! Remember, preggo symptoms are very similar to ? AF symptoms and can play tricks on us! It's very cruel ? sometimes. Usually most common symptoms (if you even have them - remember lots of women don't, so don't think you can't be preggo with no symptoms) are bloating, sore/tender breasts, sinus/cold symptoms, increased or decreased ? appetite, backache, ? fatigue, nausea, ? constipation or diarrhea etc. But these will NOT appear until implantation has occured and there is enough hormone in your blood to cause symptoms... anywhere from 6-14 days after ? is when implantation occurs.  Hopefully that gives you an idea on the timeframe and someone else also asked about how early symptoms can appear. So I would say at earliest... I would say?week after ? is confirmed ?

Crystal;) & Beebees, good to hear from you both! Crystal;) & Aep511, unfortunately I'm not very familiar at all with Provera, I've heard GOOD things about both Provera & Chlomid though! Maybe your system just needs that "jumpstart" and your bodies will resolve the rest itself - I will ? this next cycle will be your ??? month and you get your ?BFP's? baby dust your way ??????????

Linziee19, okay, this is what I figured... Now remember, usually you look at stats from 4 to 6 cycles, not just 2, but this is the ?rundown on the info you have so far: Your cycle appears to be about 34 days, which is on the longer side, but not in the spectrum of necessarily having anything wrong ? and it also looks like you ovulate fairly early too, about CD12 which is okay (how are you confirming your ? date? Are you charting temp or opks? Sorry I can't remember ? off the top of my head) it means of this is accurate, your LP is a bit longer. So, basically instead of a ?WW, you have a 3WW which can be frustrating. As long as you know this though... You understand after ? it could be 3 +/- wks before the ? evil ? AF is due. So basically if you are still getting a BFN when testing, I would guess it is very possible you ?'d later than you thought... The ? AF ? should have been due on 9/5 based on my calculations. Making you ? to ? days late which could be from ? stress, ? sickness etc. So I would give it another couple of days and if still no ? AF and you get another BFN, I would ? your doctor to see if they would be willing to do a blood test ? or be willing to check you out... I hope this helps. Basically, I would not be alarmed yet and if you stress... AF ? could end up delayed further ? Lots of ? dust and ? to you! Hopefully you get your ?BFP? and this is your ? month! ??????????
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Linziee19 on September 08, 2011, 05:19:18 pm
Thank you so much I understand about the lack of info but I have only just started tracking and logging data. ?date are taken only from app. I have bought OPK s ready for next time if AF shows! I really appreciate you taking time to answer and sorry for being a pain! ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 08, 2011, 07:35:57 pm
Linziee19, don't think that! We are all here to help ? eachother! I know what it's like starting out and having not slot of data to work with, but now that I have been charting for some time I'm almost "dead on" with my ? date and never second guess myself, which honestly makes me feel better when I don't get a ?BFP? I'm still comfortable and not thinking maybe I got my dates wrong... Ya know? I know it's not for everyone, but it helps for some ?

Also, remember the info I gave you may change after you start charting and know for sure... I recently met a lady who was sure she was getting ? pains and ?ewcm? and all these other signs of ? just by going with what an app (not this one, but a similar one) date... Well, she started charting and found her dates were off by a little over a week!! I couldn't imagine... I felt so bad ? for her! They were TTC for like 6 or 7 mos and had been ? BDing at the wrong times!! I just like to make people aware it does happen ?

Anyhow, I'm glad you're doing the opks and don't hesitate to ask questions! Lots of ??? and baby dust to you ????????

Hey ladies! How are y'all doing today? Well I hope ?

Blessedx1son, how are you? Are you getting any signs or symptoms? Do you have a feeling on how this month is going to go? GL ??? & Baby dust to you ????????

Mommy2be, GL ??? and FX for your appointment! I ??? you get your ?BFP? today! Please do keep us posted Hun ?

Spunkycookie, has anything happened that could've "reset" your ? cycle? It may be stress causing you to ? later than you thought... I'm just wondering if this has been a trend for the last few months, maybe you are not necessarily ? late, but infact on an entirely new cycle... Have you tested recently? FX and ? it's a ?BFP? and ? AF is a no show for ? months! GL ??? and baby dust ????????

Linziee19, I'm sorry to hear the ? evil ? AF ? showed up! I think I'm just as excited ? (maybe even more) that you will be trying opks!! Remember, don't be shy about asking questions etc. By the way (I can't remember, I'm sorry ?) are you in the The States? If so, just curious which kind you bought, so you can maybe give me an idea?of how they worked for you ? Lots of GL ??? and baby dust to you ??????

Newbie29, I don't have an answer ? to your question unfortunately... How is the rash on you neck? Has it got worse or better? Have you tried to ? your doctor yet to see what they say? If it has not gone away I would at least do that. Some skin reactions (regardless of the cause) can be very serious... Especially being close to your throat! GL ??? and definitely keep us posted! And, of course ????????

Crystal;) I was not sure if you were trying to post or quote, but no text came through that I could see... Just wanted to mention since you had asked before ? BTW, how are you doing? Lots of ? & ? & ? dust to you too ????????

Princessky, thanks for your info on ?Vitex? it was very helpful! (For those that don't already know, this is also known as chaste berry.) There is more info on this in the?TTC tips & tricks? post. You're correct on what you said... You only take this the first half (until ?) of your cycle if you're TTC, which we obviously are ? and should not take after ? occurs!

GL ??? & lotsa ??? and baby dust to all ??????

Missingmyangel I am in the UK ? so if anyone can recommend any good OPK's to use? I just bought a cheap box but kinda thinking quality is better  with this sort of think, I suppose over here it would be clearblue? Or is there better!? Where is the best place to buy them? Price wise? I just went to the supermarket?? I will keep you posted... Thanks x

Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 09, 2011, 02:42:16 pm
Princess.emma84, As long as it has color... They say "a line is a line!" ?Congrats? I would say confirm it tomorrow with first morning urine and it should be darker if you are for sure! I ??? you are our first ???Sept star??? GL ??? and tons of sticky baby dust to you ????????

Mommy2be lots of ? & ? & ? to you today ????????

Linziee19, obviously since I'm from ? and not ? I'm not sure about where to buy, but I can say Clear blue is my top recommendation!! There is no guess work involved... You either get a ? or not. Once you do this a few cycles and chart your official ? date, you will know when to test for the future and you can find a cheaper brand (Clear Blue Digi's are kinda?expensive, i know so I use CVS brand now just as a confirmation tool) since you will know when to test and you can get a feel for interpreting the lines etc. I made the mistake ? of starting with the cheap brand and got confused on the lines and was not sure if I was even getting a positive result... Then I did 2-3 mos with the digital and know my cycle like the back of my hand now ? so I just test right before I'm due to ? to confirm and use only 3 (cheaper, yet effective) tests a month since I know in advance when I should be positive. Hope that helps! Best of ? and lots of baby dust to you ????????

Hun, that would make my info on the list correct. I have you as ?/??, which makes you 8 days before expected AF ? and you would start the ?WW tomorrow ? Keep in mind if you are not sure of your ? date, and for example you ?'d yesterday... That puts you back at the beginning of the ?WW, so you may just have to ride this one out cause there's normal way to know when ? to take a test if your not 100% on your ? date.

MissingMyangel... I think I started a new cycle since may. In May I got my AF On the 15th, I didn't have AF in June, then in July I got it on the 3rd, and the 7th in August.. I tested twice already and got a BFN! I would also would like to point it out to stress but I'm not stressing out on anything. I really hope too that this would be my month and praying to god that he would just give me a BFP so I won't have to play these guessing and waiting games.

How early can early pregnancy symptoms appear. I am so tired the last 3 days, been a little sick to my tummy early in the day and bloated. I'm not sure when I ovulate because it's my first month off of IUD. I think I may just be coming down with a little something.

Wow wht a great thread! Thank you!
DH and I just officially started our journey this month. I'm 29. He's 33. We'll be married 3 years in Nov. I'm so excited and prayerful that God will bless us soon.
I've got the book TCOYF but will admit tht I haven't read the entire book cover to cover. I've read all the charting info and will be checking cf daily.
My last period was Aug 28. I have irregular cycles that average 32 days.  Im trying to eat better and aiming for 30 mins of exercise/day
Welcome to the thread! Just wondering what that abbreviation for the book you're reading?

It's written in the very first post that missingmyangel wrote. I think it's taking charge of your fertility she has also written the author there too.
Yea- I caught that after posting, Ty!

Princess.Emma congrats!
Lilly TY!
mommy2be Sorry I know nothing about the extreme heat either, like weather or hot tub heat cuz no hot tubbing when pregnant!
I forget who mentioned the rash, but I would def recommend going to the dr if it persists.
I see alot of you seem to be really depending on this app for your days & etc, but an old fashion calendar works just fine too! It's alot easier to track ur period on a paper calendar ESP when ur not on a regular 28 day cycle. Not to toot my own horn, but I used a regular calendar & used this just for fun, & now I'm 8 weeks, due 4/19/12. EVERYONE is different though, what works for me may not work for any of you. But it can't hurt to try a paper calendar right? So here's my advice: Mark the 1st day of AF On your calendar. Calculate 14-18 days from that 1st day and BD to your hearts content those 4 days. Mark your calendar on days you do BD (in case you don't everyday). & then I still marked my calendar for 28 days after day 1 of AF so I would have an idea of when I was late.
Like I said, just because it worked for me doesn't mean it's 100% accurate for everyone but if you have 28 days to spare.. Why not give it a try? ?
Sono update: Nice, Strong ?beat! We were so relieved! Next appt is in a month. I'm still nauseous day in & layout, told my husband he's carrying the next kid! Congrats to anyone else that got BFP's ????. GL to those still waiting to test & TTC, keep those updates coming!

Also start taking pre-natals now! You can get them OTC in CVS & walgreens I believe. If not, def start taking 400mcg of folic acid, it aids in babies development once on board. I'm taking iron pills too ?

I did 3 test previous to this happening and they were all BFN's?? I have no symptoms at all. Should I test again? I have no idea what to do or if this is even normal!?! Please help!!

Hello Ladies ? i would like to join this awesome thread on my journey on TTC. I'm 28 and I'm really excited but this process is so confusing. According to this app, ? was suppose to be Sept 3, but if my body isn't playing tricks it happened on Sept 9th. Which means that ? will arrive late? ? so stressful. I'm not sure when I should test or when I would be late?

So I'm due for AF either tomorrow or next day. But feel different to usual. I usually only get pains during O time and maybe during AF but that's it.
Though this month I had pains from O time up till a few days ago so well over a week. I haven't Been as moody as usual. Been overly hungry eating heaps. Tired. Feeling bit off. Headaches. Back aches. Pains in my legs. Like shoting pains. Me and boyfriend have sex like 2 or 3 times a day. I'm just hoping AF doesn't come. Any advice?

Hi all, would love to join your circle of love. I'm new to this but I think I'm getting the hang of it.I O'd on the 31/8 but we didn't BMS until the next day. Would that have an affect on our chance of getting PG. My AF is due in 3 day.
Thanks and baby bust good luck to all :-)

Good morning?ladies! Also welcome? to Xrbx, MrsH, Glors and ladyluck... Who got her ?BFP? this morning I see... Before I even got to add you, lol. So,?congrats?to you and and yours ? & wishing ? to you for a ? happy and healthy 9 mos!!! To the rest of you, if you gave me info, it has been updated ? on our TTC ? list! Also, MrsH I used your?date as the 9th and unfortunately, yes ? AF ? will be due later... But FX she ? doesn't show! GL ??? and baby dust to all of you ????????

137wife, good to hear from you! Hope all is well and it sounds like perfect ? timing for Hubby to come home huh?!? Will ? you guys ? get lots of time to get some ? BDing done ? - GL ??? and baby dust to you ????????

Aep511 & Spunkycookie, not sure what's up... I would try and stay as relaxed and stressfree as possible... See if the ? evil ? AF ? shows... If not maybe take one more test and if still a ?BFN? I would say call the doctor. They may be able to test for stuff like PCOS etc. which you can easily take  ? for to regulate cycle. May not even be anything serious, but maybe some ?herbs? etc. could help regulate if there is nothing wrong which is ?hopefully? the case! GL ??? and definitely keep us posted!

Princessky, hang in there, I know it's hard... But "this too shall pass..." is what I tell myself when I'm ? down or ? stressed. Lots of ??? and ???! Hopefully you can talk to your honey and tell him how you feel? Keep us posted and baby dust to you too ????????

Post by: Linziee19 on September 13, 2011, 05:12:37 pm
Ok so went to the doctor today, still a BFN! He said as I have only been tracking my dates for a short while it is difficult to say why my AF is late, could just be irregular, he said keep trying as normal and if after 6 months nothing has happened to go back and have some blood tests done- 6 MONTHS!! How long!!! I hope it happens sooner than that, we have actually been trying longer than a couple of month but on been recording exact dates and tracking for a couple of months. It's unfair that he says we have to wait so long OH says if we have to we will go private and sooner! So glad he is on my side and as keen as me, although I'm kinda feeling the pressure now? what if I can't get pregnant, he wants kids so bad!
Congratulations to all with BFP! ????????

Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 13, 2011, 06:08:55 pm
Oh Linzie19, I'm so sorry? you are having a hard time. For now try to stay positive and hopefully you get your ?BFP? this next cycle. I wish I could tell you better, but you really do need a foundation of tracking your cycles. Maybe like you said, call ? around to some different doctors. Just dont feel alone Hun, statistically on average, it takes a completely healthy man and woman ? 6mos-1yr to ? conceive. Do your best to record all that you can and I will keep my FX and ??? this will be your ??? month! Lots of baby dust your way ????????

Hi Missingmyangel! My dates arent super accurate but I did not have AF show up yet. It is my first month off of IUD so I'm not too optimistic. Although, TMI moment, I have been constipated, have heartburn, fatigued and having carb cravings an can't stand proteins!!! These can all be stressed related as well. If I don't start by 9/20 I will test.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 13, 2011, 07:47:13 pm
Omg!! Those are all very promising symptoms! Have you tested yet?!? If not, I would test now ? GL ??? and ? for you to get a ?BFP?this month ? Please keep us posted!

Post by: PuppyDoll on September 13, 2011, 08:11:22 pm
@missingmyangel
My dates arent super accurate eithBer but, aprox. 4 days till AF and my symptoms so far i guess would be :
A current of electricity/tingly feeling not *painful* just felt really weird on my both breasts but more on my left one and it seemd it was ending at my nipples b4 that happend ive had a bit of sore nipples. After that i had diareah on the 10th. Then after that ive been a bit constipated. Ive been feeling some movement like feelings around my abdomen ( not saying is a bby) and on and off slight heartburn.
& higher sex drive mostly at night tho Thats it for me.

Im not sure if I'm TTC but I get very sad when AF appears. I have a son of 4, and would like him to have a lil brother or sister, his dad and I have been having unprotected sex for 18 months with just a few months of birth control at the start. ATM I am 9 days late but my cycles change so much each month I know I would only get a BFN if I was to test ?. I am very grateful for what I already have but am also scared I won't be able to give my son a little bro or sis to play with and look after ?. I only just found this app a few month back and enjoy reading this forum, good luck to you all xx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 14, 2011, 01:38:11 pm
As always ?welcome to all that have recently joined including Ccheme01, Babyxy, Pistol and Clatkabell! Great to have y'all with us on this ? TTC thread!

Clarkabell, I know the feeling... Been trying for a while now to give my 6 year old DS a playmate. It's sad at times I know, but try to stay positive, it will happen in due time ?

Babyxy, when is the ? evil ? AF ? due to visit you? FX she doesn't show up!

Pistol, I'm sorry to hear and it sounds like you have a number of obstacles, have you ? discussed TTC with your doctor yet? That would be the first step I would take if you have not already...

Crystal;) no worries, if you don't have an update at this time, that's?okay... Just let me know when/if AF show and when you are expecting to ? again ?

Wishing_N_Hoping, test times for opks can be tricky... Ideally you want to test in the afternoon, because that is when your "surge" will actually ? spike! Problem is, most tests require more concentrated urine ? and if your like me that stinks because I always have to pee ? But some tests say it's okay to use FMU, however they will likely not be as accurate in the am opposed to the pm. Each different test will give you ?tips and tricks? in the instruction booklet as well. I can tell you that I try to test between 12-2pm. It should be around the same ? time (I add it to my?phone calendar with an ? alarm) each day. This way I can take my first morning pee then reduce ? liquid intake until lunch ? and do opk around my break time at work... If you have no clue (honestly, most people don't know when they ? because ladies go by an app then a week after the app said they ?'d they think they're have ovulation pains or another brief period with ?ewcm? so the app ? date is then in question...) Start testing around CD10 incase you do ? early.  Try to stay relaxed because the slightest stress ? can delay ? and can mess your dates up. In a typical cycle (28 days you CD14 is when you would ?, but any cycle logger than 28 days you are more likely to ? later. For example I have a 31-33 day cycle and I ? around CD18...) So once you narrow that down, you can get a better ?idea of when to start testing ? I know it seems like a lot, but once you do it just a few cycles, you will be way comfortable with it and may not even need the opks any longer ?

Newbie29, I hear ya on the wait. It seems like ? time just drags ? I try and arrange projects to keep myself busy during the?WW, so I'm not obsessing the whole time. Also, another trick I've learned is I don't keep HPT's around so I'm not tempted to test too early and get a dissapointing ? BFN ? Hope some of that might help you...

Lots of ??? and GL ??? to all - keep us posted and ? loads of sticky baby dust to all of you ladies ???????????

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 14, 2011, 05:14:52 pm
Linziee19, I found the following official definition from the internet...

???????????
Description:
Abdominal pain that occurs at the time of ovulation. The pain results from irritation of the abdominal cavity secondary to bleeding from the ovulation site. About 20% of women experience Mittelschmerz (aka? pain) and the presence of the symptoms does not signify any structural disease.

Symptoms:
Lower-abdominal pain usually located on one side, recurrent pain that recurs during the same time in the menstrual cycle, the pain may switch sides from month to month.
???????????

I've heard aome women describe it as a pinching and/or pulling sensation. Hopefully some other women could describe this in their own words for you to get a wider variety of answers. I can tell you personally for me it is pinching and painful. It only lasts like 20min - a few hours max. It happens within 12-24hrs of getting my positive opk and is very regular, almost same ?cycle day? each month. It is also way more painful on my right side and has been very noticeable to me dice my right tube was removed from ectopic... Not sure if that helps any, but hopefully some other ladies can give you some insight. Just don't panic ? because it's not uncommon to not have any pain with?at all and everyone is slightly different so there is no "norm" on this...

Rileysmom7603, so sorry? to hear of the BFN ? just remember... it is still early, so try not to lose hope!

Crystal;) I'm updating the cycle info right after I post this ? and I will do my best to help you figure out your ?date, but I need the dates from your previous ?cycles? and I will see what I can come up with ?

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 15, 2011, 02:41:18 am
Moon_dancer, that is EXACTLY why I tell ladies not to go by an app's prediction of ? because as you can see already... It's not always accurate ? I'm sorry I don't know much on the saliva scopes since I use poas opks ? but my advise is... science the answer! Stay as positive and stress free as you can to be sure you don't delay ? and in the meantime have fun ? BDing because I'm sure you're getting close ? but keep checking for that positive!! The same for you Wishing_N_Hoping! Try to be patient and wait for that ? to be sure! I'm so excited for you both and will ? this is your month!!! FX and lots of ??? and ??? to you! And of course... Wishing you both baby dust ????????

Mommy2be, GL ??? to you! Constipation can actually be a preggo symptom, just try to relax... Take ? note of any other ? symptoms, but dont stress or ? over-analyze every tiny thing, this could make you late... FX and ? for you that this is your month and the evil ? AF ? is a ? no-show!!

Hi ladies I haven't posted for a while. I'm pretty sure i have ovulated today. I have had some lower abdominal cramping and ewcm. BD'd just incase!!!! According to this app I was supposed to ovulate on the 18th so its a couple of days early. AF should b due on the 4/10 but I have been a bit irregular lately so I'm not really sure when to expect it.

@MissingMyAngel I agree with the ladies on here thank you for your posts and your informative and helpful replies I always look for your posts when I come onto here as they really help. Unfortunately I gave in and tested and it was a bfn according to this app it's 5 days until dreaded af but as this is first month after bcp Im not really sure when it'll happen but you really do feel disappointed with the result ? ah well back to the waiting game ?my dp has started wondering now as my moodiness is getting terrible and he's noticed that my breasts are bigger and harder but again that could be the work of af!

That's awesome! Thanx. Eish ttc is really hard work for some of us. Ive got 1 son who we conceived very quickly. Our second was a missed miscarriage at 7 weeks. Our 3rd was born 27 weeks weighing 1kg. He made it to June this year at 3 weeks b4 his 1st birthday and passed away cause of heart failure!

Now we decided to maybe start to try again cause it took us 2 years for our last preemie angel. Also I've got PCOS!

Good luck to all you ladies who is ttc!

Good evening ? ladies! Just wanted to say sorry to all those ladies that had AF ? show? and to those still waiting... Newbie29, Lilly and C, keep your faith! It's still early and there is ?BFP? possibility! FX for you all, GL ??? lots of ??? and I will ? AF ? stays ? away!!

Yobrien, I'm so glad you joined us ? but I'm deeply sorry for your ? loss. Did you have any dates you wanted me to add to our ? TTC ? list?

Patiently waiting, ? good to hear from you, I have updated your info on the list along with the others that have given me updated information. I will ? this is your ??? month!

Princessky, thank you so much for sharing! That was very ? thoughtful to recall all that information especially so close to your ? loss! It was very helpful and appreciated though... Btw, how are you Hun? I'm here if you need to talk or vent ?

Wanting#1:) try to be patient with the opks. They take some getting used to. Do you mind me asking which brand you are using? Is it digital? I might be able to give you a few tips... I know my monthly routine goes as follows: I take 2000mg/day of EPO and a daily dose of Geritol until ?, then I take 1000mg/day of Fish Oil and a daily dose of Geritol from ? until ? AF shows (boo ?) or preferably a ?BFP? I always use a weekly pill box and leave on my night table to ensure I don't forget them! Then I set a daily reminder using my?to use my opks from CD15-CD18 to confirm I ? when I should ? I have a few other better and more detailed ?tricks? but that would be a whole other post in itself. Getting very sleepy ?? and I promise to catch up with all of you lovely ladies in the morning ? and the most important part of the post... Baby dust and lots of ??? to all ???????????

Thanks everyone for the positive support!! I guess I am still in with a chance, might take a test tomorrow or Sunday when I can get the courage! Missingmy angel- when AF comes I'll let you know when I'm due to ovulate for the list, assuming I go back to a normal 28 day cycle! Goodluck to everyone still waiting to test, hope it works out for all of us! xx

Hey Ladies! 13 days late and still no ?AF... Well took a hpt test today when I got up sometime in the afternoon... And forgot to look at it cuz of rushing to go to work, well when I came back home I remembered that I left it on the counter... When I went to look I saw a faint positive! Not sure if it's official yet or not, not trying to have my hopes up then shot down. Gonna go buy another hpt then test again. But had made an appt to see the doc on OCT 4th just in case AF still doesn't show up. XFs!!! ?? Good luck and lots and lots of baby dust to all! I hope you all get ur BFP and so do I! Don't give up! And stay strong ladies!

Well I'm sure I'm out again. BFN this morning and spotting which Is what I've had for the last 5 days. It can't be Implantation bleeding either. Ahh this is so hard. I hate that down you get when AF arrives.  It's just not fair.           Good luck to everyone here.

So I got an email yesterday scheduling an interview for a promotion at work... Now I am trying to decide if I should hold off on TTC if i didn't get pregnant this month. This promotion would allow me to work from home the majority of the time and be able to see my kids more. But I REALLY want to get pregnant to... What to do?

No AF.  I was sure it was coming yesterday on it's due date. I used a FR test this morning. Still ??. I just wish it would start so I can get on with the cycle. I'm working with the doctor who I see as my Gynecologist, next week so I'll talk to him and make an appointment to sort it out. I'm very lucky im in the right field for this.

Thank u.. But I did a clearblue digital test again and came out not pregnant! Why is like that!? I'm soo confused now ?? is it maybe because I'm still 2 days till AF and when I did my HPT this morning that's my first urine of the day..maybe my HCG is still low that the digital didn't catch it when I test again around noon. I will do it again tomorrow morning and see???? ????????????

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on September 18, 2011, 02:02:12 am
Hi baby, if I were you yep I'd test in a few mornings and see what you get. Maybe your hormone levels are low and are barely showing. Sometimes you can get a positive line after you leave the test for a while though (evaporation). I hope that is not the case for you and you get a positive. Otherwise join us all in our struggle next month!

Well AF has arrived for me :-(  which means I am next due to ovulate on 2nd oct - assuming I go back to my normal 28 day cycle. On the plus side my partner finally agreed to go to doc to continue fertility tests. So we have an appointment for next Monday!!

Missingmyangel - don't be discouraged!  I know we all get that way sometimes but I truly do believe that your ?BFP? will come soon!  You are such a help and inspiration to everyone on here. To those who do deeds good things will come!  You always help out the ladies on here giving us hope for the next month, GREAT information, and are always someone we can count on when we need a friend! I ?pray? that you get your ?BFP?  and a playmate for your DS!  I do believe in my heart that this will happen for you as it will for all of us who have banded together during our ? journey of ?TTC?.  With all the ??? and ??? and ???????

Babyxy- tests are only valid for an hour or so. If you left the test for a few hours then looked it was more then likely a false positive. It is still early so don't give up hope. Test again in a few days if AF doesn't show.

Post by: 137wife on September 18, 2011, 06:57:37 pm
MTHRF- I was diagnosed with this gene mutation earlier this year.  I have been "googling" for my exact code mutation and have found varying results on ease of conception.  Some say just a prenatal will help (been on those for years). Some say an extra dose of folic acid. The most severe being daily herepin shots. Hubby and I have been TTC for over a year. I am not sure if I am thinking worst case senerio because of that or if maybe I should see a specialist. My doc knows nothing on this mutation and did not try to seek any answers for me when I received my test results (thank you tricare) just saying that I should be ok. Any thoughts on what I should do?

My period was due the 17th a few days be4 that i got cramps, for a few and then went away but no AF on the 18th i started to get mild cramps and then i discoverd i had gotten my ? it was light brown/ red... now today is the 19th and is still light ( TMI) and very watery/slippery and is brown by now my period should be bright red. ( also not much on my pad.) but it was followed by bad cramps. Not so strong cramps just felt really sick. Like weakness and kinda felt like puking. Can this still be implantation bleeding?

?Implantation Bleeding (IB)?

Implantation bleeding is just one of several typical pregnancy symptoms and it usually happens around 6-12 days after ? ovulation and fertilization,  within 1-2 days after arrival of the blastocyst in the uterus,  usually around 9 days after ? ovulation (dpo), with a range of 6-12 days. At the time of implantation bleeding, the blastocyst is barely visible to the naked eye, probably smaller than the dot above the letter "i". Once implantation happens the blastocyst becomes the embryo.

The blood pregnancy test ? usually becomes positive within 3-4 days after implantation, and the urine pregnancy test usually becomes ?positive? 4-5 days after implantation. 

Is It Implantation Bleeding or a Menstrual Cycle...? Implantation bleeding usually presents about a week before your menstrual cycle is due to begin (or a week after ? ovulation). Many women refer to this as spotting or do not even notice the bleeding at all. The closer to the day when the ? menstrual cycle is supposed to begin that the bleeding is noticed, the less chance of it being implantation bleeding.

It is important to understand that the blood associated with implantation bleeding is not going to be fresh blood. The time ? it takes for these drops ? to move out of the body ages the blood. It will appear dark brown, even black by the time the spotting occurs.

If what the woman feels is implantation bleeding is followed by a lighter flow or normal menstrual cycle, the blood was probably not associated with the implantation of the ? egg.

I'm sorry I've been Mia for a few days, I've been sooo sick! This morning sickness shit is bs, I'm still nauseous day, noon & night, whenever I'm not laying down or sleeping I feel horrible. I lost 4lbs last week from not even eating my daily calories. It's difficult enough to take in my normal amount plus the additional 300 calories for the baby. Sometimes even to look at food just makes me lose my appetite. The most I've been able to consume is lipton noodle soup & chicken broth (like a bruillon square in hot water). I'm starting to think I should try Ensure or something. Oh, & the ob gave me a script for zolfran which I swear doesn't work & sometimes makes symptoms worse. I constantly feel like crap, lazy & tired, AAAAHHHHHH! This is so annoying. Sorry for venting? we haven't told our families yet, waiting til I'm 4 months to be on the safe side & this is about week 10. Does anyone, PLEASE, have any advice, anidotes or just something I can do to ease this discomfort? Dr said bread/carbs would b good, I've been able to hold down a pj&j on whole grain so far too but it's been really difficult..

Okay ladies, got a bit of catch up ? to play I see! I hope you all had decent ? weekends! I'm so sorry, as always, to those who had ? AF show. Time to gear up and put a plan to declare ?war? on ? AF to ensure some more ?BFP's? for some adorable?summertime ? babies!!!

I want to welcome everyone who has recently joined us on out TTC ? journey! There are many very knowledgable women on here that have amazing ? stories, loads of ? strength and courage and pour their ? and soul into ? TTC each month! So... ?Welcome 1stimemummy2be, Lisa83, Diva81, ERP, Cootsie and Cazza!!! To those that have already given your info, I updated the list and for those that have not, just let me know when you have the time ?

PuppyDoll, Hun, I will keep my FX and ??? for you and hope that you are one of the exceptions to the rule... But I'm not going to say anything to get your hopes up. I hope I'm wrong, but I've done a lot of ? research (as you can see I posted earlier) and it sounds to me more like an ? irregular ? AF cycle. I do hope I'm wrong though and you get your ?BFP? soon!!!

137wife, thank you for all your kind words! I will have my FX for all of us and we get our ?BFP's? this month!! GL ??? with Tricare... I know how that goes as we too are?military. Have you discussed a referral with your PCM? Or is that the one giving you the "run around?" I hope and ??? you get your answers soon!

Babyxy... I am so sorry?to hear about the false positive. Hopefully this next month will be our ??? month! Lots of ??? and ? dust to you ???????

Veniana, maybe your cycle just needed that extra "jumpstart." ?iatte, I would go buy your calculations and not the ap's! Kaap us posted Hun! I will ? this next month will be both of your ??? months!! Lots of ??? and ? loads of baby dust to you ladies ??????

Lilly and C, GL ??? at your appointments!!! Spunkycookie, any news?!?! I ??? it's a ?BFP? please do let us know ?

Rileysmom7603, you will make the right decision about ? TTC and your family, because obviously you know what's best for you an your ? family! I hope you are supported by them in whatever you chose - and I assure you we will support you either way! Im sorry ? to hear about ? AF. Best of luck ??? and lots of ? to you!!

Princessky, I have had the same pains!! For now, I am keeping track of ? when and where they are happening incase it is a concern later... I think it's too early to say what for sure it is other than our bodies getting used to missing a tube ? I would definitely advised you to do the same! I also noticed ? is extremely painful (doctor prescribed narcotics for 1-2 days, that's how bad) on the side I lost my tube. Is this something you have experienced? Lots of baby dust to you Hun ??????

AvonLadyAshley, sorry to hear your so sick Hun! My last 2 pregnancies I had horrible morning sickness ? lasting into 12-14 weeks! What saved me was Saltine crackers by my bedside!! Had to eat 1-2 before even sitting up... Also took them wherever I went!! Keep in mind, as sick as you feel - be happy for your precious bean! You are blessed ?

But I will try eating them before getting out if bed, Ty for the advice. ?

Hi to all, after 12 months of trying AF is 3 days late which is unusual considering I'm usually like clock work but 2 hpt's give me a bfn finding it all very frustrating trying not to get your hopes up to just have them come crashing down and dr isn't willing to do anymore tests for another 12 month. But I wish lots of luck to the mums to be and other mum hopefuls like me.

Hi ladies. I'm still waiting for either my bfp or the evil ? af to show. Feeling terrible as well at the moment. I'm so tired I'm going to bed so early and when I get up I'm just as tired as I went and I've come out in an outbreak of pimples all around my mouth! Got an upset stomach and have done for a week and I'm constantly fancying sweet things! Know all of this is a sign of both preg and af but to feel this horrible wish I had a bfp to make me feel better ? keep getting asked at work if I'm ok cos I don't look very well even wishing af would show up if that's what it is so I can start again! ? to all

Thanks missingmyangel, hopefully our tests go well,  Goodluck newbie, baby and Madame!! Hope you get those 2 lines soon!! Avon lady- oh that must be horrible, I couldn't imagine being so sick. Are you also taking Ginger and vitamin b6 tablets -  might also help a bit. Have you tried metoclopramide? It's a script medication - In Australia anyway. You can take it on top of zofran if you need to. Yeah I too have heard munching on crackers before you first get up in the morning can help, and chomping as often as you can through the day too!!  I hope you get relief soon!!

Welcome Nikki85, it can all be a bit daunting when you start trying to conceive. I stopped the pill in April and thought it would be as easy as throwing away my pill an jumping in the sack. Unfortunately there's a little more to it. After I stopped bc my cycles have been a little frustrating. My first period came after 5 weeks after stopping bc and since then it has ranged from 32 to 42 days. I havent tried opks or anything just trying to let nature take it's course so far no luck though. I may try opks and tracking my ovulation if something doesn't happen by the end of the year. The best advice I can give is not to focus to much on it, stressing about it only makes it worse. My dh and I were bd ing nearly every day in the beginning and it became quite unemotional. Enjoy the journey, gl and baby dust to you.

Thx Patiently waiting! It is a little bit, but I agree with u, as I said we aren't in any hurry so I'm going 2 just enjoy & take it as it comes.. It is interesting tho about how u can track everything, hadn't even thought of doing it! I won't try opk's yet, it's only early days! I hope things start to sort themselves out for you P/W n I hope u n dh get a BFP soon! GL n baby dust 2 u aswell! Xo

Post by: Lilly on September 21, 2011, 12:17:18 pm
Welcome nikki! Wishing you the best of luck! I use cheap  opk's each month to make sure I have my ovulation day right.  from memory I started using them after about 4 months. I like thfm coz it makes me feel more 'in control' - im a vety organised person!! :-) hope you get ovulating soon x
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Linziee19 on September 21, 2011, 12:28:38 pm
Hi @newbie29 and @diva81!! The OPK's that I bought are the Tesco own brand, I find them hard to read, I think like missingmyangel said go for the clearblue and easy and clear, a little more expensive but I think it's important to get it right and not waste time, I will be buying them for sure next time! How long have you both been trying for!? What are your current situations? X

Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 21, 2011, 02:08:16 pm
Good morning ladies!!! Looks like ? here, hope it looks better ? your way! So a big ?welcome? to Nikki85, MadameDom, Munki and Tjc177!! To those of you that gave dates I've added them to the original TTC ? post. 

MadameDom, Have you considered getting a second opinion to see if another Doc would be willing to do some ? testing for you? GL ? and baby dust to you ??????

Also, to everyone new I'm bumping my other post for you! It's called ?TTC tips & tricks? and it's full of great info and would be worth the read ?

Nikki85, sometimes docs do use the ?BC? pill to regulate your cycle, but it depends on the person ? my first recommendation is checking out the ?post I mentioned above. GL and baby dust ????????

Lilly, I forgot about those tricks! VitB6 and Ginger were helpful to me also! Great advice ? Also, I ? your post about opks and encourage ladies to use them! Diva81 & Linziee19, I know it's not easy and can be hard the first cycle or too using opks, but I hope you do not give up or get too discouraged with them. Lilly sounds like a good source for ?advice on opks also ? My advice is try to remain patient for your positives! And of course... Baby dust ????????

Newbie29, I'm sure a lot of us can relate to your feelings of such ? disappointment when AF ? arrives... Any news? Best of luck Hun and baby dust to you ????????

C, GL ??? at your appointment tomorrow and definitely let us know how it goes! If I could recommend to you... Maybe make a list of questions and concerns ahead of time to ensure you don't forget anything while you are there... It helps me, might ?help you too  Lots of ??? and baby dust ????????

So I'm finishing my?WW and just wanted to give everyone the opportunity to join me in sharing about yourself!! You may notice the addition I have made towards the end of the post and I have done myself and wanted to invite anyone who WANTS to share (do not feel like you have to) about themselves. This would be interesting to have for us ladies and hopefully pass some time for us who are waiting for a ?BFP? or ? AF ? If you would like to add your info, I will need your ?, age, TTC ? info, if you have and ?pixiewing? angels ?'s, any current ? kids, ? likes, ? dislikes, fav adult?and most important... fav ? ice cream!! 

Lots of ??? and ??? and baby dust to all... ??????

Dreaded ? af arrived today not too upset as it arrived pretty much on time so hoping this means body back to normal after bcp? And I get to do lots of ? bd again now! Let's see what this next cycle brings ?. Info wise I'm 29 and have an 11 year old dd, she arrived when I was 18, sadly split with her father and he died a few years ago. I've never wanted anymore children as I raised her alone and did find it hard although she is amazing and I'm very proud of her ?. Met my dp couple of years ago and agreed we wouldn't have children then recently had a complete change of heart and both said actually we would like to try ? he is an absolute gem and the ? of my life so I can't wait to have his child ? very soft I know apologies ?! I'm from ? I ? animals, hate ? and creepy crawlies! Favourite adult ? would be Bacardi and favourite ice cream is coffee ? looking forward to finding out about everyone else on here ? and of course ???? to all

Remember, don't feel like you have to share anything you don't want...you can just say where you are from and/or age if you'd like. Thank you both though, it's so exciting I think to get to know others who are all working to achieve the same goal ?

Fab idea missingmyangel and goodluck for your 2ww!!! I'm 27, in aus, TTC for my first for 9 months (dr thinks it's 12 though hehe), no prev MC or anything. My fav drink is anything with vodka, though I hardly ever drink, unfortunately I have a lot of dietary restrictions so can't eat ice cream :-( but I LOVE hokey pokey!!
Nikki I originally bought first response opk from supermarket (I work in a pharmacy so couldn't buy it from there) it was $25 for 7, so I switched to ones on eBay which are $8 for 20 and they've been working fine!!
C- best of luck today. Nope I haven't had any other tests done. Neither has my partner, so hopefully they'll test hm next week. I live in remote autralia though so I'm hoping a GP can do it so we dont have to wait til we are in a city :-(

Very long, sorry !!

I have been following this thread since it started and I thought it was about time I joined in. I am 23 years old and my husband and I have been married for 2 and 1/2 years and have been trying to conceive the whole marriage. I am an Australian and a primary school teacher. I have had issues with my period since my very first period (which by the way came pretty late). I have a cyst on my right ovary which is preventing falling pregnant but will go away if I fall pregnant ? I was in hospital 2 weeks ago because the cyst ruptured (has happened before but this time the pain didn't go away and was unbearable). I induced my period last month with provera and then got my period on Monday and finished last night, so back to trying to conceive ? sorry for the long post, looking forward to this journey with you ladies, you are all very supportive ?

Hi ladies!! What a great thread! I'm so glad I found it. A support system like this is necessary during this time!!
I'm 24 years old, and my husband and I got married in July. We started ttc right away. We can't wait for babies ;)!
I am currently 15 days late. I had 3 days of barely there brownish spotting last week. My periods are always regular, 7 days long and super heavy. Prior to the spotting I had a week and a half of extreme mood swings. I've been having a clear/whitish discharge for the past 4 days or so. I have had extreme fatigue for the past 2 weeks and starting last night my nipples have been so sore!! All HPT's have been negative. I'm going to the doctor on Wednesday for a blood test. The not knowing is torture!!! Lol.
Good luck to you all!!! I will keep you all in my prayers and hope you all get the good news you're waiting for!!!! <3

Hello all! Been another few days since I touched base here. Welcome new gals & congrats to anyone that has gotten a BFP since I've posted last. Just finished up week 10 of pregnancy. Tested positive before on bloodwork for Gaucher's disease, I'm a carrier because of 25% Jewish heritage. Luckily, my husband doesnt have any jewish lineage (gonna double-check with bloodwork on him though) because we both have to be carriers for the disease in order to pass it on to the baby. I'm still nauseous practically 24-7, saltines aren't helping too much & I've lost 4lbs this week! I can do to lose some weight though (more like alot! Lol). Been drinking Ensure & other fluids to at least stay hydrated. Ugh. Well time for bed, have a great week & baby dust ?????? to those TTC. ?

Linziee are you still using the tesco OPK's? I see what u mean about them being a bit tricky to read. I also think this app and my actual ?are quite a bit out - I'm going to keep going with them though! Fingers crossed for you xxx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Linziee19 on September 26, 2011, 01:47:11 pm
Diva yeah still using them thought it would be a waste to throw away going to buy clear blue for next time. Either way I have made sure we ? a lot between both dates and will for the rest of this week lol! Fingers crossed! How have you found them?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Diva81 on September 26, 2011, 02:04:02 pm
I think that's the best way ?! I went by the app last month and did plenty of ? only to then have a 34 day cycle so prob missed ?! So thought I'd give them a go, 1st attempt nothing showed at all, tried again and got a negative so at least I kind of know what I meant to be looking for! The clear blue does sound alot easier - have you priced them? I'm trying to tell myself to chill out and stop thinking about it so much but it's so hard! X

Post by: LaLaNicole on September 26, 2011, 02:59:06 pm
Sorry for your loss. After 2 ectopics I was left without Fallopian Tubes (FT) about 7 years ago. I had my youngest daughter with 1 FT then lost it when she was 5. I do have 2 wonderful children ages 14 & 12 but my BF and I would like to have one of our own. I start infertility treatment next month in preparation of IVF. The depressing part is cost but my insurance covers some of the expenses and medication so hopefully it will ease the pain. I have just started tracking AF and ??/??/?? is her first day since tracking. I keep praying that when I go to my first appointment on ??/??/?? the doctor tells me it's possible.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 26, 2011, 03:32:41 pm
Okay...I think I'm about caught up in our original post ladies ? If you noticed I missed your update, just let me know and I'll try to fix it asap! Thanks for your patience ?

So how are y'all doing? I started ? AF yesterday morning, but I'm trying to remain positive ? and gear up for the next few months of ? TTC! I'm determined to get preggo by the end of this year again!

To all of you ladies using opks... Try and stay patient with them. It is possible that the ap dates you are using are "off" significantly... Trust your opks ? they will lead you to your accurate?date!! Blessedx1son, no worries... There is no right way to get a ?BFP? I'm sure if you are tracking? and ? BDing when you can on and around then, you will be okay! Trust me, I know these things can take time ?

?Welcome to those ladies I have yet to meet including johanaba, LaLaNicole, JMG and Mrs.Ballerina!! JMG all your symptoms sound very promising!! GL ??? and lots of ??? to you all and tons of baby dust ????????? 

A huge congrats to Cazza, on her ?BFP? wishing you and yours a happy and healthy 9 months ? and C, I hope your appointment is cancelled... Due to a ?BFP? but definitely keep us posted Hun! Same to you Lisa83, remember you tested very early, so it is still possible! I will ??? for you both!! GL ??? and baby dust  ??????????

Popcorn20, I've also never herd of that, but before I take stuff like that personally I talk to my Doctor or Pharmacist to be sure it is?ok...so if you worried, I would give one of them a ? and double check! GL ???

AvonLadyAshley, I ? your DH's ? comes back with good news! I know it probably doesn't make you feel any better, but when I was preggo w/ Ryker... I lost 15lbs before I gained any weight. It was rough, but I know it can happen and your not alone. It still stinks ? though and I hope you start feeling better soon! You got the right idea with the fluids though... Stay ?hydrated? and keep up with you ?vitamins? in the meantime! 

Princessky, after my ectopic, I went back on my schedule like ? work... I surprised myself even! I have been told it can take a few cycles for some ladies though. It is frustrating I'm sure, but I would say don't panic over it yet and keep ? TTC while your cycle gets back to normal, cause ya never know ?

Crystal;) I'm not sure on that kind of ? draw... Did the doc not explain it? Is there anyone else who might be able to give some?insight on this?

Nikki85, unfortunately, it could be your cycles getting back on track from the ?BC pill? but I have my FX for you and ? that is not the case and you get your ?BFP?

Hi saadia
Me & my partner are hoping to move to oz , My father is Australian & currently lives in toowoomba & we just love it in queensland. We are ttc at the moment but are unsure where would be the best place to bring a child too....Australia beats environment hands down however uk is where our friends & family are.
I am hoping that our applications will take my mind of falling as it's proving to be difficult for me .... But sending lots of luck your way xxxx

For a bit over a week I have been getting mild cramping in my lower abdomen ? It isn't consistent and I have had intercourse with no problems but suddenly today my hubby and I had sex and atthe start there was a sharp pain. It went away after a couple of minutes.
Any advice ladies?

Hi Lisa83, have you ever had a cyst before? Not saying that's what it is but I have a cyst on my right ovary and the sort of pain you explained is what I had when it ruptured. It generally ruptures because of intercourse...
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on September 27, 2011, 03:34:01 am
Hi Danni ?
I've never been diagnosed with a cyst before, this has all started happening since I have stopped taking the CP?.
I have made an appointment to see my Gp today, I'm a bit worried and hoping it isn't serious. A friend said it could be because I am ovulating but I wouldn't know. 
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on September 27, 2011, 07:11:13 am
Update...
I went to my Gp & she said that I am ? so there is no need to worry.
My hubby & I are TTC ? we have decided & my doctor sent me off for a blood test to check & make sure my immunization that I had for rubella when I was in year 10 is still in my system other wise I will need a booster.
She said to try every 2nd day & explained the whole fertile\ ovulation deal with me & it makes so much more sense!
Oh & definately not pregnant the test was correct!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on September 27, 2011, 08:58:47 am
Hey Lisa, glad that u have a much better understanding of things, can I ask why u need a booster if the rebella isn't in ur system!? GL to u n ur hubby xo
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on September 27, 2011, 10:23:43 am
Hi Nikki85 ?
Rubella is German Measles..Are you in Australia hun?
If not, over here in year 10 you get ? for it but unfortunately it doesn't always last in your system. It can be harmful to your unborn baby if you get German Measles.
All it takes is a blood test & I'll get the results on Friday & if my immunity is still quite high then I'll be fine, otherwise I'll need a booster rubella shot. If I do need the booster I have to give it 2 months to go through my system.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on September 27, 2011, 10:38:58 am
Yeah I am in Australia, I don't recall getting a shot in year 10 tho... :/ will have to get checked out I think.. Thanks so much. Xo
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on September 27, 2011, 10:56:10 am

Hey ladies!!! Hope all is well :) I see Sbconners got her ?BFP? so a huge congrats!! Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy 9 mos! Also, a big welcome to Becky101! If you have dates to add, just let me know when you can! And to those that have given recent dates, the original post should be completely updated ?

Baby dust ?????????? to those doing all the ? BDing this week! I ??? you all catch that little ? eggy and make some super cute ?summer? babies!! GL ??? Newbie29, Bubs and MrsBallerina!!! 

Lisa83, glad you were able to be seen ? - Honestly sounds like normal aches and pains ? but, did they give you an U/S to see about any cysts? I know when mine ruptured ? I knew for sure what it was because it was horrific and one of the most painful (I have a fairly high tolerance) things... But everyone is different and it could be something that is just bothersome and I ? it goes away (FX without rupturing) soon! Keep us posted Hun, best of ??? and baby dust to you ????????

?iatte & JMG, we are hear for you! You two... please definitely let us know what's up! JMG, is there any history of PCOS in your family? I do know that it is also possible to be that late and still get a ?BFP? although very uncommon... It's not "unheard of." i will ??? for you both and good outcomes - If there is anything I can ? help with or info you need please don't hesitate to let me know ?

PrincessK, have you tested yet?!?! I am ??? this is your ??? month and you get your ?BFP? Please keep me posted and let us know ?

Linziee19, I forgot to mention something... And it just crossed my mind (just now)... When you get a positive OPK and it's WAY LATER than you thought you ?'d... A positive OPK, can sometimes mean a ?positive? HPT!!! I know it doesn't happen often, but if you are getting positive OPKs around the time ? AF would be due... Would guess you could be and would recommend taking and HPT ? So, any other news/symptoms etc? Hopefully this is your ??? month and you get your ?BFP?

Hi everyone. I'm new here. Have just read most of the posts. Amazing the ups and downs and similar experiences we share.
I have a 4 yo dd. Have been wanting another for the last year but my dh has not. He's been pulling out and I have been hoping for an accidental surprise ?.  No such ??.
The good news, this past month he has stopped p/o! My ? is due ??/?? but my cycle varies a lot. I think I ? on ??/??.
Anyway good luck and ??????? to all!!

Sorry I have not bee on lately ladies!  My in laws have been in town and I have been playing hostess!

Missingmyangel - love the idea of getting to know a bit about everyone! So here is my story...

My hubby and I have been married for 13 months. We have been TTC for since we were married and were on the if God wills it plan since we started dating. My favorite ? is a nice glass of wine and my favorite ? is coffee!  My biggest vices are ?and coach?!  We have a beautiful 2(and a half if you ask her) little ?.

Hubby is due home this week and I will begin using my OPKs Thursday! Though there will be LOTS of ?ing as I have not seen him in a month!

Praying ? this is everyone's month! Lots of ?? and ???????? to everyone!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 27, 2011, 06:54:34 pm
?Pixeee, welcome and congrats on the official ? TTC "status!" GL ? to you, lots of ??? and of course baby dust ????????

PrincessK, keep us posted please?!?! I'm so ? excited for you and pray you will get your ?BFP? soon ?

137wife, good to hear from you! Yay, back to ? BDing! The only advice I have on OPKs is be patient with them (if not using digital... I recommend Clear Blue Digital OPKs) the non-digitals take practice to interpret, always follow the directions carefully ? and trust your OPKs over this calendar!

Chels_laker, same advice to you! Some brands say FMU is okay to use, but remember your LH surge almost always starts in the ? afternoon, not ? morning. I test (personally between 1300-1400) but you want concentrated ? urine too, so that means holding your pee from like 900-1300 with out a ? break ? so that's the downside! I also have another post which I believe has some info on false unicorn root (I have not personally used before, but I bumped the "?TTC tips & tricks?" post for you) between that page and any advice ? you get from ladies on here, let me know any specifics you still need and I'll do my best to get you an answer ?

I do have one aunt who has pcos. I have always had a very regular period, this is the first time this has happened. I have no other symptoms of pcos but I will be sure to ask my doctor about it tomorrow just in case. Thank you for your prayers!!! :)
Also, to update your list:
I'm 24 years old. Married 2 months. TTC 2 months. My favorite drink is Diet Coke ;) and I love chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I like music, shopping and accounting, hate bugs and snakes!
Thanks for including me :)
Good luck to all!!

Post by: Pixeee on September 28, 2011, 03:53:51 am
Hi Crystal. They are looking for a progesterone level of at least 15, from what I have read. They might want to adjust your dosage depending on the result. Lots of ???? and ??????????

Hey everyone
Hubby and I have been BD for 6 months now. My ? date was 26/9 and ever since then I have had CM and cramping. Does anyone know what this could mean?  Please help

Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 28, 2011, 04:14:35 am
Just checking in... I will update post with all new info in the morning. I'm so tired and need a spot of sleep before work ?? 

Crystal;) some of the info in the following article is basic and is not super detailed but it might give you a better understanding of progesterone and it's role in conceiving and is in general good info to have ?

Progesterone levels in the blood ? are helpful after ovulation and to find out if you ovulated or not. Low ? progesterone levels are not normal. When you ovulate there is an area in the ovary called "corpus luteum" which is responsible for the production of progesterone.

Low progestone levels below 10 ng/ml usually mean that?has likely not happened or you tested too early, less than a week after?ovulation. Pregnancy cannot be diagnosed from that alone. Progesterone cream ? cannot be used after ovulation to improve ? fertility.

Progesterone levels rise?after ? and the rise can usually be detected about a week after ovulation. There are no "normal" progesterone levels after ovulation. Progesterone levels after?(midluteal, middle of the second half of the cycle) in a non-pregnant patient are generally at least 8-10 ng/ml. Much lower levels usually mean you did not ovulate.

Progesterone levels can change from one day to the other, from ? one hour to the ? next, from one ? laboratory to the next. After you ? eat, progesterone levels can drop by as much as 50%, that's why the blood test ? should be done in the morning ? and before you ? eat. Even on the same day women may have different levels.

Progesterone levels are usually well below 5-10 ng/ml without ovulation.
If you are pregnant, progesterone levels are usually at least 10-12 ng/ml to have a better chance of a good pregnancy outcome and most doctors like to see progesterone levels  ? around 16-18 ng/ml or more though there are many successful ??? pregnancies with lower levels. With ectopic ? pregnancy, progesterone levels are lower when compared with an ? intrauterine pregnancy.

There are differences in opinion as to what to do if progesterone levels are low after ovulation. Some doctors suggest giving progesterone (pills ?, shots ?, or suppositories ?) but many others do not treat unless you have IVF or ? injectable ovulation medications or if there has been proof of a preexisting low progesterone in nonpregnancy cycles and there are ? immune issues leading to ? miscarriages.

?HTH? and the info can be found at: http://www.babymed.com/fertility-tests/progesterone-levels

?Checking Cervical Mucus?

Checking your cervical fluid gives you essential information as to your fertile and peak times during your monthly cycle.  Start checking your cervical fluid on the first day after your ? menstrual period and check it multiple times during the day.  Also be aware of the overall vaginal sensation (wet or dry) you have had throughout the day without physically checking.
Start with ? clean hands.  You are checking a very sensitive part of your body and do not want to risk the chance of infection. 

Take notice of any fluid ? stains on your ? underwear. When you are extremely fertile the cervical fluid is abundant and has a high content of water and will leave a fluid stain in the form a ? circle.  Less abundant non fertile fluid is dryer and tends to form lines ? that are in more of a rectangular shape.

Do a few kegel exercises (squeezing and releasing the vaginal muscles - the same muscles you would use if you were to stop the flow of urination) this will get the fluid ? flowing from the cervix.

Separate your vaginal lips with one hand and with the other hand slip your?middle finger inside the vagina and locate your cervix.  We give more detail on the position and its opening of the cervix and how it will change in shape and in feel in the Cervical Position page.  Press your finger against the sides of the cervix applying a small amount of pressure (do not apply pressure to the point of pain and make sure your nails are not rough and that they are clean) do this three or for times around the cervix and at its opening.  Slowly draw your finger out of the vagina to inspect the fluid.

Rub your middle finger and thumb? together and make a mental note on how it feels.  Does the fluid feel dry or wet?  Is it abundant or stark?  Is it thick or thin?  Does it feel sticky or creamy?  Does it feel slippery like? eggwhites?  Pull apart you middle finger and thumb, does the fluid make little peaks?  Does it Stretch?  Does it gum up or crumble?  Does the fluid remain on your fingers or is it so thin that it falls from your fingertips?  What color is it?  Clear, white or yellow? Does the fluid dry up quickly?

?Make sure not to confuse semen with cervical fluid.  They look and feel very similar.   Semen will dry up very quickly upon your fingertips and is more rubbery is consistency.  It may also tend to be foamy.  Semen is little more white in color rather than clear like eggwhite fluid.  To help you identify the difference, when urinating eggwhite cervical fluid will often hit the water and form into a ball while it sinks to the bottom . 

?Arousal fluid has also been confused with cervical fluid.  Again, they look and feel very similar.  Arousal fluid like semen will dry up quickly upon your fingertips and is ? water soluble.  If confused as to what fluid is what, take the fluid from your fingertips and dip it into a glass of water.  If its is cervical fluid it will form a ball ? and sink?to the bottom, if its arousal fluid it will dissolve.

We realize this sounds like a great deal of information to take in and may seem like you are going to spend a lifetime in the ? bathroom!  Don't get discouraged!  Once you have done it a few times you will find that checking your cervical fluid is very easy and just takes an extra few seconds.  Remember, the information you will gain is a key ? tool in ? conceiving that precious and much longed for ? baby.

Missingmyangel what about my trampoline and nipple questions.

Can jumping on a trampoline cause a misscarage? And what does it mean when one areol is small than the other?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC?he
Post by: MissingMyAngel on September 28, 2011, 06:13:19 pm
Mommy2be, my advice on the trampoline is just avoid it... If you are in your?WW, I advise ladies to treat their bodies as if they were preggo (at least if ? TTC) because you never know! So I advise against trampolines and ? and things of that nature. I doubt it would cause a miscarriage, but why risk it... Ya know? 

As far as your other question... I'm at a loss ? sorry, but I don't have an answer... I know darkening can be a sign, not always, but as far as symptoms of pregnancy in BB's I would say to note size of the BB itself and sensitivity of the whole BB... No studies have ever mentioned nipple tingling and things of that nature in relation to pregnancy signs. If you've been preggo before and know that is a "sure sign" for you personally - I'd say go with it... otherwise, stick to the prominent signs which are:

1. Fatigue ?
2. Gas ?
3. Cramps ?
4. Bloating/Constipation ?
5. Backache ?
6. Increased CM ?
7. Nausea ?
8. Headache ?
9. Tender Breasts ?
10. Sinus Congestion ?

You want to record in your cycle when you get them (what and at how many DPO when they appear etc.) for a few months so you know what is normal before ? AF... And what is not common and could be a sign of being preggo... GL ??? and lots of baby dust ????????

I'm 26 and me and my boyfriend have decided we're ready to start trying for a baby! We've decided for the first few months we'll just have fun with it (and try to keep the pressure away) and then if it doesn't happen we'll start tracking and charting. I'm very excited!!

Hi, missingmyangel thanks for your well wishes. I actually didnt rely on this app for my ov date. I test for ovulation and normally it's either day 16 or 17. But this month I'm sure I've ovulated today on day 13 which is really strange for me. I've only had one BD session to which is worrying because I wasnt starting it until last night then again on sun mon and tues ready for my normal day 17 ovulation. I hope last night and tonight will be enough if I did O today. Ahh so hard to predict isn't it.
Lilly that's annoying you have to wait until dec buy maybe you to will get to cancel your appointment ?? fingers crossed x

You of course do not have to give me info, but if you would like to be on the TTC ? list, I need to be updated when you get ? AF ?, when you expect to ? and when your next ? AF is due. If I don't have updated info from you, I move your name to the ?INFO NEEDED?list (nothing personal at all, I just move your name there until I get a new update or you let me know that you do not want to be on the list anymore - I certainly understand people get busy and have other things to do). I just ask everyone keep me posted ? In addition to that, I have started another part of the post so we can all get to know each other. Remember, if you gave info already and would like to add to or change info you gave me, just let me know and I will update it as soon as I can ? Below is my example of things I included about me so if you want to list some or all of them that's fine!

Hi ladies! I just have a concern, I am now on day 16 and my cycle is usually 27-28 days. And I am still not ovulating. I have been using opk's this month so I am just wondering if anyone has any ideas? We are TTC our 1st! Thanks :)

I ovulated Monday, yesterday afternoon I found a tiny bit of brown blood in my underwear. I had it just that one time and not again. Now today I've been peeing more, I think I feel a bit weird... Not wanting to eat food, a little offish & my boobs are tingling. Could the spotting been implantation bleeding & can u be getting pregnancy symptoms? I've had 3 other pregnancies but no bleeding after ovulation with any of them??? Plz help, 2ww!

Light pink line!  I think I just got a BFP!  Will retest with fmu to double-check. I want to be excited but I can't believe it!!!  Good ???? and tons of??????? to everyone!!

 I'm not sure how regular I am right now. This is only my 4th cycle since coming off the pill (for a blood test to check my hormon levels actually then me and my boyfriend decided we were ready). My first cycle was 25 days, then the next 2 were 39. Assuming I'm sticking with 39 I'm due 10/11. Using a calculator online it predicted I ovulated 9/26, I haven't tracked it but I think I ovulate earlier in my cycle. I don't have a lot of hope for this month, but that's ok!

I'm 26 and from Canada, been with my boyfriend for a little over 2 years (I knew him in high school), and we've been living together for a year (as of tomorrow!) TTC only like a week lol no kids for either of us, love movies and books (among a lot of other things!!) I hate fake people and people who cause a lot of drama! I don't drink alcohol much, but love dr pepper! My fave ice-cream is mint chocolate chip!

Post by: Saadia on October 01, 2011, 01:23:40 pm
Mommy2be, my advice on the trampoline is just avoid it... If you are in your?WW, I advise ladies to treat their bodies as if they were preggo (at least if ? TTC) because you never know! So I advise against trampolines and ? and things of that nature. I doubt it would cause a miscarriage, but why risk it... Ya know?

As far as your other question... I'm at a loss ? sorry, but I don't have an answer... I know darkening can be a sign, not always, but as far as symptoms of pregnancy in BB's I would say to note size of the BB itself and sensitivity of the whole BB... No studies have ever mentioned nipple tingling and things of that nature in relation to pregnancy signs. If you've been preggo before and know that is a "sure sign" for you personally - I'd say go with it... otherwise, stick to the prominent signs which are:

1. Fatigue ?
2. Gas ?
3. Cramps ?
4. Bloating/Constipation ?
5. Backache ?
6. Increased CM ?
7. Nausea ?
8. Headache ?
9. Tender Breasts ?
10. Sinus Congestion ?

You want to record in your cycle when you get them (what and at how many DPO when they appear etc.) for a few months so you know what is normal before ? AF... And what is not common and could be a sign of being preggo... GL ??? and lots of baby dust ????????
.          Hi ,,,, am 11 days over,,,, still waitin,,,, have done preg test today,,,,but :( came negative..... Dont know whats happening,,, feeling nothing yet:( just consipated for about 1 month.

Now I'm really confused! I ovulated on Monday 26th. At 4dpo I had just once a tiny bit of brown spotting and not again. Implantation bleeding??  Now at 5&6dpo I had a temp dip in both days??? What could that mean?? Really too soon for af to come? I know I woke up at 4am to go wee on 5dpo & 2am on 6dpo, could that be the reason for temp dips???

Can't find it now, can anyone tell me what happened and what it was please???  Also just to see this am, I had one OPK left an as on 1ww and know I'm not ? thought I would use it up and got a positive? I know missingmyangel said this could mean bFP, but I did a HPT a couple of days ago and BFN, should I test again or just wait and see? X

Good morning ? ladies!!! A huge congrats to Walkie on her ?BFP? That's so exciting... Wishing you and yours ? a happy & healthy 9 mos!!
????????????

Munki, sorry to hear the ? AF ? showed I will keep FX this next month is your ??? month ?

Welcome ? all who have recently joined including Caje, Tinkerbell24 & Bubbyt! Also GL to all those whose AF ? is late ? I will ??? that you all get your ?BFP's? including PrincessK, Bubbyt & moon_dancer!! PrincessK, btw, have you tested yet? GL ??? and lots of ?... I hope it's a ?BFP?

To anyone on the ?NEED INFO? list, I'm looking for your next expected ?date and/or date AF ? is due. Unfortunately, I can't calculate on my own from your previous AF ? because everyone has a different cycle length ? so when you get a chance anyone who is new that would like to be added or anyone (Crystal;) I think this is what you were asking about) who wants to be updated on the list ?

????????????
Reminder - you also can tell everyone a bit about yourself (as much or as little information as you feel comfortable sharing) and I will add it to the lower portion of the post in the "ABOUT OUR LADIES" section ?
????????????

Lisa83, great news about the Rubella test - congrats! Hopefully you also get your ?BFP? this cycle too!!

Yobrien, your temp chart would def be affected by those wake ups... I would just keep going as usual to try to stay on track and make a note of which days were affected! GL ??? though, sounds like it possibly was IB that you experienced ??? only time will tell though! FX ? AF stays away ? from you an it's your month for a ?BFP? You also Linziee19!! I would wait till you're closer to AF ?, it is still early! FX that the ? AF stays away from you too!! Baby dust to you both ??????????

Beebees & Diva81, I felt the same way! I was relieved & excited to know I'm at least ?'ing, lol ? It is great progress... Just curious, were you where you though you were? Or was the actual ? date way off from the ovulation predictor you were using before? Just interesting to know your thoughts and I encourage all ladies to use OPKs when you are truly ? TTC. GL ? to you both and lots of baby dust ????????

Post by: Diva81 on October 03, 2011, 06:44:57 pm
Hi missingmyangel - it is a great feeling & I swapped to the clearblue opk's and that smiley face made my day! The app predicted ?on 28th or 29th I think but got the positive on the 1st so only a few days but guess those fe days make all the difference! Only thing im dissapointed is that we didnt get a chance to do much ? - everyday life has got in the way I'm afraid but I'm staying positive it still could happen! Lots of baby dust to all ????????????

?Diva81 at least I'm not the only one! And MissingMyAngel, you're right, we are fortunate to be getting this first positive which will hopefully lead on to the next big one. As for dates, I don't usually track my dates (except by this Ap for this post), I follow the signs I notice in my body. It was reassuring to see what I perceive to be ? signs are actually correct.
Linziee19, has the pain stopped? I hope it was just a one-off for you...

Post by: Lilly on October 04, 2011, 09:59:31 am
Hi Nikki I initially used first response , it was fine. A lot of women on here recommend clear blue digital. I now use eBay cheapies - they work just as good as the first response!
Moon dancer: you usually ovulate 12-24 ( I'm pretty sure that's what it is) after you get a positive opk. We technically f you start BD before a positive and for the next 2 days you will be more than covered!!

Has anyone heard of B6 improving fertility or increasing your LP? I read somewhere that women taking at least 10mg of B6 were less likely to experience morning sickness and nausea, so I was like "what the hell?" now that I was looking in to it I found out that my pills (100mg) are actually at the top of the safe limit, and then found out it can increase your LP and ferility (apparently some women have LPs that are too short so pregnancies result in miscarriage). Just curious if anyone else has heard this?

So looks like we only had a chance to baby dance once this month. We are at a stand still almost. From my previous post I was having a hard time with my husband telling him and sharing with him how much we want a Family and then him not being able to preform! So this month I never said awooed and everytime I tried to make love he was tired or it wasn't the right time. So tonight he caught me crying and couldnt understand why so I told him. How are we going to have a family if we don't even have sex on the right days?? O don't Blame him for not understanding but it's stressful when you know you haven't given it your all! I guess better luck next month

.  I'm the same as you this month! Dp been I'll then tired and irritable and I don't want to tell him we HAVE to now as it does ruin the mood somewhat but we've ? twice and I'm worried that it's nowhere near enough! It is disappointing but I'm just keeping fx and thinking there's always next month! Oh the joys of ttc ?

Hey Lisa! I gave in and decide to use opk's have been since sat as I'm not 100% sure when I'm meant to ?... And no luck as yet... Not that I have really been expecting it tho haha it's probably more likely (if I am at all !) to be next week... However BDing every 2nd/3rd nyt hoping to 'catch' the ?.. Hopefully it's not too much tho ? but DF loves it, haha says gotta get all the 'practice' we can in before it happens!! LOL

Well my DH and I BD'ed lots this month so fingers crossed it'll be our turn, but instead of telling him he had too I made it a competition to see how many nights in a row we could have sex and I found he was more than willing to go for it then if I told him he had to do it night after night, turned into a heap of fun that kept the spark and romance in it rather then making it a chore or job, just remember to have fun and spice it up ttc otherwise like my DH they don't want to cos they feel like they're only wanted for one thing, but I know how frustrating it can be we've been ttc for nearly 2yrs.

Well my period is more messes than I thought!! AF showed her ugly head today! Oh well, I wasn't too hopeful for this month, but excited to start again!!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Yobrien on October 06, 2011, 04:32:27 am
I'm out this month. My period was due 12th and well today is the 5th or 6th day that my temps dropped way below my coverline & I was only 6dpo. So it shows my hormones are screwed again, cause I've got PCOS and when I go off the pill it goes screwed. I don't get my period naturally cause it makes me stop ovulating. Doc said if I haven't got it by Monday then she will start me on Provera & Climid again.

I'm excited because I know it works for me. I conceived my last miracle angel on second round of Provera / Clomid. RIP baby!!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??

Congrats to the BFP??
1 more day until the dreaded AF? shows up.I don't think it will be on time though.
My friend suggested today that I start taking folate tablets. Ellevit I think they are called, has anyone started taking them?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on October 06, 2011, 08:09:42 am
I'm taking those Lisa... They seem to be ok, if I don't have them with food (or if I don't eat first) then makes me feel a bit blank for 5-10mins but other than that they are good :) FX AF doesn't show tomorrow (or at allfor the next 9 months) ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 06, 2011, 08:14:01 am
Here's hoping! I'm going to buy a ? test kit for next month & buy some ellevit ?

Hi everyone. Congratulations to all the BPFs!! ?. Hey Lilly, I'm hangin in there. I'm in the ?WW now. I'm 6 dpo. I'm so tempted to test but I know it's far too early to test. I think I stuffed up this month though. I only BD twice. The day I got a pos OPK and the day after. Hope it's ok. I'm counting down until the lap. I've filled out the paper work, rang my health insurance, booked in eye lash extensions all ready for it secretly hoping i jinx it and get a BPF before I go in ??? good luck all

My hubby? is so adorable, we were out walking the ? & then ? came into the conversation & he was saying that when he thinks of baby names it's always girls names & he was telling me what he likes. He then said that he reckons we'd have a girl first. 
Maybe it's a sign, I'm not sure but I enjoyed talking about it?



Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 06, 2011, 10:32:09 am
Congrats on the BFP's!!
Elevit could make you feel funny cos of the iron in it, esp If you don't eat with it. Multivitamins are best taken at night too, something I didn't know til recently!
C- I know, I'm 5dpo, and would love to hold out until af is due to test but DP is going away at 12dpo so I would say I will give in then haha!!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on October 06, 2011, 02:42:21 pm
Thanks Lily did not know it was better to take them at night - is it bad if they make you feel funny??
Lisa- I have been doing mine in the arvo between 12:30-1:30.. I've read on here (I think in this post) that's it's better to Do them in the arvo! GL xo
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 07, 2011, 06:04:29 am
Thanks Lilly, good luck? to you also! 

Thanks for your advice Nikki?

No signs of ? AF yet, generally I get a headache or pains in the tummy, but nothing yet. Hoping it stays away but I highly doubt it.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Mrs Smith on October 07, 2011, 07:57:38 am
Hey, TTC as well. Currently 2 days late but done a test 2 days before AF due and it was a BFN ? still hoping AF doesn't come xx

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 07, 2011, 10:02:57 am
Nikki- when they make you feel funny is that in the stomach? That wouldn't be good, maybe always take them with food. You might be sensitive to iron supplements.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??

Hi ladies!
Well, it looks like I skipped my period last month. I'm thinking due to stress. I took a couple weeks to relax and destress...hubby was great and helped make life easy! Finally AF came yesterday! I'm excited to start again this month and hopeful that we may have some luck with the clearblue fertility monitor. Good luck and baby dust to all!! ??
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on October 07, 2011, 04:14:47 pm
Hey ladies!! Hope y'all had a better beginning to the week than me! I'm just getting over ? strep throat, but I'm feeling much better lately! So I'm sorry I was MIA for a few days ?

Yobrien, good luck ? with the clomid! They do say... "go with what you know works" and I hope it works again for you ? Baby dust your way Hun ???????????

Lisa83, I take prenatals... But any ?multivitamin? with folic acid should be okay, just be sure to double check with you doc! Also OPKs are best done in the afternoon (that's when your surge starts) but you will likely have to hold your ?pee? for a while (to get a the most concentrated sample) but some OPKs are okay to do in the morning... always read the instructions on the kind you have and also, they give you ?hints & tips? for a reason! Try your best to utilize the suggestions they give whenever possible ?

Almost forgot... Welcome ? to Mrs Smith!! I will keep my FX for you! Have you tested again yet? GL ??? and baby dust your way Hun! Please keep us posted too ??????

????????????
CONGRATS to Bubbyt who just got her ?BFP? I will ? for a happy ? and healthy 9 months for you & yours!
????????????

As far as everyone else... How are y'all?! Lots of ?, ? & baby dust to all ???????????
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MissingMyAngel on October 07, 2011, 05:07:45 pm
???MY UPDATE???
Okay ladies... I'm asking for your opinions/thoughts ? Do any of you ladies believe in signs... Honestly? I try not to because I sometimes feel like I could get a sign from anything (the TTC craziness in me) - This is the deal though... I keep seeing 11:11 both am & pm (not every single day but OFTEN & mostly the last month or so) and just recently looked at my calendar and I'm due to ovulate next month 11/11/11 of this year. Now, I should be ovulating this month any time, but it should be on my right side (no tube - due to ectopic), so next month on 11/11/11 should be my left (good side - w/ tube). I am always spot on with my ? dates, because I'm sickeningly "regular" which can be both good and bad...

So... Am I over thinking this or would you too take it as a sign? Or am I officially TTC Crazy? Lol, any thoughts appreciated ? and yes, I'm completely serious!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Phaedra on October 07, 2011, 05:43:27 pm
I believe in signs ? but most importantly you do! Maybe its all in you're head and you are TTC crazy, but that doesn't mean it won't happen! I think that sometimes signs are our bodies and minds letting us know it's ready for something. So if you conceive middle of November 9 months you'd be due August or September sometime right? Any important dates around then?? Lol
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Mommy2be on October 07, 2011, 09:06:49 pm
Missingmyangel here is an up date on me. Taking a month or 2 off from baby making. My DH just had knee surgery and it hurts he to BD. And yes I believe in signs. I get premonitions and I had one before I got preggo with my son 6 years and 7 1/2 months ago. Mine was his  duedate 2/14/05.   Now that I am trying again I am having all sorts of dreams.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 07, 2011, 11:27:45 pm
Hi MMA, yep I definitely believe in signs, and 'feelings'. Saying that I also think I get feelings when I don't sometimes too, esp. When ttc! So basically I reckon signs exist but we can scew things to look like signs too! All the best hun, if anyone deserves a bfp it would have to be you xx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 08, 2011, 02:09:51 am
Hello MissingMyAngel?

Most definitely I believe in signs!
I think sometimes the signs is what keeps us excited & keeps us going?

I believe you may have some sort of a sign & most definitely follow your intuition! 

I have had some signs lately, I keep dreaming about babies? & hubby & I randomly spoke about baby? names 2 days ago. 

Don't give up honey & I really hope your dream comes true soon ??

Hi MissingMyAngel I am in to minds aswell I think I like to hope that signs exist :) I have been seeing 11:11 and also 112 for a while now but is the same as you, it's not everyday but it's often and my birthday is also on 11/11 and I was born at 11 o'clock lol so I'm hoping that 11 is my lucky number :D

Hi Ladies,
Wow what an amazing group of beautiful people you all are! My DH and I have never used any protection in 5 years and never been pregnant. I was diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) when I was 14 so we knew we would struggle getting pregnant we have been TTC for about a year now and no luck, we have been to a fertility clinic but then my DH was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes so BM got put on the back burner. He now wants to try again but I get so down about it not happening for us! Just glad I'm not the only one struggling and having a tough time achieving my ultimate goal of being a mother.
Keep up the positive vibe ladies we all deserve this xxxx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Linziee19 on October 08, 2011, 07:18:38 am
AF ? due tomorrow!! ? really hoping this is my month, but not feeling it! Trying not to test and just wait and see as can't stand any more bloody BFN's ?.
Just going back to the vitamins: both DF and I are taking 'Sanatogen mother & father to be' have been for a good few months now, before I was just taking tesco prenatal multi vitamins. If anyone can recommend better let me know! I am happy to change for anything that will help better!
Missingmyangel as for signs yes, I do believe! Yours sound like pretty strong signs, ?and lots of ?'s & ? that it will be your time!
? congratulations ? to all you lovely ladies with BFP's!! Have a happy & healthy 9 months!! ?
For everyone else ????????????

I'm hoping to get lots of BD ? next week. My BF works away a lot but he's home next week and ? is due on Saturday. Only problem is we're moving house next weekend so not the best timing for finding the time and keeping things stress free?!

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Mrs Smith on October 08, 2011, 09:22:33 am
Hi ladies, thanks for the welcome missing my angel. Tested yesterday again but still BFN ? think AF is on it's way now though as had some spotting and pains feel like usual period pains. I've got adenomyosis so get excruciating pains during period and it feels like that. Guess there's always next time. Trying to remain positive and hubby is a star at doing that. We have been trying for 7 months now and it's hard when everyone around us are having babies but we knew it would be harder for us when TTC as I lost my right tube during an operation to remove a cyst. Lots of luck and Baby dust to you all xx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 08, 2011, 10:02:06 am

 I'm not much of a drinker but will have a drink or 2 now and then.

No sign of AF? yet, early this morning we BD? & I thought it would have brought it on as it has done in the past but nothing. I feel it probably won't be this month due to it only being a short time off the pill but I can't help but hope that it's a BFP. I'm going to give it until ??/?? & then I'll test?

Hi everyone. I have had issues for the last 4 days trying to get into the forum. I tried many many times. I deleted the app then re installed. Has anyone else had this problem ?? I emailed them but have not heard since.
So now I'm 9 Dpo. I got a neg this morning. Yesterday I had brown cm but it's cleared up now. Out of the last 8 months of trying I've had this 4 or so times a week after ov. I have a feeling that the embryo is starting to implant but then fails. With my first P I did have implantation spotting. FX this one hangs around. Good luck to everyone. I'm so glad I'm back in here

I too have had problems with the app! I stupidly only kept my data on here and lost it all so advise is keep it safe!

Still no AF yet, not testing yet going to resist temptation too early!

Hey Lisa! I know it's great that your r in Aus to!! I'm not to bad, have been using opk's but am yet to have a + so I'm thinking maybe I haven't done it right or have missed it...as I'm due in 10days...so you'd think I would have got a + by now...unless I didn't ? but im hoping thats not the case ?.. we will see.. ? We have still been BDing every second day or so, so hopefully we have got it that way but I'm not holding my breathe! Lol I hope we get our BFPs soon aswell!! ?

P.s. When you came off the pill did you experience regular pains (like AF)??? it's been just over 3 weeks now since being off the pill and I get these aches/pains/headaches nearly daily ? xo

Sorry to hear ? about af.
This is the slowest week. Can't wait until Friday to see if af comes. Today I'm 10 dpo. BFN. But I still have the brown spotting. I'm hoping it's implantation. It has to be too early for af coz I def ovulated on day 13. FX all. ??

Post by: Lisa83 on October 10, 2011, 06:32:02 am
Hey Nikki ?
Oh that's strange, you would certainly have to have ? by now.. I haven't done an opk yet, but I saw one at the chemist the other day that has 7 in it & a pregnancy test. Still no AF? yet, 3 days late. Been getting weird feelings in my lower abdomen. Not period pain, just flutters, strange?
Well when I went off the pill a day later I got my AF?, worst period pain ever!! After AF? ended I was fine but then about a week & a half later I kept getting cramping. It got a bit to much so I went to the doc & she said I was ?. I'm not sure if that was the case, but we BD? anyway lol?
I haven't had it since, so maybe she was right, I'm not sure. Last week I did get some breast tenderness, they really hurt, just putting my bra on was painful, the pain was more in my nipples. I don't know what caused that but they are ok now.

Hi nikki, I had the same thing when I went off the pill. I suffered from shocking headaches! It lasted about a month or so it got to the point where I was contemplating going back on the pill but I persevered and it did go away I also had cramping and pains and my first cycle was 5 weeks after stopping pill. It has been a bit irregular ever since. Ranging from 42 days to 32 days, hopefully yours is more predictable. I see you've started opk's already. Which brand are you using? I'm going to start using them if I haven't conceived by chrissy.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on October 10, 2011, 09:28:58 am
Hey Lisa & Patiently Waiting
Those all sound like positive signs Lisa!! I have my FX for you when you go to test :) that's what I thought s rely if I was ?ing it'd have been by now... I got AF 6 days after I stopped the pill which made it a 24 day cycle & have had the on/off cramping... Well it's not so much cramping but bloaty & aching in my lower stomach/pelvis n back.. It's weird but P/waiting u give me hope that it'll pass..!! I have been doing opk's, I wasn't going to until net year but I got curious... I have used the first response (Lisa I think this is the one u saw with HPT) and clearblue digital... No luck as yet.. I've started doing it in the morning as it was getting hard to do it in the arvo at work & having to hold my pee was difficult cos I drink a fair bit of water, lol.. Well see if it makes a difference.. It says AF is due in 9 days (if it follows the 24 day cycle) or 14 (if it follows 28 day cycle) so I'm not sure when to expect it, lol agh oh so confusing!! Lol I think if I don't get a ? whilst using this lot of opk's I'll give em up until next year ? GL again Lisa!! Must let us know if u decide to test, but hold out as long as u can :D lol

Hi ya Nikki?
Sounds like you are a bit over the place since you have come off the pill, must be so frustrating for you? I ? that it corrects itself soon for you.
Yeah I was thinking that today about the signs I've had but I keep reminding myself that the signs are very similar to AF? so I don't wanna get excited. I also have the fact that I only went off the pill 5 weeks ago. 
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 10, 2011, 09:58:33 am
Hi guys! I always get really sore nipples or breasts a week after ovulation for a few days. I think it's because that is when your progesterone levels are highest in your cycle. Not sure if i'm imagining it but mine are still be a bit sore.. Been about 5 days, they were never really bad hurting but also have never been this long. I really don't want to be imagining this but also don't want go get my hopes up to be crushed on Sunday when af due :-(

Post by: Lisa83 on October 10, 2011, 10:10:01 am

I just did a bit of research & it's possible to fall pregnant straight after coming off the pill. Everybody is different but it happens?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 10, 2011, 10:49:52 am
Maybe I will do a test Saturday too, 1 day before AF due. Then we can all be depressed or cheering together!! What ya reckon c, you in?? :-)

Hey Lisa it is defiantly possible to become pregnant straight after stopping the pill. I did. I stopped last year in September , then 4 weeks later I got a positive result.  unfortunately I did end up having a MC at 7 weeks. But that was nothing to do with the pill. Just bad bad luck
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Linziee19 on October 10, 2011, 12:14:58 pm
So, what I thought was AF wasn't (yet!) have had really bad heartburn today, AF 1 day late. Trying to resist testing as I know as soon as I buy the test AF will show! Arrgghh why is this so hard! ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on October 10, 2011, 12:55:27 pm
Thanks Lisa I hope things sort themselves out soon too ? I agree- it's def possible to fall preg after comin off the pill- if ppl can fall preg on the pill then I'm sure it's possible! But I get the whole trying not to get your hopes up! ? that's awesome that you guys are testing together! I ? that you all get a positive result this Saturday.. Linzie you should test with the other girls on sat ?

Thanks Nikki, you're a gem? 

I spoke to a friend today at work & she said she fell pregnant straight after going off the pill & her sister fell after 7 days off the pill?

I have been peeing an unbelievable amount the last couple of days. In the last 2 hours I've been 5 times?  

I keep getting weird feelings down there, it's not period pain cos it's not hurting me, It is little twinges. Keep getting alot of gas to? spry for tmi haha

Hi Becca_anne? Don't hold back here, feel free to express yourself hun xxx

Hey hows everyone going? Good luck ? to everyone testing soon. Hey Lisa83 I had lots of gas too when ?AF was meant to come but instead it was a my BPT so FX thats a sign for you too. I'm getting ready for GP appointment on thursday to see what to do next, I'm a bit nervous though. Hope this is a big month for everyone and lots of baby dust ???? to all. ?xox

I think I'm out.. I'm scared to test on sat but I did promise... :-(
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 11, 2011, 10:37:02 am
Hi Shelzy88? oh wow really?? 

I hope to get a BFP, I have the signs, but they can be so similar to AF?, there's nothing major that stands out to me. How long did you wait until you did a test? I know that for me it isn't completely unquestionable being we did so much BD? straight after I went off the pill. It was pretty much every night almost. 
Goodluck? for your appointment, it would be so exciting!!! ?

Hi Lilly?

I haven't actually tested at all since I have been late. I was tempted to buy a test today but thought I'd give it a bit longer so I'll stick to Saturday morning. I also didn't want to do it to soon and risk getting an incorrect result. 

Can your weight fluctuate? I was 4kgs heavier today then I was yesterday ? 
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 11, 2011, 10:59:56 am
Wow 4kg is a big difference. Was it the same time of day? Using the same scales? Wearing approx the same weight of clothes?
If it is fluid build up some people er it at the time of AF,  I have no idea about pregnancy Maybe it's the same???
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 11, 2011, 11:04:55 am
Yep Lilly, same time of day and I do it with no clothes, again sorry tmi lol.
Scales could be buggered to, but I thought it was odd?

Did some googling before, I have all the signs of being pregnant, except for the spotting that you can get. The peeing one is major. We went and saw a movie and I had to pee 3 times!
I'm trying not to get my hopes up but it's so hard not to
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 11, 2011, 11:07:48 am
Maybe buy a test and test tomorrow? Actually thurs so you have your morning pee. Im so excited for you, I hope it's a BFP !!

Post by: Becca_anne on October 11, 2011, 11:30:33 am
Thanks Lisa! ? I'm the same as you went off the pill and went at it like it was the Olympics lol! And now my cervix is refusing to come back down and I have what feels like a sack (heck knows what to call it) kinda above but infront of my cervix like a water balloon I guess (sorry for tmi) I'm approx 8 days late and cm is abundant too! I got alot of Nausia and gas and the constant want for potato scallops. A bit lost what to do ?

Ladies reading your post's bring tears to my eye's ttc is so draining I went off the pill at 25 and back on at 30 due to moving to remote location. You don't want to get pregnant in the desert everyone said. Well DH couldn't  put up with me on the pill after only a month and said no more? we where pregnant the next month? DS is 5 and no birth control since he was 14 months old and still nothing. I give up I really do? 12 years we have spent ttc and my mind can not take it anymore?. We have our DS and I guess he is it? I hate when people say oh you only had one child. I guess you all know how I want to reply to them. I wish you all good luck ? ?and loads of baby dust ???? but this mummy is hanging up our baby making for good bd ? will only be for fun in this house. oh and I guess by the mood I'm in the ? ? is only days away. I hope October is the month for all of you ?. Off to the Dr next week to talk birth control.?

Lisa, it must be so hard to keep a level head.. I say hold out if you can but otherwise I would be testing! Does sound promising!! ? can't wait to be in your position :D however if I'm late on this AF it's probably only because it hasn't regulated itself yet... And shelzy88 yours signs sound positive to! A big fat GL to all that are testing!! ? ??

Hi Nikki, it took me a long time to get it down Pat since I was 16.. Had a case of polycystic ovarian syndrome but a way you can check is by looking it up on google or even asking your gp. It can be a helpful tool to chart the big o and when af is coming just based on position and firmness ? I'm hoping I'm lucky this month high and closed and a bit firm. Been like that for 2 weeks now! I can give u tips via inbox if it's helpful ?

Hey Lisa83 its was about 2 to 3 days before AF was due that it started for me. The only other sign that was a bit different for me was I normally get cramping a few days before and my BB stop hurting , but instead I had no cramping and still sore BB so I was curious. I gave in and tested when AF was 1 day late. The pink line was faint but it was definately there. GL ? when you test, I have my FX for you.

??Hi Girls??

Lilly- I'm definitely going to wait until the weekend. Just want to give it that little bit longer & also I have the weekend off?I don't wanna test at 5:30am & then have to work, especially if it's a BFP?

Becca_Anne- What do you mean about your cervix? You are so similar to me. Last week my boobs hurt heaps even when lightly touched. This week I've been peeing heaps & my appetite has increased. I feel really bloated & look bigger around the tummy. Very tired to, more then normal? It has been cold here at night and I have been waking up in sweats! Last night my chest was wet from sweating?
When I went off the pill I got a period straight away, went for 4 days & was normal flow. We BD? heaps as soon as I went off it. I got cramps & the doctor told me I was ovulating & we had BD? heaps before, through and after ovulation. The chance is there but I'm nervous!?

Nikki-Thank you? It does seem promising to me as I have all the signs but I do have a small doubt as it could be because my period?hasn't regulate itself since coming off the pill. 

C-I'm so sorry to hear? I hope you are ok xxx 

Lilblondie-So scary/exciting isn't it??

Shelzy-Wow, reading what you had for symptoms sounds so much like me! When my boobs started hurting me it was a bit of a shock to the system. I've never had it, not even with periods?

MissingMyAngel- I hope all your signs are exactly that, signs & a BFP comes of it? Hope you are feeling better, good to see you back xxx

Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts. I'm not 100% sure it's AF coz I only had a slight bit of red spotting this morning but I'm sure it's the start of it. This forum is great for all your support. Im so grateful to you all.

Hey crystal, only a few months ago I realized I got brown mucous a few days before AF... Maybe it's just that?? I hope not though!!

Lilblondie- twitching eyelids can be a magnesium deficiency.. Are you taking pregnancy vitamins??

Lisa- don't stress! Impossible i know!! Aren't preg hormones higher in morning anyway??

C- I'm doing ok... Haven't got much hope I dint think. I know people say early pregnancy is the same as AF signs, but I have had a sore neck today which I get a few days before AF, I have that  'weird' feeling around my uterus I guess you would say,  that AF is coming, and I'm depressed about AF coming. Much the same as every other month. Sigh.. I guess you never know but I don't have much hope :-(.  I low what you mean about excited, I'm going to Thailand next week much rather it be in the 2ww ringer it over with but oh well!! DP Hopefully having his sperm test while we are in the city before we fly out yay!

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??

Yeah I would def take a multi like elevit , replace it with folic acid unless you have a history of spinal conditions in family!

grrr had to delete this app again & more probs getting in the forum. Anyway rant over - sorry!
Well AF is due anyday & it's def coming so I'm out this month :( gutted for those who are in the same boat! Let's all eat some cake & look forward to getting back on it next month. Seriously though if anybody has found the secret to not thinking about TTC a thousand times a day - please share :) xxxxxxxxxx

Post by: C on October 13, 2011, 08:09:14 pm
Diva81- please share haha. I don't think there is a way to stop thinking about it. I find it's in my face everyday. My best friend is 24w. We started trying the same month. Got our AF together, ovulated same day. But I'm still waiting. She only tried for 2 months. It's just not fair.
Today is my official start day. Sorry missingmyangel could you rebot me for today the 14/10.
Lilly will you have access to this app whEn your away?
Who is still in for the test tomorrow? I pray for you guys it's positive

I've got a girly weekend planned so hoping to take my mind of it for a bit anyway.
Lots of luck for those still waiting to test ????????????

Hi girls ?

Omg I couldn't get into the forum for 2 days, devastated. 

So I did a test in the morning & it to was negative, had a feeling it would have been but disappointing? all the same.
Still haven't got my period, yet keep getting pregnancy signs so I went to my docs yesterday & I am off for a blood test today to find out.
If it's not pregnancy then it's just the long wait for my period to come. I have never wanted it to come as much as I want it to now! 

? & ????? baby dust to all xxxx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 13, 2011, 11:17:10 pm
Hey, nah I couldn't get in to this app either. C I won't have access to this app after wed so will check back in when we are all ovulating!!
I have a sore neck again today and  BD last night and there was a bit of pinkish/orange mucous so looks like I won't be testing tomorrow either :-(

Goodluck today Lisa, I hope you get some good news soon!!!
C yeah I hear you, originally my friend and I were going to start ttc at the same time and were always saying hoW we were going to look after each others babies so we could both work a few days. She is due to have her little girl in 5 weeks :-(
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 14, 2011, 12:12:02 am
Thanks Lilly ?
I pretty much think the outcome of the blood test will be a negative but in prepared for it. Never knew waiting for a result on the stick would be so nerve racking, I hated it.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Crystal;) on October 14, 2011, 01:36:18 am
Hi everyone!! Seems like I'm not the only one losing faith. Just trying to stay positive.
Lilly: as far as the brown discharge it started Tuesday and left today. No other discharge noted. So I'm curious whats going on with my body.. I hate being irregular ?. I called my Dr and he says that it's just old blood and that My period doesn't officially start until I see red.. So I'm just frustrated.. It seems like all my friends are fertile Myrtle and I am not. Sorry to vent I just wish I knew what was wrong..
GL?? to everyone TTC. Lots of baby dust to all of us.

Waiting for my blood test? 
There's a pregnant lady waiting to, they seem to be following me everywhere today, I served 3 at work?
Right this second I have some cramping going on down there, sooo annoying!!!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Linziee19 on October 14, 2011, 06:58:32 am
So I lost access to this app to so frustrating! Anyway still no sign of AF! Tested yesterday and BFN! 5 days late now, and my last AF was a weird one too, was late and only had 2-3 days of very very light spotting so it's 2 months with no real period! What is wrong with me!! ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??

You ovulate after your period hun xx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on October 14, 2011, 08:15:48 am
I also lost access to this app for 2 days... Was devastated to think I wouldn't be able to chat with you ladies and follow your stories!!! But I'm back on... Phew!!
Lisa- how'd your results go? I know what you mean about preg ladies everywhere... I have 3 of them at work...!!
C- that sucks that you officially started today!! :(
Lilly- I hope you have a fantastic holiday and must deserved r&r
Diva81- ladies weekend sounds like a perfect distraction!!
Well I am waiting for AF to come now, apparently I ?'d on the 12th... I  have no idea when she will show... So I will have no idea if I'm 'late' or not... But I'm not expecting anything this month... I had a bit of whitish CM today- what could that mean??
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 14, 2011, 08:28:33 am
Hey Nikki?

Oh same, I kept getting "forbidden 403" for 2 days, couldn't get in so I contacted support.

I had my blood test today Nikki, results on Monday, my arm is so sore? I think it'll be a negative

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: shelzy88 on October 14, 2011, 08:40:06 am
Hey, I couldnt get into the forum either, it sucked. I had my first appointment yesterday and got bloods taken to confirm the pregnancy and test for all the other stuff they do now. I won't get the results until Monday though, but the Dr doesn't think it will be negative, because I already got my BFP. Everyone who is still TTC keep faith, it will happen. ?????? to you all.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on October 14, 2011, 09:19:46 am
That's the error msg i got aswell... But I didn't know how to contact support hahaha.

Oh bummer, I thought they might have rushed them through.. Ohwell just relax Over the weekend (as much as you can) and try not to let it worry you!!! :)
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 14, 2011, 10:09:42 am
I think I'm pretty much over it now,if it comes back negative that's ok, I'm expecting it..It'll just mean a waiting game until my next period comes.

Hi ladies, have been catching up on what's happening for you all and can totally relate to those feeling a bit disheartened this month... AF arrived early for me this month and only 9 days after ? which means I had absolutely no hope...have no idea why luteal phase was so short. Some days this just feels tough. ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Veniana on October 14, 2011, 12:13:38 pm
This may be tmi for some, but
I know how you feel! ? AF ? was expected today but on Monday I started to have a dark brown discharge (bleeding), this was a dark brown on Monday and tuesday, saw alittle red in there on Wednesday but by Wednesday night it was back to brown discharge (bleeding)! Yesturday (Thursday) I still had brown discharge (bleeding) but it was lighter and bleeding stopped last night! AF ? usually last 4 days and is kinda heavy with clots! But this month there was no clots and barely much blood on the pads! So confusing and fustrating!!  I called the dr's office for a nurse to call me and the receptionist says I should take a HPT but there may be nothing to worry about! But if I am still worried to call back for the nurse!

Beebees- i dont have much experience with all this but i know it must be difficult- some days more than others! I've just come off the pill and I don't think my body liked it very much as I ovulated on day 21?!? So I'm not sure when I should expect AF... So I'm with you, I think I'm out this month!!
Veniana- I would take a HPT also... They say it's not proper period til it's all bright red... It could be implantation Bleeding that you got and it's not unheard of for women to bleed a bit in the early Stages of pregnancy... I'd take a test!
Chin up ladies and don't give up... even tho it's easier said than done!  I wish you both the best of luck! Xo
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Beebees on October 14, 2011, 10:39:38 pm
Hi Veniana, did you try a HPT? Given that it was not like your usual AF is a bit unusual, might be worth a try.
Thanks Nikki85, better luck next month hey? ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 14, 2011, 11:21:21 pm
Hello ladies?
 hope you are all well?
I just finished work, meant to be my day off but had to go in for a few hours, so sleepy!

I have just read a thread and I cannot believe how many of you have had false negatives with HPT's!!? I'm actually thinking that if that's the case I still have a chance at being pregnant and the HPT just couldn't detect it. I have no idea how far along I'd be as we were like rabbits when I came off the pill, but there's still a bit of hope that I'll hold onto for a bit longer. It has been 7 days and no period and I am still getting cramping. 
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 14, 2011, 11:28:47 pm
So excited for Monday for you! how far along you are is counted from the first day of your last cycle. So if you have a 28 day cycle and your a week late you would be 5 weeks! :-)
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 14, 2011, 11:37:00 pm
That's a tough one because I started skipping  my period while I was on the pill. I havent actually had a period in a few months so I have no idea what my cycle is now. Before I started skipping my period I was 28 days. I got a period straight after I stopped the pill last month and it was a proper period, bright red.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Patiently waiting on October 15, 2011, 01:16:37 am
Hi Lisa,
Hopefully there is still a chance for u this month. Skipping your bleed whilst on the pill won't effect anything as it isn't a real period it's only a withdrawal bleed. You don't ovulate whilst on the pill it's just your uterus lining shedding every month. GL for monday

So AF? was due to arrive today but still nothing, did a hpt on Monday but got a BFN but I'm wondering if it was to early to tell, cos all the normal symptoms that come with AF haven't shown their ugly heads so fx ???gl??  my BFP arrives in the next few days!!!

Post by: Wishing_N_Hoping on October 15, 2011, 04:24:26 am
Hi ladies, it has been awhile since I've posted on here so I thought I'd give u all an update. Been ttc for about 9 months but still no luck. Don't think I am ovulating, so I went to docs 2day got a blood test and have to have n ultra sound to rule out pcos. Get results of blood test on Tuesday. So fx that everything is all fine. Congrats to every1 with bfps and goodluck and don't give up to those ttc.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Veniana on October 15, 2011, 06:33:03 am

Hi Beebees,

I did take a HPT Thursday night but it was a "BFN"!!! So i guess I'm gonna wait a Little to recheck!! So confussing to have what I'm think was AF? and wonder if it really was!! Never had AF? arrive and it be all dark brown blood!! So weird and confusing!



Hi Veniana, did you try a HPT? Given that it was not like your usual AF is a bit unusual, might be worth a try.
Thanks Nikki85, better luck next month hey? ?

Hi everyone. I'm gonna complain to about this app failing. I've been stuck to for a couple of days of not being able to get in. I feel a bit lost when I can't get in. I don't want to lose contact with you all until everyone gets there positives!! Maybe there is a better forum or chat we could all move to??
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 15, 2011, 11:08:38 am
I have some sort of bleeding at the moment. Not sure if it is AF? or not but I have some cramping going on down there. 
I think the blood test was a waste of time as I don't think I am pregnant & that's ok with me. I'm just glad to have some sort of movement going on down there instead of not knowing. ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 15, 2011, 11:18:04 am
I feel for u Lisa. It's just not fair. Why can't we just get a BFP the day we af is due or just get af on it's due date instead of this crap of not knowing which way it is going to go. I've had brown spotting 7 DPO , 4 out of the last 8 months of trying. So I thought it was implantation bleeding coz I had that with my last positive. Just the not knowing what it is, is hard. ??? for us all.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 15, 2011, 11:57:26 am
Lisa I hope so much you get your BFP on Monday!you are being so strong about it!!
 I'm almost certain AF is coming tomorrow for me :-(
c I have never had any type of blessing or anything that would indicate implantation, nothing at all in the 10months of ttc. Not sure I'd that makes it harder or easier. Idle me, I don't even KNOW I I can get pregnant or not.. Maybe all this is just a waste of time :-(  it would be so much easier of this was you second child, then you at least know you can fall pregnant.
Anyway, Lisa I really hope you get good news, and good luck to everyone with All our BD over the next few weeks :-)

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 15, 2011, 12:14:38 pm
That's exactly how I feel Lilly. What if all this is just wasting time when we could have sourced the problem earlier when we first started trying. Maybe if we had then we would be Pregnant by now. I've only ever been pregnant once and it was 4 weeks after stopping the pill. So since then I've had  8 failed cycles. It doesn't make sense this many months of nothing. How could I be so lucky the first month of trying. I wish I'd gone to the dr a year ago and told him I had been trying a year. He would never know I hadn't. Im scared about the lap but i also can't wait to see what he finds.  5 weeks until I have it done.

So I should ovulate by 10/22, but with my period still being a little out of whack after the pill who knows!!

I was just wondering how you ladies and your partners deal with stress unrelated to TTC? my BF is under a lot of stress because of work, he's taking stress leave right now and his doc gave him antidepressants because even thinking about work gives him little panic attacks. He really hasnt been himself so we haent been BDing as much as I'd like. I understand but I'm impatient lol I want to be seriously trying now! Lol

Hi ladies, caught up on all posts since last on, you have made me feel less alone in the journey to become pregnant. I just don't understand why it is so easy for some people (or everyone I know in my case) to have babies yet my DH & I just never seem to get BFP's. I think I'll make an appt at docs so I can find out more about my chances of conceiving as i'm not sure if only having one tube & adenomyosis is causing us the problems?
Lisa really keeping fingers crossed for you, you seem a very strong lady like so many others on the forum which I really admire.
Update for me is just finished a strange period as was late, really dark and hugely painful, maybe it was punishment for being excited cos I was so late & really thought I was pregnant

Hi Saadia, was it the post about opk's? If so Lisa did answer the question hun. As you ovulate after you have you're period, testing during a period would be a waste of the test strips. Whilst I've not used them I think this is accurate. Try not to be mad at people's responses hun, nobody on here are experts and we are all just there to answer what we can, when we can x

So I thought I would update, first I want to wish everyone waiting to test or waiting for results some goodluck.

So as some of you may remember last month I was in pain with a cyst on my right ovary causing lots of pain, on Tuesday night of this week I ended up back in hospital with pain on both sides (I thought I was going to die, it was so bad) I was rushed into emergency and given EVERY oral pain killer imaginable and nothing worked so doc put in an IV and then they loaded me up on the hard stuff and admitted me back into the ward. Within 5 hours of being in the ward I was taken to surgery for a laparoscopy. It was crazy everything happened so fast and I was so emotional I couldn't stop crying. Lucky my DH was there for everything (he's truly amazing). So now I'm recovering from the surgery and have been told to stop the cysts from coming back I should start taking the pill. So I'm out of the game for a few months and then we will see what happens.

I will still check in and read the updates, but I wish you all the happiness you deserve. Stay strong the positives will come soon

I'm sorry Saadia, I thought I did answer your question?
 Please don't get angry xxx

It's definitely AF? here. I got home last night & got some pretty full on cramps & today I feel terrible. It's really heavy & bright red. Have the worst headache to go with it?

Ahhh so I decided to wait till Thursday coming to test again! But the cramps I'm getting when I go to bed are ridiculous seriously makes me think af is coming and then boom their gone again like I was imagining it... Nausea has stepped up a notch aswel anyone got any tips on how to calm it apart from looking like a mad woman sniffing a disinfectant bottle lol! Baby dust to everyone xx

Hi Becca, fingers crossed for you!
Hoping it's pregnancy signs that you are getting xx

I've heard ginger helps with nausea. A lady I used to work with had actual ginger in her pocket that she used to nibble on it while pregnant. I'm not sure if I like the sound of that though. Maybe try ginger biscuits or ginger bread?

Glad to see I was not the only one having issues with this app.? I haven't been on in awhile. I'm currently on CD30 with no signs or symptoms of AF or a BFP. I haven't had a regular cycle yet since coming off BC in May.  Honestly not positive I even ?. ? so frustrating.

Oh Lisa I'm so sorry.at least you have a day 1 again rather than the annoying end of a cycle. I'm day 3 today ??. But some exciting news,it's off the topic sorry but I thought I'd share... I met Gok today and got a photo with him and he singed a piece of paper for me ???yay ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 16, 2011, 06:48:43 am
Thanks C? To be honest I'm ok with it. I bought some elevit today & will start taking that & I'm going to buy an ovulation testing kit this week to? I'm hoping even though my cycle was 36 days I still stand a chance at conceiving. I'm not sure how long this period will go for but hopefully next months is on time and back to my usual 28 day cycle.

Thanks Nikki?
I think being my first month I was expecting a negative. I do know that as time goes on & the more negatives that I get, it'll be a whole different story? I'm just really pleased that I got my period earlier then what some women get  after coming off the CP? Hopefully I become regular sooner to. This month was a 36 day cycle. Once this period ends I want to find out my expectant ovulation day & test & BD? lots!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 16, 2011, 08:28:03 am
I need some help please?

So I went off the CP?last month & the day after I got my AF?. 
My cycle was 33 days (thought it was 36, but miscalculated) & currently have AF?

How do I work out when I will ? when I am not regular yet? 
Do I base it on last months 33 day cycle?

It's very confusing to me?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 16, 2011, 08:47:07 am
That's a hard one Lisa. I would just start testing for ovulation on day 10 that way you won't miss it. Some people have regular periods straight after stopping the pill. Some have irregular. It's all up to your body. When I went off the pill my dr told me I might not even get a period for 3 months which is normal. However I did get it in 28 days. So it's hard to say. Just keep testing that way you ll know. Otherwise maybe go to the gp and ask for them to do bloods to check you are ovulating. Just tell them you have been trying a few months. And Gok, haha he's a British fashion adviser. He does that show on foxtel  'how to look hood naked'. He's as gay and open about it as they come.  He is hilarious live and im a huge fan haha

Good luck becca, I hope you get your BFP, so at least one of us does this month!!
C- Ooh how exciting about Gok! What an awesome distraction!
Lisa: are you wanting to use OPK's or wait?? I'd you are going to use them I would maybe start testing on day 10 or 11, and go from there. If your normal cycle is 28 days your AF 'should' come 14 days after ovulation.
If not you could always check your mucous, or just wait and see when AF comes and hopefully it will be 28 days.
Goodluck :-)

lisa - I annoyingly had a normal 28 day cycle after coming off the pill then a 34 so started using opk's as I was sure I missed ?! I started on day 10 and had my positive day 16.. Only  managed ? once though due to work etc so am super determined to do more this month!
Still no AF - just hurry up! So frustrating when you know it's coming but just takes it's time! In my next life I'm coming back as a man!!!! ????????????

Post by: C on October 16, 2011, 10:12:40 am
To all the girls out there who are late for af did you test for ovulation?? Coz once you know you definatly ovulated you should have a 14 day luteal phase. Give or take a day or so  Maybe you guys ovulated later than you thought? The first half of a cycle can vary but the second or luteal will always be around 14 days. Hope this helps. I didn't realise this at the very start of my journey ??all
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Diva81 on October 16, 2011, 10:27:52 am
C - that's interesting I didn't know that! well I had a positive opk on the 16th s should of ovulated within 48 hours of that so 14 days of the popk was yesterday so i'm guessing af should be here today or 2mrw at the latest? Am I right? X
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: MadameDom on October 16, 2011, 10:29:28 am
So I'm now 2 days late and 2 BFN 's but I think the first may have been too early so give it another couple of days and test again otherwise I'll have to go and see my doc for a blood test if nothing shows up
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 16, 2011, 10:40:41 am
Yep diva that sounds right. If you have a rough idea of your ovulation then yeah add 14 days. When you got your pos opk did you continue testing until the second line got faint? That's what I do so I know when my LH i coming down so I have a better idea of exactly when I ovulated.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 16, 2011, 10:44:33 am
Hang on diva I read your post wrong. Today is the 16 th? Do you mean you got a positive opk today? If so then add 14 days. But if you ovulated 14 days ago then af will be due
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Diva81 on October 16, 2011, 10:56:24 am
C - sorry I've actually managed to confuse myself! Lol! Right af was september 16th had popk on the 1st october (day16) so if I ovulated within 48hrs of that af should def be here today or 2mrw! I think I've got that right. I used the clearblue smiley face ones and they tell u not to bother testing again so I didn't but I see what your saying about continuing to test at least you can pinpoint the exact day! X

Wow ladies this helps so much all of Us ache for that BFP. I lost it early this week from ?  years of trying ttc. Big hugs too you all. We had ? today the first of the wet season how nice it was ? after 2 weeks of Heat. My DS & DH have made me smile so many times over the weekend I am blessed so much to have them both. But it was logging in tonight that I noticed that ? AF ? is 3 days late don't know how I feel. I don't have any signs that she is coming. But I know on Friday 21st oct DH & I ? celebrate 16 years so if I get a BFP it will be On Friday night that I tell my best friend my sole mate and the love of my life. Everything  is crossed at my end and ? dust to you all. It's so nice to know an amazing bunch of girls.

Post by: Nikki85 on October 16, 2011, 02:10:32 pm
Lisa- I started using opk's on the cd11 and didnt get a positive until cd21... So if what c says is correct that means I won't get AF until 26th of Oct which would make this cycle 35-36 days... Which is funny cos according to this app, apparently I'm due for AF in 3 days, lol. Anyways Lisa I would start on day 10 and just do them til you get a positive :)
C- I used clear blue and I tested in the morning n got pos and the next day I got a neg.. Is it normal to not get  2 in a row...
Linzie- maybe go to ur doc?
GL to all those waiting for AF and to those who are starting their monthly journey again!!! Xoxo

I had a similar situation this month... AF was due Friday 10/14 but I got it on Monday 10/10 and it was very dark brown for two days and then it got a little lighter brown with a little red. But by the evening of day three it was back to brown and by Thursday it was a light brown and it stopped! So it is confusing and frustrating! I took a hpt and it Was a BFN! 'm going to wait till Thursday to retest! Good luck ??? ladies and loads of ??

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 16, 2011, 07:11:53 pm
Yes diva your right. Your af due date is around today.
Nikki , so if you got a pos on CD21 then add 14 days to your cycle and that should be your next af due date. This app will calculate it but it's normally wrong because ovulation can happen earlier in some cycles and later in others. If you use this theory then your cycle lengths will change each month. So whenever you discover your ovulation no matter what cycle day it is then you will be due for af in approximate 14 days. Your luteal phase should be 12 -16 long to achieve a pregnancy. It doesn't matter if you don't ovulate on the typical day 14.
Hope all this helps. I didn't think to mention this earlier.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 16, 2011, 07:19:11 pm
Yeah Nikki it is normal to get only a day of positive opk or 2 days in a row. It just means you caught your LH surge very early. It's easier to find it going up then coming back down with the tests that shows 2 lines. But then it can be confusing to as to what you call a positive. The smiley face ones only show a smile when you get that LH surge where as the others show it fainly b4 and after. As long as you have intercourse around the time you get a positive it s fine. Sperm can live for a few days but ideally we all should be having intetcourse through out the whole cycle not just around ovulation.

Thanks C that's very useful information!! Bummer that I don't have a normal cycle this month tho, lol. Yeah me and my DF have been ?ing every second day for the past month or so and ?  on the day I got positive opk... I was hoping we would catch it that way but I don't think we did.

Heating pads are my best friends for cramps. I alternate between my lower belly and my lower back.

So I'm currently on CD13 (my cycles are pretty long, 35ish days) my O date shoukd be around the end of the weeked and on the weekend I had some light spotting. Me and BF BD'd Fri Sat and Sun (I couldnt help myself lol) and Sun in the shower while washing I noticed some brown discharge, the after we BD'd when I wiped it was pink and then this morning I had some more brown discharge.

My funny brown spotting turned into proper af yesterday, I'm another who has been suffering ended up taking day off work today as I've been so poorly with it hate this time of month ? think my cycle could be bit all over! I've got some opks for this next try but no idea what I'm doing with them I've been reading on here and Internet to try and learn what I'm doing! Anyone have any helpful hints that haven't been discussed I'd love to hear them! ? just wish we could all get that big bfp we all want it gets so hard when af comes ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 17, 2011, 09:45:36 pm
Phaedra: so your spotting after AF and before ovulation? Maybe it's just left over from AF, or trauma from BD 3 days in a row!
Newbie and Lisa: sorry AF is so painful for you this month :-(
Newbie: how ling is you cycle? You start testing depending on how long you cycle is. Eg. I am usually a very regular 28 days so I start a day or two before i'm due to O just to confirm. Normally you wold prolly start around day 10 or 11. And it's always best to test between 11 and 3pm- not in the morning, though my first test is on a weekday so I don't test til almost 6pm and that works ok too.

Goodluck everyone!!

Wanting#1 - congrats on your positive!! Mine + was on the 12th n apparently you have to wait around two weeks after that for AF to come (look in this post for stuff C has written in last page I think) So for me that's next week but I'm CD28 is tomorrow, lol... Confusing I know!!

Mine too Nikki! I'm confused as still no AF and i am now 16 or 17 days past my positive opk. Which after C's advice about the luteal phase being 14days makes me wonder if I am actually ovulating correctly?! Anybody else experienced this? I know it's coming,def not preg!  just wish I knew my body was doing what's it's meant too! So frustrated! X

Lisa- I would probably start earlier then when I'm meant to ? :) so 28th sounds good to me ?
 Just to make sure u don't miss it...
Diva- I know mine isn't coming yet, I just have spurts of pains n cramps...
I got a + opk on the 12th so I'm not near the 14 day mark but it'll be interesting to see when it does come :) I agree with it all being frustrating.!!! I really hope that your body sorts itself out soon whether it being AF coming or you getting ur BFP!

Hypothetical question; if sumone was early preg n they BD'd could that do any damage?
On another note after BDing there was a Bit of pink and sum sharp jab pains down there... :/ so I don't know if AF? is comin or what...?!? Time will tell I guess...
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Phaedra on October 18, 2011, 05:41:49 pm
Nikki: I dont know for sure but I dont see how BDing could affect early prgnancy, unless it's something pretty hardcore lol are you close to your AF date?

Phaedra- haha yeah i don't know either just thought I'd see what other ppl thought. Next week is my due date (going by c's advice and counting 14 days from pos ?) according to this app tho is says I'm due on 22nd... So I'm not really sure when to expect it...
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 19, 2011, 12:38:48 am
This app isn't accurate, it says I'm ovulating mid November. I went onto 3 ovulation calculators & they said between the 1st and 3rd November

So I'm 2 days late and took a dollar store test last night and it was negative! Not really and symptoms other than sore boobs which could be period but I was really hoping thisonth would be the month or at least be regular! Here we go again! Pray for my happy ending one day
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on October 19, 2011, 02:50:33 am
You could still be pg... Maybe it was just to early to tell...?? If you havent got AF in another week I'd retest or go see your doctor for a test :)

September I was 10 days late and I turned up bfn, doctor sent me for blood last month to see when/if I ovulate but being puts my trying off for a month as I don't have signs of ovulation and have yet to get a positive on a ovulation kit but here's to the future and being positive!

Hi everyone. I have nothing to update about. I'm CD 6 today. I'm in
Such a low right now. The last 2 days I've been feeling so down. My best friend who is 25 weeks doesn't understand all this. She keeps telling me not to stress and tells me everytime she knows of a pregnant person. She isn't doing this deliberately. It's just that she doesn't get I don't want to hear it. Ive left my notifications off today coz I just can't bare to hear it anymore. And I'm trying to avoid her. It's bad I know but I just don't want it in my face anymore. She keeps complaining about her weight gain, drs fees, nausea and that she's tired. I know we'd all kill for all these 'problems' 
I feel like such a bad friend but I can't help but be jealous. I'm scared to death of infertility

Hi ladies im new here, have been reading posts for a while now though and decided to join today. I am ttc with dh since july now and I know it might not sound too long but i have become so impatient as everyone around me is pregnant im the only one who isn't. I feel so low especially this month as i was 7days late and started to get my hopes up so high but then ugly af showed up.was gutted. Just need a listening ear as even though dh is supportive, men just don't understand.im also scared to death of infertility.

Hi F-Mo?

Yup sounds all to familiar. I've only just gone off the pill myself & had my first cycle so I'm not completely stressing out just yet but I work in retail and see babies all the time and everyone seems pregnant!!
Soon enough it will do my head in?
I even went to an audition today for Deal Or No Deal (game show) and there was pregnant ladies eveywhere!

MissingMyAngel I havent seen u on here for awhile hope all is well?  how is every1 else feelin leading up to AF??
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on October 19, 2011, 12:49:51 pm
C & F-Mo- I hope that these sad feelings pass quickly for you both!  Don't feel bad for not waiting to hear people's stories of them being preg... To react the way you are (the way I would) is nothing to feel guilty/bad about... it just proves your human! N its so hard to explain to Ppl how we feel when they've never (including BFs, DHs, DFs & DPs) experienced it... But that's what we are here for. Dont give up, you time will come for you to have a beautiful baby!!
Lisa- get out.. Deal or no deal.. Awesome If u get through!!! 
Pricenssky- I hope we have both BDd at the right too!! I've had crampiness all today too.. Like AF was coming but it hasn't... Bah!! But it comes and goes... ATM ribs hurt (front & back) is uncomfortable to sit,stand or lie... ? Sigh.. Hope you all gave a good night.. Or day depending on where you are :) xo

Hi everyone. So ive just come back from the docs, and all I wanna do is cry. He said I have borderline pcos and my hormones are abit out of wack. So he said they won't do anything til my df gets tested and he said he won't. The doc didn't even suggest clomid or anything first just straight into ivf if my partner gets tested. What should I do? Should I get a 2nd opinion or go see a naturopath? Any opions would be great. Thank you.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 20, 2011, 04:31:32 am
Hi everyone. Wishing n hoping I would definatly get a second opinion if I were you. What tests have they run on you? I'm not saying it's good to jump straight into surgery but I think a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy is the best way to go. That way they check the flow of tubes and can see the inside and outside of your uterus and also your ovaries. I work in gynae and ivf and majority of our patients have a diagnostic lap to see any problems. I'm terrified of the surgery but I'm having it done in 5 weeks. It will put my mind at ease about all this.

Thank u C. I've decided to go get a 2nd opinion from a women's health clinc at a private hospital. I go for a 45min consultation on Tuesday. He ony did a blood test and external ultrasound. Didn't check my weight or anything like that. So I'll wait til I go see this other doctor. I'm only 27 so I think there r other things to try before talking about ivf. I'll let u know what they say. :) I'm feeling a bit better than I did earlier. Thank you.

Hi ladies?

W/back MissingMyAngel?
We've all been locked out of the forum at some stage in the last week, frustrating! 

Satsil- You have a good a chance as any? ? & ????? baby dust to you

I'm not sure about doing a ? test now. My friend says she did them for ages & never fell pregnant & in the end went & saw he doctor who did tests & said the ? test was incorrect. It was saying she was ? & she wasn't. It turned out she was ovulating right after her AF? & the ovulation test was saying later then that. 

I don't know what to do?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 20, 2011, 07:41:17 am
Hey Lisa , Never! Compare yourself to your girlfriends. If you start to do this you will diagnose yurself with every fertility condition under the sun. We are all so different and no one will ever have the same situation as you. Please don't drive yourself insane over your friends situations. It will just upset you even more. Please don't be upset at my post As I said earlier I work in ivf and every one of our patients has been through a very different journey to the next patient lying beside them.
Wishing n hoping- I'm glad your getting a Second opinion. Your right your young and ivf shouldn't be the first option for you. The dr needs to look into it more closely. Pathology and abdominal ultrasound does not diganose infertility and hense the need to start ivf. Ivf is too easily thrown at a vulnerable patient

So, I'm 11 days late, no sign of AF at all. Done 4/5 tests, last one was Sunday, all BFN's! I really don't know what to do, I went to my doc last month as I was late, I can't bug him again! This is so frustrating!! What is wrong with me?? ?

??Lisa. I'm so happy you agree. It's hard not to compare but you just can't do it. Really none of us shouldn't be worried about this until we reach 12 months of trying. My 12 months is up tomorrow ?( although I had a mc which took 2 1/2 months to get af) so I guess I'm only up to 8 months now.
The stats say that for each cycle a couple only has 25% chance of conception. Still doesn't make it any easier

Post by: C on October 20, 2011, 09:39:05 am
It is Lisa. Honestly it's so bloody hard. The last 2 days I was really upset and down. Today I'm a lot better. What I find hard is the not knowing why it's not happening and the fact that everyone around me is pregnant or has a new born. But what can we do? Just keep trying and turn off notifications when friends talk about pregnant ppl and a big one is stay off Facebook! Every second post is a birth or photo or announcement of pregnancy. One day I'm sure all this will be over for us all. It's just the time in getting to that point which is distressing.

Hey I've tried searching it on the web for u but havent found anything that suggests this could cause an ectopic pregnancy. It is mainly due to damage or blockage of the Fallopian tube. If ur really worried, go and speak to your doctor. Take care.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 21, 2011, 07:30:36 am
Princess- absolutely not! It's unfortunately just bad luck and not fair. At work after we do an embryo transfer the doctors always say resume back to normal activities with the exception of raising the bodies core temperature, for example going into a sauna or spa. Nothing can impact on implantation. If it's a good one it'll stick regardless of what you do. Hope this helps.

Hi girls?

Thought I'd get my results from the blood test, it was a negative which I knew it would be.
I also purchased a ? test today. My doctor didn't recommend it as I am irregular & it can take 2-3 months to regulate & it can stress you out & hubby & I should just enjoy it but I wanted a little help.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 21, 2011, 08:39:01 am
Oh Lisa so sorry. This is your second month off the pill yeah? When I first saw my dr about starting to try he said that it can take 3 months to even get a period after stopping the pill so it's obviously normal to not be regular just yet. Have you tried agnus castas tablets? It's a herb that helps to regulate menstrual cycles. Lots of ppl I know that tried it and had hood results. I do have a really regular cycle hut for me this stuff has shortened the length of my periods and my luteal phase is slways 13-14 days since being on it. It could be a load of crap but hey I'll try anything ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 21, 2011, 09:05:55 am
Yep C, second month off the pill?
The only thing I'm taking at the moment is ellevit. I don't want to stress myself out with ? so I will give the test a go & see what happens but my doctor was right, he said enjoy the time together & don't let sex become a chore. He said because it's early times to just let nature take it's course & only start to worry if it becomes 6-12 months & no bubba.

Welcome PuppyDoll?

What you are saying is all to familiar! I didn't know when I will ? either as I am newly off the CP?. I put my dates in to a calculator on a site & it said I could ovulate between 1st & 3rd November yet my doctor told me the 4th November. I purchased a ? kit to see if that helps.

I'm going to use the OPK on the 28th or 29th. Hubby's support has been great? I explained the ? facts to him yesterday & he was suggesting days to start testing for ?. The OPK that I purchased was recommended by a friends sister who fell pregnant using it. Might not happen for me but I'll give it a shot?

@ Diva81 Hi Diva we both are sailing on the same boat ,I got my smiley on my Opk on oct3rd and bd on oct4th and today its 18days past i got my smiley on my opk and hpt's negative.i wish goodluck for both of us.

Yep, OPK's aren't always accurate. My doctor warned me that they can stress you out. My friend was using them and it gave her the wrong ovulation date.

Hi everyone. I've got nothing new to tell. I'm CD 9. Waiting for ovulation between day 13 and 17. I've told my BFF and close friends I'm noy trying until after the lap which is in a month. That way no one will ask or expect me to tell them what's going on. Good luck everyone. Hope the girls with late af get it soon so you can all start again

C- I really wish you all the ? in the world! 
I really do ? that you get a BFP soon. You deserve it so much like many of the girls in this forum!

I read alot of the stories on here & I cannot sympathize enough. You are all such strong women! ?

This is only my first month TTC & at the moment I can't really stress about anything because I do know about all the little hiccups the CP? can cause, etc. I can guarantee though as time passes & if nothing happens I do hope that I can stay strong like you ladies??
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 22, 2011, 07:28:22 am
Thank you so much Lisa. I'm praying for all of us here and for my special patients at work. You would be surprised at how many of us have fertility issues. I just can't beleive how many patients I see.
Well as I said earlier I'm CD 9 but I've just discovered EWCM ???
I'm so excited! I seem to be ovulating earlier than I previously did. Maybe my body is still revcovering after the MC. I think I'll start OPK tonight.  I won't expect to get a pos for a few nights though. Yay ????

Same newbie. And I did. The first month trying.then it kicked me in the face for having the perfect outcome.

I hope you do ? asap C ? 

I'm going to start testing on the 29th I think or maybe even the 30th. TMI but i'ill be keeping an eye on my undies to! I know exactly what to look for because I have had it before but I never knew it was anything to do with ?. Told ya I was clueless lol?

Stay positive Diva? I know AF? is a pain in the a** but the sooner it's finished the sooner you can BD? & try again! Hubby is great, makes me feel so much better to know he is there. 

I found today my cluckiness at it's worst. Hubby's brother & sister have families & they gave us a cot they no longer needed. It's absolutely gorgeous! I just stood there in awe, hoping that soon enough I can use it.

Haha Lisa. Your undies ?? it's such a good way of discovering your getting ready to ovulate.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 22, 2011, 09:44:33 am
Most definitely C?
Put aside the ? tests, I think taking note of how your body works is the best way to go. Even when I was on the pill I still got the cervial mucus & always wondered what it was.

But what does this mean for my cycle I'm so confused now am I out for this month already without even starting? Hope someone can help ? many thanks in advance

Post by: Phaedra on October 22, 2011, 01:24:07 pm
Hi Newbie! I think it's pretty normal, everyone is different but it can take anywhere from 3-6 months (sometimes longer) for your body to regulate itself again after coming off the pill. I came off the pill in may and my cycles were 25, 39, 39, 35. And they've come back with a vengeance!!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Phaedra on October 22, 2011, 05:25:33 pm
Surprisingly I think the app got my ? date pretty close. It says today and now I've got wicked killer cramps and noticed EWCM today. So my question is does this show up just at ovulation or a day before or what?

Phaedra, I think it comes when you are close to ovulation, I'm still learning about it to be honest but it will be my sure way of knowing whats going on down there now that I know what to look for?

Satsil, bummer? There is always next month! ? & ? ?????

Well 2 more days till AF is due :/ not sure whether I'm excited or scared. Spent the last 2 weeks trying to not think about it and havent done to bad. Anyone have any tricks on staying busy LOL
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 23, 2011, 01:03:14 am
PuppyDoll, sounds like you are very close to ?, have you tested with a OPK??  

Wanting #1, my job always keeps me busy, well for 10 hours anyway. I don't think there is a real way to keep your mind off it as it's something you want so badly?

I have nothing major to report. Have noticed my undies have been a little wet, but still waiting on the stretchy stuff, you must think I'm weird haha?

I hope MissingMyAngel is ok, haven't seen her on here for a while??

It was a weird one being that it was dark brown the whole 4 days and only lighting up a bit on day 3 and tapering off on day 4!! Well it appears to be back!!! Yesterday afternoon the dark brown with some pink started and is still here!!! am I having another period???? I am so frustrated and loosing hope!!

Post by: Newbie29 on October 23, 2011, 07:18:28 pm
A few weeks ago I noticed someone had posted saying she used the pill to get pregnant, she'd take it for a week then stop it and take it again if she started bleeding. She said it forced ? and you could ? more than once in a month giving you more chance to get your bfp. What do you ladies think of this? To me it sounds dangerous to play with your body like this but maybe it's worth a try? Want other people's opinions on it if anyone has any? ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Mjfaheymomma on October 23, 2011, 08:07:20 pm
Funny I read that too and asked my doctor last week and he said is brilliant! He said bc is just a pill that helps regulate all natural hormones that your body produces anyway. He also said that the day you stop taking the pill it us out of your system So that's how people have a Woopie when they skip a pill. So he said 14 days before the period pill skip 2 pills and baby dance as much as you can! I don't ovulate because I'm  a bigger girl so were trying this when I'm working on my weight!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 24, 2011, 01:51:30 am
?Veniana, I know it's frustrating honey but unfortunately you can  get AF? a few times in a month until your body regulates. My doctor has warned me about it & it was something I didn't want o hear!! Try not to stress out, easier said then done but it doesn't help when trying to conceive xx

?Wanting #1, any sign of AF? yet? FX it doesn't come!! 

?Newbie, funny you should mention that! I thought it makes sense, you always hear about women falling pregnant on the pill. I can't see it being good for you though, but then again I have no idea?! I personally wouldn't do it, I wouldn't want to risk screwing around with my body. 

Well I've been getting light cramping today & I'm thinking it might been a sign of ovulation, it comes & goes. Hopefully it's not AF coming to soon.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 24, 2011, 02:09:44 am

Hi ladies :) You all sound great!!! I have been reading your posts for the last few weeks I though I'd join your thread. me and my partner have been TTC for about 15 months now had been and had all fertility tests done but nothing bad come up :(  and my partner has 2 kids to another woman just wondering why it's not happening for us my stupid AF is due on 5th Nov  I wish you all the best of luck baby dust to all xx

Hi Mumma ?
Geez, 15 months, you poor thing, it must be so devastating?
I have my FX that AF? doesn't come for you xx

I have had some cramping going on today, very light but I'm just wondering if I am going to ? early. I have had a discharge, it isn't like egg white, just a bit sticky in-between the fingers (so sorry for tmi). I did a OPK & it was negative. I'm supposed to ? between the 1st & 4th of November, but being I'm just off the CP?, I don't know how long this cycle will go for so I think hubby & I just need to BD? every second day....what a shame ? lol

Hi ladies, haven't written for a couple days... Nothing new to report for me... On CD33 at the moment but have not long been off bc so I'm not surprised... I am 12dpo... Been a bit wet downstairs but i dont think its CM.. so just waiting for dreaded AF? to arrive... What's the bet it'll come just before I go on holidays or while I'm on the plane! Lol!! Annoying! Lisa- that's what we did (and will continue to do) the past month every 2nd or 3rd night ? DF ?s it!! Lol good luck to all you lovely ladies TTC and FX for those about to test!!! Xx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 24, 2011, 09:20:29 am
Something is definitely going on down there, I'm getting slight cramping?
I went & saw my folks today, my mum, bless her? had a pregnancy book that she wanted me to have. Lots of helpful info in it? Also explains ?. It is an older book but it does say ? isn't like clock work & don't assume you will ? the same time every time. I think I'll cover all bases & just BD? 3 days a week & it covers all bases.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??

Goodluck to you Lisa!! Hope this is ur month n not AF playing tricks on you again!!! Does your mum know ur TTC? We havent told anyone so I only got u ladies to talk to about it!! ?

Hey Nikki?
Where are you going? I'm so jealous! I hope you have a great trip & get lots of BD? in.

Yep that's what hubby & I are gonna do, BD? every 2nd or 3rd day. It gets to stressful otherwise & ? is unpredictable. Least I know we cover all bases?

Yeah my close workmates & family know that we are trying. I won't be telling anyone if I do conceive though, not until I'm 12 weeks. I'll be telling you girls though, you are my rock!

Hey, I'm going good, aside from waiting for AF to come.. Bah!! Lol
It's not a very exciting holiday, back to Canberra (glad I dodge the Queen tho and the crowds she brings, lol!!) to see family that we left when we moved! Lol n I have a feeling AF will come whilst I'm away so there will be no BDing for us! Lol
Exactly! That's What I reckon n with any luck the lil soldiers survive long enough to grab that egg when the time comes!! Lol
That's fair enough, we are going to wait til we are pg to tell (altho I might cave one day n tell my sister) as they are all the types to continually ask "hows it going??" lol don't want all that Extra pressure! That's why I'm so grateful for you all!! Lol
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 24, 2011, 09:45:36 am
lol @ lil soldiers?

My workmates don't ask, so it's good lol
My parents don't really ask either, but I asked mum today how long it took to conceive. She went off the pill in Sep (back in 1982) & fell pregnant with me in the December. I'm
hoping I take after her she is incredibly fertile.

Hi Lisa thanks so much it's really nice to feel welcome :) oh gosh I really really hope everything gets better for you and you get your cycle on track truck loads of Baby Dust you!! X I never before noticed changes in my CM till now it kinda makes me wonder if I was BDing at the right time at all lol. Do any of you fab ladies know if u do get pregnant (between O and AF) does your CM stay as it normally would i'm a little confused well I'm just guessing I'm not pg :( if we aren't preg by Christmas we are going to a fertility specialist I would like to try clomid I heard some good and bad things about it does anyone have any other suggestions thanks so much xx baby dust to all xx hope you all get your BFP's you so desperately deserve :)

Hi girls!!!! I'm back. I couldn't get in for 3 days. How is everyone?? I've missed you all. I'm CD 12 today. I did an ovulation test last night and it had a very faint second line which is what happens to me the day before a positive. So I expect to ovulate tomorrow ? this is my final month before the lap then i have to wait until december ?. I'm so nervous about it. Ahh I keep walking past the theatre at work when they are doing a lap. I know exactly what I'm in for but I'm so scared of it. I work with the dr I've chosen to see. I'm scared of him seeing me exposed and espically scared of him seeing my face with out makeup ?. Good luck girls x

Lisa - thanks so much for asking :) nothing yet, tho it is due tomorrow. Everything feels as it normally does a day before AF shows, right down to the wetness (I know, TMI moment) so I'm not getting my hopes up too much. It does kinda suck knowing this month probably isnt my month. But I'll deff log on and update tomorrow!!

Welcome to the new people :)

C- welcome back! I had wondered where you had gotten to!! How awesome for you getting a slight positive for ?!! Goodluck to you, I really do hope this is your month Hun! Will you still need to go through with the lap If you do get pg?

Mommy2be- FX for you that AF doesn't show for you this month!! ?

little panda- it could have been implantation bleeding instead of AF, I would maybe test, or go see your doc if you normally bleed bucket loads ?good luck to you!! X

Wanting #1- I'm a bit the same as you, waiting For AF should be due around now....however it doesn't feel like it's coming but I do Get cramps on and off but they aren't really AF cramps- goodluck to you! Xo

I would like to ask all you ladies when I was about 14 my AF wouldn't stop and the doctor gave me these pills they stopped it just wondering whether that has anything to do with me not getting PG :( BABY DUST TO YOU ALL I'm praying for you all every night

Post by: Veniana on October 25, 2011, 02:15:20 am

Thanks Lisa83,

Thing is I was always regular! Every month AF comes she hasnt skipped A visit but twice in my life once when I was expecting my first ? (2008) and this past august (no clue why she skipped her visit) other than that every month like clock work! Thing that is killing me this month is that the bleeding is all dark brown with very light pink from day one!! This is a 1st for me!! I can't help but think something is wrong! I have never had a period for 4 days and then 12 days later it reapper for another 4 days!!


?Veniana, I know it's frustrating honey but unfortunately you can  get AF? a few times in a month until your body regulates. My doctor has warned me about it & it was something I didn't want o hear!! Try not to stress out, easier said then done but it doesn't help when trying to conceive xx

?Wanting #1, any sign of AF? yet? FX it doesn't come!!

Hi everyone. I just did an ovulation test. It wasn't positive but it had a darker second line than it did yesterday so I'm sure it's coming seeing as I've had EWCM a few days ago. I've got really obvious stitch type pain on my left side. If I ever get pain when I suspect I'm ovulating it's always from he left. You don't always alternate ovaries each month so maybe my left side has the dominant  follicles. I'll ask my dr about it next month ?.

Post by: Lisa83 on October 25, 2011, 08:57:03 am
Mumma?- Thank you so much, I have my FX that my cycle will sort itself out, it hasn't stopped me though, I still BD? every chance that I get lol. Are you taking any pre-pregnancy vitamins?

Mommy2Be?- I believe in signs, always have?

C?- I was wondering where you were with all your helpful advice! Glad that you are back xx Did you ? like you thought? 

Mio?- Welcome & goodluck? & lots of Baby Dust ???? for your journey ahead xx

Wanting #1?- I have everything crossed for you ?????

Nikki?- You crack me up lol? I just hope my hubbies "soldiers" man up lol

Veniana?- I have everything crossed for you honey xxx

Soo I had cramps today & also what looked like CM. It was clear and stretchy, like egg white. I did an OPK & it was negative. Luckily hubby & I BD? last night though just in case? Told him every second or third day he's booked in for lol

Hi Lisa! yeah I'm taking natures own vitamins and they are discusting they are giving me reflux and the fish oil is just gross lol but I'm waiting till these ones run out then I'm trying elevit my friend said she didn't have any trouble   with them. Also I'm going to the gynie  next month if this isn't our month hopeully he can put me strait onto clomid or something anyways xx all they best baby dust to all you beautiful ladies thanks you so much for all support it really makes a difference :')

Eww, reflux is the worst Mumma  ?
I'm taking Elevit, have been for a week & have had no reflux with them at all ? I was told they are the best to take. I'm really hoping that I conceive before Christmas? I think once my OPK's are finished (have 3 left) then that's it for me & letting nature take it's course. I'm worried that being so determined to make a baby is going to stress me out & take over my life & make me forget about the little things in life.

Oh Lisa hunny hope your ok yeah I was getting a bit stressed about it and my partner was getting the shits on and said can we talk about something other than CM and ovulating lol I think he was taking it like that's all I wanted from him lol men don't seem to be as open about this stuff like women are. I gave up trying to track everything just taking it all 1 day at a time and BDing as much as I can :D and I'm glad u are too I will definately get the elevit everyone I spoke to has said that they are great thanks so much for your advice xx baby dust to all <3

DF has no clue what my schedule is lol so I'm hoping when we do conceive that I can totally surprise him with it. I'm also hoping to conceive by christmas, it would be a wonderful gift to give everyone, a pic of a positive HPT!

You ladies are all so supportive and I am glad to hav you all with me on this journey! Baby dust to all of you :) :)

Still no AF! 16 days late, can you miss a whole month? My last period wasn't normal either! Had 2 or 3 days of brown and that was it! Have any of you experienced this before? I have done HPT but all BFN! Mind you not done one for a week! No symptoms just occasional heart burn ?

Hi everyone! I've been reading this thread for a few weeks and thinking how supportive you all are but had nothing to add...however last night DH and I decided that we would stop preventing and see where we end up! I was on depo for 8 years but had last one July 2010 and had a pretty regular cycle since Jan 2011 and after reading all the hints thinking I'm ovulating but can't be certain. We'll probably start actively ttc in the new year but for now I'm happy enjoying carefree BDing LOL
Sorry for such a long intro! Lots of baby dust to you all

Good evening ladies!!! I'm here and am behind you all 100% ? I just want you all my phone has been having trouble with the ap a lot lately and I'm hoping to have it fixed soon!!! I am keeping up the best I can and will update our TTC ? list tomorrow as time permits! I am not ignoring any of you wonderful ladies ? and hope you understand that! To the ladies having trouble getting answers... I normally try to reply to everyone in some way on every post, but with the ? phone trouble its been difficult to get on here ? i hope you all understand we all have questions, worries and fears, but sometimes it can be difficult to answer everything. Maybe you could try reposting if you don't get an answer with a polite?reminder to ladies that it is your second time posting. Lots of times the forum is just a bit more quiet because ladies are in all different ? zones or are with family etc. on the weekends... Also keep in mind not every tingling sensation or slightly abnormal cm observation will have an explanation. I'm not saying it doesn't mean something, but maybe just not explainable quite yet ? That being said, hopefully we all can come together and answers for each other ? The update on me is the ? AF ? is due tomorrow... I have resisted the urge to test and will not test unless I'm 3+ days late (Friday or Saturday) because I'm pinning my hopes on a ? TURKEY BABY and another reason to be thankful ? at Thanksgiving!!! I am determined and wish all of you lots of GL ??? and ? dust this month ????????? I look forward to catching up with y'all soon but until tomorrow... Goodnight ??

I had wrote more than that, app is playing up. Have had few symptoms, mostly jus usual when due AF tho. One thing that's been diff is a bubbly feeling in pit of stomach, think its jus gas tho! Gonna test again in few days this is so frustrating xx

Hi everyone. I just did an ovulation test. I'm sure it's positive ?. I dunno what the cramping was last night. I thought it was ovulation?? Unless I've caught my LH surge going up and now coming down. Who knows hey.
Way too into it. We only BD every second night so I guess that's all I can do. I'm so sick of all this waiting and testing. I saw my BFF today. She has a big belly.  Each day I swear she's bigger. So unfair

Just wondering anyone that has thought they have felt ovulation pain, what do you think it feels like? I'm pretty sure I could have ovulated last night because I had the left side pain. For me, it felt like a constant stitch that lasted about 4 hours. Dunno if it was but what else could it he if I had a faint second line on an ovulation test and I had EWCM 3 days before this pain. It has to be doesn't it?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on October 26, 2011, 11:01:06 am
Hey C - awesome that you got a + ? test!!! The night before my + ? I had... Crampy/stitch/tightness on more my right side n I thought nothing of it at the time as I got a - test that morning and i had only been off bc for a few weeks n had cramping since.. however I tested the next morning n it was + so I'm pretty sure that was it...
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 26, 2011, 11:36:42 am
Hmm Nikki that sounds the same as me. ? Ovulation pain but neg OPK then positive the next day. The only thing that doesn't make sense it that the positive should come first before the pain because the ovulation test is positive before you ovulate. I guess it could be the LH surge returning to normal and we just assume it's a positive. God I'll be glad when all this is over. No more guessing games

Yeah I know it was weird I assumed once I got the + ? test that had started late that arvo cos I was testing early mornings just after I got outta bed.... It was strange... As I said tho I've been getting all sorts of cramps aches n pains since being off the pill... Tonight included massive lower back n tummy cramping type pains... Bah!! I'm on cd35 (nearly 36) and I'm 14 (nearly 15) dpo... I reckon AF will show in the next couple of days.. ?

Well CD39 today, i think this is by far the longest cycle i have tracked, my boobs&nipples are still sore, past 2 to 3 days i had very mild cramps that made me belive af had arrived but nothing.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 26, 2011, 08:12:32 pm
I can't imagine how disstressing it is for you girls who have long cycles. I would give that agnus castas herb a go. It's supposed to regulate your cycle and balance out your hormones. Google it to see what others think but it does sound good for people with longer cycles. I'm on it and I find it makes my af a lot lighter and for only 4 days instead of 6. My cycles are always 26-29 though so it doesn't change my cycle length but definatly shortens the length of and I'm ovulating on day 12 or 13 instead of my normal 17. Dunno if it's just the way it is but hey I'll try anything. you can get it from chemist warehouse (in Australia ) for about $12 I think for 40 tablets but you take 3 a day so I always use 2 a month.

Hi ladies?
Been feeling very average the last couple of days. Had a sinus headache all day yesterday & then after I had eaten lunch I felt so nautious & horrible. Still have the headache today & feel like I could sleep all day. Was meant to be our BD? day last night but went to sleep at 7pm, hopefully tonight.

@ 1 day past due for AF. Not really feeling much of anything though!! I find it weird, normally I'd be feeling some cramps, or just an over all yucky feeling, but nothing!!

I'm on a tea break which I never have only because I feel light headed. I'm hoping I'm not coming down with a virus. Everyone has been sick lately. It's so selfish but I know if I get sick there is no baby dancing & no baby dancing will mean no chance this month. I missed last night cos I was sick & I'm hoping to BD tonight. I feel really funny today ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 27, 2011, 04:22:13 am
It's not selfish at all Lisa. I'd be the same!! Take panadol 4 hourly and heaps of water. No nurofen though!! 
Hope you feel better
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 27, 2011, 07:51:35 am
Thanks C? I took some pills & the headache is gone sort of, still feel a bit funny though. I don't know what it is?
According to an ? calculator, I'm supposed to ? on the ?st ?? but another one said between ?st & ?rd of ?? & doctor said ?th of ?? so hubby & I need to BD? every 2nd night but they all could be wrong & I could ? at a different time lol 
I think this ? thing is so unpredictable for me. 
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 27, 2011, 08:26:15 am
Yeah it's a hard one when to time intercourse for ovulation. I stress about it every month to which is really silly because doctors say every second day around ovulation is fine. The scientists at my work say that's the best way to conceive as well. Imagine if we weren't doing ovulation test we wouldn't know the exact day and I'm sure eventually would fall pregnant.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 27, 2011, 09:30:29 am
At least with every second day we can cover all bases! I guess if you do that and still get a  BFN then something must be wrong?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 27, 2011, 09:37:44 am
That's how it seems doesn't it but really it can take a normal fertile couple 12 months to conceive. Every cycle a couple only has a 25% chance of conceiving. We all shouldn't be worried until it's been 12 months but that's so long to keep trying for ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 27, 2011, 09:53:30 am
The thought of 12 months is daunting?
I really hope it doesn't take that long for us. I think a horrible factor for me
is that I'm no longer 65kgs like I used to be & have put on weight ?
Oh well, shouldn't worry about it just yet?
I got hubby's Birthday present today, I'm so proud of myself, was in and out of the shops! Was nice weather to!!

Arvo means afternoon, sorry I realized I said that in one of my posts.
C- can you not have Nurofen while TTC?
Lisa- I hope you feel better soon! No fun feeling lousy!!

Not much to report- still no AF... am officially on holidays, so not doubt it'll come while I'm here cos it seems to just know when u don't want it! Lol so I thinK that means I'm cd35-36 and 15-16dpo... Waiting sucks!! my back/rib aches/stitches have not ceased yet... Quite frustrating... and getting random short n sharp twinges in my belly every now n them... The joys of being a female hey?!? ?

You along with a few others have been good about answering and responding to people. I know it's a commitment, I'm sorry to ask ? I don't know... I'm looking for someone who is willing to do the research ? to help ladies with questions an help to be sure questions are acknowledged etc. I am not leaving forever and I will keep up with our original post as often as I can and check in, but for a short time I will be laying low... the reason for this is I very unexpectedly this morning... I got a BFP!!!! I'm trying not to get excited ? and am preparing for the worst ? with my history! I ? all you ladies and hope someone can step up for me until I'm in more of a safe place and know I have a viable pregnancy!

Hi C?- I think your comment hit the nail on the head about BD? every 2nd day & that you should eventually fall pregnant. Back in the day that's all our folks would have done. I think tracking ? will just lead to alot of stress. Hubby & I are just going for it every 2nd day & hopefully it'll happen?

Nikki- Hope you are enjoying your trip Hun? xx I miss you!!

How is everybody else doing? 

I have nothing major to report, because I have 4 different dates of "apparent" ?, I'm making sure hubby & I cover all the days just in case. If this cycle is the same as last month, then I still have a while until I'm due. Hoping that this month is it, but I'm not sure.

Nikki- no you shouldn't take nurofen. Because it's an anti inflammatory it can cause the developing follicles
(where our eggs are brewing) to collapse. So stay away from it!
Lisa- yeah every second day should be enough. Although if I had my way with my husband I'd try every night just for my own piece of mind. But the experts do say every other day is fine.
I wonder how Lilly is? She should be back next Wednesday I think. Hope she's doing lots of BD sessions.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 28, 2011, 09:30:10 am
I hope Lilly has big news?

I couldn't BD? every night. I'm up at 5:30am for work every morning & the nights we BD? I'm usually up late. I'd be exhausted & by the end of the week I'd be like a bug with my legs in the air lmao?
I've done a bit of research & it all says do every second day or close to it so the sperm have a chance to build up.
I'm quite happy to go with it for now ?

Dont think I'll get much chance to come on here, unless it's as late as it is now 2:30am-ish.. Damn jet lag!!! So it's day one into trip n inlaws are on our backs already- bah!! Will be a stressful time away n I'm sure there will be next to know BDing!! AF still hasnt come, will be a nasty unwanted surprise when it does- I know it'll come I just don't know when!

Mommy2be - I have heard of women experiecing numbness after a c section. I think it's a pretty common thing, after all a c section cuts through a lot of things. If it's not causing pain or discomfort I wouldn't worry, but you could check with your doctor just in case. Are you worried about it?

Nikki?- lol I didn't know any other way to put it but like a bug!! We BD? the other night & I laid there with my pelvis raised up, hubbies idea! Was very funny?

Mommy2Be?- Everyone is different, some get cramps when they ? & others don't, it's nothing to worry about. If you have concerns though, see your doctor & they can do a blood test & let you know of you are ?. C-sections are quite invasive & I know women who have had them and are all healed up & have been for years but still get discomfort from it. 

Blessedx1son?- Lol I have my moments? I hope peoples info & their own predicaments help you though, it's like my conceiving bible on here, so much info! 

I have had some on and off cramping & also like a tight feeling down there if that makes sense!? 
It comes & goes, not sure if it's ? coming or AF? coming early but i would like option 1?
I still have 18 days before AF? is meant to be due but it could be a shorter cycle this month, idk...
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Mommy2be on October 29, 2011, 04:26:54 am
Thanks Lisa.

Up date on me. AF is gone she left at about noon. Still have a nasty headeach.

Here is a question. Say a person was on a 6 week cycle then it changed. Would that person still ? at the same time she did on the 6 week cycle?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 29, 2011, 04:59:23 am
Mummy2be- Is it over the 6 weeks by alot? Generally with ovulation if you have a regular cycle it should come around the same time each month, but in saying that, anything from stress etc can make it come later or even earlier. Ovulation is quite unpredictable for some women. If it's over the six weeks by say a week then you could either ovulate the same time or later. If you track your cycle normally, perhaps try a OPK and count back more then 14 days so you don't miss it.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Mommy2be on October 29, 2011, 05:38:00 am
I am now 27-26 day. I was every 6 weeks. I have never tried OPKs before. With my son I just guessed and got lucky. R they easy to use?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 29, 2011, 06:14:15 am
Hi mummy2be, yeah OPK's are very easy to use? you can get all different types, I used one where you pee in a cup & then dip the test into it. I found it difficult to read. You can also purchase digital which are 100% easier to read compared to the ones which have all the different lines. Being that your cycle is shorter then I would suggest get one so you don't miss your ovulation.

Not really! My last was strange too! Only had 2 days of brown discharge. That was the 6/7th sept and nothing since! I think I might just do another test at least then I'll be sure! And can look at what might be the problem. Thanks @lisa83 x

Hubby has already started complaining about BD? every 2nd night. Thinks there's to much pressure etc. I feel like he's back peddeled from the time he suggested I go off the pill. Feel so flat, ended up going in the spare room to have a cry.

Lisa I know exactly how you feel. They just don't understand which is why I am so glad of got you ladies to talk to. I'm currently 2 days late and have done a hpt but got a bfn. Hubby was like don't stress maybe next month will b our month. So far it's been 7 months. Not much you can do if they don't meet you halfway. I just try not to think about it and hope we get the timing right.

Oh lisa - hugs to you girlie! I'm sure your hubby was just feeling a bit stressed or pressured? As understandinh as men are I don't think they truly get what TTC does to us! Hope everything is ok now?
Linziee - 20 days late must be so frustrating! Have u spoke to the docs?

Patiently Waiting?- 
I honestly just don't get it? He was all for it earlier in the week & we have only BD? twice. There's nothing I can do, not like I can do this on my own. 7 months would feel like years! I don't know how you put up with it? 

Diva?-
I'm not sure what he was feeling but considering it's only been a week, it's not very comforting considering TTC could be a long journey? He mentioned this app to & doesn't like that I record when we BD?, I think that's where he feels the pressure from. I record everything so I don't know why he's so concerned about it.

So I wa complaining about AF yuckiness in bed this morning and DF was like "oh you got it?" I told him healthy couples could take up to 1 yr to conceive, and that with my past Pap test issues and having bad cells burnt out, that it could take us longer. He was shocked and now understands why I wanted to start trying 6 months ago. I think he's wishing we had of now :p but for now, I'm sittin back, enjoying a couple beer, and will start opk's in a week or so!!!! Baby Dust to all of you!!!

Post by: C on October 29, 2011, 08:39:20 pm
My husband is the same he complains about the every second day thing. We ve been trying for 9 months since my mc and this month was the first month he called me and asked me to come home because I was ovulating. I annoy him each month by planning intercourse but this month I tried not to which worked in my favor. So he didn't feel pressured. As hard as it is, maybe just hold it in and don't mention it so much and don't tell him your putting details in the app. It's so different for men they seriously don't get it
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Patiently waiting on October 29, 2011, 09:58:12 pm
Lisa my hubby was the same but they really don't get the whole process they think that it's just a
matter of having sex and bam your pregnant. They don't get the timing thing so they don't see it as a big deal. I guess the most frustrating thing is they don't want to know the ins and outs of it ie: ovulation.
As you said you can't do it on your own. I just try to relax and try and let nature take it's course. It does get hard though. Hopefully it won't take you as long as it is taking me. GL!!!!

My husband and I fight a lot cause he doesn't want me to talk about it. Men do talk to their mates as my hubby told his friend he is really stressed 7 months and nothing yet.
No I don't menshion it as he knows it's BD every second night.
I've tried the ovulation kids and they didn't work. So im just praying. Going to see the specialist on friday. Baby bust to you all

Wanting#1- FX that you get you BFP soon! ? & ??????

C- I feel better knowing I'm not the only one? I haven't really planned it but I told him the ? calculating is to much pressure & just because you think you know your ? date doesn't  mean its correct, especially for me since I'm not regular yet. He knows I'm grumpy this morning, I can't help it. He suggested I go off the pill etc to start trying, he has to realize without sex, no baby. 

Patiently Waiting- What you are saying is exactly right! xx?

Glors- Its so difficult if they don't meet us half way. I really shouldn't be complaining as it's only been a month since I've been off the pill but I figure if it's like this now what will happen..

Thanks for your lovely advice ladies? I'm so glad I joined this forum otherwise I really wouldn't have anyone to vent to and talk to. I can't talk about this stuff to girlfriends as they will only judge. ??

I bet that all us girls who have been  trying for a while all have husbands who dont want sex everyday but the girls who wouldn't have fertility issues regardless of how much sex they have will have the husbands who pressure them into sex every day.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 30, 2011, 04:05:29 am
Very true C? I think my problem is that I have the high sex drive & hubby doesn't, never has. It's going to prove a problem with conceiving unless I am 100% certain when I will ovulate but unfortunately I'm not certain
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 30, 2011, 04:13:48 am
Yeah I agree Lisa but don't forget you wont always ovulate on the sane CD eah month. It will vary. And you may not feel ovulation each month. Have you ever noticed EWCM? maybe once you see that you could start doing oulation tests or just start having intercourse when you first see it.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 30, 2011, 04:27:23 am
Hi C, I noticed what looked like CWCM last week I think it was (I commented on here) & did a OPK & it was negative but we BD? anyway. I haven't had it since. According to ? calculator online, I should ? between the 1st & 3rd yet when I saw my doctor he said I should ? on the 4th. It confused the hell out of me. Today I am so moody and have a headache. I'm usually a bubbly happy person, not today? Feels like my hormones are going bonkers!! Thanks so much for letting me vent to you xxx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 30, 2011, 07:29:36 am
So I'm starting to wonder about the possibility that I might be pregnant..
I'm very moody lately & getting alot of headaches. I just went to the loo and when I wiped I noticed 2 small little dots of pink on the toilet paper. It's such a long shot but I guess I'll know soon enough...
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 30, 2011, 09:14:29 am
Hmmm Lisa. Strange about the pink. Maybe ovulation spotting ? Some girls get it. Did you do a pregnancy test today? I really hope you are. How awesome would that be!! That happened to me the first time I was P. I had what I thought was a period then told a girl at work and she suggested I do a test at work( we have them at work) and I did. And I was. But anyway maybe you should test. Did you have what you thought was a normal period 2 weeks ago?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 30, 2011, 09:25:06 am
Yeah C, had my period 2 weeks and 1 day ago..Been feeling very nautious alot lately and yesterday day at work while going down the stairs I got dizzy. I havent done a test because I thought it may be to early?

Hi ladies! Hope you are all having a good weekend!
Lisa I had similar symptoms just before I had my positive opk last month. I felt like my hormones where going nuts & I had spotting, within a day or two of that I had a got the + opk.
I'm in two minds whether to use the opk's again this month. We haven't been trying long and I'm not sure if I'm putting too much pressure on us. I think we generally need to have more sex! We were a bit rubbish last month!
I really hope Nov brings more BFP's for us all! X
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 30, 2011, 10:26:46 pm
Thanks Diva, I might wait & do an OPK tonight or tomorrow & see what I get. Been getting pressure in my abdomen also. Sounds really stupid but I've had this massive strong instinct that I'm pregnant but that sounds so silly. 
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 31, 2011, 12:42:46 am
I went to the toilet before & I had a discharge, it was something I've never had before. It was on my underwear & it was white, thick
& creamy?

Post by: Nikki85 on October 31, 2011, 02:29:15 am
Hey Lisa- re: hubby & pressure... I would suggest what c (I think) said... I havent actually told my partner about this app well not all about it he knows it's for tracking AF but that's it and he didn't know that I did the opk's either... I reckon he'd get funny if he knew so I didn't say... I've also mentioned to him that it's best to do every second night but I don't force it he thinks its great but out of us he has the bigger sex drive so suits him just fine.. Not saying you shouldnt tell him anything just try make him think That ur not worried about it etc....
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on October 31, 2011, 06:48:08 am
So apparently I should be ovulating around now according to calculators, I did a OPK & it was negative.

Diva81 you made me smile-you and hubby a bit rubbish last month. ? I know how you feel though when you look back on the month and realise the BDing was a little too sparse around the ? window but sometimes day-to-day stuff just gets in the way don't you find?
Linziee19 how are you? Are you still waiting for AF?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on October 31, 2011, 10:27:25 am
Hi everyone, back from Phuket - was awesome!! Congrats on the BFP's!!! Especially MMA, finally yay! I really hope it sticks!! 
C- can't be long til your lap now hey??
Lisa- yeah what everyone else said, I don't need to repeat it! Its SO HARD though, I really do feel for you. The headaches, nausea and mucous all sound like you are about to ovulate, do a test if you can between 11 and 3pm tomorrow. I get those exact symptoms a few days beige I ovulate.

I was due to ovulate on Saturday but didnt, I think cos initially I was anxious on holidays, being in a different place and all. I got an almost positive opk today, so prolly will ovulate tomorrow! After having headaches for the past few days and nausea yesterday and quite a lot of mucous today ( so all is not lost Lisa!!)

GL to those waiting for AF and happy BD to those waiting to ovulate!!!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Diva81 on October 31, 2011, 10:37:54 am
Beebees - it most definately does! When I had my positive opk last month we were away on a weekend break with friends & family and we literally didn't get 5 minutes to ourselves! Life & work def gets in the way no matter how determind you are! Going to kick off the 'every 2nd day' attempt at ? tonight so fingers crossed!
Lisa - agree with Lilly sound like ? to me too!
Lilly glad you had a lovely holiday! :) x

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on October 31, 2011, 09:25:22 pm
Yay!! Welcome back Lilly!! Hope you got lots of BD in ?. Yeah my lap is in  3 weeks tomorrow ? im so anxious about it. I'm in the ?WW Now so hopefully I can cancel the lap altogether.
Did you test yesterday afternoon Lilly? I'd test every 12 hours just to be certain You catch the LH surge
Lisa- I was confused with your posts coz I thought you were around ovulation not af. Hmm it sounds like ovulation symptoms your having.
Linzee - maybe your cycle is longer bevause you Havnt ovulated yet. Remember the 14-16 day luteal phase ? Maybe you've been extra stressed this month. I know some months I'm more anxious than others
I'm having issues with this app a lot more often now. It won't open and b4 it just shut off and I lost my post. I love this forum but I wonder if there's a more efficient one we could all move to ??

I tested at 6pm when I got home from Work, will test again after work tonight. Lisa hope you get a smiley face today!

I love this forum and reading what everyone says, I'm on it all the time, love how supportive everyone is of each other. And totally in awe of missingmyangel of how much work she must put in keeping track of everyone's dates and so on. Wish u all the best and pray everything stays well for u. Only thing I dislike bout this is the app itself. Sometimes I can't write at all so don't even try. Thankfully can always manage to read others comments tho!! I'm 9 days late now, have not had AF for over 6 weeks but have lost count the amount of BFN's I've had in the past week! One in hospital yday when I got took in for bad tonsillitis. I think it might just be being ill that's making AF late :( its driving me crazy, I just want to see those two lines and it's only ever one! Sorry this is so long and boring, not wanting to use emoji incase half or all of my comment somehow disappears! Happened before. Good luck to you all xx

Yeah Lilly you gotta make an appointment to get the results from the gp coz 2 months until the fertility specalist is such a long wait.

Yep C, I'm in Melbourne? Had to work too?
So I did an OPK when I got home, negative..It was my last OPK that I had & I've decided not to use them anymore. I've had 2 occasions where I had ? signals & both cases negative. 
Just going to go with the flow & see what happens, would help to BD? regularly to.

Just watching the fashions in the Cup now, some amazing outfits as usual!
Linziee19 have you considered booking in with your doc to talk about your late AF and also the concerns you had about last month's? I don't know how to help re your AF re-setting or when to expect ?it must be very frustrating for you. ?
Diva81 good luck for your every 2nd day plan. Other plus is that around ? the hormones can make ? a bit more of a priority!

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on November 01, 2011, 05:33:00 am
Yeah Lisa I think using the opk tests are very stressful ESP when you think your near ovulation but then get negatives. Plus it does get exoensive to keep buying them. Every second day is perfect.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on November 01, 2011, 05:51:01 am
Well I did the research & OPK's can be a waste of time,  they can't always pick up LH. You could quite possibly be ? & completely miss it. Apart from that it's expensive & they reccommend testing twice a day! I couldn't be bothered to be honest?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on November 01, 2011, 06:33:49 am
I think the only good thing about the opk tests are that you can, if your lucky, know exactly when you ovulate therefore know how many DPO you are and when to start testing as early as you could get a pos. Look at the end of the day every second day of intercourse and what will be will be.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on November 01, 2011, 06:36:42 am
I'd be lucky to BD? every second day but it would be good lol?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on November 01, 2011, 06:42:20 am
Hmm Lisa it's hard isn't it. Like I've said before, my husband gets annoyed at me too about the pressuring of every second day until this month which is our last month until the op. It's annoying it takes the thought of an op and sperm analaysis to make him realise he just has to grin and bare it ?

Hi Ladies, have been reading this thread for a while. I'm needing some advice. I'm 4 days late for AF according to a 28 day cycle however have tried a HPT and got a BFN. My cycles since coming off the pill haven't bee that regular however have been shorter. 24 & 29 days. Over the weekend I thought AF was coming had dull cramps and back pain, nipples are a little sore. However nothing. Since then the aches have almost gone away. I'm not sure when I O'd I think it was around the 16th. So today make me 32 day in. Any advice. I hate this waiting game I just want to know either way.

Hi everyone. I'm now 8 dpo and waiting.the last week is the longest I think.
Lisa my husband is the same about the sex drive ? but he's a lot better after the last 9 months of trying. Maybe after another period he ll realise how crap it is to get it again that he ll get more into it
Lilly you could just make an appointment at the GP and tell your partner the appointment has been pre-booked ?.

Hi Lilly, I'm currently on warfarin and had a miscarriage 6 weeks ago because of the warfarin. Not allowed to ttc yet but hoping to get the go ahead soon, when I will have to switch to the clexane injections.

Post by: C on November 02, 2011, 08:04:22 pm
Hi everyone ?????
Mommytobe - does it burn when you do Go? Frequency to urinate could be a UTI. Which is really common with  lot of intercourse. It's not a STD or anything like that so don't freak out.I'd go to the gp. He might do a urinalysis for you to see if it's a UTI. Maybe give you antibiotics if required
Well I'm on CD 9 and yesterday I noticed a tiny tiny bit of brown spotting. This morning I've got a little more.  This is the third month in a row this has happened to me. Each month I hope it's implantation coz I got that the first time I got pregnant.
But who knows. I think it could be the start of implantation but then it fails. It's way too early for af. So annoying the not knowing.

Today has not been a good day ? last night I started getting a sore throat so of course all day I couldn't stop sneezing (which hurt so bad!) then while o was driving home I sneeze and it felt like my ovaries exploded (not literally but it sure did hurt!). I ws just wondering if it's happened to anyone before?

Waiting for AF sucks!! Sorry rant over!!

Hi everyone ????
Nikki that's so unfair that your still waiting for af ?. I really hope it comes soon so u can start again. That Must be so frustrating.
Same for u Lisa. How annoying are the guys sometimes.
Well I'm now 10 DPO. I did a test. Negative of course. I know it's early but u still have a slight degree of hope. ?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on November 03, 2011, 11:25:50 pm
Welcome firemommy and goodluck! Lisa: as hard at is maybe a month break from ttc is what he needs? My DP took the first few months to get into it, and now he is fine. Maybe your husband is just scared now that reality as hit and you could actually get pregnant!??
Goodluck for the next week c! Remember last few months we were only 1 day apart!? Can't believe how late I have been lately!

Mommy2Be- I was getting cervical mucus & the other day the odd cramp or two & also noticed that at times I felt like I needed to pee, it felt like pressure, yet didn't need to pee. It was frustrating! I haven't noticed any other mucus though but hubby wants to BD? tonight haha
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on November 04, 2011, 01:45:22 am
Hey Lilly. I thought thst the other day that we were a day apart in ovulation but now we re about a week away. My af is due in 5 days.

Post by: C on November 04, 2011, 06:19:24 am
Mommy2be I think you should see a gp and get a referral to a gnaecologist. It's probably nothing but you sound really worried and there's nothing worse than trying to diagnose yourself. That way you will get answers from a professional and your mind will be more at ease. Hope your okay

Hi all, crazy- sometimes especially If your partner has a low sperm count it's better to BD every second day.
A gynecologist is a specialist of the reproductive tract.
Umm... 6 week late cycle sorry I tried to remembe everyone who posted but forgot your name! Do you have PCOS?? Are you stressed, depressed or anxious? These are all possible reasons why AF could be late.
Yay!! I got results back! DP sperm  Is normal..... That was unexpected. Not sure if that was what I was wanting or not, cos now it's me that could be something wrong with and we'll have to Investigate Further....
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on November 05, 2011, 01:23:09 am
Hello ladies?

Update here,  it's CD 21, was supposedly ? somewhere around the 1st & 5th. We only BD? once & that was on the 1st. Don't like my chances this month. 12 more days until AF? is supposed to arrive.
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on November 05, 2011, 01:31:30 am
You never know Lisa I ?'d on cd21 but I guess better to expect the worst then to have our hopes held high only to get disappointment...
I'm on CD45 and 25dpo and still no signs of AF.. Haven't been BDing every 2nd night as planned but that's ok... Just wish AF would come already and get regular!!!!
I hope things with you n hubby pick up for next month Lisa!!
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on November 05, 2011, 04:30:45 am
CD 45? Omg Nikki, you must be sick of waiting! ? 
Hubby & I spoke about ? this morning & he & I are certainly on a different page?
When he suggested I go off the pill we did say we will see what happens etc but I assumed we were TTC because he knew that I don't want it to drag out to long because I'm not getting any younger. Also he was the one who suggested buying the ? OPK's & again I assumed we got those so we could get some BD? action in & increase our chances. I almost worry that he has taken a double step back & I'm the only one who really wants to conceive asap. I think I'm just going to take a step back now, I can't keep bringing it up, I feel like a broken record.
So how are you ladies going? I'm
hoping to see alot more BFP's this month!

???????? to all xxxx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on November 05, 2011, 04:48:42 am
Lisa that sounds like the best thing to do! My DP was exactly the same when we first started. I really think they just need time to settle to the idea of ttc. All the best hun, stay positive he will change his tune after you back off for a bit I'm sure! Xxxxx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??

Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on November 05, 2011, 08:10:14 am
I lost my whole post.
Here I go again... Yay about the sperm Lilly. What does the specialist have in mind for you? Laparoscopy to? To check thr tubes are open ?
Nikki you poor thing. It's so unfair it's so late.
Lisa. I go through the same thing with my husband almost every month. They just don't get it do they. Why can't they just say to us 'let's have sex every night for 2 weeks' ?  That way be have a better chance of conceiving then all this stress and nagging would be over
I'm still having brown spotting. I'm 11 DPO but I think it's af of its way. This seems to happen to me the last few months. I've done a test this morning and it was negative. Yeah it's early but some ppl do get a positive.
I guess im now at thr stage of counting down until the lap. Bring it on
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on November 05, 2011, 08:13:11 am

Same mine just got deleted! My specialist isn't il just before Christmas. If I'm not pregnant this cycle I still have one more cycle to try! Goodluck with your lap I hope you get some answers!!
Lisa I'm a manager too and it's so hard and puts extra stress on you which you should keep to a minimum at this time of our lives. In the end he needs to support your decision. Hopefully he comes around in the end  xxx
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Nikki85 on November 05, 2011, 08:46:25 am
It really does Suck!! So sick of waiting!! My DF said the Other day, have u got it yet? N I was like nope n he goes maybe there's a baby?!? I just know there isn't, it's just bc stuffing up my body!!!!!
Lisa hun, that sucks! Males can be so Insensitive!!! Why would he suggest those things n then just back off... Maybe he is scared... Maybe not mentioning it to him will get him to come round... Don't try to BD with him n Then he'll probably realize how good he had it when u were TTC... It's not fair that males can want sex 24/7 but whenever we want it it has to be in there time... Prft! Whatever!!!
We are always here when u need to vent and/or chat anytime!
C- it sux that u haven't gotten ur BFP yet... But here's hoping that ur lap will give u the answers that u need!

Hi everyone can finally post wouldn't let me on yesterday! I went to toilet yesterday and there was brown discharge it startld off quite heavy then lightened up but it lasted all day then today nothing at all. It's 7 days until af. Does this mean I'm out for this month? It was just so early 7 days before?! Spoke to doctor but all she said was wait and see :-(
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: C on November 05, 2011, 09:02:35 am
Thanx girls. I am hoping the lap gets me answers Nikki but I'm also really scared he ll find something that is preventing me from falling. I have only once , a year ago the first month we tried so I'm sure it's all okay but I'm stuck on the fact that I did get pregnant but now nothing has happened in 9 months. Hopefully I just need a flush of the tubes. The dr told me that I am to keep trying after the lap and if I'm not by June then IUI or ivf
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lisa83 on November 05, 2011, 11:00:52 am
Lilly, you would appreciate where I'm coming from being a manager to! I'm just over it now, can't be bothered with it. He just thinks it's giving up. The unfortunate thing is that I no longer enjoy it so why should I keep going?
Title: Re: ??Calling all TTC??
Post by: Lilly on November 05, 2011, 12:07:42 pm
Absolutely Lisa, some days I'm so sick of dealing with other peoples crap. But most days I love what I do. If your completely past that stage then its not fair on you or your staff to continue in that position. Stick to what you feel is right and I'm sure hubby will come round xxx

Hi everyone! I've been reading this forum for about 4 months and just decided to join in! I found out I was pregnant in July and had a missed miscarriage at 10 weeks. I ended up having a d&c and my hubby and I are trying again. I'm suppose to get my period tomorrow and I'm so nervous! I have been having slight cramps but no other symptoms like when I was pregnant before. I just have a feeling that I'm not pregnant but maybe. I'm so nervous that it will take forever to get pregnant again. Trying to get pregnant is so stressful how do you guys keep the stress level down?

Hi everyone
I've had this app for a month now and have finally decided to pop up and say hi. My DH and I are only new to TTC (AF has just finished so we're about to start our 3rd month trying) I'm not getting my hopes up too much this month though as I'm on a bit of a crash diet so I think limited calories may be against me, but I'm looking at it as getting my body as baby ready as possible :-)
I'm from Perth, Australia are there many other Aussies on here? Good luck ladies fingers crossed for som BFP XoXo

I finally got my BFP today! Two positive tests! I'm so excited I'm over the moon. Part of me is trying not to be since I lost my baby at 12 weeks last may. Wondering if anyone had any good advice on how to stay strong and if they had a baby after a miscarriage.
Baby dust to everyone !

I know just how you feel it took me a year and a half to become pregnant. I know your going to hear this from everyone and it's easy said then done but relaxing really does make a difference. My husband and I decided in October that we would stop trying cause every month I was crushed and I'm not pregnant. Don't worry your time will come when it's meant to be! Good luck and lots of baby dust

.Your right we should share our BFP too. Well after 6months trying every second day it was getting very hard so my specialist told me to do it from day 12 of your first day of your period every second day for a week. We also started to give up. I'm 5 weeks now and no symptom except for some cramps.  Hope that helps poppydoll I had the same problem your having and it turned out to be tinny cycts on my overies good luck with that.

My DH and I TTC for 4 months. I only used this app and watched my cervical mucus (sorry if its TMI) to know when I ?. The 4th month I still noted when we BD but I didn't think about it as much and wasn't as stressed, and it happened. I am now 10 weeks. So it is true what they say about not stressing even though it is easier said than done. It was stressful when it didn't happen straight away, but I don't how everyone doing it for years with nothing, has the strength to keep going. I has great respect for all you ladies. Keep trying and it will happen. ?

About BFP, it is true that you need to be relaxed. My last two pregnancy happened when I didn't expect it. But this time around, I need to be aware because we are trying for a boy. I really thought I was pregnant last month, but it was just wishful thinking, huhu

7 days to go before BD!

Hey ladies! Here's a little bit about my BFP! In may of 2010 I lost my baby at 12 weeks de to contracting a serious case of rubella. So my husband and I decided to try again. We did a year a a half of timing and taking meds and nothing was working. Finnaly in October we decided we weren't going to try any more and here I am 6 weeks pregnant :) my first symptoms were sore boobs and cramps and just feeling pregnant. Good luck to all of you who are trying I know you'll get your BFP soon !

Hi ladies, congrats on bfps since last on. Well I ovulated three days ago according to this app. Strange thing happened yesterday and so sorry for too much info but just wondering if this happened to anyone else. Massive gush of mucus, like a huge blob all at once then nothing since. Anyone know what this means if anything? Been bd'ing lots the last 2 weeks so hoping its a good sign x

I have lots of those mucus, of varying texture, color ahahahaha. I've seen my gynae about it but she said it is not thrush or yeast. I have them when I'm stressed or too tired, so she said its nothing to worry about.

What I do is consider the first vaginal mucus after AF ended as a sign of fertility. I also normally have those discharge like 1 or 2 days after BD, I assume those are the aftermath of BD?? Well, let see if others have more info.

No need to take a test. The ?AF showed last night.

I have a question. If I started AF last night do I count yesterday as my first day or today?

Welcome to all of the new comers including Firemommy6, Ysanbau, Edinburghlass, Tpearson11, Mazzi3, Sammie-J, Cupcake!, Emzbon, Nenurris, BabyO, Mamcute, Candi88, Farhanabird, Waiting to be Mommy and Andressa!! So glad y'all could join our jounrney ? and those who have not given dates who would like to be added to the main post, just let me know where you are in your cycle and I'll make sure to update the original post as soon as I can! Also we do not have any ladies in the waiting to ?, ?WW or ?WW lists... So if you would like me to add you, just let me know ?

A huge congrats to the following ?BFP'ers? including Britty11, moon_dancer, Lilly, Glors and Satsil!! I hope you ladies have a happy and healthy nine months to come ?

As usual, I'm sorry for all you ladies who had the evil ? AF show her ugly face... It's never easy and I feel your pain & frustration. I urge you ladies to push through and stay strong, as it is worth it in the end!

Quick update on me... I am (thank ? God) still pregnant and am officially 7 weeks as of yesterday and due in the beginning of ? July! I was not as far as we thought in the beginning (we were not trying so I was barely paying attention to my ? and ? AF dates ? so we were off a bit) but ? blood continues to look good and last Friday we saw the ? beat on ultrasound and I'm officially ? in love!! I'm not in the clear anytime soon ? and will remain high risk throughout my pregnancy but we are praying ??? for success. 

I'm going to try to be around more and I see that some of the ladies ? have formed an additional chat on Kik and I wish the best for you, however regret to admit I will not likely have the time ? to participate in that but I am certainly trying to get better again on keeping up with updates ? here! Also, for those of you who've been having trouble with the ap deleting your post... A ?tip? that might help some of you that works for me (I always do this and it's helpful for longer posts especially) type your post in a word ap or an email and copy and paste it as a response. This way you have a backup copy until its officially posted ?

As always... Good luck ???, lotsa ??? and sticky baby dust to all ?????????

MissingMyAngel, that is great news that your little bean is still around!  I too am due beginning of July, but I went for an u/s yesterday, and judging by my dates I am 6w6d.  However, the tech could see te sac and yolk, but could not detect a baby or heartbeat, even after an internal scan!!  Has this happened to anyone before? is it just too early?

Thanks ladies ? best of luck to you and hoping we all have a happy and healthy nine months! Moon_dancer, a yolk sack and gestational sac is a good sign! That is what happened to me too - I know it's hard to be patient and most ladies go by their LMP to determine how far they are but it's much more complicated than just that. Some women know exactly when they ?, but implantation can take anywhere from 4-12 days... Everyone is different and it is not uncommon to be a week +/- off even if you are really accurate on your dates. Your situation sounds totally normal though! Please keep us posted ?

Hi ladies! I too would like to join in on the conversation, as I really enjoy reading it and find a lot of comfort in it. Congrats to those who got their ?BFP's? too! To missing my angel: firstly lots of baby sticking power and ? to you and secondly I am now in my ?TTW. According to this app I am CD 17 and already going crazy in suspense! I bought an Opk and tested from CD 9 to CD 16 once a day all except for the day I was 'supposed to ovulate?'...silly I know but I forgot ?! However, I didn't get any positive tests...should I be worried? Should I test twice daily or do you think I just missed it? We have been TTC since July, so 4 months now. We BD ? the 12th, 13th, 15th, 19th and 21st of this month and hoping this is the month of BFP!! Ovulation? was predicted for 20th Nov, but my cycle lengths still haven't regulated since coming off the OCP (can be 27-31 days). Hope my chances are high! ????.     ???

Baby dust to all. I think I ovulated yesterday, bAsed on CM. we've been BD every 2 days, hopefully that will do the trick.

Blessed- my mom is also not very supportive about me getting pregnant, luckily DH have the same excited ness for new baby and he's also into BD ahahahaha

Nways, I have a problem, been getting very bad headache, only on the right hand side of the head, it's been persistent for 3 days now. I don't want to take any drugs for it for fear it will disrupt me conceiving, any advice?

Mamacute, you should be fine since you probably have already ?d. I think will ? today/tomorrow as I'm pretty sure I had a positive OPK last night (this app said I would ? on the 20th! But I do have cycles set at 28 days and they aren't quite). I was excited to see it but also disappointed, as we last BD on the night of the 21st. Do you ladies think I have a chance this month still?? We won't be able to BD again till next cycle as DP is away ?

Hello everyone,
I have been using this app for a while but we just started ttc three months ago, so far no luck but I know it's early. Used opk last month and BD all around ovulation time. I have had a lot of symptoms ( nausea, fatigue, headaches, cramps, ect.) I am now 1 day late for AF and my cycles are fairly regular, took a test this morning and it was neg. So now just waiting. Everyone seems to have lots of knowledge so I am here to soak it up.

We were only TTC for a month. Didnt really no wat we were doing so then I started doing all this research and we were just doing BD all da time which he loved lol we started taking elevit and manevit and were getting quite excited but then bf sed maybe just relax a bit cos we don't want to b disappointed so we just went with it and consentrated on other things and sometimes I didn't even wona do BD but we did once in a while. I guess it's best to leave it to nature but stay healthy and I stopped having alcohol and caffeen b4 I knew too. Hope that helps xxx

My DH is ? to be alive if that lightning strike had hit him or the gate he was holding it would be a different story. I never want another call like that. ECG done with other tests and then he complained about having too wee into a cup. Dr has said his baby swimmers would be no good this week ?.

Me and my hubby have been trying or a baby for 3 and a half years when AF came on the 1st it was so light it was pointless wearing a pad previous to this I was showing early signs of pregnancy vomiting, cravings, back pain, really emotional etc, could I have been experiencing a phantom pregnancy because when I took a test I had a BFN btw I took the test yesterday (3rd dec) but I was still slightly bleeding when I took it, please help as my husband hasn't got a clue about a women's functioning body parts!!

Finding it really hard as every month I get my hopes up, only to have then shattered when dreaded AF arrives :(. I have an appointment next month at the fertility clinic for further investigations. x

Tasty chick- I'm not sure I understand fully, but if you are wanting to know if you are pregnant or not, i suggest just testing again in 1 to 2 weeks time. I had phantom pregnancy last mth when I got my AF late by 5 days, so this time around, I'm just trying to chill. Gooc luck to you!

But I've been showing early signs of pregnancy stomach cramps, sickness, cravings etc BUT I took the HPT the day I came off AF and it was negative! I give up I don't wanna try for a baby it's depressing me. four year we've wanted a kid n it's obviously not going to happen!

Tasty chick, yes trying for a baby could be stressful, especially after a long time of trying. Sometimes we need help so a trip to fertility clinic maybe helpful.

I am myself wanting to get pregnant due to age factor, i do hope I'll have another baby before I am too old to have anymore.

Ladies ttc is stressful. We tried for 6 years and gave up. We decided  to travel Australia instead. 7 weeks later we where pregnant. I was on birth control for 6 months after our DS was born he's 5 1/2 now and still nothing. We have decided 12 more months if ttc and then that is it. DH knows I would love 1 more and enjoys the bd but is happy with DS. I think we all need to chill a little stress is not good for ttc having said that I look at my job as a manager and wonder if it's time for a job change.?

My philosophy would be to visit a fertility clinic if I'm not pregnant in one years time, baby clock is ticking!

Emzbon, sorry to hear about nasty AF. I hope next month brings more luck. I think I will be joining you in the next 24 hrs, I don't hold much hope for this month.
Linziee19, have you been to your doc? I really don't know what could be happening but I think it's probably best that you have a professional's opinion, especially when ttc. I hope everything is ok. ?

Hi emzbon.  We've been TTC for just over 18months. We've tried the bd every 2-3 days this month, so fingers crossed!  Problem is my cycles are all over the place, anything between 28-35 days, which means it feels like I  have to wait ages each month. I'm on CD 25 at the moment, but could potentially still have 10 days left until AF due (although we think I may have ovulated early this month!). It's sooo frustrating!  Fingers crossed for you, and lots of baby dust! X

Not been to doc's yet, to be honest I just haven't had time, work is manic at the min! Bad I know, but part of me is putting it off as worried what they will say! On 1Week wait now so hopefully will have a normal AF this time so we can start again!! :o(

Well yet again AF is here!! It's funny coz I dont feel upset thus month, I think it's coz Iv got so used to not being pregnant that I never expect to be! It's now been a year and time for a trip to docs I think :-(
