Could'nt find a thead so thought I'd start one for this week. Hope everyone had a lovely weekend - we had gorgeous sun and in the hectic of trying to get suncream on Little Sue I forgot myself so have red shoulders - Ouch!!!
My big news is that AF turned up yesterday so I am absolutely delighted that the TTC journey can start properly!!! I turned on the CBFM and am at CD2 so exciting times ahead!
Have a great start to the week everyone.

New to this as this is the first month we are ttc baby no 1 so very excited and nervous all at once.
We are trying to not get too tied up in it all and to start with not use any ovulation checkers or checking temperatures, CD6 today so exciting times here too.
Good luck with your journey Sue and hope you have a little Sue number 2 to add to your family soon.

Congrats on your AF sue!
Pp- give it a few days and start dtd every other day!
Afm I'm 11dpo I had some brown blood when I wiped in 10dpo but nothing since, my temps are lower but haven't dropped below my baseline, I'm sure she is coming though :-(

Hi PS - how are your cycles doing? Have you decided to test and when? All my fingers crossed for ou
AFM - CD 3 here - my God, after so long on the pill I'd forgotten how heavy my AF's could be. Got to stock up on pads :) TMI I know :)
Wishing you all a lovely short work week xx Sue

I started posting on the MTTC forum last week as felt I didn't really have a lot to add to TTC as stuck in limbo!
However, started seeing some signs of Ov over the weekend and finally got a faint line yesterday :) Hopefully line will get darker today. So tempted to start TTC now but know its better to wait until after first AF.
Pink Panther - Welcome! Hope your TTC journey is short.
Monnie - Hope AF stays away.
PS - When are you going to test?
Sue - Hope AF goes soon and you and start TTC!

Hope everyone had a good weekend, our was pretty chilled but we did a lovely 12 mile coastal walk on Sunday with the dog stopping off for crab sanwiches and a glas of Rose. I also have a bit of a T shirt tan going on which isn't bad for Northumberland! In terms of TTC nothing much to report, on CD20 and feeling a few cramps. Not been tracking ovulation so I've no idea when I would be due but based on a 28 day cycle next wednesday (hope it's on time as we go on hols the 20th!) with H going away in July we're definitely not putting any pressure on ouselves, in an ideal world it would be better to happen when he gets back but if we did fall we'd be thrilled.
Sue - Congrats on AF (what an odd thing to say - only in TTC!) hope things work out well this month and it'll be itneresting to see how the CBFM works out.
Pink Panther we're similar to you - I came off the pill end of March and we're just going with the flow, trying to DTD approx every other day which hasn't been to difficult so far. Good luck with it all.
Monnie - you never know until she arrives, at least you ovulated that's a great step and fingers crossed AF doesn't turn up at all.
PS - hope it's good news, do you know when you're going to test?
Mrs V - you're very welcome here for as long as you want - and just see how you feel this month

Hey ladies. I tested today dpo11 but it was negative. Going to hold out til Thursday to test again as my AF should be due overnight Wednesday. Feeling less optimistic now than I did... Can't believe this is only the end of cycle 3 but that its taken almost 7 months to get to this point!
08/05/2013 at 09:18
Af did show and with vengance. TMi- im soaking through supers, iv never had anything like this before!
PS dont worry iv been going 7 months with only 2 cycles!
08/05/2013 at 13:49
Grif - I've been hoping for the same as we go on holiday on 20th too. Unlikely AF will arrive before for me now though!
PS - Sorry it was negative, hopefully it was just too early.
Monnie - Sorry AF arrived, hopefully it won't be around for long!
AFM - Nothing much to report. OPK didn't seem to be much darker last night but hopefully will be today. I'm just glad that a line showed at all!!

Quick update from me. AF now due in less than 12hrs... no sign of its arrival and my temps have stayed high and don't appear to be dropping. I am expecting to be woken up in the early hours with my AF beginning... if it doesn't happen I will test again tomorrow morning x
09/05/2013 at 09:21
PS - Any update?
I'm still waiting for something to happen. Keep getting cramps but unsure whether its AF or OV on its way! I wouldn't mind either TBH.
Hope everyone is ok.
09/05/2013 at 13:30
Negative test this morning but still no AF x
10/05/2013 at 12:22
How are you all?
Sorry it was a negative test PS
Hope soemthing has happened for you Mrs V - either way!
I'm still plodding along at CD23 and nothing really to report except I have got some cramping and my boobs have been pretty sore. I'm thinking that not having a non pill AF for about 13 years means these are actual AF symptoms but have said I will test at the weekend if nothing has shown - would be CD31 on sat but if I'm cramping already she may show in time. In a way I'd be pretty pleased as it would mean I got back to normal pretty quickly!
Have a great Friday everyone - we're pretty chilled just pottering in morpeth tomorrow as it's a hectic week with me on a course in manchester. The good thing is I get to visit my Mum for a couple of days xxx

Roll on the weekend!
Ms. V - any news? Did AF show up or when are you due?
Grif - I'm with you - was just waiting for AF to show up so I could actively start TTC. I was pleased too when she did show up!! Ejoy visiting your mum
PS - are your temps still high? So you are now 2 days late? Which test did you use? Fingers crossed xxx
Monnie - hope AF eased off. His was also my 1st one since off the Pill and itwas so heavy!!
AFM - CD 6 here so nthing much to report. Will be gearing up for a DTD marahon next week I presume!!
Have a great weekend all!
