Morning ladies! I thought seeing as its Friday we should try and get a busy thread and start it early!
What plans has anyone got this weekend? I'm going retro bowling tomorrow day and then going out for dinner tomorrow night. Trying to keep busy and take my mind off the 2ww.
I'm on CD21.... Waiting and waiting until I can test or AF arrives.

Morning Imp. I'm still off work until Monday so just about to get up and go for a run with OH.
What is retro bowling?? Sounds like a good day. I don't have much planned for the weekend - just the way I like it.
With my positive CBD ovulation thingy on Wednesday, I guess I'm also in the 2ww.
Boooooooo to waiting lol
12/04/2013 at 08:33
We can wait together!
Retro bowling is this www.allstarlanes.co.uk/.../gallery
Sounds like you're got a relaxing weekend ahead.

Another 2ww'er here! well with my LP is more like 18 days but I did magically miss the 1st week due to a late emerging pattern on my chart. The wait is dragging though!
1st anniversary weekend this weekend for me, H booked a lovely hotel and I sneakily arranged an upgrade later on so we should have a really lovely room and a huge bed. He also arranged to get bubbly sent to the room but blew that surprise.
I have a bottle of our wedding champagne to take down, and we aren't quite sure if you're really meant to take your own into a hotel, and have been trying to think of how to effectively chill it. I said surely for what we're paying for the place we can ask for a bucket of ice?! He was humming and hawing over it - too worried to ask I think. So I said, well lets just splash out and get a bottle of wine sent to the room then we can take it out of the ice and drink it and put the champers in the bucket instead. Then H goes 'Too late' with an upset face on, and confesses that he'd already arranged it at the time of booking and then he was all gutted cos I'd 'blown the surprise', I on the other hand was kinda gutted he blew it, he didn't have to admit it he could have just said 'nah i'll ask for the bucket' or something surely?! lol. Muppet. Anyway I am sure it will be lovely, unless I test again and get a bfp and can't drink any of it ;) (just kidding, it would totally be worth it for an anniversary bfp)

Morning everyone. So glad its Friday!
Imp - Hope the 2WW goes quickly for you!
Gillsy - Same as Imp, hope you can manage to keep yourself occupied.
TT - Your weekend plans sound lovely. Are you planning to test or leave until you get back?
AFM - Managed to get to Friday without crying in front of any colleagues so that's a result. I have been told to take a half day today by my boss so I'm not overdoing it, which is nice of her :)
TTC wise, still spotting but hopefully it will stop soon and will just be waiting to see when I ovulate. Gillsy - How long after you got a neg test did you O? I've got no idea about these things!!
Meeting up with a few of the girls for lunch tomorrow so looking forward to that. Otherwise not too much planned so far.
I really have everything crossed for an anniversary BFP for you.
If you don't get one it sounds as though you'll have a fabulous weekend though. Plenty of champagne sounds awesome!

Xposted with mrs v. Well done on getting through your first week, it must have been really difficult, I'm sure you'll be glad when you finish up today. Enjoy meeting your friends this weekend.
I bled for about a week after mine, and then I bled again a couple of weeks later.

Morning all Happy Friday!! I am so glad this week is over!
Imp - Enjoy All Star Lanes, I've been before and really enjoyed it.
Gillsy - I'm impressed you are off running on your day off, puts my lardy *** to shame!
TT - Have a fab anniversary weekend with all that champers
Mrs V - I really hope you have a good weekend now you've got this hard first week out of the way x
AFM - TTC wise its CD 12, I'm back in the saddle we've been dtd but I'm not sure when I'm due to ovulate, with a 28 day cycle I'm guessing day 14 but who knows?!
We're off house hunting this weekend but have a weird situation with one of the houses. We have seen it before and really liked it but didn't put an offer in because we hadn't sold our house so weren't proceedable. Now we've sold we wanted to do a second viewing which was all booked, then on Weds evening I saw on Rightmove it was now listed as Sold STC by another agent, its on with 2. The owner still wants us to go and view it though because he knows we are keen, and has apparently told the agent if we offer 230 its ours. 230 was going to be our absolute max offer because it needs a lot of work. Now I just feel a bit odd about it as I'd be realyl pissed off if I was the other people and knew he was still accepting viewings, and also I don't like being told i have to offer the max we were going to to get it. I suppose it doesn't matter if we were going to offer that anyway but it still feels a bit odd now. We're seeing some others anyway so I'll see what happens, whats meant to be will be!!

Imp - the bowling looks cool. Hope you have a brilliant time.
TT - your weekend sounds fab. Hope you have a brilliant 1st anniversary and enjoy the champagne. A BFP would be the perfect completion to a lovely weekend. Fingers crossed!!!
Mrs V - well done getting through this week. I was relatively ok at work my first week back (apart from the tears on the Monday morning) and I think all the smiling and saying "I'm ok" took its toll as I cried all the way home in the car on the Friday afternoon lol. Be kind to yourself, you've had a really rough time. My HPT 3 weeks after ERPC was very very faintly positive. I got a true negative 2 days later which was 24 days after ERPC. I got a positive OPK on Wednesday this week so that's 6 days after the BFN and around 30 days after ERPC. I expected to ov 2 weeks after the negative HPT but it obviously happened a week later. Have you had a negative HPT?
DollyP - that is a strange situation with the house. I would wait and see how you feel when you go and see it again. If you know it's the one the. Maybe it's fated for you?? Best of luck anyway.
12/04/2013 at 10:48
Hi mrs v, well done on coping so brilliantly, it can't have been easy. Relax and enjoy your half day.
Dollyp - I can't help but read your post in dolly partons voice. Good luck househunting!
I really dont know whether to test again or not, If i really am due on Sunday then I think the IC might have had at least a glimmer of a line this morning, which It didn't - so I'm thinking unless my LP is truly the full 18 then I'm out for the month, so within my rights to jacuzzi and drink to my hearts content. However, that said, as a bit of a POAS addict I will no doubt be peeing on sunday 'just in case' we get an anniversary surprise.
12/04/2013 at 11:06
If it was me I wouldn't test again until either tomorrow or Sunday. I'm still keeping everything crossed for a BFP! Whatever happens I'm sure you'd be safe enough having a drink and jacuzzi, especially this early.
12/04/2013 at 11:10
Gillsy - Yes got a negative test yesterday so I guess I just need to be patient now about when I may O. Just glad that its negative and we can start to move on. I have a feeling I might be more obsessed by the whole TTC this time around!
12/04/2013 at 11:11
Also, been meaning to ask how do you get an angel to appear on your signature?
12/04/2013 at 11:25
Imp, retro bowling sounds cool! I can't see the pics on my phone, will have to have a look on the computer later.
Gillsy, I agree, waiting sucks. Hope you're alright anyway.
TT, I would wait as long as you can. Easier said than done I know!
MrsV, hope you are ok. Enjoy your lunch tomorrow!
Dolly, very odd indeed! Hope it all works out anyway.
Is that all of you? I think so!
Not been around these parts much lately, really struggling with it all to be honest. I got a questionable pos OPK last Tuesday, by my reckoning I was due to ovulate on the Monday so I think it was about right. Not sure why I even did it, just found a random OPK so peed on it! I haven't used one for months, and even though we always do it at the right time anyway, somehow this month I'm pinning all my hopes on getting a bfp. I've been a crazy symptom spotter, got the constant twinges since ov, agonising boobs, feeling sicky, keep waking up in the night boiling hot and thirsty. All of this is most likely irrelevant but I can't help desperately getting my hopes up. I'm angry with myself because its just going to make my next period unbearable and I'll be as miserable as sin. I'm planning on testing on Sunday (12 dpo give or take a day), but I may not be able to wait and end up doing one tomorrow as well. Next month will be 18 months since we started trying and I really did not expect to still be sat on the bench.

Mrs V- I think I clicked on my profile picture/name at the top right. The I changed my signature, the emoticons are all there.
OB- It is impossible not to symptom spto so don't beat yourself up about it, it does sound as though you are showing loads of symptoms so I will be keeping my fingers and toes firmly crossed for you. I really hope that this is your month and that you get your deserved BFP.
I can't decide if I would rather see a BFN or wait for SF to arrive, either way it's a killer.
12/04/2013 at 11:40
Morning ladies! Sorry I'm late today, I managed to get yet another virus on my laptop - when I was on FF again! So yet again, I had to hand it over to our IT guy..... luckily he's a good bloke, and if he's noticed what site I was on (again), he'd never say.
Imp - retro bowling sounds fun! Enjoy.
Gillsy - your ability to voluntarily exercise never ceases to amaze me ;-)
TT - your anniverary weekend sounds lush, I'm jealous. Hope you have ana amazing time. FX for a BFP in the next few days for you as well.
Mrs V - I'm glad that your boss is understanding, I'm sure that helps make it that little bit easier. Have fun tomorrow!
DollyP - wow that house situation is complicated - hope things get sorted out.
OB -so sorry that you're finding TTC hard. I really hope that your symptoms are 'real' and that you get that longed-for BFP. Sending you squillions of vibes. xx
I'm CD30 today and might be in the 2ww. If I am, I'n only about 3dpo. My temps have been all off-kilter in the last few days so its hard to see a distinct pattern but my OPK's and CM are all pointing to ovulation on CD27. So - who knows? :-)
I'm seeing my besties at my SIL's house tonight and then spending the weekend picking up last minute bits for my H's birthday next week.
12/04/2013 at 11:43
I don't normally do it, but this month I just can't ignore it all!
With the AF/BFN thing, the way I view it is if I do a test and its BFN, for that day I can put it to bed and get on with my day. Ok the next morning I am just as stupidly hopeful again, and have to go through the same process again, but it ends the horrible limbo on that particular day for me. So if I test tomorrow, instead of thinking about it all day non stop, I'll most likely get a bfn and be able to accept that at least for today, I'm not pregnant. It's an expensive way to deal with my feelings, but it's the only way I can cope. For me, a bfn is no worse than AF showing up.
Just take it day by day, if you feel like you need to test, go for it, if not, hang on a bit longer!
12/04/2013 at 11:45
Sorry Penny, missed you there! Hope you have ov'd and the time passes quickly!
12/04/2013 at 12:30
TT - I'd probably wait until Sunday before testing again.
Mrs V - I'm the same - trying to be relaxed about TTC but losing the battle. Hope ov is quick for you Mrs.
OB - hi lovely. It's impossible not to get carried away with symptom spotting. I really hope it's your month as you deserve it xx
I think I'd rather see AF than a BFP this month if I'm being really sensible about it. My head and heart are fighting big time just now. My heart wants to be pregnant again ASAP, my head says I should have 1 full cycle at least before getting pg plus I've never been keen on having a baby in January or February (don't ask me why, I have no good reason!!!). With fate refereeing, I'll just need to wait and see what happens.
12/04/2013 at 12:36
OB - I so hope the symptoms aren't nothing - I've been exactly the same. Proper crazy times.
Imp - I'm still in the camp where I prefer a BFN, at least that way I'm prepared for AF.
