Good morning all!
phow are you all?
i have a question for you alall today I am cd40 technicall AF is due today however I have seen no signs of her yet!
According to ff I haven't ovulated yet going by my temps. I did have some spotting 10 days ago though.
my question to you iis do I think as I didn't ovulate there wasn't enough to have a full period , and therefor the spotting was my period? Which would technically make me cd10?
or do I keep holding out for AF?
the reason I ask is because I wasn't to start using cb digital opKs if you remember last month they arrived after I thought I ovulated so not wanting to waste them I out them away for this month.
Help me I'm going mad loloops I've tested hog and bfn!
hello to all ladies and welcome ceejay!!!

oooo I dont know anything about temps .... i'm using OPKs. Hopefully someone else more knowledgeable will along soon!
Spotting - was it enough to start using a pad? If so, then it might count as AF. Seems a bit weird tho?
AFM - CD22 here, The OPK was half positive yesterday (which i know is negative!) but in my usual pattern i get a half positive OPK and then a Positive OPK the next day - So hopefully that will occur today. Although that still means I wont OV until tomorrow or possibly even the next day right .... going to DTD tonight and then going on Holiday tomorrow wit sis and LO but without H. Very much looking forward to Holiday just wish OV was a smidge earlier or holiday a day or two later! I know my cycle is a bit screwed up due to MC and I should be patient but I'm not - been TTC since last Sept!

Morning lovely ladies, I am so glad it's Friday!
Monnie I can't help at all with temping, it's all a foreign language to me. Hopefully one of the more knowledgable ladies will be along soon to offer some advice. It must be very frustrating for you though with not knowing what's going on.
Horsefan, I hope you OV early and catch the egg this month. Perhaps by DTD the before you go you may well catch it anyway. Fingers crossed anyway. It would be lovely to hear some positive news. Particularly from one of us that have been through tough times lately.
AFM- I am on cd14 of a normally 33 day cycle, I'm thinking that OV could be anytime from Tuesday onwards. We've been trying to DTD every other day just in case it's early though. I really am trying not to put too much pressure in myself but its just so bloody hard. I know I'm not the only one to have gone through a tough time lately but I feel like some crazy obsessed woman. All I can think about is being pregnant again!
I'm going to a hen do tomorrow, it's going to be pretty mental and whilst I'm looking forward to it, I'm also going to try and watch what I drink a bit.
05/04/2013 at 09:13
Monnie- Havent a clue about temping, OPK's etc. Sorry! Hope you get some answers though! Email me!
HF - Hi! Sounds good if you will have a positive today - fingers crossed. I agree with imp we need some good news! Hugs to you xx
Imp - I wouldnt advise getting blind drunk. I had a wee bit too much to drink last week and one more drink would have set me off. I completely agree with you on this - I really am trying not to put too much pressure in myself but its just so bloody hard. I know I'm not the only one to have gone through a tough time lately but I feel like some crazy obsessed woman. All I can think about is being pregnant again! I am exactly the same. Hugs xx
AFM - We're officially trying again now, even though I have no idea where I am in my cycle after the mc, I dont know whether to take the ERPC as CD1? Or should I just wait for AF? Do I want to see AF? I really dont know what to feel. I'm in limbo. I thought I had some EWCM yesterday but it could be anything. I really dont know. I bought some vitamins yesterday and plan to start them again this weekend. Still got all my pregnacare ones in the cupboard which makes me sad.
05/04/2013 at 09:36
Morning Rodders! Thanks for making me feel more normal, but I'm sorry that others understand at all!
As for what's your cd? I counted the erpc as cd1 and got AF on cd33 as normal. I think I was fortunate last month that my body liked into action. I totally understand about limbo, I was exactly the same last month. It's totally normally to not really know what you want. I wanted AF desperately in the end so I knew where I was at, but I did have a little fry when the witch arrived! Hugs for you though whatever happens.x

Hi, me again. My hormones have gone frigging mental, we are having some plumbing work done at home and the plumbers apprentice is H.O.T..... 19yr old, has turned up on a motorbike yesterday/today..... Holy hell!!!!
05/04/2013 at 09:45
Hi all, TFIF indeed!!! Week from hell!
Monnie, I wish I could help, I do vaguely understand charts but as I said to you on FB earlier I'm not seeing anything conclusive on yours - mine is as bad as yours this month too. Happens to us all occassionally.
HF - I so hope you are ov'ing tomorrow, that would be great timing before you head off.
Imp - enjoy the hen party, hopefully you will ov soon and be able to relax a bit.
Rod - Hoping it was ewcm, best of luck for starting TTC again.
AFM - CD26 today, going by my last 2 charts I have normally ovulated CD16 but it hasn't hapepned this month. Don't know whether I will be expecting AF in the next 10 days or so or if this cycle's gonna roll on. I haven't been longer than 35 days so far in my 11 cycles off BC, but before that I was basically cycleless due to PCOS :(
05/04/2013 at 10:42
Imp that really helps! In that case, I'm on CD19. Used to Ov around CD16/17 which is when we DTD....fingers crossed!
TT - All you can do is wait and see if AF shows. How do you know you havent Ov'ed? Sorry, I'm out of the loop lol x
05/04/2013 at 11:09
Monnie and TT - I feel your pain on the charting/ not knowing where you are front. Mine's still limping along with no clear pattern too. Monnie, do you have some IC OPk's that you can try to get an idea of where you are before you try the CBD's?
HF- FX that the timings work out for you!
Rod - I can't help on your questions I'm afraid but am sending you a big hug instead in case that helps a bit. xx
AFM - CD23 and going nowhere. But still DTD as much as possible regardless.
05/04/2013 at 11:13
Also, to catch up on a few from late yesterday, as I didn't get back on:
Rose, have you had any spotting today or has it stopped?
Gillsy - so sorry that you're getting fed up. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be. Perhaps your AF will show up sooner than 4-6 weeks - you never know. Sending you lots of love and hugs xxx
Rod - Sorry didn't really explain that part did I! Just cos I've been doing temps and charting. My temps been up and down like the himalayas this month so is pretty useless really. There's a small chance that something just went wrong with the temps tho, I have had a lot of restless nights and a cold as well so these could be affecting my readings, but I dont think that is the reason.
05/04/2013 at 11:22
i do have some Ic opks but i just dont trust them. but i guess i could . also becasue of clear blue gate i bought a box of 20 , and then the saga happened and clear blue gave me another 20 so i guess i could just use them as i have a months free supply from them
05/04/2013 at 12:48
Monnie - sorry I don't know about temping - I think I may get into it after a few months but will try the relaxed approach at first. Hopefully AF is staying away for a good reason and you maybe ovulated slightly later than you thought.
Horse Fan - Enjoy Vienna - maybe sneak in a morning quicky before you head off tomorrow! Also love the hormones, I've been swooning over Damon from the vampire diaries - don't even think I can blame the hormones he is just super super hotness!
Imp - enjoy the hen do! A friend of mine swears alcohol was the key to her getting pregnant during a supposed one off 'goodbye' sex session with her ex. They're now married and just had number 3.
Rod - good luck with trying, I have heard that soemtimes bodies can do a trial run pregnancy and you can be uber fertile after a miscarriage so fingers crossed, don't beat yourself up for feeling sad though you've been through a lot (you too Imp and Horsefan) so big hugs.
TT - Sorry about the week from hell, here's to a lovely weekend!. Hope your cycle doesn't go on to long - it's good you have been having cycles off BC so at least that's a positive.
Penny - enjoy DTD as uch as possible!
Well for me operation seduction was a success last night. Will try and do every other day for the next couple of weeks as then H is away for 2 weeks on a course (but back at the weekend). This month I'm mainly trying to get a handle on my body off the pill which is very strange - not looking forward to that first AF!
Hope everyone has a good friday xxx
05/04/2013 at 14:15
I've still not had AF since coming off the pill the end of February, I'm 10days late to my period tracker app (entering fertile week) but tests said negative.. We are just carrying on as normal and trying - fingers crossed. We are just doing the "lets see what happens & have lots of s*x" method haha
My friend who's just caught with no2 have given me some OPK's, so I might try them out this weekend...
05/04/2013 at 21:02
Hi everyone, another late post from me, bit tricky to get on during the day so not sure if anyone's still around.
AF is here properly today so I'm CD1 again. I'm still taking my B vitamins to try to extend my LP as at the moment I don't think it's long enough to sustain a pregnancy (the longest its been is 10 days, shortest 5 days, averaging 8 days) Thinking of starting to temp to be more accurate but a bit reluctant for some reason- those that do, is it very intrusive or is it more like 10 seconds first thing and done?
Monnie I love my CBs ... mostly because I think I just like POAS (weirdo!)
Hugs for Gillsy, Rod and all those that need them.
At least the one advantage of being CD1 is that I don't feel in the least bit guilty for having wine tonight!! Silver linings and all that ;)

Hi all. Dropping in late again as we were out viewing a house then packing for Barcelona tomorrow. Woohoo!!!!
Monnie - I'm not sure about your cycles but were you using the green tipped OPKs??? I usually use the blue tipped ones and happened to buy some of the green ones when I was stocking up and I was getting a line on the green ones when there was nothing on the blue ones. I'm thinking they could very easily be misleading??? The blue ones worked for me in January very well. I can send you the details if you want to give them a go?? Got them off Amazon.
HF - did you get your positive OPK today??? DTD last night would be perfect if you did.
Imp - I know how you feel!!!! Really hope you ov soon and you catch it!!!
Rod - hugs. Hope everything gets back to normal soon for you. In the meantime keep DTD and having fun with it. Have you done a pregnancy test after your ERPC?? I was over 3 weeks to get a negative which was v disappointing as I knew nothing would start again until this was clear. I counted the day if the ERPC as CD1 but not sure if that's what your supposed to do.
TT - all the waiting is rubbish. Hope you did ov this month.
Penny - thanks. have fun with the DTD and keep at it!!!
Grif - it's an interesting time coming off the pill. Hope you get a handle on your cycles quickly.
Chicken - it can sometimes take a while for first af off the pill. Everyone is different though. Just keep an eye on our body and keep DTD!!!!!
Rose - thanks. I ope your vitamin B kicks in and your LP gets longer.
AFM - me and H are DTD every other day right now and not because we 'have' to but more because we want to which is quite nice. We'll be having some fun in Barcelona too. Don't think we'll end up having a baby called Barca or anything like that as I doubt I'll ov for another couple of weeks. Still not decided whether to take my OPKs with me. Part of me thinks that's really sad but then I've started them and it would just make all the ones I've done up to now and the ones after the holiday pointless as I could ov when I'm away and never know it. What would you do???
06/04/2013 at 07:58
Gillsy that would be fab if you could please! Xxx
06/04/2013 at 10:11
Gillsy - i hope AF turns up soon Im feeling abit abnormal at the moment. It seems everyone I have asked has gotten back to normal quite quickly, & here I am nothing... Ohwell!!
Hope all the things that you all want on this thread happen this weekend :-)
