Morning lovely ladies!
Im at an enterprise event today, I'm a "dragon" judging young people's business ideas. it should be quite an interesting day. I've managed to stop my nose running with beconase, I tried everything and its thd only thing that worked so I suspect it's rhinitis that I've got. Hope it doesn't start again today.
Ttc wise- I'm on cd27, I haven't tested, yet, I don't know what to do. I don't think AF is due until Sunday/Monday really, so I don't want to test yet. But my mum arrives tonight for 3 nights, and we'll be out drinking etc.

That soubnds like a fun day Imp. I'm interviewing for most of the day including a lunch so will pop on here when I can. I also use Beconase for my hayfever and it is good, fingers crossed it stays away. I would possibly test but if it's too early to show up a BFP you would drink anyway so maybe just enjoy the weekend and see what happens Monday morning - at least your Mum will be a distraction.
AFM I have actual news to report! Was about to jump on H last night but when I popped to the loo I had a bit of bleeding - just a small amount that then stopped. This m,orning it appears AF has arrived and I'm CD1 but it's quite light. I wasn't expecting it this soon as it's been 27 days since I stopped taking the pill and only 22 since my withdrawral bleed - anyone any experience? I'm hoping it means the pill it getting out of my system quickly and my body settling down but who knows!

Imp - Your day sounds interesting. Hope your nose running stays away. If I was you I would test (at least then you won't feel guilty drinking!).
Grif - I had a 28 day cycle when I came off the pill, I was surprised it was so quick! No real advice to give but do you know when you O'ed?
AFM - Busy day today, meeting for most of the morning and then off site at a seminar this afternoon. TTC wise, still patiently awaiting O or AF! 25 days since termination so not sure how much longer I have to wait for something to happen.
Also, yesterday one of my friends announced she was pregnant. Not surprised as she already has a 3 year old. Pleased for her but gutted as well, I'm sure you all can relate to that feeling.
H is going away on a stag do this weekend and not looking forward to it, hopefully will be able to keep busy though.

Oooh Imp your day sounds exciting! Sorry you're not feeling well still. If I was you, I would test, but be aware that a BFN might turn into a BFP later. Maybe still go drinking but maybe take it a bit easier than normal. As far as I know, you can't do much damage at the very, very early stages unless you get absolutely hammered. BUT, I might be wrong.
Grif I can't help on the early AF front as my first one didn't show for 59 (agonising!) days. But I guess it can be AF. Or it might be spotting? You might need to see how heavy it gets today to get a better idea.
Mrs V - are you using opks to check for O? (I can't remember). Hopefully your body will let you know what's going on soon. That's good news abvout your friend but understandingly a bit deflating at the same time, right? But it will happen again for you. xxx
AFM - getting some cramps today and some irritability so think AF is on her way now. My temp has been pretty steady since O as well so I don't think my body is doing anything particularly special. In a way I'm ok with this as it will allow me to focus on this job situation with a clear head. But I will of course be gutted to see AF all the same.

Hello! Just popping in before my lunch, thinking seafood risotto rather than my usual pasta arrabiata to make the most of AF being here and also it's a bit mroe interviewing friendly (yummy)
Hi Mrs V - hope either AF or a BFP arrives soon and your patience is rewarded. It's completely understandable about your friend - especially with all you've been through just don't feel like you're a bad person for feeling that way you're not at all. I have no idea when or if I OV'd as I haven't been tracking anything - will maybe wait a couple fo months before starting that and see how H copes with DTD on demand!
Penny I saw about your job scenario yesterday - good luck with it! Defintiely would eb gutting to see AF but may well help with what is going on. You also never know - new job and new baby at the same time could be possible! It's definitly heavier than spotting but not what I was expecting (I was thinking exorcist style screetching with the first proper cramps in 14 years!) am keeping a good eye, as gross as that is to say!
18/04/2013 at 12:59
My first AF after the withdrawal bleed was scarily light - I kept thinking it was going to kick in 'properly' but never did. The next one was a bit more 'proper'. So this might really be AF for you, depending on how long it lasts.
Mmmm, risotto - I need to go get myself some lunch!
My cramps are getting more painful - owww :-(

Oh thank you for the link hehe! My brain seems to have failed me today lol!!
I have sooo much to learn before we start TTC lol!
I have PCOS and my periods come and go at random times, i now have an app on my phone to try and keep track so i can hopefully work out when i am ovulating etc! Can't wait too start my TTC journey with you girls :)! I hope you don't mind me gatecrashing a little early but i couldn't wait any longer, we get married on the 1st June and so going to try from then, think its going too a long long journey :)

Hello Aphrodite! No probs. There's a new thread each day so just pop in when you feel like it. I bet you're going to be really busy over the nest few months, getting ready for the big day. So jealous, I want to have my day all over again :--).
There are a couple of ladies round here with PCOS so you're not alone on that front. Which app are you using?
18/04/2013 at 14:41
Thanks Penny, Yeah going too be busy but going to be around a lot too as i am currently off work :).. so i have plenty of time for both Mumdrum and wedding planning :)!...That's nice to know others with PCOS i was diagnosed when i was 17 and kinda not sure what's going to happen etc..! so be nice to learn from others experience etc... and i am just using the free Pink Pad app it just lets you input your periods and how heavy etc.. and it plans when your due to ovulate and also when your due next.. so hopefully over the next few months it will help me kind of work out when my periods are and when i am ovulating etc.. because i know i don't have the standard 4 week periods :) sometimes i go 6 weeks etc.. so fingers crossed!
18/04/2013 at 15:11

i also have PCOS and my cycles arnt regualr and at the moment im not ovulating !
18/04/2013 at 15:13
Thanks Penny - that makes sense, will 'enjoy' it while it's relatively pain free! Lunch was yum - ended up with a Peking duck pizza.
Hello and welcome Aphrodite! I'm a relative newbie too and everyone here is so lovely and friendly - it's defintiely good to have people to go throguh the journey with. Good luckw ith wedding planning it's such a fab time xxx
18/04/2013 at 15:25
I am not on any medication, how did you find out you aren't ovulating is that from the GP?
18/04/2013 at 15:26
Thanks Grif, Yes everyone seems lovely so far :)!
18/04/2013 at 15:49
yes i have regular 21 day progesterone blood tests, that confirm im not ovulating. have you ever been prescibed medication? if not maybe your PCOS isnt that bad, what are your symptoms, have you had an ovary scan ?
18/04/2013 at 15:54
I was diagnosed back in 2005/2006, I was put on to metformin to kick start my periods it did the job, but stopped taking them because it made me awfully ill... and i have had the internal scan back then.. I have all the symptoms, extra body hair, weight, acne etc
18/04/2013 at 15:58
Hello all, I'm just at the airport waiting for my mum to land. Had a fab day and it has totally distracted me.
I haven't tested, I decided I'd wait and just see what happens, I think AF is in her way anyway so probably no need to test.
18/04/2013 at 16:03
Oh i have my fingers crossed that AF isn't on her way!
18/04/2013 at 16:16
I think you should go back on metformin Hun!
18/04/2013 at 16:42
I will speak to my GP when i go next time then :) Thanks for the advice
