Hi ladies, I couldn't see a new thread for this week so thought I'd start one - hope that's okay for a newbie to do!
We had a very wet weekend here, I don't think it stopped raining at all on Saturday. We just pottered around the shops, caught up with washing etc. Looking forward to next Saturday as husband has made reservations at our fave Indian restaurant. Yum!
I am currently 8DPO, AF is due on Saturday. My boobs have been bigger and firmer than normal, I have felt sick every day since last Weds (to the point that I was physically retching on Fri and Sat), I have had CM all week (normally nothing by now), cramps and backache since last Mon, way more gas and wind than usual (gross) and a headache for most of the week too. I can't help but get my hopes up and will despise my body for playing such cruel tricks on me if I get another BFN this month. I made the mistake of telling husband this weekend about all of my 'symptoms' which has had him talking about pregnancy all weekend. Most of his sentences have started with "Well if you are pregnant then..." which has taught me to never mention my symptoms to him again if I get another BFN, as it makes it all even harder when someone is jabbering away all excitedly about something that isn't even true yet.
Hope everyone that follows is well x

Hey Figaro. I'm posting in ttc and mttc as I cant decide where I should be at the moment!
I know you dont want to get your hopes up but I shall be hopeful for you and I will make proper effort to keep coming back and checking how you are getting on this week :)
I'm cd8 of a totally unknown cycle length so cant really report anything useful/interesting for some time yet x

Figaro thanks for the thread - fingers crossed it is good news for you this month, symptoms sound promising so when I come back I hope to see something good.
Hi PS - no hard in posting in both! Hope things aren't too tricky and you're doing ok, hugs xx
AFM I am out of here! We're flying off to Gran Canaria in a few hours so very much looking forward to some sun, lots of cocktails and relaxation. AF seems to ahve buggered off just in time for hols which is good. We won't be fully trying for the enxt couple of months with H heading off for a few months but not going back to preventing either - what will be will be!
Hope everyone has a really good week and here's hoping for some good news to report for when I log back in
Love to you all! xxx

Hi PS, thanks lovely, that means a lot. I know what you mean about MTTC and not really knowing where to go. If I get a BFstinkingN this time I think I'll start migrating over and posting in both (if they'll have me!). This try will be one year exactly of TTC.
Grif, woohoo! Have a fab time and how considerate of AF to bugger off just in time! Enjoy your cocktails - have a Mudslide for me! (Vodka, Tia Maria, Baileys, chocolate ice cream...mmmmm delish! It's like a grown up milkshake)

Hello all :)
Our wedding is 10 days away eek! Means i can start TTC in 11 days yay! lol
We have already planned when we are going to DTD lol... Sounds like a military operation! Going for the every 2 days, luckily according to my Pinkpad app i should be on ovulation week starting the night of the wedding so we are skipping that night. My ovulation day is the Tuesday after we arrive on honeymoon so that day is just DTD day lol! I should have my period or not by the end of the honeymoon... so fingers crossed for me please ladies!
How is everyone else doing?!

HI All - work is manic so hardly any time to post - sorry :(
On the 2WW here - despite saying I was going to be chilled its IMPOSSIBLE not to symptom spot! My boobs are bigger and still hurt but realistically I know it would be a miracle if it happens 1st cycle. I may test early simply to know if I can drink in Vegas - flying out Tuesday for a work conference. - How early can you test and have a hope of getting a reliable result? Will be 5-6 days past ovulation on the weekend..... xx Hugs to all xx

Hi Aphrodite and Sue
Aphrodite - I have everything crossed that you come home from your honeymoon with far more than a few souvenirs :)
Sue - I've seen people on other forums say that they got a faint BFP from 6DPO. No harm in testing over the weekend, good luck!
AFM I am now 11DPO and have resigned myself to waiting for AF to show up. I had cramps literally all day on Tuesday, they weren't really bad, but there was no let up at all. Yesterday I had mild intermittent cramps as well as shocking backache and my poor stomach feels completely tense like when you've pulled a muscle or been to the gym (been a while!). All other symptoms (feeling sick etc) have vanished, although my boobs are still massive. I dreamed I got a BFP last night so I used an IC this morning but it was a BFN. Hoping AF doesn't turn up on Saturday as husband is taking me to our favourite Indian restaurant and all I ever want to do on the first day of AF is stay in bed all day :(
23/05/2013 at 10:57
Thank you, I am not getting my hopes up because i know its very unlikely but we all have to be positive lol..
Sorry to hear about you BFN :(.. I hope you enjoy your meal out with your husband it sounds lovely and sending lots of stay away AF vibes till at least sunday/monday :)
23/05/2013 at 11:26
Thanks Aphrodite. Still trying to keep a PMA...one of these days when AF turns up it will be the beginning of the cycle where I DO manage to conceive...so as crappy as each AF is it's also good to be able to try again. Onwards and upwards...
Looking forward to the new TTC board starting. I'm one of those that finds it dificult to be around so much baby talk. That's one of the reasons why I didn't bother to migrate over from Hitched BT until now. See you all over there!
23/05/2013 at 11:33
Yeah totally understand what you mean, fingers crossed :)
I am looking forward to the new board, I have only just started my TTC but can totally understand why some ladies would prefer to be away from the babytalk forum :) I hope it goes well and it can stay :)!
23/05/2013 at 12:46
Aphrodite I hope you have an amazing wedding day and fingers crossed for a wedding night baby! !
Sue as much as we try to avoid symptom spotting its impossible not to! Enjoy Vegas - I'm very jealous :P
Figaro Sorry to hear it was a bfn but 11dpo is still quite early so dont give up hope just yet x
23/05/2013 at 13:00
Aphrodite you must show us your wedding pics! I hope your TTC journey is a short one.
PS How are you? Hope you have some nice plans for the Bank Hol weekend x
I will take another test on Sat morning (13DPO) if AF hasn't arrived and then fully intend to drown my sorrows on Sat night. I have already informed husband that I will be ordering a bottle of rose with the meal....and I'm not sharing it!
23/05/2013 at 13:02
Oops missed Grif! Another off on holiday!! Jealous of you too but hope you are enjoying yourself :D
I'm looking forward to a new forum too and never imagined my post would result in the decision it has but I am very pleased about it.
23/05/2013 at 13:04
Figaro I'm still plodding along... still not much to report! Unfortunately I work in the tourism industry so I'm working most of the weekend including the Monday. I'm cd11 today so got a long way to go yet :)
23/05/2013 at 13:07
Boo to working! Hope you get to make up for it another time
23/05/2013 at 13:39
Yes will post some wedding pictures :) I am dead excited lol! I hope everyone enjoys their holidays :)
23/05/2013 at 14:00
Sorry to hear about your BFN Figaro, will keep fingers and toes crossed AF waits will after the weekend to appear. As you say onwards and upwards for your next cycle.
Grif have an amazing holiday, have to admit to being slightly jealous having just got absolutely soaked dragging the horse in in the pouring rain and hail.
Sue we are first cycle too and trying to be relaxed about it all, very jealous of your trip too. It is sooooo unfair you are all jetting off while i am stuck here in rainy cloudy england.
Aphrodite fingers crossed you bring the best souvenir back from your honeymoon a BFP., and can't wait to see you wedding pics.
Purplestar hope your cycles start to settle down.
We are CD23 of a roughly 26 day cycle, is our first month TTC and have got the familiar feeling in my belly that AF is on its way, slightly sad but also slightly pleased as getting the first month out the way feels like a milestone in itself. Onwards and upwards and looking forward to an extra day off over the weekend even if the forecast isn't the best.
Enjoy your holidays everyone.
23/05/2013 at 14:05
Welcome PP :) I hope your TTC journey is short and sweet. From what I've read, early pregnancy signs can be very similar to usual AF symptoms so you never know. I have my fingers crossed for you x
