Wow the TTC world seems awfully quiet here now a days... remember when we had daily threads but ultimately I guess its a sign more of us have got bfps and moved on. sadly I am still not one of those people as after 7 months of trying cycle 3 finally came to an AF ending yesterday evening on cd50. Thus today is cd1 of cycle 4 and my ttc mojo is pretty much at an all time low.
Hope those who follow me have better luck - I think this will be my last cycle here before I move to MTTC (if they'll have me!)

Hi PS. Sorry to hear you haven't been successful yet, hang in there - you will be. When are you allowed to go back to the docs? RE cycles, if your AF ended yesterday, when did it start? Is there any reason that you are counting the end of your AF as CD1 when it is supposed to be CD1 on the day it starts? xx
13/05/2013 at 10:45
No my cycle ended yesterday with an AF instead of a BFP - sorry if the way I worded it confused you x
13/05/2013 at 11:02
Morning, it is very very quiet these days!
PS - Sorry to hear AF arrived. TTC is a rollercoaster of a journey :(
Miss Monkey - Hope your ok.
I haven't got a lot to say. Still waiting to O. Lines getting darker so hopefully will get a positive OPK soon.

Sorry you're down PS and AF arrived - what a bugger! I can see how TTc can be all consuming and having the energy to face another long cycle may be hard but you will and hopefully this AF is another step closer to your BFP - lots of hugs. Also if you do want to move to MTTC please don't feel you would need to leave here completely (although fingers crossed you will be moving to1st Tri instead)
Miss Monkey - Hello!
Mrs V - Fingers crossed for a positive OPK soon
AFM nothing really to report, CD26 and I have been having cramps and on and off sore boobs over the weekend which I know are likely to be AF (although I ahve had the odd oment of 'what if' I won't lie) I do actually need tyo test tomorrow as I am booked in for my 6 monthly colposcopy appointment tomorrow afternoon which you can't have if you're pregnant so picked up some first response tests on saturday. I know it's early and as my first proper period off the pill I have no idea when it will arrive so if it's a BFN tomorrow and nothing has arrived by the weekend I may test again. xxx

Hi Everyone! Sorry no time for personals - will try and pop on tomorrow to do them - I'm at CD9 and got a rise in hormones according to the monitor this morning - Surprised me as I thought it would be later so I guess some serious DTD is on the cards for the next few days :)
Talk soon xx Sue

Special hugs xxxxxx

Well tested this morning and as expected BFN so it means I can go to my colposcopy appointment. Hoping the cramping and boob pain are related to impending AF (but please before Monday and hols!)
Sue enjoy the DTD!
14/05/2013 at 13:13
Sue - Hope DTD plan is going well!
Grif - Sorry it was negative. Hope AF comes soon for you now.
AFM. getting increasingly frustrated through lack of happenings in my cycle. Pretty sure I haven't missed OV surge but OPK line was more faint last night than it has been. I'm hoping tonight's test is more promising.
14/05/2013 at 23:59
Hi ladies. These threads really are quiet... Not many of us ttc'ers is there?
Nothing to report here (obviously) but think I might give opk's a try this cycle and see if that gets me anywhere!

I used to join in the TTC threads over on HItched babytalk, and never really migrated over here as I was starting to feel a bit down about the whole TTC journey. We'll have been TTC for a year in June. We haven't progressed down the Dr route or anything yet. H works away during the week, which makes DTD during OV a little difficult at times. I suspect (and hope) that this is why we haven't managed to conceive yet.
I am currently 3DPO. I have been feeling crampy and have had mild backache for the past three days, especially at bedtime. It feels like I'm about to come on. I also have more EWCM and wind than normal (eww) and my breasts ached today when I carried the washing pressed against my chest. Oh, and I feel sick. I am trying SO very hard not to get my hopes up, but I'm constantly on symptom spotting duty. AF is due in 10 days. Here's hoping...
Purplestar I remember you from last year lovely. It's nice to 'see' you again, although I'm sorry that it's still on a TTC thread. Fingers crossed for you this cycle xx
And lots of baby dust to everyone else xx

Can't believe how quiet it is these days - surely more of us are TTC?
PS - OPK's might be a good idea, I at least feel like I'm doing something!
Figaro - Welcome! Sorry you have been finding TTC a bit difficult. Hope AF doesn't arrive, FX!
Nothing much to report from me, thought AF might be on its way finally but not sure. Will probably arrive when I'm on holiday next week!
16/05/2013 at 20:11
Thanks for the welcome Mrs V!
Still feeling sick as a dog, bleurgh. Both yesterday and today it's come on around 2pm and stays all afternoon/evening. Driving myself demented googling stories from mothers and mothers to be who swear they had sympoms from 1dpo. I need to step away from the computer. What will be will be...
Hope you have a lovely holiday free from AF!
17/05/2013 at 09:43
Morning All! Hope you are all doing ok. It is very quiet here but on the other hand easier to do personals!
Purple Star - have a huge hug. How are you doing? Are you going to buy OPK's for this cycle?
Grif - hope your colposcopy appointment was ok. Did AF show up? Have a great holiday. Somewhere warm I hope!
Ms. V - Hope you are well... any more cramps? Did AF show up?
Figaro - Welcome! Hope its a short journey. How many days until AF should show up? I was TTC-ing for 18 months but was so stressed about the whole thing I'm convinced thats what drew it out. The month I decided I'd give myself to January and then get checked I fell pregnant. Of course the fact does'nt help that your husband is travelling a lot. I was also the same and cursing each month that I was away during the ''key'' days :) Good luck!
AFM: we are on CD13 here and DTD every other day. Today I got 3 columns on the CBFM so my poor H is going to be knackered. I think if we manage DTD today + tomorrow its enough!! Then I'll be on the first proper 2 week wait. My AF is due whilst I am on a business trip to Vegas so that would be fun to find out there!!! I'm being realistic though - chances of it happening first cycle are slim :)
Wishing you all a great weekend
17/05/2013 at 10:13
Thanks for the welcome Sue! Your story has given me some hope. If it does happen for us this month then it will be the same as you - after religiously TTC for the past 11 months I stopped following everything so closely. We DTD on Sunday just because we wanted to and the next day I thought that I may as well update my calendar app thing on my phone and was surprised to see that Sunday was my OV day. I am now 5DPO, AF due in 8 days and counting.
Enjoy DTD today and tomorrow! How exciting that you're going to Vegas (even if it is for business). Good luck to you too, I hope that you do get your good news whilst you're there! :)

I am back :) I have been kinda posting more on Off topic because i was a month away from actually starting to TTC but now the wedding is only 2 weeks away and so will be trying after that's done :) I have downloaded a pink pad app it's free and very basic to track my period and my ovulation days, I really need to get my head around everything with everything. I am not going to try and get too stressed because i know i am going to have issues with getting pregnant... *Silly question alert* When trying to conceive do you just try and DTD Around ovulation days mainly? I know your suppose to DTD every other day to let the sperm grow?!
17/05/2013 at 10:43
HI Aphrodite! Hope everything is going well with wedding planning!! Basically try and DTD every other day in the week of ovulation - thats your best bet
17/05/2013 at 10:47
Thanks Sue :)... Yeah everything is going really well for the wedding plans, I am pretty much all done now just the final treating myself to nice nails etc hehe!
We will start with that then :) thank you
17/05/2013 at 11:39
Figaro - Hopefully the symptoms have a good outcome for you :)
Sue - FX you have done enough this month.
Aphrodite - Hello again. Hope the wedding plans are coming together. Yeah DTD every other day during that week should do it. I know we only DTD 3 times during OV week and we got pregnant!
Still no AF to report but had some bad cramping this morning, very strange. Going to continue with OPK's just in case its OV pains but I doubt it.
17/05/2013 at 13:40
Thanks Sue - yes we're off to Gran Canaria for a week, I cannot wait!! Colposcopy was fine, I'm an old hat noww this is number 3 after I had treatment back in 2011 and I need them every 6 months for 5 years - hopefully this may be the last one for a while as they don't do them while pregnant (likely I'll have one more in Nov though with hubs being away) nHope you're enjoying all your DTD
AF appears to have arrived! I've had soem bleeding today so if it is then I'm pretty pleased as that means I've settled back into a 30 day cycle 2 months after stopping the pill.
Welcome Figaro - fingers crossed the symptoms all mean something, lots of positive vibes for you.
Hi Aphrodite good luck with the wedding - how exciting! We just stated this month and went with DTD every couple of days and probably will for the next few months then get into temping and ovulation tracking if nothing has happened.
Hi Mrs V - how strange AF still hasn't arrived, hope it / or a bfp come soon so you know where you are
