Morning all, I didn't see a thread this morning so thought I'd be brave and start one!
We're halfway through the working week already which is good news!! I can't wait for it to be over, I'm really not enjoying my work lately.
Its CD 23 today for me and I can't help symptom spotting which is ridiculous as its my first cycle. I need to try and not become obsessed as its not healthy. I have a terrible habit of obsessing over things when I want them though.
How's everyone else today?

hi dolly! im cd30 my spotting has stopped which im happy about. and i had my 21day bloods taken last night.
i have no AF pain or symptoms though. i did an opk and a hpt all negative lol my temp dropped again today and looks more like an etch a sketch than a bbt chart! lol

Being new to this Monnie I've no idea what the negative opk and hpt mean, (what is a hpt) but its sounds good that the spotting has stopped and you've no AF symptoms?

Dollyp- Symptom spotting is natural! Hello!
Monnie- fingers crossed.
Afm I'm 6dpo. Currently off work with some form of sickness bug. I feel shocking. :(

Hi ladies, thought I would tentatively re-join this thread. Everyone seems new tho - so quick intro on me - had a baby in 2011 after getting a bfp after our honeymoon. Been TTC for 6 cycles when I got a BFP in Feb. Sadly MC'd a week&half ago. Had to do pregnancy test this morning for the EPU to check everything was 'cleared out'. It was negative which is good in this instance :-). So now we are back on board the TTC train ..... Although Ive read that mc can mess up cycles, so I've bought some OPKs to track it it for a few months
Hi DollyP - step away from the symptom spotting :-). Keeping busy helps!
Hi Monnie - might help to post your chart on the main board and see if any charting experts are around?
Custard - hope you feel better soon :-(
Opk - ovulation prediction kit. It tests your wee for a hormone called LH. LH is the hormone responsible fir stimulating ovulation, so a surge in LH suggests you will ovulate in next day or two.
Hpt - stands for home pregnancy test

Hi girls, good luck to you dolly! sometimes 1 cycle is all it takes!!
Monnie - hope the blood results show that you've ovulated in the last day or 2! Think if I remember your chart correctly that would be a good scenario for you.
Custard - hope that sickness bug is something more ;) otherwise get well soon.
HF - nice to see you but so sorry about the circumstances. Great news about the BFN in this backwards scenario, best of luck for the cycle ahead.
AFM - CD16 but no sign of ovulating, Last 2 cycles its been CD16 but if you excuse the TMI, my CM is dry as a bone these last 2 days, anything but egg white! :( Hope it happens soon. My charts like the himalayas this month!

Sorry to hear you're poorly Custard get well soon
HorseFan - Thanks for your advice on the abbreviations. I only started posting very recently so its nice to meet you
Tiny Tiggs - I hope you get some signs of ov soon

Hi. Marathon Tuesday now complete. Heading to bed soon as I'm knackered!!!
DollyP - it's hard not to symptom spot but we all do it.
Hi Monnie - hope you got ok with your bloods last night.
Custard - hope you feel better soon.
HF - hi and sorry your back here again so soon. Really good news on the negative test though.
TT - keep charting and DTD and I'm sure it will all work out.
AFM- well I did my HPT as requested by EPAS this morning. Still showing positive - the same colour as last week. They've said repeat next Tuesday which will be 3 weeks. Not sure if this is normal. Probably is but I'm so impatient. I started OPKs on Saturday but just wondering now if its totally pointless until I get a BFN???

Hello girls and welcome back HF and TT - lovely to see you both again but not at the same time. There is a few new posters HF but there is still a few of us who've been hanging around since the end of last year :)
I'm cd3 today and trying to stay up beat this cycle as I've no idea if it'll be another extra long one or not. If any of you read the Riding the Stork blog my story was featured today - I'm not a very good writer but hope those who read it enjoyed my first attempt at an entry!
