Hi all, had a look through the pages and couldn't see a thread. Feeling like a bit of a lost sheep at the moment and would be good to have somewhere to 'be' so thought I would start a post. Bit of a fraud posting this as obviously I'm not even TTC at the mo, but keep coming on here (habit) and I'm just floating about!
Hope your all well. As devastated as I am to be back on here, I did miss you all ladies xx
02/04/2013 at 12:36
hi missdeedee, How are you doing? Im sorry you're finding yourself here hun but it is good to 'see' you! This threads been quiet lately, think since saffy's left :( you're certainly not a fraud for posting here you can post here as much as you want even if not actively ttc just yet. Do you know when you might start ttc again?
Afm cd 9 and nothing to report. Did you have a nice easter? I went to a wedding which was really nice, ate faaar too much chocolate so am feeling pretty fat right now lol! xxx

Hello ladies. Not much to say but I hate to see the thread so quiet. Hope you are ok missdeedee, don't feel like a fraud, I can totally understand why you don't want to post in TTC, so makes perfect sense to start a mttc thread. CO, glad you enjoyed the wedding and had lots of chocolate! It was my H's birthday so I made a cake which meant I didn't get any eggs, boo!
I'm mid cycle. Wish I could put the whole TTC thing out of my mind but the last couple of months have been hard. It's my birthday in a week and I'm going to stay with a friend on Saturday so that should cheer me up.
02/04/2013 at 12:47
Hey missdeedee - im so sorry you have found yourself here. As you know i have been in a similar situation to you as have other people so please don't feel alone. And you are welcome to post even if you are not ready to TTC yet :)
C - I hope it was nice chocolate that you had?!
Not much to update. CD11 for me - we will start DTDing again every other day from Friday i think.
Had a nice easter, pretty quiet. Ate lots of nice food yesterday tho so i am not going to weigh myself this week i have decided!!
OH back at work tomorrow after being off for 5 weeks, hes very excited lol.
It has been quiet here, i think like you said CO its since Saff has gone. Its my mission to keep it alive!!
02/04/2013 at 13:07
OB, definite Booo to no eggs! I'm sure the cake you made was scrummy so makes up for it though?! Sorry you're having a tough few months, really wish I could block ttc out of my mind too - just wanna go back to when we first started and werent so obsessed - but I physically can't. It's in my head too much, we know too much and just cant un-know it urgh :( What have you and your friend got planned? Sounds like you have some nice things to look forward too with your birthday coming up too!
Suzie, ooh I love ANY chocolate so it's all nice to me lol but my brother and his gf did make some gorgeous chocolate brownies with cadburys cream eggs melted on top which was extra yummy-ness! Glad you had a nice Easter, yeah I agree to no weighing this week, you're allowed some treats every now and then! Yay to your h going back to work, bet you're both very happy and relieved he's all better!
Lets all def try and keep this thread going :)
02/04/2013 at 13:42
MissDeedee, it is nice to see you even if you're not ready to TTC, you're always welcome :)
CO- Easter wedding sounds awesome.
OB - aw sounds like good times ahead with bday and sleepovers :D
Suz - Bless your H being excited to get back to work. Poor guy must have been bored to tears after 5 weeks. I too am on the no weighing this week wagon! woo hoo. (ok not woo hoo I have a lot of healthy shopping, preparing and cooking to do this week to make up for it :/ )
I'm on CD23 and I haven't ovulated. I am actually hoping its just a rogue no ovulation month (it happens to me I know already) rather than the start of some very long cycles like i used to get when I was a teen/pre dianette (no proper AF at all for years)
02/04/2013 at 18:31
Sorry OB - we must have posted at the same time and i didnt see you!!
Have you got anything nice planned with your friend?
TT - Hes crazy haha, but yes as you know hes had a tough couple of weeks and he is ready and raring to go, ive even let him join the gym today!
Really hope that you ovulate soon :(
Just had a yummy tea and have plenty of points for some chocolate tonight! Have given my cross trainer a miss tonight as OH will be at the gym every night this week so i'll do it when hes out!
03/04/2013 at 06:10
Sorry ladies, work got a bit manic y'day so didn't get back on!
CO glad the wedding was good and that choc brownie sounds amazing!
Hi OB, sounds like you've got some nice plans for the weekend and ahead of your birthday. I know you don't post much on here, but thanks for coming on.
Hey suzie, how's your H feeling now? Glad he's ready to go back to work, you start to get cabin fever being out of routine for so long! I'm not going to do any formal diet or anything but made a conscious effort that I have to start eating better.
TT hope you either OV ASAP or have a no ovulation cycle, I think everyone can have that every so often can't they?
I'm doing ok, not entirely sure when we'll start TTC again, if you had asked me that last week I would have said I needed sometime, but after the weekend I feel completely different, physically I no longer feel pg at all, and emotionally, I had read lots of women comment on it, but I now have that overwhelming urge to be pg again! My H is far from there yet, he's still very hurt and very scared to try again (which I am too, but that's drowned out by the urge!) I'm still in my 'no sex for 2 weeks' stage anyway and only technically cd9 so no rush to do anything. I know the ERPC can mess up your cycles but mine were gradually creeping longer and longer before this so I think if I have a long cycle again we'll possibly start trying this month but more likely I'll wait for AF and see how we both feel next cycle. I'm also a bit worried about trying this month incase it's too soon and it causes a problem, but I don't think that seems to be the case x
03/04/2013 at 08:07
Morning missdeedee - My H is feeling fine thank you. Glad to be back to work! Good on you with the healthy eating. im on weight watchers and its really working for me.
I totally know where you are coming from with the TTC - my H suprised me with the way he was with the MC and he was totally heartbroken (im not saying i thought he'd be ok with it but you know what i mean). Even tho i still felt i needed to ge pregnant desperately, on the other hand i was petrified and it kind of put me off for a while, it really is a head messer! Don't be panicked about your cycles if they do get a bit messed up, as you know mine went crazy and have only just settled down to my 'pre MC' 42 day-ers, but i have found that the 8 months it took, it gave me time to get my head straight and back to normal, if that makes sense?
Not much to update here. Am back to being in early for work. It was my intention to do some exercise before work today, but with OH joining the gym, he isnt going to be back till 7.30 so i am gonna do it when i get home instead. Am officially on holiday countdown, 5 weeks and 2 days to go! And i NEED to be good until my holiday as i have a taregt to make!
Have got my friends mini baby shower playing on my mind at the moment, why oh why did i decide it was the good thing to do by organizing one?! Totally not ok for things like that. I hope she realises how hard it will have been for me!!
Hope everyone has a good day!!
03/04/2013 at 12:53
I know exactly what you mean Suzie, that pretty much sums up how I'm feeling! I obviously have no control over the crazy urge to be pg, but when I give it any thought I get so worried about going through this again :(
Where are you off to on Holiday? 5 weeks will fly by!
That's soooo nice of you to organise the babyshower! I have to admit I don't think I could do it. I couldn't have made it anyway as it was the day after my op, but I completely avoided a dinner with my good friend for her 30th last week as two of the girls that were going are both pregnant and I couldn't stand to see them and sit with them and make the baby chat. I'm ashamed to even write that down and I feel like such a sh!te person for it! I have arranged to catch up with her later in the month though x
03/04/2013 at 18:30
Its very scary, we can go through it together though x
We are off to Tunisia, very excited. We desperately need a break from normal life!
I kinda felt like i needed to organise it as i didnt go to her first baby shower. This is literally just a meal with a group of 10 friends so no need for games etc, but its still a big thing for me to do.
Thats totally normal for you to feel like that, and im sure your friends would understand. I was like that with my friend, i broke my heart when she told me she was pregnant and even though i was happy for her i was heartbroken that i had to watch her go through what i should have been going through.
03/04/2013 at 19:26
Hi missDD, sorry to see you back here IYKWIM. I hope you have some happier news soon. I have no experience of these things, but Susie's advice&understanding sounds good.
What was the wedding like CO? Since I got married I find myself noticing more about the details of weddings than I used to.
Glad you have a nice catch up with friends to look forward to OB.
Fingers crossed for a short cycle for you tiggs.
Glad your H is well enough to go back to work SUsie.
I hope you all enjoyed Easter. We went to H's family, which was nice& then into my nanas. Today I've been climbing in the peaks which was great. Cold but sunny, perfect really. H's 40th this weekend. We already had cake &celebrations with his family-will flash my chocolate rainbow cake I made him when I work out how to. But we plan to go away this weekend too. Originally he didn't want to as he had a race&was in a grump about getting old. But he has changed his mind which is nice. I've also planned a weekend in may for him so he is now getting two!
04/04/2013 at 08:25
just a quick note to say i wont be on today.
I had a call last night from my bro, looks like im to be an aunty again. I can't stop crying. How selfish am i?!
04/04/2013 at 08:41
Oh suzie are you ok lovey? That's not selfish, I had a meltdown on the train last night when a complete stranger sat next to me and was massively pregnant, I actually had tears rolling down my cheeks as I tried to cover it up and stare out the window. It's hard with my friends to as we hadn't told anyone yet so they girls won't know why I'm trying to avoid them. Doesn't make you feel any less like a *** person.
RC sounds like you had a nice weekend, I def want to see the cake, that sounds awesome!
Massive extra hug for you suzie xxx
04/04/2013 at 09:30
TT, hope you ovulate soon or that your cycle isn't too long
Raincloud, hope your h has a lovely birthday, sounds like he will with all you have planned and are doing at the mo! Look forward to seeing the cake you made! The wedding was lovely thanks, very 'spring-like' with the colours and mini eggs for favours. you're right - you do notice more at weddings having planned one yourself don't you, like all the little extras and details you don't realise are there before.
Aww suzie, what you're feeling is completely normal and not selfish given what you've been through. When my cousin txt me to say she was pregnant a couple of months ago (only 2 months since their wedding) I cried! Felt bad for feeling that way but just couldn't help it, I am sooo pleased for her but just insanely jealous and feeling all 'it should be me'. Don't be hard on yourself hun, sending you Internet hugs x
Missdeedee, I know exactly how you're feeling about ttc, especially the need to be pregnant again - it's so overwhelming isn't it. Just take each day as it comes, they'll be good and bad days and I know it's a cliche but time is a great healer.
Afm, nowt to report ttc wise, am getting peed off with the stupid weather now though - Hailstones this morning and absolutely freeeezing! That does not make for a pleasant dog walk i tell ya! Anyway rant over x
04/04/2013 at 10:14
Thanks CO, It's so hard, I feel like I can't think of anything else than babies and TTCing was getting hard enough before this.
Where about do you stay CO? Im in Scotland and our weather has really improved! It's lovely sunshine today and it's actually been warm for the last couple of days. What kind of doggie have you got? x
04/04/2013 at 11:42
It's so much harder after a loss missdeedee isn't it, and suddenly everyone around you seems to be pregnant even more so than when ttc! I'm so glad I found this place and do take some comfort in knowing I'm not alone (although I wish no one ever had to go through it) and knowing that ladies have gone on to have successful pregnancies keeps me going.
I'm from Essex, was sunny yesterday but horrible and grey today and just sooo cold. Glad your weather is better, hope it stays that way! I have a border terrier, he's very cute and a bit naughty too!
05/04/2013 at 08:12
Morning all, CO we have a little beagle and he's the cutest thing on legs, he's been brilliant for me with everything that's happened to, he always be my first little man!
So glad it's Friday! I'm going to see Micky Flanagan tonight which I'm looking forward too, I think he's hilarious! I *think* I had some EWCM this morning too which was a huge surprise as I'm only CD 12, not sure. Very much doubt we'll be trying this cycle before AF anyway so pointless comment!
This thread is so quiet! SP where are you lovey?!?xx
05/04/2013 at 08:25
Morning - im back after an emotional 24hours. Im ok, seem a bit silly now for getting in the state that i was in. Ive had a chat with my parents who have been very supportive of my feelings, as is my brother. It will take time, but im sure by the time the baby comes i'l be excited!
Whats everyone upto this weekend?
I said goodbye to my Mum yesterday who has flown to Australia for 6 weeks. I have a friend around tomorrow night but other than that i'll just be chilling!
Missdeedee - enjoy your show tonight. Im not into comedians much but my OH loves them. I just take too long to get the jokes lol
05/04/2013 at 11:42
I'm not sure if anyone will be back on today but wanted to pop my head in anyway! Sorry for not being about much but I've had a busy week training. If I'm out training I don't get online at all during the day and am then zonked at night. MDD you are very sweet asking for me :)
Suzie - that is totally crap. Poor you. Sounds like you've got a fabulous family round you. How's your H doing? Is he feeling better? It's great he's back at work.
MDD - That's wierd you got EWCM! It would be fab if it was a short cycle - any other ov symptoms? TTC or not it's good to start feeling like you are establishing a rhythm again.
CO - I want a border terrier!!!!! I love those gorgeous wee doggies! Is he/she in the house much alone? That's the only thing I'm worried about in relation to getting a dog.
Raincloud - flash your cake!!!!!
OB - wishing you a fabulous birthday weekend!
Hi TT (urge to call you Kevin obv) - hope your cycle works out the way you want it to! How often do you have an anovulatory.
AFM - crappy cycle for me. I'm CD29 and still not ov'd. I've had three surges in terms of CM, pain etc. I even had spotting on Monday which I thought might mean it would defo happen but no luck. Still low temps. I'm wondering if it's anovulatory although it's unusual to happen randomly so Toni says. It's generally linked to something like PCOS or low weight. we leave for Aus in 4 weeks so it looks like I'll be diving on the barrier reef with no pregancy to stop me! Silver lining and all that. I'm starting to wonder if TTC is for me/us to be honest. I'm exhausted with it and just want to move on with my life. H and I would be happy regardless of what happens but I'm scared of a massive hormonal maternal surge kicking in once it's too late!
Hope everyone has lovely weekend plans!
