Happy hump day all
Last full day in the office for me before hols :) Excited. 10/11dpo and got a BFN this morning. Trying to tell myself it's probably too early but don't think I believe that at all.
How is everyone else? Wonder if Tonka will update from NYC

Morning VeeCee. Tests are usually more accurate 4 days before at the earliest, so here's hoping that you've just tested a bit too early, and fingers are crossed for a BFP!
AFM: - I am on the 2WW right now...which is a little unexpected as we aren't supposed to be trying at the minute, but we dtd on Friday (CD11) and i ov'd yesterday (CD15) so although i'm pretty sure that we won't be pregnant this month, there is a slim chance that we might be, so i figured i'd while away the fortnight on here!
RKB - 1DPO

welcome welcome RKB - nice to see ya round here. Would this be a welcome development?
16/07/2014 at 11:56
It wouldn't be unwelcome, just a whole lot sooner than we'd originally planned. I'd be over the moon if we were as it would be my perfect age gap, but at the same time, it's really not ideal, and i'd wanted to get another job before we had a 2nd, but we would cope just fine if it transpires that we're expecting.

Veecee - 10DPO is quite early still, but good that you're remaining realistic.
RKB - this happened to us my first cycle off the pill and even though I'd got myself a bit worked up thinking it was too early, I couldn't help be a little bit disappointed when AF showed up!
Don't think we're in with a chance this cycle, but again, we're still not really trying! If I have a 26 day cycle like I did last time, I'm due on Friday. DTD on around CD10 and CD18 I think, so I think too early and too late, but you never know. We said we'd start trying in September, but I'm going to get out the OPKs next cycle just so I can get an idea of things.

nora - I know i will be disappointed if AF shows up, but i have to keep telling myself that if it doesn't happen this month, then there was a reason for it and we need to stick to our original plan. It was OPKs i used to check for ov this cycle. on CD12, the day after we dtd, the test was negative, not even a hint of a line to be seen. I tested again yesterday on CD15 and it was definitely positive.
When we were trying the 1st time, i used OPKs on our second cycle as i wasn't sure when i ov'd, and that was the month we fell pregnant.

vc - I'm still remaining hopeful for you x
RKB - welcome! we had something similar in April - I ov'ed later than expected so we were in with one chance. It would have been really bad timing as I was waiting for an op on my knee (which they wouldn't do if pregnant) but I was still gutted when it was neg. I tried to tell myself it was a good thing but it didn't work! It does sound like you're defo in with a chance, albeit a small one, so I hope it works out - whichever way you really want it!
nora - OPKS will be great to help you identify ov patterns. will you get the IC's or the CB digi ones? I'm using the latter as part of a trial and I find them great - much better than even the CBFM. They are expensive though.... I probably wouldn't have bought them if I wasn't in the trial but I will continue if no BFP by the time the 3 months is up.
AFM - big temp drop today so FF is not confirming ov for me yet however, I'm estimating I'm about 5DPO and, in my other cycles, I had dips around then (the CL breaking down) so I guess we're out again this month. That's ok though cos I'm only on cycle 2 and probably could do with some more time to fix my knee and lose some weight :-)

Forgot to do a shout out for Tonka - I'm rooting for you! xx

Tayto - I have a few of the Boots ones leftover from last time so hopefully they'll be enough otherwise I'll get some ICs. I don't think I'd fork out for the CBDs - although maybe if we're not successful after a few months. Strangely, I never got a clear positive on my OPKs last time, never as strong as the control line, just slightly stronger than the negative days if that makes sense.
Looks like we're all around the same time of our cycles!
