Trying to conceive

How was everyones weekend? I can't believe is Monday again already!
TTC wise AF still hasn't shown up so its now CD32 for me which is weird. I've had some pretty bad cramping all weekend but it does feel slightly different to normal AF cramping.
I've well and truly got my hopes up now which makes me more reluctant to test again in case I don't get the answer I want.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. We were helping our friends move house yesterday, in the pouring rain...knackered today!
DP, test in the morning with FMU. I know it's hard to get your hopes up and then get a negative, but you won't know unless you test. I have fingers and toes crossed for you lovely x
AFM, CD1 today, at last!! My last cycle ended up being 31 days, which is my longest cycle ever! I'm going to turn on the CBFM at 9am and I have to say I'm quite enjoying this temping malarkey. Quite looking forward to seeing how my chart looks by the end of this cycle.
Hi to all who follow, Happy Monday! x

Oh DP, bless you, I know it's hard not to get your hopes up. What dpo does this make you now? I think a test with FMU like Figaro said would be best hon.
Hey Figaro, at last, eh! I wish I could say that 31 days was my longest cycle! Hope you have fun with the CBFM :)
Blimey, Monday came quick didn't it?! Had such a lovely weekend with H and FIL but Monday can do one now, I'm not up for it!
Apart from DP, is there anyone else who's about to test?

Wasn't around over the weekend - we had the inlaws up for a BBQ including our 3 year old and 7 month old nephews! It actually knocked a lot of the broody out of me ha ha.
DollyP it does sound promising, get a really sensitive first response one which now you're late should give you an answer.
Figaro you sound so scientific! I'm sorry CD1 got you but have fun playing with your new toys (and H of course)
GOM I know what you eman about Mondays urgh - only this week in work though then I'm off for a week.
AFM zero on the TTC front to report - AF has buggered off but been so busy we haven't really DTD at alll although I won't be due to OV until next week. I'm actually thinking it may be a good thing if it doesn't happen this month with H being away but we would obviously be thrilled if it happened. We've booked into the hotel we got married in for a night next week which will be lovely - and who knows we could concieve a little one there!

dolly p- what dpo are you ?
fiagaro- sorry for cd1 !
GOM- thats how i feel i hate mondays !
Grif- wow how amazing would it be if you did conceive on that day !
AFM- im cd6 so cbfm asked me for a stick this morning, had a proper kerfuffle trying to figure out how the stick went in, until i realised the cap was already on the end of the stick -doh!
well it was low which is what i was expecting as i dont normally ovulate until around cd27 so i have a while to go yet !
24/06/2013 at 09:01
DP - You will drive yourself mad by wondering if you dont test lovely. I'd wait until FMU tomorrow now though.
fig - Sorry it's CD1 but atleast you can get the monitor in actionm and plot a whole chart of temps which is fun
GOM - Mondays suck! I'm quite please that from september mondays will be one of my days off!
Grif - Haha the realities of tiny people can often do that to broodiness. I promise it's worth it though!
moonie - i had the same to begin with with sticks! They don't explain that be very clearly i don't think! Have fun with it but don't wait for highs before DTD, mine only gave me 1 high before my peak.
AFm - into 2ww now i think. Temp up again this morning and i think tomorrow FF will confirm ov as Saturday. Which matches my cramps, EWCM and CBFM first peak. We DTD eevvery day from wednesday to yesterday so i feel like i've given it a good shot! Just have to hang about and see now. I'm going to try and not obsess too much so i might not be on here everyday but we'll see how that goes!!
24/06/2013 at 09:08
AR- around cd20 ill start using OPK's also, and i temp aswell and i can sort of see a pre ovulation pattern, so im hoping ill know this time before it happens, then i can see if the monitor picks it up !
wow you definatley have dtd enough ! fx for you hun , will you give us a flash of your chart once you get your cross hairs ?
24/06/2013 at 09:28
I will test tomorrow morning, I'll go and buy a test at lunchtime. I think I am now between 17 and 19 dpo, I last tested Friday am. I've still got cramps this morning.
Figaro - I'm looking forward to hearing how you find the CBFM
GOM - I totally agree Monday was not welcome this morning!
Grif - That would be so cool if you managed to conceive at the hotel!
Monnie - I'm not 100% sure the day I ovulated as I was just going by signs like EWCM, but I am sure it was between 17 and 19 days ago
AR - You're right I will drive myself crazy, I may have already started! Sounds like you are definitely in with a good chance this month.
Thanks all for listening to me go on and on about my missing AF!!
24/06/2013 at 09:57
DP I will keep everything crossed in anticipation of your test tomorrow. I know how you're feeling as that was me all last week x
GOM, pleased you had a lovely weekend!
Ooo Grif, where did you get married? That will be lovely to go back to the same hotel for your anniversary, very romantic! And you never know what might happen!
Haha Monnie, that sounds exactly how I suspect my first try with the CBFM will go! Glad you got there eventually.
AR, are you walking okay after all of that bedroom business?! Ha ha ;) Fingers crossed for you too lovely. I'm already loving this temping business. My temp plummeted yesterday and then sure enough, AF arrived this morning. It's all very clever. I never realised what I was missing out on!
Hope everyone is having a nice Monday x
24/06/2013 at 10:11
Haha yes i'm managing ok! I think H needs a rest though bless him!! I will try nd flash my chart if i can work out how. I guess i can use a screen shot or something clever.
Fig - temping is brilliant! I am a scientist so i love stuff like that anyway but i like it when people are converted to it!!!
DP - thats what we are here for!!
24/06/2013 at 10:14
AF has arrived :(
24/06/2013 at 10:18
figaro just for reference, the cap is on the end of the stick lol that might save you 15 mins haha !
AR you can either go on FF and they provide you with a sharing link, or if you have an iphone/ipad i screen shot it when im in the app
24/06/2013 at 10:23
Morning all, no personals sorry, am rubbish as always pop on here at off my mobile and cant see whats above to do personals.
CD5 here and another converted to temping only started this cycle and finding it quite fascinating watching the chart develop!
H been away with the lads and back tonight, been lovely to have a few days to myself but have missed him like mad.
Lots of baby dust sprinkling and heres hoping for lots of BFPs!
24/06/2013 at 10:37
Sorry DP x I once read someone on another forum say that she always tries not to be too upset when CD1 arrives because at some point CD1 will be the start of the cycle that she DOES conceive and that day will be used to chart her whole pregnancy. That's such a nice and positive way to look at it and I carry that thought with me. Be kind to yourself today x
AR, your poor H! Haha
Monnie, thanks for that!
PP, enjoy having your H home!
24/06/2013 at 10:42
Sorry DP :(
Figaro, I agree, that's such a positive way to look at CD1 :)
24/06/2013 at 10:55
Thanks monnie. I have done it before so hopefully i'll remember when i try. Should get my lines tomorrow i think.
DP - i'm sorry about AF BUT at least you know where you are now and you can start by tracking a whole cycle. Fig is right, at some point you will start the cycle you conceive. That's a fab way to look at it. HOpefully charting the whole cycle will really help.
24/06/2013 at 11:30
Thanks ladies, I had a little cry daft I know, I was so hopeful though as I'd never had a late AF before.
This is my first full month tracking though so it will be a good learning cycle for me x
24/06/2013 at 11:55
I always thought baby dust was spunk until someone corrected me last week! The idea of sprinkling it everywhere has just made me choke on my coca cola and now my nose is fizzing haha!!
24/06/2013 at 12:00
Deff a positive way too look at it Figaro :)!
Sorry DP :) You are one less closer to getting a positive test :)
Grif - Fingers crossed that you conceive little one at the wedding venue that would be lovely!
Good morning too everyone :)!
Nothing much to report, we still haven't really started too TTC as such, Had lots going on since getting back from honeymoon, Started too diet 3 days ago, I have a lot of excess weight that I need too shift. I have no sex drive at the moment so hoping with some weight loss it will come back.
Just a quick question, How long would you wait before seeking medical help IE (GP) if you have a known fertility problem? I have PCOS and wondering do we have to wait the full time (1 -2 years) before going too check if I am even ovulating?
24/06/2013 at 12:11
They will make you wait 1yr unless you are over 35 in which case its 6 months instead before doing the basic tests. They'll prob retest you even if you were diagnosed as pcos years ago just to be sure x
