Some personals from yesterday:
MrsLG - Sorry AF has showed up but great positivity on getting started again - hope AF clears off soon & your temps settle down. Lots of luck for this cycle. Re my travel plans, I think we might do New York and maybe Dubrovnik, must sit down with the H and make some plans. My crafts are papercraft so cardmaking and scrapbooking. What sort of stuff do you knit?
Luna - Lots of luck for the 2ww x
AFM - 14DPO & BFN this morning, kinda annoyed now that she hasn't showed as I may need to move my FSH bloods. Didn't sleep well last night so no temp this morning.
Hello to all who follow & I'll get back on later x

Morning Tayto, morning all.
MrsLG - sorry that AF reared her ugly head, hope she buggers off soon so you can start again!
Luna - fingers crossed!
Tayto - sorry for the BFN :-( I hate it when our cycles tease us! Do you think she's definitely on her way? Hope you're not too tired this morning.
AFM - going back in on Wednesday for insemination, there was one egg follicle which was ready for release :-) I know it might not work but I can't help but feel hopeful. I don't know whether it's good to get my hopes up or try to tell myself it's not going to happen. It's difficult to balance. Anyway, taking my egg releasing injection tonight and then it's fingers crossed from Wednesday morning!
Non TTC-wise we didn't watch Gone Girl in the end as we weren't in the mood for it! So H and I had a long chit chat over one bottle of wine and a LOT of water. Then on Saturday we had a good workout - honestly, the cutting down on alcohol means that I was able to run 3.5K without stopping which is really not common for the unnatural runner that I am! - and then went to the inlaws for dinner and lunch the next day. Was really relaxing but super cold!
Hi to all who follow x

Hope you all had a good weekend.
Luna - fingers crossed, I'm a day behind you at 6DPO.
MrsL.G - sorry AF arrived, hope you get on with the digi OPK's!
Tayto - sorry it was BFN. New York and Dubrovnik sound fab.
Enjayee - everything crossed for Wednesday, will be rooting for you. Your weekend sounds lovely though.
AFM - FIL's surprise weekend was great, all went well and he said it was the best birthday he'd had. 6DPO and nothing to report, still getting disturbed sleep so temps are all over the shop. Feeling a little meh about it all at the mo!

Thanks lovely - it seems like an age away but work is mental at the moment so it's not like I haven't got anything to be distracted by! Work is also a bit stressful but, rightly or wrongly, I'm putting this above it all and not letting myself get too wrapped up in it. I tend to worry that I'm not doing my best but whenever I start to overly worry I tell myself that in five years time that WHEN I have my baby/babies that I will look at them and love them above everything whereas this current moment of work will be a distant memory.
Don't stress yourself too much over disturbed sleep. Temping didn't actually work for me as I used to worry that I wouldn't wake up on time or that I'd wake up too early meaning that my patterns would be all over the place ... as soon as I put the thermometer away for good my sleep went back to normal (with the help of an eye mask which I highly recommend). Hope you get some decent shut eye tonight. Xx
Tayto's post has also reminded me that we have started to plan our summer holidays! I've just requested three weeks off in July and I cannot wait, assuming it gets approved (which it should). We're going to fly to Montpellier to meet up with our family who would have been there for five days, and spend two nights in that area. Then we're going to take the train to Barcelona and roadtrip down the Spanish cost to Seville from there, stopping at Valencia, Granada (not that that's on the coast but still) and - wait for it - Marbella for one night. Just want to see what it's like and if it really is as tacky as I think it is! Then from Seville we'll drive up to Madrid and have a mosey around there before flying back to Copenhagen. Started looking at booking.com last night for self catering flats in Granada - love living like locals when we're away - and am already so excited! Anyone else started to plan their summer trips?
09/02/2015 at 10:32
Definitely Enjayee - you do right to put work in the background a bit, you have more important things to worry about right now! I've just been discussing similar at work today, we have our appraisals later, work to me is a means to an end, I'm not overly career minded I'm happy plodding along and being able to leave it at the door (for the most part).
I actually think I might be similar to you and I'm worrying about getting the temping right and it's disturbing things. I might give it up as a bad job!
Your holiday plans sound fab! Seville and Valencia are on my list of places to go.
We are off to Sorrento in July, chilled out and lovely. It's my 30th while we're away so what better place to be?! Thinking of day trips, we might do Capri this time as we didn't bother last time we were there. x
09/02/2015 at 10:54
Thank you for all the nice comments last week, sorry I didn't get chance to come back on work is crazy at the moment!
Tayto - Sorry about the bfn I hope af arrives soon then so you can keep your appointment.
Enjayee - I've just posted to you in DTC, great news on the egg :-) well done on the running too. Your holidays sound great, we are off to Seville in March!
Sally - Glad you had a good weekend. Sorrento for your 30th sounds perfect. Definitely do Capri it is really pretty! x
AFM - not much to report ttc wise I'm really fed up with it all really but still trying to be positive. Work is crazy and driving me mad grrrr!
Hi to all who follow!

Hey ladies :)
Tayto - Sorry for the BFN! I hope either way it arrives quickly :)! Good luck with your appointment!
Enjayee - Yay to having a egg ready! Will be thinking about you on wednesday!
Sally - Give up temping if it is causing you not to sleep well! - Will defy the point otherwise! lol Your 30th sounds great!
Lulu - Big hugs! Sorry to hear your fed up with it all, but glad you are still positive :)
AFM -I have been sat here for 5 mins trying to write a post without sounding like an ungrateful b*tch but I couldn't haha! So will just say hello :D! Haha.
09/02/2015 at 11:06
Tayto - Sorry about the BFN, would AF normally have shown by now?
Enjayee - Good luck for Wednesday xx I would definitely put all your energy into the baby making, work can wait!
Sallylou - Glad you had a good weekend, I don't temp so can't offer any advice other than disturb sleep is the main reason I haven't considered temping! Italy sounds lovely.
Lulu97 - I'm with you on being totally fed up and trying to convince myself I'm staying positive! Its just so very hard when our bodies don't work how we're led to believe they should. Big hugs xx
AFM - Lovely weekend away with H. AF due anytime from tomorrow and I really feel she's on her way. I had let myself get carried away and thought we'd cracked it this cycle, so feeling really rubbish about it all. I just don't understand why its not working x
09/02/2015 at 11:20
Hi Lulu - been looking at Capri today, it does look lovely! Sorry you're feeling fed up!
CC - I do get random bouts of sleeplessness so it could be coincidence, I'll carry it on this cycle but maybe give it up if we aren't lucky this time. Whats the matter? Feel free to rant away however it sounds. x
Wally - glad you had a good weekend, I really hope AF stays away for you. x
09/02/2015 at 14:00
Love it to see the thread so busy! Dare I say we might just be able to go back to daily?!
Enjayee - excellent news on the egg - tons of vibes for Wednesday for you. Well done on the running too x
Sally - Glad you had a lovely weekend & Sorrento sounds lovely for your 30th. Sorry you're in the dreaded 2ww & with disturbed sleep; I really hope AF stays away for you x
Lulu - Wish there was something I could say to help. I jump into bouts of fed up with TTC too. Have some internet weirdy squishy hugs from me xxxxxx
CC - Spit it out! I don't think you could sound like an ungrateful b!tch if you tried!
Wally - Yeah, she should have been here yesterday but, no more than yourself, I can feel her coming. I did the same as you so don't beat yourself up about it - I was convinced I had an implantation dip 7 days ago and almost drove myself nuts the last few days. Don't despair, it can and will happen for you. I tell myself those of us who have to wait longer will have our just rewards :-)
09/02/2015 at 14:23
You are right Tayto. Good to see so many people on here. I have been a lurker for a while then at beginning of year took the plunge and came on board.
Af still not made an appearance although I am getting all the associated pain and headaches I have been experiencing when af has visited recently. Right pain as waiting for her to appear so I can get my repeat FSH done. So frustrating. This waiting around is infuriating :-(.
09/02/2015 at 15:30
Wally - Glad you had a nice weekend with Hubby - Sorry the witch is going to show up!
SallyLou - Fingers crossed you are lucky then! - I love temping but I sleep well! Fingers crossed
Tayto - Ah your so lovely! I love a daily thread! I find Weekly's puts me off commenting once it gets to the end of the week because theres too much personals to try and work out! so I vote for a daily haha!
Hopeful - I hope she arrives soon so you can get your FSH done!
I am okay was just having a funny few moments this morning! I am now tempted to phone and make an appointment to get my folic acid, but then that makes it real and that scares the crap out of me! Eek!
09/02/2015 at 15:31
Hopeful - snap! (again, haha!) I'm hoping she'll show up today as I want to do my FSH bloods on Wednesday. It is infuriating! Can you remind me what the first set of FSH came back as?
09/02/2015 at 15:48
Hi Tayto - daily thread sounds a good idea, we can always go back to weekly again. Hoping you don't need to delay your FSH tests.
Hopeful - same to you, if she's going to arrive she should get on with it!
CC - when did you originally plan on getting your Folic Acid? If you have it, it doesn't mean you have to take it straight away, you could ease yourself back in. It's going to be June before you know it though!
09/02/2015 at 15:52
SallyLou - End of the month is the plan - Gives me 3 months then before we TTC! I just need to grow a pair haha!
09/02/2015 at 15:56
Oh I'd definitely get that appointment booked then lovely! I can understand your reticence though! x
09/02/2015 at 16:04
SallyLou you have just made me man up!
Just booked an appointment for the 16th eek!
09/02/2015 at 16:05
Good on you! Glad to be of service! X
09/02/2015 at 16:06
God I feel nervous haha!
09/02/2015 at 16:09
I can imagine - we're here for all the hand-holding needed, however big or small!
