Trying to conceive
16/07/2013 at 05:47
Randomly wide awake at 5am this morning, so thought I'd do something productive and start this morning's thread
After yesterday's temp balls up, this morning's temp is back up to 36.9. It's not the highest temp I've had this month but at least it's going back in the right direction again...for now anyway.
Still got some cramping, but I've not had any further spotting. AF is due around Thursday, but as I'm taking B6 for the first time this cycle I'm not sure when to expect it. Pregnacare last month gave me a whole extra week.
Hoping for a quiet day at work and then Luther is on tonight, I'm very excited about that! :)
Hope everyone has a lovely Tuesday, hi to all who follow x

Just wanted to say thank-you all for your lovely messages and support over the last few months - you are amazing ladies and I look forward to your BFP's!
Obviously I'm absolutely thrilled and H was mega chuffed last night but being very cautious as it's early days yet.
As an aside - Slaley Hall has magic fertility properties I may get them to put it on the website!!

Fig your Chet looks good. Dont let ups ad downs etc worry you with temps at this stage. With my bfp charts I had lots of dips and rises etc. As long as they stay up in the same region you can't tell much until af is du. I've everythin crossed for you that spotting is implantation!!!
Gri congrats again. I'm so pleases for you!!
Afm cd 12 and got a high on the monitor today. I only got 1 high Pre peak last month so be interesting to see what happens tomorrow as I don't usually ov until 14/15. Will dtd tonight and keep going it'll after ov now I think. Finally started Pavlov etc yesterday given we are moving in just over a week. P was not terribly helpful so the next week or so is going to be fun!! Off to buy a fridge today for new house. This house and our flat both had integrated ones so we've just realised we need our own!!

Sorry about all the typos. Bloody phone. My laptop is poorly!

Hello all! Another lurker coming out the woodwork.
Figaro- I'm afraid I have not got to grips with charting yet so have no idea what that means but best of luck to you! I've not heard of Luther, what's it about?
Grif- huge congratulations, such fantastic news!
AR- Enjoy sex week! Haha, love it!
As for me, currently CD47. Had a GP appointment this morning as my cycles have been all over the place since coming off the pill in December. I had some blood tests done, which all came back normal, no increased hormone levels, so doesn't appear to suggest pcos but they've referred me for a scan anyway. They also repeated the blood tests. I'm feeling so annoyed about it all though as I don't think I'm ovulating so don't think there's any chance of being pregnant but I'm still testing just to be sure, but seeing all the bfn's is getting me down a bit.

hi all, sorry just a quick post for me so no personals. im not sure how im feeling today, i havent stopped crying yet which is awful as im having ym new passport photo taken today and now im all puffy eyed.
in the past 4 days iv seen 7 BFPs from various people and its just hitting me a bit hard today ! also wanted to absolutely go mental over a 'friend' who was trying for 10 months like me, who has got her BFP and completely forgets what its like to be ttc, patronising cow !!!!!!
16/07/2013 at 09:50
sorry just realised what an awful ranty post that is

Hugs Monnie, I think most of us would be lying if we said we've never felt like that. I've certainly had major bump envy over the last 13 months we've been TTC. It's a hard, unpredictable, painful journey. We're all here though, on days like this, all knowing how you feel, and all ready to dish out Internet hugs whenever you (or anyone else) needs them. Take care hun, be kind to yourself today xx
Hi Mac Girl, welcome! Luther is a gritty crime drama on BBC1. Luther is the main detective. It's quite gory though, 2 weeks ago it was more like a horror than a BBC crime drama. 9pm tonight if you're interested. I love it!
Morning AR, hope you're enjoying sex week! Good luck with the house move. Are you almost there in terms of packing etc? Thanks for the info re charting. I've been driving myself demented looking at other people's charts online, but I guess I just have to wait and see what mine does. *drums fingers impatiently*
Huge congrats again Grif!! So pleased you were able to Skype your H and tell him face to face, rather than over the phone. Hope you're doing okay xx
16/07/2013 at 10:09
Mac Girl, I meant to say, try temping. It will tell you for sure if you're ovulating. You get a clear temp rise after you've ovulated, which is the crosshairs on my chart. Have a little look at Fertility Friend online x
16/07/2013 at 11:19
Monnie - Sending you a big hug, sorry to hear about your 'friend' :( but we are always here for you even if you need to vent or get angry!
Grif - I hope your keep popping back to see us!
MG - Welcome to the TTC board, a lot of girls do temping here and that will tell you if y our ovulating, may be something to think about, I hope all your test's come back clear!
F - Your charts looking good. I have my fingers crossed for you.
AR - Enjoy lots of DTD lol!
Nothing much from me really, AF still hasn't arrived so god knows what's going on with my body!
We have been DTD lot's I think H is enjoying this TTC lol!
Hello to ladies that follow!
16/07/2013 at 11:25
ok another vent coming
why is it when someone gets their BFP they forget what its like to be ttc
and then also why is it someone who ttc for 2-3 months thinks they struggled ? are you frigging kidding me ??????
16/07/2013 at 12:23
I know I don't normally post in this section so hope you don't mind but just wanna say monnie I feel your pain! People who have never had problems ttc will never understand how hard it can be. I'm sick of people saying oooh you've been married over a year now isn't it about time you had a baby etc etc and I wanna scream they have no friggin clue!! It's so frustrating and upsetting but you really have to ignore it, shrug it off and don't let it get you down, I know that's easier said than done though believe me. Our time will come. xxx
16/07/2013 at 12:26
thanks CO, its infuriating isnt it, today i have witnessed someone be congratulated through her ttc struggle. how enlightening it is to see how she persevered!
today she got her BFP, she started ttc in april ! WTF good thing these people are internet weirdies or i would have let rip, i would have actually been locked up by now for GBH !!!!
16/07/2013 at 12:30
Omg I'd be locked up with ya lol x
16/07/2013 at 12:31
good to know its not just me ! i cant control my anger today this is the first time iv had a day like this. i cant control myself
16/07/2013 at 12:32
I'm sorry you are having a pants day monnie. It's so hard when you see BFPs and you are trying. I find it harder in real life than on the internet, more real i guess.
When you are TTC you want it to happen so much that it feels so out of reach and you sort of feel like it won't happen to you. I feel like that and i've had BFPs, i do remember what it's like to feel like you'll never have it happen to you though. I really do. I hope that doesn't sound patronising!!
I think also when people get their BFPs they feel such elation that however you speak to someone who is trying it's hard not to come across as patronising. I don't mean that to put you down at all (see i'm doing it now, lol!!) but jsut when you want something badly it's hard for any words from someone who has it not to hurt.
TTC is a complete ***. It really is. xx
16/07/2013 at 12:36
Just a note on the time thing....i kow 2-3 months isn't long at all but that doesn't mean it can't be painful. I got the BFP before P in 3rd month of trying and conceived P immediately after the mc. Not long i know but my history before this and with the mc etc meant it was a short but very very traumatic and horrid journey.
I hope that doesn't come across as patronising or mean or trying to make light of how you feel at all...just putting a tiny bit of a different spin on it.
Also i think some people genuinely have no idea of how long stuff can take. A friend at work is plannign on trying from her holiday next week. She keeps talking about coming back to school pregnant. I very much hope she does but the cynical part of me thinks she has no idea what she's letting herself in for with TTC!!!.
I hope you take that as i mean it nd don't think i'm getting at you at all. xxxx
16/07/2013 at 12:39
Big squishy hugs all round today I think. Monnie I totally understand how you feel, I am struggling too and if one more person says 'when your periods go normal' or 'if you just relax a bit more you'll have periods' I think I might lose it completely! !
16/07/2013 at 12:49
You're def not alone. Sometimes you keep it all inside and it has to come out at some point. Don't let it get you down though especially as there's nothing you can do about it, some people are just stoopids and some really just don't understand, it's not their fault. Focus your thoughts elsewhere and be kind to yourself x
16/07/2013 at 12:55
Good point Autumn, you never can really know what others have been through, on the face of it 3 months isn't long to conceive but who knows what's happened in those 3 months.x
