Trying to conceive
28/05/2013 at 11:05
I haven't started one of these for a while!!!!
not sure the format everyone wants to take but for myself, I don't want to be counting every CD so I probably won't mention much about that but others should feel free to post what they like.
I'm just starting cycle 3 after my mmc in March so it's a bit of a struggle.

Morning Gillsy! I'll be trying to not to count cd days either, so I'm with you all the way there!
Just to get it out there though, I'm in the 2ww on 10dpo. Pretty sure I stuffed up the timings etc (as well as using blooming durex lube instead of baby friendly stuff!!! GRrrrrrrrrr) so I'm fully expecting AF to arrive on the weekend.

Hey GOM. Boo to unfriendly lube.
Fingers crossed for you lovely.
I don't really know how these threads are meant to work but I'm not a big fan of CD counting either so will probably just give an update when I have anything significant to report.
I am on CD14 so if I was normal I would be ovulating but I have had absolutely no symptoms at all! Only OPK'd once this weekend as I've been really busy moving house but it was negative. Last cycle (cycle 1) I ov'd on day 41 though so I'll have to wait and see.

Hi everyone! I think having a separate board is a great idea!
Gillsy hope your doing ok?
GOM have you thought about getting something like conceive plus?
Peanut do you think you could have missed the surge? are you getting any line at all?
AFM back yesterday from a great holiday in Italy. think AF may have finally arrived before we went so waiting to OV now. can't wait to be able to TTC again.

Nope I don't think so Mrs V. Last cycle when I ov'd I had very clear symptoms (sore boobs, EWCM, ovulation pain). I have had absolutely nothing so far. I had a line the OPK but it was definitely negative, much fainter than the control line.

Hi all, Happy Tuesday!
Gillsy - hope you're doing okay.
GOM - hope the lube doesn't stuff things up. Fingers crossed for you.
Peanut - how is the new house?
Mrs V - how was your hol? Hope you had a fab time!
AFM - AF started on Friday so I'm back at the beginning of a cycle again. I have just invested in a Clearblue fertility monitor (so much cheaper on ebay than Boots, if anyone is interested) but think I'll have to wait for my next cycle before using it as I'm pretty sure you're supposed to set it in motion on CD1? I'm currently reading The Impatient Woman's Guide to Getting Pregnant. How useful it will be who knows, but it's quite funny in places and is making me relax a little about the whole journey and even laugh at some of the things I've found myself doing, which can only be a good thing.
Mrs V - I bought some conceive plus from Amazon on the weekend and it has been dispatched! Yay! No good for this cycle but should be familiar with it for next cycle ;)

The new house is great thanks Figaro, we keep walking around saying "wow I can't believe this is all ours!!" Sounds like a good book, hope you find it useful.
I am also thinking of getting some conceive plus after finding out (TMI alert) saliva also kills sperm!

Does saliva really kill sperm?! *Heads over to Amazon for some conceive plus of her own*

CD11, think I'm due to ov around the weekend. DTD last night and aim to go for every 2-3 days for the next week or so.
My nips are sensitive so I wonder if its the beginning of ov...I usually get definite EWCM so we will see what happens over the next few days.
I am unlikely to do personals this time round, but I will be following you all and am here for hugs and support xx
