Trying to conceive

MrsT hope you manage to get an appointment :)
Just throwing it out there because I don't know if I am the only one but I get confused about where people are in the TTC stages - I use Mumsnet too and they do a little thing in the start of each new thread. It goes like this:
CC, 26, TTC #3 (2 Previous Miscarriages.) 1st month trying.. (add anything else you want.) aka Inositol commenced in May, Blah blah
We can add it to the top of the page and then when we start a new one we can copy and paste so we don't have to keep asking people where they are etc...
Just an idea...
Anyways nothing to report from me :)
CC, 26. PCOS, TTC #3 - 2 Previous Miscarriages, Not Currently TTC, Prepping for TTC... Inositol commenced.
Lulu, 31, TTC #1 for nearly 2 years, unexplained infertility, waiting for NHS refferal for fertility treatment but still trying inbetween just in case :-)
Tayto, 33, TTC #1 for one year, low SA for H, due a HyCosy at end of May.
SallyLou, 29, TTC #1 for 10 months now.
Mrs-T, 30, TTC #2, #1 passed away due to SIDS, Cycle 13, Hoping to start tests this month
PS, 27, Undecided if TTC #2 - One miscarriage (many years ago) majorly Irregular cycles, took 14 months for #1 with HG and premature arrival making me question whether to attempt #2
Mrs LG, 33, ttc #1 for 9 months, irregular cycles and seeing Dr end of may as no sign of ov for past 3 cycles.

I get lost as well so might be worth a try, here it goes:
I hope everyone had a good weekend, weather was lovely yesterday so we got out in the garden :-) TTC wise appointment next week which is the same time as af is due.
Hi to all who follow xx
05/05/2015 at 11:57
I have added you to the top... So that's what it would be like :)!
Fingers crossed for your appointment Lulu! I will be thinking of you!
Glad you had a nice time in the garden! It's been lovely here too! - We managed to paint our shed! (I think it looks awesome haha!)
05/05/2015 at 13:01
Great idea CC!
Tayto, 33, TTC #1 for one year, low SA for H, due a HyCosy at end of May
CC - Wanna flash us your shed??
Lulu - Was the weather not awful with you? It rained pretty much most of Sunday and Monday with us :-(
AFM - To answer the other thread, our anniversary yesterday was spent painting the hall and landing! But we did get into Oxford for a lovely meal at Jamie's!
05/05/2015 at 13:09
Tayto - Added your details :)
Glad its gone down well we can of course edit it to fit us etc
Glad you had a nice meal at Jamie's..I went to one in Cardiff it was fab! What colour did you do the hall and landing?
This is the shed!
Sorry if its huge! Oh and Eric needed to get in on the action! Lol
05/05/2015 at 13:42
CC - That looks amazing! Always love a picture of Eric as well lol!
Tayto - It wasn't good weather Sunday until around 2pm then the rest of the weekend was nice, really sunny and warm for a while yesterday! Happy Anniversary, dinner at Jamie's sounds lovely.
05/05/2015 at 18:29
I hope you are all well? Sorry I've been AWOL!
CC - great idea, I'll add mine below. Your shed looks fab, I'm debating what colour to paint our garden bench, I want to throw some colour in! I'm thinking blue/grey or purple! But I'm being a chicken!
Lulu - we gardened as well (I got a sunburnt head despite sitting in the shade to do my pots! I am ridiculously pale though).
Tayto - happy belated anniversary! We don't have a Jamie's near us - looks yum though!
SallyLou, 29, TTC #1 for 10 months now.
AFM: CD1 - spotting started days ago so knew it was coming. Whole heap of emotions etc but right at this second just feeling meh. Working on bringing my PMA back.
Missed you ladies. xxx
05/05/2015 at 20:24
Great idea x
Chocolate Cupcake, the shed looks brilliant I love it.
Lulu, glad the weather was nice for you. Was pants here in the southwest!
Tayto, my husbands best friend opened up Jamie's in Oxford. He went on to open others so isn't there anymore.
Sallylou, big hugs for you x
AFM, doctors appointment tomorrow evening will me CD3 so hope they start the ball rolling. A whole heap of emotions going on, work is pants and lack of a baby make me want to cry.
05/05/2015 at 21:58
Sally - I had wondered where you got to - sorry its CD1 - i had hoped you were missing cos of some good news x
Mrs-T - that's interesting! I love Jamie's and have been there a few times now. Good luck with Doc's app tomorrow. Sorry about work - is it busy or just annoying ppl?!
AFM - H had enquired at our Docs about a repeat SA but the doc rag him today to question it and told me that one SA was enough to confirm a problem which is totally not true plus the fertility doc had told H to get another one so yet another reason to have no faith in our doc and his fertility knowledge! H is going to get it done before my HycoSy so I'm pinning all my hopes there which I know I shouldn't!

More annoying than anything Tayto, kind of like not being able to organise a pi55 up in a brewery situation. I work in a hotel which has the main evening restaurant but also a coffee shop which is open 10 til 5, 7 days a week which is where I work. I asked the head chef today about holiday to be told to sort it between us three in the coffee shop as he has no one to cover but for me to have a week off they need to work those 7 days. Doesn't really make much sense, but I just want to go to him with my days holiday and be told yes or no. I get minimum wage and just want to go in do the hours and come home not mess around sorting out stuff he should be as a manager.
What an *** your doctor sounds, hope you can get it sorted. The surgery I just joined since moving has just one male and about 5 female GP's so hoping it may help.

Sally - Sorry af arrived, I hope you can get your PMA back but we all know how hard it can be. Lots of hugs for you. Are you off to Italy soon?
Mrs T - I'm so sorry I didn't realise you have had a loss I'm so sorry to hear that. Glad you got the docs sorted.
Tayto - I think your doc should get an award for worst info on fertility ever, is there any way you can change? I hope your H gets his SA sorted before your HyCoSy.
Nothing to report from me. Is everyone voting tomorrow? I'm finding it very interesting this time around as it is so close and still so many people undecided.
06/05/2015 at 12:41
Mrs-T - Sorry work is being so pants - hope it improves some bit! Hope the female docs are of more help too!
Lulu - Not really but as we're in with the fertility group now, I'm not that bothered! Yep - definitely voting tomorrow!
AFM - Got my second high on the cb digis today so expecting ov for Friday - actually would prefer it to be even later as that will help with my HyCoSy arrangements. Still on the no unprotected dtd which is surprisingly easy!!
Hello to all who follow!

Hi ladies. Sorry I only pop in once a week but still not sure if I'm TTC'ing or not (bit of an odd situation I know).
CC - Exciting stuff that you are gearing up to TTC again (exciting for me but not for you yet!)
lulu - Good luck for your TTC appointment
tayto - That doesn't sound like a fun anniversary activity but the meal out does sound good :)
Sallylou - Sorry to hear AF arrived -hug-
Mrs T - I didn't realise you had a baby who'd died. So sorry to hear about your loss. Hope work improves soon x
AFM - PS, 27, Undecided if TTC #2 - One miscarriage (many years ago) majorly Irregular cycles, took 14 months for #1 with HG and premature arrival making me question whether to attempt #2
I keep swaying from being sure we're going to try to being terrified and being adamant we're not. At the moment I'm CD16. Not much else to report!
07/05/2015 at 12:36
Sorry for disappearing!
Thanks for the comments on the shed! I love it!
SallyLou - Sorry that AF arrived :( Big hugs, Can I ask what PMA is?
Mrs T - How did your doctor appointment go?!
Tayto - Fingers crossed for you hycosy!
PS - I am excited to see you here again! - I think it's totally natural that you are swaying! I am totally doing the same! But I want a baby so I have to do it lol!
I am sure you will make up your mind one day or get a BFP haha!
Nothing to report from me! - I need to get a move on and call for some appointments! (Doing the GTT test first) I don't want to so I guess that's why I am putting it off so much!
07/05/2015 at 15:50
Quiet here today!
Tayto - I hope you ov later if it works out better for you.
PS - Sorry you had such a hard time last time, I hope things are different for you now and you get a nice easy bfp followed by an easy pregnancy!
CC - Maybe make one call a day :-)
Nothing to report from me!

Sorry ladies, just had a night away collecting thoughts.
Thanks Lulu and PurpleStar, it was 9yrs ago and was premature labour too and although it was 30wks there was a lot of fighting and it just wasn't enough unfortunately.
PurpleStar, Take time and you wil decide what is right with TTC #2 for you.
Tayto, everything crossed for the hycosy.
Chocolate Cupcake, appointment went OK. Wasn't good but wasn't bad either, first thing she said was its 2yrs because I am under 35 but then wasn't 100% because OH is over 35 and he had spoken to another doctor who said come back in a year. There was also the fact OH had a reversal so does that go against us having tests, but if it doesn't there used to be a 6mth wait so its good to get us on the list to wait. Going to give it a few weeks and then look at private tests. I just want to know tbh, if it won't I can 'move on' plan my life differently etc. At the moment all it involves is children!
07/05/2015 at 20:10
PS - hope you reach a decision you both are comfortable with. My sister had sever HG with her little boy so I have an idea as to why it would scare you going again.
Lulu - hello!
CC - as Lulu says, one call a day - it will all be worth it; I promise!
Mrs-T - I think we had a similar first appointment to you too - not good but not terribly bad either. I hope something happens for you soon x
Nothing from me - off to vote now :-)

Morning, how're doing? Anyone got any nice plans for the weekend?
MrsLG - Sorry you're feeling frustrated & emotional but it is perfectly normal. It's so unfair that we've been programmed to believe you can get pregnant at the drop of a hat! As I said in the other thread, it would be worth checking out temping but, as you ahve an app quite soon, just tell the docs your findings so far. Are you periods heavy/painful/irregular? It sounds to me like you're either not ovulating or not a 'proper' ovulation.
AFM - Peak on the digi today so I think I should be ok for my HyCosy :-)
Happy Friday all - hello to all who follow!
