Trying to conceive

Really odd morning. After temps dropping on 10 and 11dpo, today 12 dpo it rose again! So there was me getting excited as by now i have either started spotting or AF has shown up and guess what... BFN again! grrrrrrrrr. How annoying.
Now i cannot explain the temp rise (if anyone can that would be marvelous), but i think i might be able to explain lack of spotting or AF as i have been taking Vit B complex this cycle for my short/spotting lp and this seems to be doing the trick. So even though it was a slight dissapointment seeing lack of lines on the test, i am feeling positive that the Vit B is doing its stuff and lengthening my LP, which is good right? Now ive just got to wait it out till she shows up. Had cramping since Monday so surely it has to be soon.

Ooh pleaaed to hear this. Either way I think you are right and this is good news. Fingers crossed af doesn't show x
Afm, same day and similar position. Another bfn. Tiny bit of spotting earlier.boobs still v sore. I'm going home to Ireland for a few days today without oh and going to try not to test as I would prefer to not be apart if I got a positive. So just waiting for AF now!

Vikster - Sorry bfn but good news about the spotting, what is it exactly you are taking? I think I might have to try this!
Veecee - Sorry you're also in the same position I hope you get an answer soon.
AFM - Had a teeny tiny amount of spotting yesterday which seems to have gone now, I think I only noticed it as I am really checking ha ha. I am due between Friday and Tuesday so I think af may arrive Friday which does make sense with when I think I ov'd (it would mean my lp is 14 or 15 days). Think I will have to look in to what Vikster is taking to help with the spotting each month.

Lulu - its these www.tesco.com/.../Details. Apparently it can help with hormone imbalance which in turn can lengthen an LP and/or help with spotting, although it could just be a fluke as I only started taking on CD2 this month and they can take up to 3 months to have any effect. Will keep you posted to see if it dramatically lengthens it, but its looking good. Fingers crossed AF stays away for you too.

Great thanks Viskter I think I will try these! Been thinking about trying something for months so will try these. Do you still take folic acid with them as I see they contain it?

Vikster - I don't temp so can't help but I hope it's a good sign. Thanks for the tip about vit B - I think I have a short LP (from the 1 month I managed to track ov!) and get spotting so might give these a try. With the E.primrose, vit D, folic acid I am already taking and adding vit B I am going to rattle!
Veecee & Lulu - fingers crossed!
Afm, cd2 of cycle 7. Fed up, really thought we had covered everything possible this month. Weird thing is AF seems to have already be stopping/stopped. No idea what's going on a 1 day AF is def not normal for me (probably not for anyone!).

Make sure you take the Vit B complex not just the B6 as it doesnt have the same effect apparently. Yes i still take Folic Acid, i see it cant hurt as your body will get rid of the things it doesnt need if it is in abundance. Im actually quite excited that it seems to be working.

Hi all. CD12 here, OPK still negative and poor OH has cancelled a late meeting so he can come home and dtd before I have to leave for work tonight. Oh dear!! I would so love to be less concerned about timing, but when CDs 11-14 fall during my night shifts, we just don't want to knowingly sabotage a month.

Thanks so much Vikster no more questions for now ha ha :-)
Sorry you're feeling fed up Lola B, no idea about your short af sorry x
Hi Barefoot, that is nice your h cancelled a meeting to dtd ha ha! Sorry you still got the negative opk, dtd today won't hurt though hopefully you can still cover ov time. I find it hard enough finding time doing a normal job so it must be so difficult with shift work xx

Vikster: intersesting to hear about v12. Does it help to get rid of spotting? Might try it & add it to the cupboard full of supplements I'm taking for ttc. Fingers crossed the cramps are a good sign for you.
veecee: Have fun away, hope you're gonna keep busy so you don't symptom spot too much.
Lulu: I think you & I have very similar cycles. Hope the spotting wasn't a sign of af
Lola: Sorry to hear that your af arrived yesterday, lots like we're all gonna be be on tons of supplements soon. Take care
AFM: I'm on CD26 (8dpo I think). Think I'm due on Sunday. Been doing really well at being chilled out this month about ttc but this morning my boobs felt a bit sore (which is the only symptom I remember from last time I got my bfp & the only symptom I can't really associate with anything else). It's now doing my head in as I'm struggling not to take this as a positive sign. Doesn't help that I'm not working for the next few days so gonna have to keep myself busy so I don't overthink it (but at the same time willing my body to behave 1 way or the other). Take care ladies x

minisule amount of spotting but I thought I'd felt the familiar twinge I get down there (not quite sure how to describe it) so af is on her way. Better order some opk's then ready for cycle 4.

E vening ladies.
Nice work BF on getting the H to cancel his meeting,
I'm CD24 and no AF yet. So trying not to get my hopes up but it's so tricky. Test yesterday basically said no but then it might about been two early and i tested in the evening. I want to get to friday when it will be day 26 and then I may get really excited. I got my period spots on friday so expected to have AF by now...
