Trying to conceive

Morning all. I'm up nice and early this morning. Getting ready for a run with my friend then I'm going back to the bridal shop with my mum and sister to try on our dresses after the fittings.
Ive got a wedding reception tonight which is one of the girls from my fitness classes So that should be good. Tomorrow will mostly consist of getting sorted for my holiday.
Hope everyone is ok.
Hi to all that follow.

That sounds like a lovely day ahead! I'm meeting some friends at the park with our little ones but just looked out and it's raining.
Cd12 today for me so guess best get dtd according to ff.
22/06/2013 at 08:25
CA that sounds like a lovely day. Enjoy!!
Trifle it's raining here too yuck.
My CBFM gave me a peak today, so only one high day despite all the reading ive done saying I'd get lots of highs first month. Doesn't really matter as we've dtd plenty. Will keep going over weekend too. Going jumping with my horse today although it's not very appealing in the rain. Also feeling much better after yesterday's odd fainting incident at work!! Very odd.
Have lovely weekends all.

It's our first wedding anniversary today and we're helping our friends to move house tomorrow so busy weekend!
CA hope the dresses all fit perfectly and that you have a fab time tonight!
T, it's trying very hard to rain here too. Yuck.
AR glad you're feeling much better, hope you have a nice time jumping, despite the rain. Enjoy dtd all weekend!
AFM, CD30. Normally my cycles are approx 24 days ish. Had a few cramps last night but nothing again today. Can't believe I started the month willing AF to stay away for longer, got my wish, and now I just want it to turn up! Never happy, haha.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend x

Happy anniversary fig!! Have you tested this morning?? I'd be doing them every morning until af showed but then I'm an addict!!
22/06/2013 at 10:04
Thanks AR :)
No, haven't tested today. I got a bit teary last night with H so think I was more upset than I realised with the false +. Did another test yesterday afternoon which was negative, and decided to give myself a break from tests today. Took my temp this morning before getting up and it was 36.7, which looking at other people's charts looks like my temp is probably on its way down (impossible to know for sure as this is the first day I've done it!) but hopefully AF won't be far off. I've ditched the pregnacare now and have a tub of B6 to try instead, although I'm not going to start taking it until AF finally arrives.

Absolutely impossible to judge temps from one reading, that would be uber high for me!!! I completely understand not wanting to test though, sometimes it's easier to just step back and take your mind off by doing other things. If still no af in a couple of days then maybe try again. TTC us such a difficult business!!
22/06/2013 at 10:14
I wake up boiling every morning at the moment, although the muggy weather isn't helping things. Can't believe how easy I thought TTC would be. I just thought it would be as simple as stopping birth control...wrong!
22/06/2013 at 10:37
CA You've got a lovely day planned there today enjoy yourself.
Trifle We've also had rain all morning but its stopped now so fingers crossed you'll be able to go out
AR I didn't realise you'd fainted a work, I hope all is ok with you now. Keep going with the DTD!
Figaro I really understand how you feel, it seems like we're in a similar boat this month with our AFs not showing.
AFM CD30 and still no AF, my longest cycle was 28 days. Like you Figs I've started temping, I've been doing it for 3 days, my temperature has gone up slightly everyday for the 3 days. I'm not sure if that means AF is on her way. I've tried Googling but its impossible to find out for sure what that means. And I guess it could just be because its perhaps been warmer at night?!
I'm still getting tingling boobs, and every so often i get a slight ache in my lower abdomen I think come on AF this must be you coming! I was sure she'd arrive in the night last night. I know a 30 day cycle isn't long but I'm used to 26 and 27 days! Oh well!!
22/06/2013 at 11:24
Ha, I thought AF would arrive in the night too DP, but no. I think your temp comes down when AF is on the way...
22/06/2013 at 12:12
DP temp going up is a good thing. It goes down as AF approaches. Have you tested again? I really would be if i were you, but as i said to fig i'm an addict. Trouble with temps is they don't tell you much without a whole cycles worth of patterns. Going down means AF, going up usually means the opposite!
22/06/2013 at 15:27
Trifle - Have fun with OH!!!
AR - hope you've enjoyed your day jumping with your horse. Hope the weather wasn't too bad either. Have fun with dtd over the weekend too. Hope you are feeling better after your sickness yesterday.
Figaro - Happy anniversary lovely. Sorry you had a rough day yesterday. TTC can really wear you down sometimes. Hope you are feeling better today.
DP - have you tested? I think you might want to consider it.
AFM - well I went for my run this morning. Started out ok but then started feeling like I was going to throw up. Still don't feel 100% to be honest but I've been for my dress fitting and lunch so its not stopping me do anything. AR, maybe I've got your strange bug-thing that you had yesterday?? Hopefully I'll be fine for this wedding reception tonight. After my calm of last week I'm getting a little bit itchy to test today but I promised myself I would NOT test at least until the day AF is due which, going by my phone app and ov is Friday. I'm 8dpo today and starting to symptom spot which I was hoping to avoid!!! I'm more inclined to say I'd prefer a BFN this month due to our holiday in 2 weeks but if I was pg then I'd be happy.
22/06/2013 at 16:16
I tested yesterday and it was bfn. I really think my body is playing games I think AF will be here before the weekend is over. If not I'll test again next week.
Hope you're all having good afternoons x
22/06/2013 at 17:18
The only thing I don't get with temping is how I can wake up sweating buckets but my temp is really, really low!
A high & rising temp after ov is normally good. There is an increase after ov & sometimes a second increase after implantation. A drop normally means AF is on it's way.
I'm CD8 & bored of waiting to start peeing in a pot again. Probably got a long wait - last cycle ov was CD23!
22/06/2013 at 17:59
Spotting and major cramps, AF is on the way.
Hope this cycle is shorter Reb
23/06/2013 at 08:43
Suns out here this morning - yay!! My temp jumped up this morning so looks like i did ov yesterday which matches the CBFM peak, my cramps and temps. I got another peak today which is apparently automatic after getting one. Will DTD again to cover all bases but have done it every day since Wednesday so i feel like we've given it a good go!!
Hope you all have lovely sunday plans. I think if it stays sunny we'll go up to a local country fair/show thing which looks fun.
23/06/2013 at 09:43
AR sounds like you really have an excellent chance this month, enjoy the country fair.
Still no AF for me, I was sure she was going to show last night as we DTD yesterday as there was a little pinkness when I wiped after, sorry far far too much TMI.
My temp this morning dipped a bit though so I think this must be a sure sign shes now on her way.
I've got nothing exciting planned today except housework!!! Hope you're all well.
23/06/2013 at 09:53
Don't worry about the TMI DP - wait until you move onto the tri threads and see the sort of things pregnant ladies discuss How many dpo are you? Hope you get an idea of what's going on soon. I hate all the guessing with TTC! Temping removes lots of that though so i think you'll enjoy temping a whole cycle next time (if you need to!)
23/06/2013 at 10:05
I think I'm 18 dpo if I did indeed O when I think I did! It could have been a day or so later though, I'm 16dpo at the very least I think.
I've been having dull cramping all weekend, it feels like my period got stuck!
23/06/2013 at 10:14
It's so frustrating when you are waiting around!! If AF isn't here by the morning i think i'd be testing again.
