Eurgh, I guess this means the festive period is over!
Thank you for the lovely comments about the quilts, I was pleased with them.
Sally-Lou, good luck with the regular dtd - any idea if you've ovulated yet?
Enyajee - good luck at the IVF appointment today, exciting times!
MadamRed - hope AF doesn't arrive tomorrow. How are you feeling today? I hope work goes ok.
Tayto - great news on your H's gran! Hope WW tonight isn't as bad as you fear.
Peanut - hurrah for the positive OPK, I guess you've in the 2WW again now then.
Lottie - how strange that AF hasn't arrived - have you done a test just in case?
Hello to anyone else who posted over New Year that I've missed!
AFM, back to work this week, bit of a shock to the system! In ttc news I am totally bewildered. See if you can make any sense of this...
Cd1-5 AF which is usual for me. What was unusual was it arrived on 20th December, only 6dpo. I got a positive OPK on 31st Dec, so assumed ovulation on 1st Jan (cd13). Then from 1dpo I was getting pink discharge on wiping. This turned brown on cd15, then went really mucusy (like ewcm) but with bright red streaks in that evening and I felt really crampy. Fully expected AF to arrive overnight. Then cd16, back to brown on wiping only, so I did an OPK which was positive. Confused!!! Today is cd17, and FF how has me down as ovulating today because of the second positive opk. Still spotting though. My temp went up 0.1 degree C overnight so not very significant there either. No hope at all for this cycle, I just hope I stop spotting and get a decent LP!

Afternoon Mrs 50's! Sorry to hear your cycle is all over the place - I vaguely recall you saying you were still bf'ing - could these anomalies be down to that? Either way, I hope you get a decent cycle with a good LP this time around x
Lottie - excellent news on the appointment - I'm sending huge vibes they will be able to help. When are you off for your (big) birthday celebrations? How long for?
AFM - H's gran has got bad again so we're expecting a funeral before the end of the week. I think the family are just glad they got a good few days with her before she got really bad. TTC wise, trying not to think about it too much! Work wise, I got my official promo letter today and it has a nice salary increase in it - wohoo!
Hello to all who follow!
05/01/2015 at 13:33
Mrs 50s that does sound very confusing! Do your temps post what you thought was the first ov represent what they normally look like after Ov? Like mine go up to 36.something so I know I have ovulated. Do you have a chart you can flash?
Tayto sorry to hear about His gran :( Sending lots of hugs.
Yay to your salary increase!
AFM not much going on TTC wise I am starting to get all into TTC but wondering if subconsciously its because Williams due dates coming up shortly! Hmm!
Oh well still determined to stick to my plan before TTC again.
05/01/2015 at 13:45
Temps are not helping me this time because I also had flu right when I should have ovulated, so I think a combination of fever, general sickness and bf (especially as R has also been poorly so feeding more than usual) is all just messing it up. I'm trying not to be paranoid about the premature ovarian failure that I'm at risk of due to my genetic condition.
Tayto, sorry to here H's gran has declined. I'm glad they had a few extra days with her. Hurrah for payrise!
CC, I can only imagine how William's approaching due date feels, no wonder it has a impact on your thoughts towards ttc. What is 'the plan'?
05/01/2015 at 14:10
Ah okay :( Sorry sounds confusing...! I hope that You get some clear answer soon either way! Fingers crossed
Well I have my plan and then the consultant plan haha! - My plan is just what he's told me to do kinda -
I am setting myself up to loose as much weight as I can before June (It was going to be 4 stone but I am not sure I can wait that long.) I am going to start folic acid high dose 3 months before we TTC, and also get my swab done pre june. and then go all guns blazing :D!
I think I have to have GTT test before pregnancy too...! FUN! But will double check when I go and see the GP!
05/01/2015 at 14:49
Mrs 50s sorry your cycle is messing you about, I hope it settles soon and sorts itself out. Hopefully it's just you being poorly and bfing that's caused the issues.
Tayto - sorry about your H's gran, its good the family got extra days with her. Congrats on the payrise!
Hi CC - nice to see you in the thread, your emotions must be all over the place with William's DD approaching. You've done really well so far with your weight loss.
AFM - CD12. Still getting a flashing OPK on the CB digis. I normally get the static on CD11. So it's either delayed or I missed it! Will wait and see and continue DTD.
Hows everyone finding work today? I'm about ready for packing up but still have 1 hour 40 to go.
Hi to those who follow. x
05/01/2015 at 15:44
Mrs50s - sorry your last cycle was wonky. Hope it settles soon so you can get back into it!
Tayto - so sorry about H's gran. Thank goodness she got to spent extra days with her loved ones. Huge congrats on the official payrise!
CC - my darling, I can't even imagine how you must be feeling. You have been an inspiration to me since I was properly active in this board and I mean that genuinely. Be kind to yourself and let yourself do what you need to do. You've done well on the weight loss so far. I hope June comes around speedily for you.
SallyLou - I hope it's just delayed for whatever reason so you can cover! When do you usually ov?
AFM - had the appointment today, was a bit longer than I thought it would be but it was v positive! H has to give another sperm sample on Tuesday morning and on the same day they'll be able to tell us whether we could potentially go for insemination, or whether it'll be IVF. I thought it would be straight to IVF anyway (and the doctor thinks it probably will be too) - if straight to IVF is the case we could start treatment as early as three weeks time. So I feel positive, even if I am definitely in the DTC camp.
05/01/2015 at 15:45
Being back at work is fine, always feels like the start of a new term! I'm not quite ready to sink back in and go for it full throttle yet but I kinda have to, argh!
05/01/2015 at 16:29
Hi Everyone and Happy New Year to you all!
Hi also to any newbies who I have missed :-)
Mrs 50's - Sorry your cycle seems confusing hope you work it out soon.
Tayto - Great news on the payrise but so sorry to hear about H's nan.
CC - Glad you've got a plan in place and well done the weight loss so far!
Sally - I hope you haven't missed ov. Work is dull, I'm ready to pack up as well and it's only Monday!
Enjayee- Great news on your appointment, it sounds really positive and great that it can happen as quickly as you want it to. How is your H with it all?
AFM - Had a lovely Christmas and NY break actually felt quite relaxed and calm! AF arrived on NYE which just summed up 2014 for me but I took it quite well, I think I'm coming to terms with the fact that it is looking more and more unlikely that we will conceive naturally. Our plan is to go on holiday at some point in the next few months then get the IVF ball rolling in April. I'm petrified of IVF but I know I have to try it and I want to do everything possible to try and get our dream.
In other news so far so good with dry January and I'm trying to lose weight as well so fingers crossed I can behave lol!

Hi everyone. Still new to this forum so forgive me while I am still learning about you all.
Mrs 50s - Sorry but I can't offer any advice on your cycle being all over the place and hope you get some answers soon.
Tayto - So sorry about your H's gran :( Well done on your payrise.
CC - Sending you loads of big hugs. Must be really hard for you with William's DD approaching.
SallyLou - Another one hoping you haven't missed OV. Definitely continue with DTD.
Enjayee - So glad to hear you had a good appointment. Sounds very positive and exciting for you.
LuLu - Sending you hugs as well. Glad you enjoyed your break and hope 2015 will be a much better year for you.
AFM - Please also forgive me while I get used to abbreviations! I am very new to TTC. I came off BC at the end of October and didn't have a bleed for nearly 9 weeks. I understand getting back into a regular cycle after coming off BC can take a while but I did get a little excited with the PG tests. AF then arrived on New Years day....lucky me! In a way I was quite relieved as at least I know where I stand now. The not knowing was really hard.
05/01/2015 at 22:46
Happy New Year, everyone!
Mrs 50s - That sounds so confusing. Hope your cycle settles down soon.
Tayto - That's such a shame about H's gran. But congratulations on your payrise.
Enjayee - That's good that your appointment was so positive.
Lulu - Sending you big hugs. Fingers crossed 2015 is your year.
AFM - I'm feeling ok. Not sleeping very well - kept getting hot and cold flushes last night, but hoping that was due to OH's housemates leaving the heating on full all day. The house was like a sauna! Had a little bit of cramping last night, but with the endometriosis I have no idea whether that's a sign that AF is due or just my body trolling me. My boss has almost finished sorting out my reasonable adjustments plan, so that's something, and it looks like I should finally get my house on the market this month - one step closer to moving in with OH!
06/01/2015 at 08:40
Enjayee - that's really great news that you should be able to start so soon. Hope you get a plan in place today after your H's test.
Hi Lulu - sorry AF arrived on NYE, you will get your dream and we're all rooting for you. Hope your dry Jan goes well - do you have any holiday ideas in mind for April?
Hoddy - nice to see you over here. The not knowing is definitely a mind messer - fingers crossed for this month!
Hi MadamRed, glad you're doing ok. That sounds positive about your work situation and your house! How exciting. I hope AF stays away for you.
Tayto - any news on H's gran?
AFM - Got my peak this morning and TMI lots of EWCM, didn't have time to do anything this morning as I had to get the train to work, so hopefully tonight's efforts will be fine. Car is in for its MOT today, I don't expect any major issues but fingers crossed!
Hi to all who follow. xx

Afternoon all! Thanks everyone re your vibes for H's gran - still no change.
Great that our little thread was lovely and busy yesterday and there seems like a good bit of activity again on our little TTC board. Might start up an intros thread for all the oldies and newbies?!
CC - Huge hugs for you as it approaches William's due date - I can't even begin to imagine how hard that will be for you. Good that you have a plan in place so I'm just wishing away the months for you so you can get cracking! xx
Mrs 50's - Yeah, flu and a poorly baby will defo mess things up. Sending you lots of vibes for a decent cycle x
Enjayee - Excellent news re the appointment - I'm delighted that things are finally moving for you.
Lulu - Sorry AF showed her ugly face; I have everything crossed for 2015 for you.
Hoddy - yep, the not knowing is the hardest bit but glad to hear AF has showed up so you can keep an eye now.
MadamRed - Hopefully the hot flushes were just the room temps! Excellent news on the house - fingers crossed for you x
Sally - Great news on the EWCM! Tonight should be fine so have fun! Good luck for your car
AFM - Feeling nervous, team meeting to announce my role change is this afternoon! So afraid there will be problems
06/01/2015 at 21:22
How did your meeting go, Tayto?
CC, good luck on the weight loss - are you following any particular plan?
SallyLou, hurrah for the status smiley! How often do you have to test? Have a good evening ;)
Enjayee, how exciting that things are moving that quickly! Have you had any more news today?
Lulu, glad you're feeling more relaxed, roll on 2015 babies!
Hoddy, glad AF has made an appearance so you know where you stand.
MadamRed, exciting house news!
AFM, back to negative OPKs today and I got a small increase in BBT this morning so hoping this means I did ovulate yesterday. I'm either 5dpo or 1dpo anyway! The random spotting has also stopped which is a relief. I don't feel very hopeful of being pregnant this cycle as it's been so weird, so keeping fingers crossed that I get an LP of 11+ days.
07/01/2015 at 09:25
Morning all! How're we doing today?
Mrs50's - what was your temp like this morning?
AFM - work meeting went ok yesterday but I think there are some issues brewing but we'll see! H's gran is still the same. TTC wise, I think I'm due tomorrow week.
Hello to all who follow!
07/01/2015 at 10:58
Hoddy - Hi , I don't think I commented on your intro thread sorry! Glad you know where you are in your cycle now!
MadamRed - Exciting about the house, are you not living with your h at the moment? That must be hard.
Sally - Good news on the peak and ewcm lol! Hope your car passed it's MOT.
Mrs 50s - Fingers crossed for you.
Tayto - Glad the meeting went ok, why do you think there could be issues?
AFM - Nothing to report really just looking at holidays lol! Not sure where or when we will go but hopefully somewhere hot in March :-)
07/01/2015 at 11:01
tayto - glad your meeting went well, sorry you think there may be some issues though.
Hi Mrs 50s - I just test once a morning with the Clearblue digis, I occasionally throw in an OPK too of an evening. Glad the spotting has stopped, got my fingers crossed for you.
AFM - car passed its MOT, yippee! I thought it would it's only 3 years old but still always a worry! TTC wise - CD14, heading in to 2ww.
Hi to anyone who follows. x
07/01/2015 at 11:02
Missed you there Lulu - I'm joining you on the holiday hunt! x
07/01/2015 at 13:56
Whoops, it would appear that I was misleading! I meant Tuesday next week :-) So this week we're going to chill out and relax, and then at the end of the working day Tuesday 13th, we'll both know where we stand. Exciting times, even though I'm not too thrilled at the prospect of injecting myself! Still, am sure I'll get over it. Just about to go into a call so will catch up on personals later x
07/01/2015 at 14:16
Lulu - ooohhh, enjoy holiday hunting! We've already decided we'll either do Malysia/Perth & Sydney or Machu Pichu this year. I also want to do some city breaks around Europe too if I can. Any ideas what you might go for?
Sally - that's great the car passed. Good luck for the 2ww!
Enjayee - Good plan on the chilling out this week - hope all goes ok next Tuesday x
