Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
26/07/2015 at 19:46
I am currently CD31 of a normal 26-28 day cycle, and 12/13 dpo. I woke up this morning to 2 episodes of slight brown cm when I wiped (sorry if TMI!) I haven't had anything else all day until I went to the toilet just now to light red/pink cm when I wiped. I think I am therefore out this month and need to start again!
This month I was using cheap OPK from eBay however never really got a really obvious positive, and would like some advice on what you all feel is the best OPK to use? I also started taking Seven Seas last month but, as was always my problem on the pill, I was forgetting to take them! This month I am going to be much more strict with myself!
Is anyone else starting again for August? Would be lovely to have some cycle buddies!

hello im new here.
I I have two little girls 8 & 4 fell pregnant again in March this year but sadly miscarried at 7 weeks in May ( had a natural miscarriage and first af now trying again only 3 days post ovulation though really hoping we caught they say your "more fertile" after a mc we'll see I guess!

Sorry to hear about your mc, I also had one in April. I never took a test as we weren't trying but looking back I was very tired and unwell a week before the bleeding started and then bled for almost 3 weeks.
I have also heard that too so will keep my fingers crossed for you

I'm also TTC at the moment and need to start again as AF came last week. It's only been my first cycle and I'm getting stressed out already! I have fairly long cycles (36-37 days), but this month was 32 days. I haven't got a clue what my body is doing. I know some people have been trying for years as opposed to a month...
I think I'll get an OPK this time as I wasn't really charting in cycle 1. When do you think you'll ovulate? My app on the phone says it might be between 9-14 August.
Good luck to you and all the other girls! Hope August will be our month

I don't know what my body is doing either! CD1 for me today, and my phone app says my peak fertility days will be between 10th and 15th so roughly the same time as you!
I used cheap ebay ovulation tests this month but want to try the clear blue digital ones as the seem to be quite popular on threads on here. I have also started taking Seven Seas trying for a baby vitamins, which have also been highly praised.
Fingers crossed this is the month for us all!

all I'm taking is folic acid that's all I've been taking since my bfp in april I've heard that you have a "better" chance of a healthier pregnancy if you take them 12 weeks before concieving.. Hoping that's right! Not going to stop taking them either fingers crossed I'll give anything a try. I may join you with the clear blue digital next month if that nasty witch arrives

are you guys still around? I thought I'd check in with you since it's been a month! I'm in my tww phase at the moment, CD39! I think I'm 8dpo today, have tested twice but got bfn so far! I feel really bloated, I look a few months pregnant haha! Some days I feel tired but no major symptoms... I started taking vitabiotics' pregnacare conception and used opks this cycle.
Hope to hear from you both soon :) x

Hi MrsGemini I am still around! We have put ttc on hold a little as we completed on our house at the start of the month and its a complete removation project, great timing eh!
we are hoping to be in (and out of my parents house!) by the end of the month/early October so i think we will be back to TTC once we are back in our own space! now we have the space flr babies I think we are just going to take it as it comes for a while and only really track and chart ov if things don't happen naturally after a few months.
have you tested again since your post? Keeping my fingers crossed for a bfp for you soon!

Congratulations on your new house! How exciting. October is only round the corner. You'll be back on it before you know it :).
I tested again yesterday at 11dpo, still bfn so I'm gonna leave it until I get the urge to test again (which won't be too long hehe).
Good luck with the house x
