Hello my lovely :) I'm not quite out for this month yet.. CD23/28 But just read your story and really wanted to reach out. I am so sorry to hear about your mc. I miscarried myself in March 2017 and me and my SO have only just started trying again since September 2018 so know to a degree what you're going through. Hopefully we can muddle through this journey together as it can feel quite lonely at times!!

I am so sorry about your MC. This must be so hard :(
I am TTC baby number 2 and AF started yesterday so I am more than happy to start this February journey!
Happy to chat whenever if you need me

Hi Rhirhix thank you for taking the time that’s really nice. It’s awful really is, my EPU are amazing and gave me a memory box today tbh I don’t know If I should have looked or not today as it’s just really upset me more. I’ve gathered all scans and notes etc and going to get a little box to keep it all in. Couldnt possibly just put in bin. I’m really sorry for your lose it’s awful that we have to go through these things really is.
I will keep you in my thoughts as you aren’t out quite yet :) and maybe this is your special month. Feel free to keep chatting though as the journey is def easier with woman around and outsiders of family and friends makes it a bit easier. Xxx

Livie, that would be a cute age gap.. my girls are 2.5 years apart and it’s a nice gap. Your still kinda in the baby mode so not a shock to the system.
I def found baby number two much easier than baby number 1... not sure if that’s because your a bit more relaxed and don’t have the time to worry about everything.
The clear blue kit that gives 4 days fertile window is really good...it has 20 tests in it and Tells u 4 days that u are most fertile we DTD on two of those days and we fell Preg... I honestly thought would taken months as I have one tube but it just shows. We jumped straight to using them first month because we thought it would take ages.
Worrying this time it could take ages to get cycle back to normal.
Im going to buy a kit this month more to just see what’s going on With my cycle so that if this month is a wash out then at least I have a starting point.
Fingers crossed we get lucky xxx

Hey sorry for my late reply I've had a hectic day at work (in which my daughter comes with and causes utter mayhem) 😂
Yeah I think it would be a great age gap!
Have you ever tried the cheap ovulation strips? A shop near me sells a 5 pack for a like a quid 😂😂
Yeah you just need to take this month as it comes no pressure and see what your body does. Like you said then you have a starting point. How are you feeling XX
22/01/2019 at 22:06
yeah I feel like bit of stalker just now but I have too much free time and not used to it tbh....too much head space isn’t always good is it especially us girls we over think.
awww bless your wee one is at such a busy age isby she :)
yeah so actually I had this conversation with EPU this week as I’ve to use pregnancy tests to check I get a negative and I asked about the really cheap ones I seen a 15 pack on amazon for £2 something and she said that the cheap ovulation strips and preg tests are just as good they just have none of the fancy smiley faces or packaging etc but did say if using them it would be better to wee in a glass rather than mid stream... so that the test gets a good level to work with... sorry tmi.
I feel like this month will be lucky for you :)
I was really needing a wee friend and hope someone gives you a little gift for helping me out xx

Good morning, how are you today?
That's good about the cheaper ovulation strips thank you! Oh I really hope so! I'm nervous though!
Seriously I'm here to chat to whenever! Off work now till Monday so message away 😂 as long as your coping ok? I've been cleaning all morning but I feel really good for getting it done!
My AF is due to finish tomorrow, yay! So can start tracking!
24/01/2019 at 12:03
ive been “hinching“ all morning too :)
felt like needed to give the place a really good deep clean, all beds, towels toys etc sounds silly but when house is nice clean I feel like I can relax and my mind is in better place..
i work from home for my husband so I can pick my own diary to a certain level so I’m really lucky.
Just about to tackle the mountain of ironing then I’m done, every mum knows the feeling of empty wash baskets and empty ironing baskets haaaaaa how sad isnt it.
i feel sad but I feel like I want to try again and that’s what’s keeping me moving tbh.... still bleeding but barely anything now so I’m hoping that means it’s tailing off. Bought some ovulation tests too.... however took Preg test this morning and still positive.... so frustrating.
would you like a little boy this time round or are u just delighted to have a happy healthy little bundle? Xx

Hi all, hope you don’t mind me joining the TTC train. I’m on 4th month of ttc (currently in 2WW) after a MMC at 10 weeks last june 2018. We already have a wonderful 23 month old boy. Sorry to hear of your losses. It’s so hard to move on and stay positive. Its nice to have people to reach out to and chat though instead of boring my husband every day with “when do you think we will have another?”. I’d love another one ASAP and worry about my age and also reason for mc which I know was probably nothing. I’m just 35. X
24/01/2019 at 13:09
yeaaaah we have a new recruit :)
theres only really the two of us at the moment but we all sound really similar curcumtances.
im really sorry about your lose... I had mmc just last Friday never had one before and I’m going from struggling, angry then need to be pregnant. I guess it’s hormones.
can I ask have u been actively using ovulation kits etc or are u just taking it month to month see what happens?
24/01/2019 at 14:25
Hey ladies... can I jump onboard too 😀
i am TTC baby number one. Four years of unsucessful trying with my ex.
been Ing my other half a year now and we sadly had an unplanned twin pregnancy in July last year. (Massive shock!) but we were over the moon. Sadly miscarried in sept last year.
Now we are on month four tww after I had my procedure late sept (MVA) to remove the remaining pregnancy tissues.
I am so desperate to conceive again... seems odds are stacked against me. I’ve tested with both OPK and basal temp... I’m definitely ovulating - but still nothing.
im not out yet this month... but I’m also not very hopeful.
So sorry to hear of all your loses. But also happy to hear some of you have little ones already, and they will soon be joined by BFPs. ❤️
24/01/2019 at 15:10
so glad some ladies have come forward :)
sorry to hear about your lose it’s awful isn’t it....
are u using ovulation kits or temping? Xxx
24/01/2019 at 15:30
February is officially going to be our first month trying for baby number 1 this year. My period is irregular so hard to find my ov window and when iv tried ov sticks, i just get so dissapointed when i get a negative :(
Any tips? Xxx
24/01/2019 at 18:48
Aww this is so nice that people are joining!!
Baby number 3- that's amazing you work from home! I'd love that! My washing bsxjet is always full 😂
Wiggly- so sorry for your loss :( I'm on month 5 TTC let's hope this is all our months :) what cd are you XX
TTC & Sophie welcome! Hope you have a lucky month :) are You tracking ? I've never used ovulation tests before I'm going to try first time this month! With my first I just tested once a month until I found out and it was the 5th month that I conceived ! I can't believe I only tested once a month !this time round I'm testing like 2 weeks solid 😂😂😂 every month
24/01/2019 at 19:04
can i join?
just had our results today for my bloods and partners semen analysis - all come back normal. Dr now saying another 6 months till we can get any more help/a referral. So broken and gutted xx
24/01/2019 at 20:45
Awww girls so glad we have a wee girl gang developing :)
welcome Amnx, I’m really sorry your not getting answered, I’ve not followed your story sorry to ask questions that might be difficult... feel free to tell me to F off. Have you been TTc for some time? I don’t want to say this beginning statement as I hate when ppl say to me “at least” in my case all I get is “at least u the girls” but in your case I guess “at least“ your results were normal and looks like physically theres nothing stopping u conceiving... easy for me to say I fully get that. Have u been charting?
welcome Sophie how exciting trying for baby number one :) if your irregular maybe keep a diary starting now of changes u notice with cm and temperature and or ovulation tests whatever works for u but it’s def Good looking at it on paper and noticing theres maybe more of a pattern than u think. Xx
24/01/2019 at 20:55
weve been trying for 13 months now. No im not sure how to chart, i tried ovu sticks but its hard to keep up with it at work. So just going off my flo app really xx
