Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I thought I would start a new thread as I couldn't really see one similar that was still active. When I first started TTC I used to post on a similar thread to this but I think most of those ladies are now pregnant so thought it would be nice to start a new one.
I'm 27 (nearly 28), oh is 27 and we are TTC our first. We've been married for almost three years. I was on the pill for about 12 years so hoping that won't make things too difficult.
I stopped taking the pill (microgynon) in august last year and started TTC. I had veeerrry long cycles at first, which are starting to shorten now (but still quite long). In November we had to stop ttc, due to change of job and location but have just started again, now that oh and I are settled in our new jobs.
We Bd'd on 14/5 and then I think I ovulated on 15/5, so I'm now on 7dpo today. I'm now driving myself crazy wondering if by some miracle we've caught on our first re-attempt!! I have mega sore BBS (which I usually get before AF but not until around 9 dpo), a bit of stomach cramping, had the weirdest dreams last night and have just started getting some creamy cm (I normally get no cm between ov and AF) .
What does anyone else think? I think I'm going to test in the morning.
Please feel free to write a bit about yourselves and your situation so we can all share symptoms, go through the 2ww etc together and just generally chat

Hi Mrs U
I'm 33 and my husband is 42 (married for 9 yrs) and we are TTC no 3! I have 2 boys aged 2 and 6.
Have been TTC since september 2013, since stopping the pill in August.
Currently mid cycle - my husband thinks its xmas with all the extra attention he is having in bed at the mo!
Good luck and update us if you test.
Your mind plays tricks on you when you are in 2WW - every time i think i was pregnant did a test (neg) and then AF showed next day. Makes you feel stupid that you have wasted a test.

Oh so we stopped taking the pill at the same time. Have your cycles gone back to normal? Mine are still around 40 days .
Yes, this week has gone INCREDIBLY slowly... I am only testing tomorrow as I am away this weekend so don't want to drink if I'm pg. I don't have any glaringly obvious symptoms but just a few strange things!! I so hope I am pg but just don't think I'd be that lucky to fall on the first attempt at TTC again.

Nice to meet you.
my cycles seem to be around 28 days.
Have been using cheapie OPK from internet but don't think i have been using them properly or at the right time so I haven't been using them for the past couple of months.
My first son was conceived by surprise and did not realise i was pregnant ustil the xmas turkey cooking in the oven made me feel ill (love the smell usually) so took a test to prove mys husband i ws no pg - and got the shock of my life.
I suffered a MC in August 2010 very early as i did not know i was pregnant ( i sound really thick don't I?!) then I got pregnant again with my son in Oct 2010.
has anyone used cheapie OPK and can offer some advice?
Have been taking sanatogen mum to be vits aswell.

Hi bec, I have never had implantation bleeding (as have never been pg!!) but have thought I have a few times. From what I've read it varies so much from person to person. I think in most it is just pinky-brown spotting but for some it can be heavier. Also, pregnancy symptoms can be very similar to the build up to your period, so it really could be either! Has anything happened since you posted? Do you chart your temperatures because that would help give an indication...I find it really helpful. It does sound strange though...I guess it might have been an early miscarriage but could it be a late period instead? Are your cycles usually quite regular?
Teacup - I hope you have more luck this month with your timings and manage to fit bd'ing in at the right time. What say of your cycle are you on?
I am on cd3 today, AF started earlier than expected on Sunday, confirming my bfn from Friday. I have started taking agnus castus again, following Ang's success with it...hopefully that'll bring my ovulation forward a couple of weeks and sort out my cycles.
How's everyone else? Baby blue wolf? Babiseren?

sorry to see af has arrived Mrs U xx
I am currently on CD 21 period due 4 june.
No symptoms whatsoever - tempted to buy more OPK so i can start tracking.
Thanks AngWass for advicexx
Any news babyblue wolf?
How is everyone else?

Hey I was due af sunday so tested tuesday with a cheap dollarstore one and it was negative (hehe trying to justify the BFN in hope lol) but add still not here yet and all symptoms so putting it down to stressing about wanting a BFP that af still not here ...
Hows everyone else? Also is anyone else obsessed with watching pregnancy shows films lol ... trying to add more baby dust to myself haha xx

Babiseren - have you had any symptoms yet?
Babybluewolf - has AF arrived or are you still waiting? Have you tested again?
Teacup - we are similar this month as I am on cd9 today. I'm taking agnus castus this month so will hopefully ovulate a bit earlier than normal but have realised it was a silly time to start taking it again as dh is away for a few days around the time I think I will ov, so I've pretty much already counted myself out this month oh well, bring on July!!!
Hi blueclio - welcome have you tested again since Thursday ? Fc for you.
Bec - how are you? I think I saw on another thread AF had arrived
