Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Yeah, it will be ok to test at 1:30 hun. I don't think an hour will make a big difference. I used to test in the evening (5-6pm) when i used CB Digitals. This month I will use up my cheepies so will test twice a day - lunch time-ish and around 6-ish when I get back from work.
Good Luck lovely lady

Morning girlies so lovely to read all of your messages, we've got a huge support network going here, amazing to feel so connected when we've never met. Woke up this morning at 5am when dh's alarm went off for work and had to run to the loo to wee! That never ever happens. Had time to grab my last pee stick on the way though
Evemum - I didnt get to do my cbd went to the shop yesterday and they were out of stock, and the nearest chemist only sells the blue dye ones. I'll see if I can get one today. Yaaay for ovulation! I think im going to create the 'soundtrack to conception' which will consist of Queen's 'I want to break free' for the eggos and 'just keep swimming' from Finding Nemo for the spermlings it'll be a masterpiece! Xxx
WooH - cmbffs!! Haha!! I love it bless him, sounds like you've got a good one there sooo pleased you're feeling happier, a sad WooH is hardly WooH at all your doctor sounds great! the last thing you need when ttc is to be kept waiting around for even longer. I hope your appointment goes well and hqve my fingers crossed for you xxx
Jay - I lnow what you mean, I feel the same! Its a bit surreal actually.
Levi - praying this month is your month so there'll be no need for you to go through ivf. Thinking of you xxx
Judy - im not too bad sweetheart same old really, boulders for boobs and zapped of all energy. Feel guilty because im not as energetic with dd as usual. Im sure she doesnt mind really. Will get myself to the docs on monday, then probably have to wait weeks for my first mw appointment (the boring one too -.-) hope you're ok xxx
Ang - I dont think the timing matters toooo much, an hour shouldn't make much difference. I never used them myself but I can imagine unless its a lightening fast surge it will pick it up even with it being an hour later. Xxx

Hi angela , they're not silly questions hun , I was full of the questions when I first arrived here, still am tbh great to have all of you to glean tips from n just to have a rant to when the need arises , I used 2 opks last month as my cycles have also been a little messed up since mmc in March , 1st at 2pm n then again between 5 n 6 , found that covered it , but this month I had the tell tale ov pain - was only cd 6 but tested at 6pm n sure enough there were 2 lines pretty much instantly (have taken agnus castus so not sure if that bought it forward ?) , really struggled with them at 1st , then realised the 1's I used had to be allowed to come to room temp(approx 20 mins ) before testing , n had to limit drink/wee for at least 2 hours before, the longer the better really, hope this helps hun , good luck x x
Hey levi , you've done a great job taking over from rosapenny , used to read her posts too , wonder how she is doing ? it is one of the busiest threads on here for sure n as I said before there are some great girls on here n I'm proud to be part of it , wow , things are starting to get moving then - exciting yet scary at the same time , moving forward though n that's what we want , hope you're coping with it ok , cant believe was so early , hope we caught it this time , only dtd once the day before but as you said with katie jay n amy it is all down to luck at the end of the day, bet your dh will be glad to strike when the mood takes him this month hope af buggers off soon my lovely x x x
Hiya wooH , my dh is the same , think he thinks it's great I have you girls to talk to , saves him from hearing all about cm etc, he's pretty good with all the lingo ha , had a lok at ovufriend n like it but will do both for abit I think , has made a few things clearer to me though , wonder how long it's been going for , it looks quite new ,, hope you have a fab wkn n af is gone soon x x

You're planning to test the same times as I ended up doing. Didn't work for me but that's more to do with my crappy repro system rather than the timings Just try not to drink too much in between, as it can apparently dilute the hormone or something....not that you'll want to drink if you've been holding your pee for so long, lol xxx
Right, everyone, I've been doing some detective work. Can I have some advice, ideas, anything? I came off my pill in late Feb and started from early April. I got my first bleed for more than a day or 2 on 16th May. I've had 7 bleeds since then. The gaps between finishing one bleed and starting another have been 13, 8, 11, 11, 15 (the cycle I def ov'd) and 14. A little variation but not huge.
But what is weird is this: the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th bleeds have all been lighter ones, and I recorded them at the time as "light af/spotting???" I write down how much sanitary stuff I use on the day and these ones are all crazy light use, like not 'filling' a tampon/liner. The 2nd, 4th and 6th bleeds have been much heavier in comparison. The 6th was the worst by far (the one after I def ov'd).
So, as it stands, my cycles are super short from bleed to bleed (without ov, which is poop, so don't be getting jealous ), 15, 17, 16, 19, 19..... But looking at my cycles from 'proper bleed' to proper, they would be 32, 35, and so far 23.... Are these lesser bleeds mid-cycle spotting?? If they are, they last a long time and something can't be right If they are 'proper' af's, why is one lighter and one heavier, always alternately?? Good to see there's something reasonably regular about my cycles, but I don't understand it! Any ideas? xxx

Oh thanks for the replies ladies
I am thinking of looking in to this AC thing as I've heard a lot of people talking about it! Well I have been holding my wee for like 4 hours but when I am at work I only drink water so I have had 1 full glass so far today...what do you mean by limit liquid? Am I still ok to drink small amounts just not glass after glass?
Wow congratulations Amy...definitely no denying you are pregnant...I love saying those 2 lines on tests!!
Hopefully won't be long before there is a lot more on this thread
It's funny because on another thread a few of us were saying how we hated seeing pregnant women etc but when we get good news on here of someone getting a BFP I feel soooo happy for you....get all excited for the lady with the BFP haha
Lots of love and baby dust to you all xx

Thanks Judy...you are right I am ready for another wee and it's only been 2.5 hours and I've only drank half a glass haha!
Sorry to hear she has returned...don't think your body knows what it wants to do this month That's a reason i've stayed away from CB just because of the price so will see how I get on with the cheapie ones x
31/08/2013 at 13:04
evemum - happy you think you dtd in time. It can be hard to stay positive sometimes. This could be your month though hun, you never know
It is a little amazing how so many of our cycles have come close together.
When are you ladies thinking you'll ov. Eve I know you have or will very soon. Me? I have probably at least a week to wait...wait...all I do is wait it seems
31/08/2013 at 13:15
Just seen your pics, Amy. They're so awesome
31/08/2013 at 13:18
hey wooh - wondering if you'd mind helping me - where is the "Transfer" button you're reffering to in Ovufriend, I want to check it out
31/08/2013 at 13:30
nm, found it wooh lol
31/08/2013 at 14:13
Ok, cool! It's obviously very new (like for example, the galleries aren't fully up and running) but the workability of it is pretty good. Only problem is when you publish a chart, so like mine on the link at the bottom here, you can't see previous ones, only the one you're on, which is a shame. xx
31/08/2013 at 14:36
I haven't played around with it too much....dh says I have too much time on my hands. Quite possibly true, just trying to cover my bases, do what I can to get a bfp
31/08/2013 at 14:47
I'm exactly the same. Just want that bfp and a baby of mine&dh's own Petrified of mc and everything but just want to do what I can! xx

So I'm back - just got back from Manchester. Been out all day, we had so much to talk about with my friend we didn't realised it started getting dark. And then I sat next to this smelly lady with 5 not very well behaved kids on the train . . . .boooo
Hey Sarah, just tell dh that there will be no 'action' if he's not home on time ha ha
The spa thing is goo, we will not be getting any treatments thou. We will only get to use the pool, jacuzzi, sauna, etc - that is all I want really because it gives us a chance to chill together and enjoy each others compay I bought it off kgb deals for £9 (per couple) and we should also get a pastry (yum ha ha) and a drink
I transferred to ovufriend and it said that last cycle I ovulated 2 days earlier - not that it matters cos didn't get preg anyway. Still feeling positive thou
How are we all today?
I saw this gorgeous guy on the train ha ha and he smiled at me felt like a teenager again ha ha

Hi All, I am new to the website. Im 32 and my OH is 37. We've been together 12 years now. I came of logynon in January 2013 but only started trying this month. My cycles came back right away however lately they have become longer is this normal? Can anyone advise the best pregnancy tests to get too as there is so many around and they are so expensive.
