Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
18/08/2014 at 06:40
How was everyone's weekend? Ours was really nice. Had a nice chilled time. Watched Thor 2 on Friday with a glass of red wine, and then the Shawshank Redemption on Saturday night. I hadn't seen it before, despite hearing how good it was. Friends came over yesterday for dinner. I made a bit of a mess with it. I managed to cook fewer chicken bits than I needed, so I had to cut one of them in half and share it between me and H. Cannot for the life of me figure out how I made such a stupid mistake!
And on the ttc front. I need brought back down to earth. I'm far too excited about being on the 2ww that I've convinced myself I'm pregnant already. I had promised myself that I wouldn't symptom spot, but since yesterday I've been feeling very bloated and had odd cramps and felt like af is about to start. It is most likely all in my head as today I'm only 6dpo. In my last pregnancy, I got my bfp at 9dpo, which is probably why I'm getting ahead of myself. Talk me down ladies! I'm heading for disappointment and need to get my head out the clouds.

Hi RKB. Shawshank Redemption is one of my favorite films. Miscounting the chicken is an easy enough mistake, I'm sure everyone had a lovely time regardless. It's so hard not to symptom spot and get your hopes up on the 2WW, I really hope you get your BFP.
Well i'm CD31, 12DPO. According to MyDays App AF should have been here on Friday. But that doesn't seem to take into account the fact that I ov'd on CD19. Took a test on Friday at 9DPO, it was a BFN. This is my first cycle using OPKs so i'm not completely sure how long my luteal phase is. So I guess i'm just waiting to see if AF shows up on Wednesday, which would be 14 days after ovulation. I'm not sure if i'm making much sense here, it's actually confusing me quite a bit. Sorry for rambling.
We are trying to sell our house at the moment as we found somewhere to move to, which we really love and our offer was accepted on it. But the vendors estate agent has given us a deadline of getting an offer on our house until 15th September otherwise the new house will go back on the market. Our house has been up for a week tomorrow and so far we have had no viewings. It's really frustrating. I'm just hoping it's because there are a lot of people on holiday at the moment.
Hi to everyone who follows!

RKB - Can't believe you hadn't seen Shawshank - I've probably seen it about a hundred times! What was Thor 2 like? I know what you mean about the symptom spotting - I'm not much better so I don't think I'm the right one to bring you back down to earth! I don't blame you for thinking the same as last time though - I know I'd definitely be doing that too!
MS - Hope the BFN on Friday was just too early - will you test Wednesday if AF isn't here? Sorry to hear about the house struggles - fingers crossed you get some viewings soon!
AFM - Had a wonderful weekend getting more bits done around the house which I'm really happy with - no time to do my blog though! TTC wise - CD24, 10DPO - expecting AF on Thursday.
18/08/2014 at 08:59
MS - Sorry it was a BFN, but it could just be that you've tested too early. Fingers are crossed that AF stays away and you get your BFP! I hope your house sells soon too! Fingers are also crossed for that! :-)
Tayto - I know! Shocking that i hadn't seen it before, but all is well again as i have now! Brilliant film! :-) Thor 2 was ok, but i didn't really think it was as good as the first one. I hope AF stays away for you!
I really need to quit it. AF isn't due until the 27th, so i'm still well over a week to go! :-S H said the nicest thing this morning...which didn't really help me in hoping...he said we'd need to stock up on eggs for when he needs to get up and make me scrambled egg on toast like last time.
18/08/2014 at 09:00
Hi Tayto, I will try to hold out for AF being late on Thursday. But i'm a POAS addict, so can't guarantee anything. Fingers crossed that AF doesn't show up for you on Thursday. x
18/08/2014 at 09:08
RKB - The thing is you've got something to compare it too so I can imagine the symptom spotting is even worse, especially if they are similar symptoms to when you were pregnant, I'm not surprised you are feeling the way you do. Fingers and toes crossed for you :)
MS - Totally what RKB said and again keeping everything crossed for you too :)
Tayto - Well done, another productive weekend for you! Hope AF stays well away and this is your month :)
AFM, had a lovely weekend, went holiday shopping with H, not for me because I've been getting bits in each month, but H is a typical man and leaves everything to the last minute, anyway mission accomplished we got everything he needs, TK Maxx is ace!
On the TTC front I can finally say I start next week!!!! God that feels weird! To think that it was February when we found out we'd had the miscarriage to now, it feels like a year has gone by.
Hi to all who follow!
18/08/2014 at 09:47
How exciting Claire! Not long to go at all now!! :-) It's funny how men leave things to the last minute. My H is terrible for it.
I think you're probably right on the comparing front. It feels very reminiscent of the last time, but probably all in my head. I might be able to do an early test on Thursday, as if i've implanted when i thought i did, there should be something there....as faint as it might be.
18/08/2014 at 09:52
I know, I can't believe how I excited I feel about starting, but ask me again when I'm poised with the needle ready to stab myself ;) He's a bugger, the holiday has been booked since March, and he needed so much stuff, anyway it's done now.
Try and get a first response test because they are the most sensitive ones.
18/08/2014 at 10:06
Since March? That's even worse!!
I'm sure the injections won't be nearly as bad as you think. After i'd had W, i had to inject my tummy every day for about a week for some reason (i was told why, but i forget) It's a bit nippy, but only lasts a second and that's you! :-)
I might go get a FR on Thursday. I have loads of ICs, a boots test and 2 CBDs sitting in a drawer calling my name. I can see me testing tomorrow...even though i know it's pointless. I'm a POAS addict.
18/08/2014 at 10:12
Oh I know, I had to inject with my first cycle of IVF so I know what to expect and I really was ok with it.
Ha! Well if it makes you feel better do it, but if you can wait until Thursday you won't have any second guessing hopefully.
18/08/2014 at 11:05
Well ladies I spoke too soon. AF has just arrived. Feeling very fed up. I'm beginning to think this is going to take a long time and a lot of heartbreak. I get my hopes up every time and then I crash back to reality.
18/08/2014 at 11:16
Sorry AF showed up MS :-(
18/08/2014 at 12:01
It's okay. I'm disappointed. But I've just had a call to say that somebody wants to view our house on Friday and they are a cash buyer. So fingers crossed they like it. I guess that was my silver lining.
18/08/2014 at 12:06
That's great news MS! Fingers are so crossed for you!! :-)
18/08/2014 at 13:14
MS - really sorry about AF. It's all so horrible. But fingers crossed for that viewer.
RKB - how will you feel if you get a BFN tomorrow? I was an early tester but have totally stopped that as I find it too distressing to get the BFN. If you think you will be ok, then go for it. When do you think you implanted? Glad you have seen SR. Incredible film.
CL - very exciting times!! And TK Maxx is amazing. Love it there.
Tayto - glad you had a productive weekend. How are you feeling? Any symptoms?
AFM - very quiet weekend. had a few friends round for a curry on friday, did some baking saturday and then i think H managed to break a toe yesterday from a really bad stubbing. TTC wise. Expecting AF sometime this week. My usual spotting has started and temp took a nose dive this morning so I suspect AF is on her way. We'll see. Not sure I'll cope with it too well if she does come. I think I'd subconsciously convinced myself that going on holidays and relaxing would do the trick. Have made an appointment for acupuncture for Thursday.
18/08/2014 at 13:50
Ouch VeeCee, hope the husband's toe is ok! What did you bake? I wish i could bake...but i just burn everything i try to...the only thing i've had any success with was Carrot Cake. I hope AF stays away for you too.
I think i'd be ok with a bfn, i've always been of the feeling that i want to know either way as soon as i can. This is only our first month trying, so even if we're not successful, it's ok. I think i implanted over the weekend around 4/5dpo. I'm almost certain that when i conceived W, i implanted at 5dpo, which is why i got a bfp at 9dpo the last time. I'd actually had bfps the few days before, but i didn't notice the tests as the line was so light that i just thought they were negative and so threw them in the bin. It was just by chance on 9dpo that i pulled the test back out the bin about 10 minutes after i'd done it. (Complete Rachael from Friends moment)
I had a feeling i was going to be like this, so i bought loads of IC's so that if the notion took me, i could just use them.
And I am sorry in advance for this week if i keep going on about it.
18/08/2014 at 14:08
I made meringues. They were delicious which was very satisfying as it was my first time making them.
As long as you know that 7dpo would be exceptionally early to get a BFP then go for it. Don't apologise. We've all been there :/
18/08/2014 at 14:40
Meringues! Yummy!! I was at ATBs (from Hitched) wedding a couple of weeks ago and they had meringues as part of the desert. I'd quite happily have eaten my weight in them!
7dpo is definitely too early for any conclusive results. I'm going to try to not test tomorrow, but I know i could very well fail miserably...
18/08/2014 at 15:13
Oh god I am such an idiot! I've just twigged who you are after all this time RKB!
18/08/2014 at 15:25
Who I am? Do we know each other in real life Claire? Forgive the glaikit post!
