Hi Amylou4444, just saw your post and didn't want to read and run, I'm on here a lot and know there is a thread full of lovely ladies who are TTC their first after coming off cerazette.
Hope this helps! Sending lots of baby dust your way. x

Hi Amylou, i'm ttc my first too Came of the pill in December, had a period 6 weeks later (felt like a looong wait!) and now i'm about 5 days away from being due my second period....so near the end of my first proper cycle of trying.
I don't think its happened this month because the past 6 days i've had like very light pink spotting but only in the morning...i'm thinking its the hormones still settling down.
Its really nice to talk to other people as I figure this all out. No one knows we're trying so sometimes feel a bit mad! x

Thanks Babyarama, I was in that group I think but then lost it and couldn't find it again! Haha xx
hi joyrou, yea definitely good to chat to others. Sounds like you're a week or two ahead of me! Well fingers crossed for you.. Its weird that after 6 days spotting is not full AF though isn't it?? So maybe you'll get a BFP???
13/02/2015 at 18:42
So weird, and I do wonder if I might have a chance only because this is really unusual for me - I was only on the pill 18 months and before that when I was off it I never had any spotting that I remember. Also its so pale and unlike proper red spotting. But only time will tell, been googling like crazy but obviously doesn't give a clear answer for me specifically lol!
So you must be gearing up for the big ovulation week?! Are you doing any ovulation tests or just going for it?
13/02/2015 at 21:07
I think that would of been this week. Not doing any ovulation test just going to go for it and see what happens. I'm on cd15 so two weeks until next period is due but been having pains like period pains so don't know if I may start AF early..
Are you going to test or just wait and see if AF arrives?? xx
14/02/2015 at 11:17
I'm dying to test but think that I'll be more disappointed to see a negative....Might wait till if AF is late and then test.
I get ovulation pains, that could be what you're having? x
14/02/2015 at 11:26
Yea could be.. When it's been so long since you had regular periods, you forget what it all feels like.
woken up with a urine infection today so straight on the antibiotics!
when is AF due Joy?!? xx
14/02/2015 at 11:44
Wednesday! Not long now! My spotting has stopped too, hoping its a good sign.
I know what you mean about regular periods, also when we weren't trying I didn't pay too much attention to them!
Sorry about your urine infection, what a pain x
14/02/2015 at 12:03
Not long at all, fingers crossed for you!
Yea they are horrible, I suffer from them quite a lot so thinking of asking GP for a referral, tend to get them every month or so and it's a nightmare, I always have spare antibiotics though so i can start treatment straight away.
which contraceptive pill were you previously on and how long were you on it for?? xx

I was on Gedarel for 18months. Everyone said it was easy to get pregnant when you first stop it but obviously didnt happen for me! X
14/02/2015 at 21:30
Well you don't know that yet.. Stay positive!
16/02/2015 at 11:04
Got a bfp this morning! Going to retest in the morning as af isn't due till Wednesday, but its there x
16/02/2015 at 12:47
Aww amazing news and so soon!! Big congratulations
i am now on 2ww so its a waiting game for me xx
16/02/2015 at 13:13
No, he's at work and I want to tell him in person!
It hasn't sunk in yet I don't think, I feel very all over the place
Fingers crossed for you in the tww xx
16/02/2015 at 17:24
How exciting!! yea I bet it takes a while to sink in properly.
I've still got this uti- had awful pains in my left ovary area today, couldn't even touch that area as felt all inflamed on Saturday.. doesn't hurt to touch now but still getting pains in that area, had them for about 6 days now, almost feels like I may have an AF so not sure if I may have it early? But pain is just on one side and comes on and off, I'm past my ovulation day so can't be that..
also headache for the last two days and feeling sick ( I think due to antibiotics ) so not a good day for me
16/02/2015 at 17:28
Oh that doesn't sound like you've had a good day! You need some tea and rubbish reply under a duvet! Hope tomorrow is better x
16/02/2015 at 17:41
yep and some chocolate I think
Hopefully these pains will be gone tomorrow. Nope a rubbish day for me but excited for you and bet you can't wait to tell OH.
how old are you if you don't mind me asking? xx
17/02/2015 at 09:18
He was so shocked! He kept walking around and asking to look at the test again!
I'm 30, 31 in June and my OH is 33
Are you feeling any better today? Xx
17/02/2015 at 09:54
Haha bless him! Bet he couldn't quite believe it.. when will you start telling people the good news?
I am 25 (26 in May) and OH is 38 so a bit of a gap. Yes thank you, I'm feeling a lot better this morning, felt awful last night and felt very sick but woke up feeling good today
