Aww no beu from the little bits I've read online it doesn't seem to make a difference. Its just mine has literally been spotting and it might just have been coincidence but i had 1 normal-ish af last time (still really light) and then the following month got my bfp. Just me clutching at straws probably!
Well done for holding off looby :) any symptoms?

Hello everyone! We've noticed that this thread is getting super-long, which is wonderful cause you're all chatting, but it also means it's getting harder and harder to load on some devices - and a lot fiddlier to keep up with. So, if it's OK with you all, we're going to create a new thread, called How long after Cerazette did your period return, Part 5 - which should be super-speedy and easy to load - where you can carry on your conversation. We won't delete this thread (as if!); we'll just close it to new posts (so we don't have 2 convos going on at once!) and put up a link to the new thread so everyone knows where to head for. Trust that all sounds OK.

Here we go, new thread bfps will be arriving soon. Loobylou, its going to be you.... bring it on Danielle, we can't break the trend of bfps happening whenever the new thread starts.
beu it only takes one time so maybe that one time is all you need. so have my fx for you.
Dinky fx that your af is heavy for you.
Loobylou I can't believe you held off testing, fair play to you, we all need to follow your advice.
so the fertile week will be starting for me on thurdsay. but at the weekend on sunday I think I had a load of ewcm and then today I had really thick creamy one, sorry for tmi. what the hell is going on? no idea.

Oooh here we go........im super excited :) come on girls, hold on tight, here come the new thread bfp's!!
oh bless you dinky. It's hard not to over analyse everything and clutch at straws. Especially when something so sad happens. You want there to be a good explanation for it. I hope you don't get a heavy af this time, I hope you don't get an af at all, just a big fat positive instead :). The luck of the new thread could rub off on you x
thanks sio. I'm not sure my body plays to the rules with cm either. I think it comes and goes before I ovulate. You know, just to make ttc even trickier ;)

sounds like lots of us are in the 2ww!! Very well done loubylou for waiting!!! 👍🏻
hows everyone else getting on??
I'm not feeling too positive so far- just had some creamy cm which is usually a sure sign that af is on its way so bleh!!!
im thinking of temping this month and planning on getting a thermometer payday! Just wondering if anyone else has done it before and how you've found it?
hoping for some bfp's soon if the new thread luck continues!!!!! Xxx

Sorry for being so quiet on here, feeling a bit deflated at the minute.
Sio wish I was trying on my wedding dress again, its so exciting! That woman's reaction was priceless!
Loobylou! have my fingers and toes super tight for u!
Im on CD17 and doesn't look like I had any pos OPK's, really thought it was the last 2 days as had a bit of cramping in both my left & right pelvic area. Im attaching a pic of all my OPK's from CD8 until now ... can it be possible that they just don't work for me??
23/02/2016 at 14:37
Ely hope you will be ok. I have to say I know feck all about OPKs and what they should look like. They way I approach things just bd when you think you are going to be ovulating, a few days before and a few after. Cramping is a good sign too I think so go by that as well? and how many tests are there lol. are you becoming the beu of ov sticks, when shes the queen of hpts hahah
23/02/2016 at 14:52
haha! it is a serious addiction! Even dh comes home asking how my stick looked today!
It would be nice if they worked just to be able to know this is the time get to it! have been bding every 2nd day anyway but id love a break at this stage!
23/02/2016 at 14:58
Kh3 creamy cm was sign of a bfp for me so don't count urself out yet.
Ely did u do the opks at different times of day? I get a negative on the morning and then a positive on the evening then back to negative the next morning sometimes. Have u had any ewcm? 3rd and 5th from bottom look close to positive?
23/02/2016 at 15:19
the last few days ive been doing about 3 a day Dinky! have watery cm rather than ewcm don't really get ewcm at all. Was going to try EPO next cycle as I heard its supposed to be good for ewcm, anyone ever try it?
23/02/2016 at 15:26
Haha sio, I've got no idea what you're talking about ;) think af would be due on 1st so going to try to wait until then...whose bets on that I don't haha.
Ely I recon 9th from the bottom looks promising too. You've literally got a 4 hour window to catch it so can sometimes be a little off positive. Sounds like you've covered all angles though. Haha know what you mean, by time tww has arrived I'm well up for s rest ;) what's epo?!!
23/02/2016 at 15:27
Kh3, ive not temped as fell pregnant just before i was planning to get one, but i know women on here have found them useful as just another way to see where you are in your month to help to know when you ovulate.
Don't worry about having loads of ewcm i don't think i really remember having any the month i got pregnant even though i was looking out for it, like sio i don't know much about opks either. My best advice is just lots of bding trying every other day, thats what worked for me personally.
I had my 34 week check with midwife today was bit gutted was supposed to be going through my birth plan today but the doctors being really clever had booked 3 women to see the same midwife at 11 and one was the long initial appointment so she did apologies loads to me and said we will have to do it in 2 weeks at my 36 week check, which i thought well if same happens again surely ill be a priority then as need to have something in place before im 37 weeks. Today she just did all my general health checks all is good bump getting bigger i am now just below the top line so potentially big baby or a lot of water, it is mad i have put on weight nowhere but bump. She did have a quick feel for babies position and baby is definitely head down she gave there head a lil wiggle which was a strange feeling so glad they are in the right position just gutted couldn't have longer.

Thanks Dinky!! maybe im not as out as I thought then!! Xx
ely- I'm also not much help with opks- I used the clearblue ones for a bit and never got a positive yet have a dd1 (after 14 months ttc)so I was ovulating at some point along the way!!!!! Xx
And thanks rach. I've seen a cheap thermometer so I think I'll try it next month just to see if I can see a pattern emerge!
and in regard to your appt- any thoughts on the type of birth you would like? Xx
23/02/2016 at 16:25
Fx you won't need to and you get your bfp :-)
Im low risk and at my hospital they have a midwifery unit just round the corner from the high risk section, so ill be in the midwifery sections were they have everything birthing pools bean bag chairs, birthing balls, at first time don't know too much what to expect but i have said as natural as possible with gas and air, but will have pethidine if i start to struggle with the pain, really want to avoid an epidural. I really can't wait for it all to start just can't wait for that first hold i will want those first few moment to last for ages. x
23/02/2016 at 17:12
beu- EPO is evening primrose oil, heard it helps a lot with cm!
Rach that sounds fantastic, they have great facilities over there, don't think we have anything but the norm! X
23/02/2016 at 18:14
it wont be long for you rach!!! Then you will have all the cuddles you want!!!
ely- I've heard epo is supposed to help as well. Xx

Hi I didn't hold off completely - bfn this morning. Booooo! Maybe it's keeping a low profile till the new thread opens! Fx!
kh3 I temp - if you get a thermometer go for one that reads to 2 decimal places and preferably Fahrenheit as more precise. You can get them dead cheap off amazon
