Hello everyone, This is a new continuation thread for the How long after stopping Cerazette did your period return, Part 4 thread, as the last part of the thread has become huge and now has so many pages, it's getting a bit hard to load. We've posted a link to this new thread on the old thread, so hopefully everyone will be able to find it easily enough. Wishing you all BFP's soon and so much baby dust!

Thanks Danielle. Let's hope it's a lucky one for us all!

Thanks Danielle - here's to the new thread girls!
boo to a bfn loubylou. still very early days. Keeping everything crossed for you x
ah ely thanks for that. Might have to give that a go next month (although hopefully won't have to :)!! ). Heard it's not good to have it in the tww though..

Hi everyone, hope you're all well :)
Sio, glad to hear the dress sizing was fun! I miss all my wedding prep, weirdly enough - we had such a good time, and it was a lovely day when it finally got there. Hoping we survive to celebrate our wedding anniversary this year!
Rach, sounds like you're ready now :) The best advice I could give is to go with the flow once you're having baby - I was all about only having gas and air, natural as possible and it pretty much went out the window, ending up with me screaming 'give me the pen, where do I sign' for consent to have a c section lol! I'm sure you'll do much better than I did xx
Ely, I gave up on OPK's and just temped and tried to be more self aware as to what my body was doing (like I had never noticed before we were trying for a baby that I have ovulation spotting and pains). Temping was my best clue really, and the month I got a positive was the first month I had been properly following my temps. As the ladies have said, if you do go for a Fahrenheit thermometer and two decimal places. The app Fertility Friend is great and the free version is perfectly adequate.
Hi to everyone else too :)
I'm gearing up myself for the next round of 'tests' and proving I am a fit parent. I really do wish I was on here and joining in the opk and hpt discussions like a fanatic. There's starting to be a little hope (we think) - maybe at some point I'll be able to say we are trying for another. All my friends back in the UK seem to be having babies at the moment and it's heart breaking watching it all going on around us and not being able to be a 'normal' family. In the meantime our little girl is doing amazing, she's nearly walking and is a right little character. Definitely the little monster that keeps us going every day.

It's Wednesday loubylou and dinky :) fingers, toes, arms and legs all crossed for you girls xxxxxx
24/02/2016 at 06:41
Poppy that sounds promising. I still can't believe what your family have gone through or why they can have the power to do something so mean... You're a real fighter x
24/02/2016 at 07:24
Poppy good luck with the next round of tests. Fingers crossed all goes well and u will be joining us with opks and temping soon!
Well out of the blue I've got sore boobs and crazy tiredness!! Hopefully it's a good sign that the witch is arriving properly today :)!! Looby hope u get ur bfp and I'll take ur af too! Need all the help I can get haha!
24/02/2016 at 09:05
sore boobs and crazy tiredness dinky!!! you don't think it could be anything else and that the slight bleeding was implantation??
Loobylou not out until AF arrives. remember new thread brings bfps.
Poppy I'm still always shocked at how you are treated and don't understand how they can be doing this to you. Hope you are ok.
Beu I think I heard something also about not taking epo during tww.
24/02/2016 at 09:30
Thanks poppy, all getting exciting now :-). I think i have a good pain threshold we will soon find out if i do haha.
Fx all works out for you poppy and you can be a family again very soon!! Awwww your lil girl sounds brilliant.
Dinky are you sure its af?
24/02/2016 at 19:34
Dinky I'd prefer it if we both got Bfp instead of af! Could the new symptoms be anything more exciting than af do you think? I do hope so. No news from me - if af doesn't pop up I might test again tomorrow. Thanks for all the finger crossing. Let's hope it works!
poppy keeping everything crossed for you for these new round of tests. I don't know how you keep so strong. If I had a hat I'd be taking it off to you!
24/02/2016 at 21:22
Af is here for me and pretty bad cramps this time!! Actually happy about cramp (although it's wearing thin pretty quick haha!)
Fingers crossed looby :)!!
25/02/2016 at 06:50
Oh no dinky, sorry to hear af arrived :( seeing as she has, in glad it's heavier than the last for you. Maybe that piece of mind is just what you need.
How are you doing loubylou?
rach I have a high pain threshold too. Let's hope it covers labor too!
7dpo (I think) today. Not really any symptoms. Can't remember symptoms when I got bfp...have been a bit sickly since 1dpo a but of heartburn and had a dizzy/headachey moment on 3dpo. But nowt to get really excited about.
Hope you're keeping "busy" Sio? ;)
25/02/2016 at 07:38
Yay for a new thread! Fx for everyone still waiting to test...Loobylou I hope af doesn't come!!
my af due 1st March but am working away until 2nd so if it holds off ill test when back...not much bd this month though so not holding my breath!!
25/02/2016 at 07:46
Aw dinky sorry af has arrived but like beu said now she's here I hope it's a 'proper' one!
beu ive got no symptoms at all either - not even the ones I usually get - but signs of ov were so clear this month (ov pains, ov spotting, ewcm and huge temp rise all coincided) I don't think there's any doubt I did ov. I guess it's just different every month coz our bodies like to keep us on our toes!
I'm still in limbo. Another bfn this morning but no af either. Oh well will just have to wait and see what happens.
Millp it only takes one little swimmer....!
25/02/2016 at 07:47
Thanks Beu. Definitely a more normal af so feel better that hopefully my hormones are finally settling after the mc. I read somewhere that it can take as long as how far u were along to get a period after mc n just realised its been 10 weeks since mc n I was 10 weeks when I lost. Weird eh? Probably a coincidence tho!
Ooo first day of fertile window today sio? Have fun!
MillP fingers crossed for u, it's only takes one :)
25/02/2016 at 08:04
How bizarre loubylou...as long as af doesn't arrive you're in with a shout! I got my bfp 1 day before af was due but I've read lots that you may not get a positive until 4/5 days after af was due.
My af would be due on 1st too millp. Fx she doesn't visit either of us Hun x
25/02/2016 at 10:16
well start of the fertile week and we are staying at OH parents tonight. so no funny business there hahahah. ah well its nearly the weekend so I know what we will be doing.
dinky sorry af has arrived but glad its heavier for you. Now for the bad news, I found for me, after the mc for a good few months the cramps were horrendeous. I thought they were getting worse each month. have eased up a good bit now. It could be different for you girls, its just how I found it.
I think I got my af 5 weeks after mc. yet I had the d&c at 11 weeks, though they did say they reckon the baby stopped growing at 7 weeks.
Loobylou, still not out. I have heard of people getting bfn and then a couple of days later bfps. and Millp it really does only take one.
beu, I am getting excited for you. dizzy moments are good.... but please don't test early lol
25/02/2016 at 11:21
Glad a normal af has arrived for you Dinky at least you know now your body is back on track and hopefully next month it will be a bfp!!
Keeping my fx for you loobylou not out until she shows.
Fx for you beu that this is your month!!
Haha sio hope you have lots of fun this weekend ;-)
25/02/2016 at 12:00
Aww not good timing sio! But I would say first day of fertile week is fine to miss. Just make up for it at the weekend haha ;)
I think that's us not ttc for a few months now. Weve booked our summer hol with the insurance money we got back and hubby has said he doesn't want to risk going away if I was pregnant in case I was to mc again. He's normally the optimistic one of the 2 of us! But one cycle would mean I would be 10 weeks while abroad which I have to agree I wouldnt want to be away for just in case. Think we'll have a sit down and talk about it properly at the weekend. We knew it would be an issue when we booked the hol but went ahead with it anyway because we both really need it after what the mc put us through.
Beu hide the tests haha!
25/02/2016 at 12:34
Thanks ladies :) Round 26 or whatever were up to now is done lol. More next week! Got a heap of forms to fill in for them to prove I'm not a crazy woman. hmmm.
