We really need some more ladies on here!
Anyone lurking?! Come and say hello we don't bite :) and got some lovely ladies on here :)!

Yea, come on out!

Haven't been on for quite some time, moved house and changed jobs. Kind of tried to just go with the flow which has worked until this week! Spotting which never happens but then I am not sure if it's too heavy for 'spotting' and have had positive ovulation sticks on both cheap internet sticks and my clearblue monitor one.
Decided to come look again to see if anyone else has experienced similar, oh and I am on CD27 on cycle 9 of TTC.
How is everyone else?

Have you tested?
Might be worth a test for implantation bleeding :) fingers crossed

Hello Mrs-T- nice to 'see' you back here. Fingers crossed for you!!
24/01/2015 at 17:34
Thanks girls, tested this morning and nothing so expect it to arrive tomorrow as it hasn't yet arrived today. I would expect something to have shown by now if I was pregnant so not holding much hope tbh.
My days app tells me I am due today where as Ovia and Pink Pad say tomorrow and I have used all three since May last year, kind of feel pretty stupid for getting my hopes up tbh.
if it arrives I am considering just stopping and looking at adoption or fostering, it is something we both like the idea of but wanted to try first.

Try not to feel stupid for getting your hopes up - lots of the girls on here have taught me that - if you don't have hope, you have nothing....
Bear in mind that it takes the average couple a year to get pregnant so you're still within that. Why would you go straight to adoption/fostering? Would you not ask to be referred to a fertility clinic first? There's lots of small reasons as to why we don't get pregnant so the solutions can be quick and simple.
I hope I haven't butted my nose in where it's not wanted but TTC is really difficult and the 2WW is just horrible; come on here & rant and that will help some bit xx

Hello! I posted frequently-ish on H but since going back to work have been rubbish about coming on here. Will need to change that! First month of TTC, ovulating today and H is away for the night and we have visitors tomorrow, grr!
Mrs-T - I work in a fertility clinic and it's worth getting referred. I know it's a thought to do it but actively doing something can be a load off your mind, or at least that's the case with a lot of our patients. Apologies also for butting in as I don't know you, hope I haven't offended! x
24/01/2015 at 22:20
Sorry thought I had replied, neither of you have offended or anything of the sort.
My husband has two children from previous and we have a daughter from early on in our relationship but she was premature and later lost her. We conceived first month so going on 10mths is a little shock.
It took us 7 years to get to the stage we felt we could try again and because of the children tbh just thought it wasn't worth visiting any GP as they will no doubt say no and we would have to go private.
Of course I would love to be pregnant and go through it all again but in the same hand I just want to be a mummy and if that is giving a child who needs it then I would like to try that too.
Hope that makes sense

I'm so sorry for your loss, can't imagine how difficult that must have been for you and your family. You're right, there are so many ways to become a parent. It might be worth finding out the funding situation in your local area though - for us it's that you don't have a child living with you in the home, not if you've had a child full stop IYKWIM? X
25/01/2015 at 10:49
Oh Mrs-T I'm so sorry your little girl didn't make it. I understand now re the adoption/fostering & again, sorry for asking such private questions. I'd suggest ask for a fertility referral anyway and you can go from there.
Welshtistle - hello & welcome back - maybe ye can sneak it a quick one when visitors are gone/asleep?!
25/01/2015 at 14:40
Tayto - thankyou! And yes, that's the plan!
25/01/2015 at 18:06
Thank you Welshthistle and Tayto, no need to apologise at all but thank you.
AF still hasn't arrived, CD29 is disappearing fast so will test in the morning again but think its just being awkward. I think (TMI) my lining is coming away as I have seen bits in the toilet and my spotting has disappeared today.
25/01/2015 at 21:33
WT - haha - enjoy! We tried to get another in this morning but it wasn't to be - might have a go later...!
Mrs-T - fingers crossed for tomorrow for you x

Believe it is negative again with my sleepy eyes and the ovulation test too now so will just sit it out and wait. Today is CD30 which I have only had one cycle in the past year this long and believe I was this crazy last timeand by lunch time it arrived.
26/01/2015 at 08:43
Shoot Mrs-T, was hoping for you. I really hope she doesn't show up. Have you decided if you will go to Docs?
26/01/2015 at 10:01
Not yet, I need to speak to my husband properly about it all
He knows how I feel but I haven't really spoke about it all this cycle. Will see what happens this week I guess to if it shows up and when
26/01/2015 at 11:05
Ok, well let us know if you want any advice or even just to have a rant. It's what we're here for x
26/01/2015 at 11:54
Hi Welshthistle and Mrs-T.
Mrs-T - I'm so sorry about your little girl. I have my fingers crossed AF doesn't turn up, we'll be here to distract/comfort you should you need us though. x
Welshthistle - hope you managed to sneak one in!
