Trying to conceive

Morning all, Monday again :(
8 dpo for me. My temp has dropped down today and I'm hoping its an implantation dip!! Maybe wishful thinking though.
Hope everyone else is ok, especially those in the 2WW.
17/06/2013 at 08:27
Hope everyone had a fab weekend!
Mrs V, fx that your temp dip is a good sign x
AFM 13dpo. Feeling quite crampy this morning. AF would normally be due today or tomorrow but think it will be more like Wed/Thurs before it arrives this week thanks to pregnacare.
Hi to everyone who follows, hope everyone in the 2ww is still holding up x

Morning ladies :)
Fx for an implantation dip Mrs V!
Ooooo Figaro, exciting times! It would be good if you've lengthened your LP from the vitamins, but it would be even better news if its because of a BFP! Keep us posted :)
AFM, had a good weekend but wished the weather would make its mind up! Nowt to report TTC-wise as we're still on pause waiting for me to escape my work but I'm trying really hard to stay positive. Really trying,
Big hugs and fingers crossed for all those in the 2ww!
Hi Mrs V and Figaro.
I appear to be in the 2ww unexpectedly. I'm still doing OPKs until Thursdsy as I don't quite believe I ovulated nearly 1 week earlier than I'd expected!!!!
Apart from that, it's Monday. Boooooooooooooooo.
Hi to all that follow
17/06/2013 at 08:35
Sorry GOM, missed you there. Stay positive Mrs. Time is flying by xx
17/06/2013 at 08:49
Thanks GOM! I'm pretty sure that AF is on the way but I am really pleased by how long my LP has been this cycle. Normally I'd at least have had spotting by now, and some cycles my LP has been as short as 9 days! I'll definitely keep going with the pregnacare, even if it is on the pricey side. And if AF does arrive at least I'll finally be able to switch on my CBFM, so it's not all bad
Hope time flies for you hun xx
CA, ooo fingers crossed for the 2ww! Hope you caught it x
17/06/2013 at 08:55
mrs v - fingers crossed it's a dip. I got dips on my 2 BFP charts so it's a good sign!
fig - hopefully it's because of a BFP but if LP is longer then that's fab too. I'd be testing by now if i were you but i realise i'm a bad influence!!
GOM - try and stay cheerful. The time will pass faster than you think.
CA - 2ww time then! Our cycles do like to keep us on our toes.
AFM - CD10 so planning lots of action this week. Plan is to just go for it from now until after ov-ing! Still getting lows on CBFM, i'm expecting to ov end of week or over next weekend so it'll be interesting to see when it starts to show highs. My friend at work told me she's 12 weeks pregnant which is so exciting. Her little boy is 10 weeks older than P so we were pregnant together last time. If i was to get a BFP this cycle we'd have exactly the same gap again! Work would love us as we both teach in the same department - hehe!

I confess, I broke last night and tried to test with an ic but the whole damn thing stayed pink so it was impossible to read. Lesson learned, I'll wait like I originally planned
Good luck for this weekend AR! How exciting if you and your friend are pregnant together again - fx!
17/06/2013 at 09:38
On my phone so no personals sorry.
Hope everyone is doing well, we must be due a BFP from someone as seems ages since we had one!
11dpo here, AF due Wednesday and got the familiar crampy pains, so not holding out much hope this cycle. Got a thermometer and some Opks all out and ready for CD1 so not all bad news as actually quite looking forward to charting and temping so any tips very much welcomed.
Hope you have all got lots of exciting plans for the week and fingers firmly crossed for the rest of you in the 2ww.
17/06/2013 at 10:02
I hope you all had great weekends.
Mrs V - Fingers crossed that is a sign of implantation for you
Figaro - Thats amazing that the vitamins have increased you LP. Although you are still in with a chance this month!
GOM - When do you escape from your work?
Choc Apple - Welcome to the 2ww!
AutumnRose - Enjoy the next week of going for it!! It would be lovely for you and your friend to go though it tgether.
Pink Panther - You're good to start charting, I look at other peoples and they confuse the hell out of me!!
AFM - I'm 12dpo and AF is due to show up on Wednesday. My boobs feel sensitive and heavy which for me is a sure sign she is on her way,
I'm seriously toying with the idea of getting a CBFM for next month, however my OH is against this. He thinks I need to relax and just forget we're trying and then it will happen. However I don't know how I can relax and forget! Who ever forgets something they want so much! I feel like if I have the CBFM I'll feel like I have some control and that may relax me. He just hears people say things like oh it just happened when we have up trying and thinks my wanting to know exactly when I OV etc is a problem.
Sorry for the rant! I just feel like he doesn't understand my frustrations. I just don't feel like I fully understand my cycles so have no control.
17/06/2013 at 12:29
DP I just don't think men understand the constant symptom watching like we do. They don't analyse every single little niggle and twinge and drop of CM because they're not going through it. Hence their ability to relax and forget! The CBFMs are MUCH cheaper on eBay. Half the price they are in Boots for a new one and even less for a used one (you can reset them so that they forget all of the previous owner's cycle details). Maybe if you point out to H how much you're saving then he'll be more open to the idea? (This is my usual bargaining tool with H!)
Hope AF stays away PP, but glad you're feeling positive about temping and opks.

Hello everyone - hope you all had a brill weekend!
Mrs V you never know!
Figaro either option sounds like a good one, but obviously a BFP would be better.
GOM Hello, hope the notice is going OK and you're on countdown! Def stay around please xx
CA that would be good if you are - a whole week of the 2ww gone in a flash!
AR enjoy the action - fingers crossed your friend is a good omen for you!
PP you enver know until AF arrives as pg symptoms are so similar, you're doing well not testing yet.
DollyP sorry you're frustrated, Men really do have no idea and it all seems to be on us. Do you temp? I was thinking if you temped for a couple do months you may get an idea about what your body is doing and then compromise with H to say if you're still waiting crack out the CBFM then. It does annoy me how they can be so laid back though wehn we ahev all the stress and all they ahve to do is perfrom!
AFM well I'm out this cycle, AF arrived yesterday so a 31 day cycle - a day longer than last month but for 3 months off the pill I'm pretty happy that they're regular-ish. H leaves in 3 weeks so we're not going to try too hard this month just see what happend - when he's back in November though it will eb all guns blazing! I'm thinking of temping while he's away to get an idea of cycles and take it from there.
17/06/2013 at 15:33
Sorry AF arrived Grif, but good news that your cycles are nice and regular. FX for this cycle - I'm sure you'll be making the most of H before he leaves so you never know
17/06/2013 at 15:45
Digraph he won't know what's hit him ha! We need to stock up for 4 long months ......!!!
17/06/2013 at 16:20
Figaro - I would definitely re-test! Can't believe you are being so patient. Gold star for you!
GOM - thanks, I've got my FX too.
CA - Wish I could skip a week of the 2WW :)
AR - Hope you get a peak soon.
PP - Hope it isn't AF. Are you planning on testing?
DP - I'm sure blokes think we are mad but I think it gives us some control by testing. Maybe you can do it without him noticing?!
Grif - Sorry AF arrived. i would recommend charting, I'm finding it really interesting and it will give you something to focus on.
I'm going mad with this 2WW! I got a positive OPK on the Thursday and Fertility Friend thinks it was the Sunday I ov'ed? Does that sound right to those of you who temp? If I o'ved earlier I could probably test as I got my BFP on 10dpo last time. Any advice anyone?
17/06/2013 at 16:23
Thanks all, maybe I'll give this temping malarkey a go, maybe I can be more descrete with that? He's really against the idea of planning when we dtd!! He thinks it'll just happen!
17/06/2013 at 17:48
Ok Im officially a knob. Got home and tested as H wasn't here. Think I've got the faintest of lines but really not sure.
don't think Im going to tell H! Help girls am I an idiot for doing it so early?!
17/06/2013 at 18:02
Ooo exciting! Post a pic!!
17/06/2013 at 18:08
TBH I doubt the line would show up in a pic! going to retest tomorrow morning I think. How Im going to sleep I don't know :)
17/06/2013 at 18:17
Eeek good luck lovely lady, I have my fingers firmly crossed for you! I'll be eagerly checking for your update in the morning :) x
