Good morning all,
Horrible wet Monday morning in Kent - hope it's nicer where you are!
Test came back negative. Tiny bit of blood this morning so AF might be on her way. This was just cycle 3 for us and I promised myself that I wouldn't get upset until at least cycle 6 :)
How is everyone else doing? Anyone expect to be testing this week?

Sorry it was negative Veecee, its hard not to be disappointed isnt it, i admire ur attitude xx
Afm - CD 17 & no signs of ov. I have 32 day cycles but was hoping for something by now but no cramps & negative opks over weekend. Not sure whats going on.
21/10/2013 at 07:44
It's a miserable rainy day here too!
Veecee - sorry it was negative xx
Cooper - fingers crossed you OV soon xx
AFM - 8DPO and desperate to test!!!! Going to try and hold out till Friday when I'm 12DPO, trying so hard not to symptom spot but it's proving very difficult!
21/10/2013 at 08:29
Sorry it was a BNF Veecee, it might still be too early, fx that it is.
Cooper- I hope you get ov soon. Do you always use opks?
BM-Good luck holding out. 8dpo is too early, but you know that. I am a POAS addict, so I am a fine one to talk about now testing early!
AFM- I don't know what CD I am. FF thinks I ovd on Thursday but I'm not 100% convinced, it is about a week later that I would have expected it. We're carrying on DTD anyway, amd we have been dtd regularly this month if it was earlier, so hopefully we've done all that we can. It is just a waiting game now. My mum and granny are visiting this weekend so that will keep my mind off things and I will test next week if AF doesn't arrive.

Veecee - sorry it was negative
Cooper - Hope you get some ov signs soon!
Blessedmummy - Fingers crossed for you! Hope you can hold off testing for another few days.
Imp - Sounds like you've covered the month anyway so hope you get a good outcome :-)
AFM - CD20 AF due between Saturday and next Tuesday, I normally get spotting a day or 2 before so will know soon although, as I've said before, I'm not getting my hopes up this month as I don't think we did enough and I'm surprisinly chilled about it!
Hi to all who follow!

Veecee - Sorry to hear AF is on its way.
Cooper - Hope you ov soon. I know how frustrating it is not knowing what is going on.
Blessed - Hold out!! Nothing will pick up anything this early so there is no point :) Easier said than done I know.
Imp - FX you are where you think you are.
Lulu - Great that you are being so chilled :)
AFM - CD28, still no ov. Sigh.
21/10/2013 at 09:06
Veecee: hope it was just too early but you're doing so well to be chilled about it
Cooper: Hope your cycles settle & your body gives you signs that ov has happened
BM: You can do it, holding out is hard but hopefully worth it. Try & keep yourself busy
Imp: sounds like you've done everything you can, fingers crossed.
lulu: Another chilled one, long may it continue.
AFM: 10dop (CD 26). So no spotting spotted yet, so not out yet. Not too much symptom spotting will just have to wait & see (trying to stay chilled!). It's rainy here too. Need to find some energy to go to the farm today rather embracing the tiredness & just staying in!

Morning everyone! I've not been around here much lately but I thought whilst I have 5 mins I'd pop my head round the door.
Veecee - I'm sorry the test was negative, I hope it's just a little early for the test.
Cooper - hope you get signs of ov soon.
BM - hope you can hold out until Friday! Keeping everything crossed for you.
Lmp - fingers crossed for AF to stay away!
Lulu - liking your chilled out attitude, it's so easy to get ahead of yourself isn't it?
Pepperoni - hope ov happens soon.
BK - fellow tri buddy! How are you doing? Enjoy the farm.
AFM, well I've just posted about my strange AF this month. Long story short is that AF appeared Friday, had pretty much gone by yesterday but now appears to be back. Cue lots of symptom spotting and possible implantation bleed thoughts!

JJ - Very unpredictable so impossible to say. Never been 'regular' - shortest has been 41 days, longest 95. Off to the doctors next week to push for our fertility referral.
21/10/2013 at 10:49
JJ - Thanks. I hope so too. Me & H said last night that if they say we have to wait until 12 month mark we will consider going private for our fertility assessment.
21/10/2013 at 11:02
JJ - January, so yes! Thats what I'm hoping will make them refer us. I think its stupid, I feel like its inevitable we are going to end up at that stage so why prolong it. I think they know it as well, they've already said things like 'you don't ovulate' etc, so if I don't then why am I being made to wait. Grrr.
21/10/2013 at 11:20
JJ - I had absolutely no periods before I went on the pill, so you would think that the YEARS I went with no AF then would be enough proof that something wasn't quite right, but no - put me on the pill, now I'm having to go through the 'wait' again for the same problems to surface. Thats how it feels anyway. When I look at it like that I do think jesus, I have been patient!
21/10/2013 at 11:31
JJ - To be honest, I think that is what will happen. I just hope it is Clomid and we don't have to leap over that and start with something else because other problems surface. I've been told next step is fertility and 'probably' Clomid.

Morning all! I'm in a boring lecture with free wifi, so decided to pop on...
VC - sorry it was negative, fx it was too early.
Cooper - how frustrating for you, hope you OV soon.
BM - as per your other thread, I would be testing as I am a POAS addict hope you can hold out.
Imp - sounds like you've done all you can, you know I have everything crossed for you.
Lulu - fx for you, hope the 2ww isn't too awful for you.
Pep - it must be so frustrating, really hoping that you OV soon.
BK - I am very impressed at your control, are you going to test or just wait for AF?
WG - I think you need to test, good luck!
JJ - really sorry if it is CD1...I always find that wine, pâté, blue cheese, and rare steak always makes me feel better.
AFM - I'm 4dpo and symptom spotting already I'm hoping to hold out until Sunday (10dpo) to test, helped by the fact that my tests are at our house while I'm at my Gran's. I waver between being hopeful, and then thinking 'we TTC unsuccessfully for nine cycles last time, what's different this time?' I'm going to stay hopeful though, it's nice to have hope. I'm getting there with my studies, have a real action plan now. I'm also getting a bit of exercise in, as my subway station is two miles away, so I have a four mile walk each day. Popped one last night for a lovely home cooked meal from H, was fab!

Pep - Don't want to worry you but I went to my GP appointment last week and they've said we've got to wait 2yrs for referral and not 1 year as I was previously told. :/ I went pretty mental at the poor GP but now I'm glad I did as I think she got the details wrong. Debating whether to go back and try and see a GP whose got more knowledge on fertility and see if I get same answer as the GP back in January definately said I only had to wait 1yr due to my squiffy cycles! Lemme know how you get on either way as it might give me the kick I need to go back and ask again! :)
21/10/2013 at 17:09
Pep: Sorry think we posted at the same time earlier. Really hope you get your referral & get things moving along.
JJ: Hope you're feeling ok
Saff: How's it going in the isolated house? Hope you're getting a lot done. Good news about the tests being in a different house. To answer your question I intend to test on Friday when I'm cd 30 (unless af has arrived before then) or maybe on Thursday. Both are work days when I have to be up early & then will be busy all day so hopefully that'll help me if it's negative. Last cycle I was convinced that I was pregnant, this cycle I don't think I am after reading about the stats, will have to wait & see I suppose
