Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Hello, how are we all? Good weekend?
I had a lazy but good one. Rather than go away in the campervan, we stayed at home, spent Saturday Christmas shopping (errm, well, also spending the best part of a grand on a new jacket, dress, jeans and shirt for me, oops!) and yesterday pottering around, tidying the garden, OH did some baking and I cooked a nice dinner and pud. So not bad.
TTC wise, no news. 9dpo on CD24. No real pregnancy signs except sore boobs, but I get those before AF as well, so not relevant. My temp also dropped this morning although still above coverline. I'd like it to be an implantation dip but I can't see that happening somehow. AF due Friday by my reckoning, although for some reason FF thinks it will be a 30 day cycle with AF on Sunday. We shall see, but I think maybe I will be right! I'm snuffling about with a cold today, which is a shame since I was going to try to go for a run to shift the pounds I've piled on since the mc. Ah well.
I hope you ladies are having a good Monday and your cycles are behaving themselves xx

Hey barefoot. Not sure how many TTC'ers are about so thought I'd reply so you were not left alone :)
Temp drop could be because you are a bit poorly - yet again it's a case of waiting and seeing what happens!
I'm CD15 now and started temping again this morning - not sure how soon my H will be able to dtd again because his back is still playing up but we should have a week or so before I ovulate (if on a shorter cycle) or possibly another month yet until I do so who knows!

Barefoot, sounds like a lovely weekend, Christmas shopping for yourself is definitely the way forward ;)
PS hopefully your h's back will feel a bit better soon so you can crack on! My hubby's got a shoulder injury which sometimes stops us dtd but mainly I just have to cope with the moaning after we've done it as that's when it gets really bad... oops!
AFM I thought I had 34 day cycles but it seems that TTC has thrown them out as its now CD36... I'm not temping but thought from CM that I O'd at around CD 20/21 (though I've had watery CM ever since so hard to tell- sorry TMI again!) but had a BFN this morning so now not really sure what's happening! x

I sympathise with the injured husbands! Mine has a chronic bad shoulder after an accident a few years ago, and it hurts him if strained or over exercised. He was whining like mad the other week when I was encouraging him to dtd, but we found a way round any pressure on it ;-)
PS that's a good point about the temp drop. I have hardly slept and been breathing a lot through my mouth due to having a stuffy nose. I'll try not to pay much attention to it, and just be satisfied that at least the temps show ovulation :-)
Scotty, hopefully you just oved late this time. I was browsing some of the FF forums while I couldn't sleep last night and someone there was saying they had constant watery cm in the run up to their bfp. Anecdotal unreliable evidence of course, but just wanted to say you're not out yet, and although it wasn't a successful pregnancy, my bfp wasn't until 17dpo xx

BF - weekend sounds exquisite - I think you deserve a shopping trip so good on you!
PS - hope that OV times with H's back getting better, although there are always ways and means!
S - hopefully it'a a late OV, will keep my fingers crossed.
AFM, I am on CD23 and either 6 or 8dpo (I though I OV'd last sunday due to CM but then I had awful pains on Tuesday last week - it's heard to tell when not temping or using OPKs I guess). My boobs are quite sore but not unusual for the week before AF, my skin is quite bad (I last had a break out like this when I had the implant still in) and I am weeing a far bit but I definitely think I'm just looking for stuff, it's so hard not to!
