I've nothing to report but couldn't see it get beyond lunchtime without a thread being started!
CD8 here and will be ages til I ovulate yet so not thinking about any of it.

Little update on me. Cd3. Finally came on Saturday 4 days late and 2 days longer than my longest ever cycle. I believe the vitamins played a part in this so will carry on taking them. We have decided to give December a break as my dad is in hospital and its not really at the forefront of my mind to try an organise our donor. Hopefully the first week of Jan will be the next fertile week. New year new baby! Well fingers crossed anyhoo. Hope you are all well and congrats to those getting their BFPs recently.
I will still be lurking and good luck to you all this cycle x

This is my first outing on ttc threads so bear with me!!
Thanks for starting the thread PS, do you use ov sticks or temp or anything? I haven't started with that yet as it's our first month of TTC but I'm looking into it all.
AFM I *think* I'll ov today - been keeping a note of CM and my cycles are pretty regular and it's all pointing towards OV today. Although H is out playing tennis tonight so I'm not fancying my chances!
Look forward to getting to 'know' you all where I can (as it's hard for me to get on here during the day)
ETA cross posted there V, hope you're dad is ok and fingers crossed for next year :)

Hi PS, I hope the days pass quickly for you. TTCing is frustrating due to the waiting around.
AFM, AF due sometime this week, I've been having some aches and pains but nothing different from AF and being pregnant. I'll wait till the weekend before I test.

Vikster - Enjoy the month off and lots of luck for January :)
Gavi - Welcome to TTC threads :) I've been TTC'ing for 13 months now but I have irregular cycles. We've had the basic tests internal scan/sperm analysis and I've got an appointment with gynaecology on January 10th. I don't do opk's because my cycles are so unpredictable but I do temp, I've started giving myself the first 2 weeks of every cycle 'off' so I don't temp during that time. Will start temping again next week and keep my fingers crossed this is one of my shorter cycles and not a really long one. I normally post in the MTTC thread which is at the top of the board but as it's so quiet on the group at the moment I thought I'd pop my head back in here!
Dumblespud - TTC is nothing but waiting isn't it? so frustrating! x

Vikster - I don't blame you for having a small break from ttcing xx
Gavi - welcome! Could you just jump H anyway?
AR - thanks, going for #3 - very scary and exciting at the same time!

PS fingers crossed it's a short cycle for you
DS good luck with number three! I'll see how H feels when I've gets home although after the day at work I've had, not sure I can muster the energy!

Evening all, just in from work. I am CD17 and should have ovulated Thurs or Fri, but didn't get a positive OPK (well, it was positivish) until Friday and no temp rises until yesterday really. If my temps stay higher FF will give me crosshairs tomorrow and put ov as Saturday, so temp rise vibes needed!! I'm not sure how accurate that will be since we were in the campervan (no overnight heating) over the weekend so that may have kept temps low, but then again we've run out of heating oil so can only heat the kitchen at home at the mo, so who knows? If I get my crosshairs I'll post my chart tomorrow.
Gavi, if I can call OH out of meetings at work, I'm sure you can get yours in the mood later on ;-)
Vikster, sorry about your Dad, and lurk away xxx
DS, good luck, and fingers crossed!
PS, know exactly what you mean about waiting. Waiting for AF, waiting for AF to finish waiting to ovulate, waiting to test.... argh!!!

Hi everyone, not been on here for a while as we've just moved house but need to have a bit of a moan/vent with fellow TTCers! Due on tmw and pretty sure I'll get my period as don't feel any different to other months. This is really getting me down now as December will be cycle 14 with nothing! Think if someone had told me last September that it we'd still be trying 14 months later I'd have laughed!! I know people who've got pregnant and now have 3 month olds in the time we've been trying. Anyway it's all so frustrating, sometimes I wish we'd never started trying but I guess in a way when you make the decision to try it's very hard to go back! Good luck to everyone on here - I think we all deserve many medals for our patience!!

Hi ladies, I've been spotting for a number of days & I think I need to count sat as CD1 as I needed to use my mooncup although it's still a very light flow. Love it when the cycles are frustrating. But I want to make sure the dates are right so I need to know when to start using opks & yes I will get my head out of the sand & order more opks for the next cycle. The weekend surrounded by pregnant ladies was hard but bearable. Take care all x
