Trying to conceive

Hope you are all well and that the UK has also been blessed with beautiful weather!
It's CD5 for me and AF is well and truly on her way out. Be gone, cowbag! Feeling better about everything, as is usual on CD5, trying to keep looking ahead. Sometimes a bit difficult - at the wedding on Saturday there was a girl whinging about how she missed her body and about how the pregnancy wasn't planned ... ooooh it was so tempting to tell her how lucky she was and how I would trade places with her in a heartbeat. But I didn't. I bit my cheeks to stop my alcohol induced honesty. Yesterday there came two more FB announcements but one of them was from a girl who has been trying for over two years so I am over the moon for her :-) Also gives long term TTCers some hope.
In other - boring - news, it's a public holiday here and lovely weather so I'm gonna go for a run in 25 minutes and then go shopping for our evening picnic with friends. Hi to everyone who follows!

Enjayee - Glad to hear the cowbag is nearly gone. It is really difficult to hear of others pregnancies and especially when they are whinging. But she probably hasn't thought about how it may make other people feel. But glad you have gained some hope from the other FB announcement. Have fun on your day off in the sun!
AFM CD 14 for me. Waiting impatiently to OV, I want to get this ball rolling! Got a busy day today.

Its always hard Enjayee, my own SIL laboured the point that her pregnancy was unplanned and I cried for 20 mins when she told me. However, my new nephew was born on Friday and the jealousy and resentment has completely gone!
MummyS hope you ov soon!
8dpo and my boobs are so sore. they hurt just to touch. in fact, they hurt all the time, without touching! I'm hoping this is a good sign. x

Oh and I've just heard back about my blood results and they're all negative. So hopefully my run of bad luck is over and the cyclogest and aspirin do the trick. x

Enjayee - glad you're feeling more positive.
MS - hope ov happens soon for you. Hope your busy day is a good one and not too stressful
Rod - hope the sore boobs are a good sign. Since finishing my pill, my boobs hurt pretty much 3 out of 4 weeks so feeling your pain!!
AFM - nearly end of CD18 and still waiting for ov. I'm so annoyed cos it's bloody typical when I've had a week off and me and H have been at it like rabbits, my body decided to break out of what I was expecting!! It was day 15 and then 13 last month which tied in perfectly with my plans but no!!! We fly home tomorrow night so won't be temping at all but at the same time won't be able to cover it either so probably doesn't matter. I really felt like we could be in with a good shot this month but never mind.... Sorry for the whingey post!

Enjayee - Glad AF is almost gone - have a lovely day today.
MS - Are you as impatient as me?! I'm already wishing ov was here and I'm only on CD3! Hope you ov soon.
Rod - Sorry to hear of the achy boobs - hope it's a good sign! What were the bloods for, if you don't mind me asking?
Tonka - Have you definitely not ov'ed yet? Want to flash us your chart?
AFM - CD 3 so just waiting for ov!

Tayto the bloods were for a few different blood clotting conditions, lupus anti coagulant and thrombophilia (sp) that are known to cause miscarriages.
If I had been positive I would have had to start injections every day from a BFP.
I'm happy on one hand that I don't need to do that, but its also quite difficult when they don't say 'here is a problem and this is how you fix it' we're running the risk of losing yet another one because we haven't been given a definitive answer as to why its happened 3 times. However, we do have a plan and that's positive.

So if you do get a BFP, will you have to do anything? Continue the pessaries? I had thought they knew what was wrong and how to fix it - you're amazing for staying so positive throughout this horrible time x

I will continue the pessaries until 14 weeks if I get a BFP.
They don't know whats wrong, but the aspirin and progesterone 'wont hurt' it may be a defect in my luteal phase, because I've never seen a heartbeat, he thought perhapos I need an extra boost of progesterone. We'll see.
Thanks, but I'm not amazing, so many people go through worse than me. I'm just hopeful it will be our turn soon x

Rod, thanks for explaining about your tests. I really hope you get your sticky bean really soon xx
Tayto - I saw you were planning on starting the TTC journey for real this month! So excited for you, hope it will be a nice short smooth sailing journey for you! x
