Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Thanks Flossy, that makes sense. I never realised ttc was so technical. I got pregnant with my first while on the pill so never actually ttc before now.
20/08/2015 at 13:29
I know.... It's far more difficult than it should be hopefully you won't be here long!!!

Welcome new ladies and good luck.
Congratulations emzyg. Very exciting
How are you Oxytoc?
Flossy so sorry to read that the spotting has started. I really hope you get some answers soon hun. You deserve a bfp so much!
We Well I'm now back to cd3. The witch decided to make here appearance on the second day we were away, how nice!
20/08/2015 at 17:11
Mill, how was your trip away? I'm so pleased your back... need a shoulder to whinge on! Lol!
such a shame the witch decided to appear on your break away but at least your up and running for your next cycle
im so fed up, the docs aren't even interested in the spotting so I may make an appointment to go back and discuss but I really don't see much point.
yes, oxytocin, how are you??
20/08/2015 at 17:16
It was great thank you. Always nice to escape normal daily routines and life for a little while.
Yep all ready to have another go this cycle.
I cannot believe the doctors are not interested. Maybe fertility is something they haven't specialised in. I know our doctor didn't know what the protocol was when we first went. You have nothing to lose making an appointment again. I think I would!
20/08/2015 at 18:18
Aaaaah, I'm glad you had a nice time! I just love little breaks away
they just weren't interested, all she was interested in was doing bloods to see if I was ovulating and as soon as we got a month where I had. She just said we have to do sa and then see how that comes back and go from there... I think my progesterone levels must crash as soon as I ovulate as the spotting starts so soon afterwards!!! I don't know what happens, that's the worse thing! This month i was doing so well to get to 6dpo, although I guess with the groin pains, I should have known it was just a matter of time!!
I have a feeling about your September cycle, I just hope I'm right! Lol!
20/08/2015 at 20:44
Ahhh would love September to our month but I'm not holding my hopes up! If you get it right tho people would pay money for your insight lol.
Well if you happen to get to Oct to the tests and the fertility unit I'm sure they will def look at it. From what I've seen it does sound like progesterone is your problem. Not sure if it was on here or on the forums on my app people are talking about eating avocado to extend lp and helping with progesterone. Might be worth looking at as something to do xx

I've just come to rant.... Sorry ladies!! Feel like crap knowing that nothing is working. Pissed off with my oh because he thinks he understands! Ok, so today I am clearly emotional as had so spotting until the last wee which has clearly made my mood nose dive..... Blahhhhhhhhhhh
21/08/2015 at 18:16
Hi flossy, it's certainly an emotional rollercoaster! Are you on any vitamins? Hope you feel a little better for a rant
21/08/2015 at 18:23
Hey flossy you have come to the right place! Sorry you're feeling emotional today hun but a good rant does us all good. As vikster said it is an emotional roller-coaster especially when you get this far along. Hopefully September will be your month! Have everything crossed for you.
Keep smiling and feel free to rant as much as you like

Hello I hope you don't mind me joining the thread me and my partner have decided today ttc our 5th and last child this is the first time we have ever planned a baby as the other times it just happened I bought some opks today which I have never used before and I took one which has a faint line which I know is negative but at least I know I'm on my way to o day I'm currently CD10 according to my app and LMP I'm very excited to start ttc and wish everyone luck on there baby making xx
21/08/2015 at 20:43
Thanks ladies.... It's just so bloody hard!! I feel mentally and emotionally ruined at the moment. Yes, I'm taking the pregnacare vitamins. I'm taking the one for during pregnancy just so that I know if anything happens, I know it won't harm the baby!!
Mill, I don't know how you have the strength as 10 months feels like a lifetime, so god knows how you much feel!
21/08/2015 at 20:52
I'm not quite sure either. We were talking about that the other day. The only way we have dealt with it is by looking at it a few months at a time, so once we got to 12 months we went to docs and then we took each test, month, appointment one at a time. I've never been through anything as draining or emotional. I was saying to dh that I'm looking forward to IVF to come now because at least that's the end of ttc. Either way we come out of it pregnant or have to face our lives without children but it will be the end of another chapter. Makes me feel incredibly emotional.
Flossy you will get your bfp I'm sure of it
21/08/2015 at 21:07
You will get your babies and they're going to be so lucky to have such a strong Mummy!!!
its just so draining, I feel like I'm going to have a massive meltdown over it. Whenever the spotting has started over the past few months I've been at work or my oh has been at work so I've felt like i needed to cry but haven't been able to, especially this month getting to 6dpo.... I just know something is going to tip me over the edge and it's not going to be fun!! Lol!
21/08/2015 at 21:56
Thank you flossy you're so kind
I think it would do you good to have a good cry and a scream if needs be. It's really hard when you're at work. Once I had to go home because I got myself so worked up. I had to make an awful excuse but I just need to get out of there. Spent the afternoon crying but felt better after for doing it!
Have you got anyone else who knows what your going through who you can have vent to and confide in?
I really hope you don't get to October but if you do they will sort your spotting and find out what's going on. Have you thought about going back to the doctor in the meantime?
22/08/2015 at 09:39
Morning all! I think one positive is that you will def be ready to handle a baby when you have been through so much to get one.
I think I may be going crazy today. 14dpo and of course the usual BFN. No sign of period so did an OPK, just peeing on what ever I can find, and it's positive. Can my cycle be this messed up? Maybe we should all have a group cry and then get on and enjoy the weekend!
22/08/2015 at 09:53
Hahaha, vikster, that could be what we need!!
i know a positive opk can mean pregnancy too but i don't know about that one as it's not positive but clearly there is a good line there!!
I know this is tmi- but yesterday and today I've only had spotting (so far for today) when I've had a poo?!?? Lol! What's that all about?? I've still bern having the pains and as I think about it, it happens most months, the spotting is worse when I poo!!!! How is that even possible?!??
mill, I'm really not sure about going back to the docs. Until my oh does his tests, they aren't interested as they can refer is until those results are back. I don't think they will look in to it as were so close to the referral point now anyway.
Hope you ladies have a lovely weekend
22/08/2015 at 11:15
Hey im like 4dpo hate this 2ww!! Just think af will turn up again .. I got a faint line on opk yestefsay is that normal .. I got my positive in the am and bd that night hope that will be enough xx
22/08/2015 at 13:41
Hi flossy, no such thing as tmi on here! Maybe something to talk to the doc about.
The left darkest link is the test line. It's the strongest positive I've had on these. But I've been in an awful mood the last few days, snapping at anyone who looks at me, so sure AF will make an appearance.
22/08/2015 at 14:40
Flossy sorry to hear you're so emotional just now. Hope you're feeling a bit better today. As the girls say, it's such an emotional process so it definitely helps to vent on here and have a good wee cry.
Glad you enjoyed your time away Mill and you're raring to go this month! Everything crossed for you.
Welcome to the new ladies! Thanks for sharing your journey so far with us. Wishing you all lots of baby dust!
Im just plodding on..for now! According to my app I am cd11 today so just waiting for a positive opk and trying to temp & BD! Only just started the temping 4 days ago so its hard to see any kind of pattern yet. It has jumped up a wee bit today since taking it yesterday however, it's a bit awkward as I am nightshift just now so all my times are away to pot! Has anyone else temped when on nights? I took it today after having a few hours sleep. Will be heading back to bed shortly to try and get another few hours so might take it again when I wake up x
