Welcome new ladies and good luck ttc!
Flossy I'm sorry but not to sure why that's happening. Maybe try googling it! Are you feeling any better today?
Vikster I hope Af doesn't show. Where are you in your cycle?
Oxytoc I believe temping can be tricky when you work night shifts but just try and take it when you have had the most amount of sleep and in a month or so you will start to pick up patterns etc also the app should still be able to detect o day . Which app are you on?

Today has been rubbish... you know I that melt down I was due, some of that came out today. My best friend has found out she's pregnant this morning, her first month of ttc her second.
Im overjoyed for her, but I'm totally fed up and have lost all enthusiasm for it. I just feel like throwing in the towel and giving up.
Ive had more spotting today than the last couple of days and still got the groin pains so seems as though it's just a waiting game for AF to turn up which I think should be Tuesday.

Aw flossy *big virtual hug* it must've been hard hearing your friend's lovely news and trying to stay positive but don't give up! Your bfp will come, look at Janice! Xxx

Oh flossy I'm sorry hun. Sending hugs too! Once your Af turns up you can focus on a new month!
You will get your bfp soon too

I just don't think I can do it anymore. Im so close to giving it all up. I've spent so much time and energy ttc for the last 10 months, I feel like I've taken time from my daughter and it's all been a complete waste of time...
life is just shit sometimes I guess

So AF arrived yesterday so I'm out again. Even though I got a smiley Face on opk and dtd loads think it's the end of the ttc road.
23/08/2015 at 08:40
its a pain when you know your dtd the right time each month and it still doesn't work... I think the stats are about 20% of people get pregnant each month so try not to be too disheartened, at least it's the start of you new cycle which might just be the one! I know it's far easier said than done- all this positive thinking!!

Just to mention I'm on CD 12 xx
23/08/2015 at 09:13
sorry I missed your comment from yesterday!
yes, as long as the lines are getting darker it usually means your getting closer to ovulation. Although I have had a month where it came from nowhere!!!
Just bd every two to three days to make sure you are covered would be my best advice.
also, remember, any app that you are using just works on averages from the information that you put in so isn't really always accurate. For example, my app says my cycles are 30 days with ovulation happening usually around day18, but I tend to have one short cycle then one longer cycle so if I went by my app I would completely miss ovulation altogether as I tend to ovulate cd15 or cd20!!

Good morning ladies.
Sorry to hear your out karen. Flossy is right, each month you have just a 20% chance of conceiving. I've bd'ed the at the right time for the last 30 cycles and got know where. It's crap! Hopefully this month will be when you get your bfp!
Ash it looks like o is on its way. Are you testing once a day?
Flossy I hope you're doing OK today
23/08/2015 at 09:28
Hey girls thank you for your replys oh I see about the app I might stop looking at that as much I've never used opks before so my knowledge is only from reading the forum lol apart from today I've tested twice a day but getting low on opks so gonna do 1 a day until I buy some more it's just worrying because from today till Tuesday my partner is off at work then he is back from Wednesday till Saturday (he works nights) so can't really Bd during the day because his tired and because of the children aswell do you think i will have a chance this month? Hope next month is positive for everyone xx
23/08/2015 at 09:29
Thanks Mill, I'm ok, AF is due around Tuesday I think so trying not to get my hopes up too much that she might not arrive... Why do I still do that? I know full well she will arrive yet for some reason I kod myself that just maybe she won't?! Lol!
im on the clear blue study next month and if it's unsuccessful I think they send you another ovulation test for the following month so I think I'm going to use those, and just see how I feel. My daughter starts preschool in September so if work offer me different hours I might just take on more work and forget about ttc. I can't keep going through this. If my oh isnt moving forward with doing his tests, I'm not going to put my job and life on hold anymore and just move forward with that instead.
The reason he hasn't done it is apparently he just thinks it will naturally happen by itself- reality is he just doesn't want to, and if that's his attitude then I've decided I shouldn't try and change it because it will be his loss in the long run.
23/08/2015 at 09:32
Ash, if you bd today and then again on Wednesday when he's back you should still be covered as sperm lives a few days anyway! how long are your cycles usually? Once you've got a positive opk and you work out how long your lp is, you should get a better idea of when you will ovulate each month and can plan your opks around that so you don't waste lots each month by starting testing too early!
23/08/2015 at 09:35
My cycles differ each month from 29 days to 34 days i came off cerezette nearly 3 months ago and was on for 3 then off for a week then on for 4 days and then didn't have anything till the 12th this month and that only lasted 4 days (normally last 7days) bit confusing lol xx

I know I should keep positive and it's a new cycle but I'm 36 next month.....time is not on my side anymore....on plus side I do have some more CB OPK so I will carry on for another month at least, it's not like I've got anything else to do. Maybe if I did it wouldn't be so bad.
23/08/2015 at 10:04
I know that feeling Karen!! Although age isn't a huge issue for me, having nothing to do but constantly think about all this drives me blooming mad!!!
23/08/2015 at 10:25
Karen loads of people get pregnant at 36! Stay positive it will happen for you
Flossy sorry to hear about your oh. Maybe he will reconsider the closer you get to October. Hopefully you come out with a bfp at the end of the clear blue study!
Ttc does drive you mad. Since we decided to start ttc it's never been off my mind!
