congratulations nalc and Charlotte... Super to see your bfp's in words!
om 5dpo today and so far no spotting.... Will have to see what today brings! I'm still getting groin pains so not feeling overly positive but with no spotting so far at least there's a chance, albeit a rather small one!
mill, how is the temp?

Congratulation nalc and charlatte on your BFP......
Hope the spotting stays away for you Flossy
I'll be testing at the weekend if AF stays away FX

Oh wow huge congratulations to nalc and Charlotte! Let's hope it's the start of something for all ladies
17/08/2015 at 09:40
Thank you ladies. I really do hope you all get you BFP soon.
17/08/2015 at 09:45
How exciting Karen, hope she stays away for you
i still have to wait another week at least, think AF is due next Monday possibly Tuesday so it's going to be a long wait for me unless the dreaded spotting arrives as usual!!

Huge congratulations ladies. Wonderful to have some bfp's.
Glad to hear Af has calmed down Oxytoc. Hope you had a lovely night on Friday.
Really pleased that the spotting has stayed away so far flossy. Got everything crossed for you and that bfp!
I'm out this month. Temp was even lower today so just waiting for the witch once again. Grrr! Who knows cycle 30 might be different but I no longer have hope so I guess the disappointment isn't to much to take each month. Every cloud and all that!
We are having a few days away so will catch up on Thursday. Have a good week!
Sending shed loads of baby dust!

Congrats to you both Charlotte and Nalc
I'm now 11dpo but not hopeful still got 7 days till af
On another forum they started telling me I hadnt ovulated just coz my temp did not rise I did explain I was not temping right as I was getting up then remembering to and missed afew times and I had a positive ovulation test and ewcm so I don't understand why they wouldn't listen so they've put doubt in me now
Also did a cheap strip test smorning and was neg
Hope everyone is good x

So today is 6dpo for me and everything was looking great, no spotting this morning but I've just had a wee at work and it has begun...! Dark brown discharge
i am so gutted, I wish I could just sit here and cry! It's so frustrating that my body doesn't work and do what it should!!!
I hope you ladies are having more luck than me!!
18/08/2015 at 22:23
Sorry to hear spotting has start flossy it's so fustrating when our bodies let us down hopefully the docs will work out a way of stopping it for you xx

I've been following your posts for a while checking how u r all getting on!! I'm on the ttc after miscarriage as well which I find brilliant for support
im also like you ladies using opks every month in the hope of having a bfp that sticks soon!
A bit about me! I have 3 wonderful children boy age 12, girl age 9 and my youngest boy age 4. They are my world I mc between my first two at 10 wks. I fell pg again July 2014 but lost my little boy at 21 wks pg we were devestated, it was unexpected and all our test results came back normal so no answers. I fell pg again in April but had chemical pg within 1 wk. Fell pg again in July and again 4 days later had another chemical pg, we are so gutted. No answers again all tests normal! So here I am again back to my opks!! I use the cheapies from the pound shop and you get 5!! bargain! When I get a good strong line I use my clear blue digital just to check and they seem to always be right. My cycles are 28 days and I ovulate always days 11-14 this month after mc it was day 14. I'm now about 12 dpo no pg symptoms. Did a sly test and negative so waiting for AF to arrive Thursday to start all over again!! The upside is I know the opks work as I've used them for all ( but my first) of my pgs. Now I just need my bean to stay put. Loosing my little boy at 21 wks has left me desperately wanting my bump back and to feel the hole I've been left with. I'd already purchased the pushchair, bottles etc as when at 5 months you think all is ok.
Anyway that's my story and I wish us all luck in getting our BFP.
Congrats to the ladies that have recently got their BFPs

i'm new to all this but following some of the threads and thought I would join in!
it is our first time ttc, I was on the Yasmin pill for 13 years and came off at the beginning of June this year. I am now on cd70, have done multiple hpts but all bfn... I decided to start trying the opks 4 days ago, at first the line was really faint but for the past few days it has been fairly strong! Surely I can't be just about to ovulate now?? Has anyone had anything similar to this happen?
i have attached a pic from today, I know it's negative because the line is not as strong as the control but it is still quite strong...
would love some words of advice/ encouragement and looking forward to joining your group (if you'll have me! )

Hi, I hope it is ok if I join your thread. I am very new to ttc. This is my second month and first using opk's. I had a shock ectopic in May while I had the Mirena in place and after all that's happened me and my partner would like a baby. I am currently cd13 and the line on my opk has been getting stronger each day but not yet reached positive. Once I get a positive I understand you will ovulate within 24-36 hours. I'm just wondering when 1dpo would start from if that makes sense? Thanks in advance ladies and baby dust to all x

Hi Scotty, once you have your positive opk, the following day is classed as ovulation and then the next day is 1dpo... So this month I got my positive on cd21 so ovulation was cd22 and I was 1dpo on cd23 and now I'm 8dpo (if I remember correctly). I think they usually say you ovulate 12-24hrs after getting a positive opk, your best to try and bd every other or every third in the run up to ovulation to try and make sure your covered rather than waiting for the positive as it can take some sperm 12hrs to get to where they need to be!! Good luck
