Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

A ridiculously early start from me, as I woke up in crippling pain about an hour ago. Seems like AF is well and truly on the way. Genuinely ok with it, but so not in the mood for cramps as bad as this. H has been up with me until about ten minutes ago when I sent him to bed as he has work in a few hours. I have the day off Uni so will be meeting my gran for lunch. It's two years to the day since we lost my grandad to cancer, and while everyone else seems to have recovered, for me (and also her, I think) it doesn't get any easier. It's the worst time of year, as it's just about time to start getting organised for Christmas, and the realisation that he won't be here for it hits me like a ton of bricks. I have a renewed level of grief after staying at their house last week, when visiting it's easy to not notice his stuff everywhere, but when staying there it was very raw...I don't know how my gran does it.
Sorry to bring the thread down ladies...extreme cramps, grief, and sleep deprivation is hardly a winning combination!
So, any weekend plans? I'm having a fairly quiet one, lunch with gran today and also lunch with my uncle on Sunday, aside from that I'm hoping to do some meal planning, fit in some exercise, and devise a study plan for the wall in the office...just as soon as I can stand up straight.
Hoping that nobody is having a crappier morning than me, hugs to all who need them

Oh Saff, what an awful start to the. Very sorry about AF. And I'm very sorry for your loss. It's so nice that you are going for lunch with your gran. Will you talk about him? I lost my gran this summer. She'd been ill for so long I thought it would not be too bad but it is so hard. Big hugs.
AFM cd 11 and I'd love some chart help please

Saff-sorry that you are struggling at the moment and hope you can celebrate your granddad life today with your gran xx
Veecee-I would expect FF to put ov at cd9. Did you get a pos opk that day?
AFM-cd9 still blank CB opk. Nothing else to report. Going out after work for a few beverages on a leaving do and that's about the extent of my plans thus far. Happy November to you all.

Sorry you're in pain Saffron, hope af is over quickly for you. Also sorry to hear about your Grandad, I lost mine this year also and miss him alot. Lunch with your Gran sounds lovely though, a good way to spend this day xx
Veecee - no idea on the chart, hope that means ov is going to happen soon for you!
Vikster - Have fun tonight! Hope you get a positve opk for the right days!

Morning! I'm back from the consultant but have updated in another thread to avoid disrupting this one!
Saffron, you poor thing. Sorry you feel so rubbish, and hope the weekend is better for you.
Veecee, I'd also put ov at cd9, so good luck in the 2ww!
Vikster, have a great night tonight x
Lulu, your weekend sounds lovely
AFM, I'm working tomorrow, then have my cousin's twins' christening on Sunday. Nothing else to report really, and as ever after the mc, no idea where I am in my cycle.

Sorry to hear you have had a rubbish start Saff.
No time for personals, CD16, pretty sure I ovulated yesterday but might be today - so until tomorrow I'm not in 2ww ha!
