Good Morning All
I hope it's nice and sunny for everyone.
It's CD1 here which is a bit rubbish but as I guessed we were out this month anyway I'm glad AF showed her ugly face 2 days early so it's onwards and upwards for this cycle. Hi to all who follow.

Morning Rosco - any plans for the weekend? Sorry to hear AF is here but as you say, onwards n upwards. Have you 2 cycles now since coming off BC? How's the length/ov dates looking for you?
AFM - CD7 so boring really. We're off to the BBC Good Food show this weekend; hope my knee will be up for the walking around!
Hello to all who follow & any lurkers!

Onwards and upwards and everything crossed for this cycle Rosco298 x
I am CD22 of a 28 day cycle usually and getting desperate to test! Will tomorrow be too early for a first response? I am symptom spotting like mad, I have dull aches in my stomach area, more frequent toilet visits and feeling nauseous but is that just because I am thinking about it!
We are off to view some houses so would love for it to be positive and be able to visualise a beautiful family home. Plus with it being fathers day on Sunday I know it will make the hubbys day!

Rosco - sorry its CD1, chocolate & wine required! Fingers crossed for this cycle xx
Afm - CD15 & still a low on CBFM but thats totally normal for me. We have a lot on this month & H away with work most of the next few weeks so not expecting anything. But hoping to learn about my cycle & hope its back to a "normal" length.
Have a good time at the good food show Tayto, I love cooking so quite jealous as I would love to go at some point.

Tayto - this is the 2nd full cycle yes. The first was 29 days and this one was 27 so there or there abouts so I think it's 'normal' or as near to normal as anyone ever gets. As for OV dates I tried OPK's but never got a positive but I do get other signs so I think I OV but just somewhere in the middle not sure of exact dates. The BC I was on doesn't stop OV only AF so I think OV should have been happening as normal. Anyway the H and I are off punting this weekend which should be good and we may do some shopping too which would be good. Then Sunday will be a farm day as my horse was a bit lame on Weds so i'm hoping he is better or if he's not better I'll know to call the vet.

Sorry missed Tayto & Mrs T as was typing
Tayto - sorry you're at the boring bit too - hope your knees ok & you enjoy the Good Food show
Mrs T - what CD did you ovulate? Fingers crossed for you!
Mrs-T - do you know when you ovulated? If you do and it's more than 8 days, I would say do a FRER but, if not, I would suggest not to do a test yet because it could be too early. Enjoy the house hunting - I loved looking at houses when we got ours - it's so nice to visualise what you can do with it!
Cooper - hope you ovulate soon. Also hope the CBFM helps you understand more about your cycle. I bought one too (bargain on ebay!) and am using it this cycle - I keep messing up putting the sticks in - it's just too early at 6AM to be messing about with poas and stuff!

Nice to see it so busy on here that we all keep missing each other! Rosco - I wouldn't worry about the opks - mine never looked right for me; only ever got faints and then negs but my temping still confirmed ov. Enjoy the punting & hope your horse is better x
13/06/2014 at 10:08
Tayto - i havnt been using new sticks everyday as I know how strange my cycle can be! Though i probably will from CD19, in the faint hope my cycle behaves! I set my time for 9.30 so that i have 3 hours either side, working well so far as I work a mix of dayshifts & nightshifts. I hope it helps us both!!
13/06/2014 at 10:15
Cooper - yeah, I think you're right to not bother when you know you ovulate later - those sticks are too expensive to be using that many! I set mine for my usual getting up time as I temp as well and the temps go askew if I take them at different times.
13/06/2014 at 10:26
Tayto - Yes last Friday/Saturday time as I am using a CBFM so maybe a little too early still.
I was trying to explain to the husband how I just feel different to normal, I have a 28 day cycle which only lasts a few days and I don't get any aches or pains until about CD2 and its gone by CD3. I have only had one drink this morning and already needing to visit the bathroom several times. But maybe it is just because I am wanting to feel it that my head is telling me lies!

Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend!
This is the first time I've written on one of these threads. It's CD27 for me. My last cycle was shorter than usual so I think this one will be a bit longer, also I am having very slight cramps so I think AF will arrive at some point. Fingers crossed not though! If she does (tbh I don't think we timed DTD right this month) I'm going to use an OPK next month!

Fingers crossed BrownEyedGirl x

Thanks Mrs-T, and you! :)

Wow it's busy on here today! I'll be back on later when I have more time to read through and do personals.
CD 19 here. My cycle is very confusing ATM. I thought I had OV'd a couple of days ago as I had some EWCM (sorry for TMI). But today and yesterday I had a lot more EWCM. I'm not temping or doing OPK's. Does anybody else track their OV by EWCM? Any ideas on how I know which day I've OV'd, or is it more of just knowing the general time?
Also, today I'm symptom spotting. Not sure what for, OV or pregnancy. But I've been really tired (part and parcel of having a 7month old I guess), sore boobs, slight cramping, being a bit emotional. These are all signs of ovulation right?

Hello again, thought I'd quickly update the thread! We had some exciting news yday, I did 2 tests and both came back positive!! Very early days so not getting too carried away but we're very happy. Good luck to everyone else!! X
