Hi to all that follow

Morning all! :)
Cooper keep testing and dtd just in case! Opks drive me mental this month so I won't be using them next month I don't think.
AFM- I'm on 7dpo. Feeling 'normal' so I'm not sure I've caught this month. It's my first month of ttc after the last mc and I've out way too much pressure on myself, I swore I wouldn't do it but I have and lady night I cried myself to sleep :(
Anyway, AF is due this time next week so if the witch is late I'll text then, but I'm not hopeful.
24/10/2013 at 08:11
Oh imp poor you, be kind to urself - u've been through a lot. I really hope u've caught this month.
Have u got plans this weekend to distract ur thoughts? Easier said than done i know xx

Yeah, my mum and granny are coming to stay. Going for a curry tomo night, then champagne afternoon tea on Saturday, then out for an Italian on Saturday night. Oh, and shopping on Sunday. So the best weekend ever! :)

Cooper-good news on the pos opk and good luck for the rest of the cycle.
IMP-I hope you have a good weekend and sorry you had such a shitty time last night but you are allowed the tears, I just hope you are in a better head space this morning.
AFM-I'm 100% out. Sl*g bag b*tchface got me this morning. A little worried about LP length but am hoping its a one off. Going to text out donor later with dates for next months want to do 3 insems. Good thing about short cycles is I've only got to wait 11 days to try again. I'm joining slimming world again tonight as I'm a porker:-(
24/10/2013 at 08:42
Sorry you're out this cycle vik. Maybe you ov'd earlier than you thought? Fx for this next cycle.
I'm feeling better today, thanks. The daytime is always better, it's lying in bed at night when my head goes potty!
24/10/2013 at 09:04
Cooper - lots of dtd to make sure you are covered
Imp - sorry to hear this (although the weekend sounds kinda awesome). have you ever tried meditation before bed? i find when i'm very stressed or worried even 5-10 minutes listening to meditation music (quick google finds loads) and focusing on breathing can really help.
Vik very sorry to hear that. Hope you get the right dates sorted for this month. Good luck with slimming world - I've kicked myself into healthy eating gear this week as well. Weight has just been creeping up too much over the last year.
AFM - well i'm just very confused. AF finished after less than 48 hours. This happened me in August and I was so confused then that a few days later I did a HPT and got a BFP but then more negatives. Thought then it was chem but figure it can't be as I didn't bleed again for a few weeks. What is going on with me?! Should I be worried about irregular cycles and short periods?
24/10/2013 at 09:23
Am back from 2 weeks holidays with no Internet - bliss :)
So it seems I've missed lots - amongst others that we now are back to a daily TTC board? Fine with me -they were really getting long! At least I can start personals again :)
Cooper - Enjoy the fun part of TTC!
Imp - Huge hugs - let yourself cry - its the best healer. It is so hard not to feel the pressure - I'm the same. I swore too but just so hard. This is our 2nd (or 3rd?) month of TTC-ing after my MC so I'm trying to stay positive. For me the difference after the MC is that when AF shows up and its not a BFF, I feel not only disapointed but also physically sick as it reminds me of the MC and the shock and feelings I had at the time - probably too much info sorry. Anyway I am sending you a special hug xxxxx Have a gorgeous and relaxing weekend with those brilliant plans xxxxx
Vickster - sorry that AF turned up. Hope next month you get a few more trys from your donor xxx Good idea distracting yourself with weight loss - I always launch myself into a Fitness blitz once AF shows up!
Veecee - thats odd - are you going to do a test? Even just to rule it out? I think I would..... good luck
AFM - bit worried as I use the Clear Blue monitor and it jumped to 2 columns today (3 is a peak - ovulation) - its CD 7 today - last month I got the peak on Day 10 which is about 4-5 days earllier than my usual cycle. AF showed up finally on CD 32. So could it have been right and that ovulation really was on CD10? I though AF shows up roughly 14 days after ovulation meaning somethings not right with the monitoor or?? I'm afraid that this cycle is going the same road - will definately continue to DTD after the monitor says its ovulation to try and catch the egg. TRYING not to stress myself that my little one is getting older - and the gap between # 1 and # 2 is getting further and further apart :(
Anyway - hugs to all and looking forward to your theories on my cycle - thanks xxxxx

Cooper - Lucky you having today off it's meant to be a really nice day. Great news on the positve opk!
Imp - Sorry to hear you had a bad night, not too long for you to wait now. You have a lovely weekend planned!
Vikster - So sorry af arrived, roll on next month for you sounds like you've got a good plan in place :-)
Veecee - Sorry I have no idea but I'm sure someone will be around to advise you. Why do our bodies have to play tricks on us in the most frustrating way!
AFM - CD23 so Af due anytime soon, I normally get spotting a couple of days before so I'm on the lookout ha ha!
24/10/2013 at 09:38
Missed you Lulu - hi!
Hope AF does'nt show - good luck
24/10/2013 at 09:51
Veecee I know someone else going through exactly the same thing at the moment. Have you thought about speaking to your gp about it? She's had this happen twice now and it's heartbreaking.
Sue- nice to see you! Although I wish neither of us were here, in the nicest possible way. I'm doing ok, or at least I thought I was. I was just do sad last night about what I've lost this year. But today I'm trying to be positive about things, there's no point dwelling on the past.
Lulu I hope AF stays away, do you usually have short ish cycles?
24/10/2013 at 09:56
Imp - you have had a very tough 2013. Hope 2014 is looking to be your year xxx
24/10/2013 at 09:58
2013 has been crapola! Roll on 2014 and the year of happiness!
24/10/2013 at 10:00
Hi Sue thanks! Sorry I can't help with your question but good luck anyway!
Thanks Imp, since ttc my cycles have been either a 'normal' 28 day or short 24 day! Last month was 28 days but I think I ov'd on cd 10 or 11 so expecting 24 day cycle but who knows! Can a lp be longer than 14 days?
24/10/2013 at 10:58
Morning all...early start for me today *yawn*
Cooper - yay on the + OPK, test again today just in case!
Imp - try to be kind to yourself, you know where I am if you need to offload, x
Vikster - sorry it's CD1 I definitely think you could have OV'd earlier though, are you temping? If so, give us a flash!
VC - how confusing, sorry I have no advice
Sue - welcome back! Maximum LP is about 18days, so I think the monitor must be wrong. Maybe you surged twice? Can you use cheapie OPKs this month alongside?
Lulu - fx AF stays away!
AFM - 7dpo and symptom spotting galore, will probably start testing tomorrow I reckon it will be Sunday before I'll feel like the test is accurate though, but I have so many ICs I may as well!
24/10/2013 at 12:58
Hey saff- dpo twin! Good luck with testing if you do tomorrow!
24/10/2013 at 13:04
Thanks Imp! Although even if I was lucky Sunday is realistically the very earliest that I would see a line. How're you managing with the symptom spotting? I have had excess CM (including EWCM), cramps, a temp dip, and today a really bad headache...I'm bloody hopeless, aren't I?
24/10/2013 at 13:08
So sorry to crash - I feel terrible but I was such an obessive charter/temp taker/reader of all literature related to TTC that I can't help myself when I see something I think I might be able to comment on! Please tell me to f-off if my posting offends anyone. I wanted to say to Sue that I agree with what Saffy is saying because it's unlikely you peak at CD 10 but your cycle doesn't end for another 20+ days. I might be wrong as I'm no medical expert but as someone who very regularly surged once sometimes twice before ov (and I had the full range of symptoms from positive OPK/EWCM/ov pain) this is a highly plausible explanation. It's not so much that the monitor has it wrong rather that it's picking up the surge in hormones correctly but it can't confirm that you've actually ov'd. This is why temping is so useful as beyond a blood test it's the only reliable way for you to know that it's actually occured. It was a pain in the backside continually surging and I was one of those that DTD so much that both H and I were sick of it. It might be worth using IC OPKs for the whole cycle to keep an eye on a later surge if you run out of sticks?
Again sorry to crash. Vik - that's crap :( and hugs to you Imp. Don't be too hard on yourself and cry if you need to. It's truly been a sh*t year. xxx
24/10/2013 at 13:09
I've now convinced myself it hasn't happened, hence the tears last night, so I have actually stopped with the symptoms. I am hopeful that with a busy weekend ahead it'll take my mind off it. Then Thursday next week will be here before I know it, who am I trying to kid??!!
I hope your syptoms are real, fx.
24/10/2013 at 13:12
Oh Imp, I'm sorry I hope your busy weekend keeps your mind occupied, and you know that I have absolutely everything crossed for you!
Lovely to see you Sweetpea
