Trying to conceive

HOpe no one minds me starting off today. CD24 and somewhere 7-9dpo. POAS this morning because i couldn't help myself. It was BFN but i'm not remotely bothered or surprised, P's BFP wasn't until 13dpo and a very faint line then. I just seem to love the POASing!!! We aren't even starting properly until next cycle so could just do with AF turning up at weekend and cracking on properly.
Off baby swimming with P this morning then going for coffee with another MDer. This afternoon we'll try and get out in the sunshine i think.
HOpe you are all well.

It's quite gloomy here this morning, hope it brightens up soon.
AR, sorry to hear that you got a BFN, but fingers crossed that it was just too early to test. Enjoy your swim.
H is home tonight. Not sure if I've ov'd or not ( had some cramps and twinges but no real cm, which I ALWAYS get) but we'll be dtd tonight just in case!
Hi to all who follow

AR - It's difficult not to test isn't it? It does become an addiction!!
Figaro - Hopefully you haven't missed OV.
AFM - Still nothing to report. My temp shot up this morning but I have a bit of a cold so not sure if that could make a difference? Otherwise looking forward to the weekend as its my friends hen do spa day!

fig - Hopefully you haven't missed ov. It's so hard to know. I get really strong cramps which i always notice when not TTC but when i am TTC and analysing how i feel each day it suddenly becomes harder to pinpoint!
MrsV - i think being ill only changes your temp if you have a fever. If it stays up for next ffew days though that'd mean a shift.
The BFN doesn't bother me at all. It would have done at the start of TTC but i know i don't get BFPs until very late on. Hence i buy IC tests at a few £ for a huge pack, or i'd go bankrupt.

AR it's SO hard to know!
Mrs V, hope your cold goes quickly.
TBH I'm not really bothered this cycle. Just waiting for my next CD1 so that I can finally start playing with my new CBFM toy

The MDer i'm going for coffee with today is lending me her CBFM so we can experiment with them together next cycle fig!

Hurrah! It's crazy how excited I am to pee on yet more sticks
06/06/2013 at 09:11
Thanks AR. It that case its confusing as my OPK was negative yesterday and I thought the temp shift occurred after O?

POASer Addicts of the world - Get this, I even have peesticks for my diet ha!! (ketostix)
Today is day 1 of my Exante diet aka from hereon in as the Fertility Queen diet. That will be me by the end of the year. :D
Its also the first day of me thinking about my cycle at all as being just back from my hols I haven't been near a thermometer or peestick at all this cycle and voila its CD19!
Had a wee twinge of the left ovary last night, will be payng attention to my CM over the next wee while I think but its never been a big sign for me.

AR you sound pretty chilled out that's good - so funny you've become a POAS addict again in the space of a few days, thatnk goodness for IC's! Have a lovely coffee and CBFM gathering session.
Figaro fingers crossed for OV and definitely no harm in DTD tonight - especially as you've been away! Boo on the house hunting though (from the other thread) sure lots will pop up though soon - it is defintiely a buyers market.
Mrs V snap I'll be at a spa day hen do on sat - so looking forward to the relaxation and may treat myself to a fancy massage will see how the pennies are looking.
Good news on DTD Monnie - fingers crossed.
TT good luck with the diet - what does it involve? Good that you've managed to ahve a proper break and the cycle is going quickly, be testing time before you know it.
AFM not much in the way of reporting for me, shall try and jump H tonight if I have time with packing and then just waiting until weekend after next to see if AF arrives. Got the hen do to look forward to and then a busy week with work and friends so lots to keep me busy. Also only 4 weeks until H is off so we're planning some nice bits for the week we have off beginning of July.

Grif, its one of those cereal bars, Milkshakes and soups diets, it also has porrige and pasta carbonara. 600 cals a day :o
I am V overweight though so needs must.
Good luck wtih your DTD.

mrsV - OPKs can be unreliable and some pepople dont get on with them even when ovulating etc normally. See how your temps go for the next few days
moonie - always satisfying when the lines pop up on your chart isn't it!
tt - yay to more pee sticks!! Good luck with the diet.
grif - i'm relaxed about the bfn as i know it doesn't mean anything. I wish i could relax with TTC in general, especially as i'm only a week in! But i like to be in control! Being busy in this half of the cycle is always a good thing.

Quick post just to say that my OPK today was pretty near to positive so tried a clearblue one and got a smiley!!! So happy.... must get DTD now!!
Monnie - Good news about your OV as well :)
06/06/2013 at 20:08
AR - thanks for starting the thread, anything goes for anyone though - if you don't see one, just start one. Sorry for the BFN but, as you said, you weren't expecting anything different though. Still got fingers tightly crossed for you.
Fig - have fun with H tonight!!!! How funny would it be if you didn't even get to start using your CBFM?!?
Mrs V - hi lovely, yay to smiley face - hope you've jumped on H already!!!!
Monnie - I'm so pleased for you lovely - hope you have a speedy 2ww with the perfect result at the end!!!
TT - lucky you getting to pee on more sticks!!!!
Grif - hope you're feeling ok today lovely? Have fun with H tonight!!!!
AFM - nothing much to report from me. Not even going to mention work!!!! Got my sisters spa break for her Hen on Sunday so I'm just finishing off the last bits and pieces for it. Already had 2 drop out this week and another 1 decide they are now going to stay over despite saying they weren't before and 1 of the ones who dropped out now says they might come but will leave it until nearer the time to decide. The joys. Anyways, I've got my Nearly Newlyweds Quiz all sorted and a Willy Hoopla game in reserve incase the mood seems right for a drinking game.
