Hello all. I have been MIA for a while but am back now. Nothing really to report as there is no way we insemmed at the right time so just waiting for AF to arrive next week and will try again. 6dpo ( i think as not really paying attention)
Do we have any more testers this week?

Hey vikster. I think we are running pretty low on TTC/MTTC ladies now! Most seem to have got bfp's in the last couple of months - which although lovely does make for a very quiet TTC board. Sorry to hear you are out this month - good luck for next time x

I'm still loitering here! I hope noone minds?
Vik - Sorry the timing was wrong - are you 100% sure? How many goes did it take with S?
PS - how are you doing? x

PS yes it has gone quiet, but its all good news for the BFP'ers :-)
Rod - can never be 100% sure, but insemmed 3 days before OV so very unlikely. K caught first time with three insems around ov so she was very lucky.

hello all - Vikster, that must be very frustrating. Sorry.
Purplestar what are you up to ttc-wise?
Rod - have you done more tests?
AFM - 6dpo and trying to stay very calm after cramps and tincy bit of spotting just now. We did enough dtd wise and I'm horsing into brazil nuts, pinneapple and ginger tea having read that all can help thicken your uterus for implantation. The spotting has sent my hopes soaring. don't know how long I'll manage to hold before testing - I think if I make it to Sunday it will be a miracle even though I know how early that is.

Vikster - Sorry it was too early roll on next cycle for you!
Hi Purple Star!
Hi Rod good to hear from you!
Veecee - Fingers crossed for you! I hope you manage to hold out on testing a bit longer!
Nothing to add from me just wanted to pop on and say hi! x

I heard pineapple can soften your cervix veecee and you shouldnt eat too much when preg - not sure what it means for when you are trying to get preg tho?
I havent tested since yesterday morning. I'm too scared it will be negative now :( I'm driving myself insane worrying.
Planning to do another CBD on Sunday by which time hopefully the numbers will have gone up and I should feel a little better.
VIk you are still in with a shot, The swimmers hang around for a while up there so fingers crossed! First time is very lucky! x

Both brazil nuts and pineapple are high in selenium which helps thicken uterine lining. But pineapple also does what you saw so a small amount is recommended.
Understandable about the testing but tomorrow will be 48 hours so hcg levels should have doubled.

I'm here. Bit miffed since AF was due to have gone by today but somehow has returned. I suppose nothing is as normal as hoped post m/c. Anyway, CD6 and passed time hanging new curtains in the dining room. My life is SO exciting. Actually, yesterday was hard, a month post m/c and I don't think I'm as over it as I hoped. Feeling quite alone still TTC so nice to have others to chat to here xx

I'm here, apols for no personals, \m next to baby in the dark on laptop and cannot see keyboard well!
AF appears to have left on CD3, which is really very short for me and especially considering I've just come off the pill so should have a longer period? I've not been great at taking it and we have been DTD, so now i,m wondering if could be pg and the bleeding is just from coming off the pill? Or is that totally crazy haha.
