Trying to conceive

I've not started one of these posts before - but couldn't see one so hope it's ok...
Hope you've all had a good weekend?
Congrats to Gavi!
Afm, as usual, ttc is driving me mad! I had cramps nearly all of last week and was expecting the usual spotting to start before AF which was due yesterday. No spotting last week - which I suppose is good as it might be the B6 I'm taking working. No sign of AF til this morning, and just some slight spotting. I just want it to arrive properly so I can count cd1 and get going for the next cycle. I think I'm going to get a CBFM and give it a try...

These weekly threads are confusing - I posted in the old one!
I am hoping this B6 is working for you! - I hope she arrives quickly for you so that you can get onto the next cycle.. Good luck with the CBFM - Let us know how you get on with it.
AFM - I tested this morning and got a BFN I am 18dpo (guesswork so could be more or less) and with Jack I got my positive at 19dpo, I would assume that I am not going to get one tomorrow.. so just waiting on AF to arrive and so we can get on with the next cycle.
Hope everyone else is okay :) Hugs to all that need them and fingers crossed for ladies in the 2ww!

Hello lolabhope af arrives soon so you can get on with things. What is b6 meant to do? This is my 2nd time ttcing but last time we just went with the flow so im pretty clueless about most things.
Hello cc. Sorry its bfn but sounds like you have a positive attitude towards it, although you never know until AF arrives. I also posted on the other thread!
Not much to report TTC wise. We should be DTD a lot this week, but yesterday was a sad day think its because we tried relaxing and doing nothing, but it just made us think instead! We will see if we can get in the mood tonight. Went into work this morning to arrange going back in a couple of weeks after maternity leave which was a bit weird, but I'm really looking forward to going back and keeping busy. They've got a nice plan for me and everyone was really welcoming. I'm going back 3rd February now.

Bunny - Sorry to hear that you had a sad day, I can sympathise some what, but can't imagine how difficult it is for you. I am glad everyone was welcoming and hopefully it will keep you busy. Fingers crossed that you will maintain that go with the flow... It's much nicer lol!
13/01/2014 at 13:21
Yes we expect good and bad days and don't think that will ever change as there will always be someone missing. I should think its similar for anyone who has a loss to some degree. Being busy is the plan! I love my job so looking forward to getting back and into a routine. Hopefully we can keep TTC more about the fun. Last time I didn't really join in until 2nd tri threads, but feel this time round because of what happened I might need some more support/silly questions answered when TTC and at the beginning!
13/01/2014 at 13:40
Can totally understand that and feel free to ask questions (Remember no question is silly!) We will offer as much support and handholding as you need!
Glad that you enjoy your job and hope that can keep you occupied. TTC is stressful and keeping it fun and not a chore is better! I have my fingers crossed for you

LolaB - hope af arrives in full swing ready for next cycle to start. Good luck with cbfm.
CC - sorry about the bfn. Really hope you're out of this limbo land soon.
Bunny - sorry for the sad day. I can't imagine what you're going through. Sounds like your work are being really supportive. Like CC said, we're all here for support, handholding and hugs along the way.
AFM - CD14, think I've OV'd yesterday/today, though I wasn't keeping a proper track of things as I don't temp or anything like that. We've dtd plenty this month, pretty sure it's because H has realised when we get that bfp it's likely to me very little dtd for quite a while if my last pregnancy has anything to go by. So I guess it's the 2WW now and just seeing what happens.
13/01/2014 at 14:34
Thank you everyone. Sapphire sounds like you have a good chance this month and that your h is enjoying it!
13/01/2014 at 15:27
Lola - waiting for AF to either show or not show is so frustrating, isn't it? To be honest, I've no idea what B6 is supposed to do but I hope it helps!
CC - hope AF doesn't keep you waiting too much longer so that at least you know where you stand. I'm never really 100% sure when I OV so it's all guesswork for me!
Bunny - I'm sorry to hear yesterday was a sad day, I hope today is a little better? I'm pleased that they were really nice at work. We were lucky enough to conceive quickly with F a couple of years ago so I never really needed to get into the whole TTC business but we're in our 3rd or 4th month this time (I've not really been counting) and as each month passes, I get myself more 'involved' in it all and just end up stressing about it. Going with the flow last time was much easier!
Sapphire - hope the 2ww doesn't drag too much.
AFM, CD14. The spotting I had last week only lasted 2 days again so I guess it's classic OV spotting but who knows. OPK was negative yesterday so we're just DTD and waiting to see what happens. What else can you do!
Hi to anyone who follows x
13/01/2014 at 16:12
Can't do personals as I'm on my phone but hugs and fingers crossed for all those who need it!
AFM CD16, no idea if I ovulated so far this month but we has been trying to DTD at least every others day so we will see! I'm way with work for a fee days next week so hoping that will distract me during the 2WW.
13/01/2014 at 21:17
LolaB: Glad to hear your vit B6 is working, I'm hoping it works for me too. Hope if af is gonna arrive that it does so quickly, although you never know!
CC: You can never rule anything out but I know about not getting your hopes up. Take care
Bunny: Sorry to hear you've had a sad day, I can't even begin to know how it must feel. Good luck x
Sapphire: I know exactly what you mean with regards to dtd when pregnant! Fingers crossed you've done enough this cycle
WG: Glad to hear the spotting didn't last long. Hope you get a positive opk soon, when do you usually ov?
MrsL: Hope you've done enough this month & you have fun being away with work
AFM: I'm now on CD21 & have finally stopped using my opk's this month as it seems like a waste, I'll just have to hope that the Vit B & maybe the agnus castus worked & I ov earlier than expected. Will just have to wait & see. The lovely Spikey Goodness has kindly offered to send me her spare thermometer so I'll be starting temping next month. Then I'm intending to make a doctors appointment as soon as I hit the 6 cycle mark. Take care all x

Weather girl - yes today has been better. Had people from the hospice pop round and take the last of the bits we wanted to donate to them (my mum had bought k a couple of Christmas presents) so they can make use of them and a couple of cheques from my work and my dads work of collections they had done for them. It feels good to get that stuff out of the way. DTD often seems to be the way forward! Glad the spotting wasn't for long.
Hi Mrs l sounds like a plan distracting yourself with work. Sounds like you've done enough to me.
Blackkat - I didn't realise that all these vitamins can affect your body when it comes to ovulation and cycles. When temping does it show when you ov?
14/01/2014 at 10:19
CC - did you test again today? Everything crossed for you
LolaB - would be good if the B6 was helping. Good luck with CBFM. I'm contemplating it too.
Bunny - big hugs. Getting that stuff done must help a bit.
Sapphire - glad to hear you had a good weekend!! Hope the 2ww flies by.
Weathergirl - sounds you have yourself covered anyway. good luck.
MrsL - here's to distraction and the 2ww flying by
BlackKat - hope you've done enough
That's lots of people just into the 2ww then. Hope we get a few more BFPs by the end of January!!
AFM - 6dpo. No symptoms. Oddly this is good news. By now in the last few months I've had spotting and sore boobs and indigestion. I started taking B6 this month and I think that's why I'm not getting those things. Hopefully anyway. I'm also eating much more healthily that I have been of late. AF is due on Monday so hoping I can hold out on testing until then. Just going to keep on munching on Brazil nuts in the mean time!
14/01/2014 at 10:20
(Oh and my temps are waaaay steadier than they have been post-ov. Usually they dip down a lot after ov but generally staying up this month. Horray for B6)
14/01/2014 at 11:39
Sapphire - I have my fingers crossed for you this month sound's like you have done the best you could of done this month :) I hope the 2ww isn't too bad for you.
WG - Have my fingers crossed for you too hoping that it's your month
MrsL - Fingers crossed that you have ovulated!.. Fingers crossed for you in the 2ww!
BK - I am hoping that you have just missed ovulation! Yay to temping! I love it.. It might be worth reading all the bits on FF to get your head around it before you start? It all makes sense when you read the information they have on the site lol! Fingers crossed you wont need to temp next month!
VC - I am glad that B6 seem's to be working for you! Glad that your temps have been steadier too! Fingers crossed for you this month!
AFM - BFN from me this morning and so that would be 19DPO since we last had sex, I am not feeling ill anymore so I am guessing it was all just a big coincidence! Just waiting too see when AF will arrive, Started doing my temps again at 10am it's been all a bit as an when we wake up but are starting too wake up at a proper time now ready for next month! My temp is still quite up so AF's not ready to make an appearance yet!
It's not often that you are wishing for AF to arrive lol!
Hugs to all that need them :)!
14/01/2014 at 13:17
Vc- glad to hear the b6 is helping. I'm hoping the week goes quickly for you so your not tempted to test before Monday.
Cc- still a possibility to get a bfp then? I don't know anything about temping but I'm assuming you know when you oved because of it?
We are waiting in for the doctor, she is doing a home visit to check up on us but we don't know what time she's coming as it's just when she has a spare half hour during her lunch break. Hopefully going to pop into town later for a wander and some fresh air.
14/01/2014 at 13:29
Bunny - Possibly but I am trying too stop focusing on it because it's unlikely now, I guess a few days extra could be a possibility. But going to pretty much rule this cycle out.
I only started temping on the 26th and it appears that could of been ovulation. Mentally I am just going to wait for AF to arrive!.
I hope the DR doesn't keep you waiting a long time.
14/01/2014 at 14:42
Yes I suppose its a good idea to assume it's a no otherwise it's more upsetting. Still waiting for the doctor!
14/01/2014 at 15:04
Yup pretty much, Just want to get on with the next cycle now lol!...
Oh that's not good :( Hope they arrive soon :( I hate waiting in for people!
14/01/2014 at 15:38
Weather Girl – any luck with a positive on the opk yet?
MrsL – fingers crossed you’ve done what needs doing! And that the 2ww goes quickly for you. Being busy will definitely help take mind of it.
BK – fingers crossed you’ve done enough this month too. But sounds like you have a plan otherwise.
Veecee – glad B6 seems to be working for you. Fingers crossed this is your month!
CC – hope your cycle comes to end soon whatever the outcome so you will know what’s going on.
Bunny – hope the dr has arrived by now.
