I hope you don't mind me starting the thread. Its much easier to get online when I'm WFH.
Samaid- Glad that AF has finished and you can now start to get ot the fun bit ;-)
Sally - Glad that you had a lovely holiday and I hope that AF doesn't make an appearance
Tatyo- Sorry that yesterday was CD1. I really do hope that you catch your egg soon.
Lulu- If you're here I hope that you either had to cancel your appointment or it cold go ahead as planned.
Holey - I'm glad we are 2WW buddies. It's like something switches in me when I know there is nothing more I can do this month and I have to sit it out. Hopefully we can keep each other sane.
AFM - Having my first TTC down day today. I'm 99% sure that I've ov'd and I'm also 99% sure that we haven't done enough. I'm away on a girls weekend at the end of this month so that takes us through until the end of Dec before we can start trying again.
Hi to all who follow.

Sorry you're having a down day Peggs - it only takes one of those little guys though, so fingers crossed you've caught. I'm joining the feeling down club today too, but it's probably impending AF hormones that is adding to it. Just feeling a bit disheartened.
Whose watching Masterchef tonight?
Hi to all who follow xx

I'm slowly trying to wean myself away from you lovely lot, but it's so hard! I still don't 100% believe I'm not a DTCer any more. Anyway...
Peggs - Sorry you're having a down day, please accept an internet weirdy hug. You just never know when you've done enough, TTC works in mysterious ways.
Sally - Sending an internet weirdy hug for you too. I don't watch Masterchef but I hope you enjoy it!
Hope everyone else is OK. I'm just counting the hours (and minutes, and seconds...!) until Monday.

Morning Peggs! Sorry you think you may not have done enough but, remember, just the once during the few fertile days can do it! I have my fingers crossed for you!
AFM - AF is being a complete b!tch - horrible cramps plus kept waking up last nite so the insomnia has truly kicked in! Am off to Telford for a management course next week and, by the time I'm back, H will be gone back to Ireland for a stag party so we'll defo miss the fertile period this cycle. I'm throwing myself into our house renovations and my craft stuff for Xmas to take my mind off the dull ache.
04/11/2014 at 10:26
Thanks all - I promised myself I wouldn't beat myself up over it but its really hard.
Sally - TTC is hard work emotionally isn't it and our bodies don't help matters. I will be watching Masterchef tonight. There has been a void in my tv life since GBBO ended.
ST - I love your ticker. What time is your scan on Monday? Everything crossed for you.
Tatyo - Boo on the AF pains. We can miss a cycle together and attempt to keep each other distracted. What christmas crafty things are you thinking of making? I would like to have a go at making some stuff but don't know where to start.
Gah, I'm so slow typing!
Sally - sorry you're down in the dumps too - sending you a huge hug x
ST - how're you doing lovely? Bet this week is feeling even longer than the FET one! Fingers crossed that all goes ok xx
04/11/2014 at 10:29
Hah, missed another message!
Peggs - thanks lovely! I have already worked out that the end of Nov and Dec cycles are all out too due to family staying with us or travel plans so won't be properly in with a chance again until Jan next year I think. Re the Christmas Craft stuff, I'm holding a Charity Craft Fair at work where we are getting people in the company to donate stuff but not many have come forward so far. I'll be making candles, cards, tea light holders and wreaths I think. All papercraft stuff though as that's what I love most!
04/11/2014 at 10:49
Tayto - I can most definitely sympathise on the horrible AF cramps, poor you. Crafty stuff and renovations sound like a great distraction! The last 2 weeks have dragged and I think this last week is going to be The Worst Ever! Other than the fact that time has stopped, I'm doing OK - trying to keep my mind occupied but failing miserably, it's a lot like the 2WW really! Just with the odd splash of dizziness, nausea, headache and AF-style cramps thrown in for fun.
Peggs - It's at 10.50, so I get a bit of a lie in which will be nice!
04/11/2014 at 10:59
ST - Its good that you wont be hanging around all day. You must be so excited to see your little bean.
Tatyo - You will have to share some pictures of what you have made. You've inspired me to give it a go and I've just ordered a christmas craft book from Amazon. I'm the queen of half finished projects though so we will see if I finish any of these. Its a shame you will be out over xmas but hopefully you will be able to have a drink without worrying and look forward to cracking on next year.

Peggs - sorry to hear you're having a down day x
Sally - Fingers crossed for you. I'm so excited for Masterchef tonight!
ST - Roll on Monday for you!
Tayto - Sorry af arrived and she is horrible to you. Hope you're doing ok.
AFM - I'm not too good to be honest. I convinced myself at the weekend this was it for us but of course it wasn't, spotting started on Sunday and still just spotting now need af to arrive as I've re-arranged my appointment for next week. Spent all day Sunday in tears and had to call in sick yesterday as I felt so rubbish, still feeling rubbish now. To add insult to injury a girl at work as told me she is pregnant, I knew it was coming but it still hurts. I might not post much for a while as the pain of ttc is getting worse and I'm struggling, I don't want to be bringing the board down everyday.
Thanks for listening ladies, hopefully I'll be feeling more positive soon xx
04/11/2014 at 11:12
Peggs - I'm still struggling to believe there wil be anything there to be honest!
Lulu - Oh lovely :( I'm so sorry you're having such a rotten time. AF is a cruel little witch at times. It's always hard to deal with announcement at times like this too, I've had to deal with more than I care to count of those so I know exactly how you're feeling. Be kind to yourself, do whatever you need to do - and if you need an understanding ear (eye?) I'm always happy to lend one. I've been where you are for a long time and it sucks x
04/11/2014 at 11:13
Lulu just crashing to send you love and hugs, I'd been looking out for you yesterday and today, taking a step back is probably the right thing to do if you are feeling this way. Good luck for next week, I hope it goes well xxxxx
04/11/2014 at 11:21
I think we've done everything we can this cycle so just waiting now. Had a bit of a kick in the teeth yesterday. Our 17 year old apprentice at work has just found out his girlfriend is pregnant (completely unplanned). They only found out 3 weeks ago and she is due today!
Peggs - hope you feel better soon
Sally - yes I'll be watching master chef. The professionals series is my favourite.
ST - We are all counting down the days for you too!
Tayto - sorry af is being a ***.
Lulu - I'll be thinking of you if you do step away. But don't feel like you're bringing the board down.
04/11/2014 at 11:26
Lulu - Sorry to read your update, just to echo Holey don't feel like you're bringing the board down - you've been a wonderful source of info and support to all of us on here, we'd like to be able to help in any way we can xx
04/11/2014 at 12:59
Another one crashing. Sorry to hear this LuLu, sending you inadequate hugs, this journey is the toughest thing you are likely to face. Maybe some time out from it all would be good for you but we don't need to remind you that we are all here for you. xxx
04/11/2014 at 13:25
Sorry AF is being a cow tayto - gutted you'll miss Nov & Dec though.
Hi ST - roll on Monday! Hope you are ok. x
Holey - professionals is my favourite too!
Hi Claire & Dolly - hope you are both ok.
Lulu - I'm sorry you're feeling so down. Please don't worry that you're bringing the board down - it's what this board is for, to offer support in times of need. You know we'll be thinking of you even if you feel you can't post for a while. Enjoy masterchef tonight! xx
AFM - pinky spots arrived, AF is on her wicked way.
04/11/2014 at 13:36
Thanks so much for your support ladies you are all so lovely. I'll pop back next week if my appointment goes ahead (af hasn't properly arrived so if she doesn't arrive soon I'll have to change it again) and let you know how I get on. I'll probably still lurk though lol! Thanks again I really do appreciate all your kind words xxx
04/11/2014 at 21:15
Hi ladies, just popping in to say sorry for being AWOL for a while and to explain why.... I think that things have gone wrong again and that I've had another mmc. I spoke to the midwife at my surgery yesterday and she spoke to the foetal assessment unit at the hospital today and they've booked me in for a scan but it's not until next Tuesday :-( I should be 8 + 4 by then so I guess at least they'll be able to say for definite either way. I would go privately for a scan in the meantime but I saw the same sonographer the last two times I went and I really can't face seeing her again.... I am going to do my best to keep my mind occupied in the meantime so I hope that you don't mind me lurking/ posting here again!
05/11/2014 at 08:58
Oh Lottie I am so sorry to hear this, can I please ask what makes you think you've had a mmc? Have you had any bleeding? I really hope this is just a scare and nothing more. x
05/11/2014 at 18:21
Hi Claire, I've not had any bleeding but my symptoms pretty much disappeared at the end of last week and I didn't really have many to start with. I woke up last Thursday and just felt that there was nothing there IYSWIM and this is exactly how I felt the last time. I didn't say anything to H for a couple of days as I felt so awful telling him but I cracked on Saturday. I rang the midwife on Monday and she was great but the hospital won't or maybe can't see me until Tuesday. I'm hoping for the best but prepared for the worst so I will be asking for positive vibes early next week!
