Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
30/09/2014 at 10:22
Well you know I said I wouldn't test again, well I did! This time it was the faintest line and when I say faint I'm not lying, to the point I couldn't really get excited because it may well have been an evap line. The only thing it has done is put me in this little bubble of hope that maybe just maybe something could be good here, and this might be the thing that gets me through the rest of this week. I've since binned the remaining tests so even if I was tempted there's nothing I can do.
Gosh this is tough.
Hi to all who follow.

Ohhh Claire, that's great - I really hope that's the first sign for you. What's your plan next? I'm sorry it's tough - wish there was something inspiring I could say to help. Have a huge weirdy internet hug from me
some posts from yesterday because I missed a few!
lovelygirl - hope AF stays away for you. What's the doc appt for? Road trip to Scotland will be nice! I got pressies early because I him one of his early too - it's like our 'tradition'!
Lisa Moo - Sorry to hear your AF hasn't shown up yet, keep the faith - it will be along soon. There was a post on here some time ago about PCOS & TTC and iirc, everyone with pcos managed to get pregnant even though it might take some time. RE your cousin, it is hard to be happy in those circumstances; I have no advice, I struggle with it - even with people I barely know announcing their pregnancies!
AFM - H forgot my birthday today - 'nuff said.

Gosh Claire can't say I blame you for testing - I'm glad it's helped you a bit though, hopefully it'll keep you going until test day. I have everything crossed it wasn't an evap line. x
Happy birthday tayto! Hope you have a lovely day, enjoy your meal tonight. What pressies have got?
AFM - thanks for the compliments on the pics - I did an order for some prints for pics from the wedding/honeymoon/randoms etc, it's been a while so I ended up with about 800 on the order (they had a sale on!) - anyway, I received them yesterday and they only ended up duplicating the order, all last night I spent sorting through them into 2 piles. I'd order a couple of some of them to give to Mums and so on, so for some pictures I have about 8 copies. Eep.
30/09/2014 at 11:15
I cross posted (again!) - he forgot your birthday tayto?! I sincerely hope he's in the dog house.
30/09/2014 at 11:19
Tayto - Arghhh! What are they like!! I'd be so cross! He better make it up to you, do you think he's planning something and wants you to pretend he's forgotton?
SallyLou - You looked beautiful! I hope you haven't had to pay for the extra copies?
Thanks ladies, I'm not going to test now until Friday hopefully the FR will have arrived by then as I've binned all the internet cheapies so even if I'm tempted, which I will be, I can't test. Still not feeling a great deal of symtoms, have a bit of lower back pain and suddenly had an out break of spots but you just can't tell with this process xx
30/09/2014 at 11:44
Claire - aww thanks! No, I just paid for the original order! No idea what to do with all the extras but will pop them away somewhere! I guess the symptoms are so hit and miss in early pregnancy anyway they'd not be realiable. Your brain must be in overdrive. Are you working this week?
30/09/2014 at 11:51
Sally - Well that's a relief, I am sure they will come in handy. Yes I'm in work, it's the best place for me otherwise I'd be sat at home driving myself potty!
30/09/2014 at 11:57
Claire - Hope the next few days fly by; remember symptoms will be much less this early so don't worry that you're not getting much yet. I have everything crossed that this is a BFP and will be a good sticky bean for you xx Hope work is ok? Are the meds ok with you now?
Sally - OMG, I'd go nuts if that happened to me! How big are they? If they are 6*4 size, you could pop some of the extras into the thank you cards maybe?
30/09/2014 at 12:08
tayto - thank you! No one else seemed to understand my issue! It's nice to have the extras in fairness, but they weren't in the same orders so it was a complete faff to separate them. Brill idea on the thank you's though, I have a stack on my desk waiting to be sealed/stamped so will add some in those.
30/09/2014 at 12:29
Or, you could do a large frame for yours and H's parents and do a kind of a collage thing? It'd be unusual and nicer than the usual single pics in frames perhaps? We ordered too much of ours (our own fault) and now I'm using them in my scrapbook which, more than one year post wedding, is still not even started!
30/09/2014 at 13:53
Just been lurking and wanted to say good luck for ClaireLou on Friday. I really hope it was a positive and not an evap line. Fingers crossed
30/09/2014 at 14:07
Tayto - Yes I've been ok on the meds thank you. I think my body is just used to it now.
Mummysimpson - That's really sweet of you thank you so much.
30/09/2014 at 15:10
Claire- ooh exciting very brave to bin the tests - I would end up bin dredging the following day - keeping everything crossed for you I too am being indecisive on test day choice
Tayto - happy birthday! I didn't forget honest Guv. What presses did you get? how can he forget after giving them to you early?
Sally Lou - Good news on the pics if a bit excessive oops I am sure grannies will be happy to a few extras
Hello to Mummy Simpson
AFM - well no symptoms here, been at the doctors it appears i have a systemic infection most likely from the first bug i caught with a chest infection on top, which is why all my joints hurt and my tendons keep getting inflamed. Got antibiotics for 10 days and then back to the doctors in two week. No drinking for the first half of the holiday AF or no AF.
Which day would you test my period range between 25 and 28 day cycles do due either tomorrow or saturday at the latest, ov +ve on opk days 13 and 14 and -ve by day 15, so would you test wednesday, Thursday, friday or Saturday or wait until definitely late Sunday or be a POAS addict and every day?
30/09/2014 at 19:38
Hi everyone. I've not been about much recently but just popped on and saw Claire's update. I hope Friday comes quickly for you - keeping everything crossed for you that this is your time x
Will try my best to drop in on the chat threads again later this week.
30/09/2014 at 21:35
Just popping on to say happy birthday tayto and claire I've got everything crossed for you for friday!
Will hopefully be able to post better tomorrow as I'm on site and will have time to kill
30/09/2014 at 21:42
Claire_Lou - I would have tested as well as I don't possess enough willpower not to! I hope that the next few days go as quickly as possible and that you can keep busy to occupy your mind. I am keeping everything crossed that you have a strong line on Friday X
Tayto - Happy birthday! I hope that you had a lovely time tonight but how the heck did your H forget your birthday?!
SallyLou - I logged on quickly last night and saw your beautiful pictures :-) We made a photobook for our parents but never got around to making one for us. We don't even have a single photo printed and it's been 15 months since we got married. I must sort that out soon!
Lovelygirl - I am a POAS addict so I'd be POAS! I find it easier to prepare for AF if I have had a BFN rather than just waiting IYKWIM
AFM - I am on CD 19. Still no news from my doctor about a referral. It's been two weeks since my appt so I'll wait another week before seeing if he's forgotten about me!
30/09/2014 at 21:43
Sorry, missed you there Holey! Hello
01/10/2014 at 06:53
Oh Claire, everything crossed for you. Any update?
01/10/2014 at 09:17
Morning everyone, well it looks like it's tentative BFP for me, tested this morning definitely a line and not a squinter this time so stronger than yesterdays, but it's so early that I can't celebrate especially with what happened last time. I've decided not to test again now until Sunday. I've ran out of tests so this makes me happy. Hopefully it will sink in a bit more then but even still I can't really relax until at least my 7 week scan. For now though things are definitely moving in the right direction and it's all I can ask for. Thank you so much all of you for the lovely supportive words, you've all been brilliant, but may need more vibes than ever now ladies. xxxx

Sorry I've not been around this week, work has been really busy.
Claire, so pleased for you this morning, I hope this is it for you and this bfp is mega sticky, sending you all the vibes in the world xxx
