Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
04/02/2014 at 04:24
I'm pulling an all-nighter to do this stupid essay, so I'm still up. Needed a little break so thought I would kick the thread off.
I got the most amazingly positive IC OPK last night, and thankfully Hs sore head didn't make another appearance, so hopefully we are covered. In line with SMEP (Sperm Meets Egg Plan, in case anyone doesn't know) we still need to DTD today, tomorrow and Friday...just to be sure. Poor H is going to be knackered, I tell him that I can't go on top in case gravity works against his swimmers
Hopefully by the time you all read this I have made good progress with my essay and gone to bed, although I suspect I will be writing all day today also. Only bummer is that I can't temp at 7am as usual as I'll still be up, so unless I get another positive IC OPK today then I won't be able to pinpoint OV. Oh well, we will just keep at it and hope for the best!

Hope that essay went well! As someone who did a pgce & then another 3 trs studying, i can fully empathise with the all nighter! Im out this month as snowboarding when period due & dont want to risk being pregnant & learning that.

Ah, yes, it's the PGDE that I'm doing too! Sorry that you're out, but I hope you have an amazing time boarding! My H can board, but I prefer to stick to skis...even then I'm alright at best

Saffron I hope you are heading to your bed soon! How on earth are you staying awake!?
Rio - I think that's very sensible! I can't do anything like that, I've got very poor coordination! Have you been before?
Not much to report here. Second day back at work and I quite enjoyed it yesterday. I'm going to do some planning today and maybe go out on duty so the children can see me.

Glad you are settling in at work ok bunny, are you a teacher too?
I actually don't feel too bad...considering, I reckon I'll last all day and then have a early (6-7pm) night...either that or I'll have an hour or two nap later this morning. To be fair, I have slept a ridiculous amount lately, maybe I was banking it especially for this!

Staff - glad you NAND ah managed to DTD this months looking good for you so far
Rio - wow snowboarding sounds amazing, I'd be awful at it haha my balance is so bad!
Bunny - glad you enjoyed being back at work, hope today goes well too.
Afm - cd11 already. After DTD every day since Thursday we haven't been able to since Sunday and h is out with his friends tonight, so Wednesday or Thursday is our next chance, so hopefully we won't have missed ov, I've no idea when I ovulate!
Have a good day all x

MrsL - I have no idea what you were trying to say damn autocorrect!
JJ - from personal experience, when in doubt FF will always date OV from your last pos OPK, so if it's unsure it will call today OV day. Keeping everything crossed for you!
04/02/2014 at 08:56
Hahahah Saff I hate autocorrect! It was meant to say glad you and your H managed to DTD, this cycle is looking good for you so far x
04/02/2014 at 08:57
JJ I'm trying not to have to temp etc just yet it's in your third cycle so want to see how it goes without first. We've agreed if we have no luck later in the year then well start temping x

Saffron - I don't know how you do it! Hope the essay is done and you can nap soon. Glad all is on track with the SMEP.
Rio - have a great time. My OH has been snowboarding, but I am a total clutz so know I would break something. Added to the fact I'm lazy and love the sun, he's given up trying to get me to go!
Bunny - glad work went well.
Mrs L - hopefully ov is later this week then!
JJ - Fingers crossed for you.
Afm, cd 23 and 5dpo acccording to cbfm and ff. Bit confused as cbfm is still asking me for sticks every morning, despite having 4 lows in a row now. It's blimmin expensive!!
04/02/2014 at 10:40
Gosh lot's of replies already this morning!
Saffron - Well done for staying up all night! Remember the day's well when I was at uni! Glad you managed to DTD and can stick to SMEP lol!
RIO - Hope you have a great time!
Bunny - Glad to hear work has gone well!
MrsL - Hopefully you will ovulate on the days you can DTD!
JJ - Glad to hear you have ovulation covered. Fingers crossed for you BFP this month!
LolaB - No idea about CBFM, but yay to being 5dpo fingers crossed for you this month!
AFM - Not much to report I am CD6 and Hubby's home tonight until Thursday morning so going to get some ovulation DTD practice in as he puts it! Temp's still fairly low, I don't feel like I am sure what's causing it, Don't feel like I am sleeping any better or the heatings not on... it's strange...maybe the B6?
04/02/2014 at 11:08
MrsL, I get caught out by autocorrect loads too!
Lola, how confusing?! Hope it stops asking for those pricey sticks soon!
CC, I've read that sometimes after a pregnancy the body kind of regulates itself maybe your cycles will just be more steady from now on?
AFM - can't sleep! Argh! Lying on the couch with a bowl of fruit watching junk tv
04/02/2014 at 11:13
Saffron - Maybe that would be quite nice! We will see :)
Bless you :(, Hope you can get some sleep soon!

Hello all - busy on here already!
Saffron, hope you got some great work done. I could never do all-nighters. Hubby still does them sometimes. I have endless respect.
Rio - enjoy the holidays!
Bunny - that's great to hear work has been going well. You're being so strong.
MrsL - fingers crossed that'll be you covered
JJ - excellent work! well done
LolaB - that is annoying. I hope the 2ww flies by
CC - hmmm. b6 hasn't changed my temps. still good and erractic. hopefully Saff is right
AFM - cd13, another high on cbfm but FF says fertile period might start tomorrow. relaxation efforts worked last night anyway and we'll go for as much dtd for the next ten days anyway, at least every other day. i've a book launch followed by dinner to celebrate this evening so no chance today.
04/02/2014 at 11:41
Sounds promising VC, enjoy!
04/02/2014 at 12:02
I have no idea lol.. Maybe it's just my body being mean again lol!... ah well!
Sounds good Veecee... lets hope you can do as much DTD as possible!
Has anyone seen AJ recently? AJ if your lurking.. I hope your okay!

Sorry coming to this a bit late again. Yes saffron I'm a primary school teacher. Hope you've all had a good day. I was meant to be going to an exercise class tonight but I can't really be bothered!

Hi ladies! Thanks for thinking of me CC, sorry no personals, im not feeling well but think i know why my temps have been weird. Ive been in and out of hospital since october with gallstones, had my gallbladder removed but they can never get all the stones and it keeps going wrong. Anyway turns out there's probably a stone stuck so I have a fever and the start of jaundice. i have to have blood tests on thursday and depending on how bad the results are either go into hospital again or my next op appointment a lot sooner. It certainly explains alot!
04/02/2014 at 17:52
How scary aj but at least they've found a reason and i hope it can be sorted quickly xx
