Cooper yay to getting too tge good bit hope it passes soon
Afm I think ovulation will hapoen Thursday after a temp drop this morning altho temoed earlier today, but Thursdays good to me managed to DTD every evening sunce sunday so with tinight too the last evening its a good shot! Fingers crossed for us please
Morning Cooper, hope you're well.
Sorry I've been AWOL lately, but with looking for houses/work/PGDE course I simply don't have any spare time at all. I'm off sick today as I have a nasty bug thing, hence being able to pop in and say hi. 14dpo and tested negative with a CBD this morning, pretty gutted to be honest, but still holding on to a tiny bit of hope, as I guess I'm not fully out until my period arrives. I know we have had the occasional very late BFP, so although I'm pretty sure I'm out, there is still that glimmer...I guess there always is until it's CD1, eh?
Feeling a bit down in general tbh. I know we had a break through the summer but we started TTC in July 2012, it feels like forever ago. I remember starting out and thinking that I would probably have an anniversary baby (born May 2013), how naive I was. I know my journey is by no means the longest, or most heartbreaking, but I'm just so over TTC now. I'm also terrified about having the HyCoSy and so am praying that I fall pregnant before my appointment comes through so that I don't need to go through with it, I know that's pathetic, but I get so upset just at the thought of it.
Anyways, sorry to bring the board down. Hope you are all doing well. JJ, keeping everything crossed for you. Rioja we all have first cycle hope *see above BK, congrats again.
Hope I can make it back on later

Missed you CC, you know I have everything crossed for you, x
18/02/2014 at 09:39
Oh Saffron you made me have tears in my eyes reading that.
I am not sure any one can say anything to make you feel better but I have so much crossed for you. Out of everyobe here you deserve tge next BFP I am hoping that your just a late bfp person!
I am not sure what a HyCoSy is but I do hope it doesnt come too that!
Have a massive inadequate internet hug.

Cooper hope ov comes soon for you
CC fingers x for Thursday
Saff hugs to you my lovely, you're not out until AF shows so fx for you still. Hope you feel better soon x
AFM it's cd25, I'm getting impatient now and so close to testing but determined to hold off until Friday. Had a few cramps here and there so maybe AF is on her way who knows? We have to RSVP to a wedding abroad which is in July next weekend and will make up our minds once we know if I'm pg or not this month. I hate waiting!!

Fibgers crossed fir yiu MrsL! Hope too see aBfp
18/02/2014 at 10:27
Thanks CC I want this week to be quick!
18/02/2014 at 10:31
Me too.. it will drag now lol
18/02/2014 at 10:34
Cooper - bring on the fun part!!
CC - impressive sounding work!
Saffron, I'm sorry it was negative but I would also have that glimmer of hope. Fingers crossed it doesn't come to scary things but we'll all be here for you if it does.
MrsL - I think holding off is a good idea, if you can. Everything crossed for ya.
AFM - 7 dpo. A bit nauseous but I think that's becoming normal for my at this stage. I seem to have got a bout of thrush which is quite unpleasant. At least it's distracting!

I've just posted on CC's thread for lurkers, not sure if anyone here will remember me I started posting last year but stopped at I was finding ttc a bit stressful along with some other family stresses! Been lurking the last few weeks and after CC's thread it seems now is a good time to start posting again!
Cooper - Getting to the good bit!
CC - Sounds like you are giving yourself a good chance, good luck!
Saffron - Hope it is just too early to test, fingers crossed for you. Sorry you're feeling down.
MrsL - Not long to wait now fingers crossed!
veecee - Another one not long to wait, fingers crossed for you as well!
AFM - Well I am now on cycle 8 of ttc but due to various reasons only 3 out the 7 past cycles have we really given ourselves a chance so I guess I should say I'm on cycle 4, I started using OPKs last month and got a positive a day before getting ewcm so I think I have been tracking ov correctly. My cycles have been a bit odd the last year, I've had some short 24 day cycles and I've started getting spotting 4 days before AF which is really annoying. I started taking vit b complex in December and last cycle was back to 28 days but still with 3 days spotting, I'm hoping it is now starting to kick in so I will have less spotting each month but we will see! I went to the docs about my spotting as it has only been happening for just under a year, she was lovely, said it was probably nothing but sent me for blood tests and referred me for a scan. The bloods came back all normal, I'm just waiting to have the scan now but think I am going to have to change the appointment due to work.
Currently now cd 7 expecting to ov next week.
Sorry that was really long! Hi to all who follow!
18/02/2014 at 11:51
Veecee - Sorry to hear about your thrush I have only had it once so feel your pain hope it clears up soon and then you get a BFP atthe end of it
Lulu its so nice to have you back, glad I made that post now! I hope the scan goes well and they can work out why you are spotting, good news your bloods are fine tgough!
I hope the next few days go fast until you ovulate and hope you get a real chance this month!
Fingers crossed for MrsL and VC!
Lulu, welcome back. I hope you don't have to be here too long, x
Thanks everyone, it means so much that I can let it all out on here now and again. Still no sign of AF, and dafty with every hour that goes by I get more hopeful again. Bah!
18/02/2014 at 12:03
Saffron weare all here for each other and you rant, cry, what ever you need to do when ever you need too :)
You are not out until AF arrives so I would be exactly the same in your position.
18/02/2014 at 12:19
Definitely let it out Saffron, I think we all go through the same feelings, really hope this is your month.
Glad you posted that thread CC, feels better being able to post about everything with people who understand, I had the famous 'just relax' comment from a friend who is pregnant last week, I wanted to scream lol! She got pregnant without even trying so she really doesn't understand, I know she was only trying to be nice though bless her.
18/02/2014 at 12:22
Oh lovely of her lol.. some people really are just insensitive about TTC. I do hope you made a comment back to her lol!
18/02/2014 at 13:19
Saffron make sure you take a couple of strong painkillers and a diazpem to relax you before the procedure.
Its no secret my HSG was horrific (similar procedure and instruments) but it got us our bfp end of Dec. We were due to start fertility treatment in Jan and I cried and prayed every night we would get our bfp first. I totally put it down to the HSG - not that I ever want to go through one again but it was certainly a means to the end goal.
I had an operation in Dec and was very stressed. We only managed to dtd 3 times between HSG and op and as I could never pinpoint ovulation (in fact I thought I wasnt ovulating & would need clomid as no ov stick ever gave me the lines in just under 2 years) I had no idea how close or far away we were.
It really was a miracle - and they do happen, exactly when you need them the most.

Cooper – yay for reaching the best part.
CC – lots of fingers crossed for you.
Saffron – oh I’m so sorry that things are getting to you. Even without ttc you have a lot on your plate at the moment with everything going on. You deserve to get your bfp soon, I really hope it happens for you.
MrsL – fingers crossed for that bfp for you (and that Friday comes around quickly for you)
VC - oh no, hope the nausea passes. More fingers crossing for you.
Lulu – I hope the scan goes well and that you aren’t here too long.
AFM – sorry I’ve been quiet past few days. Had a busy few days with MIL here so not had chance to pop on properly. I’m CD13 today and not totally sure when I will ov, it could be any day really. I’ve not been doing that great at getting into the routine of taking my temp, mainly as M has decided to sleep in a bit later than normal and with H being on half term, so my chart is a bit all over the place (especially having had a few drinks the past couple of nights). So shall carry on and see if I can get more into the routine of it the next few days.
18/02/2014 at 16:07
Sapphire - fingers crossed you can get into a routine with it soon, ifnot maybe try OPK if thats easier for you lol
18/02/2014 at 16:47
I'm thinking of setting an alarm just so I get the temp taken then record it later when I wake properly, in the hope that I can settle into it properly and see how it goes. If it doesn't work out then we're only on cycle #2, so I'm not in any rush.
