Fabulous news about OB and Mrs V! I'm so very pleased for them both
Not much to report from me. 15dpo which is definitely the longest LP I've ever had. More than enough time for an egg to make itself comfy...we just have to catch one now! I'm feeling a lot more crampy today and just waiting for AF to arrive now. And then it's CBFM time!! Hurrah :)
Hi to everyone who follows, fx for some more exciting announcements soon!

Morning - what a fantastic start to the day! Fabulous news for two ladies who deserve a very uneventful next 8 months xxx
Figaro that's good news about your LP - and you never know you may have had a false BFN but at least if AF arrives you have your shiny new toy - if you get your BFP in the next 4 months (which I hope you do!) you may have a potential buyer when the boy is back.
AFM nothing much to report but did want to ask a couple of daft CD and AF questions:
I started AF on sunday late morning - heavy enough for a tampon straight away, ashould I call that CD1 of the Monday morning?
Sunday and Monday were pretty normal, few cramps and a medium flow but by yesterday AF had pretty much dissapeared to soem spotting and brown blood - is this OK or should I be worried?
Never thought I'd be hoping for heavier periods ha ha!!

I would call Sunday CD1. I think it's only when AF arrives late into the evening that you call the next day CD1. Your AF sounds a lot like mine. Are you still spotting today? Normally I only get 2 sometimes 3 days of full on bleeding and then the rest is brown spotting.
Where is your H going? I must have missed it/have a memory like a sieve! If my CBFM turns out to be lucky you are more than welcome to it when I'm done :) x

Morning, didn't get a chance to even browse on here yesterday so lovely to log on to such exciting news.
Caved and tested yesterday morning and BFN not a surprise and now waiting on AF today. Got a thermometer and opks already to go this cycle, quite looking forward to getting a grasp of what is actually going on in my body.
H off away today and after a 3.30am bedtime cause of an amazing Robbie Williams concert i am still buzzing but will probably be flagging by lunch so a quiet day planned despite having the day off work.
Fingers crossed for loads more BFPs.

So pleased we are starting to get some BFPs. It was too quiet for a while around here!!
Fig - yay to a longer LP. It's not over yet though lovely, no AF can mean more than just an extended LP.
grif - Defnielt sunday for CD1. I shouldn't worry about the odd flow. I have really varying AF lengths. If it was massively shorted and lighter than normal then i'd be testing as with the BFP before P i had 3-4 days of what i thought was AF but an odd light one. My temps then went abck up and i so i tested and got a BFP!
AFM - CD12 here. Still a low on CBFM which i have to say i was now expecting to show highs. I did some googling and a lot of people seem to say it can take awhile to get to know your body. So i'm not relying on it 100% and still temping and expecting to over the weekend. I wouldn't want to wait for highs before DTD as i don't want to miss an opportunity. I wonder if the monitor will tie in with my temps. Wednesday if a non-work day for me so P and i have baby music this morning but not much else planned.

PP- missed you there!! RW sounds fab, i have a couple of friends who went and said it was awesome. Sorry about the BFN but it's not over until AF arrives (i'm an eternal optimist in case no one has noticed yet!!). Exciting to get going with temping etc. Shout if you have any questions.
19/06/2013 at 09:09
AR I'll be watching for updates from you as I was wondering if I should invest in a thermometer and start temping next cycle too, but wondered if that was overkill. I still might go and get one today, just so that I can check that the CBFM is actually working. Hope you have a nice day off!
19/06/2013 at 09:17
I LOVE temping and highly recommend it. A thermometer is only a few £, nothing compared to all the pee sticks etc and it's the only way to actually confirm you are ov-ing. But then i'm a throw everything at it sort of person
19/06/2013 at 09:19
Right, you've convinced me! One thermometer added to today's shopping list
19/06/2013 at 12:18
What a lovely day on MD today with the two BFPs.
Figaro - My new thermometer arrived today, I got it on Amazon
Grif - I would also call Sunday CD1
PP - Sorry about the BFN, but I hope Robbie cheered you up a bit
AR - I've also read that the CBFM takes a cycle or two to figure you out, I have all my temping kit now so expect millions of questions from me!
AFM - I think I'm 14dpo, but it could be 13, maybe its even 12! I can't wait to get some charts and get some control! Its CD26 and my last cycle was 26 days. I'm still expecting AF very soon, breasts still sensitive. I caved and POAS last night and it was BFN which I was expecting.
I'm not up to anything exciting work is busy, must go get some lunch now!
19/06/2013 at 12:27
Thanks all - you're all stars!
Fiagor yes there's still some spotting now but not enough for anything, glad it's normal!
H is in the air force so off out of area for 4 months in just over 2 weeks! So unless we catch this month it would be an immaculate conception so I'll be back trying in Nov time. Will probably still hang around the thread though if you'll all have me. Thanks for that chick!
Morning PP - sorry about the BFN but glad you had fun at Robbie - enjoy your chilled out day.
Thanks AR - It wasn't out of the ordinary I think I was just gearing myself up for the flow becoming heavier when I came off the pill - maybe I'm just lucky (and possibly just jinxed myself for next month!) I've heard that about the CBFM too but if you're dtd regularly you're doing all you can, enjoy the class with P today.
I'm also going to start temping while H is away just to get to know what's going on - will see if I stick to it though
DollyP Hi and thank-you - sorry about the BFN but it could still be early days to test, it's not over until AF arrives so fingers crossed for you xx
19/06/2013 at 13:29
I'm at work and on my phone so just popping on to say hi and hope everyone is having a good day.
Hope to be back later xx
19/06/2013 at 18:53
Hey all. Hope you've had a good one??
Figaro - you never know, AF might not arrive and you might not get to crack open the CBFM!!!! Happy thermometer shopping too.
Grif - hey. As others said I'd count Sunday as CD1. Also I on,y get about 3/4 days medium flow then just a kind of brown discharge for the rest. AF lasts a total of 6 days for me including the spotting on the last day.
PP - sorry for the BFN but yay to Robbie Williams. Hope you've survived the day and haven't fallen asleep!!!
AR - hope the CBFM starts showing a high for you soon xx
DP - fingers still crossed for you here xx
AFM - night off tonight so that's always good. I'm catching up on some tv and chilling. Got 101 things to do but I feel I need some down time too so I'm taking it. Went shopping after work for some birthday pressies and stuff for hols so I'm organised for the next few weeks. 2 weeks on Friday until my sisters wedding and 1 week on Friday until her next hen night. It's all go just now with weddingy things, hen night arrangements and holiday prep so it's a busy time but its good.
