Trying to conceive

Up and about early despite my day off, toddlers don't do lay ins!! Got baby music group this morning and then hopefully going to visit my Grandma for a coffee this afternoon. She dotes on P and hasn't seen her walking yet so that should be nice. Got to check she's around first, she's 86 and has a busier social life than anyone i know!
Nothing exciting TTC wise, CD5 so dull end of things. I do get to start using my shiny new CBFM tomorrow though so that's exciting!!
Hope all those of 2ww aren't driving themselves too mad yet!!

I know what you mean about Grandma's having busier social lives than anyone else! Mine is exactly the same, she's never in! It will be lovely if you can catch her so she can see your lo walk :)
I'm 13dpo today and I think I might start using my opk's at the weekend but as I'm getting a bit bored or staring at them, I might start a bit earlier with the IC ones :) I'm voluntarily going for a run with H tonight, how amazing is that?! I think it will break me, but I need to do it!
Hope you're all doing ok and have a happy hump day!

I'm confused GoM... why would you need to start opks if you are 13dpo?

hi ladies, just a quickie as about to go into a meeting!
im 9dpo and temps rose again this morning, so FX !!!

AR, hope you have a nice time with your Grandma (if she's in!)
GOM, good luck with the run!!
AFM, I have very mild cramps and backache starting on and off so AF will be along in about a week's time. Not overly concerned because then I get to crack out the CBFM. Woohoo!
Hope everyone else who follows is doing well. Anyone in the 2WW caved and tested yet??

Morning guys, a quick check in cause I am on my phone and meant to be working, surely eating breakfast and looking on here and Facebook classes as working!!
Nothing exciting here think I am 6dpo and am not being very patient, the waiting is killing me, and despite knowing it is too early for symptoms I am desperately trying to symptom spot while preparing myself that this is only the 2nd cycle of trying and just because we covered all bases (so to speak) doesnt mean we will be lucky this time.
Any advice on early testing guys? Will be 10dpo on Sunday (fathers day) which sort of makes me want to test but I am worried about a false negative. Husband off away with the lads a week today ( the day AF due) so would like to know either way before he goes. Is it best to put my super patient pants on and maybe wait till Tuesday morning ( day before AF) would mean we could celebrate/drown our sorrows before he goes? Or shall we give in and test on Sunday?
Happy hump day and hope the rest of you in the 2ww are being more patient that me!!

pp - re early testing it vaires massively and depends how you feel about getting BFNs. I have had 3 BFPs, the earliest of which was 12dpo and with my daughter i didnt get a line until 13dpo and then it was very very faint. However i am a POAS addict and will probably start testing with IC's from 8/9dpo but then i KNOW a BFN doesn't mean much for me at that stage. If you can hold off then do, i have huge admiration for people who can wait until their Af is late!!

AR - hope you enjoyed the baby music group and the visit with your Grandma. Exciting that you get to start with the CBFM tomorrow!!!
GOM - did you go for your run tonight?? Hope you enjoyed it if you did. Yay to OPK's!!!
Monnie - sounding good lovely, fingers crossed!!!
Figaro - hi Mrs. Keep positive, you never know what will happen!!
PP - as AR said, testing can vary. I got my BFP at 12dpo but think I might have gotten it early judging by the line. I use this website a lot: www.countdowntopregnancy.com/.../dpo-chart.php
AFM - glad work is over. Tomorrow is Thursday so that good. With all the 2ww'ers and the testing I caved and started my OPK's tonight, 1 day earlier than planned. Got a faint line but more importantly I've got ovary pains and bloating which is usually the lead up to my ov. My plan was to start IC's tomorrow and my new CBD's on Saturday. Think I'll start the CBD's on Friday cos I was looking at my dates and I don't want to miss my high fertility which is a day or 2 before the positive OPK. Also, I want to see a negative first before any smiley face so that I know its working properly (its the tester in me!). I'm hoping to ovulate a bit sooner than CD23 this cycle but as long as I ovulate I'm not too fussed. Would just love to get my cycles a bit shorter.
Anyways, enough waffle, hi to all that follow
