Well confusion still reigning here. BFN on superdrug test but still now AF. Temp still above coverline. It's cd34 - I haven't had a cycle this long in over a year. More waiting it seems!
How is everyone else doing?

Veecee - sorry to hear you're feeling a bit in limbo at the moment. It's not over until AF shows up though - I didn't get my BFP with F until CD50! I'd had BFNs in the week prior to getting the BFP so I was just waiting for AF to show up. My cycles before that ranged from 30 days to 48 so were all over the place. What's been your longest cycle so far?
Nothing much to report here. I'm in the 2ww and have been a few AF type aches but AF isn't due until at least another week so we'll see.
Hi to everyone who follows x

Thanks WG. When I came off the pill 18months ago I had some around 38-42 but in the last year they've been 28-33. I have started taking b6 which could be lengthening it.
Hope the 2ww isn't proving too tough for you.

VC - I really hope you're not in limbo for too long. Just remember until af actually arrives you're not out of it.
WG - hope the 2ww isn't taking over your mind too much.
AFM - I'm CD23 today and just as I was getting ready for bed last night had some ewcm. I've already had that earlier this month around the time that I'd normally ovulate so I'm confused what this second lot is about.
Hi to all who follow and hope you all have a good day. x

Sapphire - it can be due to a second estrogen surge after ovulation: "Some women will experience another rise in estrogen levels about a week after ovulation, but the increase is not quite as high as what occurs just prior to and during ovulation. Both estrogen and progesterone levels increase during this time to help prepare the lining of your uterus for implantation. During the secondary rise in estrogen you may notice a second patch of EWCM. Not every woman will experience this but it is not considered unusual." (from here: www.countdowntopregnancy.com/.../help_cervical_fluid.php )

Veecee - I really hope it's just a bfp playing hide and seek and af stays away - fingers crossed!
Wg - hope the 2ww flies by for you (with the right outcome at the end!)
Sapphire - Sorry, no help with the ewcm as I don't ever seem to get it - let alone twice. Looks like veecee has found a good explanation though.
Afm, cd10 - another high on the cbfm.... and I am feeling properly fed up and sad about it. *Warning* I'm about to post something that is going to make me sound like a horrible/bitter/awful person - but.... I found out last night that the son of my dad's wife is having a baby with his new girlfriend... they are so young, broke, on again/off again and he already has a son with a different girl (from when he was 17) who he tends to dump on the grandparents whenever it suits him (which is whenever being a dad doesn't suit his lifestyle). It just made me feel awful. And I got irrationally upset that the baby is due on my birthday. I don't want to feel like this but really struggling to be happy for them. This was on top of finding out last week my stepsister is expecting her 4th... Other people's pregnancies haven't made me feel like this before. I guess because it's close to home... and my mum and dad don't have any 'biological' grandchildren yet (not that they treat the others differently, just in my head I want them to have a 'proper' one!). Sorry... woe is me is over. I probably need a slap and telling to pull myself together. I know people have it far far worse than me.

Gonna be back for proper post but just wanted to ask veecee how many high temps are there after ovulation? According to taking charge of yourfertilityif you have 18 hightemps after ov you are pregnant.

Good morning all
Veecee- I really do hope it's a bfp that's a late shower! I didn't get one with jack until I was 19dpo so pretty late! Fingers crossed!
WG - Hope the 2ww flies for you and you get that BFP!
Sapphire - No idea about EWCM but Veecee's explantation sound's like a good one too me!
LB- Sorry to hear that your feeling sad about it :( Hugs!
And I know exactly how you feel on the account of your dad's wife's son.. Sounds horrible and I would be exactly how you are feeling!
AFM - CD6 nothing much to report about that, Off to homebase to pick up a few bits to do up our hallway! Our doggie when he was little chewed the plaster off the wall in some places and ripped the carpet off the stairs on one step - we will be getting laminate flooring in the hallway to the lounge so will just use a bit of the carpet to fix the stairs for awhile, going to repaint the hallway! very excited about this will finally have the hallway looking nice!
22/01/2014 at 11:50
Right, morning ladies!
Wg hope the 2ww goes quick for you!
Sapphire - no idea about cm but fingers crossed for you!
Lolab I know exactly how you feel, its horribleand so unfair when people that arent great parents seem to just fall pregnant and the drop of a hat and nice people dont. Hugs!
Cc exciting about the hallway, I love doing things to the house.
Afm- well its cd12 and according to ff and my temps I ovulated on cd 9! I havent had any of my usual signs tho, which is odd, unless all this time ive been oving earlier than I thought and been dtd at the wrong time! Its all very exciting, but we'll have to wait and see I suppose, im having very mild cramps today, I am apparently 3dpo. We managed to dtdthe day before and the day after, but me and h werent speaking yestrday. The cat broke his leg and has to have an op and my h doesnt deal very well with stuff like that. The cat is having his op today tho. So all sorted.

Hey all, I'm back for a new cycle
Veecee - how confusing! Can you flash your chart?
WG - hope the next week flies in for you!
Sapphire - I often have that, hope it's a good sign for you!
Lola - have a hug! We all have times when other people's pregnancies are too much to handle, xx
CC - expect hallway flashes when done
AJ - very odd! Are you still going with the temps? Are you using OPKs?
AFM - CD1 over here, but I'm ok, I knew we had no chance this month as I was in London during OV. Going for the Sperm Meets Egg plan this cycle, cracked the thermometer out this morning so am temping again too. Feeling very positive this month and really feel like this is our lucky time. I've got my fertility appointment at the hospital in two weeks, so I think that's probably what's driving me right now.
Hi to all who follow

Hi saffron, yes still temping, its my first month doing it so its a bit exciting. Sorry its cd1 but glad your feeling positive tho.
22/01/2014 at 13:53
CC - enjoy the redecorating!
AJ - hope you've caught it perfectly :)
Saffron - yay positivity!! this will be your month!
Will flash my chart in a moment (from phone)

22/01/2014 at 13:58
You're only 14DPO as you OV'd late, although your temp is still high enough to be a great sign...how long is your LP normally?
22/01/2014 at 14:34
VC – you are a fountain of knowledge, thank you!
LolaB – sorry to hear you’re not having the best start to a day.
CC – hope you had a successful trip and are a step closer to your new hallway.
AJ – that seems very strange. I’m sure our bodies decide to just mess with our heads when we think we know what’s going on.
Saffron – yay for being so positive!
22/01/2014 at 15:13
AJ - Oh how strange what are your normal signs? Just wondering if you have been missing ovulation all this time and confused other sign's as temping is the best way too know if you ovulated!
Saffron - Glad you're feeling positive! Fingers crossed to Sperm meets egg and temping and this appointment all sounds good!
Veecee - Agree with Saffron your only 14dpo so still plenty of time to get a positive, your temps are looking very promising though! fingers so tightly crossed for you!
Got all the bits we needed today to do the hallway - It's going to be a bit of doing a little bit over a long time I think haha! Got to repair the skirting board in a few places and then repaint that, and then paint the walls and then laminate eventually. Got a nice big mirror from homebase and some lampshades so will look tidy at least lol! got 3 testers of paint so hopefully can get the paint on saturday!
22/01/2014 at 15:15
Thanks guys. LP usually 12 days but it could be the Vit b making a difference to it.
22/01/2014 at 15:25
Oh I think maybe the Vit B has prob increased it :D Fingers crossed so tightly for you!
22/01/2014 at 16:12
Well last month my cycle was only 22 days so maybe they are getting shorter. When I concieved my son I hadnt had a period for 3 months. Our bodies are strange!
22/01/2014 at 16:14
Yes cc thats what I was thinking. I usually get lots of cm and ov pains, it would explain why its taken all these years haha
