Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Did everyone have good weekends?
Sally - Did you test?
AFM - Weekend was nice, had some lovely cuddles with my friend's baby on Saturday. Bad news ttc wise though as my spotting started Saturday evening which was earlier than expected. I seem to be taking it very well, no tears no deep sadness. Maybe after all this time I am finally getting used to the fact I can't seem to get pregnant?! I feel a bit numb when I think about it all. Going to call the private clinic today to see if I can get us booked in for when we get back from holiday. Less than 2 weeks until we go now, it really can't come quick enough!
Hi to all who follow x

How are we all?
Lulu - I'm so sorry you started spotting on Saturday, I hope the clinic get you booked in soon enough.
BFN on Saturday test (boooooo) - still no AF though, so it's a bit of a waiting game. Will see if she arrives this week at some point and if not re-test. Bit confused about it all, but hey ho, it's a good intro into the crazy world of TTC.
Bought a new bed at the weekend, it went on hold for wedding saving, so we splashed out a bit. Can't wait to get it in a couple of weeks.
Hi to all. x

sorry i've been awol, just needed a wee break i think.
Lulu, my heart just dropped a little for you. i'm so sorry. we have to believe on the scale of things it's relatively early days and it will happen for us. private clinic is a great step. good luck getting your appointment.
AFM cd17 expecting ov in the next day or two. had my fifth high on cbfm this morning. also going for my 3rd acupuncture appointment tomorrow.
LuLu, I am really sorry to hear this, I hope you find some comfort in speaking to the clinic and then have the best time on holiday knowing that there is a plan in place for when you come back. x
AFM - Well back to reality with a thud. Had the best time on holiday it was exactly what we needed we didn't do an awful lot, went to the beach and lazed by the pool, weather was beautiful it was just lovely. Injections are going fine, but I felt exhausted at the weekend and quite emotional, it's to be expected, but I don't think I felt so tired last time but they do say no 2 cycles are the same. I have a scan on Thursday to see what's happening with the lining of my womb, hopefully it's nice and thin, if so I can then I can start the tablets to thicken my lining and prepare it for implantation, I'll still have to inject but they say the tablets will counteract the symptoms of the injections so hopefully I'll have a bit more energy and won't feel so tired. All being well embryo transfer will be Friday 26th September. It doesn't seem that far away and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't absolutely sh1tting myself but there's not allot I can do other than keep praying and staying positive.

Sally - Sorry it was a bfn, there's still hope though fingers crossed!
Veecee - Thank you, and yes you are right it is still relatively early days and it can still happen. Hope you ov soon, how are you finding acupuncture?
Claire - Glad you had a lovely holiday and the injections are going well. Fingers crossed for your scan this week. The 26th really isn't far away, keeping everything crossed for you x

Hello all, only starting to think about ttc but wanted to pop in and say hello.
Lulu hope the clinic can get an appointment sorted for you and big cuddles.
Sally fingers crossed for you and everything crossed for you too Claire xxxx
08/09/2014 at 13:24
Lulu - I'm sorry to hear this, best of luck with the clinic although I do hope that will invoke the law of sod for you xx
Sally-Lou - sorry to hear about the BFN, hope it was just too early!
vc - hope ov comes along in the next day or two - enjoy acupuncture tomorrow.
Claire_Lou - Glad to hear you had a nice holiday, sorry to hear of the exhaustion though! Fingers crossed for Thursday x
Luna - hello!
AFM - Malta was just fab, really enjoyed myself. H had a great time and got in some really good dives too. TTC wise, I'm in the dreaded 2ww, CD19, 6DPO, just over a week to see if AF turns up or not.
08/09/2014 at 15:57
Lulu - Sorry you started spotting - but glad you have a plan with what to do next
Sally - Sorry you got a BFN, exciting on new bed front, I would like a new mattress but we've only had ours 6 years and DH thinks its fine.
Veecee - Hope the acupuncture works for you.
Claire sorry you are feeling a bit poo fingers crossed for short term pain long term gain scenario. Glad you had a lovely holiday sometimes its good just not to be at home.
Luna - hello and look forward to seeing more of you :)
Tayto - Hate the TWW its such a mind f*** hope you have some good distractions planned to take your mind off it.
AFM - Well despite being nauseated since last wednesday, AF turned up two days early on saturday and i still feel nauseated and like poo a lot of the day. Even POAS today and got the BFN i was expecting. umming and ahhing about ovulation sticks this month as since i am still breastfeeding i am not sure if i am even ovulating. This was supposed to be our first month so not feeling too bad about it being a BFN but fed up with the nausea. Have unrelated doc appointment on friday so if still feeling the same may ask doc. There was a bug going round work last week so probably still that. Will try and remember to login again soon x
08/09/2014 at 16:24
hi lg - sorry AF showed up, even when it's the first month, it's still poo, isn't it? Love your sig btw! I have a niece who thinks like that - even now - at 2.5yrs!
08/09/2014 at 16:27
Hope you're feeling better soon LG xxx
09/09/2014 at 10:39
Hi ladies I hope you are all doing ok today!
Hi Tayto! Glad you had a great holiday, hope the rest of the 2ww goes quickly for you.
LG - Sorry af arrived.
Not much to report from me apart from 11 days until holiday woo hoo! x
09/09/2014 at 16:23
tayto - we're almost in sync this month, we can hold each other's hand through it! PLeased you had a lovely holiday.
Lulu - so sorry the spotting started. I can completely relate to the numb feeling. It might be to do with the fact that you're taking steps to be investigated? That's when I stopped crying every cycle anyway, when I made our first doctors appointment.
LG - sorry that AF arrived
Luna - hello and welcome!
Claire - welcome back! Glad you had a lovely holiday. I have everything in my body crossed for you, I really do. X
Veecee - good to see you back, hope acupuncture goes well. What do you think of it so far?
Sally Lou - maybe you were too early? Hold out until AF is a week late if you can, although I know the temptation of those damn pee sticks!
AFM: I'm CD20 and I reckon 5DPO (FF hasn't detected ov but I've been off with temping due to waking up in the middle of the night and stuff again). I think we covered ov - DTD CD12 & CD14, negative opk CD15 AM, very positive opk CD15 PM, DTD CD16 AM - but as much as I can see myself holding our baby and being pregnant, for some reason I don't think we did it this month! I have anything crossed in any case. I have this weird feeling that it will happen for us before Christmas and I have no idea what brought that feeling on, I've been feeling it for about a week (I don't think it's a cosmic sign or anything!)
In other news I am going to start writing unsolicited applications to marketing agencies tonight. I feel a bit insecure in my job for one reason or another and besides, I miss the buzz of working in a marketing agency. Plus I'm not learning anything where I am at the moment and I want to be able to get into another area, where there really isn't scope at my current place. So although I know nothing will probably come of it, it's better than sitting around and fretting.
09/09/2014 at 18:19
Enjayee - Best of luck with finding a new job, you need something good to distract you from the madness that is TTC
AFM - I caved last night and bought some internet cheap OV predictor sticks, in my crazy logic decided that if i am not ovulating then it is not worth getting annoyed at AF visiting, but will what will probably happen is that i will be annoyed that i did and it will turn up anyway. Work was driving me nutty today everything i touched broke.
Hope everyone had good days?
09/09/2014 at 20:04
Thanks, LG! Although I've been at this for a year, nothing seems to distract me unfortunately!
Am feeling insecure in the job as for one reason or another I'm actually a little worried they're going to start making cuts soon. Everyone has this mysterious meeting lined up with the 'corporate team' next week, a weird email was sent yesterday to the whole company regarding our position, and then when somebody replied all to ask whether this meant staff cutbacks it was neither confirmed or denied. And so I figured that it's best to put put the feelers out :-)
09/09/2014 at 21:57
I have just been through a consultation and redundancy and was made partially redundant. The unknown is the pits, lots of people left where I work all have got jobs and most better paid! Fx all ok for you.
10/09/2014 at 08:38
Enjayee - I hope this is your month but if not I really hope your feeling is right and you get your bfp before xmas! Good luck with the job applications.
LG - Sorry work is unknown I hope it gets sorted soon.
AFM - AF still hasn't arrived properly which is annoying but at the same time it's good as it means ov should happen while we are on holiday! In other news for me I am a fat pig lol! I'm going away in just over a week and my diet never really started, I planned to be really good these last 2 weeks but ended up going for a nice lunch with a freind yesterday and as I had to be in early this morning someone at work bought me a chocolate croissant which I couldn't say no to! Must starve myself next week!
10/09/2014 at 09:14
Morning all! Happy Hump Day!
Enjayee - yes, let's be POAS buddies, shall we?! :-) Fingers crossed for you my lovely x
LG - I think that's a really good pragmatic approach re the opks - at least you can note when you did them and be able to see when exactly you return to ovulating. What was wrong with work yesterday? Here is a good place to have a vent about work!
Lulu - That's a PITA about AF - well done on the PMA for ov during hols - it's not easy be positive but you've done really well. I'm with you on the fat pig thing - I ate all around me on hols and am still at it!
AFM - CD21, 8DPO. Have had 8 days of very high temps (36.71 ish), no dips or curves so not sure if this is a good sign or not. AF due next Tuesday so no testing until Wednesday.
10/09/2014 at 10:15
Sally - I really hope it's just a little early for you fingers crossed.
Veecee - How are you getting on with the acupuncture? I have my first session this Friday and feeling a bit nervous about it all.
Luna - Hello and welcome and I really hope your stay is a short one :)
Tayto - So happy to hear you had a lovely holiday and I really hope this is your month, I hope those temps stay nice and high!
Lovely Girl - I hope you start to feel better soon, it does sound like you could be coming down with something and definitely worth mentioning if you are at the doctors anyway.
Enjayee - I hope with all of my heart that your premonition is right, how amazing would that be. I wish you all the best with the job hunting it might be a nice distraction from the TTC.
AFM, I've not been feeling that well with the meds this time round, I'm so tired all of the time, it's much different to last time just hope all is well with my scan tomorrow and I can start the second lot of drugs which should surpress my symptoms. Feeling so anxios this time round, I was really positive I still am to a degree but the closer it gets the more the nerves are kicking in.
In other news, we had our house decorated whilst we are away but the buggers have used the wrong colour paint, it's not the end of the world, they are coming back tomorrow to redo it but it's meant since Saturday I haven't been able to put the curtains up or the pics on the wall and it's so bare. They sad they should get it done in the day so I'll be able to sort it all at the weekend.
10/09/2014 at 22:08
Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well Claire - good luck for scan tomorrow. Hope they can get the paint sorted at the weekend for you too xx
11/09/2014 at 08:12
Claire, best of luck for your scan and that you feel better soon.
LG - thanks for your kind words re redundancy! Feel a bit better about it now and am slightly less worried but am still looking anyway, no harm in that hey :-)
Lulu - great attitude re the holiday and good timing re the holiday too - hope you have a lovely relaxing time.
tayto - hope those temps stay high for you, would be great to see you get a BFP!
AFM: My temps are still above the coverline but has been a slow rise over the last couple of days, was 36.67 this morning. Apparently I am CD22 and 6DPO now according to FF. Also according to FF we DTD on ovulation day but I am missing a couple of temps around then so who knows. I'm trying not to obsess about it although I think we all know how hard that is! I have had sore nipples since 1DPO, I know it's too early to tell anything but it's unusual for me. I also have my visit to the gyno in just under two hours - a little nervous but am trying to focus on the funny thing that I am having to revise what the 'proper' words are in Danish for lady parts and sperm (I am better with slang which isn't great, it'd be the equivalent of me saying "my husband's jizz count came back low but in other news I've had no problems with Aunt Flow visiting or my foof in general. So doc, what are our options?").
That aside! Weekend plans? I know it's Thursday but to hell with it. This weekend H and I have arranged a low key date for us on Friday, partly just for the hell of it and secondly so we don't drink. We're going to have a nice long gym session after work - I hasten to add that is not part of the date - then we're going to the newly opened Wagamamas round the corner at about 7.30pm for a nice slow bowl of ramen. Then we're going to pick out a film on HBO Nordic or Netflix that neither of us has seen before, traipse back to the flat and watch it. Screw it, I might even buy some cheesecake on the way back (I live round the corner from two AMAZING cheesecake cafes, if any of you ever come to Copenhagen let me know and I will take you there).
Saturday we're going to get up early and go shopping for bits and bobs for our flat which we've settled into but the dining room in particular is a bit bare. I might go to the gym first but I may not. Going to get frames for wedding pictures which we FINALLY got printed, 18 months after our wedding! Looking forward to putting them up at last. Then in the evening we're going to a friend's place for dinner. There will be wine but I am determined not to go crazy. I do tend to be good though, and always make sure I have a full glass of water next to me throughout the meal.
Sunday I'd like to go to the gym if I don't manage it on Saturday. But whatever I do, I really need to go clothes shopping as I dropped a dress size a few months ago and a lot of my dresses and t-shirts are now baggy!
