BebeCK so happy to hear your tests came back clear. Yes I know how you feel about that, a part of you was thinking it would have been good if they found something easily fixable to explain why it hasn’t happened yet. But you got great news whatever way you decide to proceed. I wouldn’t be thinking IVF just yet. Isn’t there other methods before IVF? Maybe go see someone to discuss the options? Might put your mind at ease and help you relax.
Dini I like the sound of this charting. If it doesn’t work for me this month I might look into it. Any luck O’ing yet?

Hopefulmum2bb I’m so sorry to hear AF arrived. I cried my heart out last month too as I had convinced myself I was pregnant. I took it so bad and was depressed for a week. I didn’t even want to DTD because my attitude was “sure it’s not my fertile window so what’s the point?” It really got in on me last month. I’m trying not to let that happen this month. Of course I’ll still be disappointed but I’m not going to symptom spot and google as much as I did... I was becoming obsessed!! What is the LLetz procedure? Does the affect you TTC?

Update on me - I’m now officially in the tww. I have been having mid cycle spotting which I had a scan and Pap smear done which came back clear. She said my ovaries look good. I’ve to get further checks though because they don’t know why it’s happening. I had that on Wed for one day. Then some o type cramps followed so I’m guessing it’s to do with O. I’ve BD’d CD 10, 12,13,14,16 and 18 some morning and some evening so every day and a a half. Hoping it enough this month but we’ll soon see. Only thing different this month is barely any CM which is unusual for me but who knows anymore whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

Hope you’re all in a good enough head space to enjoy the weekend girls x

Hey! Hopefulmum2bb, really sorry to hear AF arrived. Hang in there, I really hope this is your month and you don't have to wait long for your BFP.

Mum2T, I've heard that some people get spotting around O, so I hope that's it for you! Or could it be related to all the BD?
Great that Ovaries and Pap are all good!
Do you have an idea what dpo you are and when you're planning on testing?

Bebeck, I hope this is your month, are you getting close to the fertile window now?

Update: both my apps have confirmed O on CD 21 for me and I'm now 3dpo! Yeay and Pheeeeeeewwwwwww, I was worried I was going to have an anovulatory cycle! We had a last minute change of plans and thought we would try BD every day around O... but we missed it :( We still BD'ed every other day by that point so I'm still in with a chance. Just hope OH wasn't drained of all his swimmers by that point :)
I'm planning on testing at 10dpo (next Sat) and I'm also going to take a week off charting so that I'm not thinking about in the morning.

Hi Dini snap for me!! so much for my “relaxed approach” this month. I’m already stressing that i didn’t BD on the right days. I didn’t BD on the day I had the spotting and he Day after but not the day of. And I know the little swimmers hang around later for a few days but it’s that horrible little voice in my head telling me it’s not going to work. Ughhh it’s going to be a long tww! Another thing, I got a copious amount of creamy CM (sorry if TMI) when I conceived my son so if that doesn’t come in the next few days I’ll be telling myself I’m out. God how can I do this for the next few months... it’s so stressful!!
This time I’m not testing until im officially late. LASt month I tested too many times and the disappointment was awful.
So you only have a week left until test day? Oh I have everything crossed for you for a BFP!!!

Hello ladies!

Mum2T and Dini welcome to the tww! I'm cheering for you both! Even if you missed a specific day during the fertile window, it can still work out! It only takes one hehe FX FX FX
So Dini we will know Saturday, what about you Mum2T, when is AF due?
Thanks for cheering me up on my good tests (it's silly I need cheering on that). Yes there are other options before IVF, I just have had a feeling from the beginning (even before we started ttc) that I would end up there. Of course I cannot predict the future and it's probably because I'm the worry type and also the type who likes to know all the possibilities. We shall see... We will consider all the options when we go to the fertility specialist. Maybe next month.
Hopefulmum2bb are you past AF? Ready for next cycle?
Mostmagical, any update?

AFM cd 9, close to fertile window but no EWCM yet. It should start in next day or two based on my previous cycles. I have been charting BBT and I highly recommend it, it's a great way to really understand my cycle. But it can turn a little obsessive lol
I bought mucinex (guaifenesin) and will take it during my fertile window. Not sure if my EWCM quality is already good enough but I'm getting desperate and will try anything (safe) that may help :D
Yesterday DH and I had dinner with another couple who we are good friends with and I wanted to share so bad about what's really going on with me right now and how much ttc has taken over my world but I didn't. I am torn between the relief of talking to people vs the advice I might get ("it will happen when you relax...") and also I wonder if they are ttc too and they have better luck or even they are already pregnant (I know a month ago they were thinking about getting pregnant). I feel like a bad person comparing myself to others, I know everyone has their own path and my path is independent from others but it's hard sometimes. :oops:
Luckily I am meeting with a good friend for lunch today who knows about my ttc adventure and I will be able to share/vent :D
Happy Sunday everyone and good start of week to you!

Ugh BebeCK, definitely think about who you tell. I told one person who kind of mentioned it to another and so on. Generally I think everyone knows and especially since my son is 3 and a half people just generally ask me anyway. It’s so annoying and I wish people would just leave me alone about it. I don’t need a constant reminder!
So it’s your hubby’s favourite week next week :-) what method are you doing? Every day or every other day?
I’m thinking about charting next month too. This is probably stupid but can I use a normal thermometer?

My AF is due 4/5 so still a bit to go yet. Trying to keep busy and not think too much about it but I don’t think that’s going too well.

Yes DH is quite excited especially since ttc we do not BD as much outside of fertile window...
We will try every other day or every 36h, on mornings if possible depending on our schedule.
For charting you need a clinical basal thermometer for 0.01 degree accuracy because the temperature shift may be only 0.5deg (in celsius - I'm in US but originally from Europe so I like metric Celsius better). I have the BBT-113Ai by iProvèn.
Good luck!

Hello all. Newbie to the group so please forgive me if I don’t catch on to the lingo right away. I am 27 and fiancé is 29. We r getting married in June and I plan to stop taking my bc in about 2 weeks when my pack is done. I am super nervous that I’ve been on the pill for too long and I might run into some complications with ttc. Just wanted to drop by and say hello.

Hi everyone and welcome Bri314! Congratulations on the wedding! I hope you have a wonderful day - keep us updated!

Bebeck, I hope you had a nice lunch and let off some steam with you friend who knows about your TTC. And I also agree with BBT charting really helping with understanding cycles, and yes, it does become a bit obsessive - especially when anticipating the big O. I remember times near the beginning of charting when I couldn't sleep because I wanted to see if my temp would go up in the morning.... and then worrying incase my disrupted sleep gave me a false temp :/ Sad, I know!

Mum2T, I'm expecting AF on May 3rd so we're not too far off each other :D Good luck! I hope this is it for you and you won't need to start charting! Any symptoms to report? I think you're being very patient waiting for AF to arrive and not testing before then!

As For me, I'm 6dpo - nothing to report - some twinges today but sure they happen every month. I don't (actively) symptom spot anymore as I realise anything could be a 'symptom'... but I can't help noticing things sometimes and wondering if that could be something or not.

Hello!!! I’ve been creeping around these pages for the last 4 cycles ttc and finally decided to make an account.
So a little about me, 24y/o, married 2 years to 25 y/o DH. I’m a labor and delivery RN and want so badly to finally experience what I see every day at work! I have been ttc for #1 since January, using OPK and preseed for all the cycles except the first one. I have cycles ranging from 32-38 days long, usually 32... except this cycle is much longer. I was sick for about a week when I thought I would ovulate but OPK said no... and then after I got over my cold I had very clear positive OPK and some cramping in the left lower abd. So today I am 1 DPO,
Starting the TWW. This month I was coincidentally taking Mucinex (for my cold) and using preseed. I also made sure to “O” every time we BD. My DH has been taking fertilaid vitamins but only 1/day. We BD’d everyday that I was possibly ovulating so I am hoping his swimmers
can make their way up and STICK!!! anyways, good luck to you ladies! Baby dust!

Btw I’m considering trying EPO next month of this one doesn’t stick.... maybe it will help with my hormonal cystic acne??? Thoughts?

Hey everyone!
Welcome Bri314 and Hillz! I'm so glad our buddy group is growing.
Congrats Bri314 on getting married!
I think many women have no problem ttc even after having been on BC for many years. I understand, i had the same concern too but my internet research suggests it shouldn't matter.
Good luck!
Hillz cool job I wonder what it's like to see new babies everyday. I hope this is your cycle! Welcome to the tww and keep us updated.
Dini getting closer to testing. I'm excited for you! FX
Your charting story is too funny and cute.
My friend was understanding. She reminded me that I'm not in control of this process but also acknowledged that it must be hard because I want it so bad. I cried a lot on Sunday but I feel better now.
I'm officially in the fertile window since yesterday with EWCM. We BD last night even though I had to wake up at 3:45am to catch a flight for a business trip. DH and I joked about our dedication :D
I'm in better spirits this week, hopefully I can keep it up into the tww.
Love reading all your updates!

Welcome Bri314 and Hillz - Love that our group is growing!
Bri314 I am also getting married in June. We are eloping though, Just me, my OH and my son. I'm very excited. It would make everything perfect if I knew we had another little bub on the way too. I wouldn't worry about coming off BC, a friend of mine got pg first cycle after getting her Mirena out. Hopefully it's the same for you.
Hillz - what an amazing job you have. You seem to have DB'd at all the right times so hopefully you've caught that egg! Welcome to the dreaded TWW :-( will you be a symptom spotter?
BebeCK glad to hear you are feeling a bit better. Sometimes a good cry and a chat with a friend is exactly what you need. That is very good dedication - FC it pays off.
Dani - We are expected AF a day apart. Hopefully neither show up! I'm taking the same approach as you - Everything can be a symptom. The only strange thing I have to report is on Monday I had an awful pain around my left ovary that lasted non stop until Wednesday morning. It was bad enough tbh and some on and off really uncomfortable cramping to go with it. Not sure if that means anything though and this time I'm not overthinking it all. One more week to go! When are you testing?

I don’t typically symptom spot but can talk myself into it if try! Haha I ALWAYS have premenstrual spotting around 9dpo which I always tell myself could be IB... but I know better. It happens every time. Makes me think I might have low progesterone? Idk I won’t be seeking infertility treatment or lab work until 1 year of trying, though I am suspicious. I frequently chat with midwifes and OBs about my ttc process at work and they tell me to relax and just have fun. Lol easier said then done...

Wow Hillz, I have spotting around O and I’m having lots of tests done to find out why. I’ve had a pap and a scan which all came back clear and now they’re referring me to a gyno. Glad to hear I’m not the only one.
Wow you sound so relaxed about it all, I wish I could take a leaf from your book. I’m starting to get nervous already and I’ve a week to go. I just don’t know how I’m going to deal with the disappointment again. I have a feeling it’s a no but trying to just push it all to the back of my mind.

Oh yes the old “have fun” with it. You can’t do that when you have the ultimate longing to be pg because you’re constantly just not just wondering whether that time is the one that worked!!

Hi ladies!
I'm new to these groups, but in need of some camaraderie and support; very limited to gals who understand my craziness lol.

I am almost 31, TTC #2 (DS is almost 2), and I am currently CD29 and DPO3. This cycle I started using OPKs in order to figure out when I O, had to do the same when trying for DS. I also went on and added preseed into the mix as well. At first this cycle I thought I had missed when I O'd because I was CD23 and still getting negatives, and I'd been testing since CD 11. Then low and behold CD25 comes and BAM positive OPK! And it just so happened that DH and I BD that day too (BD on CD22 as well); however, he left for a business trip Monday, so there's been no activity since my positive OPK.

I would love for mother nature to smile and make things easier this time around since conceiving DS was a little bit of a struggle, but I'm not very hopeful. And, being in the TWW is driving me insane. I wish I could remember what I did to distract myself last time lol.

Anyway, good luck and lots of baby dust to everyone!
