Go skydiving! Or start a new high intensity workout circuit! Or eat sushi/lunchmeat/soft cheeses! And allll the extra coffee! <3

I know how you feel. Two of my FB friends, in addition to the 6 FB friends who are already pregnant, just announced they were expecting baby #2 (separately). SO frustrating! I'm beginning to worry that we're not it this cycle since my temp rose so considerably the day before yesterday. Also I have very minimal breast pain, and no real symptoms at all... not even cramping! I know I'm only 4DPO, but it sucks.

Omg yes aaaaaaall the coffeee and soft cheese!!!! yummy! Infact I just bought DH some French Bri so i'm gonna get stuck in haha!

Just purchased some Vitex capsules off of amazon to arrive tomorrow, so we'll see how that affects my ovulation date this month. I have read some stories where the ovulation date has changed within one cycle, but others that take a couple of cycles to regulate.

Do any of us actually have a 28 day cycle? DOES ANYONE??? is this a myth????? haha

Ah well you're defo in with a good chance Maggie! Implantation wouldn't have taken place yet right? So anything you feel at the moment would be non-pregnancy related anyway (i think). In a couple of days things could take a big turn!!!! fingers so tightly crossed for you it hurts!!

Bless you and your French Bri, Alex.

I had a 28 day cycle... when I was on BCP. Hahaha! I think it's a myth. I've been at 36 days the past 3 cycles I believe.

Sorry for the negativity. Daylight Savings Time is dumb. I just want to wake up to sunny skies!

Noooooooo Alex! Fucking AF! Wahhhhhh I'm sorry :(
My suggestion is an evening of self care! Take a hot bath with bath salts, candles and a cup of your favorite tea :hb:

Yeah it's totally a myth, so is "sex makes babies". It's so much more than that!!

I'm definitely gonna be having a nice HOT bath tonight considering there's no chance of damaging a little one anymore, another positive out of todays (or last nights) bad bad unwanted arrival.

Ro, Vitex is actually a plant which can be taken as pills, tea or drops. I believe that Delia may know more than me as she has taken it before but as far as i'm aware it is very beneficial in regulating the menstrual cycle and also alleviating pms symptoms. It can help you ovulate as it can encourage the production of LH. It is reported to do lots of lovely things to us! Have a look at this page: http://natural-fertility-info.com/vitex

How is everyone else doing today?

Alex did a great job explaining vitex! I don't have anything to add. I've been taking it for a couple of months now to help with ovulation, and I can't say I've noticed anything yet-- it is an herb, so it takes a few months to start having an effect.

I haven't taken an opk yet today (I've been taking them in the evenings), but DH and I still managed to BD last night, even with my back being so bad. LOL it was pretty pathetic :rofl: . He looked at me and said, jokingly, "Andddd how bad do you want a baby?" hahahahaha

Maggie, how's your shoulder? 4dpo is so early...if you caught the egg, it wouldn't even have implanted yet, so I'm not surprised you don't feel differently!

My back still hurts like a mofo. If I put continuous pressure on it, it's not so bad... I'm going to take a quick hot shower when I get home and have DH put some icy hot on it before we head to the MIL's house for her birthday dinner for Kyle.

His birthday is tomorrow, so maybe if he's lucky he'll get some birthday BD? Hahaha!

Oo update us when you've done your opk Delia, I have a good feeling it'll be dark! Good that you've managed to BD despite your obvious obsticles!! That's commitment right there haha

Have a lovely evening Maggie, hope you have a great family night. I love family birthdays

I just love amazon prime- my vitex has already been dispatched! And it wasn't too expensive either compared to other fertility aids. Unfortunately I couldn't order any wondfos because my mother uses my amazon prime account and I don't want her to stumble upon my ovulation test order !! No one is to know we are TTC until I'm actually prego!

Lol Delia!! I laughed at your hubbys comment! The things we will do ha ha!! Keep us posted on your OPKs.

Alex, I hope AF isn't being too hard on you :-( plenty of chocolate I find helps :) a nice cuppa tea, a good bar of chocolate and a hot water bottle works for me.

I hope your shoulder gets better soon Maggie! I was stalking your chart today. It's a good sign that your temps are staying up isn't it? We need those babies to stay up high!! FX for you!

No update from me. No ovulation. I'v had a good bit of lower back pain today though and pains in my legs like what I usually get when AF visits.
Had a serious case of the Monday blues today. I keep telling myself it's just a 4 day week. That will get me through it lol!

Thanks for explaining vitex to me ladies. Your a good bunch!

I'm currently in bed with my fur baby curled up on my lap, catching up on the voice uk, drinking tea and eating a sugar donut. I've a sitting room full of men watching the soccer match tonight. And I'm no mood for socialising ha ha

Ha ro! I've just sat through that soccer match (assuming it was Chelsea vs Man U?....) with a tea and a few pieces of toblerone!! Good advice, the Choccy, hot drink and bath totally sorted me out. AF is being crap as usual but very strange that my nipples still kill! Normally they stop hurting before AF, feel like my body is playing tricks on me.

What did you think of vitex Ro? Something you would consider or pass on? What do you take at the moment (if anything!). Sorry to hear that you haven't ovulated yet, what cycle day are you on? Are you still doing opks?

The family dinner was nice! The three nephews (5, 3, and nearly 1) were in full force tonight. Haha! Makes me want one so bad.

I'm hanging out with my heating pad on my back. :)

Here are my opks...the bottom one (one on the right...yes, I realize I taped them in upside down lol) I just took a few minutes ago, so it's still wet. I feel like they're getting darker, but so slowly! Shouldn't I have a positive by now?! Argh!

I also had SO MUCH CM today! I didn't really check it, but it seemed more watery and not egg white-y yet. There was enough that I should have planned ahead and worn a panty liner or something! Uff da! That's gotta be a good sign, though, right?!

Yes Alex, Man u VS Chelsea. Wasn't the result they had hoped for. My other half is a huuuuge MAN U supporter. Its torture watching a game! I am not into it at all! The poor dog doesn't know whats going on whenever there is a match on with all the shouts and roars ha ha!! poor pet! Glad to hear your feeling a bit better.

At the moment I'm still drinking the red rasberry leaf tea. And that's it! Still no ovulation. I'm on CD 25. I've cut back to doing OPK just in the evening. I was getting to annoyed doing them twice a day. Disappointment twice a day sucked! I had such a crappy nights sleep. I didn't feel well at all and was breaking out in sweats! My temp this morning stayed pretty much same as last few days though. My chart looks to be levelling out a little bit?

Delia, your most recent OPK looks sooooo promising! You must be nearly there :)

Glad you had fun with the little kiddies Maggie!
