MrsA-I never leaned the temperature monitoring either. This past month was the first month we started trying to time BD to ovulation times just going off body cues. After I started reading all the comments from this forum I felt like an absolute fool. I started telling my DH that we needed to buy a bunch of ovulation kits and a thermometer and track everything. I think I scared him a little. Hopefully this is your month for a BFP, but the good thing is that if it's not, you have a whole wealth of knowledge here on how to approach things for next month (not knowledge from me necessarily. I still have no idea what I'm doing in those tracking respects). But from what I've seen, this is such a great community and I hope you feel comfortable here. I mean heck, a few of the girls started here TTC, and they've already had a complete pregnancy and delivery and they're still helping us!

Hi Ladies

I hope your all having a good weekend?

Ewar - that picture is absolutely beautiful she's so scummy I just want to pick her up and snuggle her lol. So glad your enjoying being a Mummy and things are going well!
Glad you'll be sticking round for baby number two I just really hope I'm pregnant or have had mine by the time that happens lol.

Khud - has it sunk in yet that your pregnant? Anymore symptoms yet?

Mglupe - how you doing?

MrsA - welcome to the group these ladies are amazing and will definitely help you on this journey!
Like Shia said any "symptoms" before 8DPO are usually down to Progesterone, all you can do is wait and see? (Easier said than done).

Shia - thanks I'm determined to enjoy myself next weekend to mark the big 30!!!
I only lost half a pound which was so annoying as I needed to lose a pound to get my next milestone of 3 stone but I'll have it next week for my birthday for sure!
Congrats on the next house, that's great that you'll have loads more room!
Wow 5 weeks already that's going so quick, they always say to make the most of it as they grow up so quickly!

EOE - hope your all doing well?

AFM - I'm CD20 and according to FF I ovulated on CD17 so I'm 3DPO. My temps have risen but I never got a positive OPK? I think it's because I could only test once a day as it was during the week and couldn't do it at work. The darkest line I got was CD16 teatime but it was no where near a positive so I can only think I got my surge between Mon teatime and Tues teatime then ovulated on Wed which adds up with my chart!

Otherwise not much happening, I'm meeting some friends for lunch as a pre birthday celebration today as were away next weekend for my actual birthday.
Got the day off with DH tomorrow so we'll get to spend some time together which will be nice as he's been so busy with his new job!

I should get to do my tube test the second week of August and we've got our follow up appt with the specialist on 13th Oct. it seems ages away but I'm really hoping this clear out with the tube test will mean we don't need the follow up appt?

Love and best wishes to all!

Dear Khud and Feefee

Thank you both so much for your very warm welcomes and messages. I feel so happy being here already. It's so nice to know that I can come here for advice and just to chat with some likeminded ladies :) my DH is tired of hearing about babies and pregnancy. I get way too excited and go on and on so he has limited discussions to once a day! so it's nice to know there's a place I can come haha it's so hard to wait, I wish I could find out right now! I guess I can't really do anything but wait and hope for the best and if I'm not pregnant, then next month is another month! Fingers crossed for you Khud!
Thanks again ladies :)

Feefee- I'm not sure it's sunk in yet. It's definitely all I've been thinking of for more than the past week and I just got the BFP on Wednesday. I'm more scared than anything else right now. I don't want to do anything wrong. I go back to work in a week and a half, but so far, still no symptoms. I've been meaning to tell you that I'm so impressed with your dedication and weight loss!! You're definitely making a strong healthy home to grow a little nugget. I hope you get one as a birthday present

Ju6a really quick one from me

MrsA don't feel silly we all started out not knowing a thing lol. Temping is simply just getting a basal body temperature thermometer (specially for temping) and taking your temperature either orally or vaginally at the same time every morning (you must have at least 3 hours of solid sleep to get your basal body temperature) and recording the temperature on an app such as fertility friend. When you get a temperature spike of at least three or days in a row you know you have ovulated. You can also add your OPK results into ff to get a more accurate results. The release of progesterone in the body causes a slight temperature increase that indicates ovulation.

Khud, I'm not sure about the oral but the topical ones definitely cross over. Best to avoid them all unless you really can't deal with it! I did find when I treated mine late in the pregnant (with approval from OB) that a combo of the cream and compeed patches cleared it up in 3 days!

Shia, the app is Baby Pics! I used it all through my pregnancy too! It's worth the paid app ons! I'm considering going on the mini pill, I'll prob get the prescription from my OB when I see her in two weeks fir my check up (she does an 8 week check instead of 6). I definitely don't want to fall pregnant while Harry is so young, and I want to get my body back lol! Are you thinking if going on BC? Also is your 6 week check up this week? And Miss A's? The community nurse didn't come out until last week so her next check will be in a few weeks just before she is 8 weeks! Have you got the wonder weeks app?

Feefee, you'll definitely be preggo before I start tying again!

Welcome mrsA!

AFM, not much is happening. My husband spent the last week at home in paternity leave and is back to work today.
We started giving Harriet a dummy on Friday as she self sooths by sucking her hands and anything else she can reach. It's worked wonders! We're pretty strict with it though. She only gets it if she's been feed and when she is crying/won't settle. If she spots it out she doesn't get it back.we used it to put her to bed with last night and it only took 20mins! Much better than 4 hours! As soon as she was in the bassinet she spat it out.

Hi everyone,

I'm new here, but I have been reading the forums for a few weeks. I am 12 dpo and this is our first month TTC. I tested yesterday and got two faint lines on a first response test and on a dollar tree test. I took a clear blue digital and it came out negative. Since this is out first month I can't really compare it to anything else but since ovulation I have been having lots of symptoms: sore boobs, super bloated, very tired, my temperature has been high. I would love to hear what you think. I will not test until Wednesday (14 dpo). may be I just tested too soon?

Hi Ladies

Ju111 - Welcome to the group!
Like Mglupe said digitals aren't as sensitive so it may take a few more days to show on one of them but the other two look like positives!

Mglupe - how are you doing?

Ewar - that's nice your Husbands been off so you can have some family time together!
I apparently loved a dummy when I was little and my parents struggled to get it off me lol so limiting the time with it is a good thing!
I hope so, not sure how much longer I can keep waiting for my little miracle!

Shia, Beth,Missk (anyone else I've missed off) hope your all doing well?

AFM - I'm 5DPO today and apart from sore boobs which is usual Im the same as ever! Although was so tired when I got in from work tonight my Husband found me asleep on our bed whilst I waited for him to get back so we could go for a run together!
I got up and did the run which woke me up but found it really really hard tonight and now I'm exhausted!

Really looking forward to my nice long weekend off to celebrate turning 30 so that'll take my mind off AF who is due a week tomorrow!
But at least I can then get booked in for my HSG so I'll feel like it was worth it as we will get to see if there are any issues!!

Best wishes and love to all!

Hi feefee, make sure you take some motrin or tylenol on the day of the HSG test. Sorry to say but its painful :(. It was the worst pain ever for about 5 to 10 seconds lol. Why do you have to wait so long after the test to see the doc? They get the result right there. It makes me mad when they just keep extending our stress.
Make sure you dont over work your self, take it easy my doc always say the two week wait you must think you are prego. Dont do any thing that can jeopardise it.
How is eveyone else doing. As for me. Reading ivf stuff. Rf is late 2 days now and no sign of it. Tested this morning negative. I dont understand why my cycle are getting longer. They were 28 day now is 30 plus day. I now i ovulated on cd 13 so rf should have been here on sunday. Not sure if the suppliments im taken might anything to do with it. But i have read the they dont interfere with the hormone. Just incase any of you know any different. This is what im taken. Coq10 600m royal jelly , maca, drea, prenatal, ubiquinol 300. Let me know :) mu hair is longer and my nails are growing strong. But what the heck no baby :)

Hi Mglupe

Yeah I have been told to take pain relief beforehand as it can be quite uncomfortable so thanks for the advice!

It's because I'm in the UK and we have everything done on the NHS (so it's free but takes a long time).
They will probably be able to tell me/I will be able to see if there is anything wrong on the day anyway.

The consultant said to go back in 12 weeks as the number of woman who fall pregnant straight after having the test done is very high so they want to give us 2 months to see if a "clear out" helps?

Obviously if the test shows obvious blockages I will ring everyday for any cancellation appts that I can get so we can get things started earlier!

How weird that your cycles are getting longer?
Glad to hear your hair and nails are in great condition because of the supplements your taking!
Sorry I don't know if any of them would effect your cycle length but I guess it must do if your sure you definitely O on CD13?

Hi Ladies

Well I have just rung up for my swab results so I can be prepared to ring when AF starts to book in for the tube test only to be told one of the results came back positive.

It wasn't for anything bad but for BV (Bacterial Vaginosis) which is a very mild infection (something to do with PH levels in the vagina).

So I have to have a round of antibiotics for that to help it clear up (the woman said if I wasn't having this tube test they wouldn't treat it normally as it's not an issue) and most woman have it and don't even know (like me).

So got to do that and go back afterwards for another swab test to check it's cleared it up but it means I wont be able to have the tube test in August it'll be Sept now!

So annoyed and feel dirty even though I know I'm clean of any actual disgusting disease and this is a natural thing that happens!

It means more waiting around and less chance of us falling pregnant before the next appt in October!

Sorry just had to come on and have a whinge with someone, haven't told Carl yet dreading it in case he things I'm dirty!!!
