TTC #2, 9th cycle ......

Postby Cball » Fri Mar 07, 2014 4:49 am

Hi there,
With have been ttc #2 not for 9 months, since 1st was 6 months old.
Never been on contraception, feel pregnant in second cycle with first.
Have been actively trying, using ovulation sticks and preseed and still no luck :(
I was a 28 day girl before first, am now a 31 day girl, and ovulate every month on cd17.
Feel so helpless, and need some hope!
Have booked to see a kineasologist next week on recommendation from a friend who was ttc #2 for 6 months and feel pregnant two weeks after seeing this woman, have also booked a holiday for the week of ovulation this month! Any other tips/advice/hope ?!!!!

I'm starting those too :( Still not pregnant after 12 months. I feel your pain (litterally).

The tests are a pain too, I missed CD3 this cycle and looks like I'm going to be away for CD3 again :doh:
BFP on Friday Feb 3rd 2017 but ended in miscarriage at 7 1/2 weeks :(

Didn't chart this time, last time was TTC for over a year, BFP chart from daughter :D :

Me again! I know this is not a post where anyone is having conversations so I'm seeing it as more as my blog and as I know through my ttc time I take comfort is seeing peoples stories and definitely their progress and outcome, so this is for everyone who has looked at my post but not commented!

We have just passed our 12th month, so will now be going in to our second year! my AF is due today and I am sure it will show it's ugly face!

All my blood tests came back fine and show I am ovulating normally, hubby's SA is in 2 weeks time which inconveniently falls the day or two after ovulation, which is annoying as it means he has to abstain from "ejaculation for approx 5 days prior to the test, so having sex within my fertile window is a no-no!
That being said I'm quite looking forward to a month off with no tww!

Xx

i guess it's good to know that nothing is "wrong" except for then it's even more frustrating that you're not getting pregnant.....My LO is almost the same age as yours and I always am thinking about how old she will be when the next one is finally here....i wanted them to be close together, as i'm sure you did. So Frustrating!!

I had my mc when my son was 2, my sister got pg at the same time and has a healthy now 2 yo boy. I watch them play together and think how perfect it would've been. Even if I'm pg RIGHT NOW, DS will be almost 5 1/2 before new baby arrives. I just SO wanted them to be best friends!

Ekko and tarvink defo know what u mean with age gaps, I really wanted them to be in the school year below the first one. But never mind I do have good news though, I am pregnant!!! It's been a crazy few days, here's the follow up to my journey

So this was our 13th month ttc, this is the month my hubby had his SA which happened a few days before ovulation, we dtd every other day from cd8(so that's cd 8.10,12,14,16) on cd 17 I got my first positive opk do we dtd cd 17,18,19,20 and one for luck on cd 22 ( like the smep) I also used softcups for the first time this month, I used after every bd.

Dpo

1-8 no symptons
9dpo - huge temp drop
10dpo- huge temp rise (implantation is flagging in my mind at this stage)tested BfN
11dpo hot flushes big time and really hungry when first woke up
12dpo same as 11dpo, went to work held pee alday and tested at 3.30pm with a cb digital- BFP!!!!! Aaa ahhhh went over to chemist boots picked up another pack of home brand digital to test again, tested again at 6pm with held urine since first test, another BFP on boots digital!!!!
13dpo- woke up, thought why not use fmu with left over digital from boots, tested BfN ?!!! What ? So upset and confused. Went out bought another pack of sainsburys digitals and a cheap 99p pack, held urine and tested at 3pm ish, still BFN on digital but faded line on cheapie.
14dpo - fmu faded line on left over cheapie test, held urine all day, bought cb frer which gives a plus or minus sign, tested at 4pm ish, big fat cross, big fat BfP! Still feeling hot flushes, hungry and nauseas kicked in so know I am DEFINaTELY pregnant, however just letting everyone know u can get buns and bfps all dependant on your urine, the tests etc.
I had a cheapie left over so yest I tested again lol, at 17dpo and the line was really really strong! I'm officially 5weeka and 1say so hoping to god for a sticky baby xxxxx
