TTC #2 as of Valentines Day! Buddy? :)
Implant is coming out on Valentines Day (I didn't pick that day on purpose lol) and would love a TTC buddy for #2! 👶🏻

Guess not :(

Hiya ! M
Don't be discouraged :) I would love to be your buddy .

I am Ttc# 3

I have a daughter just turned 5 and an 18 month old son.

We planned to try from next cycle ( period due Valentine's Day) but we did bd just the once this current cycle and as it was on cd 13 - I've counted myself as being in a bit of a tww although I feel it's unlikely . I have no idea when I ovulated but plan to start chatting next cycle .

Do you have any plans to help you ttc or taking it easy ? Xx

Hi, can I join?

TTC #2 as of March. AF due any day now, unless we've had a happy accident, that would be good! So once she comes I'm on CD1. Do either of you feel considerably less excited for TTC #2 than #1? It's making me a bit sad that I don't have the same level of naive excitement but I know what will be coming...! My LO is nearly 2.

Hi citrus fruit :)

Where are you in your cycle now ? I think I'm around ovulation in next few days - can't be too sure though !

Ttc # 1 was very quick for us - we did try but didn't do anything other than stop using birth control and were so surprised to get a bfp 1st time !

2nd baby -took 16 months! I believe lifestyle , stress, pressure , diet had something to do with that .

Hoping this one won't take as long and actually I'm feeling pretty excited because this will be our last baby ( well that's what hubby says- and he's prob right ) and so I want to enjoy every second - including ttc because if all goes to plan, we will never do this again!

Hey! Well actually I am due AF now. I'm kind of getting my hopes up for a happy accident as we weren't trying last month but don't think it will be! So will be officially CD1 any day now I imagine. If no AF by weds then I will test.

We conceived number 1 really quick and I am just hoping, and a little bit presuming if I'm honest, that no 2 would be the same. It's dangerous! I think I'd find it really hard if it took a long time!

Can I join your happy crew? We started trying for #2 on Valentine's Day!

fuschia Mar 1st, 2017 09:00 AM

Hello :)

Yes - I'm really keen to get a nice little group together .

When ttc my second I had a lovely little group of about 6 ladies and few of us were very active and few would come and go but we were really hopeful for each other :)

Citrus fruit - did AF come on time or did you get your happy accident ?

I am just waiting to ovulate... Think it might be today ! Getting tired with so much bding !

I'm keen too! I was part of an amazing community of about 500 mums due in June 2014, that stuck together and stayed very active until around the 18 months old mark. It was such a wonderful experience and I'm looking forward to participating again with #2.

This is my first time trying to conceive and I am super excited!!! It's also going to be great to share the journey with you ladies!!!! Sounds like you are a bit ahead of me Citrus, having done this TTC thing before. Fuschia and I are on about the same page. I was between birth control methods for a single month, we used withdrawal instead of condoms. I told hubby on his birthday that I was pregnant but didn't do him the solid of pissing on a stick until two days later :haha:

I'm also outright terrified of ttc. I had a miscarriage long before I had my "surprise!" daughter. I don't know if my daughter was a miracle baby. I've got no solid reason to believe I have fertility problems, but since we decided to TTC I looked over my last year of casual charting my cycle and wasn't pleased by what I found :nope: If my ovulation pain and ewcm are indicative of ovulation, I O on cycle day 8-10. Then my luteal phase is a solid 16-18 days. Cycles vary from 24 days to 29 days. I don't think that's good.

Soooo starting tomorrow I will be temping. Next cycle I will be using OPKs and checking cervix every day.

AF is due on 3/5 so I am in the TWW right now. Nothing but :bfn: so far. I'll link you to my obsessive log of symptom spotting and cut this post off here :spermy:

fuschia Mar 2nd, 2017 00:29 AM

I think that the only issue as far as I am aware is a short luteal phase ? Your luteal phase I think needs to be 10 days long . Also - have you been temping ? I get lots of Ov symptoms in the 4-5 days before ovulation so if you are going by symptoms alone it may be that you are estimating ovulation to be earlier than it is ? Cd8-10 sounds quite early .

I am pretty disappointed not to not see my temperature rise today but still pretty confident ovulation may have bees yesterday or today !
