MrsFX - I wonder why we call it AF? My aunts are nice and Flo certainly aint!
The normal ttc threads are indeed full of cries of if you so much as mention an itchy earlobe - I know it's all so exciting when you first set out (and expect to be pregnant within a year) but it all wears off when that LT gets added to the front of the TTC!
Hi Metalmom - we were trying for around 4 years too, and yes, it really really does grind you down
Hi Raz - glad you had a good time away, but sorry you got ill ... and even more of a bummer that the bloody witch got you too
FF I have a cbfm - it is very good for pinpointing O-day ... but no use for old farts like me whose eggs are duds
Hello and welcome Kerri - am sure you'll find us a friendly bunch ... just dive on in and you'll feel like an old hand in no time xx
AFM - had auditors in at work today (more like an inspection as it's not just finances they were looking at) so has been a very long one
Come home to lovely tea cooked by the lovely Mr Urch - and am now wrapped up warm in PJs
Ugg, having a rough day. Pretty sure I didn't ovulate on the Metformin + 100mg Clomid combo this month I was out of town when I would have gone in for a scan so I'm hoping I just missed it with the OPKs. Geesh, PCOS really sucks!
Thanks lucy lou i really hope this is ur month, Sorry to everybody the evil witch got. Welcome to the newbies xx I will upload a photo when i can get on my computer as i don't know how to do it from my phone. I hope everybody is well and gl for this cycle xx
FF I think if u only have £100 to spend on fertility spend it on some accupunture or something relaxing. For u and bd every other day.
Hopingandpraying: I am more positive cd3-25 I think. So a week a month of negatively isn't that bad. I just keep praying for patience. I pray that god knows when I will be blessed and that I can put it in his hands. That is tough tho.
Tash do share your tattoo it would be great to see it.
Urch: I hope that the auditors have packed up and u can enjoy the bank hol.
Afm: still waiting. Had a sore back for the past 24 hours and have visiting the loo on the hour (personally responsible for the east Anglian drought) and had a small trace of tainted cm which is one of my signs. Oh well Good Friday tomorrow the start of Easter. Yay!!
i have been thinking of testing the past few days but I don't know right now if I have the heart to deal with a which is all I have ever seen. Every time I don't get AF, even though my cycles are totally out of whack, and always have been, it makes me wonder if this month is the month.
I feel really tired right now, I have headaches, my tummy is bloated and my boobs hurt, but I am afraid to get my hopes up.
In Feb, around valentines day which would have been CD 20ish for me I did have a twinge type cramp on my right side. It may have been me O'ing, but I have never for sure had that happen so I have do clue what it even feels like. Same thing happened about a month later on Mar 14th. Still waiting to see if I get it again in Apr., no AF yet though.
I am not sure what constitutes LTTTC, but DH and I are on our 16th cycle ttc this month...trying for #1 and still nothing. Been to the docs and they don't see anything wrong with me. They're waiting on DH's 3rd SA to determine if there is anything seriously wrong with him that's causing infertility (the first SA wasn't a good sample, and they want to verify the second before drawing conclusions).
I have recently abandoned charting as I was starting to get obsessed with it, and stress = bad for ttc, so we'll see if that helps. I had a meltdown in Jan., when we hit our 13th month ttc, and I was a mess! Felt like the earth had dropped out from under me. Now, I can't even really say how I feel about ttc --I'm at the point where I'm just numb...
But enough of the debby downer stuff!! Let's see some BFPs! I wish you all much success and hope you all end your LTTTC journey soon!!
OMG girls! I tested and got a !!! The first true positive in my life. Then I cried before I told my DH. My FS confirmed it with positive blood test results that were doubling as to be expected!! OMG! OMG! This is so unreal that I cannot even start to believe it. Miracles really do happen girls, they really do!! I feel like without all of your support I wouldn't have made it here. So I want to thank you all from the very bottom of my heart, and I pray that you all get your bfps so so very soon. You girls are the bestest and deserve nothing less.
