Maybe the stretchy mucus was just a little bit left over from when you were fertile Starlight, and it was IB. I really hope so
Dan-o I saw in your sig that you had a molar pregnancy, that must've been really tough. My friend had the same thing a couple of years back and also had to have chemo for it.
AFM, no sign of AF yet but I'm only 10dpo so it is still early. I just expect my LP to be shorter this month. I am convinced I'm not pregnant though, partly to protect myself cos I don't want to get my hopes up to be knocked down. Also everything's been the same this month symptom-wise as the last few months. When I conceived my LO I had lots of clumpy CM (sorry TMI) and a major blocked nose at implantation which I'm sure was caused by the eggy.
I really hope you are pregnant everything. Remember symptoms can be different for different pregnancy's
I hope you're right about the stretchy mucous, I never thought of that...
Fingers crossed for both of us x
Well, I'm out this month. AF arrived a few hours ago, and I feel like I've been kicked in the belly. I am looking forward to my new cycle though, and at least this one was only 28 days. Plus LP was 11 days so although it was a bit shorter than last month, it was still in the 'normal' range so I'm happy about that.
Got my fingers crossed for everyone else in their 2ww
Sorry for your news EverythingXd, I know that feeling when AF arrives and it isn't nice huh. But good news about your LP, and may May be your month!
I'm 6 or 7 dpo and no symptoms so far other than my usual pre AF ones so not hopeful, although the month I conceived my son I was sure AF was coming so won't rule myself out just yet. Planning to test on Friday morning if she isn't here by then.
I've had a great day today, me and DH and my brother went down to wembley for the FA cup Semi final and we won so was worth the trip and made me feel at least that I enjoyed the day despite leaving my son with the in laws all day.
Sorry the witch arrived Everything but great news that your LP was within normal range for the second month running
Sounds like you've had a fab day Captain and have my fingers crossed your pre AF symptoms are actually early pregnancy ones
As for me I've had a bit of cramping and slightly achey boobies, both of which I had when I was newly pregnant with Maia but both of which equally signal the imminent arrival of AF.
What is different to normal is my skin has broken out in spots and I have a couple of nasty mouth ulcers on my tongue. I'm shattered too. Again could be symptoms but may be as I've had a more stressful month than usual and Maia seems to have gone off going to sleep which means I'm bound to be knackered
Anyway, AF due Tues or Wed so I thought if she didn't arrive I would test Friday too. Although if I could wait maybe Saturday as I'm working Friday and mornings are a big rush.
I better sign off now and try and sleep while I can, I'm up far too late again tonight...
I am new too this site and I am looking for similar ladies in my position who I can just chat too about stuff. When I read this thread I was so happy that are are other people who I can relate too.
A bit about me - I am 36 and have a beautiful 16 month old girl. I had a bit of a difficult time to begin with as I suffered 3 miscarriages prior to having her. So when she finally arrived I felt blessed that I had finally managed to conceive and have her!
So when me and my husband decided to try again for number 2 I did not think I would have any problems. Unfortunately though, I suffered my 4th miscarriage last november which affected me deeply as I thought after having my little girl I would have no problems again. 3 months later I fell pregnant again - or so I thought - I tested 2 weeks ago after the long 2ww and I had a very very faint positive so I was thrilled again, but this was short lived I had my period in the next couple of days day so i had suffered a chemical pregnancy.
I am now waiting for my ovulation day (7 days away).
I am desperate to conceive my 2nd baby, but I am worried now age isn't on my side. People say to me at least you already have 1 baby, but i need another one. xxxx
Hi Gracie1, welcome to the group! Really sorry to hear what a tough time you've been having, I've never suffered a miscarriage myself before so can't begin to understand how you must be feeling, but I'm sure some of the other ladies can relate. On the positive side it looks as though you don't have any problem falling pregnant so hopefully it will just be a matter of time. I am 36 and have a 17 month old son who took 7 months to conceive and am in my 4th cycle TTC#2. I have been having short cycles so am worried about declining egg quality, but keep reminding myself that fertility declines gradually rather than falling off a cliff so the odds of having another are still good.
I know we should all be grateful for the LO's that we have, and I know we all are truly grateful, but I also know that it doesn't make it any easier to deal with the TTC process for number 2. I'm surrounded at the moment by people who seem to get pregnant the first month of trying and it is frustrating! But equally I have close friends who have suffered multiple miscarriages and failed ivf and when i think of all that I really do feel humbled.
Hi Gracie1, nice to meet you
I'm so sorry to hear about what a difficult time your having and your miscarriages. It must be heartbreaking. Fingers crossed, as Captain says its just a matter of time for you and perhaps this cycle will be your cycle. In the meantime we're here to vent your frustrations. Always happy to chat
Also please don't feel bad about really wanting a second child. I think I can speak for all the ladies in this group that we all love our LO's to bits but just don't feel that our families are complete yet. This means TTC #2 is as important to us as it was the first time around, which some people don't understand.
Sticky to you xx
