Hi ladies, AF got me earlier today I'm gutted, but I guess on a positive note my luteal phase was 13 days this month so fingers crossed for next month.
It's just a shame because people say you are very fertile after having a baby, and at the moment I feel like that is true for me... I've been having 5 or 6 days of fertile CM before Ov, but still haven't been able to conceive. I hope a longer LP will carry on for me and that I won't be sat here in floods of tears again next month. I really wanted a 2 year age gap or less between #1 and #2.
Aw sorry to here your AF caught up with you today but glad there are still some positives
Fingers crossed that next month is your month
I'm still hanging in there but after having a few promising symptoms in the last couple of days i'm starting to feel like my AF is coming too
We'll soon see now I guess... x
Hard luck EverythingXd, just think next month could be your month. I find it soooo disappointing when AF arrives but try to tell myself that I will get at least a whole month more to devote 100% of myself to my LO (and DH of course!). And I feel very blessed having them both, anything else will be a bonus.
Sorry to hear about your mmc in November and hope you get your BFP so you don't need those OPK's.
If your AF does get you this month OPK's are probably the way forward though. With your cycle being a bit all over the place i'm sure they would help you get that BFP.
Good luck and I hope AF stays away this cycle.
lots of to you x
Starlight - still got my fingers crossed for you, and I'll keep checking in this thread to see how you're getting on
Captain - someone else said to concentrate on what I have rather than what I don't have (yet), and it's true, I am so lucky. My LO is just perfect, I love him more than I can express. My OH is an awesome daddy and hubby Before I had LO I thought I would never get this crazy again if I tried for another, but I'm as obsessed about it as I was the first time!
Hi MrsWhy - good luck for this cycle, and I'd recommend giving OPKs a go if your cycle is a bit erratic.
Popped in to see my HV today at a breastfeeding clinic to talk to her about stopping BFing my LO (he's just down to an evening/night feed now) and I burst into tears in front of her and 2 complete strangers... I'm an emotional wreck over this TTC malarkey! Anyway, she reckons there are loads of women conceiving babies over the age of 40 now and said I shouldn't worry so much.
I'm glad your health visitor gave you some supportive encouragement and hope you feel at least a bit better.
My AF due to arrive tomorrow and I won't be surprised if she does as I'm cramping now, although I guess I have been on and off for the past two weeks.
I'm trying not to stress out about it so I can get a decent nights sleep. Stressing wont help anyways and as Captainj1 said it's good to be happy for what we already have x
Hope you ladies are all ok? I'm a bit surprised as my AF hasn't arrived on schedule!
Still feels like she's going too but my cycles have been 27 days exactly again since December (were still a bit all over the place after having my LO until then) so may be a good sign?!?
Got a BFN at two days after AF should have arrived.
I'm soo gutted. Not so much because of the BFN because it's been our first month of NTNP (disappointed yes but not gutted) but because I honestly thought my cycles were back to normal and I was regular again after being bang on 27 days for the past four months but clearly they're not
I just really hope AF arrives now so we can get on with it again...
