Jessy I know the feeling, I would love to not work but then I love my job and iv worked hard for my qualifications and wouldn't want to just walk away from it. Maybe be nice to work less hours but we made the decision to move to the country and mortgage too much for dh alone. Hope you o soon I hate the wait!

Sooo, I took two opk's today. I did 2 because the first one had a dye run so I did the second one and it also has a dye run! Oh well. It's allmmoosstttt positive so I'll try to bd tonight. If I don't succeed tonight then I will definitely hold dh down and make him tomorrow haha! I got my new soft cups and opk's in today! I'm so excited to try to use the soft cup tonight and will be very disappointed if I can't get dh to dtd tonight. I'll post a picture of the opk's...

The dye runs are from 2 different batches of the same brand opk's so I thought it was weird that I got a dye run on both of them!

Cupcake - No I'm not tracking. Maybe further down the line I might start, but I feel like it would do me more harm than good. I feel like I'll start over thinking it all and worrying if I don't get a positive if using opks so for now I'm just going with the flow a bit.

Duster & cupcake - You're probably both right, I shouldn't count myself out. I really don't think it's happened this month though. I'd be so so excited if it had but I've seriously counted myself well out already.

On the fussy eating, he used to be pretty good for eating veg, I could make curries and pastas with veg in them just chopped up small and he'd eat it all. Now, he puts any vegetable in his mouth announces "I don't like it" and then that's it, he's done! He would happily eat nuggets and chips every meal!

Messy play outside is the best idea! I'm def doing that once it's warmer. Then I might get to have a snooze on my sun lounger while he covers himself in paint!

Citrus - I'm not going to test until at least the 8th as that would be a day late based on my first cycle of bcp. Before my cycles were 29days and I think my first one off was 32 days, so 8th will be the first day 'late'. Looking forward to seeing you all posting some tests though and cheering you all on!

Ladders - I know, food! I love it. I finish eating one meal and start planning what I'm going to have for the next! Me & hubby are off out for a meal at the weekend and I've drooled over the menu multiple times already, can't wait!

Jesse - I often think I would love to be a stay at home mum, but I was off all last week with ds, and as much as I loved having time with him it made me realise that for me & him, me working is best. I enjoy being an adult and he has a fab time at his childminders with other kids. Everyone is different and I know plenty of people that are or would love to be sahms, but I think working is best for me for my sanity. I only do 3 days a week though but I feel like that's the perfect balance for me between being me and being a mum!

Ok first I have to ask a question because all you ladies seem to be geniuses with your smilies (the smilies you use from your phones and/or tablets), I use my iPad and each time I try to use any smilies from it they show up as black question marks on here? How do you do it? TELL ME YOUR SECRETS! Lol!

Kim, I have a fascination with serial killers and have done for years, in fact I was so obsessed I was planning on studying criminology and/or forensic psychology. So this is why I enjoy The Bates Motel so much. It isn't a horror so much though, so I find it easier to watch, despite it being extremely depraved and disturbing in some episodes.

Duster, pleased I won't be alone in having the patience of a toddler lol! Your home life sounds fascinating by the way.

Citrus, sounds like you timed things good for a girl, fingers crossed!
I think I will probably give in to test from 7dpo but I will try to wait until 9dpo which I think is Tuesday. I'm 4dpo today according to Fertility Friend.

Oh gosh Ladders if I had a quid for each time I heard someone's health visitor was rubbish, I would be rich. Ours was so awful (and we only saw her twice!) we told them we didn't want anything more to do with the health visiting service and I plan on keeping it this way. I don't want their involvement after how they were before. You aren't rubbish, they are!
I'm vegetarian too so would completely become attached to those chicks lol! Here we have far too many cats, a dog, a boa and a bearded dragon.

Ooo Kim those are so close to positive! I hope you get along with your zombiefied soft cups

Daisies my eldest became so fussy his diet consisted of sausage and chips, English mustard, chocolate spread sandwiches, Marmite on toast... that's about it! Until he was 9, and then he started to try things more and his diet these days is much better and he will give anything a try.
I wish in a way I could take a more relaxed approach but I have a compulsion to know everything and look out for every single sign and keep track, it's an obsession. I don't find it detrimental but it can sometimes take up too much time especially when it's time to test with hpts because I take a million photos and scrutinise them all!
I know you feel out but I don't believe in out if you have dtd until af shows. So I'm keeping everything crossed for you

Daisies, I know what you mean about being you and being mom. I feel the same way. Honestly the only thing I miss about working is the money. I was a manager at a major retail store and was on salary. I worked 70+ hrs a week but still made the same amount of money I would have if I actually only worked the required 45hrs a week. I do miss working because I get so lonely during the day but that's because my kids are all in school so I'm home by myself all day. I don't miss telling and showing everyone what to do and them not doing it. I swear my kids could have done a better job than any of my employees therefore I always had to stay late to make sure everything was done so I wouldn't get in trouble for it. I had to fire all my employees one day and I worked by myself all day that day till I finally had some employees from another store come to mine so I could interview new people, hire and train them the way I wanted them to be trained. Then I finally was able to work only the required 45hrs a week and had more time to spend with my family. I only quit because I had a miscarriage and my general manager forced me to go in to work on the same day right after I left the hospital. So a few days later I went in, handed them my keys and all my codes and deposit slips and walked out and never looked back. I do miss having my own money though.

Hahaha Happycupcake! My zombiefied soft cups had BETTER be used tonight! Lol! I have also always been intrested in forensic science and criminology! I used to say I was going to be a CSI when I got older. Then life happened lol so that didn't work out for me lol I can only use the smilies when I add pictures because I'm on my phone and I have to go advanced then when I add the picture there's a box to the right with all the smilies in it. I just pick the one I want and voila! There it is 😊 (IDK if you can see that one but it's an emoji on my phone lol)

Yes it's the emojis from my iPad which won't show and it's annoying me! I bet if it try it it will be a question mark... �� I do see yours and it looks like my emojis on this.
It's a fascinating subject and I started it with social science but didn't continue because I miscarried right after finishing that course and haven't started another which I would love to and ought to but it's finding the time.
I hope you get lots of BDing in this evening

At first dh told me no. After pouting and feeling sorry for myself I decided to wake him up with kisses all over and that did the trick! I finally got to use my soft cup and I'm Wayyy more excited about it than I should be haha! Dh was also interested in the soft cups lol I didn't tell him about it till afterwards but now I think he's actually excited that he doesn't actually HAVE to dtd the next couple of days. He can just lay there and I'll do all the work and make sure he finishes IN the soft cups and we'll be done with it. I'm sorry this is alll way too much tmi but I think we've all gotten past the tmi point 😉😊😊

Yeah, Happycupcake I see what you mean. It's just showing the black question marks. I wonder why it's doing that? Hmm... Weird. I don't think there's ever going to be a right time to go back for another course if that's what you want to do. I would love to be able to go back to school but I don't think I could get financial aid and definitely couldn't afford it. I'm sorry you miscarried when you were going last time 😞 I hope eventually you get to go back and finish and be in a profession that you'll love to do. I've noticed you're a very inquisitive person so I think you'll be great at it!
