Hello Hello,

I love these forums. I use to visit baby and bump when I was TTC #1 in 2016 . It took us a very nerve racking time before finally get a big fat positive. BnB helped me through all my worries and really hoping through this next adventure. I am currently still breastfeeding as well, with a very active 1 year old. I haven't even had AF since my son's birth! This will certainly be an interesting journey.

Hello everyone, welcome TWIN58

So sorry for your stress at work this week flou

I'm CD9, getting close to a positive on my OPK so that's nice. Last cycle I was actually late (NEVER happens but *maybe* once a year) but literally the moment I got home from buying a hpt from the store I started spotting - it was fab. We're on month 8/cycle 10 of trying and I'm really feeling down about it lately. It's just so tiresome because I really, really don't know how to keep myself from obsessing every single cycle and the waiting is just grating on my nerves. I was really hoping it wouldn't take us as long the second time around but the outlook feels so bleak right now.

Sorry for the negativity, I needed a vent :-/

Lilac that's me too. I think I'm at cycle 7 or somethingish. I am trying not to worry cause It took 10 months with dd and I had no posotive tests at all in my journey til her and now with my regular bf of dd I've been told it might take longer cause my lining isn't getting very thick and it would not support a pg. Who knows how many cycles I could have been if not for the bf. On top of everywhere I look I see new babies or pregnant women

Hello everyone

Babybum35 I know what you mean about everyone else being pregnant! It feels like *everyone* is getting pregnant but I also feel like this last holiday season was really a time of miscarriages as well
Are you going to do anything special to try to thicken your lining or just see how it goes? I think I heard something like increasing consumption of animal products was supposed to help in that area??

I'm feeling a bit more positive today, haha. I believe I'm either O'ing today or 1dpo. I got positive OPKs on Sunday and Monday and some good cramping this morning. I actually put on a heating pad it was so uncomfortable, does anyone know if using a heating pad would have been a bad idea? Lol I'm paranoid. Something else I thought of yesterday that I'm stressing over is possibly having BV??? I haven't really found a new provider yet but I'm nervous and am thinking about getting tested because I noticed a somewhat fishy odor just after BD last month. Nothing right now but I'm still anxious.

I hope everyone else well

Hi... Yea it sucks to be the last one standing and I feel blessed I've had no known losses. That said the only way for me to really increase my lining is to wean dd. She's just over 2 so she really doesn't need it and right now we only bf for naps and bed and then she half wakes at night for comfort sucking so maybe 3-5 minutes total. I'm not really prepared to force her to wean mostly cause I know I will never get this time back and I want to cherish it and though I do have baby fever I would be OK if she was the only.
As for the rest of your post I'm not sure what bv is... Is that a yeast thing??? If so you can do some OTC stuff like monistat to see if it helps. The heating pad thing I wouldnt worry I think it is only a problem once baby is bigger and realistically that first month there's no way to know till you test so if you need it to it.
I am currently one day late but took a test yesterday and bfn. Won't test again till Friday cause even when late my period generally starts within 3-4 days of my app predictions. Its a good thing but not when TTC. I just want af to start or have a bfp not be stuck in limbo land

Babybum35 fingers crossed the witch stays away for you!

Lilac I hope you caught the egg!

Work continues to be stressful. My immediate boss has just gone off on long term sick. I have just been promoted into their position while they are off but there is a strong possibility this could be a permanent move. This is a great opportunity for me career wise but I could do without the extra stress at the mo. It will all settle down but its just a bit crazy. At least I am not thinking too much about the tww! AF is due early next week, maybe she might stay away....
