It'd be very nice to get our bfps, go to sleep and wake up with a healthy newborn?!

Shame it's an impossibility. I hate the worry of pregnancy, but I love having a tiny little life growing inside me ❤️

It's such a shame some of us have to find it so difficult. I'm so jealous of people like my friend who's due the same time I was meant to be, who just take one test, get their BFP, accept they're pregnant and that's that. I wish it was that simple for me and I didn't have to worry every single day. I know testing obsessively doesn't change the outcome, but I'll probably still end up doing it. It also makes me so mad that so many people can get pregnant so easily without even trying, who don't look after themselves at all, and don't want a baby at all. But don't get me started on all that again!

Lora I just went back on eBay to try find the 5.50 FRERs so I could get some more stocked up, but there's none left at that price, not surprisingly! The cheapest I could find tonight was 6.50 for two with free P&P which isn't too bad. The 5.50 ones were free P&P too, and there were quite a lot when I got them last month but obviously was a bargain and they got snapped up! I find it awkward buying them in the shops, had a bad experience once in Boots which I ended up complaining about after some girls on here said I should, and they gave me 50! Which I've probably spent in there on more HPTs! I also worry about bumping into anyone I know and having to explain myself. Like a dirty addict!

Totally know what you mean about the urge to have a baby, I didn't realise I wanted the next one so bad until I lost one, now I feel bad every day about the age gap between DD and the next getting bigger, and wish we'd started TTC a year ago at least. I only planned on having two kids, but now I can imagine still wanting another baby once number two is here, they grow so fast.

It's a shame it's so hard for some of us.

I am actually pretty scared of getting pregnant again. I desperately want my rainbow but the thought of pregnancy is so scary.

We have agreed to wait until after Leila's funeral to even talk about it.

Xx

On a 28 day cycle the usual time to ovulate is cd14 so as you said 8/9 Oct. But you could ovulate earlier or later.

Have you tried opks? Temping is a bit stressful so I'd say to start with opks. I get a pack of 20 from amazon for a few quid. I start on cd 9 and when I get the positive (test line same or darker than control) I usually ovulate 24-48 hours later.
I've been thinking of using them, but I think I'm going to take the chance this month & hope I get pregnant.. Dtd every other day should do it! Haha. If not then next cycle I'm going to use OPKs. I just know they'll stress me out if I start using them this cycle
Good plan. I find I feel more stressed if I don't use OPKs, they help me feel I have some kind of control over what's going on! But then again I need to rely on them with my cycles being a bit temperamental. Fingers crossed you won't need to bother with them!
Ad daft as it may sound.. I feel as if I use them & I didn't get pregnant.. If blame myself I didn't because I didn't use the OPKs properly so going to miss this cycle, hoping I get pregnant.. If not then I'll buy some

Morning ladies! Sorry to dive right in without reading posts, but if I don't ask now I will forget lol!

So, AF. It's not been any heavier than usual (has been quite clotty though) but it has been longer- the bleedings tailing off so that'll be 7 days of bleeding compared to my usual 5.

My question is- does a longer Af delay ovulation? Or is ovulation kick started by the first day of Af? I know its only a couple of days but every extra day of waiting is a pain in the backside.
I had a look at my journal after losing alfie and ttc alice.

My first Af came after 6 weeks and then my following cycle was also 6 weeks- I'm praying that doesn't happen this time!

Hope everyone's ok today? I'm a bit fed up but I have a friend coming for lunch so something to look firwRd to at least xx

Hey Lora,

Sorry you're fed up, hopefully your friend can cheer you up a bit and your day gets better. My friend who I seem to moan about a lot on here offered to take me for lunch today, I've still not see her since my mc so nearly a month now. I keep putting it off but thought it was a bad idea to go for lunch anyway seeing as I was signed off work, wouldn't want anyone to see me and think I was taking the mick. Also have DD with me so lunch is pretty impossible with her these days. She's at nursery tomorrow so I'm taking advantage and using an afternoon tea voucher with my mum, somewhere I'm unlikely to bump into anyone who knows me.

Good question about AF but unfortunately I don't have an answer to it. I would guess AF length isn't linked to ovulation, but only because I sometimes have irregular cycles but AF is always the same length, so my ovulation doesn't seem to be linked to my AF when it sometimes only takes me two weeks to ovulate after AF, but sometimes takes four, it must be linked to something else if that makes any sense at all?!

Top of the morning to you ladies,

Congratulations Vicky!!!

Still no change on this end. Still waiting for AF to show and it feels like she is teasing me. I've been PMSing (if that's a word) for the last week or so. I am so ready for her to come.

Have a wonderful day ladies!

Lora, don't know if this will answer your question or even help you.. But with me, my periods can last either 3 days or 5 days. But no matter now long they are I still come on my period the same day each month which is a Saturday (28 day cycle). So surely I ovulate the same time to get my period the same time?

Hope that makes sense
