9 dpo. If I had money I would be testing tomorrow. Lol I am having symptoms come and go. Some I control because I won't eat the food that makes me feel ill lol but new stuff crops up. Had an egg salad sandwich that tasted rancid first bite (there was nothing wrong with it). Had some cramping, twinges, amd pulling in my abdomen area. I am still 9 days from af being due so I don't think that is it. I usually cramp during af not before. So I am optimistic this may be something.

I am tempted to go buy a dollar store test. I know it will be negative because they aren't that sensitive and on my last bfp I didn't get a positive on a frer until 13dpo. But it may just scratch the poas itch.

Aayla I know what you mean, sometimes I stock up on those cheapies just so I don't have to feel bad when I test, even when I know there's no way nothing will show up

I feel af coming on :/ I'm a little bummed but also relieved to be out of limbo and moving onto a new cycle.

I'm wondering if any of you ladies take extra vitamins or supplements that aid in ttc? Like raspberry leaf or vitex or anything like that?

Sorry to hear that tcinks. Way to look on the bright side though! I'll have to practice that myself next week, me thinks.

I'm taking Rainbow Light prenatals. They have all the normal stuff and some extra goodies like raspberry leaf and probiotics. They're great cause the iron doesn't upset the stomach. I also take vegan DHA and some CoQ10 every day.

I might start drinking rrl tea again. I know it's great in the third trimester, but I'd forgotten it was good early on too. How's it help with ttc?

Hi ladies I would like to join you if that's ok? Here's a bit about me

I'm Kirsty, I'm 27 and live in the uk. DH and I got married in July 2014 and have been TTC ever since. My doctor and I had suspected that I had PCOS from the age of 20 but just ignored it and took the pill to avoid symptoms. I also have a history of problems with my cervix - it's tilted, it's a long way back and it's intermittently got abnormal cells. So I see a gynae regularly to be checked.

Once I came off the pill I had a couple of "normal" cycles but I always ovulated in cd20 or later. By Dec 2014 the pill was obviously out of my system. That cycle lasted 76 days and was followed by two exceptionally short anovulatory cycles.
April 2015 I was formally diagnosed with PCOS by ultrasound scan and blood tests - my hormone levels were way out of whack. Unfortunately that wasn't enough to get me referred to a specialist - we had to have been trying for a year.

We continued to TTC and I took soy isoflavones for four months to mimic clomid and try to make me ovulate. I had been temping since October and could see quickly that my cycles were improving, I was ovulating regularly (though still late between cd18-24), baby dancing on the right days but I still wasn't pregnant.

In July 2015 we finally got our referral through and things moved quite quickly - hsg to check my tubes were clear (they were), sperm analysis for DH (perfectly normal) and more blood tests (progesterone still iffy) so we were given clomid to start in sept.

Clomid has much improved my cycles - they are now 29 days, I definitely ovulate and in November I actually ovulated on CD 15 which seemed like a miracle. Even more so when I got my BFP on 11th December (10dpo). My lines gradually got darker over the next few days and the digital said 1-2 weeks when AF was due. All very promising. A week after my first BFP the frer I took was really nice and dark. And then I woke up the next morning to find I was bleeding. I went to the hospital where they confirmed it was a miscarriage at 4 weeks 5 days.

I'm currently CD16 based on when the bleeding started (though i should possibly base it on when hcg reached <5 in which case I'm currently cd14) and my OPKs are just about positive so I should ovulate in the next 3 days. This has been the longest 16 days of my life!
