CC- I'm really really sorry to hear that, big glad you are managing to stay positive. Love your comment about ovulation on a Sunday, I was just saying that to the hubby last night, far easier to fit in a morning session! There is no danger of that happening in our house before work!

Sooz - Good luck at your appointment today As for the monitor you POAS from cd5, the monitor will read the stick and give you a low, high or peak reading (complete with a picture of an egg when it hits peak)

Annaki - totally agree they are a bit crazy in there! Stayed away from it last month after stumbling in accidentally

Snuffles - my OPKs were better for me around 11-12pm. I think once you find your right time to test to stick to that. Also I don't know if it helps but in a book I was reading it suggests that you should actually be from when you see a faint second line so one not classed as positive as we can miss it if we wait to on the night of getting a positive especially if we ovulate on the day of getting the positive opk which quite a few woman do and my temps certainly suggest that I do

Mrs L - glad we have happy DH

Yeah I read somewhere to test between 11am and 14:30. And to hold your water for 4 hours but don't drink too much to dilute it.

Ooo I have another symptom! Sore boobies! Probably because AF is due. The nausea is still hanging around though. Come on Sunday!!!

Sorry I've not been on here for a few days, we don't have internet set up at home yet, and my internet allowance on my phone was taking a bit of a battering so having to cut down a bit!

CC, really sorry to hear your news. Well done for staying positive though - I guess for whatever reason it just wasn't that little egg's time

Sooz, good luck for this afternoon. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Annaki, join the club! POAS is just too tempting, isn't it?! I'm determined this cycle to wait until AF is due...but we'll see how that goes

Luvbug, you're about half-way through the TWW, hurrah! Not long now!

Trying, the CBFM looks really good - if nothing happens for us this cycle I might look into it.

Snuffles, hope your cycles start to regulate a bit more this month.

As for me, not much to report really. Trying to keep my mind off the TWW, and generally succeeding! Off to the Olympics tomorrow, which I'm SO excited about!

Big hugs to you all xxx

Watching the athletics (morning and evening session). I'm a massive athletics fan, so really can't wait! We'll catch the first day of the heptathlon, so hoping we'll be able to say we saw the beginning of Jess Ennis' gold medal triumph!! We're also going again on Tuesday, and will see Usain Bolt running - eek!

Banana...very jealous! Didn't bother trying for tickets but enjoying it on the tele! Go team GB!

Rig ladies, I know I said I was waiting until Sunday, but I have decided to test tomorrow! The only reason being; I have had sickness all day and felt crap and my sore boobies are telling me to test. Also, the CB digital ones state that they are 98% accurate -1 day of expected period (Saturday) and 97% accurate -2 day (tomorrow)...so thought I may as well!

I tested yesterday which was -4 which is only 55% accurate. Fingers crossed this sticky feeling means something!

Also, I learnt something today, my CB leaflet states that the test strip will tell you how pregnant you are, but your dooctor will date your pregnancy by adding two more weeks, for e.g, it may say 1-2 weeks pregnant, but really your 3-4. So pregnancy is therefore dates from your first cycle day not O day...am I thick or did everyone else know this? Bonus extra 2 weeks!! Haha.

banana- sooooo jealous! We've been watcing all the gymnastics and swimming ( I'm a major fan of both lol ) and I'm loving it! I do have to say though since I'm from the US I'm totally team USA all the way :-)

annaki- yay for symptoms! I hope your test is a positive one! I knew about the whole adding two weeks thing on.... but I only just figured that out about a month ago lol.

Sooz- can't wait to hear about your doctors apt. Hopefully all goes well!

Hello ladies!

GP was lovely. She thinks all my symptoms are linked to coming off the pill. She genuinely thinks I don't have PCOS and reassured me it's early days even for a girl that does have regular cycles. She's advised BD every 48hrs from mid-cycle onwards and trying opks around then.
Did that today and opk is positive (line the same as control line)! I'm worried that I've missed ov though as we didn't bd last night as I was bleeding from my smear! do you guys think we've missed our chance?

I can reassure you all that the average girl takes 6months to get a BFP do we're all v early. It's do difficult to be patient though I know!!

Annaki- big but you are not out until AF actually gets you so still keeping fingers crossed for you.

Sooz - That is great news, I'm glad the gp has managed to help you look at things and hopefully stop you worrying so much. I am all for the 48 hr approach.

That's great about the positive you haven't missed your chance at all! I would today at some point if yu can and again tomorrow, retest OPK tomorrow too as well and if you can fit in another session or two over the weekend sure it wouldn't hurt!
