It was so nice to log in and find a post in this some what quiet thread... i havenīt been around much either, but sure miss reading you!
I obvuously donīt have much of an idea about cycles but iīve heard that bc pills can help regularize cycles to 28 days, I know the whole point is ttc but who knows? have you talked to your doctor yet Kath?? Iīm sure your baby is soon to be on his way!!! hang in there hun!
Talk about moodswings Universa! lol iīve been so emotional! crazier than ever, cried over a coke commercial, cried over a silly song on the radio that I donīt even like, cried because my dogs are just too cute hahaha.
Girls it will happen... i think itīs a miracle that happened for me this past cycle, still canīt believe it!! and honestly I wouldnīt have nailed O day if it wasnīt for the opks... I was using cheapies since cd 8 and as soon as i got a faint line did the clearblue and bam! there it was, and I was like "honey, right now!!" lol and just went for it, I also got the pre seed to give it an extra help.
Kath, i'm no expert but maybe the virus has messed with your cycle this month and caused an anovulatory cycle - it does look a bit like others I've seen on ff that have been anovulatory. If the tests are neg then I guess your right in saying your not preg
I so hope you get to the end of this cycle so you can get on with trying. I can't remember whether you had just came of bc? You will get pregnant, I am sure of it and you know what, when you do it will be the most amazing feeling ever and you'll carry that bub with all your love
Hey Love, so glad your doing good! Its so nice to hear from you.
Your mood wings comment made me smile, bless you - so much to look forward to! Hehe Make sure you keep us up to date with your pregnancy, I am so so happy for you
I think i'm now in tww, I had 2 + opks cd 17&18, and cd 20 &21 (yesterday & today) my temps have risen so looks like I o'd maybe 19? I dunno, its tooooo confusing! But I think I covered all bases with bd, hopefully.
Hey Hun, I had a strop this morning cos I couldn't find my thermometer under my pillow, then I'd stirred so much there was no point!! I've had enough now, I'm stopping temping and just leaving nature take its course, I'm on cd50+ now and I'm just gonna wait it out. I'm having a break now. I'm so sad cos I want a baby so much, my niece is now over 2yrs, and I would've liked there to be a 2yr gap between them, but it's not up to me I'm well and truly fed up, so I'm gonna chill out, not pay any attention to fertility or anything. Suppose I'll see how it goes!!
Ur chart looks awesome Hun :-) fingers crossed!! When are u testing? Xx
Aww hunni, bigs hugs to you
I think your very right in having a break, de-stress and chill and the break will do you the world of good. They always say that its when you stop trying that it will happen. Bet your niece is a little cutie, enjoy her and get lots of practise in
How is your partner feeling about the whole thing? My dh just rolls his eyes at me lol
I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much with my chart, i'm due to come on a week tomorrow so i'll see if I can hold out that long If my temps stay up I probably wont be able to coz I'll get over excited lol
I just hate to think that i'll see only one line. Its waaay to depressing
Well, I caved this morning and tested, bfn which I knew. My temps have dropped way down and af feels like she's on her way
I know I'm not out yet but lost all hope now for this cycle. Sooo if and when she shows and cycle 5 starts I'm chilling! We go on hol for 2 weeks in June so there's no way I'm faffing around with temping etc. I just wanna enjoy myself and hopefully should be plenty of bding in! I'm not gonna get down like last month!
How are things with everyone? Hope your all doing ok xx
Hey Hun, just logged in to ff to see that I'm on Cd56 now. God I can't believe I'm having another long cycle. It's ridiculous. Sorry to see your temps dropping, but you never know if they'll go back up!!! Just keep those fingers crossed until af/bfp :-)
Good news about your holiday tho!!! Where are you going to?? I'm going to Rhode Island in America in 2 weeks time wooohoo!! Visiting my brother out there. I'm out there for 2 weeks, and going with my mum. So me and my fiancé are gonna miss each other I always thought oh wouldnt it be ironic if I O'd while over there lol! I wouldn't be so mean to myself lol. I'm thinking I'll be lucky/unlucky enough to get af while out there!!
Me and my fiancé have booked a week off work in October tho, so depending on the savings, we may go somewhere then :-) we're currently saving for a mortgage, so we trying to balance life as it happens now, and saving for our future :-/
Hey hun, cd56, wow that must be soooo frustrating!
2 week's in America, lucky you. 2 weeks without your fiance will be hard i'm sure, sounds like a really good break for you though and hopefully may get something moving for you if your relaxing a bit, although I guess the thought of o'ing while your away from df must be on your mind. I reckon it will be very positive for your tho, no pun intended! Aaand I think that if you get af while out there, although unlucky in a lot of ways, i'm sure you'll be happy in another kind of way Hope that makes sense?
We're going to Cyprus for 2 weeks, go in 2 weeks Tuesday. Can't wait! I'm actually looking forward to just not worrying about the ttc - I mean, obviously it will be in my mind but I won't be obsessing over it! And according to FF my o time 'should' be when we're there
Thanks for the positivity regarding the temp drop. I know i'm not out yet and still have a few days to go until af is due on Tuesday. Guess i'll see what happens. I 'think' I got an evap on the test I did this morning - I left it after studying it for any sign of a line, then looked at it again later under a different light and could see a line! But it was way past time. I'm def not getting excited!
Going away with DF in october sounds like a brilliant idea - hey, you could be pregnant by then, fx We are also going away in October, only in a caravan at Skeggy for 4 nights but its time away to ourselves all the same.
I know what you mean about getting things in balance.
We brought a 40% share in our house almost 6 yrs ago, hadn't even lived here a yr when DH got made redundant. He was then unemployed for 3 years! Was a huuuge struggle, living of just my wage which at the time was dismal! He then got hugely down and was diagnosed with depression which really didn't help us. Luckily tho, we are in a great position now, both working full time on much better money and both very happy in our jobs. All we need to complete our little family now is a baby
Oooooh 2 weeks in the sun :-) that'll be lush!! And you'll be sooooo chilled out you never know what'll happen!! I'm hoping I'll be preggers before oct too lol. I'd need to get preggers in June for there to be 3yrs between my baby & niece :-/ I never thought there'd be that big a gap :'( shes absolutely amazing, & we are getting lots if practise with her lol, but my heart just aches when I sit there & think wow I actually want one of my own but I'm not on control of it. Lets be honest, there's little that goes on in our lives that we don't have control over - just birth, death & health really :-/ and we can only do as much as we can to ensure or prevent these things. It's horrible to not be in bloody control lol! I've always said tho that I'd like to be pregnant at Halloween & Christmas so I can paint my bump as a pumpkin then a pudding lol :-D so whooooo knows!!
I'm glad everything's sorted for you house/job wise - well done for getting through 3years on one wage!! We were both made redundant at the start of the year and now we're in awesome jobs - both on more money :-) which is great, & I finish paying my car off in 4mths time so that's even better, so fingers crossed we'll be getting a house by the end of the year :-) it horrible not knowing what's around the corner eh?!
Such lovely weather where I am today, hope its nice where you are too xx
