CertainTurton - What research study are you doing? Sounds interesting!

Its a study here in Cambridge where I live looking at your heart during implantation and pregnancy - apparently the valves thicken!? so basically i have to monitor my ovulation and keep the tests then when i get smiley i have to wait 8 days and then start using a prg test everyday until either 3 BFPs or AF. Once im preg I then get a scan at 6 and 8 weeks as well as the usual ones. They also check your heart function and take bloods. Its great coz you get all the tests for free and extra scans. It also gives a good excuse to test, although i have to admit seeing 'not pregnant' so much is a bit hard sometimes! This is my 3rd month doing the study - maybe 3rd time lucky!?!

Sounds great! How did you find out about that? I don't live too far from you (Oxfordshire) - would be nice to find something like that round here. Lets hope it is 3rd time lucky!!

When I was pregnant with DS they asked me to complete this research thing - I thought yep, sounds good, a few extra scans will be nice.... but no, all they wanted to do was take extra lots of blood!!

ptntly wtg - Hope you feel better soon!! Silly question maybe, but what is preseed?? x

It is great, I'm enjoying it. I found out at the hospital, because I'm a researcher myself (although into drug addiction). They are still looking if you are willing to travel. Hmm yes i have to give blood but not much - at least this has benefits too!

Preseed is a lube which is designed to help fertility ( http://www.preseed.co.uk/ )Its great stuff and has got great reviews on here for helping people to conceive after lots of time. It helps the sperm swim to the egg and also helps with, umm, dryness....

Well I used the preseed and SMEP this cycle so I am really hoping I get lucky this time. I'm only 4dpo and the wait is killing me already aaagh!

I've given up with the OPKs for this cycle as there's something super messed up, plus we've not been able to DTD when needed due to OH being v tired and now having a visitor in the house!

Hopefully next cycle.

Hello Ladies!

How is everyone? Anything new / exciting to report?!

I'm on 4dpo (I think), but am very confused. Yesterday I had ewcm, surely I shouldnt have had that if I ov'd when I thought I did? I did a digital OPK on Friday and there was definitely no smiley face!! I'm also getting a dull ache in my lower abdomen - which I thought must be ov pains, but not according to my OPK! Arghhhhh!

I'm just resigning myself to madness for the remainder of the TWW.
