Afternoon Girls,

MrsP - That seems like an awfully long time to wait. I have PCOS (just went to my doctor and said I think I have it 3 months ago after 4 months of trying and she did tests for that and my thyroid and loads of other stuff and the tests confirmed I do have PCOS) so it is slightly different but I have been referred to the hospital this week to see a specialist and I have only been trying for 7 months. A friend of mine was referred to the hospital after a year of trying because the blood tests showed there was nothing wrong, I would definitely be pushing for something earlier. I really hope you get your BFP before then and you don't even need to worry about it though.

Gettingbroody - Sorry to hear you think AF has arrived, hopefully June will be your month.

Rosered - I love listening to the rain when i'm snuggled up in bed. Sorry to hear that you are coming off meds I hope it is getting easier. Good on you for doing it though.

Flyffy73 - Welcome, I am doing acupuncture as well not sure if it does much but it makes me feel proactive. I do really enjoy it and hope that it gets you a result quickly.

Celi84 - Nice to hear that this will all be a distant memory at some point

Sorry if I missed anyone.

Well I had a temp rise this morning so really hoping it was O and not just really warm in my bedroom lol, that would be day 18 for me so the earliest yet.

On another note ladies, I had the results of my scan/bloods back and docs tell me I do not have PCOS, the androgen test they do during bloods (tests PCOS) was "slightly elevated" but the internal scan confirmed no cysts on my ovaries. No thyroid issue either. No idea if I am ovulating because it was only one blood test and to test it, you need to do 1 on CD2 and around CD14/15. Docs have ruled out cysts and cancer (WHOOPEE!) but will not refer me for fertility tests for another 6 months. Which will in reality be a year (I am on cycle 6 of TTC). However, I did tell doc I have been trying for a year after hearing how people have been fobbed off to return in 2 yrs time! It used to be a year but the NHS are scrimping it seems

So no sperm tests or blood tests let alone the more sophisticated ones for quite a while. Doc said to try to relax, have regular sex and let it happen. He said 95% of couple conceive naturally in 2 years...TWO! OMG!

Baby dust to you all!

Yay mk8 that is fantastic news so pleased for you, fx'd this is your month.

I was doing some research last night and it seems one low dose aspirin (75mg) a day is meant to help with ovulation, implantation and helps prevent miscarriage. I have started on it today got 100 at boots for a pound fifteen. Just thought I would mention it in case anyone is looking for something new to try.

That's great news about your test results mk8 Hopefully you won't need all the other tests because you'll be proudly sporting a lovely baby bump by then!

MrsBea I'm very impressed with all your little personal messages! I'm busy trying to absorb all the info about everyone! Takes a while to get to know a new group but it's fun too!

As for me, the arrived today. Not as disappointed as I was other cycles. I think that's because I'm getting to know my temps a bit better and so she didn't catch me off guard, I was quite prepared for her arrival! Onwards to cycle 6 - what new thing to try this month?!!! Aspirin?! Instead cups?! So many choices!!!

Sending lots of to all! Do we have many in the 2ww?

Thanks for your kind messages ladies. I feel v touched.

Mrsbea- not heard that but thanks for letting us know

I am debating what to do in terms of the "game plan". I have tried cough syrup (for EWCM), I have done OPKs (3 months of using them- 2 definite positives on CD15 and 1 kinda positive (same ish colour) on CD14), I have temped for 3 cycles. I have used conceive plus for the second cycle now. Part of me wonders if all this is making me go a bit nuts. I certainly found temping a bit stressful and I felt I was always anxiously watching to see if my temps dropped. And people say stress hinders things so who knows what the right thing to do is?!

Thanks Gettingbroody. I am glad you are in pretty good spirits. Lets all be hopeful for the this cycle eh?!

I am on the TWW. I thought I was CD23 but checked and I am actually on CD20. 8 whole days. Hmmm...

AF is gunning for me today, BFN this morning, I'll almost welcome her this time. It's been a long week. I'm ready for an Advil, some chocolate, and then to fire up my new Clearblue Fertility Monitor. End of June sounds pretty good to me.
