Im not sure about hormones Laura, maybe someone on here might know. There is so much behind conceiving, it really is a science in itself!!

CD8 for me today. I've got acupuncture after work today. Im hoping that the combination of that plus recently having the Lap work in my favour otherwise im considering not going weekly as its a pricey habit!

I saw there is a post on here about people skipping March as they dont want to have the baby's birthday clashing with Christmas. I just did a quick calculation online that if im lucky enough to conceive this cycle the baby would be due on Dec 13th. Im not really that phased about the date of the birth... Anyone else? I think before I was TTC for so long I probably wouldve been a little conscious about Dec, but now im not that bothered

That's interesting. My daughter is a feb baby and her birthday is obviously cold and we were unwell this year. But when i wanted her i just wanted a baby and i never cared when she would of been born. I think people born around Christmas often feel they get less or they get everything at once. I think any winter birthday will be cold etc and in the summer theres alot more.

I cant imagine how fed up you are getting. Have you tried taking b6 vitamins? People swear it helped them. I absolutely agree its such a sciemce. Theres so many things. I read ovulation tests detect pregnancy the other week. That was new for me!! Why did nature make it so hard ay :-

I have heard of B6 as potentially helping... which time of the cycle do you take it, or just everyday?

I think i'll try as usual again this month and when I have my follow up Lap appointment in a month i'll ask the consultant what the next steps are. Im guessing it might be another couple of months trying then maybe IVF, dunno....

Hopefully i'll be one of those people that goes all the way up to the IVF stage then magically conceives just before they start. I hope so anyway!

I hope so too.my sil had ivf and paid privately and it worked first time. They had two eggs implanted in the february and had a daughter in the november. I can imagine it is expensive if you pay for it. I personally think its a cruel price. They had alot of money where as some people rely on the free nhs one.

I bet your partner also feels frustrated now too. I know it's absolutely not going to help but ivf or naturally when you become a mum you will have so much to look foreward too. Keep remaining positive and it will all come together.

The dr gave bf a list of vitamins he had to take, all these vitamins are in welman conception. So you get it in a combination pack with pregnancare conception so we have been taking these

I have been wondering about the ivf route, don't think I'm entitled to it as I already have dd? I could be wrong ( hoping I'm wrong!! ) if I wanted to afford ivf I would need to sell our car!! And completely skint ourselves ... and it would 100% be worth it if it worked !! But imagine if it didn't ?

Af due Tuesday , think I'm out, got my usual sore boobs and really hungry!!

I am not sure i think is possibly is for first time mums only which sucks. I think its around 10,000 but i do not know and like you say great if it works!!! Do you find yourself going through stages of not knowing what you want anymore? I get really stressed some months about adding another person into my routine but 95% of the time i am so ready. Some people just fall pregnant so easily and i feel like its not the case for me. I started trying last summer and i did give up for a couple of months so i could relax on holiday and not have ms but here i am its almost april and i still have not fallen.

The b6 vits you take once a day with a meal and i have read they do help. But i am guessing they will be in the multi vitamins. X

Finally my NHS knowledge can come in handy here....
IVF criteria depends on where you live. Its up to the Borough you live in. For example: Greenwich CCG might say you have to weigh a certain weight or be a certain age but that might be completely different in Portsmouth for example. Its best to google your area and find out what criteria applies to you.

I have just found out today that a friend of mine is pregnant. Obviously delighted for her but its another kick in the guts too. She was visiting me from New Zealand at the end of last year and told me she was planning to try when she went home.... and just like that she fell pregnant. She's 35, drinks most days and smokes like a train... And here i am struggling to get pregnant FFS!

Got a very strong OPK today / yesterday so nearly back in the TWW for me.
