    6 weeks on I finally got my first AF after the MC. Ironically had we waited until we had originally planned to stop taking the pill my period would have come Sunday ...I take this as a sign!!

    I have ordered 30 opks so I can really track what's happening n my husband n I have our 'official' honeymoon (it's taken us 19months to save for it!) on Friday 8th April to Orlando...so I *should* ovulate while we r away...a honeymoon baby is what I'm aiming for!

    If it doesn't happen, so be it, but am trying to be positive! Anyone want to join me in this attempt at a happier outlook? (bad days and rants always welcome too!!)

    I'll tentatively join you :) and may lurk to start with as I'm still waiting for first AF but 4 weeks from ERPC on Friday and think I might be feeling a bit pre-menstrul!! Fingers crossed as we are going to TTC again once it appears, although that feels very scary at times. But do need to be positive and look forward.

    How lovely to have your honeymoon coming up - albeit belated. Fingers crossed for that honeymoon baby.

    Nope never used opks! Have never looked at that side of things and would need my hand holding if I did decide to as completely clueless!! But not planning on looking into it yet, want to try and be laid back (yeah right!) when TTC again and up to the MMC I was lucky enough to be fairly regular so hoping I still will be.

    I was the same really regular with a 28 day cycle. Dont want to make:sex: a total baby making mission and think it would if i started using opks. Think i would become completely obsessed and dont want to take the fun out of it:wacko: The only thing im going to do is keep a calander.

    Hey ladies lovely to have u with me!! Fingers xd for ur AF soon!

    I'm going to use opks this month for first time, but mainly coz I go out of my mind trying to figure out what's happening when, if I use them for a whole month I figure I MIGHT get a better idea n then just need to use them for a couple of days each month to check we've got the right days lol

    Look forward to chatting more over the coming weeks! Xxx

    Hi girls!

    Can i pop in?!

    My first AF started 26/3, and is finished now (hmmm 3/4 days i think is normal - didnt have one in years from using the implanon, then very light AFs until i concieved).

    Madison was born 7/2, and this is first AF since..

    Didnt use OPK or anything last time, but desperately trying so think i should?

    Do you think it makes a difference using them or just DTD all the time?! xx

    hi ladies, can I join in.

    Im desperately clinging to my PMA, although has slipped a couple of times over the last few.

    I'm halfway through my first cycle, my AF showed up 5wks 5days after ERPC, and lasted 8 days!! a record for me since going on to BCP. This mths will be my 15th TTC, one lil Angel and several chemicals, that's taught me not to test early ever again.

    Anyway was getting a little low about no temp rise, no +OPK (not new for me) zip, but then today I have had an epiphany, I used to have a regular 31 days cycle and always went off Ov date of CD17/18 Ovulation cos that's what all the calculators said, never once did it occur to me to count back 12/14 days :dohh::dohh:

    So iv counted and as long as I have a regular LP (I should cos got my :bfp: last time 2 days before AF was due) I should OV CD 20/22, so off to BD like :bunny::bunny::bunny::bunny::bunny::bunny: for the next few days, why didn't i do that ages ago :dohh::dohh::dohh: stupid me :haha:

    Hi girls :)

    Baby Boyle- I also go for the BD like crazy approach but on our first month when I didn't get preg and this month once I got AF n counted back although we'd bd'd around the date we hadn't done it ON the likely day. The month in the middle where I got pg we def bd'd on the two days I got cramps ... Hence trying opks nxt month!

    So sorry for all your losses

    That's awesome Fizzio!!! Have everything crossed that April will be our month! Let us know how it all goes!

    I'm impatient as ever, I just hate the waiting...waiting to AF, waiting for Ov, the TWW....such a pain! N it somehow feels worse after an MC...that horrid "but I WAS pregnant" feeling lurking just around the corner ready to pounce!

    Am so pleased it's arrived AND pretty on time for u :) woo!
