    Hi girls wondered if anyone wanted to join me this cycle. Feeling a bit lonely with all this ttc stuff. I'm on cd 4 , just got day 21 test back and dr referring us to fertility specialists now. Hubbies boys being checked out tomorrow ! Just bought flax seed oil and royal jelly , but confusing myself like crazy in terms of good idea or not. So I guess thats me right now. Would love to share the ups and downs bye for now:flower:

    Well I'm slightly further along on my cycle but I'm happy to be your buddy and help you through this cycle :hugs:

    Royal Jelly and Flaxseed oil are good for the body in so many ways so even if all the information saying their good for TTC turns out to be wrong at least they won't cause any harm.

    I started Royal Jelly this month and I am unsure if it moved my ovulation day forward some ladies think it has moved their ovulation back so if you are temping and using OPKs useful to remember if may affect you. But then again it may have no effect on you as each of us is different :)

    I really hope you get your BFP soon :dust: :hugs: :dust:

    Hi macwooly :flower: thanks so much wasn't sure where to fit in so thought I'd give this a go . My hubbies brill but nothing like girls to help each other along. Ive decided to give temping a go , opk and saliva scope. I know thats a lot but , I'm in a hot country and often don't sleep well , opks are three times the price for 5 !! And that leaves my scope which I'm still getting used too. Had some good news my day 21 came back 39 which is good apparently . Dr going to refer as we've been at it for 8 months and I'm 36 . Going to be force feeding hubby oj soon , and I'm drinking grapefruit juice by the gallon , now that vie found it. So that's my plan. The boys are being viewed tomorrow :laugh2: feeling like I'm finally taking control . How are you getting on ? See you soon :winkwink:

    Glad you feel like your taking charge :thumbup:

    I use a CBFM and temping. I have a saliva scope which I'm getting used to ready for my next cycle if this one is unsuccessful.

    I drink grapefruit juice till ovulation is confirmed then switch to pineapple juice as some say pineapple juice can help with implantation. Not sure if it is true or not but I love it and it helps keep me hydrated so it can't hurt :)

    Hope your DH's results come back ok - FXed

    Good luck to all of you as well! I am trying very hard this cycle to just go with whatever happens. No temping, maybe an OPK when it's closer to suspected OV time. I take a flax/EPO combo, so we'll see if that does anything, lol.

    I'm scouring the net to see if I can find a store that ships the UK version of the Clearblue digi to the States, lol. I know, obsessive. :hugs:

    Not obsessive I've been scouring to see if I can find someone who will ship ov watches to the UK as I'm not sure how well I can trust my temps as I am having a lot of disturbed sleep - every night for 8 nights now :nope:

    Maybe we should get your Clearblue digi shipped to me and I forward to you and I get an ov watch shipped to you and you forward to me :D

    Hi Ladies-

    Ummm, I need some help; this is CD7 for me and I just got a positive OPK- usually I don't OV until CD12-13 of a 27 day cycle. The only thing I can figure is that my new supplement, which is an EPO/flax combo, has brought my OV day earlier? :wacko:

    I am very confused...:nope:

    Goodness that is earlier! I don't use OPKs so not sure what to say.

    A number of ladies are wondering if EPO has changed their ovulation day but they mainly think it has delayed it.

    I have used EPO for many months before coming off BC so not sure how it affects cycles. I felt my ovulation was early but I started using Royal Jelly this cycle and wonder if that caused me issues.

    Have you repeated the test in case it was that particular stick?

    Sorry I can't be more help :hugs:

    You ladies are the best help! I will retake the test this evening, but I felt off yesterday & that's why I tried it earlier. DH said if it wasn't positive, then it was very close. I doubled my b6, so maybe that changed it? I just don't know, lol.

    How are you? I think I read somewhere you are testing on Sunday?:hugs:

    Hope a test later gives you a clearer idea of what's happening but if in doubt grab you DH and get busy :dust:

    I am testing Sunday :) Not sure how positive I feel but we gave it out best so all I can do is pray :)

    My temp took a nose dive this morning - too big for implantation I think so possibly an AF dip but a little earlier than I would have expected or hoped. But temping has confirmed I did ovulate this cycle so if nothing else we know that's ok :happydance:

    And the positive I will take if it is a BFN is that next cycle my test day will be around DH's birthday :)

    Well, I just did an digi and another regular OPK; both were negative, but I did have two positive this morning. So, I either had a short surge or two bad tests. I will say, my wee this afternoon was only a half hour in the making, lol! I am so impatient.

    Were the morning tests from the same batch do you know? If possible then I suppose in theory 2 could be wrong.

    Did you grab DH in case they were right?

    The first two did come out of the same box; DH will be having a good night tonight, lol. :happydance: All I can do is test again when I thought I was going to OV and see what I get. I'm telling ya, some days I am just over the whole thing, lol. Maybe I should just get another dog. :wacko:

    Well I went from 1 to 5 dogs last year whilst having a break from TTC :wacko: We're back to 4 as our old boy Merlin passed away in October :(

    DH said lets TTC again as getting more dogs wasn't satisfying my need for a LO :)

    When I have a bad day I just have to tell myself all this stress will be forgotten the moment I get to hold my LO in my arms :thumbup:

    Then because I am such a nutter I'll probably start TTC all over again :wacko:

    Unless I get the triplets Indigo predicts :)

    I am down to two furbabies right now; my 15 yo dog had to be put to sleep in November. Tutti had Cushing's disease, so she was never a really healthy dog, but I loved her to pieces! Not a day goes by that I don't miss that dog!
