    Kitty I just tried that website. It says I’m a 28FF UK which translates to a 28H US. From my experience a 28 would be too tight for me and a 30 would be a bit snug, plus they’re hard to find in bigger cup sizes. I normally wear a 32 very comfortably. If I translated that to a 30, it would be a 30DDDD/G, or if I go with the band size I’m used to, 32DDD. The biggest in 32 they carry at Aerie (where I usually get my bras) is 32DDD so when I’m pregnant I’m gonna have to look elsewhere :haha:

    Update: I have ordered a single bra in 32DDD to try out, and if it fits I’ll order more. Thank you for the suggestion kitty, I never would have thought about my bra being too small cuz I’m not spilling out of it so I assumed it fit.

    Hope it fits/helps, honestly not many people realise they are in the wrong sized bra. I would say you were a 28-30 from the pictures I’ve seen of you but if you know they are uncomfortable then go with what works for you!

    when you try on your bra remember to use the loosest hook to try it on, and ‘scoop and swoop’ all your breast tissue. Adjusting the straps can make a big difference.


    When you can go try bras on again I recommend trying a 28-30 but put it on upside down or back to front because sometimes a lot of people think the smaller bands are too tight however it’s actually the cup size is too small which makes the band feel too tight, the gore (bit inbetween the cups) should sit flat against the skin, the shoulder straps should be able to fit two fingers on top of each other but not be able to lift far from the skin, the band should be level all the way around (Not riding up the back) and you should be able to fit two fingers underneath the band and you shouldn’t be able to pull it more than an inch or so from your back.

    I’m sorry if you know all this I just didn’t for a long time and it’s made a big difference to the comfort of my bras and the look aswell!

    Kitty unfortunately around here it’s impossible to find 28 or 30 in physical stores. They start at 32 and I can only find large cup sizes in 32 in store at Victoria’s Secret, I think they go up to DDD in 32. If you have any recommendations for online stores that have them though, that would be awesome!

    Crap ... I’ve got a FRER I’m petrified to dip it... I just felt off, crying loads and down last week, had a breakout in my skin which isn’t like me and boobs felt full... so managed to squeeze out a tiny dribble of super diluted pee.. obviously expecting a BFN... I can’t breathe

    I’ve just inverted it to double check if it had colour which it does. I think hold it and do the frer ASAP.

    I’ve got everything crossed it’s a shitty test :hugs:

    Hi all,I’m new to posting and had something weird happen today. We’re not TTC but I think some of my boyfriends love juice, sorry I’m not sure the better way to put it , got in me on O day. FF puts my O at cycle day 16 which was May 30 so I’m about 7 dpo. So back to the weird thing, I was walking through Walmart earlier this evening and had a weird feeling in my abdomen. It was like my whole belly swole up with air but after about 5-10 seconds it stopes. I’ve never experienced it that sensation. I know my chances are slip because we pull out and I’m 38 but it still is on my mind. Anyone else have that kind of sensation ever?

    Thank you so much lovelies x

    I actually tried for Ella and it took almost a year.

    With this new man I’m seeing I made sure I did the sensible thing which scared me (starting the pill.) I was so worried about the hormones and stuff and it has been hard mentally, cry a lot on it etc. Yet I’ve managed to get pregnant TWICE in 6 months?!! I swear it’s made me more fertile!! X

    this morning FMU vs this afternoons cheapy.

    afternoon always seems to be stronger for me..

    Pretty, woot on the condo being totes sold! I think you said possible tww? Blanking but fxed as well for you as well. Kudos on potty training!

    I’m not sure what else I missed

    afm I’m stressed so getting therapy starting next week. Neck stills hurts. Aiden is still cute. Work ends next week thank goodness. Period is about two weeks late and been cramping and pains since. Weird goopy brown discharge yesterday. Didn’t look like blood though so not amused. Kaiser won’t do anything until I’m like 3 months late cuz they know no chance of pregnancy and pcos. So woot. Hoping my period starts now that I’ve officially b*ed about it ETA def on her way

    shae - Can't say that I've experienced pain like that, but I hope a new bra helps. :)

    kitty - *takes notes about how to get the perfect fit* lol

    bmills - Hey and welcome. I can't say that I've ever felt something like that before. Or if I have, I just kinda brushed it off and never gave it a 2nd thought. I know when you're in that TWW you're watching out for every feeling and anything that's off. It's probably too early to feel anything though.
    All it takes is one sperm and one egg. Age is irrelevant. My mom had me at 37 and my sister at 42. It's just a matter of fertility. All you can really do now is wait a few more days, keep your fingers crossed, and then take a FRER.

    keeps - I'm sorry that the outcome wasn't what you wanted. Do you have a bit of a game plan going forward?

    Dobby - I hope the therapy helps, but the pain and the discharge sucks. :/ Are you gonna look it up on with Dr.Google?
    And ya, maybe TWW? I haven't had a period since I got pg. I know you can ovulate before you get your first pp period, but all the test strips I have (O and pg) are a couple months expired. So, even if I did O, I dunno if an expired test would pick it up. That being said...

    Ok, ladies, here's my timeline...

    May 19 - DTD sans condom, all pg tests BFN
    Jun 5 - DTD sans condom
    Jun 7 - Take (2 months) expired O test, see below



    Barely positive? Not quite positive? Don't pay it any mind cuz it's expired?

    Either way, I guess I'm in another TWW. I ordered another box of ICs that should arrive tomorrow. Also, after we were done on the 5th, SO asks what the odds are of me getting pg again and I'm just like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. lol

    Right ladies, I know this won’t be to everyone’s taste but I really want to decorate our house, I’m going to start with our little bathroom (cheapest to decorate)

    do you think this paint goes okay with these tiles? I love the tiles and want to keep them, but also want to go bold with the colour!

    I'm all for bold colours, but I'm not sure about that shade of green with those tiles. Maybe something a wee bit lighter and with a little more blue?
