    Hiya!

    Me and DH have been waiting since July until Feb to start trying for our first. AF came today so my first cycle TTC #1 has begun! I am so excited but I know that it's all I will be able to think about.

    I've been with DH for 7 years and we got married in July :cloud9:

    I would love a buddy to talk to throughout my TTC journey!! :happydance:

    :dust: to all!

    Hi Harri, I'd love to be your buddy. I'm on my 3rd cycle ttc #1.

    My OH and I have been together 9 years. I have really irregular cycles and was diagnosed with pcos last year. After that we decided now was the time.

    It feels that I've been ttc for ages! My last cycle was 47 days and I'm currently on cd3.

    I know what you mean about the baby brain. I was soo excited and nervous when we decided to try.

    Hopefully you'll get your BFP this cycle! :happydance:

    Hey Carhar!!

    woohoo a buddy! How've you found your first 3 cycles TTC? Has it been stressful? That's what I am least looking forward to, I want it to be a fun process :)

    Are you charting? I started last week and so far so good, it's predicted my AF spot on!

    FX'd you'll get your BFP this cycle too! Sending lots of :dust: your way! xx

    I've been trying to keep it fun but it's far too easier to become obsessed!

    I'm a complete poas addict! I test from 6 dpo then every other day.

    I've been using the fertility friends iPhone app and temping from cd10. I've learnt loads about my cycle!

    I'm so impatient. I don't know how you managed to wait to try!

    Are you taking any supplements?

    I'm taking epo, folic acid, multi vits, star flower and agnus castus to shorten my cycle.

    I use that iPhone app too - DH thinks in bonkers on my phone at 6:30am lol!
    I know it's been so tough but as I moved jobs it I would get double maternity pay by waiting until now!

    I'm not taking anything but I'm nipping to the chemist tomorrow for folic acid and multivits.
    Now to convince DH to take them lol...

    In August we thought sod it and didn't take precautions and I was testing from 7dpo so I know I'm going to be even worse this time!

    :-D at least I have bnb to keep me sane!

    Hello!

    I've started taking multivits and folic acid this morning and managed to persuade DH to take them too :-D woo!

    AF is still not here though, I had spotting yesterday and I have cramps but I've not started yet which means I'm not on CD1 yet! :-( hopefully it will arrive today so I can hurry up and begin my first cycle!

    Hope you're well! Xxx

    Yay, I'm sooo excited about having a buddy.

    OH takes vit c and zinc, he's pretty good at taking them.

    I'm so pleased you're a poasa too. I'm even addicted to the test gallery as I love positive tests. I thought I had a chemical the first month as I had 3 very very faint hpts but in reality they were prob just evaps.

    I hope your af gets a move on! It's there when you don't want it and doesn't turn up when you need it... It must have been invented by a man.

    I'm praying for short cycle this month, fx.

    Lol I love positive tests too, I've never seen one in the flesh haha I can't wait to see one :-D
    Damn evaps - luckily I've never had one and I'll be making sure I never get a blue dye test!

    When do you think you'll ovulate this cycle?
    Haha it was deffo invented by a man! Haha that's what I'll tell DH next time I have pmt and he moans :)

    I think I will get af before the day is over, I have tummy ache and I'm moody!

    Well, my first cycle was 160 days!!!! Agnus castus shortens it but it's only my second full cycle on it so not sure when I'll o. Last month I had a LH surge around cd24, but didn't actually o til cd34-35. Do you know when you o?

    I've got tons of cheap Internet tests as well as cb opks and frers, for when I get a positive test. I am determined this month.

    Last month we bd around the wrong time because of the false positive opk. We've also got concieve plus and a saliva ovulation microscope this month. My OH thinks I'm mad. Well you have to try everything!

    I've heard the blue dyes are really bad for false positives. I've avoided those.

    I have a good feeling for us and think Feb is the bfp month!

    I usually ovulate around the 14 day mark so looks like I've got a couple of weeks to go!
    I have 10 ic tests but that's it! You're a pro! Lol
    What the hell is a saliva ovulation microscope? Whatever it is you really deserve a bfp :-D
    Yes think positive and stay relaxed and we will get our bfps :-D xxx

    Not a pro, just desperate. I really am a sad case!

    You put saliva on the end of the lipstick sized microscope and you're meant to see 'ferning' when you're ovulating. I can't see anything as the light is green.

    Apparently you can use it to see if your OH's swimmers are working but we've not tried that.

    I really am a fertility expert in wasting money. I just got 50, yes 50 ic hpts (I already had about 20)! Not sure what I'll do if I get pregnant in the next 5 years. Perhaps I could send one in the post to friends and family glued to a I'm pregnant card??? That was a joke. God, I really hope that no one has actually done that!

    Have you told anyone you're trying?

    I watched the start of the first episode of one born every min and went off the idea. I prefer to believe child birth is dignified and painless.

    Ooo I've never heard of that, I might invest!!!
    HAHAA!!!!! I hope to god nobody has ever done that!!! How much did they set you back? I think you're a bad influence, I feel the urge to buy more tests!
    I've told my best friend but that's it, have you told anyone?

    I'm trying to lose weight in the hope that it might be the hast chance I get for 9 months but I have other things on my mind haha! I've put half a stone on since my wedding and I can't shift it! Do you think it affects conception?

    I think they cost about £8ish from Amazon. A lot cheaper than 50 frers.

    I've only told my sister, but others suspect as they're aware I saw a fertility specialist about my irregular periods. No one has actually asked me though. I know my mum asked my sister if she thought we were trying. Unfortunately my mum is no good at keeping secrets!

    The fertility specialist was only interested in whether I was in the healthy bmi for my height. They say a heathy weight helps, but I'm sure half a stone won't make a lot of difference.

    I want to lose a stone, but I've really been obsessed with chocolate this week. X

    I can't get enough of chocolate at the moment either!
    My AF is still a no show!! I'm 2 days late which is so irritating because for the past 3 months I've been like clockwork 29 day cycles :-( now when I want to start TTC it's started messing me around!
    I know it's got to be on it's way because I had a huge temp dip on CD28. I wish it would hurry up!!

    How are you today? Think I'm going to cheer myself up and buy some tests for the end of feb :)

    Yay you really are (almost) as bad as me. I think I only have a measly 30 opks the ic ones and 7 cb digi.

    I have a temp dip 2 days before my af, but is there anyway you could be pg already if you have a regular cycle?

    My af on the other hand is still here cd5, last month it was 8 days, but I'm hoping it's on the outs as it is alot lighter. I need a good head start on you with my cycle length.

    Oh for a 28 day cycle!

    Well you're already 5 days ahead of me so hopefully our bfps will come at the same time lol :-D trying to be positive!
    Can't be pregnant - big temp dip, We didn't bd at the right time, and dh used withdrawal method (sorry tmi), I also have period pains oh and I've done a million tests despite all these signs haha!!

    Hopefully I will come on this eve! I really wanted to ov on our 7 yr anniversary which is 12th feb, thought it would be romantic! Lol.

    Oo my opks have been dispatched already :) xxx

    I'm the same did about 10 test despite a very slim chance of a bfp as a result of the false pos opk.

    In that case I really hope she arrives soon as you seem so organised. My first cycle ttc I really had no clue about my cycles.

    That would be amazing to have an anniversary baby. So romantic.

    Af dust!!!! Funnily enough they don't have that icon. Perhaps I should say bring on your :witch: and then tons of :dust: for 12 Feb.

    With my cycle there's a good chance my next ovulation will be on our 9 year anniversary (22 March)!

    Haha I hope it's the last time AF shows up for a long time, I should see this as a novelty, next time I'll be praying for her to stay away!
    Wow 9 years! Well done, that's pretty awesome!
    Are you planning on doing anything nice?
    I think I might dye my hair from blonde to red to take my mind off TTC, do you think that's a bit drastic? Lol

    FX'd you get a nice short cycle this month and then you could have an anniversary present lol

    Xxx :dust: xxx
