    Welcome to the site hun :) and big congrats on ur beautiful baby boy! This shows u can definitely get pregnant so im sure ur BFP is not far away!! Have u tried OPKs to help determine ovulation? DTD every other day sounds like a good shout- that's what we r doing- so FX for us both!

    I'm so sorry to hear about ur early miscarriage that must be awful to go through :(

    U never know things may happen quickly again for u. Keep us updated.

    Hi Cabby
    thanks so much for the note, its sooo good to know there are others who understand, especially as we arent telling anyone!

    Nope, Ive been off pill for several years now, only actively trying for 3 months- im totally regular, charting and last cycle used OPK. Doing Accupuncture and TCM herbals..this cycle I think I will try Body Talk and/or Reflexology in addition!

    I feel the same about putting it off!! how naive I was, i thought it would happen immediatley? crazy, but you know what aint nothing we can do about the past, agree all we have is the next cycle to try, try and do even better!

    you are so right, we cant loose hope- we wanna be moms so we have to try everything to get there!

    all the best, baby dust to you and everyone!

    Hiya hun :) Yep u most certainly are not alone- we all feel ur pain!! We've started to tell people as I've been getting frustrated/upset with the constant questioning!!

    Sounds like u r doing all the right things hun- I know u will get there! Does accupuncture help then? I'm willing to try anything now!! What's TCM herbals and body talk?

    Ur so right there is no point in regretting the past- thanks hun!

    Here's to the next cycle- come on babies!! xx[/QUOTE]


    Hi Cabby
    sorry for late reply, been busy with work...and TTC-ing!

    TCm is Traditional Chinese Medicine- includes accupuncture, herbal tablets, cupping etc. uses ancient chinese techniques to help balance the body, restore energy and circulation - all of which are of course needed to help conceove and hold a baby!
    i started going because i was weak and tired all the time - the TCM lady told me how can we expect to conceive when our bodies are not strong to hold ourselves and a baby! so i go for acupuncture weekly- and take chinese herbal tablets daily- DEF MAKING A DIFFERENCE - energy levels up, pain down etc. will keep going and she said slowly well reduce over time
    Body Talk - is even more brilliant! also an alternative healing treatment - but more holistic - looks at all causes of strain, emotional, mental, physical and helps bring your body in balance - to let your body heal itself. been doing it for years now, monthly sessions and LOVE IT it has changed my life ;)

    Very wierd cycle...

    OPK negative 4 times! yet according to the calendar (and im regular as rain) it was the time!

    this time my husband and I decided to extend the time we tried, by starting 1-2 days before ovulation (i check for mucus)...sounds good in theory but havent been able to get a positive OPK!

    anyway we going with the flow, feel a bit lost this month without knowing when im ovulating, but lets see!!

    any tips, similar experience?

    Hi hun- my turn to be sorry for the late reply! We are busy trying to sell our house and buy a new one all at the same time- it's hard to coordinate it all! We r moving from Manchester to London so it's not easy!! haha anyway think we r getting there so hopefully stress over!!

    Thanks so much for info hun- that sounds really interesting- where did u find ur TCM lady? Is it expensive to keep going and for the tablets etc? What is cupping? I'll look at the website u suggested - thanks hun!

    Sounds interesting - thanks for sharing xx

    Ummmm I'm not too sure about this hun - when did u start using the OPK? Has this happened before? I've stopped using the OPK's now- shall I start again? I'm not charting or anything as I can't decide if it will make it more stressful for me!! Can i ask u a mucus question? Do u ever get the fertile mucus outside of ur ovulation period? I keep getting mine at random points throughout my cycle- what does this mean?!

    Yeah i guess just go with the flow and see what happens- i never know when i'm ovulating so i just see what happens!

    I hope u figure it out and get ur baby soon :)

    thanks Cabby!
    so it turns out that my OV was a bot late this month, after 4 tests got a +OPK! so away we went! lol we were BD anyway in case, so havinga POs OPK was great news..only troubel is i have no idea how long my cycle is, so will wait till the max 31 days (my longest) before getting hopefull/testing!

    i read somewhere that mucus during the month is very normal - just our bodies way of keeping itself clean. also after intercourse you sometimes get mucus. mucus around fertile times is most interesting of course- and its a good sign youre OV!

    all the best :)

    no probs! best thing to do is to google around your area for TCM clinics - in london there are PLENTY, you should be fine! my lady has a clinic in my high street, thats how i found her
    Cupping is also a form of balancing - its about cleansing from old blood that could be causimng blockages- hence pain/discomfort/other issues. you get diferent types of cutpping- but most involve blood- so not sure how you feel about that! i have tried it once- felt good afterwards, but probably you need to it more often like most things to get the benefits

    all the best, complementraty medicince rocks- once you start you will love it :)

    babyalive88 2 months is way too early to start getting sad!!!! I would say not to worry until at least 6 mos of ttc, even then, it is still early. Most healthy couples do not get pregnant the first month of trying. And most healthy couples take up to 2 years to get pregnant. Hope this helps you feel better that it is not happening right away, and of course two years is a long time, its more like 1 year for a healthy couple MAX! FX for you that you will get pregnant soon!
