Hello,

Have just introduced myself on the November thread, but to cut a long story short, DH & I started TTC this month.  Bit of a funny / silly start, being a bit too eager to poas - full story in November thread!

At the moment though, AF day 1, so no news for me right now!  Minnie - could you please add me to the list?

Good luck to all! tthumbs.gif

Welcome happy life you are now on the list come in talk as much as you like. I'm Nadia or you can just call me minnie. I am the youngest here at 21 been ttc since 19 (a few months off 20) I have had 4 losses  and love to chat original.gif

Jessie- I am about to O or already have I had some stabby pain all day yesterday this month I'm just letting my body do what it wants and going more for the not trying not preventing and will do the same next month as work is going to be hectic for a few weeks to a month

#12 Jessie_T

Posted 29 November 2012 - 08:11 AM

My body better not be playing a joke on me!!!!! A lady from work came into my office with her coffee and then she strred it, which made the smell stronger. I ended up having to run to the toilet and I threw up. Jeez, all the signs are there....... but the poas shows a BFN although I didnt test yesterday or today.......

#13 PrincessPeach

Posted 29 November 2012 - 09:08 AM

Jessie - i'm not due for testing for another 2 weeks yet. AF showed up the morning I was going to test last time, so there was a definative answer there for me!

Happylife - welcome! I haven't read the November thread yet - so will have to do that!

AFM - Not too much, I've got mild cramps today & plenty of EWCM, so i'm hoping that I might have some luck this month, so it will make for a really nice Christmas announcement, then again, if it doesn't that means i can eat loads of yummy christmas food, so it's a plus both ways!

For those in the southern states - hope you guys stay cool in the heatwave that is comming.

Ohh Jessie I was feeling the same the last couple of days as of today I think it's over and I know it's not over til af arrived but I'm not feeling it. I'm now feeling like maybe I didn't O I'm looking forward to what the dr says next week.

Hi ladies, Im back on EB original.gif Minnie can you add me under AF

Welcome to the newbies waves.gif

jessietroy Definitely sounds promising. How many DPO? When are you testing again? ph34r.gif

Minnie You know what they say - stop trying and it will happen (haha I hate that saying and I also hate "just relax")

HappyLife I dont follow the MY month thread cos it moves too quickly. But I think we've all been a bit too keen to POAS at some point. I even took my HPT apart last night to get a better view if there was a line. Stupid me, it was definitely BFN.gif

Mouise What will clomid help with? Are you trying clomid for a couple of months and then IUI in Jan if it doesnt work? I'm a bit clueless with AC wacko.gif

bek_p That is one long cycle! ohmy.gif I think it looks like you Oed but the temps are a bit eratic.  Hopefully the dr has some answers.  Have you done any progesterone tests to confirm O is happening?  

PrincessPeach Sounds like O.  Get busy! llove.gif

Just a quick update on me: I had a MC earlier this month and Ive been avoiding EB since then. But now AF is here, I feel like I can start TTC afresh. The good news is my cycle was 28 days! This is much shorter than the 35-45 days it was before. Im hoping it stays like this!
Ive started seeing a natruopath who is lovely and has given me lots of tablets and a herbal medicine. I tried acupuncture and TCM for a while but that lady didnt even listen to my symptoms (very frustrating!) I hoping the natruopath helps (at the very least it makes me feel like Im taking control of TTC).

Is it hot where you live? Beach time this weekend cool.gif

Sorry I'm not going to read the previous thread so Ill just catch up on everything as we go.

Oh Phipps, sorry about your miscarriage. Good that your cycle is back on track original.gif I think it's a good idea to see a naturopath and good thing this one actually listens to you original.gif

I am on day 30. At the very latest 11 dpo...... Going to Poas tonight.... It sounds promising, but i don't want to get my hopes up......

pippa26 - sorry to hear about that. I've heard good things about naturopaths & TTC.

Posted 29 November 2012 - 12:54 PM

Ok, I thought AF was coming but I've just been spotting this morning and now its stopped. Usually cramps would have started by now but they havent.  This is what happened last month when I got a BFP but it didnt stick for very long.  So even if this is implantation bleeding again, Im not expecting a BFP.

Anyway, Im really just rambling cos Im bored at work.

Afternoon everyone!  It's my birthday day and I am off to Roar n Snore at the zoo tonight so very, very excited about that and this afternoon is just dragging....

jessie - sounds promising.  looking forward to hearing the results on POAS...

pippa - so sorry to hear that.  also sounds promising this month for you, so FX

Everyone in Melbourne - hope you're not suffering in the heat too much.  40 is definitely too hot but at least it's dry heat there right?  Been so humid in Sydney this week.

I'm testing on 6 December but not really holding much hope - only cycle 17 or 18 now so used to BFN's!
