Hope everyone is having a good day!
Willsmumsos- I'm glad you were able to push through the pain and give it your best shot this month
you definitely deserve a lovely BFP coming your way after being so commited! Will be hanging out for testing time, have my fingers crossed for you!
Bambiigrrl- Hi and welcome! Looking forward to sharing the journey with you, hopefully it's only a short one
Luvmy3- sorry your dr wasn't overly positive or encouraging
I'm sure it's just because it's only early days. Have you done another FR test? Hope you get your bt results ASAP and they're encouraging for you and can help you feel more relaxed and hopeful
Let us know how you go with your results, everything crossed you've got a smooth 8 months ahead xx
Hi to everyone else, sorry for a short post, just posting from my phone, will pop in later to catch up properly. All is good here, hoping so much I'll be having a 28 day cycle and can expect ovulation tomorrow eeep
testing with opk's 2-3 times a day so hopefully I'll well and truly catch my surge! So just waiting to O now and then it's go time hehe. Hope everyone is going well, looking forward to hopefully seeing some more bfp's this month! Xx

Not sure if i've said hello but Welcome!! Luvmy3
I'll be lurking for an update!
Hi to everyone else...hope your all keeping busy and enjoying the new year!!

I feel shattered
Just got my blood test result from the Dr and its negative.... how can this be?! I have had +ve hpts!
Posted 03 January 2013 - 05:33 PM
hi luvmy3, so sorry to hear about your results.
But still no AF, so there is still hope, thinking of you x
Posted 03 January 2013 - 06:37 PM
luvmy3 - sorry about the negative bt, but without AF hopefully you are still in with a chance.
3'sACharm - congrats on deciding to try for number 3 after your next AF. Not long to wait now, yay.
Posted 03 January 2013 - 07:41 PM
So sorry to hear your BT result was negative!
There is definitely a line on the latest FR test you posted
I don't get it?! Do you think it might've been a chemical pregnancy perhaps? Although if there's still no sign of AF, there could still be a chance things will turn out ok?! Thinking of you, what an emotional rollercoaster
Let us know how you get on, will be thinking of you.3'sACharm
YAY for deciding to TTC next month
Glad you've made a decision, I'm excited for you hehe. willsmumsos
I meant to say before, that's a bit odd your CM has changed lately during your cycle comapred to what it's usually like? I guess our hormones can do funny things and aren't always predictable? Even though my O pain has been clear, and I've been getting positive OPK's, I've noticed my EWCM is pretty much non-existant?! It never used to be like that..just since I stopped the pill this time. So I've actually bought some Pre-Seed lubricant as that's meant to help the swimmers along
lol so we'll give that a go. So that's always an option that's there too lol. Hopefully this month is the lucky one and you won't even need to think about it again mamma_b
I hope you have an answer soon, so frustrating when you can't work out what's happening! Fingers are crossed you still have a sneaky BFP coming your way valhalla007
I hope you had a nice time away at Christmas, and I hope all has been well, have missed your posts in here
Hope everyone is well, so exciting that there's a lot of us TTC/about to start TTC so soon, felt like most of us were just waiting and waiting for ages
As we're trying to DTD as close to ovulation as possible, I keep getting scared we've missed the boat
It's only CD13 today, so hopefully I haven't had a sneaky shorter cycle lol, still holding out hope tomorrow or saturday is the day. I forgot how obsessive TTC can make you
Hopefully O time will be clear and we can give it a good shot this month..then the dreaded 2WW begins, it's been a while since I've had one of those, hope I can stay calm and not drive myself crazy as it could take months and months LOL.
Glad the time is finally here to start trying though
Hope you all have a good friday and weekend,! x
Posted 04 January 2013 - 10:05 AM
Luvmy3 - sorry to hear about negative result. Did you ask doc to investigate further or are you just waiting for AF now to arrive? Keep your spirits up. Big hugs to you.
Peaches- I just had a heap of blood tests done to check my hormone levels and they all came back fine. Not only has my CM changed but my breasts now get tender from O day until after period rather than just two days before period. Actually tender is an understatement - they absolutely ache, it's crazy because I am sooooo flat chested yet I feel like I'm carrying around double e boobs! It annoys me too because sore boobs was how I discovered I was pregnant with both my son and the baby we lost last year, so the sore breasts are a constant reminder of all of that. It also worries me this month because despite trying our little hearts out my boobs started aching on O day just as with every 'normal' (25 day) cycle I've had recently. Good luck with your weekend tries!
I am absolutely hanging for the testing day to come around because I am beyond obsessed with this TTC caper and knowing that this is our last chance is making it even more all encompassing.
Off to Melbourne and then the theatre tonight, so I better get organised and take my mind off this for a while (yeah right!)
Posted 04 January 2013 - 10:17 AM
Can I join?? We are in the first month TTC #3! I got postpartum thyroiditis after my last baby so my body was very out of whack, got the all clear to ttc just before Christmas.
Hope everyone has a nice short stay here!
Keep cool during this heat!
Posted 04 January 2013 - 10:31 AM
Welcome Fossy Good luck on ttc #3
Posted 04 January 2013 - 09:45 PM
AF arrived today.
Posted 04 January 2013 - 09:50 PM
Hi Fossy - good luck with TTC #3.
Posted 05 January 2013 - 02:14 PM
Luvmy3 - so so sorry about AF - I had everything crossed for you. I had a very similar experience last month though my clinic also put me on progesterone to keep things happening so not only did AF come, she was later and so we had to wait longer to get to this month (if that makes sense). All the best for the next month.
To everyone else - all the best for BFPs soon!
AFM -I'm in the 2WW and as I am on holidays, its hard to focus on anything else
I have a BT on Mon and also see my OBGYN to see how things are going as I have to use clomid, but I so so so so so so so so want to be successful this month (4th month TTC). I surged on Wed, so presuming I ovulated late Wed or Thurs and so today are 2dpo. We BD Wed (2), Thurs (2) and Fri so I really hope we caught that eggy!!
At the moment its tricky, because I have only told my mum that we are TTC and I have a pregnant SIL who is so negative about her current pregnancy I want to scream!! In fact she has been this way for all of them. This is their 4th and she falls pregnant VERY easily, so I really stew about it, any suggestions??
Well there goes another 5mins of my 2WW
Posted 05 January 2013 - 02:47 PM
I've decided this is our month! We were going to wait till feb but that feels forever. We decided last night but its day 12 today. Suddenly it feels like we are rushing!! Good luck all
Posted 05 January 2013 - 03:20 PM
Only 9 days to go until I know one way or the other!
Luvmy3 - sorry about AF, may next month be your month.
Fossy - welcome
My friend who had had the cramping and bleeding with her accidental 4th pregnancy is ok - bub had a strong heart beat and looked good so looks like the negativity didn't do any damage. I seem to be surrounded in babies again - 2 close friends are due in 6-8 weeks (which is when I would have been due with the bub we lost last year) and then another 2 friends are due later in the year (when hopefully all of us are!)
Got to go my DS is watching YouTube without me. I am really strict on what he can and can't see (he's a very sensitive little soul) so I better intervene before he finds something offensive!
Back to add- Cath83 I just noticed your sig - are you trying for twins or just sure you want another after number 3?! Good luck!

So sorry to hear AF showed up
What a rollercoaster this cycle has been for you. Sending you big hugs and I hope next cycle is yours Fossy
Hi and welcome!willsmumsos
Really really really hoping this month is your month! So much hanging on this months results, so I so hope you've got a lovely BFP coming your way! Just think tomorrow there's only 8 more days till you know
The 2WW certainly can drag, argh.
Glad to hear all is well for your friend, always a scary time when things don't go completely smoothly! I hear you on the baby boom too, one of my best friends had a baby on new years day, another had a baby girl this morning, another close friend is almost 12 weeks pregnant, my SIL is almost 15 weeks, plus all the other friends that have just had newborns/are pregnant, there's babies babies everywhere! Hoping we can join them soon cbmum
Woohoo! So exciting! Good luck for your first month then cath83
Fingers are crossed for you for this month! Hoping we get a lovely big run of BFP's in here. Good luck at your appt on monday, let us know how you go
Hi to everyone else, hope you're all going well.
AFM: Well of course my last two cycles when we weren't trying were clear as day, then this cycle I have no idea what's going on
lol. I've been using my OPK's at least twice a day, so thought for sure I'd catch my surge, but I really don't know what's happening
I did get two tests with slightly pink lines on thursday morning (not fully positive), but they then faded off again that afternoon. I also had a teeny amount of EWCM that morning, tender boobs that afternoon, then a pain in my side late that night..so then friday morning I though ahhh bugger, I probably had my surge overnight on wednesday night so missed it on my opk's, and just ovulated earlier than I was expecting on thurs night, grrrr. So the best we could do was dtd friday morning and friday afternoon and hope for the best
Pretty sure we missed the boat for this month though arghhh. But because I haven't had a positive OPK yet, I don't know for certain if I have even ovulated yet lol, so I will just keep testing and if I don't get a positive soon I guess I can assume I'm in the 2WW with not much hope LOL. So will see what happens, not holding out much hope for this month though. Don't think we'll bother trying to time DTD as close to ovulation again next month, in case we miss it completely again
Thanks for letting me ramble in here lol, TTC certainly can make you obsessive, so it's nice to have somewhere to get it all out, ha!
Hope everyone is having a good weekend! x

Cath83 - how did you go today?
I think I am secretly hoping for twins that way number 3 would have a companion but I wouldn't have to convince DH or be preg again!
Not sure what is going on with my body today - I'm bloated, have AF style cramps moving all around front and back, I'm eating like a pig, I am almost manic in my moods and have this bizarre CM. It's too late for O and too early for AF...I tried to convince myself earlier that it was just implantation but I know that's not it!
Is anyone up to testing yet? I'm desperate for someone to have good news!
Posted 07 January 2013 - 06:58 PM
- I know what you mean - about 3&4 at once as I have agreed with DH that we will have only one more. If we are doubly blessed, who am I to argue? However in saying that, I would really like just to get a BFP with #3. Even though we had to use clomid for DS, it took only one cycle and then two natural cycles for DD. This is my fourth month this time around...as for my appointment today, it went well I think. I definitely ovulated (yay! withOUT a trigger shot) and my levels were OK. I have to start some crinone tonight but my OB seemed quite pleased. Fingers crossed for a BFP next week!!! I have also had a few strange symptoms, bleeding gums yesterday and a bad headache today, slept terribly last night and have had a sore back today...dont want to get my hopes up but want to stay positive. I had another staff member tell me today she is pregnant (that's 2 in two weeks)! Maybe I can be the 3rd!Willsmumsos -
when are you testing, the 14th?
Hope everyone else is having a good week.

Sorry I've been MIA, had a wonderful holiday with extended family and then a weeks camping with little ds and dh at Gerroa.
Wow lots has been happening in here since I left for holidays, so many new ttc'ers...Yaaay!!
Welcome and hello (slightly belated I know!)Cath83, Willsmumso, Perplexity and Fossy. If I missed a new comer am sorry, and hi Luvmy3
Im so sorry about the bt results, fx for a February BFP Peaches
hi thank you for your post (a little while ago now) I've missed you too!
I hope you had a great christmas and new year as well. Sorry to hear about the confusing OPK thing, you know I think it is a bit of the whole thing, we wouldn't normally be so pedantic about the accuracy of the result if we werent ttcing. From what other people say, if you can see a very discernible strengthening in the darkness of the test line I would take it as a positive, in my vast experience ....(of one month!! LOL). Hope it becomes clearer and that you dont miss the surge, which I am sure you wont. So excited for you, you really deserve a bfp quickly my fx for you.Cbmum
Get Rushin' girl, Soo excited for you too, good decision, earlier you go for it the better I think
. Wishing you a speedy ttc time. Hope you haven't been working too hard, were you able to get any time off? 3sACharm
have you "officially" got going yet? I haven't caught up on the old thread yet so, sorry if this is repeated!.Cath83
, Glad your appointments went well. And things do come in three's!! Hopefully you will be next after your work colleague!Willsmumsos
I think I've come in at the end of a twins conversation, but secretly dream about having twins too!! I don't think I would be so lucky, but I have thought about it a lot and for the same reasons with dh!Perplexity
havent read all the posts yet, but good luck to you with ttc#3.Fossy
hi and hope your well good luck with ttc#3 too!
AFM Well no new year bfp, AF arrived 8dpo on boxing day, that really sucked! But was very proud of my not dwelling on it and getting on with the holiday and enjoying it. However this last post luteal phase was only 8 days so really hoping that its a one off and not a regular thing! This month is probably out for me unless I manage to O early, as dh will be interstate across the crucial time as the shorter cycle last month, of course, has thrown out all our plans and timetable by about 10 days. I am going for my Sonohysterogram and tubal patency tests after my next AF so am actually, if I don't in the meantime get a bfp, hurrying up AF's arrival. Apparently these tests are done on cd 5-10 for most accuracy.
OMG Im so back to ttc land!!!
My little ds is going nuts better go and fix a late late lunch for him!! My big ds has only just got home after two days out!
Posted 09 January 2013 - 09:26 PM
YAY, so nice to have you back
Have missed you! Sounds like you had a lovely time away, so nice you got a little extended camping holiday with just DH and DS
That would've been great.
So bummed you didn't get a lovely christmas/new years BFP though
Not nice when AF arrives at all, let alone early like that! So annoying DH will now be away at the crucial time, that is so frustrating. Have my fingers crossed by some miracle your body wants to co operate with his schedule
Good luck with your appt, make sure you let us know how you go with it, will be stalking for an update when the time comes.
Hope you've been able to settle back into normal life after your busy christmas time, sometimes it feels like you need a holiday to recover from your holiday lol!
Very glad to have you back
Oh and thanks lovely, I should've just trusted my little OPK's that have served me so well in the past LOL. Ended up getting a very clear positive and actually ovulated on day 17, so we didn't miss the boat after all, woohoo. This TTC business certainly knows how to make you turn obsessive and crazy haha. So at least we're in with some kind of chance for this month, will just see how we go! cath83
Things are sounding very promising! Good luck, can't wait till it's testing time, so exciting.
Hi to everyone else, hope everyone is going well. Is anyone testing soon? Hoping we get some lovely BFP's in here soon.
All is good here. After all the stressing out, I officially ovulated on day 17 anyway LOL. So at least that gave us a better chance to get some BD in at the right time. Tomorrow will be 3DPO haha, time is going so slow
Hopfully there's some more chatter and BFP's in here to make the TWW go a bit faster. Good luck to all those TTC xx

Hi Valhalla and peaches
nice to have the oldgang back. There are lots of newbies and I'm finding it difficult to track everyone. Is there a trick to it? I think I must be a bit silly. Valhalla
your Christmas sounds wonderful. I'll be watching for an update regarding your appt and hope that your timing with dh will work out for you. It's a tough business isn't it considering we spend most of our lives avoiding pregnancy!! Had some time off which was lovely, start back tomorrow which is tough after living like a queen for two weeks
now I need to go back to try and pay the credit card off
nice to have you back xxPeaches
- yay! Those bloody opk's worked. Me I'm still trying to work out what the hell is going on
so hope your little eggy catches on. So exciting to be in the hunt. Now for the longest wait ever......Cath83
sounds all very exciting and positive
I hope you have some exciting news to share with us all soon.Luvmy3
- hope you're hanging in there. I imagine you're feeling pretty down at the moment
we are here to help you along your journey so feel free to vent
AFM I'm not sure what's going on with my cycle we didn't end up dtd till day 13 so not sure whether I missed the boat or not. Might have to get on the opk band wagon
my AF is due 23rd so we'll see how we go. I really hope someone has some Bfp happiness soon so we can all share it together
Posted 10 January 2013 - 07:38 PM
Hi everyone, how are we all?? I'm here to do personals ~Peaches~
I have my fingers crossed for you that this month is your month!!valhalla007
Don't be sorry! We are gonna start trying after my period on the 15th/16th (
I just checked...that is 5/6 days away...OMG i'm 2 weeks off ttc
How are you?cbmum
Fingers crossed for you too!!
Hello and how are you to everyone else? As cbmum said there is so many newbies it's hard to keep track, i'm so sorry if I miss out on giving you a personal.
AFM- Now under the realisation that ttc will start in 2 weeks i'm kinda freaking out...and I won't dare tell DH cause he will freak out more and put ttc off till next month! Since taking my preconception tablets my ovulation has been smoother, smoother in the sense that once upon a time I could tell by the cramping and things that ovulation was happening and now there is nothing!! I'm gonna buy some OPK's but i'm still only new to them and don't feel confident in using them. I guess i'm just gonna have to learn quick smart!
I think that is all I want to say....oh I brought some itti's today....can't wait to try cloth...this will be my first baby in cloth as my other 2 were in disposables from birth to TT.
Ohhh i'm getting a little nervous and scared thinking about this..what the hell am I getting myself into
