Happy Dance time for me!
DH has just rung to let me know he will now be home Friday night. I just hope he wont be too tired!
Although does anyone else notice how neat their house stays when their DH goes away for work?

Awesome Princess Peach
DH hasnt gone away, but our house was a lot cleaner when we didnt have two dogs. But i owulodnt trade them for the world
Afm, I got a phone call from the FS office and they had a cancellation, so I am seeing them next week instead of the week after
Posted 17 January 2013 - 08:59 PM
AF arrived for me today - about 4 days early. Had a good feeling about us BD ing around O time but alas I was wrong...oh well! Came on very heavy and very suddenly which I was not at all expecting, no obvious PMS symptoms either.
Minnie - can you please move me to AF? Not sure exactly where I belong right now.
I am also very sorry to hear about another chemical pg for you....I don't know a lot about this, does someone car to enlighten me?
Jessietroy - thrilled for you that you're getting into FS sooner, all the best!
Princesspeah - my DH only works away from home a night once or twice a year, but even if he's just out all day I notice a distinct difference! Lol.....oh well, keeps me on my toes!

kmg - sounds like 2012 has been rough - hoping 2013 brings new beginnings (in the form of a BFP of course!)
Princess & Jessie - Happy dancing for you both
Mrs Shine - nasty nasty AF creeping up on you like that!
I don't know a lot about chemical pregnancies either, but from what I've read on eb, it sounds like they are really the name given to early miscarriages. It's often quite early on & without the modern tests that can detect pregnancies before AF is due, you might not even have known you were pregnant (although us TTCers would probably be paying close attention to our bodies & know something's up). But it can also still be classed as a cp even if its after you've had Pregnancy confirmed by doc, so not just before AF is due. I'm not sure if there is some time limit on when it is called a CP vs Miscarriage, but a loss is a loss, so either way it's pretty heartbreaking
I've also read they are a lot more common than we realise (estimated up to 70%!). It is usually the body detecting that something isn't right with the egg, so it decides not to go through with the pregnancy.
Hope that explains it ok. For those of you who have gone through a cp, please correct me if I've got anything wrong. The last thing I want to do is upset anyone, but also thought you may not want to be the ones to explain it either.
Big hugs to Min & any others who have had to experience CPs
Ok, time for me to (finally) hit the hay. Night all!
Posted 18 January 2013 - 09:09 AM
Big hugs to those ladies who have CPs. I had one first month TTC, very unpleasant and I guess it gave me the hope that i can actually get preggas.
I am weird at the mo, I think i have illusionary EPS'. I worked with a lady yesterday who reeked of cigarette smoke and nearly gagged, was on the tram and could smell someone else who was full of cigarette smoke too. Crazy Crazy. Feel blah but have had a bit of a head cold this week. Back on my bike fingers crossed this weekend.
AF is due next Friday so who knows what's going on with me. I think it's all in my head.
kmg - I feel the same, i also had 3 lost loved ones at the end of last year and am hoping 2013 brings much health and happiness to my circle in life.
PP - good luck happy dancing, fingers, toes and eyes crossed for you!
anyways will be posting more soon, am catching up on the personals.
sticky baby dust!

O day is today.

Hi Ladies , I am a long time stalker of this thread (and others) and I have finally decided to put myself out there and be part of the TTC #1 group!!! My husband (31) and I (29) have this year started TTC’ing and this is our first cycle. I went off the OCP last October, begin taking pre pregnancy vitamins but have waited till this year to try. I also started temping in October to try and get a feel for my cycles so that we would be good to go and when I work out how I will put a link up to that. I am quite an anxious introvert so I am interested to see how much I contribute to the threads and I am sure I will ask some ridiculous questions so apologies in advance for that. I am also looking forward to getting to know all you ladies as I begin on this journey. Thanks, B Minnie – I am currently D4PO but as this is my first thread add me as a newbie!!

Mrs Bee, speaking as someone who officially went nuts a few days back trust me when I say telling invisible people whats happening makes everything better
Am.currently counting my AF blessings by lying on the lounge with a glass of wine, watching the Bodyguard and contemplating the fact that no one, abdolutely NO ONE asks me for ID anymore... *officially past my prime!*
Posted 19 January 2013 - 08:01 AM
Welcome Mrs Bee!
Min - good idea. Hopefully it will make it easier to keep up - don't know how you do it sometimes, but you do a great job!
Posted 20 January 2013 - 11:39 AM
what is wrong with me?
feel it today
Posted 20 January 2013 - 11:59 AM
Babystepz! I'm being a sook today too... But could just be because I'm watching Jillian Michaels!
Hoping its a symptom for you! Especially with the heightened sense of smell & head cold (as immune system lowers when preggers). Fingers crossed for you!!
Posted 20 January 2013 - 09:50 PM
Thanks so much for the explanation Happylife
that makes lots more sense now. One more stupid question, unless you have had a confirmed BFP is there anyway of knowing that you'd had one? Does is present as bleeding?
AFM - AF finished already, (Minnieme can you please move me to? Am I waiting to O now?) it was less than 3 days, 2.5 in total and crazy heavy (sorry TMI) and then just stopped very suddenly. Really odd for me, was always 5 days and occasionally 7. I guess that's the other reason I was asking about CP's. AF hadn't actually been due until today so it was 4 days early. I guess my cycles are just all over the place still.
2013 already presenting as a great year so far with wonderful work opportunities coming my way in the last week. DH and I are off to Hawaii next month too which I'm pretty exited about. 8 nights with some friends of ours, fingers crossed for a holiday baby!
Baby dust to all!

Im so desperate to fall pregnant! I feel obsessed
I think I ovulated around the 12/13/14 of this month.
I tested today and nothing
with one of the early.predictor tests (says it works from 7 days).
Is there a chance i could be pregnant still? Did I test too early? Im just desperate to know. AF is due 26/01.
Posted 21 January 2013 - 09:44 AM
- I would wait until AF is due, it may be too early. be patient lovely. but i know how crazy TTC can be (see below).
Welcome to the Newbies, hope your stay is short.
AFM - I have lost the plot, spent all last night with a UTI, didn't get to sleep until 3am. So TIRED. Feel like I am falling apart, a work mate came over and I was all over the place. First thing she said to me was "are you pregnant?". Anyway she doesn't know that we have been trying so I said, no, I don't think so. AF due Friday if I make it through the crazy. Teary, clumsy and ridiculous at the mo, also dislocated my finger yesterday. This has to be the worst PMS ever!
Posted 21 January 2013 - 10:15 AM
Hey Minnie - I think you've gor me down as 2WW and as missing
I'm 2WW. Thanks xx
Welcome Mrs Bee and any other newbie I might have missed.
Mrs Bee - I agree with MooGuru - it's sometimes a lot easier to talk to people in this capacity than IRL. It's a useful place so ask away with anything you want to know and there's always someone who can help, advise or just be there to listen/sympathise/empathise/go crazy with
Babystepz... sounding promising? I too am due this weekend. Ouch re: your finger. How did you do that??
Posted 21 January 2013 - 12:09 PM
- not sure if it's promising or an early indicator of me being taxi'ed away by the men in white coats!.
ooooh testing buddy! Fingers crossed. My finger got dislodged whilst putting my dog on his lead, he is 7months and crazy and didn't want to go back on and so ended up popping it out, the crying continued and then i popped her back in, just a lot of bruising.
Just sat down to have a cuppa of chamomile, hope to calm my wee little head down. It's been quite the rollercoaster this month.
