Hello lovelies... time to start another month already!
I’m onCD8 took my last Letrozole last night (10mg a day this month)... hoping for 2-3 good looking follicles at my scan on Wednesday then I will probably trigger on Thursday... for the first time since starting to TTC we actually have nothing on during my fertile window! We have always been on holidays or on trips or at events...
so hoping this month will be a little more relaxed!

I’m currently CD5 today after not O’ing last cycle.

Is anyone waiting to test in the next week?

I hope April is our month, for all of us!!!

I'm 5dpo, all out of ICs from last cycle....Will have to get a 7 pack of FRERs and start testing "late" if I don't want to run out of them too early, haha! (POAS addict!!)

I’m on CD42, my longest cycle ever, I hope AF rocks up really soon. Have a few appts next week, one with FS to get a new plan. No idea if/when in April I’ll O, it’ll depend on when AF arrives.

Two of my friends just announced pregnancies, one was announced with “oops, we weren’t even trying” with a laugh emoji, I may have hidden her newsfeed for the moment.

Kind of, before I lost 50 kilos my I only got AF once every 3 months, as I started dropping significant weight cycles became very predictable and regular and have been since December 2017. I know weight whether too high or low does impact cycles, my weight is at a point where that shouldn’t be an issue anymore, all my hormones are perfect, no issues, ultrasounds coming back with no issues, it’s odd that for so long my cycles have been good, and all of a sudden last two cycles have been irregular.

Hi guys! I’m currently on our honeymoon in New Zealand! I got my peak this morning so due to O tomorrow maybe but I think it’s safe to say we’ll have timing covered this month 😂😉
Last cycle before we start ivf so crossing everything this is our month!
Best of luck to everyone, hope we have a much better April! Xx

Hi all! Here is to April!
CD6 here, so only 16-17 days til ovulation (damn long cycles!!!).
When we lost our bub I had a psychic reading done by a really wonderful lady who had done them before for me. She said April would be significant and we would have a 3rd little boy join our family, so we will see! I had a reading with her when pregnant with my youngest and she was 100% spot on!

Hello Everyone!

I am new to posting and new to TTC! I wasn't sure if I should join this month or last month as I O'd on the 25th, but will be testing within April.
I am currently CD20, or 7dpo. This is our first cycle actually TTC for our second baby. Looking forward to trying and well wishes for everyone for the month!

I’m a little confused...I’ve had 4 solid circles in a row and now on CD13. I usually ovulate CD14/15 and usually get flashing smilies for a few days prior. Anyone had this and then bam solid smiley next day? Hubby is going away this week so was hoping O would be very soon!!

Welcom TahleaB!! Good luck with TTC #2!

#18 Peebs

Posted 01 April 2019 - 02:39 PM

Hey Bumble, I had that this cycle! 3 days of empty circle then solid smiley on cd12! I usually get 2-3 days of flashing but not this time

Thanks Peebs!! :) hope the honeymoon is going well and you get the most sought after BFP from it! I have everything crossed for us...we have been in here too long lol

#20 Peebs

Posted 01 April 2019 - 03:26 PM

We definitely have Bumble!! Fingers crossed we can both graduate to a DIG group this cycle!!

I hope April is good to you all! Welcome TahleaB.
Fingers crossed we see some BFPs this month.
This month marks 12 months on the TTC journey for me where I have only ovulated 3 or 4 times all up.
I’m hoping the FS has some solutions; it’s been long getting to this point. So far lots of tests and surgery for me and I thought I would be there by now.
I get asked so often when I’m having babies, like I can just snap my fingers and I’m there. At times I wish I was brave enough to be totally frank, though I’m a pretty private person and this would only serve to fuel gossip. I’m glad for this forum and the support you ladies give me. There’s only so often I can vent my frustrations to DH without being repetitive. So thank you to all of you who have listened and offered their advice to me, it helps knowing I’m not alone and there are others who understand.

Hi ladies Happy April xx can’t be worse than last month, good luck everyone.

Thanks everyone for the lovely messages it really means a lot xx

I’m still in limbo land I’m doing opk’s to make sure I don’t miss O but still on sure if there is anything left from my last pregnancy I’m in to the early pregnancy clinic on Friday morning hopefully I don’t need a d&c.  Never thought I would be looking forward to AF and the TWW 😄 but I would just love to be back in the running...

Nat I’ve gotten that a few times, “you’re 33 when are going to start having them”, “you’re not getting any younger” etc. I’ve taken to asking anyone that asks when their husbands are getting vasectomies, shuts the convo down real quick.

#24 Nat2910

Posted 01 April 2019 - 07:43 PM

Haha I’ll have to try that tactic #YKG.
I know most people are being sincere though it does get tiring.
JC22, so true - it’s a new month and hopefully things get back on track for you. You’re one strong lady, big hugs to you.

Sorry if this is totally TMI but I have no where else to ask...

So after we BD I lay down for about 20-30mins... but as soon as I get up I feel like all the sperm just ‘slide’ on out!

Does this happen to anyone else? Any suggestions on how to get it to stay put???
