I’ve been a bit MIA from in here lately.
Doesn’t look like we’ve had a great month in here.
Not a whole lot here, my bbt is all over the shop this month, so hard to tell what it’s doing. I *think* I’m due to O within next 7ish days. I’m getting blinking smiley faces, I’m not getting my hopes up for this cycle, but we’ll see.
Hope everyone is doing ok

Hi all, I tested yesterday with clearblue ovulation test strip for the first time and it says I wasnt ovulating just a stranded light smile. Today I tested again and got the solid smile. Does that mean I am ovulating now or am I ovulating in the next 24/48hours?
When should be do BD?
Thanks in advance.

Solid smiley is that you’ll ovulate in next 24-36 hours, you need to BD today and tomorrow to be covered.

So tonight and the next 3 days?
Yep, should be covered well.

Bit of a late reply, but i'm also out this month. AF didn't show up until CD33 this month, which may be my irregularity coming back, but I sure hope not.
Hopefully June will be a better month for us all! XX

I havent updated for a while either. AF finally arrived at day 37, longest cycle Ive ever had. Im now at day 11 and back on the horse so to speak but I have nfi when to expext to O. I guess we'll be busy for the next week or two.

I’m working towards my FET after my mmc and d&c at the end of March, and was thinking everything was going along fine and the only issue I’d have is whether the embryo stuck or not. Of course my body just won’t play along, which is the theme of my life for the past 1.5 years on this ttc journey.
Had my scan and second bloods this morning. Estrogen hasn’t budged, and should have been working it’s way from 175 to 1,000 to signal ovulation, but is completely stalled. My scan showed a very thin lining, which has never happened to me before, and only small follicles, nothing big enough to be moving towards ovulation. I’m already at CD14, when I was assuming I’d be really close to O, and thus close to transfer.
Luckily my dr is really receptive and even though she wanted to continue unmedicated and scan again on Thursday, I explained I’m leaving the country on CD32 (which should have been well outside the window for transfer), and she agreed for me to start a low dose of gonal-f to try to mature a follicle and grow my lining.
I was pretty gutted hearing that I’m so far behind in this cycle and it feels like once again my body is failing at just being normal. I had a cry in the phone booth at work after getting the results on the phone, and am feeling marginally better about trying the gonal to move things along, but I’ve still lost so much of the hope and optimism I’d had for this cycle.

This really is a bad month. Sorry to hear your body isn't playing ball beachesbaby. I hope that you respond well to the medication and things are back on track soon.
I'm currently day 13 and don't think I'm going to o in the next couple of days, but really hope that this cycle is a little more predictable than the last 7 or 8 week long one.

Sorry ladies been MIA... I’m Day 11 of my injections & scan & bloods tomorrow to confirm I’m ready for egg pick up on Thursday!
I’m a hormonal & emotional wreck...
Hopefully it will be all worth it!

12dpo today bfn... I feel ok though I think I’d talked myself out of a positive before I’d even tested so it would have been a shock if I’d got one!
Good luck to those coming up to testing!
Moving on to TTC June
