Thought I'd kick us off for July. CD2 for me. A little disappointed but my last cycle was much shorter and with a longer LP than the one prior, so I'm feeling much more positive about this next cycle. Not sure if I'll make it to testing in July based on how long my cycles have been, but hopefully.

Good luck to everyone trying in July!

Hey. I'm cd14 with a flashing smiley yesterday (still to test today). This is cycle no 2 ttc no 2! Ds is 13 months and took a while to conceive.

Oh, hi! May as well join this one :) I think we are in the tww, but unsure as cycles have been all over the place! I dont think we dtd at the right time as I have been sick. We might have been lucky, but if not that's why :(
I think this is cycle 3? Maybe 4? Ttc #2, and DS is 14months old.

I’ll be in this one as well. My second FET was a negative, after my fresh transfer and mmc in late March. I’m feeling positive about my next FET, we’ll be doing a double transfer hopefully in a little over a week, so I’m still early, only cd10 here today!

I'm join in for July. Missed o day this month so hoping to catch the next egg. Dd just turned 3, she took about 10 cycles to concieve so I'm bracing myself to be here for a little bit (although I know others have had much longer and tricker journeys). Looking forward to getting to know you lovely ladies more.

I’m in for July on CD7 (I think) I had a MC last month at 6 weeks so let’s see what happens this month.

Hi to everyone who has joined. When are you planning to test M2468?

Sorry for your loss ausfarmerswife. I hope you have recovered well physically and your rainbow baby comes easily.

Good luck beaches!

I’m back, had AF for 13 days, ended yesterday. I’m usually 6 days, since no sign of abnormalities in any recent ultrasound, also bloods showed HCG of 5 on day 9 of AF, Dr pretty much said early pregnancy loss would be the explanation for elevated HCG & prolonged AF.

Hey all.
I'm back again too. CD5 here after my first AF following our 2nd MMC & D&C. I'm not hopeful that we will conceive for a few months though. DS1 was a one hit wonder. DS2 was almost 12 months. MMC1 was 18ish months and MMC2 was almost 6 months... So I reckon we will be a late this year conception if at all!!

@Rowd I usually wait for AF rather than testing - I find it easier to cope with AF, somehow? I once got a faint BFP on a test I did the day AF was due, but when I retested 2 days later the line was gone and AF arrived shortly after. Since then I decided I'd rather not know... :(

Sorry to hear for those who have had losses. Fingers crossed for July!

@rowd had the results from my bloods today Body is back to normal (I only mc 1 week ago) dunno if that makes it count as Cd8 or god knows what, will start the opks today, follow the SMEP & drink my magic smoothie concoction that I’ve had both months I’ve conceived first time trying.

Good luck to everyone else.

Hi everyone!

Tentatively joining in as I'm preparing for my first FET this month but only if my PGS test results come back in the nick of time!  If they do, and we have some PGS normal embies, looks like I'll be having a frozen embryo transfer around mid July.

This is my first round of IVF following 18 cycles of TTC #1 (unexplained infertility).  We currently have 8 embies being PGS tested - hoping for a few good ones!

Good luck to everyone in July xx

Fingers crossed for many embies and hopeful times ahead with a July transfer pheebs.
What is this magic smoothie concoction you soak of ausfarmerswife? I'd get on board with any extra suggestions that are a little outside the box. When I had my first pregnancy that resulted in an early mc I ate red bean steam buns heaps in the days leading up to O day. After my d&c I tried many months off steam buns before I realised it probably wasn't going to be the magic wand I'd hoped hehe. Was a very yummy couple of months though 😂

Think I o'd yesterday on the first day of our honeymoon! Wouldn't that be a cool story to tell later 😃

It’s just a little mix I blended up (dietitian so it’s ok haha) I’ve used it, and I don’t know if it’s coincidence or not but 3 other people who were ttc and after 3 months I gave a blend to and boom that month baby!

But the ingredients aren’t readily available I had to order them all 😂 but I do have ALOT of it still.

Sounds like you better get drinking those smoothies then hehe

Baby dust loulou would be a wonderful story, although I think any time a baby is made is special no matter how or when. Enjoy you honeymoon, are you away anywhere lovely so I can live vicariously 😜

Hi ladies I’m jumping back in here too.

Month 2 TTC #2, DD is almost 20 months and was far to easy to conceive (second period after having no periods for three years being on depo) so I’m expecting it to take a much longer time this time around. She’s also still breastfeeding morning, evening and overnight so that may be playing with my cycles.

I’m on CD2. Last cycle was 40 days which is super unusual for me, pretty sure I O’d on CD28 or 29 which again is unusual for me. Hoping this month that I can read my body a bit better and catch O when it happens.

Not sure when I’ll be testing. My usual cycle is 28-29 days but I’ve had a couple of short ones and now this long one since getting my period back at 15 months postpartum so who knows really.

Hoping everyone has a short stay here and looking forward to the BFP’s this month has to bring us!

Welcome ljp. I'm also TTC while breastfeeding (10 month old). My cycle has been all over the place, but seems to be improving slowly.

Loulou, what great timing! A honeymoon baby would be lovely.

Peebs, I hope your results come back in time and you get to transfer soon - keep us updated.

How is everyone going?

I've been struggling with my own thoughts this week - it just feels like after 20ish months of nothing, maybe it will never happen for us. Maybe my body just can't do this.

I'm seeing some friends tomorrow who are due later this month (I know they started trying quite a few months after I did) and even though I know I should feel happy for them, I'm dreading it quite a bit...

Hi everyone! This month will be our first one TTC. Currently on CD34 and waiting very impatiently for AF so we can start trying.

We had decided to wait for til after our first wedding anniversary, which was last weekend. So now just waiting for this cycle to be over and we can officially start!

Good luck to everyone :)

Good luck all!!!!

Mama j I really hope your journey is a quick one.

I got my BFP this morning after 16 months.. I tested at 12dpo after brushing my teeth triggered a vomiting episode and brownish spotting through 7 to 10dpo.

I'm quite copy today though - like AF is coming and I'm freaking that it's not a sticky one.

huge congrats moineau! I have everything crossed for you that you are holding youe baby in 9 months.

m2468 I'm sorry you're feeling like that - I'm on month 19, and started IVF in Feb, with one positive which unfortunately led to a mmc in late March/April. Almost every one of my friends either has a brand new baby, is heavily pregnant, or have a few little ones already. It's really upsetting sometimes, as like you know they all started after me (except one friend whose 3 week old I'm meeting today). Some people are empathetic, like this particular friend I'm seeing today, and some like to remind me I'm "young" (not really), and have plenty of time to have another (I don't want another, I want my baby who died).

It's okay to feel upset about your friends' good luck and fertility while you're struggling wondering if it'll ever happen for you. I go through these feelings daily, and you can only be kind to yourself. You're certainly not alone here, but it really sucks, and I'm sorry you're struggling.

Congrats moineau, that's really exciting! Best of luck for the next 9 months :)
