Time for a new thread!

I’m CD1 today and this is my 4th cycle trying for baby #3. Hoping this is my lucky month as we are taking a break after this cycle as I don’t want a newborn or baby due right when my oldest starts school 😕 so we will skip a January and possibly Feb due date.

Baby dust for everyone this March 💫

How everyone going?

fingers crossed for you tinkerbell86, hopefully this is you month


AFM - I’m DPO10, strangely I’ve been able to hold off testing early this month, but I think it’s because I don’t feel confident about this cycle. We didn’t BD enough and I don’t think it would have been at the right time. We were like ships passing in the night it, it just didn’t happen.

Anyway, guess I’ll know for sure in a few days

Posting so I can find it again :)
I’m CD18. Not really sure whether I have O or not yet. It has been a funny cycle. We’ve done as much BD as either of us can handle though.

I’m currently 4dpo and hoping to get a sticky one this time.
I’ve had bad cramping today so not sure what that is.
Due for AF on 22nd March.
Good luck everyone I’m looking forward to sharing the journey

Good luck ladies! I'm 2DPO, will test on 19/03. I think we BD at the right times so I have a lot hope for this month...

Popping my head in to keep up and to say hi. But I still haven’t had my first AF after having DD over 7 months ago, so we’re NTNP for now until I can at least track my cycles.

Good luck to everyone for March!

The TWW is horrible, 12DPO and BFN today. I wasn’t very hopeful for this cycle, but in the last couple of days there were some symptoms that got me thinking just maybe...

I'm thinking now that it might just be the precursor to a heavy AF, see what the next few days bring

Killing me too Sarah, and I think I'm only 3DPO... Fingers crossed it's not AF for you! Keep us posted x

I’m 1DPO and sooooo impatient. I have a good feeling about this cycle.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you Sarah.
Good luck everyone.

CD1 here. Very disappointed to be starting another month after having a few symptoms and feeling quite confident.
This will be month 10 for us. However we won't be actively trying as my due date would line right up with Christmas, so we will just see what happens and try to relax a bit this month, then I will be picking up some OPK's to try next month.

Fingers crossed for you Sarah.

Good luck everyone.

Sorry to hear Inda.

AFM, BFN again this morning, AF is due tomorrow or Friday

Sorry Inda. It's so frustrating and 10mths is a long time... Remind me, do you have children already? Just wondering if you had issues before if so

We have a 22 month old DD, she took us 9 months of TTC. We did some investigative testing (bloods/ultrasounds etc) back then. Nothing came up with any reasons. I did go have some bloods taken the other week for just a general check up also, but also because I hadn't been back in since my D&C in September.

Hi all,

CD 20 and not due to O for another 14 days :omg:  
Really hoping to O earlier but it's been consistent the last two cycles.
I've been getting visible pale lines on my OPK's for a couple days now but not getting any darker yet.


Has anyone who has breast fed noticed a change in their cycle after stopping? I'm hoping that mine will  get shorter now that I've stopped.

I ended up spotting for a few days, then getting the period from hell as my first back after my MMC 8 weeks ago.

I think I'm now around 2dpo, which would be a two day delay in ov from my previous pattern, but ewcm for two days and other symptoms suggests it's accurate enough (since I don't temp).

Trying for pregnancy 4, child 3. DS is 7, DD is 4. I'm 32. Trying since last June, still trying to shake off that I'd be 14 weeks pregnant rn and get focused back onto ttc. My body is worse than I am - I wasn't sure if I'd try again yet, but the second I was fertile my body overrode every sane thought and was like "NOW". Apparently I'm just here for the ride!

8dpo with another 8 days till af. Symptoms so far include sure boobs, cramping on and off and bad mood swings. I also fell asleep in the middle of the day yesterday which I don’t normally do.
Want to get excited but trying not to after a recent mc.
Hope everyone else is doing well

CD1 today, did feel like it was was coming, but it’s still somewhat sad.

This will be our 5th month trying, really hoping for this one. Due to my age and some other factors doctor has suggested we start testing if we’ve had no success after 6 months. I’m hoping we’ll get there before we have to start all that.

Thankyou, I’m hoping too.
I’ve been up all night feeling so sick 🤢 I really want to test but worried as I’m only 10dpo and don’t want to be hurt. I did tell myself I would wait until I was due but it’s so hard
