Hi ladies!
No luck for me last month, but I'm now at cycle day 28 and could probably test tomorrow but I don't have any tests with me. I have been sooo positive this whole cycle and then today my temp dropped. Really not sure what to think now. Check it out below and give me your thoughts:

My Ovulation Chart


Hi Shannon, I am 12DPO, I was feeling so confident, until my temps starting dropping too sad.gif mine started a few days ago.  I even had pink spotting on Fri 10DPO which i have never had before and assumed that it was implantation bleeding, but did a HPT and it was negative.  So just waiting for AF to arrive now.  i am not sure if you can be pregnant and have declining temps?  All the best for the testing though, you never know right!!



AFM, just waiting for the witch to arrive, this is the month i have felt the least pregnant, no cramps leading up to AF which normally happens.  Have a look at my chart, temps starte3d dropping after 7DPO, and my temps are right on the coverline.  I am going to book into see a FS as I think I have a problem with my progesterone, even though I have 14 day luteal phase.. its all so confusing.

Hi All.

Thought March may have been the month but despite the fact that AF is still not here (2 days overdue according to my regular cycle) I'm testing negative so waiting for AF to arrive so we can get on with the next month of TTC. Cycle is normally no more than 24 days but here I am 26 days and nothing, not even the feeling that its coming. Anyway don't have a test day yet but once AF turns up I'll put my test date down.

This month I'm starting daily OPK's to pinpoint my actual ovulation day and will also start temping so I can take my charts along to my gyno when I see her again in June if nothing happens in the meantime. Given that I'm almost 38 and had my tubes redone 6 months ago I don't want to wait too long before we look into what's happening or why it's not happening.

Goodluck ladies, lets hope that April is a lucky month.

Hi all. I am due to test on the 19th, which is when I go to Vanuatu for a romantic holiday with DP. So it could either be a BFP or big fat cocktails by the pool.
Fingers crossed for us all!

Please put me down as testing on the 14th (although I'll probably cheat & test earlier). I'm having some good vibes about this month! Good luck ladies.

Could you please put me down for the 14th too. Good luck to everybody this month, this month has to be better than March!

#13 bex18

Posted 01 April 2012 - 09:27 PM

well I am out already, AF arrived today, thanks a lot 1st April, stupid April Fools.  Well this means that I should be able to scrap in for the end of the month, Mags please change 4th April to the 28th April.

Baby dust to all this month, lets make it better than March.  I might be scarce this month, want to try and take a more relaxed approach this month so might stay clear of forums, and dr google.

Will check back in at the end of the month, thank you for all the advice over the last few months, take care x

Hey gals, i've been taking a TTC break - but a string of high temps and expecting AF anyday so who knows. Add me to test on April 4 original.gif

Oh and we had lots of BFPs in March in the TTC#2 thread - it was a bumper crop - 5 or 6 I think! Crazy!! Gives me hope ... thinking i've gone off the idea of a baby a bit - my hands got so sore last time from carpel tunnel - not sure how I feel about going through that again ... and I gained so much weight - it was depressing ... 26 kilo and 12 of that was fluid! Nightmare! How do you explain that to people, that you lost 12 kilo of fluid and 4 of baby overnight just by giving birth! Crazy!

#20 RachealJane

Posted 02 April 2012 - 08:24 AM

Best of luck all!

I think O day should be tomorrow or the next few days anyway so i'll update what day i'll be testing when i know for sure.

Here's to a great month of bfp's.

#21 *Katey*

Posted 02 April 2012 - 08:59 AM

I generally don't really get to test, as my luteal phase is so short, that by the time 10DPO is here (which is when I'd like to test) my AF has arrived.

But, put me down for testing on the 18th, that's when AF is due.

Hi Ladies

njs - Your chart looks good this month! Has FF called triphasic? Goodluck.

Shannon - Goodluck for testing.

waves.gif  to everyone else.

AFM - CD16 and still no O, not sure what happened the other day CP was open but now its gone back to its old state. Praying that i O on CD18-19 like the first few months and not CD24 like last month. Still trying to do the every 2 days BD though. Hoping the dr has some news for me when i go there, after i eventually O and get my 21 day progesterone done. My guess is its going to be low but i dont think she can do anything about ti until after the 12 month mark? Ive been thinking lately that my DD is almost going to be at school by the time i have another one, i didnt really want that big of an age gap sad.gif

Mags - Can you take my name off the BFP list from last month OR change it to Angel baby. Will let you know a test date when i finally have one lol

Hi ladies!

Good luck to all for April! Here's hands.gif hoping for a round of Christmas/New Year's Babies!!

This is my first cycle using OPKs, and on Friday I was worried that I was at CD17 with no O, but the line got progressively darker over the weekend, so I am confident we might get the timing right this month!

And DH surprised me by revealing that he has been chatting with some other dad's at work about TTC and getting their tips - all of which I have learned from EB and chatted to him about and thought he wasn't paying attention, (and maybe he wasn't as it took another bloke to tell him the same thing for him to take notice). But I don't care, it's just nice that he cares enough to seek advice, and tells me he wants a baby as much as I do wub.gif .

Have a good month!

Hi all, FX to everyone for this month!!

I left you all i the lurch on the March thread and thought I'd come back and fill you in!!

So I have been getting faint positives since the really faint one on sat and I called my doc (lucky for me she is a close friend of the family so even though she wasnt working, I called her at home! hehe) and she confirmed it for me!! (I was worried the late pick up and faint lines meant it might not stick or something)
Basically she said I must have ovulated really late and/or implated late so the negative blood test I had was right because it must have happened around that time so wouldnt yet show up.
She agrees that we'll have to watch the HCG levels as the tests are still faint (darker each day but only slightly), but didnt sound too worried.

To say the least I am Excited biggrin.gif biggrin.gif It feels weird though because of the weird start I dont think I can be truly excited until the bloods come back with a BFP. But I am not complaining!!

Will be thinking of you all and FX for a bumper month! Will be lurking! original.gif

AFM -Tested this morning and got a BFP (bloody faint possitive LOL).   It was very light but definitely there!  Made myself pee about 1/2 hour  later and think I got another line, but it was very faint.  Against my  better judgement I got out the Clearblue Digital and did the test with  pee from the 3rd time i'd pee'd that day, and it came up 'Not  Pregnant'.  I should have known better though, the digital ones say not to use them until AF is overdue!

Something has to be making me feel so sick!  I thought about spinach earlier and nearly chucked up all over my keyboard!  And I barely ate anything yesterday!

I'm not calling it a BFP till I can test tomorrow and confirm it.  FX it's not more dud tests!

Edited - Removed bit about lines on digital test, have since read that it means nothing on them!
