Thanks @simbacom! I suppose I’m due to have bloods on the 9th but will know closer to the date. Also I hope you guys don’t mind me hanging around here, I’m not exactly trying naturally but I’m also not doing IVF so don’t really belong in the Assisted Conception area.. I feel like I belong here seeing as I’m still tracking naturally and BD’ing 🤷‍♀️
Good luck to everyone!

*sigh* another month with BFNs.

I haven't ovulated so I don't know when I will be testing. It might be another 40 day cycle, so I won't bother if it is.

What I really mean is I don't plan to test, but will test at least 3 times unplanned.

Perhaps put me down for the 15th @simbacom

I think this is just a TTC thread, assisted or unassisted, so everyone is welcome :)

I'm only cd 6 so not sure exactly when I'll test yet. According to my app I should be testing around 27th Oct.

Baby dust to all of us 🤞

Fingers crossed for lots of October BFP’s. I probably won’t be testing this month. AF hasn’t arrived after the d&c, and probably won’t arrive for another 10 days or so at the earliest!

Sorry you have had another chemical Simba :(

What did your GP say emmbop?

@simbacom Great idea! Put me down for the 28th doubt I will be able to wait until AF is due though 😂 

TTC #1 cycle 3 

After a few days being mopey I am so pumped for this cycle as we will be on holiday the whole week around O. 
 

Fingers crossed for lots of October BFP’s!

Well I am in my TWW after consistent and confusing OPKs! AF is due on the 10th according to my app - which is usually pretty accurate.  I think I'll work on distracting myself over the next 2 weeks and not read into every little twinge etc. I say that now but can almost guarantee I'll be doing the opposite haha.

How is everyone feeling now that a new month is almost here? I was super optimistic after AF finished but that has slowly been fading.

I totally relate. I go through the same thing every month. I'm not going to stress and Google everything this month.....a few days later.....My left arm is cold I wonder if that's a pregnancy symptom lol Google 🤦‍♀️

@Zel lala do you know if your hubby is on board with trying this month yet?

Got my blood test result yesterday.. bloods were on Thursday and then following Monday and they went from 16 to 14 (I'm 7 weeks post-mc)... So GP said he's ok with that and no further action required. It's so frustrating though. I'm glad I'm not having to get a D&C or something so far, but my body is draaaagging on getting back to normal post-mc. I've had the faint positives for probably 2 weeks now so I feel like it's just stayed around those numbers. I wouldn't mind if it's low enough that I'm ovulating again, but I'm on CD36 and I usually have 30 day cycles, so it's definitely still messing with my cycle. So yeah, no idea when I'll be testing next!

I get the over-analysing of everything in the TWW.. I’m feeling a little nauseous today but I’m only 5dpo so can’t possibly be related. And I know when I fell pregnant with my daughter I had zero symptoms until 7 weeks. But you still question everything!

How frustrating! will you get another blood test? Hopefully AF arrives for you soon and you can start a fresh cycle! 
I keep meaning to do a test now it has been 3 weeks since the D&c. I can’t imagine there is anything left though as I had a follow up ultrasound

Yep I'm a terrible symptom spotter. Although I was pretty well distracted with my sister's elopement weekend before last so that helped me get through to about 8dpo before I started getting crazy. 

We're planning on going again this month but if we fall pregnant and I have another chemical, I think we will just pause and start fresh in the new year once I'm back at work and my DD is BFing less often as a result. She is a total boob monster so still feeds heaps even though she's over 12 months now and that may be affecting my progesterone levels and therefore LF and the chemicals...

Sigh. Tested with an IC again this morning, no line. Yesterday’s must have been a dud test. Still - 11dpo and normally I’d have spotting today and AF tomorrow. Nothing so far (though Murphy’s Law it will happen 2 milliseconds after I post this)...

Boo. If it helps at all, with both my chemicals I had clear lines on FRERs at 11-12dpo (not as strong as the test line, but maybe about 30% as strong so very much visible) and barely barely barely perceptible lines on my ICs when I was checking on both. Like if I didn't know that there should definitely be something there, I wouldn't be able to find it. So it can definitely take a bit longer for the ICs to show up 🤞 fingers crossed for you!

GP hasn't requested one, but if I keep seeing the faint line in a week I think I'll investigate further because it just seems weird that it's hovering around these low numbers for weeks. Or maybe it's not, I don't know! haha. Yep, really hoping AF shows up now to start fresh.

I feel like we're all having such bad luck lately - we need some BFPs!

Thanks simbacom, that is actually helpful. I just don’t want to waste another frer (did one yesterday after the faint line on the IC). So disappointing when it’s stark white!

still no signs of AF over here. If no signs tomorrow I may break out a frer.
