Thanks everyone, it is stressful with the amount hubby works away but as much as I’m probably setting myself up for a fall I am feeling super positive about this month. I’m going to try the SMEP method starting from next week when I’ll be CD8. You should have seen hubbys face when I told him last night, like all his xmas’s have come at once
OMRum definitely sneak a glass of wine or 2, I am definitely on the drink till its pink bus, ttc is stressful enough I actually think a wine helps you relax so can help ttc and remember baby doesn’t share a blood supply for 6 wks so as long as in moderation you’re okay. With my first baby we had drunk heavily on a couple of occasions before I got my BFP (we had only been trying 1 mth so really didn’t expect it) Course I stopped soon as I found out & shes absolutely fine.
Tallie I’d definitely interpret your OPK as a positive, happy bd’ing!!
Mrspb sorry about your BFN, I got a disappointing BFN before our wedding (we hadn’t been actively trying) but in hindsight I’m so glad I was able to enjoy my wedding and honeymoon carefree with a few cocktails! I actually then successfully conceived 2 wks after our honeymoon! Hope AF arrives soon for you.
Sammykate you are very lucky to have such regular cycles so soon. I’m 6 months in and last cycle was 31 days but one before was 36 days!! It definitely puts you in an easier position to conceive.
Dandelion your symptoms could be implantion maybe you OV’d earlier than you think?
MrsMin fingers crossed for this month! Just been reading about the SMEP and maybe we'll give it a go, why not- it seems to make sense. Need to get myself some OPKs.
Maybe I am speaking too soon about having a regular cycle and setting myself up for a fall! Came off the pill and had an AF (possibly a withdrawal one not a proper one?) after 2 weeks, then 25 days and AF, and now another 25 days and AF. My body could just been teasing me and the next one will be all over the place...
Sorry AF has arrived already MrsPope I hope your blood tests start to give you some answers.
Sorry you've been struggling Tallie, I hope you manage to get a quick appointment with your GP and so can start the ball rolling.
I hope your AF hasn't been too painful this month OmRum and that you enjoyed your weekend of wine and Chinese!
Happy to hear your cycles are regular already SammyKate, I know some people who have taken up to a year so it's definitely sounding positive for you!
I am chugging away this month, not actively trying so thought I wouldn't symptom spot at all but I JUST CANNOT HELP MYSELF! Expecting AF probably end of next week so way too early for symptoms anyway.
Hope everyone has a lovely week
Dandelion remind me what DPO you are? Tiredness is defo a symptom so I'm not surprised you're symptom spotting! I really hope it does mean something for you.
Just had a baby bomb - friend who got pregnant on her wedding night, not taken her pill for a couple of days and BAM pregnant!
HOW is it soooo easy for some people?
