    Mortgage: I think it's the first day of a flow you count as CD1 so I wouldn't say AF has started yet.

    Well in that case plop me in the Two Week Wait queue and I'll sit tight!

    A nice shiny new thread, thanks Lulu :D Please could my age be updated in the front page to 32 as well please ty :cool:

    Thanks for doing the lists Kellykins. Please could I guess 5 BFPs for January, surely we should get more this month?! Please could I also be updated to CD5? Thank you.

    Massive congratulations Keza and welcome to the newbies :)

    So it's been a bit of a rubbish start to the New Year for me, as not only did I have to contend with my first AF post miscarriage, when I hoped beyond all hope that we had DTD enough, but yesterday we very unexpectedly had to have one of our cats put to sleep :( My other cat is not very well either, and combined with my recent miscarriage I just feel someone out there has got it in for me :cool:

    Oh snapping I really feel for you, you're having a rubbish time :( hopefully things turn better now!

  • *hugs* for Lulu, snapping and anyone else who needs them right now!

    Welcome to everyone and CONGRATS to Keza :-D some happy news for me on a Monday morning.

    AF is a fickle witch at times, she was virtually nonexistent and barely 3 days this time around (WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.... seriously, normally I have niagra falls for a week...) but at least that puts me in BD-ing zone....
    or it would...
    if Mr P and I weren't both ill....
    again...
    I'm not even joking here.

    We ARE both on the mend though, and I had a BIT of a go at him last month about the fact he's ALWAYS ill when I'm OV (which I know, was irrational, he can't help the fact he has a lousy immune system... I fear for any offspring we might be lucky enough to have, they'll catch every bug going) so hopefully this month should be better :-) after all 2015 IS OUR YEAR :-D

    Now everyone... I've heard you don't really get what you want unless you properly visualise it... so come on everyone, lets visualise ourselves some nice swollen ankles.... mmmmmm.... (fyi, I'm joking here, nothing about swollen ankles seems appealing, I think you get that, but my soh can come across as a little weird in text form...)

    Thank you Lulu :o

    No worries, that's what we're here for :) My dog suddenly passed away in September and it's been tougher than I thought it would be so I truly empathise with you. I hope you, OH, and kitty #2 are okay.

    I've started my 2015 baby-making plan now. I've started taking my folic acid again, and I've bought Vitamin D and a Vitamin B Complex (which should also help my fatigue). I'm also happily on my new diet and currently enjoying a nice cup of peppermint tea instead of going to the vending machine for a diet coke and a chocolate bar. Seriously motivated to shift this weight now!

    Welcome to the newbies! Sorry I didn't welcome yesterday but was in serious sad times due to AF and needed to feel sorry for myself!

    Hope everyone is okay :D:D

    Hi ladies, de-lurking from the other thread.

    Wishing you all a very happy new year and I hope 2015 brings you everything you want but mainly your forever baby.

    I've been contemplating posting this for a while but wasn't sure I should so please take this as only a little bit of info in the bigger picture that is your TTC journey.

    Some of you may remember me - we've been TTC #1 since Nov 12 so we've got a bit of experience behind our belts with 3 MC's in the last 12 months and am now 7 +1 with an early scan tomorrow at the EPU. Have used CBFM, OPK's, temping, charting, etc - you name it, I've used it!

    Was recently reviewing my charts and have noticed a bit of a trend. We were DTD in the days running up to OV but finding we'd run out of steam by OV day so despite thinking we've done everything we can to make it happen, we might have missed the mark by a day or two.

    Generally, my cycle has been fairly "normal" with a 27-31 day cycle and OV around CD13-CD18 as identified by the OPK's/CBFM.

    BUT the bit I've found interesting is the 3 months where we have conceived, were the months where we DTD in the run up and for 2-3 consecutive days after OV.

    Now I'm not saying this is going to work for all of you but please have a look at your cycles ladies and see if you can find a similar theme.

    Wishing you all lots of love and luck.

    what's that you say Gelly? BD? BD LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE ALL THE TIME.... oh, well if you insist ;-)

    All joking aside (I'm in a seriously weird mood today) thank you for the super advice :-) I hope your little one is super healthy and that everything goes smoothly (I've been stalking the thread for YEARS).

    Yes! As advised by sperm meets egg plan. I only have my own experience of doing smep once and it worked for us! I think the use of opks was the key to helping us know when to bd 3 days in a row. Good luck ladies xx
