Hi Ladies

Well I ask if I can join in and then forget to post again!  laughing2.gif   rolleyes.gif

cluckyducky - How long is your LP usually?

ceri - Congrats!  biggrin.gif

Carolyn - Depends what you feel comfortable with really (re testing) some women are compulsive at POAS from 9 or 10 DPO  blush.gif   Its probably best to wait to test until AF is due cause that way you wouldnt get a false negative.

Lily - Any BDing happen at all?  We were sick here too last cycle so only one BD which worked but was a chemical pregnancy, oh well there's always this cycle.

Which reminds me I did an OPK earlier and forgot to check it!  Its terribly early but think I might O early this cycle.

Thanks for your advice, cathy & autumn. I tested yesterday and  BFN.gif  Nevermind... I'll give it couple of days (maybe!   blush.gif  )

I'm sure it's something you all feel, but I just want to know either way. Obvious, I know! That's at the heart of ttc, I guess.  wacko.gif

Good luck with the O, autumn!

Can I ask what a chemical pregnancy is? I haven't heard of that before... ph34r.gif

Good luck with the wait Autumn. Waiting is the pits. Specially when we're so used to having everything we want instantaneously!

Carolyn, there's always hope! And if not, next month biggrin.gif

Carolyn - Your chart is still looking good so guess we'll see what tomorrows temp does  original.gif

Lily - Basically you get positive HPTs and then AF shows up a few days late, an egg is fertilised but it doesnt implant properly  sad.gif

Was wrong re my OPKs by the way...O is way off LOL

Feeling a bit unwell today. Unfortunately DP has a raging cold so think I'm coming down with his lurgy.  sad.gif

There's no sign of AF except for all the ususal aches and pains. I wish she'd just hurry up. I tested twice on the weekend, but nothing. If no AF by the end of the week, I'll test on the FF recommendated date (only just worked out what the countdown was on my FF chart!).

Sorry to hear it was a dud cycle cluckyducky.  sad.gif

Hello everyone,

Well I have been a bit slow to follow up on my initial post, better late than never!  original.gif

It looks like the flu going round has caused havoc with a lot of TTCing!  I'm just getting over it.  My attempt at charting this month has gone out the window since my temperatures were so high and its still the first half of the cycle.  Things are going a bit haywire with my cycles, they are usually 26 days but the last 2 cycles they were 23 days. Not sure if I'm O'ing or not now, anyway not going to worry too much about it.

Lily, thanks very much for your welcome, I will have a look at those Billings websites  grin.gif

Good luck to everyone, hope that August brings us some more BFPs! : biggrin.gif :

Sky: Sorry to hear your cycles are a bit haywire!

I've finally got an answer: AF came today.  glare.gif  I think I buggered up the start of my cycle so it probably wasn't much longer than ususal.

I'm glad I've joined this little group. It helps to be somewhere where people are in the same situation! I think I'll keep an diary. It's not like many people in real-life-land really want to hear it all.

There's always next month! Good luck everyone: here's to August!

We have been ttc for 18 months and each month I have also had every imaginable sympton of pregnancy before AF arrives. I have never used one of these sites before and it is good to see I am not the only person who feels they are going crazy each month. I am 41 in October and was told by a fertility clinic yesterday that my scan and blood tests indicate my body is keeping up with my age, not older nor younger. Do I put myself through the expense of IVf or keep trying? We have a DD nearly 4. I am the product of a 42y.o mother and 47 y.o father, I guess that is why I have been so complacent about my second child.
