TTC'ing Now - Ongoing Thread

New thread time
This group is for members who are TTC’ing now, not next month or next year but now and has been set up for TTC chat and support.
I have set it up after some feedback from members and other Moderators.
Rules for this Group
The reason that these rules are in place is because often the groups that start become very close knit and eventually new members don't feel comfortable to join, especially when many members have had their BFP's. So this thread
is to be an ongoing one with members leaving as they get BFP's and joining as they start their TTC journey.
1. This is an ongoing group. New members are free and welcome to join at any time and members will change as some leave with BFP's and others join to start their journey.
2. If you get your BFP please move on to your appropriate DIG this thread will strictly be for those TTC’ing once that happens then you need to move on. You may announce your BFP but anything beyond that will not be permitted and I will remove posts without warning (this sounds harsh but it necessary to ensure that this remains as it is intended).
3. No other groups (ie Buddy Groups) will be set up from this area. Once you graduate from this area then the Due In Groups is the place to go.
I will set up a new thread when the post count reaches 100 posts and will keep a close eye on the thread to see that the rules are followed.
As I said this is a trial to start with but I can put it in to permanency if everyone likes it and uses it for the reason it is here.
If you have any comments or suggestions please feel free to pm me rather than posting in this thread – keep it just for TTC’ing chat.
All the best ladies and I hope that each of you have short stays here and that you get to move to the Due In Groups very quickly.
Baby Dust to you all.

SILVER for me
mommymoo - no i won't be testing until wednesday. Thats only because i have only 1 test and the nearest shop is an hour away. Plus the fact i am terrified of getting another BFN and want to wait for AF to arrive instead.

Good Morning ladies,
HAPPY MOTHER's DAY to all of you !!! I hope you have a wonderful day and get spoiled rotten.
I got a WII and a WII fit for mother's day (off my beautiful fur baby) hahaha although I can't get the boys off it (DH, my cousin & my nephew)
AF found her way to me this morning !!! Although I am not surprised and strangely I am ok with it this month (as long as next months she stays away !!!0
Waiting for Bree, Tash & goinground again to test next will be in to check up
Eviesmum - good luck with the uninterrupted lunch (kids play areas are great - can't wait to use them)
Posted 11 May 2008 - 10:53 AM
huddybear - sorry AF arrived
Eviesmum - have a good lunch.
Well we aren't doing anything today. DH rolled his ankle and has a suspected broken finger, from footy yesterday so he is sitting on his bum with his leg in the air. So lucky me has just finished making breaky for everyone and i have a dirty kitchen waiting for me.
On the plus side DS made me a long stemmed flower at school and it was lying next to my pillow when i woke up this morning. It has a ferrero roche (sp?) centre.

Loveanother - just reading previous thread and this new one, no time to do normal post (will come back in the morning and do all my personals!) just wanted to say about the SA test....cloudy liquid is perfectly normal!
TMI........and what it feels like when you BD is heaps...but when you look at it in the little jar you think "surely that can't be it???" but it is! I remember thinking that when I looked at the jar...but then my DH's volume was right smack in the middle of normal so don't worry about that!
Gotta go....write more tomorrow.
Posted 11 May 2008 - 06:15 PM

Woo Hoo Tasha Congratulations have a lovely safe and uneventful 8 months
Lunch was lovely and I got a ridiculously expensive dressinggown and PJs and a gorgeous necklace my DS made for me. So spoilt.
Just wondering what people think. I got a neg OPK today but a bit darker than yesterday. We BD last night and I was thinking of skipping tonight and BD again tomorrow night I saw that on the sperm meets egg plan that they reccomend you BD every 2nd day til a positive OPK. As my positive could still be 3 or 4 days away I thought it better than depleting DH's supply.
What are your thoughts?
Posted 11 May 2008 - 07:54 PM
Eviesmum Hey, glad to hear you got spoilt rotten today!! I too had a FAB day and just finished eating a roast lamb that Hubby cooked for us.
RE- Sperm supply I asked my GP about depleting supplies if you BD everday and she said "No, as long as its no more than once day, (sperm useless basically after one ejac a day) its fine to BD everyday" If you are up to it.
I prefer every other day so we dont get bored
Her way of thinking was even if you only get 100,000 (compared to millions if a huge build up??) in there every day its better than none!! (makin up those numbers ) But I think you get the idea?
Posted 11 May 2008 - 09:24 PM
Tasha - that is bloody fantastic news !!! About time we got the BFP's going again! YAY!!!!
As you can tell, i have made it through a weekend in sydney. Spent today at the movies with my older kids, then picked up the younger ones and had a picnic in the park - was so nice.
Well i couldnt keep my big mouth shut - my SIL now knows her brother and I are now TTC. She has been trying for about 12 months and she asked some advice. Well she put 2+2 together when i started talking cause i had learnt so much from you guys....ah well, had to come out sooner or later. Would of prefered the later though.
Me - I'm 9DPO and (.)(.) are still sore, temps are still high, bloated, heart burn etc....had none of these symptoms before, so not sure if its good or my body tricking.
Would love someone to look at my chart and tell me if its good? PLEEEEEASE!
Will come back in the morning to read on everything else i missed - again, congrats Tasha!
Come on Goingaround on Wednesday!
Posted 11 May 2008 - 11:30 PM
Lorri - Your chart looks good to me but I am no chart expert but all this damn study is starting to rub off (huge maternity assignment is doind my head in!!!) that Tasha has started a huge BFP avalanche!!! Do you think you can hold off testing till Wednesday?? Or will you test early?? I'll be watching!!
BBL - These assignments are doing my head in - AAARRRGGGHHH!!! I am sooooooo over it!!! At least I have prac in a week, can't wait to get back into it!!!
Talk soon, unless this huge pile of books here fall and crush me to daeth!!! (They are pretty heavy!!!)
Me - 30
DH - 31
DD - Chloe Elizabeth - 4 (8/11/03)
DS - Reilly William Annan - 2 (1/8/05)
TTC#3 - NOW!!!
Posted 12 May 2008 - 07:38 AM
Morning Ladies I am feeling tragic. think i migh have a kidney infection my back aches and peeing is different to usual. Am suppose to be at work but called in sick. I am so over this placement and i think the stress is catching up with me.
Lorri Chart looks fantastic your on such a shirt cycle thougg does that affect ttc. i O on day 13 this month and that means with my usual 12 day LP i will be getting AF on the 22ndd which is the day before DF bday Better be a BFP... when you testing?
chloesmum i understand the whole assignment stuff. i woudl love to say just pull your head in but i am having a mental health day today as i think i am loosing the plot with assignments, placement and 3 kids
loveanother were trying to withstain from BD every day to see if it helps. trying the SMEG thing
Morning others will bbl to chat to you hope all is well and testers lots of luck to you
Me as i said i am off physically and mentally at the moment. life is catching up with me. Quick question though with SMEG says to
"Try" every other night starting Day 8
Buy 10 ovulation predictor kit sticks
Begin ovulation testing on Day 10
When test is positive, "try" that night, plus two additional nights in a row
Skip one night, then do one last "try"
well i did the try every night starting day 6 (got impatient)
did the OPK and got a positive on 13LMP at 11pm and DF was asleep so didnt BD that night
Did BD lunch time the next day
and last night
Do you think that matters i missed the MAIN day? Were trying so hard this month to be good... i hope i didnt stuff up by letting him sleep
edited got another question: why is it FF says to BD like crazy before O and SMEG says to do it after O? isnt it too late after???
OK am off- need a rest before dealing with kids- I NEED A HUG

MOMMYMOO - hope you feel a lil better soon hun.
TASHA - I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing 8 (or so) months!
LORRI - I don't know much about charts - but i hope yours ends in a BFP this month
CHLOESMUM - I know what you mean about assignments, I have one due today and another tomorrow
Good Morning to EVERYONE ELSE - I'll be back later to see how you are all going
ME - I'm at CD 27 and i have myself down for testing tomorrow.
I dont know if I'm gonna bother or not coz I'm sure I can feel AF on her mean and nasty way. I don't know for sure when I'm due this month, my cycles are usually about 28 - 30 days but last month it was only 26 TTC is doing weird things to my body lol.
Posted 12 May 2008 - 08:35 AM
mommymoo - can you add me for testing on 22nd May.
We've tried the every other day bit. CD 11/13/15/17. Its actually been much more enjoyable than DTD every day for a few peak days.
I'm always so happy to see a BFP! Gives us all hope!!!! CONGRATS TASHA!!!!
chloesmum - I totally agree - I'm wishing for a BFP avanlanche too!!!!
Good luck to all the Assignment writers!!! Do you find it a good distraction when in the 2WW or it justs adds to the stress?? I have found that doing 2 peoples jobs at work has been a wonderful way to distract me from TTC! Although I feel a bit stressed generally.
Right - I'm half asleep - I got in at 7.45 this morning which is way too early for me!! and I am trying to persuade myself that yes I do want to go for a run at Lunchtime... ahhhhh need to exercise.

Goingaroundagain I see you there at the bottom of the page do you have news for us??
Posted 12 May 2008 - 10:02 AM
Glad you had good mother's days yesterday!
Congrats Tasha! Great news and fantastic Mother's Day pressie to yourself!
I think I'm getting a cold or something, my head hurts, my body hurts, my throat hurts and I feel really I might go home early today I think! Feel very sorry for myself. Am also glad we weren't going to try much this month as FF puts me as O-ing on CD8! And definately no BD happened.....I think it could be wrong though as getting sick might have sent my temps in the wrong direction!
Hello to everybody, sorry for no personals!
