    BFN
    It’s ok tho! First month trying and all, I have pcos so I’m aware it will probably take longer, I’m honestly ok about it and upbeat still. I went to the gym this morning too so I’m going to make a few changes over the next few weeks ☺️

    @Frankinstein12 sorry for the BFN but glad you're feeling so positive! On to cycle 2!

    Not much had changed for me, getting some faint OPKs but nothing dark yet, CD12 I believe, I didn't used to ovulate until around CD15-16 so not surprised I'm not seeing anything yet.

    Anyone else check Cervix position? I used to when TTC my son and it was the only thing that made me think I may get my BFP the month I did so thought I'd try and get back into that, it's currently high and soft which is a good sign, hopefully gearing up for Ovulation, we'll see!

    @Frankinstein12, Sorry about the BFN.

    @Babylove2023, I can’t check mine, I have a very high and retroverted cervix. Good luck!

    As for me, I’m now 8DPO and haven’t bought any pregnancy tests. I feel so relaxed knowing they’re not there to POAS and cause frustration. Mentally (and financially) I’m a lot better off.

    I have made a decision (about a week or so ago) that we will do medicated cycles in the future, with Clomid, Letrozole and Trigger shots.
    For those that don’t know, Round One was Clomid (50mg) CD3-7 in October which led to a BFN and Round Two in November we did Clomid (100mg) also CD3-7 & trigger shot and fell pregnant with a sticky baby. Unfortunately the pregnancy was ectopic and we had to end the pregnancy 30th December 2021 via Methotrexate. This is also why we were not allowed to TTC for 3 months after.

    I am excited about the medicated cycles, the Lord knows that after 3 ½ years, 44 cycles I am ready for my rainbow. <3

    @RainbowMama, You definitely are ready and deserving! I really hope this will help you get your sticky rainbow! Fingers firmly crossed!

    Think I'm CD13, getting lots of good signs of impending ovulation, high soft cervix, CM increasing but no positive or near positive OPK yet but I never used to ovulate until around CD16-17 when TTC my son so maybe It's too early for OPKs.

    Although I don't think we'll be in with much chance this cycle anyway as struggling to DTD as much as we'd like - my OH has been referred to a specialist and is on a waiting list as he has (sorry if TMI) an issue with his foreskin, occasionally it can be very tight which can sometimes make sex quite uncomfortable for him which as you can imagine is getting us both down atm. We are managing to DTD just not as much as we'd like to give us the best chance.

    Feeling a little nauseous today, anybody else ever get that around ovulation? I'm sure I used to get it when previously TTC.

    I was hoping so! But things have changed for me, I've had some bleeding today, only a small amount but I feel very 'AF'y so maybe I'm not going to ovulate straight away or I have and I've missed it? No idea but feel like AF is coming.. feeling surprisingly ok, if that's the case at least Its come back quickly and I can start a fresh and track this cycle properly.

    Just annoyed that I'll have to spend my weekend away with stupid AF

    @Babylove2023 - Thank you so much! <3 Woo hoo for impending ovulation and I hope your partner gets sorted, that sounds painful as heck!

    9DPO today, my last chance to have a 2022 baby is closing. AF is just days away. Ugh - I hate this journey. 3 and a half years, and for what? Nothing but BFN's, 2 miscarriages and 1 ectopic.

    Thank you @RainbowMama!

    I've had no more bleeding and what seems like some EWCM today, still negative OPKs but the lines are definitely slowly getting darker...I think... So maybe somethings happening but could just be wishful thinking..

    Fingers crossed for that miracle BFP for you ❤️ TTC can be such a hard journey and it's so hard to not let it bring you down, I can't imagine how you feel after 3 years. Wishing it happens for you as soon as possible Xxx

    The witch arrived yesterday, I was relied in one way as I knew then I could actually stop obsessively peeing on a stick haha but obviously disappointed, however, let’s rock n roll for this cycle :)

    I have pcos so I’ll probably be at the end of my tww in may, I ovulate around week 3 or so, so see you soon :)

    @Frankinstein12 Shame about AF! I completely understand the relief sometimes youre just glad to know either way! Here's to the next cycle
    Look forward to hearing from you

    I'm off on my little spa weekend today so going to try and just relax and not obsess about it all... Easier said then done!

    Have a lovely weekend ladies xxx

    Thank you @Babylove2023 <3
    EWCM & OPK’s that are getting darker are are all really good signs, fingers crossed you ovulate soon! Enjoy the spa weekend, wish I could come too!

    I already know I’m out this cycle & that’s okay. I’ve learned to appreciate my life and not get too fixated on this TTC Lark. I am more than my TTC journey and a negative pregnancy test (not that I’ve done one!) does not define me. <3

    I’ve updated you on Page one @Frankinstein12. I understand the relief that comes when AF arrives.

    I’ve had no other updates from the other ladies but I will update if and when they let us know how they’re getting on.

    @RainbowMama I love your attitude, it's the best way to look at it and I am trying so hard this time with baby 2 that I do not obsess.. you really have to force yourself not too.

    I have positive news, I had a positive opk this morning! And today a tonne of EWCM. Suddenly out of no where my body has kicked into action.. I hope!! Although we haven't done the deed all week, we will tonight, just hope it's not too late and I haven't ovulated already! But either way I'm just so glad to be seeing these positive signs that my body is doing its job! I'm proud of my body today :).

    I would post opk pic but it always says the files too big!!

    Thank you! I never used to be this relaxed, I was obsessive, miserable, TTC was on my mind morning, afternoon and night and I never thought of anything unrelated to TTC. It’s so unhealthy to be in that mindset but when you want something so bad, it really is all you think about, even down to your eating habits!

    I’ve stayed much happier, calmer and felt amazing this cycle.

    Yay for ovulation, get lots of baby dancing in. I would say celebrate but you’re already on your little holiday. Have a lovely time, and I hope the two week wait flies by for you.

    10DPO, I did cave (finally).

    Of course it's a :bfn: and that's okay, I expected that. I can now plan for my next cycle (for real) and hopefully Clomid get's here before CD3. <3

    Thank you @RainbowMama !!

    Sorry about the BFN, fingers crossed your next medicated cycle will you give you a better chance!

    So today according to my app is ovulation day we DTD last night and This morning (which is good considering OH issue!) so I'm hoping if I do actually ovulate weve given ourselves a good chance! Just a waiting game now.

    @Babylove2023 Hope you’re enjoying your spa weekend and glad to hear your ovulating!

    @RainbowMama Sorry about your BFN but fingers crossed your clomid arrives soon.

    My everlasting af finally finished properly yesterday so have started doing OPTs and we’ll start dtd, although I have no idea whether I’ll ovulate as normal, but I guess we’ll see! I’m booking a blood test for the week after next to see, but I fear this month is out. Can’t hurt to try though!

    Enjoy your Sunday everyone!
