    I'm going to be doing the same as you. AF is due on the 28th August, so I will be testing on the 26th with First Response. I bought a twinpack last month because I thought I was on a 28 day cycle, so tested on day 24, but was a BFN, then turns out I calculated completely wrong, and it is actually 32 days. Although I only had my coil removed a few weeks ago so I can be excused. :wink:
    Good luck to you, let me know and I will do the same. Let's hope for BFP's on the Bank Holiday weekend! :D :D

    Af is due to visit next Wednesday (24th) so I am wishing the next week away to see what may come. I'm not feeling any different to any other month this month - yet but it's gotta happen some time right?? Hope we're all celebrating next week!!

    My AF is due 27th August, so I think I might be tempted to do a test on that day (if I can wait that long). I was so disappointed last month when I got a BFN the day before my AF was due :cry: Lots of luck to everyone else who is TTC this month - lets hope there is lots of good news to share soon.

    I'm keeping everything crossed. Not just because I will be over the moon to have a BFP at any time, but because the timing would be perfect. I don't know if any of you have worked it out, but if we do get BFP this month, we will be due Mid May. This means for me that I will be able to finish early May, take 7 months maternity, (only one of these will therefore be unpaid), then the full years entitlement to holiday in December. So not back work till 2007!!!! Wayhey!!! :D :D

    Rach, have you thought of getting a First Response test? With your cycle, you may be able to test in 5 days - 4 days before AF is due. And if you do get a BFN, you can test again in a couple more days. I know this is expensive, but hey.....

    I'm not due next AF for 11 days, but I'm testing in 9, you never know!!

    To be honest, it's already killing me to wait that long, so I don't think I can actually wait any longer than AF's due date!! Plus the fact, my other baby (well, she's 12!!) will be home that weekend. The poor love has been to her Dad's for the whole summer holiday, and she's hating it. It would be the best welcome home present if I could tell her I have a BFP.

    Spooky! Other kids both 12, and we're on the same day of our cycle!!!
    Have you any more little ones? If not, how do you think you'll cope with the big age difference. I must say that at my age (35), I am a little worried about how I'll cope with the night feeds again.

    yeah tis spooky lol im 32 i was only 19 when had first child and really found the first 3 months very hard i had a very long labour 37 hours he was back to back so they said thats why it took so long and found it difficult after to bond properly with my baby, i suppose it was because of the guilt feelings i had about not bonding with my son straight away i always said i wasnt good enough to be a mother and vowed never to have any more. all was fine after first couple of months and i realise now that it was post natal depression, all the same im terrified that the same might happen with another child. ive wanted another one for so long but always been too scared till now.
    as for the night feeds etc i think maybe being 32 i might find things a bit harder than i did 12 years ago but im sure it will all be worth it and with my son being 12 and pretty much self sufficient (not very good at spelling) i think the age gap between them will be good, heres hoping anyway :D

    I'm a bit older than you, 35, and I didn't have any problems after giving birth, but I did have a hellish labour!! 25.5 hours, not as long as yours, but it was long enough!! I'm hoping the next one will be easier, but as I'm older, I feel that even if it's not, I'll be stronger and able to cope with it easier. And I was a very niaive 22 year old! This time around, I'll be able to tell them what I want and what I don't want, instead of just going along with things to keep the peace.

    For some reason, I've woke up this morning with the definite feeling that his month is going to be a BFN. I know we all have our ups and downs, but today I feel that I know it won't be my month. I've been trying to feel really positive as this must help, but can't help it today. Am I on my own, or does anyone else get this??

    Just having a wierd experience... I've just walked through to another office to put a file back on a shelf, and when I was doing it, I went all light-headed and vertigo-like. Even now I'm back at my desk I'm still getting it. I feel quite faint and shaky. Now really confused. Don't know what to think. Could this be an early symptom? I do have quite low blood pressure, and with my 12 year old, I was fainting all the time. Now I think it may be a BFP next week. Or I could just be hungry!!! I HATE THIS NOT KNOWING!!!!!
