TTC April 2016 Lock Rss

Hi everyone, sorry to hear about some tough experiences out there. What does BFP stand for exactly? Goggling pregnancy forum acronyms and this one wasn't on the list haha.

A little about me....I am mum to a 2.5 year old to a previous relationship. My partner and I are now engaged and are going to start trying after moving next week. With the timing of everything it likely won't be till early May till I can test when AF due on the 7th of May. Happy to follow those who are already actively trying though.

Question - thoughts on clear blue ovulation tests? Do people use them? What do you think?

Thanks, Rach.
Welcome smile

BFP stands for - Big fat positive

I don't use the clearblue tests so can't help there, I just use first response or cheap ones

Hi R2x. I recently started using the clear blue OPKs. I did one cycle where they were negative throughout but had blood test that proved I ovulated (so the OPK didn't work) and I've had one cycle where they gave me a positive on the day I'd have expected from EWCM. I'll be doing them again this cycle but only because I still have 4 sticks left in the pack from last time. Next cycle I'm doing cycle tracking through a fertility specialist anyway so won't bother.

My thoughts are they're pretty expensive if you can tell when you ovulate without them so no point for me to continue but they were good to confirm that when I thought was the right days were actually the right days iykwim. Also if you BD regularly throughout your cycle then you're going to cover the fertile days regardless of if you use them.

Hope that helps.
Hopping over from the March thread.

As expected nasty old AF arrived this morning. At least my cycle is regular this time lol. If I get my BFP this cycle I'll be due between Xmas and NYE! A scary thought!!

Hi,

Has anyone used Maybe Baby to work out ovulation?

Thanks
I use fertility friend ap. smile
Has anyone taken evening primrose oil to increase cervical mucus and ended up not getting any increase AND delayed ovulation! Feeling a bit stressed at moment cd 15 and I normally ov cd14 Cd15. Cm has been creamy all cycle no sign of impending O....temp shot up this morning but still no change in cm...thinking/hoping I haven't O yet?
Hi. Just joining this board, AF turned up today after having me fooled thinking I was pg because my temperatures were really high and matched my pregnancy temps back in October but it wasnt meant to be sad A few us are all due AF around the same time ( or hopefully not) so good luck to everyone.

Hi girls,

thought id jump in and join. I've been trying to conceive recently, was two weeks late, was quite excited but nothing came of.

I have a history of endometriosis, adenomyosis and PCOS, cycles have usually been on time but of course but body has decided to do whatever it wants the past two months. Not to mention hubby is on medication that reduces sperm count ????..but its ok..going to be a okayyy!!

Specialist has me starting on Clomid tomorrow, bit nervous. Anyone else tried a cycle of clomid?

Looking forward to sharing the journey with you all and getting to know you all.

Sending you all positive vibes and baby dust xxx

btw what does TWB mean??
Hi Ladies. Popping on over from March. Desperately trying to stay positive - I really am. AF today.

Onto cycle #6 with no luck. TBH feeling really over it all and then frustrated that I know that feeling won't help at all.
Just updating the list smile
