just an update from me my Maybe is a no as AF arrived today, i think because my ovulation was later then expected it pushed things back a week, the last 6 days have been the slowest of my life! I never knew having a late ovulation could push things back, so will keep that in mind next time so i don't get my hopes up like i did this week. Feeling pretty bummed but like we say a june bug is just as welcome. Need to also think of a cute July saying as well.
@Ppl question when to start, altho I'm getting married soon - in October- I've lived with my partner for 5 years and dated the previous 5 years.
@riversong/Dindelee I wasn't on the birth control pill so can't help with that altho i have read that some ppl recommend waiting a cycle of two to regulate your hormones. My sister was on BC and i believe after she stopped she was pregnant within 2 months.
@ riversong, i tracked my cycle about 4 months before we TTC just so i now when Af should arrive ect i then started charting my temps the month we began and used online calculators to predict which week we should be ovulating, i prob won't use the ovulation predictor tests for a while and just prescribe to every or every other day (which is actually harder to achieve then i thought)
I agree with Alzora that the first year living together whether married or not can be the hardest it took us two years of living together to get a balance. Some ppl may be quicker then us though…
We decided to start a family now because we are ready in all respects (financial, career, relationship, maturity) our relationship has never been stronger and we believe a baby will bring more love and joy into our home.
@Roseymaam, - I'm 29 but i know of ppl who have had children much later into their early forties- i believe it took a little longer then someone in their 20's but other then that I believe from what I've read that the hype about diminished fertility after age 30 is over blown, for example my fiancee mother was 45 when she had him! a little surprise too..
@frangipani dosnt it suck having a late period? All you want is an answer and your body is keeping mum… i can handle a TWW but a delayed period is much worse, all that hope and doubt… gah.. I'm not a patient person either so its very frustrating..
@nessielove so sorry to hear about your your loss,
@gijanie, thats some good info from your doctor, i recently have been reading about folic acid and the reason you need to take it before you start trying is because its used in the first 2 weeks after the embryo has been implanted (before you know your pregnant) so taking it 2 months prior to starting will help replenish your folic acid stores to optimal levels.
@sarahmezz where did you buy the cheapie tests from? in the last 6 days i spent $50 on tests!! can't do this every month…
@vec1013 that sounds promising, is the no ovulation a reason for the AF not arriving?? or is it just an additional symptom?
Good luck for the TWW people, i hope we have those Maybe's and June Bugs,
Well I'm officially in the boring period now- literally… so another two week wait until my next fertile window- altho i said id skip next cycle after this delayed period I've changed my mind!

So many things to respond to... but I've forgotten half of them while reading other posts lol!
@Vanessa, I hope the funeral did indeed bring a sense of closure. Praying for you and his family.
@Roseymaam, I'm 37... soon to be 38. I had my first munchkin last year and we're ttc for #2. It was definitely weird to walk into the ob/gyn's office and be told I was "old" because I definitely don't feel any older than I did 10 years ago -although there is that crick in my knee... We ttc'ed 2.5 years for munchkin #1 and did some fertility tests, but in the end, we didn't need to pursue treatments. Yeah! I'm hoping, as my DH has said, that baby #1 "opened the floodgates" so to speak and that getting pregnant the 2nd time will be much easier -but somehow I don't think it quite works like that. We'll see!
@Alzora, We need to be dancing the BD this weekend for sure. I'm still not counting days, using OPKs or tracking temperature though -it's too stressful to do that as well as caring for my little munchkin. If he decides to sleep through the night for more than one night at a time, I'll hopefully have more energy for other things like that! How about you? When's your fertile window? It must be coming up, no?Mommy to John Alexander & 3 furbabies; Maggie the dog, Rex & Bella the wannabe lions

Seems like a few of us are on the same cycle! Good luck to all in their TWW!
I'm 9DPO. I feel terrible. Fatigued, nauseated and my legs are aching. Hmm. This is our sixth month trying and in all other months I've never had any symptoms prior to AF apart from usual PMS symptoms (um, probably because I've never been pregnant). But right now? I'm not sure what to think. I'm sure it's too early to test so I'm going to hold out for a few days. Fingers crossed, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up because every pregnancy test I've ever taken has been negative and I don't want to be disappointed again!
UPDATE - Having chills now so wondering if it's just a badly timed virus? My husband thinks food poisoning!
UPDATE #2 - Spotting. Or, more accurately, spot. It's going to be a long few days!
@Betty - I got my internet cheapies from ktook76 (another Berry who lives nearby and mailed them to me). But I don't have heaps so I might have to get some more! If you hear of any good sites for ordering them, let me know!

Hey all. I'm headed out of town for a few days which will hopefully distract me from over-analyzing symptoms. :-) I wish all the best to those who are ovulating soon!
@Sarah - I hope you are feeling okay. Even if those are good signs, they sure don't sound pleasant.
@Betty - I don't know what it is like where you are, but in Canada and the US you can actually get pregnancy tests at the dollar store. Here they are usually with the maxi pads, but apparently in the US you have to ask for them at the cash. (I once read a hilarious blog post from a woman who was mortified when the cashier hollered across the store, "Hey So-and-So, do we have any PREGNANCY TESTS??!") I think you are in the UK, right? You could try the equivalent there (1£ store?) if convenient.
@vec1013 - I am so sorry you are having all this trouble. At least your doctor seems supportive. I hope you can get some answers soon.Estella ~ Helena ~ Miriam ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Ruby ~ Ivy ~ MarillaPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Martin ~ Edmund ~ Fraser ~ Alexander

@betty, I bought some OPKs plus the pregnacy tests from here:
Hope the link works! It was super quick delivery and the tests works fine!
@sarah, hoping your symptoms are from a bun in the oven! And not a virus :/TTC #1
