    Just a quick post before I get back to work - sorry if I miss anyone.

    Littleduck, I hope you get some certainty soon! A warm bath sounds like a good idea.

    MrsErinR, I'm so glad you get to put Frosty back soon . The waiting is awful, isn't it. I'm waiting with you.

    Emmajane, any news?

    NAT, thank you for checking in on us and I hope the twins aren't making your hair stand on end too often. You're my model - hopefully I'll be UTD from IVF like you soon!

    Happymummy, what are you trying this month? EPO did seem to help me ovulate more strongly, so I hope it works for you.

    AFM, I've got my endo biopsy next Tue, then wait for AF, then starting IVF again. So it might be as soon as next weekend!

    Well it was a BFN blood test on Wednesday, but they still always do another test two days later, but there is little hope as the first blood test was at 11dpo so it really have shown by then. I have made an appointment for my partner and I to see my FS in December to look at IVF. My partner isn't keen on going the IVF route but I will try anything as we hit the year mark this cycle. Looks like most of us are going to be trying again for October, so hopefully this will be the month for all of us

    Sorry to hear about your test EmJ....let us know how the next one goes.
    AFM, today is CD1 for me....even though it means we move on to October, I was quite please to see AF as I was worrying that it meant something sinister (no AF but not utd means......???) - also quite pleased with a 14 day lp. I've got grapefruit juice on my shopping list for tonight (I've heard it helps with ewcm - any ladies have any other tips?), also champagne (even though it sounds odd "celebrating" a BFN, I wouldn't be doing that with a BFP, so I thought I may as well take advantage!!

    Sorry to hear it was a BFN for you too Little Duck but looks like we will be very close in our cycle this month as I should get AF over the weekend sometime. I have champagne in the fridge so I might take your example and enjoy a glass or two with my partner tonight. Might as well take advantage of a bfn!

    I haven't tried grapefruit juice for ewcm (just EPO), please let me know how it goes for you as I very rarely get ewcm. I bought Maybe Baby lube today to see if that helps with getting the little spermies to where they need to be
    to all of us trying in October!!

    Sorry to hear about the BFN's ladies. As for ewcm, there is a lubricant called preseed that is supposed to be the best. I'm sure you will find it mentioned in threads here. Also, there is a cough mixture (robitussin maybe??) but you have to get the correct type. I'll see if I can find it for you. Having said this, I think if your ewcm is actually sufficient then it's best to let it do it's own thing without adding stuff!

    Found this little snippet ...

    What kind of Robitussin is used to improve cervical mucus?
    One should buy the plain kind with no letters after it. The only active ingredient is guaifenesin, and it contains 100 mg per teaspoon. It is very important to avoid the versions that contain decongestants as those may dry up cervical mucus. Also, there is some conflicting information about whether dextromethorphan, the DM in some cough medicine names, may be linked to birth defects such as neural tube defects and cleft palate

    Yeah, so don't buy the cough medicine with 'DM' in the name!

    We're transferring our first frostie in October. Still about 5 weeks away as I am just O'ing now for this month. Fingers crossed for another natural BFP before we use the frostie but sadly, pretty unlikely for us I think.

    Hope the next 5 weeks fly by for you MrsE!

    EmmaJ - I rarely (no scratch that - never) get ewcm either. Or at least none that I can see, and I've also been checking cervical position so you would think that if there's any there I would catch it. I've found it pretty depressing as I know I used to get it......

    MrsE I bought some Preseed used a little last cycle....only a little though and not every time we bd'd. It has a lovely feel though, not like other lubricants - feels really natural Bought it from lullaby conceptions online. Will use it this cycle!
