Thanks ladies. I really appreciate your support. Because I don't even talk to DH about this stuff it is amazing to have you all. Group hug. Fx for BFPs for all due to test.
Maybe I'm just due an Aussie Day baby, which as a foreigner (Irish) would be quite nice.
It's funny, as I was talking to DH about pain thresholds last night and we both agreed mine must be high - had my right index finger crushed in a collapsible wall at work, resulting in microsurgery to get it fixed up (all fine now) and I didn't swear or scream once. Same with my recovery from the cyst removal in November last year (didn't even take the painkillers prescribed!).
Hopefully this won't mean that childbirth will test me by saving it all up for that pne moment!
Shrillian described (thank goodness)! It's not even the bleeding that's bothering me, it's the insane cramping. It's like my uterus is being squeezed out like an almost empty tube of toothpaste. Took me ages to get to sleep after work yesterday and then only managed 4 hours (after panadeine/nurofen and a heat pack tucked inside my pj pants lol -
It was a stylish look). I'm not really surprised though. We only bd once in the "O" zone and we were told not to try because of the herbs the acu has put me on. So even though I'm down for May I'm technically not supposed to be trying then either. Might have another whoopsie and see how we go haha.
But yeah, silver linings!
Don't go to hard too fast tho! I only had a couple of wines with dinner out with friends on Fri night and had a terrible headache yesterday. I certainly didn't miss that aspect!
Going to family Christening today and there'll be lots of bubbly.....I am not going to say no any time anyone offers top me up! And have ibuprofen plus on stand by for Monday morning!
(I'm so responsible!!!)
@theoneandolnyem sorry to hear of AF, but glad it's not as bad as you expected! Stooooopid cramps! Mine just starting. Blargh.
@Shrillian, bugger about the BFN. But are you sure there couldn't be another one lurking?
Good luck for the FS tomorrow!
Hopefully I can get back into see mine to be able to start the IVF in May.
Good luck for everyone still testing!
Hi ladies, yesterday around noon I got a smiley face on a digi opk and a strong line on an internet cheapie, I have just tested again and another smiley face and an even darker line on my internet opk. Does this mean my lh is only just peaking and I haven't ovulated yet!? As we were on holidays we have given it a good crack this month and have DTD every day since CD13, today I am CD18. Do I need to continue to DTD today and tomorrow now that I am still getting pos opks. I have ovulated later than I expected and wondering if we are bd'ing too much as I often read too much s$x can hinder and not help your chances?? ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1397357426.715336.jpg
