    Cd13 for me. I think I may have o'ed early this month and missed the boat. We're still giving it a go though in case I'm wrong.
    Random and rather personal question, what's everybody's post dtd routine? Do you do anything to try to improve your chances? Is there anything that actually helps?

    Sorry to hear you'll be taking a break. Fingers crossed that when you're ready to ttc again it happens quickly for you.

    Good luck @brodiesmummy2011 hopefully your body is nice and 'routine' this month (I've been following your diary so felt your frustration last month (if that doesn't sound weird!)).

    SO all ladies out there I desperately need your opinions, I did another hpt today at 11dpo after a negative yesterday and thought after 3 minutes I could see a faint line, I convinced myself it was an indent but could still see it at 10 mins (but couldnt determine if it was white or slightly pink) so I pulled the test apart, holding it to the light I though it was pink at the edges. It is a clear Evap line now that it's dry but I still think there's a tinge of pink at the edges (btw it's a FRER). AM I clutching straws or is it possible I've just tested to early? I only tested this month because I felt a little different, otherwise it's been a year of clear PMS symptoms followed on time by AF or stark BFNs, I'm praying this is our miracle and we don't have to go down the treatment path!

    Default August 2016 TTC

When preg with #1 I was only on pentasa but flared badly after he was born and its been really hard to control so they've had to go hard with the medications. Just reached remission in April after 18 months and only just been given the go ahead to try for #2. If you have any advice I'd love to hear it (also shout out to @Yogis Mumma)
    I am on Humira and feel 100% confident...a couple of years ago I was living in Calgary (Canada) and they had a world class IBD Centre...so much so, a maternity and Crohn's dept was created...amazing that it was so specialised. Even though I wasn't pregnant, they let me meet with a spec to discuss pregnancy and Crohns as they knew when I returned to Aus a Centre like that didn't exist. I was explained Humira in detail and it is very safe in their minds..the exact was explained by my gastro here. There was a suggestion of going off Humira in the 3rd trimester...but I'll discuss this when I'm pregnant.

    I've been in surgery induced remission..sorry I don't have any suggestions for reducing flare ups during pregnancy etc. as this is new to me - my biggest thing is trying to control my stress and eating good foods (they can be my triggers) xx

    My husband's chuckles at me but I put pillows under my butt to try to make my pelvis angled...(hubby actually helps which is sweet). That month I also ended up putting my heels up on the wall and then pillow under bum and that got an awesome angle.

    I say anything that could help can't hurt!!! I stay a minimum of 20 mins and play on my phone.

    Hi Ladies, I am new to this group. My DH and I started Ttc #1 in May which ended in a chemical. I have an long cycle 40day+ on average so thought it would take a long time to conceive so at least one positive is something is working... I guess.

    We took a break in Jun/July due to a long 50 day cycle and have decided to attempt again this month. I have been tracking for about a year but have no idea when I o due to an irregular cycle. So trying every other day through this month. Currently Day 14 so will test during the last few days in August. Last month I took my temperature, did the ovulation test and observed my cm. This month I'm not collecting any data which I have found to not make me feel so fixated on conceiving.

    Crossing my fingers for you all this month.

    Thanks so much! My specialist is excellent and I trust him, I was worried about the combo of meds but he's not at all, he's published a lot of papers on pregnancy & crohn's so he knows a lot about it. I'd prefer to not have to take all this junk (as anyone would I guess!) but I know after last time I need to stay on it to stay well for baby and my first DS. They are doing a large study on humira and pregnancy which they might put me on once I fall pregnant again. I'm interested to see if there will be a difference with my next bub, DS came at 37 weeks and was 2.9kg - good size for his gestation but I have wondered if he came early-ish/smaller because I wasn't 100% at the time then pretty much flared big time within 4-6 weeks of birth.

    I was getting close to going down the surgery route earlier in the year as I have been on and off steroids the whole 18 months, Humira was our last ditch effort and so far it's been working but he won't take me off the aza anytime soon because its taken so long to get here. He wants me off humira in the third trimester only if I'm going well so bub can have all vaxes once born (otherwise no live vaccines for baby for 6 months), but then loading again after birth (4 jabs then 2 jabs etc to try and nip it in the bud). Finding it a bit scarier this time around tbh after my last experience! Fingers crossed we've got it right this time. GL with it, maybe we'll be in a DIG together!!

    I'm soooo tired. I'm usually in bed between 1-2am but I've been falling asleep since 10pm tonight. I was asleep by midnight last night and slept til 8 which is a massive sleep for me.

    Maybe it's something
