This thread moves far too fast for me to keep up! Anyway thought I'd let you know that I took two HPT POAS away with me camping! I managed to hold off until Sunday to check and a BFP result came up really quick - wasn't even a morning wee ( took the test at about 5pm) didn't believe my eyes so then did another test!! So excited but now so nervous too! Id really like to get bloods done this time... GP told me it wasn't necessary last time but I think it might just ease my mind until I can see OB at 7-8weeks...

Congratulations Angelski. I wish you a stressfree, uneventful and happy pregnancy. So excited for you! How many weeks do you think you are? 4?
Hopefuljen thanks we will be waiting for you when you are ready. Sorry for your loss. You can always join us until you are ready and chat along.
ja I hope you get through your angel's birth date and I hope you manage to do something special. Stay in here as long as you need, we're here to listen.
mmh I have got a bfp using sperm meets egg. I think it's really good but you have to be sure of O so maybe in conjuction with OPk's.
Angelmummy82 hope you get that bfp soon. Thanks for the pep talk it is nice to know people care and this thread is so lovely and supportive.
Renovatormum yes we are doing a bathroom reno we have no walls at the moment and nothing in it. What are you renovating? Most doctors say to wait one cycle but I know of others who have succesffulyl fallen without an AF. Good lucj with whatever you decide.
Jacks81 good luck testing on wednesday.
AFM: Going ok one week til O and keeping busy.

Angelski – congratulations! Fabulous news
Hopefuljen – sorry for your loss. We look forward to you joining us.
Jacks81 – not long to wait now, you’re a strong woman holding off! Fx for a bfp for you.
Ja – sending hugs for this hard day.
Cheeky – I know that waiting waiting waiting feeling. Waiting for AF to finish, waiting to O, waiting for 10dpo… sigh.
Mummylip – hope the renos move swiftly! Let’s hope we both get November bfps and are UTD for Chrissy
Angelmummy – Fx for a November bfp for you as well, good luck catching eggy.
AFM – have got myself over the disappointment of AF arriving. With DS and angelbaby I got UTD first go, so I was a bit shocked that it didn’t happen! Probably silly of me but I just thought it would happen straight away again. Oh well. I have ordered OPKs to use this cycle in conjunction with BBT charting and my Maybe Baby. I’ll be in Hong Kong for work the three days before O, so DH has organised to work from HK those days as well and is flying down with me to Sydney for the weekend, so we should be in with a chance at least. Fingers crossed, I am the least patient person on earth!

Angelski, congratulations! Wonderful news, let's hope it all goes smoothly for you.
Mummy lip, yes we are in middle of renos, stressful! Can't wait till its done though, only living areas and outdoors to go woo hoo!
Hopefuljen so sorry for your loss. We are here for a chat if you ever need.
Tiggerfildes, sounds like you've got the whole "o" time covered, does your DH work overseas? best of luck!
Well, AFM, I've done an opk today, and it's getting darker! although a bit apprehensive as I've not had my follow up appt with ob, we dtd sat (sorry tmi) so I'll guess I'll just wait to see what tomorrows opk does.
Can anyone explain this 'sperm meets egg plan' I've seen it written a bit, but not sure of what it entails.

Renovatormum here is some info on it:
On day 8 of your cycle, counting from the first day you bled, begin "trying" every other night. Begin taking Ovulation Predictor Kits (or continue with your Ovulation computer) on Day 10. Buy two five-packs so as not to scrimp on taking them and stop too early. To make sure your OPK is working well, take your test in the afternoon or after work and do not drink any liquids or go to the bathroom for at least four hours prior to testing. (Morning is not a good time for OPKs, which look for the LH surge, which usually happens during the day.) Read your OPK instructions carefully, as usually a faint line does not indicate a positive, you need a line that is darker than the test line. LH is produced throughout your cycle and will only predict ovulation when it has a big surge.
When your OPK turns positive, begin trying every night for three consecutive nights, skip the fourth night, and then once more. Then stop! The waiting begins.
Take a home pregnancy test 15 or 16 days after your OPK was positive if your period has not begun. Do not buy internet pregnancy tests or tests that claim to work before your period is expected. They are not well manufactured and are not reliable. They will only cause you more anxiety than you already feel in wanting to know. Please resist the urge to do a blood test at your doctor's office just to find out sooner unless you have a medical reason to know early. Fertilized eggs that do not grow are actually a terrible but normal occurrence as much as 75% of the time, and seeing a very low put positive blood test in the first 14 days can place you on a terrible emotional roller coaster. By the time a home pregnancy test is positive, your baby has safely implanted and your odds of miscarriage are down to a normal 10%.
Should your OPK never become positive, keep the every other day trying going until day 35. I recommend at that point taking a home pregnancy test, but even if it is negative, you might want to take a quantitative hCG blood test at your doctor's office. Remember that not every women will ovulate every month. I personally did not ovulate for two months following my first miscarriage.
As you are trying, make sure to "release" the sperm in your partner at least once during the gap between ovulation and new cycle Day 8 so that no more than 10 days elapse without new sperm production. Sperm is also a cause of genetic damage, not just eggs, so keep it fresh! If you are not successful the first month, it is not because your sperm did not get to your egg. 75% of eggs are lost within the first 14 days due to normal genetic damage or failure to fertilize. Just keep trying!

WOW A new thread and it has already moved so fast!!!
Huge congratulations to angelski that is fantastic news!!
Welcome to all the new names I see, I am very sorry to read of your losses.
Angelmummy - Thanks for thinking of me. I am doing well and how are you going?
I have been trying to distance myself from the BH and focus on other things but TTC is all I seem to think about, so if I am not on here daily its just because I am trying to distract myself. You all probably know what I am talking about - when you want something so bad that it just always pops up in your thoughts when you are least expecting it, so the plan is to keep busy. AF has finally left and the count down is on til O. I have been forgetting to temp but I will try and remember to start doing it again tomorrow. Hope you are all doing well and goodluck for cup day tomorrow

Cherished. I have had a break the last week for the same reason. I have now posted about 15 times today to make up for it
Completely understand the obsessive focus. I am trying to plan as much stuff in my week as possible to try not to think about it
Glad AF has left and you are gearing up for another round....
