Thanks LilNightmare and Disney.
The first month I was trying I noticed a whole lot of symptoms and then af arrived so I was pretty disappointed. No symptoms the last two months, did a hpt around the day af was due then got af that day! This month I wanted to do it a little differently so thats why I bought some (heaps!) ICs and have been testing everyday.
I keep thinking that maybe the symptoms I have are either normal or due to something else. Even though I know the cramping and the cm is unusual. fx it is because a bub is in the process of implanting...I'm probably just setting myself up for disappointed . DH is extra keen this month...think he's starting to realise it might actually take a while.
If I'm not utd this month I'll probably take it a bit easy next month - I've been keeping good records this month so that will be helpful for future months if I have any unusual symptoms.
fx I won't need it! Should know by early next week though so not long left to wait.
Good luck everyone!
To answer you question Disney: I will tell you by month:
Month 1: Twice (probably day before&after o)
Month 2: 10 (including the three days after probable o)
Month 3: 5
Month 4 (this one): about 11 (sometimes twice in one day!), about 7 times before a +ve opk, then 4 after, possibly last time was a day or half day before o...

M20R, Wishing you all the best and a speedy total recovery.
When DS was a baby we fed him on cue. If I couldn't figure out what us up I fed him and that always got him settled again. I had my boobs out so much I didn't wear a shirt alot. It also saved with the fiddling. His stomach was so small and breastmilk so easily digested he just kept getting hungry. As he got older you learn his rythym and fall in behind that. I remember before he was born I was so worried about how to figure out what he needed and when and what time. But I got some great advice, and that was if he was unsettled put a boob in his face. DS hardly ever cried as a baby. (Luckly he didn't have reflux or colic).
His day now follows this pattern,
Trip out to the shops library etc.
Trip to the pool if it is hot
I try to fit any house work in while he is playing. He loves to help with the washing!
He wakes from his sleeps after only 20mins if I am not with him so I have to lie next to him so he sleeps longer which is fine, i just read or sleep myself.
He has just given up his last night boob but still wakes up at least three times a night and wriggles about till he falls back to sleep. (we bed share) I haven't had a full night sleep in 18months!

Blotched - thanks for sharing that info, you've given yourself every chance this month so I hope your cramping is bubs settling in! LilNightmare you too! Is it getting more normal now bd with contraception. I'm still giggling just at the thought, we haven't given it a go yet that's the next thing I'm waiting for once af has left the building.
I think that's all we do is wait.
trio - thanks for sharing your routine, it seems you didn't read up on this either? Am I over thinking this? Will it really just come naturally? I suppose now I've got an idea what you guys do I can work with that. I do have a tendency to research a lot, it's in my nature, especially on subject matters I know NOTHING about. My biggest fear is the sleep thing. I don't work well with no sleep so I'm panicked about that. 18 months without a full night?!? Dh and I would be divorced by now!! Lol!!!
