Also to all the ladies talking about pimples,I totally understand your pain, I use to get the worst hormonal breakouts around my chin, so bad that I would hate talking to people because I swear they were just staring at them but I think I'm the odd one out because since I have come off the pill my skin has been so clear .... Fingers crossed it stays that way!

2 days since af was due but nothing yet. Did a test this morning but was bfn so I don't know.
If not this month, think I will get the ovulation kit. I know we have talked about these before but can anyone tell me a brand you have had success with?
Feeling a bit teary today, wanting this so badly

I was worried as we may have BDed a bit too close to my actual O this month and I haven't had the booster... It seems that you get it straight after birth and that it's fine to have it then.
"Mothers should have an adult pertussis booster very soon after their baby is born. It is safe to have it while breastfeeding."
That's from the Royal Children's Hospital and I also read a NSW Health fact sheet that said the same.
"Immunisation for adults
A booster for adults is recommended for:
Both parents when they are planning a pregnancy, or just after the baby is born
Other adult household members, grandparents and carers of infants under 12 months of age.
Adults working with young children, especially health care and child care workers.
New mothers in NSW are eligible for free whooping cough vaccine in the maternity unit after the birth of their children or, if this is not possible, free vaccine is available from their GP within 1-2 weeks after the birth."

Oh and hello and welcome to balletbaby!
I recommend the peace of mind from knowing you O'd. I used up a whole bag of them on my first month off the pill and then just left it because I just needed the proof that one time! I know that sometimes you can have an LH surge with no egg but I think it's very rare. So I personally think they are a fantastic idea.
Look after yourself today if you are feeling a bit low! Lots of delicious food and rest
But fx that you will be in for some good news anyway!!

We have pushed our TTC start date out to end of July due to budget and when we think we'd be ready to go back down to 1 income again....
Feeling disappointed but also wondering if I should just get some O kits in the meantime to just keep track of when things are happening...
What do you all think? Worthwhile or wait until we're actually trying to bother with that?

From what I have read etc your cycle can change month to month, so I am not sure if ovulation kits would be useful prior to ttc but it certainly couldn't hurt :-)
A least it would give you an idea of approx when it could happen :-)

I think I am just wanting to feel like we've already started 😉

Sorry to hear that has upset you giggle berry. It takes time to get to know your body when ttc, so I would totally start trying to work out when that window of opportunity happens. It may take some of the stress away when you do start ttc and you will have an approx known time of ovulation and know the signs to look for. I think it is called the billings method that is great to follow. Looking for the egg white mucous was the biggest clue for me and natural family planning with temp checks etc. I used fertility friend and it helped me big time as my cycles were 40 days. I did use an ovulation kit once I saw the egg white mucous and it worked but didn't use them at other times. Once I get my mirena out I will be sussing all of this out again.
It will come around so quickly!
