Also dreading the ultrasound as last time it was to see my baby, so it's gonna be hard. I felt my friends baby kick at work last week & I had a lump in my throat.

Oh i'm sure, will your partner be able to attend with you if you'd like him to for support? Fingers crossed it all shows clear and current pains are maybe because you're more heightened to it right now.

We have iburprofen in our corner! That gives him relief for the worst of it. Hoping the weather cools down so at least feeling a bit more able to get in the mood when the time comes haha.

I'm amazed at the symptom spotting, i thought i was so in tune with my body that it was a harsh slap in face when af came, cruel tricks indeed.
*sigh* work colleague must be difficult to talk to, its so hard when no avoiding it. I get upset (but hidden like you), and try my best to clear it completely out of mind when home by focusing on something usually tedious!

I was thinking it maybe be partly psychosomatic, but I'm a REAL worrier and suffer health anxiety at the best of times so until I'm proved wrong I'll believe the worst. He will no doubt be coming along, I'm worried people will see us & get the wrong idea.

Ah, ibuprofen isn't too bad then. You both must be so strong!

It's been super hot here today, wouldn't fancy it tonight.

I seem to be surrounded by pregnant people, see at least 5 customers a shift who are pregnant. And two of my colleagues are pregnant. One keeps asking my questions about my pregnancy & it makes me really miss it.
I found myself googling all kinds and really believing this was it, even when I started bleeding I read 'implantation bleeding is soemtimes mistaken for a period...' Clutching straw after straw!

I really hope you're successful this week!

Thank you, and of course the same to you for good scan news

There does seem to be some sort of pregnancy boom going on!
Gave up seat on train for pregnant lady last night only to stand up next to another seat with another very pregnant lady. SILs family member who is no relation to me (never even met them) is pregnant and i'm hearing all the intricate details of a completely second hand pregnancy as if it's her own. I don't want to know! I dropped multiple hints to her many times for a year or so whilst i was getting married of how i don't agree with all her questions about when getting pregnant, and flat out bluntly told her this year when it got too far also, yet now i get secondhand obsession as apparently that's different.
If only we can filter who we see/hear haha

I know! It does seem pregnancy is everywhere but obviously we're just noticing it more. My friend had a baby today & the other starts maternity leave at the weekend & it's difficult to pretend I'm not a little jealous. As happy as I am for them!

Trying to focus on other things but watching repeats of one born every minute is in no way helping!

Hi ladies, thought I'd just dip my toe back in. We're planning on trying for our 3rd (and last ��) ideally I would like to start from October but we're not using anything ATM (as the pill ran out and I want to regulate).

Seeing as I do have 2 boys everyone does assume I will be "trying for a girl" IM NOT. I am actually trying for a baby, I would love that baby to be a girl but I wouldn't be upset if it was a boy. (I feel like I'm destined to have boys so can't actually see a girl coming anytime soon) to be completely honest a boy would "fit" better as we're in a 2 bed place and not planning on moving.

I hate the questions too, people don't realise how upsetting it can be

I can understand them as well though to be honest, we know a couple who have made it clear they will be trying and I can't help but think, oooo I wonder if they are everytime we see them. I don't say anything but I do think, hmmm if I wasn't going through this myself would I be asking them.

I think it'd be nice if we both got pregnant within 3 months of each other though, so that when the first announces it the other doesn't have to go through that jealousy as they'll just be waiting for their first scan... but life isn't always that kind to people is it.

Ugh feeling stressed trying to work out ovulation today is only cycle day 9 and I feel like I've got sore boobs & am having watery DC (tmi) surely cycle day 9 is too early for this? Also my pains getting worse the right side is like a constant stabby pain I'm actually terrified there's something really wrong going on in there.

Does anyone else get the DC that just pretty much feels like water? I actually thought I was bleeding again earlier it was that bad!

Day off today so too much time to worry I think. Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend!

Try not to worry about it too much badwolf. I find when we're looking out for symptoms they seem to appear more

Trying not to, just hate waiting for answers. Just been informed there's a 6 weeks waiting list for US too. Ugh.

Does anyone track CP?

No, I've tried sometimes but I'll be honest I'm not sure what I'm feeling when I do, so it seems a bit useless... I sometimes ask husband what he feels but again he's not an expert

I can feel if it's low as it can be rather uncomfortable DTD when it is, so have to be a bit careful.

Although from what I've read it doesn't give too much insight into the cycle at all really. Just as well as mines been high all through AF and still is now, it's a hard life being a woman.

Never tracked CP either, i've tried couple of times but don't know what i'm doing despite knowing the steps. So I ignore that method especially as, like all these tests, there doesn't seem to be a set rule! That's what's difficult with this malarkey, for every rule there's a contradiction somewhere online, so i find you convince yourself one way or the other.

I used opks for first time this cycle, the only line which appeared over 3 days which was visible (compared to nothing at all on others) was still faint compared to some i've seen which have been called negative. So i dont know they'll ever work for me but it's the only test method i'm on.

Desperately trying to take my own advice and only focus on projects, and enjoying the events i have upcoming where can have a drink and make the most of it. Today's been my first day in about a week where reading anything and everything on ttc. So i'll allow this dip but then hopefully get back to trying to ignore it all until next cycle window! As i have felt like a crazy woman today, so do prefer ignoring it when it's possible.

Hows the symptoms BW? Still playing on your mind or have they eased a little?

That is true I popped into the am I pregnant section in that higher thread they seem to know what they're talking about when it comes to TTC. But it's easy to start obsessing, you're right.

How is your husband atm?

I've got an ultrasound appointment on Friday so will find out then, what's causing the pain. And if all goes well OH and I are going to discuss TTC. We've got our first family holiday next June, and OH said he won't go if I'm pregnant! He wants to wait, but we're getting married the following June so I don't think there'll ever be a perfect time. It's lost it's excitement thinking of an ideal time. So I'm not sure where we are.
