Post subject: To all you Girlies TTC
Hi Girls.. I just wanted to say.. I don't really post here very often but enjoy coming on and seeing what is happening. Can I just say that all you ladies TTC (Chelle & Honie etc) have really kept me entertained the last couple of days!!!!!
It is like an online soap opera!! Who needs eastenders? You amaze me how you all are keeping so upbeat about stuff!!
I just wanted to wish you all luck for BFP.
Just wanted to say too that pregnancy and childbirth is my major area of interest. I read alot and research a lot of studies! I am due to become a student midwife soon. I am not sure about who is using what methods for conceiving (ie charting temp, cervical mucus or ovulation kits etc) personally, I found the best method to be to do BD every single day after AF was finished. (I fell preg twice first time around using this method!!) Many articles will tell you when you should ovulate!! A load of TOSH!!! We are all so different!
I am preg with baby 3 (not planned at all but very excited now) and I know for an absolute fact that my last period was 10th December and had very drunken naughty sex with DH on 14th Dec. That was the only time that whole month and I fell Preg!!! So that says it all!! Only 4 days after AF started I conceived!!
I gave this advice to a collegue only 8 weeks ago. they had been TTC for 17 month!! Guess what??? He called me to say they are Preg!!
Hope this helps girlies

Hi hun,first of all,congrats on your pregnancy!
Thank you for sharing your story with us,that is unbelievable!it just goes to show that all this we've been doing is not necessarily going to work!
I know myself that my ovulation calendar I did was wrong,as I don't think I ovulated til 3 days later!
Good luck with your pregnancy hun xxx

Hi Jenni.. I have a typical 28 day cycle. We are like ships passing in the night too.. but if you make the effort.. it can be done. To be honest with baby no1 we were literally just married and conceived whilst on honey moon. So we were at it like rabbits anyway..
with baby no2 I just decided that was the best approach to have and with number 3...well thats another story. But it just goes to show you dont it?
Also with baby no 3 I calculated that I was due on a certain date (going on the fact of a typical 28 day cycle and when I should have ovulated...but when I went for my dating scan they dated me well over a week ahead. So this just goes to show that I conceived around 14th or 15th Dec as embryo had starting growing around this time.
Hope thos helps

thats a very interesting theory....hhhmmm.
i suppose it makes sense really, dont have to worry about when ovulating, charting temperatures, CP, CM, just do it everyday and if u are ovulating its impossible to miss it!
thank u for that, if i dont get BFP this month then my partner will be very grateful to ur idea x

Hi Jo!!! well I think so and it always seem to work with folk.. Only thing is Hubby/partner will get fed up with all the sex!!! They begin to feel used and abused after a while... I mind my hubby saying he could not do it any more. But don't worry cos once I had conceived I don't thnk he got any loving for months
My excuse????? He was whining about it before so I was only being the concerned wifey and letting him have afew months off
