Forum home Getting pregnant Trying to conceive

My 2ww starts today(hopefully)-anyone else?

Had my fourth attempt at diy ai this afternoon as I feel like I am going to ov this evening-hope I do, although very nicely my donor has said that if I dont he can be available tomorrow or sunday for a topup!!
I do hope there is someone else starting their 2ww today or over the weekend so we can do it together.

  • Thanks Di, just posted on your thread. Can I just ask-how do lemons manage to taste more minging than they usually do??lol!!!xx
  • I'm working tomorrow then going for tea at my mums, she looks after lo whilst I work which means she has to be at my house at 6.30 am-shes really good to me. On sunday lo will probably go to her grandmas for a couple of hours and then if weather is ok we'll go to the cricket club,she can see her dad playing and I can catch up with friends. Have you any plans to try and stop thinking about those faint bfps?(dont think you will-I'm excited about them now!)

  • Sorry to hear about his job. Dont mind you being nosey!! I work 16 hours a week as a staff nurse so I get child tax credit and working tax credit . My lo goes to nursery 2 days a week which I pay about 30% of as rest I get included in the working tax credits. Lo's dad gives me a small amount monthly. I am very lucky that my parents paid off my mortgage years ago and I pay them back what I was paying(at that time) for a 40k interest only mortgage. I cant be extravagant like I was when I was on my own working full time(unfortunately I forget this some times!!)but we manage. Lo see her dad most days-he comes to see her after work which is a bit tying but it works ok and I get on reasonably well with his mum. I would struggle workwise if I didnt have my mum to help in a morning because my shifts start at 7am but 18 months ago my job was at risk and I found out that if I worked 16hours minimum wage the tax credits would make up my money so I would only be about ??40 a month worse off.
    I have other people who hve said they admire me but I dont really think theres anything to admire. I wasnt ever 'with' lo's dad it was just sex(awful to think of now-he turns my stomach!!lol) so we get on ok and I knew all through my pg that I was on my own so for me its the norm. It will be harder if/when I have another but lo will be at school before mat leave would end now so it shouldnt be too hard-lol!!
    A lot of people when I told them about the ai where like-go out and find a man just for a shag, but I dont think thats a fair or safe thing to do so I feel that the only option for another child is the route I have chosen.
    Bet you wished you'd not asked now!!!!!xx
  • Hi Mandy, I live in Otley-north west edge of Leeds. How nice to have someone fairly close to be on 2ww with. Good luck!!xx
  • Oh thankyou thats really nice. I hope that your bfp gets stronger next week, after the few months you've had you really deserve it. I wouldnt worry too much about the money-babies dont have to cost much if you get 2nd hand things and hopefully your h2b will grt another job soon. Everything crossed that your luck is going to improve!
