Testing in July

Hi all, I wanted to start a new thread. Hope that's okay. I've been TTC for a few months now. Two misscarrages so far and looking for some support. Starting again fresh this month and hoping a rainbow comes our way. Feeling broken but not defeated. 


  • @Bride2Be so sorry to hear you’ve had two miscarriages. Sending lots of love to you.xx
  • @Bride2Be so sorry to hear that, it absolutely sucks. All sparkly baby dust for you going forward. Here to support you all the way! Am testing in July too have been ttc for 18 months and have had 1 mc. 🤞 It's our time
  • Keeping our fingers crossed for you all! Thanks for your lovely messages. 
  • Hi all, AF arrived this morning, so I'm moving into this group for cycle 20...hoping its a lucky one.
    @Bride2Be so sorry to hear about your miscarriages, i had one myself back at the start of my TTC journey.
    My cycle has shortened to an average of 27 days (from 29), CD1 today, CD27 even seems so far away!!
    Hope everyone is hanging in dust to everyone on their TTC journey!
  • Hi again everyone. 5dpo today, cycle 12. Waiting to see if this will finally be my month.
  • CD1 😭😭😭
    Had a huge cry last night when I started spotting. 
    Called my fertility specialist to get my baseline scan appointment and they’re fully booked for this cycle 😭😭😭
    BUT…. Git the results of my AMH blood test and my ovarian reserve is above average for my age 😁😁
    so there’s some good news at least 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️
    2 years TTC this month 😐 meh!!
    good luck everyone!! Thinking of you all xxxxxx 
  • @KelB79 totally feel the tears,CD1 is the worst...and I get the initial, is this late implnatation or will it be AF.
    Big hugs! 
    Hope they can get you in next cycle for the baseline scan, I've not heard of that before...what will it check? 
  • Hi all, moving over to join you. I came on Wednesday. It was in line with my positive ov test so at least it came around the time I would have expected it. I wasn't as upset as last month. I just knew I wasn't pregnant and I have my second jabs on the 13th so prob best. My vaccine comes bang in the middle of my ov window so not great timing..

    Bride2Be - I'm so sorry to hear that you've had a second miscarriage. I hope that the group continues to give you hope and kind words. 

    KelB79- It's harder when you start thinking you might be and then it turns up. Focusing on the positive that is great news about your ovarian reserve being above average, super news! 

    All in it together! Let's hope that we see some positive news soon xxx
  • Hi all sorry I started a July thread earlier and didn't see this one so I'll come over. Cd16 just had my lh surge today so time to BD 🤞 bd'd last night n will try tonight n tomo. Hope everyones well xx 
  • Jessiebella- Yay! Glad your surge has come, good luck. X
  • Here I am again on cycle 7 now and on CD8 started using the OPK tests and doing all the usual things this cycle. Sorry to hear we’re all back here again but I feel positive that we’ll get some BFP! AF is due in my little ones Birthday I really hope I can give her some good news. 🤞🏽
  • Hello, I wrote on the other thread. But since this has more responses I'll stick to here! 
    Yup still waiting for AF to arrive, I just know I'm not preg, no early symptoms like I did last time, so yup CD28, just waiting. I didn't get a positive opk so I know I'm out. 
    I won't be testing, I'll just wait until AF. 
    Think I'm going to have a go at temping this month, worth a go.

    What opks do you all use? I don't want to use clear blue, too expensive (I have a handful left). Any mid range ones you guys use?
  • @NorthernGirl I use easy@home and started temping a couple of months ago but still dont have a clue what I'm looking for Haha xx
  • Northerngirl- I use One-step . You can buy them on Amazon in a pk of 50 or 30 and it works out to 17p per test. I've always found them pretty easy to use and reliable. 
  • @Jessiebella it's so bloody hard isn't it!! 

    @hannah22 Thanks, I have those now. Think I'm just crap at interpreting the results and my app seems v off! 

  • Northerngirl- drop the app?  
  • sorasora Regular

    Hello all, I am currently 13 DPO and am planning to test tomorrow. Wish me luck!
  • @NorthernGirl I literally take my temp in morning and update app not a clue apart from that Haha who knows what it actually means in regards to fertility or timings etc! 

    @sora 🤞🤞🤞 good luck babe be sure to update us! 

    Update on me ladies so O day should be today or tomo as had my peak yest. BD yest n day before n will tomo. Need to let the poor guy have a day off as it's his bday tomo so will obv will be having birthday sex 😜 also got another acupuncture appt on Friday so the start of 2ww. Had first one on 26th so 2 weeks between appts we shall see xx
  • So AF came today as expected (Well I never know exactly when but knew it would be this week!) so here we go again....trying to be positive, third cycle lucky 'eh!? 

    @hannah22 I do like logging my info, gives me something to do...but you definitely second guess your body and the signs it's giving you using an app I reckon!! 

    @Jessiebella fingers crossed, exciting! You're in for a chance!! 🎉🎉

    So I need to get my positive pants back on...need to order some more test strips and put batteries in my thermometer! Really hoping I find my peak this month. 

    Can you buy the clearblue holders separately? I have a few sticks left but holder broken. When I look online I can only see holders and sticks to buy together! They are bloody expensive! Xx
  • @hannah22 I think the baseline scan is to get a bit of an idea about my tubes etc - I’m hoping that they’ll see enough to not bother doing the laparoscopy that I’ve been referred for, I’m really not looking forward to that!!! But the specialist said they’d likely do both 🤷🏼‍♀️ 

    CD7 today. 2 years TTC this month, really struggling to get my head around that!! 🥴
    I’ve stopped all tracking except my AF dates, the specialist told me to scrap it and just BD every other day until CD11 - it definitely takes the pressure away from things 👌🏼
    I think the OH is trying his best to save us £5k on IVF 🤣🤣 he’s merrily BD’ing without pushing at the mo 🤣🤣🤷🏼‍♀️

    Those of you OPK testing and not getting clear results…. I found the easy@home tests with the Premom app to be the easiest to read, it’s all done automatically 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

    Good luck for this month gang - we’ve got this 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
