The Rules...

(1) A lady may only POAS on a Friday.
(2) Friday means the day that everyone calls Friday in the time zone where you spent the night.
(3) Rule (1) does not apply to POA-OPK-S, UNLESS they are being illegitimately used as surrogate HCG detectors, in which case Rule (1) most definitely does apply
(4) Rule (1) does not apply following a BFP because if you want to waste £25 a day POADigiS that's your prerogative <<refuses to admit that's what I'll do>>
(5) Rule (1) does not apply if a lady is POAS in an attempt to get a BFN to prove she can start DTD with intent
(6) Rule (1) does not apply if a lady wants for unknown reason to pee on an actual stick, like a twig or some such, if that lady is unexpectedly caught short whilst tramping in the forest looking for bears.
(7) These rules (including Rule (1)) are subject to the change at any time if the ladies of the Posifrickentivity thread decide on a whim come up with empirical evidence to prove that it is luckier to POAS on any other day of the week
(8) Violators of Rule (1) shall be subject to fish throwing.

And as a grand finale, why not pledge to NEVER POAS before 14DPO?

Marking my place!

littlemisssunshine I am still laughing at that story, maybe you laughed some out and some further in......

tannyLoo Thu 24-Apr-14 20:24:16

I'm in!

You never know, this might be the thread we leave part way through!

tannyLoo 42, TTC #3 for 15 months. 5 shitbagging mcs, all at about 5-6 weeks. Blood tests and on a break. Fucking knackered.

Cakebaker35 Thu 24-Apr-14 20:39:23

Marking my place too! littlemiss very funny story and no I don't think it matters, I've not kept legs in the air ever and got upduffed twice. As for dtd, we only have once since I had the erpc a month ago. As you say I think my dh just doesn't want the pressure of ttc right now, I didn't either initially but feel ready to give it a go...I think best just not mention it for the time being and hopefully just get back to some sort of normal tith!

Stats for me

cakebaker35 37, ttc#2 since oct 13, mmc twins in March 14 followed by erpc.

Justonemoretime Thu 24-Apr-14 20:42:38

Justonemoretime TTC #1 mmc Nov 2011, mmc May 2012, mmc June 2013 (turners), all tests clear at St Marys, London, low end of normal with prof Quenby. Progesterone and heparin is the plan going forward + repeat TEG from St Marys, too. Had heart shaped uterus, corrected at St Marys Oct 2013.

Triplespin Thu 24-Apr-14 20:53:06

sebs I can definitely see a line there. Maybe try in the morning with am frer? Also I am not quite sure that the lines get darker with ics like they do with frer.

My stats - triplespin 36 ttc#2 march 2013 (can't even remember anymore!) June'13 mc1 5+3, march'14 mc2 6+3. All rmc tests so far clear.

Technically I am still 35, but less than a month to go, so I have put down 36

tannyLoo Thu 24-Apr-14 21:36:42

Oh, and I do have (some) news!

Off for my 2nd autoimmunity blood test tomorrow which I hope will prove I have something like APS, something with a treatment plan...

Hopefully the results will be back in time for consultant appt on 12th May.

I'm also getting tested for Rheumatoid Factor next week, which is a separate issue, but is an autoimmune condition.

Not trying this month but I'm on CD10 and gagging for some TITH. Had some already (hold the gravy) today and could go again! You can guarantee that when we get back to ttc, I'll not be feeling so frisky...

FlorenceandZebedee Thu 24-Apr-14 21:42:48

Hi all,

Vital stats: 35, TTC#2, MMC end of feb 11+5 now back to DTD and the 2 ww :-(

Just had a fab week by the seaside but ending on a low note. Feeling meh as due to see the witch this weekend and cramps started on weds, guess it's not going to be my month.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow and for the next month!

Thanks for starting the new thread just.

sebs any update?

Any other poasers this morning? Good luck!

GandTnow Fri 25-Apr-14 09:41:03

Marking place in vauge not sure what events this cycle holds sort of way. Stats: TTC #2 MMC in Nov 2013.

sebsmummy1 Fri 25-Apr-14 09:48:34

Sorry, updated on the old thread. Thankfully squinter is no stronger, if anything a little weaker, so I suspect it may have been a chemical or else it could just be the ICs doing their normal and being totally crap and unreliable.

I only POAS to start with as my cm has been ridiculous the last few days. When I used to read posts on TTC forums about gushing cm I used to roll my eyes and think stealth boast grin. But it really has been ridiculous just how wet I've been the last three days. I wonder whether it could be the exercise I'm doing? I will chart it in FF and just carry on.

I'm on cd7, OV expected around cd13. I have ov sticks to check in the evening as I couldn't be arsed to get my fertility monitor out this month. I'm taking Maca root each morning in a smoothie along with DP. Am also considering a high dose co-enzyme q10 formula to help with egg quality. Plus of course a Pregnacare supplement and 200mg vit B6 dose to help with LP.

This month we are going to DTD every other day across the fertile window. When I get a peak stick I will prob do it that day too if it's not on the schedule. Also for a bit afterwards too as last cycle we stopped pretty early as OH was poorly.

sebsmummy1 Fri 25-Apr-14 09:51:35

Oh and just to add to my TTC dilemma I am considering going back to uni to retrain. If I do I will have to give up the hope of a second as I will need to do three years full time. I hate that I haven't got a crystal ball and can't see what is in store for me so I can make some good decisions.

Sorry the witch got you Gail, and sorry your body is doing weird things sebs.

We're going to a wedding tomorrow and I'm trying to fight off a cold so I can at least drink lots of wine and make the most of not being preggo yet!
