Hi ladies!! Thought I’d start this and get the ball rolling since it’s now October 1st 😉
Current Cycle Day: CD14
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: No clue, since my cycles are still regulating after getting off of BCP in August. Hoping to hold off until 10/22.
Cycles trying: 2nd cycle of NTNT. We aren’t charting, temping, or using OPKs yet. Trying to take the relaxed approach in the beginning!
BD timing: Every other day.
Any obstacles?: None yet, but my family has a history of Endo, so if we try for a year with nothing, I’m going to get a lap surgery done.
Good luck ladies!! Hoping October is a lucky month for us all! 🙂

Weeeeee! I’m in:)
DH and I are NTNT, so I probably don’t have as much to tell.
POAS date: Not sure…I’m only tracking AF days and I’m not temping, but based on my history probably somewhere around the 18th.
No cycles actually trying, but this is our 2nd NTNT.
Whenever we feel like it…leaving it up to nature and chance.

Yay October babies!
Current Cycle Day: 9DPO
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: I’ll be POAS-ing on October 6th 🙂 I went off BC in June, so my cycles are a tad wonky… ranging from 25-35 days.
Cycles trying: This is our third! We’ve been charting/temping, but if we don’t get a BFP this cycle I think we are going to stop charting and just BD every other day.
BD timing: Not great this month; I O-ed a week earlier than I thought I would, in the middle of some HUGE stress…soo, not a great chance this month 🙁
Any obstacles?: Not that I know of. I had a LEEP in August of last year for some pre-cancerous cells, but I’m cleared to TTC and shouldn’t have any problems. Who knows if I do :p

@MrsCarnival: You and I are in the same boat! I guess I’m more NTNT as well, but I’d like to think I’m more TTC, as I want a baby sooner rather than later ;). Like you, the only thing I’m really doing is tracking my periods on an app. Good luck to you!! 🙂

Current Cycle Day: CD15 — Pretty sure I am Oing today or soon…Had a temp dip this morning and EWCM
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: AF is due Oct 16th so prob OCT 12-13. Cycles are 31 – 32 days
Cycles trying: This is cyle #3 for us
BD timing: Kinda just whenever but every day now since I think O is here or near
Any obstacles?: Nothin that we know of yet
Favorite thing about October: The smell of a pumpkin candle, the apple harvest festival I go to every year with my gram and mom & apple dumplins for sureeee! 🙂

Current Cycle Day: CD5 boring……
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: Avg cycle length is 28, looking to POAS approx Oct 25th
Cycles trying: This is my third cycle charting before we were NTNT, but it looks like we are on board to start!
BD timing: Looking for every other day, or possibly every day towards O.
Any obstacles?: Nothing confirmed yet but in my charting I have observed spotting for 3 days before AF, and AF only lasts for about a day with spotting after. I haven’t heard anything positive about spotting, well unless it is implantation 😛

@ButterflyDoll: Good luck lady – hope O is right around the corner for you. 🙂

@MrsJuneBee: Good luck! Hoping this is your lucky month 🙂

@dramabean: Very close!!! Good to hear you are cleared for TTC and those pre cancerous cells shouldn’t be a worry…thats enough to rack your brain! I have had some stress as well, and illness…usually I seem to O early CD10 or so but it maybe late this time!

@Blondee: and same to you!! I am kinda liking the idea of NTNT, I almost wish I would have gone a bit longer without but then I wouldn’t know about my possible issues with spotting. Who knows! 🙂 I may go back

Current Cycle Day: CD45 / 16DPO – I got a BFN yesterday, so if AF doesn’t show, I’ll test on 10/3/12. For my NEXT cycle, I think my POAS day may be the 30th/31st at the earliest.
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: I have no idea. Before using Mirena, I had regular 32-33 day cycles, but this is CD45 and counting!
Cycles trying: Trying to finish up #1.
BD timing: Timing? What is that? LOL
Any obstacles?: Nope, my cycles are fairly regular (or they were before Mirena), and I know I CAN get pregnant (been so twice before, although the last one was in May 2010 and ending in a MC…).

@MrsJuneBee: Hope your spotting issue goes away. My first period last month only lasted for a day then I had spotting for a few days, but I’m hoping it was because it was my first period off BCP. Did you just recently get off the pill?

@rubyred605: Welcome & good luck to you!!

Current Cycle Day: CD6, hoping I O in the teens instead of the twenties this month
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: Been charting for the last 3 months, the first cycle was 40 days, the next was 28 and my last one was 34 days so I have no idea when i’ll be POAS-ing.
Cycles trying: This will be the third one really trying as the first cycle I was charting to prevent and ovulated when I thought my flo was coming because it happened on day 28.
BD timing: This cycle im not going to tell the hubs when im in my fertile window as it sometimes gives him performance anxiety. Timing wise, hopefully every second day for the least.
Any obstacles?: None that we know of
Favorite thing about October: Ummm, nothing in particular that I can think of right now… hopefully i’ll get a bfp then that can be my fave thing about October
