Roll call

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 2. I had a few days of spotting prior (very, very faint). I know some ladies will call that CD 1, but it wasn’t enough for me to be convinced. 

Ovulation Date: unknown

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: not sure yet. I’ll say put me down for Sept 30th. Although it’ll probably change to something earlier. Cycle is still regulating off of BCP, so don’t know my cycle length yet.   

Cycles Trying: This will be 3rd month. (I think only 1st month with a “true” cycle.)

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): As much BD as possible. 🙂 Since I don’t know O date. I have some OPKs. Might give them a whirl. Taking prenatals. Working out. 

My biggest thing is that I need to RELAX! I got myself all worked up last month because my cycle was long, had weird spotting and BFNs. I over analyzed everything! Just need to realize it’ll take time…

Link to Chart, if any: no chart

and for fun –

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC? No big plans for this month. August was full of vacation plans. Hubby is starting school, so he will be busy. I am going to focus on working out.

@runningcali:  thanks for starting the new board! I really couldn’t handle the idea of doing it another month…

 

Roll call

 

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 19/DPO 5. 

 

Ovulation Date: 22nd August

 

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: About 5th September – that’s the day AF will be due. I’m gonna hang out and not POAS if I can until then.

 

Cycles Trying: This will be our 7th cycle 🙁 such a long time to be waiting – it’s making me sad that some of the ladies I started TTC with the same month are now 6-7 months along! 

ETA: I am happy for them but sad for me (hope that makes sense)

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): we managed to get O-4, O-2 and O this month – a miracle really because I had a dodgy neck and was seeing a physio but nothing was stopping us hehe, prenatals for me and now DH has been on the Menevit for 3 months (they reckon they should be used 3 months to have an effect on the swimmers – thou we don’t know if that is our issue we figured a boost wouldn’t harm us)

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC? Slightly cheating but we have a wedding on 31st (semi destination to us – 4-5 hr drive away) so that’ll keep us busy during the rest of my tww. We’re also going around a trialling new gyms as ours is slightly too far away (was ok when they had a good class schedule but they stopped the decent classes and we were only going for the gym equipment, we figure we can do that closer to home and save ourselves 45mins a day in commuting 🙂 bonus couple time YAY :))

@runningcali:  Wow, congrats! Very exciting, good luck with it. Do you mind me asking what EPO is?

 

@yougotme:  We almost have identical cycles! Happy birthday in advance – I’m one of those people that say you get a birthday week – a whole week about you 🙂

 

@ShellVee:  Enjoy your wedding- I love a good wedding!

 

Wow! 45 mins is far to go for the gym. Mine is only 5 mins down the road and it’s so much easier 🙂 Good luck picking your new one

@CocoLoco523:  It’s so hard not to symptom spot and when you do it’s so much worse when AF arrives! My friend told me she ‘knew’ when she was pregnant. I ‘knew’ twice now and turns out it was all in my head- so basically I don’t have a clue!!! Definitely not worth the stress!!!

You said you’re working out this month. Are you cutting back at all while TTC? Or what types are you focusing on?

@phoebephoebo:  I haven’t been cutting back since TTC. It’s been about the same. I do yoga 3+ times a week, group fitness, running. And recently I’ve been lifting weights with my hubby. Really trying to get in good shape before getting pregnant. 🙂 plus it relieves my stress

@CocoLoco523:  Oh right! Was told you should cut back a bit but I suppose if you don’t go crazy it’s fine. I was actually thinking of doing yoga again. Did it years ago and def need something to relieve stress now! Exercise is definitely a great stress reliever during TTC! 🙂

Roll call

 

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 17/ DPO 6

Ovulation Date: August 20

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Sept 3

Cycles Trying: This was supposed to be #4 but for some reason, I ovulated 4 days earlier than normal and completely missed actively trying which sucks cause we were all geared up to go. How I ovulated early (according to FF), I have no idea so I’m not officially considering this trial #4. We did bd twice in the new window so we’ll see if anything resulted.

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.):  prenatals..and bd every day in window if this cycle dosent produce a bfp.

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 19 / 4 DPO

Ovulation Date: CD 15 / August 22

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length:  Sept 4 / 26 – 28 days. If cycle 3 is a negative, I’ll POAS in late September too!

Cycles Trying: 3rd cycle off BCP, 3rd cycle TTC, 1st cycle temping!

Link to Chart, if any: Haven’t figured out how to share my chart yet!

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC?  DH & I are going on a short vacay to Maine over labor day with some friends.  I’ll be in the TWW, but we’re doing a brewery tour and some other cocktailing!  And I’m starting a new job on Sept 9!

@CocoLoco523:  Awesome yoga 3 times a week. I used to go 2+ times a week before our wedding, but haven’t gotten back in a routine yet.

@pinkshoes:  Iceland!! That’s so cool! I’ve always wanted to go. Have fun!

@runningcali:  Good luck / congrats on the house!
