- Wedding: July 2012 - Catholic Church
Here’s the link to the old thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/the-6-month-ttc-group-part-14-a-new-generation-ready-to-graduate?replies=496#axzz2LSKmWqiw.
Cycles/months trying: Cycle 7, 7 months trying
Current CD/DPO: CD20
Chart (if you have one): http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/ScottishMrs and http://www.tcoyf.com/members/ScottishMrs/charts/3.aspx
Any known issues? Nothing diagnosed, just long/irregular cycles.
Supplements/medications: Folic acid, VitB Complex, Cranberry, TrioMax, VitC, Calcium, Vit B12, Acidophilus, and grapefruit juice up to O.
Next steps? We’re going to continue as we are until we reach a year then we’ll do the unintrusive testing like the SA and hormone checks and decide then whether we’ll move on to the more intrusive things or wait to do so until we’ve finished school (December of this year or April of next year).
For fun, what are you looking forward to most this year?: Hopefully graduating in December! That’s only if I can get all of my upper year courses during the summer semester though, if not then I’ll be finishing in April of next year. I really want to finish in December though so I don’t have to worry about going into labour and having a newborn during school. How freaked out would my classmates be if my water broke in class?! Hahaha!

@ScottishMrs: I’m glad your break is doing you good! Sometimes you just need to step back and adjust before going any further. XOX Thanks for starting the new thread!!!
@missrain: FX your timing does it for you this cycle then! Do you go stir-crazy in the TWW or are you generally pretty relaxed? I’m doing well, just hanging around waiting to O and waiting for testing to start. Not much has changed over here! haha

Cycles/months trying: 8th cycle ttc
Current CD/DPO: CD23/9DPO
Chart (if you have one):
Any known issues? Nothing diagnosed.
Supplements/medications: Just prenatal vitamins and this cycle I tried drinking green tea and grapefruit juice up to O.

Cycles/months trying: 9th cycle, 10th month
Current CD/DPO: CD 29/11 DPO according to FF who has adjusted my O date a couple times. I did take a HPT this am (which I never do because it depresses me) and it was a BFN….this was before I realized my temp crashed, not sure what’s going on with that, but FF then moved me from 13 DPO to 11DPO….wtf?
Chart (if you have one): http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/august05
Any known issues? We got an SA done a month ago and the results weren’t awesome. DH is low normal for everything and abnormal for motility. Everything for me seems ok right now, but I haven’t had any real testing yet. The Dr. said it’s not impossible for us to get pg on our own, but said it might take us a long time.
Supplements/medications: Next steps? Me: prenatal, guafenisen, maca root. DH: Maca root, vitamin C, multivitamin, thinking about adding vitamins E and A.
We consulted with a fertility dr. on the phone and didn’t really get any great answers. We are going to keep trying on our own and then make an appointment in April if we don’t have any luck. (if I can stand the wait)
For fun, what are you looking forward to most this year?: Vacations!!! Going to Vegas this sunday (when AF is due) and Hawaii in April! and hopefully getting knocked up!

Cycles/months trying: 8th Cycle, 8th Month
Current CD/DPO: CD 32/ FF says 11DPO, I think I am 13DPO…. Not sure? Also my longest cycle since coming off BC was 35 days, and I wasn’t temping that month… so techinically I am “late”… Thoughts?
Chart (if you have one): http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3dd17d
Any known issues? DH’s SA was normal, my blood tests were normal, waiting for CD 1 to schedule my HSG. I am actually excited to get the ball rolling.
Supplements/medications: Next steps? Prenatal and Vit D. Thinking of trying Maca for DH… Anyone on it, does it actually make a difference?
HSG. After that and a couple more cycles we will do another SA for DH… per OBGYN’s suggestions.
For fun, what are you looking forward to most this year?: I bought our current home in 2005 when I was 21. We are going to start seriously looking for a family/forever home in the Spring!!!

I love seeing what everyone is looking forward to! So much fun stuff going on.
@MrsPuddingface: I LOVE this!!
@RoyalLime: Hmm, I looked at your chart and I really can’t say. I tend to agree with FF that O date was CD21, but FF could definitely be wrong, and only you know your body. It sounds promising so major FX for you!
