Hey bees! looking for opinions….
So FI and I are going on our honeymoon in Oct. My FW was scheduled to close the end of Sept and re-open later in Oct. So the plan was to start trying later in Oct after we get back because I wouldn’t want to be prego during our honeymoon vacation. While we are away I am sure we will be having drinks. Recently my cycle lenghtened from 23/24 days to about 27 days. So now my FW will actually be open while we are on Vacation! I would ovulate on the 2nd or 3rd day of our 7 night stay.
So what would you do? would you start trying while your there? I know chances are that we wont actually get KU on our first try but is it taking a risk? I know some people say that there is no risk before implantation but how long does that take to happen… So many people get pregnant and don’t even know they are.
I briefly spoke to my doctor about when we are ready to TTC and she said don’t get caught up in all the timing and charting until you start having problems. She said live your life as you would and have lots of fun sex and it will happen on its own lol I was kind of shocked but that was her outlook on it all.
I need some help… am I crazy to even consider this? am I over thinking it? Should we just have fun sex and forget about all the rest? lol

I’d try, and keep drinking. I tried in the days leading up to our wedding, and therefore was in the two week wait on honeymoon. I still drank, but not excesively. As I was away for longer, I tested from 9DPO just in case too, as i would have stopped drinking if a test had been positive.
I wasn’t pregnant, but i did get pregnant the following month, it can happen quickly! I was charting, as we wanted it happen as soon as possible and felt it gave us a little control and at least we were doing what we could. I charted for 5 months (from when i came off the pill, but used condoms) and found it fascinating!

I’d say go ahead and try on your honeymoon. Our first cycle trying my fertile window was during my honeymoon and we tried! I, however, did stop drinking but I decided to stop drinking about a month before trying just as precaution. I know many people that say its ok to drink while youre trying though as its too early to affect baby. So I think you’re in the clear for trying on your honeymoon…itll make it even more fun! 😉
Just fyi…I didnt get pregnant that month, but did from the very next month. I did chart right from the beginning..I think it helped and it didnt stress me or hubby out or make it less fun.

Yeah I have been tracking and watching all the signs for some time now. On the day that we leave to come back from our vacation I would be 6 DPO so it would be still almost a week after that before I could test.

@missstarling: we are TTC on honeymoon in October, too.
i have my annual GYN appt in 2 weeks, i have a ton of questions.
i signed up for fertilityfriend but only put in AF, not temping yet.
AF is expected to come the day after the wedding. so looking like no BD the first 5 days of the honeymoon. after that, we will be working on it hard.
just have fun and see what happens.
