- Wedding: October 2016
Officially rolling over to April.
Your age/partner’s age: 32/37
Baby #: #1 me/ #3 him
Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD1
Ovulation Date: ~4/29 of so
POAS Date: Probaby 4/12 if I ovulate within my normal window; It might be a little early, but I leave town on 4/13 for about a week so I will want to test while I’m home with DH
Usual Cycle Length: 28-29 days
Cycles Trying: 4
BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Charting, prenatals, Digital OPKs; dropping the RRL this month, I don’t think it’s doing anything
Trying anything new this month? Adding in the OPKs to try to narrow down the window so DH doesn’t feel pressured for quite so long. Using the Clearblue digital because trying to read the paper ones would stress me out too much and I don’t want more stress.
Link to your chart if charting: Don’t have a link
For Fun: Are you looking foward to Spring? Anything fun planned? I was invited to speak at a national conference that is highly respected in my field and I am doing that in April, so I am very excited and also SUPER nervous on that. I am focusing on that this month instead of the up and down of TTC!
Deleted, wrong thread!
Your age/partner’s age: 35/35
Baby #: 1
Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD6
Ovulation Date: Maybe somewhere between CD16 and CD 19 (March 25th – 28th.)
POAS Date: TBD
Usual Cycle Length: If I remove the outlier cycles then my average is 30. Last month was a return to normalcy after 4 lengthier cycles and I am hoping this trend continues! After 35, 45, 47 and 41 day cycles – I started RRL and O’d on CD18 with a 30 day cycle.
Cycles Trying: 9 trying. 3 NTNP. CP last June in our 4th consecutive cycle trying.
BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Charting, Mucinex, RRL, more BD.
Trying anything new this month? It’s not new to me but I’m going to return to acupuncture for the first time since the fall.
Your age/your partner’s age 33/34
Baby# Our 2nd, my 4th
Current cycle day: 1
Ovulation Date: around March 29th
POAS Date: around April 12th
Usual Cycle Length: right about 30 days, but last month 35
Cycles Trying: This is only the second, but we know there’s a problem.
BFP Plan: I’m on progestrone to induce ovulation, OPKs, charting with Ovia
Trying anything new this month: More baby dancing, last month we baby danced on the day I got a positive opk and the next two days and apparently that wasn’t good enough. I wish I could temp, but my schedule is so varied that it won’t work.
For Fun: Definitely looking forward to spring. I’m hosting Easter this year, so that will be a good distraction. On the good news side, I was trying to figure out how to explain not drinking wine on Easter and now I don’t have to.
I lurk a lot, but haven’t had the courage to post. After AF started today, I really needed anonymous people to talk to. There’s a good chance I was in tears today over potentially ruining Christmas by being in the hospital, but I’m also afraid to go over into 2019 and have to pay two insurance deductibles.
For what it’s worth, ladies – I’m a December baby (and so is my sister) and we have zero complaints. Our family did an excellent job keeping our birthdays and Christmas separate. No Merry Birthday or Happy Christmas gifts! I may have occassionally missed out on a school class celebration because of the holiday but, honestly, I can’t remember so it obviously wasn’t too shattering to my psyche. The house was decorated and cozy and full of love, anticipation and excitement and, to this day, the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas remain my favorite weeks of the year. Christmas babies for everyone! 😉
our age/partner’s age: 38/30
Baby #: 1
Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD12
Ovulation Date: App says March 18th, we’ll see
POAS Date: Maybe April 1st, would be a funny day to get a positive! But we’ll see.
Usual Cycle Length: All over the place 22 days, 54 days….struggling with this
Cycles Trying: 6th month, only had AF 3 times during that time period though
BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Charting, SMEP, Digital OPK, prenatals. Waiting list for OB/GYN (need a referral in my country)
Trying anything new this month? OPK for the first time, waited for AF to have an idea of where I might be at.
For Fun: Heading to New Orleans in April for work, hoping to get the “Yes +” on the OPK before then
Well, here we are so far! Let me know if any POAS date changes or if I’m missing anyone. Will be updating the board frequently.
