For fun: How are you going to treat yo self this month while TTC? My birthday is 3/12 (turning 36) so I’ll likely have a hefty amount of alcohol πŸ˜‚ I also love the two weeks before I ovulate because I know I’m not preggo and I can work out hard, have TWO cups of coffee, etc. so I plan to take full advantage this month!!

I’m so happy you made this board already! I thought with getting my BFN so early in the month I’d have to wait! 

I’m also so happy that DH agreed to try this month! He initially said he wanted to skip it to avoid a December baby, but he changed his mind!! Yey

TiggersMitts :  what fertility tea are you drinking? Do you think it actually does anything?

krm1984 :  sorry you’re back on the boards, let us know about your OB appointment. I’m secretly jealous because I likely won’t get a referral this early being 32 :(. Hopefully I’m pregnant by the time I hit the 1 year mark.

TiggersMitts :  thanks for starting! I just got a BFN today and it looks like AF is starting. 

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 37/47

Baby#: 2 – our boy is 17 months old 

Current Cycle Day/DPO: I am supposed to be 10-11 DPO based on a trigger shot, but I’m spotting so AF may be about to start too 

Ovulation Date: maybe 3/21 ish

POAS Date: 4/1 ish?

Usual Cycle Length: oh it’s all a mess 

Cycles Trying: I had a miscarriage 5.5 months ago – trying since then but mostly foiled by newly developed PCOS and/or hypothyroidism, with some lovely 55+ day annovulatory cycles πŸ˜’

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): probably doing the same as last month which is Femara on CD 3-7, ultrasound on CD 12 or 13 to check follicles, HCG trigger shot to stimulate ovulation, lots of well-timed sex

Trying anything new this month: going to try for at least EOD even when it seems too early or too late, until late March when I go out of town for a couple weeks for work. And this will be my first full cycle with my Tempdrop bracelet – hoping that helps confirm ovulation, even though I have to get up in the middle of the night with the little rugrat

Link to your chart if charting:

For fun: How are you going to treat yo self this month while TTC? I’m thinking a book, a bath, and some red wine sounds nice. And we are at a semi-local hot springs resort right now…. nice follow up to a BFN.
