Your age/partner’s age: 30/32

Baby #: One

Current cycle day/DPO: CD7

Ovulation date: Predicted CD9

POAS date: 3 April

Usual cycle length: 22

Cycles trying: Three (but first on the boards)

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): BBT, OPK, BD every second day, CM charting.

Trying anything new this month? BBT and OPK.

For fun: What’s your favorite TV show? Or any new show(s) you’ve been into lately? My favourite TV show is Westworld and lately I’ve watched Wandavision and am finishing up season two of The Umbrella Academy. Sci Fi is my go to genre, then fantasy and superhero shows. I’m an escapist!

 

My background is that I had my final depo provera shot in January last year. I was meant to get one more in April as we were meant to be doing a seven week Europe trip but, you know, Covid happened. So I ended up coming off in January but didn’t have a period until February (seriously, never go on depo if you think you’ll want to ttc quickly after). Since then I’ve had a 13!?! day cycle and a 22 day cycle. I’m using OPK and BBT to try figure out if I’m even ovulating, but I am making EWCM and I am getting progesterone symptoms like incredible tender breasts, they seriously hurt. I’m also making LH (even if my OPKs are faint, which is good because depo inhibits its production). I had a miscarriage seven years ago when I was on BC so I know we were fertile once. We’ll see how we go now we’re a bit older!

My OPKs are still very negative (taking twice a day). Because I have such irregular cycles I may need to adjust my POAS day. Happy I’m not ovulating on CD 9 this month though! Apparently this isn’t enough time for the eggs to mature to their healthiest state (although some ladies do conceive when they O this early).

I really just want to know I’m ovulating 🙁

Your age/partner’s age: 36/43

Baby #: 2

Current cycle day/DPO: cd18 

Ovulation date: tomorrow, cd19, 3/27!  Just got a positive OPK today!

POAS date: 4/8 or maybe 4/9

Usual cycle length: pre-IUD and birth of my toddler, about 32 days.  Now, who knows.  

Cycles trying: 3.  Had a chemical pregnancy in January, which was also my first postpartum ovulation.

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): My cycles haven’t regulated yet due to the chemical pregnancy in January and also newly getting my cycle back postpartum and weaning my toddler.  Last month ovulated on cd25, very annoying.  This month we decided to go every other day starting cd8 until positive OPK, then a few days in a row.  

Trying anything new this month? See above.

For fun: What’s your favorite TV show? Or any new show(s) you’ve been into lately? This is going to sound lame, but we have been watching old seasons of the Amazing Race on Amazon Prime and have been having so much fun with it.  We watch an episode almost every night after we put our toddler to bed.

I am 2DPO today and I am trying my best not to symptom spot. The TWW struggle is real!

Definitely doesn’t look like I’ve O’d yet but this morning’s LH was a little darker so hopefully it’s coming in the next 24 hours! Would be stoked if I’ve evened out to closer to a 28 day cycle!

@marigold135:  my app is currently telling me I’m 3dpo and I know that’s going to tempt me into POAS way too early 🙃
