So glad there’s an April POAS up now!! πŸ™‚

Roll call!

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD16 today.

Ovulation Date: Predicted to be CD18, but we’ll see!

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Cycle length is 30 days, I’ll be POAS April 4th (or 14dpo).

Cycles Trying: BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): 5th cycle TTC, 3rd cycle charting.

Link to Chart, if any: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/mrstea83

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC? DH and I are planning a trip to Tennessee this weekend, and we’re probably going to try a beer tasting within the next couple weeks. We have been focusing on getting our house ready to put on the market, and it’s been fun cleaning and doing projects to improve the home. 

And for fun:

What’s your favourite movie, and why?

<br />You’ve Got Mail. I love it, and there’s really no explanation for it. It’s the only movie I can watch over, and over, and over again and never get tired of it. Plus, Tom Hanks.

Roll call!

Current Cycle Day/DPO:CD 13

Ovulation Date:  No sign of O yet…..Expecting it hopefully this weekend, it would make BD a lot easier πŸ™‚

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length:  April 4th for now, cycle varies between 25-31 days usually.

Cycles Trying: BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.):  Cycle #4 – EDD would be the day after my birthday (based on LMP), so hoping this is our monnth even though I always said I wouldn’t want my child to be born that time of year.  DH and I are born within a week of each other, so it would be fitting!

Link to Chart, if any:  Just started charting and I think I’m doing it wrong

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC?   Getting ready for vaca at the end of April, can’t wait, I’m so over the cold this winter.

And for fun:

What’s your favourite movie, and why?  40 Year Old Virgin….very funny

NowandLater:  I drink at least 2 cups a day.  I have a small teapot that makes a little over 3 cups so I make it at night and let it seep for at least 5 minutes and drink one cup.  Then in the morning I drink another cup.  Some times I have another cup when I get home from work.  How many cycles have you been drinking Fertilitea while TTC?

MrsBaldEagle:  I started in Dec 2013, so about 3 months. Starting with the first month of drinking it, my cycle has been ranging 34-35, so I definitely think it’s helping. I’m also supplementing with acupuncture to regulate my cycle. This month marks 10th cycle of TTC, but I was diagnosed with hypothroidism late Dec. FX for you and sending you happy thoughts!!

Wow there in an April POAS already! I was thinking I would POAS in early April, but thankfully I ovulated earlier than expected, but unfortanately our timing wasn’t good at all thanks to a trip we had. Now I am expecting AF to show up near the end of March. So, my next POAS will be in May. I just want to wish everyone a happy BFP!!

I am so behind on the March boards So wishing all those girls luck and transferring over here!

Roll call!

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 10<br />

Ovulation Date: Somewhere between CD 17-20, I think my average is CD 19

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: I think I will POAS on DPO 10 because I’m the most impatient person ever, based on my average I will say April 7.  Planning on using OPKs this time around so if I might need to tweek it by a day or 2

Cycles Trying: This is cycle 3<br />

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): I am going to try Mucinex this time around and OPKs as well.  Aiming to hit at least 3 days in my fertile window, I’d be happy with that, our schedules makes it difficult as we work night shift and don’t have the same schedule πŸ™

Link to Chart, if any: Not charting<br />

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC? Put in another offer on a house, find out this week if we get it, so therefore April would consist of painting the new home and moving! Actually looking forward to that as we will have a much bigger space!

And for fun:

What’s your favourite movie, and why? Practical Magic is my all time favorite, Knocked Up is my turn to movie to lift my mood and make me laugh! and finally I’m currently loving Water for Elephants.

 

I am just LOVING the idea of a Christmas baby.  Initially DH wanted to skip this month and I was hoping and praying to avoid a December baby, but now I can’t get the idea out of my head.  Christmas is such a special time for my family, as an only child I have the best memories with my parents and I on Christmas morning every year, just us 3, eating See’s chocolates on the couch for breakfast, and staying in PJs all day.  It would be a beautiful month to welcome a child that will be oh so loved!  Gosh, now I’m crying girls… this TTC stuff has me an emotional wreck 24/7!

phoebephoebo:  That’s true! Okay! I will too!

HALF ROLLING OVER! =) I probably wouldn’t have a positive by my current POAS date, because it will only be 9 or 10 DPO at that point (March 31).

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD12

Ovulation Date: CD13 or 14 (Positive OPK today)

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Usually Cycle Length: April 4th! Cycle length is about 26 days, give or take 1 day.

Cycles Trying: This is cycle 2!

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): We BD’d A LOT this cycle! Once a day since CD6, without skipping. I started using a different brand of OPKs, so I didn’t want to miss a good day. πŸ˜‰ But we have been trying to leave 24 hours between. I am also laying down for 20-30 minutes afterwards. I’m taking Prenatals and Mucinex this cycle. LOTS of water! No soda, just one cup of coffee in the morning. That is my only caffeine in the day. I’m getting really active, because I am not usually. I want to either walk or swim once a day for about 30-45 minutes. I just joined a local recreation center! In addition to the lap swimming pool, they have a lazy river. I just went yesterday for the first time..and felt like a little kid! It was fun! 

Link to Chart, if any: I just started temping the proper way this cycle. I am using OPKs, but want to confirm that I actually ovulated. <br />

I think i’ll wait until charting tells me I’ve O’d to roll call properly as my cycles have been messed up :/

A gross question for anyone who can share – it’s only my 2nd month ttc – prior we used condoms a bc.  We bd usually pm so i hold until am BUT i feel that somehow it’s all coming out rather than hanging around inside! if you get my drift…. is this normal?? Does *some* of it stay up there?

Nic01:  I don’t mind answering! Do you hold your pee until the morning, after BD? I just ask because I’m prone to urinary tract infections and women can get them from not peeing after sex. Yes, some will come out. A little even while laying down. I think they say that it could help to stay laying down for 20-30 minutes after BD so it doesn’t all come out quickly. That’s what in doing. But after that, however many little dudes made it up there are probably most that would have. πŸ˜‰ But yeah, I feel like a lot of it comes out for me too when I use the restroom afterwards.

MrsAlice:  thanks of your response – completely understand anyone not wanting to !

I hold pee until the following am after BD. But just lying there (i don’t get up) -my natural muscles contract or something – it feels like it’s gushing. I’ve actually gone to putting some tissues in my undies :/

Maybe I’m being a princess & this is what it’s all about! lol
