ShellVee:  Oh the heck with it, I’m in. I am actually doing blood work this month to make sure I’m ovulating, and got a positive OPK this morning (a week before I used to — hopefully this means my cycles are shortening up and not that it’s a false positive).

Roll call!

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD14

Ovulation Date: 3/22 (CD 15)

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: 4/5, I have irregular cycles, this is the earliest I’ve had a positive after a possible chemical last month. 

Cycles Trying: BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Cycle #7, been trying on and off since last September. Plan is: Doing eet. Plus I take multivitamins and OPK’s.

Link to Chart, if any: N/A

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC? We have the first of three weddings in three months starting in April. Looking forward to seeing friends get hitched, and dancing with my babe.

And for fun:

What’s your favourite movie, and why? A Walk to Remember. I love a lot of higher quality movies but this one makes me cry like a baby every time. Oh Mandy Moore.

OPK question!  Did my first today, lost track of time and I’m already CD12!  It was very close to the same color/darkness as the control line, definitely not positive but my question is, I’m not anticipating a positive until closer to CD16-18, as my cycles have been 30-34 days… do they get darker leading to a positive, or can they be pretty dark every day and it doesn’t mean anything?  Does that make sense?  I am using FMU and testing once a day.  Also, the box says a positive means ovulation is 24-48 hours away (maybe it said 24-36 but still)?  So would that mean I definitely have all day to BD?? Thanks for any help girls!

fridaythe13bride:  mine definitely get darker leading up to my positive and then after the surge they lighten. if i have one close to positive and i test like 4 hrs later its usually positive. Thats why they say to test twice a day. I tested once a day this cycle and totally missed it. I would definitely BD today and tomorrow. I usually O the following day of a positive. .

April2013Girl: Based on my previous chart I’d say Friday. I would’ve beforehand said the Thursday but FF got my crosshairs to be on the second up from the lowest temperature. It is a minefield though.

Should O around Monday. I am feeling way less stressed than last month. I guess I had my hopes really set on getting a BFP first try, and now I just dodn’t mind if it takes a few times. I had a great time the past two weeks that I would have missed out on if I was pregnant, so whatever. Tested for O today and the line is deffinitly getting there. Been BDing ED since Thursday. A December baby would be pretty cool!

Well I was in the Waiting to TTC boards and had an original date of October to start. Then DH kept texting me baby names and asking me when I was ready to get pregnant, that he wanted to be a dad, etc. (Seriously, I could not resist the cuteness of those texts/conversations) this led to us moving up the TTc date to April. Well when I looked at my app that roughly predicts my cycle, turned out we sort of had an oops moment TWICE during my fertile week. (It’s barely an oops really, since we were talking about moving our TTc date up but we will just say this wasn’t planned)   ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

so I decided to throw my name in this month. I’ve been stalking the feb and March poas boards already so I may as well participate since it’s a possibility this cycle. Plus my POAS date is DHs birthday and if I get a squinter I’d want your opinions before I told him for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚ I know, cart before the horse. but what a good birthday present!

 

Roll call!

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 15/1 DPO

Ovulation Date: probably March 22nd? My app is usually right so I assume that my O date is fairly average every time

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: April 3rd, 27/28 days 

Cycles Trying: BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): first cycle that it’s possible, have started a multivitamin with folic acid and BD twice in my FW

Link to Chart, if any: not charting yet

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC? 

just live life right now. We are hanging out with friends, I just started a new job, we have a new townhome, everything is great right now

And for fun:

What’s your favourite movie, and why?

i LOVE The Fountain, with Hugh Jackman. It’s one I can watch over and over again and everything about it is just so beautiful and deep.

ShellVee:  thanks for much for replying! I have been debating asked the question & when i finally got the courage to ask it the hive seemed like the best place – odd right? but thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

 

A side vent, found out today that SIL will be trying for her second in June for a baby in March. She got pg with her first by looking at her husband. Not sure why it’s upset me so much. Possibly pressure to get KU before June? I have this feeling that should we be pg together she’ll be telling me all the ‘right & wrong’ things to do. I also want to go through it along NOT with her. Childish I know. end vent.

Just got solid crosshairs for Thursday. That means I am 3dpo today. We had such great BD timing this month that if it doesn’t work for us this time I’m going to be seriously bummed out And don’t know what else to do diffeenetly. This is our 6th cycle TTC. All my fingers and toes are crossed. 

Confession…. I’m sooooo hoping this is our month I just checked my horoscope hoping it would tell me something amazing will happen in the next two weeks ahhhh I’m crazy! LOL!!!!!!!!!! 

OH and yesterday DH and I bought our first family SUV. Now I just need a new baby to put in the back seat. I’m so excited! He was the one really pushing me to get it. I love how he wants a baby as bad as I do!

ShellVee:  ok. I just have to add that what we’ve talking about is reffered to as ‘flow back’ did you know that??

AND apparently should you orgasim either 2 minute before or 45 minutes after ejaculation it improved sperm retention- the things one googles :/
