I love the title!!!
Current Cycle Day: CD15
Ovulation Date: I suspect it will be on or around March 29
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: April 8, though I will try to hold off until April 10-12 since my LP seems to be lengthening and the BFN have been difficult to deal with.
Cycles trying: #3, but it feel like longer since we have been planning on TTC for one year now.
BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc): sex, prenatals, fish oil, yoga (for relaxation), green tea, red raspberry leaf tea, OKPs, pre-seed, temping, BD daily the week of O.
Link to Chart, if any: I now have a FF account, will link on Monday (I forgot my password)
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?: I was a giant nerd so I wanted to be either a lawyer or a librarian. Turned out to be a dietitian and love it.
The novelity is wearing off, but I’m really glad to be going through this with you ladies! I’m going to try not to symptom spot this month, anyone want to join me (I may need some reminders)?
Post # 9
@KH: I will take you up on that offer! NO sympom spotting. i am turning a blind eye to my body signs, because clearly I can’t read them & I am not testing until I miss AF I didn’t like seeing the BFN
Post # 10
Current Cycle Day: 17
Ovulation Date: FF says march 28th
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: TBD. My last cycle was my first off BC and it was 36 days, but I am not sure yet if it is normal For me. I think if AF doesn’t come I will be POAS around April 15th
Cycles trying: this is our first actually trying
BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc): we have been BDing lots, we figured we’d try for at least every other day starting from a few days before I would be likely to O if my cycle got shorter this month, charting BBT, taking prenatals
Link to Chart, if any:
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?: a Psychiatrist. I am going to be a registerEd psychologist so I guess I wasn’t too far off 🙂

@MrsHoneyC: LDTTC buddy! Think timing is going to work out for you and Darling Husband this month?
@rosworms: Hefty goals for a middle schooler! I don’t think I even knew there was such a thing as a quantum physicist until college! And truck driver vs broadway star – those are two very different career paths!
@KH: I’m a horrible symptom spotter! I’ll try to follow your lead though!
@Utopia4us: Congrats on your first month TTC! Hopefully you’re one and done!
Post # 12
- Wedding: March 2012 - Father's Vineyard Church/ A Touch of Class Banquet Center
Current Cycle Day: I’m on CD9!
Ovulation Date: FF says 3/29, I’m thinking though it’s a little off and will probably be 3/27 or 3/28. But this is my first cycle actually temping and using OPKs so hopefully I will be able to nail it down!
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: POAS date will probably be 4/10 if I can’t wait for missed AF. My cycle length is usually between 28-30 days…depends on the cycle.
Cycles trying: This is our 11th cycle since the beginning of our journey, our 8th actively trying, with one loss in 06/2012.
BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc): Our plan is to BD EOD at the very least, if not every day!

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?: I really wanted to be a lawyer or Secretary of State. I was (and still am) a huge political nerd.

@bananasareyellow: thanks! If Darling Husband doesn’t manage to get me KO this month, I’ll be in a similar boat as you guys when he goes on a 24:4 rotation for the summer… Fx for good timing to LDTTC! Not looking forward to it if I end up there… I foresee some BDing in crappy hotels in remote areas of northern AB… Do you guys ever travel to make BD timing work?
Post # 14
@Utopia4us: LDTTC sucks! I hope you can avoid it! My Darling Husband and I don’t make plans around my FW schedule – it’s too unpredictable at this point to plan ahead. We get to see each other one week a month, and we just do it like rabbits and hope it works out. 😉 Luckily, our LDTTC time will come to an end in May when Darling Husband moves here for good, so if April isn’t our month, I have that to look forward to! What’s a 24:4 rotation? 24 days away, 4 days home? At least it’s for only a few months – if the timing doesn’t work out, good news is that you’ll have a few solid months of charting under your belt, get your body time to regulate after getting off BC, and will have an excellent shot of getting KU’d when you can time BDing perfectly this fall! FX for you!

@MrsHoneyC: I’m pinky swearing with you! All “symptoms” will be attributed to PMS, and no testing until AF is late.
@bananasareyellow: If you ever need help with symptom spotting, just let me know. I’ll happily explain how any symptom is probably progesterone fueled.
Anyone have any good plans or tips to distract through the TWW? We gave up TV for lent, so I plan on catching up on some shows (the only one I actually really miss is Scandle, though).

@bananasareyellow: that’s exciting for you! It is 24 on 4 off, occasionally he gets to work the 24 on close enough to home that he can come home at night though. that is true, I will probably have a better idea of my cycle by the winter, but we also don’t want me to be mega preggers when he is so far away, so we are trying to time the Baby being due with November-April when he is home. Guess we’ll see how that works out! I am hoping he will get a different job after this summer!
