@Mrs. Doily:  When I used OPKs before last cycle, I got my positive around CD11 and 12, then last cycle I had an HSG done, so when I used OPK it gave a + at CD14 15, which was odd for me, so now this cycle Im not using OPKs, maily cause I just didnt get around to buy them again, so Im just going with my CM analysis, and FF put my O at CD10….so FF is either right this time and I was always wrong or, FF is simply just off, so Im trying not to think too much of it, at this point.  Im just going to wait and see what happens.  FX for you too, dear, How are you feeling?

@MrsHoneyC:  When I first started to TTC I used to elevate my hip and legs for about 10 minutes, then when nothing was happening, I simply stopped it.  Now, I just go on with my life after BD, like I go to the bathroom to pee or even take a shower afterwards.  I figure if its gonna happen it will happen….but who knows maybe im wrong hee hee…

Anyone else feel like they are in a TTC funk? Maybe it’s because DH is still at work & doesn’t get home until next Thursday. And just trying to wrap my brain around it all, and it’s hard not to think about it when I get texts from my husband saying he is so excited to be a dad…. Knowing that my body might not be able to make that dream happen for us. Well it makes me sad.

This is the cycle Jenny Renny told me I would be KU

@KH:  ugh, im sorry the experience was kind of brutal! I’m glad it’s over.  For us it is every 6 years so at least the next one is pretty far off! (It’s funny to think about where we’ll be in 6 years too…hopefully i’ll be a working mom, so crazy!)

@MrsR4ever:  i didnt know you were a dancer! I danced my whole life but had to scale back considerably after a serious ankle injury.  Do you still dance recreationally? It is my greatest passion in life ๐Ÿ™‚ it does sound like your FF is being loco, i doubt you’ve been wrong all this time!

@MrsR4ever:  This is now cycle 11 (8 actively trying) and I am getting super anxious now, which I know is the WORST thing I can do for my body. Especially now that all my basic tests have come back normal, I know that I should just relax and let God’s will do it’s thing, but it still sucks to just be in this limbo every month. First you wait to O, then you do the TWW, then if it’s a BFP you wait for AF to get over with so you can do the whole cycle again. It’s so incredibly draining, and it gets more and more so after each passing cycle. Sigh. I am just praying for a Christmas baby.

@esqbee:  Seeing you write “everyday BD” makes me tired…good luck!  HAVE FUN!

@MrsHoneyC:  BD’ing makes me have to pee, maybe it’s just routine due to past issues with UTI’s, so I usually run to pee right after.  I have heard yes and no to your question- but to lay elevated for a few minutes isn’t a big deal and might be worth it since nothing bad can come from it (watch now you will hav triplets!)

@MrsHoneyC:  I lay there for about 10 minutes, legs together. I’ve been told laying on my side with my legs closed is the best option.  I have chronic UTIs so I can’t hold it longer than 10 mins.

@aliciapdx:  haha! Well, we aim for it, there are times we are just too tired, but we usually find the energy ๐Ÿ˜‰ last month was a particularly  busy and stressful one, so we slacked a bit after my + opk, and it turned out i didn’t O until 2 weeks later!  So no slacking after a + opk this month, gotta keep it up!  ๐Ÿ™‚

@bananasareyellow:  well I decided instead of sitting around feeling gloomy & sad about our TTC situation I am going to try something new. So I went and bought an ovulation predictor kit and going to try that this this month. It was expensive but it gives me good practice peeing on something I guess

( plus I won’t be using them on our honeymoon next month & after may then DH won’t be around for my FW until September so I decided to go all out this month.)

Decided to go with the digital kind as I am not good with the squinter OPKs sticks haha. Anyways that’s my updaTe of the dAY.hope everyone’s having a nice day. Xo
