I will be (hope to be) POAS in August! I am new to the boards and this is our first month TTC.  I don’t have high hopes that this will be the month – but you never know.  No one knows we are TTC except you bees.  I don’t feel comfortable telling my family (my sister recently suffered a loss at 23 weeks) so hoping this will be a way to express my concerns, receive advice, and wish for baby dust for everyone!  

A little about my cycle: CD1 for me was July 19th and I had my period for five days.  Fertility Friends says I should be ovulating next week.  I don’t chart or take my temp – but I did just start doing OPK’s just to find out if I am ovulating and if so when. I did OPK yesterday and today – both negative, however it is early in my cycle to already be ovulating.

I hope to POAS in August! This will be our first cycle ttc after our July 1st miscarriage. So POAS in August is based on AF coming on time (Aug. 1st?), which I’m told is definitely not always the case post miscarriage….

Anyway, hope to see lots of BFP’s around these parts!

@Mrs. Jaguar:  I’m super duper rooting for you! FX!

I hope, I hope, I hope I will be POAS in August! I have long irregular cycles so who knows..?
This will be our first cycle of actively TTC. We got married on July 7th and have had unprotected sex since then but I have no idea when I ovulate so I really dont think we have a shot for this cycle….. So now I am just waiting for AF and hoping she comes soon so I can join you ladies in August! 

Good Luck everyone!!!!

@MrsApple414:  We are in the same boat, no one knows we are TTC, so I reserve all my crazyness for the hive!

Hey everyone!!!

I am also just beginning and going to start officially charting in August, although I have charted somewhat in July. We aren’t TTC but we aren’t not trying to either, I hope it is OK to post here! I am getting use to all the acronyms and such and this seems like a great thread to help me understand and get involved.

I have signed up for my fertility friend so that I can get a running ahead start on all of this!

@Sea_bass:  Do you find it hard to keep it a secret?  I’m super close my my family so it’s killing me and we only just began! BUT – I know it’s better this way if that makes any sense.

@MrsApple414:  OMG yes! I speak to my Mom everyday and she is always at our place. I super close to my Dad too and siblings! Its so so so hard. However, my Mom would basically be the most excited person on earth if she knew we were TTC and she would basically be on my case about it 24/7 which I don’t need so for now even she doesn’t know! 
Also, she can be a bit militant about how healthy she was during all our conceptions/birth so if she thought I was even TTC and saw me with a glass wine she would lecture me to near death… So I will keep it between DH and me so I dont have to deal with any judgements (at least until I fall pregnant, then I fully expect her to take over my diet/life!)

I’ll be POASing on Saturday but if it’s a BFN and no AF, I’ll be testing again in August. Unfortunately, if AF does show up, that means my cycles are only getting longer and longer as time goes on and I’ll likely miss the calendar month of August altogether. Booooo! Still holding out some hope for July though…

Also, this past cycle was our first for TTC and like many of you, no one in my “real” life knows. This is my only place to get the crazies out!

@Sea_bass:  Good to see you here as well!!!

I am expectign AF according to Fertility Friend on Aug 3, although I am just beginning charting and think it may be a few days after that, we have had plenty of unprotected BD’s but I am not sure when I O’ed.

There are months that I very clearly O’ed due to discharge, but I don’t see that every month? I am very regular with periods though.

I’ll be POAS on Sunday. I don’t have high hopes so I’ll probably be seeing all you ladies in August! It’ll be my first full month of TTC and charting so I have my fingers crossed. Woo hoo!

@daybyday:  Haha no one in my real life know about our plans either and my DH doesn’t want to know all the details so I’m so glad I can get all my crazyness out with you guys! Smile
