    CD/DPO:  CD 15

    Cycles TTC/Charting:  3 TTC / 14 charting

    Age/SO’s Age:  32 / 37 

    POAS/AF Date:  TBD based on O date, but likely around March 16-17… aiming for 10-11 dpo.  Also DH goes out of town on 3/18 for almost a week, so I am hoping to know this cycle before he leaves.

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues:  Trying SMEP this cycle, and also added EPO and OPKs.  Got pregnant on our first cycle TTC in October, but had a MMC at 10 weeks.

    Random question: What would be the ideal birth month to you for your baby if you could pick for sure?  Sometime between April and July!

    Poll question:  Hard to pick, but I’d say sewing!  I also like to do paper projects but not scrapbooking… I make custom cards invitations, etc.

    Ladies, I need help figuring out my chart.  Based on OPK, CM, and CP, I’d say O was Saturday (CD 14).  But Saturday’s temp was kind of high so maybe Friday?  Today’s temp was 97.77 at 8:30, which I entered as 7:30 (to account for daylight savings).  When I adjust it to my 6am wakeup time, it’s 97.47, which seems low if O was in the last couple of days.

    I know I need to just wait for more high temps to see…. I guess it feels confusing to have all of these other signs to look at.  I am also trying to determine if we should BD again today.  We did the last 4 days so I don’t think either of us really feels like it, but if O hasn’t happened yet (per my temps) then it seems like we should.  Though based on CP I’d say it’s already happened.

    Thoughts??  Help!

    ROLL CALL!

    TTC/TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO: 3DPO

    Cycles TTC/Charting: 16/13 plus 7 month medical pause (over 23 total TTC)

    Age/SO’s Age: Me- 32 (33 the end of this month, ugh!!) DH- 39

    POAS/AF Date: March 20/21?, my LP is still not stable post lap/meds yet, but it’s getting closer

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: Severe Endo removed via 3 laps and 7 months chemically induced menopause and DH’s depression (winter sucks). Plan? Try again. I take prenatals, calcium, vitamen D, baby asprin, CoQ10, use OPKs and Preseed and drink green tea near/before O, limit caffeine after.

    Random question: What would be the ideal birth month to you for your baby if you could pick for sure? I would choose late April or early May, so that I could have both spring/summer semesters as maternity leave and not miss any work (or income). Second choice would be December or maybe late November for the same reasons, though it’s not as ideal (I’m a college professor).

    Poll question: I picked ‘Other’. My answer is none of the above. I am sooooooo not crafty. I admire folks who can do any form of art, because I am utterly incapable lol. Whether my OCD or practicality or just lack of talent I don’t know. If I could do any I’d love to learn to knit (the practical OCD freak inside me loves the idea of patterns lol), but I have fibromyalgia that makes my hands ache so bad I can barely even grade sometimes, so unfortunately that’s out.

    auggiefrog:  When you say three strand, do you mean you literally used three different skeins of yarn at the same time? i love it! I quilted a blanket for my niece (no pic!) and I made a crochet hat for my own baby one day. 🙂

    SaltedCaramel:  Based on your chart, I would say you Oed cd13! Maybe even 12… But you still had fertile CM. It’s not too uncommon to get fertile CM for a day or two after, but I think ou Oed on of those two days. I think Saturdays temp is too high to be O day.

    Aqualov:  I have actually heard that knotting and crochet can be helpful to people with arthritis and fibromyalgia (if he needles are held correctly . It’s doesn’t make sense to me, but the girl who taught me to knot teaches knitting for therapy. 🙂

    AFM, Still here!! Stalking and reading and cheering you ladies on!!! 🙂  For the poll I picked Photography because it’s my second passion/job. But for down time I prefer crochet!

    ROLL CALL!

    TTC/TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO:  CD 27/ 9DPO

    Cycles TTC/Charting: 7 Cycles TTC/ 11ish Charting

    Age/SO’s Age:  We’re both 31

    POAS/AF Date: AF is Due Thursday (3/12), I plan on testing on Wednesday (3/11) @ 12DPO

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues:  Plan: This cycle was pretty rough for me as far as planning.  I had hoped to O on CD15 or 16, and since Dh was going to be out of town all week we BD’d during the weekend.  Then I didn’t O until Friday, so we BD’d on O and O+1.  We used preseed.  Supplements: Taking Prenatals (I switched from gummies to Rainbow Light One mid cycle though), B6, D3, C, CoQ10, Evening Primrose Oil, Muccinex, Baby Asprin, Royal Jelly, and Maca powder in smoothies.  After O I cut it down to Prenatals, D3, C, CoQ10 and baby asprin.  Known Issues: Early MC in December during TTC cycle 6.

    Random question: What would be the ideal birth month to you for your baby if you could pick for sure?  This is a though question.  I think March or April because I would be enjoy the little bit of summer that we get the most both during pregnancy and with my newborn.  Sadly, that ship is past and I would be elated for a November baby!  Having a six plus month old baby during summer would be great as well.  I could set up a baby pool and it would be a lot easier getting my gardening done.   

    Poll question:  I voted other, because I love doing many of them listed!  I have a degree in Photography, and although I’m not currently pursuing a career in it I still try to shot for fun as much as possible.  I also scrapbook a bit.  I have a project 365 type scrapbook going on, except mine is monthly, and I am way behind!  I also enjoy crocheting, except I am not very good.  I sort of enjoy sculpture as well in a sense that I like making 3D objects, but I haven’t really worked on anything in a long time.  I have a bad habit of starting projects and not finishing.

    SaltedCaramel:  I think Friday is your O day as well.  based off of your temps and your OPK’s.

    FreckledFox:  Yes, the blanket used three different colors of yarn.  I used a ‘N’ hook to crochet the blanket.  For the edging I used three strings of the same color to keep the thickness.  The hat is adorable!  I wish I could crochet 3-D objects.  I’m lazy and stay with the flat, square projects though.

    Random question: What would be the ideal birth month to you for your baby if you could pick for sure? I had DD in May and I loved that. Great weather for getting out to walk, especially because as a newborn it was the best way to get her to sleep when she wouldn’t. I also think early fall would be great because by the time summer rolled around, they’d be old enough to take to the park for the baby swings, or to just crawl around/sit in the grass.

    Poll question: I picked other. I love making Halloween costumes, but my sewing sucks. I don’t use patterns but they always come out great. If you looked on the inside though, the finishing is terrible! I also love paper projects (like cards) and random crafts. And baking (that can be a crafty things, right?). I used to draw a lot but not so much now.

    AFM, still waiting on O. I was going to take another OPK but somehow have very diluted pee. All I had is one coffee today, so that’s odd. I think I’m going to have to suck up the fact that I have a possible UTI, and BD anyway, as I mentioned at the end of the last thread. Too Much Information time: I was walking up from the lake by my house and thought I had peed myself (as a symptom of my UTI…I don’t normally pee myself haha!) but when I went to the bathroom it was the most EWCM I have ever saw! I think I have only had EWCM once or twice but never like that! I think the extra EPO I was taking paid off! O would be great tomorrow if only so I can take a break from BD while my UTI clears up.
