What is primrose oil?  I haven’t heard of that! But willing to try anything haha.  This will be my first cycle trying Mucinex so we will see how it goes.  I plan to start a few days before ovulation!

Your age/partner’s age: 29/29

Baby #: 2, we have a March 2018 girl ๐Ÿ™‚

Current Cycle Day/DPO: Ugh…1.  AF wasn’t due until Friday so I thought I was still in the running for November but she showed up today 5 days early and WITH A VENGANCE.

Ovulation Date: Unsure, I don’t temp and I used to chart CM but my body is out of whack since baby #1.

POAS Date: 12/15ish

Usual Cycle Length: 25-30 days

Cycles Trying: Technically #2, but November was a wash because Darling Husband was on a work trip the entire week I was supposed to be ovulating.

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): timing and prenatals (I never stopped taking them since baby #1 lol)

Trying anything new this month? Just timing and not letting hubby leave for a week again haha

Do you plan to find out the sex? For sure. We did the Natera genetic testing at 10 weeks last time and plan to again if we are lucky enough to have a second baby.

What’s your favorite holiday movie? ELF 10000%

coffeelvr45 :  Thanks!! Thats tough–I’d have a hard time not doing any charting too. I stopped temping before TTC since I learned my cycle well so just use OPKs now, but I know it’d drive me crazy to not use them. I hope whatever you decide leads to a more relaxed FW for you!

dingomamma :  it’s a dietary supplement with lots of omega 6 fatty acids and vitamin E. Prior to starting EPO, I never had any fertile CM. Only sticky or creamy. No I have really watery CM during FW. I usually take one pill at night from cd1-10 and then 2 pills from cd 11-16. Shouldn’t be taken after O. Also, this stuff helps with my PMS and lightens AF! No weird taste or after taste. Love it.

jz0909 :  thank you! I think I might just do OPKs and not temp. I guess I really don’t need to do either since we plan to do EOD in my FW, which starts tomorrow!

For the past three cycles we have been during ED so wanted to switch it up. Anyone ever get a BFP w/ EOD?

Guess I have no need to stress over trying to BD during Thanksgiving at my family’s house because there’s been a drastic change in plans and we will be local now. Atleast that takes away the stress of Sneaking around lol

coffeelvr45 :  I’m the opposite, my stress is ramping up. I’m going to be with Darling Husband till Thanksgiving but then fly out early Friday morning to be with my family till Monday and I’m starting to get nervous I’m not going to O before I leave. Fingers crossed it all works out!

Rolling over today after a weird cycle that kept getting my hopes up. I turn 34 in early December… on the plus side now I can go ahead with cocktail party plans for my birthday and enjoy a celebratory dinner out with my husband at an awesome restaurant with delicious tartare.  Win some, lose some I guess. A BFP right before Christmas would make me SO happy, but I also anticipate awkwardness around holiday drinking with our families if I’ve JUST found out and am not ready to share the news. 

Your age/partner’s age: 33/34 (but I’ll be 34 by my POAS date!)

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: 1

Ovulation Date: probably around Dec 4

POAS Date: December 20th-ish

Usual Cycle Length: unclear — 28-33?

Cycles Trying: 3

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): temping, charting, timing

Trying anything new this month? going to try to pay more attention to CM this month

Do you plan to find out the sex? not sure!

For fun: What’s your favorite holiday movie? I’m not a big holiday movies person, but probably Little Women? Or perhaps my obscure childhood favourite, Babar’s Christmas?

marigold135 :  I would say it’s positive. I usually stop taking OPKs once I get a clear negative but some ppl stop once they get their positive.
