Thanks for starting this! I saw it last night and it gave me something to look forward to with AF rolling around 🙂 I still can’t figure out how to get rid of the green highlight on my phone lol

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 29/31

Baby #: 1 … But now that I can’t answer the question “do you have kids” without sounding sad I’m telling anyone who asks that I have two (dog and cat) haha

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD1 and the cramps are real

Ovulation Date: Going with Nov 29 based on FF friend

POAS Date: Dec 13 … I’ll be with my family then so should be interesting!

Usual Cycle Length: Avg 33 days but varies

Cycles Trying: 3

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Charting in FF friend, prenatals, OPKs, magnesium, vit D, using preseed if we need it, healthy low carb diet

Trying anything new this month? I think I’m going to go ahead and start CoQ10, also I’m thinking maybe we should do every other day BDing during FW and a bit after my temp rise just to cover our grounds. Also having my husband take vitamins from the “one a day” couples pack.

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 35/36

Baby #: 2

Current Cycle Day/DPO: 29, AF was due yesterday or today but looks like I might have O’d late this month.

Ovulation Date: Around November 25, but we’re NTNP this cycle. This was supposed to be our last NTNP before we started fully tracking and timing, but we’ll be going through a major life-change with my husband’s job next spring as I mentioned in the Nov POAS thread, so I’m taking the next couple weeks to figure out where we’ll land financially. If all will be well then we’ll keep NTNP this cycle, if not we’ll probably have to put TTC on hold.

POAS Date: Around December 4-5th at the earliest.

Usual Cycle Length: 29 days now

Cycles Trying: 3 NTNP

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): NTNP, so not doing any timing or tracking.

Trying anything new this month? Nope

Didi6 :  I hope everything works out so you can keep trying! Sounds so stressful with the work stuff. 

Optometrylove :  Yes for sure!!! Seems like we were pretty close too in the last POAS thread. Maybe we will get to have some cute lil August babies 🙂 I just put in my hypothetical O date into the “due date” calculator and it’s one day before my husband’s birthday! I hope the progesterone on day 3 will make all the difference for you 🙂

I’m officially one of y’all as of now (happy to keep hanging around, sad to be here at all). I’m not sure if I’ll even ovulate in time to poas in December but here’s to hoping! I hope y’all don’t have to see another poas board.
