    can’t believe i’m doing this after following this site since we were engaged … but we aren’t telling anyone about ttc and i’m really looking forward to the support system here!



    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD-2 (appx)

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: O sometime around Dec 12-December 14th (apx)

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: December 28 (appx)

    Cycles Trying: first one! went off BC about a month ago, had withdrawal bleeding, and presuming (slash hoping) my cycles are like they were before BC i should be seeing AF this holiday weekend! technically we are NTNP since I’m not charting or anything (that’s why all dates are approximate – want to try a few cycles without charting/temping so it’s less stressful). We are both in our 20s so there’s no real time crunch as of now.

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Prenatals off and on since august (but I’ve been really good about it for the last 6 weeks)…and BD alot! DH is being more careful about drinking etc, which is good because when I get my BFP it won’t look weird that we are both staying away from alc 🙂

    Link to Chart, if any: n/a

    and for fun –

    What would you REALLY, REALLY love for a holiday gift (other than the obvious BFP of course…) ? a breadmaker! i recently became obsessed with making bread, but kneading is so hard on my shoulders, and making the dough always makes a huge mess in my kitchen!

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD13

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: The earliest I have ever Oed was CD15 and the latest CD38! I’m usually between CD20 and CD24. I’m going to start OPKs today and I think the FW will be next week.

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: December 17th. Based on a lot of wildly various data…

    Cycles Trying: This is #2.

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Prenatals, calcium. Take EPO + maca + mucinex for EWCM because I take daily allergy medication. I think we’ll do EOD and then once we get the + on the OPK it will be daily.

    What would you REALLY, REALLY love for a holiday gift (other than the  obvious BFP of course…)? Unfortunately I had to facilitate the purchase, but I’ll be getting a KitchenAid mixer! Some knee high, brown leather wedge boots would be nice too! 😉

    @CocoLoco523:  True that, a NYE BFP would be pretty spectacular. According to FF I should be testing either around Christmas or NYE, so either way should be interesting. I can’t wait to start taking the OPK’s that are burning a whole in my bathroom drawer!

    First time doing roll call. Here’s hoping it’s the extra luck that we needed!

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD19. Either 1 or 3 DPO, the OPK was confusing.

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: 11/21 to 11/25

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: 12/15. 34 day cycle

    Cycles Trying: this is number 3. Third time is a charm, right?

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): BD EOD, prenatals, rasberry leaf tea, vitex, and OPKs

    What would you REALLY, REALLY love for a holiday gift (other than the  obvious BFP of course…) ? a new kindle.

    OK.  I’ve tried using cheapies off the internet but have never been able to get a positive.  Decided to use digitals today and finally got something…but then it quickly disappeared.  The top was at 10 AM and the bottom at 2PM with a hold in the middle.

    Can i mark positive on my chart?

    @mdglass:  Just wanted to say HELLO to a fellow Hoosier! I graduated from IU in 2006. I’m jealous that you’re in Bloomington. Such a fantastic town. I live in Cincinnati, OH now. Good luck this month! FX for a BFP!

    @MrsBaldEagle:  Oo, I’m so behind but wanted to quickly respond that although I suck very badly at tracking CM, I did notice that semen tends to only be present in the morning, whereas EWCM is present throughout the day (assuming we BD the night before). Other than that, I really can’t tell the difference and that sucks, because I feel like that’s when it’s important to be able to distinguish – during your FW so there should be EWCM, which is also when you have a lot of sex, so therefore semen is present as well. 


    Thank god for this board to talk Too Much Information stuff with!

    And to add, I for one, am very much looking forward to drinking really good wine with my Thanksgiving dinner. If I had gotten a BFP last month, I’m sure I would have been thrilled to NOT drink, but I will be sure to enjoy every last drop! I should be in my FW or just starting the TWW at that time, so am not even going to stress about not drinking.

    @Mars62312:  hard to tell from those pics as the lighting isnt the greatest. I’m leaning towards no for the top one as I think the control still looks like a darker, fatter line than the test line. Anyone else wanna chime in with their thoughts?


    What do ovulation pains feel like? Are they all-over cramps? I have had a short shooting pain (I guess where my right ovary would be lol) off and on today, which should be O day since I got a positive OPK yesterday, but I feel like sometimes I just get random pains like that. Although maybe me getting those random pains was really me ovulating all these months and this is the only time I am thinking about what it means? Anyways…how does it feel for you ladies?

    @IUrebekah3RT:  Hahahahaha. Well all the way over here in aus, we don’t even have thanksgiving! I’m decorating my house on Friday too! yay!! Christmas is my favourite so I’m hoping that helps a little bIt! I just really really really really want a bfp. This particular one is crucial because it marks which life plan we choose (yes, we have two lol)

    @Pink Asawa:  Thanks…it’s the closest I’ve ever come so I guess I’ve just gotta go with it!  I’ll test again tomorrow and see what happens!

    That’s what my pains feel like!  I feel like they’re pretty distinct.

    Hi ladies! I’m checking in for the Dec POAS thread. AF should be here tomorrow or on T-day (booo) but then it’s time for us to stop charting to avoid and charting to concieve! *happy dance* I’m so excited that it’s finally time (after over a year of charting avoid, it’s about damn time!)

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: 28/12

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: looking at dec it looks sometime between the 13th and 20th. Horay for irregular ovulation!

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: hahaha we’ll talk about poas date after I o

    Cycles Trying: this will be our first

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): taking it easy this first cycle… but lots of sex.. and I may be a little more frisky during o window. Paying more attention to my cm (since that’s what counts now that I’m no longer avoiding!) and taking my prenatals!
