    Current Cycle Day/DPO: cd 1

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: I’m not too sure… Judging by OPKs it varies but around CD20

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: dec 30- between 30 and 33 days 

    Cycles Trying:  5

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.):  finally going to the doctor for my annual exam and will discuss ttc and checking my thyroid to make sure it’s in check so we have a better chance of getting pregnant, OPKs to help have a better idea of ovulation.

    @IUrebekah3RT:  I’m 5dpo and going crazy!  I was fine and not thinking about it until last night then that’s when I started symptom spotting. 

    At times I think I have really good feelings and think this is the month, then the other half of me is pessimistic. Ugh! I wish there was an easy way to get pregnant every month.

    @IUrebekah3RT:  2DPO here but really not going crazy! Because…

    We timed it really well but had a pretty big argument over TTC on O day. Basically, H is so on board to TTC and was as bummed as I was when we didn’t conceive on the first try, but he doesn’t want to know anything about charting, OPKs, etc. So on that day, it all just came to a head. He said he feels like our sex life is forced during that time (it totally wasn’t) and that knowing when I’m fertile takes the romance out of it. I told him that’s understandable, but then he can’t be so bummed when it takes me several cycles to get pregnant.

    We’ve made up and everything is fine, but it kinda took the wind out of my sails about it all. So I’m reallllly hoping this is our cycle so that we can stop disagreeing over our approach! 

    Anyone else’s husbands feel this way?

    @cant.wait.to.be.mrs.d:  Boo to family stress over the holidays, FX it didn’t screw up your cycle! I think your chart looks good and you have great BD timing throughout your cycle (only here can we analyze the sex lives of people we don’t know and feel okay about it!)

    @terpalum10:  That really sucks. I’m really sorry he feels that way. My husband doesn’t do that, we mostly make a joke of it, but I honestly can see how it may feel like that to a guy. I’m on board 100% with you though. Charting makes this LESS stressful and MORE enjoyable for me. 


    AFM, I am nervous that I’m O’ing sooner than anticipated this month and we didn’t have great timing if so. We don’t use OPKs, but I’ve been pretty regularly O’ing on 17 or 18 DPO so I figured this month would be the same. I know it’s too soon to tell, but what do you all think? I also had trouble charting CM the past two days because I may have been confusing it with semen (Haha Too Much Information sorry).

    @terpalum10:  do you guys not have sex all the time ? And are only in the mood when you know it’ll possibly result in pregnancy ?  Try being spontaneous on your off weeks too. Be romantic or kinky and such.    

    hearing about opks and charting is definitely not sexy nor a turn on. So I’d leave that to yourself.

    @terpalum10:  My Darling Husband has and extreme case of baby rabies – so he loves knowing when I’m fertile…but hes different. If your Darling Husband is uncomfortable knowing, just dont tell him when youre fertile. Just keep jumping on him.  As long as you BD regularly thoughout the month he should be happy!  Making a baby is stressful – and our DHs get stressed about it too!
