    Current Cycle Day/DPO: Cycle Day 9

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: Nov. 25-28

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Dec. 10th.  Usually 29-31 days

    Cycles Trying: This is our fourth…  

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Trying Raspberry Leaf Tea 4x a day until O-day. BD as much a possible.

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

    I’m really boring and have no idea yet… clothes? Maybe I’ll be inspired by your wish lists! πŸ™‚

    @CocoLoco523:  I love you! I love having threads start early! It keeps my crazy brain kinda sane. πŸ˜€


    Current Cycle Day/DPO: Currently at CD 13. I’ve been using Kindara to track my cycles and it predicts I shall Ovulate on Saturday…looking at the way my OPKs are going, I think that could be about right! Fingers crossed! 

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: opps, I kinda already answered, I think it will be the 23rd. 

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Given what my phone is predicting, I will test on December 6th. I probably shouldn’t until the 7th, but on the 6th I get my semester results and I’m hoping either I get really good marks to make up for a BFN, or a BFP to make up for bad results. Orrrrr, even better! Great marks AND a BFP! lol

    Cycles Trying: This is number 3…third time lucky right???

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): BD every day/every second day. Pre-natals. Fiance is more on board for REALLY trying this time (he previously was letting me do the planning and he just did his part each night. lol), so I might do some research on “best practice”. lol Any tips?

    Link to Chart, if any: no chart πŸ™

    I really don’t know….I have two amazing pups, everything I really want material-wise. A house would be nice, but let’s be realistic! haha. I really do love Christmas time! I don’t even need gifts, it’s just such a magical time! 


    Oh, and my ALL TIME FAVOURITE  Christmas move….The Polar Express, for it’s “magical” value. I also like miracle on 34th Street, for the same reason. Ok look, let’s stop there and make a generic statement – I LOVE any children’s Christmas movie.

    Eeeek this is my first time posting on the POAS board! 

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 17

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: Not sure of ovulation date (I’m using OPKs this cycle to try to figure it out). No positive OPKs yet, but I’m guessing it may be sometime in the next few days. According to FF, my fertile window is this week and next. With my weird cycles, who knows? 

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: usual cycle length is variable. I stopped taking the pill 4.5 months ago, and have had 40, 48, and 37 day cycles thus far. FF predicts next AF due Dec 9…so I’ll try to hold out to test Dec 14 (would be CD 41 if no AF by then). 

    Cycles Trying: This is our first official cycle πŸ™‚ we pulled the goalie towards the end of my last cycle. 

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Prenatals, limiting alcohol, eating better, BD’ing most days (especially during what we think is my fertile window), DH is taking multivitamins. My only caffeine intake is ~ 2 cups of coffee every morning, but I may start weaning that back a bit too (sad face). 

    Link to Chart, if any: I’m not a very thorough charter (no temps or anything), just trying to get a general feel for my cycle by tracking AF and sometimes cramps/CM

    What would you REALLY, REALLY love for a holiday gift (other than the obvious BFP of course…) ? Hmmm I don’t know…mostly I just want some projects on our house to be done!

    Can’t believe AF just ended but I still have to wait 1 1/2 months to POAS. Stupid long cycles *grumble grumble*

    Oof – due to just regular life tiredness getting in the way, we only BD’d at O-3 and O-1. Not exactly covering the bases here, but we’ll see!

    To all the December POAS’ers…, especially those that will POAS in early December… What are you going to do if you get your BFP in December (besides squeal and jump around for joy)?? I mean as far as holiday/Christmas celebrations with families/work/etc…

    I can figure out how to avoid work holiday parties/etc, but there’s NO way I’m going to be able to hide not drinking around my immediate family (or in-laws) over Christmas break.. they will be super suspicious! Not that I’m a huge drinker, but I usually won’t turn down a couple glasses of wine or some hot brandy or something.

    I’m really close with my parents and sisters, and we have a very small family – my oldest sister lives really far away and we don’t get to see her and her family very often.. If I get a BFP in early December, I’ll only be a few weeks along by Christmas time – would you:

    tell your family?
    fake sick?
    fake drink?
    fake meds?
    fake a coma to get through the holidays without talking to anyone? 

    Granted, this is month one off BC for me, so I probably won’t even get a chance to POAS because my cycle will probably go wacko and I won’t even ovulate until July, but I want to be prepared for anything! πŸ™‚

    Yay!! I’m so excited for this board!! 

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 18

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: According to my past months it should be today/tomorrow. I’m taking an OPK as soon as I get home from work. This morning it was still negative but I’ve been feeling my usual ovulation cramps and see a little clear CM so I thought I’d test twice today just in case. 

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: AF is due December 11th so ill test December 13th if I can hold off that long and AF doesn’t show. 

    Cycles Trying: 3rd cycle actively trying. 2nd cycle using OPKs

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): we’ve been BD’ing every day since Tuesday and plan to keep going through Sunday since this is my fertile week. Using OPKs and been taking prenantal vitamins for 2 months 

    and for fun –

    What would you REALLY, REALLY love for a holiday gift (other than the obvious BFP of course…) ?  Nothing. LOL just a BFP!  πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
