- Wedding: August 2012
Fiance and I had a long conversation tonight about TTC timelines. We were originally going to start TTC right away after our wedding (Next Friday OMG!), but he recently got some news about a very important event that will take up most of April/May of next year, so giving birth before June would be a very, very bad idea.
So, I’m trying to push past my dissappointment, and come up with a proper Plan of Attack (so to speak). Now, I have a whole practice month, and we’ll ‘pull the goalie’ after (Late) September Cycle starts.
1) Should I go on Prenatals now? Or, just at the start of my September Cycle?
2) I guess really should start temping/OPKing to figure out when I Ovulate but here’s the catch…
My sleep schedule is very, very strange. I work Overnights 3-days a week, so I sleep during the day Mon-Wed/Thurs and nights Thurs-Sun. When on earth would be a good time to temp, since I obviously can’t at the same time of day exactly. Should I just do it “Right Before Bed” (weither it’s 10am, or 10pm) or when I “Wake Up” (Again, could be 8-10am or 4-5pm).
I’m very confused, and wondering if I should not even try temping. From what I can tell OPKs are a bit of a pain in the ass – so – any advice on this would be great. Should I even bother trying to pinpoint my Ovulation right now, or just worry about that if I need to after a few months.
3) Anything else I can do this month that will help me out in September?
See you in the POAS Oct Thread, I guess. (Although, hopefully everyone reading this will have gotten their BFPs by then, right?)
Thanks Bees, any help is appreciated.
