Your Age / Partner’s Age: 29 / 34
Baby #: 1
Cycles Trying: I always have to look this one up….we are on month 13, but cycle 11 thanks to long cycles and PCOS.
Current CD/DPO: CD2
Usual Cycle Length: Around 35 days or so….give or take 5ish days, sometimes more.
Ovulation/Procedure Date: Somewhere between CD22-27 typically….I’ll say O will be around 2/1 (CD25). We will have to see what happens next week with hubby’s SA and then contact the RE for our next steps.
POAS / BETA Day: Depends when O happens but if it happens around CD25, then I’ll be POAS around 2/14.
Known Fertility Issues: ME = PCOS and bicornuate uterus. I am on the journey of losing weight in case we need to do IVF because my BMI is too high for an elective egg retrieval. Darling Husband = “no sperm” x2 SA’s (azoospermia) and has been trying clomid since November. He has an SA on Monday and we will find out next week if the clomid has helped sperm production.
BFP Plan: Me = prenatal, zinc, metformin, inositol, vitex, vitamin E, Vitamin D, CoQ10, L-Carnitine, B6, ACV (pill form, liquid is gross)….then evening primrose from start of AF to O to help with EWCM. I use the Ava bracelet to chart temp and HR…much easier with working all shifts as a nurse. Darling Husband = clomid every other day, multivitamin, CoQ10, viramin C, vitamin E, CoQ10, L-Carnitine and zinc. Even though Darling Husband has azoospermia as far as we know, we are still trying as if there is a chance in case something sneaks through. Depending on the results of his SA, we will go from there…but if they find any sperm in the sample they will freeze it until I lose enough weight to do ER.
Trying anything new this month?: We shall see 🙂 We may be having me continue to lose weight and do IVF when I can….or prepping for IUI with donor sperm.
For Fun – What’s your favorite chick flick / sappy film?: Oh gosh, this one is a hard one. I love the sap. Pour it all on. One of my favorites is 50 First Dates with Adam Sandler…another is How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days. I also love most sappy christmas movies even though I can predict 99% of them.
Random: Is anyone watching The Bachelor?
