ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 31/32

Baby #: 3! Two boys ages 5 and 3

Current cycle day/DPO: 2 DPO

Ovulation date: 1/19

POAS date: 2/1

Usual cycle length: 32 days 

Cycles trying: first official! 

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): taking prenatals, we hit the three days leading up to what I think was my ovulation date and O date itself. I’m not charting so just going off my period tracking ap. I got my copper IUD out on 1/11 so that might hinder this month’s chances some. 

Trying anything new this month?

For fun – any plans for Valentine’s during a pandemic OR what would you be doing if there were no restrictions? No plans and sadly that’s the same whether we are on lock down or back to normal. The boys love V day though so I’ll make them up baskets with all sorts of red things! 

 

So excited to be apart of this again! Never wanted kids but had them for my husband. Then, I begged him to let us have one more haha! I love being a mom. I’m really wanting one more boy!

Thanks for hosting this month! May the hostess luck resume with you!

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 31/41

Baby #: 1

Current cycle day/DPO: CD 4

Ovulation date: Between CD 12-14, so 1/30-2/1. Usually 14, but sometimes I O early. 

POAS date: 2/14

Usual cycle length: 24-27 days (12-13 day LP lately)

Cycles trying: this will be our 9th cycle, no MCs or chemicals

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): we’ll strictly follow SMEP this month, I ditched charting and never looked back, OPKs and log in Premom app, prenatals, baby aspirin, and a whole host of new supplements

Trying anything new this month? I’m adding in mucinex, DH and I are both taking vitamins c, d, zinc, and folate, and he’s taking Fertilaid. We’re cutting back the caffeine a little, and I’m trying to reign in my alcohol consumption. I don’t have any issues with drinking (I’ve successfully cut it out for long periods of time without any struggle whatsoever), but I just love cooking with a nice glass of wine, and in a pandemic after a very bad year, it’s been so hard to give up that particular indulgence. Also, not to make things political, but DH and I are VERY dialed into politics and given our political leanings, the past 4 years (and especially the past few months with all the chaos) have been stressful. I’m hoping that the stability and utterly blandness of the new administration finally brings us some stress relief there. 

For fun – any plans for Valentine’s during a pandemic OR what would you be doing if there were no restrictions? we’ve never been valentines people, so not much will change. We’ll probably make a cheese plate and get a dessert.

Thannks for hosting. Really cute calendar!

Your age/partner’s age: 29/29

Baby #: 1

Current cycle day/DPO: CD1

Ovulation date: ~Feb. 5

POAS date: I think I’m actually going to try to hold out for 14dpo this time, so Feb. 19

Usual cycle length: 28 days

Cycles trying: 6

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): Prenatals, watching out for CM, still trying to improve my fitness.

Trying anything new this month? This may sound radical/odd and we haven’t decided yet, but we may try NTNP this month.  That or not particularly timed BD’ing.  We did pretty much every day of the fertile window last month and it was just OK.  I think I’ll still use OPKs, but maybe not as strictly as normal.

For fun – any plans for Valentine’s during a pandemic OR what would you be doing if there were no restrictions? Just some quality time in.  A nice dinner and movie on the couch.  Hoping we an bake some cinnamon buns, too!

ROLL CALL

 

Your age/partner’s age: 25/26 

 

Baby #: 1

 

Current cycle day/DPO: CD8

 

Ovulation date: predicted 30/1, but still a little up and down post 10+ years of birth control 

 

POAS date: 12/2, assuming I hold off that long! 

 

Usual cycle length: 28-30 days

 

Cycles trying: 3

 

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): folate, reducing caffine and alcohol (I don’t usually have much of either) going to try SMEP this month. 

 

Trying anything new this month? First month of properly trying SMEP, plus I am off work for a few days during FW so hopefully some extra chill also! 

 

For fun – any plans for Valentine’s during a pandemic OR what would you be doing if there were no restrictions? We’re not huge valentines people, but I’m keen to get some popcorn from the local cinema and have a movie night at home 🙂

  • Wedding: May 2017

Your age/partner’s age: 30/29

Baby #: 2

Current cycle day/DPO: Cycle day 19, not sure on DPO

Ovulation date: 1/22 but I don’t hold a lot of accuracy to the app 

POAS date: 2/6

Usual cycle length: 28-30 days but my first cycle ttc was an early miscarriage and ended up being 38 days so now my cycles are off  

Cycles trying: 3 

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): We BD every other day until I’m due for my period to try and cover early or late ovulation. With our daughter we BD every day of that cycle but that is too hard on us. 

Trying anything new this month? Nope, trying to not pee on a stick every single day leading up to my period. I have had two chemicals prior to our daughter so I’m trying to not put myself through that mind game again. The early miscarriage was already hard so I don’t want to keep torturing myself. 

For fun – any plans for Valentine’s during a pandemic OR what would you be doing if there were no restrictions? We really don’t celebrate and if we do we just get takeout so I don’t have to cook. Our daughter’s second birthday is 2/10 so we will be having cake with immediate family.

  • Wedding: July 2020

Your age/partner’s age: 27/30

Baby #: 1 (hopefully!)

Current cycle day/DPO: Only stopped taking my birth control pill on 10/01 so not really sure. According to my app it’s CD12 but that’s just based on my last withdrawal bleed, still waiting for my real period to show!

Ovulation date: Don’t know yet. Been doing OPKs but all negative so far.

POAS date: Don’t know yet

Usual cycle length: Can’t remember! I remember being quite irregular before I first started birth control pills five years ago. 

Cycles trying: 1

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): I’ve started temping, using OPKs and taking TTC supplements.

Trying anything new this month? All of the above!

For fun – any plans for Valentine’s during a pandemic OR what would you be doing if there were no restrictions? We are in full lockdown until 15/02 so will probably have a nice meal just the two of us, my husband is a chef so I’m sure he’ll plan something nice!
