  • poll: Do you have Valentine's Day plans?

    My only plans are to BD! :)

    We are going out for a romantic dinner or date.

    We are staying in and making our own special dinner.

    We are taking a romantic trip!

    I'm treating myself to a spa day/etc..

    No plans yet, but hope to have some!

    Nothing special, it's just another day.

    I was just diagnosed with Endometriosis during laproscopic surgery to remove a cyst (fun day, right?). We weren’t quite ready to TTC, but my chances are best the year after surgery, so in the words of my DH, “whelp, let’s knock them out.” I’m trying to find a balance between (1) excited, (2) not too hopeful, and (3) devastated about the endo and its potential effects on my fertility. Plenty of people with endo get pregnant though, right? RIGHT?!?! I’m ready to get this TTC party started!

     

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD4

     

    Ovulation Date: Anywhere between Jan 21-27 (even after a year of charting, FF has a solid week of green days)

     

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: This also varies, but let’s go with Feb 8 until I get closer. I’d like to wait until day 14, but it would be the first time I’ve ever had that kind of self control.

     

    Cycles Trying: First official cycle. We had a previous “oops” cycle, but this is the real deal.

     

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Bought OPKs from Amazon, upgraded to FF VIP and started taking prenatals. My desperate attempt to gain a sense of control after the endo diagnosis.

     

    Link to Chart, if any: I’ll add it when I figure out how to do that…

     

    and for fun –

     

    What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC? I have a very full reading list and we’re taking a weekend getaway with friends. I’d really just like to fast forward through this month though.

    Hi girls!  I love seeing all the excitement with the Feb board being up!  Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m going to be roll calling this month.  I’ve mentioned a little before about having a chronic health issue, and truth be told I’m just not doing well.  I had to switch medications and my doctor wants us to wait.  She was very optimistic and cheerful and told me “not to worry,” that “we’ll get you pregnant this year!”  But it just sucks!  I’ve lost my mind thinking about babies… I’m like obsessed.  I wake up and go to bed thinking about babies!!  So anyways, not sure when I’ll get the okay to TTC, but for now I am still not on BC and if it happens, then IMO it’s God’s will!  But no, I’m not going to go against her advice and do it on purpose πŸ™ 

    But I’ll be following the board of course!  Good luck ladies!

    @E_Lynne615:  I am sadly already very excited to start peeing on my OPKs next week, eep! Bit unsure as to when I should start since my cycle lengths vary, but I am going away for work Monday/Tuesday sooo Wednesday it is! At least with being far away in a hotel I can’t be prematurely peeing πŸ™‚

    ARRGGGHHH I am so impatient I just wanna be pregnant already!!!!

    AF finally showed up, I guess I’ll officially introduce myself, now that husband and I will be actively trying! πŸ™‚

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: Today is January 12th, CD1 for me after going off the BCP on the 9th. I was spotting and cramping 2 days ago but didn’t have a flow until today.

    Ovulation Date: I never really recorded my cycle in the past, I just knew if I didn’t get my period by the end of the month, to worry. But usually AF shows up the second to last week of the month, so I’m thinking I’ll O between the 26th of Jan and 1st of Feb.

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Cycle length 28-34 days (guessing) I will POAS Feb 8th regardless

    Cycles Trying: This will be my first cycle off BC. Things might be wonky, so I’m not getting my hopes up.

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): The moment I stop bleeding we’ll be doing the BD daily. The hubs and I run a business together, so we have the advantage of seeing eachother all day, everyday. No shame in flipping the “Closed, will return at ____ o’clock” sign :p

    I’ve also been dieting and excercising and taking vitamins the past 2 years. I’ve lost weight and attriubute my regular period to finally getting serious about my health. (I had an awful irregular cycle all through my teens and early 20’s)

    Link to Chart, if any: Decided not to chart. Just recording my AF behavior. Taking OPK’s for fun.

    and for fun –

    What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC?

    I’m in the process of putting together a dollhouse kit I got for christmas. It’s such a fun project! I expect to make a lot of progress this month, including laying and staining some hardwood floors made from coffee stirrers :p

    I’m so excited to finally join!

    Roll call!

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 17

    Ovulation Date: not sure because I don’t chart but based on symptoms it was around 1/9-1/10

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: I’m expecting AF on 1/25. If she doesn’t show I will POAS 2/1.

    Cycles Trying: This is our first cycle!

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): BD often; taking prenatals and decreasing caffeine. I’m also attempting to quit smoking, but I feel I may not have the willpower to fully quit until I get a bfp.

    @E_Lynne615:  That was going to be my next thing to worry about caffeine. I was ADDICTED to diet coke. I quit a month ago (more to do with chemicals than caffeine).

    Since we are trying again… I read up of caffeine and even though i was fighting it, I am going to cut back:( I read that even though people dissagree most say 300 mg is safe but one study said 200… so I will try under.  I was drinking those refreashers from Starbucks (i hate coffee) but they say they have ginseng and I cant get info on that. So I found these V8 energy drinks with one serving of fruit and veggies is a can and they have 80 mg of caffeine….. that will have to do for now.
