  • 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.

    Roll call!

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 6 

    Ovulation Date: FF has it predicted anywhere between CD 12 and 18. I’m making my own prediction for CD 17, but will use OPKs this month again. 

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Usual cycle length is 30 days, I aim to POAS February 7.

    Cycles Trying: This makes number 5. Feeling anxious that I’ll be joining the 6 month+ boards soon! 

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): BD EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! No chance of missing it that way! Also taking supplements, OPKs again this month…

    and for fun –

    What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC? Finish planning my April wedding before Uni goes back! And enjoy the nice summer weather while it lasts.

    @E_Lynne615:  Thanks!  As far as waiting until 2/1 goes, my cycle is not very consistent.  I’ve been tracking it with an app on my phone and over the past 8 months I’ve had cycles as long as 34 days to as short as 25 days.  The 1/25 expected AF is according to my app, but really, I’m expecting it to come later.  However, knowing me I will not be able to hold out and will probably be POAS that whole week until AF shows so I should probably be in the January POAS board. I want to start charting so I’ll really know what’s going on, but DH has asked that we wait a few months before we start timing things and putting more stress on TTC.

    I’m going to finally join one of these! I didn’t do December because I didn’t know until late that we would be able to TTC.

     

    Roll call!

     

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 11

     

    Ovulation Date: Not sure, probably Jan 19/20

     

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: AF Due on 3 Feb (32 days), so I’ll make that my official POAS date. I’ll almost definitely cave early though.

     

    Cycles Trying: This is number 2!

     

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): BDing, prenatals, We’re pretty relaxed about timing right now, but we usually hit the FW anyway.

    February is tough because DH will likely travel a while for work. So I’m not really making much in the way of plans for that month until that’s sorted. I’ll also be pretty busy with work.

    Ok, so I think I’ve moved past my self-pity party and accepted the fact that I didn’t get my BFP last cycle.  I had a rough weekend with lots of tears and prayers but today is a new day.  So here we go:

    Roll call!

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 5

    Ovulation Date: FF says CD 15/Jan. 23rd but that seems really late.  I think it will be more like CD 12 or 13. 

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Feb. 5th/26-28days

    Cycles Trying: 9

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Hmmm, lets see.  BDing, OPK’s, temping, charting CM/CP, prenatals, multivitamins for DH, DH is *hopefully* doing his SA this week and following up with Dr’s on the 28th to see where to go from here.

    What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC?  Getting back into the groove at the gym.  Also, hubby bought us tickets to our local AHL team vs. our NHL farm team for the end of month so that will be a nice date night πŸ™‚

    Hi Ladies! I’m officially joining the board after NTNP in November. I’m excited and terrified about TTC (mostly terrified at the moment), so we’ll see what life has in store for me this month. Fingers crossed for everyone! 

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD6

    Ovulation Date: CD18 (1/25)

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: I came off the pill 3 cycles ago, and I’ve been 28 days on the nose, so POAS Feb. 5…

    Cycles Trying: this is our first official try!

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): OPKs, start BDing every other day from the CD14 onward, and every day CD17-20, on prenatals.

    @MrsBananas:  Love the photo! Is there a story behind it?  Too cute.

     

    So last night I couldn’t sleep, and somehow ended up on the Bump Love threads….omg I was dyyiiinnnngggg.  I so can’t wait to be there!  All those adorable bellys and the chalk boards….I think I might go thrift store shopping this week and try to find a large, pretty frame so I can make one.  So I’ll be ready!

    I could possibly POAS twice in February. My DH is going for a SA on the day or day after I ovulate and cannot ejaculate for three days prior so we may not have great BD timing. HOWEVER, since I have slightly short cycles, I will get another chance before the month is out!!!

    ROLL CALL

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 6

     

    Ovulation Date:  CD 14-15

     

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Feb. 2nd/ ~25-26 days

     

    Cycles Trying: 3 after laparoscopy (WE WERE HALF-ASSING IT FOR 5YRS)

     

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Due to SA, we will only be able to BD once in FW, but it only takes one time!! I am not temping this cycle, only OPKs

    @mrsberry2011:  I just read through your post after your laparoscopic surgery and just wanted to say I can really relate. I just got my endo diagnosis last week and it was a really rough week. It was a huge shift in mentality to go from “not quite ready to start trying” to “hurry hurry we need to get pregnant like yesterday”. I feel so out of control. Here’s hoping this is a good month for both of us πŸ˜‰

    @LucilleToo:  Totally! My DH doesnt understand the mentality shift. We were half heartedly TTC for years so he couldnt understand why the pressure was on so suddenly. Before I could always come to the conclusion that it wasnt happening because we were not consistant, or we were not trying hard enough. Now that I am faced with real issues, the lacsidaisycal attitude is out the window.

    I have a feeling that I’ll be quite active on this board! I’m already getting very anxious and excited! Tonight I’m googling baby furniture and daydreaming about names and pregnant life and life with a baby! I think the fact that I’m so excited is a bad sign, so I’m trying not to get my hopes up!

    @AlmostMrsShield:  Optimism and Positivity are key!  You have a great outlook and hopefully this is your month!

    So ladies, today is my husbands Sperm Analysis day.  That is if he can get away from work to “give a specimen”.  How stupid is this:  They only have 1 appointment per day and its at 12:45pm.  DH is on the road for 90% of his job and never knows where he’ll be at any given time so its not like he has a set lunch time to do this.  He brought his specimen cup with him, in case he can’t get home at that time, lol.  I hope he can make this appointment as I’d love to get results before our FW next week.  I’ve got my fingers and tossed crossed that his results come back encouraging.  We haven’t discussed what we’ll do if they aren’t good…..
