beignetwife :  Please put me down for Jan 5th POAS date. FF moved my O date to Friday, which is in line with my expectations but also confirms that we messed up our timing :-/ SMEP would have given us perfect timing, so I’m definitely doing a better job of following it next cycle.

livster :  Will do!!

 

I’m in prep mode today. I ordered PreSeed and Fertilaid today. I lectured DH about the importance of being well hydrated and taking his vitamins. I was taking Vitex once a day, but I think I’m going to up the dosage to 2-3 a day as directed on the bottle We are going to start the Whole 30 January 2. I would start earlier since I’m expected to O on January 8th (seems so close), but year end is riddled with deadlines and parties, neither of which are conducive to starting fresh. I’m glad O is nowhere near NYE so that my temp won’t be affected by drinking and I can get a solidly confirmed O date. The other positive side is that if we conceive this cycle, the holidays will fall during my maternity leave, so that will fun!

beignetwife :  good luck with your prepping!  Thanks for bringing some positivity and sharing your ideas! 

At work today :/  I think I’m about to head out for a walk!  I’m still a bit confused by my early ovulation but that would make my period due around January 5th.  Last month I didn’t test at all.  I’m not sure that I will test this month either unless AF is late.  Guess I’m a bit down about it.  6 plus cycles in I think it starts to really feel like a miracle if you get a positive.  I could maybe this week call to schedule for fertility testing and cancel if I get a BFP … I think I’m struggling to make that call.  To be honest, I think I might be kind of an emotional wreck discussing fertility testing.  I was tearing up a bit at my annual appointment in June when I had just gone off BCP and had no idea yet whether it might happen right away.

Scarlett11 :  This cycle was our testing cycle.  Not sure if it was the monitoring, stopping vitex, acupuncture or SHG that helped but it was our lucky one after 6 months of nothing.  It was pretty overwhelming but I figured it’s better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.  It’s a pretty emotional process so they are understanding of tears etc.

Scarlett11 :  I know exactly how you feel Bee (including being bored/restless at work)! I’m 7 cycles in and feeling like I’ll never see a positive test.  At the end of last cycle I made an appointment for mid Jan with my OBGYN to discuss whether we are eligible for fertility testing yet: I thought I was pretty calm about the whole thing, but when the receptionist asked what the appointment was for and I said the words “fertility testing” out loud (for the first time?), I immediately got choked up.  It didn’t help that the receptionist’s voice got really gentle and pitying…

I also recently realized that if we aren’t successful in this or next cycle, I’ll probably have to take time off TTC because my sister is getting married in December 2017 in a different country and I don’t want to travel internationally on a long haul flight with a month-old baby or that close to my due date.  So unless we get a Feb miracle (I’m not even really counting this cycle since our timing was bad), its starting to look like a 2018 (!!!) baby for me.  When I think how I was planning for a May 2017 baby, its really hard to stave off the negative thoughts.

livster :  we decided to take March, if it comes to it, so we don’t have a Christmas baby. As hard as it will be to take a month off after 8 cycles(at that point), I always feel so bad for kids born so close to Christmas. Their birthdays get so overshadowed.

beignetwife :  That would definitely be a positive! And a new baby to show off to your extended family during all the holiday get togethers. DH is on board for the Whole 30 too, so I’m starting to plan all of that out today.

Scarlett11 :  I hear you, I really sometimes wonder what it will be like to see a positive test. I doubt I will even believe it.

banana330 :  Maybe I will call about an appointment tomorrow…  I’ve been saying that for a month now ๐Ÿ™‚  But DH and I did decide after this cycle so if I don’t get up the guts before then I will have him expecting me to make that call at the end of next week.

beignetwife :  DH and I also made the decision to take the month of March off if we are still trying at that point. It’s so crazy to think that we would be due in 2018 if January and February aren’t successful. 

 

I have also decided not to temp this month. I wake up randomly a lot from 2-5am every day and while I got crosshairs at the same time as my positive OPK’s, I had to use temp converter quite a few days. I’m going to relax this month and hope for the best. I’m also going to really try not to test early. Last month I made it to 11DPO before I caved and tested. It’s just so disappointing to see that negative and then I give myself hope that it’s still possible because it’s early. Plus it’s expensive ๐Ÿ˜œ
