Your age/partner’s age: 33/36

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 16

Ovulation Date: Jan 13

POAS Date: Jan 27

Usual Cycle Length: 33 days

Cycles Trying: This is #2

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Temping, mucinex, prenatals, no OPKs or timed BD this month

Trying anything new this month? I’m not telling my DH when the fertile window is. Cycle 1 I told him and it freaked him out, and we ended up having the same amount of sex as usual, just unromantic and stressed out sex. So far we’ve been having sex EOD, and I think we’ll do that throughout the fertile window. Every day is just not really natural for us during the work week.

I’m going to try Mucinex because usually I only have one day of watery CM.

I’m also temping this month, last month I had a fever right before my fertile window so temping didn’t make sense.

Hi Everyone-

Your age/partner’s age: 29/33

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 22/DPO guessing 7

Ovulation Date: Jan 2nd (guessing)

POAS Date: Jan 17th?

Usual Cycle Length: not sure yet still regulating

Cycles Trying: This is #1

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): This month was just guessing by CM and ovulation symptoms.

Trying anything new this month? Next month I am going to try temping and monitoring CM like this month. I feel like I have a good feeling of when I ovulate. I am still new to all this!

Good Luck to everyone!

POAS Date: Jan 31

Usual Cycle Length: 30-31days

Cycles Trying: This is #5

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Nothing planned at the moment… May start using OPKS around CD11 just incase. 

Trying anything new this month?

Past my surge- think I was being thrown off by testing FMU with OPKs. Going to estimate CD 21 as O date, darkest mid day/ evening positive after first pos on CD 19. My estimated testing date is 1/17-1/18. That’s when af should be due 


Im due to go out of town for a Bachelorette weekend the 1/13-1/15- should I avoid drinking or will light drinking be ok? If I tested before I went I doubt it would be positive even if I conceived as I would only be 7 dpo. 


Any insight?

What day should I test realistically?  My postive OPK and clearblue digital was 12/29, my D&C was 11/29 so I’m not sure when my period is due.  I took a test today and it was negative, I knew that was going to be the case.  I don’t feel like it’s my month but it’ll drive me crazy waiting for AF to start.

I tested Jan 7 and got a BFN but wasn’t tracking anything this month as we wanted to just wing it and see what happens (stupid idea!!). I’m CD33 right now, but l have irregular cycles thanks to PCOS so I don’t even know if I’m late or ovulated early/late/at all.

I am currently on Metformin which helped regulate my last couple of cycles..last month was 26 days and the month before was 25 days so I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to keep wasting pregnancy tests and getting my hopes up but I don’t know what else to do. Maybe I’m just skipping this month? We are starting with a fertility clinic and I am still completing all of my testing but cannot do them until I start my next cycle so feel like I am playing the waiting gameΒ frown

meanttobeeeee54321 :  Alcohol won’t affect an embryo per se as there’s no blood connection but alcohol does weaken and tire your body as you process it (as does staying out really late) so I’d recommend a couple of drinks spaced out max and just take it easy, no crazy dancing for hours! My fertility clinic recommends no strenuous exercise for 3 days around implantation (so that’s from 7dpo) πŸ‘πŸ»

I may just be totally losing it at this point! No hard feelings – be honest!
