  • Wedding: October 2017

Your age/partner’s age: 32/31

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: 1

Ovulation Date: I’m not sure; I got my IUD out yesterday so I think I may ovulate this week  

POAS Date: I am going to try 1/10/19 if AF hasnt arrived by then  

Usual Cycle Length: Not sure as I’ve had the Mirena for 4.5 years and my period went away completely. I am pretty sure I still ovulated though, as I’d get PMS symptoms every month (though no bleeding).

Cycles Trying: 1

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Got out the IUD yesterday morning, went right to work trying last night 😉 My SIL got pregnant with her baby the day she got her IUD out, so anything is possible! I’ve been taking vitamin D and DHA (prenatals have made my heart race) and am just eating lots of green veggies and turkey/salmon.

Trying anything new this month? Just having fun and seeing what happens! We are so excited.

For fun: What are you most looking forward to in 2019? The possibility of a little boo!

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 26/27

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 2 

Ovulation Date: Estimated Dec 28

POAS Date: Maaaaybe the 9th? Darling Husband and I are leaving on the 10th to go on our honeymoon cruise and AF is supposed to come the 12th, if she’s on time, which is smack in the middle of our trip. So maybe I’ll be blissfully ignorant the whole trip and test when we get back if AF doesn’t come on time. We’ll see, I guess. 

Usual Cycle Length: 32-ish days 

Cycles Trying: 3

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Timing. OPKs, for the first time. Sperm Meets Egg Plan. Pre-seed, prenatals, CoQ10 for both of us. 

Trying anything new this month? OPKs. I’d hoped to do this without them but it looks like I’ll be better off knowing when I’m O-ing. 

For fun: What are you most looking forward to in 2019? Our honeymoon! I’m annoyed that my current AF predictions have her coming in the middle of it. My last cycle was so late that it pushed the next one back by a lot. Hopefully 2019 will bring a pregnancy and maybe even a new baby.
