Didi6 :  hey girl heyyy!!! Thanks for starting this- I was wondering if we should get one going today! 

ROLL CALL

 

Your age/partner’s age: 29/33

 

Baby #: 1

 

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD3

 

Ovulation Date: looks like Jan 3rd if this cycle is the same length as the last one but that was an agonizing 49 day cycle coming off of birth control for the first time- crossing my fingers for a shorter cycle and an earlier O date!

 

POAS Date: 1/13 but hoping I O early! Knowing how many sticks I peed on in December, I’ll probably start early around 10DPO

 

Usual Cycle Length: god, hopefully not another 49 days! 

 

Cycles Trying: 2!

 

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.):  BD timing, OPKs, prenatals, we may add in preeseed and LArginine this month

 

Trying anything new this month? Possibly preseed and LArgining

hubby and I love going to our timeshare at a ski resort in the Virginia mountains- our week is the week before Christmas each year so looking forward to that next week! My new favorite winter activity will hopefully be baby making when it’s cold outside 🤣🙈

Woot! Good luck to everyone in the new year ❤️

Your age/partner’s age: 37/46

Baby #: 2 – my son is 14 months old 

Current Cycle Day/DPO: Cycle Day 4 today

Ovulation Date: Approximately Dec 24…. my cycles are wonky right now due to a MC in late September, so it’s hard to say for sure.

POAS Date: Jan 3 (10 DPO)

Usual Cycle Length: 32, but my last one was 35. The one before that was about 42! (Relatively newly postpartum.)

Cycles Trying: 2 after my miscarriage, 3 total

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): prenatals, ubiquinol, Preseed, temping and charting, lots of BD

Trying anything new this month? Going to reintroduce Preseed (which we used when we conceived our kiddo), and try to temp at the same time (hard with a sick waking baby!)

For fun: What’s your favorite winter activity? Usually it’s skiing, but having a baby has made that a little harder. Definitely will get out this winter though!!

Hi girls!!! Long time lurker here finally joining the boards! I am so excited! Hoepfully I am doing this right lol

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 

24/28

Baby #: 

 #1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: 

Day 1 of period (been waiting for it show up so i could join this board!)

Ovulation Date: 

Should be 12/27!

POAS Date: 

1/7 – I don’t want to test too too early but I know I won’t be able to wait for a missed period lol

Usual Cycle Length:

36-37 days. I came off the pill in July and regulated back to 36 day cycles the next month (same as before the pill), but then we flew to Europe in September and that totally through me off! Cycles seem back to 36 days now, so crossing my fingers they don’t get any longer!

Cycles Trying: 

We’ve been NTNP since July with terrible timingsealed My husband works 3rd shift and work 12’s as nurse so timing as not been our strong suit lol. January will be our first month really “trying”.

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): 

Starting to chart and temp this month just to confirm when I actually ovulate (and that it is happening), taking prenatals, and unromantically planning when to BD in my fertile window so we don’t let our schedules get the best of us!

Trying anything new this month?

Just popping back in here with an update. I had gone for my preconception counseling appointment two weeks ago and I was a previous egg donor many many times. She looked at my file, had the good sense to order bloodwork and i found out two nights ago that my AMH is 1.0 and considered low. How ironic that I donated so many eggs years ago, I’m an L&D nurse and now I’ve spent literally all my life helping other women have children. Now when it’s my turn, I have hardly any left. Life isn’t fair. Anyways, my doc was proactive and gave me an Rx for three months of clomid. Soooo now that I took the clomid on CD 5, I will probably ovulate around Dec 20-22nd (ish) which puts my POAS date as probably January 1. I’ll roll call again if not successful. Cross all your fingers and toes for babydust for us this month…
