    Current Cycle Day: CD38

    Ovulation Date:  I originally thought it was CD17 but now I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be tomorrow or the next day….been getting positive OPKs for the last two days πŸ™‚

    POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: I have only been off BCP for a few months. First cycle was 33 days, the next was 46 days. When I thought I O’d on CD17, I went a little crazy with the pee sticks lol…this time I’m viewing it as a second chance this cycle and I really want to wait till the new year to POAS. Hoping to just enjoy the holidays without worrying about it! 

    Cycles trying: One!

    BD timing: Every other day

    Favorite Moment from 2012:  Definitely my wedding!

    Resolutions for POAS: I will NOT POAS until the new year!

    @glittermoon:  Thanks for creating a January board! πŸ™‚ 

    Current Cycle Day: CD6

    Ovulation Date: Between December 25-28th

    POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: Going to try SO hard to wait it out until the actual day I am supposed to get AF, my last 2 cycles have been 27 days, so that would put me at January 7 for POAS date. 

    Cycles trying: 2nd actively trying, but I am calling it 3 because I was trying the first..even though Darling Husband was a little unaware lol πŸ˜›

    BD timing: We are going to try the “Sperm Meets Egg Plan” thing this month and try to do at least EOD starting CD 8 and 3 days in a row once I get positive OPK, skip a day, and do one more.  We will probably BD every day of fertile CM though, but last month I don’t even think I had EWCM. Booooo.

    Favorite Moment from 2012: Marrying the man of my dreams πŸ™‚

    Resolutions for POAS: I am going to try to expect AF instead of a BFP to try to counteract the disappointment (ha…wishful thinking).  I am also going to try to be more relaxed about everything and not analyze every single thing my body does and freak out about it. Ohhhh, and not POAS early because in the 2 cycles of no goalie I have already invested too much anxiety and $$ into tests. 

    This is my first month taking VitB complex, so I am hoping it will help extend my luteal phase.  Excited to get to know you all better and see some more people graduate POAS boards, even if it’s not me! πŸ™‚

    Well, I was on the December list but decided to step out since an end of August EDD was not good for us AND I didn’t want to spend the Holidays coming up with fake reasons why I’m not having a glass of wine…

    So I’m back for January! December was our first cycle, so I guess since we’re starting over…

    Current Cycle Day: Not done with my December cycle. Period is due tomorrow; so if this is right, December 18 would be CD1

    Ovulation Date: Around Jan. 2

    POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: November was my second period since I gave birth last December… My cycle was 29 days. I am expecting my period tomorrow if I am regular on a 29 days cycle. We’ll see.. If this is correct, I would be POAS on Jan. 16 (probably a few days before since I become a POAS addict once I start).

    Cycles trying: After “trying” before I got my period back, and our December false start, this will be our first official cycle

    BD timing: Keeping it regular, whether in the fertile window or not. My sex drive tends to go through the roof around ovulation anyway so it will be impossible to miss. Will still keep an eye on the fertility calendar 

    Favorite Moment from 2012: Lots of them, most have to do with my son who turns one on Thursday. Most recently, he started walking, which is so exciting!

    Resolutions for POAS: There’s no point in taking resolutions of not POAS too often.. I’m a lost cause.
