For fun: US- favorite way to celebrate the Fourth? Non-US or alternative – any summer holiday trips planned as things are slowly opening back up/where would you want to go first?- We’re going to my parent’s place for the weekend! Cooking out, swimming in the pool, going into the hot tub while I still can after our daughter is in bed. Fireworks aren’t possible unfortunately with her bed time.

DH and I BDed around ovulation date this month on a whim, so joining roll call just in case 🙂 Not too hopeful since it was just once and didn’t have OPKs, buuuuuut why not. I loved the support and the feel of community 3 years ago when I was trying for my first, so I had to return!

For fun: US- favorite way to celebrate the Fourth? Non-US or alternative – any summer holiday trips planned as things are slowly opening back up/where would you want to go first? Thinking of baking some lasagna and mini-cupcakes with DD 🙂

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 31/31

Baby #: 1st living 

Current cycle day/DPO: CD 16

Ovulation date: June 28 (CD 17) based on previous cycles 

POAS date: July 8 (10 DPO) if I do in fact ovulate on CD17 this cycle but I’ve had a good amount of fertile CM since CD11 and have been terrible with temping so I have a feeling I’m not going to know exact O day so may just randomly start POAS whenever I feel like it haha

Usual cycle length: 28 days

Cycles trying: 2 cycles resulting in pregnancy (2nd trimester loss) and this is our 3rd cycle trying for our rainbow baby.

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): EOD until peak OPK and then three days in a row. Prenatals w/ methylfolate, Vit E, CoQ10, Mucinex. Inconsistent temping. CM tracking. Allllll the things.

Trying anything new this month? Nope, sticking with the above. We’re doing a better job with EOD BD this cycle though so I feel like even if I don’t nail down exact O day, we should be covered.

For fun: US- favorite way to celebrate the Fourth? Non-US or alternative – any summer holiday trips planned as things are slowly opening back up/where would you want to go first? I don’t love crowds so I normally do the 4th v low key at home, but this year is our first living back in my hometown and my brother invited us to watch the city’s fireworks with him and his girlfriend who I’d like to know better so we’ll give that a shot this year.

@hockeybee0104:  Actually doing ok keeping busy and not thinking too much lol! I was so disappointed last month that I think I just got to a place of not caring this month. I had some cramping yesterday but found out half my coworkers are down with a stomach bug, so I’m trying not to read too much into that. Haha! Any new symptoms for you?
