Feels absolutely CRAZY that I am joining this board… crazy and a tad nervewracking!!

Your age/partner’s age:25/27

Baby #:1

Current Cycle Day/DPO:Currently on CD 19 … Not officially starting until next cycle. 

Ovulation Date:I will ovulate in the next two days, but we are officialy starting to TTC next cycle. That ovulation date will be June 21 (CD 21). 

POAS Date: I am new to this – what is the earliest you can test? I was thinking about aiming for June 30 which would be 9 DPO. If that’s too early, I may have to wait til the July POAS board in created although I just really wanna join!!

Usual Cycle Length:32-35 Days 

Cycles Trying:This will be our first!

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): I’ve been taking prenatals for 2 months now! I also starting charting 3-4 months ago. I have gotten a little lazy with it in the last 2 months, but only because my ovulation and cycles were dead on. I feel like I know enough about my cycle now, that I can casually try for the first few months, without worrying too much about tracking. I don’t want too much pressure at first, so we will probably BD when we feel like it, and maybe a little extra when I notice EWCF. 

Link to Chart, if any: I will add this later, although it isn’t too filled in for the last few months. 

Just for fun – what was your favorite trip or give up a great local spot that is a unknown gem: Our honeymoon! We went to Hawaii last August and it was the greatest trip ever. We went to Honolulu and Maui, and spent two weeks seeking out the coolest spots on the islands! Tons of hiking and swimming in amazing little waterfalls!

 

The next 30 days seriously cannot go by soon enough! I feel like I have been waiting forever! Cannot wait for the day that I actually get to POAS! Good luck ladies!!

Just for fun – what was your favorite trip or give up a great local spot that is a unknown gem. For our honeymoon back in March 2014, we went on a Mediterranean cruise. Started and ended in Italy, with stops in Tunisia, Spain, and France as well. It was AMAZING! ๐Ÿ™‚

Just for fun – Favorite trip was definitely our honeymoon. I actually have a funny story about our trip. We planned our honeymoon 4 months after we were married because I was still in the ultrasound program. We booked a resort in the Riviera Maya. It was my first time leaving the country so I was really nervous. We had made all the arrangements online.We booked through a travel agency so I decided to call the resort directly to be sure they had our reservations. They didn’t. They were booked to capacity. This was 2 days before our flights so the travel agency upgraded us to the most expensive resort instead. It was double our honeymoon budget. We ended up at Ibersostar Grand Paraiso. Beautiful resort. I highly recommend it. We were treated like celebrities there.

We visit an island near QLD called Stradbroke Island.  White sandy beaches, great durfing, beautiful nature walks with animals sightings like dolphins and sting rays, a great pub with beautiful seafood and the best part is you rent houses rather than hotels/motels.  Its fantastic and well worth a visit if your here in Aus.

Hmm, this is really hard because we love doing road trips and have done so many! The best I think would have to be Melbourne and seeing koalas in the wild just on the side of the road as well as the 12 Apostles. But honestly, I love traveling anywhere with my SO and we somehow make every holiday special, can’t say I’ve had a bad holiday with him. ๐Ÿ™‚

wontonsoup:  Wow, what an awesome twist to that honeymoon story!

 

Funny story…last month, the day after we got back from our honeymoon, I told DH I wanted to wait until 2017 to TTC. I’m the Maid/Matron of Honor in my friend’s wedding this November and I was nervous about that. Anyway, that day we bought a brand new box of condoms (I’m not on BC.) Literally two hours later I had a break down because I didn’t want to use the condoms and wanted to TTC instead. Poor DH, how confusing! 

So that was midway through last cycle. Our trip ended up throwing off my cycle and I ovulated a week later than usual and totally missed it. The whole cycle felt off.

So this cycle, I’m throwing in every trick I know! It feels like this is our real first month trying. I’ve been calling it my BFP cycle ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Your age/partner’s age:25/25

Baby #:1

Current Cycle Day/DPO:CD3

Ovulation Date: Right around June 12, CD28

POAS Date: I’m going to say June 24th (10DPO) but let’s be real…I’d be shocked if I waited past 8 DPO lol

Usual Cycle Length: 39-40 days

Cycles Trying:This is our second

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Just started B6 for CM and drinking plenty of water and green tea leading up to O. I will be charting, using OPKs, BD every day in the fertile week, and I’m going to keep up with my daily yoga.

Just for fun – what was your favorite trip or give up a great local spot that is a unknown gem: We just got back from our honeymoon in Maui last month! It was incredible. We went with an astronomer and a small group up Haleakala crater (10,000 feet up) to stargaze and watch the sunset above the clouds. She had her telescope up there and we got to see the rings on Jupiter! It was absolutely surreal.

My favorite place to go in the world is New Orleans!  We love Jazz and gooood food and that is the mecca for both ๐Ÿ™‚  We do a lot of traveling (see above re: South Africa next week!) so it’s hard to pick but we could go back to NOLA every year and never get tired of it!

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD10

Ovulation Date: CD28 (6th June) but hopefully sooner. I stopped taking BCP in February and have had 38 day cycles (approx) since. So frustrating!

POAS Date: I only have a 10/11 day luteal phase. FF says my period is due 18th June so I will POAS then if all looks well. I also have a friend’s wedding that day so I would want to know if I can drink.  

Usual Cycle Length: 38 days

Cycles Trying: 3rd cycle

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): pre-conception vitamins, magnesium, vitamin D, charting (2nd month) and OPKs. We’ll try to time BD in fertile window although hubby is currently working away Mon-Wed every week for the next 8 weeks and going on a boys trip next weekend so not looking promising *sigh*

Ive been all over the caribbean, europe and southeast asia, and I have to say I could always be convinced to go back to Paris, or really anywhere in France. They really value their history, and the food everywhere is really good. That being said, Malta is gorgeous with lots to do, and Costa Rica is also fantastic and a really fun place to visit (surfing anyone?!) Pura vida!
