@bjenmomma:  Omg BEE! I’m hoping everything is ok. Can you call your OB/GYN or midwife to see if they will see you? Maybe telehealth or even have you come in for betas. I’m hoping for the best for you that whatever is happening resolves safely!

@somathemagical:  I just did some counting, and IF it’s an early positive, then my DH has some magic sperms that managed to survive 8 days between sex and O (so I’m going with a MC from last cycle).

I’m going to test in a couple of days again with a wondfo, but in my heart I’m accepting this as a MC, and hoping for some of that post MC extra fertility.  The bleeding seems to have stopped today though, so I guess that’s a good thing either way.

ROLL CALL

Your age/ partner’s age: 28/28

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/ DPO: CD 1

Ovulation Date: Around June 12th

POAS Date: Gonna try to hold out until June 30th – we shall see how this goes!

Usual Cycle Length: 35ish days

Cycles Trying: 4, this is the first with my knowing how to read a chart and OPKs

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Actually BDing on time! The last 3 months, I had my FW all wrong and I had Hubs pulling out during my ACTUAL FW *facepalm.* Also using OPKs and Charting! 

Trying anything new this month: Actually getting swimmers in me during FW might help, bought Preseed to use, going to try to hit O-3, O-2, O-1, O, & O+1.

Link to your chart if charting:

For fun: How long have you been with your SO and how did you meet? We’ve been together 5 years, married for 6 months. We met at a bar, accidently went home together (first for me in my life), left a personal belonging at his house when I left the next morning (without getting his phone # & couldn’t remember his name) and he found me through Facebook (with no mutual friends, as we are from 2 states across the country)! We got together so he could give me my stuff back and hit it off instantly. I always say that me leaving my stuff at his place was my Cinderella moment in life! Longest drunken one-night stand ever! Super grateful for it though, he is the definitely the coolest and I adore him and can;t wait to make him a daddy becuase I know he will absolutely crush it.

Link to your chart if charting:

For fun: How long have you been with your SO and how did you meet? We’ve been together 2.5 years and we met online. We were going to wait until our June 2020 wedding to start trying but we took the pandemic as a sign and started a little early!! Good luck bees!!!

@bjenmomma:  FX for some of that increased fertility for your next cycle! There are so many Bees on this board who have had a success after an MC x 

I had a super high temp this morning at 5DPO because my cat was lying on my chest for about an hour before I woke, or so DH tells me. Maybe I should get FF to ditch it because it’s way higher than usual, but I don’t think it will matter to the overall pattern as I’m only 5DPO.

What is everyone’s POAS plan? I only have one FRER on purpose so I can’t go nuts, I think I have the potential to become a POAS-aholic. I’ve been tempted to order cheapies online and start testing from 9DPO but I think that will just send me crazy. I’m going to try and hold out until the day my period is due, otherwise I’d be starting the POAS-athon this coming Wednesday.

  • Wedding: June 2029

Your age/ partner’s age: 28/34

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/ DPO: CD1

Ovulation Date: N/A

POAS Date: June 23rd

Usual Cycle Length: 28 days

Cycles Trying: 4 off BC and 3 actively trying

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): I stopped charting this month. It made made me wayyyy to anxious. The past three months showed me I always ovulate between cd13-14 and have a 28-29 day cycle. As well, as I always ovulate  a day after my OPK peak. OPK seem less stressful because I do them for 2-5 days during fertile window- get a peak- then move on for the rest of the month. Having to log in a temp every day had me obsessing over every temp drop or increase and was driving my anxiety off the roof. Also taking prenatal, Vitamin C, B6, probiotics

Trying anything new this month: no charting

Link to your chart if charting: N/A

For fun: How long have you been with your SO and how did you meet? We have been married for 1.5 years civilly and are planning our spiritual wedding that had to be pushed back for this summer or fall.

@BellaBeau:  I usually try to wait to POAS until AF arrives and only have frer too for that reason!  There have been times when I’ve caved and tested early, but it didn’t really help me with tww stress so I try not to!

@BellaBeau:  I do have some cheapies, and I think one FRER at the back of the cupboard. My plan is to wait until at least 12dpo to test with a cheapie, and not crack the FRER unless there is definitely something on the cheapies.

@somathemagical:  Thanks! I am hoping I just missed it as I’ve been using FMU. I’ve been drinking so much water as it’s so hot here so I think later in the day might be to dilute to pick up anything. I had some cramps and a change in CM so hoping I have and the tests just missed it ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž
