ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 26/37

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 7

Ovulation Date: I think around 2/29, CD 19

POAS Date: 3/13

Usual Cycle Length: 31-32 days

Cycles Trying: I say 3, but my husband says this will be #2. The first month, we literally decided to start trying towards the end of my cycle, didn’t know anything about when I ovulated,etc. 

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Taking prenatals and vitamin b6 complex. I got a fever last night, still have it–but as soon as I feel better, just going to BD EOD, then when I get a postive OPK, we will BD 3 days in a row….also, started temping this cycle, so hoping to confirm ovulation and see if it matches OPK’s. Also made changes to my diet…. trying to cut out diet soda, coffee (as much as I can… I love it), drink at least 1/2 gallon of water a day, and just eat more veggies.

 

I really hope this is the month for all the ladies on here!!! BFP’s all over the place, please!

Good morning ladies! I am new to the TTC boards (and haven’t been on WB in such a long time – I didn’t realize how much I missed it!) We are new to TTC and so i’m learning as I go!

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 25/25

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 19, DPO Well, I’m guess today or tomorrow so DPO -1 or 0? (I’m guessing based on CM and OPK I will O today or tomorrow)

Ovulation Date: 2/17 or 2/18

POAS Date: Help! This confuses me, would POAS date be first day of your next cycle (granted AF doesn’t show up?) if so 2/29 (oops does that put me in the Feb boards?!)

Usual Cycle Length: 29-31 days (this is our first month charting/temping I know my usual cycle length but never paid attention to fertility signgs so things may change!)

Cycles Trying: 2 (last month was a “okay we’re really going to do this” but didn’t chart/etc)

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): FF Charting (this will be second month), I’m going to switch to vaginal temping as my oral temps are all over the place and I think it is because I’m a mouth breather at night, prenatals, BD timing (BD every day after EWCM or +OPK), 

Link to Chart, if any: 

FOR FUN THIS MONTH! – Do you have a hobby? Do you collect anything particular? if No, do you have a favorite garage sale or auction find? Tell us a bit about it. My current hobby is our new home and home improvement projects. We are almost finished with our main level. I also enjoy thrifting/antiquing. I actually used to thrift and sell for profit on ebay! I did this while I was in school and sometimes miss it!

Looking forward to joining in with you ladies on conversation and commradarie!

  • Wedding: April 2015 - Anchor Inn, MD

Your age/partner’s age: 30/34

Baby #: 1st for me, 2nd for Darling Husband

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD13

Ovulation Date: FF predicts 2/20 — past two months I’ve Od CD15 and CD16

POAS Date: 3/5

Usual Cycle Length: 29-30 days so far after Mirena removal

Cycles Trying: This is #3, although we’re taking a more NTNP approach for the next two months to try to stress less and because weren’t sure if we wanted a Nov or Dec due date — so NTNP is our compromise 🙂

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Just prenatals and some general BD timing this go around. May also try eating pineapple/pineapple core this time, because I like pineapple anyway so why not?

Link to Chart, if any: Taking a break from charting.

I’m a nerd and research everything so I really like geneology research. I have to take breaks occasionally when I hit a wall, but it’s so cool when you start finding info — it’s like little clues or puzzle pieces to help put together your ancestoral past. So cool to me!

  • Wedding: September 2013

Your age/partners age: 29/33

Baby Number: 1

Current Cycle Day: 14

Ovulation Date: Should be tomorrow if past cycles are an indicator. Currently experiencing a lot of EWCM – more than usual. Maybe that is because of the chemical we had last cycle? I feel like I read somewhere that your body is very fertile after a chemical (this could be hogwash internet science though). 

POAS date: March 1

Usual Cycle Length: 28 days

Cycles trying: is this really #7? We’ve had 2 chemicals. This is the first cycle after a confrimed chemical. 

BFP Plan: Timing, OPKs, and CM tracking

No chart:

For fun this month: I’m kind of passionate about decorating. We are new-ish homeowners and I feel like I spend every free Satruday combing through antique and home decor stores searching for hidden gems to spiff up and place in our home.  I am basically a Johanna Gaines wannabe (with a little less rustic taste). Gah I just love her!

I just like to run. I’m not super good at it, and not super fast, but it’s relaxing and one of my favorite ways to unwind. Unfortunately I’m on a doctor-ordered hiatus until given the go ahead.

I have a lot of stressful situations in my life. So, I just invested in an adult coloring book for relaxation. I like it more than I expected. Lol. It helps clear my mind.

JMer711:  That’s cool!  Have you found out anything really interesting about your family?  Where do you usually do your research?

Pepper123:  Joanna is so sweet!  Her style is a bit rustic for me but I think she does a really good job and I sure wouldn’t complain if she wanted to decorate my house.  🙂  I hope the hogwash science turns out to be true for you!  

801wife:  Good luck with your egg retrieval!!  That is so exciting!  I hope it goes perfectly!

bloomingflower:  Thank you for starting another thread.  Hopefully the threadstarter’s luck will kick in this month for you!  🙂

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 27/33

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD9

Ovulation Date: I usually O CD17 so 2/25? 

POAS Date: I’m guessing my beta will be 3/11  

Usual Cycle Length: things are pretty wackadoodle right now, my cycle is usually clockwork at 31 days but last cycle really stressed me out (first one!) so I started 5 days late on CD36. That was a wake up call so I am working hard to stay low stress

Cycles Trying: this will be our 2nd

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): We’re same sex so we’re working with an RE. Monitoring starting on CD11, this Friday. We’ll do an IUI with donor sperm at some point in the next 9 days… My guess so far is 2/24. everything else: prenatals, vitamin D, fish oil, yoga challenge to de stress and raspberry leaf tea until CD 13. After IUI, I’ll do the pineapple thing because like JMer said, I like pineapple and it can’t hurt. Think I’ll put it in a smoothie.

 

FOR FUN THIS MONTH! – Do you have a hobby?  Do you collect anything particular?  if No, do you have a favorite garage sale or auction find?  Tell us a bit about it. — I take cello lessons! I’m terrible but I don’t care one bit.

Used to be big on collecting Hard Rock Cafe shot glasses, but haven’t been anywhere recently that has them so it’s slowed down. I also collect any sort of memoribilia from concerns I go to (usually keychains, megnets), and trips taken! I guess I do workout, and consider that a hobby. I’d like to get back into running more, or jogging as I wouldn’t call what I do a run. Ha.

JMer711:  I want to know more about how you research!! I just did my DNA analysis and want to try and research my family, both of my parents are adopted so I didn’t know my ethnicity!
