Love the Irish references! I am Irish too!

I paid a ridiculous fortune for a onesie from the UK with Randy “Macho Man” Savage on it that says “Oooh Yeah!”. DH is obsessed with 80s/90s wrestling. I plan on giving it to him when we get a positive.

Here’s to our BFP’s this month!! I literally have 4 friends who have had babies in the past 8 months and another one on the way soon. I am ready!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your age/partner’s age: Both 28 🙂

Baby #: 1

BFP Plan: Prenatels, charting, OPK’s, timing, eating more soy before ovulation, eating pineapple core after ovulation for 5 days (helps implantation), Pre-Seed, and the good ole hips in the air for 30 minutes 😉

Do you have a hobby? I have a home-based business called Paparazzi Accessories. Everything is only $5!! I go to craft shows and do online Facebook parties (haha let me know if you want to do one to get free jewelry!). You can check out my website: https://paparazziaccessories.com/43516

Hello! Popping over from February board. Congrats to all of the positives so far! 

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 32/34

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD1

Ovulation Date: Estimated around 3/10

POAS Date: 3/23

Usual Cycle Length: 26 days

Cycles Trying: #3

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): timing w/ Ovia tracking app, prenatals, Fertility Tea (helped with my spotting this past month), might start using OPK this month

 

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. Is travel considered a hobby? Since we knew we were trying for a baby this year, my husband and I went to The Netherlands, Iceland, Montana, and Colorado last year. We are still planning out this year, which is a little bit harder, but think that Banff, Canada and Kauai need to somehow make the list.

JMer711:  That’s so cute! We’re not Irish but DHs birthday is the 12th so I’m hoping I can give him the best gift! His favorite team is the Broncos and I saw a cute broncos onesie a couple of months ago. I was soooo tempted to buy it then. Now that they won the Super Bowl, it should be easy to find again. Also, my dads birthday is coming up too and we’re throwing a bday party for him. It would really be nice to give him a “grandpa” gift since it would be his first. Wishful thinking

Hi guys, so after talking to my husband we’ve decided not to ttc this month after all. As i mentioned in my roll call, we have an out of state wedding in May, and do not want to be newly pregnant at that time since the bachelorette party is hot tubs/spas/amusement park things. With all the friends and family that will be there, I just wouldn’t feel comfortable with the majority of them knowing I was pregnant yet. So. Please remove me from the list blooming flower! It sucks, but it’s only for 3 months so hopefully it’ll go by fast. 

Good luck to everyone this month ❤️ I’m sure I’ll be stopping in from time to time!

lily101814:  Just saw your note – this happened to me just this month. Normally I have a fairly standard 28-29 day schedule. At the end of Jan I went in for my annual PAP (which happened to be the same date as my ovulation – bummer) and my period was a week late. I spoke with my doctor and she thinks that the stress of the Pap Smear may have delayed my ovulation. I know I’m sensitive, but couldn’t believe it!

I had PMS-like symptoms for about 12 days. (My poor husband was ready to shoot me, the stress of not knowing definitely made it worse!)  My period was a week late, I had 2 BFNs – so frustrating and stressful! It’s like, body get back to normal, please.

Last week I finally felt “normal” no symptoms, bloating, spotting – and hopefully I am on schedule again. I kept track of my symptoms – Dr. said not to worry until the period had been delayed 3 weeks.

froghop22:  It’s so frustrating!

I normally have pretty regular cycles too. I was incredibly stressed and slightly sick the first two weeks of my cycle. But I felt the same way! How is my body really that sensitive to those things?! 

I actually had to take a weddingbee break, and I stopped temping and taking OPKs bc I could feel it just making my stress worse! But judging by my CM and ovulation cramps I think it’s safe to say it finally happened. If I don’t get a BFP this month, I think I’ll actually just be relieved to have AF.

FX your cycle goes right back to normal length this month!

Bees, after 4 months of peeing on strips, I finally got my first positive OPK. I’ve never been happier to see a smiley face. I think that I have probably been ovulating all along, but Wondfos just don’t seem to work for me. It could also be that I always test in the am because it is most convenient. But I just did a 4 hour hold with a digital OPK and it worked!  Now, fx that positive OPK becomes a BFP!

So my husband and I sucked at ttc this cycle. I took the last bfn pretty hard and i’m apparently suppose to o today but I think it was yesterday or the day before. I’ve been really sick so my temps are all over the place and we bd only once on the first day of my FW.  Even though we’re pretty much already out this cycle, i’m ok with it. Last month was emotionally exhausting. I had a lot of stuff going on professionally these last few months and all the work and ttc stress was a lot to absorb. I won’t poas unless by some miracle AF doesn’t show and i’ll be pretty quiet until next cycle. I’m wishing you guys SO much luck though and i’ll definitely follow along to see the bfps roll in. Good luck!

bloomingflower:  Thanks! I know it is a little silly to be that excited over a positive OPK, but I was really starting to think that I wasn’t ovulating. Now I at least have some hope.
