  • Wedding: July 2015

Your age/partner’s age: 34/40

Baby #: 2

Current Cycle Day/DPO:  CD1

Ovulation Date: 2/18

POAS Date: 3/2

Usual Cycle Length:  28-30 days – it is still a little irregular after baby #1.

Cycles Trying: This will be our first month trying for #2. We have a 13 month old now.

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): I dont think we will try anything other than BD during ovulation window this month. May use PreSeed too since that worked pretty well for us with baby #1.

Trying anything new this month? Trying to find more time for sex with a toddler in the house…

Link to your chart if charting: 

For fun: What’s your go to band/song when you can’t decide what to listen to?  My go to these days is my toddler station on Pandora. I don’t get enough time to listen to music alone these days.

I loosely joined the February board, but I won’t be POAS at all in February except for maybe OPKs. Just finishing up a miscarriage now (blighted ovum) so hoping to get things back on track soon. I’m leaving the cycle day/ovulation date blank because I truly have no clue. 

 

Your age/partner’s age: 26/30

Baby #: 2

Current Cycle Day/DPO: 

Ovulation Date:

POAS Date: March 25 is my tentative guess. Just throwing it out there lol 

Usual Cycle Length: 29-31 days

Cycles Trying: Technically 1, since my m/c we weren’t TTC. 

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Prenatals, OPKs to try to get some clue about what’s going on. Supposed to take a test in a few days and needing a BFN so that I know I’m in the clear 

Trying anything new this month? Trying to have a baby! My 9 month old will love a sibling (I hope, lol!)

For fun: What’s your go to band/song when you can’t decide what to listen to? I would have to go with the 90s country station on Pandora lol, it never lets me down!

Your age/partner’s age: 33/35

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 1

Ovulation Date: Around 2/17

POAS Date: March 4th

Usual Cycle Length: Varies; this last one was 30 days, but the one before that was only 22. 

Cycles Trying: This is #10. I’m pretty bummed to be entering the double digits. 

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): timing using OPKs, charting temps and CM, prenatals, DHA, coQ10, B-complex after O

Trying anything new this month? I’m using the Clearblue Advanced ovulation tests. I used it the first couple months we were trying, but then I didn’t want to spend the money on it again, so I was just using the internet cheapie OPKs. But now that 10 months have passed with not a single BFP, I figured why not try it again.

For fun: What’s your go to band/song when you can’t decide what to listen to?  Bruno Mars– his music always puts me in a happy, dance-y mood 🙂

  • Wedding: October 2016

Your age/partner’s age: 30/34

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 29

Ovulation Date: I’m not totally sure I’m ovulating- I’m not sure how accurate my chart is. I’m CD 29 of my first cycle charting anything (and mayyyybe ovulated on CD24), so depending on when/if (in case my cycles are really irregular) AF comes, I’ll know how long my cycles are and can maybe figure out my next ovulation date.

POAS Date: I’m not sure, but I expect it to be in March.

Usual Cycle Length: I’m not sure yet as I haven’t finished one cycle after my first real period post-Nuvaring removal.

Cycles Trying: 1 (February)

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): BD timing, charting, prenatals, preseed, EPO, raspberry leaf tea, will try mucinex and softcups

Trying anything new this month? Actually trying!

Link to your chart if charting: I’m not sure how to do this, I’m using Kindara, not Fertilityy Friend (though I took those “courses” they offer).

For fun: What’s your go to band/song when you can’t decide what to listen to? I either listen to the Bonnie and Clyde broadway cast recording or The Last 5 Years. I’m on a bit of a showtunes kick 🙂

nursebee22 :  Hi! My OB gave me an RE referral with zero qualms. It was based upon the fact that I’ve been charting a 10-day LP and have very short (3 day), light periods (would maybe almost fill 1 tampon/day).

Joining March since I removed myself from February because of anxiety regarding trying again for the first time after my MMC in December (DH and I agreed to just take a month off), hopefully this month is emotionally better:

Your age/partner’s age: 37/37

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD25

Ovulation Date: I’m guessing 2/26 based on my Ovia app

POAS Date: I’m guessing 3/10 but who knows if my 2nd cycle after the MC will be normal. But either way, it’s during our honeymoon so I’m taking a whole bunch of pregnancy tests with me

Usual Cycle Length: 28 days before MC – 29 days first cycle after

Cycles Trying: #3 but 1st after MC 

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Prenatals, OPKs & Ovia app

Trying anything new this month? Nope

Link to your chart if charting: n/a

For fun: What’s your go to band/song when you can’t decide what to listen to? Artist – Jay Z

Ovulation Date: Feb 21

POAS Date: March 7 (but we all know I’ll start peeing on everything come March 2)

Usual Cycle Length: 28 days (just wrapped up a 32 day cycle though – which may have been anovulatory, or I might have just ovulated late)

Trying anything new this month? Darling Husband had his SA today, so depending on his results I may be booked for an HSG.
