For fun – with Spring just around the corner (in the Northern Hemisphere at least!) what are you most looking forward to about the soon-to-be warmer weather?

Getting outside! I hate the cold and winters in NE Ohio are too cold for me to get out. With things warming up we will be doing a lot more walks and hiking

@BellaBeau:  

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 27/30

Baby #: 1

Current cycle day/DPO: CD11

Ovulation date: 28 Feb (but this is only my second cycle off the pill so could be earlier/later)

POAS date: 14 March, if AF hasn’t shown up by then!

Usual cycle length: 30 days but still regulating after coming off the pill

Cycles trying: 2

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): OPKs & temping, fertility vitamins for both me and my husband this time 

Trying anything new this month? I got some conceive plus so we’ll give that a go. Also less symptom spotting and googling in TWW!

For fun – with Spring just around the corner (in the Northern Hemisphere at least!) what are you most looking forward to about the soon-to-be warmer weather? I had to cancel my big wedding in lieu of a registry office ceremony last Summer and the dress I had originally ordered was a huge ball gown so I never got to wear it. Anyway we decided to do a little photoshoot just the two of us in our wedding outfits as soon as lockdown restrictions are eased enough and the weather gets a bit warmer so I’m looking forward to that ๐Ÿ™‚

After lurking on this board for a while, I decided to create a username and join.  Hello everyone.

 

Your age/partner’s age: 36/43

Baby #: 2, have 16 month old.

Current cycle day/DPO: cd25, either at O or about O-1

Ovulation date: today or tomorrow, I’ll go with 2/24

POAS date: 3/9

Usual cycle length: used to be around 31 days, but this is my first full postpartum cycle and I had a chemical pregnancy last month, so this cycle seems very messed up, hence the late ovulation.

Cycles trying: This is the first real cycle, although we managed to catch the first postpartum ovulation last month before we were really trying, but it ended up as a chemical pregnancy.  

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): No temping, it stressed me out too much when I did it before my son.  I’m using OPKs this time, which is new.  

Trying anything new this month? Well, unlike last month, my toddler is now completely weaned.  So that is new, and hopefully that will help us, but who knows.  

For fun – with Spring just around the corner (in the Northern Hemisphere at least!) what are you most looking forward to about the soon-to-be warmer weather?  Playing with my toddler in the yard!  The snow is currently so deep here that he can’t even walk around outside (the snow is deeper than he is tall!)  Looking forward to being able to put him in his spring, kick the ball around, and get him a little play gym!  Also so excited to see daffodils and tulips later this spring.

I’m back, was trying to figure out if I could test in February one more time but I think I’ll hold off until the 1st:

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 40/40

Baby #: 2, our daughter turned 2 in Dec

Current cycle day/DPO: 6DPO

Ovulation date: 2/16 (I think, it was my 1st month temping) 

POAS date: March 1

Usual cycle length: 28/29 days

Cycles trying: this is #6, got pregnant last September after 4 tries but had a MMC and subsequent D&C in December (my 2nd one – we had one at the same time in 2017 before we had our daughter)

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): timing, charting, prenatal sand supplements (see below)

Trying anything new this month? Yup, new supplement recommended by another board, TheraNatal OvaVite Preconception Vitamins, they have CoQ10 which is supposed to improve egg health. Since both my MMC were chromosomal (we had testing done) I figured I’d at least try them.

For fun – with Spring just around the corner (in the Northern Hemisphere at least!) what are you most looking forward to about the soon-to-be warmer weather? Spending more time outside, I am seriously lacking vitamin d

Here from the February one! Fingers crossed for a BFP in March ๐Ÿ™‚

Your age/partner’s age: 27/28

Baby #: 2

Current cycle day/DPO: Currently CD4 – having fun with AF over here lol

Ovulation date: It’s SUPPOSED to be somewhere around March 9. My cycle is pretty regular, and AF came on time this month, so I’m guessing I’m still rather accurate on that front even though I don’t think I ovulated in Feb. 

POAS date: March 23 ๐Ÿ™‚

Usual cycle length: 30 days

Cycles trying: #2

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): Temping, taking prenatals, BD every other day for the whole week of ovulation

Trying anything new this month? BD a bit more frequently and praying my BBT shows a spike x.x

For fun – with Spring just around the corner (in the Northern Hemisphere at least!) what are you most looking forward to about the soon-to-be warmer weather? We are moving into our first house this spring, so I’m really looking forward to a massive declutter and minimalizing in anticipation for the move ๐Ÿ™‚

Ovulation date: March 9

POAS date:  March 24 (if I can hold out that long…)

Trying anything new this month? Offically trying is new for us!

For fun – with Spring just around the corner (in the Northern Hemisphere at least!) what are you most looking forward to about the soon-to-be warmer weather?  It’s still so cold here, but I’m looking forward to camping, shooting matches, and beers on the deck while my kids play outside.

@bjenmomma:  I remember you from the October POAS group (and possibly from 2018, if that isn’t super creepy, I remember your username and we might have been ttc at the same time as I also have a 2 year old). I wanted to say how sorry I am that you also experienced a miscarriage recently. Wishing you the best of luck this month x
