What was your best vacation and why?  The best vacation was, by far, New Zealand. The flight there from the US is not easy, but it was worth every hour on that flight. My husband and I absolutely loved the scenary and the laid-back culture. We also did adventurous activities along with hitting up beautiful beaches. And if you are planning a vacation this year – where are you going? My huband and I are headed to Europe in 2 weeks! Here’s hoping that I don’t come back 10lbs heavier from eating all that gelato and pasta!

ROLL CALL!

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD28 3DPO (I think, waitng for tomorrow’s temp to be sure) 

Ovulation Date: Pretty sure it was the 21st (CD25), but could have been CD25, my temps have been wonky bc of a cold last week (mouthbreathing)

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: My cycles are crazy, shortest ever 17 longest ever 72, but usually between 30-45 haha, so I just take my POAS date from 14DPO. May 5th for me this month! My birthday is this month too, so I am hoping for an early birthday present!

Cycles Trying: This is #2

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Just BD as much as possible when fertile! haha

I also wanted to add that since I’ve been getting acupuncture, my temp shift has been more drastic. So although I can’t vouch for acupuncture helping me conceive, I do believe that it’s purifying/circulating my blood flow. And I definitely feel good after!

Yay, well done for starting a May thread! I was hoping someone would crack sooner rather than later… I toyed with the idea myself but then realised I need to concentrate on my exams until they’re all done in June!

ROLL CALL!

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD11

Ovulation Date: Not sure yet – guessing around 4th May…?

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: POAS date tbc / average cycle length around 32 days

Cycles Trying: This’ll be #5…. So that’s four too many for Mrs I-Want-It-Done-Yesterday here, although I know there are some Bees out there with saintly patience!

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Attempting SMEP after a bit of a fail last month! First cycle charting (not sure how successfully); OPKs; EPO; pre-natals; some guaifenesin; Pre-seed to hand if needed…

Link to Chart, if any: Let’s see if this works… http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/4ae2c3… Nope – can someone help?

and for fun –

I couldn’t pick a favourite! 🙂 We’ll be doing a few local minibreaks this summer, and then off to France in September. Hopefully I won’t be enjoying lots of wine and stinky cheese… *sigh*

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD8.

Ovulation Date: Hoping for May 1st.

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: POAS May 15th. My cycles lengths are irregular, but this month I did a round of Clomid, so I’m hoping it makes me ovulate and have a normal cycle.

Cycles Trying: 9 months.

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Been on Metformin since Feb., took Clomid this cycle. Will have an ultrasound on CD14 to verify if it’s working.

What was your best vacation and why? And if you are planning a vacation this year – where are you going? My best vacation was our honeymoon. We went to the Virgin Islands and had a fantastic time of lying on the beach in gorgeous weather for a week. We hope to get back there again sometime. We have a vacation planned for Memorial weekend to South Carolina with some friends. Hoping to be able to tell them some exciting news once we’re there.

no_elle:  my friend who is practicing to become a midwife suggested the tea to me to help regulate my cycle, but it didn’t work for me. I have PCOS so I’m not sure if that was the issue or not. It did work for her. She only had to try for 2 months to get her BFP.
