Your age/partner’s age: 28/27
Baby #: 1
Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 1 – wanted to join May POAS right away after being greeted with AF this morning. Booooo
Ovulation Date: May 17 CD30 (at the LATEST I hope, will update if I O earlier)
POAS Date: May 31
Usual Cycle Length: 40 days – however, I had a long 3 month cycle after a mc in December and then this last one was 42 days so I am hoping that means they are going to continue to get shorter!
Cycles Trying: This will be the 3rd since mc; got pg 1st time on that cycle so I know I should not be complaining about waiting but man it is tough.
BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Prenatals, BD timing (SMEP possibly?), charting temps, cm, and cp, ubiquinol, opk, fertilecm, and considering soy to move my o date up! I think that’s everything. So I guess we are trying every trick in the book!
Trying anything new this month? Fertilecm is new to me this month and if I choose to try soy isoflavones, that is also new. I can’t decide on this one – anyone tried it before to move o date up? Also going to try to NOT check cp after O! I did this cycle and totally psyched myself out thinking I was pg. Also going to try to not symptom spot in tww, we will see how that goes. 😉
What are you most looking forward to this summer? Not working as much! I am a teacher so I will take a part time job and hopefully find time to relax. Also hopefully getting pregnant will be something to look forward to. 😀
Side note: My SIL is almost 11 weeks so it has been really difficult for me to remain positive. I want to be a support system for her, but she knows how badly I want to be pg as we were trying at the same time. She got pg, I didn’t, and now I am doing my best to be supportive and positive so that I don’t rain on her parade. It gets tough and it bugs me how much she coddles me, “God has a plan. It will happen, I just know it. Just stay positive. Blah blah blah.” I know she is just trying to help, but it bugs me. Sorry for airing this out there, but I just got my period today and she has been all mother hen about it and I want to ask her to just leave me be without being rude. She will be announcing it soon to family and while I am so happy for her and Brother-In-Law, I am also knowing that it will be tough to be around the familiy feeling excited and happy for her talking about it all the time when I sit and keep trying to conceive. Boohoo, I know I shouldn’t feel sorry for myself, but it feels like it’s in front of my face all the time and I am just ready for my turn. Okay I’m done now, sorry for the rant! 🙂
