Congrats to the BFPs!!!
Congrats to the BFPs!!!
AF showed. Rolling over!
I’m rolling over as well.
Your age/partner’s age: 31/38
Baby #: 1
Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 17 / 3DPO
Ovulation Date: 5/13
POAS Date: 5/29 (day AF is due, though I’ll probably end up testing early)
Usual Cycle Length: 27-32 days
Cycles Trying: 12 (but 7 really trying)
BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): We got O-1, O, and O+1!
Trying anything new this month? We got started with BDing a bit late but still managed to hit 3 fertile days assuming my chart is correct.
Link to your chart if charting:
Had to use the FAM detector this month, advanced detector had me O’ing on CD 13 which I don’t think was right.
For Fun: Whats your favorite spring activity? Working out in the yard! Planted some more roses and it’s so nice to be outside before it starts to get too hot.
Well, we’re rolling over to June. Period just showed up this morning. But on the plus size I think the B6 I’ve been taken may have helped me lengthen my LP a little… though I’m not completely sure, it was a weird chart this month.
In happier news, we just bought a house last night! We’re in love with it but it’s a fixer-upper that will need months of renos, so it’s not the worst thing that we don’t have the deadline of a pregnancy due date hanging over us yet. We’re in a super-competitive market with lots of bidding wars (this was our third offer) so we’re very excited and relieved that we scored something good!!
I’m not sure I can wait until my recommended test date from FF. I see lots of women test at like 9 or 11 dpo. How did/do you make the best choice for your test date?
I know I should be patient. But my symptom spotting is insane (even though I know it’s not physically possible this early).
piper628 : Feel free to test early, but what kept me from testing early is knowing that it could be a BFN, but my hopes would still be up because I would think, “maybe it’s still too early?!” Then AF would come, and the disappointment would be worse. At least when my bbt dropped at the end of my cycle, I knew it was over, and once AF shows, I wallow for a day, and I have a new plan for the next cycle.
So according to Fertility Friend, which seems pretty accurate based on my CM, temps, and OPKs, I should test on May 28th, which is the date AF is expected. AF is being a bit wonky these past few cycles. She’s moving around a bit so we’ll see, but hopefully she doesn’t come at all this cycle! According to FF, we had perfect timing this cycle and I’m 4DPO.
