Just got AF, so rolling over here!

Your age/partner’s age: 27/34

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD1

Ovulation Date:  estimating 10/20, but I ovulated late this month so not sure if next month will be thrown off as well.

POAS Date: estimating 11/3ish. Will update once I O

Usual Cycle Length: usually 26-27 days, but this month was 34. I think I stressed myself out about temping so much that I pushed back O.

Cycles Trying: this will be cycle 4

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): BD timing, charting BBT and CM, prenatals.

Trying anything new this month? Going to use OPKs this month

Link to your chart if charting: idk how to link it!

For fun: Do you have any family traditions that you do around the Holidays? Please share! I love our Christmas Eve tradition! My family is very catholic so we dont eat meat on Christmas Eve. One year there was something going on so we picked up Long John Silvers fried fish for dinner because my mom couldnt cook. Now its tradition and every Xmas Eve my mom cooks beautiful sides and a whole fancy dinner with Long John Silvers fish.

AF is 3 days late but I’ve had 2 BFNs so I’m pretty sure I’m gonna end up here. Will add my official roll call whenever AF decides to show up.

Hey everyone! I’m heavily involved in lurking and posting on the wedding side of the house, but this is my first post on TTC (exciting). My husband and I kind of looked at each other when my pills ran out last month and thought “why not now”. I think I  understand most of the acronyms now that I’ve studied up. 

Your age/partner’s age: 27/28

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: I’m not sure yet since I just went off the pill less than a month ago, I’ll be to regulate with real periods and could tell.

Ovulation Date: Sept 19ish (maybe)

POAS Date: late October maybe, though my guess is it won’t be necessary since I’ll get my period before that

Usual Cycle Length: 26 days (before the pill)

Cycles Trying: 1

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): We’ll keep it normal the first few months, so I think I’ll just log my periods in my tracker as per usual

Trying anything new this month? N/A

Link to your chart if charting: 

For fun: No traditions yet, each year we change something and say “maybe this will be our tradition”, but it never is 🙂

 

 Edit to say: sorry I already messed up, I think I’m not supposed to post here unless I’m texting Nov. 1. Won’t mess this up again!

The holidays are usually pretty crazy for us trying to make the rounds to see family. We have started a tradition for our immediate family doing a North Pole themed train ride. Last year we did it in Colorado, so beautiful! This year we may or may not be going to Colorado so I have booked tickets in our hometown!
