  • Wedding: April 2015

Your age/partner’s age: 39/39

Baby #: 2

Current Cycle Day/DPO: 12dpo

Ovulation Date: Tracker estimates 10/23 but I’m hoping early since our last chance to BD will be the 19th

POAS Date: 11/4, we’ll be abroad until very late on the 3<sup>rd</sup> so, if AF hasn’t showed by then, I’ll test when we get home

Usual Cycle Length: 28ish days

Cycles Trying: 5<sup>th</sup> – bad timing, CP and 2 I have no ideas

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): prenatals and BD EOD until we leave for the airport.  I’m thinking (hoping?) maybe O has been earlier in cycle and the fact that we stared BD earlier this month will help

Trying anything new this month? nope

Link to your chart if charting: N/A

For fun: Do you have any family traditions that you do around the Holidays? Please share!  Nothing specific, just loads of family time since we are a mixed religion family and celebrate EVERYTHING!

whoa_its_ash :  we try to go to Englad for x-mas and New Years to see DH’s family as well.  We planned to go earlier this year (leaving tomorrow!) party b/c I expected to be 6months pregnant by the holidays this year (best laid plans) but I love Dec/Jan in the UK 🙂

For fun: Do you have any family traditions that you do around the Holidays? Please share! Not traditions per say but we’re hosting thanksgiving for my side of the family this year in our new(ish) home (bought in April) so i’m super excited about that. It will also be our first Christmas in our house which is very special as well!

Feel like my temps are a little wonky this month. They were higher than usual and then dropped the last 2 days.

OPK question if anyone has any insight/wisdom- I’ve heard that you should test with an OPK in both mornings and afternoons so you don’t miss a surge. (I use internet cheapies so there’s nothing really in terms of instructions about when I should test.) The issue is, I stay SUPER hydrated while at work. It’s normal for me to fill my 24 oz Tervis tumbler at least 3 times. I get home and my pee barely has a yellow tinge to it. Should I just try to drink less water when I think it might be around the right time?

So it looks like I am going to ovulate soon according to my temps. Fingers crossed that my temps go up the next three days. I have a fear of not being able to ovulate which is the reason I started charting.

bayoubee :  I think it’s better to try to have your urine a little more concentrated when you test. I think holding it for at least 2-4 hours is best?

I also don’t think you need to test morning and afternoon until you get closer to O. You can start with just mornings and as your normal O date gets closer you can do both morning and evening.

bayoubee :  I would pee and then hold it without drinking anything for 2-3 hours. I also struggle with this because I like to drink and pee a lot but at least when I’m at work I’m so busy during the last couple hours so it’s not too hard.

ChiTownBee27 :  Haha yes! I had to look you up on the Facebook roll call bc the username sounded familiar. I think we were the first two to have BFPs on our group.
