Baby #: 2

Current cycle day/DPO: CD13

Ovulation date: I think 10/28 or 10/29

POAS date: 11/12

Usual cycle length: 28-31 days

Cycles trying: This is #8

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): Woof. OPKs, aiming to hit O-1 and O for BD. Taking prenatals, new supplements. Started acupuncture last month. 

Trying anything new this month? I started taking l-arginine and Vitamin E which are supposed to help with blood flow. Not yet confirmed, but I think I have a problem with my uterine lining as my periods are very scanty. I also am on Week 4ish of Chinese Herbs from the acupuncturist. We also had our first appointment with an RE yesterday who took labs for AMH and TSH. Next steps are Day 3 tests, but that won’t be until mid-November. Maybe I won’t need them, but I am not getting my hopes up.

For fun: What is your favorite Holiday food dish to make/take to gatherings? I love love love holiday cooking! For Thanksgiving, I love to make stuffing – a very traditional recipe. For Christmas, I love making stuffed mushrooms – we always do an appetizer dinner for Christmas Eve and they are always a huge hit! I also love making an Onion and Broccoli casserole that has a cheese sauce – a recipe that was my Nana’s and passed down to us.

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 38/39

Baby #: 2

Current cycle day/DPO: CD12/maybe DPO 1?

Ovulation date: 2 rounds of letrozole messed up my cycle so I may have ovulated on CD 10! My best guess is 10/25 but waiting for crosshairs on FF to confirm

POAS date: 11/5

Usual cycle length: 28

Cycles trying: 7…it took 7 cycles to get pregnant with baby 1 so big hopes for this one!

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): I take a small mountain of supplements and have eliminated alcohol and caffiene this month and am trying to eat mainly paleo. I’m also doing weekly acupuncture and Chinese herbs. 

Trying anything new this month? I heard about seed cycling so I’m trying that (seeds are yummy so not a hard thing to do!)

For fun: What is your favorite Holiday food dish to make/take to gatherings? I wish I had one! I’m not a very confident cook and I tend to like “healthy” food that’s not especially delicious so I don’t usually cook to share – if you have any good holiday recipes, send them my way!

Ovulation date: 11/11 make a wish!

so today FF is giving me crosshairs and saying I’m actually 4dpo… meaning I ovulated CD10. Feeling super defeated- has anyone actually had a successful pregnancy with ovulation so early? I think that can’t be a good sign for this month…

@tomatotoes:  I am in a similar boat. After ovulating late last cycle, I started having a ton of ewcm on CD6 and a positive OPK yesterday at CD10…like wtf body.

Ovulation date: 10/28

POAS date: 11/10

Usual cycle length: irregular

BFP plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements etc.): all the supplements. Saw an RE this cycle and this may be our last shot the old fashioned way before we move to iui, if I can get my husband on board.

Trying anything new this month? No, but this is my first cycle in two years where I ovulated before cd20. Maybe that’s a good sign?

Today is CD15 and still haven’t seen a rise on OPK sticks. So frustrating – last month I peaked on CD14, but the cycle before I didn’t peak until CD17. We haven’t BD since Sunday, so maybe we will tonight. We get burnt out so fast, so I really want to hit O-1 and O if possible.

I did just get a call from my RE that my AMH and TSH was normal. AMH was 3.36 and TSH was 0.6. They want me to call on CD1 to schedule my CD3 labs and ultrasound. I know AMH isn’t the end all be all, but I am feeling somewhat reassured by it. We are going to drop off DH’s sample for his SA when I go back on CD3.
