YAY!!  I am SO EXCITED to finally join the POAS boards!  This is our first cycle trying πŸ™‚

Current Cycle Day/DPO:  CD9, expecting to ovulate around October 6

Ovulation Date:  TBA

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length:  Put me down for October 17 as of now; not sure exactly when I’ll ovulate, but that is my birthday so I will probably test then no matter what!  The way I see it, either I’ll get a very exciting birthday present or I’ll know I can drink at my birthday party that weekend.  Happy either way πŸ™‚

Cycles Trying: Our first one!! Been charting for 5 cycles now.

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.):  DH wants to have fun for the first few cycles and not really “try,” but of course I am charting and as soon as I know I’m in my FW I will be initiating like crazy!  I’m also taking prenatals, fish oil, and bought some pre-seed to use as needed.

Link to Chart, if any:  I chart, but on paper.

and for fun, in honor of Halloween, two options, answer one or both!

What is your favorite candy..Halloween or otherwise? My favorite Halloween candy would be a tie between cow tails and tootsie rolls.  My favorite candy of all is very, very dark chocolate filled with caramel.

What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever had?  I LOVE HALLOWEEN!  Definitely one of my favorite holidays.  My mom/grandmother and I have always made my costumes.  Best one was probably when I was an Oscar Award for Best Costume.  My mom traced my outline in stretchy gold fabric and then sewed it together so I was completely encased in gold.  It was really cool.  I also went as a giant squid one year, which I made myself.  I always enter costume contests and won with both of those!

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD8

Ovulation Date: 10/2

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: 10/16. Usually 28 day cycle

Cycles Trying: 2nd cycle post MC and 3rd total.

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): BD starting tomorrow ED or EOD depending on how we feel going until the 9th so I don’t miss my O. Fairly certain I totally missed my O last time because we stopped BD too soon into the week. Nothing other than that. I usually lay down for a while after, so hopefully that helps!

Link to Chart, if any: No chart.

and for fun, in honor of Halloween, two options, answer one or both!

What is your favorite candy..Halloween or otherwise? I love KitKats, Twix, and Reese’s peanut butter cups! But I cut out sugar in my weight loss plan so boo…Maybe one or two treats on Halloween though πŸ˜‰

What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever had? When I was a kid my mom made me this awesome calico cat costume and painted my face. She was the best DIY costume maker. I won 1st place! I also went as Dorothy one year and won 1st place πŸ™‚ Best costume since adulthood would have to be a container of Mac n Cheese “Easy mac” haha.

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD15

Ovulation Date: today? TBD

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: AF should be here 10/12.  Usual cycle length is 28 days.

Cycles Trying: 1.5, but really just one since when we started trying last cycle I was already past O so now I know we had no chance!

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Prenatals.  Lots of BDing which makes DH happy.. he is so happy with all the initiations by me

What is your favorite candy..Halloween or otherwise? Starburst jelly beans!! So delicious!

What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever had? I am a redhead, so one halloween I was Pippi Longstockings.  Put wire in my two pigtail braids to make them stand up.  It was pretty awesome.

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD15

Ovulation Date: Fertility Friend estimates it on 9/23, but I think it was more 9/24.

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: 25 days / cycle, so POAS day is 10/6ish. I’ll be traveling for work, though, so I probably won’t POAS until I was home, which would be 10/10.

Cycles Trying: This is cycle number 2

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Prenatal vitamins, avoiding caffeine (ughhh). In terms of BDing, we’re just kind of going as the mood strikes, and trying to take a laid back approach.

Link to Chart, if any: No chart until 2015

and for fun, in honor of Halloween, two options, answer one or both!

What is your favorite candy..Halloween or otherwise? I like Reeses and Starburst

What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever had? Well, I’m a chubby brunette named Megan. My best Halloween costume was as Meg from Family Guy πŸ™‚

What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever had?

I was a shy girl and never said boo but my costume seemed to get their attention, I loved that costume.

I’m incapable of typing! 

Ovulation date should say SEPT 22-24. I typed Oct by accident.  Whoops!

ugh, I really thought I was going to O yesterday.  Didnt get the temp spike I expected this morning.  I really hope that I haven’t stressed myself into a longer cycle, that seems to be pretty common.  My POAS is definitely TBD now!

HeyJude72:  Thank you so much for getting this party started!  My wife and I are going for our 3rd IUI this month!  For those who don’t know (which is probably all of you, since I’m not very active) it’s my wife that is having the IUIs done, not me.

Current Cycle Day/DPO:  CD 6 today.

Ovulation Date:  With PCOS we’re never exactly sure.  Estimating 10/06.

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length:  If we can hold out, the 20th.  She doesn’t have an average cycle length unfortunately.

Cycles Trying:  Lucky #3!

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.):  Baseline US CD 2, 100mg Clomid CD 5-9, 2nd US CD 12, possible trigger shot, 1 IUI with frozen donor sperm after + OPK.
