Thanks for creating the board, it’s so nice to have a group of people who understand the struggles!

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD24/8DPO

Ovulation Date: 9/25 I think (could have been 9/27)

POAS/Beta Date: Ideally October 10th, but probably will on October 8th because it’s our anniversary

Usual Cycle Length: 30-32 days, usually 15 day LP

Trying anything new this month?: It’s supposed to be our last month before IUI, but we’re going out of town and waiting on the pre-certification from the insurance, so looks like that will be pushed back to November now

For fun: What’s your favorite quote at the moment? Not sure about this, but I just keep repeating “It will all be worth it in the end.” I had to say that quite a few times after I experienced my first (and hopefully only) hot flash this month.

Just joining this board as the other POAS board is a bit tough for me. I’m not sure if will be POAS this cycle, I have PCOS and have yet to have a period post getting off BC (around the 4 month mark now) even with provera. 

But I did ovulate on the 17th of Sept which was great, now if only I can get a period! 

Wishing all luck this month.

Awesome, love this idea.

 

Your age/partner’s age: 33/41

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD2

Ovulation Date: TBD

POAS/Beta Date: TBD probably end of October, maybe put me on Oct 30 for now

Usual Cycle Length: 28 days unmedicated

Cycles Trying: this is #15

Known fertility issues: all blood work/HSG has been normal, for results of SA which showed low motility. Obgyn wanted to put me on Femara in hopes of boosting ovulation to have better odds with the male factor issue. Recheck SA in November. Try 3 months of Femara and on to fertility clinic in Jan if no luck in the next 3 months.

BFP Plan (BD Timing, supplements, charting, prenatals, etc.): timing EOD, prenatals, ubiquinol, charting with Ava, opk 

Trying anything new this month?: took my first dose of Femara today!

Woohoo thanks for starting!

Your age/partner’s age: 28/31

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: 2dpo

Ovulation Date: Maybe oct 1, maybe today waiting on temp tomorrow.

POAS/Beta Date: Let’s say Oct 12 and see if I last that long

Usual Cycle Length: 28 days 

Cycles Trying: almost 1 year since we started TTC, but most of that has been spent being pregnant or miscarrying so not even sure what to say!

Known fertility issues: iI’ve had 2 missed miscarriages (8 and 10 weeks). All testing has come back normal. They found retained tissue in July which I had removed so I’m hoping this is from the first MC and the reason for the second. 

BFP Plan (BD Timing, supplements, charting, :

BD every day during FW, OPKs, I take prenatals, baby aspirin, omega 3, vit d, folate & ubiquinol. Started charting this month.

Trying anything new this month?: charting for the first time, but my thermometer isn’t great so not sure it will go so well.

For fun: What’s your favorite quote at the moment? “Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness” which I rarely follow these days 😂😂

For fun: What’s your favorite quote at the moment? I’m not really an inspirational quote person. But my mantra for the last few years has been “Sucks to your ass-mar.” It’s from Lord of the Flies when one of the kids is making fun of another’s asthma, but in our house it means something like, “Stop whining about your problems and focus on something you can actually fix.”
