sassybeee :  oh no, I’m so sorry! I just had a CP as well, started bleeding 14 dpo and the line never got darker. 20 dpo must be even harder.

AFM: I started taking baby aspirin today. There’s a clinical study that shows that baby aspirin can reduce risk of miscarriage in women with chronic inflammation. 

I dislocated my knee in January and it’s still hurting and not back to normal. So I assume that there’s still some inflammation going on. My OB had put me on baby aspirin during my last pregnancy because of my advanced maternal age.

For fun: What is the strangest TTC advice you’ve heard or tried? Oddly enough, it was from my doctor. He told me to go on vacation and that’s what I’d get pregnant. The worst is that I was in the process of miscarrying for the 2nd time!

What is the strangest TTC advice you’ve heard or tried? The trifecta just seems weird to me! But it all seems weird!

Af has arrived so I’m rolling over at cd 1

Your age/partners age:   34/44

Baby #:   2, 3 for him, he has a 21 year old daughter

Current cycle/dpo:   CD 1

Ovulation Date:   Looks like October 1st based on the length of this past cycle

POAS Date:  AF would be due October 12th, so I’ll try to hold off as long as possible. We can say October 12th though

Usual cycle length:  30 days

Cycles trying:   2

Bfp plan:   Opks and prenatals, that’s about it.

Trying anything new this month:   We will try to have better timing for bd, I think we could have missed an important day 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m hoping to be less obsessive towards the end of the cycle, holding off in starting the pregnancy tests could help

TTC advice received:   Not strange but I’ve been laughed at and told to “just have sex”. Like, thanks! I would be convinced that I’m pregnant for 95% of the month if I did that, tracking helps with my obsessive thoughts (sounds counterintuitive though) because I know when I ovulated and I can remind myself of that when my thoughts kick in. It’s never a good feeling to be laughed at and written off

What is the strangest TTC advice you’ve heard or tried? Definitely can’t stand when people ask me if I have kids and I say no, and then they tell me “oh well you’ve got plenty of time!”. How can anyone be so sure of that??

mrsdfarrar6714 :  Hey darling. I am so so sorry about your son. Some of the ladies in my April 2018 group heard about it through their other birth groups, and some are in your daughter’s birth group, so you really have the whole WB Mamas tribe behind you. I think about you and your family often, and I really hope you get your rainbow baby soon ❤️

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 29/31

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 1

Ovulation Date: September 29 – Oct. 1st (too early to tell!)

POAS Date: Approximately October 14th

Usual Cycle Length: 29 days

Cycles Trying: 3

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements for both of us, exercise, fertility tea, dietary changes, PreSeed, OPKs, NOT buying pregnancy tests

Burned through my last FRER today to make sure I could have a beer with my husband, and am NOT buying more tests until my POAS date (to eliminate premature testing/related anxiety)
