Hey all. I’m supposed to be like ~8-9 weeks pregnant but I’m having a missed miscarriage and have a D&c schedule for Wednesday 😥 I’m not sure if I will POAS in October but figured I’d roll call anyway  

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 37/46

Baby #: 2 – baby boy is 2 weeks short of 1 year old

Current Cycle Day/DPO: negative days lol

Ovulation Date: ?

POAS Date: ?

Usual Cycle Length: 31 days but my cycle is wonky from being postpartum and obviously will be from this MC

Cycles Trying: we had two cycles of NTNP and got pregnant with this now-MC. So I guess this will be our third. We conceived our son on our first try, and got pregnant easily this time too, so I hope it’ll happen quickly again for us ❤️

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.):  I’m going to temp, time our BD well, and obviously take prenatals as it’s super important early on!

Trying anything new this month? Try not to stress lol

What is the strangest TTC advice you’ve heard or tried? “Stop trying and it’ll happen” sooooo annoying

KittyYogi :  I’m so sorry for your loss. That’s so horrible. Even though I just had a CP, losing a baby at 8 weeks must be so much worse since you’re starting to feel more confident about the pregnancy. 

catmom17 :  thank you. I was very sad for a while. I imagined my life with the new baby, gave up my office to make it the new nursery. I’m feeling a bit better now. It is what it is.

I think I am 2DPO, FF friend thinks I am 3dpo but I disagree. The temperature change was not as clear as compared to the previous cycles but I am feeling super tired and have sore hips. So it’s probably safe to say that I ovulated. This is my first month temping vaginally.

The first super low temp was oral but I was sick, congested and couldn’t keep my mouth closed because I needed to breathe LOL. The second temp was the first time vag and I might have had a little fever. 

I think our BD timing was decent but I am freaking out a bit because I had a mocha frappuccino yesterday even though I was planning to stop drinking caffeine. Darling Husband brought it home for me, I could have just said “no thanks” but I have no self control. 

I might POAS on Sep 29, 10 dpo. I was reading the discussion in the September POAS thread, that it’s actually a good idea to keep track of CP, for future reference to get potential fertility treatment. My original plan was to POAS 12 dpo.

sunnyorchid :  I would agree you’re 2dpo too. Maybe your crosshairs will change with your temp tomorrow? If you did O on CD 16, our BD timing was similar this cycle! FX for your BFP ❤️

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 28/30

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: 1!

Ovulation Date: Premom is predicting Oct 8, but I’m wondering if I O a bit later… possibly as late as Oct 12  

POAS Date: Oct 22

Usual Cycle Length: 30-31 days

Cycles Trying: 2

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Charting BBT, I’m going to try to be more diligent with OPKs to get a better idea of when I’m Oing. Been taking prenatal for a few months now. BD EOD, and going to try to continue past when I think I O just in case we miss it and I O late. 

Trying anything new this month? I think just being more diligent with OPKs… I kind of gave up last month (first month using them), but looking back on my chart, I think I missed it cuz it was later than expected.

What is the strangest TTC advice you’ve heard or tried? I had never heard of mucinex before being on these boards… not sure that I’m ready to give it a go, but interesting to read about.

sunnyorchid :  thank you. yes, I was pregnant for almost a month…. that’s a lot of time to imagine this particular baby joining our little family 😥 I’m sorry about your CP and hope that October is your month!

KittyYogi :  Oh noooo Kitty 🙁 Shit that sucks so hard and I’m SO sorry. I hope your D&C goes smoothly. I had a MC around 8 weeks. Baby stopped growing at around 6 weeks but by the time they figured out what had happened my body started passing it on it’s own. Those 2 weeks of limbo were hell and my bleeding was AWFUL, so a D&C would have saved me a lot of physical discomfort. 

sunnyorchid :  I also agree that you’re 2dpo! 

catlover123 :  Hahah yeah I never heard of mucinex before these boards either. It’s strange to use phlegm medicine to get better CM, but also kinda makes sense if you think about it!

Has anyone ever had a chart like this before? It doesn’t look as pretty as the rest of yours, but I got cross hairs for last Thursday. Not sure how accurate it is though as my temp this am was taken super late and we drank last night, and my temp yesterday was also taken late. Hoping I can get a more accurate chart with tempdrop.

For fun: wierdest advice: use an OPK when you get a smiley face/positive have sex three times in a row. It’s not wrong but also does seem kind of hilarious

SeaOfLove :  thanks dear! Fingers crossed you’re getting your BFP.

KittyYogi :  thank you!

Hopefully you are getting your sticky beans very soon.

My temperature increased some more. I wonder how it will continue from now on. 

I’m eating like a pig, last month I was still kind of intermittent fasting and then I had the CP. Now I am constantly eating. Ugh! I gained so much weight already which is annoying because I was just 3 lbs away from my absolute goal weight. I was 20 lbs below pregnancy weight and about to Marie Kondo my closet. I was able to fit in all my old clothes again but that’s over already. No! If I am not pregnant this month I need to get better about what I am snacking on. Rant over.

I feel very much not pregnant. Last month I was so confident but a CP is a very humbling experience. I’m 4 dpo today.

Took a few days off from the boards but I’m popping back in to say hi! It’s CD12, negative OPK, small temp jump this AM but I think it’s because I had wine last night. I’m so worried I’m gonna miss O because of my MC (have no idea if my cycle is going to go back to normal). I think we’re going to start BDing EOD but I don’t want to wear us out too much. 

Doing much better after my MC now though. It’s been almost 2 weeks since it happened, and while I’m still sad when I think about it I find that it’s easier to distance myself for now. I still think that my therapy session on Wednesday is going to be so helpful though!
