    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 6

     Ovulation Date: Usually around CD16-17 so October 3/4

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: October 16/17, I’m trying to wait until AF is due so I don’t pee on ALL THE STICKS! Usually my cycle is 28 days like clockwork but last cycle was only 25… argh!

    Cycles Trying: I actually have no idea. We’ve been kinda sucky about it because I have travelled a lot for courses and most of those have fallen during my FW. Maybe our 4th or 5th of actually trying and hitting FW?

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): We are going to BD way more. I am thinking the SMEP and I am taking prenatals and a Bcomplex to increase my LP.

    What are your favorite things about Fall? Any fun plans for Halloween? I LOVE fall. Mostly for lots of football and Halloween. We are actually going to Disneyland with DH’s WHOLE family in October so lots to do before Halloween!

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: October 3 or 4 -11/12DPO

    Cycles Trying:  technically, this is 6. We sat out last month as I had a MC the first week of August and we had to wait a month. This is our first cycle post-MC

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.):  because of DH’s travel schedule and some other things, we only got in O-2 and O but I’m pretty happy about that. I’m taking prenatals and a B100 vitamin

    I’d love some advice/ personal experience from you ladies. Just wondering if I should buy some wondfo OPK/pregnancy tests online? I can get a pack of 50 opk and 20 pg tests for I think $25 plus whatever tax and shipping. Are those the kind you bees use? Is it worth it or do you find sometimes it adds to the pressure of TTC? I bought a few OPKs from the dollar store last month to try them out but didn’t use enough to see a positive. I’m just worried that the TTC process will start to consume me if I get into this habit now (cycle 2 trying). But at the same time I want my BFP sooner than later so any help I can get right? Wanna give me your two cents?

    @Pink Asawa:  I’ve never used OPKs before but just bought a big pack (digital) online to try. they are more expensive but I wanted to take the guessing out of it. This is my 3/4 cycle trying so I’m pretty early in the ttc journey but I’m going for it. the way I see it, I’m kind of consumed with the thought of it anyways so I might as well have something productive and helpful in terms of ttc to focus on. I’m hoping it helps!

    @Pink Asawa:  I’m pro using OPKs! If for some horrible reason you aren’t ovulating, you can fix the problem sooner than later.  But that may be because I’m 31 and DH is 37, so we are getting old and want 3 kids.  So I wanted to figure out if there was something wrong without waiting a year and then trying to figure out if my cycle is messed up.  I don’t obsess about it when it’s part of my routine everyday (like temping is now).  If I was 25 and DH was 28, we probably wouldnt be using them.

    The first few cycles, DH didn’t want to know I was ovulating because he didn’t want to feel sex to feel ‘forced’. But now he’s onboard with knowing.

    Current Cycle Day/DPO:  I don’t actually know, my period is all over the place due to it just returning after taking 5 months to return after ending depo.

    Ovulation Date: Who knows! Using OPK’s to help me here! 

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Not sure, I’m going to aim for 10 DPO before I test, but I need to know when I ovulate first!

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Taking pregnancy multi-vitamin, BD every day/every second day – Fiance isn’t aware that it’s as calculated as it actually is – we’re NTNP according to him lol
