    Current Cycle Day/DPO:  CD 8

    Ovulation Date: Estimated FW: October 2-7

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: October 16th-ish. I tracked & temped for years with an IUD. This is my third cycle after having my IUD removed, so things are a bit of a moving target! Cycles 29-33 days.

    Cycles Trying: FIRST! OMG!

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements,  etc.): I think we are going to focus BD close to O day to start. I’ve been taking prenatals for 3 months, also supplementing with maca root and evening primrose oil and mucinex for EWCM. I’m on daily antihistamines/decongestants so we are going to try preseed as well.

    What are your favorite things about Fall? Any fun plans for  Halloween?

    My favorite part about fall is our anniversary! We will hit the three year mark on October 30. 🙂

    I want it to be October already!!!!! I have a good few weeks to wait as we’re going overseas for 2 weeks in 9 days time….and I haven’t even had a positive opk yet! although the line is steadily getting darker so hopefully in the next couple of days I’ll get a positive.  the only thing I’m concerned about is my wedding dress! Lol

    Hello October ladies. Still no word on my “condition” so frustrating. Just curious if any of you lovely ladies have missed a session with AF or had a very late arrival of AF for reasons other than pregnancy. Just trying to figure out what is going on with my body.

    Hoping for a successful October for everyone!

    @Mrs. Amethyst:  Welcome back! GL this cycle!

    And welcome and GL this month to everyone else! I lost track.

    I have only 17 days left of my FF VIP membership 🙁 I bought a 3 month pass thinking I wouldn’t need to renew it. Hopefully I won’t…

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: 3 DPO, CD 17

    Ovulation Date: CD 14, 9/22

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: 10/6, typically my cycles are 27 days, so this will be AF day. Will be on vacation with the inlaws so finding a way to do it may be tricky, but there is no way I can wait even a day longer (this will already be 14 dpo, but I don’t want to test before, because I don’t want to ruin the weekend…)

    Cycles Trying: 4th

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Took prenatals and EPO, drank more water, tried to BD more (got in O, O-1, and O-3)

    Halloween and fall colors! We love Halloween, so there will be lots of pumpkin carving, decorating, costumes, eating chili.

    @the_newlymintedmrs-s17:  Gah sorry just read that they are 25 days! Ok. Hmmm. Well, a few possibilities:

    1) The temperatures are not correct/ something threw them off (eg drinking water before you tested, etc)

    2) You are having an anovulatory cycle

    3) You haven’t ovulated yet/ may have a short luteal phase.

     

    It definitely becomes easier to see a pattern after a few cycles of charting so don’t sweat it!

    @the_newlymintedmrs-s17:  ALSO- are you using OPKs? And also- lots of women have an anovulatory cycle too so don’t worry if this one doesnt look great- it’s over a few months you want to see… Frustrating though.

    @Treejewel19:  Sorry my dear, it sounds frustrating. How late is AF now? Late or absent periods can be caused by stress/ hormonal changes, anovulation, or PCOS. If you have had a stressful month, I wouldn’t worry too much about it- maybe a week of really healthy eating, exercise, and de-stressing activities such as walks and yoga will bring you back to a regular cycle! GOOD LUCK! I hope AF comes soon so you can start the next cycle and get your BFP!

    @the_newlymintedmrs-s17:  Glad your temp went up! My timing is obviously off too. Got AF today, I am so so sad. Looks like I have an 8 day luteal phase which is super short. 🙁
