- Wedding: September 2016
DH and I were kind of NTNP for a bit, and even though we hit my FW 4 times, nothing happened. It took us 9 cycles to get our baby girl the first time, so I’m gearing up for another long journey. September will be our first cycle seriously TTC again. I’m so hoping to get pregnant this fall… I am so excited to go through it again…
Your age/partner’s age: 29 and 33
Baby #: 2 (plus one stepson)
Current Cycle Day/DPO: Currently on CD 25 of my second to last cycle before TTC. Expecting AF tomorrow or Friday.
Ovulation Date: For my TTC cycle, about 9/8
POAS Date: 9/22
Usual Cycle Length: About 26 days
Cycles Trying: We had 4 cycles NTNP where we hit my FW at least once. This past cycle, we didn’t hit my FW, and I don’t think we’ll hit it again this next cycle. This Roll Call (September) is our first cycle really TTC.
BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Temping, charting fertile CM, OPKs, BD timing, prenatals, and DH has been taking a bit of Fertilaid.
Trying anything new this month? This will be our first month seriously TTC, so better BD timing and more BDing in my FW.
For Fun: Which of your personality traits are you most happy for? And least happy for? Why? How organized I am (also very Type A) and how patient I’ve become through my journey of motherhood… Being a stepmom was my first lesson in patience, and having an infant was my second. My least favorite? It might be how overwhelmed I can get through compassion fatigue. It’s exhausting feeding off of other peoples’ emotions.
I’ve been trying to post, but when I went to edit my typo, it deleted my post… now it says I made a duplicate post, or it acts like it posted, but it didn’t. I’ll try again this afternoon.
Duplicated… These posting glitches are annoying. Yeesh. Sorry.
Sorry about all of the bold, I’ve tried a few times, even in the August thread, to remove them and I can’t
I found out that the birth control completely killed my sex drive, I blamed my anxiety medications (ssris) and we made all kinds of adjustments, but after I stopped the hormonal birth control, I was completely back to normal.
I loved it until I realized that it was causing my lack of libido. I didn’t mind the iud that I had, but not having a period made my anxiety unmanageable because I always thought I was pregnant (🙄🙄) and the nuva ring was perfect, I didn’t have to remember it every day and I still got a period
My daughter is 16 months old. I’m hoping to have the next before she turns 3. A 2.5 year difference would be ideal, but it took us so long last time and my DH is still on anxiety medication (low libido and sexual side effects), so I can’t imagine our TTC journey being any easier this time around.
Think I’m out for August guys, so I’m going to join you!
Your age/partner’s age: 26/28 (although my birthday is in August, so I guess by the time I POAS it will be 27/28)
Baby #: 1
Current Cycle Day/DPO: 11DPO right now, CD31
Ovulation Date: August 24
POAS Date: September 2 in 10 DPO, but I’ll probably start testing on Sept 1 at 9DPO because I’m impatient
Usual Cycle Length: 33 days
Cycles Trying: 2
BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): BD timing, charting, prenatals, OPKs, Mucinex, Pre-Seed
Trying anything new this month? Mucinex and Pre-Seed. Also getting back into temping (I temped to TTA, but last month was our first cycle TTC and I didn’t temp. Back to it now)
Link to your chart if charting: Will link once I’m all set in in FF again
For Fun: Which of your personality traits are you most happy for? And least happy for? Why? I’m happy that I’m compassionate and empathetic. I’m least happy about the fact that I cannot keep a secret (not even my own) Lol
Yup, AF arrived today so officially on to cycle 2. September 1 should be about 9DPO so I’ll be frequenting this board and the August board. Just ordered my Mucinex and pre-seed, so I’m feeling good about this month!
