ROLL CALL

Your age/ partner’s age: 31/34

Baby #: 2 (DS will be 3 in October)

Current Cycle Day/ DPO: Just waiting for AF from August but temps are dropping so I suspect she will be here by tomorrow or Wednesday. 

Ovulation Date: I have irregular cycles so who knows. I’m hoping around Sept. 4th but I doubt it. 

POAS Date: I went 73 days last cycle, this cycle has been 83+ days in length. So who knows. Based on my hope of sept. 4th to ovulate, then Sept. 18th to POAS but it’s anyone’s guess. 

Usual Cycle Length: ?????

Cycles Trying: Going on nearly 8 now. 

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): BD timing, prénatals, temping/charting. Going to try Primrose Oil. 

Trying anything new this month: Primrose Oil ans losing weight. Down 4.5lbs in 2 weeks so far. Not much but I’m determined. 

Link to your chart if charting:

For fun: What’s your favorite kind of cake?  Cheesecake! I like carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I’m also partial to lemon with raspberry and cream cheese frosting.

Rolling over from August!

ROLL CALL

Your age/ partner’s age: 40/36

Baby #: trying for 2nd pregnancy but 1st baby.  We lost one at 21 weeks in January this year.

Current Cycle Day/ DPO: CD1

Ovulation date: 31 August

POAS Date: 15 September

Usual Cycle Length: 28

Cycles Trying: #2

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): BD timing, I’ve been on my prenatals still after losing the baby.  I’m thinking about getting some OPKs though!

Trying anything new this month: Not preventing! Maybe OPK and possibly temping?

Link to your chart if charting: Not charting at the moment.

For fun: What’s your favourite kind of cake?  I’m a baker (it’s therapy for me!) so any cake is good cake. I’ve got a Martha Stewart choc raspberry cake recipe which is amazing, or Katherine Sabbath’s caramel sponge is incredible as well.

For fun: I have a million birthdays coming up, and I’m the official cake baker of my friend group – What’s your favorite kind of cake? When I was growing up, my neighbor owned a bakery and she made me a lemon cake with raspberry filling for all my birthdays. And then we had her do our wedding cake the same! It’s the absolute best 😍

Thanks for starting the September group! I’m rolling over from August.

ROLL CALL

Your age/ partner’s age: 31/36

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/ DPO: CD 4

I had a Paragard copper IUD, and before this my periods were always 7-8 days with multiple very heavy days. Since I’ve had it out, my two periods have been barely 4 days and super light (also shorter/lighter than pre-IUD). It’s been amazing! 

Ovulation Date: Unsure – based on previous months anywhere from 8/27-8/31

POAS Date: Earliest would be 9/8, but I will update if that changes! Thankfully I will be out of town for labor day weekend and won’t be able to test before then anyway

Usual Cycle Length: 28 days

Cycles Trying: this is cycle 2

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): OPKs, temping, prenatals, coq10

Trying anything new this month: grapefruit juice! Also I have an RE appointment this week (my gyn put me in contact with one before we even started TTC due to some of my lab results), so I’ll see if she has any recommendations

For fun: I have a million birthdays coming up, and I’m the official cake baker of my friend group – What’s your favorite kind of cake? We get amazing cakes for birthdays at work, and I’ve really been missing those the last few months. My favorite is probably the oreo cake… rich chocolate cake with crushed oreos inside, with white filling/icing! I’m also a huge fan of funfetti.

Trying anything new this month: Nothing new this month but I’m doing a bunch of fertility testing at the start of my next cycle if this doesn’t work out and will consider starting Letrozole during that cycle as well. I’m nervous about this though and if anyone has experience with Letrozole or Clomid I’d love to hear it.
