@emb610:  thank you πŸ™‚ I wish none of us had to struggle with waiting πŸ™ 3 months felt like forever! I can’t believe I’m now about to start 8 (tomorrow I think still spotting just waiting for it to get heavier)… 

I guess the plus side… No BFNs staring at me this month because the spotting started soooo early!

Roll call

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 4

Ovulation Date: sept 11ish

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Sept 24th will be my test date CL is usually about 33 days

and for fun –

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC?

I’ll be working non stop! I’ll try to plan a weekend away with Darling Husband and our Dear Daughter but besides work and home renovations that’s it!

ETA: I’m back after last month. I would have bet a million bucks I was pregnant but my period started two weeks late….so hopefully I ovulate regularly. My period is never off so last month was horrible for me! I’ll be taking ovulation tests just to be sure when Im ovulating.

So i guess we are officially TTC! We were leaning towards more waiting to see what happens but then for fun yesterday I took an OPK and found out I was close to ovulating…took another one today and definitely got a positive! Darling Husband says he is good to go , but doesn’t want to stress out about it or chart right away. Which is fine with me πŸ™‚

Roll call

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 16/DPO (0). 

Ovulation Date: TODAY! (September 2nd) —> OPK told me so… that’s the only reason I know.

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: AF will be due September 15th as far as I can tell, but only came off birth control at the end of July so I’m still not sure my cycles are regulated 100%

 

Cycles Trying: This will be our first official cycle trying although we haven’t been preventing since I came off birth control at the end of July. 

 

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Taking prenatals, BD every day around ovulation time… or trying to! but otherwise that’s it for now; I feel like I want to start exercising more and hoping to get a couple of runs in this week.

 

Link to Chart, if any: none yet, and won’t start one for awhile… we probably will if I’ve been 5 or 6 months without a BFP.

 

and for fun –

 

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC? We are enjoying our new home that we moved into at the end of June πŸ™‚ We plan to enjoy the last couple weeks of summer by having our friends over a few times for bonfires before it gets too cold. Also with the fall, comes first episodes of a few of our fave TV shows. and like I said previously, I’d like to start getting more exercise. I’m a schoolteacher so we are starting up this week and as geeky as this sounds, I’m excited to get back into a routine and see my students!

My temp dropped majorly today, and BFN. No AF yet (due today, 13 DPO).  Super disappointed. Sending baby dust to all.

@guitargirl:  (((HUGS))) I feel your pain!!  Big temp drop today but still no show from AF who was due yesterday.  Another BFN this morning at 16 DPO.  All I can say is UGH!!!  This is so frustrating!

@PumpkinSpiceChai:  @guitargirl:  I’m in a similar boat.

AF due today, my temp fell this am but is still above my coverline. I’ve been spotting the last couple of days, but definitely not CD1 yet. I’m only 11DPO, but my usual LP is 10 days. Maybe it’s getting longer! I guess that would be a plus even if AF shows up.

fx for both of you and sending baby thoughts your way!

 Lots of family from out of town coming to visit throughout the month, hopefully that will keep my mind off of all of this!

I’m also out for this month – AF decided to visit after all.  Looks like I might take a few cycles to regulate (I hope!) I’ve been on the BCP for so long I don’t remember what my cycles were like prior!  Thinking of trying OPKs next month to better estimate ovulation……Good luck to everyone πŸ™‚

Sigh… I hate waiting.  After talking with my Darling Husband, I am just going to chart and temp and take OPK’s until I get a positive OPK and then I’m not doing any charting during my TWW.  Its adding to my stress and really it doesn’t matter b/c either I will get a BFP or a BFN after that point and I have no control over it.  I hate the no control part… I’m not drinking during the TWW- so it’s hard to “not think about it” since I am making that conscious decision, but hopefully not staring at my chart every day will help me relax.

Roll call: Hi Ladies!  Excited to be joining in on this board this month!!

Current Cycle Day/DPO: 2nd month TTC/ 12 DPO

Ovulation Date: According to Taking Charge of Your Fertility software, predicted ovulation was Aug 22nd

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: this is my first month charting and only second month off of BCP, last cycle was 28 days. 

 

Cycles Trying: 2/ To the ladies that chart, do you like fertility friend?  thinking of doing this instead of TCOYF (expired membership) thoughts? 

POAS this morning at 12 DPO and AF should be here in three days.  My temp dropped by .4 this morning, but not below coverline.  do i still stand a chance for a BFP or is it your experience that once it drops it continues to do so?

 

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): pre- natals and BD once a day in fertile window

What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from  TTC? Delayed honeymoon to outerbanks, NC in a week…can’t wait! πŸ™‚

 

Good luck everyone on your BFP’s and thanks for the support πŸ™‚

I was out of town for the weekend. It’s funny how many posts you have to catch up on after being absent for a few days! 

I just wanted to say WELCOME to the new joiners!
