and for fun – What is your favorite thing about Fall (or Spring)? I LOVE fall. My birthday is in October as is my husbands. We love pumpkins, the colors of the leaves on the trees as they get ready to fall, the hoodies and sweaters.. Ah, best season ever!
Good luck to all of you ladies!!! I can’t wait to see all the BFPs!

Glad I’m not the only one who has trouble following the SMEP every day! Sometimes I’m just too tired!
I understand the no self control! But at least our no self control doesn’t cost as much with wondfos 🙂
I will put you down! I would definitely be testing early if it was my anniversary!
Thanks!! And congrats to you!
Yay someone else joining me on the 25th!

No sure I should do this, but I guess it’s always good to have hope… I’m dealing with some infertility issues and have not been on the POAS roll calls for a few months. I’m on the 1 year+ these days. I had my first IUI cycle this month, so I thought I’d roll call just in case we get a miracle. The numbers were pretty bad, but I guess you never know…
Current Cycle Day/DPO: 9 dpi
Ovulation Date: 8/21, day of iui
POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: I’m going to try to wait until 9/4.
Cycles Trying: 12+ (stopped counting…)
BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): IUI for now. I’m taking prenatals.

Just tested at 10dpo, and BFN. However, no sign of AF (and since coming off BC I have found that I would spot in the days leading up to it-this is the first month I haven’t)…also for the past four days my breasts essentially feel like I’m wearing a bra made of glass shards, and last night as I was getting ready for bed DH was like “WTF is up with your boobs?! They look HUGE” (so it’s not in my head, lol.
Trying not to get my hopes up bc since I still feel my body is “normalizing” off BC, this could just be that..I have a FRER, but am going to wait until Monday….talk about a long long weekend :p
Also-wondering if anyone has been in this situation, or can speak to it…i’ve had super short cycles since coming off BCP, with most being 25-28 days…however, this month I didn’t get a positive OPK until CD19, so in theory I am late because it’s CD29 for me, but since i’m only 10dpo, I must just have a longer cycle this month, right?

I should add, I came off BCP in April, but it was a higher hormone dose, so my Dr warned me it might take longer to “flush out of my system”.

I also came off of BC in April. I started with 22-23 day cycles. Then I had a long cycle because I ovulated late (CD 18) and also ended up with a BFP but very early MC. This most recent cycle was also long (30 days) but it was the first cycle post-MC so who knows what either one of those would have been if I hadn’t gotten pregnant. Also, before I ever went on BC, I never had sore breasts or nipples around AF time. But since coming off, they hurt SOOOO bad right before. I will say that it was different the cycle I actually got pregnant. I started with the soreness around 3 DPO and they hurt until the MC, whereas all the other cycles they only hurt 2-3 days before AF. If you haven’t had the soreness with your other cycles, then that sounds like it might be a good sign!! Obviously everyone is different, but that’s just some insight into my cycles since we stopped BC around the same time 🙂

Awesome, thanks!! My cycles have been pretty short-i even had one that was only 18 days! Last month was the longest at 28 days, so maybe they’re just getting longer every month.
The breasts thing is something i’ve had before, but never this constant, or for this many days. They also feel heavier, or more “full”…i made dh feel them (i know, poor guy), and he agreed they felt different…so i guess we’ll see! Ellie85:
Eta:i’m so sorry about the mc. I can’t imagine. How are you feeling? Know i’m totally sending out vibes for a rainbow baby 🙂

Hopefully IUI will be just what you need to get your BFP! Good luck!!
HeyJude72: I had you as the 24th from your roll call and then TBD from a later comment (I think prob because I left you off that one…oops!) I went ahead and erased the TBD one and left the 24th one, but let me know if this is wrong!
sara_tiara: Well, the “fullness” is definitely a common first pregnancy symptom! As for the MC, I am fine now. It was rough at the time since my hormones were crazy. But I really only knew I was pregnant for 3 days so it was so early that had I not tested, I would have never even known. Still appreciate the vibes for a rainbow baby! 🙂
Here is the updated list. Let me know if something was left off or needs changed/updated! 🙂
