kayjee :  Ahh Hello fellow March TTC 🙂 According to my App my fertile window in march will be around 03/15/19! Also, I’d def recommend using OPKs – my cycle is around 34 days and I will ovulate on CD21/CD22 instad of the “normal” CD 17 or whatever

hopfenn :  yay that’s wonderful news! Often they’ll tell you to wait a cycle more to ease dating and so you can see how far off from regular your first cycle may be.

Id say go with what you think is right for you and your SO. I was ready to try again immediately but SO felt strongly about waiting the first cycle. Ours was a bit different too because after a D&C with the scraping they do more time can be beneficial to rebuild the lining – hence his strong feeling.

jrocjn102718 :  Thank you!!

TravelingBride31 :  Ooo thanks for sharing your experience! I’m not concerned with dating since I’m using OPKs and temping to track ovulation, so hopefully I’ll be able to pinpoint it and use that for dating purposes (if we get lucky and get pregnant right away). We had a chat about and decided we felt that there was no reason to wait, and we’re both excited to try again, so we’re going to go for it! If my cycle ends up being wonky or something, then it just wasn’t meant to be right now, but we may as well try 🙂 I used a HPT today and it came back negative, so I think it may be safe to assume my hcg is low enough/gone now!

beadingandpearls1 :  I think my test strips are going to arrive just in time so I can test this cycle and have two test cycles under my belt before we start trying. My husband is excited about having kids, but I think he’s starting to truly understand just how badly I want this with all of the prep I’m putting into it haha.

jrocjn102718 :  Not really, my boobs are giant and sore but that happened last month too. I got really sick around my period last month so by comparison I feel great. I have had headaches on and off but I don’t think that’s a symptom.

Honestly, I was in the bathroom where I keep my tests and thought, “what the heck?” I was really, really expecting a negative.

jrocjn102718 :  No spotting yet? Maybe try again in the morning.

 

I used FRER and had a fairly strong line. Tested again on ClearBlue digital and got “pregnant”. So….guess it’s for real!

hemiandhighheels :  Oh, I just used a cheapy from Walmart. I didn’t want to waste a test. I did throw it away, but then put in my contacts. I swear if i looked hard and had the test at a certain angle I saw something like a shadow of a line, but I could also just be getting line eye because I want this so bad haha. 

I do not have spotting yet, which I’m sure by now you ladies know is my norm by this point as I usually get it 2-3 days before my AF. Maybe that’s a good sign or maybe I’ll just be late again this month :p we will see. I plan on trying to wait to test again until I actually miss AF.
