    @luckylady3090:  If you just downloaded Fertility Friend, then what you’re seeing IS the VIP version.. They give you I think a month free trial.. If you look there is a comparison between the free version and the VIP one somewhere on the app. I got it because I did want to try temping, but I’m not sure if it’s going to work for me, because I wake up at various hours, I’m a very bad sleeper. :/ But I figured I would try it, it can’t hurt. But I don’t mind the question at all! πŸ™‚ The reason why I ovulate later is because my cycles are longer, they are about 34 days on average. So to fully cover the fertile window, we are going to BD EOD from CD 14-24 roughly. Just to cover all bases in case. πŸ™‚

    @Imabigkidnow:  I got ya! Funny thing, you would never ask about someone’s cycle, BD-ing or ovulation in real life. You would have every right to slap me! Haha. Its just so fascinating…its a whole new world!

    @luckylady3090:  Totally hear ya. We’re waiting on trying to get preg so I’d give birth no more than 2-3 weeks after my current contract ends. It would be so frustrating to be out a month or two (heavily pregnant) without a job and without the birth. It seems silly to plan so deliberately, so we’d obviously take whatever we get (dur) but still.. we’re shooting for a specific month. At least you’ve got a 3 month span! πŸ™‚

    @Imabigkidnow:  I have a regular cycle, but this is totally my plan too. I’m not risking it by BD’ing just one day. We’re all or nothing πŸ™‚

    So one of my friends recently moved away due to her husband’s jobs. They got engaged and then married right before my DH and I, so we got pretty close through all the planning and such. We even went off BCP at the same time, and started charting together!  Anyway, she was back in town and it was my first time getting to see her since she got her BFP. They weren’t trying, or planning to try until late this year, and it was so great getting o see her but totally fueled my baby fever. It’s so hard to be patient! Plus the fact that they did everything like two months ahead of my DH and I, I’m like hmm… maybe we are due for an oopsy baby? haha It’s so hard wanting something this much!! Just needed to vent that.. even though I’m beyond excited for her, and have very positive feelings about everything, it’s still hard. It was helpful though because I was also hanging out with my SIL, and she and her husband have been trying for 20 months πŸ™ So that kind of brought me back down to earth. But still. haha

    @luckylady3090:  Lol. I know… I had NO idea before the Bee that it would be SO hard to actually get pregnant. Especially when you try forever to NOT get pregnant just to find out that it’s not really that easy!

    @missfrillycoat:  Same here! I figured, especially for the first month trying, that we should BD as much as we can. I know that it can become a chore after a few months of trying, but the first month or so should be fun! πŸ˜‰ You are trying in April too, right?? Do you know when you will be POAS??

    @future_mrs_s:  Aww, waiting for something you want so badly is REALLY hard!! πŸ™ The only thing that helps is knowing that time goes by SO fast and that your time will be here before you know it! πŸ™‚

    @missfrillycoat:  I totally understand. Unfortunately, mine is only a two month span. I would have to give birth in either June or July for the $$$ plan to work. πŸ™

    @Imabigkidnow:  Okay, so my tracker is off because I initially used it when I was on bc and my periods were shorter. But to the best of my calculations, I’d be POAS the first day of June. Well, let’s be honest. Like- the entire week before. But the first day of June is when I’d otherwise expect AF. How about you? Will we be POAS buddies? That sounds wierd…

    @future_mrs_s:  @luckylady3090:  OMG this. Just found out that a family member of mine is having her 5th (count ’em- FIVE) “oops” baby. I am not shitting you. I can’t say that I haven’t been seriously a little bitter about it. She’s not even that excited, just suprised and a little apathetic. And here I am counting down the days until we can even try. Ugh, I need to stop thinking about it. 

    Edit: My bitterness is seriously showing. From the very little I’ve seen her discuss the topic, she appears a bit apathetic- but perhaps I’m reading her wrong.

    @missfrillycoat:  Depending on how early I decide to test, I can POAS anywhere from April 13-April 17. I’ll have a better idea when I start my next cycle! You’re POAS in June?? I thought you were TTC in April, right? πŸ™‚

    @Imabigkidnow:  Okay, I might have terminology wrong or I am backasswards on when to test. My ovulation week should be from the 12-18th (the specific day ay 17th). AF would otherwise come on June 1st. So that’s when I’d test-right?

    @missfrillycoat:  I am SO new to this, but the earliest you want to test (without wasting a HPT) is 9 days after you ovulate. Have you downloaded Fertility Friend? I did last night and it is just nice to see everything right in front of you.

    @missfrillycoat:  Lol. All this stuff is confusing to me too. My Fertile Window is estimated to be March 28-April 4. Therefore my next period is scheduled for April 17 (because I have 34 day cycles). So, technically April 17 would be the day that I pee on a stick (POAS). However, many people can get a positive pregnancy test before their misses period date.
