Good question. I learned– and this is weird and a bit TMI– I’m going to try to limit BD before my fertile window. Not cut it out completely, but we were exhausted by the time I O-ed! I’d love to say I won’t obsess over my temps but that would be a lie.

I learned that I tend to have mood swings the night before or night of O so I missed out on an important night of BDing because I wasn’t in the mood!  Next cycle if I am at all possibly still fertile, I will try to still BD and not let my mood swings get in the way!  I am also hoping I’ll do a much better job of not symptom spotting for future cycles but it’s so hard considering I tend to get different symptoms every time 😛

@MrsGrayIndy:  Same here on waiting to test.  I’m super impatient though, so I want to wait until 12 DPO at least.  That was my plan this time, but we all know how well that worked out 😉

Luckily I already solved my yeast infeciton problem by using Yes Baby instead of Pre-seed, so I’m definitely buying more of that.  I’m also going to try to limit symptom spotting (for real this time!).  Symptom spotting has been the biggest problem for me and it makes me feel like a crazy person when I realize it’s all in my head.  I think I may need to ban myself from Countdown to Pregnancy – I just can’t stop checking those boxes!

All of my non-pill PMS symptoms are just like pregnancy symptoms.  I will wait until the day of my period to test.  I will use OPKs to make sure my app has pinpointed the right days to BD.  We will limit our BD time before the window.

I am going to TRY to symptom spot — for ovulation!  Last cycle I didn’t O till CD40ish and looking back I think there were signs that it was coming (nausea and CM) so I am looking for those this time.  I don’t want to use OPK’s twice a day for weeks on end.

Totally with you ladies!!! Again, going to try not to test until I am late, to go every other day around O and not every day, and to try not to symptom spot in the TWW or allow my hopes to go up or down!!!
