Hey ladies, Deb, DJ, and anybody else that wants to join the wait. AF showed up for me on October 20th. Let's do it, this has got to be our month. I hope everybody is relaxed and ready to BD. :-)

hello ! i had first day of af on the 21st and this is going to be our first month ttc. can i join ? how long have you been trying ? not expecting to ovulate till CD 22 since that's what happened the last 2 months (right after i got off the pill and a 28 day cycle). so this will be a long wait for me but we'll bd lots just in case my cycle regulates and i ovulate earlier this month. my husband is happy about this idea. hee hee. how long is your cycle ?

Hey Angie, how's it going. I'm doing the 2 week wait hoping things work out for me right now. I'll be right there waiting for the BFP with you. Hi Kristina welcome. I hear that when you come off the pill you are very regular and often easier to get pregnant.

hi naysa ! welcome. i stopped taking bcp in august. only had 2 cycles since they are now 5 weeks long instead of 4. bummer having to wait 3 whole weeks to ovulate ! but we're bd'ing anyway right now just for fun. have you been monitoring fertility ? how long is your cycle now being off bcp ? good luck !

Welcome Kristina and Naysa!!! Glad to hear from you DJ. DJ- good to hear from you again, glad to see you’re doing well. Where are you in your cycle? Did you and hubby bd every other day or every day? Kristina - you and I are on the same cycle, however, your Ovulation date is late. Did you ask your doctor about that? Good Luck, Kristina what are you and hubby's plan, are you taking anything? Try to bd every day around your fertile days and stay in bed afterwards. Naysa – Yes this is hard work. Just to think 3 years ago I was told that I was extremely fertile after giving birth to my son, now, I having been TTC for 6 months and nothing yet. I have previous kids from my past marriage and their healthy and beautiful. I’m a newly wed and my husband doesn’t have any children. I want to have at least two more children with him. I feel like my time is limited, I’m 33; I need to get busy and stay busy. Hubby seem to think that he cant have children, as he was with a women for many years and never got her pregnant. I should be O on Nov 2 -5, somewhere between those days. Usually in the past Dh and I have been bding every day around my most fertile days. Something not clicking, so, I think we might go every other day. Just in case hubby does have a low sperm count. Who knows maybe we will all have July babies. :)

hi angie ! thx for writing :-) well, i've only had 2 cycles since coming off of bcp so i thought maybe that's why my cycle is longer. my cycles were never really regular before the pill, but i was under lots of stress, gaining weight, etc, so thought maybe that's why they were messed up back then. do you think i have reason to worry ? my luteal phase is fine (15 days). but could the longer time to ovulate be a bad sign ? i do have a doctors appointment next week for a normal pap and physical (already had a preconception visit a few months back). we were planning on bd'ing every day starting this weekend just in case my cycle regulates to normal and then again starting the following weekend if my cycle remains long. yikes, now i'm nervous ? should i try and be on something ? thx !

angie - forgot to mention that in my last cycle i charted everything. and exactly 5 days before ovulation, i had tons of ewcm (every day). i also had a very clear temp drop and rise the day before and after ovulation. plus, my cervis was very high, open, and soft the day before ovulation and i had a + opk test the day before as well. oh, plus some very obvious ovulation pains that day too. so since i had every cla__sic sign, i thought it was good that i was for sure ovulating. what do you think, should i worry still about the longer time to ovulate ? since we weren't ttc last month, hoping all the same signs reappear :-) thx !

 

Angie - October 28

I was a little concern about your O day, because most women O CD13-16. When you said you O on CD22 and your cycle on 28 days, I was thinking that wasn't enough time for implantation to occur. Implantation usually takes about 5 to 10 days to take place. I'm glad your Oing, that's a good sign.

 

kristina - October 28

haha, oh sorry :-) my cycle is actually 35 or 36 days right now. i have read about shorter luteal phases being of concern so i was glad that that was normal. but i think i'll still talk to my doc about it anyway, huh ? it's mostly just annoying to have to wait longer for ovulation :-( but at least it's happening like you said. thanks again ! my husband is 41 and i'm only 27 and i've been wondering about his sperm count as well. although 10 years ago, in a very not good situation he had gotten someone else prego so deep down i have that to think of. but since then his count could be low. oh well, guess it's just a waiting game. had your hubby had any tests or anything ? but good to know like you said that you are super fertile ! maybe the every other day will do the trick ! good luck!

That sounds more like it. I'm 33 and hubby is 27. My friend got pregnant by her hubby and he's 48, so your husband should be fine..Good Luck!!!

Hello ladies - The weird thing for me is that the first one was so easy and this is going on month 5 for us TTC. I'm 32 and my DH is 31. Now that we're trying again it's just so difficult. Question - when you get the ewcm is it realy stretchy (I read 5 cm) mine isn't so stetchy - barely stretchy at all. I'm just not quite sure what I'm looking out for and does this always happen before/during ovulation

I hate af!!! Got af today at work no less and af was 19 days late from last month. I am going to make an appt. for the doctor anyways because I am concerned! Baby dust!!!!

 

anne - October 29

I went off of yasmin the end of april, so ttc for like 4-5 mths.

 

Angie - October 31

Good Morning Ladies and welcome Anne. DJ - I never get the stretchy c_m, mine is always watery, and clear. My normally will come the day before ovulation or couple hours before O. I heard in the past that when you get the stretchiest like c_m that's usually your most fertile day, bd before and after the discharge. You’ll have it covered either way. Good Luck, what cycle day is this for you? I’m trying the evening primrose oil that my friend swears by; she did end up pregnant both times. I should be O by next Thursday, bding every other day until a couple days before O, then it will be everyday.
