Hi AT, I should O this thursday/friday. We started last weekend and will continue every other night until my AF (doesn't) show up! I have a regular cycle. Have fun trying!

hello ! can i join in ? i'm either due for AF november 17th or the 25th. been off the pill for a full 2 months now. this will be my 3rd. the first 2 months i ovulated on CD 22 so if i stay with a long cycle, i won't expect af till the 25th. but i could regulate back to a normal cycle which would make af due on the 17th. and since i want to chat, thought i'd join in here :-) so we'll be bd'ing lots and lots this month to cover the potential normal cycle fertile days and the long cycle fertile days. my husband is very happy about this plan :-) so this will actually be our first month ttc. were waiting for disability insurance to kick in to cover some maternity leave. finally, we can try ! i read that bd'ing every day is good unless your hubby is suspected to have low sperm counts. since we don't know (he is 41 but very fit and super healthy and i'm only 27). should we bd every day ? what do you ladies think ?

Welcome Kristina, I would say bding everyday won't hurt. You wouldn't know if he has a low sperm count until a few months of trying maybe. Have fun!!

thanks laura ! so this is your week of bd'ing ? i can't wait for ours ! 3 weeks for ovulation takes forever ! but at least i have all the signs of ovulation which i was worried i wouldn't due to coming off the pill. do you think a longer time to ovulate indicates a problem ? how long have you been ttc ? first baby ? enjoy your week of fun !

Kristina, I have three children. I just had a m/c 9/3/05. I used to have a 45 day cycle. Now it is 28 days. Have fun trying.

i'm so sorry about your m/c. being on this site you start to realize more common they actually are. scary, but nice to know there's someone going through the exact same thing. good to know you used to have long cycles and still conceived :-) thx. good luck this time around !

Becca, my daughter is almost 6 and she's ready for a sibling. Laura I am do to O probably around halloween or maybe a day or two after. Even though AF is due Nov. 15, I tend to have a 13 day LP But we have started beding as well, just incase.....I think god was making sure I didn't get pregnant last month for a reason because we have been moving and I have been carrying so many heavy things, and almost have killed myself a few times moving stuff, ha ha. Like today I about tripped off the end of the truck carrying a box... whooops!

This site has been very supportive. Good luck to all of us. We will all have positives very soon!

Hello- I'm waiting with you guys if you don't mind. How is everyone?

 

Anna - October 27

Hi! Can I wait with you too? I'm due for (no) AF around Nov 12th. I hope it doesn't come!

 

kristina - October 27

hello anne and anna ! the more the merrier. i have absolutely nothing to report. the first 2 weeks are super boring. just waiting. but having fun bd'ing lots :-) what month is this ttc for you both ? have you O'd yet ?

 

Anna - October 27

Hi Kristina! I don't think that I have O'd yet. I think I should this weekend but I'm new at this so I'm not completely sure. The 1st day of my last AF was Oct 16th. This is our 2nd month of "really" ttc. What about you?

 

kristina - October 27

anna - of fun, this is our first month ttc too. my first day of last cycle was the 21st of oct. i'm not sure if i'll ovulate late as i have been since off the pill 2 months ago, or if my body will regulate and i'll ovulate normal time. so i'm monitoring signs, temps, etc. and will start taking opk test this weekend to see when i officially ovulate. so we'll see ! how long is your cycle normally ? are you monitoring fertility signs at all ?

 

Anna - October 27

Kristina - I'm not monitoring temps yet but I might start next month if I get AF this month. I didn't have an AF for several years due to college athletics so my doctor had me cut way back on exercising and try to increase by body fat %. After gaining about 10 pounds I finally got AF three months ago! We've been trying ever since. I really hope this is the month. My husband has been out of town the last 2 days so I'm anxious for him to get back tonight! I just hope it's not too late since I really don't know when I ovulate. How is monitoring BBT? I've never tried before. What kind of thermometer did you get? Have you had any "symptoms" yet? Thanks for your help!

 

Anna - October 27

What is the best type of thermometer to use? I know you're suppose to use a more sensitive thermometer. Thanks for any advice!

 

kristina - October 27

anna - that's great news for you. i bet u were never so happy to see af, huh ? have your cycles been regular since af showed up ? well, congrats ! i have been doing the bbt and it's really kind of fun. my husband laughs at me every morning when i'm half alseep with a thermomter in my mouth ! i just bought a cheap "vicks" thermometer. nothing fancy or specific. and it works. i had a perfect temp dip and rise right before ovulation ! it's actually sort of fun. my cm is super obvious around ovulation. can;t miss the ewcm so that's a nice sign. have you noticed that in past cycles ? i saw ewcm exactly 5 days before ovulation so if i was ttc that month, i would have known exactly when to start trying. hope the same happens this month ! no signs just yet. af just ended on monday. keep me posted for sure ! and i will do the same :-)
