TTC after 35

Well I screwed this month up!!!

I have been battling a cold/allergies for about a week. It got so bad Saturday night I took a decongestant. Well Sunday I get a positive opk's so we BD and I'm dry as the Sahara desert. Strike one. Husband grabs the KY. Strike two. Now I'm reading an article about what not to do when TTC and see both of those things and my heart drops.
This is the first month in a long time I actually timed sex perfect with the opk's. my husband will normally only do it on Friday or Saturday because he gets up at 4:30. But I got him on Sunday and last night.
So here I am all proud of my self for timing perfectly then I read the dang article.
I am deflated. I was so excited about this 2ww and now I just have to get through another month and hope that I can time it right next month
Sorry for the rant I just needed the vent.

Re: Well I screwed this month up!!!

  • Having the allergies right before your O date may be random unfortunate timing, but one solution to the KY portion of the problem is using Preseed instead.   It is a TTC safe lube.

    I hope you get a nice surprise this month!

  • I second what Qotr said, cause for me being older I am just not as "moist" as I once was, so sometimes I need just a little preseed to help, even if I am having ewcm!

    Don't count yourself out till AF shows, people have gotten KU through all kinds of things! I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

  • Thanks everyone.
    I have read threads about preseed. And since I try to BD during my fertile week I usually am not dry, so with only 2 more cycles of ttc left I don't see the point in getting it now. It just stinks that I did all the things I shouldn't have.
    The only thing we didn't do wrong is have him soak in a hot tub right before. LOL!
    I will try and stay optimistic.

    Also Preseed is awesome... I usually never need it but it is great to have on hand.  A little goes a long way.

  • I did the exact same thing last month. We are new TTC and month 2 I had bad allergies so I socked it with sudafed. Literally thought it through as I was swallowing the stuff. Sigh. Allergies are still kicking my butt this month but I'm suffering through. Doing the BD this weekend even while my nasal passages feel like they are exploding!

  • NEVER EVER COUNT YOURSELF OUT!! I swear up, down, left and right I never had a temp change or positive opk the month i had my bfp - even though we lost that one, I will never doubt the possibilities again. Sometimes we are off or feel off, but there are things still happening behind the scenes :)
