Re: Newbie Intro Week of 2/6

  • @Piccola1988. Welcome!  You're in good company ;)  if you are actively trying, you might as well jump into the wto/tww dailies.  Are you temping too?  Or just using opks?  You can also DL the FF ap and just log cm/opks/symptoms until youre ready to start temping, but that really is the best way to confirm you really ovulated, not just getting a false surge...
    Me: 34 | DH: 41 ~ Married / TTC since May 2015
    5/16 - Began Creighton Method CM Tracking / Napro Fertility Medicine | Progesterone + various abx cycles - all BFNs
    8/16 - SHG: ute good, at least one tube open | 10/16 - MFI Azoo dx confirmed. No known genetic cause. Vas tubes absent.
    3/17 - DH started Clomid to prepare for MESA/TESE | 4/17 - Initial RE Consult for me. | 7/17 - Successful retrieval for DH!
    9/17 - Two BTB IVFs  | 10/17 - Polypectomy  |  11/17 - 1st FET ended in CP | 12/17 - 2nd FET ... BFP!!! <3 EDD: 09/09/18

    Our little miracle is on the way...

  • @Piccola1988 welcome! This is my first cycle trying too. I totally feel you on the unpredictability, I'm a planner and keep obsessively thinking about how a baby will affect the next six months based on due dates, so you're not alone!

  • Thanks @BusinessWife!  We're going to try for a bit without temping and see what happens, so I just track in an app and keep apprised of symptoms for now.  My cycle is really regular and my symptoms have been really obvious, so I'm hoping that will be enough.  I guess we'll see!

    @ag90 glad to hear I'm not the only one!

  • @happyhiccup we are twins! My DD is 9 months and we are BF'ing still too! I'm glad to see someone else on here trying to temp while BFing and no PP period yet too. I saw you over in TFAS. Are you using FF? 
  • @kitkat8713 Yes, I used FF first time around and am trying to use it again, it's a bit weird with no CD1 but for now I'm just putting in my data each day and using a day a few days ago as a pretend "CD1." It's hard to remember to temp each morning before getting up and out of bed, and the days that I do it after getting up and getting back into bed the temps are all over the place. But, I'm not expecting to see much of a pattern before I get PP AF, so I'm not too worried about it until then.

  • **TW***

    : 30 and DH is 31.

    Months TTC: 6 TTCAL and hopeful this is our month

    What I'm doing: Charting and using ovulation kit

    About me: DS is 2.5 years old. We live in Lexington, KY. We lost our second at 6 weeks this past July.  Since then I have been charting my cycle. I tried temping but was never consistent enough. Broke down and bought an ovulation kit to see how close my charts were and I am spot on with a 31 day cycle. Tomorrow is day 0. **fingers crossed** I have been in a fog since the loss this summer. I am looking for a place to talk about TTC since most of my friends are done having kids! 
  • @LuND thank you

  • @jcgibson Welcome! I am sorry for your loss. You are not alone in TTCAL. It's not a fun club, but there are others (like me) here with you. 
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*

  • Hi everyone. Not "new" here but haven't been on since about August. We decided to hold off on trying for a while. But now I'm back. We've decided to go for it now. 

    Hubby and I are both 32. We are literally just starting TTC. Because I have been on bc since 2011, we will just start with my getting off of it and see how it goes for a couple of months. We have three kiddos already who are 13, 10, and 6.
