Intro and a couple tww questions

Hi everyone-- I just did a brief intro on the newbie thread, but I had some questions. I haven't tried to get pregnant in 4 yrs so I do not remember anything. 

About me for those who might not read the newbie thread: I am 35 and my husband is 34. I work in special ed (admin) and my husband is in consulting. We are ttc #2 (our kiddo is now 3). I am a bit nervous this time around for some reason. I can't place it, but I just don't feel confident. Maybe because I'm older?

Last month my cycle was 32 days and I had a positive opk on cd20. We did not ttc. This cycle, I had a positive opk on cd18 using wondfo and clear blue. Wondfo looked positive on cd17, but the clear blue was negative. We had sex on cd18 & 19. Today is cd23. Based on that, how many dpo am I? 

Also, what are some things to avoid in the tww? Can I drink coffee? I'm personally choosing not to drink alcohol. Is there a correlation between cm and getting a bfp? Usually I have it (well, on birth control) and now I am bone dry. Thank you ladies!

    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

    How I feel all of the time.
