I should "O" between cycle day 18-20...I'm trying Maca Powder this cycle so I'll start OPK's around cycle day 10th...since I not sure when or if Maca powder will make me "O" ...
Hopefully this is the Baby Magic Dust.....
We're trying to not stress about it this month (easier said than done) so we're going to BD every day or every other day at least until FF says I O - this is pretty normal for us lol. Last month was my first O in 6 months at least and after a very faint + my temp shot down and I started bleeding. Really hoping to O again this month! Last month I didn't O until CD 23/24 so I still have a while to wait....
Not sure which I hate more the WTO or 2WW... probably the WTO because I'm always waiting for that...
I agree with you Crystal. For me the WTO is the worst because from one month to the next I never know when I am going to ovulate so I could be waiting 14, 17, or 20 days. At least with the 2ww what's done is done and I just have to ride it out until AF. Been really crampy this afternoon so AF is probably going to hit tonight I am thinking and then I will be in the Waiting to O category. Got some bloodwork done today so hopefully that will help my RE figure out what I need to do (up my dosage of Clomid?)
Michelle I'm hoping it's a lil eggy implanting in there and Not AF!
This is my last cycle of actively TTC, after this no more temping or charting and if I find I'm going to crazy I may end up back on BCP since I'm in for such a long wait and then I'll be mid 30s and it will be even harder to conceive.
Hoping for a miracle this month, last cycle was tough since I got my first BFP (even if it was a squinter) and 2 days later I started bleeding heavily.
Crystal, don't give up hope hun! You conceived a beautiful child once before, you can definitely do it again! I understand the not wanting to try so actively (it gets tiring, I know) but instead of BCP are you and DH okay with JLIH? With BCP you have a slim to none chance of getting pregnant. At least with JLIH there is always a chance, right?
Also, I am very sorry about your BFP last month that ended with heavy bleeding. This TTC business takes such an emotional toll on our minds and bodies but I have my fingers crossed that you won't have to worry about it too much longer and that you get that BFP you deserve sooner rather than later.
AFM- I had a squinter of a BFP last night (I think) but I am more or less thinking it was an evap. Thought for sure judging by all of the cramping last night that I would have hit AF by now. Maybe tomorrow?
Huh. I posted here yesterday but it never showed up. Strange.
Anyways, Crystal, I agree.....This has got to be so hard, but don't give up yet.
Michelle - Test again! I can't wait to hear! I've got my fingers crossed for you
AFM, I'm jumping onto the "Waiting to O" train. I'm expecting AF on May 1st, and then I should O around the 15th-17th. However......DH and I did the Baby Dance a couple times over the past week, but I think it was too late after I O'd.
I'm SO not patient enough for this though! I'm not good at waiting, I want my body to be able to O on command, and then know right away if it worked! This will be TTC #1 for us so I have no past experience to draw from, so we're kinda just winging it.
Good luck everyone!!
I know all to well about ttc and can be a witness about the ttc journey.....it can be very taxing on your emotion because your up one cycle and then your down the next...its constantly moving all over the place....dh and i having one son who is eight and we have been ttc our 2 second child for the past 7 years. We been through infertility treatments, except ivf, (only clomid and injections) .....I want to try to at least have one child as natural as possible so we are giving it our all with herbs and Dd'ing.....
Don't give up!!!
JO...i hope it wasn't to late for your to catch the eggie (smile) and i pray that your ttc journey is short and sweet...good luck and lots and lots of baby dust to you.......
