you ladies are amazing! all of what you said is in my plan this month thank you so much!
the keeping my hips up tho will be a little difficult because if my OH see he will know im trying and he wants us to NTNP but is okay with us having another baby so i think i will squeeze and run to the bathroom and put my hips up lol
again Thank You all so much. very helpful and congrats on your pregnancy's
thank you so much is it a bad thing if i eat that during ovulation i am not using opks or anything i am listening to my body and i know it pretty well...
I would recommend opks. If you end up going to a doctor, that's one of the first things they'll ask about/want you to do, so that you can be sure of what's going on (i.e. you're not ovulating regularly, ovulating early, ovulating late, etc.).
We tried for 6 months with no luck, then I took a 6 month break to get healthy, and then we fell pregnant the very first month back trying. Here is what worked for me that month:
--evening primrose oil caplets pre-ovulation (the days from getting my period until I got a positive opk)
--preseed lubricant (sperm friendly lube, since regular lube can harm sperm)
--softcups, used right after sex right before, during, and after my ovulation time
--no ibuprofen use after my ovulation
We were NTNP for barely a month and tadaa! We really weren't expecting anything to happen and weren't even really focusing on getting pregnant.. We never had any indication that anything was "wrong" with us before or anything either though.
We both were on the south beach diet.. So cut back on the bad carbs and alcohol and just eat loads of veggies, fish, meat etc. Making all meals from scratch at home and using organic products probably helps too.. Who knows what all those hormones and additives get up to!
I think like most people here that really cutting back on the alcohol, eating healthy, not being too stressed (about work or conceiving or whatever), sleeping well/regularly and being at least a bit active every day really helps.
somethings i cant use like preseed and softcups because even tho i am trying my fiances is not. he does not want to actively try and that would definitely turn him off. he told me that if it happens it happens and he would be happy...also i have been to the doctor and i ovulate fine and all of that and for the past like 6months i have been able to tell when i ovulate i started off using opks to help me out...
thanks ladies i started my plan today. and still waiting for AF she is due tomorrow but welcome to come today
DH and I tried for 6 months before seeing a dr for some testing. I didn't want to wait any longer than that because he and his ex tried for four years without any luck. The dr did my testing first and everything came back fine. A while later, DH went in and we found out he has low fluid volume but TONS of swimmers so it was just a matter of increasing the lubricant to help them on their way. I used Mucinex to thin my cervical mucous, we'd been using PreSeed but I used ConceivePlus one time that cycle right before ovulation, and we made sure DH loaded up on LOTS of water instead of caffeinated sodas. We also abstained from any sexual activity for three days between BDing to let more fluid build up. We got pregnant the first month (cycle 9) after discovering his low fluid volume issue.
