AS116: I really hope this works for both of us! I figured it'd cover all bases. ..If AF shows her ugly face at the end of this though, i don't really have much of a different plan.. /: besides maybe stay laying down longer after sex (i've heard it helps the sperm get to where they need to be). I don't want to bother with any ovulation kits unless after a year i'm still having trouble or something.
Do you have different plans for next month if AF shows?
Penelope04 & bb826: Thank you! And good luck to you too! Fingers tightly crossed!
This is our first month actively trying and I'm unrealistically optimistic for a one and done try. I started temping 5 days before I got my last period and bought the clear blue ovulation test for my fertile window (starting at the end of this week). I've always had a hunch of when I ovulate (cramps, fertile mucus, cervix position) but I'm trying to become more intune with my body. I figure, why wait to do all this after potential months of unsuccessful attempts?
Hm.. i never really thought about it that way. You make a good point though. I guess i am old fashioned when it comes to this kinda thing.. lol Figure that at some point its bound to happen.
..Makes me crazy though to see these young girls on tv and stuff having sex once and getting pregnant instantly. Cause you're like, oh it'll be easy. But i read forums on here and think, oh, maybe this will be a longer road than i thought..?
Idk, it may not sound like it, but i really am thinking as positively as possible!
I've even thought of cute ideas of how i will tell hubby when i get my bfp (:
I was in the same mind set. I DID NOT want to chart, use tests, etc but I have this irrational phobia that I am infertile. Haha. I mostly started temping just to see if I ovulate as I had a history of ovarian cysts years ago. All of this can be exhausting and overwhelming so who knows how long I'll keep up with it!
