Sammy1, sorry to hear you feel out. Fingers crossed the feeling is wrong! If not, a new cycle always means a new shot...

Sorsha, how interesting to hear about Shettles! I also have a son but will be happy with either a boy or a girl. To not BD the last couple of days before O must mean a smaller chance to get pregnant?! How many days before O will you stop BD?

You're still in until AF shows up, Sammy1! Sending hopeful thoughts your way.

Yeah, the theory is that "girl" sperm are slower but tougher than "boy" sperm, so they don't get to the egg as fast but can stick around longer. So if you BD right on O day, the boy sperm are more likely to get there first, whereas if you only BD up until a couple days beforehand, most of the swimmers left will be girl ones. It's far from guaranteed, but I figured we'd give it a shot! And yeah, it will reduce our overall chances of getting pregnant. I expect if the first two or three cycles don't work, we'll say to heck with it and BD all the way through.

At the moment we're planning our last BD to be two days before theoretical O. So, based on my past few cycles, O day is predicted for August 3, so we'll BD the last time August 1. Although I'll also be checking with the ovulation tests and if I don't get a positive on the 2nd we might do another one then, since my cycles do often vary by a day or two.

Edit: Forgot to answer Sammy's question! I'm still in the middle of AF (CD 4). Waiting impatiently for next week when we can start trying.

Sorry to hear that Sammy, on to the next cycle!

Do you plan to do anything different this cycle? As for me, I'm planning to BD much more frequent this cycle. I was sick last cycle and didn't have much energy so our timing wasn't perfect. This cycle I'm planning to BD everyday from like CD 10 or so until confirmed O. My cycles can vary a bit so I hope I don't ovulate too late this cycle 😊

Think I will have to do pretty much the same again but try for every other day around Ovulation. Hubby is more in the ntnp camp where as I am 100% tracking Haha! So just got to make sure we BD a lot around ovulation! X

Sorry to hear that, Sammy! *hugs* if you want them. Lots of BD sounds like a good strategy to me!

Aw Sammy boo . GL for August!!

I don't like our chances... misread my fertility signs and so we BD -3 and -2 before O. I O'd about 24 hrs after I thought I did (I think lol). And I was lazy so we didn't keep bding until my confirmed temp shift. We started smep too early so I was all bd'd out :/

Anyways I'm pretty confident we won't get pregnant but the good news is I did see lots of ewcm this month (on O day). So next cycle I will know exactly what to look for. I'm just 2 dpo now so I'm not out but our chances aren't great.

Excited to see some more tests soon ladies!!

Sorry to hear thst your timing wasn't perfect Reiko! I know the feeling of not having more energy to bd, it's a fine balace. But looking at your chart it seems like there is also a small chance you ovulated on the 21st which makes your timing perfect! What does FF say if you don't override it? Either way, good luck with your TWW. Keep us updated with symptom spotting and tests

It does say CD21 if I don't override. I took the override off. Just not sure at all, my Post O temps are on the lower side compared to last month!! So yeah not completely out but feeling a bit on the doubtful side!! Also, no symptoms over here!

The two times I've been pregnant I didn't start noticing real symptoms until at least 7 dpo. The hormones don't really kick in until implantation, from what I understand. Fingers crossed for you!
