motherslove - I always test out my OPKs. I like to know how long they stay positive and where the negative lines up with the temp spike.

Pineapple juice and sunflower seeds are said to promote implantation? I didn't know that. Too bad I despise both of those things. lol I hate pineapples and sunflower seeds taste like peanuts to me and I HATE peanuts. heehee

Hello everyone! I would like to join too! My husband and I are ttc'ing #4. I have 3 girls, ages 6, 4 and almost 2. I have had 2 CP's in the last 4 months, the most recent one on July 15th. I am using progesterone cream for a lpd, but I don't think my most recent mc was due to low progesterone as the cream successfully lengthened my lp from 5-9 days up to 12-13 days. At any rate, we're trying again one more time before consulting a fertility specialist. I oredered some vitex that I am going to take in conjunction with the cream after O. I am on cd10 today and I think O will be early (like tomorrow or cd12) because my opk was pretty high today.

I live in Ohio and am trying to start selling my art and jewelry ☺

Hi

I was hoping to jump in

We've just signed up to the forum and TTC#1! We're trying at home with donor sperm so our chances are somewhat limited, but we're hoping to begin some time this week.

We haven't had a chance to see how accurate our tracking has been as we've just started using OPK's but it's looking good for this week!

I forgot to mention, UK based over here

Anyway, nice to meet you all and good luck!!!

Hi to the new ladies! Happy to have you

Motherslove I was just reading about seed cycling! Very interesting. I'm going to try it this month too... start with flaxseed and pepitas now and switch over mid cycle. I'm at the point already where I'll try anything! Haha

Thank you, Dream and Mel!

@Beanie- I use wondfo opks and those have been super accurate for me predicting O. I hope that you get your bfp soon!

@Maybaby- Hey! I have a May baby in 2013 too! She was born on May 1st ☺ I definitely wouldn't count yourself out yet, even though you had early positives with your first. That really can vary alot from pregnancy to pregnancy.

I got my positive opk today! I was kind of expecting it later in my cycle. I usually O closer to cd16 and I had the cp less than 2 weeks ago. But all my hpts turned negative and I have watched the lh increase until it turned positive today. So I guess a early O on cd 12 (tomorrow) probably. Have any of you used the shettles or baby dust method and did it work for you? After 3 girls we are really hoping for a boy next time ☺

Hey all! Where's everyone in their cycle? How are things looking? Anyone testing soon?

Let's also introduce ourselves so we can become friends I'm Cheryl - I'm a full-time food blogger (I have some design and branding/marketing clients left over from my part-time days which I still really love!) and have one son who's almost 2. I live in Tennessee with my hubby and tend to be a bit "crunchy"! I love yoga and meditation and eating healthy. I'm letting myself obsess over fertility health and supplements this month so my focus is on that and not as much the actual process itself. We are hoping for a girl but I care less and less about that every day it seems!

I actually had some really exciting news for TTC yesterday... this is so silly. Have you heard of the Ava Fertility Bracelet? It essentially tracks your heart rate, skin temperature, etc., and tells you your 5 more fertile days. No temping, no peeing on sticks, nothing! You can use it for regular health, too. Anyway, I've been wanting one for a while but they're not super cheap, they run about $200 + tax and shipping. Anyway, I reached out to the company and offered to do a post about it in exchange for a bracelet and thankfully they agreed, ha! So I'm going to be really excited checking the mail the next few days... so dorky!! I'm thinking of writing a post about stress-free TTCing. You'll have to help me with ideas!

What do you all do? What do you enjoy doing?

Hi, I'm Amanda. I have a son who is turning 3 this month. I live in Illinois and work part time as a vocational coordinator. I work with students who have special needs on life skills and job skills both on campus and in the community.

I enjoy binge watching a new netflix series, spending time with hubby and going on adventures with my little guy.
