Literally just today, right after making an appointment for my doctor to look into why I am still, 10 weeks after my d&c, getting VVVFL on tests (despite ovulating twice and getting two periods), I see a pregnancy announcement on FB...April 2018...ugh. Knife to the heart.

Stupid announcements. My bosses wife is due in November I think. He's almost 50 not sure how old she is. They already have 2 and he tells people all the time not to have kids. It's so distressing when that stuff happens. All I can say is its okay to feel jealous and angry. The fact one minute everything was fine one day and not the next must be one of the worst things to go through.
Afm I am in the waiting game and have now been reintroduced to all things cartoon. I know the official advice is limit screen time before 2 but there are some good educational shows I put on in the background while dd plays in cabinets or run laps... poor girl is getting her molars so she's been extra clingy lately

It's been a few days so I'm curious how everyone is doing.

Alli- let us know when you get your results back from the Dr.

Artsy- How far along are you now? Are you going to find out the sex of the baby?

Any other updates?

AFM I'm cd9 and usually ovulate on cd20...so another 11 days to go. The wait is so annoying.

I donít go for blood work til Wednesday! With the weekend, and no appointments available and a couple full work days I couldnít get in til then. I probably wonít get results til Friday if I can get in to my doctor. Iíll probably ovulate by then so I hope nothing is wrong! I am cd10 and starting OPKs. I oíd d15 last time, and got a positive opk cd13. DH and I bd this am and will likely skip a day and then do Tuesday through to whenever I get a temp rise, I wanted to be more relaxed about it and also not make DH feel used and exhausted ha. It was a Marathon last month.. trying to make it more natural this month while still covering our bases!

Yeah I'm trying to figure out how to do that too. DH says that bding has felt like a job with me telling him when we need to do it and how often. I totally get that but I'm not really sure how else to do it. We both wake up and go to bed at different times so we do have to kind of plan it. He is totally on board to do whatever in order to conceive and is happy to do it, but it still is a lot. I think this time we will just stick to every other day as opposed to every day during fertile window. I think that will help some but at the same time will ensure we hit the right days.

Your DH sounds similar to mine. Keen to do whatís needed but canít help but feeling like a little bit of the intimacy is lost in all the planning and timing. Itís a bit easier for us as most days we are asleep/awake at similar times (I wake up before DH, but only by about 30 mins, and heís happy to oblige a morning session!) I think your plan sounds good!! There should be plenty of swimmers in there if you go every other day.

I think DH and I are going to try and BD every day this week. Alli, I was doing some research on frequency of intercourse to increase chances of conception and came across this article, you might be interested in reading it.

Link to article: https://priyaring.com/blog/scientifi...cy-intercourse

Quote:
It is true that sperm concentrations will drop with increasing frequency of intercourse but daily intercourse in the majority of men does not drop the count enough to reduce the added conception benefit of each act of daily intercourse (source). In fact, studies show that while it's true that sperm count may go up with abstinence, sperm vitality overall goes down. Researchers found that by ejaculating within 1 to 4 hours and 24 hours again, total motile sperm count increased over and above that of the first ejaculate (source).

This is an awesome article, thanks for posting! I swear everything I read contradicts itself so it's nice to see something with scientific evidence and research.

In past cycles we've mainly BD every day during fertile window with us skipping a day every now and then. This makes me feel better about that knowing that every other day is still ok for those days when we are just too tired.

That is so interesting thank you so much! There is so much conflicting info out there but I think I agree...overall, most doctors say an active sex life all month long provides the best chance, and if you do it everyday for 3-5 days in a row during the fertile window, all the better! And it keeps DH happy, win win!
