Back to CD1! Cycle buddies?!


So, AF started today. Off to another cycle of trying. My cycles have been getting shorter which is good news for me. This past cycle was 5 1/2 weeks which is awesome compared to the 6 1/2 and 7 1/2 week cycles that I had prior. Maybe my body is finally figuring things out. This cycle we decided to stop charting. No more temping, no more checking cm and cp. None of that. It was too stressful and made it no fun. So, none of that for me this cycle. I will, however, post daily symptoms. So, we will see. Anyone else around that same point cycle wise as me? I would love for you to join me.

Cramps like crazy, acne, bloating, and gas.

Hi bpberger I am on CD 3 today. First cycle ttc #3

I think it’s a great idea to put down our symptoms each day - and it sounds very promising for you that your cycle length is more where you’d like it to be. My cycle has also become shorter the past two cycles...although we weren’t ttc yet I always liked knowing what was going on with my cycle. I used to be quite regular at 27 or 28 day cycles. Then cycle before last was only 24 days long and I thought it was due to stress (which I don’t usually suffer from). Now this last cycle that just passed I was relaxed or so I thought anyway- but it was even shorter at only 20 days long! So now I am doing OPK’s every single day to try and figure out what is happening. Sorry for the long winded intro/explanation.

So far I have slight visible lines on the two OPK’s I’ve done. Normally they are stark white before CD 8... so we shall see!

Hope this is going to be a life changing month for us both in that we will get our BFP’s

Hi StrawBerry2! Hopefully this lines get darker for you. I'm really hoping that this will be my month and hopefully it will be yours as well. The only "tracking" I will be doing this cycle is symptoms. And that will be just jotting down what's going on that day haha. I'm coming at this month with a clear head and I'm trying to focus on other things and just relax about trying to conceive.

CD 2...
Pretty bad cramps today. Migraine and acne.

Not much to report on today.

Hi bpberger I have heard of a lot of ladies who got their BfP the month they stopped charting and just relaxed.

I have been doing my OPK each day, and the line is still very faint, but still there so I am happy with that. I will post a pic soon of the progression (hopefully there is some)

I am CD 5 today. AF is tapering off. No other symptoms to report.

Very light period today, bad cramps, headache. I had some back spasms tonight but those are totally unrelated. Had a rough day at work and it took a toll on my back. That's all for today.
