I started tracking all sorts of stuff from c1 after coming off bcp. This is now c6. It's nice knowing when you o... and that you DID o for sure. I try very hard not to plan the BD. I'm too afraid that if this takes a long time, BDing will become a job and no fun. I know that has happened to a lot of ppl. So, I only make SURE we BD for 3-4 days in a row at O time, aiming for starting 1 day before.
I've already noticed that for those few days, BD has the very early tinges of being a job or chore. That worries me. Soo...
Other than that I just try to keep it like sex was pre-BD -- when the mood is there, go for it. Thankfully, we have never had a problem with dry spells and end up BDing more days than not, anyway. hehe
I am on CD 5 now. Yay! So af is leaving today for sure. I will start Bding every other day starting with tomorrow night until I get a pos opk then every day until one day after a neg one. We bd way too much last month and it became a chore (every day once af left until I got a neg opk which was CD21!) yeah it was like 13 days straight or something crazy. We still made it fun, and no complains from OH but just tiring. So I am going to take it easy this month and just concentrate on my fertile days. I temp and use Opk just to make sure my body is still normal after BC and D&C. I hope this is our month because next month I will probably stop buyin the OPK and just guess and BD.
Ok... something to cheer me (and maybe a few of you)! We are early enough in our cycle, that I don't think any one of us has o'ed yet. So this should apply.
I was sitting here at work, sad about my last BFN... then thought wait. Here I am drinking a cup of CAFF coffee! AAAANNNNDDD... it's Friday and I'll be able to have a beer with my friends tonight! No coming up with lame excuses about why I won't have a beer when they are all kicking back and enjoying one! (They don't know I am TTC.)
With any luck this will be my last weekend of CAFF coffee and a couple of beers for at least the next year. So I am going to not think about what DIDN'T happen last month and think about what I will enjoy this weekend!
Ha ha I am totally there too. I have had coffee every day af has been here! I am an addict. Not much of an alcohol drinker, but its a friends birthday party tomorrow and I am going to have a drink with them then!! Then back to being good around cd 12 or so haha. Have a great weekend and I really hope we all get BFP this month. I hope I hope.
I was exactly the same when I first starting trying - and my bf would have freaked out if I started saying 'come on, I'm about to ovulate'. Now though we've been trying for a year so he thinks nothing off it that I take my temperature in the morning, or that when he walks in the bathroom there's normally a glass of my wee on the side or after bd I shove a cushion under my bum!!! I hope it doesn't take you that long though chick x
Ha, you guys cracked me up ...I'm sitting here in Florida, it's 8:35pm on Friday night and I'm drinking a rum and coke...... So I have to agree...we SHOULD enjoy it while we can! After all, it makes BDing that much more fun eh?? Only 3 more weeks to go.........lol!
Sorry ladies when I followed the link from my email I only saw the post from Meli Tia, so my last reply prob doesn't follow on from yrs!! As I am writing this I am enjoying a big glass of wine!! I have been thinking about that a lot lately....whether I should really give up drink altogether instead of just the tww, seen as we've been ttc for over a year....do you think that has a big effect on ttc? I don't really drink a lot but I do enjoy having a glass of wine to chill. I used to think bloody hell I'll not be drinking for 9 months, why stop whilst ttc cos it could take ages (which it has!), but now I'm willing to try anything. What are yr thoughts on alcohol whilst ttc?
