Lol. If I conceive this cycle my EDD according to FF would be 23 dec!! I went 9 days over and 7 days over with my girls, so could potentially be a Christmas baby! I would always feel bad that it was so close to Christmas but don't think it'd be worth waiting just for the sake of a jan/feb baby! We'll see anyway. I have a good feeling about this month, not that that means anything but I feel at Peace about it all!
Sorry about all my typos in last message. Stupid brain and stupid autocorrect!
So got my smiley this morning. So will O today cd18 or tomorrow cd19 which is great for me. Bd'd last night and just. We left hope at 6.15am to drive to Devon, took 4 hours. Bro and SIL are at work so managed a quickie!! Presuming I do O I'll be due 29th December! This time last year I'd have said no way to a Christmas baby now I'm not missing a chance.
I'd have a Dec 16-20 baby if I conceive this month (depending on if they go by LMP or O date), although I'm not feeling optimistic. BFN today again at 9dpo with FRER. It's still too early to consider myself out, but I'm just not feeling like it'll happen this month.
This is a totally stupid question, I know, but I'm obsessing a bit. Is there anything you can do around the time of implantation to help/hurt the chances of conceiving? For instance, is it possible that having an orgasm (with uterine contractions) around 7dpo-ish could cause an embryo to not implant? I understand that orgasm/excitement can also affect the pH ... does that have any effect - positive or negative - on conception?
I'm guessing the answer is no, but it's nagging me. I think we just had business as usual when I conceived my daughter, but I can't really remember.
I've read before that some FS don't recommend O during the TWW as the contractions can affect implantation but I don't think it'll make any difference. Being relaxed and enjoying yourself will have more benefits!! Enjoy!!
I think it's definitely contraindicated in IVF cycles. My doctor hasn't said anything to me about it though for IUI cycles. That said, I too am nervous about it.
There is an old wives tale that eating the core of a pinapple from 5-10 DPO can help implantation, but I don't think there's been any research on it. And it's only the core, and about 1/5 of the core a day.
Oh right! I totally forgot about the pineapple core thing! I'll still totally do it next month if we don't conceive this month!
Now I'm feeling nervous ... I had an O today (9dpo) and I've been having cramps. I hope that's not bad. I know it's contraindicated for IVF, but I thought that had to do with the IVF process rather than for implantation itself. Who knows.
