Early 30s TTC#2


Hi!

It's quite difficult to know whether to join an existing group or start a new one, but since most groups I can relate to seem to be about 3,000-8,000 posts in I decided to try a new one and see if I pick up other newcomers.

As you might gather from the thread title I'm early 30s (32 to be specific) and about to start ttc #2.
My son is about 4
months.
My husband is 39 and ideally we want 4 children (or more!) so we don't have too much time to dilly dally!

All welcome to join, best of luck to everyone!

bit more about me:
We were
very lucky and conceived #1 relatively quickly. We are unaware of any fertility issues we may or may not have but I had a myomectomy in 2011 (removal of fibroids) and 6 new fibroids (large) have since been discovered, which may interfere with implantation.

This time around I'm doing the following: opks, temping (if I can ever remember to), honey&cinnamon, and I'll continue taking prenatal vitamins which I'm still taking since having my son. My hubby and I are often apart but when we're together we tend to BD daily so we'll definitely be doing that!

welcome emzeebob!

I'm from London but spend some of my time in Grenada with a view to moving there permanently in about 14 months if all goes to plan.

Good luck with everything! I'm new to OPKs as well - actually I just peed on my first ever OPK today! I want to do one every day from now on and do comparisons to see if I'm actually ovulating since I'm still exclusively breastfeeding and only 4 months post partum.

Then if AF comes I'll just do the OPKs daily from about CD5 until I ovulate (I believe I used to ov around CD9)!

I'm 30 and my son is 10... YEARS! Lol. I just remarried and we are TTC now. I have PCOS, which has kept me from ovulating regularly, so I have to take Clomid on days 3-7 to ovulate. This is the first cycle I ovulated! I have been temping this cycle for the first time also. And I did an OPK too, but I think I will do those in the future starting on cycle day (CD) 12 or so, now that I know when I'll ovulate due to Clomid. I keep saying, I can pinpoint every thing that happens in my cycle, but conception is still in God's hands. I'm just trying to improve the odds.

hi Samanthap!

Woohoo for ovulation!
You're right, at the end of the day it's out of our hands but definitely no harm in puuting things in place to increase our chances!

CD = cycle day

I just bought a pack of 50 opks off amazon for about 7 quid. You can also get a pack of 20 opks, 10hpts (home pregnancy tests) + a bbt (basal body temp thermometer) for about the same.

Just in case you're unsure AF = aunt flo = period!

I honestly don't know exactly what day I O'd. I'm anywhere from 4-6 dpo today, had a slight dip in temp today. I feel like I'm analyzing every little thing. Still have to wait a little longer to test though.
