My name is Emily, I am 30 and DH is 31. We have been together 4 1/2 years, married for 3 in July. We have a 3 yr old son named Danny. Got my BFP in February after 5 months of TTC after having the Paragard IUD removed.
The things we did differently this month to conceive were as follows:
-I took FertilAid for women as instructed starting on CD 1.
-I took Fertile CM as instructed starting on CD 1.
-DH took FertilAid for men as instructed
-Drank one to two cups of green tea every day
-STOPPED using my allergy meds on CD 9 since they can dry up CM. It was miserable, but I def saw an increase in my CM.
-Used PreSeed lube
-Laid down for 30 minutes after BD: 10 minutes on my back, 10 minutes on each side. When I fell asleep, I would fall asleep on my stomach in case any was left in there and needed a new angle to reach up there.
-I used OPKs, and I used SMEP > started BDing every other day on CD 9. When I got as positive OPK, I did it every night for 3 nights in a row, then skipped a night, and did ot one more time. Tested on 13 DPO and got a BFN: a stark white, no hint of a line BFN. Waited until the day after AF was due, and got a BFP on 17 DPO.
Really rooting my ladies on here! I know it's going to happen! Per the predictions, Spring and Summer are going to be exciting times on here!
Alissa- that post was EXTREMELY helpful for me! Thanks! I am thinking about just jumping straight to IVF, but I am very interested to see how your IUI works out. Please keep me posted!
AFM, Well today is going to be an AMAZING day! I can tell already!!! It will also be a S-L-O-W day for me.
few things that will make my day like that:
1. waiting for DH's results back.... they have the sample!
2. our division chief and my DH's group leader requested a meeting at 4pm with DH.... only thing we can think is that they are proposing to HIRE him!!!
-means super AWESOME healthy insurance and CHEAP!!!!! (some cover IUI, but Ill need to do research to see if any help cover IVF)
- also means we wont be put in the predicament together (like a week ago)!
DH just texted me saying "its going to be a good day, our wedding song just came on!"
Well, I guess its off to data analysis... if I can concentrate... Which means being right here at the computer if anyone is around.
Oh and if we HAVE to do IVF and want to do the "refund" option, I have to be BMI 5.... I was nervous I would have to do MAJOR dieting... nope just have to lose 15 lbs, I can do that in 1 month if we decided to do that.
Emily- I HOPE so. They have to look at it ASAP otherwise they will die. So I am guessing they should know soon.... then they have to call. UGH. And I can't remember the amount of time it took to find out the first time. I have a portal online for all our results (they usually call too)... so I keep refreshing it. Nothing yet.
