SMEP buddies?


Hi ladies DH & I had been WTT in June, ended up NTNP last month, & are officially TTC #2 now! I am a teacher, & unfortunately we cannot afford for me to be a SAHM as much as I REALLY want that. With my DD, I had her in May & was able to stay home til late August that same year before I had to go back to work. For this pregnancy, we have agreed that I can take the rest of the school year off, but I'll still have to go back late August.

Long story short, the sooner I get pregnant, the more time I'll have at home with the new LO, once s/he is born. So, I'm pulling out all the stops right away - SMEP, OPKs, BBT (which I started last month to get a new baseline), and Preseed. These are the methods we used to conceive my DD.

Today is CD 9. Anyone else doing SMEP this month?? Would love to see how many of us get our

FX for you!!! My first/only time doing SMEP resulted in my DD. I've always heard really good things about it! That's why we're doing it this month too!

We are doing SMEP this month too in hopes of conceiving our second. Unfortunately we had 2 miscarriages and about 1 year of trying before we successfully got pregnant with our DD but we started SMEP, acupuncture and Mayan Fertility Massage about 3 months before we got pregnant with her. We are hoping that by starting SMEP early we will have faster results but still ready for the long haul.

Our DD is almost 13 months and this is our second month ttc. I got a positive OPK this AM and should ovulate Saturday. My postpartum cycles are a bit different than before and I am not temping so Saturday is a guesstimate based on my cycles before pregnancy.

Welcome itsawonder! So sorry to hear about your MCs.

FX that you get your BFP this month! I'm a huge fan of SMEP!

When do you think you will be testing?

currently at the tail end of SMEP this cycle. i didn't get a positive opk though. i just relied on ewcm and my previous ovulation cycle day. today is our rest day after the 3 consecutive days of bd, and tomorrow will be the last day of bd.

right now my temps won't go up! so frustrating.

Moonstar maybe continue to BD every other day just in case? Has that ever happened to you with charting before?
