hi KittieB! welcome! that sounds like a great plan. i use opks every month too and it's always exciting to see the positive show up. it's like ok yep it's now time to get down to business...shit just got real! good luck to you!

BSelck-thank you, i hope you are right. just gotta be more patient I guess. it's just super hard. but i don't have to tell you ladies that. I'm glad to hear you moved up your doc app! time will be here before you know it! to answer your question i've been taking just a regular prenatal vitamin. same one i took while i was pregnant with my daughter. i figured id be pregnant by now but looks like i'll have to buy another bottle! woo...

I'm feeling a bit better about not succeeding this month as AF is just about over and getting geared up again for trying next month. I dunno how I manage to still get excited to try it all over each time but i do. i've noticed that during the time when i am most fertile i don't notice that much ewcm...i think i might try preseed next time around...heard so many good things about that. could be my problem in the first place. we shall see.

How is everyone else doing? glong anymore symptoms?

So far I'm 2 DPO and as much as I like knowing when I O'd with the OPK's it's already making the tww hard
Unless I can find something to take my mind off of it all, I think it's going to be a long 10-12 days.

Oh Babydoll how exciting though!! TWW sucks but honestly I am jealous you're in it already!! Are you going to stay strong and not test until AF is due? or do you think you will cave? lol

I cannot wait until we all get our BFP's!! My husband's co-worker announced she was pregnant today so now I am really really really ready to start trying! lol We knew she was trying a few months ago, and she kept bugging my husband to go for a second kid so that was nice but now that shes pregnant, I'm ready to be there with her!

How is everyone else doing in their cycle? Is everyone using OPK's? I'm going to this month even before we start trying just to see and make sure I know when I ovulate. I usually can feel it, but I want to double check.

And then when we start trying, I think were going to start with the SMEP every other day BD plan and then 3 days in a row once you O.

We shall see!!

Baby dust to everyone!

jealous! the beginning of the ttw is always my favorite because that's when i have the most hope. but then i also hate it because the days seem to go by so slow to test. we've all been there and know what you're going through...they need to come out with something that is just like oh you had sex last night let me scan you for pregnancy...yup! you're pregnant! and no more waiting...*sigh* good luck babydoll...i'm pulling for ya!

bselck-i know the feeling of wanting to be pregnant even more when people around you start getting pregnant too. one of my friends just messaged me who just recently got pregnant and she's like is your daughter going to have a sister or brother? and im like well...we are trying...just taking a bit longer than anticipated...she's also due around the same time as my daughter's bday so i'm like ugh...i was pregnant at this time 2 years ago wahhhhhhh....your time will come tho bselck! that sounds like a good plan too...i might copy that next time...last day of AF for me...begin testing with opk next week..probably around feb 1st or 2nd. fun times.

hey there rose! welcome! that's so sweet that your son is as excited about having another baby in the house as you are! if you don't mind what is conceive plus and pregnacare conception? i am not familiar with these...

Oh I feel for those who have been trying a while and struggling. I haven't been through it, but know a lot of people who have. Hugs to you all.

CD7 here. I haven't used OPKs. Just temping and tracking CM, but this is also going to be our first month trying, so who knows what I'll do if it doesn't happen quickly.

I'll more than likely cave and test early. I have 18 IC to tempt me. I'm just trying to hold out until 10 DPO lol. Hopefully your next cycle will fly past so that you can start TTC too.

The tww does give you the most hope but I don't think it's my favorite because there's nothing we can do to change the out come. Yes! Almost like a little light or something so there's no waiting or speculating lol. Thanks. I didn't tell DH when I was ovulating, he likes the more relaxed approach so I'm hoping that has helped too.

Almost time to start BD for you I hope you get it this cycle!

Conceive plus is a lubricant like preseed but it's much easier to get hold of in the UK than preseed is. Pregnacare conception is just a vitamin especially for people TTC. I am not a big believer in vitamins but I used them the cycle I got pregnant with my son so thought it was worth another go.
