Hello ladies! I'm a few days early getting this thread going but am too anxious not to!
Whether this is your first month trying or you have been trying for awhile, all are welcome here. I love this forum because we are a group of women who comfort during the hard times, celebrate the joyous and provide a safe place for one another.
I look forward to getting to know you all and hope that each of us gets a beautiful BFP by the end of the month! Let me know when you are testing and will get you added on our list!
A bit about myself- I have one DS who turns 2 in April. He weaned last September and I am still trying to get my cycles back to normal (anovulatory and short LP cycles have been my norm for the past few months). FF gave me my CH today so it looks like I might have ovulated this time! Just waiting for AF to show up and then we will be trying! Totally going to be a POAS addict and will probably start testing around 7-8 dpo.
Some links that I always liked:
I'll post here. I'm tracking my cycle this time so I might as well be TTC even if we're not too serious yet. I can feel twinges today indicating AF will arrive within 24h. I will -probably- be testing very early April or the end of March, assuming I have any suspicions. So yay!
EDIT: You can throw me in for April 1st regardless. I don't actually know yet how long my cycle is or when I O, so it's approximate.
Alfie- got you added! i'm sorry about the bfn for this month but i hope that next cycle is the lucky one!
Arturia- good to see you over here! best of luck!!
Trixie- got you! wishing you all the best. i've been trying to get my cycles and CM back in line as well. Have you seen a lot of success with the raspberry tea in the past? I'm upping my water intake to at least half my body weight in ounces daily and hoping that helps.
thanks! Actually, I've only tried the tea for 2 cycles, but I didn't really notice any change. The first time I tried it, I completely missed my surge despite temping and doing opks for almost 2 weeks straight. Then af came right on schedule. It kind of threw me off and I started wondering what I did wrong lol. But I'm going to try it again with the hopes I get better results this time.
I'll also be upping my water intake, cutting back on caffeine, and I'm not sure yet if I'll be trying robitussin as well.
I haven't even done my March testing yet, but why not - being a part of the April thread sounds great! I will likely be testing April 27th.
I'm still waiting for AF to come before we officially start TTC (we tried once in November but life got in the way and we said we'd resume in March), but DH and I should be getting this going pretty soon. I'm looking forward to the adventure ahead and trying not to get my hopes up about a BFP the first or second time.
