Thanks for the welcome girls

If anyone is good with charting could you take a quick look at mine please and tell me what you think is happening?

Jo-bean I noticed at the end of the old thread that you need to loose weight before you will qualify for IVF I'm not far off the weight you are and I am currently attending slimming world. Some people disagree with attending classes like this andnif you feel the same by all means. However, it is amazing I lost 12 lbs in 5 weeks and that was with having the odd meal out so think what you can do if you are 100% on the plan. I have done WW before and I lost 2 1/2 stone but they changed to the new Pro Points and I just couldn't get into it so I changed to SW and I will never go back it doesn't feel like a diet I am a little piggy and I can eat loads partially cause of boredom but it is just changing what you eat and there is so much more choice. I would maybe consider it. It would help you get to your goal for your treatment. Either way I hope all goes well for you and your OH.
Best Wishes and loads of Baby Dust

StefanieC- I feel you pain and your DH's. I quit smoking a couple years ago and is was so, so, so hard. But I tell ya, I wouldn't have done it without my DH pushing me to. The best thing you can do is not take it personally that he hasn't quit yet. Quitting is so, so hard. And VERY scary (even just thinking about right now gives me the chills, and I've already quit)! The first month was the hardesst thing I've ever done in my life. Just remind him occasionally how much you dislike it and how bad it is for him, but try not to fight or be angry. He has to make the decision for himself- people that quit just because someone tells them to are almost 100% going to end up picking it back up again later. Cutting back is often the first step a smoker makes when they want to quit, and it sounds like he's got that part down. That's a BIG step to some smokers. (I know it was for me.) Maaybe take the time out to tell him how proud you are of him for giving up some of his smokes and offer to help him put together a quitting smoking plan. The best advice I could give him is pick a "Quit Day" far enough out in the future (say a month) that it doesn't seem scary yet and then everyday work on the "Quitting Plan". For me that was getting carrots, lolli's, crosswords, new video games, etc- anything that I could occupy myself with when the urge to smoke happened. It's important to be prepared for all environments, too. When he finally does quit, he'll have built up to it. And people who plan it out have a much, much higher chance of staying quit. And when he does quit (because with you there to support him I know he will!) just remind him that when the nic-fit does hit, must cravings only ast 5 minutes and then go away for however long he usually waits between cigs. Occupying those 5 minutes in ANY way that keeps him from smoking is what you have to focus on. Sorry for the hugs paragraph, but I know how hard this struggle can be. You two can do it!!!

UPDATE: CD33 and STILL no positive OPK. Oh mah gawwwwwd I'm gonna lose my mind! Come on second line! You can doooo iiiiitttt!!!!
Thank you for your help hun, it really is appreciated. I think part of my problem is that he doesn't like to talk about how many cigs he has had in case it makes him want another and while I do understand it, it means that praising him is a bit harder which he now understands so he is going to let me in a bit more so I can understand how well he is doing. I really like the quit plan idea so I think I'll gently suggest it to him. I think this is what I needed, an insight into the other side so to speak as I have never been a smoker so its hard to understand and you have really helped. Thanks so much hun

Hi StefanieC i totally agree with Jo-bean and pinksprinkles. Just tell him you know how difficult it is for him that you are proud of what he has done already. Tell him that you will both support each other through it all and then whisk him off and have great make up sex and because you will be nice and relaxed after sorting things out that might help things too .

Good Luck

Hey ladies, I joined in a hurry yesterday so I didn't get to give a little background about me so here goes! I'm 27, DH is 23, we started NTNP last April, I came off BC, when he was home on R&R (he's in the Army) and actually TTC in June right after we got married. It's been a long road so far but we wanted to try to conceive without medical help if possible so we did SMEP this month and added softcups and conceive plus to our arsenal. I also temp and use OPKs, the whole shebang! If it doesn't happen this month we're going to ask for a referral to a FS. I love BnB and I'm excited to be a part of this group!!
