Hey hey! I’m on CD5. I am entering the TTC world after giving up and taking a break 2 years ago. I had only tried for about 3-4 months, but it became really stressful for me. I am now in a different place with less stressers in my life and I’m ready. I am 33 and do not have any children and have never been pregnant.

Yes me! I'm 36, overweight and on CD 6. I've got a 15 month old already. Would love to be cycle buddies with y'all!

Thank you! I just turned 39 last month and didn’t meet my fiancé until I was 37 (we get married in 123 days in Gretna Green!!) so I’m one of the last of my friends to start a family so I felt a bit alone. I found out I was pregnant with my first pregnancy at the beginning of this year but sadly it turned out to be as anembryotic pregnancy (discovered in February and completed in March) and I was assured that despite my weight and age I’m fit and healthy so my loss wasn’t nothing I did wrong. This cycle is the second I’ve had since my loss and it’s the first that we’ve decided that we’re both ready try again. I’m currently on CD5 and we’re going to try SMEP this cycle. I had a fertility check up last March and everything was in working order but I’m taking some supplements and vitamins along with my folic acid to try and help things along. I’m excited to see where this journey will take us!

I’m now 1dpo (going by OPKs and BBT I think I ovulated yesterday) - still got a wee while before I can POAS, attempting not to test too early this time though but not as hopeful this month as hubby put his back out two days ago so SMEP went out the window.

Today I’m 5dpo and the past two days I’ve been up in the early hours to pee and then it’s been almost every hour throughout the day, I’m feeling completely run down so it’s probably something I picked up - hubby’s back is still out so we didn’t BD as much as we should have.

Hey there i'm CD7 today. I'm 41 TTC my first. Been evaluated by RE and diagnosed with mild PCOS (all else normal). Had one CP in January and a blighted ovum in March @7 weeks. This cycle we are trying letrozole 2.5 mg 1/day CD3-7. I'm going to the RE on friday for an ultrasound to check my follicles and when they tell me i'm ready i will take the HCG trigger shot to induce ovulation. Good luck to all you ladies and i hope we see some BFPs at the end of this cycle!

Hi I’m 8 dpo.. or so I thought. I’m having positive OPKs again for the past 3 days this cycle and bbt just dropped this morning. so it looks like my body is gearing up for the O again? I’m starting to think I didn’t actually ovulate a week ago like I thought. Instead, I had an ovarian cyst that ruptured yesterday. Put me in the ER yesterday and they confirmed that I was not pregnant. So.. it looks like I might be ovulating again after all. I believe I will ovulate tomorrow, so tonight’ is my unexpected chance with DH. I’ll see what my bbt does tomorrow. I don’t know what to believe at this point about my body.. it’s all over the place!! FYI I’m CD 20, so there is still time to ovulate again if that’s what’s going on. On though it happens on CD 12, but why else would I have positive OPKs again and a sudden bbt drop?

Good luck on your journey ladies! I’m now 6dpo/CD21 (I know my ovulation date this month) and woke with mild cramping pains and a dip (0.3c drop) in my bbt (possible implantation???). Today I’m still peeing like crazy and I’m sooo hungry and irritable (but that could be hanger) I’m still not convinced this is our month with hubby’s back interfering with our SMEP plan.

@Jrosie - could it be a sign of implantation? Fx

@MrsM2Be it could be anything at this point lol. I honestly think I’m probably out this cycle with everything that has been going on. I’m starting to temp now and will be ordering new OPKs once I know AF is here. I feel like I will be better prepared next cycle. I really do believe that I ovulate later in my cycle than I thought. Especially since my cycles are closer to that 31-33 range on average. Probably like every other 3-4 cycles I have a 27-28 day cycle.

Only time will tell! I’ll take another pg test in a couple days.
Your symptoms are promising!! Hope this it for you!!
