TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

Here's My plan...& I'm sticking to it!

Well today is 12DPO. I've felt a couple of random burst of light cramps and that's it! I should be feeling AF by now I would think. I thought that it was due on Sunday but then I started to think, I O'd two days early, cd15, so maybe AF will be early? Say...Friday-ish. IDK. I know I don't feel her though! Other than those cramps I've been racing to the rest room every so often because I'm soooooo wet (TMI, sorry!) that I feel like it's her, but no! Ugh

So, I decided that next cycle I am doing NO charting, NO opk's, NO temping!! I will finish out this almost year of TTC natural. I have a general idea of my O day now so, that's good enough for me. Between school, and some family things going on right now I can't be bothered with it. I feel like it isn't worth the stress and aggravation I feel through out the month. If, in two months we still haven't conceived I am making an appointment. Until then, I'm going to keep doing what I do, keep on losing weight, keep up with home life and school.

Anyway, there's my "plan" :) Sorry this is a tad lengthy! Thanks for reading!!! =)

baby dust To All of you amazing Ladies!!

After 9 cycles, I wish I could say it get's easier for me. It can take a healthy couple an average of a year to conceive. Thanks, good luck and baby dust to you as well!

I just started using OPK's this month.. I got wondfo's not sure if I like it cause I can't really tell which line is darker etc!!They look the same to me!!This month is our 5th month of ttc, and i have heard it usually takes a couple a year.. i know it stinks.. and sucks.. trust me the first two months were the worst for me.. crying, sad, mad .. But actually with time it gets easier.. I don't test unless AF is gone that helps. Next month I am going to get a thermometer actually temp, and opks, and if no BFP I will stop using everything , and try like hell not to worry!! GL and FX hun!!

Good Luck. After stressing over charts and temping etc, its so nice to be able to relax and let it B. I did that last cycle and over all I was in a MUCH better mood. I was able to concentrate on other things going on, and over all it was just a great feeling not to stress it. I know my body well enough to know if I O or not and it was  an anovulatory cycle for me but still it was just great to have the break. I did start back charting again this cycle hoping I would O again since I seem to be in a patter where I O and then dont O and then dont LOL. Anyway good luck

TTC is probably one of the more stressful things I have ever done. With my first 4 kids, last one ended in mc, it took a month to get pregnant. This time we are going on 5 months. I wish I could make myself have the same plan as you. GL and baby dust to you!

It was a very difficult choice to make, to stop everything. But many factors play into the decision and it had to be done. The last three months I've O'd between cd15-17. I just hope that doesn't change this coming cycle., whenever AF decideds to show. I'm 14dpo now :-\ ugh. Now she's just being cruel! =p Best of luck and baby dust to you as well!!
