I deleted the app on my phone to try and stop being an iphone addict so it has been a while since I posted.
I'm pretty sure I o'd on CD14 or 15 and there was plenty of DTD to try and catch that egg. This is my 3rd month TTC since having my son. Prior to being pregnant I was on the pill for 7 years so it is odd to me to feel ovulation pains. But I definitely get little cramps and bloated (just what I need!!) for a few days leading up to O day. and I have been using ebay cheapie OPKs also. Although I tend not to keep testing a day or two after i think I have O'd. Reading here, it looks like its possible to have positive OPKs for a long time before actually ovulating, so if this month doesn't work for us then I'll keep testing for a longer time.
AF due on 5th or 6th of Feb and despite being a total POAS addict, and having a huge stash in the bathroom, I'll wait this time. Hubby is away for work & returns on the 5th. He would be so disappointed if I tested before he was here as he remembers how exciting it was the first time we got a positive test last pregnancy (I say first time because I did around 8 different HPT of various brands just 'to be sure').
Congrats on all the BFPs already!
Hi all I'm still floating around and checking in... Now up to cd 6 and the baby dancing begins.
This month I've decided to not get too caught up in the whole ttc thing, but we are doing smep.
I've decided to not buy a pregnancy test until AF is due and I've planned a whole heap of things to stop obsessing and symptom spotting!!
A quick question, does anyone know if exercise has an impact on conception... I like to push myself when I exercise but am wondering if too much would affect things in the tww?
Hope all is going well for you all!
The first thing that came to mind when you mentioned exercise and pregnancy was thinking back to when we were TTC#1 and seeing so many ladies fall pregnant after starting to add exercise back into their lives.
AFAIK if you were exercising before pregnancy then it's completely okay to keep going within reason. I hope someone else can answer your question better than I did.
Hi ladies well looks like I'm day CD4 and AF is leaving the building YAY!!!!
Second month off the pill last month my cycle was 41 days do who knows when I will O. I have OPK's and a ferning microscope that one of my lovely friends has given me although if it's anything like last month I will know by the pain! I might try temping this month to even tho I shift work will see how I go :-)
good luck ladies baby dust to all
I've lost 2.2kgs since last Monday so if we're not UTD this month I'm going to get back into my running too. I also have a Wii which I should be using.
I was doing boot camp when we conceived DD, not sure if it helped our chances, but it certainly didn't hinder them!
