My DP has been FIFO for almost 5yrs (minus 18mths we did live on). He is on a 1/1 roster and it took us 12mths of active trying to conceive #2, The month we conceived he had taken a week off so the shift went 1week on 3weeks off 1 week on.
DP is back doing FIFO 1/1 and we are on month #3. We conceived last cycle (cycle 2) but i had an early miscarriage. Im currently 1dpo, so fingers crossed.
Sorry about your miscarriage Indigo
My husband has been doing fifo for the last 6 months so we are fairly new to it all!
But we are planning on starting ttc #2 around September... He is on a 3/1 roster and I'm already wondering how its going to work :/
First thanks Kellbell for pm today, appreciate it. Good luck next week with epu.
Hi Kelly good luck with ttc next few months. Sounds like your body is in good operation.
Hi Indigo sorry to hear of your loss. Hope your blessed soon. Cant imagine the pain of a loss
Im playing the waiting game for April bloods to be okay. Hubby will try for time off this cycle, but if not his frozen goods are stored as a backup. He's on a 2:1

Aw sorry about your miscarriage that's hard.
Fingers crossed for you it doesn't take as long.
It's hard with the 3/1 roster because it's not interchanging. They really are only home the same week every month and if you have a regular cycle and he isn't home that week you really never get a chance! Boo
Sorry DewDani you popped up while i was typing. Did you have fertility assistance for #1?
No assistance, we were lucky
Hi girls can I join with you all?
My DP does 2 weeks on 2 weeks off. We fell pregnant unexpectedly back end of Sept last year but lost bub at 10w6d resulting in dnc end of Nov. It took til mid Feb to get my cycle back and have just finished my 2nd AF.

I do hope I'm still in good operation, I'm clearly a fertile myrtle.
I have 3 Miscarriages under my wings as well as PCOS but still have 3 gorgeous boys.
It's all just a matter of the cards your drawn hey, I have everything crossed for an easy sticky conception when the time comes
Hi ladies. Wow this thread has taken off again. Well update on me, I'm day 18 of a very long ivf cycle. At this stage try are talking retrieval on Wednesday! Hubby and I are both FIFO on separate sites. Luckily I work in my dads company and have been fortunate enough to be able to take 4 weeks off during this cycle!!
