TTC this month only
30
Wed, 06-22-2011 - 10:10pm

I know there's a hopefuls thread, but I wanted to share all my details. We just had our baby boy on my birthday in December. While I've had baby fever since he was 3 months old, I was telling myself and everyone else we wanted to wait at least 1 year before TTC again. Last weekend, at a family party, I learned that several other moms were TTC again right now also. I was so excited for them, and it sparked the thought it my head. "Why not try and see?" I am currently ON my AF (6/19), which would put me at a edd of 3/25. My DH's bday is 3/14, and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have the next one on his bday.

Here it is!

Before my son, I was using a cell phone app called "My Days" to sorta figure out my ovulation dates. It took three months, but we finally got the BFP we were looking for. The only reason I bought the kit was because we really want a baby but can't take any chances this month. It's now or we need to wait until next year. The TTC boards on here are extremely helpful for learning more about charting.

Oh and your question about the kits. I bought this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Clearblue-Digital-Ovulation-Count-Packaging/dp/B000ZM24UM/ref=pd_sim_hpc_3

It's only good for 7 days. They're pretty expensive, but I had reward dollars to use at CVS to make it cheaper. There are cheaper kits that show just lines rather than smiley faces --but I heard they're harder to read.

If you're not really aiming for a specific time of year, I don't think you'll need the help of an OPK. Since you've recently stopped BF'ing, it'll take your body a little bit of time to get regular again.

Hmm, day late and negative? Is your cycle pretty predictable? I'm still in the 2 week wait. As of right now, the egg could technically still be trying to implant. However, I'm not feeling pregnant. I peed frequently last time, so I have a sneaking suspicion we didn't hit our mark. I might test on Friday.

Oh. I just stopped breastfeeding in may. And finally got my aunt flo in june. Normally my cycles r normal. I don't know, I am being very crampy today. I was crampy with my first kid. But then again it can be period cramps. Its fruserating, not knowing what's going on.

But hey you can be preggo and not have much symtpoms. I don't remember any when I was preggo with 1st kiddo. 2nd I had early symptoms. Well fingers crossed. :) let me know what's up,
