Hi ladies,

So I have been reading these boards for about 6 months now. This is my 5th month TTC a girl. My hubby and I have 2 adorable little guys already and would love a daughter to complete our family. I have altered my diet. I'm taking Calcium, Magnesium and Cranberry. I'm drinking Crystal Light like it's nobody's business. I'm using Replens every other day til O. We started with a 4-day cutoff, then 3, then a couple 2-day cutoffs... Sheesh! This is just taking forever! So... this month, I am not charting or taking ph, and we are just going for it! Is that even a sway?! LOL

Like everyone says, I would love love love to have another little boy. There is something so special about brothers. But, yes, there is someone missing... Even my two guys, age 3 and 2, say they want a sister! Wish me luck!

welcome to the board! I am also TTC a girl as well and have had no success though i think we might have done it this month. I am due for AF tonight,tomorrow Am at the latest. We were TTC for 6 cycles (including this). Just to tell you, i only did the long cutoff of 3 days for one month and than after that i went with a 1 1/2 day cutoff. I gradually got closer to O, not because i necessarily wasn't getting pregnant. The more i read, the more i kept finding that timing (for many) isn't the biggest factor and since i was doing so much else,

p.s - i was not implying for you not to do a cutoff, i was only telling you that i was doing a much closer cutoff and still not pg do it might or might not be totally related!

That's ok, Erin. I've noticed that a lot of people don't place as much value in the cut-off... and I'm just hoping that however my sway works out is enough for me. :-) When my boys were conceived, I was not tracking my cycles at all, so I've been gathering as much information as I can from everyone else's experiences. This whole swaying thing can be so stressful. I am really having a hard time this month just remembering that baby making should be fun, and it is such an amazing time for us! I really want that to be the focus this next month for me, and not as much about stressing about those darn 7 sway factors! lol

So I am currently on CD 21. I think I O'd on day 18, but didn't use OPKs this month. I had planned to just DTD through O, and just get preggers already! BUT hubby got sick, so the last day we BD was on day 15. I suppose there's a chance this could be the month, but I'm not really feeling it.

Good luck to everyone!

Kelly
