I am on day 3 and am going to start trying for a girl this month. I wanted to put my plan out there to see if anyone can think of anything else, or sees any problems with the planned timing.
I read Dr. Schettles book and have been charting my cycle lengths and CM for the past 3 months. I always assumed I was regular but it seems that my cycles have been 29, 28, and 27 days in length. It does seem that according to CM that I am likely ovulating about day 15. I used OPk's last month, and got a positive OPK on day 15.
Using this information I planned on DTD on day 11 and 12. Is that 3-4 days prior to ovulation? Or is ovulation more likely to be day 16 since I got a + OPK the morning of day 15 (testing twice daily)?
I have been increasing my calcium and magnesium uptake. I am taking cranberry supplements and drinking more aspartamine. I may take one dose of Sudafed prior to DTD. I will also do a lime douche prior to DTD.
My husband is going to abstain (we'll see..) for 7 days prior to this attempt.
Thanks in advance for any advice
