Hope it's ok Krista for me to start this but since I left IV for a while, now that I'm back, there are a lot of ladies I don't know.

well duh! Of COURSE you can hang out. This board is not the same without you. Just because you are doing it all on one day, does not mean you are NOT

Mattie, you are TTC, just in a non traditional way. It's a very valid way to begin your family. You belong here too.

Well, I'm here but I'm not TTC.. I have C'd. :)

I joined the board.. not sure.. maybe in the fall of 2008? Had my tubes reversed December 4, 2008. Only one tube was repaired. I was PG in Feb 2009, miscarried April 2009... then conceived again June 2009. I turned 42 August 28, 2009. I had a perfect baby girl February 16, 2010. I had my first cycle, after having Josie, in May. We decided to TTC. Next cycle was June 11. I got my BFP today... 12 DPO. Wow.

I'm dancing around sprinkling baby dust everywhere on everyone.

Not taking any supplements really... For a few weeks after deciding to TTC I started prenatal vitamins, iron supplements, folic acid and baby asprin. I think I may have taken a few dhea along the way the first week or so.

With Josie, I used the instead cups.. but not this time.

With Josie, we BD'd days ahead of time, during and after ovulation. This time, we are trying for a boy so we BD'd the two days after O. I O'd (according to FF) on Friday.. we BD'd Saturday morning, Sunday morning and Sunday evening.

Also, for both I charted my temps and used Ovulation sticks.... by the way.. anyone want me to send them a jar of newly opened OPK sticks? Maybe they're lucky? hehehe I only used two or three.. there are enough to go around!!

Baby dust to everyone. :)




Father's Day 2010 Jayde (19), Kendra(13), Kyle (10), Katie (7), & Josie (4 mo) w/Mike. (Keith (18) was unable to visit so we put up a pic)

bbyparit - Congrats on your pregnancy!

I did want to note for anyone reading over this intro that is it very unusual for anyone to conceive from a BD that is Post OVL. There is a 0% chance of conception post O according to a very persuasive New England Journal of Medicine article, which I have bumped up in the FAQ section.

Obviously bbyparit's experience is different or she was fertilized with a swimmer from several days before OVL or perhaps she didn't OVL when she thought she did. Regardless of her personal details - I would not want anyone to think that BDing post OVL was a reliable means of achieving pregnancy. It isn't.

Libby

P.S. Sorry to divert the Roll Call thread.

Ruth, any story like yours that results in such a happy ending is worth reading again and again.
