Any TTCer's out there?

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I was going to say I read 3 hours.  The thing I find hard is that if you get up at 5am during the week for work, you can test and 3 hours +/- 5am every day.  So 2am to 8am.  But what about on the weekends when you want to sleep in?  I have to wake up early to take my pee test?  That's kinda annoying.  This weekend it worked for me since I happened to be up early, but I'm thinking I'm going to have a problem with that part.

Yeah, I know...having to get up early just to pee sucks...

But I do think you have to keep doing it on weekends to be consistent...

From what I've read, I think most people set their alarm, pee and then go back to sleep. Or try to anyway:-)

 

And of course, I now have yet ANOTHER pee question...

This is for the digital fertility monitor in particular...Do you have to test at the exact same time every day...OR is it okay as long as it's within the "window"...?

Well I just started the CBFM, so I can't say from my own experience, but from reading the package that comes with it and it's perfectly acceptable to be within the window that is 3 hours +/- you test time.

That's what I thought -- I just wanted to make sure I was reading it properly:-)

Some of the instructions I've had to read a few times to make sure I got it right, lol:-)

Yeah me too!  I hope it's worth it for all of us!  I just hate wasting so many test sticks.  I have never O'd before CD18 before, but they are making me test from day 6 on for the first cycle, so that's at least 12 wasted tests.  Oh well, maybe we'll find out I'm fertile alot earlier?

Hello, I hope everybody is doing well and that their projects are moving forward !

 

I wanted to share some good news as this week marks an important milestone for me as I reach 13 weeks on Thursday. Yes it's the end of my first trimester and now the risks of miscarriage are in majority behind me !! So happy smile159.gifToday I went for my first trimester screening and the baby was moving so much it was hard to measure the nuchal translucency ! We saw all his hands and feet and fingers it was awesome :)

 

Next big step is the results of the screening... and maybe the amniocentesis... and then opening the baby registry lol !

 

Good luck to all !

Congrats, that's a great milestone to pass!

 

We've been TTC for well over a year now and I think we've about given up hope, so are taking a much needed step back to reevaluate.

Congrats Ayita! That is certainly a milestone, and a huge relief I'm sure!

 

Carly - I am sure that you and your hubby will make the best decision for you as a couple and as a family.  A year without success must be difficult, and I hope that this time of reflection allows you both the time needed to help you determine the next step.

 

We are still at the beginning of our journey, but I am currently on CD43 and starting to get anxious.  I POAS on Saturaday to reveal a big fat BFN.  So I'm sitting here waiting for AF to arrive but no luck.  I was sure she was on her way a week ago with all the symptoms I was having last Tuesday - bloating, irritability, chocolate craving, anxiety - but she is still a no show.  So I'm sitting here waiting.... anyone else have crazy long cycles after going off the Pill?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
