We are just beginning TTC. My family has a history of difficulty conceiving and tough pregnancies, so we are a little nervous. The Dr. said not to worry and said I would have to wait through a full year of TTC before he'd do any testing. I knew he'd say that, but with my family history I was hoping he'd be a little more willing to test earlier. After reading all these pages, I had no idea about the temperature and cycle connection. Gosh, I feel like I know so little about my own body!! Hah!

I'm sure it was mentioned in this thread at some point, but if you want to learn more about your body and how it works, you should buy a copy of TCOYF (Taking Charge of Your Fertility) and join Fertility Friend.  TCOYF was a bit boring for me and I never really used it, but I love FF for tracking your info and cycles.  Temps were never a good indication for me since mine were all over the place, but I learned other things like using OPK (ovulation predictor kit).  OPK's are a stick that you pee on (much like a pregnancy test) and it will tell you when your LH surge is happening so you know that you are ovulating within the next 12-24 hours and need to have sex.  Plus FF has an online tutorial that was quicker and easier then TCOYF.  FF is free to chart, but you have to pay to be a member of the forums.  If you "like" them on facebook, you can sometimes get discounts, but you have to be quick b/c they only give a certain amount out and they go FAST.  So from my personal experience, if you want to learn more, you should sign up for the FF free version and see how it feels and how much you learn.

An update for me is I'm about a week late and about 95% I'm pregnant!!!! I'm waiting to take a test because my sister in-law and husband are coming  up today, and if I an preggers I wont be able to keep it a secret!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
