New cycle\new here..any veterans or cycle buddies out there?

Postby AuburngirlTTC » Thu Nov 30, 2017 6:47 pm

Hello! I’m 33 DH is 36. We are recently married and TTC. We’ve both experienced infertility in our previous marriages and worried about trying with each other. I’m in day 3 of my cycle and looking for buddies to track with and veteran buddies for advice.

Hey there :) Welcome to the board.

I'm not a veteran per se, but I'd like to follow your journey :) I'm a bit later in my cycle than you are (CD11 here), and started on this site 2 years ago when I was also just married and TTC #1 :)

What is the game plan for this month? Do you track ovulation in any way? How about supplements?

Good luck to ya :)

Taking multivitamins only for now

Thanks for your reply!
We are going to track my cycle, I'm a 27 dayer pretty consistently. I bought some of the cheap ovulation strips to see about timing ovulation best. Any experience with those? I'm not taking any supplements but maybe I should be. I have a doctor appointment with my OB on Jan 3rd and I'm hoping to discuss it with her and get her help when I'm there for my annual.

I think a good first step is tracking to see your LH surge to time O. I always use the cheapie strips and was successful last time I TTC :)

I start using them from about CD7 or so, and doing it this round, too :)

I think also having a good prenatal would be a good starting point, too... good to get the essentials in your body ready.

Lots of info on CM as well... what the different types could indicate :)

What do you mean you had infertility issues in the past? A doc mentioned that or you tried things and couldn't conceive?

It’s soooo much to keep up woh lol. I’m going to get a prenatal vitamin I think today and I’m on CD 5 so I’ll take your advice and start using the strips on day 7.

My ex and I got tested and he had low count/mobility/etc. he now has a baby with his new wife though. DH and his ex never got texting done but tried for several years without success.

Great :) I’m sure you’d be fine, just need to narrow down the time when you’d ovulate (strips and maybe even temp tracking), and make sure you get in great vitamins :)

Keep me posted x

I’m CD12 and already tired of BDing so often lol

I am a true veteran. Started at 19 and i am 42 now with one 9 year old angel and 4 children inbetween. (3 of which had infertility and YEARS AND YEARS behind it), which I pray will NOT be the case for you, but I started coming here, but have a different name now (used an AOL password, which I forgot & now they charge again which is soo dumb, so new name here), but have helped many as they helped me to get my BFP with 7 yo twin girls, and now one last time I am here, but I have A LOT of experience in TTC, preg. & beyond and aim to help anybody anytime, so message me if you wish :)! xoxo GL WITH THE NEW HUBSTER!!!
