Postby AndiA108 » Wed Jun 15, 2016 12:16 pm

Anyone starting a new cycle and want to chat through it? Hoping someone has a similar cycle to mine and we can also be close in the tww.
Plus day 1 sucks! Could use a buddy.

Hey Andi-

I just started a new cycle on Sunday. I found out I was pregnant in April and then at my 8 week appointment there was no heartbeat. I had a d&c may 11 and this is my first cycle since.

I'd love to be your buddy!

Hi all,

Just started my new cycle yesterday, so today is CD 2. Would love to be a cycle buddy to you lovely ladies.

Also, I'm new here, where do I get the charts from?

Btw, this is our cycle #3 ttc. I will be using OPKs and temperature tracking.

Good luck to all!

Sue.

Rachel - I'm so sorry for your loss. Welcome back!

Sue - welcome! Are you using fertility friend? I logged in through there and then went to chart thumbnails and copied the link to paste in to my signature. You can access your signature on here by going to user control - profile. Let me know if that helps! I love looking at charts it also helps to keep people updated on your cycle instead of asking everytime... now what cycle day are you on? lol ;)

Hi ladies- I would love to join you on the wait! I'm on CD 3 waiting for AF to end...

My husband and I have been TTC for about 6 months now. We've never conceived EVER so I'm anxiously awaiting my very first BFP. I have pretty regular cycles ranging from 26-28 days. Neither of us have any infertility issues that we know of- he is 31 and I am 30.

I have been temping and using OPK's to determine when I O. This month I will also be adding the following:
-Maca Supplements for both me and my husband
-FertileAid Supplements (for my husband)
-Raspberry Leaf Tea daily (for me)
-CLA supplements (for me)

And of course I will continue taking my regular prenatal's and Calcium supplements.

I'm hoping the addition of raspberry tea and maca will help create more fertile CM because I've noticed I've been lacking EWCM the past few months. Fingers crossed for us all!

Hey Veronica! Welcome!

Tell me more about this maca supplement? I actually just had some raspberry leaf tea today. It helps with cramps! I didn't know it helps to increase EWCM too. Maybe I'lll try to keep it up.

Hi Andi-

I'm not a pro on these supplements by any means- but here is what I've gathered! Maca is a super-food that has been used to increase fertility in both men and women for years. It works with the endocrine system to balance out our hormones. Overall it's supposed to give more energy, increases sexual stamina/desire (some people say they were getting it on like rabbits? lol)- and since timed sex isn't the most romantic thing at times, I figured this may help in that department! It also helps regulate womens cycles- whether they're to long or too short- Maca helps balance it out to a normal range. I purchased mine from Amazon- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0161GAASI/re ... words=Maca I literally just started taking it yesterday, so obviously I've noticed no changes in anything yet. Some woman say their EWCM increased while on this supplement as well- which is what I'm hoping for. The Raspberry leaf tea is also supposed to balance out hormones- I'm mostly taking it to help with my menstrual cycle (can be heavy and painful some months). I feel like I've heard some women say this also seemed to increase EWCM but I'm not sure. Figured I'd keep drinking it to see what happens!

I'm just hoping my cycle doesn't get thrown off this month with the added supplements- as I hear that can happen in the first month while things are getting all balanced out. We shall see..

Hey ladies-

Glad to have some company this month! When I got pregnant with my first we were using opks and I was temping. It took us about 8 months to get that bfp. When we got pregnant in April, it was just a month after I had my iud taken out. We're going to keep it pretty relaxed and just see what happens this month.

Keeping my fingers crossed for everyone. Waiting for that bfp is the worst!

Veronica - that's interesting! I'm going to look in to it. I'm taking vitex for kind of the same reason and I have to say I felt a difference last cycle. I felt more balanced. I even had less spotting before my period which I see can be a sign of an imbalance.

Rachel - That's wonderful! I'm glad we are close in CDs too!

I've been thinking about using preseed. I might get some on amazon. Have you used it before?

Hi Everyone,

How are your cycles going so far? I'm on CD 7 and already started using my OPK's- based on the test line, it looks like I will be ovulating within the next 3-5 days. Usually my test line is much lighter at this point in my cycle but they're coming out pretty dark this time around. I'm thinking the tea and Maca supplements may be speeding things along... only time will tell!

My husband and I are going to Hawaii exactly a month from today. I've considered avoiding TTC this month so I can enjoy a fruity cocktail (or 4) while I'm there (just in case I actually conceive this month!) but I feel guilty delaying things since it's already taking longer than expected! Also, if we don't conceive this month, I will be in my fertile window the whole time we're in Hawaii- which means we should have BD'ing more than covered next month lol. Our plan is to just continue trying and whatever happens, happens :) We will be obviously be happy no matter when we conceive!

Veronica, I say do what's best for you! And, there's no harm in taking a cycle off! I've taken a cycle here or there off though out my journey. Just don't put too much pressure on yourself either way!
