It seems AF is coming to get me end of this week (Fri), so instead of feeling sorry for myself I’m trying to look forward to October and getting to try again! 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Anyone else with me?

I’m totally with you on that!! Trying to feel excited that we get to try all over again smile

I’m on cd10, so just started opk testing - hope you have lots of fun this cycle! 😁

Jcmars01 Wed 22-Sep-21 21:21:01

I'm with you! AF arrived today and cycles are becoming longer each time since having the coil removed. Fingers crossed some sun and sea helps as we're off on hols shortly!

CatLady93 Wed 22-Sep-21 21:27:05

I'm with you 🎉 CD5 here, ovulating in about 2 weeks probably 🤞🏼 Good luck everyone 🍀

Cd8 here, hoping October is our month 🤞🏻 been ovulating around cd21 last cycle or two.
5th cycle for dc2
Cycles were regular til we started ttc and since then they've been all over the shop. Last month I was 4 days late, BFN, then AF next day.

Hello! Can I join please? I annoyingly only have two more tries before DH goes away with work for a very long time… so I’m hoping this month is the one for us! Im expecting to ov in 4 days according to my apps! Good luck everyone!

CD3 of cycle 3 over here smile

I stopped taking my pill back in May and I don’t seem to have a properly settled cycle yet (39 days and 38 days for the previous ones, before I had DS1 my cycles were 35 days) so I’m potentially ovulating around CD22 which feels aaaaages away!

Good luck everyone!

Welcome welcome everyone!

I'm 13/14 DPO today and waiting for AF tomorrow. I was SO sure this was our month, but have been testing Mon, Tue and yesterday and all 3 times BFNs. I decided not to test today and just wait for AF. Hopefully October is one lucky lucky month for all of us! x

May I join? Cycle day 2 here, of my first post partum period (my second son is nearly 11 months, my eldest is 3!)

Have decided to let nature take its course and see if a third comes our way. We were incredibly lucky and conceived 1st and 2nd month previously, but I was very focussed on the OPKs and temping, I hope to take a more relaxed approach this time (mainly because with 2 smalls and a job I don't have time to get obsessed again!).

Danani Thu 23-Sep-21 20:21:35

Good luck!!! 🍀

I will be shortly moving on to cycle 3 of TTC.
1st cycle used OPKs but we didn’t manage to DTD on the best days.
2nd cycle (this one) we DTD a lot, but I didn’t use OPKs so kinda winged it…
In October will be cycle 3! I’m planning to use OPKs and try BBT for the first time. I’m not leaving anything to chance!!! Lol 😆
Also I don’t know how much is true and how much is BS, but after DTD I won’t be jumping in the shower. I know realistically it really shouldn’t matter, but you bet I’ll be laying on my back with my legs in the air or whatever the rule is 😁😁😁

If anyone has any tips or tricks to share, would personally really appreciate that!
I still struggle a bit with the whole how much to DTD… I’ve read somewhere every day in the fertile window, elsewhere it says every other day. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Looks like it's CD1 again for me. Onto cycle 12 - feels like a big milestone...can October please be the lucky month!!

GingerFox2021 Thu 23-Sep-21 21:17:34

The same! Cycle 12 or maybe 13, can’t remember anymore.. probably I should even jump to futuristic November bus as going away for October 🤷‍♀️

Danani Thu 23-Sep-21 21:42:05

Y’all, October will be IT for us! I can feel the magic in the air! 🎃 But seriously, sending positive vibes to us all! I know it will be one lucky group! 🍀

Hello! How are we all today?

AF is starting for me this morning, got some pink tint when wiping (sorry TMI) which means it’s starting.

I am disappointed, I really thought this month was the month, but hopefully it will be one lucky lucky October!

Hey! Nothing changed but from today I am trying to be positive. Let’s see where my positivity will lead. Simply, getting tired to be dissappointed and sad.
Good luck to us!

Joining this thread :-). x

CatLady93 Fri 24-Sep-21 12:25:51

Hi guyssss 🥰 CD7 for me, usually ovulate around CD17-21 so I'll start OPK testing in about a week I think and looking out for EWCM before then too 🙏🏼 I feel good about this one for some reason.. if we conceive then I'd be due around the same time as my own birthday which I love.. cancer (star sign) ♋️ all the way! 🤟🏼🤣

Are you guys planning to try anything different this month? X

Danani Fri 24-Sep-21 13:28:49

Hey hey! Glad to “see” some familiar “faces” in here! 👋

I’m using OPKs this month, and for the first time trying temping.
Also making it a priority to drink lots of water.

CD 1 for me today. My predicted window is CD10 to CD 16. So probably will start DTD from next weekend and ramp things up the few days before O.
My apps are predicting O to be on Oct 8, it will be interesting to see what the OPKs and BBT show!

Anyone else in sync with me?

AF is still here for CD4 but it does seem to be slowing down so I’m thinking tomorrow will be the end of it.

I’m wondering how many days this cycle will be too. I’m hoping less than the last one so that I can see it all settling!

I’m managing to get my temperature taken most days but my sleep isn’t that good so we’ll see how it all goes!

mrsS21 Fri 24-Sep-21 14:21:58

Hey ladies!
Cd12 today, started opk this week as really no idea when I’m due to O…with my last two cycles being so long and random I’m cautious I don’t want to miss out dates!

Feeling excited for this month too @CatLady93 🍀 positive attitude hopefully will lead to great news! If we conceive this month I think there’ll just be 3 years between our little one and our new bean 🥰

FlyOnTheWall89 Fri 24-Sep-21 14:31:57

@Danani I am CD2 today and ovulate on CD16/17 usually so we are pretty much in time :-).

jadeypies Fri 24-Sep-21 14:35:47

Hi everyone, hope you don't mind me joining. We are ttc #1 but unfortunately just miscarried at 6weeks. Had a bfn now so trying again this month. I'm on CD4 and finished bleeding so fingers crossed this is our month. I don't track anything, we just dtd every other day throughout the month and hope that I hit ovulation 🤣 I can't bear the idea of it being too prescriptive. Good luck everybody, look forward to seeing some bfps 😊

CatLady93 Fri 24-Sep-21 15:00:16

@Danani I'm probably ovulating around 8th October too!! 🥰

beckybabyx Fri 24-Sep-21 15:08:35

me too @CatLady93 and @Danani .. so glad when it falls on a weekend grin

Peauela Fri 24-Sep-21 16:38:40

I will be ovulating in the next few days but testing in October.. Is this a thread for me? grin I could use some more places to chat!
