Thank you. DH was away for most of this week and we are going to try the Shettles method for a couple of cycles (please don't slate me!). I thought was too far away, but just wondering really. Thanks for posting - where did you find that figure from?
thanks sweetfall. i have read some sperm can survive up to 5 days, in the right environment (but most die up to 3 days)? i thought it was too long, until i read that, which got me thinking. i am certain i am ovulating now. thanks for posting.
really too? oh god, i need to just leave it to chance don't i? of course, i'd be totally over the moon with either, but i would like a girl at some point and dh needs some convincing to have 3. feeling very broody and god i'm so impatient. ttc and my control freakery doesn't really suit!
I have 2 boys and a girl..........things did change on the cycle I had a girl (only in hindsight can I see those changes as they were not intentional, I was sure we'd have 3 sons). I was dieting when I conceived dd, I was eating a massive box of salad for lunch(lettuce peppers, cucumber, tomatoes, quorn ham and lashings of salad cream) and I had far less carbs. I also took 3 days of angus castus (was too busy to remember after three days) at the beginning of the month and I ovulated far earlier (CD11) and I really didn't think we had any chance of being pregnant that month. Those were differences as when I conceived my sons I was a total carb junkie. Coincidentally the month I conceived dd we only dtd on cd 5 and cd 10.....by my pg dates I conceived on cd 11/12.
HTH, either sex is a blessing. My 2 boys are great fun, I love having two boys, they are great friends! Grils are clothes obsessed, my 1 year old just wants to get dressed all day everyday lol. I'm hoping for a suprise for the next baby. Come on af I have some ttc to do
