Are you doing anything to help you aid your TTCing efforts? Are you taking any vitamins or subbliments to aid fertility? Are you charting your temps or using OPK's? Or are you just waiting and seeing? Come on and share what you are doing to get baby #1!

You probably already know my plan from the other board, but here it is:

Temping for the first time this month
Using FF to chart my temps
Can't check CM as i dont seem to have any!
Bought my first pack of OPK's and will be POAS today to try it

DH is set on letting this happen when it is "our time" so i'm trying not to go to overboard with the planning. I'm on Cycle 4 of TTC, so i'm starting to get impatient, but not ready to give up by any means!

Edited to add that i am taking prenatals to!

I also have posted mine on the other board, but here they are:

Charting with Ovusoft & FF (CP, CF & BBT)
Clear Blue Fertility Monitor
Taking prenatals

I think I'm going to try B6 this next cycle too. There is some in my women's multivitamin, but the doctor said that I could take more.

Taking prenatals, however I forget most of the time.
I mark when I have my period and when I should "O" and then just pay attention to the cm.
And we are having sex much more than we normally do, and of course now unprotectd, the week around when I should O we have sex every day to every other day, and tring to make sure Im on bottom with my rear up a bit, and then afterwords we stuff a pillow under me and I try to keep it there as long as I can.
This is only Month 2, but we are going to try hard to make it as normal as possible, and not a job. We just don't want to make our lives revolve around tring. We would love to have kids, but we both feel if it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen. We both kinda like being DINKs.. (Duel Income, No Kids) and having the flexability with going and spending whatever we like
We'll just see which path life wants to take us, and go with it.

This is our 5th cycle
We've been using the withdrawal method for a year and a half
I take a women's multi, folic acid, and something else I'm forgetting...
Charting and temping for the first time this cycle
Checking CM/CP
Using OPKs
BDing every day for the few days leading up to and couple after O
(I'm even on top and trying the propped position afterward just in case...)
I think that's it--

Zoey-I know what you mean...I have little moments when I am especially nervous. I love my life the way it is now, spending what we want, sleeping in, just being happily married. On the other hand, this is my 8th cycle trying and it seems like the longer it takes, the more sure I am that we are ready. btw-I am from MN too--is DINKs a MN thing? I live in SC now and nobody I know uses it.

Anyway, I do the prenatals, chart cm and temps on ff, and try to bd more often, especially during O time. I am thinking about trying preseed and OPKs-possibly if there is no BFP in the next two cycles.

I take prenatals
I have irregular cycles, so it's hard to tell when or if i ovulate. I'm trying to get that straightened out at the dr's. Those of you that read my other post know all about it.

hello all!
my name is Paula and my hubby and i have been married for a year some odd days and we've been ttc since before we got married but i didnt do any research about fertility and all that stuff until like april.

anyways, im not really a newbie... i havent posted in awhile because i had become depressed and really didnt want anything to do with ttc for awhile.

but, i am back.

anyways... my plan of attack has been extended this month.

-check cm
-use opk when it gets close
-prenatal vitamins+ B complex, C, Calcium, E, and green tea pills.
if this doesnt work this month, im going to add another herb to the mix.

however, i dont think its going to be this month anyways. hubby has the flu and i have a feeling ill be o'ing SOON.

thanks for reading

We also do the pillow under the hips thing for about 30 minutes afterwards.

This is our first cycle TTC, so we're very excited, having more sex than usual obviously, but also doing the pillow under the hips thing and I take vitamins. I also chart fertile days and watch CM.

Taking prenatal vits, last month was the 1st time I used opk's, alot of Bd'ing , around time of O, i won't get on top (sorry tmi). Today we find out DH SA results. The only reason we did that was because he had cancer and radiation to his testical. This is our 5th cycle TTC. Last month it felt like a JOB, so I'm going to relax this month.
