I was talking to DH last night and he doesn't want to take this cycle off. I know I won't be on the Clomid for sure but he wants to still try. I told him well then you can take all the OPKs and check CM/CP and temp and make sure you're taking your supplements but I need a break. I understand where he is coming from though. It's taken us so long to get here and this loss doesn't change the fact we are running on a deadline. He knows sometimes you are more fertile after a loss and he doesn't want to "waste an opportunity" (his words). It does help in a way to know he does want this as bad as I do, even if he doesn't show it all the time.
I think we have come to a compromise. I will still temp because it's best to stay in the habit anyway, and he's right that a few weeks from now I may be wishing I had kept it up. Most of the stuff I take I need to take just for my general health even if we weren't TTC but I won't take the EPO and if I miss my met one day because it's just not convenient I'm not going to stress about it and take my cinnamon/inositol instead. I won't be using OPKS though or timing sex. He wants to know if I notice fertile CM so I will tell him and if he wants to do it I won't turn him down but I'm not going to worry about it.

Yes getting pregnant at all is a good sign even though it's hard to think that way right now. We also found out that DH has at least some good sperm without getting an SA done which we were going to do this week otherwise. I don't know if we are still supposed to get one done or not...
