Marathon Method!!!!

If it doesn't work, at least you have alot of fun!

Here's the Marathon Method:

It's dependent on your O day. So for argument's sake, say O day is Day 14 (we all know it never is):

Day 10: Hide the Salami PM
Day 11: Rest
Day 12: Bury the Pork PM
Day 13: Toss the Sheets AM
Day 13: Meet the Meat PM
Day 14: Bury the sausage AM
Day 14: Hide the Bratwurst PM
Day 15: Midnight Sheet Twisting Early AM
Day 16: SLEEP
For the rest of the cycle: Relax, eat chocolate bon bons and don't discuss sex or ttc.

Good Luck! Let us know if it works.

P.S. Tell us what you use for chafing.

That cracked me the hell up!!! She'll need some preseed perhaps for the chafing

You know I've tried this and that and to be honest with you the above post holds as much hope as anything does. Either it's going to happen or it's not. I've been at this over a year now I guess I'm getting tired of trying also.

Leia you are always good for a laugh!

It seems each cycle I try something new. More supplements, temping, fertility monitors, OPK's, and one reading from Cheri22.

Did you order the Conceive Easy yet? I would try it but I suck at canceling and sending things back.

I could test now if I had a test but was trying to hold off till AF would be here....I'm going nuts and my chart had a temp dip for a few days........... I asked Leia in another post if she could post her bfp chart for me to look over..

Left field: I don't consider myself an expert on charting but I would expect AF to show in a day or two based on those temps.

OP: as for what I've tried, temping, OPK's, and timed BD worked once but then I m/c. I also have one DD from a "let's see what happens" approach.

Since then I've continued the above and added the supplements Fertile Aid and Fertile CM to help regulate my cycle and improve cervical fluid. I also did a round of Clomid in July - while taking the supplements - and I learned later that the Vitex in Fertile Aid counteracts Clomid! $&#*@!!!

I'm now doing a round of Femara, NO Fertile Aid, with a new OB who will monitor me w/ blood work, u/s, and more bd-ing.

The plus side of all this is that DH and I are having a lot of fun! I try never to put pressure on us. You know, you get crazy when you're a newlywed but you're worried about getting pg, so now we can be like newlyweds w/o the worries!
