I am new here I hang out lots in TTC #1 but haven't posted in here yet. So, hi!!


Name/Age: Jessica/29
How many months have you been TTC? Almost 12! And we did the NTNP for a year first.
Is this your 1st, 2nd, 3rd.. etc? 1st
What you doing to increase your odds? Lots now! I do chart. Used to mostly manually but trying to use FF more now. I used to have a short LP. Last few cycles I did get it lengthened! I changed my diet a lot (cut out grains and processed foods, added way more veggies). I am taking fish oil, B vitamin complex, and getting lots of sunshine for vitamin D, and I'm taking a tbsp of Maca in my morning "fertility smoothie" lol I also have been walking 2-3 miles most days. I just started seeing a chiropractor 2 weeks ago.
Any losses? Pretty sure we've had a few chemicals.
What is your next step in your TTC journey? Hubby recently had a SA (normal). In July I am having a laprascopy for possible endometriosis and an HSG.

Name/Age: Leslie - Turned 29 yesterday (DH is 37)
How many months have you been TTC? This is our first month actively trying to conceive, though I haven't been on BC for about 8 years and we periodically NTNP.
Is this your 1st, 2nd, 3rd.. etc? This would be our 3rd (and likely last)
What you doing to increase your odds? Using OPK's and new app on my iphone to keep track of everything
Any losses? No
What is your next step in your TTC journey? Same thing we are doing now, though if it gets to be a few months, I'll probably add some other methods of charting in there.

Hope you don't mind if I join you all.
