So my last attempt didn't get me pregnant. I am not sure why. Maybe my ph was way too low and with the cut-off there was none left? Idk but I am back to the 2ww for ovulation. Anyone wants to be buddies?

I'm with ya! I'm on CD9 at the moment (24th November). We are planning on DTD on CD13 + 14 as I ovulate on CD17.

Pink dust to both of us!

Hi Kiwi
I usually ovulate on cd16 (I think). ANC I will try a two days and 3 cut-off. But i think if I am very sure about my ovulation time, then I will try O+12.
I am also taking supplements. What about you?

We are trying to do the diet, but are not being very disciplined about it! But I am taking folic acid, B6, calcium and magnesium... so we shall see

DTD every day commenced last night! Haha, it feels so clinical planning it like this, but I don't think DF is complaining... we'll DTD every day now til Tuesday, which should be a 3 day cut off. Ugh, I just hope the stress from my up and coming wedding (10th Dec) doesn't delay ovulation at all.

Congratulations on your wedding!
I am having big trouble with the diet right now because it's thanksgiving and there are so many yummy desserts and food it's just too hard to skip it. I just had some pumpkin roll so to make it better I ate some yogurt wi black currants?
This time around I will do it only two times before ovulation (that got me pregnant the last time) and if I have cm I will dry it out with sudafed which I accidentally did that time too because I thought I had sinus.
That is all for now and let me know how you are doing with dh. Sometimes they feel a little used with so much planning (that'd why mine doesn't know about any details )

DF doesn't seem to mind the planning too much... he wants a little girl as much as I do, so he seems all for it (we lost a little girl in our first pregnancy, and are only planning on two kids, so really want one of each). Obviously we just want a healthy baby, but if a little swaying gets us a girl, then we're both all for it! Also, since having our son, our sex life hasn't exactly been rocking, so when I tell him we 'have to' DTD, he's happy as!! lol!

Yes, can imagine how hard it is avoiding all that nice food! I'm actually a little allergic to dairy, hence the calcium supplement, but am still eating lots of cheese and yogurt! I now have eczema all up my arms and a runny nose... oh the things we do for babies! Xmas and a week long camping holiday is just around the corner, so am really hoping I just get pregnant this cycle, then can go back to eating what I normally do.

Do you already have kids?

Yes. I have a son. He is 6 years old and very handsome, smart and nice. We also lost a baby girl. I was 20 weeks. I just want another girl now. But of course a boy would be fine (but a girl first would be better).
I wish my dh was like your df. Mine doesn't really want more babies. He is just happy with one. So that is a disappointment and sometimes we get into arguments because of it. He is always contrary to what I want. Very difficult husband. Oh well hopefully he can give me a daughter. I need to keep myself positive right?
Lots of baby dust for you and me and all the ladies wanting girls! how far along where you when you lost your daughter?

I'm so sorry for your loss We were 15 weeks when we made the decision to terminate our pregnancy. Unfortunately our baby girl had too much of one chromosome, and not enough of another... which resulted in her not forming correctly. It was one of the most horrific experiences I have ever been though and I would not wish it on my worst enemy. After that, we went through genetic testing ourselves to try and find out why that happened, and it turns out I am a carrier for a genetic disorder (Balanced Translocation)... So with every pregnancy, if I don't miscarry (of which I have a 50% chance of doing), we will go through a CVS procedure at 12 weeks to make sure the baby has 23 pairs of chromosomes, all in the right place - otherwise the baby will most likely die during the pregnancy.

I totally understand the obsession to have a little girl, after having lost one. I love my son to pieces, but totally feel like I'm suppose to be a Mum to a little girl. I try to keep telling myself that the baby needs to be healthy, and that is all that matters, but I'm so scared I'll be disappointed or upset if I have another boy I don't think we'll find out the gender while pregnant, that way I won't have to much time to think about it... Once the baby is here and in my arms, it won't matter about the gender!

I'm so sorry your husband isn't being supportive That must be really hard. I was so insanely desperate to get pregnant again after we lost our daughter... and am lucky my DF supported that. Today it has been two years exactly since we lost our baby girl, and I still find it so upsetting. We planted a tree in memory of her today. I don't think men really understand how the loss of a baby can effect a women.

Hi, ladies! Hulu, how have you been? Sorry you didn't get your bfp last month. Hopefully this will be your month! Hi, Kiwi! Congrats on your wedding! Sorry about your loss.

I am hopefully joining you! I started the medicine to get my period a few days ago so I take that for 10 days and then I should get my period and start the clomid! It's all new to me so I don't know how I will respond. I also starting go pretty strict with the diet and lost more weight so I hope I didn't lose too much and negatively affect my fertility even further. I'm down really low right now. I just can't seem to get this whole sway thing right!

Hi there lindsaylou, I'm so sorry for your losses

I really have no idea if swaying works, but from my own experience, timing has seemed to work in regards to DTD certain days prior to ovulation. I'd recommend reading through the stickies on this board about diet, supplements, timing and positions. I figure giving it a shot is worth it.

I don't think there is anything wrong with admitting you want a certain gender over the other... as long as you love the baby with all your heart once it comes along, regardless of gender

Looking forward to getting to know you!

I also have 3 beautiful boys and I know the pulling feeling of wanting a daughter. I have had 2 m/c this year (found out I have low progesterone after my twins were born) and can't help but wonder if one was my girl. Since both times I had pg symptoms but with my boys I had none. We of course want a healthy baby but I know if when I get pg again it turns out to be a boy I will be devistated at first since this is our LAST baby. I also have stooped to checking Chinese Calanders, lol. And two say girl this month and others say boy. Not sure if you believe in God but I do so I have been praying like crazy. My DH is working out of town and we only see eachother on the weekends so I am not timing our DTD to O we are just going for it. I am eating a lot of veggies and taking my prenatal vitamins with extra Folic Acid (due to my m/c they increased my Folic acid.) Anyway would love to follow you on your journy and see if you also get your healthy baby girl!

Welcome to the board! I'm so sorry for your loses

I had a friend who treated low progesterone with B6. I think she started out taking 50mg per day for a few months and it really helped lengthen out her LP. She had two miscarriages prior to taking the B6, and afterwards conceived a little girl.

Pink dust for everyone!!
