Waiting to O...

Hey ladies! I thought I would start up a new waiting to o thread since the last one has been around a really long time...

I'm on my 4th cycle PP, and CD14. My last two cycles were 40 days and 50 days, so not the brightest outlook. Lots of stress lately so I'm trying to take things one day at a time, and maybe focus on my diet a little.

Anything new different with anyone else waiting to o?

CD 5 here and 2nd cycle of trying. We have this cycle and next to get pregnant or we'll have to put it off for a year. I did get OPKs for this cycle. Not sure when to start using them though.
At least the weather has cooled off a bit, when I *think* I Od last month it was over 100 degrees out and we don't have a/c. Being close was the last thing on my mind.

That looks interesting! I feel like I need to do something to kickstart my cycle here. I have a doctor's appointment next Wednesday and I'm hoping to get some suggestions or maybe some bloodwork, just to see if it's my system still adjusting or if I have more going on. PCOS runs in the family.

Prometrium works great for starting a cycle. I have PCOS and am on Metformin. You can get tested for it on CD3.

Re: Waiting to O...

Hi! looks like I'll be back here for our 4th cycle of trying tested bfn at 13 dpo today, so AF should be here today or tomorrow. That'll put my O sometime around Columbus Day wknd, which we'll be spending at my parents' house... sigh.... I find it so hard to re-adjust my mindset at the beginning of each cycle to more waiting, but at least waiting to O is just kind of boring, it's not totally excruciating like the 2WW is, lol!

Re: Waiting to O...

CD5 for me today. After my 40 & 50 day cycles, I just had a 15 day cycle. I'm hoping both the doctor's appointment I have Wednesday & a lessening of stress within the next few weeks will help things. Only problem is that there's a good chance we're going to move within 6 months, and I'll have to give up my job and I don't know whether I want to be job searching while preggers. But I also don't want to stop trying, since with all the trouble I'm having lately I just want to take any chance I can get!
