Hi ladies, my name is Melinda! I've been lurking for a few days and figured I'd jump in and say hi smile.gif

This is my first month TTC and I have a few questions. I have 9 and 7 year old kids that I got pregnant with on the first try, but that was a very long time ago. Since then I've had a divorce, two IUDs and contracted HPV and had a procedure to remove it. I'm nervous that these things have effected my once very fertile state. I had the IUD removed about six months ago and at that time my OB said everything looked good to TTC soon. Since then my cycles have been pretty regular, but a little long, about 31-32 days. My LMP was on 4/8, we had sex on 4/14, 4/17 and 4/19 and I had EWCM on 4/21 (no sex that day tho), then had sex and some cramping (ovulation?) on 4/22. Today 4/24 I had white/clumpy CM. So it looks like today is my first day of the two week wait, and my period will be on 5/9.

I've done some reading on this subject but am in no way an expert. Does it seem like I'm doing this right to you ladies? If I'm doing this right the only thing I'd do differently next month is that I'd have sex on the day of the EWCM but I was a clutz and slipped on the stairs and hurt my knee that day so I wasn't in the best shape for sex lol.

Thanks and I look forward to chatting with you all smile.gif

Thank you so much :)

 

I ended up posting the same question on the TTC one thread and got a few replies there. I think I just wanted another set of eyes to look at what Im doing and see if Im missing something or misunderstanding something.


The two week wait is HARD!! lol
