Hinesight is always 20/20, now that everything is over, I am confident that I had a 2 day cut off and I think I had the best attempt I could do being that I threw my attempt together as it was happening. I mean, this month was 'supposed' to be our practice month and we just decided to go for it the best we could. Now I am 2 days post ovulation. I feel like there is no way I got pregnant with a 2 day cut off, but it happens right? I mean people successfully use cut offs all the time and get pregnant. I know I am hoping for alot. Some version of the bible puts it 'Now faith is the assurance that what we hope for will come about and the certainty that what we cannot see exists'
If you happen to read this and got pregnant using a 2 day cut off with an opk let me know(and your girl/boy result!) oh or someone who got pregnant the first month trying after removing thier IUD. I'd love to know, but any one who wants to say anything or give thier story feel free, the two week wait to depressing. Why can't it just be a 2 hour wait? lol
Hi there! When I got pregnant with my first child, although I thought it would be a girl, I was thrilled it was a boy. I knew my husband, like most men wanted a boy so I felt so relieved to make him happy, my intention was to only have one, but as time has gone by, I really want a girl too! For a while I was so scared to try because I was afraid it might be a boy, but I think now, much from the help of reading all the forums here, I think I would be ok with two boys, The gender disappointment forum really helped me come to terms with that in advance(which I think is healthier than coming to terms with it in the moment) so if Liam gets a little brother that is ok, but, I desperately do want a girl too! I would be willing to have three to make it happen, and microsort the third, but if its a girl this time around, I'll stop at two! :) I'm getting my IUD out on monday 08/31/09, and I am going to wait one practice cycle (sept) then go full force into shettles and the girl diet, as best I can with my knowledge, I haven't found an 'exact' sample diet, just, eat more of this, less of this etc. so I am going to try my best. I have read the shettles book, and it seems promising. If you tried shettles and got what you wanted or didn't, please let me know :) Thanks for listening to me gab :) ............So, 4 months later, I threw shettle out the window and concentrated on the diet and supplements. I took soy for the month of dec and got pregnant the 1st round on soy! We are thrilled! Now to find out if its a girl or a boy....hummm..it's a boy! Ian was born 08/28/10 8 pds 7 ozs 20 3/4 inches
