I wouldnt do Shettles, in the past few years they have pretty much realized it doesnt work...Im trying the O+12 because I know then that Im going to O, I just have to leanr my body to see if I can narrow it down, to When I o,lol.."Jump&Dump, I dont really get either, I guess the thinking behind it is, if we make our bodies more girl friendly then as soon as they get in there they start working there way up..the boys however cant get around in an acidic enviroment, so by "dumping", your letting go of the ones who cant survive, I think I would wait about 10-15 min..after dtd before doing J&D, if your doing that.."bd-cut off" means they are doing a 3 day cut off, you track when your going to O, after a few cycles you know when it should happen, and you dtd about 3 days before O, then abstain for the rest and keep your ph low through O, 'm not doing this, b/c I worry about keeping my ph low enough for about 6 days(dtd 3 days b4 O, then after the egg has expired, or fertilized)..O+12 is when you abstain for yes, over 7 days, but any higher is better.. You also abstain leading up to the cut-off method as well.
As far as eating breakfast, its hard not too, since having my boys, if I dont eat within a few hours of being up, I start feeling sick, then whole goal with not eating breakfast is to keep your blood sugar low, so I feel like, the days leading up to O, I will try and wait as long as possible, but also, Im going to skip dinner or have something really light, so my blood sugar dosent go up..Im on the opposite as you though Jadis, Im heavy:(. But as long as you eat right, and not alot of sweets or anything late or right beofre your attemot, you should be good with blood sugar! Its weird, with my boys when I knew I was going to start trying, I would have dreams..but this time, even though I want to dream, its not happening, I dont know if thats the stress or what!
Are you girls following the moon signs, or Ions? Jadis..I hope that clarified some things for you..hopefully I didnt confuse you more
