LTB, I have no clue, I enter, and it looks like that, then post and its all jumbled, but the next time I get on, its how I wrote it!Lol..I wanted to test twice a day, mid morning, then maybe after dh gets home(around 4-5pm), I was taking them once a day last cycle, and I think I missed the beginning of the surge, but I didnt really want to test 3-4 times a day..Last night I prayed for all of us..I do everynight but afterwards I layed in bed and went through what would be said, and who would be with me with milestones for this baby..how I would find the BFP waiting for me on the toilet,lol..the day we found out shes a girl, holding her in the hospital, then bringing her home where she belongs..I felt good when I went to sleep..BUT throughout me "visualizing"(sp?) all this, I had this nagging voice, right before my mind would announce its a girl, allitle voice would say "boy"..think thats bad?:(
Ponytails, I think you have to do what you need to do, whatever you feel comfortable with, there are ladies who would do more then 1 attempt if this is their last chance, and others wounldnt. Personally,if this was my last attempt, then I would add 1. I think PH is key to help those little girls get up there. You have tried all different timing methods and none have worked, so I dont think its a big deal to dtd through O. If you FR 30 min. prior to all attempts, then your lowering sperm count, and if you have a good way to keep low through the wait of O, and any attempts you have, then your still helping those girls. Maybe your 1 attempt a month isnt enough for you or dh..maybe it was always that second or third attempt that got you pregnant in the past? But if it was, dh has low count of his side this time, and you monitoring ph, so your still helping those girls. Like I said my good friend had 3 attempts, it was her 3rd month trying,and 1 attempt wasnt working for her. She kept ph low, hot showers for her and dh before each attempt, and they got their girl..more then one attempt doesnt always mean it will be aboy:) But again, your the only one who can decide this..do what feels right to you:)
Ok,so, heres whats been going on..last night I tried a "combo" of sorts or a "ph lowering cocktail",lol..I checked ph..6.38!, Did a whole app of rephresh..1 hour later it was 4.93,I took 2 sudafed and 3 cran pills then..1 hr after that 4.83! An hour and a half later it was back up to 5! So I put a whole app of replens in to see if it would stay down throughtout the night( while chking with the rephresh in, I had to pee everytime I checked, so I feel like I was getting rid of it litttle by little, Im hoping if I do this leading up to our attempt I can keep the whole app in,take sud.,and cran, and then some replens after attempt..)Soooo, when dh woke up this morning(4am) he was done, he didnt want to abstain anymore, it had been long enough,lol, so we dtd. I chked ph after it was at 5.75 combined..which is awesome for us(normally in the 7s), I basically did J&D 5 minutes after though b/c I had to pee so bad I had cramps, so I took more cran..5 hours later when I got up I checked it again, and it was at 5.84...so Im going to do the lime tampon today, if it works Ill know for this weekend, but since we dtd the deed so close to O, I could also end up with a 2-4 day cut off depending on when in the weekend I O...so should I stop this month? Or go for an O+12 attempt like I was planning? Thoughts?
