   -I'm hoping we did enough to get our very much wanted little gir/little sister. Though i think we will have another boy due to dtd so close to ovulation. We started off doing gdc/su/tbm the 1st month,dropped gdc and su due to boys being on summer hols the 2nd month and did tbm for next 2 months but didnt get pg.

Star thats an amazing sway !! Try not to worry about the 1 day cut off, I'm pretty sure thats what we had, and when I went for my scan at 12weeks, baby ahead on dates suggesting I had conceived before I had even got a positive digital opk, so I could even have dtd on O day and we still got our dd, I truly believe now timing is the least important sway factor, hope you hear pink Love Ya!

Star-30 - what fantastic news!!!  Congratulations and best wishes for a happy and healthy PINK pregnancy.  I think you had a fantastic sway and timing is the least important factor.  Sounds like you had an amazing diet which is the most important factor.  I really hope to be guessing girl on your nub shot soon.  CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!  Hearts

That's an amazing sway, you MUST have your girl in there!! Hearts

Mrs I xxx  (was d4d - moved on from swaying pink) Cycle 11 - DS#3 Born 14th June 2011 and he is just fantastic!! BFP 11/12dpo
Heart my boys Baby Boy 2003, Baby Boy 2007   due Baby Bear Boy 20th June 2011 
 Heartbroken May'10 4w4dys Sad Flower Heartbroken July '10 5wks Sad Flower   1st non sway Cycle 11 Faint BFP on CD26!!! Pray 







Make a pregnancy ticker]       

As a parent, my boys are my world and my attempting to TTC pink was not a reflection on them or the love I have for them, I simply ached for a daughter to complete our family!!  However after 10 months I'm ready for my 3rd and final child NOW!!  I just want to be pregnant.  Swaying just didn't work for us, which makes me sad, but I'm glad we tried.  I'm scared I can't have a baby at all and that is the most important thing now, a healthy pregnancy and birth of my last child.

Cycle 11 BFP @ 11/12dpo, EDD 20th June 2011 - Stick baby, please!!
Our little angel babies, gone forever but loved and always part of our family ...
Cycle 8
BFP @ 14dpo, EDD 20th March 2011. Ended in m/c at 5 weeks.  Our little poppyseed.
Cycle 6 BFP @ 14dpo, EDD 21st January 2011.  Ended in m/c at 4wks4dys.  Our little crumb.
Onto Cycle 10 ... in the 2ww @ 30/08/10 - 2nd cycle after 2nd m/c.  Can't believe where this journey has taken me.  Never imagined I'd not be pg by now and have 2 mc's too.  I will sway this month because I cannot let go of the dream just yet.  However, I really want to be holding my baby in my arms next summer and time is running out.  Come on sticky bean, this is our month.  Let's hope it's a pink one!! Hearts

Cycle 8 ... to sway or not to sway .... ???  Maybe a TTC break is needed?!  Ended up doing a partial sway, it was all I could manage in the end! Ended in mc Heartbroken
 Cycle 6!?!  How can that be?  I fell so easily with both ds's.  I didn't expect to fall straight away, but to be on my 6th cycle is totally unexpected.  I think this will be our last month of swaying as I really want to be pregnant now and am worried we somehow aren't going to manage that.  16/04/10 Ended in mc Heartbroken
