    Any Diet Details?
    2-3 cups of coffee with whole milk in the morning to tide me over until noon. Sometimes cheated when we would go out for breakfast with family. Eliminated snacking which was really difficult for me. Usually 2-3 light meals a day in an 8 hour window. Fasted for 16-18 hours. Didn’t count calories, protein, or fat intake. Didn’t want to obsess and sway blue. Purposely avoided thinking about limits by listening to my body. As time went on it got a lot easier, I felt fuller after eating smaller portions and was able to wait for longer periods of times between eating. I always waited until I was hungry to eat anything. I usually ate white rice, toast with peanut butter, bagels with low fat cream cheese, strawberries, cucumbers, yogurt, chicken, pasta, veggies.
    Any Diet Comments/Additional Info?
    Lots of Diet Coke

    WEIGHT AND EXERCISE
    What did you weigh/BMI do leading up to O?
    125lbs BMI 21 started at 165lbs BMI 28
    Any Weight/Exercise related additional info/comments?
    I started walking on the treadmill in May. Skipped all month of June as DH and I had birthdays. Cheated on diet a lot during month of June. July started hardcore on diet and exercise. Walked on the treadmill for an hour 6-7 days a week burning around 300 calories each walk.

    THINGS in VG and CONCEPTION DATE(CD) INFO
    pH Before Starting a Sway Program, if known
    Unknown
    Any VG potions used?
    No
    CM pH at attempt
    Unknown
    DH pH
    Unknown
    How many BD attempts did you make for the BFP cycle?
    1 attempt 48 hours after pos opk
    BD Dates according to Ovulation
    O day

    Any additional comments?
    I was tracking ovulation for 9 months prior to attempt. I would usually O around CD 13-16. My periods became lighter and shorter on diet. I normally have a lot of EWCM, but it was scant and creamy leading up to attempt. We actually weren’t trying the cycle we ended up conceiving. We used pull out 48 hours after pos opk. I believe being on diet so long and then adding exercise was delaying O, but never confirmed with temp. I got O pains night of pos opk so I assumed egg was gone by attempt but did pull out just in case. Two weeks later got my BFP!!

    THE DEED INFO
    DH Info about Swimmers
    Pull out method

    Did you do anything with Ions?
    Indoor Plants
    River on O day
    Painted nails pink
    Fans always on
    Lavender everything
    Moon Phase during conception?
    O day right on full moon
    Did you use any Old Wives Tales?
    Filled a box that my grandmother gave me with two pink onesies, a picture of me as a little girl, a hand written letter to my daughter with her name on it, and wooden spoon with a pink bow.

    Things that make me feel great about my sway:
    I was strict with diet and exercise. Lost 40lbs in 6 months and was at a lower weight than when we conceived our sons.

    Things that make me nervous about my sway:
    I cheated a lot on diet during the month of June and right before O that lead to BFP because the in laws came to visit. We did doggy style instead of missionary. I added in soy milk for DH during the 2ww when I ended up pregnant. I really wanted to give DH soy milk and OLE for our attempt. I feel like DH is programmed for blue. I also wanted to use an antihistamine like Zyrtec or Benadryl. I wanted to have 12 solid weeks of exercise before attempt, but only got in about 4 weeks before conceiving.

    Things worth mentioning:
    I tried to do a lot of visualization during the months before our attempt. I imagined our daughter being born and running around playing with her brothers. I prayed to God to bless our family with a baby girl or to take away my longing for her. I knew that we could still get blue even with a perfect sway. I accepted that I wanted to add to our family, regardless of the gender. I tried to have fun and let go.

    Thank you so much Atomic Sagebrush for your invaluable advice and all the time you spent answering my questions!! Thank you to all of the ladies here that I was able to learn so much information from!! What a journey this has been!! I’m currently 4 weeks pregnant and will update with gender as soon as we find out!!

    Update: Did the sneak peek snap at 6 weeks and got our results today: Baby Girl!! Cautiously optimistic since we all know sneak peek can be unreliable, but holding onto this like a tiny victory!! Will update back in a little over 3 weeks with NIPT results to confirm!!

    Thank you so much everyone!! I believe Iím 6 dpo now and we DTD a lot during fertile window which I know is very boy friendly. Iím hoping diet and having the flu week of O will offset the blue style BD, but only time will tell. The days before O I couldnít keep anything down and lost 6 lbs in 3 days so definitely in decline mode for O!! Praying for a healthy sticky bean!!

    but remember, I saw where those attempts were and you did NOT BD that much in the fertile window! Most of them were too early! FXFXFX!!

    Well we got our BFP yesterday!! 13-14 dpo I believe but hard to say really for sure when I ovulated. A little nervous that we were actually successful at catching the first egg after the miscarriage, had a lot of ewcm, and still feeling like BD was boy pattern since I was so set on getting pregnant quickly, but it is what it is and just a waiting game now. Still praying for pink but will be happy with a sticky bean. Will update back after nipt next month.
