    Just thought I'd post my experience with lunaception and the success I had with it!

    So it's a long story, but before we started TTC baby #3 I found gender dreaming and started swaying. We tried for 4 months with no success - 3 of which I was temping so I knew exactly when ovulation was occurring. I started to notice that I was ovulating on CD 21-22 of a 28 day cycle so pregnancy was going to be very unlikely with that short of a LP. There were many months where I totally felt the early signs of pregnancy but then AF happened. I started to wonder after the fact if I might of had a few chemicals because I easily became pregnant with both boys. My doctor basically told us that if we wanted another we'd have to go see a fertility specialist as I'd probably need clomid or some other drug to help fix things. I was interested in using Soy Iso as I'd heard it can help, same with Vitex.. but was very hesitant knowing that I had a specialist appt. coming up and I wanted my body hormones to be as "normal" as possible so they truly knew what they were dealing with. I had heard a few things about lunaception and figured why not try it - I knew it was a complete shot in the dark but figured it was "natural" so it couldn't hurt. Here's what we did..

    We slept in a pitch black room from CD1-13, and I mean dark.. we taped all the cracks around our window with garbage bags and made sure no light was coming in anywhere. On CD14 I turned on a relatively bright nightlight next to my side of the bed and slept with it on until CD17. From CD17-AF or BFP we made the room pitch black again. The day following the night light coming on (CD14) I could feel my body preparing itself to O. Late CD17, or super early CD18 I O'd - roughly 5 days earlier than I had any other month. I was convinced without a doubt that it HAD to be the lunaception (or else God, because I was praying like crazy to not have to see a specialist). That month we got our BFP and #3 is due December, 2013! I am so beyond shocked it actually worked. Looking back with both my DS's we lived in a different house with our bedroom letting in full moonlight every night as we had no drapes for those 2-3 years. Once we moved to our current house, we were so inconsistent with leaving the drapes open or not. The month before we got our BFP we had the curtains open for the entire month. I looked back at the moon cycles and noticed I actually O'd on the full moon that month... maybe just a coincidence, but something worth noting!

    I'd definitely recommend giving it a shot if you're wanting to try and move O without any medical intervention. You never know, it might actually get your that BFP

    Interesting. It is too late for me now anyway, but I was thinking about quitting BCP a little later, so Ibcokd concieve n new moon. I thought it did not mean too much.
    I usually sleep with drapes down. But here is te thing, up here north, the sun does not set until midnight and some places it oes not even set at all, this happensn summer. In winters we ont see te un too much, like 6-8 hours a day maybe. I dont know if my body registers the moonlight in summer at all, bcz we only see the moon between midnight and 2 o clock

    There is no guarantee though because many times your ovulation will just wait till it "wants" to come anyway.

    I agree that it may potentially be beneficial for anyone who lives in the far north to TTC when it's light all day. My sister just conceived a baby girl in Alaska and she conceived her in summertime, when it was light all the time. We just don't KNOW how any of this may work.

    Okay, so help me get technical with this. And swaying boy, for reference.

    Is it best to really be in line with the moon? And if so, should I attempt to make my ovulation happen earlier?

    I am predicted to ovulate on the 28th, but the full moon is the 21st. Should I attempt to ovulate a week early? That would mean ovulation on cd8, is that even possible? Or should I just stimulate the full moon around my cd14-16 and ignore the moon until it lines up a little more closely?

    I'm on cycle 4 of ttc blue. So I don't want to do anything too crazy and mess up my sway, and I'm in a little bit of a hurry (my midwife goes on holiday during the summer, so if I get pregnant, I might have to look elsewhere).

    And then next month, if I keep it the same and it doesn't change LP, should I try to mimic full moon early, like on cd 11-13?

    This is interesting, I wish I learned about this months ago because I would have started getting my body prepared before ttc.

    I find this very interesting, but there is no way my DH would let me sleep with a light on.
    Rabbitmama- cd8 seems very early to me, but I'm no expert.

    From what I have read, you don't need to sleep with the lights completely on. Just a hallway light, or keeping the windows open.

    We already sleep in almost complete darkness, but I could probably improve a little bit.

    We don't know what is best, it's just a theory.

    I think you're best off just turning on the light when you are due to ovulate and not worrying about the moon otherwise. I think it's the light that is doing something and your body doesn't know what the moon is doing.

    CD 8 is too early. If this works it will mess up your body clock to do that. I think you should stick to using the light to simulate moonlight when you're due to ovulate.

    Atmoic, Does lunaception "sway" a certain way? I just did it in hopes it would help with ovulation because we really needed to get a BFP after 5 months of nothing. I feel like I've read people saying that full moon or whatever sways blue.. so does that mean using a night light sways blue, or would that maybe sway pink like you were suggesting (with watching TV when you conceived your DD) because it's artificial light? I still O'd late compared to normal and maybe it was all coincidence, but I slept with the light on when I O'd. Just curious!
