    Happy Serious pink sway after 3 beautiful boys💗

    Hi everyone,
    After trawling this site and itís vast wealth of information (and being totally in awe of Atomicís knowledge)for months, Iíve finally purchased a sway plan and am super excited to get started TTC a girl.

    My background:

    DS1- born in 2009. I was 19 and not trying but not preventing. Conceived within a couple of months of meeting DH.

    DS2- born in 2014. I had actually dabbled in a couple of types of birth control prior to TTC. The injection and also birth control pill. It took me around 8-9 months to conceive but I believe thatís down to not watching/ being aware of my cycles and BD at the wrong times and possibly the birth control taking a while to leave my system completely.

    2018- I had a copper IUD which I decided to remove for another baby. Got pregnant the month after removing it but sadly that ended in an early miscarriage at around 6-7 weeks.

    DS3- Born 2019, conceived just weeks after the miscarriage.

    2020- had a copper IUD fail and ended up pregnant and getting the IUD removed immediately after finding out. Unfortunately that one ended up being ectopic (I think it may have been down to conceiving with the IUD in place, Iíve heard of this upping the risk. I had to have my right tube removed.

    Here we are a few months after my ectopic and Iím ready to put my all into a sway and cross my fingers for a wee princess!

    My lifestyle:
    I have always been a very keen eater. Iím not a fan of skipping meals at all and I would have a good breakfast everyday- often omelettes or muesli and some coffee.
    Iíve never been much of a drinker- suppose Iíd say Iíd have alcohol maybe once or twice a month if even that.
    Iíd exercise moderately to keep weight off but it would be mostly weights and only maybe 3 times a week at the gym with a tiny bit of cardio as a warm up. Occasionally would walk. Iíve always had a fairly curvy figure but still quite muscular too. To be honest I think I have to stay rather active to counteract all the food I like to eat.
    I believe Iíve probably had fairly high testosterone levels, I think having a bunch of carefree boys has made me feel the need to control a lot of things in my life to keep us all moving in the right direction if that makes sense. Especially because DH is also a pretty laid back type of guy. I always feel the need to take the reigns on everything or it wonít get done. Also Iíve worked in competitive environments (e.g. in sales) and Iíd totally get caught up in wanting this win.
    Iíd say my maternal health was pretty good, always been big on getting enough sleep, eating a nutrient dense diet (Keto before DS3 so very little carbs and ALOT of fat and protein!), not a smoker, no drugs and very little alcohol and overall a pretty comfortable life- all seems very blue to me!

    What Iím doing now:
    Iíve started LE diet, keeping my calories as low as possible.
    Skipping breakfast daily and having only coffee before lunch.
    Ditched the weights at the gym and am aiming for one hour of intense cardio 5-6 days per week.
    Having a glass of wine at night (most nights).
    Attempting to be less of a control freak, Iím finding that as I get older Iíve naturally been less controlling, itís actually very freeing and Iím much happier for that
    Thatís all I can think of until I receive my personalised sway plan.

    Sorry for the really long intro, I find reading other peopleís really interesting so figured a bit more info canít hurt hehe. Happy to be here on this journey with you all!

    Hi Atomic, I’ve started using cheapie OPK’s, and my O day was supposed to be yesterday (CD15 according to Flo app, usually I’m pretty sure it’s quite regular, but then again I don’t usually use OPKs...) but it doesn’t seem to be anywhere in sight! I think it’s possible that it came earlier this month as I remember seeing a bit of creamy borderline EWCM a few days prior but that would’ve only been around cycle day 12, unfortunately I hadn’t yet started using OPKs so can’t say for sure. AAAANYWAY, is it normal to O earlier once you start swaying girl? I’m losing weight relatively quickly and I have much less CM throughout the month (usually have a lot, sorry TMI) so my body really seems to be responding. I’m just scared I might have lost O completely! Should I keep using OPK’s this month in case it’s actually running late?

    Yes it is totally normal to see changes in your cycle when swaying, and we take that as a good sign generally speaking. But as long as your OPK are cheap, there's no harm in continuing with them just to be sure

    What is your BMI now?

    I thought youíd say that, Iíll keep on doing the OPKís to try work out whatís going on

    BMI is 23- Iíve lost just over a kg in the last week. Iíve been eating around 1800 calories per day on LE/vegetarian but I think Iíll try more for 1500 this week as what Iíve lost is just around my middle and usually after I lose weight around there Iíll plateau a bit (Iíve been fluctuating in weight for the past couple years)but find it quite hard to go below 70kg which is where I am now.

    If weight is coming off just stay at the same calorie intake. If you're losing weight, you don't need to cut back. If you DO end up plateauing, then we can cut back at that time.

    Ok cool, thanks for the advice- will stick where I am! Also, got positive OPK yesterday so looks as though O has just shuffled back a couple of days

    EDIT: looking at my OPKs from yesterday and today now I donít know that it actually is truly positive as the line is dark but not AS dark as the control line. I will keep testing daily. First time OPK user, can you tell?, have added a pic, top is yesterdayís and bottom is todayís
