    Need help trying to conceive Boy

    Hello atomic,

    So I have tried to conceive for two cycles now and so far nothing. I don't understand what's happening, I conceived on the first try with my other pregnancies.

    I have a 27 day cycle and last month we bd cd 7, 9, 12, 13 (2 times). I couldn't continue the bd because I developed a UTI. But my period arrived right on time on cd 27.

    The only thing I noticed were cramps on 10dpo which I haven't experienced before, I thought it was implantation but it wasn't.

    I had a positive opk on cd13. My diet is good and I haven't missed taking the supplements too.

    What can I do differently this month. I am on cd 7.


    Thanks atomic.

    Two cycles is in normal range though! Don't worry yet!

    The cramps before ovulation are normal. Some of us get those regularly. I think you ovulated later than CD 10 because of when your period came.

    I would be inclined to do exactly what you did the last time! That was a good attempt, I suspect if you'd been able to have attempts CD 14 as well you would have conceived (provided it was a good egg and all, some of them aren't).

    Hello atomic,

    So far we've been able to have attempts on cd 6, 7, 9, 12 (2times), 13, 14 (today). I had a positive opk on cd12 and by cd 13 it had turned negative.

    Do we need to add another attempt tomorrow cd15, or should we go every other day, that is cd 16, 18 and 20?

    Thanks for your help.

    I would probably have suggested a CD 15 attempt but no biggie if it didn't happen. Every other day from now on at least till CD 20 like you say.

    Hello atomic, so I'm out again. Cd 2 for me. I really think something is wrong. I don't even know if I am actually ovulating. I want to do an ultrasound this month to find out.

    I had bd cd12, 13, 14, 15 17. Positive opk on cd 13. AF arrived on cd26.

    Your period coming when it "should" (CD 26) means you are all but certainly ovulating.

    I think you need to start attempts sooner (as per what we already discussed). I think you just had a bad break in not being able to have sex CD 10/11. If possible this upcoming month I'd have attempts sooner, in case you ovulate CD 12/13 or early on 14.

    Thank you Atomic, I would try to start earlier this month. The only problem is dh. I think the stress of ttc is getting to him. I am not sure he will be able to have a lot of attempts. When so you suggest we start having sex? I'm on cd3 now. Thanks for your help.

    Atomic, I also wonder if stress is affecting my ability to conceive. I started a new job the month I started ttc. It wasn't expected and since then the job has been very stressful for me. I am considering taking a week off work after ovulation this month. Do you think that would help?
