    Here we go again This will be cycle 3 for us trying.

    Currently cd 5 of a usually 28 day cycle.

    This month we will still try the every 72hr until after 0.

    I am still trying to cardio & walk as much as i can.
    Eating 2-3 meals a day no snacking- drinking black coffee 1-2 a day maybe 3 bud decaf- when i have alcohol i do it with supper about 5x week 1-2 drinks. going for the 60fat 60pro 1800 cal still breastfeeding 1x day.

    I am really trying to get my water intake up this month too to help overall and for my old eggs LOL I am almost 42. I really don't drink much at all of anything.

    QUESTION ATOMIC
    Should I start taking CoQ10 again or does that sway? I know you always say not to worry too much about age but I really think my age is "geriatric" LOL now what is your opinion on when to be more concerned due to age.
    Any other suggestions.

    We were going to wait last month and this month because we were thinking of traveling and these months wouldn't be ideal but we thought lets just go for it. Time is not on our hands. But we are 100% happy with our little boy who is almost 9 months so if it doesn't happen we still feel blessed.

    Next month we will possibly do the every 72 plus 1 attempt at positive OPK.

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    Don't get too hung up on the water. Drink to your level of thirst. Inundating yourself with liquids you don't want and don't need can be bad too because you're washing electrolytes from your system. The "drink lots of water" thing is a myth, based on very little, very poor quality science (basically an old textbook with no science behind it) https://www.mcgill.ca/oss/article/he...ion/water-myth

    coq10 doesn't hurt and may help (although it is VERY expensive and is not a magic bullet, to be sure.) If you can, 200 mg a day is great. If you can't, I would just let it go and not worry about it. Your call.

    I'm really glad you guys didn't skip a month - while you absolutely do still have every chance at still being fertile (the fact that you just conceived and had a baby easily indicates that your fertility is only slowly declining and is ~probably~ still good) you're right that time isn't our friend and it's best for you to conceive sooner rather than later.

    Thank you so much!

    Oh no I don't plan on drinking too much water. But in a day i drink maybe 1 glass sometimes none and 2-3 coffee and an a glass of wine or 2. So I just want to try get at least 4-8 cups in probably less than the amount i should have but i have to start someplace

    Oh good, I have some people who drink an insane amount of water based on no science whatsoever and it can end up causing issues if their electrolytes get wacky.

    The original plan was to do every 72 hours, but my DH is getting irritated with the ďrules and schedulingĒ so I donít really know. Iím going to try to stick to it the best we can while still maintaining peace. He just wants to do it every night or when we feel like it, so this is stressing him out. One good thing is that I do feel much more relaxed this cycle.

    GBOB sometimes you have to just roll with that. My husband would NOT in a zillion years go along with any scheduling of BD for any of our kids - when we were trying, we were trying, and that was THAT. But both with my failed Shettles opposite, AND with my successful sway for my DD, we ended up BD in the pattern that was what I wanted (cutoff with the Shettles opposite, and one attempt with DD) without any arguments or stress between the two of us. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

    Thanks Ladies!!
    My daughter and I have been battling a stomach bug the past few days, and my husband refuses to get near me as to not catch it. So luck might be on my side with only getting one attempt in LOL..hopefully before I Ovulate.

    I like your way Treens hahah
