    Just going for it?

    Iíve been getting ready for this sway for over 2 years now, and keep putting it off for various reasons, but mostly because I canít lose weight. Iím ready to just go for it. Any reassurance or last minute suggestions for me? 😅

    The things that I have been successful at for my sway are skipping breakfast, adding coffee and alcohol (not so hard to do lol) giving up red meat (Iím not sure if this is really a sway tactic, but I could take it or leave it and thought it would be better for less fat). Iíve been dairy free due to my autoimmune stuff for a long time. I also switched to diet soda.

    Even with all of these things, I have struggled to lose weight. I donít want to put off my sway any longer due to my age and also because the more I try to sway the worse it is for me mentally. I havenít gained weight, but Iíve stayed steady at a BMI of 23 since having my son in March 2019. I had my gallbladder out Oct. 2020, and my doctor said most people will put on 40lbs within a year of that surgery, so Iím thankful Iíve avoided that and take it as a slight success.

    We also plan to do one attempt. Weíve been doing q4 days, and Iím pretty sure I ovulate this weekend, so we will stick with this pattern for now. I loosely track my cycles, but havenít done OPKs because I tend to get obsessed and didnít want to overthink anything more than I already do. We technically attempted last month (was kind of spur of the moment) and I got a BFN. However my cycle was 31 days instead of the usual 34, so I may have been off on things. The plan is to officially start trying this month, and I just wanted some thoughts on my sorta-sway and any last minute suggestions would be great as well!

    Hey, as long as you are happy with that decision that's great! You aren't doing anything terribly blue friendly, you haven't gained weight, doing some fasting, and if you're ready to roll then by all means!

    I honestly see more sways ruined by people going absolutely berserk and control freaking everything in their lives down to the smallest detail (this is a HUGE factor for sways that produce opposites). So a person who is just calm, cool, collected, has made the changes that feel right for them and is ready to try, I am always in full support as long as they've not been doing things that are uber blue friendly, which it doesn't appear to me like you have. Good luck and pink dust headed your way!

    Go for it!! I think staving off weight gain after your gallbladder removal is basically the equivalent of losing weight.
    We are TTC girl too. I’m early in cycle #3 and we’re doing E4D too. Good luck!!

    Thank you all! Iím feeling a huge weight lifted off (no pun intended haha) just to not have to stress about swaying so much anymore and going for it. You all make me feel good about the decision.

    treens- Iím on cd 13, but I have longish cycles (usually 34 days) so it gets tricky. Iím pretty sure my LP is around 14 days and I just ovulate later than most people, but since Iím not certain we are sticking with every 4 days instead of trying for the perfect window and missing ovulation.

    Good luck to all of you ladies too!

    I have a question. So, we BD yesterday morning, and I always have leakage afterwards, but this time it didn't. I asked him if he actually released and he said he did, and I believe him. I got up and J&D about 5 minutes after BD and nothing came back out, and even later in the day nothing. We hadn't BD in 4-5 days, but he may be releasing on his own (I don't ask lol). Could he not have had anything come out?

    No, something came out (unless you have some reason to believe he's fibbing about this - it happens, rarely). Semen sometimes just doesn't liquefy as it normally does sometimes, it can be smaller amounts of semen (can still have the same number of sperm tho) and also sometimes it's deposited deeper and doesn't come out the same rate or same time as normal.

    DO NOT have another attempt, if that's what you're asking.

    Ok thanks! I just needed some reassurance, and I def donít want to ruin things by adding another attempt. I do believe heís being honest because heís really bad at lying and faking ANYTHING 😂, and also he hasnít shown any hesitancy with having another baby, so it would just be really weird.

    One more question, I read that I should continue with diet and keep blood sugar low during TWW, but should I also keep drinking alcohol? I donít want to do anything detrimental to the pregnancy if I do end up pregnant. Thanks so much!

    I leave that at your discretion. While it's unlikely that a fertilized egg could be at all negatively impacted (and many women, myself included, have had a drink during the 2ww not realizing we were pregnant) most people choose to stop drinking at O and I am fine with it either way.
