    Default 4 months till TTC

    Ok so we are just a little over 4 months until we start TTC again! Let me say that I am so nervous that this isn't going to work. We struggled for 3 years to get pregnant with my daughter. I was DX with PCOS. I will head straight to my RE when we start in August. I will make an apt in July to set up whats going to happen. Last time I was on Femara and Metformin and I got pregnant the first month. Needless to say I want it to happen that fast and I know I will probably be bummed if it doesn't.

    Anyways. I am trying to figure out if I should even temp and do OPKs for the next few months or not? I don't know if it would even be helpful since I will be getting treatment right off the bat. I have never ovulated that I know of unless I have been on meds. I am in the process of losing weight in hopes that it will help. What do you ladies think I should do? Should I start temping and doing OPKs or should I just not even worry about that stuff since we will being doing treatment right away in August.

    I'd probably start charting just so that your RE has an idea of what's going on with your cycles before you get there and can put a good game plan into action so you can get that quick BFP. That's just me tho GL hun

    I agree with starting to chart now. I saw a new OB in Dec and had three months of charting with me that he looked at and said ovulation is not the problem and sent us to a new RE. I only did opks one of those months to confirm that I was ovulating. Keep up the good work on the weight lose and try to enjoy these last months before ttc again. Good luck!

    I chart a teeny bit while I'm waiting to TTC again(May and then September) I just do cycle days and +/- OPK with O symptoms. I also start decreasing my caffeine about a month before since I'm a soda junky and start up with Fertilitea about 6 weeks before IUI.

    When we TTC'ed #2, I never O'ed, never had a cycle, never temped or anything because I know my body just doesn't work that way. We waited 3 months after I stopped BFing DS1 (just to see what would happen), and when I hadn't gotten AF, I made the appt with the RE. I got pregnant on my 3rd IUI cycle.

    Good luck!!! We might be TTC this summer too
