TTC Baby no.3 TIPS NEEDED

Mar 14th, 2018, 09:07 AM   #1
 
Hi Ladies,

We are going to start to properly ttc baby no.3 next month. I conceived my first 2 girls on first cycle (12 and 20months) and we dtd unprotected once during my fertile period this month and have to say was slightly dissapointed when I got a BFN this morning 2 days before AF, given that it happened so easily for us previously.

So for next cycle we will give it a proper go - is it better to DTD every other day during fertile period or should we start as soon as AF is over? Going to start taking the pregnacare TTC tablets too. I generally go to gym 2-3 times a week - should i still continue this even after I potentially conceive etc? My diet hasn't been great either so going to increase water intake and cut down on the sugar!

Any other tips from anyone would be welcomed!

Hi there. I think the general advice is did every other day is fine during the "fertile period" - in the days leading up to ovulation. I think you should be fine to continue a gym routine, particularly if you have been doing it before pregnancy. You might ease up on intensity once pregnant. Diet changes can also be better for long term health, so also a good thing to do.

You might be interested in getting a cycle tracking app, so you know where you are at in your cycle (as a guide) e.g. fertility friend, ovia, flo, glow etc.

Hi,
We’re also trying for baby 3, it’s been a year, we were only using an ovulation calculator with no success. This cycle we decided to use ovulation test strips and I ovulated a week earlier then the calculator estimated! So we may have been missing ovulation for the last year! So thought I would mention it! Good luck on your journey to baby 3 xxx

Thank you ladies. Yes I have the clue app, and I’ve just bought ovulation sticks off eBay. We conceived our first girl after dtd on day 5 of my 28day cycle. Surprise pregnancy. I was on the pill for 10 years after her and came off it and tried 3 months later and conceived on my first cycle I had the clearblue smiley face ovulation tests. My cycle is now 25-27 days. Fingers crossed this month although I’m more nervous this time around for some reason. Good luck driftawaybex, I’m on day 5 of my cycle so will be testing start of April xx
