AF- aunt flow
Bd- baby dance aka sex
Cd- cycle day
Dpo- days past ovulation

Big fat positive and a bfn is a big fat negative. So let's hope we all see BFP soon :)

MP- Missed Period

My husband and I are TTC, however, he got stationed in Korea :( He came home im September and we tried for 3 1/2 weeks with negative results. Does anyone know if I started taking prenatal vitamins now will that help our chances in May when he gets home? We really are trying to do all we can. Also, I found out I have endometriosis, which can lower my fertility. Though I had the surgery to remove 98% of the scar tissue, I understand it can come back. Any help, advice, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

It's seems we have the same cycle length and are in that waiting period, I'm 5 days away from my period and the suspense is starting to build. This is attempt 1 for me.
