The birthing center I wanted in Chino said they would work with me too



however it is 5200 by birth and even if they extended my payments it would be more a month than i could do :(



so I found a doula that I hope will keep the hospital from being so anti natural labor to me

Your cycle starts the first day of your period. Making that CD1.
The "cycle days" continue through the month. So even if your period only lasts 4 days, the fifth day is still CD5.



So the 5th day after your period began, start taking your Clomid. That would be CD5, and continue until the 9th day after your period began. That would be CD9.



The CD# continues to add up throughout the month (CD28, CD30, etc. depending on your cycle) and begins again on the first day of your next period.



Not a dumb question at all. :)



Although the OPK question, I'm not certain.

Hi, mamas! Haven't really been active on BG in years but here I am again! DH and I were just married (May 3rd). We've debated pretty much since we met whether or not to have another baby since we already have 3 between us. We did the deed and after noticing it was around the time I should have O'd I started wondering, Then seeing symptoms (I think) and we got SO excited. So our minds were made up! If we don't get a BFP this month then we are officially TTC.



I'm not sure it will be easy. I'm completely new to TTC and my cycles are very irregular. I'm doing lots of research so if anyone has any advice that would be great! :)

I'm 5dpo and I have 6 pregnancy tests hidden in my make up case ... I'm trying so hard to resist the urge to test! AF should be due on the 25th so I figure I should be clear to test around the 20th! I just have to hold out for four more days! lol
