You ladies have been so helpful to me and I have just become a member of this board this month. I have a question and I am hoping that you wonderful ladies can help and also calm me down, cause I am stressing beyond belief.
So DH and I have not been sleeping and when I say not sleeping I mean we go to bed say around 10:30 or 11pm sometimes a little later if he has a hockey game that night but we both get up around 3ish every night. He sometimes goes back to sleep but is up in an hour or so and tosses and turns. I on the other hand will fall back to sleep only to wake up every hour until I finally get tired of tossing I just get up and stay up. Then of course at 8am I am DEAD tired
My sleeplessness I believe started in May after my MC and I got laid off. DH has been like this for as long as I can remember. Well he went to the doctor and Dr gave him a prescription for Ambien. He went and got the prescription filled and the pharmacist tells him to be careful because it is highly addictive and people on this are known to sleepwalk or sleepdrive!!! Um what??? ok I am not taking that. The other side effects of the drug are not so pleasant either. So my husband put something on facebook about taking Ambien and all of our friends said NO DON'T USE IT! Ok but they did recommend melatonin. Ok fine we go to the store get them and we both take one. I wouldn't say that it worked! I was still up at 3:30am.
So the next day I was doing research on melatonin (I know I should have looked it up before taking it) and it says can change a women's cycle and also changes O. In males hinders sperm mobility and also decreases sperm count. So of course I was like we are not taking anymore of those!!!!!!
So after this long story (sorry) here is my question. Can one pill mess up my cycle? Did I just mess everything up and how can I sleep?View Thread
Ok so now I have a question. I thought I knew my O signs but the more I read the more I am confused. I bought the OPK to try for this month because I used them March and it worked, but I got a positive and had no signs also the positive did not fit in the window I was getting from the calendar.
This month: I am on CD#9 and feel slight twinges of pain and feel sick all the time. I have any where between 30-32 day cycles so the test say to start testing on day 15 but I think that may be too late.View Thread
Thank you. The ectopic was diagnosed in May so I am now 3 cycles post MC, so we are cleared to start TTC again. This will be month one of trying. AF came on aug 7th, so I am going to try the ovulation kits again because that worked before.View Thread
