Hey guys!! I've been stalking the board & haven't seen much for updates. You ladies are KILLING me!! Haha! Just wondering where you're all at. AF just ended for me, & if you've been following me, you'd know that it's WAY off from where it was back in October.
I'm getting REALLY impatient for May to start to see if we can ttc again. Hubby got released from workman's comp, he's just switching to unemployment now, & still searching searching searching for a job. It's tough, especially since May is coming up quick & that is the month we were shooting for to start ttc-ing again. So baby #3 is full blown on my mind all the time & it's....just...UGH!
I hope someone has a BFP this month!! What a perfect Easter surprise!! View Thread
Hi there, I know it can be hard ttc-ing and when you want something that bad, you want it NOW! It actually takes an average couple an average 3-6 months to conceive naturally. It took 8 with my 2nd son, and I don't have anything wrong with me or my DH, and we charted and timed perfectly every month. My best friend has a history of ovarian cycts and was even told by doctors that she can't have any babies. She has 4 now! All conceived naturally. Have you talked to your doctor about your cysts and ttc? Maybe you should make an appointment to discuss that if you haven't already. Maybe they can give you some insight on it. You seem to be doing everything you can to get this to happen. As hard as it is, all you need to do now is be patient.
I'm actually in my fertile window right now! Haha! After AF showed this cycle, DH & I had a talk about my bcp & we both agreed for me to be off of it and to truly cleanse out my body. I've done some research and between my bcp and another medication I'm on for anxiety, I feel that they're both doing more damage than good. This medication for anxiety I'm on has a higher percentage to have reverse affects than what it's actually prescribed for, and I just got put on it less than a year ago, and since then I've slowly noticed changes in myself that I know isn't me. And since I've been on bc for the past 4 years, I've had it switched SO many times because every bc in some way, screws up my body in many different ways and they can't find one that works with me. So we agreed to cleanse out my body of all medications I'm on except my daily vitamin (which I'm still taking prenatals) and my antibiotic. My dr went and did the ok for it. He said it is pretty possible that everything happening with my body and cycles could be between these 2 medications. So hopefully it's this and not PCOS or anything of the like. But, we're still not ttc at this point. This is the month where I got pregnant with both my boys, so I'm really steering clear on this one! No more November babies!! Haha! But if we were still ttc, this would be month 6.
Good luck this month ladies!!!
Zaysmama, how are you doing with your pregnancy? View Thread
Good luck to you canada2010! I hope this month will be your month! During my psychology class last semester, I read that a study in 2009 showed (on average) it takes an average woman 3 months to conceive. Some women it takes longer, others get pregnant just at the thought of a half naked man! Haha! Just try and keep it relaxed and fun and I'm sending you (and all you ladies) baby dust by the truck loads!!! View Thread
You didn't scare me. I know what PCOS is and what it does to a woman. I definitely look up to the women who have it. They are amazing. They are my role models whether I have PCOS, cysts, or anything else, or even if I have nothing and my body is just acting weird for no reason. I was going to go for an appointment today, but AF came today, 3 days early(well, by going what my app on my phone says my "average" cycle is 27 days). I'm going to have to wait til she leaves to get in. My cycles since September have been, 33, 15 (yes! 15!), 28, 26, 25, 31, and 24. September I was on bcp, went off of it in October when it was the end of the cycle for those pills, and January went back on it, and AF is STILL all over the place! It's annoying! They usually last 4 days, but a few times it's been more, like...nearing 7 days. This cycle and the cyle at the end of December, I've had spotting before AF shows up, and I NEVER have had spotting before. She just shows up full blown and leaves just as abruptly. My spotting in December lasted...2 days? I think? 3 at the most. This cycle I've been spotting all week, but nothing more than just when I wipe, so I haven't counted it as cycle day 1 until today. Even though we're not TTC-ing at this moment in time, because my cycles are so all over, even while on a bcp that's supposed to help regulate them, I'm keeping track!!View Thread
I'm so sorry you have gone through all of that! My heart goes out to you! Have they tested your hormones when you'd get pregnant? My sister-in-law had a miscarriage and when she got pregnant again, they put her on progesterone because she wasn't making enough to support the pregnancy. She has a son now, and about to have a daughter in March, and with each pregnancy, she has to be put on progesterone right away.View Thread
Awww, I loved that 1st moment of hearing the heart beat! It's like all the weight in the world is lifted off your shoulders!
Evalyne, I'm sorry it did end up as AF! Hopefully if she's cleaning out this cycle, you'll get that BFP next cycle!!
I don't know if I mentioned this before, but I start a part-time job tomorrow! I'm nervous/excited. It's a new experience, and it's at least SOMETHING to help us out at this time. They just told me to show up Saturday morning at 9 am. Never told me how long the day will be or anything. So I don't even know if I work any other day after that! Haha! But I can't wait for a work schedule. I need to make a Dr appointment. Even though, right now, we are not ttc until hopefully May (will be clear for Nov and DH should be able to work & find a new job by then) I feel like I need to get checked out. I'm worried I have something that's screwing up my body. My dr actually wants to test for PCOS or even just cysts. I've never had them before(cysts), but lately I've been having symptoms that kind of make me wonder if something is going on in that area. I hope not, but I don't know why I would have horrible pain in my uterus/ovary area that come out of no where and it can last for 5 minutes or a couple hours. DH is gone for the weekend, and I had pain hit me so hard today I felt like throwing up, and he called right in the middle of it and knew something was wrong and wanted me to go to the ER, but I don't have anybody here to help bring me, so I told him if it didn't go away after another hour, then I'd somehow make it to a clinic. He's starting to think I have cysts too or something.View Thread
Ok, ladies, this is off the subject of ttc but, I started something new and different: Blogging. I love writing and I don't mind sharing my life. I see blogging as a...journal of sorts, and I've been thinking about it for awhile. I am subscribed to a few different bloggers-ttc-ers, moms, moms-to-be, and it just peaked my interest and I started one. And if I end up not liking it, then I can just stop and delete it. I just started and their isn't a lot, but if you want to, go check it out!
I have 2, the actual blog page, and a fb one that has the actual blog page linked on it.
