Good luck on your TTC journey! Make sure you are already taking a prenatal vitamin or at least a multivitamin with lots of Folic Acid because its most important in the first few days/weeks before you even get that BFP (Big Fat Positive). If you have a smart phone you should download the app called My Days because, its just like looking up your ovulation days on here but after a few months it specializes to you a bit more, determines how long your cycle is and all that.
I just started temping this month and checking my cervical fluid too (different textures/consistencies tells you when you're most fertile), it doesn't fully make sense to me yet but I'm learning. I'm tracking that on FertilityFriend.com
Lots of baby dust to you my friend!!!
If you use BabyCenter.com you can add me on there too StoryGril88, those boards seem to move faster and I check them more often because I get more responses!View Thread
It's because there is a difference between a pill period and a natural period, your body has to get back on track after having the hormones regulated.
I had a period on May 4th while on the pill (was taking pill to jumpstart ovulation since I wasn't ovulating) and went off my pills on May 9th (in the middle of a pack). As of May 15th I started another period, which should be my natural period. So from there is where I would figure out my ovulation, etc.
I don't think your pregnant but you could take a test and see, just set the expectation that it's probably a false alarm. I know the TTC journey can be an emotional one. I'd make sure you're taking a prenatal or at least a vitamin with a good source of folic acid, it's good to take it for a month or two before you TTC so that it gets in your system, but its not necessary, just helps prep your body make sure it has what it needs to help a baby develop.
AF came 5/15 after going off my pill last Wednesday. I'm tracking on an app called My Days and just by adding it to my Google Calendar. Anyone else on CD1 (on Tuesday) and want to chat? I'm hoping to get pregnant in the next three months or so after miscarrying on Jan 13th.
