post #181 of 284

Re-Joining!!  I'm not "seriously" ttc, but I'm open to any new littles that may find my way!  I just had our 3rd baby a little over two weeks ago, we had an amazing homebirth with my amazing m/w Erika Urban, I am nurisng round' the clock, on demand during the day and all through the night.  My fertility returned at 12mo with my first, and 5mo with my second. I like posting here, as I like to have a place to document my cycles, while chatting with you all!

Hello Ladies..

i have been TTC for almost 2 yrs. It's been a frasturating journey. I don't usually get regular periods..which means I do not ovulate regularly so it's been that much harder for me. My last cycle I was supposed to get my period around Oct 14th--it still didn't come and its Dec 18--been testing a few times and i never got a positive. My doc put me on provera--and i just finished my last pill. SHe had given me 5 pills for 5 days to push my period. I am waiting of my period to show up but it still didnt--but i did just finish my last pill yesterday 12/17/10 so im hoping any day now i get it. I have clomid waiting for me!!! lol It seems liek my period just does not want to show up. now that I finally got a slight solution..(hopefully a solution)--my period has been later than ever!!! Anyone in the same boatgrouphug.gif ?

Samantha, what a bummer that we're on such different pregnancy cycles, LOL. It's doubtful that we'll ever get to be pregnant together!! That'd be super fun. It's good to see you here! orngbiggrin.gif

 

lifeguard, oooooooh! I'm excited for you! I do you hope you see a nice shiny new bfp tomorrow morning ! flowersforyou.gif

I'm sorry AMiG. I do know many women who suddenly O after provera though. And others who get AF a week or two later.

 

AFM- Does anyone here have experience with prolapse? I have a rectocele ( just now found at 20 months pp!!) and possibly a cystocele. I see a urogynecologist on Jan 3rd, but I'm wondering how this might effect my plans for future homebirth.

No that brought me to mine.
You go to "sharing", then "homepage setup", the address for your page should on that. (I'm pretty sure I'm remembering correctly how to do that) smile.gif

Samantha~ Welcome back to the group. Congrats on your new addition.

 

Bobbys~ Sorry about AF finding you.

amig - I took provera to get my 1stppaf - I think it started about 3 days after the last pill. I am currently on my fifth cycle of clomid (3rd ovulatory).

 

afm - I got the tiniest bit of pink cm when I checked my cervix this evening. I suspect I'll see a temp drop in the morning & af shortly after. We'll see what tomorrow brings but I'm not very hopeful right now - in fact I'm downright disappointed.

post #189 of 284

Okay - let's see if this works.

post #190 of 284

sorry lifeguard that takes me back to the first page. so yesterday and today my temp dropped. should i be expecting af? i am still puking, and still super smell. but still bfns. so maybe i didnt catch it and i am going to start soon. i kinda feel like it but dont have cramps like i thought i would. one way or another something has got to happen. people are really getting tired of getting their heads chewed off just to turn around and see me crying. i feel crazy. my cf is still creamy. and my os feels soft and achy. i wish i knew more about this stuff....

LionessMom~I'd try  and get a blood test done the one the measures the # of hcg to see if your pregnant, since you keep getting --- hpts.

post #192 of 284

post #193 of 284



Oddly enough, that just brings me to the beginning of the thread.

I just checked to be sure, you go to "sharing" (on the left side of the page), then "home page setup", your address is on there near the top of the page titled, "Your Charting Home Page Web Address:"

I just finished 6 weeks of Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy to correct some mild prolapse, severe scar tissue and zero muscle strength.  It was expensive, but totally worth it.  She gave me some exercises to do to strengthen the muscles, and I am supposed to do perennial massage every few days to work out the scar tissue from my last birth.  Before I couldn't walk anywhere for more than an hour without feeling serious 'heaviness' and discomfort and having to sit down - resisting the urge to hold myself in. I'm not back to 'normal' yet, but it is SO much better.  My midwives don't think it will be a problem at all, as long as I am working to build the muscles.  I try to remember to do the exercises every time I nurse.

 

 

 

Okay, so I am a list kind of person, and my list keeps of all the things I am doing keeps growing as I try to get my fertility back.  Short of night weaning, here's my list, what's yours?

Day weaned a month ago, but willing to try switching days and nights and trying to night wean again... we'll see how it goes.
Natural Progesterone Cream, 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off - 1 tsp alternated between underarms, breasts, belly, inner thighs.
Red Raspberry Leaf tea, twice a day.
Maca in my green smoothies every day
1 tbsp of fish oil a day (my homeopath told me to take 8-10 tbsps a day, I'm working up to it.)

Natural Fertility supplement with Maca, Vitex and some other stuff. 

 

What am I missing??? I'm willing to do ANYTHING short of weaning at this point.

post #195 of 284

lionessmom - I do seem to get a temp drop the day before af. Hope things become clear for you soon.

 

I'm not sure why my link is not working - I think I'm doing it right. Let's try one last time.

 

I barely slept at all last night - was too busy crying. I feel like such a fool for even allowing myself to get hopeful each month (in fact I TRY not to get hopeful). So I wasn't even able to properly temp this morning. Af is still not really here although this evening I definitely got some blood tinged cm so I'm sure it'll be here tomorrow. I see the doctor tomorrow as well - not really expecting him to say anything helpful.

 

On the upside we put in an offer on house today & it was accepted! It's a big property with house & barns. Lots of potential for all of our dreams.

post #196 of 284

Darn - it still doesn't want to work. Sorry I'm obviously inept & I don't have the patience to figure out the problem today.

I know right?! 
 

post #198 of 284

So I've got a question.  I was diagnosed with MTHFR (homozygous) before I ever even conceived dd, and never had a clot or anything.  It's a long story, but my fp noticed in a blood test that I had elevated homocysteine and decided to test.  So after several cycles ttc my dd, I tried baby aspirin.  Low and behold, a cycle or two later, we got a bfp!  I took it through out my pg, with my ob's blessing, and had no problems.  Fast forward, I forgot all about it until recently.  We're on cycle 9 now of ttc #2.  I started taking epo, and baby aspirin.  I didn't even think about breastfeeding, and now I'm not sure what to do?  Does anyone have any info or experience?  I don't want to harm dd, but think it could help ttc.  From what I've read, it's such a small dose that very little comes through the milk, and it PROBABLY won't affect dd.  But probably isn't good enough for me, I need to know she's safe if I take it.  Thanks, ladies!

 

 

ETA- I had a chem pregnancy cycle #3 this time around.  Of course, there's no way to know why...

Hi GreenMamma - I have both a rectocele and a cystocele too, they shouldn't affect your birth unless they are extreme, and even then. Keep planning for your homebirth!

 

AFM - I got a positive on my OPK today which is two CDs earlier than last month, so even if my cycle length is the same this month I'll have a longer LP! YAY! Wish me luck ladies I am off to do some baby dancing! Sheepish.gif

post #200 of 284

Yay! I'm so glad to find this thread! I have a 13 mo. nursling, and even though I would love to have another on the way, I dont' want to wean! He's still night nursing a bit, so I'm not sure when AF will return. About a month ago I started feeling crampy/crabby, etc. and have since thought that my period would start on multiple occasions, but nothing yet. I've been POAS like a mad woman, and thought I was going crazy until I found this forum! It's nice to know there are other women going through this too, especially since this is uncharted territory for me! I was thinking I should have bought stock in HPT's! I've finally convinced myself to wait until Christmas Eve to test one last time, and then just not test anymore for the next few months (at least as long as DS night nurses). That's easier said than done, though!

 

You guys are in my prayers for lots of BFPs in the next few weeks! Thanks for posting this thread, it's really helpful! jumpers.gif
