Attached2Elijah, welcome! I think you were on the soy thread? I'm not there anymore b/c my cycle with soy was a disaster with O on CD30.
lilmom, so sad that you're not close to anyone who does acupuncture when you know that worked for you before. I looked into it, and our insurance covers some of the cost of acupuncture, but only if a doctor refers me. Which they won't before I hit 1 year anyway, so I guess I just need to wait it out for the next 3 months.
LessTraveledBy, I also feel very lucky with our son. He is an amazing and sweet person (though often really stubborn, haha ), and I love him to bits. I really want to give him a sibling b/c he adores other children. It used to be just older children, but he stroked a newborn baby's head at playgroup a few weeks ago, then when we were at a restaurant last week, he tried to follow a family who was leaving with their baby.
scarletjane, I can't really call myself ambivalent, but I've kind of just let go for the next 3 months until we are allowed to finally get help. There's nothing I can do about anything until a doctor will look at me, which no one will for 3 months, so I'm trying not to worry and obsess about things out of my control. I'm still charting and doing OPKs and such (just got a delivery of them today, yay!). I'm not stupid, after all. We'd never get any sort of decent timing without tracking my wacky, unpredictable cycles.
Beloved, hoping this cycle is the one for you.
As for me, CD19 and my body feels like it's getting more fertile. Also getting O pain (usually happens 2 days before O, coinciding with a + OPK), though my OPK today barely had a 2nd line. I'm just hoping to O in the next week. And I got my hair done today, so I feel pretty again.
Thinking about weight. . . A few people have mentioned getting to the weight they had when getting pregnant before. Maybe each woman has an ideal weight balance for getting pregnant that's different from that of other women. Maybe average, maybe heavier, maybe lighter. Each our own magic number, you know? I was very slender when I got pregnant with my son (BMI on the borderline between normal and underweight, though I do have small bones), then gained a lot of weight during pregnancy. It's been slowly coming off since giving birth, and I think I'm almost back to what I was then. We don't have a scale, so I'm not sure, though. I want to believe if I reach my magic number, I will get pregnant. Just a little hope I'm holding onto. And I'm ignoring the fact that my cycles weren't so long before.
