post #61 of 234
Hello chuord- nice to see you!!
I'm waiting for O. Booked a doctors appointment for a few weeks, I figured TTC 8 months might need some help.
How are things with you? Lovely to see your post :-)

Thanks Oxford! I know what you mean, I'm coming up to 6 months - although not 'actively' trying the first couple... Here's hoping this is your month, or it's an easy quick hormonal fix.
Nothing very exciting here, been a little slack 😳 and I'm trying to get motivated to dash around and catch up on jobs!

AF is due today. She's not here yet and still negative test. I'm assuming she's going to be late because my cycles are messed up, still not sure how many days my cycle is going to be, or even when I O'ed. So frustrating. I ordered some FertiliTea last night and some vitex capsules. Maybe that will help my cycle get regulated and help my CM to become more fertile. It couldn't hurt to try anyway, I read a lot of good reviews about the tea.

I was doing a little bit of research on Vitex, after I seen that someone had posted about it on here. There are a lot of different opinions on it. Some say good things, others say bad things. One article said absolutely not to take it during pregnancy, then another article was from a woman that had been taking it throughout her entire pregnancy, one time, then the second time she got pregnant, she started to bleed like she was having a miscarriage, and she started taking it again, and she went on to have a healthy birth...What are your feelings on this Vitex?  Do you believe it to be a good thing to try?  I too have irregular cycles.  I'm not even positive I ovulated when the opk said I did, because it was so early, so Im not sure if I should start counting DPO's yet!  Any suggestions, greatly welcome.  I'm having a rough time with this whole ttc. My first child was a great surprise, def. was not trying to get pregnant, the same with the other two I lost, little angels!  Now that I am actually TRYING, I cant seem to make it happen!

I was just going to use it before I'm pregnant, and not during pregnancy. There are a lot of herbs that are not good during pregnancy, but if it will help me to regulate my cycles or help with ovulation then I'm willing to give it a try, and then stop either in my TWW (If I know I ovulated) or if I get a + hpt. The tea also has vitex and red raspberry leaf in it. I also have red raspberry leaf capsules. I had AF from April 8th - 12th and now there's no sign of her. I hope she comes soon so I can start over again. I read a lot of good reviews of the FertiliTea on Amazon, there's a lot of women who have PCOS or just irregular cycles and they started drinking the tea and it helped regulate their cycles. It can't hurt to try!

My first son was a big surprise to me too. I kind of had baby fever, but me and my ex weren't trying as we hadn't been together for that long. I now have a very energetic almost 4 year old haha! I'm hoping that my body is just still regulating after being on Mirena for 4 years. This is only my second month of TTC. Maybe I'll get lucky next month. I hope so.

I hope you can figure out your cycles! It's so different actually TTC after you've already gotten pregnant once by surprise.

Yes, it is...i wasn't assuming you were going to use it if pregnant. I was just wondering about it in general. After reading such different reviews on it, I was wondering if you could tell me different. Good luck

post #72 of 234

Well it seems as though AF is finally on her way. I'm hoping if not tonight then by tomorrow, so I can start over again! I'm cramping now and there was a little red spotting on my cervix. Hopefully at least in the next two days!

Fawn, sorry to hear about AF. I know what you mean about surprise babies - my first was a total surprise, and the next 2 were "not trying, not avoiding" babies. TTC is hard but I've learned so much about my body and how it works. I'm grateful for that. I'm in the part of the TWW where it is too early too test, and I just want to know. Actually, a part of me wants to know, and a part of me just wants to be happy that I might be. I'm getting antsy. I know I'm going to cry if AF comes. I'm already paranoid, expecting to see blood in my underwear every time I pee. It's so different doing this after a loss, I keep expecting the worst.

Aw, I can't even imagine how different it is after a loss. Hugs mama! And FX for this cycle. I fully expected AF to be here this AM but not yet. Hurry up AF! I slept with a pad on last night just in case cause I've been crampy and just blah period feeling, and nothing yet. 

 

I feel like I've learned more about my  body in the last two months since taking my IUD out than my whole life! It's really interesting. I love The Beautiful Cervix project website, and I was using that as almost a "reference" at first, but I've really gotten to know how my body works a little better, even if it's still wonky right now.

Wheeeeere oh wheeeeere has my period gone?

 

 

I'm just gong to start singing from now on, to curb my utter frustration! 1 day late, thought she was on her way, but nope! Still negative hpt. What is going on body!?

2dpo...feeling tired and white lotion like discharge.somebody tell me what's going on.

Fawnanddoe--Any sign of her this morning???? Best of luck managing your anxiety--I know how tough that can be. I've never taken anything but SSRIs but I imagine it must be tough to drop one of your meds like that. 

 

I posted this on the one thread, but I got a bfp yesterday. It was so weird--I had gotten several shadows on cheap tests that I thought were evaps because the online reviews said these were prone to them. When my temp was still up yesterday morning (about 11 dpo, I think--I usually have a 9-10 day luteal phase) I didn't know what to think so got a FRER. Turns out the cheapo tests were accurate, but so crappy the lines looked like evaps! The line on the FRER was very bright and popped up almost immediately. I'm kind of freaking out--I liked the idea of a second child in theory but now that it's a (maybe) reality it's like, "do I really want to go through all this again?" It took me SO LONG to feel like myself again after DD, mostly because of sleep issues. But now that it's sunk in I'm starting to feel really excited. I have to remind myself that we don't know how sticky this one is yet. Oi.

Way too early to say!

Some people claim symptoms immediately after conception, but realistically you aren't going to have any whatsoever until after implantation (between 5 and 10 DPO) because your body has no way of knowing you are pregnant until implantation.

No sign! I'm trying to mask my frustration, and I'm drinking a lot of stress relief tea and I'm about to start drinking some CALM, but it's just so confusing. My period in April was so normal, and I spotted "on time" prior after IUD removal, so I thought I would be good to go, but she's taking her time. I really hope she comes soon! Right now I have zero insurance and basically have to wait until I'm pregnant to get on the medicaid here, then see a maternal fetal specialist (I have other issues I need to be on the lookout for. I got dx with melanoma when I was 36 weeks pregnant in 2009, so I need to still be watched for that, and I got a chronic pain disorder from the surgeries. I'm off all medication now, but I don't know how my body will react to pregnancy this time, so I need a specialist). 

 

Congrats on your bfp! And sending sticky vibes your way. I have the same thoughts as you sometimes, I get nervous or scared or think do I really want to do this all over again? Because it's been almost 4 years since I did it, and it was freaking hard! But I know that this time will be different, and at the end of the day I will one day have a beautiful baby that I will love <3 Hugs!
