We're going to try to remedy the vitamin D deficiency I have to see if that will help, but she wasn't very optimistic about that. I'm on week 2 of mega vitamin D and it hasn't done anything yet. Today is one of the worst days yet. I got over 10 hours of sleep and still had to work to get out of bed.

I'll be on today for updates, but my hands ache to much to do much in the way of responses.

Sorry to all the ladies who af is visiting.

Anjuli! My sister has fibro and the doctors think I might have it. My boss and a co-worker also have it, so I know how tired and painful it can be. You're in my prayers.

Not TTC, but not-not TTC...if that makes any sense!

I have been miserable, but thought I was just run down from chasing after my toddler. I definitely have good and bad days. I seem to be having some bad days more recently. I'm sorry that you are suffering too. You'll be in my prayers too.

Thank you ladies for the support. It really means a lot to me.

Hi, I checked into the forum last week, and I belong here, for now (DH is turned 30 this month! I do in July)... I remember this thread from our last time around. Can I get added? Thanks! Anyway...

It's our first cycle TTC. Last time we charted but this time my sleep is still a bit disrupted by DD. If we don't conceive this cycle I'll probably start charting again. I've learned so much about my body by being pregnant and being off the pill or something, or just being more in tune with myself, but I can totally tell now when I'm fertile. It's worked for avoiding, so I hope it works for TTC!

MrsD, you and I are cycle buddies. This is our 5th cycle too. (It's been just over four months though, b/c my cycles are on the shorter side. They seem to be getting longer, but I don't know if that's a good thing or not).

This is technically our 8th cycle, however, 2 months of that were skipped due to illness (flu's, colds, etc)...so 6 months of actively trying. *sigh*

to you all

Our turns WILL COME!!!

Well ladies...she came. 28 day cycle with spotting starting Jan 31st...usually it's 29-30 day cycle...

But we get to TRY this time!!!


We have been not very actively trying since Nov 09. We only actively tried Nov and Dec. So I guess the answer to the question is...this will be our third cycle.

wow there's alot of similarities. a few 7 months and a few 5 months... Baby dust to all!!!

Could you all take a look at my chart? I think it looks like AF is coming... several temp drops in a row. but since my cycles are so irregular it's hard to tell. Thanks ladies! :-)

Oh and MrsD & Jennifer sorry AF found you! Have fun next month and I'm crossing fingers for a March BFP for all of us!! :-)

Well, this is our first cycle TTC for real. DS is 10 months and I still nurse, so we used condoms except for a few "oopses." We thought we accidentally caught an egg a few months back, but did not. We were surprised at how sad we were and knew we were ready to TTC #2 soon...so here we are. Got what I think is a bfp today at 9 dpo but not celebrating just yet. It's very light and I know ICs are notorious for evaps. I saw the line come up at the 3 min mark though and I have never had an evap happen before like 10...so cautiously optimistic.

Congrats Mistral, I saw your new thread!!!

I'm really struggling with the chronic fatigue and muscle pain right now. Mornings are especially hard because I'm tired and hurt so badly. I just keep praying that it will get better. It's bad enough that I'm really starting to wonder if we should try to have another baby. I can't do much around the house. I kind of feel like it would be really selfish of me to bring another life into the world.

OK, pity party over.

Thank you, I'm excited but nervous, my blood test will hopefully make me feel more at ease.
