Just checking in. Waiting for AF to arrive sometime today. No signs whatsoever, so possibly another messed up cycle. We did dtd on what I think was o day, but not to completion, dh was tired. I felt slightly disappointed, but strangely slightly relieved as well. I'd really like to lose 27 lbs before i gain a zillion.
As for mature eggs- biggest issue I've had since turning 40 is miscarriage. I never had any fertility issues until my 40s. Then early 40s, no problems getting pregnant, but 2 MMC, and 2 chemicals. Now at 45 I'm finding my cycle all over the place. I guess I'm not actively ttc, and often feel like maybe it's best I just quit. But then I continue my folic acid and n-acetyl just in case I should get pregnant and it might help to keep the pregnancy.
I did get a Ninja blender for Christmas from my mom, so maybe I'll finally start using that maca powder and maybe that'll help regulate my cycles. Also still taking the liquid fish oil as my cm is very little. If I see no change in the next month or so I guess I'll try the Vitex. I realize beggars can't be choosers, but I'd rather give birth late spring, summer, so I feel like I've got some wiggle room to figure things out.
Off topic- we don't vax here, except my 14 yo is currently getting some, very few, in order to not have to get a zillion at once when he joins the military after highschool. So anyway, we've had illness in the house since the weekend thanksgiving and my youngest tested positive for both HPIV and HIB over break. Scary stuff that HIB. She's on the mend finally, now my 16 yo is ill, debating whether to head to the dr or...
So ttc/tta I'm out until possible O around the 20th. I'm really just watching cm and o pains, have not yet gone the route of opks.
Which would be right around the end of your tww birthfree, I believe? Best wishes!
