Hello, all! I am officially officially TTC as of today. In just an hour, I'll have my IUD taken out. It's non-hormonal and so my Dr. told me I could concieve the night it was taken out. But...I'm not really counting on that.
DS is 15 mos and nursing ... well, I don't think I can really count. Hmmm, during the night it's down to just 3 or 4 times. I have not gotten AF back. So, I, too am trying to catch the first egg.
I'm trying not to put pressure on myself, but I feel like I have just a 6 month window to get pregnant. I teach at a University & i can take off the Jan Semester, but can not take off the September Semester. So, baby by June of 2004 would be great. We plan to stop trying at the end of September. I reallly hope we get pregnant by then. I don't really think I could stop trying once I started!
I'm temping right now & hopeful that cycles will return. Christy, I shrieked when I read your last post. I get up anywhere from 7 to 10 in the morning and my temps have been 97.7 just about every morning!!! Crazy coincidence. Guess i won't go buy a new thermometer. I've been interpreting the temp to mean that I have not O yet, but that it will come. I have had creamy, then egg white mucus then sticky or scant, but no O yet. I've read in Tony Weschler's book Taking Charge of Your Fertility, that while lactating, your body works up to O over a series of weeks, trying and trying until all the hormones line up. The good news is, we are no longer having annovulatory cycles. It's just a matter of time, I figure.
