Ok well I have been a lurker: in here for awhile
I thought it would be time to join the discussion as DP and I are going to start TTC #2. I am still bf'ing DD(18mo) strong as ever. So I might end up tandem nursing cause I dont see DD stopping anytime soon.
I am going into the ob on the 14th to swtich my BC from depo to a pill to regulate AF so I start O again. Doc said it may take anywhere from 3-24 months(wheew) to concieve #2 after depo. She also said I may be a lucky one and concieve right away
So we are at that stage of TTC. I also have been talking about it with DD and watching her reaction. She has been bringing me her "babies to share her milkies" for a few days now. Which might indicate that she is ok with sharing them.
I am excited to have another one..:
So I wish the best for everyone and hope for lots of for everyone...

Okay then...my af lasted 36 hours and now it's done! I'm really confused now. I've had 4 af's since having Hayley. The first was 3 days (28 day cycle, the second 3 days (28 day cycle), the third was 7 days (38 day cycle) and now 36 hours (25 day cycle). Originally ff had me oing on day 11, iy then changed to day 20. When I put my bledding in for sun/mon it moved it back to day 11 and put me in a new cycle. For the hell of it, I changed it to spotting so it would continue the old cycle.

I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative.

Should I start this as a new cycle and wait to O or is it possible that I'm actually pregnant and had abnormally heavy implantation bleeding? Here's my chart.

That is confusing Jen...I had very light bleeding with my pregnancy with ds and it lasted about 3-4 days. How heavy was your bleeding? I would start a new chart but maybe take a test in a couple more days...just in case.

Welcome jess12808! Good luck!

I am in the right place thanks esmlranch!

Good luck with the B6 ellymay! for you too this cycle. I hope all those april showers bring us many May Flowers!!! (I am so Korny!!)

At least af is starting to wind down! Let the games begin!

It was heavy enough! Lighter than my last period but still heavy enough to require a pad. It definitely wasn't spotting or pink stayed cm. I had no cramps just a big pimple on my chin!

I probably test again on Sunday just to be sure.

actually the b6 will make your cycle longer because it lengthens the lp. it doesn't change o though.

well, i headed over to the hfs for some vitex and b-complex today. i took vitex a couple years ago when i went off of the pill to get things back to normal. i guess i just kinda forgot about it until now! so maybe my magical cocktail will balance me out. i know from about the time i Oed before ppaf until now (about 1.5mos) my face has been breaking out like crazy, thanks hormones! so maybe getting some balace will help with my skin too. anyone else have better skin once their hormones got in check a little more?

jess12808 Good luck getting your hormones straightened out. We know how : it can be. Would you like to be added to the list?

surromommy

Jannyjo glad to hear that you are back. I hope that you are doing well.

jenandjames I remember you from before. I am so very sorry for your loss. That is such a terrible situation. I know your little baby girl will always be in your heart.
Would you like to be added to the list?

Cheryl you are so funny!

WEll, the other day my cervix position jumped up really high. I wondered if maybe, just maybe I am fertile? So dh and I dtd (a couple of times to be sure ) and today it is back down low. It stays up high when pg happens, doesn't it? Anyway, I started sort of freaking out because I am taking all these supplements right now and I would not want to be on all this if I was pg. I conceived ds right after I had some tests to make sure that I was healthy and actually fertile. So it would be just typical that I would get pg while I was working on my fertility.:

Hi!

Jen , I am so very sorry for your loss

I'm on CDwhatever. I haven't even opened fertilityfriend in a week. I'm not at all interested in charting this month. I'm not even sure that I want to try this month. I am terrified of getting pg and having another m/c. Terrified. I even turned down dhs "affection" tonight. (It's our third anniversary today, too. Poor DH )

I'm feeling angry. And upset. It seems like EVERY single freaking person I know is pregnant. It's like, "oh, let's try this month", and BAM they're pregnant. Or "oops"! Ugh. Of course I am SO happy for them, but when will it be my turn??

I'm also having a helluva time finding a Dr. There are NO naturopaths anywhere near me. I don't have a PCP and I HATE my ob/gyn. I finally found a family dr who is accepting new patients, but doesn't have an available appt until May 31st. All I want to have done is some bloodwork. Mostly to check the thyroid, etc. I'd really like to have it done before the 31st. Should I just go to my gyn? Who do you ladies go to if you just want to get some bloodwork done? I have a feeling that no matter who I call, since I'll be a new patient, it will be forever before I get an appt. Boo.

Anyway.... Whining over

I hope we see LOTS of bfps this month! And all of them sticky.

Oh, esmlranch, the thread does look lovely! Thanks for being this month's keeper

hannybanany You have every right to feel scared, angry, upset, etc. You need to make sure to take care of yourself.
I am a big fan of ARNP's (advanced registered nurse practitioners). They can order tests and prescribe drugs just like docs and in my experience are more willing to explore issues with you. It seems like they are more willing to "get to the bottom" of a problem rather than just write a prescription. AND they are typically easier to get an appt with. I think most insurance plans will cover them. In fact they are probably happy to see you using one since they are cheaper.
That may be something to look into.

Just wondering if I can be a part of this great group you've got here....I've been lurking for a few weeks!!
DH and I have been talking about TTC #2 soon, sometime this summer. DD will be one this weekend : I've had 2 PPAF's, the second being this weekend. I'm about halfway through TCOYF, and am charting for the first time. DH seems pretty interested in all of this (maybe it's just the DTD part )
We would start soon, but I'm trying to loose some pounds first! My AF was pretty irregular before DD, and I think a lot of it was weight issues.....when I was a normal weight AF was more regular. I just had my thyroid tested and that was normal. So.....thinking about being pg is a great motivator. I CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!
So I guess can you put me in waiting to be ready?? ( I know that's supposed to be in bold....I just can't make it work....sorry )

Good luck mamas!

Hello Ladies,
Here we are in May already! Hopefully we will have lots of success stories this month.

I am down to nursing 2 times per day (down from 5). I am wondering how long it will take to see some sort of effect from this (if there is going to be any, that is). I'm praying that I will finally O this month. That, in itself, will be a success for me.

Good luck to all of you!

Hi Mamas! I haven't been here in a while, but thought I'd join back in if you'll have me! According to my chart I'm 6dpo, but my temps are all over the place. I can't believe I"ve been ttc for over 6 months now...my little guy is now 19.5 months old - was 12 months when I joined!

Hey gals...I haven't had time to read all the other posts yet, but that will come...tomorrow. I'm currently 9-12 DPO (don't know exactly when I O'd....all I know is that I'm DANG excited that it was 51 days sooner than the previous cycle!!! Hoping my body keeps that up!). I'm thinking this cycle was a no-go (just judging on how I feel, my instincts, and my BFN today (had to take an HPT to convince myself to stop wondering, at least for a few more days : It worked!). So, I'm planning on giving vitex a shot next cycle. I haven't looked at the bottle yet (have the drops), but I will...but for now, how much should I plan on taking? And I start on CD 1, right? Do I take it every day of the cycle? (no stopping after O'ing or anything like that?)

i take 30 drops of vitex 2x per day. i don't think you need to wait until cycle day 1, just until you are sure of bfn. it takes a while to build up in your system so you just keep taking it. my nd said it will not harm if you become pg while taking it. i have read both that it is recommended and contraindicated during pg so

about the vitex -- what about in capsule form? Is this as good and how much of that is recommended? Anyone have a clue?

I have heard that the capsule form isn't absorbed as easily but I am not quite sure what dosage you would need to take. I have been taking a "fertility blend" that includes Vitex as it's main herb. I take about 40 drops 2 x/day but in previous cycles I was only taking it once a day. It comes in a tincture form.

surromommy2be Sorry about your kitty. It is so sad to lose a beloved pet.

Af is on her way out the door. Dh is already asking when he is going to "get some" :
One more week until my visit with my midwife for a check-up! I am just hoping I don't burst into tears when I see her. She makes me feel so comfortable that she usually sees my raw emotions so she must think I am a basket case! It's amazing how some people have that talent!
