My name is Beth, I am a newlywed in Southern Arizona. My husband and I have been trying to conceive since August'11 and have had nothing but BFN. I have endometriosis, which seems to be making this even more complicated!! I started charting, and using OTK.
I joined this site to hopefully gain support and an understanding of whats best to do, amongst other topics from successful pregnancies. Currently I am 4 DPO, my period is due in 10 days, I am over emotional, my boobs hurt, my face is breaking out way worse than usual, and I'm so bloated I look pregnant, Im afraid I wont be having a BFP this month! But, to help my odds for next month I would really appreciate any and all advice!
-I am in the process of quitting smoking,
-My husband and I have sex about 4-5 times a week during ovulation, 1-2 times during the rest of the month.
-I do not drink alcohol or use recreactional drugs
-I lay flat with my hips at an approx. 45 degree angle after sex, reguardless if I'm ovulating.
-I am a healthy, 5'5'', 118lb woman, I work out M-TH,and I eat relaively healthy, I eat all food groups, we just happen to like Burger King late at night!
-I have a history of breast and cervical cancer, and cronic abdominal pain- I have made full recoveries from them all.
-Currently I have endometriosis and moderate displasia, I am on no medications, though every morning I do take a Zertec (over the counter allergy medicine)
I appreciate any and all help! Thank you so much!
Hi :-) Good luck to you this cycle!
I suffer from Stage 4 Endo, so I know a little bit about what that's like. I actually had a lap for my endo and went on Lupron for 6 months (don't recommend it). It took us about 2 years overall to conceive DS, but really...it was about 10 months of true charting/cycle timing and actual ovulation.
Feel free to msg me if you have other questions about dealing with endo. It's super fun, right?
