||My mood while writing this blog:|
January 3rd, 2011 ♥
It's time to start a new year of TTC #2, since 2010 was a bust. CD2. On the upside, the cycle that just ended was my shortest cycle in the past year, at 29 days! I'm really hoping that will continue this cycle, and the next, and the next, if I don't get a BFP by then. I should call my doctor within the next few days since it's officially been 1 year TTC, but I just don't want to. I keep thinking 'let's see what this cycle does'..but I know it's time to face reality..but do I have to JUST yet? I don't know what I'll do yet. Of course I know it's good to get testing done and try to get some answers, but I'm afraid of what those answers might be..I'm just being a chicken. :/ I don't know what I'll end up doing yet..maybe if no signs of ovulation by CD25, I'll call him..we'll see. Baby dust to all you TTC and congrats to those with BFPs!! Happy New Year, everyone! May 2011 be our year!! :)

Last cycle I got some intense stomach cramping 2 days before ovulation, coupled with some EWCM. The stomach pains were so painful..I'm not sure how to describe it..but my whole stomach (as in around and ABOVE my bellybutton) felt very tight and twisted, like I had done 1000 crunches and my muscles were all pulled..just really painful and intense. Well, yesterday I got that same pain, but no EWCM, so I don't know if it's completely unrelated or actually ties in with ovulation somehow. All I can do is wait it out and see what the next few days bring. If I'm gearing up to ovulate, that will be absolutely incredible! I'm CD16 (which is actually when, last cycle, I got those stomach pains!) which means my cycle might finally be regulating!! I'm so excited at just the thought of it! I'll update if I do ovulate in a couple days. :) Baby dust!

Well I don't think the cramping in my stomach I had was related to ovulation. I'm 3dpo today. I think our timing was pretty good, so fingers crossed!

14dpo today and got a BFN. Hopefully AF will get here today or tomorrow and I can get on with the next cycle. If my body is regulating like I think it might be, then I hope to ovulate around my birthday (2/21).

CD1 today..on to cycle #11. I really think this cycle is going to be it! It'll be my 11th cycle and if I ovulate in a reasonable time, I could be due around 11/11/11..we'll see!
February 24th, 2011 ♥
CD16 and got a +OPK today! This is my second time trying OPKs. The first time I went through 30 of them, and then ovulated a few days later, lol. So this is my first time getting a positive! I feel like I'm going to ovulate really soon, and since it's CD16, that's AMAZING.

CD19, 3dpo! I ovulated the day I got my +OPK, so our timing isn't great. It's not bad at all, but definitely not great. We'll see what this cycle brings. I really think this is going to be the one, even though our timing could have been better! :)

13dpo and my temp took a nose dive..I really thought this was going to be the one. I'm expecting AF today or tomorrow. I'm a little depressed at the moment because, like I said before, I really thought this was going to be my cycle..everything just seemed perfect (11/11/11 and my daughter was born 08/08/08 and it was my 11th cycle, etc) but instead of me being pregnant and getting to share my excitement with my family, my cousin who is my age and got married this past July told me that she's pregnant and due November 15th, 2 days before what my due date would have been. She said they were Not Trying, Not Preventing. Talk about a slap in the face. I'm happy for her..but man..that hurt.

CD1. Onto cycle #12. Maybe we can get a Christmas baby this year..
March 28th, 2011 ♥
CD18 and still no +OPK. I also have a cold right now, so I don't know how accurate my temps are going to be.

- Tuesday, 4 Jan I hope this is YOUR cycle. Call the doc as soon as you are comfortable. My doc knows that my cycles have never been regular (28 days to 365 days sporatically since age 14). So I went in right away before even offically TTC. My doc says that we know there is an issue so lets test right away for all sources of issue and limit the natural TTC. We all know the pain of seeing the BFN, and my doc realizes that. kimkayb
- Tuesday, 4 Jan I'm w/ Midwest :) It is whatever you feel comfortable with. Gosh, you are so young compared to myself. With us older folk they tend to not "wait" things out. How long did it take you w/ Braelyn?? It's good that your cycles are shortening up a bit. Do you know how long your LP is? That's what one of my problems was and taking Clomid seemed to straighten that out a bit. Best of luck to you!! We need some 2011 babies and we still have a little time to do so :] Midwest
- Tuesday, 4 Jan If you feel like waiting before you call your doc then do so. Everyone feels different. I've been trying for over a year now as well. My doc was comfortable in waiting until I had been trying 14 months before starting testing. I'm older though and wanted to get things moving along, so we went ahead and saw a fertility specialist. Good luck and baby dust to you!
