TTC June 2020

Recommended Posts

Don't know whats going on with me, I had three days of spotting and now 7 days of AF 😭 While my periods have been longer since having my daughter, 10 days of bleeding is really extreme. Normally its 5 days of AF and a spotting day at either end. Between that, the faint line I thought I saw and the super-tingly boobs, I do wonder if we had a chemical....

Hey Blackcat, with my CP AF was a lot heavier and slightly longer than usual, but if the bleeding continues i'd maybe check in with the Dr?

Sarah_434 did anything come of your shadowy IC line?

AF showed up for me so CD 4 now. A couple things happened in the week leading up, including my sisters pregnancy announcement and possible job opportunity, that actually made me  feel ok about the BFN this time.

I really want baby #2 to be close in age with DD but if this job is a possibility I'm not sure whether to postpone trying. My brain hurts thinking about it. It's kind of a dream job situation. Has anyone else been through this? it's tough because say I put it off for 3 months to qualify for maternity leave, but then it still takes another 6 months to conceive, I'll always wonder if we'd kept trying if it would have happened sooner. Honestly though I don't think ill be able to stop trying. Has anyone fallen pregnant straight after starting a job?

Sorry for the ramble

@Hoppy123 it seems to have mostly stopped today. It's all very strange, my cycles are usually so consistent. I thought it had stopped two days ago but it started up again 🤷‍♀️

I'm not sure Id wait just because of a job, unless you really need the mat leave pay. There's no guarantee it'll happen right away anyway. We were initially going to wait to July to start due to a few things later this year but thought why waste time, and we've had no luck so far anyway so its made no difference.

Sorry to hear you didn’t have any luck this cycle either @Hoppy123 and @blackcat20

How old is your daughter now Hoppy? I’d probably base my decision on how much you need the maternity leave pay.... if you do, then I’d probably wait out the notice period but if you can survive without it then I’d keep TTC!

Im back on CD4 after the 16 day cycle. I have a drs appointment and ultrasound booked in to see what is going on. I never have long cycles, but 16 days is ridiculous!

16 days is definitely not right. Hopefully they can shed some light for you.

Sorry to hear about the AFs, hoppy and Blackcat. Hope they can sort out what’s going on NSN, 16 days can’t be right. 
 

AFM, BFNs so far AF is due on Friday

I'm up to CD20 today. Did digital OPKs on cd12-16 but didn't get a positive this month which was unusual for me. Based on CM think I may have ovulated CD12 and would have got a positive on CD11 but didn't test early enough. That's what I'm hoping anyway. We did plenty of BD to cover our bases regardless and will keep that up for the next week just in case I'm going to ovulate late this cycle. 

I turned 30 yesterday and got a bit down in the dumps over the weekend thinking about how I thought I'd have a baby by 30 or at the very least be pregnant (we've been trying for 15 months). But then I had the absolute best day celebrating yesterday and felt so special and loved which has helped me think more positively about things. My 20s were fabulous and I achieved so many things, travelled heaps, had wonderful experiences just my husband and I and had a great time, without having to worry about being responsible for a baby. My 30s can be all about being a mum 🙂

In other news I had my second appointment with our fertility clinic today where we go our test results back. Really happy with the results - my AMH was 31 and I had 21 follicles (10 on one ovary and 11 on the other) which the doc said were excellent numbers and mean I should respond really well to IVF. So feeling quite positive after that. We have our first fertility specialist appointment on 6 July and then will get things in train to start IVF. In the meantime one can only hope June is our month and we don't need IVF in the end! 

Sorry for the long post - hope everyone is doing well. Sorry to see that a few of you have had AF arrive recently.

Happy birthday @hopefulbabymama. Don't focus on you age; I always thought I'd have kids by 30 but I didn't meet my husband until just after my 30th birthday. Being a few years older hasn't had any impact in terms of managing pregnancy or parenting. Great that your results were good, hopefully things get happening 😄

How do you track? OPK? Fertility App?

I used both this month. OPK a lot more reliable. I also took notice of CM. The app was way out on ovulation, so it was interesting using all methods.

I use Ovia, it worked well for me last time. Keep an eye on my CM and O cramps, and using OPKs this time for added safety.

Do you use IC OPKs?

That's what I've been using but I find the ones I have not very clear.

Yes, but I didn’t use them last pregnancy, I used the clear blue digital. They aren’t super clear but it’s enough of an indication to know we’re getting our timing right.

Is anyone changing their diet or doing anything different?

No diet changes here, we eat pretty healthy anyway.

I’m 4.5 weeks post D&C, still waiting on my cycle returning. In a normal cycle I’d expect my period about now so I hope it is soon. I feel like I’m in limbo - can’t try yet but also have no idea when we can. Meanwhile I have multiple close friends who have recently or will soon give birth! 
 

I haven’t made any dietary changes @Sweet.Pea as I usually eat pretty healthily. I usually do IF though so I have wondered whether it is worth not doing that?

@eignei gave up fasting when I was trying to get pregnant last time, figured it was a stress my body didn't need.
