Good Morning! Sorry I've been so MIA lately.. Last week (as you know) my DS had some stomach issues. Along with that my DH was out of town for a week (hunting). And I was a "single mom" working full time on top of all of that.. I got a little stressed and had to take a break from JM lol. Anyways. I'm on CD 47. With no evidence of O'ing. I have used up all of my OPK (like 50). I have had numerous - HPT. I even took a digi and it was a BFN. So I called the dr and I go tomorrow. I decided I will put it all out on the table. (we haven't really told anyone we're TTC) I told my dr in Aug that we were NTNP. But in all reality we've been TTC since April. DH thinks i'm stressing myself out and that is why I haven't gotten a BFP. but I will talk to my dr tomorrow. I have been really hesitant because of my sister. Some of you may remember me talking about her.. She had ENDO really bad (only has one ovary now). and her DH has super low sperm. So she has / had been seeing a specialist and she's always been SUPER jealous of every one who can have babies easily. As you know I got PG with DS on "accident" (however, like audree pointed out.. we had NTNP (occasional BCP) for about a year and a half before I got PG) and she hated me the whole time (I was also 19) and after DS was born she changed and I hated to lose that friendship we've gotten over the last 2.5 years.. but this is MY life and I WANT a nother baby and I think I should be able to have one without the fear of losing a family member over it. Anyways, I will tell my dr that I've opk, temp, BD at least 2 times a week trying every other day, but its hard. I had my thyroid checked in March, said it was fine. Had some cysts in April (why i had implanon taken out) so I'd like them to check me out and make sure I don't have any more. I tried to talk to my mom last night about it.. but she got all weird on me. (which is normal, my mom is bipolar I believe, she has a hard time right now) She was like "well you got pregnant once, what you don't think he's yours? you don't remember carrying him for 9 months?" and that just upset me lol. But anyways. Thats where I am.
What kinda questions should I ask the dr? should I just tell her everything??
Just tell her everything, even if you think it's embarrassing or something. They can't help you if you don't tell them everything. If she doesn't bring up checking for more cysts, ask her to do so. Definitely make sure to explain how your last two cycles have been with you not ovulating. It can be "normal" for people to try a year without getting pregnant, and to even have a random anovulatory cycle, but two in a row seems fishy to me.
Sorry about your sister. Depending on how it goes tomorrow you might should talk to her. Just let her know that you guys are having trouble. Maybe if she knows that she won't be too upset when you do get pregnant. I know I'd be upset if I found out my sister was pregnant but I'd feel better about it if I knew they had also been trying for a while.

Yikes!!! Dealing all on your own sounds like quite a chore. Sorry to hear. I must agree w/ the other ladies....sharing your family history w/ doctors even if it isn't your mother but your sister could play a major role in how aggressively your doctor might play your situation. Some doctors, the good doctors, will probably look at your sister's situation as a marker for potential family issues.
Ugh I have a whole list of things to talk with my dr about and I feel kinda stupid. I know that she's heard/seen worse things. And I just feel idk GUILTY? I know that I am having an issue, at least the last 2 months. But It's weird because I'm like "well there are other people out there worse off, you shouldnt be complaining" (like my sister, and of course you lovely ladies) and it makes me feel super guilty

There is always someone worse off than you. My life is not so great, I've got chronic health problems that keep me from working or going to school. Took me a year to finally get pregnant with the baby I've actually wanted over three years, and then promptly lost it. There's a chance my endo is acting up again and I will need a hysterectomy before I can get pregnant again. But I have a roof over my head. I have a husband who loves me. I'm not going hungry. I was able to buy new (to me, consignment shops ftw) clothes that I wanted yesterday. I always have something to read. Heck, I CAN read. But thinking about how there are others who don't have what I have doesn't mean things don't still suck. It's all about perspective. Other people going through worse doesn't diminish the pain you are going through. As one of the people who are "worse off" than you I would NEVER want you to not seek help. Like alittlelost said, you not getting help isn't going to fix any of our problems.
