PREDICTIONS: ROXY: i see MAY and BOY
CHERI: sees OCTOBER (more of a EDD than conception month) and BOY
20 December 2009
While out doing the final bits of Christmas shopping, Dh and i got talking... he said that he thinks it would be better for me to get pg when Morgan (our DD of 6 months) is walking so that i dont have to carry her around. I thought otherwise and said that i would rather spend my first trimester while Morgan is still crawling because once she gets walking and running around i don't think i could handle the ms and fatigue that comes with being pg and in the first trimester.
He agreed and said that if thats how i would rather have it then its up to me.
SOOO WE ARE TTCING! I'm not expecting to get pg in a flash but it would be great if things turned out that way (dont we all wish that?)
With Morgan it took us 8 months and two early mc and 2 rounds of clomid to conceive her. So the chances of this being as easy as one, two, three... are slim...
Met (100mg) - first month
Vit B6 (100mg) - for LPD and serious PMS
Cranberry (800mg) - lower cm ph for gender swaying
Culcium (1000mg) - lower cm ph for gender swaying
folic acid (800mcg) - pregnancy health
Increase dairy in diet - for gender sway
nothing going on now... just basically finished AF, and SOY. I have found research on the net that says that soy can help with ovulation. I do not belive it can bring O forward but i do believe it can create healthy follies and a stronger O, this intern helps lengthen ones LP. So i am hoping this helps in my case.
nothing much to report, not even cramping or O-like pains or anything. I know that i ovulate really late so this cycle i am not getting excited even though i took the soy. I personally dont think that soy helps bring O sooner. If it did then there wouldn't be clomid... am i right?
Anyway, I haven't done much in the way of changing my diet. Just trying to stay away from carbs (coz of the met) and i havent had any alcohol this cycle YET!!! I must admit i will not pass on a few glasses on Xmas and New Year. I feel that if i stress out and play to hard at this whole making another baby thing, i am only going to frazzel myself out like i did with ttcing Morgan.
So FF still thinks i have ovulated! I am now apparently 7dpo. I really dont think so,my temps are WAAAy to low for that. I think i have had some activity in my ovaries the past few days so I think i might be cooking up an egg in there.
anyway, its getting close to my fertile time so we will probably start our bd every second day plan.
so its been 10 days since i have updated. In those ten days i have had cramping and what feel like cysts forming and i have been sick. im sick right now actually. i think i have a sinus infection, its horrible and i feel like crap.
Im not sure if its been the sinus or the met but the past week i have felt EXHAUSTED! i wake up and i actually cant cope. yesterday morgan went down at 6pm and so did i. i got straight into bed and i was lights out. i woke up when dh got home but he told me to stay in bed and get better so i he made dinner and the i got back into bed and i was out.
anyway, i dont know if todays big dip means that i will be Oing today and i am sick of getting my hopes up. if it happens if happens.
