I'm new to this site and new to ttc. We decided to ttc last month, but was too close to the end of my cycle when we decided, so this is officially our first month I'm 29, dh is 34 and we've been together 7 years, married for 2.
I have been on BC for 13 years and have a lot to learn. I understood all the basics, and knew that some people conceive easily while others can take years, but I can honestly say that I didn't realize sex had to be timed so carefully around ovulation. What I didn't know about BCP was that it eliminated my sex drive! I could go for months and months without even missing or wanting sex and couldn't figure out why. I'd been to my doc and asked about it, and she assumed I wa depressed. I wish she would have told me, a grown married woman that it could be my BCP!!! Didn't take long for me to get off BCP and I'm a little horndog!
I just started charting CM at the start of my cycle, but BBT would be difficult to time with me because of my shiftwork. I have always been very irregular when not on BCP so should make life interesting. I've been off for 2 months now so hopefully some sort of pattern develops soon.
Well, that's it for me! O should be coming at the end of this week or early next, so I've got my fingers crossed.
I look forward to meeting everyone here and hopefully our stays aren't too long
Well, I don't quite know what to think of all this. I've been reading up on post BCP, and I think I'm psyching myself out. I've been reading up on the CM since that's all I can chart properly at the moment, and it seems I've been dry since day 1. I'm on day 11 and after reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility, I'm thinking I should be seeing a change by now.
Oh well, just keep on bding, and bought on OPK so maybe that will help me out this month.
Went out for dinner with friends who have a 3 week old baby. Wow, didn't know how bad I wanted this until I saw her. She's gorgeous!
