What has been the most challenging part in you TTC journey so far?

For me its the fact that I am not even sure if I truly am ovulating, I do have my cycle back and it has been pretty regular up until this past one, which was frustrating to say the least. for all I know I have been anovulatory

For me, I didn't get my period until last week, at over 15 months PP!
Now, the baby fever has settled some and I'm not feeling crazy, so I'm not temping or anything, but will probably DTD when I notice EWCM.
It's nice to have some more control over TTC now with a period!

Hmm, guess you all know what has been hardest for me what with having a short luteal phase. But at least that finally seems to be behind me.
I don't recall worrying about my period? It came back when my daughter was 9mths so I didn't really get to the stage when I might have thought hmmm....when is it going to come? I had read that nursing kept it away longer and I was always determined to nurse on demand and be an extended breastfeeder (nurse beyond 1yr).

I think the biggest challenge, probably for everyone who has had to *try* to get pregnant for more than a few months is seeing other pregnant women. Esp if they are family and friends. The loyalty and joy you feel for them is mixed with jealousy and hurt for yourself and the pain can be unbearable at times.

My period hasn't returned yet, so I can't really try to get pregnant until then. And since I'm tandem nursing, I'm not sure how long it will stay gone. It came back when my daughter was 7 months, but I didn't ovulate for another 7 months. Now my youngest is 9 months and I still haven't got my period back.

Mine would be the short luteal phase and ovulating late in my cycle. The earliest I've ovulated is CD 24.

I still haven't gotten my period back and Lily will be 9 months on the 4th. I've been having crampy feelings for the past few months though, but then AF doesn't show up

Sorry if you already read my posts and know this but I feel obligated to 'help' and say that I am amazed by how taking 200mg of B6 for one and a half cycle fixed my luteal phase straight away. I wish I had known sooner! Feel free to email me if you want to ask anything more about it! glowscarlet@yahoo.co.uk
