Dont get me wrong, I love my 15 year old daughter more than anything. In fact I love being a mom so much that we're ttc more. I had my daughter when I was single and only 18 and now that Im 34 and married, DH and I really want a baby (or 3). My daughter is a good kid, does well in school and is generally a pleasure to be around. However, I swear she times her teenage girl freak-outs/meltdowns to the very minute I ovulate! How am I ever going to get pregnant like this?!? We started using opks this month to see if we can better pinpoint my ovulation. I guess all these months of ttc using just the calendar on fertility friend wasn't working so now we'll try opks too. I just worry that the stress could be delaying or completely inhibiting my ovulation. We've been trying for months and every month I symptom spot like a lunatic, but Im still not pregnant. Is anyone else here dealing with this kind of situation? How am I supposed to deal with the stresses of teenagers while ttc?
I understand what your going throught I have a girl who will be 18 next month. Im 38.. but its my 16 year old who Im having issues with.. they all know we want another child wich will make 4.. but my son told me falt out he doesnt want me to have anymore..and that hurt he is always arguing with me over little stuff and constanly giving me attitude and said IM TO OLD to have more kids.. .so I told him it aint up to him to decide what I will and wont do...and that he has no place to tell me what I should and should not do...and also told him if he feels that he wants to be the man there was the door,...dont hit where the good lord split ya...lol
so yes I understand it feel like there trying every thing they cant to sabatog..or however you spell it .. lol...hugs to you.. good luck..my hubby is gone more than he is home to when it is time if were lucky,, I shut my self down so I can try and make it throught onther tww alone,,,
Aww yes! I know the feeling. My daughter is 15 and she is going through that sassy/attitude stage and it drives me up the wall. It can be very stressful but I try not to let her get to me anymore. I just pray lol.
I had similar problems TTC both of mine. It seems like something would always happen around O, I'd get upset, and all the O signs would vanish and not return for a couple weeks. I'd have 25-75 day cycles. It took 2 years to get DD1. It took 3 to get this pregnancy.
I know that stress, any stress happy or upsetting, can delay or mess with O. Vitex really helped to regulate my cycles. I only had to take it 2-3 months, and I was suddenly O'ing within the same 4 days every cycle. Having a sip every night can't hurt either. =) If I thought of it, I'd have been mixing up daiquiris while I had the chance!
