-I keep track with ovulation with calendars and opks.
-We do the deed every other day and sometimes 2 days in a row during ovulation week.
-We do the deed about 2 times a week on non ovulation week.
-I work out 3-4 times a week. Either jog or walk the dogs. Husband hardly ever works out. Can't get him too and tired of trying.
-We don't buy sodas at the store anymore.
- 1 cup of coffee a day
- Husband has diabetes and wouldn't hurt to lose 15 lbs, but won't work out. He has been checked by a doc and doc says his count is good. Just keep your blood sugar down< he doesn't always watch it. I've tried to tell him. But that works 1-2 days.
- Husband has a new job , So no insurance yet. Probably could have had it by now but his excuse is it cost money.
- Guess that's it.
TTC can be so frustrating! How long have you been trying? Maybe it wouldn't hurt to get checked out by the doc and make sure the plumbing is working correctly.....I know stress can be a big factor for TTC as well....it seems the months people aren't trying as hard is the month they get pregnant. Good luck to you! Do you know you ovulate?? I know that has been our problem, the OPKs make it look like we do, but I really don't :/ So this month we are trying Clomid again...used it two years ago to get pregnant with my DD, then last year got pregnant on our own by surprise...now we are having troubles again :/
If you have been trying this long you definitely need to see an RE when you can afford to. Most insurance doesn't cover fertility treatments but some cover testing.
After a year of a TTC and no pregnancy there is normally a medical condition that needs intervention. It could be a super simple fix! Have you ever in the past had your CD3 labs done?
Does your obgyn offer anything like "family planning" to where you can walk in and get a pap for free? If so, maybe you can do that and go ahead and get the run down of your ttc journey out of the way until you get insurance. I know how frustrating it can be with no insurance... When I was ttc my first, I didn't have insurance. I was paying for my RE appointments out of pocket. Thankfully, I was shortly after added to DH insurance and they covered the ultrasounds, blood work, and my hsg. The only thing they didn't cover was my clomid and if I would have chose to have the exploratory lap done to check for endometriosis, they wouldn't have covered that just because it was "investigational" and nothing that needed to be done. Good luck!!!
