I will be 27 years old on April 21. My man and I have been trying for a child almost 6 months. I have a 4 year old daughter and it would be nice to have another child. I was diagnosed with primary generalized epilepsy when I was 21. I got pregnant with my first child shortly before I was diagnosed with my condition. I miscarried when I was almost three months along, then a few months later I became pregnant with my daughter. Both of them were unplanned . My siezures only happen when i am asleep. I have been fortunate not to have had one since 2006, and controlled with medication.
I sailed through my pregnancy with my daughter, I felt so healthy and wonderful. I recently got off of my medication Effexor and Ativan, so I could have a healthy pregnancy. I have been taking a prenatal vitamins from GNC and taking alot of folic acid along with it. The doctor told me to take 4000 mcgs of it. I have been doing it faithfully. I changed my diet, by adding more water, vegies, and fruits. I did all that, and I paid dearly for it...lol..my digestive tract hated me for 2 weeks. I don't drink alchol or smoke.
I have been charting my Basal temps, tracking when I had intercourse, when I ovulated. We had intercourse everyday, then we cut back some and waited until my fertile window and when I ovuated. I still had no luck. I thought this time would be it, because I had nausea everymorning, my sense of smell hightened....like overtime My whole body felt different. Doc said timing was everything. I timed it right on the money in Feb, and my period was late. I took a pregnancy test it said negetive then an hour after that I started my period. I felt like all of that planning was a waste of time. I see alot of TTC's that are having no luck like I am. I am on facebook alot, everyone is having babies and it makes me feel bad. Then I came to this website and seen that I am not the only one who is trying. I hope I can get some good advice out there. Anykind of advice or feed back would be very wonderful.
What else can I do? I have been doing pre-natals and folic acid. We have even took fertility blend from GNC.. alot of vitamins and money into this stuff.
