Hi Ladies!
It's been such a long time since I've posted you, hopefully some of you still remember me

I have baby fever soooo bad and DH and I are going to TTC #2 starting in the fall...the only catch is that we have a very short window of opportunity (3 months) in order to conceive to time the baby's birth during my summer break next year (when I will have no classes for 3 months). This is a bit tricky with my history of PCOS, but I am a firm believer that if something is meant to happen, it will happen. And if it doesn't, then it wasn't the right time and I am truly okay with that...though of course I want it to happen!

If it doesn't happen during that timeframe, we will wait for another year to try and time the birth when I graduate from my program.

I need to get my Implanon BC taken out shortly to see if my body will cycle on it's on, or if I will need some metformin or Clomid to help with ovulation this time around. When we were TTC DD, Metformin alone helped me to ovulate.

I am also working out/eating better (I am down about 7 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight with DD), started prenatal vitamins, and put a call in to see a chiropractor who does acupuncture as well.

Is there anything else I am missing or you think I could do to have the best possible chance of conceiving in such a short window?

I would chart and do OPKs. If you are working with a short window, I would bust out all the big guns

Unfortunately, DH lost is job a few weeks ago, so looks like TTC #2 will be put on hold for another year

Updated: New job! New insurance! Implanon out and we are officially TTC #2!
