Hi All,

New to the site (and I'm not sure what I am doing!) Here is a little background about me and my hubby.
- - Sorry this is so long!!!!- -
I just turned 34 and my husband 40. We've been married almost 2 years now, and late March, we decided that we are not going to try, but not prevent either.

My last period was March 1-5. (we started unprotected sex March 25th (and before that used the pull out method as BC) (Today is CD77). My periods have been crazy since they started, and I can honestly go months with out a period. Years ago I was on BC, but it made me completely insane and I hated how I acted on them. So now, I just let the cycle run is course.

I picked up a ovulation test kit (first the strips with the lines, that I could never seem to read correctly (every test looked like it had 2 lines) so I finally picked up a digital kit and got the little 'smiley face' that predictes ovulation twice since we started 'trying' (April 28th & May 4th). We have dtd almost every 3 to 4 days since late March (except for two seperate weeks - because of my husbands work schedule) I have been feeling a little bloated and have been having kind of cramps for about a week now. (on my right side, under my stomach and a slight twinge every now and again, but no AF) My breast are not sore nor do they hurt and every once in awhile I feel a little nausea, but I dont know if its for real, or if my mind is just playing tricks on me??? For the past 3 days I have been tired. (I have gotten a better nights sleep then I normally do, yet I am still tired.) I'm not sure if I am tired, or just feel lazy (to be honest) I am not the type to sit on the couch and do nothing, but these past few days, I dont even want to fold a load of laundry

I have taken pregnancy tests, and they all have been negative. (about 6 of them, and have been trying to chart my cervical mucus). To be honest, the PT have been store brand. Do you ladies think I should try for EPT or First Response?

I am afraid to have a cup of regular coffee (used to have one large cup everyday) and even more concerned about what to eat. ( I have always been a junk food junkie (always needing that little sweetness after a meal) and the thought of exchanging them for fruit is not on my list of favorite things to do. But I am afraid to eat.

The last thing I want to mention is that I emailed my Gyno and he suggested that since I have had a 50/50 period over the last 8 months (4 periods in 8 months) that I should come and see him and maybe take Clomid. I want to go see him, but I do not want to risk the possibility of a multiple pregnancy. So, i have been putting off going to see him, hoping that either AF shows up, or even better, a positive pregnancy test.

Thoughts and advice welcome!!
