Hi guys. Still pretty new to this site. We are TTC in December. Not by choice!! I have been with DF for 6 years and engaged for 2. Im 28, will be 29 in a few months. No plans to get married. We are both work-a-holics who can't say no to anything, sport, committees etc. No kids at the moment. The negative of my job is the long hours but the benefit is that the maternity leave benefits are amazing!!
So was planning on TTC now, stopped taking the OCP after 10 years, been taking my multi vitamins for 3 months already, we have had a few unprotected sxc times (ha love that word!!) a few times in the last week but just got doctors results from pre conception tests and found out both my rubella and chicken pox antibodies are super low. Just had a jab and need a booster in 6 weeks, then have to wait 4 weeks till it's safe to TTC. That takes me pretty much to Xmas. I'm so impatient but doctors orders were to STOP trying and just wait it out. Apart from that I'm ready to go! Super healthy, good diet and am in a healthy weight range due to recent weight loss.
But this should give me time to work out my cycle length and we will just use condoms in the meantime. If I have a normal 28 day cycle I am due for ovulation. I have had ridiculous stomach cramps and a sore back for the last 2 days. Kind of worried that I may be pregnant (unlikely!!) but hoping they are just ovulation symptoms. I'm charting these symptoms so I can actually work out what my body is telling me!!
I look forward to taking this journey with you all!!
