my mum laughs at me cause she said I rely on the internet too much. I've looked up stats as to how fertility works after coming off which kind of contraceptive and said to mum when i wanted another implant in (poor planning on my behalf as they hurt it came out after 8 months) can take 12-24 months to get fertility back after coming off the pill. She thought I was hilarious as she fell PG 4 times within the month of deciding to get PG and going off the pill, my parents never mucked around they'd decide it was time for another and the deal would be done within the month and there was no planning or checking any fertility levels they were just lucky.
It'll happen when it's right, but I do like to know which cycle my body is in and where its at. Its hard when I have a DF who works away on weekends sometimes, my only days off work or if he is home is too tired for anything other then TV a beer and a sleep lol so need to know when to make the most of it . Although I'm sure when the stress of the wedding is over he will be happy and not stressed again.
Silly male stressed over 2 things only a speech and a dance could care less how anything else goes that I have had to prepare to arrange. Glad I'm not making a speech although I would stress about that less having done speech and drama since i was 8 and dance since i was 6. Am making things relatively easy, picked a short slow song so no high impact for him or to injure me in heels as haven't done dance formally since injured myself.
Well thank goodness it is the weekend now. 8 weeks left at work, and 9 weeks till wedding and can TTC
Hi all & Great Thread Elswyth
I'm not sure If I qualify, but I'm hoping to start TTCing in October this year, It's so far away, but I've 18 months to go on my Medical degree (I hope!) & hope to squeeze in number #3 as soon as I graduate & before starting at work. I have 2 little boys (4 & 1)
Welcome yes you do qualify to join us. Wow you must be busy 2 small boys and doing such an intense medical degree.
I'm a nurse, was meant to be doing post grad diploma this year that would start this month but knew getting married this year and building a house and TTC also in 2 months makes a full-time distance ed course a little too stressful atm for me
I'm new to all of this and love the idea of a thread with others on the countdown to TTC! We got married about 18 months ago now so we are at the next step! I started to take blackmores ifolate at the start of January and we will start TTC in April (sounds like its going to be a busy month!!).
I didn't have a great experience at the doctors when I went to have a pre TTC check up - unfortunately my GP has left town and I saw another doctor - I normally see female doctors, not sure why I just like them better (more through with their work ups??) and I saw a male doctor. He said as I looked to be in good health (despite not laying a hand on me!) & that I didn't need any blood tests etc - didn't even check my BP (and I am on Diane - I would have thought with the latest news about that its the least you would do!!). He said take folate and stop the pill and if there is no luck in 6 months then come back and we can reassess the need for tests. Mentioned nothing about pap smears, vaccinations etc. I managed to 'bully' him into getting a CBC and toxoplasma titre test - I work in the Vet industry and exposure to zoonosis is higher than normal. I walked out of there feeling $85 poorer and quite angry! There is a doctor at the clinic who's online bio said she has interests womans health so I think I will try again before April and see her.
Wow sorry to vent so soon!!
Isnt it funny we spend so long trying not to get pregnant and then it could potentially take ages to get pregnant!! We are going to come off the pill (2 more strips to go!) and then once AF has arrived in April its game on! I impulsively bought a clearblue fertility monitor off ebay on new years day and it arrived yesterday - I was a bit excited when I opened it!
Anyway enough about me! I look forward to chatting and going through it all with you ladies!!
