@MrsTugs - chasteberry! Ha ha ha!
@Katvee and @clucky_duck I started seeing an acupuncturist. In the first month she got me to a regular 28 day cycle. I'm on the second month seeing her and it looks like I'm due to ovulate in the next few days giving me a proper length luteal phase. I would still recommend seeing GP to get checked out, but acupuncture could help though too. (Just make sure they're qualified/registered etc)
If i get pregnant this cycle, bubs due date will be DD2s birthday but my bubs are always at least a week early. Kind of dreading going through summer preg but tbh i found going through summer in 1st trimester with DD1 worse than 3rd trimester with DD2 for some reason.
Theoneandonly- acupuncture sounds great! But not for me as I'm so phobic of needles otherwise I'd be right into it...I'm seeing a chiro and they are apparently really good for conception.
I'm seeing my GP end of this week to get my pap done...God I hate paps...so uncomfortable, but has to be done. Will ask about chaste berry
Thinking of bringing TTC forward to Sept...think my phase of socialising is slowly going back to normal. I think by mid year I would have gotten it out of my system and I'm excited to be thinking about becoming a mummy that much sooner. Plus we had an amazing day with my sister's two little boys. Makes me clucky
Clucky it's good you're reevaluating your goals. Even if you don't change your mind, self evaluation is always healthy :-) we should all do it more often. you'll know when you are ready!!
Where's everyone gone!!? Not much chatting
Yeah it's so quiet in here these days :-(
Well I shall make a contribution to the conversation (or lack thereof).
The last few months I haven't had my usual PMS symptoms - sore boobs etc, but they're getting sore now, especially when I touch them. DH makes fun of my when it gets cold and I went to poke my nipples back in (when he's teasing me he likes to rub or tweak them - very annoying lol) they were really tender. When I first started seeing the acupuncturist, it was these symptoms where she got really interested before telling me she thinks I have endometriosis. So I'm hoping that it's the more common pre pregnancy symptom as opposed to just a PMS symptom or more annoying problems.
In other news, I met up with some of the extended family last night who are up for a holiday and my cousins 2 little ones were there (nearly 2.5 and 4months). The 2.5 year old is hilarious. He was a bit shy at first as this was the first time I'd met him, but he loves his uncle who I was sitting next to. Many rounds of "row row row your boat" later I think I've won him over haha. He's such a smily little kid too. Even though he up waaaaaaaaaaaay past his bedtime he wasn't grumpy. I want happy kids like that!
@MrsTugs - yes, it has been quiet. Personally I've been consumed with work and a group I've recently joined that's taking ALL of my free time to keep up with.
BT yesterday registered oestrogen at around 800 and dildo cam scan showed a follie of 19.2 (I think). So O should be happening this weekend. Yippee! Got told to DTD last night and tonight and then a BT on Monday to confirm whether O has happened.
Every time I go to the new clinic, I am reminded of how great a choice I made by changing my FS. Even the scan lady was nicer, more gentle and willing to talk me through things than the previous place (don't get me wrong - they were also nice, but this lady was just amazing).
We have guests over tonight, so hoping DH is in the mood to BD again tonight. Then if the Monday BT says I O'd, then it's the TWW for me! Fx!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now I need to rush home and save everything in the dining and lounge rooms being chucked into the spare bedroom. (that's how DH tidies in our place)
