Will take a bump pic in the morning and post it
The heat and humidity is killing me. I can't wait for some cooler weather!
Ahh.. So with the FS did you have to go via a GP?
I succumbed to temptation and tested this morning... 2 days after my expected period and BPN haha, seems like my body is just being a cow
Yep, our GP was really good & listened & sent me for blood tests & DH for a SA, which is when we discovered the issue & got referred to the FS.
If you've been trying for 6 or 7 months & you're a little concerned then go to your GP. 😊 I'm not sure on your age/health, but it can't hurt to get checked out, especially if you sometimes have long cycles. Is this your first TTC?
Yes it is my first TTC - it's proving to be more of a PITA than expected
DH and I are both 28 and relatively healthy. Did get checkup/bloodwork done before we started trying and everything seemed good. Maybe another month or 2 I'll see the GP. Most sites I read recommend waiting 12 months before getting help so I don't want to be turned away
Haha! Yea that's what DH said.
But I went to the GP before starting to check immunity and other blood tests though! Although I suppose one can just go to a different one.
Yeah you can just lie but I guess you should also just remember that it can take up to 12 months for people who are for and healthy and "normal" to fall pregnant anyway. I think Dr's just don't want people going "shoot I'm not pregnant within 2 or 3 months so let's go see someone" when really there's no need to. So unless you do think there's something wrong then I'd just remain positive & keep trying. 😊 If you're DTD enough at the right time then sooner or later you'll fall pregnant. Like I said, I only didn't wait the 12 months this time cos it took just 3 with DS so I thought something was up. I'm glad I didn't wait as we were able to fix it quickly... Not that it's helped any to date though. Humph! Oh well onwards & upwards into March! 👍
@McBecks - That's a good move. Good luck with the FS..I really hope things work out .. Fx!
I spoke to my GP too last week after getting the pap smear results (all good there), she suggested waiting 2-4 months more as both dh and my results are normal..and we fell pregnant once which ended in a mc..so she said "don't see why you can't get pregnant again..keep at it.." to which my reply was - "that's exactly why it's so frustating, when nothing seems to be outright wrong !"
She referred a FS but suggested I wait for some more time as I seem to be ovulating regularly.. I'm thinking of waiting 4 months max...
