Having a yucky night tonight. Since being off the pill I've put on 7kg (thankfully have lost 3kg of that) and have horrendous acne, not to mention never knowing when I'm ovulating because of the length of my cycles. I just said to hubby that it's not fair that his body doesn't change at all through trying for a baby, pregnancy and breastfeeding yet I suffer all these yuck side effects. I told him I feel like it's enough to make me just be happy with the one beautiful child that we have because I get so upset with how I look, particularly with my acne. If it was just one cycle off the pill I could deal with it but it's the months of trying, 9 months of pregnancy, at least 6 months of breastfeeding (I'm not going to put my vanity over breastfeeding) - the way we're going it's going to be over 2 years of me having horrendous skin.
Sorry ladies, just feeling tired and over it :-(
Hang in there hun! It's so tricky... allow yourself this 'moment' and tomorrow when the sun is shining I promise it won't seem as hopeless...
And rant/vent away here as much as you need! x
Hi ladies, am finally ttc#2, #1 has just turned 3 and I was on implanon- haven't had a period since he was about 8 months old- so absolutely no idea where we are at in terms of ovulation or even cd yet.... But I guess you have to start somewhere
I'm joining from the April thread. For those that I haven't come across before, I'm 36 and TTC baby #2. Started TTC in January, conceived in Feb, mc in March and here I am TTC again. We didn't really have much BD in April as we've all been sick but we managed to have 2 BD sessions in my fertile period. I'm not planning on testing early unless I feel definite symptoms as I drove myself crazy testing last month.
