So, I started TTC in July of 2012. Previously, I had been quite overweight and the year before had lost about 60 lbs. So I was thinking 'GREAT! IM HEALTHY, THIS SHOULDNT BE A PROBLEM'. However, due to this weight loss, my cycles became very irregular. From around a 40 day cycle when I was heavier, to anything from 26-51 day cycles, never being the same each time.
I had tests done as doctors thought I had PCOS, but my hormone levels were normal. They then sent me for a scan, and found I had polycystic ovaries (meaning multiple cysts on my ovaries, just not the syndrome) The said it shouldnt be a problem in TTC, but nevertheless I had already been trying for at least 7 months by that point, and at my age of 21, I was starting to think that there much be a problem.
So I started using OPK'S to work out ovulation. I'd often get multiple positives which made it hard to time BD, but as the months went by I found out more info about what I could do to help the TTC journey along a bit. I started taking FOLIC ACID AND B6 VITAMINS (about 50mg)
This cycle I started Pre-seed and charting for the first time, and when I compared my chart to others, I couldn't work it out. I had slight dips where I thought OV'd and then major rises even before OV. I also used OPK's. I had a positive on CD 26, and had a slight dip (only minor) in BBT, so I figured I OV'd then. It started to rise after that, but then dipped slightly at 3 DPO, and then was rather erratic after that. I had the smallest of temp dips on 8 DPO, but I thought nothing of it as it was so small and i'd had bigger dips than that days before. It then had a rise after, but as we were approaching 12DPO it levelled out and kept doing alternate temperatures of 36.68, then 36.54 each time.
So at 14DPO (today) I thought what the hell I have a FRER test in my draw, might as well take it so I can move on and stop thinking about whether I am or not (really had no hope this month) and it came up straight away! STRONGEST POSITIVE EVER!!
Just yesterday, I was reading all these TTC success stories and getting so sad because I thought 'That will never be me :(', I couldn't believe it this morning! Lets just hope this little ones sticks around!
