That's good to know sugarjules!

Was feeling the same way yesterday when we were trying. I forgot to elevate my hips during intercourse and a lot fell out. Oh well, we've been trying for the past 5-6 days so what is done is done now.

I wonder how easy it would be to give up ttc nat cos I reckon you'd always be noticing the signs! It kinda becomes an obsession doesn't it!
I'm actually off to the docs tomorrow to have a chat and see what's going on. I'm quite nervous but it's got to be done. The length of time we've been ttc seems a bit on the long side! Apparently they do blood tests but I'm not sure if that'll be tomorrow or if it has to be at a certain point in the cycle.

Hi windswept
Welcome on board! The symptom obsessing is soon to begin!
How are you finding the whole ttc experience so far?

Welcome from me too Windswept

Toots, I've kept putting off the docs visit so far, think because I'm scared of finding out something IS wrong I am now thinking that, as its October now, I may give it until the end of the year and if nothing has happened by Christmas, I'll pay docs a visit in New Year. A would be the best Christmas present!

My OH actually mentioned it to docs a couple of months ago (a routine appointment he had as he is on low dose BP tablets). Doc said generally investigations won't be done until couples have been trying for about a year. He did say blood tests would be the first thing, think they may well be at certain points in the cycle. Let me know how docs goes and here's hoping this is your month and you won't even need anything investigating

Thanks for welcoming me! Look forward to sharing my obsessing with you guys!

I have actually been to my doctors - in an appointment about something else I was asked when my last AF came, and I answered and went on to mention that they were irregular and their severity was irregular too. They instantly said to come in to have my bloods taken on CD21 to check for ovulation. No question about how long I'd been trying. Think it may have helped that I discussed ttc with them long before starting, so it would have been on file. Have been back, but not getting bloods done until CD31 - due to length of my cycles (has to be 7 days before AF).

Hope this helps.

As for how I am enjoying the experience... There are highs, and there are lows - I'll leave you to guess which is which!

Cx

Windswept I'll be on cd11 when I go to docs so I guess itll just be for a chat. I think I've read on here before about someone having to go back on cd21. It's scary cos although you need to know if somethings wrong it's not really something you want to hear. I'm taking quite a few vits to try and help things along plus I drink a fair bit of green tea. My lp tends to vary, shortest was 8 days and the longest was 13 so I have a feeling there's a problem there!
Do you take any vits to help things?

I'd only been taking folic acid until yesterday, when I got some preconception multi vitamins for both me and Mr Windswept. The doctor suggested zinc and vitamin D, but advised against too many things. Those were more for the baby's health than for conception though.

I know what you mean about the tests - I just hope that I get a big spike in my BBTs in the next day or two to show that I have ovulated, so that I don't have to.

She ran me through the process if it's not anovulation (which needn't necessarily mean not ovulating every monthm, so multiple CD21 tests would be done) - next would be a keyhole examination of my tubes and if that's okay, next would be a look at Mr Windswept's sperm... I don't want it to get to either of those stages, so pray for a definite ovulation this month, then a positive result in a couple of weeks...

I'd ask about the LP...

Keyhole look at the tubes sounds a bit nerve racking! I think oh is dreading having to give a sample his face was a picture when I said I'm off to the docs first but if I'm ok then it's his turn! But these things have to be done especially as we're both 32 now so if there are problems then the process gets even more drawn out! I really thought this was going to be easy when we first decided to start trying, how wrong was I!

I don't like either of the latter tests - and I know that Mr Windswept will hate having to give a sample... I think it would make him question how much he wants a little un.

It is best to know if there is a problem early, I suppose, but I am not ready to know yet... But I am not up for the waiting game either!
