I know what you mean about the steps to get ready for bed... it's such a process... Nicholas pretty much has that same bedtime routine (with the addition of reading books) and it takes soooo long to get him through all of it! And then just getting him to settle down... ugh...
So I'm hearing about so many women who are in labor right now... (if it's their time of course)... and I think it's because of the full moon. I truly believe it does have an effect on that sort of thing! I keep thinking that those contractions I had were from the force of the full moon coming. If I'm looking at the full moon for my due date month, it may happen around June 4th. I have thought for a while that this one will be early, somehow "38 weeks" is sticking in my head, so I don't know, but it's interesting to think about. With Nicholas I went into labor on a waxing moon, but I also think it was jumpstarted by my salsa dancing!
Steph- yeah, I read books once in a while but hey have to really hustle and get in bed early for that to happen As far as the moon thing- emphatically yes. I gave birth to my first 3 weeks early because of a full mon. My midwife said all of her close-to-term mothers gave birth that same day some really early. I remember the sound of that hospital wing ! All of us poor women howling in labor pain lol! It was echoing up and down the halls and my midwife would rush in, stick two fingers in to check dialation then rush back out snapping on a new pair of gloves lol. Poor lady
Patrice- that sucks, I hope you are okay It will come. I think your body is setting a nice routine now, hopefully no more long bleeds. But maybe talk to your doc about it? I know with your close temping, dating, and dtd so faithfully you'll bet your bfp soon. Maybe talk to your doc again- I know I have asked before but am wondering if dh soldiers are all swimming the same direction? I know my dh was really worried about it especially with the meds he has to take for diabetes, etc. And I have heard that dtd too often can deplete sperm otility or at least they get tired easily Maybe tell dh a firm "NOT NOW" every other day lol. Try not to worry. You are so strong, but I know from experience it gets really tiresome having to be strong all the time
I'm sorry. Don't think of it like trying anymore. Let nature take it's course, but still be proactive and see the dr one more time to get any more tests done-- like what we were talking about with your progesterone level at 7-10 dpo. Have you considered seeing a reproductive endrocinologist? I know it would probably be more expensive and possibly not covered by your insurance, but you could always just go for a consult and see what they would say, and what they would test for. They can test for an array of things that a regular OB/Gyn doesn't think to test for. Because of expenses, you can always just hear what they have to say and pic and choose the tests you want to do. I just really feel that they would be the ones who would know what to do with your situation from here. Yes, you are young and you have time (which is what many dr's would say) but you've been going on this for a couple of years now... no matter what your age or state of fertility, things should be looked at more thoroughly at this point.
Try not to be discouraged... I know it's hard when you're doing all the right things but it also could just be a little thing that's being overlooked and if you're current dr can't figure it out it might be good to get another opinion.
Patrice, I think Steph gave some great advice Something is definately going on to prevent bfp...either you or dh it's always hard to tell. I know women tend to think it's always them but often it is the man that needs some aid in some form or other. Is dh willing to test? No doubt you will get your bfp one of these days and I think sooner than later but it's always a waiting game.
If you see a fertility doctor, she will probably want to test your DH for a few things too... there is also a mycoplasma test that is typically done on both partners and if either of you are infected (you could be symptomless) you are both treated with antibiotics. I know that is one of the common tests they do on both partners.
