I have been super busy traveling all around to be with family during the holidays. I just got back from going down to see my side of the family finally. I have been trying not to think about ttc, but not being very successful. A 21 year old co-worker of mine just blurted out that he thinks his girlfriend of 1 and a half WEEKS is pregnant, because she has been sick and throwing up for the past few days. How in the world is that possible? I want to say that if she is actually pregnant that it isn't his, but on the weird off chance that I am wrong I don't want to be the jerk to blurt it out and ruin everything. I am just mad he would just out and randomly say this to me when he knows that I have been ttc for a year. Not to mention this was followed by him saying his girlfriend wants him to move in with her and him saying that if he moves in with her and splits the rent he would have more money to spend on weed. HOW does someone like that just have these little blessings just fall into their lap and act like it's no big deal? I feel bad for being mad at him, but who reacts like this to a child? He is so nonchalant about EVERYTHING in life. Not to mention he already has a 6 year old that lives with his parents. Man I am very annoyed with myself right now for being so judgemental about this.
I understand you being frustrated about that. It always seems people that shouldn't be having kids get pregnant so easily my dh's step sister already has two kids and she is only 20. And both time she acted like she didn't know she was pregnant until she was 6 months along. I hated that she was "accidentally" getting pregnant while I tried so hard and couldn't. So I totally understand why you feel the way you do
Michelle I know what you mean about feeling angry about people who probably shouldn't be raising children. It seems like pregnancy comes so easily to those who can be irresponsible. It's completely normal for you to be angry and jealous in your situation. Hang in there. It's going to happen for you and you will be abl to provide a much happier and healthier home than that co worker ever could. Hopefully they won't be having any children any time soon and you will. I hope you had a great time traveling and visiting your family and I hope you are doing well. Let us know how you get on at the specialist! Fx'd they get those ovaries in working order and get a baby cooking!
Bean, congrats on your new baby girl! We are doing well so far, I think. I had some really crazy hormones the first two weeks making me really emotional but I think I've been doing much better. Raising a new baby is a huge adjustment and scary but a joy at the same time. Breastfeeding was so difficult for me in the beginning but it has seemed to get somewhat better and we are doing ok now.I still sometimes doubt myself but I have a seemingly happy and healthy baby so I can't be doing so badly. We are just so in love with out little girl and I couldn't imagine life without her now. I just hope that we can continue to do well and get on a better schedule because Caitlyn's days and nights are still a bit mixed up. So I have to say that we are enjoying our little girl but still adjusting. I hope you are doing well!
Rachel hope you are well! Feels like only yesterday I was as far along as you! Any bump pics?
So luckly my coworkers girlfriend had a visit from aunt flow, so I guess he got lucky. As for me, my fertility appointment is tomorrow and I really hope that my doctor can figure things out. I am afraid that everything will come across normal and the ultrasound will look 100% perfect. I feel weird hoping something is off, but something HAS to be wrong for me to not be able to have a period or ovulate on my own.
Also, I came to the conclusion that I defintely have to have a boy now that three of you have girls I am so glad that all three of you have healthy baby girls, because i know that all of you were in my shoes at some point.
I'm back from the doctor. She said that they like to see three consecutive ovulatory cycles on clomid before they think that maybe there are other issues. I only ovulated the first, third and maybe the fourth cylce on clomid. She wants me to ride out this cycle, and then start provera about the last week of January after I take a pregnancy test. After I start my period, then I have to schedule an hsg dye injection test to make sure my tubes aren't blocked, and an ultrasound to make sure I don't have any cysts. After those two tests, she will start me on femera to make me ovulate... so I'm guessing I won't be ovulating until March. Hopefully time flys by like this past year did.
