Anyone help I came across this calculator were if you put your last period in, it will tell you your next ovulation window (for the following six months )and resulting due date if you were to get pregnant.

I'm sure it was on the baby centre website but can't seem to find it anywhere ! Thanks x

Journey to Baby #1


Hi ladies!

Am I able to join this group? You all seem like such a friendly, supportive group and it would be great to be able to interact with individuals that are going through a journey to baby as well.

Hereís a little bit of background.

Currently 27, married since June 2015, been with my husband since September 2009, diagnosed with PCOS November 2014.

For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to become a mother and I have always wanted to be a young parent. Initially I thought that the best time to start trying would be around a year after our marriage (Fall 2016) but due to certain circumstances that was not do-able. I decided to take that time to consult with a fertility doctor to prepare for when we were in the right situation to start trying and he reconfirmed that I have PCOS. Throughout the re-diagnosis process I was also diagnosed with Vaginismus due to the fact that I experience pain when getting transvaginal ultrasounds, and the fertility doctor was not able to perform an internal exam or the conduct the HSG. Since then (April 2017) I had been visiting a physiotherapist weekly and it has made a world of difference. I was able to get my first pap smear in 6 years, able to properly wear a tampon for the first time in my life, my husband and I have noticed a significant difference with intimacy and I was able to successfully undergo the transvaginal HSG test at the beginning of September. The HSG resulted in no polyps, fibroids, cysts or blockages and we were officially given the green light to start TTCing.

I do not have regular cycles at all (cycles can last over 100 days) and therefore was put on Provera for 10 days to induce my period. I am currently 5 days post my last pill with no sign of my period (other than cramping which I have had since the 2nd-3rd day of taking the pill) and it is making me very nervous. Once I get my period I am to supposed to start Clomid (50mg) from CD 5-9 to see if it makes me ovulate. I am starting to feel very anxious about the whole ordeal and itís only just the beginning. It makes me wonder whether I am really ready for thisÖ especially since it most likely will take more than one try. I just have a feeling that this is a right time but am so scared that its going to take more than the average 1-3 cycles success rate that most PCOS Clomid users achieve. My husband is very supportive and optimistic (and surprisingly the realist in this situation) and tries to reassure me that everything will happen at the right time and that each obstacle we get through is a step in the right direction. I havenít talked to any of my friends or family about starting to TTC because I feel like it will add extra pressure and judgement that I do not want or need.

So sorry for going on a tangent and thank you for taking the time to read it. I really needed to get these things out of my head before I drive myself crazy, although it may be too late for that.

Baby dust to everyone trying!

Hi Anj! Wow! It sounds like you've already been through quite an ordeal! So glad that you're past a lot of that and that you've got the go to start trying. Just waiting on Aunt Flo then, right??

I'm sure there are many ladies here who can chime in about using Clomid and/or getting pregnant with PCOS. I know I've heard from quite a few who have had a story like that in the past via these forums. I personally do not have that connection... but I've had great success with SMEP (Sperm Meets Egg Plan) and using PreSeed. Maybe that can help in conjunction with the Clomid (once Aunt Flo arrives of course).

TTC is daunting... even for those who don't have as much of a mountain to climb. It's so hard when so much is out of our hands. I know it's easier said than done, but do what you can to make TTC fun rather than work. This forum helps with that!

Best of luck to you on your TTC journey, and sending lots of your way!!!

Hello and welcome AnjaaniPari!
This is mostly a WTT group but I'd be happy to add you to our TTC list and we'd be happy to support you on your TTC journey as we have so far with our other members that have graduated from WTT to TTC to even pregnancy and 1 birth.
I hope that Clomid works well for you and it doesn't take long for you to fall pregnant. My DH and I got married in June 2015 as well and conceived our DD the same month.

Think I've only posted on here once or twice. I'm thinking i now wont be TTC next year, too much going on at the moment so i probably wont be TTC until February 2019 that's if we even TTC at all.

Want to say congratulations to all that are pregnant, good luck those TTC and best wishes for those still WTT

Hi Bella!
Thank you for the support! Yes I am still waiting on AF... 11 days since last Provera pill and still no signs. I am debating whether I should call my fertility doctor or not. Is the SMEP where you BD every other day? I haven't looked into too many family planning methods since I didn't think I would have many options with having to resort to fertility treatment.. I figured its pretty much just do as your told by the doctor more or less but maybe that's not the case and I should look into some options.

Thank you for the warm welcome KalonKiki. Are you able to be a part of more than one forum at a time? I have browsed a few of the TTC forums and you are right that there maybe more individuals that have similar jouneys as mine since I am starting on mine now and not Waiting.

Hi Babybump!
Thank you for the kind words Even though I have been off the Provera for 11 days now I am still experiencing cramping and even nausea at night.. It seems very strange to me.. can't wait to move on to Clomid (although I've heard side effect of that can be even worse.. oh well only time will tell and if it gets me to ovulate and conceive then its all worth it!)

Thank you everyone for the support, I really appreciate it as a new TTCer.. takes the edge off a bit!

Hi Anj,

SMEP is where you BD every other day starting on day 8... then on day 10, start testing using OPKs. When you get a positive OPK, BD 3 more days in a row. Skip one day, then BD one more time. Then wait. I did this along with preseed. Both times that I did this method, I got pregnant that (first) month.

And yes! You can absolutely comment on as many forums as you want )

Can I come back in, ladies?

Found out today that we lost the baby - classified as a missed miscarriage. Right now the plan is to wait it out at home and if nothing happens by next week, I'll need to schedule a D&C.

I'm beyond devastated I know know though, even through all this heartache, that DH and I haven't given up hope for having more children. But obviously, we're going to be waiting a bit to heal both physically and emotionally. Today has been quite the rollercoaster, as I suspect the next few weeks will be. I have never done very well with waiting, so I think DH and I will be TTC again once it's physically possible to do so, which may be a few months from what I understand. We're just going to kind of play it by ear and see how it goes.
