Okay.. a lot of you guys know me. Here's my situation... DH had the big V in late March (spring break for our kids so he could heal without the boys around--I took them to MIL's). His first check 6 weeks out (really was closer to 7 cause he's a guy and put it off) came back fertile. No numbers given to us, just told to recheck in 6 weeks. 10 weeks later (I think) he finally redoes the test. Mid August, got the results back as not fertile. The urologist cleared him.
I have been breast feeding DD for almost 15 months now. Prior to DH's big V, I was on depo. I had 2 shots and just didn't get the 3rd one cause it was due 2 months after DH's big V, and we chose to risk it. With me still full time nursing (every 3 hours around the clock), we figured chances on my end were slim, and chances on his were decreasing exponentially.
Fast forward to now. DH's clean check was 3 months ago. Baby Evie will be 15 months on the 29th. She is now averaging 1 night feeding and nurses 4 times a day for about 5 minutes. She was night weened for 2 weeks, but got sick and I've been appeasing her, waiting for the right time to cut the one out again.
Almost 15 months PP and still no first PPAF! I am going CRAZY!!
I have a slew of symptoms, the most disturbing is the smell of kitty litter every where (we don't own a cat box) and the taste of dentist gloves that at first was just after drinking Mango juice, then Lemonade, then OJ, and now, after eating things and as I sit here not eating or drinking anything, I taste it!
I snuck a two pack Kroger brand test box into my grocery cart a few days ago, and tested. First one on Monday, second one yesterday. They are +/- pink dye and look EXACTLY like Equate, but without the Equate word on them. I have NO idea when (or if) I ovulated... but the tests are stupid, and I think they just suck. Here's a pic of yesterdays:
Both yesterday's and Mondays's the horizontal (neg) line started fading as soon as the urine came into contact with it.. before the test time was up. within the 10 minutes, the horizontal line was almost gone. Since they have both dried, I can see a faint vertical line (which I'm calling an Evap).
Then I noticed the box saying "the day your period is missed". So.. It might be too early for that, based on previous pregnancy's and their symptoms.
I went all out crazy and ordered a combo pack of Wondfo OPK's and HPT's on Amazon with prime 2 day shipping. I ordered them yesterday. They haven't even shipped yet and the "arrival date" is WEDNESDAY!! WTF?? 2 day shipping... The fact that this has me crazy PROVES how much of a POASaholic I am!
Call me paranoid, with our current state of fertility on both mine and his parts it would be a miracle to get pregnant, but at least I get to pee on more tests.
So, stay tuned for more tests pics...
