Here now :)

Well if you've read my posts on the October board, you'd know I have been going crazy over TTC #4. lol. It's been over a year since I've been off Depo, and a long road of TTC. Depo has made my AF's real wacky. I think they are finally evening out. Last cycle was 29 days. I am more hopeful this time around. Kinda TMI but yesterday I felt some CM and I thought it was AF coming early (sometimes it's every 10 days! ugh!) but nope, just CM. You'd think after 3 boys I'd know this already, but I always forget. So I googled what this extra CM was. And it was saying it was a sign of ovulation! So Hubby was sleeping and I woke him up and DTD lol. I am excited because the entire last year we've been trying, I've never noticed a sign of ovulation before. So I am hoping this is it. Now, we DTD on cycle day 11, BUT if history has any indication, I tend to ovulate early. DS1 was born 5 days before his EDD, DS2 4 days before his EDD, and DS3 8 days before his EDD. So I am going to test in a couple weeks. Hopefully this is it! Smile I've been so bummed getting BFN's, that I was almost going to give up TTC#4 but I had a conversation with my BFF and she reassured me to not give up. Smile If I DO get my precious #4 this month, EDD will be November 5th. With my babies always coming a few days early, there would be a good chance the baby would be born on Halloween, one of my favorite holidays! Smile So I am excited to POAS and I wish us all the best of luck in getting our BFP's! Smile

Wishing you tons of luck with TTC baby #4. I have heard some terrible things about coming off the depo and how it can muck up your fertility for a long time after the last shot.

Thanks Smile Yes, Depo is great for BC, but terrible for TTC. Sad I was on it before DS1 and it took a year and a half for us to conceive him. With DS2, I was using NuvaRing and it only took 6 months to conceive him. It took I think around a year to get pregnant with DS3. I think I was on Depo again then too. and def. after baby #3, I thought I wouldn't get the baby fever for a long while so I got back on depo again, and sure enough got the baby fever after he was only a few months old lol. I knew it would take a long time to wear off, last shot was in December 2011, but i was hoping it wouldn't that THIS long again. But we shall see. Smile

Good luck! Things sound positive! I was also on Depo, and it has really messed with AF as well. Which is very weird for me because I have always been a perfectly oiled machine when it comes to AF. I went on just the pill for two weeks and AF showed up in full force! So I'm hoping for a BFP this month! Smile Sticky Vibes!!
