Well, I am finally starting a journal! I've been thinking of starting one for a long time, but have been hesitant. I don't really want to go into all the gory details, but here are the basics:
I'm 24, TTC for 6 months officially, but I've been off the pill since August 2005. DH is 25 and we've been married for 3 years. We dated for 2 years before getting married. He's my college sweetheart, and I couldn't make it without him. In our wedding vows he said, "I'll be a rock for you to lean on." And he is. I don't know what I would do without him. I had my annual in October and talked then with my doctor about how my cycles were getting longer and longer. He said he thought everything was ok but if I was still having long periods after a few months to come back for some blood work. So, in March I went back. Blood work showed I wasn't Oing, so the doc gave me a script for 50mgs of Clomid. First month on clomid, I still didn't O...so this month I took 100mgs. I'm waiting to O, but today is only CD 11 so I still have plenty of time.
I've been thinking lately, after reading TCOYF that I might be Oing later. That would explain my cycles getting longer and blood work still might not have showed O since it was done on CD 21. This is only my second cycle charting and last month after my progesterone test on CD 21 my doctor said I didn't O that month, so I thought I was out of the game. I stopped charting after that and only started up again right before my period was due. So, I might have even Oed late last month and not known it. So, my plan is to keep charting and checking for O using OPKs this month until very late in my cycle. (Assuming I don't O in a timely manner.) Hopefully I'll O and I won't have to worry about it!!
Right now I'm going to go on and try and get some rest, but I can already tell I'm going to LOVE keeping this journal. I used to keep a journal all through high school and college, so this is right up my alley!!
Thanks for reading!
