TTC #2 after loss

Well I am fairly new to these boards, but I thought this would be a good way to voice my concerns and feelings. My Dh and I have been together for going on 11 years our first child Nakayla Leann would be 4 this year. We found out at 6 months that she had a severe case of anencephaly I looked into organ donation however it is very hard to find a Hospital that would do it. I ended the pregnancy knowing that watching my first child die would of been to hard for me. I have always wanted children and we have been very slow in going into the process.

I have been on Depo for a good 9 years with a few lapses in there of course I got pregnant one of those. But we have been really steady on the Depo. Well after much thought and crying, I have decided I am ready to try again. I have done much reading and talking with Doc's on this. there is a huge chance the next child could have anencephaly as well. However they can do earlier tests now at 12 weeks. So I am ready to try again. This is where this journal will start. :arrow:

We started really trying last month. I have not started charting yet My cycles have only been regular for 5 months now. I have been off depo for over a year now as well took awhile for AF to show up again. We BD all the time any way so my wishful thinking said hey I don't think I need to chart this should be easy. LOL well maybe it is, but no luck the first time and I want to be a bit more knowing in all that is happening this time.

The first month we did not do anything differently we just had in our heads this time it for a baby. No luck For the first time in 5 months AF came early by several days. Well today is O day in the 2nd month of trying and we have the BD thing down pat. But it took along time for me to get to this point I guess I wish it would just be easier. I am going to start charting and will post all my flubs with it as I start in month number 3. Really wishing I did not have to, but I need to get a Handle on my body.
