Hi. I have been posting and lurking for so long, that I decided to start this journal....I usually do it the 'old fashioned' way, but I always on Preg.org, so why not do it here?!
I am 31 and Dh (Jon) is 33. We have two amazing children. Alexis, 3 1/2 and Ryan 21months.
I am one of those women who has both taken a LONG time and a short time to get pregnant. It took over a year to get pregnent with Alexis. After LOTS of testing, and a variety of drugs....We conceived after two months of Provera and Clomid. and with Ryan, we got pregnant right away the first month we started, with Provera and Clomid.
For me, its my periods.....I don't get them very often. After Ryan I went on the IUD because I did not want the hormones of the Pill.....and now I am VREY worried about the small amount of hormone in the IUD itself. I got the IUD just over one year ago and I have not had a period since May of LAST YEAR! That is not normal. My Doc had said that your period become lighter and shorter, like spotting, but when I say nothing...I mean NOTHING! No Spotting, not even pink discharge! So I am WAY nervous about this.
I get my IUD out tomorrow, which I am so excited for. We were going to wait one more year before we TTC #3, but we decided to go for it now....for a few reasons: first, Jon is in school and will graduate with his MBA next spring. We don't know if he can get a job here, so we have decided to open the job search ANYWHERE...scary, and we want to have MY Doc for this last baby of ours, and have all of our children in CT where we live now. Also, is the health insurance thing.....either we have the baby under his insurnace now, or we wait to TTC until AFter he gets a job, due to the 'preexisting condition" thing. Stupid. and last but not least......DH's father daid in January. He was only 58 and many many of his dreams were never realized. It is/was very sad. and it made us realize thatlife it too short to be planning for life.....you have to LIVE your life! KWIM?!
So, here we go again. I hope to see a BFP this summer so that the baby would be born next spring (before August when we lose health insurance).
I'll let you know how it all goes tomorrow after the IUD removal. :?
