    Default Waiting for our turn

    Maybe by writing things down it will help take some of the stress off ttc. For anyone reading this who doesn't know or reconize me, Im Kelly-25, im married to a wonderful man and father, Stevon-31. We have a beautiful little girl, Katy-21mths. Dh also has 3 children from his first marriage, Sara-8 Sean-6 and Savannah 5, they also live with us full time.
    We have been actively ttc #5 since feb/2005, but unfortunately have had no luck. I have had very irregular cycles since coming off of the nuvaring. Im not sure what is causing my periods to be so screwy, I first thought it was stress, but I have not been stressed for almost 8 mths now. I have put off going to the dr's bc Im worried what she will tell me. I know that I need to lose some weight, which im sure has something to do with it. I also need to cut back on my soda/caffeine intake, which im working on now. I bought some caffeine free/diet pepsi and it isn't that bad. Im going to try and loose some of this weight before I go to the dr's. When I go, Im going to talk to her about getting something to help with ovulation since it seems im not. Im hoping to be pg before christmas time, that would be a great present for our families.
    Sean said the other day that he would like a baby brother bc he has too many sisters he is such a cutie. I told him he'd have to ask his daddy. At first I was really hoping for a boy, but at this point I don't care what the sex is as long as I am able to have another baby and he/she is happy and healthy. Here's hoping.

    Thanks for reading!

    Not sure if I O'd or not, I chose not to buy opk's or hpt's this time around. Im just letting things happen. I have had cramping and such last week and we did but I really dont expect to be pg this mth. I will be utterly surprised if it does happen. TTC is one of the hardest things to do, and it should be so easy. I hope that everyone who truly wants a child becomes pg soon. I know its not easy, and I don't see how some women go through cycle after cycle with no luck. I've only been doing this for about 8mths and its unbearable at times. I see some of my friends get pg, and even strangers and I just cry. I told my husband that it's unfair that someone like his ex, who had no problem getting pg, did so and just gave them up and someone like me, who wants a baby, to raise it, and love it, is having difficulities. I pray almost daily that it happens soon, and I guess only time, and GOD will know when.

    Well, im totally surprised...I woke up today and has arrived. It's only been 34 days since my LMP and my periods have been around 50-something days, so needless to say Im excited. I hope this means that my cycles are getting back to normal and it means our ttc will be a short one. Dh thinks I started bc we early this morning, which could be true i guess..wouldn't be the first time. He said "see, told ya it was gooood" :rofl: he is a nut. Anyway, Im just happy i started.

    I am starting to get really excited about ttc this mth. Like having my AF show up early, or ontime rather, is a sign. I went to the dollar tree last weekend and noticed they FINALLY have opk's..Im going to stock up on them in a wk or so. If it all works out, I *should* ovulate around the 20th, if we catch the eggy my edd will be July 10th. We kinda skipped june altogether. I think having both mine and dh's bdays in june is enough for us LOL! I'm just feeling really hopeful this time. And one of the girls on my birthboard may also be on the july board, Shannon !!!
    I'm going to stop drinking as much soda, and drink more water...I will also be using the preseed, hopefully it will work i've heard pretty good things about it. I have read that you should start bding atleast 3 days prior to ovulating, instead of waiting until you get the pos. opk. that may be why were not having any luck, we have been waiting until I get a pos, then bd. I would love to be able to tell my parents over thanksgiving if we are pg. I hope my dad will be around to see the next one, but with the way things are going you never know. I get depressed thinking about it, he puts on a brave front for us kids, but i know that he is hurting. I don't know what my mom is going to do if something happens. I don't think her heart can take all this stress. Anyway, just an update.

    I'm glad that I have my period, but these cramps have got to go. I haven't had cramps like this in a long while. Anyhoo, I guess I shouldn't complain, esp if it means I could get pg this mth. Just a few more days and then I will start temping and charting again.

    CD3- cont. from above

    I'm still tired, but managing to stay awake...atleast until the kids go to bed. Ugh! so much to do and I soo dont feel like doing it.
    It seems like my period is "tapering" off, I have barely even noticed I was on it. Why do you get sooo hormonal during af??? Last night I couldn't wait for dh to get home cause i was soooo in the mood, but when he got home and it was time for bed, I got pissy and didnt want to anymore. I thought about jumping him after he went to sleep though, but I fell asleep too LOL!
    I look at my baby and I know that I am blessed. I love her soooo much, and I sometimes wonder how I could love another child as much as I love her. I often think about if i get pg, will I feel differently. Its complicated but i know that I will love the next one just like I love katy. I didnt know just how much until I had her. She is my life and I cannot imagine if anything **GOD forbid** happened to her. GTG! bbl.

    CD5 {I didn't write for cd4, but thats ok this entry will be for cd4 and I will write more later on.}
    My period has all but stopped I am sooo excited to start ttc this cycle. Ugh, I hate it when I get distracted...I just stopped typing to write out a chk for the water bill :rofl: Anyhoo, since we get a chk this wknd, Im going to go to the dollar tree and get some tests, I think I will only get the opk's for now and then go back later on to get the hpt's. Im hoping these tests are accurate and I dont miss my surge. I am soo hoping and praying we get pg this mth. Like I said before, I feel kinda hopeful about this.
    We have been bding the past couple of nights, and while it is great, I keep getting frustrated bc he comes first and then I can't well, not during intercourse anyway, he always "finishes" me afterwards if I didnt during, which is nice. Well not much more going on, going to go watch some tv until dh gets home

    Went to the dollar tree store and got some opk's..Im hoping they work well. I only bought a few to try, and I'll buy some more this weekend when I really need them. I will start testing on wednesday and test every day until I get my +. We had fun last night, we stayed up late playing monopoly and then afterwards LOL! Nothing much going on, kids driving us crazy but all is good.
    We are taking them to the pumpkin patch on friday, Im sure they will have fun. I didn't get much sleep last night, so tonight I plan on going to be early, well earlier than normal LOL! Katy fell asleep on the way home from the store tonight, and so we just layed her down so she is just now getting up and eating her dinner. I dont like for her to eat this late, but she was sooo tired, so I figure it wouldn't hurt this one time. I've never seen a kid who loves peas as much as Katy does. She could eat them all day if we'd let her She is such a good girl, we call her our little drama queen bc she throws fits and will fall on the floor and cover her face its cute, but I hope it doesnt last long. Well, gotta go..hopefully I will get my + opk soon

    I *try* to write everyday, but sometimes I get busy and forget. It's getting about that time for me to start testing for ovulation I started up my chart again, which Im hoping will help. Last mth I didnt temp/chart or use opk's..I didn't even buy any hpts, which is rare for me LOL!

    On a different subject, today was parent/teacher conference day and so we met with the kids' teachers. They are doing great and the only thing Sean's teacher said was that he talked to much "welcome to our world" LOL! he is a jabbering little kid I'm glad that they are doing well and Sara's teacher is great about communication, which is realy important to me.
    I am so glad that the cooler weather is here, I was getting sick of all the heat, although I do like it bc I love swimming. We are going to the gym this weekend...I've got to lose as much as possible by christmas. I've already lost quite a bit, but I would like to lose more. We are getting family pics done soon and I want to try and look nice.
    It's about time for me to go to bed, I've got alot to do today and even more to do this weekend. Hope you all reading has a great day!
