Trying to Conceive

So really? You here the word period and secretly cringe, or maybe not secretly! But for me it has a whole different meaning!! It means, I have one down, one more to go! Before I can start trying that is! I was never so disappointed when my Dr told me I had to wait 2 whole periods! I thought oh man 2 whole months? Then I most likely wouldn't get pregnant for another 6 or so, needless to say I was upset, but would rather have a healthy baby, than a fast one. So I agreed, and went on. Well you can imagine my surprise when I woke up Friday morning to the awful gift!!

Goodbye birth control!!!

Well today I did it! I went up to my drs office and had the mirena birth control removed, I was so scared that it was going to hurt or that I would have some symptoms I read about, but all it was a bunch of cramping, and very light bleeding!! Now I am on my way to making babies!! It all seems so real now! My dr told me to wait at least 2 periods before trying to conceive, so I guess we are going to go with that, even though my excitement is almost to much to bare!!We picked out a girl name for sure last night, it will be Piper Jane, Jane for my grandma who passed away in 2008 of cancer.

My husband and I have been together for almost five years now, and married for almost 4. We found out we were pregnant with our first child Hanna five months after we had been together, needless to say we moved way to fast for a couple who were barely in our twenties. Back then we were just stupid kids thinking the world was at our fingertips and that nothing could slow us down, we learned otherwise the day the pregnancy test said pregnant. Now my daughter is three and the light of our lives, she makes everyday worth all the struggle we went through and all the worries and fears we had.

April 28th

Well today starts the cycle, I started today, according to my calendar I should ovulate around the 9th of May possibly to the 16th. So here goes round one. I have never had trouble concieving in the past but it has been almost 9 years since my last child and things have changed. I am excited and ready for the journey.

Me and my boyfriend have been trying to get pregnant for the last month, and I haven't been on any type of birth control prior to trying to conceive, other than using condoms. I don't have any medical history that could cause me not to get pregnant. So I have missed my period, and have cramp pains almost like I'm going to get my period, but it doesn't come.


My husband and I have been together for four years and have been married for a year and a half. Now that i've graduated from nursing school we have decided that is time to try and have a family. We tried in January. I'm not sure what my exact fertile widow is. My last period was jan 8th and we tried between the 15th and the 24th about 5-6 times.I took a test today and it was negative. My period is due around the 5th to the 7th.

Does Soy and Soy Products Negatively Affect Fertility and Preconception Time?

This question might be interesting for vegans consuming soy products, and generally people who eat soy and are trying to conceive a baby.

Connection between soy and infertility or decreased fertility is somehow cemented in my mind, I am not sure why, but there must be a reason, right?

So, I decided to make a little “research”, and in this article I have listed the main premises I have learned. I hope you will enjoy reading it, and perhaps learn something new.
