Trying to Conceive

Setting my own destiny

I am 29 years old and will be 30 this coming June. My husband and I have been married for three years and have tried to conceive on and off for the past two years. I say on and off because I have very irregular periods. This past year I went nine months w/o a period. High stress caused me to stuff my face uncontrollably and before you know it I'm @ my heaviest weight. I was told by a doctor that losing weight will help regulate my periods. Sigh.... I didn't know it would be so hard to get pregnant.

Getting pregnant

well my boyfriend and i have been trying to concive for a few months and nothing has worked out.

Well the doctor wants to put me on fertility drugs but i dont have any troubble ovulating.

though we have jus decided not to try everyday!
We have been having sex everyday of the month hoping to get pregnant

Then i realized it takes a few days for the sperm to mature
So this month were just going to have sex on my most fertile days.

We have the ovulation kit and my boyfriends taking tablets to help his fertility.

so hopefully this month we concieve!!

Dear Midwife,
I am a independent and successful woman of 21 years old. I have been trying for a child now for 3 years, with 3 different partners. I know some people would not agree with this but I want a child so much. Two of the partners had children from previous relationships.

Length of Cycle Changed After D&C

Dear Midwife,
I had a D&C in November after I miscarried due to a blighted ovum at 8 weeks. My cycles prior had always been a 28 day cycle give or take a day without fail. Since my surgery I have had cycles of 34 days.

Is it normal for my body to have adjusted in this manner? I am TTC again, so I just want to make sure this is ok because it is terribly frustrating.

My fiancee and I have been together for 3 years. I have not been actively trying to get pregnant just lettng nature take it's course, except I think she missed a step and hit basement level.... I had a regular period April 07, then nothing I take HPT's and go see the family doc, but nadda. Then in Sept 07 I start and think ok everything is back from vacation. but then I don't stop. I bled from early sept til late Nov. Once again, HPT's and Family Doc. Nadda, Late November I start carmping really bad and I'm having to change clothes ever other hour.

My ovulation date is 2/25/09 this wednesday I'm nervous because I hope we get pregnant the first try I dont want this to turn out to be a stessful thing for us. So far baby making has bought us closer making love has been fun and exciting since there seems to be a goal behind it.
