MY FIRST BLOG!! WELL, MY HUBBY AND I HAVE BEEN TTC SINCE MAY O8. WITHOUT THE HELP OF FERTILITY DRUGS, I DON'T OVULATE. I HAVE BEEN ON BOTH CLOMID AND FEMARA, BOTH TAKEN WITH PROGESTERONE AND DEXAMETHASON. IT ALL MADE THINGS A LITTLE BETTER. HOWEVER, I STILL DON'T HAVE FOLLICLES LARGE ENOUGH TO PRODUCE IMPREGNABLE EGGS. I WAS GETTING ULTRASOUNDS DAY 10 OF EVERY CYCLE. SO LAST THURSDAY I HAD AN ULTRSOUND. THE NEXT DAY THE DOCTOR CALLED BACK. IT WAS A TOTAL SHOCK. SHE SAID THAT THE TREATMENTS SHE HAS GIVEN ME ARE NOT WORKING FOR ME AND THAT IS ALL SHE CAN DO.

Dear....

Me and my husband are just startig out and the past weeks I have been just reading about "understanding my fertility", "how to conceive" etc..I feel I am pretty much getting the hang of it but now I am finding I have understood the TTC knowledge that i'd needed and now its the matter of "when"..
I am tracking my temp everyday, I am following my chart, I am taking my CF readings properly
So, when would you say, I go about reading on pregnancy?? "What happens when ur pregnant"
"How to care for the baby"
"How to bring up the chid"
When do I start reading up on all of that?

QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
My husband and I are now planning for a baby very soon and want to get our bodies in shape both mentally and physically. I am uncertain if I should join a gym for physical fitness.

Our daily course of work is not physically demanding. My husband is very active in his gym training and has been doing weights for months. I, on the other hand, have been very lazy but I want to do some sort of a physical exercise now. My body mass weight is in proportion to my height. I'm 5'6 and weigh 58kgs.

I really like dance-aerobics or aerobics...

The Whole Journey

After only 18 months of being on birth control pills (five different types), I have given up on it. The first two gave me unbearable cramps and sore breasts. The third one made me a total emotional wreck for half the month. The fourth and fifth gave me migraines every day. Dh and I really thought long and hard about the choice to go off of it. We have been married a little over 5 months, and because of my age (32), we want to start TTC in the next few months. That's the background, which leads me to today.

I can't remember the rest of the words to the song (to my blog title), but it's exactly how I feel when it comes to trying to have a baby. This is my first blog entry ever. I thought I would do this to get my feelings out there because I can't quite find a blog from someone who has gone through what I have. Maybe by doing this I will connect with someone who understands what I'm going through. All of the fertility blogs I have read are either by someone who has gone through far worse than I have, or someone who was infertile when I started reading, but is now blissfully pregnant.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Hi I am a 28 year old mother of 3. I have all boys, recently my husband and I have decided that we
would like to try for a girl.

I last received the Depo Provera shot in April. I started to ovulate in October, and so far I have been pretty regular. What are my chances of becoming pregnant soon?
