(Parents who planned) Trying to conceive, what did you do?
Hello, the S/O and I decided its time to have a baby!! Before I get started here is a little bit of personal info about myself that we think will be making it slightly difficult to conceive. I don’t have regular menstrual cycles. Its in a different week of the month almost every month. My cycle is all over the place, sometimes 28 days, sometimes 43 days, sometimes 32 days. Its never the same. And sometimes it wont even come for months. Currently the longest I’ve gone without one is 6 months. So pin pointing ovulation’s is kind of difficult. I’ve been told that even if I go months with out actually bleeding that I can still be ovulating since I still get the cramps and symptoms during those months. (Not sure if that’s true.) We are currently on our first “2 week wait”. I should have gotten my monthly on (or around) the 27th of Nov. But due to my menstrual history it could just be another one of my irregular cycles. Oh, and I have already started taking Prenatals and Folic Acid.
NO ONE I know had ever planned for their kids so I cant get advice from them about what they did or tried or were told to do to conceive.
(Note: I know I could just go to my local gyno, but I hate her with a passion due to an experience in the past. Actually everyone I know that goes to her hates her. And the other gynos in my town are all kind of… Well, skeevie. So I am trying to put off going to her until I have to.)
So if you wonderful parents that planned your children could be so kind to share with me what you did, whether it was difficult for you or not, we would greatly appreciate it.
