Hi! I finally caved and joined the boards
I am 25, newly married (as of November 4th!), we have a son who will be 3 at the end of Feb. The second we were married we said thro the birth control out the window! I had my Mirena removed Oct 4 and sort of did a cycle of the pill... tried but didn't remember a lot of days. We're both very excited and anxious to conceive, and both of us sort of thought it would be instant because my son was unplanned and conceived in a 3 day window.
I love to read and learn about everything I can so I've stumbled upon all kinds of methods of improving our chances. I just started CM monitoring (since my last period) and am already frustrated with it (slight A-type personality so I like things to be very clear and well, it has been very confusing the last week!!). I've had 2 periods since the mirena came out... exactly 3 weeks apart, almost to the minute. So I've used that for my calculations this month... which means I should be ovulating between the 2nd and 6th (already past). I had lots of CM and it was clear but wasn't a very obvious egg-white, now it's changing and I've noticed my cervix has moved somewhat. On top of that I bought an OPK with 7 sticks and was taking each one as soon as I woke up (like it says)... I haven't had a positive yet but I've been reading to test twice a day not just once as I could miss the surge.
Basically I have a lot of information swimming around my head and am just getting myself confused as to what my body is doing I've been waiting for this pregnancy for almost 2 years, and once we decided, waiting got really hard!!
So that's the story!!! Excited to be here
