Age: 39, 38 when I conceived

weight: 195

month trying: conceived on cycle 4, had a MC at 6 weeks, waited 1 cycle, got pregnant on third cycle. Am currently 22 weeks 2 days

birth control: yep, for almost 18 years prior

did differently: my doctor put me on oral progesterone for a short luteal phase (and because that is what likely caused the MC). Conceived the cycle I started the progesterone 🙂

Weight: too much (size 20)

Months Trying: 0* Got pregnant the first and only time we ever screwed up our birth control

Birth control: nothing hormonal for 10 months prior to getting pregnant

 

*I hope it’s okay to chime in, since we weren’t “trying,” but since you asked about weight I wanted to show that being overweight is not always a hinderance to fertility.

POUNDS: 125

MONTHS TRIED: 2 months of not being “safe” & 1 month of really trying.

Were you taking birth control right before trying to concieve? No, I stopped taking the pill about 8 months before trying.

Anything you did different the month you conceived? I was charting CM, temping, used Preseed, and we did the deed for 14 days straight to make sure we didn’t miss our window lol We meant business.

Birth control: I had been on birth control for many many years – depo shots, then 2 mirenas. I got pregnant the first cycle after my first real period after I gotmirena out. I didn’t have periods on Mirena.
