@PacNWxLove:  I understand the frustration.  I am on cycle 2 after being on BCPs for the last 12 years.  The last 5 of which were Seasonique.  I had a 27 day anovulatory cycle after coming off.  I’m currently on CD8 and Fiance left this morning and won’t be home for 10 days.  I’m already wary of wishing away my life two weeks at a time.  We’ve decided to fast-track the wedding plans so that if I do get a BFP soon I won’t be obviously pregnant at the wedding.

I am not real familiar with cycles after getting off the pill except many girls periods can be really wacky and take awhile for them to ovulate again. I think if you ever have concerns for anything go see your OB. Good luck!

@PacNWxLove:  I am in the same boat. I feel like its been one big wait to TTC and now we are its all waiting! 
We needed to wait until after we were married to TTC so I was waiting for the proposal, then the wedding and now finally we are TTC! I have cycles all over the place that regulalry go over 50 days so it feel like most of the time I am waiting for my period to show up. Like  @Sugaree:  says you have to be really careful not to wish your life away. I am organising lots of fun things to do with my Darling Husband that I know I wouldn’t be able to do if we had a little one or were pregnant. Last night we went to a wine tasting event then out to a really fun dinner. I am trying to focus on having fun with my Darling Husband and enjoying the life we have right now. 


I spoke to my doctor about my crazy cycles and she said come back in a year if you are not pregnant. I went to go and see her about 6 months ago and I am glad I did as I can tell a white lie and say we started trying then which means I only have 6 more months to wait before they could run some tests. Otherwise, I will look for a new doctor. 

I hope things work out well for you 🙂

I know the feeling! While we’re not actively TTC at the moment, we’re tracking my cycles. This  one looked to be on track, ovulation at same time as the last one. Went through an immense amount of stress in the last couple of weeks with my mum passing away, and guess who hasn’t arrived yet. AF is MIA – and there would be only the most miniscule chance of it being for a fun reason (the one time we did it during the fertile period, we used protection). I feel bloated and PMSy and keep expecting AF to arrive every time I go to the bathroom.

May be a different wait than the more exciting ones we’re expecting to do in future, but it still sucks.
