- Anything you did different the month you conceived?
<br /><br /><br />
Age: 39, 38 when I conceived
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 🙂
Tagging to follow.
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.
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.
Cycles trying: 2
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.
Anything different: I was using opks and preseed and we did it every day for about 12 days straight.
Cycles trying: 2 (but we didn’t hit the fertile window at all the first month)
Birth control: not for years
Anything different: we hit the fertile window! Also charting, opks, preseed, and maca
Weight: ~140 (size 4-6)
Cycles: 0? Got pregnant 2 mo off birth control
Birth Control: 10 years
Anything different: not really, began taking a prenatal before I went off BC
MONTHS TRIED: 3 cycles/8 months
Were you taking birth control right before trying to concieve? Nope
Anything you did different the month you conceived? I didn’t want to be pregnant for our trip to Florida, so we actually stopped trying the cycle month we conceived.
