- Wedding: June 2012
My husband and I were going to wait until June (a year after the wedding) to TTC, but I decided we should start early for a number of reasons, namely because he is a sailor and my cycles are irregular, a combination that could make conceiving quite difficult. For a while he was saying we should wait 2-3 years but I have been trying to explain to him some of the finer details, that it’s not as easy as he may think. We could be trying for a while. Last night after going through my latest BBT chart with him and explaining more things, he said, ok, let me know when you’re good to go and we’ll try. I just started my period so this will be our first cycle! I’m so excited, I just HAD to share!
As I mentioned, my cycles are a bit irregular. I have had 8 full cycles this year, and two of them had luteal phases shorter than 10 days, which, as I understand, is not long enough to achieve pregnancy. I have been off the pill and charting for a year which has helped show me that my cycles, though still irregular, have some pattern to them. in 5 of 8 cycles, I ovulated between days 22 and 26 and 5 were between 33 and 39 days so fairly consistent.
I feel I may be oversharing here but I am just so excited to join the club! 🙂
