  • poll: What's the ideal season to have a baby if you could choose?

    Winter - Holiday babies are the best!

    Spring - Pretty weather for those stroller walks!

    Summer - My baby would be a beach baby!

    Fall - Pumpkins, leaves changing and newborns are a great combo!

    MrsZapatos:  DH and I sought help after 6 months. I was 27 he was 34.  If something seems wrong, there is no reason to wait.  DH’s parents had a hard time conceiving so after 6 months we wanted to touch base just to see, we started with DH  (semen analysis) but I would definitely bring up your long cycles with your doctor, maybe even try to get a referral from a Reproductive Endocrinologist (fertility specialist).  We ended up having MFI (male factor infertility) and were able to get a head start on changes that would eventually get us a BFP (cycle 11 of trying got us pregnant!).

    MrsZapatos:  I’d see a doctor now. If it’s been that long sonce BC and you’re not ovulating reguarly/or with that long of cycles then something is probably up. Besides 33 may not be 35, but it’s close, especially if you want more than one kid.

    Hi Ladies, Can I officially join this group? I’m close to 6 mos : ( Cycles/months trying:  3/5  Current CD/DPO:  CD22  Chart (if you have one):  

     http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/MrsZapatos

      Any known issues?  Long, irregular cycles since stopping pill  Supplements/medications: Pregnitude, EPO  Next steps? maybe clomid  FOR FUN: What’s your favorite holiday and why? X-mas, it’s a huge family deal for us <br />Thank you all for your help. I saw a doctor today. She has ordered CD 21 bloodwork (tomorrow). I’ve had some bloodwork (thyroid, FSH, estrogen) and and an u/s already. I didn’t really like the other doctor. This one seems nicer. She says it is possible I may have PCOS even though I don’t fit the typical profile. Also it appears like my estrogen might be low, like it was at the very bottom of the reference range. She is going to check my testosterone, progesterone and prolactin in addition to rechecking the other horomones. She seems to be pushing clomid for me and feels pretty confident it would work. My insurance doesn’t cover fertility and I doubt my husband would be interested in paying for clomid and a bunch of u/s exams and such out of pocket. I don’t know if any insurance covers this stuff. I’m self employed an just buy my own insurance. Anyway, I keep you all posted on what I find out.

    I guess it is good and bad that this board isn’t active.  I thoght I missed it with the filters covering some of the posts for me.

    Anyway, I posted this on the April POAS but thought I would post here too if anyone has any insight:

     

    Sunday was such an off day for me.  I blame it on the lack of sleep (only 2-3 hours).  I had cramps all day sunday which was CD19.  I originally thought I O’ed around CD 18/19.  But this month after using OPKs, I found I O around CD13.  Going back through my notes, I find that I probably O’d CD13 other cycles and just assumed it was too early before.  But matching it to BD we never had bad timing either way.

    So since I’ve probably O’ed around CD13 and get cramps around CD18 I am assuming that is not related to implantation at all since I am still not pregnant.

    Anyway, my real question is:

    DH has an SA on 3/31.  It’s the only appointment he could get that matched his schedule.  Techincally AF is due on 4/2.  Last cyle was only 27 and I started spotting on CD23.  I’m so afriad AF is going to show up early again.  If DH ends up being the problem, then I guess timing doesn’t matter.  But if he checks out clear and it seems I am the problem, will it be too late at that point to figure out something for my next cycle with my gyn? How early do you start?  Gyn mentioned clomid or talking to a fertility specialist. 

    Should we just wait until we get DH’s test results back and then see what to do or should I be doing something in the meantime?

    ajillity81:  Personally I’d move on just as you would have if you assume his results are fine. That way you don’t lose any time. You can alter your plans from there if you find out otherwise.
