TTC prayers please

I could use some prayers. I just realized that we've been trying for exactly a year. I don't test my temp or anything I just keep track of things as best as I can with CM and tracking AF. I am very leary of being a 'Sarah" and trying to force God's hand. I know that He knows best for me and my family but I do so want a baby again. I want a normal pregnancy and a happy birth and the chance to try to BF with a baby who can suck. I want Adeliade to have a sibling. I want Mike to have the son he wishes for. With Adeliade it was our first time not using BC that she was conceived.

I trust that if God doesn't want me to conceive then He has a very good reason. But, with AF being late every month and knowing that Mike and I 'know' one another when we think I'm fertile it's hard to not play the -I-have-a-symptom- game durign the 2WW.

I will most definitely be praying (((((((((((((Hugs))))))))))))))

If this isn't BFP month then I do recommend giving temping a try. It's non-invasive and gives you a lot of information to work with. Maybe everything is fine and it's just going to take some time. Maybe it's something little like thinking you are Oing earlier than you really are or a vitamin that can help out. I don't think God minds at all when we seek to have more information- it' not like we are trying to force his hand or could (((hugs)))

I can't remember if you knew me back when we were ttc or when I was CL on the ttc board. We conceived the older 2 easily (like you did with Adelaide) but when we decided to try for #3 we had a hard time. In the first year of ttc we had 2 losses and after that it took 2 more years to get Hannah (so 3 years in all). So I understand a bit about the emotions of waiting, weighing God's will, and deciding if/what we should do if you ever need to talk. I also have a decent little stash of ttc info to help you with over-analyzing should you need that hehehe

I would agree with Angie on the temping, at least maybe for a few months, just so you could see a pattern. I understand not wanting to be a Sarah, and I understand that it makes some people feel obsessed with TTC, but you're already upset without temping. Maybe temping would expose an issue that you didn't know you had, and maybe there's a simple fix. Like maybe you O later than you think you do or something. I use OPK's in conjunction with temping, so I have a really good idea of what my body's doing. I don't O until like cycle day 18, sometimes 19! If I were TTC without temping, I'd probably be baby dancing several days too early, thinking that I O earlier. Anyway, you might try using the OPK's for a few months. If you do, get some cheap ones from ebay.

I've slacked off this month because of travel and stuff, but I've been doing it for several months now. Not to TTC (yet), but just to be informed for when we do. Anyway, there's no way I could go just by my ovulation "symptoms" if we were trying TTC. I usually have only a little EWCM, and last month I had it two days before O, but none on O day, no O pain, etc. So all of this to say, maybe you THINK you know what's going on in your body, but perhaps you really don't.

Nonetheless, I'll pray that you are at ease with God's plan for you as a mother, and that you can handle AF if and when she shows up!

Are your cycles getting longer each month? Mine were both times I went off BC, so the first time we were TTC I was given a referral to an OB after 6 months (rather than just seeing my family doc until the year mark). I was given Clomid and that jump-started my system - it seemed to be a bit lost after having been on BC for so long.

I would talk to your doc, see what he/she has to say. In the meantime, we're all praying for peace of mind. The doc who prescribed the meds for me told me that sometimes our brains can get in the way of our reproductive systems so maybe all this wanting and hoping is sending stress signals and not allowing the baby creation to begin. Stinks, but perhaps that's one of God's reminders that we need to rely on Him and His timing.

I pray peace over the situation and that you would have freedom from any bondage in this whole area....I pray that God would take captive your thoughts, and that even though you are marking a year of trying, he would reward you very very soon!!!

Thanks everyone! I really think I have several things going on. First obesity. Which causes me to have "normal" fevers 99.1-99.3 daily. Second I have some possible signs of menopause (although I know that as long as I'm getting my period, there's hope). I do feel bette today. I think I might visit the TTC board soon. Angie I'd love more info. I honestly don't know where to begin with temping or test kits (are you supposed to do it everyday?) Am I crazy to want another little one when we are so poor?

I don't think you're crazy at all. And I encourage you to voice those concerns when you pray. A better financial situation may be on its way and a healthy babe to be a great brother or sister to Adelaide. :)
