Making myself crazy!

I decided to put this in vents because I wasn't really sure where to put it. I am trying not to make myself crazy with ttc #2. When I became pregnant with DD it happened so fast that I was shocked. How am I making myself crazy? I am trying to remember back to July 2006 (when I conceived) as to what I did compared to what I am doing now. I can't for the life of my figure out what I did and what I am doing wrong now!

I went of the pill in June 2006. AF was a week late in July 2006. I was pregnant by August 2006. This time around, I stopped the pill in June 2009, AF has been 28 days every month except for this one. I am on CD 31 but took an HPT and it was BPN on Friday. Now I think I might have O'd a week late this month but I am really not sure since I don't chart (for fear of making myself even more crazy) nor have I used OPK because I don't want to spend the money.

So what did I do so different in 2006? I think I actually calculated O incorrectly back in 2006 and I got pregnant. Now that I am doing it right, I am on cycle 4 with nothing. I am trying not to stress since I am not in that big of a rush but I would like to be pregnant before June 2010, which would be a year from when I stopped the pill.

Sorry this is so long. But do you think that it might just be taking longer for my body to be getting the pill out of my system?

Any suggestions would be helpful :)

I know it's hard not to obsess and wonder.

Have you tried monitoring CM? I found that to be so helpful! Could be you are not realy sure when you O. With my DD, I O'd around the 14th day, and found with my DS, after 4 months of trying, finally broke down and got an OPK and found I O'd on the 10th day! Totally was missing the day! And I have a 28 day cycle.

I do monitor my CM, which is why I think that I O'd a week later this month then I did the past few months. With DD when I stopped taking the pill in June, AF was a week late the first month I was off the pill. Then the next month I was pregnant. I go to the OBGYN on Friday for my yearly check-up. I am going to talk to her when I go.

I know what you mean about making yourself go crazy. I am TTC number 2. My DH and I said we wouldn't really "try" yet... just not prevent. Well, crazy me is already counting my days and keeping track of CM to some extent. I am on day 32 and no AF and a BFN this morning... how depressing. It took 6 months of "not really trying" to TTC our DD. The 6th month I was temping so while my DH wasn't "really trying" I was starting to try and figure out when I Oed. :)


Anyways, I am already going crazy and we have just started again. I don't know what to do with myself so not to obsess over it. I think I have a problem. ha!


Hope you get preggers soon! :)
