My name is Dannielle and I am 30 yrs old. My fiance and I have finally made the decision to start TTC our first child, and I couldn't be more excited. I've wanted a family for as long as I can remember.
I have had irregular periods for years. I'm overweight and assume that it's a major contributing factor to my irregularity. I had gone on birth control a few years ago to regulate my periods better, but stopped October of 2009 to see if my body would adjust to a normal routine. And it didn't. I've had months without periods, months with spotting, and even months with TWO periods (lucky me). Most of the time my cycle has run between 43 and 60 days. I'm assuming that I have not been ovulating.
Then something AMAZING happened... I got my period on December 20th and then on January 16th (this year)!!!! And then I got it AGAIN on February 21st!!!! Two months with 'regular' periods. I also think i had EWCM. I bought an OPK kit, and tried to use it but only got faint negative lines. I think I may have tested too late. I'm trying to use these again this month.
In this same timeframe, my fiance agreed to start TTC. I feel like everything is coming together. Like maybe it was meant to be this way. (at least that's what I'm hoping).
I am currently using OPKs and waiting to see if i ovulate. I could really use some friendly support, advice, and opinions from everyone out there
