Hello, new here and had some questions

Hi, my name is Lynzi and I actually posted before, but I still had questions and thought I'd introduce myself. I am going to be 31 this month and my boyfriend and I have decided to start trying again after a miscarriage.

Sorry Lynzi to hear about your loss. I don't know anything about the shot but I do know there's a ttc after miscarriage board & I'm sure the lovely ladies over there may have more insight...

Personally, I chart my bbt & cm & use opk's to narrow down my fertile window. I try & start bd'ing about 5 days before my projected O date & bd until I've confirmed ovulation.

Ttc is tough but it's important to try & not psych yourself out too much. Stress won't help you get a bfp & can actually hinder it so it's important to find ways to relax & distract yourself. Venting your frustrations here is a great outlet -especially since most of us are private about who we share our ttc efforts with in the real world and since as much as we love our dh's or so's, they don't always "get it"...

Good luck! Fx'd for speedy & sticky bfp :)

HI Lynzi, I want to start by saying I'm sorry for your loss. I don't know anything about the shot either, but I think Angela has done a pretty good job of answering your other questions.

As for not getting psyched out, I think charting will be a good tool. Once you get to know your body better you'll be able to understand more about what it's doing and how to get it to do what you want. For me personally I don't POAS, but that's just me.

So welcome to the board and I hope you find everything you are looking for. I wish you a short and sweet journey to your BFP!

ME 34 SO 31 TTC #1 since September/08 First appointment with RE October/10 HSG November/10 - Left tube blocked Unblocked March 17/11 Fimbriae are gone though SA December/10 - 1% Morphology Swim Up SA January 2011 - Morphology is 13% doctor says is

Hi Lynzi, welcome to the board! I'm so sorry about your miscarriage :(

I did find an article that talks about the shot, here is a link: http://www.ivillage.com/rh-factor-questions/6-n-138539?ice=iv:mb:msg:mm. Here is also a link to the TTC After Miscarriage board that Angela suggested: http://forums.ivillage.com/ivillage/?category.id=iv-ppttcmiss.

Here is also another article that discusses the pros and cons of different methods to track ovulation: http://www.ivillage.com/ovulation-calendar-ivillage-pregnancy-amp-parenting/6-a-144736?ice=iv:mb:msg:mm. If you don't think that charting your BBT will stress you out, it might be a good idea if you don't get another BFP in a few months.

Good luck!
