Trying for #2

Hi there! Well I am new here so I geuss maybe it would be nice for me to tell everyone about myself. I am a proud mother of a two year old litte girl. My problems are that I can't seem to get pregnant. I have always had a fairly normal cycle until about the time my daughter was 1. I for some odd reason stopped ovulating. After a year and a half of trying to conceive and assuming it was stress that was stopin my period I went on fertility drugs. Because I did not get my period I needed to go on Progesterone pills than Clomid to ovulate. Well I got pregnant quite fast. I was so happy. My husband and I told everyone in our X-mas cards. Well on Christmas day I started to bleed and on New Years Eve I finally lost the baby. That just crushed me. Well I have not started to ovulate yet and the doctor wants to wait till June to see if my bod will correct itself or not. Well in August it will be two years of trying. What I want to know is how much stress can a lady handle and at what point to you just give up and quit?? I can't picture myself with only one child and since the miscarriage I just want another baby so bad it hurts.

Let me know your comments

Welcome Suzie! I am so sorry for your loss. I also dont o every month. The dr is pretty sure I have pcos. I am taking vitex and it makes me o. The first cycle after my m/c I had a 69day annov. cycle. I decided to try it, what do I have to lose? Anyway the cycle after that I od on cd 16 and had a 21 day lp. And last cycle I tried to o on my own, yeah right, I still hadnt od by bd 24, I started vitex, 4 days later I od. This cycle I think I might have od on cd 14, but I am sick so I dont know yet, but I actually had EWCM this month!! Good luck on your ttc journey. ((Crystal))

Well I didn't realize there was a site like this before it is so good to know. The doctor ruled out PLOC because I do not have any symptoms except for lack of ovulation. So at what point do you say enough is enough. We live two hours away from the Doctor so it is an expense just to go see him. I get most of my blood work done in my hometown but it gets to the doctor to late to schedule more. Anyways it is so stressfull I am never sure if I am going to give up or not.

Do you chart? I would start if you arent. Only you can decide if you want to give up or not. Also, how do you know you arent oing if you arent charting? (I reply to so many posts I cant remember if you told me you did or not LOL). Also if you arent oing have you tried clomid? Also, vitex, what I was talking about it a natural cycle regulator. I dont o and it sucks I started taking that and it makes me o. It was my last chance to find something to work before I went to clomid. Good luck. Crystal. PS I have heard quite a few women not really know when they o and they miss it because they assume it is reg. like 14 days.

Hey there. About a year after my daughter was born (conceived naturally) we decided that we wanted another baby. Well my period were kind of weird like every 3 months.... Anyways I started to chart but it was all messed up because I was still getting up with my daughter like 4 times a night. So I went to my OBGYN after lots of blood work he put me on Progesterone to get a period and Clomid to get pregnant. Well that worked but hten I had a miscarriage. And I am still not ovulating, so the blood work on "day 23" says. My doctor does not want to put me on the progesterone again because it will give me too much of an emotional roller coaster blah blah blah and the clomid has lots of side effects. His theory behind this is that I got pregnant alone once and that I just need time to correct things naturally. Well I had my daughter 2 years ago. So anyways for the first time in a long time I have had my period for 4 months in a row. The blood work showed that I did not ovulate though. So I am once again going to try charting and fix this darn mess up on my own.
