I didn't think it would happen so quickly - I am pregnant. Either that, or I have a weird flu with it's only symptoms fatigue, morning sickness (in the pm today), sore, enlarged bbs, headache.
Yesterday at cd=27, dpo=12 I got a very faint pink line on a saveontests.com stick with fmu.
I just turned 42 in July! This was the second month TTC #2. DD (3 yo) took two months of trying as well.
I have 1 ovary since 1991. Mine was removed due to a dermoid (large benign) cyst.
My periods were always irregular, 28-34 days. Sometimes a 41 day, sometimes a 24.
Recently, I had experienced a huge iregularity that made me worry. My cycle lengths were since Jan 2004: 24, 25, 28, 39. I had also been very, very stressed all those months due to family stuff.
Last month (first month TTC) I was cd=32. This month, I had my hormones checked out on cd=3 (July 9th) and received FSH=5.5 estradiol <32. Before the blood work, the RE felt certain that I was an IVF candidate and that I was indeed perimenopausal. He urged me to get an HSG right away. I was going to wait until after trying for about 6 months.
This month, I started drinking green tea, V8, grapefruit juice, 1 oz of wheat grass juice about every other day & lots of OJ fortified with calcium. Plus, I ate about 2/3 cup of wheat germ with rice milk almost daily to get folic acid and vitamin A. Also, I started eating more spinach salads. I took a tablet a day of nettle and milk thistle vitamins for about 4 days around ovulation time since that is when I bought it.
I also read the book Inconceivable and it made me feel more relaxed this month versus how tense I felt last month.
For the last few months, I have eliminated all diary, processed foods with sugar, white flour (except for my b-day cake), and white rice. I also stayed away from people and situations that aggravated me since I get rattled easily.
I want to thank you ladies for all the information you provided. It is terrific how you all support and comfort one another. These boards are very necessary and I am thankful to have discovered them two months ago.
Wishing you all tons and tons of baby dust and hugs!
