Hello ladies (and gentlemen):
I've been lurking for about a week and figured i should introduce myself now. I just turned 32, got married in May, and H and i have been together for almost 10 years. We are ready for a baby now.
I was freaking out last week that i might not have ovulated after being on the pill for 13 years (last pill period started 5/26). I read about temping while on my honeymoon and started that when i got back. I had been at 98.8 from last Monday - Friday and then Saturday dropped to 98.2, had some spotting, and AF arrived on Sunday. So i feel pretty good about concluding that i did ovulate my first month off the pill - i am just on a 34 day cycle right now.
I downloaded the FF app and am tracking my temp and other stuff on there. No idea if my cycle will continue to be 34 days (been on the pill for so long i can't even remember what it used to be...went on the pill because of killer cramps, not necessarily irregularity, and i had never tracked it previously because i was a silly teenager). but temping should help me monitor that, and i'm considering ordering some ovulation tests on amazon as well. Can't decide if i want to start those this month or wait until i feel my cycle out for another month before starting them.
lovely to meet you all and excited to be on this journey with all of you!
