Trying to Get Pregnant

Ready to come out of lurking...

Hi everybody, I want to start by saying how grateful I am to have found a community that doesn't spew misinformation and blow smoke up each other's sses! I have been lurking here for awhile now, hesitant to post because I was sure my BFP was around the corner. 6 months later...still no luck. So here's my story...

I'm 26, my hubs is 30. We got married in September 2012 and have been "trying" since then. By trying I mean humping it out EOD, without charting, OPKing etc. I felt we had no reason to doubt my fertility, since I have a 5 year old daughter from a previous relationship, who is a happy little miracle conceived while I was on the pill. With the exception of the time I was pregnant with her, I have been on some form of hormonal birth control for 10 years. I had regular cycles in sept., oct., and nov., had my last cycle on January 6th and my period has been AWOL since then. Don't worry, I'm not going to ask you if I'm pregnant because I know I'm not, I have about 5 billion sticks I've peed on and one blood test to confirm. I saw my GYN on Wednesday, after 81 days without a period, he says to come back if I hit the 4 month mark and he'll prescribe progesterone to induce a period. As for why I haven't ovulated in nearly 3 months, he doesn't seem particularly concerned, so I'm trying to follow his lead and just relax. I've just started to dabble in charting in the past few weeks, so I don't have a full cycle to look at yet. I'm struggling because i work nights and my temps seem to be really inconsistent. Also, my OPKs all look positive the line is darker than the control. I've been using the software that came with TCOYF, and I've tried FF but for some reason I can't view my entire chart? It only shows the first few weeks of this cycle, which were before I started recording my temp or any fertility signs. So essentially, even though I've entered all my data, all I'm seeing is a blank chart. Am I being a dunce? Any suggestions?

So, thanks for reading my novel, I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. A little bit about me...i love 90's music, the ID channel, and the Detroit Lions. i dislike AWs and small talk. I've already learned a lot from you all, especially the newbie blog!

  • Welcome!

    As for FF I don't know what's wrong with it. Sometimes mine gets stuck on a CD and I will log out to reset it. But other than that I have no clue.

    I also work nights some and I notice a higher temp after those shifts b

  • I'm already doing vaginal temping, I'm hoping that when I have a full cycle to look at I'll be able to see a clear shift. Time will tell, I guess! Thanks for the welcome :

    I'm not positive, but I think FF does weird things when a cycle is over a certain number of days. It might be 60. I don't know how to fix it, but I think there is a way you can do it. Sorry that's not very helpful, I j
