Mmis- I agree- I thought it would happen right away. My DH ran into one of his friends at the gym the other day and it took him and his wife 2 years to conceive. Of course when I asked the details about what they tried and so on, my hubby of course said they didn't discuss that. I should have figured.
Sis- My fingers are crossed for you. I have a question about the strips. I was looking into them at Walgreens...they are expensive..thinking I'll get some from Amazon like you did. Thanks for that tip! Btw those worked right away for 2 of my friends, one being upper 30's and a first baby. Anyways....I thought I read that it predicts LH...so like 24-48 hours before you ovulate? So after you get a positive or whatever it may show as, technically you don't ovulate for another 24-48 hours? I heard sperm can last up to 3 days so might as well get going on the task at hand right away, but is what I am interpreting correct.
As far as my cycle goes...I'm still waiting for my period. I have a irregular cycle as far as I know. I really haven't kept track until a few months ago. Day 29 is today and still no period. I did take a pregnancy test that confirmed I'm NOT pregnant
as well as have no signs of pregnancy so this is no surprise. Just waiting....
I was looking forward to trying this next cycle but my DH has this great idea that we take a romantic getaway to the beach in March...hopefully during my my time of ovulation. At first, and actually still, I am a bit unsure, as I wanted to continue our journey of trying. One of my friends mentioned that I could still have fun at the beach if I was pregnant....true enough but I do worry about flying and all. I know it's not supposed to affect anything but with a previous miscarriage I don't want to take any chances....let alone have any nausea or what have you on vacation. On the other side of things, skipping one month is really not that big of a deal. However, I am 32 almost 33 with no kids and I don't want to miss our chance. So to take or not to take the vacation....that is the question?! UGH! Ok I know stress isn't good so I probably need to chill haha! Any advice is appreciated.
Baby dust coming your way Sis and Mmis. Keep me posted
