What is wrong with me? Mama of *3* TTC since Feb 2013; 3 kids; Wisconsin 15834 posts

Ok, here's the deal. SO and I have been casually trying for baby #4...we arent charting anything, just having sex. We started that a few months ago and Im still not pregnant (got pregnant by looking at the p***s with the first 3 haha). My periods have been kind of irregular since having my 8 month old...my cycles were lasting like 35 or so days, instead of my normal 28.



Today is day 48 and no period. For the past week Ive been having EXTREMELY painful headaches and crazy heartburn, painful, burning breasts and nipples, and some cramping. But again, no period or even spotting. Negative pregnancy tests.



My mom mentioned the fact that maybe I'm not ovulating? Ive gained quite a bit of weight since having kids, and a lot of that has come with baby #3. Ive heard before that obese women who lose a little bit of weight their bodies go back to "normal." Do you think its possible, or maybe something else going on? I hate the doctor, but I think Im going to have to be checked :?

We are definitely not stopping the sex part haha. Im just soooo confused! My periods have been extremely regular until after my youngest was born. But even then, I was still getting a period. Now, after 48 days nothing? lol Ive taken 2 pregnancy tests, the last one almost a week ago. I have cramping, like ohh here it comes. But then nothing happens. Grrr

weight gain is a factor, but so is stress, caffeine, smoking etc. But still to eliminate that factor just do some cardio and change up your eating habits

You could have an issue or not and even if you did it could be something as little as doing BCP to regulate or getting meds to jump start your period for you. The best thing is to eliminate the " what ifs " cause it probably isn't!

I got pregnant with my son out of the blue....me and his dad hadn't even been together a full 3 months before my HPT was confirmed by the doctor. Now we have been TTC# since July and nothing....but then I think about the fact there is only one time a month you can get pregnant and how often we may have sex due to schedules and just being tired! But now im taking BCP for 3months and on that 3rd month I will stop and hope for a BFP. I am not irregular, but I know when you take BCP it stops you from ovulating and for some as soon as you stop the pills you can ovulate and you also could possible release more than just one egg. So im praying to good, keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best!

You could of ovulated late and that's why your test a week ago was negative. Or when you tested your urine didn't contain enough hcg. With my first two ds I didn't get a positive til af was a week late. I was heavier with ds 2, tried for 6 months nothibg. Lost twelve lbs in 6 weeks then got a bfp.

Yes, I believe it might be the weight gain..I myself went through the same problem tried for #2 for 3 years after gaining a lot of weight with my first but then loss around 20 pounds and was pregnant within 2 months... good luck hope you get a answer soon! :)
