TTC and Over Reacting MelissaSquibb Due February 11 (boy); 1 child; 1 angel baby; Louisiana 645 posts

My son is now 18 months old and we decided to start TTC. I have PCOS so my cycles are normally not normal but I have had a cycle for the last two months. I made sure after I had my son that I would continue to keep my cycles going instead of going on birth control since I already have fertility issues to begin with. My weight was fine and I was happy with it and then literally out of no where I gained a lot of weight and it turned out to be my thyroid and after I got that under control I have been losing again. We just decided we are ready to TTC and we have NOT been preventing pregnancy since my son has been born and no pregnancy. (Not trying but not stopping since it is hard to begin with.) Since I have had two periods I figure it is going to happen some time soon.



Lately I have been feeling under the weather and feeling off. My son has also gotten even more clingy then normal, crying if I leave the room. My breasts have hurt off and on, not to the touch they just have a dull ache in them. I also have been cramping off and on. I had my period February 24th and I am having a ovulation test done with the doctor the 19th to make sure I am ovulating before I even try clomid. Well I had really bad cramps since the 10th, they go from being noticeable to being a dull ache. I have felt sick and honestly just very "off" lately and I can't explain it. My husband keeps saying "oh your pregnant it just makes sense," but I know I am not, I can't be! I was suppose to ovulate basically tomorrow but then again PCOS it is erratic. My doctor also made sure I had no cysts because I have been cramping off and on. I guess it is a possibility to have ovulated early but I shouldn't be having such symptoms already? I am just so very confused. :( IF I was pregnant when would I even test?

If the first day of your last period was on the 24th you would be testing in like 2 weeks.

Is it possible to ovulate on the 10th and not the 19th? Thinking back I believe I had all the signs and I am having none now.

If you had a standard 28 day cycle your O date would have been the 10th.....

I am sorry if it is a stupid question and thank you for answering it. I normally don't but I guess as a PCOS woman things are very unpredictable. Perhaps I should ask for well wishes and just test in two weeks and try not to stress about it. :) It is a possibility to be pregnant I am just scared for a disappointment.

I guess I also felt foolish since I have only been TTC officially since well... This month! I also have to remember I was also preparing myself and my body for this way longer then this month. I just don't want to be that paranoid woman TTC and every month going "OMG I AM PREGNANT... " then go "AWEEEE" It wasn't even me who thought anything of it.. :-s

I have PCOS too. I started TTC in Nov and got preg in Feb. Unfortunately you are just going to have to wait it out. And despite how much you try every month will be a disappointment unfortunately. But wait a few weeks sounds like you are still in the game for a 2013 baby =)



Good luck!



You might want to take a vitamin called Vitex. It helps regulate your cycles and ovulation

Thank you so much I have never heard of it and I will give it a try! I really hope that I am but if I am not there is always another day. I think having fertility issues just makes each time we try even more scary (at least it does with me.) I was told I would never have my son so I fear I only will get lucky once, and if I do I am thankful but I want one more! :)

Well I went to the doctor today to get my blood drawn to see if I ovulated the 19th, which thinking back on it I really don't get why they decided to do it today because I didn't ovulate around this time. I told them about my period at my last appointment and told her I started that day and then looked at my calender and corrected myself "I started the 24th," she still wanted to do the blood test for today. Since I had so much to make me believe I did ovulate the 10th I called before the appointment and asked if I could get a blood pregnancy test too. They told me "something" would show up and they would order something if things seemed too high. Which made no sense so they call me and told me what I already knew, I haven't ovulated in the last few days and I am not starting ovulation. I asked about if there was any "sign" and she said, no it just looks at your progesterone levels so we need to do a follow up about options. I don't want to start clomid unless I am 100% sure I am not pregnant. I just wish they would of at least listened and considerd. I looked up when I should be able to test if I did ovulate on the 10th and everything is showing the 24th as my "possible" next start day of a period. So I am going to test then, I might try an early result test Friday night and then take one Sunday morning.

Well I went to get my fact straight and if I had indeed ovulated the 10th it would indeed have showed up in this blood test. :( So no go for a 2013 baby, maybe next month with a Jan 2014 baby.
