TTC and looking for buddies :)
So I've spent the past 2 years on here planning & discussing my wedding and found it to be a great support network, meeting some lovely people along the way.
Now that we are beginning our journey of TTC our first baby I thought where better than to share with others and am hoping to see some familiar faces (or names) as well as meeting new ones!
A bit about us - we have been together for 11 years and got married in March this year. I have been on different pills for quite a long time (12 years) - initially Microgynon for about 8 years, Marvelon for about a year and then onto Logynon. I finished my last pill packet on the 16th July and had a withdrawal bleed so if we are speaking in cycle terms of this being one I'm on CD22. However, I don't know how long it will be before my first proper AF. I know it could happen instantly or could take months (or even years) but we have been DTD regularly anyway. I've bought some OPKs from eBay but haven't found any LH surge as yet. I feel myself getting a bit obsessed already but know that I need to chill a bit!
Before going on the pill I had bad cramps when due AF but they were pretty much 28 day cycles so hoping that they will go back to normal asap, but who knows! My biggest worry atm is "Are there even any eggs & can I carry a baby?" Which I imagine everyone feels at this stage. I'm currently taking morrisons pregnancy supplement which I've found contains almost exactly the same as pregnacare but is cheaper and follow a pretty healthy diet anyway. Have also cut down on alcohol.
Since coming off of the pill I'm a bit like a hormonal teenager! I've been getting more spots, I'm so tired (sleeping about an hour earlier than usual and still lethargic throughout the day) and am a bit of an emotional wreck! I cried hysterically the other night over nothing and then started laughingI feel happy and then instantly irritable. On top of that I'd hoped to lose some weight but haven't yet! But hey ho the only way is up I suppose!
That's where I'm at atm, it would be great to hear your experiences and how you are getting onxxx
