    I am giving my body a break, maybe try again soon but on our own. Ever since then I've lost 15 lbs from exercising and dieting, trying to help my body start to ovulate on its own because sometimes that is all it needs is a little weight loss - but we all know that plus sized woman or obese woman can and do get pregnant!

    It's just heartbreaking seeing all these prego mommies but than I think to myself - I don't know what road they had to take to get to where they are. It's heartbreaking nonetheless but i'm sure our time will come. The part that I am not fond of is all these teenagers who go out to the bar for a good time and are knocked up by some random. That's where it really bugs me.

    Sending baby dust to all of you TTC~!
    Well I hope you'll be successful eventually ! Good luck to you !

    As regards the teens - the doc I saw was really good at explaining. You're the most fertile when you're younger. Even after 25 your fertility already decreases... and you have to keep in mind that human chances to conceive each month are just about 20-25%... yes not more... and that's when everything is fine !

    While listening I thought he was very good at his job !! For instance he says when he puts you on chlomid he'll measure your estrogen levels when you ovulate to assess the quality of the eggs. Also he advises IUI to increases your chances if eggs are good (half the work already done for the little swimmers). And he advises not to stay on Chlomid more than 3-4 months and move to hormones injections if it fails after 3-4 months - because even if the eggs gets fertilized you still have to get them to implant and the longer you wait, the more your implantation success rate decreases (I don't know how old you are but for me time is of the essence, specially if I want 2...)

    Did you have any of this done, or were you "just" on chlomid ?

      Well, temperature did not go down this month so took a test and it's positive... I'm making an appointment with the doctor asap... they should take me in today or tomorrow !


      Definitely, I don't know what it is to "feel" pregnant because I surely did not feel anything different this month ;) Good we have those little pee sticks lol.


      I keep you posted !
