Hi All :)
Normally, I would just leave it at introducting myself in the newby thread, but I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this, and at least get it off my chest (I don't talk about TTC in my real world).
Without going into all of the details and making this post a short novel-- we went from condom protection to TTC in January and I started taking Pre-Natal vitamins under my doctors recommendation around that time. Because I am an athlete I chart my cycles (I'm not an elite, so I don't want to lose my cycle to a faster track run!) and have done so for 4 years, including mucus tendencies. Yes, I charted mucus before TTC because I'm a nut case :). I have been 27-30 days every cycle for 4 years, the longest being 31 days and I'm pretty sure it was my mistake on the calendar.
In March, I had a 38 day cycle. After four years of charting and now actively trying and having this be 7 days longer than my longest cycle, I was convinced I was pregnant. Two days before it did eventually come, I caught a cold. This month, I woke up with a cold again, on cycle day 29.
Anyone else have a drastic change in their cycle during TTC? Would it have something to do with the vitamins? I haven't had any exercise or diet changes or anything else that they say changes your cycle, so I think it's that or that I'm so desperate for a baby I made myself late.
