Well now that I have you here I might as well tell you what's going on. Ignore the title. If you know me, or have read my previous posts then you know that my DH and I have been TTC for 2 years and 8 months now. We finally overcame the fertility obstacle with 100mg Clomid but that pregnancy failed to grow and I had a D&C/D&E in April. You have to wait a while before trying again and coming up on this cycle, I can once again go back on Clomid and try. Yet there was something that was going to push it back another month..

So lets go back to April...I had quit smoking (cigarettes, NOT weed...just to clarify, I don't use any drugs or drink alcohol) I had quit for about a month and a half. When I found out that my HCG was low and not doubling and started going for lab work every other day, it was a very awful thing to handle...then my DH went out of town and I went through the surgery alone. I started smoking cigarettes again. I decided that while taking my mandatory break from TTC that I would take Chantix, the stop smoking pill. The first month cost $117.00 so I really believed it would work. It didn't really help, it just made me so sick for the first few hours after taking it that I didn't want to smoke, it gradually increases from .5mg once a day to 1mg twice a day. When I reached 1mg twice per day it started causing a lot of problems, stomach pain, trouble falling asleep, fatigue, constipation, indigestion, lucid dreams and making me irritable. The list goes on and on, then I read that it can cause birth defects and did the math...I wouldn't be finished with my first month until after the start of my next cycle and after ovulation so it would be at least July before TTC. The problems became too much and despite the guilt of how much the medicine cost, I stopped taking it a few days ago and feel much better now. We have vacation in a couple weeks so I have been tanning, I had to pay all the way through July and I didn't want to loose that money but I don't really give two craps now. I want to TTC again so bad. I asked DH if he was ready to give it a go this month and he's completely on board (I think hes just up for a lot of BD'ing though!)

So if AF comes on Wednesday at 28 days then I will be using OPK's while at the beach. I have a sneaking suspicion that she will be a little late..she showed up at 32 days post surgery and if its one thing my AF likes to do..repeat herself in odd form. At least she hasn't shown up every 14 days like she did from last October until this past February.

So that's all for now. I think we are going to get back in the game, I already feel a lot happier about things and I can't wait for success!  Oh and the Chantix lasted all of two weeks and two days before I gave up.
