Could this be it?

Well I'm 8dpo today and I have had a lot of symptoms over the past few days. My temps have been awesome really high! with a dip at 6dpo which could indicate implantation. 7dpo and 8dpo I have been cramping and having twinges on the right side. My breasts have been really sore. The newest symptom I have had is this metallic taste in my mouth it lasts about a minute like blood in mouth and then its disappears. I read that that can be a sign of early pregnancy. I can't wait to POAS, I'm nervous and excited, however I don't want to get too excited. I guess only time will tell. If I'm not PG then back to trying again, I will be a Mum someday.

I'm sitting here with tears running down my cheeks. DH Semen Analysis came back abnormal. His % of normal sperm cells were only 3% which should be %15. Agglutination he has a mild form of and his Viscosity is 2 which it should be 3 to 4. At this rate we'll be lucky to conceive naturally. Right now all I want to do is curl up and cry for hours and hours. It's not fair, it's hard enough with me just having issues why does DH have to have issues also. I can't take this, why me? why him? why us? :-(

Moving Forward

We are moving forward in the TTC process, last week I had an appointment with my OBGYN. She has ordered a bunch of tests and we'll formulate a plan when everything comes back. Saturday I went for my blood work for the PCOS panel including the Glucose Tol Test. I had some of my results back I'd like your opinions on the 1hr glucose test my numbers dropped and I'm kinda worried about that. These were drawn on CD12.

Fasting Glucose - 87
Fasting Insulin - 14

1hr Glucose - 66 and has a L next to it does this mean it's low?
1hr Insulin - 13.8 and has a L next to it does this mean it's low?

2hr Glucose - 96
2hr Insulin - 51.9

TSH  - 1.84 FSH - 5.3 and LH - 18.9 Prolactin 11.6 Estradiol 200

I am waiting for my sex hormone and Testosterone. 

Tomorrow DH has his SA test and he's kinda nervous about it. It took me a while to even get him to make an appointment but after a few days of procrastinating he booked it for tomorrow. I'm going with him as he wanted me there, think he's rather nervous about it.

Guess what another one of my friends is PG so I'm going to have 2 friends close by going through pregnancies.  Please can I be next, please!!

Soul Searching

I've done a lot of soul searching the last couple of days, and something has been made clear to me. I'm not going to wait I'm going to carry on TTC for better or worse. Yet another one of my Facebook friends announced that she was PG. Every time I hear a PG announcement I feel like a bigger piece of me is missing. The hubs and I have talked and if he doesn't find work when a baby finally arrives then I will go back to work and he will be a stay at home dad for a while. My dream is for me to stay home but if that doesn't work out then that's fine. Hopefully if I do get PG my pregnancy won't be high stress and I can carry on working. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it, I'm going to go with the flow and see what happens you can't plan everything the way you want. Hopefully the hubs will find work soon.

So next month it's back to temping, my new insurance kicks in soon. So I'm going to make an appointment to see what's going on, 5mths still no PG however I am getting regular cycles. Maybe I'm not ovulating strong enough. We shall see. I do want to thank everyone for your kind messages advice and support. :-)

It's been a while I have been so busy with my new job I haven't really focused too much on TTC. DH and I are not really preventing, however I haven't really tempted in a while. AF arrived on time last month so I'm still getting regular cycles. My heart is still aching for a little baby it's been so strong over the last few days, and now a friend I've become really close too is now expecting. I'm going to see her pregnancy progress and will wish everyday I was PG.

I can't decide what to do whether to carry on temping and watch my cycles closely or just wing it and see what happens. I really don't want to prevent, however DH still hasn't found work. I feel like I'm in a rock and a hard place all I know is that these feelings aren't going away they are so strong.

Things Happen for a Reason

Today has been such an emotional day, it started out with AF arriving. I was so disappointed seeming I had such a huge temp spike yesterday. I am glad however that I am getting AF regularly every month it shows that my body is working right now and it must mean that I'm ovulating regularly.

This afternoon I get a call from a Graphic company I interviewed last week. Looking back I feel I answered some questions wrong. But guess what? I got the job!! I am so excited and can't believe it. I'm hoping our luck is turning around.

I am nervous though starting a new job. I do want some people's opinions though do you all think we should continue with TTC right now? Money won't be a problem seeming I'll have a nice new job, but I worry if I become PG before Clay get's a job. Again it's what ifs? I just wanted some opinions on the matter.
