Ah, weehl.

I'm going to open up, because you all are (mostly) strangers. And what better place to share problems than anonymously on the 'Net?

"Well, several places, Kate."

Shut up, Mind.

Anywho, for the past several, several months, the dear Beau and I have been forgoing birth control in order to give the Poopmonster a sibling to occupy his time. Well, that and to expand the family (because the world needs more whimsical chicken wrasslers).

However, nothing is sticking.

So I've changed my diet. In the past two months, I've been eating a lot of color. Kale, beets, blueberries, you name it, I've probably drank/saute`ed/gnawed/baked it.

So, if you have any advice, feel free to comment below. I'll appreciate any pick-me-up/help I can get.

Unless it calls for standing on my head.
I don't dig that.

    I borrowed a book called something like "taking charge of your fertility" from the library... back in 2008 so I can't remember the name. And I learned to tell the difference between when I was and was not ovulating. Also, it took a few months for my body to start ovulating again. Anyway, I figured out what day was the O day based on my body temperature rising a little bit once I did ovulate, and also by... um... cervical discharge (which is also how I went without any birth control for 3 years without getting pregnant). The second month I was pregnant.

    As far as sticking, your body 'aborts' more pregnancies than it keeps, for various reasons, most of the time without even embedding. Some people take pregnancy tests that are readable 5 days before the missed period, but that is torture - that helps you detect the 50+% pregnancies your body terminates before 'missing' a period. Then there's the other large percentage afterward... long story short...

    Don't stress till you've been trying for at least 6 months.
