Officially I'm still in (13DPO), but I tested negative this morning and I feel AF is coming (due tomorrow).

Also, I have been focusing a lot on other things lately. I am busy with my yoga teacher training. And since last week we have been looking into adoption. I feel that just reading the information and seeing it as a realistic option, has already lowered the pressure I feel while TTC. We both feel drawn to the idea of adoption (even if we would have a biological child), but we have never really looked into it until now.

We are thinking about registering for adoption around August this year. The preparatory phase only can take up to 18 months. So by then we would probably either be pregnant/have a baby, or have finished all possible fertility treatments.

Good luck in your new job Rachel!!

AF showed up today so I am out. I just got a new job and will be starting May 2nd. It will be nice to have something else to focus on. I am holding off on seeing the doctor until I am settled in my new position. Maybe we will get lucky and get pregnant during that time.

She is so much fun and loves exploring our new yard and helping us out with chores and activities. She is also developing her own opinion which can be both good and bad! Most days I can't believe she's so big already!

He's 14 months. He's doing well. Learning new things and growing like crazy. How's your little girl?

Thanks. The training is Birth and Bereavement, so it is rather emotionally rough . . . but all in the best of ways.

I am thinking of you all.
I just submitted my first exam for my doula certification -- 7 more to go.
I also have about a week in in eating well, so there is that. Currently planning a preconception visit in early June to figure out what another pregnancy might mean care-wise. Conceiving was easy for me in the past (it was just keeping the baby that was hard), but it seems my luteal phase is currently only about 7 days (I am still breastfeeding 3 times a day), so not sure what that might mean. I am determined that I will lose at least 20 pounds before all of that, though (not meaning by early June, but before really trying to conceive)

Expecting AF today and got another BFN this morning so I guess we're on to May. Not sure what to do differently, but DH isn't quite ready to see a specialist. Good luck all the rest of our April hopefuls!

Jennifer - good luck with training!

Gwenn - I finally read up on Mercier Therapy. I'd never heard of it before and agree it sounds intense but promising! Good luck!

I thought about posting yesterday that I was in but got a surprise early Nope today. I hate these kinds of surprises!

Best wishes to everyone this month!

Hope all goes well with your training to be a doula! Very cool!

I am back from CA and had an interesting experience. All I can say is that Mercier Therapy is not for the faint of heart!

Tested this morning at 12 DPO and got a BFN. Trying to hang on to a little hope and hold out a few more days before testing again. Getting frustrated by the whole thing. DH and I would really love to have three or four kids but I just feel the clock ticking away with every "wasted" month. I feel VERY blessed to have my beautiful daughter, I just don't feel like our family is complete yet.

I'm in this month. Cycle #30, TTC #1. No meds, no doctors, no IUI... just the two of us again.

Hoping for lots of good news this month!
I officially registered for training to be a birth and bereavement doula through StillBirthDay. I'll begin training on April 4.

Officially in the TWW. Timing this month was probably the best its been this time around. Staying optimistic that this will somehow be our month. Should know something around April 10th.

Good luck to all our April hopefuls!

CD14 here and still waiting for O. I can only hope that somehow this will miraculously be our month. I hope we will see many BFPs in April!
