Fertility Update: Finally!

I am rounding the last few days of my second round of birth control and I am ecstatic to be DONE!


I always said that after we had a child (If we were fortunate enough) I would go back on BC.  I always said I didn't want a surprise pg in my 40s.

Now that I've been on BC for 2 months, I'm not so sure.  I've mentioned before how terrible I feel.. moody, cranky, bloated, the list goes on and on. Basically I just don't feel like myself.  I'm not sure if my body would get used to it again and I'd feel fine (or if I tried a different pill) but I just don't know. I feel terrible and the extra few lbs just aren't going away (Despite running and running and running....jk).

I am on CD32 which is totally strange for me. I'm usually a clockwork 26/27 day kind of girl.  You might be thinking maybe you should take a pg test.  I know I probably should, many people have gotten pg on BC, but I'm not sure I can take the "Not pregnant" result yet another time (and I'm not sure I want to waste a $10 test when I'm 99.9% positive it's not positive).  I highly doubt I am pg, I think my body is trying to regulate back to "normal" ..whatever that is.


We went to dinner last night with friends and I overheard this conversation between two business men (why can't I ever get away from it??).

BM1 (business man 1): Ya, no luck, she's been praying and praying and it's just not happening.
BM2: oh man that sucks..
BM1: ya, something with her right ovary, it's not producing eggs or something like that.  She started going to a specialist....

and I took a large swig of wine and promptly stopped eavesdropping.  I'm not sure how my ears even perked up to that, what made me start listening to that conversation??

Just another reminder we're not alone.
