Need that Baby Dust

Today after searching the Internet and reading countless TTC blogs, I decided to start my own. Hey. I'm Marie, I'm 22 years old, married for nearly 4 years. My husband is 23. We've been together for quite some time, and decided to get married young after he joined the armed forces.

Last July, we decided it was time to start trying for a baby. Judging by the success of family members in their TTC adventures, we decided it would be very simple for us to get pregnant and have a successful pregnancy. But boy were we wrong.

The first month of trying was confusing. I had my period two times in two weeks (or something like that.. July 11 for 3 days, followed by more bleeding on July 19 for two days), and then I didn't get another one for 38 days. I'm used to 28 days because of birth control pills, so you can imagine how many pregnancy tests I went through. The next cycle was the same, from August to October I had no periods. Then I had a period October 4th, November 9th, and December 5th. I was so excited I thought my periods were returning to normal. I was pretty much wrong again.

In January I suffered from a 7cm cyst on my right ovary. My cycle started December 5 and ended January 28. My next cycle went from January 29 to March 17. With a cyst in between. This month, March, I ovulated on CD 16 with few crampings (which means, I think, that I didn't get a huge cyst again...). That was my very first positive ovulation test ever. I cried tears of joy and emailed my husband to come home from work early so we could make a baby!

Well two days later I'm sitting here playing the waiting game. My husband asked, "Can you take a test yet??" Of course I CAN but would it be logical? No, and obviously at this point it would be negative which would break my heart. I am one of the few who don't enjoy peeing on sticks. I'd rather not risk breaking my own heart by seeing a negative test. I don't even like seeing negative OPK. Now that I've seen a positive one and felt that joy that comes along with a positive test, I can't wait to see more positives...... here's hoping.

Fingers crossed for me please... I need baby dust.
