what's going on lately...

I haven't updated my blog in almost a month. I really didn't have anything interesting to say. We are about to start our next cycle. I had a bfn today at 8dpo, which I know doesn't mean I'm out yet, but I can tell that I am.

I'm really not looking forward to next week, because I don't have a lot of synthroid pills left. This means I have to call my OBGYN, who is currently managing my thyroid since we are TTC. They'll have me come in for bloodwork. I'll have to sit in an office full of pregnant women rubbing their bellies. It's not going to be fun. I have to do this every three months or so until I get pregnant.

I really don't do well with watching non-stop belly rubbing.

Luckily, the time after this I will be going to my OB office for a fertility work-up (or hopefully, another pregnancy). So this time will be hard, but next time, while it will still be difficult, I will feel like we are accomplishing something.

Here are the pills I am taking right now: Prenatal vitamin (currently Similac Prenatal, although it varies, it is a two-pill a day pack), 1000IUVitamin d3 a day (down from 2000IU daily since I've changed up my pills), one baby aspirin a day (81mg), Calcium pills (60% of daily calcium, and 800IU of d3), levothyroxin, and methylfolate (can't remember how much, but 200% of daily value for a non-pregnant woman, which I think roughly converts to 100% for a pregnant woman).

I've never been tested for MTHFR, but it can't hurt to take precautions since it is very common and I have had a miscarriage. I actually feel great taking methylfolate and extra d3. I've felt a lot less stressed out and had less headaches for the past two weeks, which is awesome.

They say to take methylfolate for three months prior to the next conception if you have MTHFR. I started it slowly a little over a month ago, and it doesn't look like I'm pregnant. Also, DH is interviewing for a position today (it is his second interview, there are only two of them left), so if he gets that position, we will probably skip TTC next month for insurance purposes. So it will hopefully work out really well.

I'm definitely still aggravated with certain things and easily upset, but I have been less stressed lately, so that is a good thing. I really wanted to be pregnant by Christmas, and depending on how things go, that probably will not happen. But I hope to be pregnant by March 13th, Sunny's due date. That would make it so much easier to heal!

Good luck to any TTC'ers out there reading this.
