Onalark, know how you feel. my husband told me it would be easy as his mother had him at 40. I said to him in case you haven't noticed she had 7 before you and I am not related to your mum.
I am starting to think he has no idea...
Life. Be in it.

Kaylee!!!!!!!! So thrilled for you!! Congratulations!!
An update: we had to postpone our procedure a month due to missing our ovulation window this month. Disappointed, but trying to be sanguine about it. Another month of trying to eat healthily!

Hi ladies, I've been a lurker on the site for about a year now, and serious about the lifestyle since Feb.
The hubs and I have been TTC since June 2009. I had two regular cycles right after going off birth control and then went a year without ovulating or getting a period. Then I worked with an OB-GYN for six cycles with clomid or femara and metformin, she didn't believe it made me ovulate, but I at least was having a withdrawal bleed. Then I did two cycles with an RE, and they discovered that I probably was ovulating just later than the OB-GYN "standard". I ovulate, whether medicated or not, around CD 20. Well, the two cycles with the RE resulted in BFN's. In July 2011, my husband was diagnosed with testicular cancer, so that stopped all medicated treatments in order to focus on his health. I had been seeing a TCM acupuncturist who recommeded Vitex as I did not want to go back on birth control, and low and behold, I've had regular cycles since. We haven't gotten our BFP yet, but I just feel so much better ovulating and having cycles on my own that I just know it's going to happen at some point. I'm 28 and my husband is 32, so I do feel like we have some time too.

How has going primal effected your BBT? Mine has been really low, like 96.5 in follicular phase, and a max of 97.5 during luteal phase, although it hovers around 96.9 during LP for the most part.

I don't know because I wasn't tracking pre-primal, however I do know that when I started to go to bed regularly at 10 PM, my BBT stopped going up and down.
