I have never posted on the ttc board, but did post on the pregnancy board about a year and a half ago. Had another miscarriage back in August of 03 and pretty much stopped posting then, but have still been trying like crazy.
Anyway, now instead of trying to figure it all out on my own and hope for a BFP I decided to try some charting and read all I could find on the internet about increasing my chances.
So, now I have downloaded a chart and info, but am having a little trouble figuring out how to chart things. Let me tell you about me real quick and then ask my questions.
AF just started today. So, that would be cycle day one, right? I'm supposed to chart my cm info, but since I just started today do I worry about that at the moment, or do I wait for af to be over? If I do have to figure that out while on af, how do I go about finding that out or being able to tell what that is like? What about BBT? Same question, do I worry bout that now, or wait until af is over? Will a regular thermometer work or do I buy a special one?
What on earth is everyone talking about when they refer to taking robitussin or I've also heard recently using mucinex, that new medicine out now, to help their chances?
Also, I've had my thyroid taken out since last miscarriage and am wondering since I'm on synthroid and have my thyroid levels checked regularly, will not having a thyroid present a problem conceiving and carrying to full term?
I would love to completely avoid another miscarriage if at all possible so should I start taking vitamins now and maybe some extra folic acid?
Please, anyone who would like to share or who has any answers or advice, let me know. I figure the more advice I get, the better.
Thanks for your time and loads and loads of babydust to all.
