Working again...

Today is CD1. My first AF since September 2009. My first naturally occurring AF since November 2007.  I knew this was coming. Last night I was even thinking that it had been about two weeks since I thought I had ovulated. Of course I wasn't sure because it has been years since I actually ovulated on my own. But I was pretty sure I had read all the signs correctly.

There was a little sadness this morning when I found out but mostly I was relieved. Kevin and I have decided to TTC#2 in the new year. I had it in the back of my mind to wait until GV was 18 months. I knew I wasn't going to be one of those women who ovulated while BF'ing so I weaned GV by his 15-month birthday, Sept 15. I was hoping that during this three month stretch I would ovulate on my own. I would view any cycles during this time as bonus. So now I've got a baseline. Hopefully next month things will work like clockwork and then come the end of December we'll be good to go.

Wow, since 2009?! I wish you the best with TTC#2. I'm already thinking of #2 and my baby is only 8 months. I hope my body will start to work!

Sounds like you guys have a plan! Hopefully everything cooperates.
