TTC Thursdays

Today is 25 days on Pregnitude.  I have almost finished my first month on it.  I am still noticing the facial hair on my chin is growing in blond, so you can barely see it.  I have still been plucking it though.  The hair in other places is still dark, but that may change as I'm on the Pregnitude longer.  My weight is now exactly the same as when I started, so no real measurable weight changes.  

Now on to TTC, as of Cycle Day 24, I still have not ovulated.  That has been very hard for my husband & I.  Although, I know it takes 3-6 months to see the full benefits of the Pregnitude, I was really hoping we would ovulate the first month.  The thought of knowing it is impossible to conceive this month and still having to wait it out not knowing how long it will be before I get another period and another chance to try for ovulation is extremely painful.  I want to stay hopeful, but I'm really struggling knowing I just lost another month TTC without even the hope of becoming pregnant.  The hope during the 2 weeks waiting is when I feel the most positive all month, so losing that hope this month is going to be really hard.  For me, since I don't ovulate on my own, getting a positive ovulation with Clomid has been almost as exciting as waiting for a positive pregnancy test.  I can't wait to get a positive ovulation in the future from Pregnitude and I really can't wait to hopefully someday get a positive pregnancy test!
