TTC Thursdays

I have now been on Pregnitude 1.5 months.  On Cycle Day 43 I started spotting and Day 44 I started a very light period.  So that means I had about a 42 day cycle with the Pregnitude.  This is very encouraging as I don't usually have cycles this short unless I am on Clomid, so I am very happy to have had a 42 day cycle on my own.  The only thing I am worried about is my period is extremely light, so light I'm not even sure I can count it as a period.  I'm not sure what that means or how that will affect ovulating on my new cycle and TTC.  I know you need to shed a certain amount with your period to ensure your lining isn't too thick for implantation, so I am worried my lining will be too thick this cycle if my period doesn't get heavier.  At the same time though, I am ready to start a new cycle and hoping that the Pregnitude will help me ovulate this time.  I really hope this will be a good cycle for us as we are now at 8.5 years of TTC  and going on 22 months since our son was stillborn. My patience with waiting is wearing out, I feel I've been very patient and I long to get pregnant and have an alive healthy baby.
