After taking 9 months to get pregnant with my now 3y old, I decided I wasn't going to use contraceptive that affected hormones and opted for a coil thinking this would give be the best chance of conceiving when I decided the time was right. Nearly 2 years ago i had it removed and after a year of trying, nothing!
Had charted my periods as I always have and realized they were not regular and coming as little as 17days apart ! Went to the doctor with this info, she told me I wouldn't be ovulating With cycles so short, did hormone test and she said they looked fine and all she could do for me was put me on the pill to hopefully regulate me and kickstart ovulation!
I was very unhappy but thought I had no other option so in March I started the pill & took it for 3 months (should have been 6) after a bit of research tried the herbal route which did seem to regulate and wasn't contraceptive ! did this for 4-5 months and slowly my cycles were getting shorter again so thought they were loosing there effectiveness!
A few weeks ago I had decided I would not take anything and c how I got on! Then back to docs new year! I was told a few weeks ago my shop ( a major high street retailer in a major shopping centre I have worked in for nearly 10 years ) was closing that they were looking at placing us in alternate places.
so after months of ov test and plenty of sex especially at that time , I decided as my job situation was uncertain I would not actively ttc but as nothing has happened in nearly to years not prevent it either.
Was told fri no suitable alternative was available and I will b made redundant in Jan!
I have been nauseous for nearly a week and thought it could b due to stressful situation at work but also had an inclin I could b pregnant so have done a test today and it was so faint it was badly there so went and got a clear blue and come up pregnant! When I actually checked I'm 2 days late going off a 28 day cycle which is not likely for me. I had mistakenly thought I was due next sun but was actually last!
I am so happy to b pregnant after nearly 2 years trying was about to give up doing it to myself, then I loose my job and it happens!
I don't know where to start or who can help me regarding money and jobs .
Any advice ladies ? I have a mortgage and my boyfriend doesn't live with me.
