Re: Surprise, Planned or Rainbow Baby?
Rainbow and planned... well more planned than our other children. It isn't that they weren't planned, but we went through fertility treatments just before we conceived our 1st, 4 yrs later of NOT preventing we got pregnant with the 2nd, had an ovary removed and was told with our history of infertility it would be very unlikely for us to get pregnant without some form of treatment, well 10 months after the surgery we were pregnant. Then almost 3 years later we got pregnant with the one we lost, again while never preventing. After our loss, I kind of got aggressive and started reading up on fertility and started temping, checking CP and CM to find out if I was ovulating and how often my 1 ovary was ovulating. Found out it was monthly, later in my cycle with an 11 day luteal phase and still nothing. So, I started taking RRL, Maca and a mega B complex... 1st month nothing, next month a bust due to a serious car accident I was in and wasn't taking any supplements due to the accident, 3rd month supplements + chiropractor and we got a BFP.
