I am 25 years old with a 2 and a half year old daughter and I desperately want to give her a sibling. This has been driving me crazy because it's proving very hard. Firstly I am having very unusual cycles that i have never experienced before I am usually reasonably regular between days 29 to 32 at the latest. Now I have no idea when i am going to get my period, i got it very unexpectedly a couple of months ago on day 27 and the next month I didn't get it till day 37. I ovulated very early and then very late. Each month I get ovulation pains at random times and I think it is my period coming but when it doesn't arrive I put it down to ovulation pains. Then I think to myself "don't you know your own body by now" but the truth is no I don't. When I concieved with my daughter it was so much easier and now I am all over the place. I am starting to get depressed and crying all the time because I think there is something wrong with me. I am still waiting for my period this month and I think it is a while off because I had severe pains on day 29 and 30 and then they wen't away with no sign of my period at all. Is it even possible to ovulate so late?
Secondly i am overweight and I have been trying to eat healthily (not lose weight) just look after myself alot better. I am not really overweight I am what people would call curvy but then i second guess myself and wonder whether the weight is contributing to my fertility problems. i don't understand though because I was this size when I concieved my daughter.
I am sounding really crazy and I'm sorry it's just i don't have anyone to really talk to as my mother and sister fall pregnant at the drop of a hat so they don't understand, I just need some advice or someone to relate to me. I used to be so insync with my body and now i feel lost. If anyone can help or understand that would be greatly appreciated.
