Introduction from Sunshine Bud

Hello! It’s me, Sunshine Bud!

I am so excited to be a part of the Bloomin’ Babies Blog! Before I start blogging, I thought I’d provide a few stats:

Sunshine Bud is 36 years old

Mr. Sunshine Bud is 36 years old too. (Side note: We are born 25 days apart, same year, same hospital, and the same doctor delivered us!)

TTC since 10/2008 (we we’re hoping for a honeymoon baby, but no such luck L )

Current cycle number: 9

Cycles Charted: 5 (only three using FF; the other two have been loaded onto FF but were paper charts)

Supplements: We have both been taking FertilAid for the past three and a half months. We have also recently started on various vitamins, minerals and supplements but that is for another post.

Monitor: This will be the second cycle using the Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor. I love this little gadget.

What’s next: Who knows; we will probably visit an RE come October IF and only IF no BFP.

Now I sit here on CD 12 and looking forward to the next few days; Only 2-3 days or so until my fertile window.

Mr. Sunshine Bud and I have been married for just over a year and we live in Arvada, Colorado.

Now, onto our history and TTC journey – Mr. Sunshine Bud and I met in August 2006. We both knew immediately that we were meant to be together. We were inseparable and during the next year, continued to talk about our future together! Neither of us had been married before and we both had a strong desire to have children. So we started planning our wedding and in January 2008, Mr. Sunshine Bud was seriously stung with baby fever. I didn’t want to disappoint any family and convinced Mr. Sunshine Bud that waiting to start a family was best for both of us. After all, I wouldn’t enjoy a honeymoon and do all that we wanted to do, if I was pregnant, so we waited.

In August of 2008, I look my last BCP and came off several other meds that I had been taking for various reasons. Since I have hypothyroidism, I must take my Levothyroxine and Cytomel and I will never be off of these meds, even during a pregnancy. In October, we were given the thumbs up from my doctors (due to the meds) to start actively TTC. Our honeymoon came and went without a BFP, so in November I started charting but on paper. Oh, if I had only known about back then!

In January 2009, I stopped charting due to stress with home buying and the months of February and March were plain crazy with preparing our new home and moving. When May rolled around, I got serious about TTC again. Although I wasn’t temping, I was using OPK’s and documenting my symptoms. The chart for June was like the Rocky Mountains that we live in and the month of July looking so promising but after some careful review, I think our timing has been off.

So here we are, Cycle 9! This is the second month using the CBEFM and we are gearing up for this cycle to be the ONE! I’ve purchased PreSeed lubricant, we’re using some conception hypnotherapy CDs and I’m charting. Overall, we are just preparing to make this cycle the MAGIC CYCLE! Needless to say, we are excited to know that cycle #9 could actually be a possible BFP for us. We are ready to be knocked up!

Well, enough about me. I’m looking forward to posting on here and let’s hope a BFP comes soon! I promised to keep everyone updated on my chart and all the emotions we all know are tied to this exciting and frustrating journey.

Until then, it’s nice to meet you all!

Until next time,

Sunshine Bud
