I'm new to this

Hi Everyone,
I am really new to all this. I have 2 DD who were conceived naturally after 4 months of trying, but now after 7 months of trying, and a cycle that is stretching longer and longer (I'm on CD 61) I've been researching and I'm going to start taking Royal Jelly, Evening Primrose Oil, and a fertility blend from my health food store that includes Dong Quai and Vitex.

I bought a BBT today so I can start charting. I use the MaybeMom fertility monitor thing that ferns when you ovulate, but I figured that 2 tests are better than one. If I'm taking all these herbs, I need to be sure they are working, and that I am ovulating. I'm hoping it will bring on my cycle so we can start fresh. I actually want to wait a few months until my cycle is back down to 30 days so that we can have the healthiest baby possible....but I'm not the most patient person lol

Please let me know what you think of my line up, and any suggestions are very welcome! Especially on dosing and the best time of day to take things. Thank you!

Ok I just a full round...gag...I am the worst pill taker! This baby better appreciate all the trouble I'm going to to bring it into existence lol kidding :) I temped this morning too and started my chart of FF. I put in the dates of the 7 cycles I've had this year; yep, only 7 cycles all year long. No wonder I'm having such a hard time. But I feel like I just took a step to an exciting phase of this journey, and I am hopeful these will get me on the right path! Hope all is well with you, Ladies!

GL with your vitmins I am on alot too as we are ttc post vasectomy reversal and I tend to ovulate late and have a short LP. Some other things you could look into might be maca and vit C and E. I think the vitex should really help you though! Google vitamins and herbs good for fertility and choose what you think might help you best. If you look in my siggy you will see what I am taking.
