Hello, have decided to join for some moral support!

Hello all
I have been 'lurking' for a while on this site now and have already gots lots of invaluable advice from you all so thought it was time I said 'hello'!
I am lucky enough to have 2 lovely girls but am now ttc baby number 3. We were very fortunate both times and conceived fairly easily and I guess I naively thought that it would be the same the third time around. I came off the pill 8 months ago and have only had 2 AF's since then - I thought the last one was never going to arrive! I think i have only ov'd once in that time as well. Am starting to worry that time is running out - if it doesn't happen this cycle it might be another 8 months before we can try again - aaahhh! Am currently on countdown to ov'n (sorry, not sure of all abbreviations yet!). Have bought the CBD 7 stick test for this month but could very well end up using 3 packs as with such irregular cycles, I have no idea when to start testing. Anyway, fingers crossed - I plan to start b'ding tomorrow night -(10 days post AF) and then testing on day 15. I hope at least I get a smiley face so we know we are on the right track. (By the way, CB ov sticks helped me conceive my first 2 so they are def worth trying - I ovulate much later in the month than I thought so I don't think I would have ever got the right days without them!):\)
