I can't seem to leave this group, I feel close to you all. So here goes

My name is Nichole, 35 & DH 32
I have 2 boys from previous marriage, and DH has 1 girl, 1 boy from previous relationship.

We had a m/c in March 2011, my first so it was extremely difficult.

After months of ttc, we got a BFP this month. I am very excited but also very nervous don't want another M/C.

I am currently in the beginning stages of starting a cupcake bakery. We live in Birmingham, AL. So I am a true southern girl (meaning, never meet a stranger, & love grits and sweet tea)

I hope y'all don't mind if I stick around.

I'm Jil. I'm 25. Dear fiancé (df) is 28. We've been trying since November 2011. We had a miscarriage in January 2012. We were hoping for a December 2012 baby but now I know we'll have a January 2013 baby.

Df is going for a shot at the end of April that is supposed to help his low sperm count. Last time he had this shot we got a bfp so I know it'll happen again this time. I can't wait.

Hi Ladies!

I was absent but following most of the last thread but since a new one has started figured this might be a good time to jump back in!

My name is Lindsay and I am 28, DH is 29. Been ttc since summer 2011, got pg in November only to learn 6 weeks in that it was ectopic. Lost my left tube in the surgery and really worried about less chances of getting pg now. Been ttc again for 3 cycles now.

This is really a great thread- and there have been so many s lately! There must be a lot of floating around on here!

Joy- How rude of your friend to announce your pg at the party! You must've been furious. So if you get an u/s on Thursday is it late enough for something to be seen?

AFM I am currently 4dpo, I don't chart temps or cm I just had some bad ov pain and I'm thinking that was O day. Had a little heartburn today which gets me a little excited as that was my early symptom last time, but I'm keeping a cool head as it is so early. 10 days until I test! Wishing to stay away this month!

and to us all in the tww

Joy, you and I must have been on the other board posting at the same time! My post went up just after you announced to switch to this thread!

Anyways my names Alicia, DH is Patrick.
We are both 28. No children, just two fur-babies. Yellow Labs Payton (9) & Diamond (4).
Went off BC in August 2009 we weren't trying, but weren't preventing at all either. I was secretly hoping for an "oopsie" baby. I figured everyone else gets one, why can't I....
Dh and I had "the talk" in March of 2009 and actively started ttc. Slowly got into opk's then temping about October/November of that year.
Had a chemical/hcg "surge" () in January 2012. We thought our miracle had finally come through and let our minds run with it! Ouch!
Finally went to the fertility clinic on January 30th 2012 and a new plan was put into place, bunches of blood work, hsg done & clear. But I was finally told I officially have PCOS on 2.29.12.

Had my first IUI cycle last month, which ended in a .
Trying again this month WITHOUT temping or opk's. Hoping the less I obsess over this all, the quicker I get to my bfp! I am hoping I don't loose my mind without knowing what my temps or opk's should be telling me!

Last thread brought so many BFP's I hope my name is on the next list!!!

Brittney: it could be your cycle is changing because of your miscarriage. I went from a 21 day cycle to a 32 day cycle after my miscarriage. I sure hope yours is a bfp though. Good luck!!

Afm- does anyone else find waiting for AF to go away and waiting for ovulation is worse than the 2ww? I can't stand waiting! That's all this journey is! Waiting! Hate it hate it hate it!!!

To make matters worse I don't think I have my mothers support any more. She keeps asking me to ask my doc about birth control. I don't think our last convo really made her understand I'm trying for a baby.

I'm just so frustrated with this whole thing! Why can't I be pregnant already!!! Holy fucking sigh!

New thread already woohoo! I hope this one is as lucky as the last!

My name is Cristine, Cris for short.
I'm going to be 29 in 2 days! My last year in my 20s! Hopefully it's a lucky year.
I've been TTC since November 2010.
Early miscarriage in March 2011.
Since learned that I have cysts on my ovaries, but other than that, I know nothing. I am seeing a specialist on May 2nd.
I've heard good things about him so hopefully he has a plan for me and I can get a BFP very soon after!

Good luck to all those waiting to test!

Hello my favs!

My name is Nicole, I'm 32; DH is 35
We have a 2 1/2 yr old DD
I live near Seattle Wa
I had a m/c yrs before dh at 8 or 9 weeks.
I went off the pill in Feb. 2011, started actively ttc w/ bbt, etc in May 2011. Got our bfp in July. Had our 9 1/2 wk appt and everything looked good. Went back in at 12 wks to find out we lost our lil' one around 10 or 11 wks. Had a D&C, but it didn't work so we did multiple round of drugs and finally confirmed m/c was done 4 months later! Since then I've been waiting for a "normal" cycle. Feeling pretty good that this next month we'll be ready to start ttc FINALLY!

Nichole: I didn't realize that was your name!? Same names, except I'm "h"less. And of course you can stick around! All these pg girls give us hope! Sometimes its hard to hear those pg announcements around us but its never tough to hear our fellow CTP
girls announce their bfp!

Jil: I can't wait till df gets his shot! WooHoo! I hope we migrate to CMP in May!

Lindsay! It's been a little bit! Happy to see your name on here again!

Alicia: hoping your obsess"less" month pays off! I'll bet it's nice to take a break from bbt!

Brittney: yay for the worst heartburn ever! That kinda feels odd saying that though?! Yay cause thats a great sign and not for the uncomfort!

Cris: it seems like forever that you've been waiting for this appt! Only a couple more weeks now and hopefully you'll be getting some answers! Or a least a "plan" right!?

Joy: I'm so excited to hear how your appt goes! Are they doing an u/s? I'm sorry your friend spilled the beans on ya. Rude.

Jenn: (reply from other post). Sorry about your cousin. That must be so frustrating! And I do remember your friend regarding the abortion. Hopefully since baby is here, she's all in and ready to be a mom! I really hope you get your Spring bfp soon!

I can't remember the rest of the post from other thread, so sorry if I'm missing anyone!

AFM: the funeral went went; as well as they can. The town I live in is really small and a murder is a pretty unusual thing. It so creepy. I scanning the audience thinking what if the murderer is sitting right here?! Weird thought. At the end we all went outside and each of us had a helium balloon. The Grandkids each wrote letters and drew pictures for their Grandma and they attached them to their balloons and we all released them together. I thought that was pretty sweet. All the Grandkids are really young so they were pretty excited about it. :-)

On a happier note, I went to the beach yesterday with dh and dd and had such a great time! The weather was beautiful!

I'm currently 5 dpo so just waiting for af so I can get on to ttc!

Hello ladies,


My name is Caren
My dh and I are both 25
From Australia
Currently work as a retail store manager but would love to be a stay at home mum
We have only been married since Aug 2011 but been together for 6 years
We have been ttc for #1 since July 2011.
I have had 2 MC since ttc with dh.


4 days ago I was one of the lucky ones from the last thread that got

Went to the doctors today and they took heaps of blood because she thinks I may be high risk. She is testing the hcg levels as well to check I have my dates right. I am going for my 1st scan in 2 week and I soooo cant wait. I am starting to feel more excited now... It feels real!

Good luck to everyone in the tww for you all

Caren.

Wow another thread hopefully this one has as many as the March/April one haha! Or at this rate there'll be nobody on here TTC

Well, my name is Lisa.
I am 24 DH is 24 and we have been together for 6 years and married for almost 2. We have a 4yr old DD together. After NTNP for 1yr and TTC for 2yrs we are being sent to the infertility clinic for tests, we have 'secondary infertility' because we already have a biological child together.

I had a missed MC 1 year ago diagnosed at the 13 week scan, I thought I'd get pregnant again quickly but nope.

Good luck everyone lets get some 2013 babies


CYCLE UPDATE:
I am 12dpo today, CD 32 and I have no pregnancy symptoms. Last night I had a headache and I'm grouchy today so I think there's a more than likely chance of AF arriving in about 5 days time. SIGH

Left my baseline appointment and we are adding estrogen to thicken my lining. Hopefully this will solve the problem as to why I can't get knocked up!!! But we also discussed using injectibles instead of clomid next cycle. I decided to go ahead with it because if we do 6 cycles of iui with clomid we can't do anymore as my insurance will only cover 6. so here's hoping this will work!!!

Hey!!

My name is Jenn and Im 25 and so is DH
I have a daughter (5) from a previous relationship and DH has no kids.
We are from Ontario, Canada!

DH and I have been together for 4 years, married since Oct 2010 when we started TTC.

We have had no signs of a BFP at all, but since I already have a daughter and we are still "young" my dr doesnt want to send us to a fertility specialist yet.


Joy: That is horrible that she would do that!!! Its your news to share when your comfortable not hers, not when she feels like it! I agree with some of the other girls that I would not tell this couple anything if they cant be trusted. Other than that how are you feeling? Im so excited to hear about your appointment on Thursday!!

Bumble: Glad to hear your appointment went well, it sounds like you and ur dr have a plan!! Hopefully the estrogen and injectables work for you!!

Bahoward: Hoping the only thing you come down with is morning sickness :D

Lisa: think positive thoughts!!! the witch isnt coming until she shows up! haha

Caren: so happy to hear you get to have a scan!!! cant wait to hear all about it!!

Nicole: Thanks, thankfully my cousin isnt in my area and I am not obligated to go and see her! altho id love to see a baby ( I cant get enough of newborn babies!!) Unfortunately, I have had my friends baby since she yesterday when she got out of the hospital and Im currently coordinating with her mom for her to come and take the baby :S My "friend" hasnt had any interest in her daughter, so her mom is taking custody of her.... This is what frustrates me the most!!

The balloons sound amazing! That is really a scary thought of the person who did it being there, hopefully the police can solve that case to give you some piece of mind!

Cris: cant wait to hear about your appointment in May!!

Snow: Just know that you have all of our support!! I know its hard but it doesnt really matter what anyone thinks as long as you and your partner want a baby! I wish it was as easy as zap your pregnant now! haha

Lindsey: welcome back :D you caught that eggy!!

Nichole: We would love for you to stay, I think someone else already said it but I find that If its someone on here announcing their pregnancy, I am overjoyed for them (And yes a little jealous but not too much) I think it hurts a little less because we have been on your journey with you and we know how much every girl on here has struggled!

AFM: 10 dpo today, a little bit of twinges in my side... thats about all im feeling :S waiting until Sunday (hopefully) to test!

Good morning everyone!

Brittney- it's very blurry but I can see something there! It looks like an ic, you should pick up a frer to back it up! Or get a dollar store test I see a lot of those on here.

Alicia- I hope you get your this month! I personally think there's something to the idea that obsessing over it can hinder your chances. A watched pot never boils, right?

Cris- I turn 29 as well this year, so scary how time goes by. DH and I used to tell everyone, "no kids till we're 30" holy crap we're almost there!

Nicole- thanks!

Caren- congrats! I hope the blood test results bring good news!

AFM I am 5 dpo today, have been hungrier than usual this morning, and was craving the sliced turkey as I was making my husband's breakfast this morning, which is way weird for me as I am a vegetarian. Took my prenatal vitamins this morning, all the time thinking sticky thoughts.

Do any of you ladies take prenatals while you're ttc? Or any vitamins in particular?
