This is so crazy - I told you I have had a really good feeling about the past few "cycles" ! Do they know why you've still been getting af?? OMG I am seriously just so excited for you!!! Come over to cmp and join the byob thread there too!! Did you get u/s photos?? LoL, sorry lots of questions I know I am just SO happy and excited for you!!!!

I just posted on the last thread, but I guess I will start again on this one.

Intro:
My name is Jessica. Both DH and I are 30. We've been TTC #1 since Sept 2010.

Got pregnant Nov 2010, but lost our little girl at 18 weeks to a Neural Tube Defect. Had a D&C and had to wait 3 months to ttc again.

Got pregnant July 2011, but lost another little girl to another NTD at 17 weeks. Had a D&C and was told to wait another 3 months before ttc again.

Got pregnant April 2012, but lost that baby to an early miscarriage at 5 weeks, naturally. Doctor told us to wait at least 2 cycles, but we decided to try right away as we were tired of waiting.

I am currently 7 or 8 dpo on my first cycle after the m/c. No symptoms yet, but still hopeful.

Hi Im Jenn, Im 25 and so is DH. I have a 5 year old daughter from a previous pregnancy and found out on Saturday Im actually 18 weeks pregnant!!! so weird to say that! haha

Joy: I have been asking all the questions too!!! I cant believe Im 18 weeks and didnt even think to test! I just assumed that I got AF on time each month so Im not pregnant. I have noticed that AF has been a bit lighter but I just figured cycles change! We have always said that we arent going to find out what the baby is... 9 months isnt that long to wait for the suprise!! haha. I have only been able to talk to the dr at the hospital and all he said was, some women continue to get it their whole pregnancy and I need to discuss with my dr (have an appointment tomorrow so Ill definately be asking ALOT of questions!!) As for pictures, she told me that they are the emergency ultrasounds in the hospital and arent equipped to give me a picture, so Ill have to wait for a real ultrasound :'( Ill definately be over to CMP!!

Hi ladies!

Jenn - That sucks that you didnt get any photos, but I am sure at 18 weeks they will probably be sending you for an u/s soon anyway! I am assuming tomorrow's dr visit will be a busy one, lots of tests to do and everything to catch up on! So exciting!! I can't wait to hear all about it!
It was seriously such a good thing I was home alone when I read your reply about finding out you were preggo... I actually shrieked!! LoL! (And then continued to bounce around a do a little dance! LoL!) Super excited for you!!

Jess - Can't wait for Sunday for you to test!! They say after a m/c you are extra fertile for a few months... hopefully it's true and you get your bfp this cycle & an extra sticky little bean!

AFM - Nothing new since I posted like half an hour ago.... lol Staying home this afternoon with another sick little nephew. Fun, fun!

xx Joy

Hello! Im Amber and new to this website. I found this thread from the previous one, and couldn't stop reading! Im 27 and my DH is 29. We have been together for 7 years and married since May 2010. We spent our first 13 months married apart. He got back from Iraq in September and after recovering from an injury we have been TTC since last month.

Last month I was 100% sure I was preggers. I had all kinds of crazy symptoms (now Im thinking that they were all in my head)! I was super fatigued and had a headache that wouldn't go away.

Anyway the AF arrived and it was a torturous one at that. Now Im on month #2 of ttc and I am currently 9 dpo. This time the only thing different I notice is a little fatigue, restlessness at night, viivd dreams and the last two days I had crazy sharp stabbing pains around my left ovary. Now those are gone. Im still hoping for a ! I'll keep posting.

Thank you Joy for sharing your news. Im especially excited for Jenn! That's crazy good news .

Amber

I love this thread!

Hi, I'm Lindsay (28) and DH (29) and we live in Texas with our 2 dogs, a Westie and a Miniature Schnauzer. We have been ttc casually since summer 2011 and aggressively since February 2012! Got pg in November but it was ectopic and I lost a tube so now determined with a capitol D to get pg again! But they say your chances don't go down too much, and I am having all the signs of ovulating so I'm staying positive!

Today is CD 14 and I have had positive OPKs since Monday. We Sunday night and this morning, didn't yesterday as we had a scare that we were gonna lose our income (we own a business) and for a couple crazy hours I had myself convinced that we should stop ttc due to our possible loss of income. Then I thought about it, realized that life is too short and you can't wait for the perfect time, and we got back into the swing of things this morning. For those few hours though it was so nice not to think about it anymore!

Still very wet today so I don't think I have ovulated yet. Another poster said I should count ovulation as the day my cm switches to dry and sticky, so that's what I'm waiting for. Plan to do some more tonight and increase our chances.

Welcome to all the new posters!

Good luck to all you ladies. May will be our month for blessings

Hi everyone!

Wow, this is my 3rd thread with you all!

I am 22, DH is 23, we've been married 3 years and 4 months! Went on the pill about 6 months before I got married and just went off shortly after Christmas. Was careful the first 2 months then started to track my timing in March. No luck yet, I believe I am 9 DPO, my breasts are very sore but AF is also expected Saturday. We barely, just barely (if not missed), made the window this month as he was out of town. I am starting to feel the usual pulling/cramping I feel 2-3 days before AF arrives, so I've determined I'm out this month, for sure.

I live in Seattle with 2 dogs, work at Microsoft, would much rather be a stay at home mom and pup mom! Someday, and soon, I'm sure! DH is a Software Engineer.

Hoping for so many this thread! I can't believe the stories I've seen on this site.

Jenn, I can't BELIEEEEEEEEEVE this!! I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy for you. This put a big smile on my face as I read this today. and please keep us updated. Strange AF kept coming, but I guess it's not that uncommon. Just odd, I haven't really heard of that with somebody I "know" before. I texted everyone I know

Hoping the evil witch stays away, but I'm 100% certain she's coming on Saturday. Hoping to every other day this entire cycle. TMI: Somebody on the previous thread mentioned lots of "DH liquid" and couldn't stay still after BD'ing. I can NEVER stay still afterwards...there's so much it goes everywhere if I don't get up and immediately clean up. I always thought it just comes right back out, but could that mean it's just abnormally a lot? He's the only person I've ever been with, so I don't know these things lol. Maybe that's good?

Anyone ever have regular AF cramps before experiencing a BFP? I know 'it's not over till the witch shows' but it's hard when everything feels the same, except the sore breasts.

abc and elle, from what I have read some men have more semen fluid and it doesn't always mean a higher sperm count. The only way to find out would be have his sperm analysed. All I can say is I don't have that problem and he makes sure a stay still.

Hello,
I'm Tricia and I'm 28, DH is 27. We've been married for 2+1/2 years and recently bought our first home in December. I'm a Speech Pathologist and DH is an Air Traffic control specialist.
I have multiple sclerosis so I've been taking medications for that for the past 10 years. While on the meds pregnancy is a NO-NO since it could damage or abort the fetus. We decided this was the year we'd TTC so I needed to go off the meds for 4-5 months minimum before we try. DH and I made the desicion to go off meds Feb 15 2012. So I'm a few months off and my target date is August to finally start TTC! We are so anxious and excited. I'm charting my BBT and CM but haven't done any other things since we don't know if we will have any issues with fertility yet. God I hope not! I'm scared to get sick before we even get a chance to try since I'm not taking any medicine right now. Please wish us good luck and baby dust that when we finally do the happy dance we will get prego right away---I can't be off this medicine forever!

Hi. My name is Jil. I'm 25. Dear fianc�© is 28. We've been trying since November 2011. Df has a son from a previous relationship (8). In january I found out I was pregnant just hours after I started to miscarry. I don't temp or use opks. I'm gonna start temping next cycle.

My first bfp was after df got a shot that increases sperm count. I know if he got this shot again we'd be successful. But df wants to stay natural.

That being said I think I'm pregnant this cycle. I don't have any symptoms other than sore boobs but I'm positive. I had a test while in hospital at 6dpo. Negative but it was too soon. I'm going to hold off and wait for AF before I test. Af is either due tomorrow or the 16th. We'll see. If I conceived this cycle it would have been in a hospital bathroom. What a great story that is.

Good luck to everyone!!!

Trisha - I hope you don't have any symptoms from lack of medication and you and DH are able to get pg quickly.

AFM - So this morning around 10:30 I started getting AF type cramps. Like the ones that make your abdomen feel heavy and bloated. The all of a sudden, about 30 mins later they were gone. Have not had any cramps since then. Not sure what this means because I still feel my body is adjustiing since the m/c, but I am 7-8 dpo so maybe it was implantation cramping??? Hopefully I'm not just getting my hopes up for nothing.

Hello again!

I was feeling pretty good about my BFP chances this month until about a couple hours ago. I usually get mild AF type cramps a few days before I start and I just got some of those again! Is it possible to still be pregnant and have the pre- af cramps?

hi everyone

Im Katie 30, DH is almost 32!
trying for about 16 months now which for me is probably about 20 cycles! Preg in Oct 2011 but turned out to be ectopic and was removed in emergency surgery along with my left fallopian tube. Was supposed to have an appointment with fertility specialist Noc 2011 but cancelled it as i was preg!

Nothing since so new appointment 24th May, two weeks today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hoping its going to be as simple as DH works away so they will do artifical insemination and bob your uncle a baby in the belly!!

think about 4 dpo right now but DH left for work about 5 days before O so not holding out any hope for this cycle.

Jen, excellent news!! it is the most bizarreee thing!!! but i bet the best surprise EVER!!!

cant type much more, away for work so need to get out to sort out the boys as they cant be trusted on their own!!

Gummy and Armywife - if i have learnt anything over my journey, its that there is little difference between PMS and preg symptoms!!! when i was preg, i didnt even realise having had what i thought was my period, i tested on a random whim after someone commented that i was glowing!! otherwise i had No symptoms what so ever!

isnt life a bitch! why cant it be easy. this symptom means pms, this symptom means preg! see, its not hard!
