Hoping for an April baby

Category: Waiting to Ovulate - Pinpointing Ovulation
Posted by baby3please » Jul. 9, 2012 4:46pm

Well after miscarrying in May & not getting pregnant in June, really hoping this is the month for us. Hubby was born in April and we were married in April, so really thinking April is a good month for our baby ;) Counting down the days to O!!

Hoping for an April baby here too....hubby and I have been trying for #1 for almost 2 years now with no luck. Unfortunately I hurt my knee at work last week, which is going to make it hard to bd but I'm willing to have a little pain if it means that this month is the month. Really hoping the stress of injuring myself doesn't mess up my cycle though, I'm notorious for that. Lol. Lots of luck and !

Hello Ladies,
I am joining your group if that is ok. Today I found out I had a chemical pregnancy, I was 4wks 6days along. I'm pretty devastated and my dh is trying so hard to be there,but he just doesn't know what to say....

We've only been trying to conceive since April 2012, but I'm pretty devastated. Especially, since I thought this pregnancy was my dream come true. My bestfriend is (she still is preggers) one week ahead of me. I was so excited for our journey together.

I'm trying to make peace with it and the possibility that my body knew the embryo was not healthy, but I can't help but feel deep sadness and disappointment. I want to look forward to April 2013 and feel strong enough to remain optimistic for our future as a family.

It's not just the ttc or the tww, it's the whole journey that take so much faith and strength.

pinkbride2011 I am the positive reinforcement u need :) I miscarried 1 month before conceiving my 2nd child. and I was almost 3 months. the farther along u r the harder it is to have to start all over, but let me tell u, all we want r healthy babies right :) this time I cried the night I read the test say negative after a week of positives, but my wonderful husband said "don't worry honey, we know we can get pregnant, it will happen again" he's awesome! we too have been trying since April. got pregnant on our 2nd attempt, we were stoked. but I know miscarriages happen for a reason and was so glad it happened a month in instead of 3. keep ur head up & keep trying. the good thing is u know u r both fertile! baby dust to all of us here :) I should be ovulating around the 19th so lets try harder then we have this month ladies :)

Thank you for the sentiments ladies! It is a new day and a new opportunity!

baby3please, thank you so much for your encouragement! You and your wise dh are so right. At least we know we CAN conceive and I am grateful it happened sooner rather than later. That must have been devastating, but your positive outlook speaks volumes about your character. Despite my somewhat Debbie Downer post yesterday, I like to keep things optimistic and find the silver lining.... so I'm on to cycle #4 and looking forward to the possibilities.

I'm counting my blessings. My husband is so amazing, he may not have had the words to say, but he brought home flowers, sushi and a nice bottle of wine (I had 3 glasses, lol).

The other thing I'm taking from this... I may need a new ob-gyn. I was told to take a month off from trying and not to test before 21dpo anymore if I don't want to be disappointed. But, if I'm vomitting (as I was) I'm going to try to figure out what is wrong with me. Why would I need to stop trying? It all just seemed a little insensitive. I'm worried if they're this insensitive early on, how uncomfortable will they make me when I'm crazy hormonal or delivering? I'll admit I'm probably a bit of a high maintenance patient, but when it comes to medical stuff, I don't like to feel like my dr is dismissive. Anyone have opinions on selecting and ob-gyn? What characteristics do you find helpful, comforting and necessary?

Hi ladies, I'm also hoping this is my month.. Been ttc for 9 months now for baby no.4.... Had no probs with 2 DD and DS. Since then I have had 1 mc and cervical surgery so it's proving tricky this time around! So far I've only done the bd routine, so this month I'm starting OPKs too... Would be great to have some like minded people to post OPK and HPT results with!

I'm due to ovulate on 25th I think, but this is my first month OPK'ing so not entirely sure! Can't wait to start the 2ww, even tho it's agonising at least by then it's too late to do anything else about it! Xx

Lia even without OPK's you can go by your menstrual cycle. I do both. I am a 28 day cycle so I usually ovulate around the 14th day of my cycle. First day of my last period was the 6th which puts me to ovulate on the 19th. So I usually start with the OPK's like 2 days before that to just kind of double check :-)

Hey ladies,
I am also hoping for an April baby. It is so hard to actually know when you ovulate. I average 27days for my cycle month before last was 27 this past month 26. I think I ovulated yesterday or today. I do not chart, but just try to listen to my body and check cervix and CM. Fingers crossed, we timed everything right. We have bd 4 out of the 5 fertile days, and when I was the most fertile. Sending User Image your way and hoping for User Image

Hello everyone! We're trying for our 2nd. CP this past April. Currently on second round of clomid. I have 30-32 day cycles. I'm on cd 7. Our first son was born in April, so why not have another April baby! Good luck everyone.

Hi Jennc!

We should OV around the same time! Good luck for this month, fingers crossed we both get some happy news ;)

Are you OPK'ing?

If you don't mind me asking, what resulted in you being put on Clomed? I plan on seeing doc after the summer if still not conceived by then, and wondering what the treatment path would be!

Thanks!

Hi Ladies,
I hope its ok for me to join this group. My husband and I are TTC our 1st child together. I have childre from a previous marriage but he doesn't have any. I had my TR done last month 6/29. We are using OPK's and got a positive reading today. This is my first time using it and wanted to know, how long after getting a positive reading should I expect to ovulate (I keep reading 12-36 hours). He's so excited and was also born in April. I wish everyone luck and have fun BD.
