Wannabe May Mommies WMM

Category: Trying to Conceive - TTC My First Child
Posted by magenta » Aug. 10, 2012 4:49am

Hi ladies, I was in the Wannabe March Moms thread and I think there were 4 or so lucky ladies who got their BFP but alot more of us who got BFN. So here's hoping for August or September BFPs which will bring us May babies!

A little about me: I'm 35, from Australia, TTC first baby since mc in March. Just bought a fertility monitor so hoping it's worth the $ because I hate OPKs, haven't started charting yet but will consider it soon.

Join this thread if you WMM too!!!

Hello! I've been ttc for little over 8 years now, I'm hoping that it will happen soon! I plan on purchasing some vitex and raspberry tea when Whole Foods opens this morning.
I tried those fertility moniters and never got them to work :(

Baby dust to all!

I was hoping for an April bundle but just showed up and spoiled that for me. Guess I'm a WMM now!

I'm 27 and DH is 29. We've been married three years, TTC since May, but I didn't have a good cycle until June so technically we've only had two tries so far. We're in good health and my friends have all gotten preg pretty easily (several by accident...) so I thought it would be quick for us. Apparently not! Oh well, we're having fun trying

So far the only thing we've used is OPKs because I had been on BC that made me skip periods so I needed help tracking my cycle as things became regular again. I think we'll keep using them until I'm sure I'm on a regular cycle.

Faylinameir I hope you get a this time! Just think how loved your future little is going to feel when you tell them that you tried for so long .

What CDs are you faylinameir and magenta?

I'm CD4, but my cycles are irregular and I don't have clear ovulation indicators. Nice to meet you WMMs!

I'm CD20 and I think I ovulated CD18, although I'm not sure because I'm new to this ttc thing. My fiance and I have been together 4 years. I'm 20 and he's 22. I'm on prenatals with DHA and I am still getting used to taking my BBT. I forget somedays.... which is totally not good so I need to get on that. Anyway, I am hopeful to conceive this month, then my due date will be in May!

Nice to meet all of you and goooodluck!!

Hi ladies! This mark my 12th month trying. So of course I'm cautiously optimistic. I thought July would be lucky bc I was feeling so positive. No luck. I am 29, DH is 33, married for a year and TTC my first, his 4th!

Good luck and here is hoping we all get BFPs!

Hey All! I've been fluttering around the forums frequently enough that most have heard my story, but the jist of it is, my name is Sarah. I'm a 28 year old from Canada (well ... going to be 28 on the 15th!!) DH is 28 also. We have been together for 11 years (high school sweethearts ), and got married in July of this year. We spent the better part of our relationship trying to prevent pregnancy, and now we're actually going to let it happen. I was on the pill about 7 years ago, but it made me kinda "loopy", so as per my doc's advice, I got off of it right away, so we have been using the condom route ever since. Naturally, I figured as soon as we got hitched we'd get preggers right away -- I know my cylce in and out, and I'm "regular" right down to the hour (both when I ovulate, and when arrives) ... apparently knowing my cycle, and actually conceiving are two different things, however, because after two cycles and hundreds of 's [I'm a POA($store)S addict] I've decided it's going to take a little more than just BD'ing to get this. I'm hoping that with the support of all you lovely ladies, and the wealth of knowlegde I gather from all these forums, that DH and I will have ourselves a healthy bouncing baby come May. :)

Good luck and to all of you. We're all in this together for the laughs, and the tears! I can't wait to take this journey with you!!!

Hello ladies,

Happy to be a WMM!!!! Thanks for starting this one!

I am 25, DH is 25, we were married last July ..unfortunately 2 weeks later we had a terrible accident and I suffered 3rd degree burns and needed skin graft surgery and lots of recovery. Doing fine now mostly but that sure put a wrench in the plans!

So we had originally been planning on waiting a few months to ttc after the wedding but then my cycles went totally crazy, long, irregular ...I had to be put on Provera to kicksstart a cycle in March after not getting one since Dec, then again in June...the stuff makes me crazy so trying to avoid that, and trying to fix my cycle I bought the Fertilitea to regulate my cycles hopefully!!!!!

Soo we've been ttc for several months and I've excused the issues as "my body is still healing" but its been almost a year now and I should have regulated says the doctor. I'm also a little underweight technically so trying to put some on but sadly its hard.

So that's my story, I really feel like we deserve a beautiful baby after all we have suffered, and you all do too! So lets support each other thru to process to be May Mommies!

Thanks so much for listening ...this is the first time I've shared my whole story on here :))

Glad we're getting more WMMs here! Hopefully there will be some BFPs in this group!

I don't know where some of you ladies are but I'm at CD1 today. Started spotting yesterday and hit me full force this morning.

Anyone else early in their cycle?

this month everyone!!!

Hi, all I'm new to all this ( forums)

I'm 33 and from uk, wirral, my man is 32 and we are desprat for a child, prob like most of you on here.
So first of all i'd like to say Hi to all and i feel for allo of you.

I came off the implan in may and we have been trying since then. I have only had one period that wasn't very strong in july ( I usted to be regula before the implan)
I have started to have headaces and dizzyness,I went to see the late doc thurs and she said it vertigo,but asked if I could be preg, i said " I hope so" she told me to take a test in aweek as I advised her I took on mon and it was neg :(

Now I am getting my hopes up tomuch and my fiancey is worried for me, and that I may get to upset !

this is somthing I have always wanted and due to illness was not able to try before.

My sis on the other hand got ill over xmas and ended up preg due to the pill not working and she didn't really want to be, so unfair.

I am CD 5, so gearing up to start prepping for ovulation, well in a week or so.

My friend works as a monitor at a social services organization that provides visitation for parents and their children. Often the children were removed for negative reasons and she always tells me how crappy the parents are. I hate hearing it b/c here I am, ready to be a mom and love a child and to hear these stories upsets me!

Anyway, I am from Kentucky, USA, I love being able to connect with people from all over the world!

Hi ladies ! I am definitely a wmm! Has a miscarriage last month and Hopi this might be the one for us though am finding I am a lot more anxious about the whole ttc thing this month. Getting rather obsessed but trying to calm myself a bit more now ... I am 1 or 2 dpo today ... Had funny opk results 3 days of positives with the darkest second line on Saturday so thinking probably ov Sunday . I live in Australia too and have loved having this site and all the wonderful ladies through this journey. I am 36 dp is 41. I have a 7 year old daughter from a previous relationship but dp and I would love to start own family, especially as I only have my dd. half the time, the rest she is with her dad. I have a metabolic disorder too which makes ttc a little harder ... Strict diet blood tests and regular monitoring , that said I was pregnant first go with my dd but this time is proving more difficult. Being a may mummy would be perfect in a funny way as we would find out we were pregnant pretty much on my dps birthday and then be due on my birthday ! Would also love this month to work as we would really like to have another baby as well and the biological clock is ticking ! Baby dust to all and thanks for starting this thread :-)

Both DH and I are 24. We've been together for 5 years as married for two. We've only been tying since last month. Right now I'm wishing would show because I'm two weeks late and getting BFNs. DH is hoping for a May baby because that's when he was born . Obviously it could take a while longer for us but I'm still hopeful!


Reply by babiessoon » Aug. 12, 2012 5:35pm

This is exciting, so many WMMs!! I'm CD6 so also hoping ovulation isn't too far away.

Doing BBT and maybe OPKs this month.

Looks like most of us are pretty close in our cycles!

Hello ladies :)

12dpo for me today. Took a Hpt test this morning and swore I could see a extreemly faint line straight away, went back later on to take another look just because I couldn't help myself lol and the line seemed darker, having a previous miscarriage makes me jut not want to get my hopes up, but I just can't help it, I really hope that this may be my :) is due tomoro so guess I'll see, if she dosn't turn up I'm still not goin to get my hopes up cause my cycle has been a day or two out lately, may be I'll just re-test in the morning to check and see if it was a nasty evap. Wish me luck :) hopefully this will be our month of positive ladies
