About Me / My Trying to Conceive StoryDecember 2012 - I was very fortunate to conceive last November 2011, and had an overall wonderful pregnancy and birth. My beautiful baby girl is now 4.5 months old, and I absolutely love every second I have with her. It was clear to both my boyfriend and I that we would want more children, but I by no means expected to be back on this site so soon! On my birthday, which happened to be the day I believe I ovulated after just recently getting my cycles back, we had a very romantic evening which ended... ahem... in the bedroom. Our bc failed, and we of course, freaked out. I've been obsessing over "what if" over the past few days, and have realized that I've started to become kind of excited of the possibility of another baby. It's not ideal timing - I've just started my dream job and I still would like to lose the 7lbs to get back to my pre-pregnancy wieght - but I can help but be thrilled about the possibility of another new little bundle of joy. So, I'm back in the game of obsessing over every possible symptom. I guess only time will tell! I'm sure I'll be POAS soon!!
September 2011 - I am 31, boyfriend is 33, and we've been together for 6+ years. At the beginning of this year (2011) we decided we would start trying for a baby in the summer. I went off the pill (Yaz) at the end of May, and 3 weeks later we found out we were pregnant! We were overcome with feelings of total & utter excitement, mixed with disbelief that it happened so fast! It didn't take long to start falling in love with the little life we had created, and we were blessed to see a little bean and heartbeat at 8 weeks. At 10 and half weeks, I experienced some spotting, and we were devastated to find out I was miscarrying. We decided to let it happen naturally, and then experienced what my doctors called an "unusually long" miscarriage. I finally started a new cycle at the end of September, and now looking forward to seeing that positive pregnancy test again. Though I know I'll be a much more apprehensive this time, we are trying to keep a positive attitude and looking forward to starting our family...
