Took a HPT the day before my expected period even though I had PMS cramps and hadnt experienced anything else. We werent really trying this month because hubby had the flu while I thought I was ovulating. I guess I ovulated sooner than expected! Was shocked when I saw two pink lines!

Didnt really have any symptoms other than the mild cramps that I thought were AF coming. Thinking back though, I was a bit unsteady on my feet the day before and had a touch of a headache which I had attributed to the weather. Nose was a bit runny for the last few weeks. I had noticed an increase in CM but it was watery so didn't think much of it. The day I tested CM was thick white/yellowish. Its been three days now and nothing has changed. No real symptoms. It hasnt really sunk in yet!

I had the mirena IUD for 4 years. Started feeling like a crazy person and didnt trust it so had it removed. Caused all kinds of nasty symptoms. I was told it could take up to a year for my body to readjust. That was Nov. 10, 2014. AF came after a couple weeks. had a 30 day cycle. Next cycle must have been a bit shorter! Tested positive Jan. 26th. Just hope it sticks. Have heard a lot about multiples and the mirena right out of the gate. Would be blessed to have twins (being a twin myself), but nervous of complications.

Anyway, thrilled with the BFP and wish the best to you all. Its hard not to obsess about analyzing every symptom but like I said, I hardly noticed anything and tested just for the heck of it! Sticky baby dust to all!

I Think We Are Pregnant

Posted by utbabymomma
My DH and I have been together for over 8 years and married for 2. We are both 36 yrs old. We have been trying since November (2014) so this month was our 3 month trying. Last month I spotted early, was sick and vomitted several day, had all the pregnancy symptoms. I am never late and I have been charting my cycles for 3 years. I was 6 days late then AF showed up. I was crushed. I started New Years Eve and was so depressed I cancelled all of our plans and went to bed early.

Fast forward to this month . . . . this time I took musinex (I was also battling a cold so it served 2 purposes), drank grapefruit juice (just 2 days) and that's it. I had felt like this time didn't work for us so I ordered male and female fertility vitamins, preseed, ovulation monitor- the works. I was definitely gearing up for February to try again. I haven't had many "real" symptoms this month. My BBs are a bit tender, moody/edgy and I have been exhausted but I chalked all of this up to getting my period. Last night (13 dpo and 2 days before AF) I had a sharp pinching pain in my lower abdomen. It was very bizarre and kept happening for about 2 hours (then I fell asleep). This morning I decided not to test but once I got into work I had this nagging feeling to just try again with an early pregnancy test. I took the test but I had left my glasses at home. I couldn't really tell what was happening with either line so I called my sister. We work together so she came to take a look and she confirmed there were 2 lines!!! I am cautiously optomistic. Part of me is worried it is a false positive or an evap line. I have been so worried for so long I am just hoping that we get the confirmation that we are in fact pregnant and all goes swimmingly. Wishing baby dust to all. XoXo

My miscarriage was my biggest blessing

Posted by wantababynow
It has been over two years but it still stings to think about my past experience. I feel fortunate that my hopes and dreams turned out the way I always wished, but it happened in an unexpected way. Here is my story.

I was happily married for two years. I was young and healthy and I did all of the right things prior to even considering having children. I never smoked, I never did drugs and I barely drank alcohol. I took pre-natal vitamins for three months prior to trying to conceive. Besides a prior appendectomy and an occasional cyst, I thought I would get pregnant immediately. One of my friends joked that my husband would probably breathe on me and I would get pregnant.

It took about 3-4 months for me to figure out the "right" time to try and conceive. Prior to all this research, I actually thought I could have unprotected sex at any time during the month and get pregnant....Whoops.

Well, I did get pregnant and it was and still is one of the most exciting moments of my life. I loved, loved, loved seeing that double line on the pregnancy test show up. I took so many tests just to assure myself. Our family was ecstatic and we were glowing with excitement.

When my first ultrasound came we were beaming. That is until the technician looked concerned and took too many pictures. I felt it in my gut and when people say it felt like they were punched in the stomach, I now know what that feeling is. We were told there was no heartbeat and worse than that I had a massive cyst the size of a cantelope that would need further evaluation. In one short morning all of my dreams were crushed.

I ended up needing a pretty extensive surgery but I was definitely looked out for by something greater. I was fortunate to find out my cyst was benign and I did not require any ovaries to be removed. It was a pretty sad few months, but I got pregnant soon after with our beautiful, beautiful daughter.

Sometimes it is difficult to think that I felt tortured for several months - whether finding out I first miscarried, needed surgery or trying to conceive again. Now when I look back it seems almost like a blink of an eye, but I know that it is the worst and longest periods of a woman's life when all she wants is to find out she is pregnant and for that pregnancy to be healthy.

For me, I was blessed by my miscarriage because I wouldn't have found out about a serious condition. And I wouldn't have my daughter. So, somehow it all worked out.

It may not seem like it during the times you are crying, begging, and stressing but it does work out. I promise.

Pregnant after 6 1/2 years on our 6th IVF attempt!

Posted by mnor0406
Our journey to baby felt like an eternity but we are finally expecting a little miracle in June! I hope our story will give those who have been TTCing for a long time some hope!

I threw away my bcp in March of '08 before getting married in November of '08 because we decided that whatever happens happens and if it happened by accident that would great! After 3 years with no pregnancies I was diagnosed with PCOS and started 7 rounds of clomid. Again, no pregnancies with clomid. Then my hubby was tested and it was discovered that he had a very low sperm count, low motility and borderline morphology. We moved on to a fertility specialist at that point and decided to try IUI since my insurance covered it 100%. After 4 IUI's with no pregnancies again we decided it was finally time to move on to IVF.

Luckily, we have very supportive family who helped us come up with the $15,500 upfront payment otherwise IVF may not have been in our future. We qualified for a refund program and paid for 6 rounds of IVF upfront with the contract stating that if we did not have a baby after all 6 rounds we would get 75% of that initial payment back. Out of the first 5 IVF cycles, I got pregnant on 2 fresh cycles and 1 frozen but miscarried around the 5-6 week mark every time. Knowing we only had 1 shot left and were tapped out financially because we had spend an additional $10,000-$15,000 on meds and other fees, we started researching surrogacy and asked some family and friends if they would be willing to be a surrogate for us without compensation.

However, my doctor and I had a plan that we were going to throw everything possible at this 6th frozen transfer and our final try. We did an endometrial scratch on the cycle before to give the embryos a better place to burrow and I also started a full month of antibiotics to eliminate any infections or inflammation. I also started steroids before the embryo transfer to reduce the chances that my body would reject the embryo as a foreign body, blood thinning injections to reduce clotting, baby aspirin to increase blood flow and also help reduce clotting and doubled my progesterone supplementation to include PIO injections and crinone suppositories. We transferred 2 embryos on October 11th, one hatching and one expanding, I got my first faint positive at 5dp5dt on October 16th and my first beta came back at 165 on 9dp5dt on October 20th! We saw the heartbeat of 1 beautiful baby at 6 weeks and a 2nd sac that only had a yolk sac. Unfortunately the 2nd baby never developed and the sac was absorbed. I continued steroids until I was 9 weeks pregnant and progesterone until I was 14 weeks pregnant. I will continue to take blood thinning injections for my entire pregnancy.

I am currently 17 weeks pregnant and we had our 4th ultrasound today! We found out that we are having a little GIRL! I was so hesitant to write a success story after 3 miscarriages but I finally feel confident that this will be our take home baby! There were so many days when I just wanted to give up and accept that we would not have children but I am so glad that I just kept pushing myself to keep trying! Never give up on your dream ladies!
