Emergen-C and Preseed!

Posted by babymama11
My husband and I got married in November and decided to take out my Mirena in January and TTC. My Mirena was removed on Jan 2, and I had withdrawal bleeding and I think a short period a couple of days after removal. Had a positive OPK in January, but did not conceive.

My husband had expressed concern that we might have a hard time conceiving, as he had never had any "scares" before he was with me (he does have one child, but thought we'd have some difficulty - plus we are in our 30s). We did not have an SA done. However, I did A LOT of research on fertility products. I first looked at the ingredients of FertilAid (for Men and Women), and other pills. Then, I looked at some actual scientific research and studies (journals published by PhDs on education (.edu)l and .gov websites -very reliable sources). It seemed the main things that could help count, morphology and motility were Vitamin C, B-complex vitamins and Zinc. So, I had the hubby take two Emergen-C packets a day and an extra 50mg zinc pill. We also used preseed this cycle for the first time. Something worked! Not sure which, but maybe a combination :)

This cycle, I got a positive OPK on CD 11 - this was cool because "11" is our number. I imagined finding out I was pregnant at 11DPO :) Well - at 11 DPO (11 days after positive OPK - not sure when I really O'd because I never noticed any EWCM), I got my first faint positive on a Wondfo. Then, I tested on every other brand in the house and got positives on all of them. Today, I got positive results on an FRER, EPT digital and CBE digital. It still hasn't really sunk in yet, but I am sooo happy!

Lots of baby dust and good luck to all of you ladies TTC!

Posted by jenniob
Hi Ladies,

This was our 3rd month trying. The main symptoms i have had this month which were different from previous months are:

. Awful cold which started 3dpo
. My boobs feel full and heavy
. Hot and cold flashes
. Increased cm which was white and creamy
. Stuffy nose
. Hunger pains in the morning (i don't normally eat in the morning)
. 10dpo started having cramps / pulling sensation
. very dry mouth

We also used preseed this month for the first time.

I am in complete shock!!!

Good luck and baby dust to you all!!!

I'm 42 years old and have 2 sons aged 15 and 8.
Last July I came off the pill as I decided I wanted to try for another child. My bf decided he didn't want any children as he already has 2 from a previous partner but agreed for me to do IUI with donor sperm...this wasn't an easy decision but I really wanted a baby. I did 3 IUI's with NO medication or triggers or anything from September to December and each time they were negative! As you can imagine I was disappointed but it's so expensive so I knew that was the end of that road. My bf and I had a long talk and decided to try to have a baby together.
We live apart so were not together when I O'd in December and in January but made a loving date for the 14th of Feb Valentine's Day!!!! That was my CD12 and I usually detect my surge on that day. We had a fantastic day and I used Preseed which I might add I'd only ever used for the first time and it was very dramatic me trying to put it in before he got into the house so it wouldn't be so obvious needless to say it went everywhere except where it was supposed to go and I ended up giggling like a teenager in the bathroom lol.
Anyway I finally got a little bit in and it was perfect. The next day bf went back home and I continued life as normal...2 days later I felt 'O' twinges and prayed that the sperm was still waiting!! On either 6dpo or 7dpo I felt definite cramps which I wrote down in my diary as I was monitoring everything! The day after which was either 7dpo or 8dpo I had been having a funny metallic taste in my mouth the whole day and I decided to do a HPT test with the internet cheapies that detect 10miu I left it for about 20 mins as I didn't think for the life of me that it would be positive but when I looked there were definitely 2 PINK lines and the test line was unmistakable! I was in shock. I thought it was an evap so I did another one with same tests and it was negative. Next morning same thing..negative so I went out and bought the FRER and the next morning with FMU I did the test and there was a very faint positive (9dpo)!!! I was still cautious and did another FRER on 11dpo and it was darker and more visible. Then I bought the Clearblue Digitals and took a test 12dpo when my af was due and it says PREGNANT 2-3!!!.

I am over the moon as I've wanted this for ages and I can't believe that it's happened so quickly. I don't know what happened with the IUI's and donor sperm but I can see why the success rates with those are so low!
I'm proof that dreams can come true even for ladies in their 30's and 40's, and you don't need expensive methods to help conceive if there is nothing wrong with your fertility, just keep trying and being positive. I look on the site and lot's of the ladies are so young in their 20's and I used to keep my fingers crossed that one day that would be me and now it is.

I've learned so much from this site especially from a very special friend (she knows who she is) and I'll be forever grateful.
Good luck to everyone and BABY DUST TO US ALL! X x x x x x x x X

Pregnant after second trimester loss

Posted by brittwh18
We lost our son on September 7th, 2012. After I healed we decided that we weren't trying but weren't preventing anything either. In January I got my hopes up thinking I was pregnant. Turns out we had a chemical pregnancy. I felt like I had been teased, so decided February was our month. This will happen! Went to the Dr on February 7th, she suggested getting an ovulation predictor kit, and use that. She mentioned that she thought I was ovulating that day. So I went and got a 20 test kit. Mind you I had never used these things before ever. Turns out I was ovulating that day! Even though I was very confident that had ovulated I was still using the tests, I wanted to see how they worked, and also be sure I had indeed caught my LH surge! I used them every day 2 times a day, AM and PM. I kept thinking that the test line would slowly fade, to my surprise nope! I had almost positives everyday. I purchased some 10 mIU sensitive pregnancy tests off the internet. Started testing on valentines day, and got my very first very faint positive. I tested everyday for 6 days! Faint positives everyday, they were not obvious faint positives you had to really look, but they were certainly there! I ran out of tests, and waited 2 days before testing again. I kept telling myself I was only gonna test if AF was late, but my symptoms were just too crazy, and I just knew. I had sore breasts, really crampy, horrible moods wings, very emotional, sharp ovary pain, sorry TMI but I kept getting sharp pains in my hoo-ha lol. So I sent my husband to get me some first response tests, positive almost right away!! At 12 days past ovulation, i got my promising positive!! I'm pregnant! Due October 31st 2013.

Honestly didnt know I was pregnant with my first baby...

So me and dh have been trying for about 7-8months. This month I bought a Clearblue fertility monitor, soft cups, 800mg of folic acid every day, and victiams every day. The day before O me and dh only bd one time and that was the day before O. A week till af I noticed some different thing
1. Headaches all the time
2. Breakout in Pimples
3. I was getting more cranky
4. I was having cramps â?? the weird thing is my cramps are very painful during af. But these didnâ??t hurt as much kinda like gurgling poking and slight cramps.
I thought I was out for the month and started prepping for af. A few days ago my step daughter 9yo. Said â??when and how many kids are you and dad going to have?â?? I looked at her and told her â??I want three but I may not even have one.â?? She said â??why wouldnâ??t you be able to?â?? I told her â??sometimes women canâ??t have children for unknown reason that may be me.â?? (She has a IQ of a genius. Seriously) I didnâ??t understand what made her ask that. Since thatâ??s only the second time she has ever mentioned have a sibling. The next morning I tested and got bfp. Then the morning after that I got bfp. Yesterday I told my husband and showed him the test; he had me go to the store and get a different brand just in case. Those turned positive right away. So now I am almost 5 weeks pregnant, my step daughter and husband are always looking at name( which I just wanna pick one off my top 5 for both girl and boy but they say theres plently of time. )

When I really sit down and think about it. I didnâ??t notice any pregnancy symptoms till after I found out I was pregnant. It really just felt like my period. So with that being said. Donâ??t think itâ??s to late because youâ??re having af symptomsâ?¦.. BABY DUST!
