good luck amber! and sticky, sticky baby dust!
well AF appeared a day early on Friday (at least i didnt have to wait a full 2 wks to know whether or not i was preggo)... cycle #2 bring it on
Hey Ladies! It has been a long time since I have written anything, but I continue to follow all of your journeys. I keep signing on waiting to see good news.
Aminor- I am glad you are going to start OPKs.
For those of you who have been around here for a long time...have any of your husbands been tested yet. I am not sure if you remember but after 13 months of trying we did...(turns out we were already pregnant)....but having DH tested is way cheaper then all of of the tests that us ladies go through.
We are starting to talk about trying for our second now. We are really torn. DH test showed that quality and quantity were good...but motility was a little issue...so we are debating whether or not to start trying now or waiting until Bradley is a year old. He is 7 months now. I want the kids to be close in age.....and with our history I am nervous it could take a long time again. I am still BFing and have not had AF yet...so I am also worried that might take a while. Oh ladies....what would you do if you were me...this is such a hard decision!
i guess you have to ask what feels right? could you handle it is you got pregnant right away? i have a friend who tried for a very long time for her first and thought she was in for the same for her second and got pregnant immediately. she was really suprised but also happy with how things turned out. dh and i just started trying for #2 last month, our dd is 15 months and it took us 6 months to concieve after using hormonal bc. i really wanted to concieve this month so that our kiddies would be exactly 2 yrs apart and we had only been using contraceptive gel so we didn't think it would take as long this time. AF is due friday but i couldnt help it and took a test tonight...BFN i didn't think i was preggo tho too many cramp like twinges to be implantation and no other "classic signs". anyway, you never know how it's going to turn out, i guess you kind of have to prepare yourself for both.
i think i have found that planning and trying for #2 has been alot different than #1. soooo many different concerns and logistics that just weren't there last time. also now that we have a child, eventhough we want more, its not as frantic and with #1 and im not as focused on am i or arent i. i do still hope that maybe i am preggo this month and that i just tested too early. when i was preggo with dd i took a urine and blood test the day AF was due and while the urine came back negative the blood came back positive. so ill be saving that other test and keeping my fingers crossed that AF is late
anyway, good luck and baby dust to all!
well, AF showed up this morning...early....again. its only been 2 months and i really wasnt so bummed last month but i am soooooooooooooooooooooo bummed this month. but its only been 2 months so im going to indulge in a pity party until my decaff coffee is done and then start thinking positive thoughts about next month.
good luck and baby dust to the rest of you!
congrats rita!!!!!! thats wonderful!
i just wanted to share the weirdness... i was 100% sure i started AF yesterday, it was light the way it always is and it started first thing in the morning. normal so far. well then today is when it usually gets heavier and by the end of the day im practically flooding. except, that today it seems to have pretty much tapered off. it was never red and i havent had ANY cramping and by day 2 i am usually living on midol. its been pinkish brown and mucosy (sorry if TMI) and like i said it doesnt even seem to be coming anymore. i dont want to get my hopes up since this was NOT what it was like when i concieved our DD. in anycase, im going out to the pharmacy later to get a pregnancy test which i guess ill be taking tomorrow morning if things dont pick up. i secretly have my fingers crossed for a bfp.
has this happened to anyone else??
Hey everyone. I have been MIA for a while. Super busy & then super sick.
Everything is much better now.
Slowly getting better & most of the stress is gone. We are selling our house right now so it is a little stressful.
I had gotten back on BC at my doctor's recommendation for my horrible AF's. I couldn't take it though & have decided to go to a different doctor, so I am hoping he can really help me & figure out what is wrong with me.
We are still not ready to go back to the specialist, so it is just old fashioned TTC for us!
Hey to all the people that are new,or have come back. I have been on here for 3 years now, so I remember you!
SE- I have had that happen before, but it sounds promising for you! I will have everything crossed for you!
Let us know the results ASAP!
Ps/ I started a new April/ May/ June thread!
*TTC CYCLE #40*
