My early pregnancy story
We tried for over an year before we got pregnant...I think itís first GODíS GRACE and HIS BLESSINGS and he knows the right time for you. So u just hang in there pray a lot and try for one year without any prejudice. Fuel up on your folic acid and see get your husbandís semen viscosity checked, if everything else or both of you are normal...
My early pregnancy signsI went off birth control and I wanted to make sure I was off bc for at least 2 months to allow my cycles to be natural so I could calculate my ovulation dates better. I knew my cycle had returned to a normal state when I got my period 4 days earlier than I used to. On bc my period was like clock work!! In trying to get pregnant I checked for all the signs-calculated ovulation, cervical mucus and tuning into my body during ovulation (i.e. sharp cramps). Here were my pregnancy signs:
1-6 dpo-extremely tired-I mean falling asleep watching TV. At 7:30 p.m., yawning all day long at work
7-8 dpo-very twingy cramps (1 was enough to wake me up), and nipples were sore and had strange shooting feelings in my left breast. My breasts just looked fuller and felt heavier. Just felt I needed to cry and I cried like crazy! Still super tired
9-11 dpo-felt very nauseous and occasionally dizzy. At this point I would usually start PMS cramps and did not get any
12 dpo-nauseous, very tingly feeling in vaginal area
I did a test and got a very distinct +.
For every symptom I felt I tried to rationalize-oh, I'm just tired, what I ate disagreed with me, maybe by breasts get sore in PMS, etc. I was trying to prepare for a negative so I wouldn't be disappointed. In hindsight although these symptoms could be PMS, but I never got strong PMS symptoms until at least 3 days before my period.
JessMy husband and I are ttc. It has been 7 months now and when I came off the pill I just expected to be pregnant right away.. That didnt happen, as my periods are not regular. I haven't had a period for 55 days now and a neg test. I am driving myself crazy thinking about it. I am not sure what to do?
I want a childI am 16 years old I donít have a baby and I'm not pregnant but I want a baby so bad. I've only been with my wonderful man for 7 months but I want a baby. We both live with his parents and we think we should wait until we get our own place, heís 21, we both want a baby but not yet.
Story of InfertilityMy husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for about 1 1/2 years. At the beginning I thought it was going to happen pretty fast and I was not thinking about infertility issues because we both have children from previous marriages. After trying for such along time I finally talked to my Dr. about the issue I was having.
He suggested that I have a HCG test done to check my fallopian tubes for blockage. The test showed that both were blocked, and I was told that I would not be able to conceive unless I had surgery to unblock my tubes. I was devastated, and in shock. How could this happen? I was not sure right away if I was going to have the surgery or not. My husband and I continued our sexual relationship as normal, not putting a lot of pressure on the best days to conceive because it obviously wouldnít do us any good.
I cancelled my first Dr's appointment that was made. They wanted to do blood work and an ultrasound on day 21 of my cycle to check some things out. I just wasnít feeling up to going right away. That was in August of 07, here it is October 8 07, and I just found out that I am 5 weeks pregnant.
Both my husband and I are in shock, and somewhat in misbelief, the dr. said it wasnít possible! When I found out my tubes were blocked I searched the internet and read many great stories on how they were able to get pregnant naturally, I never thought that I would be able to share a story like that, but here it is! The only thing I can really contribute to getting pregnant is a lot of prayer and hope. I never gave up the possibility that it could still happen, and I prayed every night that it would. I have also been told that when you stop putting so much pressure on trying to get pregnant, you will get pregnant! I am living proof of that. To others out there that are going through the same situation I wish you all the best of luck. Keep praying and trying and it will happen to you!
