Conception seems like forever
I have four children and had a still birth last year and have been trying to conceive since. I have tried several cycles of clomid and nothing as yet.
I am now on pregnil so I will keep my fingers cross to conceive this month my period is due in a few days.
I am already have pregnancy symptoms but I am thinking its mind over matter but I am indeed looking forward to being pregnant.
Pray for me as I do for you all...Baby Dust and good luck!
IVF - home pregnancy testI am on my 3rd IVF procedure, the embryos were transferred on October 26th. I go for a blood test on November 9th. It is November 4th - I took a home pregnancy test today and it was positive! I know, I am on fertility meds, but if it remains positive up to the 9th, can I assume that my blood test will be positive with the doctor?
Please help if ANYONE KNOWS OR HAS GONE THROUGH THIS BEFORE. My last two times, I never got a positive test.
The waiting gameIt's amazing to read all these entries of women just like me who are hoping, wishing and praying to be a mom...I used to think that I was the only one who feels like this. And to think that I spend agonizing hours wallowing in my miseries only to find out that I am not alone in this and that there are still others as pained as I am. Everywhere I look, every turn I make there are babies all around. It hurts to look but I can't seem to stop myself. I know what it feels like to want something so bad that you physically hurt.
I haven't told my family or friends about all that I feel for fear that they would not understand. I just pray everyday and do what we can to make it possible. My husband and I play the waiting game, leaving us both drained out and depressed when we do not win. But at the end of the day, when tears were shed and prayers said I still manage to keep my hopes up once again, that maybe. Just maybe...tomorrow will be the day.
Bad newsHi ladies, well my husband and I have been ttc for 3yrs without success.
On October 16&17 we did our first iui/w clomid, and it is sad for me to say that my beta was negative. I am upset and I feel like there's no hope for me.
I feel like I've given up, but I know I can't b/c I want a baby so bad.
Sad and blueMy name is Rolanda. I have been trying to have another child for almost a year without any success. I never experienced this let down before. When I was younger I was so fertile now all of that has changed I have spent so much money in the hopes of getting pregnant again, but every month my period shows like clock work. I try to hide my feelings because I do have children.
