Trying to get pregnant is an exciting time in a woman's life, but it isn't always easy.

We want to hear about all of your experiences, from your first pregnancy test right up to your first pregnancy symptoms. And feel free to share your conception secrets with other hopeful couples!
My husband and I decided in February 2009 that wanted to start a family, so I stopped taking my birth control patch. I had 3 normal periods. In May we went to Jamaica to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. Right when I got home (a Sunday) I took a pregnancy test...and it was negative. I was so disappointed. So on the next Thursday I took the EPT that tests 5 days before your missed period, and sure enough it came out positive. I took one more test the next day, just to make sure...and it was also positive.
We are so excited! Baby dust to all!
PCOS & PregnantI am 33 years old and have been told I could not have children after being diagnosed with PCOS since I was 16 & taking fertility drugs early on in my marriage. I would go months without a period. Then about 8 months ago they started regular and stayed that way until this month....No period. I expected it was the PCOS and just went back to the irregularity, but I was tired alot. Then the nausea & not being able to eat came.
So I took a test it didn't even take the 3 minutes to come up and stay that way 2 lines!!! I'm Pregnant approx 4-6 weeks. I Pray God will help me carry this baby to full term. I always wanted but never thought I would ever concieve a child! God does still work miracles!!
37 years old, 8 weeks along, and LOSING ITWe've been trying for a year. i had begun to think i couldn't get pregnant. then, Surprise!! i'm so exicted. i've told everyone, but i too feel a little guilt. trying so hard not to worry that something is going to go wrong. i am so stressed out and so fearful. i trust in God to take care of the baby, but i don't trust all of the rest of the world. there's toxoplasmosis (we have 4 cats--but i don't change the litterbox), there's the occasional abdominal cramping, there's the fact that i'm 37 years old, and this is only week 8, so there's still plenty of time for a miscarriage. i kind of wish i hadn't said anything to anyone until this 12 weeks is over, just in case, you know. but i'm trying so hard to be positive and believe that everything is going to be okay. but i'm terrified, really. just plain terrified.
Sad and PregnantHi everyone, my name is Lorena and I am pregnant with my second child. I am 8 weeks. Yesterday my dog got ran over and I was freaking out because I saw everything. He was our first dog and we loved him so much. So my question was, what can happen when you are pregnant if you get freaked out like that and cry your eyes out? My mom was so worried and she thought that something might happen to me or the baby. My stomach did hurt a little but not much. It was just so bad because I saw everything. I cant stop crying. What can I do?
I am 19 years old. I have just started my tenth week of pregnancy. The doctors say it's twins. My husband has been deployed to Iraq for eight LONG weeks now. It is so hard carrying these babies. We keep in contact as much as possible. The doctor says the babies are healthy and everything is fine. I am a first time mother so I am scared to death and with my husband being deployed it makes it even worse. We had been planning to have a child for a while now but I just wish he wasnt gone. When I told him I was pregnant on one of our midnight phone calls he started crying. He is so excited and I know he will make an amazing father! It is just going to be so hard with him being In Iraq and me being here alone. I just want my soldier home! I want him to be there to see firsthand what its like. I want him to hear the heartbeats, feel them kick, watch them grow, I even want him to watch me get fat! lol. I just want him safe at home with me and our growing babies!
