Trying to get pregnant is an exciting time in a woman's life, but it isn't always easy. From counting menstrual cycles to buying countless pregnancy tests, getting pregnant is often an experience in and of itself. 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 had been trying for almost two years. I had a miscarriage in 3/06 (I was 6.5 weeks). But, we kept trying and trying, getting more and more frustrated with it, with each other, with the situation, with our pregnant friends. It was this last fact that really bugged me...it seemed like everyone around us was pregnant...and none of them were married, were in serious relationships, had "good enough" jobs, etc. Whatever it was, they just didn't deserve it like we did. Or so we thought. We began to realize that after two years we were both loosing sight of why we wanted a baby in the first place.
On Nov 20, 2006 we had a serious heart-to-heart conversation. We whole-heartedly decided to stop trying for about 6 months and then see how we felt. And we were serious about waiting. We made a list of things we wanted to do to the house, money we wanted to save, and vacations we would go on.
Well, I kid you not, probably about four days after that heart-to-heart conversation, we conceived! Now I'm just about 6 weeks and I'm cautiously optimistic that everything's fine. And I can honestly say I want this baby for all the right reasons! It's funny, for the past two years our friends and family kept saying, "Stop trying and it'll happen". Well, I hope I'll have to make a few "you were right" phone calls soon!
Good Luck, everyone!
I am in shock!I have a two year old and a 4 month old and now I am sure that I am expecting again. I am stressing so bad...I am still recovering from my c-section and know I am with a child again. I am so fatigued! I have so much on my plate with the kids, the house, work and the night feedings.
I thought I would detox my body from all the medicine and wait to get on BC. Now I am putting myself and my body through this because I was ignorant. Please Lord give the strength to manage it ALL! I want to be a good mom to all of them. Give me the energy.
Thanks for listening!
send me for prayers
Excited and ScaredOK, this probably sounds familiar but it is news to me. This is my first pregnancy and I will be 9 1/2 weeks tomorrow. I had been spotting pretty constant up until about my 8th week and it has slightly come back.
Now I hear this is normal but it still makes me paranoid. I did have an ultrasound done at 7 1/2 weeks as I had just found out I was pregnant and didn't know how far along I was as I did have a period in the months previous.
Well the Dr. said everything looked great, the heartbeat was at 156 and she said I had a great shape going, which I still have no clue what that means but I'll take it.
My Dr. also told me that it was a good thing that I am sick and that my breasts are tender, but then I do worry. I am sure I am just being paranoid but my husband and I really want this baby.
I am 26 and we just started trying and conceived super quick, which was why I was 7 1/2 weeks when we found out, as I didn't believe the signs.
I do feel silly for worrying but we have our hopes up and don't want them crushed. We have had many friends and family miscarry so I worry I will. If those who pray, could pray for me and a healthy child that would mean the world ... Thank you
Finally preggoWell I am 21 yrs and I have been trying to conceive with my fiancť for almost two years. I think we finally did it. I did it naturally with herbs. I am not for sure yet but I am officially late as of yesterday (Christmas).
I have been taking geritol, evening primrose oil and green tea and progesterone cream for the last few days of my cycle to help conceive. I have never been late before; always on time, but I decided to wait till I am a week late to make sure because I will be so upset if I get a false negative. Wish me luck....and baby dust to all :)
3rd Baby and Loving It!I was totally shocked when I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd child. I was already ready for a 3rd baby in the house, but not so soon. The children are not happy, possibly because they are so spoiled. My kids are really close together. Tommy is 2 - he'll be 3 in July - and Nazariah is 1 - well she will be 1 on the 25th of Dec. I always wanted 3 kids but this is just excitement within itself.
It may seem hard at first but once you get used to having them around all the time and laughing and giggling with them you know that itís worth all the pain that you go through. My son isnít too excited. I discussed the new baby with him and he said that he didnít want a new baby in the house but he also said that about Nazariah and know he loves her to death.
Now mothers, even though it seems hard at times just look in there eyes, and you will know why its all worth it.
