The first trimester of pregnancy is a time filled with excitement and celebration. But it can also be a period of difficult changes, both physical and emotional. From morning sickness to mood swings, the first trimester is unlike any other, and we at Pregnancy Stories want to hear about it! Keep us informed about your first pregnancy experiences, especially those pregnancy symptoms, fetal development, and, of course, your baby's first ultrasound! We can't wait to hear from you!
Did I get pregnant or am I late?
I was supposed to start my period around February 14 but I didnít and on February 18 I had sexual intercourse! Well now it is March 9 and I still have not started my period yet! But my periods are always different; sometimes I miss a month or 2 and sometimes they are on track!
I haven't taken a pregnancy test yet because I am on house arrest so I canít go out and get one and my Boyfriend keeps on forgetting to get me one! Itís not his child by the way!
Relax!Relax! Relax!, Relax!, is all I seem to hear and after 2 years of trying to have a baby with no success, I am very frustrated.
I have been trying, what seems like, forever, and all anyone can tell me to do is ďrelax, it will happenĒ. I am 34, soon approaching 35, my partner 39 and weíve used every method known to man, or should I say woman.
To determine my ovulation time, I first decided to attempt the temperature method for several months, along the way, changing from non-battery operated thermometer, to battery operated, no success. I then went onto using "Maybe Baby", one of the latest ovulation testing methods for a further 4 months and still nothing.
As 1 year had past, I booked into an obstetrician who suggested I try Clomid, which is a medication designed to increase your ovulation chances, but first I had to endure a painful procedure, where dye was pumped into my uterus and around the ovaries, to ensure there was no blockage.
I commenced Clomid (which can only be taken for a 6 month duration in total) and after two months of it, decided I should give herbal medicine a go. I sought a fertility specialist, specialising in Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture and continued with that for 3 months and in between went on a tropical holiday to wind down, another recommendation, by others, to take my mind of the baby making process.
After returning from the holiday, my partner and I decided not to bother with all the methods and let nature take its course. Our patience lasted 3 months and now on our 2-year anniversary of trying for a baby, Iím back to trying Clomid again.
I know Iím not the only person going through this sort of experience, but itís still tough to play the waiting game and remain positive, when others around you are becoming pregnant and every person you look at is carrying that little miracle. Whilst IVF will be our next and last resort, we live in hope month to month.
Trying, but no luck!My story.... I'm 26 and my husband and I have been married for a year and a half. (We're high school sweethearts.) Before we got married, although we had decided that we were ready for kids, in every sense of the word- emotionally, financially, etc, we decided to wait. You see, my sister was getting married in Italy 9 months after my wedding and the last thing I had wanted was to be 9 months pregnant and flying across the Atlantic Ocean. So, we waited.
We've been trying for almost 10 months now and still nothing. When I was younger, I had ovarian cysts, but my doctor had assured me that this wouldn't cause any problems. Last year when I went for my annual, my new OB had informed me that my uterus was folded in half on top of itself. She said this was nothing to worry about and it is in fact quite common. I'm getting to the point where I think this may be causing a problem.
I've had a very regular cycle since I took myself off of the patch (years ago- and only used for regulation.) My period comes every 30 days without fail; along with the once a month acne and cramps like you wouldn't believe. My periods also are very heavy on days 1-4 and usually last 7-8.
Here's the thing, I was due to get my period on 3/8, but yesterday (3/3- five days early) I had a light pinkish brown discharge with slight cramping. I thought, maybe my body is changing a bit and decided that it wants to be on a different schedule. Thinking it was just an early period, I put in a tampon. When I pulled it out a few hours later, there was blood on it, but not nearly as much as there usually is on day one. (Usually on day one, I have to change every 45 minutes to 1 hour.) Now today, 3/4 there is no "real flow." I also have not gotten my monthly zit. There is still slight cramping, a little breast tenderness, but nothing else.
I'm going to wait a few days before I take a test, to see if my body is in fact changing and just wants to be on a different schedule. I'm just hoping that this is implantation bleeding. Nothing would make us happier (or my in-laws) than to have a baby.
trying to get pregnantHi, I'm 22 yrs old, soon to be 23. My bf and I have been trying to get pregnant since October but no luck so far. I was on the pill and stopped taking them in the middle of October. I had my menstruation on November and December was the last time I had them.
I am now 2 months late but not pregnant. I took several home pregnancy tests but they were all negative. I even went to the doctor, passed 2 tests and one blood test but they all came back negative.
I don't know what to think or do anymore. I have another doctor appt on March 13 and hopefully she'll be able to tell me whets going on.
Here I am Again...So I posted almost a year ago, after my tubal ligation reversal. It's been 14 cycles since I had the surgery and I'm now on progesterone and clomid (evil little pill!!!). I am 10 DPO and too scared to test right now.
I don't even know if I'm late because the progesterone makes my cycles longer. Shoot, I don't even know where in my cycle I usually am! The clomid dries up my CM, makes my temps all funky and gives me false positives on my OPK's.
This month, though, I happened to hit the OPK's at the right time so I know I'm 10 DPO. *sigh*
Still waiting and hoping.
