My husband and I decided to start after the first of the year. I really never kept track of my periods so, we both said if we got pregnant, cool. But then if we didn't we would try again. Every month I would be anxious to take that pregnancy test. And every time it would be negative. Finally, I decided I'm not going to worry about it. Well in July, I was 1 day late. I had this gut feeling that I was pregnant. Of course, my husband said wait a few more days. Well a couple more days went by and I just couldn't take it anymore. On the fourth day I took the test and it was positive. We were so excited.

At 8 1/2 weeks we lost our baby. I was upset but I knew it must have happened for a reason. I had a d&c to remove remaining tissue.
We are trying to conceive again and are hoping for a healthy-normal pregnancy.
And for all those who are trying for their first. Just try to be patient, it will happen sooner or later. It's in God's hands.


My fiance kept saying for a month or so that he knew I was pregnant. I didn't believe him and kept saying NO WAY!! Well out of the blue...3 days before my expected period something came over me and I decided to go to the store and get a test. I took 4 at home tests and they all said positive and then went to the doctor the very next morning and he confirmed for a 5th time that I was indeed pregnant. We were totally surprised but we couldn't be happier about it. We are so excited and can't wait to be parents!


Think I might be

My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 2 years.I've never dreamed of being pregnant and when I found out I was, I was very excited. Well I had a miscarriage when I was about 3 months along. I'm suppossed to start my period tomorrow. Usually I can feel myself ovulate but this month I didn't. My breasts are sore and I've had really bad discharge, and my stomach growls alot and it never does that. Sometimes I feel dizzy. If I don't start my period tomorrow I'm going to take a test. So hopefully I am.
I like reading all the stories they're very comforting to know that I'm not the only one who goes thru a miscarriage.

Just Starting TTC

I love reading everyones stories. It just makes me realize I am not in the boat alone. There are many others out there just like me. My husband and I have only been TTC for the last 2 months. I am 24 and the Husband is 27. I have always wanted to be a young Mom and my Husband has always wanted to be a younger Father. So we recently decided we would try. The first month of trying and I thought for sure I must be pregnant. I convinced myself I had all the signs (tender breasts, fatigue, mood swings..etc...) but I guess those symptons were pure hope! This time around I am really going to try not to get my hopes to high. As I know have educated myself more that it might not happen right away as I hoped so much for. My Fertile days were just last week and boy did we try! So I am just hoping "the seed was planted and will grow"! I thought I was a bit Nutty for convincing myself so much last month that I was pregnant. I felt so foolish. But from reading all the stories its good to not be alone!
