TTC #2

So, we have been practicing...not avidly for a few months. When I got off the Pill my cycle was so out of wack and I was not regular whatsoever. Now I say the past 6 months my period is textbook. It should be easy to conceive right? WRONG! Everytime I am at my peak...something comes up. Either my dh is out of town working, one of us is sick or well you get the point. So now finally this past week is my peak week. We have been like bunnies every other day! I have to say I am enjoying the persistance of trying. Now the hard part is the wait. I think my mind is messing with me too. I think I am feeling early symptoms...bloating, tired, tenderness, etc. but I am trying my best to ignore them...however, I am really uncomfortable. Anyway I wish all of you the best in TTC'ing and be sure to enjoy the practice!


Trying and trying for baby luck yet

My husband and I have been married for 3 1/2 months now. I have a gorgeous daughter from a previous relationship. I was only 17 years old when I conceived her, and was not planning it( on bc!). I thought I was graduating high school to go to college and ended up delivering a child instead. But, instead of discouraging me from my dreams of going to college...she has incouraged me.

I am now a medical assistant and in college on line for my business degree, BA. Now that everything is coming full circle, we also own our house ( a four bedroom townhouse,) we are ready to conceive a baby. His first, my second. Im now 23 years old and my daughter is 2 months shy of being 5. So I have the strong urges for a little bundle of joy.

I took myself off of Ovcon 35 birth control pills two months ago. From time to time I have slight cramping and sorry to be graphic, but I also have a mucous like discharge now and again. I keep feeling like my period will come but nothing. In the first 3 -4 weeks after the birth control my breast were swollen and I was sick to my stomach. I took about 7 pregnancy tests, costing a fotune, to only get negative results. My doctor told me it might be my hormones from stopping the pill, like a hormone surge. But I knew what I was feeling and I felt pregnant! SO I had two blood tests about 2 weeks apart and still negative with no period. Now 1 month later still no period.

I heard it takes 3-6 months for some women to get regular. But I dont want to hear that esp. when I am ttc! So I plan to give it another month like a nurse I spoke to told me. She also said it is possible to ovulate soon and then have my first perioD or get no period at all still because I could still conceive soon while ovulating. So she said every 2 weeks take a pregnancy test. So to cut back costs I got online and ordered ovulation tests and pregnancy tests that for about 10 a piece cost me @ 30.00$. What a major save on the wallet!!!

I will just relax the next month and see what happens. if still nothing Im off to the GYN for blood work. It is crazy how I conceived with my daughter while taking birthcontrol and am having such a hard time while Im off birth control. Maybe I am trying to hard????

Good luck to you all I'll keep u posted when it happens.

Hoping - God's prayer

I have 2 boys a 3 1/2 and 6 1/2, I decided to choose to have my tube ties back then three and a half years ago, and I regret it. My hopes, my #1 comfort is FAITH. I know God will allow me to have a baby, if it is in his best interets in my life. Was my human decision, now I only pray and hope he answers it, if he's willing.

Anyone with a "hope" story like this please talk to me. I also know tubes can regrow and join back together, I know about tubal tranverse surgery, but I'm not quite trill with it. Just want to hear from someone.


In God's Hands

Keeping faith and hope can be so difficult during these times of TTC. I am 32 years old and have been ttc for the last 8 months. My husband is 43, he had a vaso-vastomy, last fall and recent test have given all positive results no anti-bodies and a healthy count. We had a false-positive in March, though I was excited, found out on my birthday too-- it turned out to be chemical pregancy.

Though I am only a few days late now I am praying and hoping for a positive result, my breasts are sore and I have such fatigue. I so want to take a test, but just need to be patient. I hear the anxiousness in some the stories I have read and I know how tiresome the baby chase can be. I am a Christian and have struggled in this area of hope and faith for years.

Just lately, I have found some sense of peace and was hoping to share with you all. Hang in there, God is at work and if it not now, there is a perfect time. He will answer your prayer's.

Thanks for letting me read your personal notes.
