Hey everyone :)

My hubby and I went off the pill a week ago today! We are trying to fall pregnant, I used to have irregular periods so dont know how they will be now that Im off the pill. Im PRAYING I dont even start :) I had a withdrawal period 2 days after going off the pill, which i read is normal.

I really hope I dont take MONTHS to fall preggies, Im DYING to!! I finish studying in 3 months time, and then am FREE to be a mom :) Just waiting now for ANY signs of being pregnant; and watching for my period NOT to start :)

Wish me luck!! I have a preg test in my cupboard just waiting to be used :)

Will update soon when I find out the good news..

-hopeful & waiting


We'll See

Well I have one son who is one! He is the greatest joy in my life! I always wanted more children but once I had Reese I almost didnt want anymore because the time demands are hard on me! But now I might be pregnant again! I am so excited!

My period is 2 weeks late and I have taken 2 home pregnancy tests and they both came back negative! I want to make a doctors appt. but i am afraid that I am pregnant but I think I'm more afraid that I'm not pregnant! I mean I havent had any of the same symptoms! The first time around I had morning sickness from day one until I was about 5 months. My nipples were so tender and I was always hungry!

And this time I am always hungry, I cry at the drop of a hat, and I am very moody! I just don't know what to do? But either way I would be relieved just to know the truth!!


Never say never....

I am 25 and my fiance is 49. Last year I was told I may have PCOS after discovering my period had just stopped showing up.

We had not really been trying or preventing to have kids but rather allowing things to happen naturally. While trying to diagnose me for sure the doc put me on the pill for four months and the pills ran out late last year. I quit my job at the end of April this year to pursue one that would offer me insurance so I could resume treatment.
The pill seemed to regulate me for a few months but as of April it seemed the same old stuff was happening again. I thought for sure it was the PCOS, but apparently I was wrong. It took four months to figure out that I may in fact be pregnant.
I never got morning sickness really but remembered having something similar to the flu at the beginning. I knew I was really tired all the time and I peed all the time! I chalked that up to the summer heat and the increased amount of fluid I had been drinking.
It wasn't until the end of June that I got up the nerve to take a test and when it was positive started shaking. I took another and another just to be sure. When I called in my fiancee from outside he thought I sounded like I'd seen a big bug and he was prepared to kill it. We must have been in shock for a couple weeks. Happy shock but still shock.
We did not think that with my PCOS and him being older that it was likely that we would have a baby. I have my first dr. appointment next week (it took three weeks to get in) and by now can expect to find out the sex and such.
Nothing is impossible....maybe unlikely but not impossible.


tyring 4 three years

im 22 years old and have been tyring to get pregnant for three years. two years ago i was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries. i tried fertility drugs but no luck. last year i was in an car accident and had knee surgery and decided to stop trying until i was all healed up. on my birthday (june 29) i got my period, and in mid july i started spotting. it only lasted two days but i didnt think anything of it because my periods are irregular.

on the 4th of aug my breast started to hurt really bad and my nipples were really sensitive which is something i havent experienced before. it is now 10 days later and they are still very sore. i also am bloated and have abdominal pains. they are not cramps but feel like a sharp pain when i get up from a sitting position or lying down.

im hoping that im pregnant but am too scared to take a pregnancy test and end up dissapointed all over again. i scheduled an appointment with my doctor on the 21 of aug so im hoping for some good news.

good luck to all of you who are tyring to get pregnant and congrats to all those who are.


I just dont know!!!

I am 19 years old and got married in April 06 I have now been married for 4 months and have had a few to many pg scares.

Well my LMP was on june 12 06...I have not had one since...I have had many symptoms of pg...i have had one blood test about two weeks ago from today 8 9 06 it was negative...i have taken 2 at home pg test's both of which said they were defective and to throw any other test's away that came in that same box. Well it has been almost a month and still nothing. I continue to run to the bathroom to pee or clean up because i have so much discharge and i think i started my period. I just dont know what is going on.

I went to the doc today 8 9 06 for another pg blood test....i am scared but at the same time husband and i will be so happy if we are.

it just worries me so much because i dont know what is going on with my mom told me she is positive i am pg because i cry for no reason...have bad mood swings...i eat anything and everything...i feel like throwing up after i eat or before i go to bed...and my husband told me my nipples looked darker, i am tired all the time and i get headaches like i have never had before.

I just dont know...

i will keep yall posted on what is going on with me. i find out tomorrow if i am. Hope you all never loose faith in becoming is bound to happen.

hope someone can help.
