These stories on here just helped me out a lot today. My husband and I have been ttc #2 for a year. We have an amazing 16 month old boy that was born 2 months early and only 2 1/2 pounds. It took us 3 years to concieve. My periods have always been very irregular and I am lucky to have one period a year if that. I am 26 closing in on 27 and my husband is 23. My husband just left today for 2 weeks for a business trip. I have been feeling a lot of pregnancy symptoms but I am afraid that I just want it so bad that I am making the symptoms up or something. I want my children to be close, if we are blessed with another one. I was diagnosed with a blood disorder tha tcaused my son to be even smaller than normal for 32 weeks gestation. It also causes 2nd trimester stillbirths and miscarriages and because I already had complications with my first, the likelyhood of another problem if it even lives is very high. When I got married I wanted a HUGE family but it looks like I will have to change that number. Good luck to every one and baby dust to all.
...to those who waitWell..my husband finally gave me the thumbs up on TTC. I was so excited because I had been preparing for this mentally and physically. I had changed my diet, my excersize routine, managing stress, and charting my BBT for 1 whole year! I thought it would be a breeze. Especially since it seems to be in the H2O. 3 of my friends and 1 sister had surprise pregnancies. Well, my husband and I plan EVERYTHING. We figured our overplanning would surely be a benefit. However we are now in month 2 of trying and I just got my period again. It is quite frustrating. But we know that God will bless us when we are ready :) Here's to 'the best comes to those who wait'
Pregnant with 2nd baby and only 16I have a baby boy thats 19 months old. I found out i was pregnant after he turned 1 year old. Well my pregnancy was kinda planned but then again it wasn't. After Hurricane Katrina our house was a disaster so we had to move and my mom wanted to move to Waco, Texas and i didn't want to leave my boyfriend cause we are so in love...but anyways we thought that if we got pregnant then either he would have to go to Texas with me or I can stay in Gulfport with him...so we tried but i was kinda confused about it cause i had plans for school and plus I had already had a lil boy that was bad as ever and i just didn't know what i would do with another baby. I was on the Ortho Evra birth control patch at the time but just so happens on the day it was time to change my patch my mom had already packed the whole house on the u-haul...includin my patches so i couldn't change it...and we had already did it...so shortly after my period was supposed to come on and it didn't but i didn't thinik anything of it...Guess what!!! My crazy self forgot when it was suppose to come on...so after a while i started feelin little flutters in my stomach and i told my boyfriend who thought it was a big joke...anyways we decided to take a test and it was positve. I was sick to my stomach cause i just knew my mama was bout to go off on me... so after a week i decided it was time to tell her so i put the positive test in her purse and went to school...well she was mad and we had a long talk but i had already made my decision to keep my baby...now i'm 34 weeks and 3days pregnant and it's so miserable. It's the summer time and my lil boy weighs over 30 lbs so i have to carry him... I mean i get a lot of help from my boyfriend who is baby's father and future husband but i'm just anxious to have my baby...He's more anxious than me though... I think my baby is goin to be a little jealous but he'll get over it...but my due date is September 11, 2006 but im scheduled for a c-section on September 1, 2006 since i had a c- section with my first baby. I've had a previous ultrasound and he weighs 5lbs already...he's so big!!! I think he's comin in mid August...I caint wait!!! But thanks for readin my story... Have a blessed day!
My 5th pregnancyI am a happily married woman of almost 7 years. I have two daughters 2 and 1 years old. I also had two previous miscarriages. I am now trying for my 5th pregnancy and 3rd child. I tried for one year to get pregnant with my first and lost that one, then a month later had another miscarriage. Within one week I got pregnant with my first daughter. Then when she was 7 months old I got pregnant with my second daugter. Now we want our third and are hoping for a boy.
CrampingI had a very light period on the 19th of June for 4 days. I came home on the 1st of July and my husband and I had sex everyday until the 3rd. I had to leave and return back to my trip in Texas on the 4th of July. I started spotting on the 7th for about 4 or 5 days. Nothing heavy, just a pantiliner spotting. I have not had a period, yet, no sign of blood at all, and today I started cramping, all day. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. Did I take it took soon, should I wait and take another one later.
