A Surprise

I am 25 years old. I thought I was still too young to have kids and was not ready to be a mom yet, so I would take care of myself by my husband using protection. So I didn't think I was pregnant because I would get my period and I would just feel tired but I always thought it was a lot of stress at work. Then 6 months pass until one day I fainted and went to go check myself and the doctor said I was 6 months pregnant and I didn't realize it because I have big hips. I was shocked, happy and scared but now I see my 3 month old daughter and I tell myself "God sent her to me becuase I deserved her" and I love my daughter so much that I don't regret anything about my baby.



I had a tubal done in 88. Had a reversal done in Nov 05. Had to wait 6 weeks then got pregnant in March. Lost it in April, of all things on Easter. But it is really depresing month after month. Especially when my daughter and daughter-in-law are both pregnant. Thanks for letting me vent.


Anxious Waiting

My husband and I have been trying about every other month to get pregnant for a while. Now it has been three months in a row. We have a daughter together. I am not suppose to start for two weeks, and my breasts have been hurting. Usually they dont start hurting until one week before. So I hope that I am pregnant. Do you think there is a good chance? Thanks I have faith/


After you've given up

My husband and I attempted to have a baby for 7 years. He had a "low" sperm count (approx 4-8million) but "enough to do the job" per his doctor. I had numerous tests and my condition was proclaimed "unexplained infertility". So we tried some fertility treatments which included several attempts at "IUI". I had one doctor, who was just filling in, asked if I had been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome because approximately every other month I had a cyst on my ovaries and couldn't do the inception. I tried the treatments for almost 2 years with no results. I had just turned 40, my husband was gearing up to being deployed for approximately 6 months, and the constant disappointment was causing some emotional distress (depression) on my part, so we mutually decided to stop trying to conceive.
Since I couldn't get pregnant I decided to get skinny (I had gained approx 30 lbs in the 2 years I was trying the fertility treatments). Some shipmates of my husband had been successful on their diets and recommended it to my husband. So my husband picked up a book for the South Beach Diet. While reading the book I came across a story about a 30 year old woman who was having trouble conceiving and had been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome and had not been able to conceive for over 7 years dispite fertility treatments. She stopped the treatments and went on a diet to lose weight, in just a few months she was pregnant. I was kinda amused about this and even pointed it out to my husband in a joking manner.
So, I went on the diet, lost 15 lbs in 4 weeks, not bad I thought. I missed my period which concerned me because I am as regular as clock work, thought maybe I had messed my system up with this diet or that I was slipping into early menopause. After about 6 days I called my fertility doctor and they told me to take a home pregnancy test. Guess what, I was pregnant. Not saying the diet did it but . . . My husband said, "How many thousands of dollars did you spend on fertility and I did it with a $10 book". Actually, I am a Christian and feel like the Lord allowed me to conceive, He just wanted me to know that it was Him doing it and not the doctors. But I'm sure the diet didn't hurt anything.
