How it worked

It took us a few months of trying with my first to get pregnant. What finally worked for us was just staying in bed a little longer after we had "tried." I layed there with a pillow under my hips for at least an hour each day (5 days surrounding ovulation), and that's when I finally got pregnant.
We had a second the same way.
We got pregnant a third time using the same method, but lost that baby. Tried again, lost that baby.
We are going to try again sometime, but I don't really know when.
Good luck to you all!


need help

i am 22 years old and just got married in sept. 07. My husband is 36 and we have spent 9 months trying to get pregnant, we heard about clear blue easy fertility monitor and decided to give it a try. We used it for a month and i am pretty sure that I conceived sometime around the 28th of may. AF is due to arrive tommorrow June 10th, but I have had sore heavy feeling breast and major stomach cramping since about four days past ovulation. I took a pregnancy test strip on Thursday June 5th and it came out faintly positive, u can c the result line really well though, so Im not quite sure what to expect. i am hopihng that I am going to have a baby, we have been trying so hard for soooooo long. My basal temp seems to be really elevated too.
If anyone has any answers i would be very happy. I am a christian women so no profanity please!!!!!


So Close

Last year around the end of July, I was on Loestrin. I never got my period for that month, and that raised the eyebrows of many people. I went to the doctor they took me off my medicine and told me if I didn't get my period don't start the next month of pills. So after that, still no period. I took 4 HPT, and the pregnancy tests in the Dr. Office. Still negative... They finally did a blood test. And nothing. So they put me on Pervera, and behold Aunt Flo was here....

I will admit it was sad. I was sort of tickled to think of a life growing inside of me that would be all mine.

I was 15 then, I got put on Ortho Trycyclin and I am waiting until I am a few years older so I can bring my baby into a happier place. :)

Babydust to all! You are in my prayers!


Trying to keep my spirits up

I feel truely blessed I have three wonderful girls and after ALOT of convincing my husband agreed we should try 1 more, I started off with the idea that it would take just a few months but every month that goes by and it doesn't happen I think maybe I'm pushing my luck.
It's not that I'm unhappy with the family I have but just always felt like I should be taking care of one more. I'ts been four months of trying and no luck, should I do something diffrent?


This is for urban goddess

You need to go to the doctor. The symptoms you have could possibly be a ectopic pregnancy.

The early signs are:

Pain in the lower abdomen, and inflammation (Pain may be confused with a strong stomach pain, it may also feel as a strong cramp)
Pain while urinating
Pain and discomfort, usually mild. A corpus luteum on the ovary in a normal pregnancy may give very similar symptoms.
Vaginal bleeding, usually mild. An ectopic pregnancy is usually a failing pregnancy and falling levels of progesterone from the corpus luteum on the ovary cause withdrawal bleeding. This can be indistinguishable from an early miscarriage or the 'implantation bleed' of a normal early pregnancy.
Pain while having a bowel movement
Patients with a late ectopic pregnancy typically experience pain and bleeding. This bleeding will be both vaginal and internal and has two discrete pathophysiologic mechanisms.
