Trying to get Pregnant at 36 years old


My husband and I have been trying to conceive our second child for 6 months now. My periods are regular, and I am ovulating according to the kits I'm using and my own natural indicator of pain in my side during ovulation. I don't have any health problems that I'm aware of.

It took us 8 months to get pregnant with my daughter who is now 3 yrs old. I'm trying to relax and not worry, but it's easier said than done. I'm older this time around and scared that it won't happen. I've made an appointment to see my doctor in April in case I'm not pregnant after this month's cycle.


could be pregnant

i am 22 years old and have been in a steady relationship with my live-in boyfriend for 4 years now.

a few days ago my best friend called to tell me that she was pregnant, although her relationship situation wasnt as good as mine. her saying that made me nervous, because for as long as ive known her, we've been on the same cycle. i figure if she can be pregnant, so can i. and lately ive been feeling the early signs of pregnancy like extreme fatigue, lower back pain, and increased appetite. those 3 things dont happen that often.

and lately ive have no appetite (which is good cause i was dieting). so, my friend has convinced me to take a test, bc im close to the day im supposed to start. im nervous, but willing to welcome a new life.

wont it be neat, though, for two best friends to have unplanned pregnancies together!


17 and pregnant

My boyfriend and I have known each other for about 5 years, and have been together for 2 1/2 years. We had been having sex without protection, but the doctor had told us he couldn't have kids, so we didn't think anything of it. After 1 1/2 having unprotected sex (although he pulled out the majority of the time) I had never gotten pregnant.

Over the past 2 weeks I have been feeling really sick. I get nauseous, I get tired easy, have an increased appetite, need to go to the bathroom more than usual, have stomach cramps constantly, and missed my period. I figured something had to be wrong with me. I told my boyfriend that I thought I was pregnant, and like the good guy he is he took me to get a test.

The first test I took came out positive and I figured maybe it was some kind of flaw. I then took 2 more tests all different brands and they came out positive as well. Turns out, I'm pregnant with his kid.

Luckily I got ahead in high school and finished early and I have a wonderful guy who is working 2 jobs to take care of me and our soon to be child, and who really cares about me. Not everyone is that lucky :( I have told my parents already and they took it very well. They are willing to help me as much as I need.


2 years

I just wanted to say that after trying for over 2 years and after my husband and I had given up, we found two weeks ago that we were pregnant. We tried all techniques, thermometers, ovulation kits, clomid, you name it.

And finally last December we stop all of them altogether, the only thing that we never tried before actually worked, "relaxing" not thinking about it. We are expecting a baby in late september and we are very exited.

To all of you trying to concieve keep trying and relax...


Edmondson's Journey

Well its February 11, 2008... Just may have had the first signs of spotting, meaning I just might actually be preganant. Alot of mixed emotions as you can probably imagine.

I will share with you some of my thoughts- (selfish thoughts ) It's about to be summer time and I am not going to be able to hang with everyone like i normally do. I am going to have to by new clothes because these are not going to fit for long, I am going to have to give up alot of things that I may want in order to provide for my new life style...

(unselfish thoughts) I am going to someone's mommy, I am going to get hugs and kisses all the time and little pictures drawn just for me to hang up all over the place. I am going to have someone who will hopefully take care of me when I am too old to take care of my self... I am going to be a role model for my child.

Well for now i am going to tell myself that I am not 100% sure that this is a preganacy we are dealing with... If it is i will be sure to come back and keep you in touch with my day to day experiences and maybe some how you can relate to some of my stories.
