Am I pregnant???

My husband and I, have been trying to have a baby for a year now. My period is very regular.

On July 14, I was suppose get my period, but on that day I got a brownish spotting only and then on July 15 I had to change my pads 3-4 times with normal flow, red in color. Then it totally stopped on July 16 and till now as of July 20 my breast is still very, very sore and I have loss my appetite and I'm very tired but I can sleep well after midnight.

I took a PT last July 10--it was negative. I'm afraid to take another PT, I don't want to disappoint myself again.


My nose gives it away!

With my last two pregnancies, 10 DPO my nose is very blocked and feels stuffy when I sniff, I also get one or two nose bleeds around this time (this never happens to me) and then I KNOW!

Now I'm in the 2ww and feel very crampy, like af is about to start, but it's not due for 10 days, so I'm hoping that right around 10 DPO, I will be doing a lot of sniffing, to see if my nose is blocked! LOL.


This is Taking Forever

My husband and I have been together for 6 years 9 months. We got married in Oct. 2005 and decided to start trying in Dec. 2005. So I quit taking my birth control pills which I had been taking for 5 1/2 yrs. Of course like many other couples we thought that it was going to be a piece of cake. Well, boy were we wrong.

We have now been trying for 19 months. My periods were very irregular, I would go 2-3 months w/out having one. So, I am on my third cycle of clomid 50mg days 3-7, and my Dr. put me on Metformin 1,000mg a day so that I will start my period each month. (I have been taking this for about 5 months).

So far I have ovulated each month that I've been on Clomid, I know this because I use the OPK around the time of ovulation. We start having sex about 3-4 days before ovulation, the day of, and a couple of days after just to be sure. I am in the 2 week wait right now and I am supposed to start my period in 6 days.

We haven't gotten pregnant yet, so we are hoping and praying that it will happen soon. I will definitely let you know if I am pregnant.

Baby Dust to you all and hang in there!!


ttc 1mth after comming of bc, spotting for 5 weeks

I'm ttc with what would be my 1st, recently came off bc.

Everything was fine up until I missed a few in may due to moving house. I started spotting brown but very light, I was still taking bc while spotting, then I got fed up as I didn't know if this was a withdraw bleed or af.

So anyway thatís when I threw out my last 2 packets. When it came to my 7day break weirdly enough the spotting stopped. Ahhhh annoying or what.

That week no spotting then after it returned light but with pains....I started to believe that during the missed pill I could of been pg but never thought about it and then I was told taking 3-4 bc pills for the 1's missed is like taking the morning after pill. Oops, didn't know that sorry, and then it came back so all in all I spotted for 5weeks.

Donít know when af will come as my cycle is messed up but I believe Iím ovulating now so me and dh will be ttc as I've come off bc for good and would like to start a family of our own.

I pray for no af this month and another 9, maybe its happened already??? And also the fact that SOME couples have multiple births after bc would be great. FYI Iím 22 I have been working since I was 13. Worked in a nursery for 3yrs with 6mths - 5yrs and a youth club with 8-11yrs. Iíve worked in pathology lab clinical chemistry and currently work in renal & transplant.

Due to start uni to train to become a midwife in Sept 2007 yay I could be delivering your babies who knows.

I have always been maternal and cant wait to be a mom, what I like about these site's is the children are really wanted and are planned, accidents are ok I just donít like the term accident.

I want to have my babies and be planning and expecting

All the best to you ttc'ers
Good luck and keep me posted



So I've been reading these stories for like 3 weeks hoping that one day I would be able to post my story. Well letís see, I took my last pill on the June 11th, 2007 because I was expecting it to take awhile. I got my monthly friend two days later on the 13th.

Well 3 weeks later I started to feel really tired and I had sore breasts, I never ever get sore breasts. So I took a test on the 2nd, yes I know way too early of course it was negative. Then on the 8th of July I took another one right before my DH and I were going swimming. We covered it for the 3 minutes and finally decided to check. I saw one dark line and immediately walked away. My DH was like "uh honey I see a faint second line" no way I thought. When I went back it actually was positive!!

I have my first ultrasound in 3 weeks and I canít wait for March when I have my beautiful baby!

I canít believe I was only off the pill for 2 weeks before I conceived! I heard that increases your chances for twins... how exciting. Baby dust to all!
