...wow

I can't believe it. I'm pregnant. We got pregnant in our second month TTC. We were prepared to have to wait a year or more. Okay, so I wasn't digging the idea, but right when I got used to the idea the test came back positive. Twice. Then the nausea came, and the tiredness. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. We haven't told very many people, just a few family members and friends, they are itching to share, but we want to wait till the first doctor's visit so we can tell them how far along we are or when we're due exactly, because now I'm just kind of guessing.

I never thought I'd want to have my period

I am 5 days late and not pregnant 3 tests over. I took one at home and then I had my appointment for my yearly pap and she did a urinalysis and a blood pregnancy test. No baby. I never thought I'd want to have my period while I was trying for a baby, but now I want to have my period so I'll get around to ovulating again. I've ordered some Pre-Seed lubricant after reading some reviews. Anything to help the process along. My gyno told me just to watch for the change in my CM and if I wanted to, get an ovulation predictor kit.

It begins...

So we just started trying. And I'm not sure how I'm going to handle the whole waiting thing. I'm a very decisive person and my husband and I decided we want to have a baby. I want to get pregnant now. We even went and bought and ovulation kit (this is only my first month off of BC). I started testing on the day it told me to for the LH, but nothing...day after day... The time I was supposed to ovulate and no sign of the LH. I've always had a 28 day cycle and I don't understand why I haven't ovulated. I don't want to go through months of this. I'm afraid I will get so disheartened.
