Hopes of first baby

Hi my name is Rhonda, my hubby's name is jason... I am 23 and he is 28, he is in the US army, we have been married for 2 and a half years, and we have been trying to concieve on and off during those 2 years, well i guess you could say 1 year, since he was in iraq for one of those...i just ovulated yesterday and today, cause i have just started to be able to feel when i do..so we hope it worked,if it didnt work this time, we plan to get the ovulation predictor sticks, one of our friends used them for both of her children and got preggy in no time..

Aunt Flow and some thoughts....

I have always had this thought in my head, that i wouldn't be able to get pregnant..I don't know why i have this feeling, nothing has ever confirmed this.. So if i do get Aunt flow this weekend, i will schedule an appt.. to see what is going on and why we haven't gotten preggy yet.. We have been trying since we got married, but not trying if that makes sense, 2 months ago is finally when we really started trying.. tried doing charting, but so dang confussing.bought some OPK, even though i have already O'd.. but decided to try these sticks any ways, and got a positive result, and still keep getting positive results, is this normal, or did the company rip me off. I keep analyzing my body at every pain, etc..I just wish that if aunt flow is going to rear her ugly head, that she would do it soon, so we can start trying again, i get so disappointed when we get that dreaded BFN, but can't keep from taking them before AF is due...
Well looks like Aunt flow will be rearing her ugly head full force tomm.. i started spotting today, so another month of trying, will make a doctors appt when aunt flow is gone.. to get a pap and see what is going on. it is a constant disappointment to see aunt flow month after month, when u are trying to get preggy. kinda disappointed that she is here, but just means i get to start trying again..maybee going to the doctor will be good, maybee i will finally get preggy, and i can stop feeling jealous when i find out a friend or someone is preggy and gets a BFP. That is all for now, will keep you updated Sad ..

Cramps, cramps, and more cramps....

AAhhh AF reared her head full force, and the cramps came along with her, always bad on the 3 and 4th day of my cycle... almost over though, i have decided to wait on making a docs appointment, for one more cycle, this time we are going to make ovulation a full week event, getting every fertile day, as well as i am gonna try temping, so hopefully this will all work, and i will be making the docs appt, to get a BFP, and if not i am finally prepared to make a doctors appt and see what is going on and if we will ever be able to get preggy, so wish me luck..

BD and Emotions

Managed to BD once early sunday morning,and will BD again tonight, took an opk today, and not surging yet, going for everyday this week though, no matter what , keeping fingers crossed, Today we found out a couple in our unit is preggy with her 4th child, and it might not even be here hubbies, it kills me that i have always been faithful, and that we have been together longer then them, and that they already have 2 together, the other 2 are from her previous marriage, also my upstairs neighbor is preggy with her 3 and she is a good mom, but when is it my turn, felt her baby kicking today and was so jealous, i want to feel that,well that is all for now,so emotional today, sending babydust to all...

Waiting game...

Today is cycle day 30, and i am on a 26 day cycle, and AF has not reared her ugly head, but getting a BFN, each time, i have tested 3 times, last night i had spotting which has went away, and i was really nauseas and threw up, boobs really sore, been really tired, this is the first time AF has been late. we are so not trying to get our hopes up, but at the same time we really feel we are pg this time, and i pray i am, for once i wanna feel what all other preggy people feel...and stop seeing BFN, so today i am gonna go to the docs and have him do a blood test, cause i read that it is possible that the spotting i seen last night was implantation bleeding, and also that u won't see a BFP until implantation, cause implantation needs to occur in order to have HCG... so i am hoping to update later with a BFP, crossing my fingers and praying, i want this so badly, and if we are not, we have decided to wait awhile before trying again, to much disappointment in seeing BFN each time...

Starting Over...

ok if you read my last post, way back in october.. I went to the doctors and he did a blood test, It came back not pregnant, so he called me in his office to talk, and said i still could be pregnant, but my levels were not high enough, or that something else was going on.. Considering it has been the first time i have ever been late.. so he set up all kinds of test, etc.. That he wanted me to come back and do later in the week.. Also he told me he wanted me to start working on loosing some weight, which he said would increase my chances..

October 25, one day after my test.. I wake up to the cops banging on my door, turns out my mom had passed away during the night, later that day i got my period, which was really hard, knowing my mom was never gonna see my preggy and have a grand child.. So i then decided to take some time of from trying to get pregnant..

January- I decide to take the doctors advice and start working on loosing some weight.. So in March my friend got me to join curves with her.. so i joined on March 7 and have lost 10 pounds and 6 inches.. woohoo me.. my next weigh in is May 7th..

So now here we are and it is April and we have decided to start TCC again. As i continue to work on loosing more weight.. I am on cycle day 11 right now, and should be getting ready to ovulate.. So we BD'd Saturday night and early this morning..

At the time i hoping to get pregnant, but it will not be a diasapointment (SP) to me if we don't get preggy this month, so i can continue on my weight loss journey.. Which i am hoping will help me in the end and not only that i will be healthier and feel better..

Update..

So we are still not pregnant, but that is fine with me, cause me and my friends took a few months off of Curves.. We start back tuesday, i also bought a gazelle from one of my friends today, so i can start doing a workout in the afternoon.. So we are really not trying to hard right now, but if it happens of course we will be overly exited.. But right now my paln of action is 2 loose 60lbs before halloween, or close 2.. Then we will start trying again, and if we see nothing within a few months, i will then go to the doctors to see what is going on.. Well that is all for now, will try to keep this more updated..
