Well, since I'm always reading other people's journals, I thought I would write one myself. DH and I have been married not for a little over a year and have 1 doggie. We love her so much and can't get enough of her. But a couple months ago we decided that is not enough for us and we should start trying for a baby. I have always, always dreamed of having a baby. I have also always been very scared that I would not be able to for some reason. We have only been trying 2 months now, and I am not a very patient person. I have friends we tried for as much as 2 years and I just hope that that never happens to me cause I would not be able to take it!!
Now that you are kind of up to speed. . . I am on CD 15 of my 2nd cycle of TTC. My cycles are pretty regular-28 days, so given that, I was supposed to O on CD 14 (yesterday), but I felt a sharp pain the right side of my abdomen on CD 10 and again on CD 11. I think that it was my egg being released (i may be wrong, i'm new at this), so we BD on CD 11, 13, and 15. I am wondering, is that pain in my ab in fact the egg being released? And if it is, how long does it take the egg to "travel" or whatever, and ready to be fertilized? After I feel the pain, when should we BD?
Since this TTC is new to me, I just trying to learn more about fertility and about my body. Now that I'm paying attention to my body, I feel every little pain, etc. and wonder what it means.
I am now on CD 15 and on the 2WW. Last month it just about killed me to wait! This month I am feeling more calm about it. But that is now and in a week I will probably be dying to test!
That is all for now. Good luck to all you TTCers!
Thanks for letting me read all of your journals--I've learned alot!
Well here I am on CD 23 and i'm feeling cramps. That usually means af is right around the corner. I'm going to test tomorrow because I think that I ovulated early and that would make tomorrow 14 dpo. I was optimistic until I felt the cramping today. Now I don't know what to think. I'm a very impatient person and I can't understand why it's not happening. I guess I shouldn't give up hope yet. Does anyone know if you feel cramps (like period cramps) does that mean you will most likely get af?
I am now on CD 28, 18 DPO (I think). AF is due today but not here yet. I can feel her coming though My cycles have been 28 days the last couple months and 31 before that so I guess af could come anytime between now and Fri. I tested last Fri. and got BFN. Most likely that is accurate but maybe it was too early?? I'm not sure if I should test again. I think i'll wait a couple more days cause like I said, I feel like af is right around the corner. I think if or when af comes I will start temping. I haven't so far cause it's only been a couple months and i'm pretty regular and I can usually tell when I am ovulating. But I think temping is a good idea cause I go to the ob/gyn in a couple months and then I can show her and see what she tells me.
Well.......I tested last night and got a BFP! It was a faint line, but it was definetly there! I still can't really believe it because I don't feel any different at all, no symptoms, nothing. But, af still hasn't come so that's a definite sign. I called the dr. and i'm going in for a blood test at 3. This is going to be the longest day at work! I just really need it to be confirmed. I don't feel like I really will know "for sure" until they tell me so at the Dr. So I hope everything goes well at the dr. and I am in fact pregnant!
Well, I went to the dr. last ngiht at it was confirmed, I am pregnant! I really can't believe it still. I still feel like any day af is going to show up and bring me back to reality. It hasn't started to sink in yet with my husband either. He's very worried that we aren't going to have enough money, etc. WE have decided to wait another month to tell people. It's going to be hard! I'm not good at keeping secrets and especially not one like this!
Thank you to all of you who wished me congratulations! Good luck to all of you TTCers! I hope you end up as lucky as me! Bye!
