Daily Update -
Trying to Conceive
I've decided to start writing in this blog to help me get through the TWW, and vent about any symptoms, BDing, or other news I have to share.
Welcome to my first entry
I just got my third period after going off birth control and I'm getting pretty antsy. I really want to have a baby and start a family.
Went to the doctors today, officially two weeks late. Got tested again and it was negative but was advised to come back in a week if AF didn't return and have a blood test done. Sadly, not even a couple hours after I got home, AF returned. I am so dissapointed. I never felt this bad before when I got my period.
Reading about CHD is something every pregnant woman should take a few moments to do. Knowing the signs and symptoms and researching detection methods saves lives.
My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant since March 2010. Since I was on the pill for 16 years I did not have any expectations of getting pregnant right away but my periods have always been very regular. My last period was due 8/31/10. I've never been more than a day or two late so by Friday 9/3 I went out and bought a pregnancy test.
So I wanted this to be the month that I conceived. I wanted it so bad! I ovulated around my birthday (last weekend) and it would have been the perfect birthday present! Too bad I was too tired to have sex. I think my boyfriend is getting frustrated too. I'm working 40 hours a week at my new full time job, plus I'm still working between 3 to 5 shifts a week at my waitressing job. I wish I could give up the server gig, but I need the money, especially if I'm trying to save up some extra cash for when there's a brand new baby around the house.
I'm only a few weeks from conception and my period is due the 7th of Sept. I know I have to wait for my missed period but I feel very different. Its only been a could weeks but I'm getting headaches everyday, I'm very exhausted when I even wake and can barely do anything through the day. And I am hungry all the time. I'm very impatient. I took 6 tests and they were all negative. Too early?
I just turned 30 and after being told at the age of 18 that it would be difficult for me to have children, I have 2 beautiful boys and a third baby on the way. We are able to conceive the first month we tried this time and I'm very excited. I'm also nervous because my second son was a high risk pregnancy.
I look around me and everywhere I turn there is a baby taunting me. My best friend just found out a few weeks ago that she is expecting baby number one, after over a year of trying to conceive. I couldn't be happier for her, and I'm praying for a happy and healthy baby for her. But at the same time I wish I were in the same boat with her. My husband and I have only been trying for a month now, a little less actually, but I feel like I have been waiting forever for my husband to just get on board with another baby.
