Trying to Conceive

Baby?

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.

Too Tired

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.

How to start looking for symptoms

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?

Babies, babies, babies...

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.

Could I really be pregnant?

Could I really be pregnant after a tubal ligation surgery that i had done almost 6yrs ago? I've been having some strange symptoms. The one that struck me the most is how sore my breasts are and i still have 2 weeks til my cycle. I've been dizzy, tired, and all I want to eat is McDonalds fries and their vanilla ice cream cone. Plus I feel a fullness in my uterus, if that makes sense, and some cramping as well. Not to mention the headaches. I thought it was from caffeine and that maybe i was getting ready to start my cycle but then I realized it was still 2 weeks away.

Tip for Getting Pregnant

I'm currently in school for this ancient medicine and it can be really successful in treating infertility issues. Just from working in a student clinic, I have seen women get pregnant after trying acupuncture.

On top of that it is really helpful in treating all women's issues. PMS- doesn't have to be part of your life. Menopausal syndrome/ hot flashes- don't have to be so bad.
I personally have been treated for morning sickness & it worked wonders.
