On day six of cycle 1 of the second try. I honestly hold very little belief that we are going to get pregnant right off. We didn't last time and I doubt we will this time. I have a small nugget of hope that we will be able to but I still haven't been sleeping well at night thinking about things. I wish I had faith...I guess this is when most people turn to their religion or something. I just have to turn to science, which doesn't support me very well in all of this. The likelihood of it happening again is the same as before, and since it happened before, it could again.
Trying to Conceive
Three more days until the morning of August 14 which will be 31 days since my last m/c. Where is af? She should have shown up today but no dice. Not that I'm complaining! My breasts have been super sore the past week or so and today after breakfast I almost threw up. I've been a walking zombie no matter how much sleep I get. I know these things are really happening but what if there's some other cause? I'm trying hard not to get my hopes up. My dh is getting his hopes up too even though I've been strongly encouraging him not to. It is our first month trying after all.
Today was a little crushing. i was surfing around looking up facts about post depo TTC...well suffice it to say the nurse's casual "it may take take some time to get out of your system" wasnt very specific. they asked me before my first shot if i planned on getting pregnant that year, and i said no because i wasnt. so i continued for about 3 injections (9 months) and when we decided it was beebee making time i quit.
We are about to travel down the path of trying to conceive again. We were eight weeks along when I miscarried on June 22nd. Prior to that, it took us six months to conceive. I have had a lot of issues with difficult and irregular cycles since I was a teenager. I was on the Depo shot and had an IUD to help with issues, so I of course had a lot of fear that we wouldn't be able to get pregnant. I know in the grand scheme of things, six months is not long at all, but those months put a lot of stress on us.
Just thought I'd start a blog in a forum where i can freely discuss my decision and hear more support than criticism! Hopefully I can make some friends to chat with outside the forum...but at least i'll have a place to hope and vent and eventually celebrate!
I HAVE A QUESTION THAT NO ONE HAS YET TO ANSWER. MY SIGNIFICANT OTHER IS TRYING TO HAVE BABY AND WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IS THERE A GREATER CHANCE THAT SHE MAY HAVE DIFFICULTY GETTING PREGNANT BECAUSE SHE HAS NOT BEEN HAVING SEX. SHR IS 26 YEARS OLD AND JUS RECENTLY LOST HER VIRGINITY BECAUSE SHE IS READY TO BE A MOTHER.CAN ANYONE ANSWER ME??
I once heard pregnancy referred to as "a marathon". I can see where that would be accurate. Lots of work required to prepare, painful, long, causes foot and muscle pain, with a flooding of relief and joy when it's finally over. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant with our first baby. This is my first month off of birth control. I went out and got the ovulation tracker and everything. Brad didn't understand why. I got the ones that look like pregnancy tests only it's to track the lh in your body. He didn't understand how "peeing on a stick" was going to help us get pregnant.
My Fiance just turned 30 on June 26th. We have always known that we wanted to have children but even eince he turned 30 he has been all about really trying. I am all for it, I have wanted to be a mommy since I can remember and I think now that we have bought our first home 7 months ago and are engaged that it is a perfect time to try. I have been doing a great amount of research to see where to begin with everything and I have also gotten a ovulation kit that I will being taking as soon as my cycle ends. Im expecting my period within the next 7 days.
Well....this is my first blog entry. Things at my house are getting a little interesting and anxious-feeling. I guess you would need some background info to really know the story...I have really bad arthritis, ddd (Disc Degenerative Disease), and scoliosis for years...and I'm only 23. Its a progressive type issue and it will only get worse over time. And because of these conditions its having to speed up the when I will be able to have children.
