Im very excited that my husband finally agreed to start trying to have a baby! I have been waiting quite a while, my body screaming at me that it was ready and my eyes following all those new moms holding their own babies. I was starting to feel more and more sad about not having my own and how my husband always said no when I asked him. I think THAT actually made me the most sad. I felt like he wasn't on my side! He has a lot of goals that he wants to accomplish before having children. I understand where he is coming from.

Scared and not sure

A couple of weeks ago my partner and me decided to try to have a baby. We have been together for several years after both coming out of difficult marriages. This year is our 40th birthday, so we feel there is no time to loose. I am scared : what if this relationship breaks down, what if I am too old for this, what if I will not like having a baby, and many other questions.
Day in day out I question myself if this is the right thing to do - but how to find the answers ?
Would love to get your input of people who have been struggling with the same questions

Wanting to be pregnant

Well I'm new to this blogging thing but here goes. I'm 27 and have a beautiful daughter who is now 13 months old. I had a pretty nasty pregnancy with her but she went to full term, and is a very healthy little girl. Well my husband and I really want to have another baby. So we started trying and ended up having two miscarriages back to back. So I've now had 2 regular cycles and have done some acupuncture treatments, hoping that this will help. So I'm 3 days away from my period and the HPT are still showing up negative.

Afraid to take the test

I am a new memeber to this site and the ability to blog has got he hooked. I feel like I finally talk about what I feel and what I am going through and maybe someone will TRULY understand. I am 29 years old ane my husband and I have been trying for 5yrs now to get pregnant. I have had several pregnancy scares and I have come to the point where I am afraid to take pregnacy tests because of the the disappointment and frustration of negative results. I got pregnant 8 yrs ago and I had a miscarriage and I have yet to concieve again.

another fail

Well yet another Fail today, took a test this morning with FMU and yet another BFN! Should not have been surprised really, I knew it would be. It's the hope that's gonna kill me I think. I let myself hope that I'd actually get a positive this time. Now I just wait for AF to show up in the next few days, seems to come the same day as a BFN - it's like taking the test brings it on. :(

When's it my turn?

After nearly 8 months of trying, it feels like I'm never going to have another child. Twice in the past few months I have had some early pregnancy symptoms that ended with a late period. My fiance is so increadibly supportive but I know he's disapointed every month when it just doesn't happen. It's like my heart is being ripped out of my chest, especially when I see other women who appear to have no problem getting pregnant. Everytime I let myself hope just a little, I end up dissapointed :(

The Next Step

It is a day before June and we have begun to TTC our second child. I'm more scared this time than I was last!! I really think it's because I KNOW what to expect now. Not that anything was so severe it should be scary, just that it can be overwhelming. Are we really ready for this? Is this the right time? How will Rylee react? How will we handle the financial part of having a second child? Are we REALLY ready?! I know the answer to all of those questions, because I'm a planner. But, there is still that unknown factor that gets me.
