Richie Cotton is a self-described math nerd. He's also a fan of math and charts. He and his girlfriend are trying to conceive so he compiled a chart to his girlfriend and himself figure out how long it will take them to conceive. Doesn't everyone have a partner like that?
When Danielle Young, 29, found out she was pregnant, she was amazed. She'd been diagnosed with bicornuate uterus, a rare condition that makes it next to impossible to carry a baby to full term.
As this is my first blog, I feel the need to give some background on our situation. My husband and I have been actively trying to conceive. We knew there would be some type of a challenge. At age 13 I started my period and it was regular for 9 mo. I then started my period and it lasted for 3 months straight, I was only a freshman in high school.
I'm trying to understand the discrepancy between gestational age as determined by ultrasound, LMP and the timing of ovulation.
My husband and I got married Nov 8th, 2010 and we have decided it is probably time to start trying. I am in school and work a part-time job and he is in the USAF. There is going to be a waiting list for the program I want to do, so now is better than ever if I am going to have a break anyways from school.
I have been on the pill for about 14 months now. I just stopped taking it about nine days ago, and my husband and I would like to conceive.
The first day of my LMP was June 17, 2009. I had sexual intercourse on the June 25th, July 1st and July 8th with an ex-partner. I then missed my period on what would have been July 15th. I had intercourse July 18th.
My ultrasound on the September 15 said I was 13 weeks pregnant. I didn't have sex at all before my last period and that means I would have got pregnant on my period but I hadn't had sex till after it. Do you know when I possibly conceived?
So, it's official! My husband is finally ready to "try" getting pregnant. Now I just have to be patient and have fun! Boy it's hard to be patient when it is something I want so bad! I'm just excited that we are starting a new chapter in our lives together!
