Hi!! My name is Ashley and I am 25 years old. This is my very first blog EVER so please be kind.

Over the past two years my husband and I have tried to get pregnant. Oh lord did we try!
I became a self proclaimed expert on the subject.... when to have sex, when not to have sex, what position, what to eat, what not to eat, what vitamins to take, what kind of underwear my husband was allowed to wear, etc (you get the picture)

What Every Woman Ought to Know About Dollar Store Pregnancy Tests

Saving money always gives me an adrenaline rush. So imagine the rush I felt when I discovered that dollar stores now sell pregnancy tests and are giving name-brand competitors a run for their money. 27 dollar-store pregnancy tests were tested and compared the results with the early-response name brands. The dollar store brand was 100% accurate.

The Waiting Game(s)

The timer has been set and the waiting begins...

It seems as if that is all I've been doing recently - waiting.

I've been waiting to see if I'll actually be late or not; waiting to see if we'll get the house in Alabama or not; waiting waiting waiting.

It's annoying really. Truly, truly bothersome. I know I have to be patient and I know that this may not be 'it' since hubby and I just started trying to conceive #4 but it still seems to be horrifically nerve wracking to simply sit and wait.

Opk Test Strips

Dear Midwife,
Hi I Have just started using opk test strips and heard that these could also be used as an early indication of pregnancy - eg if you got a positive opk test result say 10days after ovulation this could indicate early pregnancy? is this correct? I have three children already but this is the first time I have used the test strips for ovulation prediction,
thank you,
