The Countdown

First.Time.Mom's picture

So the count down begins, only 5 more days til I get to start progesterone and then clomid, I couldn't be more excited and apprehensive about this journey. I have waited so long to have a child and now I feel guilty and scared, scared because I am a strong believer in the whole 2012 thing and guilty because my ex still has a lot of my heart and has just lost his mom who was also like a mom to me and he really needs me now and wants nothing more than for me to come back so he won't be alone. I was his first and only love and abandoned him for my childhood sweetheart.

First time trying to be a first time mom

I'm new to this site but not to trying to conceive, I have PCOS and loved the site I was on with the other women who were TTC with PCOS... but the site gave me hope and let me down all at the same time, I would feel hope when someone got lucky and became pregnant after years of trying but then I would feel like there was no hope when it came to those who tried everything and still had no luck.


So I just starting bleeding this afternoon and I am not sure if it is implantation spotting or if it is my period having come 3 weeks early. I have a bit of cramping in my stomach and back. I have only had a small amount of bleeding, less than a small spoonful probably. So I am crossing my fingers on the implantation bleeding.

End the Pre-Pregnancy Weight Plateau

I am 26 years old and obese. I have been working hard to get to a healthier weight before my husband and I start trying to conceive. I have lost 15 pounds so far but the holidays have slowed my progress. I haven't gained any back, but I haven't lost any in over a month now. I am sticking with my work out routine and back on track with my eating habits.

the beginning

well the test results are in and its saying that i have POCS and inorder to have another child I need help. So on friday I go to the Gyno to start my 1st round of Clomid. I am freaking out over the high chance of twins as I already have a 7 yr old. But thats a chance I am willing to take after 5 yrs of trying to have another baby join our family I am just about willing to do anything I can. I am hoping real bad that this will work and will work very soon.

Confused & TTC

I am concerned and not ready to go see my doctor.
I had my period start and stop 3 times last month which is very unusual.
I have not had my period AT ALL this month (November).
I have had lots of lower back pain, cramping, moodiness, headaches, and vaginal pain.
The vaginal pain is an off and on thing, but when it hits its pretty bad.
I have pain during sex, which is not comfortable.
I had sex once last month.
I am concerned that something may be wrong or I might be pregnant.
Can someone give me some advice?

OMG got a positive for my ovulation test strip

I'm so excited on the 11th day of my cycle I test positive for ovulation, I was not a believer of these test strips. so me and my husband happen to make love the day before and then that same day I test O and the day after. Sooo now it's a waiting game, I just hope I was able to conceive sometimes I think that this month is not my month. So I don’t know if I did right by one, not continuing to test my urine for LH (I thought that it would oka to stop being that I already tested positive) and secondly, we only made love those three day's.

Sigh, I'm so frustrated with ttc though I know I shouldn't be. We've only been ttc for 5 months now and I'm already frustrated. I realize theres couples that have been ttc for years without any luck and I suppose I wouldnt be as frustrated if I didn't get pregnant almost instantly the first time. I got pregnant within 2 months of ttc, mind you I was on bc for 7 years (including 4 cycles of depo--which i stopped as soon as i was informed of the effects, living two hours away from my SO, and only actually "trying" 4 times!), it ended in a m/c and I haven't been able to get pregnant since.
