Getting Pregnant

Here Goes Nothing!

My husband and I have been married for almost a year and a half. We've decided that it's time to bring a baby into our family! We have a wonderful 4 1/2 year old yellow lab, but we've been feeling like something's missing. (How cliche does that sound?) I went to the OB for my yearly check-up a few weeks ago and got the 'ok' to go off the pill. I have two weeks left of my pack and I'm starting to get NERVOUS! A zillion thoughts have been running through my head, "Are we too young? Are we being stupid? What if something goes wrong? What if we can't get pregnant? Is our apartment too small?

I think this is a little abnormal... my HCG is lowwer then it should be. Can you advise me?

My last period was on the 24th of August and here I am surely pregnant with a HCG level of 9432. How is that possible??? I should be about 2 and 1/2 months pregnant, yet my HCG level shows 6 to 7 weeks. So I'm abit confused with the results and my last period. And for sure my belly doesn't look 6 to 7 weeks pregnant. So I truely need some advice from the wise.

The Second Little One

I've never written a blog before. I am almost 6 weeks pregnant with my second child. I decided to write this because I wish I had an account of my first pregancy. My son is 13 months old so it wasn't that long ago that I was pregnant with him, but it all feels so different, and it is difficult to remember. I wish I knew what I was thinking then.

Surprise, You're Pregnant!

Wow. Talk about a big surprise. My hubby and I have 3yr old twins and an 8month old baby. All our children were conceived with fertility treatments. We were told we couldn't get pregnant on our own. Now I'm 6 weeks pregnant and freaking out!! Four children under 4 years of age is going to be alot to handle. Anyone else out there who has gone through the same thing??? I'm looking for all the advice I can get!

Am I?

So, here is my situation. I'm 27 (28 in 3 weeks but who's counting?) and I have had 4 MC. My last 3 were back to back spanning from November 23rd 09 to February 14th 09. I went through a round of blood testing to find out if the problem is me. Everything came back normal except that I am hypercoaguable which means my blood tends to clot quickly. My then Fiance already had a 1 year old daughter, so the likliness of it being him are lower, and my ex-husband and I were both going to be first time parents with my 1st MC in 07.

Want to cry

I want to cry. I feel like i might. I have been very nauseated and vomiting. I am having a ton of cramping. I have been having increased clear discharge. I am completely miserable and getting very easily dizzy. And now I know I am not pregnant. Or at least that my HCG is 0. Not even a hint of being pregnant. I don't have a UTI either. What the hell is wrong with me? Am I crazy. I now have my husband so concerned for me that he has started saying lets stop trying if this is how bad it is going to be. I want to cry this is just miserable. I want to crawl into a hole and sink int the ground.


I knew when I recently married my husband, that he would want children right away, being that he is 41 yrs old and has no previous children. I have one child from a past relationship, but have also been plagued by two miscarriages. There is so much fear and uncertainty trying for another baby. After 8 months of unprotected sex with my husband, the question aroused, "can you have kids?" We went to a urologist and found he has a variocele that was causing his infertility. Hugh? Who would have guessed?
