Trying to Conceive Blogs

  • Not Pregnant...again

    I just got my third period after going off birth control and I'm getting pretty antsy. I really want to have a baby and start a family.

  • Impatient and anxious

    So, DH and I were successful with the BD'ing on the day I should have O'd, so now I'm waiting on whether or not AF is gonna rear her ugly head. I am 2 days from starting AF (according to my cycle length before m/c and D&C) and have not noted any of my usual telltale signs of spotting yet. I have planned to take an HPT this coming Wednesday, provided AF doesn't show before then. I do feel like maybe I am pregnant; like that instinct only a woman has about her body. Like the first 2 times I got pregnant, I just knew. I kinda feel like that now and hope I'm just not playing tricks on myself.

  • Emotional Mess

    Today I am a mess.

  • Too Tired

    So I wanted this to be the month that I conceived. I wanted it so bad! I ovulated around my birthday (last weekend) and it would have been the perfect birthday present!

  • Period!

    So really? You here the word period and secretly cringe, or maybe not secretly! But for me it has a whole different meaning!! It means, I have one down, one more to go! Before I can start trying that is! I was never so disappointed when my Dr told me I had to wait 2 whole periods! I thought oh man 2 whole months? Then I most likely wouldn't get pregnant for another 6 or so, needless to say I was upset, but would rather have a healthy baby, than a fast one. So I agreed, and went on. Well you can imagine my surprise when I woke up Friday morning to the awful gift!!

  • What's going on....

    Hi there, well i'm not actually trying to conceive but had to choose a catagory. However, I am a bit puzzled!! I have a 28 day cycle usually, regular as clock work, therefore my last period was dec 9th and I should have been due around Monday. However, I have had no cramps or signs of AF coming as I usually would. The puzzling thing is, I was away for xmas and returned to my partner on the 29th of december and well yeah we had some catching up to do! er hem... plenty of action... but I doubt I would have been fertile at this time as it would be day 21 or so of my cycle.

  • 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.

  • On the road to baby

    I went to see my OB yet again this past Thursday the 26th for my annual exam finally. Since the whole pregnancy/miscarriage fiasco over the past few months, my annual check-up was pushed to the side. So I had my exam done and brought up some health concerns I had about getting pregnant again. I found out this past December that my mother's mom had her thyroid removed and no one knows why. She did not disclose information about her health to children. My mother went to the doctor for a persistent sore throat and they found she had a lump on her thyroid.
