Hi Looking For A Quot Waiting Buddy Quot

Hi, I've posted occasionally on this site over the past few weeks. My DH & I have been TTC since last April. I have been pregnant twice and both times miscarried early on (9 weeks no heartbeat, baby had died a week or so earlier then 8 1/2 weeks, blighted ovum confirmed) The second loss was December, we waited for 2 periods before trying again so this past month was the first one and unfortunately not this time:o( So now I am focussing on this month (hoping AF WON'T come on 4th April!) Is there anyone else waiting for that sort of date too that we can maybe encourage each other as we wait? I am hoping so much it happens this month and that this time we'll get to keep our little one -it's been a rough year! (especially as several friends have been having babies which makes it even harder!) Thanks :o) P.s Just finished AF Saturday, have had alot of white-ish discharge since. Quite runny. Anyone else had this? I don't think I usually do after a period or at least not as much.

P.s- I'm in the UK so my times will be a bit out! I just thought I should have said, sorry!

Hi Alison: I will wait with you! There may be a few more joining later (a few of us who were waiting, but got af :( in March). Sorry about the miscarriages for you. I had one in Dec. 04, waited one cycle, and have been unsuccessful so far. The other weird thing, is that my periods have been much lighter and shorter, they use to be 4-5 days and now have gone down to 2 days! It is very troubling. I too, am hoping that af won't come on April 4 or 5. I am going to try an OPK this month too. Sorry for you rough year, I can relate to a degree. I am in the US.

Hi enail, Thanks! My first period after m/c was shorter and since then they've seemed more normal except still some little clots and the discharge I mentioned after this last one. Somtimes I think I'm looking for things/thinking about things too much if you know what I mean! Maybe your periods are shorter just cos your cycles are getting back to normal again? It probably takes different times for each person? I've never used an OPK I don't think my DH would approve. He already thinks I'm OTT for writing down my most fertile days and counting to see when I'll ovulate! I've heard they're good though. Are you buying one online? www.earlypregnancy.co.uk are good (although they're a UK site so don't know if are any use) they sell pregancy tests, ovualtion kits etc. I buy the Pre-Seed sperm friendly lubricant from there which is quite good. Hi jen as well, Nice to meet you both-hope these next few weeks go quick! ;o)

Me too girls! Came off of the pill 4 months ago, was 3 weeks late last month - thought maybe - but probably too early anyway! Hoping maybe this month. AF supposedly due April 3rd. I ordered some OPK this month - they should be here by Wednesday so hopefully, they'll help. GOOD LUCK TO ALL. I'm in Canada so my times will match up better with those in the US.

hi alison. well last af was due feb 26th but arrived 4 days late (march 2nd), i have all the preggy signs b4 af arrived but it wasnt a normal af, as it was only here for 2 n half days, still got some preggy signs, bad back, peeing more, sudden bursts of energy, b___bs just feel achy, well saying that i feel achy all over.... done a urine test at docs last week as he thinks the "af" i had was implantation bleeding, but the test was neg, so im gonna try n wait til nxt af due n see wat happens

 

Alison - March 14

Hi Jen, That's a long wait if you think you're already pg! I'd be tempted to test again before then. I hope you are that would be good news to hear :o) I was sure I had pg symptoms leading up to my last AF. My DH and I were both sure I was pg so it was so disheartening when AF came (sigh..) and it was normal length/amount so symptoms must have been in my head. Hope yours are real though. If your doc said they thought you could be then that's a good sign :o)

 

jen xx - March 14

hopefully i am preg but i have heard that some women dont get a BFP till they are nearly 8weeks.. well if i am preg then i guess i fall into that subject aswell... i would be about 7weeks if im preg.. so i gonna try n wait abit longer to test.... hopefully u will get ur BFP aswell

Hi Alison, It must be horrible to go through what you went through, I hope it will work out for you next time. This is second month of TTC for me and I'm already addicted to tests. I bought OPK a little to late this cycle. First I thought I don’t need it, we just started to TTC, but I just couldn’t help. Of course when I bought it I had to try it out even I knew that I probably ovulated. The same thing with pregnancy tests. I’m probably 7 DPO and can’t wait to start testing. I’ll just have to get some tests from internet since ones from stores are so expensive. Of course my DH can’t see where is the fun in peeing on the stick and doesn’t like the idea of OPK and performing on queue, so we agreed that I’ll do the tests, but we won’t discuss the results.

Im due mar 30th. havent ovulated yet so right now im doing the waiting game for that!! lol

I can totally relate to the early "false" signs! DH and I swore I must be pg. 4-5 days DPO was nauseated, sore and huge bbs, metallic taste, etc, etc. I thought it was too early to have signs, but DH thought it must be (bbs were really big!). Then, a week before af, signs disappeared. Must have been wishful thinking? Wacky hormones? Can you make your bbs bigger just by thinking about it? I talked to dr. this am and she says not to worry about shorter periods as long as they are coming when they are supposed to and there is some bleeding. She said if they seem too short, to go ahead and take pg test. If they only knew, I take them anyway : 0. Yes, I had to joke about OPK with DH yesterday . . . I told him, though it does not seem romantic, we would want to bd anyway, so lets just pretend I am NOT timing it just to get pregnant. I think we all have a long wait, but it is good to have others to talk to, and I have to keep a sense of humor about it (or I would go nuts).

Hi enail, I wish I have any of the pregnancy simptoms. Nothing, I can't even make one up. I really like the idea of making bbs big only by thinking of them. Wouldn't that be cool. Emily, are you using OPK?

 

L - March 14

enail - about the bbs thing, mine got HUGE right after coming off of the pill. Seeing as dh is a b___bs man, he was having a great time but as I am already a big c/regular d they were in my way!! I also have blue veins in them (this, for some, can be a sign of pregnancy too - I wish that were the case with me!)

 

L - March 14

By the way, did any of you ever take the pill? If so, how long before you started ov'ing?

 

Alison - March 15

L, I used to take the pill. Stopped last April. I'm not sure when I started ovulating but I conceived in the July if that's any help.

 

Chelsea - March 15

I went off the pill 3.5 weeks ago and my b___bs are huge too...I'm wondering if it's from going off the pill, because I don't think my chances of being pregnant are very good. I think AF is due the 21st, but since I just came off the pill I can't know for sure...I'm in the UK too so we can wait from the same time zone:).
