Hi girls, I havent been coming here for that long as i have just came off the miscarriage part in this forum. So i was hoping that people would like to join me as cycle buddies, to swap notes about things that seem odd and what not and to support each other. I am on CD 14 and have a 28-30 day cycle.

Hi, Ok so i will start off. As you know i have had 3 pregnancies, We decided ttc in late feb o4 fell preggos in april 04, had my son on jan 15/05 fell proggos in april again it was due 3 days b4 my sons 1st birthday (lost the baby). I had to wait ttc for another baby for 6 months due to molar pregnancy. Decided to ttc in dec 05 fell preggos in feb 06 and lost it. Here is my problem, Every time i ttc it feels as though It will never happen lol. I am so impatiant awwww the 2ww makes me frustrated. As you know everything that happens to your baody makes you wounder those three words "am i pregnant". I am on cd 14 so all the weird things that happen to my body are going to start clouding my mind and i will need to let it all out. lol.

Hi Kristie, I am hoping for a January baby as well. I will be ovulating on or near the 16th and then i will have to start the dreaded 2 ww. I don't have any children yet......my dh and I started ttc this past August. I fell pregnant right away, in August, but it ended in a very early miscarriage. I waited until December to ttc again and I got my bfp on Christmas day. I miscarried at 8 wks. The doctor told me to wait two full cycles before I started trying again so March was my first time trying again. I thought for sure I was pregnant but AF ending up showing right on time. I'm hoping April is my month now. Good luck with your 2 ww!!!

i am also hoping for a new year baby. i have been ttc for actually 13 months today. i have a daughter that will be 3 in may. i have had 2 chemical pregnancies and 1 m/c. the m/c was in october. i too spent a little time in the pregnancy loss and m/c section of the forums. i was quite angry after losing my pregnancy. i lost the baby at 12 weeks after hearing a heart beat and seeing a little turkey body with an alien head. i am 24 and have no infertility issues. i am on cd11 right now. expecting my period between 1-4 of may(maybe, had a screwed p cycle last month as everyone has been hearing about. sorry.) i would love to have a waiting buddy. thinking i will O between the 17-20.

Hi ladies! Dh and I have been trying to concieve our first since Jan. Im hoping this will be our month. A friend of mine came over last night and told me that her and her new bf are preg and are getting married in July...so, of course Im excited for her but I wish it was me at the same time-lol..a lil jealousy there. Isnt that horrible? My dh works with her and she has been going on and on about how she wants me to get preg this month so we can go through it together..im like...i know tho feeling-lol..but anyways..Not real sure when I will O-should be around Easter...my cycles have been all over the place since going off bc. This will be my first month using opks so hopefully we will hit the nail on the head!! ..plus..my dh has been taking tons of vitamins..including one called h__y goat! lol!! its like an a'natural viagra! lol!!

LN030905, in the time that hubby and i have been trying to get pregnant 4 of our friends have gotten pregnant and 3 have had their babies. one of our friends got pregnant right when hubby and i first started ttc. so we were thinking we would be pregnant together. but i didn't get pregnant until a couple of months after and then m/c at 12 weeks. so the whole time she was pregnant and i would see her everyday, because we work together, i would get so jelous and angry. and when she gave birth in january, i cried for two days. i could never tell my hubby why i was so emotional because he would think i was a total witch. but it is now getting close to what should have been my due date. i would have been due April 25, and i am starting to feel that anger and resentment towards my body that i felt when i first m/c. especially since i have been unable to fall pregnant. so to round off my point, i don't think a little bit of jealousy is horrible.

 

LN030905 - April 10

Im sure its so much harder for you than it is for me, tish! I shouldnt complain- couldnt imagin having to go through a m/c and then come up to your due date. How hard! I bet your daughter is a doll!! Do you use opks or take temps or anytihng? Im hoping that will do it for me this month! I dont know how much more I can take of bfn's and af's...each month gets worse and worse for me. This past month I thought I was going to have a breakdown...could hardly contain myself through church(started right before we left) and then when we finally got in the car I just started balling uncontrollably. Its so hard...i couldnt imagin 13 months ! I will deff be praying for you guys!

LN030905, i have been charting since March 11. not very long, but, u have been using opk's for a while now. i do find them to be quite helpful. if not in actual conception, yet, they are helping me get to know my cycle a little better, which is that i have no cycle. i never have the same length of cycle, i don't usually O on same cd. my periods are not usually the same length. so i really have to go by averages and the opk's. i have averaged out my cycle to be about 30-34days in length. that is since i started using them. so hopefully with the temping, i should get an even better read on things. but i have changed my eating habbits drastically since i first started ttc. i take prenatals everyday, only allow myself 1 caffinated item per week. i don't really eat a lot of sugar anymore, i have been eating a lot of raw veggies and drinking a lot of decaff green tea and water. so i pee all the time. i hope you will be off of the ttc band wagon soon, in a good and pregnant way, of course. :)P

trish! I am in the same boat as far as cycles go...before I started birthcontrol about 3 yrs ago, I had normal 28 day cycles..and of course during bc I had them, too..but in November of last yr I switched to seasonal, where I only had a period every 3 months...i quit the pack in jan and my next period should have came in Feb, but I did get a period in jan..normal-same day as it normally would have came and even same flow. But then in Feb my cycle was 32 and this past month it was 36. I was tryin to just find the middle of my cycle, pay attention to cm and bd as often as we could, but that wasnt working, so were taking a different approach this month with the opk's. Dh is not a pill taker at all, but thankfully when I went to buy primrose, soy, and the other vitamins that have been suggested, he asked if there was anything he could take..so I got him some and he has been taking them. Also, i am a sweets lover and havent been eating all that great, so today I started hitting the gym again and Im tryin to eat more spinach (folic acid) salads..and of course drinks lots of water! I havent gotten an inkling of a second line on an opk yet, so im just basically waiting. I did buy some green tea over the weekend, but I wasnt sure when I should start drinking it? i think i heard not to after ovulation, but wasnt sure..what do you think?

 

tish - April 10

careful not to exersizer too much. that could also delay your cycles. i drink my green tea only one cup per day and not a very big one either. green tea is great for helping flush toxins from your system, so if you have a bad day and eat alot of junk, those are the days that are best to drink it. i hear so many things about when is a good time to eat what and what not to eat and all that jazz, so i try not to read into everything. if i did i would go even more nuts. there is allready a great big baby hungry monster where my sane fun s_x loving self used to be. i have even read information on how to concieve a boy. that is pure crazy ness, but yet i printed it and put it in my ttc note book. yes, i have a note book. i keep my charts, a journal on my opk's and cm and AF and possible symptoms and all kinds of stuff. on top of tons of stuff i printed off of the internet on tips for getting pregnant. i know of this great site, if you haven't all ready found it, that helps keep track of menstrual cycles and O cycles. you can enter all kinds of facts in and it will help you calculate. it's great for the calculating retarted like myself. mymonthlycycles.com

Oh my gosh!! lol!! i have a notebook, too!! lol!! I felt like such a loser..its actually like a big ol' planner with a folder!!! lol..and in the notes section, I hve lil scribbles!! lol!! Thats funny!! Thank GOD im not the only one!!! lol!!! I took subway to my husband today for lunch and he saw spinach and asked my why i had spinach on my sub and I was like..lol..bc it contains high levels of folic acid..and he thought I was nuts..lol..he thinks im starting to obsess....HELLO!!! Im there...lol. Oh well, it could be worse, I could have a planner..oh, wait..i do!! lol!! Thanks for the site, Ill check it out!!

 

tish - April 10

yeah no problem. i am so glad to hear that i am no the only one crazy person with a note book. do you keep a calender in yours to mark the days you GOF and how many times? i have that in my notebook. that way if i do get pregnant, i can look back and kind of have an idea of the date of conception. i am such a dork. but so are you, so now i don't feel so bad. ps, i found, at target, these dha suppliments that i have been taking for about a week now. they say to take along with your prenatal vitamins. so i thought i would start taking them and maybe they will help up the ante on my end. i can't remember what they are called. but when i get a chance i will post to you what they are so maybe if you want to you can check them out.

 

LN030905 - April 10

Im a__suming GOF..has sometthing to do with s_x?lol..but yes, I do mark it. Im also over on the Wanna Wait thread and we have a yahoo site, that has a calender we all keep track on. I would love to know what those vitamins are, so when you get a chance, thanks! ive been taking prenatals, soy and primrose in addition to my normal calcium. Its a choir, but I feel like I have to..lol. I havent started temping yet, thought I would wait until today to start, but I forgot to put my therm. next to the bed, so hopefully I will start that in the morning. Im worried, bc I have heard its so hard to get used to and figure it out. Is your dh on any vitamins? Where are you guys from?

 

tish - April 10

we are from Apple Valley, Southern California. about 3 hours from Las Vegas. you? my hubby is not taking any vitamins. he has cut down smoking to 4 cigarettes a day and doesn't drink very much caffine either. i am trying to get him to take at least a multi vitamin, and i almost had him convinced because we were having such a hard time ttc, then we went to the doctor and they did a sperm count and he is very high and has great sperm, so that shot my case all to hell. he thinks he doesn't need them now. we are both perfectly healthy and there is no reason for us to not be able to concive fairly easily. GOF, is "good old f***ing". i heard it on another site. i just about peed i was laughing so hard when i figured out what it was. you know with the temping, it won't tell you that you have ovulated until after you O, so using the opk's works out a little bit better because they tell you before. they give you a heads up. but temping is also good, because it confirms that you have ovulated. so even if ou miss a day here or there, as long as you temp during the time you are supposed to ovulate and a little after, it should help a lot.

oh, i forgot, that suplement is Expecta Lipil DHA for expecting and nursing moms. it is called the brain vitamin. it helps develop the brain and eyes. it is the same thing that babies get from b___st milk that help them develop. they have started puting it in formula as well in the past few years. i took it when i was pregnant with my daughter, her name is Mercie by the way, and she is soooooo smart. sometimes i listen to her talk to herself while she is playing and wonder how she got to be so smart. she looks like a 4 year old because she is so tall and talks like a 4 or 5 year old. she b__ws my mind. when the thought crosses my mind of what if i can't have anymore kids and i start getting depressed about it, i just look at her and think how cool and amazing she is and feel satisfied with the one child i have.
