Hello! I am 24 and my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for about a 8 months now! I have really bad anxiety and am very impatient ;) I am going on this week to get an ultra-sound and get on Clomid. I am still waiting for my period for this month. Today is day 28 and I am usually a 24-27. I took a test got a negative I think I held it in the stream to long:( I will wait to see if it comes. I am cramping and am extremely sleepy even after 7-8 hours? False neg. are possible right? Anyways any comments relating to my post or words of wisdom would be great:)

Me and my fiance have been trying to conceive for over a year now, and I have done three rounds of Clomid. My Obgyn tells me since I've had a child before that I can have another one. I've really started to loose hope. My period is always late, and I start to get excited, but it never works out. Has anyone had the same problem, and found something that worked? I'm only 24 years old and I feel like, like it's not fair. So many people are drug addicts, and irresponsibly woman are getting pregnant, why cant a good couple that are good parents have another child. We have a beautiful three year old that is our world, but we just would like to have a couple more. I've been so frustrated and emotional, because I just feel like its never going to happen for us. Is anyone have these fealings or frustrations?

Can you get pregnant a week before your period, and if so, will you still have that period and just miss the next one, or will you miss the first one?

Can anyone give me any info? I'm two weeks late (not normal for me) I have been trying to conceive for 6 months, I suffer from PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) so getting pregnant can be very hard. Over the course of the day I've been getting little brown spots of discharge. I took a HPT last week an It came back negative. I have yet to start bleeding. I would normally have by now. Is there a chance I might be pregnant? Anyone who has any information, would be realllly appreciated
