ok so our last day to bd was yesterday the 19th and my af is due the 31st so technically we have 11 days and not 14 right? Anyhow, NOW WHAT? Do I seriously just sit back and wait hope and pray? I will go absolutely insane. I almost tested today hehe. Mayne I will just continue bd'ing everynight and pretend I didn't ovulate and I still have time to catch the egg or something! Lol any hints on what else I can do to keep my mind off of it for the next several days?

Shopping - stay as busy as possible and try not to let the 2ww consume you. Easier said than done I know. I don't count my calendar days anymore. I know when AF is to arrive - actually, I give myself a window of when she might arrive since my cycles go anywhere from 26-31 days. This way I don't get false hope. Will this be your first?

Thanks PBA74, my cycles are a little off as well so I'm pretty sure my af is due the 31st (35day cycle) and if I doesn't show by the 3rd-ish then I will get reall excited! This will be my second child. My daughter Victoria was born on June 14th 2007 at 24 weeks due to an incompetent cervix and pa__sed away on the 15th. This is our 2nd cycle ttc. How about you?

I'm so sorry for you loss. I had a missed m/c last Nov and a chemical in Feb. My doctor wouldn't do any testing until I had 3 m/c. I changed jobs thinking I'd get a fresh start and conceive in the summer months. Well, it didn't work out that way. I changed doctors and she started b/lw that very day of my first appt. I did a pelvic u/s last week and she said all was good. This will be our first. DH and I want so badly to be parts, but it has been quite the struggle for us. Especially, since all our neighbors and good friends are all starting to have kids. I'll be out of state when AF is supposed to show, which is actually really good. DH will be with me and I won't be tempted to stress out and obsess over it. If she doesn't show while I'm gone, I'll be testing when I come back on Nov. 4. AF is due right around Halloween. I guess we are in the 2ww together. I'm wishing you lots and lots of luck. Are you taking any meds? ~Amanda

Hehe don't work about your typos I just noticed some of my own lol. No I'm not taking any meds but if I'm not pregnant this month I'm considering begging my doctor to start me on something. I conceived my daughter first cycle off birth control with just normal s_x on anyday. Now I try to track my ovulation and have s_x a couple days before, during, and after just to up my chances of catching that d__n egg. I seriously didn't know getting pregnant was so hard until last month when my af showed up. We just bd every other day and it didn't work! So I started looking at ovulation calculators and stuff. Before I got pregnant with my daughter my cycle was 28 days excatly BUT I was on bc so maybe that had something to do with it. After birth I bleed off and on and then I had two cycles 35 days each. So I calculated my cycles as if they were 28 days all the way through 35 days so we bd every other day and sometime everyday Oct. 7th-19th. Whheeww, that was a lot to say. I hope your hanging in there with this rambled message hehe. I am so so so sorry for your losses also. Its a tough road that no parents should have to go through. You are still a parent even though your children are on earth with you. We will both have have healthy babies to bring home from the hospital that we will raise and that will out live us in middle '08. I'm sure of it. (THINK POSITIVE) o know excatly how you feel about friends and people around you getting pregnant. Happy for them and so many other emotions. Have you heard of spals? Oh yah what's, B/lw??? Ok ttys

No, haveing heard of spals. What is it? B/w is bloodwork. I threw an extra letter in there. I'm only 33 but have had to increase the font size on the screen b/c I can't see the lettering. LOL.....this is with my gla__ses on! I know what you mean about being so hard. I do OPK's (ovulation predictor kits) and I take my temp every morning before getting up. I have a chart on Fertility Friend that helps me know when I've actually Ovulated. Poor hubby - he finds it stressful as well. I try to make it as fun as possible, but sometimes I'm not in the mood but need to b/c of the timing. I'm wishing you lots and lots of baby sticky baby dust. Maybe we'll get pregnant together and can enjoy each step as we progress through nine months!

Oh I have HORRIBLE EYES! I haven't even worn my gla__ses in YEARS. Thanks for reminding me that I need to make an apointment to get my eyes checked and hopefully get some contacts! SPALS dot com is subsequent pregnancy after loss support. Its all private and email based, its wonderful. You should check it out and be added to the list for sure. How many cycles have you guys been trying. Sometimes I'm not in the mood either but I make myself do it and halfway in its worth it hehe. My hubby doesn't want me to get involved with temp and cm and cp. Lol he doesn't even know that stuff exsist he just say he wants us to relax and conceive naturally like we did our daughter. We weren't trying with our daughter that's why it was so easy! But I'm sure he would be uncomfortable if I put my legs up after s_x against the wall or something. He is so laid back and calm as a cuc_mber it just eats me up! Lol men! I'm jealous I wish I could be so un-stressed about this. My husband thinks you just have s_x whenever you want without proctect and you will be pregnant NOT he was actually shocked when my af showed up last month. He was like we had s_x so much. Hopefully we are pregnant now together! We really would be there for eachother through every step, starting with out 2ww. :) ttys

shot 2ww wait for me too well only like 1 week & 2 days - if AF doesn't show up; then i will test next day. so Nov 2nd should be my testing day that leaves me will 11 days from now. but i might be testing on Halloween the night before af is due if isn't here by then. i totally have a feeling we are both PG both have signs, tummy aches, head aches, backaches, gas like no other, extra extra discharge, tired alot, sore throat, run & stuffy nose. hmm thats it i think <3

Hey Shop - how you doing today? Men are pretty amazing. I know my DH was shocked when AF arrived in Sept. He was a bit diappointed and more upset than myself. But, he snapped right out of it to start again. We got married June '06 and started ttc right away. I got pregnant in Sept - lost the baby in Nov, got pregnant in Jan/Feb which ended up as a chemical pregnancy. We've been ttc ever since. I switched doctors and I'm sooooo happy with my new one. She is very proactive and has me doing bloodwork on cd 3 and cd 21. I go in Wed for b/w - which is cd 21 for me. I am so engrossed with the b/w and making the appointments that I'm not stressed. That's awesome you DH is so cool about things - we (women) need the men to be cool as cuc_mbers. Well, I hope you are having or had a great day. KENDRA - how are you doing? How long have been ttc?
