Hi Jersey, I'm african american too that lives up North.Me and my dh have been ttc for 6 months. I think I'm Pregnant, af is due 19. We bd around my fertile days, every day. I have been experiencing a lot of symptoms. Breast soreness, cramps, head aches, and mood swings. I will wait to see if af is late.

Hello, Does anyone know how the Montgomery's tubercles look like (for African Americans that is). I've read that they are like white pimples. Angie, do you have them?

Hi all, I'm kinda glad to see this thread :-). I'm TTC, this is my second month going around. I'm mostly trying to be patient and allow the Lord to do what He does in His perfect timing. I just started charting and observing CM. If nothing else it feels good to know what my body is doing at all times. I'm praying for no AF On Nov. 6th.

hello, I am african american too, I am 27 dh is 29, this will be baby 3, we have been ttc for 5 months now. I should have ov on the 8th, my af is due on the 21st. So far, today my nipples became sore and I am having discharge, cramp here and there, nothing major to report, all those symptoms I have learned could be af on her way. I have decided not to test at all until af is late. :) I won't have my hopes up until I start peeing a lot, that is one of the definite signs I normally have during the middle of the night. Never had morning sickness or anything, I was one of those that sailed through with no problems. Congrats to u angie!!! Maybe we will have bfp's this month!!! Only time will tell us what is in store, keep us posted hafsah, when will u test?


Jersey - October 18

hi ladies, well af came yesterday so i guess we shall try again!!!


Paula - October 18

Well I am AA 36yo female ttc since 10/04 for #2. We have a DD who is 91/2 years old. Hoping this is my month for a BFP! I chart on FF and it says I am 14 dpo, when on yesterday I was 16 dpo, so here's to waiting. My LP is usually 15-16 dpo, so I am not stressing to test until af is late. I plan to test on tomorrow. Well, my symptoms are off and on tender b___sts, felt like af was coming since Friday, but still not here, little cramping in the center above the pubic bone, so we shall see. KEEKEE what part of the WI are you from? I am from Trinidad, Sweeeeet T&T!!! Sending baby dust to everyone. Oh by the way I have had 3 m/c, 1 chemical pregnancy, 1 blighted ovum. So here's to hoping this is the month for a BFP and one that sticks!! Sending baby dust to everyone on this thread.


Hafsah - October 18

Paula - October 18
