soulaharny- in regards to your question about ovualting, dont feel bad that is one of the hardest thing about falling preggie knowing when you ovulate. some suggestions though..the female body has this ability to tell us that were horny!! hah yes i know silly, but it isour bodies way of telling us that we r at our peak, we ready to reproduce, it may start to get quiet wet down there. what "normally" happens, i say normally coz everyone is different so hopefully this helps you. after you finish you period you may go through a patch thats kinda like the desert..its dry and if you try to have sex it may hurt or take longer to become wet. then at some stage it starts to open up down there with incresed cervical mucus/discharge..whe you have sex at this time it should be more comfortable and easy. then after ovulation it goes back to be dry..for some!! another tip if your trying to conceive is if you try really hard to have an orgasim during sex this can shoot the little spermen all the way up to the waiting ship..hahah hope this helps :)

hi there girls, I'm new to this site so sorry if im not very helpful. I have two boys already 2.5 yrs and 14months and my husband and have been trying for the last 4 months. I think also we you decide that you want to start trying every month just seems to go so slow and you just wanna know that you preggie. Every month it seemed as though i might have had some of the early symptons, but this month was different! So here's my only clues i can give you that prehaps this month is your lucky month. About 5/6 dpo i started getting mild cramping and really bad bloating, which is quiet normal for me a few days before AF, but not half way through cylce. And then one morning 4 days until Af was due my nibbels had this weird tingling sensation like pins and needles..bloating continued and mild cramping and dizzness now follows. I am now 5 weeks preggie with want we hope is a healthy precious little girl...(fingers crossed) but either way hopefully a healthy little bub. I hope this info helps coz i know how frustrating it can get. oh the day i was expecting AF, I was quiet wet down below to the point that I thought oh Af has come, but when i looked it was cm, but more wet then discharge..really hope this helps girls and i wish everyone the very best of luck all of you deserve this experience, so best wishes xx
