Sam- you could totally be ovulating, I too read a bunch of stories of women getting prego just days after a D&C. Like Amy? said our bodies are so off after something like that even if you use to not spot during ovulation you may be...or it could be spotting still left over, or maybe from some rough BDing :) I know it's easier said than done but try to relax :)
PS I want that name cheatsheet! I hate using nicknames it feels weird!
Amy- That's crazy you ovulate so close to your period too!! I always thought I ovulated 2 weeks after but I never really knew, so I could be totally off!!! If I'm not prego this month we're going to take a break and when we start trying again in the summer I'll start paying for attention to temping and maybe getting an OPK. Well, I like that you guys BD every 2 days!! My hubby gets stressed too when I say we have to do it tonight! So now I just have to act on it, then he never seems to complain. For some reason though this go around he is 10 times more into us getting pregnant than last month! When should you expect AF this month??
Hudsy (Alicia?) - Yeah that's actually why I went on BC in the first place, I would bleed for 8 or 9 days, then ovulate a few days later, then have about 13 days for the next cycle starts all over again. I've never really felt I needed to get an OPK, maybe if we don't get pregnant in 6 months I may give one a try, but every time in the past we got pregnant like right away. Yeah we have a toddler at home too, so sometimes it's hard because a few nights our son just won't go to bed when it's "adult time". Since I've had cramping a few different times this month I expect it anywhere from the 22nd to the 27th. I'm thinking closer to the 27th maybe becasue I guess stress could have caused me to O late, and our family was sick for a while around new years and for me sometimes that can delay O too I guess.
I am super emotional today. I was "introducing" my husband to all you ladies and telling him how amazing you all are and I actually started crying. I think it is super sad what we all had to go through to find each other. I just want to dump off a truck load of baby dust to you women! I hope we get some BFP's super soon so I can focus on that instead of ttc!!! I have been praying so hard... which is funny too, for some reason last night I was praying so hard and I didn't even need my name list and I was so moved that I started crying then too. You guys are the exact medicine that I needed to heal my broken heart! Thanks so much all you ladies for being there and supporting each other through all the unfortunate struggles!!!!
szw2008- yes, i have to admit there are some spectacular ladies on this site. And you are one of them! Keep praying, God will answer your prayers when the time is right. Keep your faith my dear and good things will come to you in due time.
smr08- I hope you feel better now that you have gotten your hair done. I know it's always a picker upper for me to get my hair all done up...lol Wishing you tons of luck on the train!
Bam- wishing you tons of luck on the train also! Hope your doing well.
I've been reading most of your posts everyday but i have been staying quiet because i dont have much to say....lol...I'm on 9dpo today and this tww seems verrrrryyyyy long this time around...lol.
Sending tons of baby dust to all...let's get some BFP rolling ladies!!!! :)
Amy- ya it's Alicia :-) I have read it's better to have too many periods than not enough!! You're lucky you get to O so often lol. I bet that is hard w/ a baby in the house!!! I can't imagine trying to BD every 2 days w/ a toddler lol, at least you and your DH get the excitement of trying to keep it on the DL ;-) I think 6 months is a good amount of time of trying to do it on your own, I think after 6 months I'll start temping and get an OPK all that crap!! I have no clue when I'll ovulate this month being as my last cycle was 35 days!!! (I've never gone over 30 days!) Well I wish you-us the best of luck!!
Sam- I feel you on what a miracle this site has been for me and so many women! Definitely medicine for a broken heart!! I've gotten sooo much stronger!
Sam- I'm right there with you. It's amazing how close you can get with people you never even met. I thank God everyday for letting me stumble upon this site, I don't think I would have survived if it wasn't for the great friends I made here and the wonderful support they showed me. They lifted me up when I when I fell to my knees, and they continue to hold me up during this trying time. And as northern said you are also one of the spectacular ones!
Alicia- if I had the strength i'd bd eveyday to be sure I didn't miss O time(whenever that may be!)LOL
So how that heck!? are you ladies able to drink grapefuit juice!!!>!?!!? It's sooooooo nasty!!!! I put tons of ice and drank w/ a straw and downed it like I was drinking a cocktail that was waaay too strong! YUCK!!! It's my first day of drinking it, how do you do it!!!? Please tell me it gets better with time!
Morning ladies- it seems this group is very positive lately. I'm very thankful to have such a wonderful group of ladies to talk with, who understand what I've been through. It's hard to talk about this stuff to someone who hasn't been through it. In many ways I feel closer to you ladies that my friends in real life!
Alica- After a month you will get used to the grapfruit juice. I find my self still drinking it sometimes. :)
Dropping off some super sticky baby dust*************************************************
Alicia - I suggest you drink the Ruby Red Grapefruit juice, goes down a little better. I drank it with lots of ice and a little bit of sugar, lol or whatever sweetner you use...
Girls i'm passing by to sprinkle you girls with tons of baby dust!! ****************************
Good morning everyone!! Well today is cd14 and I've gotten 4 high readings on my CBE monitor and no peaks days yet...which is supper odd! I think I'm going to o late this month. I'm not quite sure what is going on with my cycle this month. I'm thinking it could be my workouts have been a little more intense and I've really started to eat extra healthy, so maybe that caused the change in my cycle. I have no O pains yet or anything and I'm really worried I might no o this month at all. Hopefully i'm just late...
Anywho, enough about me!!! How is everyone this morning?!! Sending SSBD to everyone!
Alicia- I drink the ruby red, it taste much better in my opinion(lots of ice!) My DH just goes with the flow!LOL I think it was much easier when my kids were little to bd whenever we wanted, my 12 yr old sleeps like a rock, it's the 21yr old I worry about, she don't miss a trick! LOL
Steph_b- I feel the same way about the ladies here, I think they know more about me then my friends here at home.
Rossie- i'm standing under all that baby dust, hope it sticks!
angelbaby- keeping my fingers crossed that it's just a late O...keep busy!
Well it's cd9 for me and I already started bd'ing just in case, I think DH knows that i'm more than very determined this month! SSBD to all of us!
Steph- That's good to know! Today is was already better this yesterday, but it sits in my stomach like a rock...weird I know. Well I'm with you about the ladies on this site, I wish we all lived near eachother and we could throw a huge bash and do lunches with women get their BFP :'-( ah in a perfect world...but I suppose in a perfect world none of us would be on this site to begin with!
Rossie and Lori- Thanks for the ideas with the grapefuit juice. I decided I'll drink a glass every morning w/ my prenatals so I just toss in the pills and down it. I did use extra ice today and it helped! Oh and Lori, I can't imagine trying to BD w/ a 21 yr old in the home! You're going to have to at 5am!
Angelbaby- your workout could've easily affected your O date. That said, I would still BD when you get a good readin, those things aren't flawless you know! Good luck this month!!!!!
Well my hubby and I have Bd'd twice in 3 days and I'm on my second day of grapefuit juice!! we started eatind better and we've gotten at least 3 servings of fruit and 3 of veggies everyday and I started my low impact workout again!! WOO HOO I'm all geared up and ready for my BFP
hello ladies just popping on to sprinkle lotsof baby dust for us all! hopeflly we get lots of bpf to start this year off, would be so nice for us all!!!
am 18dpo but still think af is going to come. when does everyone start testing? i am usually a 28day cycle but last month was a 35 day cycle so if i havent got my af by the 30of jan 9 if i can hold out that long) ut i hate seeing bfn :( my would of been due date would of been the 2nd of march so it would be wonderfull if we gota bfp before then
Good Afternoon everyone! Stopping by to see what's going on with everyone! I do agree with everyone else who’s mentioned it; you are all such a wonderful group of ladies! CD 16 for me, and I’m not 100% sure what day I O’d on, but I’m pretty much on the TWW at the moment. *CROSSING MY FINGERS*
As for all the Grapefruit juice mention, the Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice is less tart. I tend to eat them rather than drink the juice, and recently realized that the Texas Grapefruit was the sweetest I’ve had so far.
Alicia - yeah, it's not easy to BD with a toddler that doesn’t like to sleep, but he's gotten good at least staying in his room at night when we put him to bed. Hopefully you won't need to get the OPK :)
rachaellou06 - I usually test about 14 DPO because AF normally comes 13 DPO. Since the days from O to AF don't change (from what I've read), I've always felt comfortable waiting the 14 days.
I know what you mean about wanting to get the BFP, I was due on June 17th (Our wedding anniversary), and on top of it, I have a bridal shower that weekend, if I don't have my BFP and am at least a few months into, I'm not going to be happy :(
Well ladies, another one of my friends has just anounced that she's pregnant with her second child. I wish i could say I wasn't envious but that would be a lie. I'm really, really happy for them because they are a great couple and great parents but i just wish at some point it could be me and DH that are celebrating and giving everyone great news. PS. I'm feeling AF coming along, have breast pains like i usually have and very faint cramps like i usually have so i'm feeling a bit bumbed now. Guess i should stock up on the feminine products before the 18th :(
preciouspg- i think im going to waite till after the cd35 just too make sure its not a horrible trick as i am really not that confident at symptom spotting after my m/c.
cocacolapanda- thanks for that i didnt relise that it didnt change, sorry you had ur loss on ur wedding anniversary it must of been hard, hopefully u will have ur bfp by then and it will help a bit :) how long have you been married for?
northensunshine- i know what u mean it feels like everyone i know is anouncing there pregnacys at the mo and some of them were not even trying. it will be us soon :)
Northernsunshine- Like the ladies here have said it is not over until af shows up...we will get our BFP when our right time comes I hope it is soon for all of us.......I really hope af stays away from you
rachel- I would say 14dpo is good normally af shows up 14 days after O at least that what I have read.
cocacolapanda-good luck..keep my fingers x for you
rachaellou06 - It will be 4 years this June, wow, time really flys by fast! Yeah, I'm not really looking foreword to it unless I've got my little baby bump. If I do get pregnant this cycle it won't be on anyone's birthday or anniversery, so hopefully I'm safe! lol. I'm wondering if it was just a bad omen from the begening, my brother in law got married on my husbands birthday (and it didn't last). I don't really believe in that stuff, but sometimes it just makes me wonder.
northensunshine - Yeah, I know exactly what you mean, a friend from college just had her 4th a few weeks ago. Another friend just entered her third trimester. One of my best friends and her hubby are going to be TTC in a few months, they get pregnant while taking bc, so it's going to be hard if she gets preggers before me. I also just noticed the other day that one of the ladies in the office is just starting to show.
Rachael- I refuse to test early, i'm gonna make sure she's good and late. My last cycle was 33 days, the past several months i've been regular at 26-27 days, so that morning I was going to test and surprise, there she was! I always joke and say that i'm going to test in the delivery room:)
Amy- CROSSING MY FINGERS with you!
Denise-Thank You :) we actually did the hotel thing a few times!LOL Our timing was perfect lastnight, our daughter came home after all was said and "done" LOL
northern- we are all envious when we hear of peoples bfp's, it's just natural. Stay positive, yours is coming :)
Well, I think I'm going to have a serious talk with my aquarium snails because for the
last two months they've been popping out babies and I have 14 to this day. I should start eating what they eat, maybe then I'll get my BFP...But I only want '1'...LOL!!!
preciouspg- don't those snail eat like green algae?? LOL no thank you!!
Rachael- i'd wait til CD35 too! my last cycle was 35 days!!! I've never in my life had one so long, of course I got my hopes up only to be let down, this month I'm going to TRY to wait til cycle day 35 if I haven't started!! Emphasis on try....I just can't wait sometimes!!! GOOD LUCK!
Amy good luck this month!! I hope you get your BFP
Lori- you just need some locks on your door and music turned up...say you are going to shower and your hubby needs to shave?? ha....Have a quick BD then take a shower!! That makes it sort of fun too ;-)
Northern: I know what you mean...I found out yesterday an old co-worker of mine is pregnant with her second child and her first son just turned ONE in November....she also told me they weren't even "trying"....AAAHHH...I just don't understand it.
All of you ladies keep up your hopes. Try to stay positive no matter what happens. Even if you don't end up with your BFP's right away and have to make it through the "dates" we will be here for eacother...I've been through many of mine...more than I thought. And now as I come close a year anniversary of the miscarriage I have to say thank you to all of my MH friends who have been there with me. I can't believe I've known some of you for almost a year..!!
I just hope something pays off....SOON.....I am running out of patience....!!!!
Dana your in my prayers always and I really pray it happens for you and DH soon.
Lori...Glad you and DH are still going strong, your my Hero.
Bridgette--I didn't see you but I hope all is going well for you also
Hope all you ladies are doing well you are all in my prayers(even those of you who have joined since I have been on "break").
I am doing ok..never heard back from my job =( he really made me think I was hired..how rude lol Oh well I guess it wasn't meant to be. I guess physically I am ok I have my pap appt on the 21st so I guess I will find out for sure then. I never called to see if my Hcg went back down but I did have follow up bw and the doctor gave me some pills to take for 3 days that makes you have contractions and a broad spectrum antibiotic at my appt on the 28th finally finished all that =)
Maybe all the Valentines Day love'n coming up will equal lots of BFP's =)
babyhope8- thanks i am just so nervous to test i think i will leave it a little longer
cocacolapanda- 4 years congratulations! time does go very fast is scary at how quickly it actually goes! i really hope that you get pregant before ur anniversery that would be so lovely! i will keep everything crossed for you :)
smr08- i think i am going to waite till around the 30th of jan to test as then i will be very late. i am trying not to symptom spot at the mo lol as ever since my m/c i seem to get a few symptoms before my af comes anyway!
preciouspg- lol, that has made me laugh, i was wondering the other day why my fish keep havinf lots of babys and i dont!
hudsy- thanks, i have made sure we have no tests in the house and avoided the areas in the shops were they are so i am going to try be really good, my df dosent want me to test till much later as he said he hates seeing my face when its a bfn
I saw the following on facebook and i had to post it here so all you lovely ladies would be able to post it to your facebook accounts as well. In memory and dedication to all of you who have suffered such a terrible lose...My heart goes out to you.
IN MEMORY of all babies born sleeping or whom we have carried but never met or held in our arms. Make this your profile status if You or someone you know has suffered the loss of a baby. ♥ The majority won't do it, because unlike cancer, baby loss is still a taboo subject ♥ Break the silence, In Memory of all Angel Babies gone too soon but never forgotten* ♥
Tausha, thanks for stopping by and letting us know how you are doing!!
Northernsunshine, I love it, i just posted on my facebook and im about to post on my myspace as well!!
Passing by to dump my daily dose of baby dust!! ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
morning Girls! TGIF!!!! I'm so over this week! Well if i'm correct and af is back on track O time is right around the corner, busy weekend for me ;)
Dana- it is hard to believe! But where would we be without each other??? Always praying for you.
Tausha- hi sweetie! Glad to see you dropping in from time to time. Sorry about the job, maybe they just had to finish out interviews before they make the final decision. Well i'm back on the train, fingers crossed!
Rachael- praying that she's on a 9 month vacation from your house :)
northern- one of the other girls on here posted it on FB and I quickly made it my status. I love to see Salvatore's and all the other Angel Babies memories live on.
Hey ladies - nice to read through your posts and see how you are all doing its lovely to see such positive and encouragement. I am keeping everything crossed that the positive vibes bring some much deserved BFP's to the group.
Sprinkling baby dust on everyone ******************************************************
Steph, Rossi, and Lori, It's nice to see you on facebook:) I know it is addicting:) I should be doing my workout while the kiddies are sleeping, but guess what I was doing instead? Your right, playing on facebook and farmville:)
Hey ladies!! Just dropped by to sprinkle a little Baby Dust and to vent. A girl I went to HS with just posted on FB that she's 8 weeks prego with her second and her 1st is only 7 months old!!!! This baby was an accident!! Gosh, it makes me so envious!
Just popping in real quick. I haven't had a chance to catch up at all.
Denise - I'm really sorry but I had to delete your post from this morning with your last name on it. MH doesn't let us put out our last names or e-mail addresses on public forums. It's a privacy and safety thing. Just imagine if someone googled you and it brought them here.
I think it's great you guys are all hooking up on FB! Just make sure you give your info through the private messages.
I promise to catch up tomorrow morning and start new threads!
Ok, so I've caught up on all the posts! I just love to see all of the positive energy and love that is flowing. It makes the whole TTC process so much easier when you have friends who know exactly how you are feeling.
I always keep a list of the usernames and first names on my CB spreadsheet. So if you want me to put your name on, just let me know what it is. I'm going to start the new list tomorrow morning.
DH is making lasagne for dinner, but forgot a few things so I'm going to run to the store for him.
Denise - again, I'm really sorry about deleting your post. If I could have just edited out the info I would have, but I couldn't :(
I'm on FB too, so if any one wants to find me, send me a PM :)
Hudsy: I just caught your post about the grapefruit juice. Yes I think over time it gets a little better! :) Since I've been on Weight Watchers I don't drink as much as I did...one cup a day. It's not too bad I have to say...
CD 15 for me and still no positive OPK. I'm using the smiley's this month and I am liking that it takes the guess work out of it but I am REALLY hoping I get a positive in the next few days. If not I think I'm gonna cry....
Tausha: Miss you lady! Thanks for checking in...I'm still here...still not pregnant! LOL!
Don't know if thats story will ever change!! I'm becoming a permanent fixture around here...
Survived the baby shower today. It wasn't too bad but I just didn't let myself think about it too much...
Hello Ladies! I haven’t been around in a while. It’s nice to see some many wonderful (and talkative ladies). Seems like a lot of new people have stumbled upon this group. First off, I want to say that I’m sorry yall are here, but I’m glad we have all found one another for support.
So after 20+ (I lost count) cycles of TTC, I told dh last month that I wanted to take a month off. I don’t think he was thrilled, but it got to the point that BDing was not fun and it felt like a job. I also got the point that I was hating to BD because it is what you have to do to have a baby, yet we still have no baby. Needless to say it has been a much better month. I had become completely obsessed with having a baby and I was living my life in two week increments. Two week wait to ovulate, then two week wait for af. It has helped me put some things into perspective too. I always felt like I HAD to have kids to be happy. This last month I have taken the time to realize that I have a lot of things to be happy and grateful for in my life. Having kids would just be icing on the cake.
I hope everyone is doing fantastic. I’m not sure where everyone is in their cycles, but we are due for some bfps. SSBD.
Oh boy, I have been slacking in my postings on here. SO, update on me I guess. My bbs started slightly hurting the day after that strange light spotting that appeared out of nowhere. If that was O spotting, then that would explain the soreness. I am hopeful, but nervous at the same time. With my last pregnancy, the first thing I noticed was sore bbs then they just got worse till the bloating started. I guess we will just have to wait and see. They are super sore today. I went four-wheeling this morning and every little bump made me wince. *fingers crossed*
Bridgette- you can add me to that list, but I'm really not sure where I am on the train. I'm going to go on a whim here and say I'm in the TWW now starting from the 11th when I had that light spotting. Just to be sure though, I'll start counting from today. It has been almost 4 weeks post D&C now.
Rachael- I have my fingers crossed for you! I hope it's your month!
So, I can't help notice that everyone is really quiet? I'm going to assume that means everyone is really "busy"!!!!
Just wanted to sprinkle a ton of super SUPER sticky baby dust and let everyone know I am still praying for everyone! I really hope each and every one of your lovely ladies gets that much hoped for BFP very soon! For some of you it has been too long of a journey and I hope a new chapter titled "BABY" starts very very very soon!
Here's to rockin the baby bump in the very near future!!!
