I think this might be it...what do you think?


My boyfriend and I have been TTC for a while and I believe we have finally become successful. Today was the day my AF was due. My "time of the month" is like clockwork and I've been getting my AF for 22 years. It comes in the morning, with a bang and serious cramps, lasts for four days and my breasts are always sore for at least a week and a half beforehand. This month, after my ovulation period, my breasts did not become sore and still aren't, though I have noticed some growth. They are popping out of my bras now even on the first clasp (I'm normally on the second clasp). As for my AF, well, here's the story of the day. I woke up HOPING it wouldn't be there. When I went to the bathroom and wiped, I noticed some little light pink spots on the TP. I thought "Great. Another losing month." It didn't seem like it was going to be heavy, so I just put on a pad. Well, I got to work, went to the bathroom (my need to pee has been through the roof the last two weeks) and noticed that there was no blood, but yellowish mucus instead, but not much of it. Later, I went to the bathroom again, wiped and saw clear, thick, sticky mucus-y stuff and lots of it. And now, there is nothing. I had mild, very mild cramping today and days prior. I'm wondering what's going on? Am I experiencing implantation? There's no way this is a period and if it is I will be sorely disappointed in my body....and sad, too. We want a baby so badly it hurts. I can't take another month of disappointment. I NEED ADVICE!!! HELP!!!!!!!

There are many things that you can do to TTC (Try To Conceive) for instance you can chart your basal body temp at the same time each day to detect when you will ovulate, check your CM (Cervical Mucus), use OPK's (Ovulation Predictor Test) they also tell you when you ovulate, if you don't want to spend a lot of money on them you can always buy the tests at the dollar store. Also after I had my IUD removed in July 2009 I tried almost everything imaginable, such as keeping my legs up for 30min after baby dancing to make sure that no sperm got out, stayed on the bottom, since I read that if the women's on top more sperm will come out, etc. But after 6 1/2 months of trying and no luck I read about a product called pre-seed found at babyhopes.com, it's suppose to be the only lubricant safe for sperm, and it also helps get the sperm where it needs to go, I thought I might as well get it since I had nothing else to lose, and I was going on 7 months of TTC. So that month I used my OPK's and got a positive one on January 6th, 2010, my husband and I baby danced late that night using the pre-seed, and then early morning of the 7th. I finally got my BFP (Big Fat Positive) on January 19th, 2010, I now have a happy healthy 4 month old baby boy =0) So I recommend this product to EVERYONE, since I really think that this is what gave me my BFP! I would start out with the OPK's first since you have irregular cycles, that way you wont miss when you ovulate. Well I hope this helps, and good luck!
