• Wow, lots of good news bad news today.

    Sher-baby, I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason! Something better is coming your way, you’ll see! Still i know it can be stressful and I’m sorry for that. Not sure how it is in Canada but any chance you can survive on unemployment and dh/db’s income at least while you search?…[Read more]

  • I have felt terrible all day today. Fatigued, achy and now, I have a headache. I only welcome the symptoms because they make me feel like I might be slightly pregnant… only slightly. lol Ugh, I still have about a week or so before I can test and I doubt me feeling under the weather today has anything to do with being (or not being) pregnant.…[Read more]

  • My DH just made an appointment for us with a birthing center run by midwives. It’s a group interview and if I like the place then I can schedule a consult to see if I qualify for a vbac. I know one thing that’ll focus on is my weight, which means, I have to start running today! My consult would likely be in a month or so and I have about 10 lbs…[Read more]

  • Good morning ladies! (Guess I should’ve stated with this comment first, but I was so eager to respond to the posts, lol) I took an ovulation test this morning and it’s positive! Going to be BDing like bunny rabbits for the next 36 hours. 😀

  • sher-baby – That app sounds awesome. You mind sharing? I’d love to check it out. Sorry I’m no help when it comes to eaing gluten or diary free anything. Although, I do know that deep green leafy veggies (like spinach) have tons of calcium!

    holz – that’s interesting! Never occurred to me that food could be a factor in high/low…[Read more]

  • Oh, I also drink a lot of coffee. It’s my biggest weak spot I think… Sometimes up to 3 cups a day. Going to start with only 1 cup a day (or none at all if I can manage some days). /sigh lol

  • preg – yikes! you are going all out! lol That’s awesome! All I have done so far is no more alcohol, and I’m slowly starting to change my diet as though I was pregnant already – so it’s easier when I get my BFP! I eat mostly organic already (lots of fruits and veggies, etc), but I don’t avoid gluten or diary. One thing I am struggling with is…[Read more]

  • Curious – are you ladies already taking prenatal vitamins? I try to, but I forget often.

  • holz – Congrats on the BFP!!!

  • Yeah, the US has a terrible maternity leave structure. I am not sure if it varies by state or not, but some things do fall under the employers discretion but from what I know, most employers only allow the minimum required by law. I had 8 weeks off after the birth of my DD. I had the extra 2 weeks due to having had a c/s. Being away from her 8+…[Read more]

    sher-baby – An interview already?! That was quick and a sign of good things to come! Good luck!! Let us know how it goes. 😉

    MrsBugs – since before I ever met my DH, I always envisioned 3 kids. Funny enough, so did he. And after we met we shared that with each other and we both (even then) felt that it would be GIRL, BOY, GIRL. And yes, our first was a girl.. So now, we really have high hopes for a boy. I guess we’ll see. As for a third… that may not be in the cards.…[Read more]

    sher-baby – are you in the FB group for April 2015 mommies?

  • Crummie replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 8 months ago

    mrsbugs – maybe you had a dud test? 15 min later seems a bit too late to read results. Most say do not read after 10 minutes, don’t they? I’d get a new test and retake!

    sher-baby – I did retest this morning! You called it! It was darker so I am pretty sure it’s a clear cut positive. I wasn’t supposed to test until 8/19 so…. I think I have 1…[Read more]

    Bgsoobyluver – the spotting might be implantation? Not sure if ovulation causes spotting. I’m assuming if your AF is due around the 27th and your cycles are normally 36-40 days, your LMP was around 7/10… if so, good chance you ovulated last week when you had your Uh-Oh moment!! Implantation usually occurs about 9dpo, which would be for you right…[Read more]

    Just got my rx prenatals with low iron. I forgot how the OTC stuff made me erm… not very regular. Sorry if that’s TMI. Hopefully now things will be better! 🙂

  • Crummie replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 8 months ago

    Thanks sher-baby. Due date is 4/23! Currently 4-5 weeks. Sooo excited! I really, really, REALLY hope all you ladies get your BFP soon too!!

    I tested this morning and got a faint BFP!!!

  • Crummie replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 8 months ago

    I’m starting to get really anxious and want to take a pregnancy test. Not sure if it’s too soon. My periods are very irregular. I tracked my last 3 through the myDays app and according to WebMD, my cycles are about 33 days. That would mean that I ovulated around 8/3-8/7 (although, I had symptoms of ovulation several days prior to that… then on…[Read more]
