• one last quick note, tiffyy–dh and I were never sexually active until we married and I have endometriosis so we thought that it might take me a while to get preg. So we decided to start trying 6 months after marriage–and wound up preggo the same month we tried! So, yeah, I totally know what you mean about not feeling ready. haha! It’ll be…[Read more]

  • Tested at 5:15 a.m. and BFP! I won’t be on here much today, but I’ll try to post a picture. 🙂 I’ve only taken one test so far so hopefully I don’t retest and get BFN.
    SAZAUK, I’m sorry that you got BFN. 🙁 I’m sure it will happen! Keep your hopes up!
    ABBOTTBABY, a line is a line is a line. 🙂 Sometimes the hcg levels just rise slower in some…[Read more]

    I’m gonna take the test tomorrow….pretty nervous about it. I know I shouldn’t be–God always brings the ‘right’ babies at the right time. If I would’ve conceived earlier than I did with my other two, I would’ve had two entirely different children now. 🙂

    By the way, anyone else out there TTC who has a few minor symptoms but just doesn’t (or didn’t) FEEL pregnant? (Not really physically, but got the ‘feeling’ of being preggers.)

    Brody’s mommy:
    I don’t know about really bad cramping…are you talking about actual stomach cramping or cramping like you’d get with your AF? I always had some light cramping in early pregnancy, but nothing I would classify as bad or heavy cramping. If you’re actually talking about the stomach area, I noticed yesterday that I had some intestinal…[Read more]

    shellb–I’ve been having the weird dreams, too! And I rarely ever have dreams that I can remember….odd….

  • slh1980 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    sorry to have like a million questions but I can’t remember from my first two pregs…If I’m preg, should I be feeling the achy crampy feeling yet? I had it earlier around supposed implantation (which seemed a little early) but not much since then.

    mamacas26:
    Thanks! I was meaning that I DON’T have the preg. ‘feeling’….I’ve had a few physical symptoms (including my morning coffee smelling strongly of cigarettes this morning…in a nonsmoking home. lol!), but almost feel afraid to even take the preg. test. So I don’t know if maybe I don’t want to tempt myself into believing that I…[Read more]

    Carrie, I’m with you….well, my AF was due tomorrow but I was ready for it to hurry and be here and get over with! 🙂 I started spotting today…wasn’t supposed to even begin spotting until tomorrow. So this is weird for me.

    Noel, Thanks! I actually didn’t have any trouble conceiving both of my babies. My big secret is that my husband and I are not ‘supposed’ to be TTC right now because we have certain family members who would be thoroughly annoyed that we are actually trying for another one when the economy is bad! Mostly my DH parents….they’re very money…[Read more]

  • slh1980 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    1stnoel–I hear you. We’re not actually TTC, but are hoping it kind of happens on its own. 🙂 The economy is so bad right now that it’s hard for anyone to really afford another baby! But they are definite blessings! We figure God will bless us with another one if he sees we can financially handle it. 🙂 Still, it doesn’t make my ordeal this month…[Read more]

    princess: I just picked up a two pack of Sound Body tests from Big Lots. I can let you know, but then by that time, your TWW would probably be over with. (I don’t ovulate for another week or so!) I’ve heard good things about the accuracy, though, and Big Lots sells early result ones too! A 2-PACK FOR $3!!! Early Results for that price? It would be…[Read more]

    hey everyone!! 🙂 Any new bfp’s out there?
    I was wondering if anyone else experiences any days of light cramping/twinges throughout their entire cycle? I do get the ovulation cramping (mittelschmerz) but from O until AF I also have the twinges off and on. Is this normal?? Or could it be that the egg tries to implant and for some reason can’t? If…[Read more]

    LaChica, I read somewhere that sometimes when women want to be pregnant enough, they can stress their bodies into an early period. 🙁 Stinks, huh.

    Arctic, nope it’s not wrong. Have you had any babies before? With my son I had an epidural, even though I’d wanted to go natural. But I’d had contractions for two full days (every 7 minutes) prior to…[Read more]

  • slh1980 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    Thanks, mj–it’s not my period, either, since I’m not due until late this month and I haven’t been on the pill for probably 5 years. 🙂

  • slh1980 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    I’m SO going to nap! I’ve got dishes to wash and a house to clean, but I’m so tired and my back hurts! Bed, here I come!! See you gals later! Thanks for the advice, tiffyy!

  • slh1980 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    how far along were you when you m/c?

  • slh1980 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    thats ok, tiffyy–I don’t think I’m having a m/c since I just did a hpt a few days ago and bfn! It’s just very weird…

  • slh1980 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    Ok, girls–has anyone heard of having a really bad lower backache before you even know if you’re preggo or not?? Mine has been killing me for the past several days and I haven’t done anything out of the ordinary. Just wondering!

  • slh1980 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    hello to everyone! Congrats to any BFP’s I’ve missed! Just a quick note to say that if you have a Big Lots in your area, CHECK THEM OUT ASAP! I was in there shopping today and saw some EPT Certainty tests (yes, those are the digital ones) — there were 3 in a box for $2.50. I am totally not making it up. I was super tempted to just buy out the…[Read more]
