    @esposabella~EXACTLY, it certainly wouldn’t make me NOT want my baby, especially after carrying it for 9 months 🙂

    Hello everyone! I am not new to this site. I have been on for a few years. I have 3 children (20yrs, 18yrs and 3 yrs). My husband and I had a miscarriage last June. We found out at my 12 week scan that the baby stopped growing at 8 1/2 weeks. I’ll be 40 in May and we are back to TTC again this month. We just spent some time away and enjoyed every moment! Hopefully we’ll get lucky..we were away druing the week I ovulated. It’s nice to be back in the ‘game’ again! Baby dust to all TTC! and Congrats on any BFP’s! And I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you!

    @ babymama2!…thanks for the advice. I am sure that I want another one but my husbands argument is that he is not sure how to handle another. He has been a father to babies since the age of 19 and feels like he cannot give anymore. He worries on how he will provide for us as he is getting up in age (as I am too:) but I know in my heart that we will love another as much as the 2 we have together and as much as the other 2 he has. Understandably a huge decision in life is to bring another child into this world and I always worry about who would take care of them in my unfortunate passing but to not have another wonderful gift because of the ‘fear’ factor I do not find is a ligitimate reason…does that make sense?

    I guess I haven’t completely made up my mind whether to seriously ‘try’ or not. However, after my healing from my D&C, I have been in the mood for sex. I’m not sure if I am ovulating already, but this is typically how I feel around that time. I have taken my chances and figure if it happens, it happens.

    Question of the day: Should I start counting my new cycle from the day spot showed up or the day it turned red and flow began? I’ve had differing opinions. Spot was for about two days before flow. If I start counting from when it became heavy I would be on CD 4. If I count from spot, I am on CD 6

    Okay gals, af left and sex drive is here! Bd last night and craving more. However, I want to make sure DH functions when the smiley comes! So, aloha…i should wait until after smiley to BD? And the testing with Clearblue should be done in the afternoon, rather than the morning, since that is when the surge will likely occur? Should I test just once a day? I bought the clearblue advanced this time with the ‘frantic’ smiley. I’m hoping for successful bd with the right timing. It is ‘tricky,’ to say the least, with all factors considered in my situation.

    Well, seem to have made it through Thanksgiving and life on the home front is a mixed bag of assorted positives and negatives. My 20 year old son was able to come home from his military training. He will be back again in December as well. All my kids were home for dinner, although I also had to deal with my dysfunctional sister and her teenagers which was not easy. (very messed up person) It distracted me from my babies! So, not related, but I now have clogged kitchen drains and yesterday worked like a mad woman to find something that would fix it. I dumped some hydrocholoric acid down at bedtime last night (yeah…not the ideal) but the big guns had to come out. I don’t have the money to pay a plummer! And, this morning it’s still not working! On a pregnancy note, I still have heard nothing in regards to my final CVS test, likely due to the holiday week. I will call on Monday for more information and to set up the next plan….feel like the ball has been dropped here and not liking it. I am now 14 weeks. Baby dust to all!!!

    I hope you ladies had a great day. Well Dr aren’t sure yet whats going on. The MRI show old mini strokes and the found he has damage due to parasites that ome from eating under cook beef or pork while he was in Mexico. Since he hasn’t been home for many years the likely hood of them being alive is almost none. But they damage the brain too. So with the damage from dementia and that his brain doesn’t look great. So still waiting on more specialists to see if they know why he is out of it and if there is anything that can be done.

    I actually mentioned that to the u/s tech. The only thing is that I got a bfp at 10dpo, so it couldn’t have been much later.

    Hi ladies, in just checking in. I will be 11 weeks tomorrow and have my first midwife app on the 1st. I have opted not to do the NT scan and will only be doing the anatomy/gender scan at around 18 weeks. As for heart palpitations I have had 2 episodes already this pregnancy. I only ever had it in the third trimester with my other pregnancies so it did freak me out a little.

    Hello gals! Wow, some of you are getting very close to delivering! Time sure flies. I am cd1 today, which isn’t surprising since I haven’t ‘tried’ in a few months. I may get the opk out this month if I remember to. Mainly I have been trying to lose this weight. Spring finally arrived, so I’ve also been very busy getting things done around here. Plus, we bought a motorhome over Easter weekend, and a play set for the kids, then just got a trailer a couple of days ago to pull our gear behind the motorhome. We plan to do some trips this summer, which will be fun.
