I just had my mirena removed on October 5th because we are ttc for a third child. I used an ovulation predictor kit which told me that I was positive for ovulation on the 7th. The ovulation test on the 8th and 9th has very faint positive results. We had intercourse on the 9th. How likely is it that I was ovulating and I could be pregnant????View Thread

Hey All! I figured I would post this here too. Maybe some of you are working on a 3rd child and can help me with how you dealt with the 2nd. Looking for a little advice or to vent not sure what lol! I really want to start trying for a second baby in the fall and I along with my DH have some fears! The biggest is can we afford another child??? How do you mommies do it with a second child to feed, cloth and put in daycare? The other biggie is my DS is extremely attached to me. He doesn't like when I pay attention to other children or hold another baby. Plus I do everything with him and for him and I know he loves me very much cause he constantly gives me hugs my fear is how do I divide me attention and love so that DS won't feel neglected and resent a new baby? Also my son is 15 months right now we wouldn't start trying for a couple more months. Is it easier or harder when they are close in age?View Thread
I think we all need a little pick-me-up at this point in our TTC roller coasters.
Let's all list one thing, or a hundred things, that we're excited to do once we have our long-awaited baby boy or girl.
Keep it positive! You get what you give!
When we have our baby, I want to go to the zoo. I want to go on walks with the stroller, just us. I want to build forts. I want to visit their great grandparents and take pictures of them together. I want to admire my husband while he cares for our child. I want to teach him/her to be wise, and honest, and brave.
Write whatever you want, because this is what these things are for, right? So you don't have to keep all those feelings inside. You can share them with people who know JUST HOW YOU FEEL.
Hello all! I am 34 years old and have always had a very regular period, normal cycle, I have never missed a period (always run 28 or 29 days). My husband and I stopped using birth control 2 months ago. My last period started on 7/17. I am now several days late. I took a test on Monday evening, one Thursday, and another test this morning, all negative.
Someone mentioned that maybe I didn't ovulate... which would be a major bummer on our 1st official month trying and for trying to calculate fertility this month.
Could it be that I am pregnant even with 3 negative tests?
If I am not, how do I figure out my ovulation cycle this month?

I was reading this forum and decided I should share my story as well. I had mirena before. I only had it in for a month and was having such terrible mood swings I decided to ditch it. I got pregnant with my son a week later. We decided that I should get one again and just tough it out this time. I have had mirena for just over a year. About six months in I started getting cramps (I have never really had cramps or pregnancy symptoms before (sry ladies!)) I thought it must just be normal and mother nature is finally catching up to me. My cramping started getting worse and I began to think it was maybe the mirena. I was hoping it was hormones, although I had a pretty strong feeling it was more than that. I started doing more research and read up on symptoms and side effects. I called my doctor and spoke to her nurse. The nurse said it sounded normal and to go to the er if I am in unbelievable pain, but I am probably fine (or course). So a year into it I started getting even moodier, and the cramps became a 24/7 ache. Another month and intercourse began hurting. (silly me trying to convince myself I just needed to pee or something). I knew deep down there was something terrible wrong. Talking with my dh we decided to have another baby (our son is now one and a half). We set the appointment and went to see the doc. we dtd the night before (one last time ). My doctor had a hard time getting it out, and it was very painful. My doc even had to go find forceps with a (better grip). After a very hard tug (and a yell from me) it finally came out, covered in blood. My doc seemed very concerned so I asked her to be straight with me. She said it was the hardest one she has ever had to remove. and that I should have removed it a long time ago. She put in my chart that I was not allowed to ever get one again. She said my body was rejecting it and I had very bad inflamation and swelling. I spoke with her about having another child and she said the swelling will go down rather quickly but to wait a month before trying so everything heals up nicely. I purchased some ovulation tests (gonna try out the kettles method for a girl even though its kinda dumb). I have been testing every other day for two weeks to catch it right before the egg drops. the test always has a faint seccond line. I am so confused. The instructions say if you get a faint line to try again in two to three days. There is always a faint line! I don't think the mirena can cause that reaction.. but I just dont know. I have also been having some pregnancy symptoms. Things taste weird, smells are extra strong, my boobs are hurting, i am always nautious and tired. I really hope I am pregnant allready. (we have not dtd since the night before removal a week ago because of cramping and spotting still.). does anyone know if pregnancy will give you a faint line on an ovulation test? on a side note, i am starting to feel the "mirena crash in terms of my mood". but my complexion is clearing up and the cramps are going away. after four months of constant increasing cramps and terrible acne, i am so happy!.View Thread
It I stare at it a little longer will the second line just magically appear??
I'm sure we've all been there. I'm just a little frustrated. At this point the doctor and nurses just keeping saying that everything looks fine and that my pain and swelling are normal, and it's time to send the husband in.View Thread
It seems like AF started last night, but there's not much going on down there. I took a HPT yesterday morning because it's about 10 days late, but it said negative. Then last night there was a little spotting, but now there's none except when I go to the bathroom... Is my cycle just wacky, or could this be it?? If it doesn't seem to pick up, I'll test again in the morning. I'm so excited and nervous, but trying not to jinx it! Has anyone else been through this?View Thread
Hello, Im 27 and have been married for a year now. I have a 6 year old son and right after giving birth I decided to get the mirena instead of other methods because it did not require remembering and frequent visits to the doctor. It was said that it may take up to a year before you are fertile again so I had it removed a year before my wedding date. Now my anniversary has past (July 5) and I still have not been able to get pregnant. Can anyone give me some suggestions? Has any of the drugs worked for you?View Thread
I got my Mirena IUD removed June 8 after having it for a year and a half. I had my period a few weeks after it was removed and have now completed my first cycle with no bfp. My question for y'all is how many of you also got your IUD removed in June and how are things going for you? I would love to get a bfp sooner rather than later but after reading all of the posts about early bfps and MCs are bothering me. Just looking for some others in the same boat and a little piece of mind.View Thread

Looking for support. I had my IUD taken out about 5 months ago and I have had 3 periods. I have sex quite often and we are trying for another baby. I have twin boys that are 6 y/o. I am nervous that something is wrong. I am trying to be patient, perhaps I have myself worked up too much. Any tips??View Thread
Hi ladies! I am now on CD16! This cycle and last cycle were 30 days apart, when before it was an average of 26-27 days. So, according to my fertility friend app & period app, O-day is the 24th. I started temping on CD 10 (I know it was late, but I was sick & had fevers off an on for over a week there & just didn't chart) and it was high, then had a dip on CD 13, and it's been rising ever since. I've had EWCM for like 5 days now-which is a really long time for me. I don't know if it's normal to have it for 5 days, but for me, it's a really long time. AND I had what I thought was a positive OPK on CD12. I say that because it was progressively getting darker a few days before CD 12, then on CD12 it was dark, but not as dark as the test line. Maybe a shade or 2 lighter, then the next 3 days it was stark white. Now, yesterday I was getting color on my OPKs again. (I decided to keep taking them after the stark white ones because I just wanted to be sure that was it). It was a really light color yesterday then today it looks as dark as it was on CD 12 where I thought it was a positive. I have a feeling tomorrow it will be probably as dark or darker than the control line. My chart on fertility friend hasn't detected an ovulation day yet, so I'm assuming that the 1st "positive" was not really a positive? But I'm just wondering why I'm having 2 "rounds" of progressively darker results? Anyone experience this before?? And no I'm not pregnant, because I did take an HPT after seeing this second round of OPKs. I'm just at a loss for this cycle because I lost all of my information on my cycles that were on my apps on my phone. I had to get a new phone, and I thought all that information would be transferred but it wasn't, so now I feel lost with this cycle because I have nothing to look back on. Plus it was so off from my last one.View Thread
I'm try not to stress out here or get my hopes up either but I am now 4 days late for AF and on CD 30 and in the 3 years I've been tracking, not charting (have been doing that for 6 months), and this is the late I've gone. I want to test but I have read many different articles about when to test. Some say you can test as soon as you are 1 day late and others say to wait until you're at least 10 days late. And also seems as soon as I want to test or buy as test AF shows up. Right now have no signs of her showing up, but don't really feel pregnant either. It's weird really. I had no PMS symptoms until the night before AF was due and now my symptoms have seem to have died down. My breasts are achy and very sensitive, hugely fatigued, mild nausea (on & off) and moody. So I don't know what my body it telling me. Help!View Thread
Ok, yes, I'm pimping myself out. I have a facebook profile that I hope some of you click on & add me. This is not my personal FB, it is a TTC/mommy FB profile, but I do share my personal life on it. I just don't have friends/family on it. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003551321936
And a YouTube channel, but I will not share that on here at this time. Lol. I don't have much on it yet.
I'm just reaching out in this community & making friends. I remember 1st coming on here in October & there's a handful of you (most who have gotten BFPs since) that I wouldn't mind keeping in touch with. I really do feel like I made some sort of friendship on here with some of you.
That is all! Good luck & baby dust to everyone!! View Thread
Hi everyone, we've been ttc for well over 7months and things don't seem to be working. Some months I ovulate earlier than normal, some months not at all, or later. Have also been reading all the good news on this board and we are considering trying with Clomid. all thou am thinking since my doctor said I have a small ovarian cyst, from the disclosure of X-ray carried out. Am worried it might be the reason why things are the way they are. Last month's period was on the 9th, and we started off well 7days after and a few more days after O. Now am cramping and I spotted a bit yesterday, thinking now and feeling lost with the whole situation. Any suggestions and advice (welcomed) thank you allView Thread
My husband and i recently decided to start trying to conceive. I stopped taking my birth control after the 1st week of the pack.(in hindsight i realize that was dumb) I had some bleeding for about 4 days which was light compared to my regular periods. According to my charting, my period was supposed to show up on May 28th. Its now June 1st and i still haven't gotten my period.(before birth control my periods had always been regular) I took several pregnancy tests all of which have been negative.
My question is, Have i been going about this all wrong? Do i count that light bleeding as my period?( I already had my period last month April 30th-May 5th) Do i starting counting from the last day i took the pill? Please help!View Thread
AF is just ending for me. When should I start using these tests? I'm excited to see if it boosts my chances how I think it will! When should we BD once I see a positive result? I know some of you gals are using these. Help me out! View Thread
May 3 - cd1 May 10 - cd8 - dh and I BD'd May 13 - cd11 (about 2:30am so could be counted as cd12) - dh and I BD'd May 16 - cd14 - Tender Breasts and mild cramping
Since my breasts were tender on cd14, I'm not sure if I ovulated a day or two before then or on that day.
May 17-25 - cd 15-23 - Breast Tenderness and mild cramping May 26-27 - cd24-24 - Breast Tenderness and cramping more pronounced. Took dollar store hpt and after a few minutes there was a 2nd line that was so faint you would think your eyes are playing tricks on you or you would think that line automatically shows up that faint simply because it got wet.
AF isn't due until June 3, so it is super early to test, but since it's about 11-12 dpo, I figured I'd take the chance.
I'll take another one on Wednesday morning or later in the week if I can help it.View Thread
I took my last birth control pill on April 28th. Had been on them for many years (I'm 26). I had skipped a month of them in March (stupid I know). On the evening of May 7th I got a positive (smiley face) on a home ovulation predicition test. I had sex May 5, 6, 7, 9,10... so basically all around when I should have ovulated. According to my estimates I figured I'd start my period May 19 or 20. And I did... May 19th. It has been heavy and exactly like it was before I started BC control pills. Is it possible my body prepared to ovulate (hence positive ovulation test) but didn't? I'm just so surprised I am not pregnant based on that positive ovulation test and the fact that I had intercourse often during that time. Anyone with similar issues? Or maybe its because I just got off of bc pills? Thanks for any input View Thread

So my last period was April 26-May 1... my periods are always normal and routine. I have never had spotting between periods before or any other issues. My boyfriend and I are TTC at this time and we've had sex May 2,4,6,7,10-14,16-18. The spotting started on the 6th and has still continued. it's bright red and occasionally there are clots. The only time I see the blood is after I wipe. Other than that it doesn't touch my underwear. Took a HPT on the 12 it was negative. Just wanting to know what this could be? Also, I am not On BC and haven't been for 2 years. Also I have had some very mild cramping that comes and goes. Almost like menstral cramps. Anyone have a clue of what's going on? Could I be pregnant?View Thread
AF came 5/15 after going off my pill last Wednesday. I'm tracking on an app called My Days and just by adding it to my Google Calendar. Anyone else on CD1 (on Tuesday) and want to chat? I'm hoping to get pregnant in the next three months or so after miscarrying on Jan 13th.
This is now my 6 cycle of trying. I'm not the most emotional person but each month is quite the rollercoaster of emotions. I get pretty down when af comes along and then
I usually stay optimistic during the 2ww. I've got 8 more days of waiting.
I went off my birth control pills in April. I got my period on April 4 and it lasted until April 8 or April 9. The last day of my last sugar pill of the last pack was April 7. So as of April 8 I have not been taking any birth control. I used an application on my phone called Pink Pad to track my periods and fertility days. My husband and I had sex on April 18 which was 1 day before my ovulation day, April 19. This was according to the app I had on my phone. I knew that going off the pill was going to cause some changes in things. My app said that my next period would start May 3. I didn't get my period May 3, May 4. or May 5. Even at 3am on Sunday May 6 I did not have my period yet so I thought maybe I could be pregnant. I also remember having cramps and my feet aching like they usually do right before my period but that all started on Tuesday May 1 and as of May 6 at 3am like I said I had not gotten my period yet. This led me to believe that I may just in fact be pregnant. However, I was extremely disappointed when I woke up at 10:30am Sunday morning May 6 and got my period. So obviously at this point I just figured I was late due to the fact that I just went off the birth control just a short time ago. I was very heavy both Sunday May 6 and Monday May 7 but I was very light Tuesday May 8 and barely had anything today Wednesday May 9. Now again I knew there would be changes in things due to just going off the birth control but I have always had periods that are a minimum of 5 days but mostly up to 7 days while I was on the pill. Going off the pill I figured it would be different but I for sure didn't think it would be shorter if anything I thought it would be longer. I have noticed a few other things like my breasts appearing bigger and being harder and a 8 pound weight gain over just about 1 1/2 months. So bottom line is it possible and I know it is a small chance could I be pregnant even though I got my period? I know they have said some women can still get their period the first month or two of being pregnant. The only thing is what kind of period is it? Since mine was heavy 2 days and extremely light two days would that be a very abnormal period to have and be pregnant. I was extremely devastated after being late for 3 days and then getting my period since I got excited thinking I might be pregnant so I am not sure if I want to go through the whole getting a home pregnancy test and doing it to find out it's negative. Should I just wait and see if I get my next period or what it's like if I do get it instead of taking an at home pregnancy test? I know it may be very far fetched but could I be pregnant with what I have described? Just thought I'd get some opinions first before doing anything. Thank you for reading this and for answering if you do, I greatly appreciate it!View Thread
Ok, ladies! I know hubby & I are taking a break from TTC-ing. We were going to start this month (May) but he is still on unemployment. So it looks like it's not happening this month. He's applying to 4 jobs a week but has yet to hear about anything. He doesn't have much experience with a lot of things, because he's worked for so long doing one thing. He's got excellent experience at what he did do, but it's such a tight market here, it's hard for him to find anything with his experience without a degree.
Anyways, since I'm not on the BCP anymore, my cycles are finally regular! It took awhile, but...my body is finally normal! We aren't trying, but we BD'd at the very beginning of my fertile window. We didn't realize it was my fertile window, or else it wouldn't have happened. Even though we aren't trying, I am taking prenatals just because I stocked up & have a lot. Plus prenatals seem to give me more of what I need normally than what regular multivitamins give. Now AF is 1 day late so far. I can't help but let my mind wander to the "what if I'm pregnant?" I don't want to test. I mean, I do, but I don't want to. It seems like every time I POAS, AF starts literally that same night. Never fails! Lol. It's not the ideal time to get pregnant, but I still want it so SO bad regardless.
I'm thinking of getting a cheapie & testing in the morning, but yet I'm thinking wait a few more days.
What do you ladies think? Test or wait a few days?View Thread
My husband has revealed to me that he feels as though I am MAD at him when I get a negative test. This blew me away, because I don't feel that way at all! I tried to explain to him that I feel disappointed and/or let down, but I in NO WAY blame him for my not being pregnant. If it's meant to be, it will be in its time. I just get impatient and anxious. Anyone else going through this? Sometimes I have no idea what's going on in his head...View Thread
Hi I'm new here and had a quick question that's been bothering me. I started exercising about 2mths ago n just this mth my bf and i are ttc. I was worried if the exercises i'm doing will be a prob with the fertilization and implantion process. The exercises I do are sit-ups, planks, leg lifts, push ups, and i use an elliptical. Can any of these affect the process or is it ok. I read in one of the articles that leg lifts and sit-ups are bad when pregnant so i'm guessing they might be bad when ttc? This will be my first pregnancy so I'm just really nervous and scared. I was diagnosed with PCOS also so I guess that makes me a bit more nervous also.View Thread
