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.
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
Thanks so much for telling me this! I'm expecting AF this time around Aug 27. I threw up on the way home one day last week, and I've felt "seasick" sometimes. My boobs feel... INJURED. (Partly because my friend's son fell on my chest and slammed his hand into me lol) but just different than usual before my period. And I've been weepy and a bit more mood swingy than my normal pms.
But who knows. The body does weird things. My husband and I have been trying since December, so it sure would be nice!
Baby dust to all you ladies!! And congratulations!!!!!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
I got "wondfo" brand test strips on Amazon - I got 50 of them! They are very inexpensive. I got the same brand of HPT's also, and they offer combo-packs so you don't have to buy them separately. I also got more expensive name-brand HPT's for a second opinion if I ever have an iffy positive and wanna make sure...
I guess this is CD 10.for me. I used the OPK when I got home from work tonight and there was a very faint positive line, so I'm going to keep testing every night after work and see how it progresses. I'm starting to get excited about being able to tell when I actually have a chance at getting pregnant! ::crosses fingers::
Thanks for the luck and baby dust. Back at ya! I'm also very glad to read your good news recently about your financial situation. I hope things just keep getting better for you! 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
So, I've been reading online and it turns out that a lot of women don't get a positive test result on a HPT even 5 months into pregnancy... This really has me thinking, since AF has only been more than 2 days late ONCE in my life, when I was 19 and having an intensely stressful time. So who knows? Maybe I am pregnant and the hormone just isn't showing up?? Obviously it happens, so why not me??View Thread
AF was supposed to come March 20, but now it's March 24. I've had 2 BFN's and still no AF. She's never late for me! I feel like my insides are EVIL and conspiring against me. What a mean trick! I feel like I'm coming down with a cold, so maybe that's why it's late. Oh well, I've got more time. View Thread
AF didn't come today!!! I've had the same PMS symptoms I usually have, and it's late by a day or two sometimes. But my fingers are crossed!!! I'm gonna wait 2 days to test. I have some HPT's in the mail on the way to me. View Thread
Waiting sucks really bad. I've been totally exhausted at work the last few days, but OF COURSE.... that could be (and probably is) just PMS. I've been limiting my coffee to just one cup a day lately to help boost my chances by being healthier (eating better, taking vitamins, etc.) so that could also be why I'm so sleepy all the time. I'm trying not to get my hopes up that it will happen this month. It's nice to be able to connect with other women going through the same thing, though.View Thread
