Hi ladies. I like to jump on the TTC buddy train. I've been scouring threads on the site in late night google frenzies for a long time now, but am a newbie member.

I'm 24 years old, have a 3 year old DS, and we have been TTC #2 for 13 cycles now. I'm pretty irregular and have been keeping track of my cycle dates, but have just aggressively starting charting and temping recently. I'm thinking of trying vitex and maybe preseed since I'm not seeing results au naturale at this point.

My boyfriend and I have been together 9 years (since high school), living together 6, and I usually refer to him as hubby or DH. We did not prevent for 5 years before conceiving our little guy, and although I hate to say it I'm honestly not that surprised we are struggling a bit for #2.

Like Rainbow, I am hoping maybe I'll get an October BFP.

Also, I'd LOVE to have a baby girl, since I have a little boy and I'd like a chance to play with pretty bows and have tea parties since I already do cars and bugs and trains and mud. No matter what thought, I'll be ecstatic to have a little sweetie in my arms and would love a second little boy to pieces.

As for dreaming, I CONSTANTLY dream of being pregnant, feeling a baby move in my tummy and often of a dark haired little girl. I know it's my hearts desires manifesting in my dreams. Lately though the baby dreams have given way to some REALLY CRAZY dreams like climbing through sewers under town and coming out in the locker room of an indoor city pool. That's not even the weirdest, I think my brain is telling me it needs a break from reality.

Hope we can all be buddies and support for eachother and just shoot the breeze, I'm absolutely a motor-mouth. Baby dust to all.

Hi and welcome!

Keeping my fingers crossed for our October bfps and that you concieve a little girl

I use to have pregnancy dreams like every night. They were always of twins boys or just one boy and of breast feeding. I haven't had any in a while tho. Like you I always fantasize about being pregnant . I always wonder what symptoms Iwill get, how big I'll get , will my belly button pop , just all that. And my labor experience and what my baby will look like and if I'll have twins. The list goes on and on lol. I can't wait to announce a bfp and I'm looking fwd to us all conceiving soon

Thanks, maybe we'll get our BFP's close together and can be preggo buddies too! Fingers X'd!

I absolutely fantasize about pregnancy and a new baby to a level that my DH would probably call disturbing if he knew the extent of it. It's all the wishing and hoping and excitement of the possibilities.

Also, with DS at my very first prenatal appointment the doc noticed his umbillical area didnt look quite right and we had an ultrasound and appointment with a specialist right away. We found out at 13 weeks that he had Gastroschisis (his abdominal wall didnt form correctly and his bowels were outside of the body cavity). I was high risk the entire pregnancy, he was born via very scary emergency c-section 6 weeks early and then spent 54 days in the NICU. He was transferred to a different hospital than me directly after birth for surgery and I didnt get to hold him until he was 7 days old. He had to be fed through an IV because he couldnt digest and then went on a special partially pre-digest formula once he was healed up and I never got to even consider breastfeeding him. So, I spend a lot of time thinking about what it would be like to have a less stressfull pregnancy, possibly a vbac or at least a more routine c-section and the chance to try and breastfeed. Not that my first son's birth and early life were special or amazing, but sometimes I feel like I was so anxious and things were so crazy that I really didn't get to enjoy it the way I would have loved too.

So, anyway, after my incredibly long-winded post. I hope October might be the month for our BFPS. Baby Dust to all!!

Haha me too. Sometimes I look in the mirror and try to imagine me with a bump lol. And omg that sounds super scary! Im sorry that you had to experience that but I'm glad u guys are ok now. I hope I have a mom stressful pregnancy because just like you I want to be able to enjoy every single aspect of my pregnancy , symptoms and all. I would love a vaginal birth. The thought of c-section makes my stomach turn lol. No clue why. I hope we see some positives soon

Honestly, the c-section recovery wasn't nearly as bad as I expected. I was up and walking around my hospital room a little bit the next day and walking around the NICU unit the day I was discharged just 2 days post-op, although I wasn't back to my normal mobility for a week or 2. I was lucky and my incision healed really well (I was GLUED instead of stapled, which surprised me). If I can't have a VBAC it won't be terrible, I just always hoped for vaginal and know that when we have our next it would be so much easier to care for a newborn AND a young son without having to heal from surgery, plus I'd LOVE to try breastfeeding in the delivery room.

The worst part for me was the fact that because it was so urgent and a crazyt emergency scenario I had to be put completely to sleep rather than just having a spinal, and anesthesia ALWAYS make me weepy and super-foggy when I wake up.

So, I'm home alone right now; the guy isn't home from work yet, but I'm kinda FREAKING OUT so here I am I seriously wish I could be more calm during this whole process and not analyze every little thing my body does...

So, I'll preface this with a warning that some may consider the following to be TMI! However, if you read as many posts on this forum as I do then you're probably used to talk like this!

I'm currently only 5dpo right now and I have so far managed to be pretty mellow. I have told myself not to even consider taking a PT until next Tuesday! But then... (and here's the TMI part) I just went to the bathroom and there was a couple spots of blood when I wiped. To make sure my eyes were not playing tricks of me, I got a clean sheet, wiped again, and sure enough, there was about a nickle-sized spot of blood. Then nothing. NEVER, in the 17 years I've been getting my period have I had that much blood so early before AF (AF is not scheduled to arrive until September 20th and I am extremely regular). So, of course the first thing I did was jump on Google and search for "5dpo bleeding", "implantation bleeding" etc... and pretty much started to drive myself crazy. So, I had to stop the Googling and here I am. TRYING REALLY HARD NOT TO GET MY HOPES UP, but that is easier said than done, especially when that is such an EXTREMELY unusual symptom for me. I know 5dpo is typically early for IB. SIGH. OK, thanks for letting me vent. I think I'm going to take my dog for a walk in an attempt to get my mind off things....

Hope things are going well for you ladies!

Wait, I lied, I'm 6dpo. MY BRAIN! Seriously, I hate how manic TTC has made me. Interested to see what my temps/chart looks like when it's time for me to temp again, up until this morning it has looked pretty normal (temps still above coverline). OK, really leaving now!

Thats good that you recovered well! I always hear of the stories that are kinda bad and leave you feeling kinda sick to the stomach. And i agree that a vaginal delivery would make it way easier for you already having a young toddler. But if i have a c section i hope its as great as yours. And wow! Never heard of being glued before? Im so curious on how that would look after the op and healing process! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!! @pacificlin thats crazy! I hope its implantation bleeding! Definitely sounds like it to me! lol i always say that. Like i try not to get my hopes up ahigh and i try not to over analyze things but i always do. I hope u get your bfp. I hope this is your bfp! babydust to you all!
