hi glong88 and laura109! thanks for your input. I apologize i did not reply or update yesterday. It was a very busy day and we weren't home most of it.
glong88-i use opks each month too. this month i ovulated a bit later than i normally do so when i kept getting empty circles during the time my chart said i was suppose to be fertile i was getting worried! I understand the feeling. keep testing...im sure you will get your positive opk soon! good luck!
laura109-i understand what you are feeling. the first trimester isn't fun for most of us i believe. and toddlers are tough to deal with when you are feeling miserable. do you have anyone that could come help you during that time? Fortunately the first trimester troubles don't last nearly as long as toddler troubles and you get that extra boost of energy in your second trimester. I knew since i was a child myself that i wanted to have more than one baby. so whenever im feeling anxious about another baby in the house now i think back on how i was an only child and id really prefer that not to be the case for my daughter. plus we are strong women right?! we can handle ANYTHING after we had to give birth...lol. Do what you feel is right. good luck!
As for updates on me-yesterday all i had was still period like cramps. my symptoms usually get worse..or maybe a better word would be more noticeable during the evening hours. today i'm feeling ok. which kind of worries me. i'm dreading testing yet i can't wait to...i'm very afraid of seeing another negative test. its such an emotional bomb of agony. i'm always surprised at how eager and excited i am again to try the next month after getting disappointed so many times. my symptoms might show up later in the day. i'll check back then. have a good day everyone!
Hi slammerkin! Welcome to that chat. I wish you luck next month! Is this your first month trying since your daughter? How exciting! Today marks 9 dpo and I gave in and tested and got a I am not surprised but still disappointed. I am probably out this month. I know that sounds early but I am pretty sure that's the case. Must muster up the energy to try try try again next month. Gonna make a doc app just to make sure everything is running as smoothly as I think it is. I shall keep checking back with you all and continue with my own ttc journey.
Hi, I read through all your posts and wanted to join in on the convo, made an account just to comment! I'm also TTC #2, I had my daughter when I was 16, she wasn't planned and I was under the impression I couldn't ovulate because of what doctors told me about my irregular cycles. So she was a miracle to me. Since then I've been told by the best obgyn I've ever had, that doctors are wrong a lot. She says she has many patients with irregular cycles and even PCOS and they still have kids, so she gave me faith! I'm 20 now, and my cycles are regular (first time having cycles since before my daughter, was on depo and BC pills), been trying for 5 months, just now starting to track my cervical position, mucus, and temp. Wishing all of you the best in your journeys!!! Much baby dust!!!
hi StarHaze! welcome! thank you for sharing your story...i love hearing when our bodies can defy bad news. it sounds like you are in a much better position now ttc...what with having a regular cycle and all. Although i do have to mention i have many friends who have irregular cycles and pcos who have kids and had no trouble conceiving so even though i am not a doctor i agree with your new obgyn! have you tried opks? i use them even though i have a regular cycle too. they just give me peace of mind and to know when to really really focus on bd-ing. temping is good too but i suggest adding an opk too because with temping you'll only know you ovulated after your temp change...with opk you'll know before you ovulate so you can plan accordingly and not miss anything i wish you much luck! and keep us all informed!
slammerkin-that's wonderful! you might be surprised...every baby is different. the next one could be total opposite personality. that's what everyone is telling me. my daughter is so easy going...slept through night starting second night we brought her home. sleeps until 9 or later every morning. almost never cries. now everyone tells me watch out for number 2!!! i take it with a grain of salt. you never really know. and plus i always think it will be fun no matter what the outcome though because once they grow up...we are going to miss what they did no matter how troublesome or good they were and wish we could go back. enjoy every second of everything! good luck to you! keep us informed!
HI all!! I would love to join the group! I have a 1 year old son and will be TTC #2 in March!! I know I'm a bit early to joining a group but I am so ready and want to be engaged with other women who are TTC as well! My next AF should be here Feb 2nd, then I get my Mirena IUD removed Marvh 1st and will hopefully get a withdrawal bleed or my next period right after that so hopefully two more cycles and I can start symptom spotting with you all!
My son was a surprise so I am slightly excited/ slightly nervous to actually try! Sending all of you ladies lots of baby dust!!
hi BSelck24! you are of course welcome to join! Glad to have you with us on our ttc journeys. I hope we can be of some help.
AF due in 2 days for me and I have been really emotional. Crying over everything. Just wish i could fast forward through this week and get back to trying again. was really hoping this was our month but ugh. just don't understand how i could conceive so easily the first time and now im stuck. my obgyn was telling me how fertile i must be to have conceived so quick and now im like where's that perfect fertility now huh? so frustrated sorry...venting. how is everyone else doing?
Shaele thank you for the welcome!! Have you come off some sort of birth control since your daughter? Couldn't remember if you said you did! And I know that can make baby #2 take a bit longer -
I too am slightly nervous to be pregnant and nauseous with now having a baby to keep up with/hold/ and give energy to!
How many kids are you all wanting? My next may be my last as my husband has two daughters from a previous marriage (who I love!) but for him that would be 4 kids total and he's a bit older than me and doesn't want to be "too old"
I told him, for guys who cares how old you are! Us women are the ones with the time clock who are limited as to when we can have children! Men can have them their whole lives!!
Hey all. I had my positive on ovulation sticks yesterday so I ovulated a little later than normal. Hopefully get to bed tonight and catch the little eggy! I'm so excited to fall pregnant I just cannot wait
