Hi! Can I join you ladies? I have a daughter that is 26 months and we have just started trying for #2. I had a nexplanon implant removed a month ago and was going to wait for first AF until we started really trying. About a week after the removal we had sex and the next day i could feel I was ovulating. Five days later I got cramps and when they lasted more than a week I was really thinking I was pregnant and got really excited. Unfortunately I tested negative on 2 early tests and then i got AF. I was sooo disappointed! Now I am waiting to start OPK testing just to make sure I know when I'm ovulating and give it a go again. I'm dreading TWW though. The last three weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions and we've almost barely started! Our first daughter wasn't planned so I haven't gone through this before. And oh, my husband is the kind that gets stressed easily and wan't everything to happen "naturally" so I'm not keeping him in the loop when it comes to testing just yet. A big reason why I need to vent here

Hi Jenny!! Yes! I think keeping things between us ladies (and giving our husbands a break) is the best thing lol And I totally understand that the craving to become pregnant increases even more once you've already gone through the thought that you were pregnant!! I still have my Mirena IUD in and even I swear I'm pregnant sometimes! lol Glad to have more ladies to chat with and join in the journey to our BFPs!!

CD7 here. I haven't used OPKs. Just temping and tracking CM, but this is also going to be our first month trying, so who knows what I'll do if it doesn't happen quickly.
hey slammerkin i dunno if we had realized this before but you are very close with my cycle. I am on cycle day 7 today. you're ahead of me by only one day. that's pretty neat. maybe we can be tww buddies...depending on when you ovulate lol.

Rose- ok thanks! i was going to say maybe it was a UK thing but i wanted to be sure. sounds good though. I'm going to try the preseed version this time and see what happens. i hope it works for you!

bselck- I'm glad you are here too! I'm glad for all you ladies. I was worried at first making this thread that I wouldn't get many but it has attracted lots of wonderful people which is a real help to me personally as I struggle with each month. Really happy with how it's turning out. We keep getting more every day and speaking of....

Jennys! welcome! sorry you got a negative last time...i know the feeling of getting my hopes up and symptom spotting only to get that bfn in the end. it really is disappointing esp when you feel so sure you're pregnant! i think that's a good idea just to keep dh out of the loop for now. he doesn't need to know exactly everything that's happening with your body...only when his services are needed lol. i think it will probably keep you less stressed if you aren't worrying about if he's getting stressed too. win all around. you are always welcome to vent here! i know i sure do!

Hello Ladies!!!!

I just finish reading every page. Can i join btw?!!! I have a 35 month old (still counting by months it's definitely time to have another one) and me and DH are ready to try again for A November baby!!! My AF just went off On Jan. 23rd so im getting impatient for the next 2-3 wks. so I just calculated based on my regular cycle rhythm. This time around I don't want to be stress out this time with opks and hpt I just want to let it happen and be ok if it doesn't. But it's really hard when all my friends are pregnant and I'm not. me n DH had a hard time conceiving and holding on onto our babies last time So I'm thinking positive this time in hopes that we'll conceive this cycle and pray the baby sticks with us for the long run!!
Good luck ladies!!!

Thanks Bselck24 for inviting me here!! Seems like a bunch of sweet mommies!!!

P.s: 2 1/2 years back I would never thought I would be posting in this thread as TTC #2!! Wow how times fly and Great God is!!!

Jennys and BSelck - I agree with not involving DH in all the nitty-gritty, at least most of the time at the start. It's interesting to us as women, but I think the men's eyes just kind of glaze over, lol.

Shaele - yay for cycle buddies!

nevergivingup - welcome! I hope you get a quick sticky baby!

Anybody have random things they are entertaining themselves with at the moment? I'm really into jewelry, so I'm spending my time browsing silver/CZ wedding sets to wear when my fingers swell too much for my real rings. I bought a couple big bling sets last time I was pregnant and am excited for some new ones, hehe.

I also agree with not involving DH with all the information. I don't tell DH when I O, he knows when AF is due and that O happens around 2 weeks after. He doesn't want to be stressed and wants the more "when it happens" approach but is always saying how much he wants another and wants me to be pregnant now. He also made me giggle the other day by saying that (maybe tmi and a bit dirty) his testicals needed a massage because they've been hard producing lots of swimmers for me..

I've started to crochet a blanket - will either be a cot size or bigger depends how bored I get with it lol.

Hi nevergivingup! welcome! I hope that you get a sticky bean this time! I am sorry that is has been difficult for you.

slammerkin- that's such an interesting idea about the jewelry...i never even thought of it when i was pregnant and my hands swelled up a lot...(i ended up having symptoms of preeclampsia near the end of term) so i couldn't wear my rings at all. that sounds fun...i think i will check into that lol. Me I've been thinking about some melodies that i can turn into a lullaby. I like to compose music and I wrote a lullaby for my daughter. it's simple but i think its pretty. its hard to practice with a toddler in the house though. i either have to keep one eye on her and one eye on the piano or risk the chance of waking her up when she naps.

babydoll- i literally lol when i read that. tmi or dirty doesn't bother me. im pretty open about stuff...esp after having a baby...bye bye morals. That's great you've started a blanket. I wish i knew how to knit or crochet. I got a lot of homemade blankets made for my daughter from friends and family and they are always so pretty.

I didn't think most here would mind. My sister taught me to crochet when I was pregnant with my son but I haven't made much and have just really gotten into it now.
I'd love to be able to play the piano. The composing sounds like fun!

Yay you made it!! And I just noticed your profile pic... Dreaming of being pregnant!! These ladies are great! And God is so good

I think I'm officially down to 3 weeks left before I can start TTC!! Woo hoo!!

For you ladies on CD7, are you going to start OPKs on CD10 or CD12? And will you be testing once in the AM and once in the PM? (For those of you who are testing that is )

Hehe at your DH! So, despite my saying that I agree with leaving the details out for DH, last night he was checking with me on when we need to be getting busy, and he said we could do it tomorrow (now today) since we were both going to be home...I was like "well, I'll have to check my cervical mucous tomorrow, but sure we can do it either way" and he was like "ok, you can keep that to yourself, and just let me know if we need to do it" HAHAHA.

I crochet too! I'm ashamed I still have never crocheted anything for my DD. Maybe I'll do something for the next one. I crocheted two blankets for Christmas gifts, and recently started working on a couple doilies for fun.

I also like cross-stitch, but that's just too hard to do with a toddler around. It takes too much concentration. Even during the rare moments when I'm on my own I can't psych myself up for it.

I hated to be without some sort of ring. I mostly wore a silver claddagh ring at the end, but I just love bling, lol.

That's so cool that you compose music! My husband plays several instruments and can sing reasonably well, but I can't even stay in the right key when I sing.
