African or African-Americans TTC


Hi I wanted to start a thread of African or African-American moms who are TTCing. I just know that we may have similar things in common as it relates to pregnancy and family. Its a sisterhood, and I just want us to be able to encourage one another in love through Christ. So wont you join in? Tell us where you are in your journey, how long you have been TTCing and anything else you want us to know!

I have been TTCing almost 11 months, and right now I am in my fertile days so we are like crazy. I have one daughter from a previous marriage who is 9 yrs old.

GL on your as I know they are coming soon!

to all!


**Update: Got my BFP on June 9, 2010 after 15 months of TTCing.**
**Update: Malcolm Josiah was born at 41 weeks, 1 day, weighing 10lbs, 10oz, and 22 inches long on 2/25/11 @ 3:26pm.**

Me!Me!Me! LOL. We've been ttc for 15 months after a missed miscarriage last year. We have had tons of tests and everything came back normal. So why are we not pregnant? Ha! Your guess is as good as mine. Unexplained infertility is the answer. Not one that I like but that's all the dr's can tell us.

Welcome! Sorry to hear about your loss... I hate that term "unexplained infertility". Keep praying you will get BFP. I believe that!

Welcome Kareen, Wanabamummy, Lovinglife83, and Girlblue! I am so excited to have you all here.

@Lovinglife83: What part of Tennessee do you live in? I work in Memphis, but I live in Mississippi. I have been here 3 yrs. Good luck on your journey to conceiving your last precious baby!

@Girlblue: Yes I love positive sister love because so many people portray us as being "angry" and "bitter"! GL on your journey. Will this be your first?

@Kareen & wanabamummy: So happy you are here!

DH and I have been BDing like crazy! I have PCOS so I have to take metformin + clomid in order to ovulate every month. The crazy part is that I usually ovulate a bit earlier than what is calculated through all these online calculators, LOL. So I dont want to miss it this time. Over the holidays my grandma told me to "make her a boy", LOL. In my mind, I was like if only she knew!!!

Hi Ladies,

I just wanted to drop in and give my support to you all. I love to see sistas supporting sistas. Mrskcbrown, I really hope that this is your month. I do believe that the Lord hear and answers prayers. So all of you keep the faith and don't give up. I am here if you would like to talk. I'm from Mississippi as well, so we got to stick together. Just a thought, maybe you should have started you ladies a buddy team.

Good Luck to you all and my prayers are with you. xoxo

Thanks Dede80! I am still trying to figure this BNB thingy out. How would I start a buddy thingy? I am from Southaven, are you close to here? Congrats on your ! I really, really do hope this is our month. Every month I feel like I just want to give up, but God. Ten months!! My DH said yesterday, "if this isnt our month......(he hesitates)....then we will just try again next month". LOL, as if he was going to say something else! Yes I will be asking you a ton of questions! Blessings to you!
