Sorry to hear that, I am having the same problem with my daughter. On and off for a while now, and lately she has been sick more often. I have an ongoing thread about it in the health forum here. It's so stressful.

I'm just trying to keep telling myself this was a good time for it to happen (if it had to happen at all ) She is old enough to tell us how she feels, where it hurts etc. And she is still at a young age where it will be sorted out (hopefully) before she grows up. Also hopefully it will all be sorted and she will be better before August. Otherwise I'm not going to want to ttc if she is still sick and we still don't know what's causing it or how we can help her.


Congrats Krsitinb on your BFP, how exciting! I'm excited just reading it lol

Well, ladies, DH keeps talking about TTC earlier and earlier. Perhaps even this July!!! Don't know if I'd be ready for that or not, but it's a great sign!

just wanted to throw in a word of support for you.. I've got a birthday on December 29, and I've always loved it. Being after Chrstmas, as a child it was always something exciting to look forward to when all the thrills of Christmas were fading. And if I really wanted something and didn't get it on Christmas, there was just enough time for someone to buy it for my birthday (or vice versa). I never felt jipped.. my birthday celebrations were the same as anyone else (though often cancelled due to blizzards!). And you get those specialty cards for birthdays in December/Christmas. I guess the comments I always hear is "wow.. that's right by Christmas!".. as if it's a cool thing.
Another thing that a dear relative started for me was to celebrate my half birthday in June.. I'd get half a card, half a cake, and a lil present.. and let me tell you, I was the envy of many a child!!
Think of it this way... isn't Christmas in a sense a birthday party? My crazy aunt once made a birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas, and yes, we sang!
All in all, a baby is the best present you can get, any day of the year.

^^Yeah there are definately positive things about a birthday near Christmas too!

I have started a diet to lose weight and be more healthy before TTC. Right now it's mainly to lose the weight, then it will be eating plenty of healthier foods once the weight is off. Wish me luck....I need it.....

Since starting an elimination diet about a year ago to work toward healing my gut as well as DS's I've dropped about 65lbs : . No dairy, peanuts and most other legumes, soy (his soy allergy has gotten better so now we get some soy, mmmmm, Tofutti ), eggs, nuts, seeds, fish (shell and otherwise, though we tried Tilapia and love it, no reactions either), hmm, I think that's it.

I'm pretty ecstatic since I was 40lbs overweight before conceiving DS, then gained another 25 over the course of 2 years : . Despite BF around the clock . Sucked, I used to run, strength train, all of that and was used to being all svelte and stuff. Now, I bought a new pair of running shoes a few weeks ago : . Got about 10 more lbs to lose but I'll shoot for 15 .

Even when I was thin I wasn't very healthy though : . My consciousness of what I put into my body is worlds apart from where I used to be.

You can do it! It's so hard at first but get through those first couple of months and you'll wonder how things were not always this way .

Thinking about what we'll need for another baby in the house. Having fun looking at CDs and everything . ToddlerBaby has decided that's enough computer time for me, gotta run!

Hey all! Can you add me to this list? I live in MN, have 1 daugther and we will be TTC this fall. We currently use condoms as our source of BC but I am temping. I actually need help with my chart. My temps are all over the freaking place. I am getting BBT soon here (its in the mail) so I am hoping it will be more accurate. Its only my first month charting so it could just take some getting use to! Nice to meet you all!

Here is my chart

Hi, everyone. I'm new to this thread. I really want to be pregnant again and want another baby and it seems like things keep pushing it back. I have almost 3 yr old b/g twins. We are going on trip to Alaska in July and I wanted to wait until after the trip since I was so sick with the last pregnancy. Now we've decided to move summer of 2010 and so we can't be expecting in the middle of summer so we have to wait even longer. I don't want to be due in Aug because the kids will be starting their new preschool so now I can't start trying until December of 2009. I am sad and just want to be pregnant. I know we aren't ready now anyways because my ds is slighty autistic and has special needs and he gets very jealous of me holding any baby or even my husband touching me or holding hands. I want to wait until he is a little older and I can explain things to him better. I want everyone in our family to be ready for a baby, not just me..........so I'm feeling sad, but there is nothing that I can do about it right now.

Thanks mamacatsbaby! I find dieting and exercise so difficult, but Im trying to think of it like -I want a baby more than I want food lol I know that sounds silly, but it does help me focus a little better. Grocery shopping is that hardest and when other people are eating infront of me like if we visit family which we do regularly. But yes, I think cutting out the bad stuff and portion control is the key, and ofcourse doing extra exercise -I've just done my first part of that for today.

My other main focus is work because Im really hoping for a promotion in May, it will help so much with us financially. I don't want to be struggling with 2 children like I used to when my dd was younger.

Welcome childbirth_fanatic and Owachi! It's really hard waiting sometimes

Wanting but Waiting until 2010!: June-August

Husband deploying at the end of the year, we'll be TTC when he's on his mid-deployment leave [vacation].
post #150 of 447
A lot of us are losing so we can get healthy for a baby. Very cool!

DH has decided we are taking a family vacation at the end of May through the first week of June. I *might* be thin enough then to TTC. A vacation baby would be kind of neat.

Hey gals, I introduced myself here a while ago but have been kinda MIA on this thread.... but, could someone take a look at my chart and tell me what they think. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/heather719 We are currently TTA but a am a little suspicious of my chart (and would be thrilled!) Objective feedback would be wonderful. Thanks ladies

Hey I think I belong here, I want a baby sooo bad but right now is the wrong time with DH and I living in different countries and all, Dh does come here about once a month but still I don't want to be pregnant alone living with my parents. In theory i should be moving to DHs country in april-may, so sign me up for September to start TTCing.

I have started charting already to learn about my cycles for when the time is right, may have made a mistake on DHs last visit giving him the green light on CD 9, I'm freaking a bit about it but i figured it takes more to conceive than a one time slip up.

Heather719 If I were you I would test considering your last cycle wsa only 26 days.
post #153 of 447
Well, I did test at 10, 11 and 14 DPO and all 3 were BFN. I was going to wait until monday (18dpo) to test again. It looks like a PG chart to me I just didnt know if I was alone in thinking that.

Not to say you should freak out, but DS was a one-time "slip up" (He was very much wanted as we were planning to TTC in 3 months). We only DTD unprotected once that month (first time ever in our relationship) and there he was!

Looking at your previous cycle at 26 days (this is around your normal?) and this cycle now on day 31, temps consistently high, yeah, I'd test again on Monday if AF hasn't shown up. Looks like this cycle could be a PG chart. Personally, I'd have a few different test brands on hand too .

Ok I'm scared now, kind of, I know there is a small chance so if I am pregnant we'll deal with it, I really really want a baby but I really really don't want one right now, it would complicate things SO much, especially since I don't want to be pregnant alone, I would like to share it with DH, but I'm sure it will work out at the end. I plan to test on tuesday so we'll see.

I am waiting until summer/fall 2009 and it is killing me!! Many reasons for waiting (finances, new job, almost-3 year old still Bfing, recent relocation, DH not working & starting a business, no house yet...)

I am glad there are others out there going through this, it is hard! I have baby fever bad, DD and DH are enthusiastic about babies, I am 36 in April, there's only so much waiting I can do! I look forward to reading and posting here, thanks!!
Hi again everyone, reading about your experiences while you wait and plan new babies has been nice, knowing others are dealing with the same issues (and many other ones). Just a quick update from me: still waiting for summer/fall 2009, finances made it necessary for DH to but the business-starting plan on hold and he got a job in our new location, one he really likes . DD is 3 in April and almost weaned . We are still saving for a house, but with DH unemployed for 3 months, we have some savings to recoup that we had to spend on survival. We're getting closer, at any rate. Ooooh, I want a baby, our DD is so empathetic and really wants a sibling. Hopefully we'll get there soon. Hopefully we all will soon!!! :
post #158 of 447
I cant wait to join the preggo mommies! I am glad there are quite a few of us though that are in the same wanting but waiting time frame! Hopefully this fall is it for us!
post #159 of 447
Oh yeah, thought i would update everyone..... AF came into town yesterday. I am really light though, and lighter today than I was yesterday, but my temp did drop. I guess my suprise blessing wont be arriving this month.
post #160 of 447
Im sorry heather719

I might have to push back my ttc month Because my dd's health issues are making things very difficult and stressful for me. I'm hopefuly we will get it sorted out somehow but we are having a bad day today and I feel like if she is still sick and we are no closer to helping her get better by August...I really won't feel ready to ttc. Don't think I could cope with that if im still dealing with this yk? It sucks for us both.
