Congrats Danielle! I added you to the first page of BFPs! :

I also added Kali's baby girl to be and Minsca's baby boy to be, as I was stalking their DDC's. Excited for them!

Tear - I'm sorry that AF arrived again. I know how much you are aching to have a baby bean fill the void from your m/c. I'm really, really hoping you get a BFP in July!

Beloved - Your dress was way-cool and you looked great! Enjoy married life!

LZP - I know, I've totally vanished from the thread I made about TTC and losing weight... I'm so sorry, but please see my AFM below...

AFM - I have no idea what CD I'm on. And you know what, I LOVE IT! I'm sorry I haven't posted in days... every time I get on, I just feel too tired to post. So... I'm going to take a hiatus from the boards, at least for the summer. Everything (with extra family around, etc.) that went on with my Grandma was very emotionally exhausting. It made me wonder if I will have anything left to give to an additional munchkin. Realistically, I know I DO and I WOULD be able to do it.... but I'm still feeling slightly hesitant at times.

In all, I've realized that my life is quite nice as is. If a is added it would be very, very nice... but if not, my life will still be A-OK.

Soo... I'll be lurking, but probably not posting much, unless I get free time at work. Someone is perfectly welcome to take over the thread for July. Most of you know how!

and to all...

WOW. that is just fantastic, Lis. Congratulations on your new-found peace, even though it had to come from a sad and chaotic situation. The universe really does work in mysterious ways. I am so happy to hear that you're content, and just loving life, no matter what the circumstances.

Enjoy your sabatical! Hope you pop on from time to time to give us an update, and enjoy your summer!

Beloved - Not that you couldnt get a BFP at 9DPO... BUT.... what if you dont? It's so early. At least bargain with me, and wait till 12 DPO. that is more likely to get a good result, but still not guaranteed.

ETA: also- the weekend should go quickly... so maybe you can even wait until Monday...? that would be what - 13 dpo?! awesome.

Don't ruin that beautiful newlywed glow with potential disappointment... just wait for the reason to glow to be twofold!!!

Thanks LZP . I needed to hear that. Plus, an early BFP could be a CP, and I think iwould rather not know.

so true. I made myself PROMISE not to test until late late late.... maybe just wait and see even. (I dont know if i can do it, and you might see some frantic posts from me too, once i get to 9DPO!!!) I am only at 5, and was tempted to do it when i got up tomorrow. so useless.

Yes, CP would be devastating at this point, right...? ugh. i get queasy thinking of it.
post #228 of 355
Thanks Lis for adding my boy announcement. I was just coming over here to announce it to you guys. We are very excited.
BelovedK - don't test... LZP is very very correct, enjoy your blissful honeymoon period. (: that it will get even better in 6 days or so.)

New to the Thread

Hello Everyone-

I have been following this thread for the past little while but have never posted before. I am hoping to just find a little support here and hopefully support you all in your journeys as well. My husband and I have been trying for our second baby for 6 months now and no luck. I think that at least two months we have had chemical pregnancies but I can't prove it because I either didn't test or tested too late. I recognize the symptoms though because I had two of them while trying to conceive my first (who was conceived in three months).

Anyway, I am just feeling really down about this whole thing. I really don't know ANYONE who has really had to "try" to get pregnant. Most of my friends have either gotten pregnant by accident or conceived the first month of trying. While I know that's not the norm, it doesn't help when we are moving on to our 7th month of trying. We just don't know whether we should be overly concerned now or not. I was nursing the first two months of trying so my Dr tells me that at least those two months, and probably more like 3-4 months, don't really count. I don't know, though. It is getting so hard to believe that we are going to get a different result another month when we are already doing everything right (perfect timing, very regular cycles, etc) and NOTHING. I am wondering if we should seek help. Some stats I read say 7-10 months is average for your early 30s (hubby and I are both 31) but then I read that 75% of pregnancies occur in the first 6 months of trying. So confusing!! And like I said, hard to believe that you're going to get a different result the next month, ya know? It's just hard to know if this is "normal" or not, especially when it didn't take very long at all to conceive our first.

Anyway, that is our situation. Oh, and our son is 16 months old.

By the way, Shabbers, I read about your CP and your worries about whether that means you'll ever be pregnant. I wanted you to know that I had 2, maybe 3, chemical pregnancies in a row before I got pregnant with my son and went on to have a perfectly normal pregnancy so hang in there!!

Looking forward to chatting with you all!

Welcome MommytoKeegan I'm sorry you made it to the 6 mo mark I am sending my bestest of vibes that you conceive quickly


I am at 9dpo, and got slight brown when I wiped. Could this be something? I hate to get excited. Maybe it is AF coming very early.

Bumping It is almost July ladies Where is everyone????
post #236 of 355
Beloved, wow!!! I went out of town for the weekend, and I came back to your great news!!! Did you test again today? Updates? I'll tell you, yesterday when I was driving home, I had a feeling you were going to be pregnant. I'm so happy for you!!!

AFM, I honestly think that I now have the prompt I need to stop logging on here. I'm happily sending my little clan on to the DDCs and I can start to focus on the good in my life and not the mania that is TTC. Now before you start to think I'm bitter or something, WAIT! I'm actually feeling quite serene. I think much of my motivation for logging on has been to check in on my girls and cheer them on, but it hasn't been too healthy to constantly remind myself of what I hope to have but currently don't.

I had a super long car ride yesterday to think, and I heard a talk show guy talking about how our society is so wrapped up in what we want and what we're lacking, that we surround ourselves in negative vibes. We fail to see and enjoy the good that we have and the person that we are. It's when we find serenity and contentment with what we have, and picture ourselves moving toward our goals, that the things we want often happen. I think I need to start doing this, and picturing myself as a fertile, receiving woman, and being excited that this journey will someday happen for me, but not drowning myself in impatience and sorrow that it has to happen RIGHT NOW.

I think this clarity comes at a very very important moment for me, since we are flying to Germany today and I will be seeing my pregnant SIL for the first time since she and I got pregnant back in January. Sure, I will be sad to be reminded of how far I expected to be by now (6 1/2 months). But look what I have!!! I'm going to have another little niece, and I'm going to love her so much, and hold her, and she will be excited to see me! How can I let myself miss out on the JOY of that! It's time to stop being bitter. It's poisonous. And logging on feeds it. It reminds me of what I am lacking, instead of dreaming of what I hope to someday have and finding happiness in who I am NOW. Married, surrounded by love, fertile, strong, free, healthy (except for my cold), and facing a beautiful summer vacation. So....do I want to be a spoiled sulky girl? or find the positive? I choose the second.

Lisko, thank you for setting this example, if you get this. I hope that the fall finds us sending each other pregnancy congratulations, but I hope also that we both enjoy ourselves along the way.

All my ladies that supported me and helped me, and : and have happy, healthy pregnancies! You are my darlings! :

I probably will lurk...sometimes...but I may not. I'll miss you!!! :
post #237 of 355
I'm gonna join this thread now. We've been TTC since October 2008 so eight months but after it didn't happen for four months I started charting. I am on cycle number five of charting with no luck still. It seems everyone on the other threads are starting to get their BFPs though I know some have been trying much longer than I have. : we all get our BFP very soon!
post #238 of 355
Tear, you will be greatly missed please do stop by occasionally, and I will be thinking of you often. I really like your attitude, definitely a healthy way of looking at things. I just know you will end up pregnant soon, esp since you are letting so much go. There has been a change in your energy, and I am sure a little one will come soon

Beloved, CONGRATULATIONS!!! :::

I'm so happy for you!

Thanks and yes that'd be great! I hope my stay here is short too. A friend of mine who said she and her DH were NEVER going to ttc just annouced she's pregnant so it's nice to have a place to share this journey with other ladies that have been at it a while!

Tear78 Thanks!!! I've missed reading about you too! I didn't know you defected though .
