  • Blog, website or the like:
  • Anything else you'd like to share: I finally got my BFP on June 18th at 3:00am and was shocked and beyond excited. I had a good feeling I was pregnant this time as I coudl tell from the cramping. It just felt different than AF. I had taken a test the day before and it was still negative. This was my first month of taking Clomid. Although I personally don't or didn't beleive in taken fertility drugs I felt this was my last resort and planned to try it on the lowest amount for 3 month... 1st month and I got my BFP :D So exciting!

  • State or Country: Canada
  • How long it took to you to get your BFP: 1m TTC (we're shocked)(actually it was our second but DH was away at a conference for 6 days when I ovulated last month so we're not really counting that)

  • Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): Another boy would be nice so that DS would have a brother close in age, but a girl would be nice too.
  • Birth Plans/Preferences: Hoping for a home birth this time around. I was transferred last time and ended up with an epi, pitocin, vacuum and the doctor had the glimmer of c-section in his eye after 24hours of labout and 2.5hours of pushing.  I just got accepted to our midwife practice again!
  • Blog, website or the like:
  • Anything else you'd like to share: I'm nursing my 13 month old with no intention of stopping unless it's medically necessary or things get really painful.  I can't wait to see the look on my mother's face when she finds that out.
post #10 of 155

ETA: Mamas, I'm ducking out. Some light bleeding today, so I retested with a pink test, and it was incontrovertibly negative. The other was either a weak false positive or a chemical pregnancy, maybe? Wishing you all the best!

 

 

Kalamos, what a lovely way to get us all organized! Thank you so much.

post #15 of 155

Hi! I'm new to forums like this, but I'm excited to join! I've told a few friends already, but am not going to go fully public till at least week 10 or so, so this is a great way to connect and share!

post #20 of 155

Wow I am excited to see all you mammas still nursing to. :D Now I don't feel like the only one. lol I am nursing my daughter at just over 2 1/2 and plan to through the pregnancy and tandum. I hope all goes well. So far so good. :)  Hows everyone feeling? I hardly feel pregnant. A little cramping. I didn't have some dark brown discharge yesterday and today.... so if that was TMI... Im sure it was just implantation blood that might have been there a little while. I have not MC before but do hold a little fear around it. I need to just let go though and enjoy the ride. :) Hope everyones doign them same. :)
