The TTC One Thread - May Flowers and BFP's - Page 2

post #21 of 117

Congrats to the ladies with the BFPs!!  DS1 was a January baby.  It's a good time of year to have a baby.  joy.gif

 

Stevi, I will keep my fingers crossed for you that the lines keep getting darker.  fingersx.gif

JustJenny - Congrats! That is awesome news! It's encouraging to see a seasoned TTCer get her BFP. joy.gif

Stevi - I hope things continue to darken up for you. C'mon sticky bean!

I'm waiting to O, please.
post #23 of 117

So happy for the ladies with BFPs, too!  It's so wonderful!  Just found out one of my friends IRL is preggo--7.5 weeks.

 

We are somewhere between waiting to be ready and actually trying.   DH is totally ready and I am still on the fence.  If we get to really actually try with this one, I want it to be fun, you know?  I don't want to be fearful!

 

So anyway, since I'm the one on here and not DH, I'm staying in the Waiting to be Ready.  wink1.gif

Hello everyone and congrats to all BFPs! I'm waiting for the big "O". I started opks early lol..cd 6..but I'm now getting darker lines! Is it ok to dtd even with faint positives?
post #26 of 117

Whelp, I guess you can go ahead and add me to graduates, too--after a few days of limbo with cheapo tests that kept giving me what I thought were evaps, I got an unmistakeable BFP on a FRER.

 

I think I'm in shock. Was not expecting this to happen so soon, and honestly, I'm not totally sure I'm ready--I STILL have slept 8 hours straight only a handful of times since DD was born. Here we go again, I guess...

 

I previously had a molar pregnancy so I'm trying not to feel too invested until we know it's sticking, but for now, I'm smiling: the baby could very well share my Jan. 17th birthday!

 

STEVI--In my experience the darkness of lines can vary GREATLY from test to test, even those within the same batch, so I wouldn't put too much stock in the darkness...I am hoping for you!

post #27 of 117

Well, there goes that. I'm done. I am not pregnant and I cannot keep going along this path of heartache.

 

I want to thank all of the people who have supported me on this site over the years. Most of whom got their BFPs, and so, are no longer here.

 

Think Fertile Thoughts!

I'm so sorry, Stevi!  hug2.gif

post #29 of 117

oh stevi, so sorry to hear that too. it sounds like quite a journey. best wishes for peace and acceptance of what is. 

 

hoping good, with my first pregnancy i didn't figure it out until week 6. I had one day where i was standing on a hot bus and felt very lightheaded, then when i got home i didn't want to eat my salad dinner. i thought it was strange but had no clue i was pregnant. I was doing some lab training the next day and was running tests on myself for the requirements. I did an HCG test, ovulation test, urinanalysis, and other things. Both the hcg and ovulation test came up positive, which really confused me until i realized that if you are really pregnant an OPK will be positive too. i fell to the floor in shock and my supervisor had to come in an help me! i can laugh now. My fiancee took it much easier than i did. 

 

boon, I am waiting for O too.  I will O on thursday night i think.

 

congratulations blanca78!!! how exciting! hope you get some rest, maybe sleep in for mothers day. hope you have a great and healthy pregnancy.

Boon, a positive OPK means that you will ovulate in the next 24-48 hours, so hopefully you're not too late!

Thanks! He was... shocked... even though he knew we were having sex the day before O! In his mind, since I had had YEARS of infertility in the past, he assumed it would take a lot longer. I told him about the baby by giving him a custom onesie with his last name on it. He is happy about the baby, but sad he didn't propose before we got pg. Apparently, there has been an engagement ring in his possession for WEEKS, and he was "waiting for the right time..." :P But we're good - and so thankful :)

I too am cautiously excited... 6 mc years ago, but I'm FAR healthier now than I ever was then, so no reason to fear it, but still not letting myself get all the way excited!

     I was on the infertility boards for almost 4 years, every day, through 6 miscarriages. I gave up too - took charge of other areas of my life, focused on me and my overall health, and got pg on accident a year or so later. There is nothing wrong with taking a break, and re-centering. I wish you all the best :)

post #33 of 117

I will be 44 in less than a month, and have been trying for almost 8 years. There is no more time to "take a break" and try again.

post #34 of 117
Teajunkie that was my first one..I tested today and its still the same dark lines and no temp rise yet! I'm gonna try and stay "busy" and hope this is my month. Been 9 years since I had a successful pregnancy!
post #35 of 117

post #36 of 117

HI everyone. Reading the first two pages of this thread was a relief. We have been TTC, only since December, but no luck. I have not been active in any forum and I don't have friends who are also having babies so reading this- both the happy and sad-was good for me. I am not alone. 

 

The past few months have been so upsetting for me. I know it sounds crazy that I would be so upset when it has only been a few months and I have four children already, but I am. 

 

In brief, our story: After DC #4, I thought I might be 'done'. It was a very hard birth and I was sick afterwards for a long time. Soon after I recovered, though, I realized I did not feel like saying no forever to another child. But DH did. I recognize that the hard birth and illness on my part affected him a lot and he needed time. It was hard for me to want a baby and not be able to move forward with that. A lot of time passed and now that child is almost 5 years old. Over the winter, DH said he is open to TTC again. It was the happiest moment of my life. 

 

I am a bit older than I was when I conceived the others. I am 32 now. Still, I am surprised we aren't pregnant. I don't want anything to be wrong. I get so emotional about it that I almost want to give up and go back to DH not wanting a baby. I am sure you all know how rollercoastery this is. 

 

Anyway, nice to meet you all. You can add me to "Waiting to Know". I O'ed on the 10th of May. 

 

Tabitha

I'll cross my fingers for you, Boon!!  I love taking OPKs just because I am fascinated by what my body is doing.  winky.gif

 

Welcome Tabitha!  I am also 32 and going to start TTC for #3 next month.  DS2 was born when I was 29 so this will my first time TTC in my 30s and I don't know how much harder it is going to be.  Guess I'll find out soon!  Keeping my fingers crossed for you, too!  fingersx.gif

broc1.gifcarrot.gifbanana.gifCongrats ValarieR, JustJenny, and Blanca78!!! dust.gifHappy, healthy, worry free pregnancies to you all!!!

 

AFM - I expect AF this weekend and we will be TTC with that cycle!

 

post #39 of 117

Oh my, Tabitha and Teajunkie!  Early 30s is not so old to have trouble! 

 

So suddenly I feel ready.  I know I was fussing the other day about not being ready, but I feel peaceful about it now.  I still don't know what I would do for a birth attendant, but we can figure it out.  DH and I DTD on cd19.  I normally O on cd16, so it's unlikely I'm pregnant, but I just feel good feeling fully open to it now.

It is so good to feel at peace. We also have no idea about the birth- our last to were UCs- but I know that will come to us. 

 

Nice to meet you all!
