Thanks for the new thread!

 

Sorry I'm so late chiming in this week!  Practice, practice, practice...and a minor mental breakdown on Wednesday.  Ugh.

Thanks for the welcome, StudyingStones. I hope my stay here is very short. Although it did take us 9 months and miscarriage when TTC #1 and since I'm nursing this time, I do have concerns about how long it will take.

 

My reason for wanting a baby- I adore pregnancy and babies. joy.gifEvery time I see a pregnant woman or a newborn, I just want another so badly. Plus, my son loves other children and I really want somebody for him to play with, sooner rather than later. He's at the age where he is starting to like and understand babies too. He kisses them and pats them and tries to hold them. It's so adorable. luxlove.gif

I tested and got a BFN greensad.gif
Oh well, I wasn't really expecting anything else. At least now I know, and we can keep trying this cycle.

Just me and DS.

StudyingStones, what a strange cycle... I always want to know exactly what is happening with my body. But we don't always get what we want. I like your attitude! Happy baby making!

 

BTW - I would say if you keep having symptoms, test again in a few days.

I haven't been able to sign in for days!

 

Just wanted to chime in and let you ladies know I've been thinking of you!


StudyingStones - so sorry for your rough week. So many ups and downs. :( I'll bet your cycle was thrown off by the travel, news of grandma and whatnot. Fingers crossed everything smoothes over for you now.

 

My reasons for wanting another baby? My husband is an amazing father to our two boys - but he wasn't in their life until they were little kids. He missed the whole pregnancy/baby thing - I want this experience with him so badly. I'm hopeful, but not overly optimistic about conceiving - he's in his thirties and has never fathered a child (has never tried, either) - but we don't know for sure that he's fertile, you know? Plus, my eggs are older now. It's been a long, long time since I've made a baby! I'll be jumping out of my skin excited with a BFP when it happens! In the meanwhile, I try not to obsess too much - I let myself linger on the TTC websites a bit, stare at my chart for ten minutes every morning, but otherwise just go on with my days. I don't want to miss out on my beautiful life during the TTC process.

 

3 dpo today - I'll be on vacation starting 9 dpo - I want a BFP this month more than ever, if only because I don't want to deal with another super heavy cycle while on vacation (and a vacation with lots of water sports and pools, nonetheless!) Fingers SUPER crossed. My chart looks good so far, timing was great, but my LP has been a little bit on the short side. Been taking B6 since the start of this cycle...we'll see what happens!

I've wanted a baby forever! And I'm so excited that we're finally ready! We've been married 2.5 years. We're in our late 20s. DH is finally done with grad school. We both have good jobs. And now baby is going to make 3! I hope and pray that TTC will be a quick journey and that next year I'll be snuggling a healthy baby. makebabe.gif

My temp spiked this morning and FF gave me crosshairs! I think they might be a day early, but I'm going with it. Puts me at 3 DPO today! http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/TwilightJoy

I agreed to start TTC again next month. We came to a compromise. Conner will be 1 in October (ONE! CRAZY!!!), so we'll try until January. If we don't catch it by January, we're not trying again until May. Next month-January, we'll just NTNP. Come May, we'll actually TRY. DH has a co-worker that has a 10-month old and his wife is 9 weeks pregnant, intentionally. So this was my compromise. FX that is doesn't happen before next May, LOL. I'm so not ready. Obviously, I would happy if it happened, but Conner took us 16 months, so I wouldn't be upset if this one did, too. =p

Thank you so much. hug.gif I really appreciate the positive thoughts. I'm trying really hard to be patient, but it's hard when you've wanted something for so long and now it's within reach!
