Good luck on Tuesday! I still have a while to wait. AF is not due for over a week. We just started trying as well. I am nervous and but very excited about having 2! DD has been such an incredible baby and would love a sibling. She just loves babies! I'm also looking forward to another year of mat. leave. Working is just not the same as it used to be! I would love to be home all the time.

Hi ladies! Just wanted to see how things were going with you guys... I need to hear some positive stories to keep my hopes up so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! I had my second iui today and although the numbers were great.... The tww is soooo hard. Trigger shot was on sat so 10 days from there I can test to see if it's out of my system then start testing for a bfp (hopefully)! My scheduled blood test is on the 21st so maybe we will get lucky. It's tough bc I just knew this would be easy. Last time I got pg with my ds the first iui and was hoping it would be that easy as well. No luck. So we are on round two iui and month 8 on our own. So you guys needs to get pregnant to keep me believing in the dream! Lol!
Bummer....af showed up today I was hoping, but with it being the 1st month ttc I wasn't holding my breath!!!
Because I am a planner I hope it happens next month so the baby will be born in October...I am trying to plan around not having a baby at Thanksgiving or Christmas!! I wouldn't say I won't be happy to have a baby then, but I always feel bad for kids with birthdays at the holidays!! DS was born on Easter Sunday (which was special), but his bday won't fall on Easter again for years!!
Titansmom fingers crossed for you....Keep us posted
Mellie- so sorry about af. She really sucks doesn't she?? And i know it was the first month, but that doesn't really make it any easier does it?
I know i'm totally impatient when it comes to this stuff. When we decided to try for a second, i wanted to be pregnant immediately, but alas- that did not happen soo here i am ....2nd iui and 8 months trying on our own. And i agree it's got to be hard being a child with a december b-day. You get all your presents for the year right on top of things. Boo- but what a sweet gift for their momma and daddy, right? A great christmas present to be sure. Is a december baby my first choice? No. Would i be upset? Hell No! But i understand because i'm also a planner. I got lucky and my ds was born on 09-09-09. Easy to remember birthday if nothing else!
So don't be too discouraged. We will be here for you. We are all in this together, after all. And now it's time to start getting excited for next month!!
More people are starting to post YAY! lol. Well i was due to ovulate yesterday but we bd'd 14th, 15th, 16th and will again tonight just to be safe haha. so fingers crossed we will be pregnant this month hows everybody else going? whats the updates? sorry to hear about af mellie, baby dust coming your way
Hey everyone! I am sorta new here. Me and my gf are just starting ttc this month. After using an opk since day 10, I finally got a smiley face tonight on day 13. We go im for my 1st iui tomm morning @ 9am witj donor sperm. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I am praying that everything goes well because I know worrying wont help at all. wish me luck!
H19 - thanks for the well wishes. I was so surprised how painless the iui was. It was just a little uncomfortable but it was over before I knew it. The donor sperm was at 100 million which the doctor said was really good. I had a little bit of bleeding after the iui but the doc said that was nothing to worry about. So now its on to the 2ww and boy do I hope it goes fast!
Kitten - Congrats Congrats on your BFP!! I am so happy for u!
Congrats kitten! It's always good to hear the process is successful for people ttc. How exciting.
Rahshida- it will be tough. I think we all get anxious during the 2ww, but just try your hardest to focus on other things and it will be here before you know it. Hopefully with really positive results.
I am still in the middle of my 2ww. Blood test on Friday. Little anxious-to say the least. Don't know what to think b/c I'm having some weird stuff going on,but I don't want to get my hopes up and get another bfn..... Totally bloated, sooooo tired. Feeling a bit nauseous. All of these are really unusual for me. Also had a little spotting tonight so that kinda worried me, but it was so tiny and af isn't due until sat at the earliest. I did an iui with a trigger and my trigger should be out of my system as of tomorrow. Then if I test tomorrow it should be neg. Then if I test after that and get a bfp it will be for real and not due to the trigger... Keep your fingers crossed for me. And my dh is driving me nuts b/c he keeps talking about how I'm already pregnant. I think I'm gonna have to slap him just to keep him from getting my hopes up...I guess that another fun side effect- I'm totally irritable and it's starting to show. Lol! I love that he is so optimistic but I want to remain realistic. So that we don't put all our proverbial eggs in one basket so to speak.
But enough of my hormonal rantings- how are you guys doing? What's the sound off? I know rahshida is in 2ww and counting. But what's going with everyone else? I hope it's all good things!!
hi ladies! how exciting we have a bfp on the board YAY! gives some hope to the rest of us
Last monthi did an opk and got a positive result around day 16 so i didnt buy an opk this month just guessing it should be roughly around the same time this month but we bd'd 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th 17th and will do again tonight and maybe two nights after that just to be safe haha! hubby sure is enjoying this haha!
Anyway today at work i could really feel i had sore nipples (sorry tmi) as in they were rubbing on my bra, same bra i wear everyday and dont have this trouble. anyway, last time i was pregnant with my son, i got sore nipples from the time i ovulated for about 6 weeks into the pregnancy (i never get sore boobs any other time), so heres hoping its a sign haha, wishful thinkn i know
