Rachel, Big smile I love that you bought a FIVE pack!!! LOL! I am imagining you with a bouquet of BFPs! Laughing out loud

I know there is nothing I can say to ease your mind about the possibility of m/c, but try to fight those bad thoughts and replace them with good sticky bean thoughts. Like the little bugger is sticking with a combination of bubble gum & Super Glue. Tough little bean getting all nice and cozy, nice and stuck. Stay put little bean, I will be praying for you!

Hello Rachel, Kristina and Theresa!!

Firstly HUGE congrats Rachel - It's been exciting for me to read the developments on here. I agree with Kristina - enjoy yourself based on the information you have and keep positive and strong. My mother had a miscarriage before she had me (I'm the eldest) then she had 4 healthy children without a problem.

Kristina - your situation sounds similar to mine - trying for first baby - AF due later this month. Will be fun to see what eventuates!!

Theresa - sorry to hear you got a BFN this time - I know waiting till Sep will feel like forever - but in 2-3 cycles you'll be on the wagon again. We started in Feb TTC then stopped and started again in June - and I can honestly say it hasn't felt that long and in the meantime I've got to monitor my cycle/ research TTC more.

Let me introduce myself - I'm Kiwirose, real name Mel. Great to about you all. I am a New Zealander living in North Carolina for a year through my husband's work. We have been here just over 2 months so far and have had a great time. My husband and I got married in Jan 2010. We are both 31yrs. We have decided to get started with our family because (like Kristina I think) we want 2-3 children, so ideally would be done child-bearing by 36-38yrs. I have never been preg before.

My husband is very supportive about the whole idea of having children - although like one of you said - he doesn't want to sit and obsess over the details/dream like me!!!! Lol Love

The possibility of having a pregnancy (and even delivery) in the US presents with some interesting separate issues - e.g. getting a handle of the system/care options and health insurance, lack of family and friends support and our mothers/sisters missing out on the journey Sad , getting together temporary baby gear - then having to set up a nursery at home in NZ from scratch. Because we are going to New Zealand for a wedding in Nov/Dec, then home for good in April, plus we have other planned holidays within the US between now and April - we have to be careful with timing - you cannot fly too late in the pregnancy and also discomfort would be a factor worth considering.

Presently we are on our second month TTC - I am on day 21 of my cycle. I went off the pill in Nov 2009 after about 10yrs. My periods have varied in length since then - ranging from 28-38days. Our first month TTC was straight after the wedding in Feb - then we found out about this US opportunity and put the brakes on for a while.

My biggest hurdle at the mo is trying to work out when I ovulate because of my ever-changing cycle length. I don't think my situation is unusual but I do have enough variation to make matters confusing. According to my BBT and OPK, I haven't ovulated yet this cycle (I'm on day 21) - however I've had fertile mucous for at least 7 days. So I've either misjudged my testing or haven't ovulated yet. Does anyone else quite late?

Anyway, enough for now - have written a short novel - have a great long weekend ladies!!

ok so there's all the tests. I accidentally moved the scanner so the bottom one it weird, but that's the one you already saw (from friday), the one with a "2" on it is from saturday, the one with no number on it is from yesterday, and the digital one is from this morning. all FMU's

it's starting to sink in a little more, especially after last night when everyone was getting drunk and I was trying to nonchalantly pass on the alcohol. I was like "ya, I'll take a beer" and kind of just held it as to not raise suspicion lol. I think I took like 3 or 4 sips the whole night, it was torture...

I have to tell him today. how should I do it?

I was thinking of doing that, or getting an "I love daddy" bib and wrapping it for him... I'm pretty sure he knows (or has a good idea), we just haven't talked about it yet... I can't believe he hasn't said anything yet, he asked me this time last week if I was pregnant lol

Another BFN this morning....AF is due tomorrow sometime but I'm out of tests. If she doesn't show in a few days I'll go buy more or go to the clinic on base and get a blood test I suppose.
