Hi Ladies,

My husband and I got married last summer and started ttc right away. About a month after, I had a pap come back abnormal. We were both crushed when to find out that ttc had to be put on hold. I ended up having the LEEP procedure done in October and my doctor has recently cleared us to ttc. She said she'd ultimately like 6 months post op, but with a grin and a wink, stated "everything has healed wonderful and we will be extra cautious if you do conceive". So, moving on with our journey and praying for the best. My post op cm has been almost non-existant, which scared me. I thought perhaps the surgery has messed with my ovulation. The OB assured me that it is still present (ov and cm), it is just going to take a little time to see a more abundant amount. The past two months I have used OK (because I have minimal cm and cannot judge based on that) and it apears as though the 15th is my day. I was a bit surprised by this because my cycle is only 25-26 days. This is CD 19 for me and fingers crossed for happy news in one week!

Good luck to all of you ladies!

Hi, I'm Kelly Smile I recently had a miscarriage at 9 weeks, so I am in the process of healing emotionally and physically so we can try again. My bleeding stopped on January 25th, and I finally got a negative hpt today, so my body is pretty much back to normal. I could ovulate any time, but its impossible to know when. I have heard a lot of stories about women who got pregnant before their first af after a mc, but I'm a little paranoid of it happening too soon and having something go wrong. On the other hand, they say you are very fertile following a mc. I am in sort of an "if it happens, it happens" mind set. Nevermind that I ordered a lifetime supply of opks and hpts. Wink I don't feel like I want to prevent it, we still really want a baby, and I'm 31 so I don't want to put it off for a long time. I guess we will see what happens.

Taylins mommy - good luck and fingers crossed that you get your bfp soon! Do you know what day you are going to test?

Hi Ladies,

Kelly, I am sorry to hear about your mc Sad

I am Nicole, I posted an intro on the main TTC page. Basically I am 27 and have been married 2 1/2 years. I have an 18 month old daughter and me and DH have been ttc since Oct 2011. I had a post partum infection, Endometritis, after my daughter and I am now going to see an infertility specialist to see if this has caused any damage to my tubes or uterus. I have been getting positive opks so the lh surge is there. My cycles are long, anywhere from 33-39 days. I am hoping for 1 more baby, to give my daugther a sibling. Sometimes I feel fine with the fact that we may only be able to have 1 child, and other days I feel so depressed and find it hard to watch my friends grow their families and enjoy their 2nd, 3rd pregnancies. I feel like an awful person, but I just really would like to experience pregnancy one more time.

I try to stay positive and know that there is no way to know that anything is wrong, until we take a look. I may be fine, I may not. I took last month off ttc as the cycle was so long and I was emotionally drained from constantly thinking about if something had happened during that infection, which was 18 months ago but I never thought about it until we started ttc and it didnt happen. I know 3 months isnt a long time, but my daughter was right away, so I cant help but wonder if there is some blockage.

anyways, that sums up my situation. I look forward to chatting with you guys and being there for eachothers support!

I'm so excited to meet you all and be part of a community that I can talk about this sensitive subject with.
Hi Kelly, So very sorry to hear of your mc. I wish you the best! My af is due to arrive February 8, so, many hopes that it doesn't! I have decided that instead of stressing myself out and testing early (as I so eagerly do), I will just wait until I've missed the dreaded period.
Nicole- I hear you on it being hard to watch others with their 2nd, 3rd, etc pregnancies. I absolutely dispise myself for feeling this way, but I have a sister that is 19 and has had 2 live births and 1 abortion. It's so hard to look at those situations.... My baby girl will be 7 in May and she is anxiously awaiting the news of a brother or sister. A sister, just a little bit more though Wink I think if it happens to be a boy first, the poor little man will have ribbons and bows in his hair (compliments of my daughter).
WISHING ALL OF YOU LADIES BFP'S VERY SOON! Smile

Hi Ladies!
I am 31, and my husband and I just started ttc again after about a year off due to fibroid complications. (I was in my 2nd chemically induced menopause to give my body a break since my hemoglobin got so low I was risking organ damage... from all the bleeding) I have had fibroids (and the crazy problems associated with them) for about ten years and have had many surgeries and procedures. Before going in for major surgery to remove all of the fibroids again (which could cause too much scar tissue to ttc), I have decided to try everything natural. I am doing acupuncture, yoga, seeing a naturopath, changed my diet completely and am taking supplements. I am even trying some guided meditation.

I find myself feeling so badly when my friends announce pregnancies (5 close friends in the past three months!), and then I feel bad for feeling bad! Argh! I am NOT happy to hear of any of your struggles, as I wish only happiness and beautiful babies for all of you, but it IS so nice to know I am not alone. Thanks for sharing Smile

Rdmitch- wishing you only great news from here on out! Welcome, I look forward to getting to know you.

Ladies- I'm finding it incredibly hard to stay away from the pg tests! I so badly want to purchase them and start. Ugh...... Any words of infinite wisdom to stay away from them? Smile 5 days till AF is due. Fx that she doesn't come!
