My name is Nikki, I am 23. About 4 years ago we started TTC, (my ex and I) We were together for 3 years and had both been wanting a baby. After 3 months being laid back and NTNP, (which we had done in the past, even in highschool). I got that BFP. We were excited!! Picked out names and told everybody, even started a gift registry....way too early Had a M/c at 9 weeks, after seeing little beans HB 3 days earlier. I was devestated.

So, I went all crazy TTC. Read everything there is to read, tried many things. On the 5th month I decided to try the fertility recipe http://http://womens-place.com/ttc/vitex.php We got PG the first month using it!! I was excited, but scared to be excited. Finally around 20 weeks, i would finally talk about names, and stuff like that. I started to relax. 28 weeks, went for a routine U/S...I was 2 cm dilated, and my cervix was funneling. Baby's head was also right there ready to come down. My doctor said, "you could have this baby today, tomorrow, we don't know how long you have been like this, so we don't know. It is highly likely you could deliver this week. However...she stayed in 8 weeks. 2 hours and 45 min of labor and a healthy baby girl born at 36 weeks, weighs 7lbs 12 oz!! Lilyanna May.

When she was 2 months old, her dad changed his mind, he moved out and was in and out of her life. A few months later we tried to work things out between us for a couple months. I was on the mini pill because I was still nursing. I finally had enough of his crap, and called it quits. He had turned into an alcoholic, and he put everything before us, I was DONE!!! A week later I thought I was having pg symptoms....sure enough I was I was really scared, I was a single mom, with a 10 month old. Everybody in my life already thought it was stupid to even try and work things out with him and i got pg AGAIN! I didnt tell anybody other than my best friend, I was still trying to wrap my head around it all when the pain started. On my left side, it started as a nagging feeling but got worse and worse as the day went on. Finally, while laying on my parents couch rolling in pain, I blurted, "i need to go to the hospital, i am pregnantg and somthine is wrong!" It turned out to be ectopic. But they didnt need surgery to repair it THANK goodness!!!

Sp, meanwhile, I started seeing a guy that I had known for years and I kinda dated right after my ex moved out. He was my rock all along, he was my best friedn and my shoulder to lean on while I tried to do what i thought was best. For 8 months, he watched me try with my ex and still stood by me. It was a rough 8 months too, the ex had me in tears more than not, nathan got me through it all. I married him last month

I stopped taking the pill in april. We were NTNP for a couple months, but I was tracking my cycles, so I guess it was trying, lol. Our daughter, lily, will be 3 in april. I alwasy wanted my kids less than 3 years apart, but we are already past that marker.

From my history, we may have a long road ahead. My pregnancy history is not very good. Luckily I have an amazing Dr. He plans on doing an u/s or another cervical scan every week from 14-24 to watch for signs of change, if there is any he will put in a cerclage. (that sounds so scary!!) Also, because of my m/c and ectopic, he will do early u/s's too!!


Thanks for reading!!

No, I haven't. I think I will mention it to the doctor. I am due for my yearly appt. It has been 6 months since going off the pill, so I will see what he suggests.


I have been wondering if my hormones are off, because my cycles are really irregular too. My periods are odd, they are normally really heavy, but this last cycle, was really light, and short. So was the one three months ago, it just seems like I am "off".

Okay. You know, stress can do it -- throw your hormones off, even prevent you ovulating sometimes, and then AF would be different. If you aren't familiar with charting, that might be worth looking into. Then you know if cycles are changeable due to lack of ovulating some months. Mine are! Good book on Fertility Awareness Method is by Toni Weschler. I've found it tremendously helpful.

I usually just track my CM and CP. I wake up alot overnight, and have a toddler that wakes up at random times, so temping probably wouldnt be too accurate right now. I am planning on buying some OPK's this month. I may attempt temping again, possibly get a saliva scope thingy, or whatever they are called, lol. With my daughter i went all in, temping, checking cp and cm, saliva ferning scope....it made me a little crazy, lol. So, I am trying to hold back as long as possible

I did get married a month ago, and had knee surgury 2 weeks ago, for the previous 3 months, i had an extra 2 year old for 11 hours 5 days a week.....i guess I have been a little stressed

Wow! Yeah, I guess so! Hopefully next month is more predictable for you.

Do you get success with the saliva scope? I bought one a year ago, but doesn't work for me. I find that it changes according to time of day, what I've eaten or drunk, even first thing in the morning if I drink water in the night or not my saliva will change.

Yay! Keep hopes up, and let us know how things pan out over the next few weeks!

Things good here, thanks for asking. I got AF, so am on CD2 now. But that's okay, because we've decided to cancel my insurance and sign me up for Samaritan Ministries share group for my health coverage. It has better maternity options, and that's really the main thing I need to be covered for. I don't get sick with much else that requires a dr. So, we shall see how the next few months go! I'm hoping that in spite of delay w/ the paperwork switch that I can get a + test before Christmas.

I havent updated here in a while, so I figured i should!

My last cycle was 70ish days, SO frustrating!!!!

I am now on CD 31, and POSSIBLY 3 dpo, but can't be sure until I get AF or a BFP, so I am gonna continue to do OPK's just in case.

The dr told me last month that if I still didn't get a BFP to come in sometime in march for some testing!! SO, I got a timeline anyway, if we don't get pregnant on our own there is help in the future. So, hoping this is our month, as every month, lol, but, if not atleast we might get some answers soon.
