Hello All, First things first: A little info background on myself...

My name is Stephanie and I am 20 (young, I know). I graduated from college last year and am currently working as an esthetician. My loving boyfriend of 2 years is Zack, we live in a small town in Ontario. We have 1 furbaby, our cat Griffin whom we adopted as a kitten last summer. We have plans to marry in the next few years, we're thinking 2012ish ?? .
And last June (2009) we found out we were pregnant! A suprise, but a very happy one and we were both absolutely THRILLED. I had never really thought about starting a family so soon, but after I got used to the idea I felt like it was the best thing to ever happen to me. And then, every expectant mother's nightmare - I miscarried @ 10 wks. We thought it best to wait until January 2010 for a fresh start.. new year and new beginnings. I have been bitten by the baby bug and we have been trying since Jan. Some important dates since the start of the year:
* As a note I would just like to let you know I havent been on BCP since Spring 2009, and until we decided to start over we just didnt TDT when I was ovulating*
Jan 11th: 1st day of cycle.. I usually have a 29-31 day cycle and have always been fairly regular. next expected period was Feb 9th or 10th. I was 2 weeks late and thought for sure i was preg. Unfortunately not the case. .
Feb 24th: 1st day of cycle. Next expected period was around the 25th of march. One week late.
April 2nd: 1st day of cycle and I am excpeting my period any day now.. 1st to 3rd of may.

Now that youre up to date, wish me luck! And I will definitely keep everyone posted as we continue on our journey.

Hi Stephanie!
Welcome, you will love having a journal! I'm sorry for your loss, I just had one too last cycle at 6 weeks.
I'm Judy (30) and me and DH have been TTC for 6 months now, with 1 loss as I mentioned above. I live in Ontario too, in Toronto to be specific!!

Good luck TTC, I hope you don't spend too much time with us (I mean that in the best way of course!! )

Thanks for your reply, Judy! I know I will enjoy having a journal, a lot of my friends my own age are in different places in their lives than I am right now so it makes it sort of hard for them to get where I am coming from. And its funny, my Bf Zack is from Toronto! We're in Trenton, about 2 1/2 hours or so away. And ditto - I hope your stay is a short one as well.

Hi Stephanie

My name is Sam and I have been ttc for 18 cycles. I am so sorry about your loss. I also had a loss back in January. There are a lot of ladies that have had them some more recently than others. It's never easy.

Congrats on starting a journal. I think you will love all the support you get from everyone on here. I wish I would have started mine a while ago.

I do hope your stay here is short and sweet. I hope af stays far away and you get that in a few days.

Are you planning to use FF to chart your cycle. We love to stalk charts around here

Thanks Stephanie! I've never been to Trenton - how is it over there? It's nice to be able to share on this website, especially when your friends are not going through the same thing you are.

Thanks for responding ladies! Already, I love this site so much - feels like home.

Nayomi - Thanks! And hopefully you will get your BFP soon as well!

Sam - So true, never easy - and I love all the support and kind words that everyone has here!! I wish I found this earlier, would have made a huuuge difference. I dont think I have all the acronyms down to a science yet lol, maybe you could fill me in on the Important ones.. like what is FF?

Judy - Trentons okay, a small town.. Ive been in the area my whole life so I dont have much to compare it to but we're content!

And last but not least, my update for the day:
No af yet! My boobs have been sore for about a week now, sometimes I get that with regular pms tho. In the first pregnancy they hurt soooo much i couldnt even touch them.. so even tho each pregnancy is different I think that is something that will def be a hint when I am preg. I've seen some of the ladies on here tracking their temp. and using opks which I havent tried yet. Normally I kind of go by cp, cm and previous cycle patterns in both of these. If I was to start tracking my temp. what would I be looking for? I want to do all that I can toto make this as quick and easy as possible without becoming so obssesed that I feel more stress about it. Advice is much appreciated!!
Also Ive been putting off going to the doc... im just afraid I will get bad news I guess. I want to go just to put my mind at ease so hopefully I will find out that there are no problems that need to be taken care of. When I lost the first pregnancy I had an ultrasound - and was told that next time everything should be fine, but an internal exam was never done. So if af comes this week (but hopefully she doesnt) then as soon as I can I plan on taking my first step and going to the doc. Fingers Crossed!

Okay. So still no AF today, my boobs still really hurt.. and I dont know why but my left one seems worse? lol.

I took a hpt today, a bfn booo. I have no idea why my cycles have been late the past couple months. I think I am so hoping to be pg that my body tricks itself? I just want af to get here already so i can start over. It was last May that I got pregnant the first time so maybe this May will hold something special for us? A Feb. baby maybe?

I was so sad when I saw that bfn, I was really hoping this was it. I find myself like squinting and holding it up to the light to see if i could find a line haha. Gaah. Oh well I just hope she gets here and I can start better tracking habits. I thought I o'd this month around the 17th ... but then around the 20th-22nd I had a LOT of ewcm. So if I did o around the 20 - 22nd would it be too early to test? Or would it make my cycle longer this time? Im so confused.
