Hi I am new here and I figured i would give the journals a shot, me (22) and dh (Jason) (28) met three years ago and have been insepriable every since. God truly blessed me when he brought Jason into my life.

We got married in june 2010, and in December of the same year we decided to try and get pregnant.
We stopped using protection in December as well in the hopes and prayers we would get pregnant soon!


We are on are 23rd cycle and it has been somewhat been discouraging lately. I know it will happen in God's time but it's heart breaking each month when Af shows her ugly face . but, I am excitied to start this journal .

Also kinda of unrealted but how do you get the signatures ? I have been wanting one but I don't know how to lol.

Thank you all for taking time to read my journal

So af is due the 16th and I am really hoping she doesn't show her ugly self ha !! Right now I am trying not to drive myself crazy in the two week wait. Where you think every thing could or could not be a pregnancy symptom. You over analayze and it makes you feel absoloutley crazy. Am I crazy or do you all ldo this as well ? I am happy right now that there is at least a chance until af does/doesn't show.

But if it didn't happen then I am out this month and, that makes me sad. Oh have I mentioned how much I hate hate hate the two week wait lol. to all and for everyone to get BFP's soon and goodluck. Also any suggestions on how to pass time during the two week wait is welcome. I think we all need this to help pass time lol. Thank you all for reading my journal.

Hey there Kimberly!!

AF is due for me on the 17th so I know how you are feeling!!!! These 2WWs are the worst!!!! I am over analyzing every sign too If you come up with a good way to pass the time let me know!! Mostly I hang out on here and mark off the days on my calendar. . . not that any of that helps. . .

When are you planning to test?? Best of luck!!

Oh and for signatures - you can make one under Quick Links > Edit Signature

usually I wait until a week late to test if i can hold off that long that is lol. When do you usually test ?Dh likes for me to wait so if i get a negative I wont be so upset and, my af has a mind of her own if she wants to show up on time or not , usually I am not to off usually by a week or so. Hopefully we will both get our bfp's this month and good luck Thank you for telling me how to do the signature.

Previously - I have waited for AF so there has not been much testing for me but I also never had a "good feeling" about a cycle before this one - Fx I am not jinxing myself but this time I think I am going to let myself test on this upcoming Monday - so that will be 13 DPO but 5 days before AF is expected. . . not sure why but I am crazy antsy this cycle. . .

Best of Luck!!!!!

Hi Kimberly, Welcome to journaling. I'm Karin

I will only say that I can related to your long journey. DH, Patrick, and I, both 37 (almost both 38), were on a long, painful 3 1/2 year TTC journey. The 2WW never gets easier, and I never really stopped obsessing about symptoms.

Also, there is a board here called Siggies R Us (linked here). If you want someone to make you a signature, you can request one there. You can either post your request on the main board (this is called a FFA or "free for all" request), where anyone can pick up your request and complete it. Or, you can request one from a specific maker on their own thread (in the Requests for Specific Siggy Makers subforum. Please read the rules before asking/posting your request though. These ladies do this as a free service for all of us, in their spare time, so it's always nice to be polite and follow the rules when asking!

Hope that helps. Best of luck to you!

Hi Kimberly,

to journalling!!! I'm Nicholle (33) DH (36) and I have been ttcing since August 2011, so not as long as you, but still awhile (on cycle #16). Have you seen your ob/gyn to discuss ttcing. As you have been trying for awhile, maybe they'll recommend MA. We are working with a RE and hoping to have IUI this cycle. Hopefully you won't need any of this and you get your BFP soon! Good luck!

I was nervous too and I'm still nervous. My first appointment went well and I already had an u/s and some bw drawn. The bw is pending, so I'm a bit anxious about that. I have my HSG on Monday, and I'm nervous that they will find an abnormality, but I can't do anything about it so I'm trying not to worry. Hopefully your ob/gyn and or your RE will come up with a great plan to get you a sticky BFP! GL

Journal Entry # 3.

So just another week until the shows up or doesn't hopefully. I don't really feel any different today I have had sore BB's ( does anyone ever get shooting pains in your BB's ??)but I usually get those a week before Af anyway. I haven't started cramping yet so thats a good thing . I think I am going to do a couple of things to try and keep my mind off the 2 week wait. I think i may try and do scrapbooking and doing some exercising .

I have to meet with my gyno the 19th , to discuss fertility and , such.
He may refer me , which I say he probably does. Does anyone have any tips on what to expect when/if I get tested for fertility? I am nuervous but, excitied to figure out what the problem is ? Almost two years is long enough!! Thank you all for taking time to read my Journal

Hi Kim,

Did you read about my RE and HSG appt? Overall, they both went really well. Hopefully you won't need to see RE, but if you do, hopefully your BFP will follow after that! GL and KUP!

So sorry Kimberly! So far, seeing a RE is the best thing that happened to me! Hopefully, the RE can help you figure out what's going on and get you your BFP! KUP!
