I was consumed by the fear that I would never have children. God pulled me out of the power of this darkness. Over time, He showed me that He loves me more than I can ever imagine, and that I am important to Him and others whether or not He gives me children.
    Things began to change in how I looked at having children and how I responded to the dreaded questions. I began enjoying my life as it is, though still hoping for it to change. My relationship with my dh has been so wonderful over the last few years as I've slowly worked past my fears.
    Now, after 6 1/2 years of waiting for God to bless us, I am so excited to share that we have had our very first ever POSITIVE!
    Thank you to everyone who encourages others here to keep going.


    Congrats! That is wonderful!

    I'm on cd9 and really really hoping I o early...getting anxious already but I probably have a little less than 2wks to go still. Boo for 35 day cycles

    My opk/hpt combo pack from Amazon shipped yesterday ! Although, it says to expect it Wed the 20th (cd14) and I had wanted to start opks on Monday. I think I'll pick some up from the store today when I go shopping just in case I do o early .

    I ended up discarding that one really low oral temp on my chart and it looks a lot more normal now, LOL! I'm excited to see if I eventually get crosshairs...I've never done temps before so this is all new for me . I'm not sure how accurate it will be since I do have to do some moving around to get my bbt because of co-sleeping. We shall see!

    Anyone have big weekend plans? I'm in the mood for spring cleaning so I think I may do some purging

    Started charting today! Eeeeep! I am so nervous/excited to see what is going on! I always ovulated pretty late so I don't look to ovulate until probably CD 18-19ish. Who knows maybe with my new healthy diet and all the exercise my body will decide to do it earlier.

    Red face Thank you!

    Thanks for all the congrats. I'm so excited and actually a bit nervous b/c we spent so much time figuring out ttc and now my brain has to switch to figuring out pregnancy and birthing plans. I'm glad that I could announce our great news here b/c we're waiting to tell our family and friends for at least a few more weeks. Thanks, again, and I pray that you are all abundantly blessed. Keep praying, trusting and hoping. God is good.

    Oh how frustrating ...I'm so sorry !! Is he having anxiety about ttc...performance-wise I mean? Didn't you mention he made a comment about his sperm?

    Hopefully some swimmers are getting through because of pre-c . Do you think skipping tonight and doing every other would help? Do you have ewcm yet?

    Thinking of you (((hugs)))!! that it happens for you soon! It's definitely not to late!

    Oh...if he's stressed, maybe a glass of wine or a beer first would help??...what do you think?

    Sorry he is having issues, he may need the spark put back into it. I know DH gets feeling pressured sometimes and can't 'focus' on his job at hand but he says its because he can't focus, all he is thinking is 'she needs me to do this' 'I gotta do this or she will be upset'. He says it looses it's appeal so I usually have to relight the fire once in a while, get a little nighty, put music on, nothing fancy just to remind him of dirty, sexy sex Not baby making. Not sure what your comfort levels are with DTD but go to the point that he can forget what his 'job' is.

    Kelly, HOW ARE YOU ABLE TO DO PARAGRAPHS?! Gah! I am SO frustrated that I can't! I'm not sure what's going on with him but he is thinking it may be the small dose of Adderall he was prescribed for his ADHD He is going to stop taking it on the weekends and we're going to try tonight and tomorrow! Cross your fingers for us. I did have EWCM when we DTD on Thursday, I always have it for 4 days before O. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ....................Let's see if this works for a new paragraph! Rachel, I love the pics I really hope we can edit our signatures again SOON. This is so annoying!

    LOL! I didn't realize other ppl couldn't type in paragraphs...I'm just pushing enter twice and it's letting me space it that way

    Could definitely be the adderall! Tell him to drink, drink, drink to flush it out of his system... that it helps!!! My cousin's dh had a terrible time when they maxed him out on zoloft for depression. I like Cait's suggestions too...make it dirty fun !

    Rachel...oh my word I LOVE the new pics of your sweeties...SO precious !!! LOL, and the spaghetti stuck to Olivia's forehead is hysterical !!!

    Another failed attempt. I'm in tears. This sucks. He didn't take any Adderall today either. I don't know what else to do but am pretty sure I'm out this month.

    Looks like I O'd early, yesterday or the day before according to my temps. Maybe the one time it did work on Valentine's Day will do the trick but I really don't have any hope it did.

    Thanks Amber I know it only takes one sperm, I just wish we had some better timing And I wish this wasn't happening, honestly more for DF's sake than mine. I know how upset he is about it.

    This is crazy...ff gave me cross hairs already...said I o-ed on the 15th (cd 9) but I think my weekend temps were inaccurate because I took it later and did some moving around before I temped (co-sleeping with my youngest and bfing). My chart still looks ridiculous ...I think it's just not going to be a good indicator for me since I move too much before taking my temp. And I sleep with a heating pad on my legs/feet will that skew my temps? I'm still going to keep at it though. Will ff readjust if I have more obvious o signs/temps later?

    I'm pretty sure I didn't o...I do feel like I'm going to o before my usual cd21 since I have right-sided ovary pain and had watery cm yesterday but usually I have *a lot* of ewcm several days before. I'm on cd 12 right now. LOL, and of course my opks haven't arrived yet ! I'm supposed to get them Wed (didn't realize they'd get here so late when I ordered them ). If I miss my lh surge at least I'll have the hpts .

    Although, I did get a darkish opk (my last one) on the 16th...it was a bfn but I was surprised it was so dark (cd 10).

    And for whatever reason my ta-tas are *so* sore! I'm bfing and it's extremely unusual for me to be sore...what's up with that?? I took my last hpt on the 13th (14-17dpo and we didn't BD from Jan 27th until Feb 12th) and it was definitely a bfn so I'm 99.9% I'm not pg.

    LOL, I'm more confused than ever ! Wish those opk/hpts would just hurry up and get here !!

    Hmm maybe you did o early? Ff usually adjusts it for me if thy were wrong, but sometimes I need I throw out the off-time temps 1st. Have you tested again wih a hpt just to be sure? Those sound like te symptoms I was having when I got my bfp (before the mc)

    I agree!!

    Eta...Liz, I'm going to do another hpt when they get here, hopefully tomorrow or Wed. I'm expecting bfn but will test just to be sure. It's possible I o-ed early and missed the ewcm because of BD cm/semen...not sure but looking forward to getting those opks...is it Wed yet ??

    Hi everybody! I've been MIA for a couple weeks due to work but wanted to say hello again!

    I wanted to reply to this issue you have been having. We were concerned about this as well and had to find a few "tricks" to make BDing every day for a couple of weeks at a time easier for hubs to do "his part." Anyway, one word...PORN! Also, we had to find just the right position. Three, oral is majorly involved these days. Sometimes just about to the point where his job is about to be finalalized if you KWIM. It can be a lot of pressure for these guys so anything you can find to help is worth it in my opinion

    I also wanted to tell you that with my third baby, I wasn't on BC and we were (stupidly) just relying on pull out method. Which hubs was always, always, always careful about. After three months I was pregnant. I'm convinced it was the pre-c, like Kelly mentioned. So don't lose hope, you never know what can happen.

    Hope everyone is well! I think I should have more time to be active on this board again now after my little hiatus
