    What is your name (or a name you'd like to be called)? Nicole, and I am pretty happy with people calling me...Nicole. (Go figure!)

    How did you come up with your username? Because everyone I know is pregnant and all I have been saying for the last, I dunno 1.5 years is why not me? I am a good person! ;)

    How long have you been TTC? Around a year and a half. (sorta, we have been not focusing on it, just saying if it happens great. But lately just been really focusing on it.)

    How did you find out about APA? Just searching on google.com for advice on getting pregnant and support groups.

    Anything else you'd like to add? My husband has a Glioblastoma brain tumor and has had treatment for it. He has a daughter from a previous marriage so I know it is possible. Just not sure if he still can. I realize I need to go see a doctor, just scared to hear the answer of, "it isn't possible". Everyone around me is having a baby, and so I am just sad now. Found myself crying nonstop for a while in my room on Thanksgiving. My cousin (who is pretty much my best friend/sister) told me she was pregnant with her third. And they just started to try in October..and she is already 5 weeks pregnant. I am happy for her, but I was sooooo depressed. Okay, well that is me in a very small nutshell! thanks for listening/reading.

    Anything else you'd like to add?
    I have recently started to chart in an effort to take more charge of my fertility. I have had the full spectrum of recurrent miscarriage tests and there were no major problems. I had a hysteroscopy and endo-biopsy about three weeks ago and the results showed I didn't ovulate my last cycle. OB had be take Clomid this cycle days 4-8 and I go for a follicle ultrasound on December 10th.

    Hi,

    I'd very much like to get help with some pregancy related questions.
    I found this forum is a great support group.

    My name is daniella.
    I know this site by googling pregancy related key words.
    I had abortion 11/08/07 while I was not ready. Now I am married with the same man and ready to have child. We have tried for 8 months. I am 39, my DH is 37. I have minimal menstrual flow now, which might be due to scar tissue from abortion. Do you know whether scar tissue in fallopian tube or the uterus can occude the chance of getting pregnant? I just had my first doctor visit, she said I have a lot of eggs.

    I regret tremendously of having an abortion. and now scared of no chance to have babies with my DH.
    Please help!

    BD = baby dance (sex)
    AF = aunt flo (period)
    TTC = trying to conceive

    How long have you been TTC? 14 months (since Oct 06)

    How did you find out about APA? GOOGLE of course. I was searching for early pregnancy symptoms a few months ago but never noticed the forums until the other day and decided that it would be nice to join and chat with women who are going through the exact same things I am.

    Anything else you'd like to add? I just started charting on my Aug cycle and I still have a lot to learn about the interpretation of it. Our bodies are very complex and confusing and I hope to learn a lot from you ladies.

    DH has a low sperm count so we are dealing with that slowly. Naturally, he doesn't really want to discuss it but he is getting better as the months go by (we just found out in sept). I am 27 and DH is 31 and we are TTC #1.

    How did you find out about APA? I was googleing Angus Castus to help with infertility....

    Anything else you'd like to add? I CANNOT WAIT to get pregnant, I had my daughter when I was 17, she is now 8. I recently married and have the greatest husband and just graduated from nursing school!!! I feared that now that I am really ready to have more kids that it would prove to be much harder to concieve than it was when I unexpectedly concieved my daughter. I know that I have not been trying for long, I'm just so anxious to start to build my family =) I wish everyone luck!!

    By the way has anyone used Angus Castus and been successful in concieving?

    Hi my name is DeLane, I am a married 25 year old female that is TTC for the first time with my husband of 5 years. My name is DeLane and that is why I used it as my screenname and it is one less thing to remember Today will be day 3 of TTC, so I am new at this. I am wanting to chart but very confused, when surfing the net for answers I stumbled on this site and I think I am here to stay.

  25. Default

    welcome DeLane - can i suggest you start charting your temps etc - get your self a BBT thermometer & join on www.fertilityfriend.com (theres a free trial period) - go through their education program & you'll be right mate.
