I almost feel odd posting on here because my husband of almost 10 years and I have only been trying since June and we have 2 beautifully healthy boys already. (8 and 2). However, when we initially decided to try for one more, we said that if I wasn't pregnant by our baby's 2nd bday, we would stop. Well, I got pregnant in August, and lost the baby shortly after. (dx as chemical). Decided to try again immediately, then my husband had a mild heart attack in October, which resulted in 1 stent. He wanted to try at least through the end of this year (which I want too, but nervous about having another after his heart attack). We have been trying, (last period, 10/29/12). I have decided that I want one baaaaaad. I am finding myself becoming crazy about it. I have even became a poas addict. (already taken 3- first one I swear there was a line, 2nd and 3rd, nothing) Feeling very blah and emotional today. Looking for some support from women who can relate to my obsession.

Welcome!  We are all a little obsessed here :)  Were you on the board for your previous boys?  I hope you get you bfp soon.

It sounds like you have been through quite a lot. I can only imagine that it has made you all stronger as a family.

May I ask a personal question?  How do you like/dislike the age difference in your two boys? I ask because ds if 5.5 now and we are still trying for #2.  They'll be at least 6+ years apart. We always planned to have a few years between them, but never more than 4, then the economy tanked.  Now I just can't seem to get knocked up! :)

Welcome again. You'll have a great group of women here to support you through this journey!

Brooke :)

I'm having the same situation... Just took a test and again negative we've been trying since 11/5 and my last menstrual was 10/21 with a weird bleed after it on 10/31 that lasted 2 days ... I am not sure why I can't get a positive reading yet

Welcome to the board! It's so easy to become a bit obsessed when baby fever strikes hard. How long are your cycles normally?

Thank-you all for the kind warm welcomes!  I finally started my period on December 1st.  One more month to conceive and then we are finished.  (we have 3 wonderfully healthy children already).  My cycles range in legnth from 33-36 days.
