Blah, so I guess it's caffine free diet coke all the way. I also do the prenatal for those two waiting weeks. How long have you been trying? I feel bad that I'm being so selfish already having two and you none :(

Awww don't feel bad. I am sure you have a beautiful family! We made the decision to wait to get pg as we both pursued professional degrees as a second career. FIrst him then me so when it was all said and done we were at the beginning of this bad economy and the job/money wasn't there. We tried for about 9-10 months in 2009 when I got a new job but then I got laid off after a year and lost benefits. So this time around (now that hubby got a permanent job) we are on cyle #4. Though one cycle was shorter than usual, soon as I start temping of course, and adding OPK's and robitussin, lots more water and grapefruit juice. I don't have EWCM, but my efforts are beginning to improve it. Since beginning to temp I haven't O'd... long story short I have one ovary so it is possible that I no longer O. Though I am certain I have O'd in the last year as I have ovary pain about half way through my cycles. Temping to see if I do... too bad I had a bad start.

pics are up if you want to see. Is there ever enough money? I too pursued a career in bad decisions. I have a BS, but it was finding MR. Right that I had troubles with. When he finally asked me to marry him, I went off the pill and didn't mess around. It's funny how that was only 4 years ago and I had absolutely no problems getting pregnant. Took a month both times! Husband bragged about his fertile wife. So don't know what's going on this time around. Is your OPK saying positive? I had a really good month last time. I am like clockwork so knew when it should happen so we started trying right away. I did only 4 OPK strips. The first was light, second very dark, third light and nothing on the forth. Everything was in the cards, but then two weeks later, AF and a glass of reisling. BTW, my first one was pretty much a disater. Thank goodness for insurance. She owes me big when she gets a job HA HA

Well my cycles were of regular length usualy 29-30 days some occasional 28 or 32 day long ones. The last time we TTC I did nothing but try to increase sex. I didn't know when I O'd or if. I bought a BBT towards the end of that but I was wondering why the thing didn't work, I didn't read the directions ha! BUt then right after I bought it we were told we would be laid off a few months down the road. I luckily found Mr. RIght, right after HS but we were really into getting a career. We didn't even start to question our decision to put it off until we were well into getting our degrees and by then of course we couldnt go backwards, and felt in any event we would be able to start sooner than we finally were able to.

I have read that if it's not as dark as the control, that means no O. I use First Response and have had good luck with them, well the first two times HA! According to them, I have O'd every time. We try all around my O date with no luck. All this caculating uhg! Every month goes by and I'm a month older and the little one will be that much younger than their siblings. I guess it's really in another's hands, but I will still try. This will be a long two weeks..... good luck on dark lines, baby dust baby dust baby dust.....

Lucky you on Mr. Right. It took me until I was 32, then 4 years to convince him! Thank you for the compliment on my family.

Hi Tracy, sorry for your lose. I had a chemical pregnancy 3 months ago and a gal in ECFE had the same due date, so I feel for you. She is starting to show and it was hard for me to make it through the meeting without tears.

On a positive note, I am really big into research. Family histoty, MN history any type of history. It was very common for older women to have children. I even came across a few who were in their 50's! So keep up the hope!

Hi Tracy and welcome to the board. So sorry for your losses, but Yay for conceiving DD naturally. Like Michele said, we are here for the good and bad days so jump on in and share with us. Sorry yesterday was a bad day- EDD's and m/c anniversaries are always hard. I've got 2 EDD's coming up next month and not sure how I will handle it.
