Alexx: I will say again, you are not alone. Just because some of us are pregnant now or already have had our babies doesn't mean we haven't gone through the struggles of TTC as you are. Even secondary infertility. Achieving both of my pregnancies was very challenging. I have a history of endometriosis and had to have 2 surgeries to correct it in my 20's. I was told that conceiving would be difficult as a result of the scar tissue etc. After a year of TTC on our own we had a fertility workup and scheduled an HSG. It was determined that I had anovulatory cycles. So I was put on Clomid and took it for several cycles, another year by then. We actually had an appt with a specialist set up when I found out I was pregnant. I didn't even know if I O'd let alone that we were successful. Once Aaron was a year old we started trying again, this time I was put on Clomid right away. The dosage was increased gradually to the maximum and this continued for several cycles with no response. Then I was put on Femara which I also took for several cycles. During most of these I was put on Provera to induce new one's since the majority of them I never O'd. After this we started injections, then IUI and finally IVF. It was almost 3 years when I got my BFP for Lucas. He was a twin and Baby B didn't survive past 8 weeks. My pregnancy was very difficult, I was sick the whole time. I was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, had symptoms for it from 24 weeks on and it developed fully by 32 weeks. Lucas was born at 36 weeks because the pre-e became severe and threatened both our lives. Both my boys are fertility miracles. I pray that you will have yours ♥ Please keep us informed how you're doing, wishing you all the best and know we are here if you need us for support ♥

Brie- Yay, no more wondering! Those cups sound interesting. I've wondered about those, but am afraid them might fail.
Amy- Glad your stomach is doing better! Hope your chiro appt is good to you!
Simone- I'm intrigued.
AFM- Felt baby kick last night twice more firmly. I could softly feel it from the outside. I told DH and of course when he put his hand there nothing again after that. Movements are still sporadic and not always that strong. Looking forward to feeling baby more. Spent yesterday with my nephew and had him overnight. We've had a lot of fun and am now waiting for my sister to get off work to go out to lunch.

Simone: I'm guessing Isra is preggers
Tara: I used softcups for months, and it has a bit of a learning curve at first, but I also was always scared of "getting to know my body" so it took me a month or so to figure out the whole cervix/pubic bone positioning required for the soft cup. I used the sckoon today for the first time and had no issues. a little awkward at first. However, I could never go back to tampons..like ever!
Amy: I love the chiropractor. DH is convinced they are "voo doo " doctors..but I know I can go in with a headache from you know where, and after an adjustment, its gone and I feel great.
Just a quick note: I thought AF had started, but ended up with just a little bit of the brown goo stuff I had .. like i did when i was PG with Layla. Now im clear. I'm waiting to see if AF starts full force tomorrow or not.
