There was no TTC the first time round, lol. I have lost pregnancies in the past though so not sure how easy or difficult it will be this time round... We will see. I have done a lot of work on my health, so I'm hopeful. We'll start officially in September probably but in the meantime I want to start reading up on fertility, pregnancy, birth etc. Hence sticking my nose in here, hope that's ok!
In some ways I would have liked a smaller gap, but I also think there are advantages to having 4 or so years in between (if it doesn't take us too long...). Only having one in nappies is appealing!
I'm also totally excited about naming another baby. Mila was around #370 in New Zealand (where I am from) when I was pregnant. Now it's a top 100 name... I still love her name, but you live and you learn.Mother to miss Mila Arden. Expecting her brother Cato Bennett in March 2014

@J_cannoy, the two-week wait will make even the sanest person go batshit crazy. You'll understand what I mean as your wait progresses. Hope yours has a positive ending!
@Grecianern, what are those numbers about? Are you feeling any symptoms yet? This phase must be so nerve-wracking for you, but everything sounds good so far! I mean I have no idea what the numbers mean, but it sounds like your doctor isn't worried. Wishing you all the best as your pregnancy progresses!
@Casilayne, a home birth? You are brave!
@Sarah, are you feeling PMS symptoms? Do you usually feel PMS stuff at this point? If you're not feeling anything one way or the other, that could be kind of hopeful, no?
@Milasmama, of course you can join our thread before officially starting the TTC game. We have others on here who have not yet started. Anyone can chime in on our thread! I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriages. How many have you lost? Were you trying to conceive at the time or were they surprise pregnancies? I hope you get your second baby very soon. Four years is a nice age gap. There is a six-year difference between me and my youngest sister, and we've managed to be pretty close. Don't stress yourself out over that!
Lol...look at me telling someone not to stress over something. What on earth am I talking about...there's not a single thing under the sun that I don't stress over. "Stress over ALL the things!"
I am currently awaiting my next ovulation. My husband and I are going to try to be "spontaneous" about the whole thing this month. I think we say that every month, and I'm still not sure what it means. I am paying close attention to every bodily change and will be ready to jump into action the minute my body shows signs of being actively fertile. Spontaneity is not how I roll.mid-20s . married to my best friend . trying for our first
Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in glorious light.
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

@alzora - I don't normally have many PMS symptoms so it's really hard for me to tell! However, I took a pregnancy test today (day AF is due) and it was a very clear negative (no faint line or anything). So, I'm thinking no. Of course, it's not over till it's over, but I'm not holding my breath. Better luck to everyone else this month!TTC #1

Thanks for the welcome We were 'not preventing' with my other pregnancies, so I wasn't tracking or anything but I knew we could get pregnant.Mother to miss Mila Arden. Expecting her brother Cato Bennett in March 2014

the numbers are the levels of hCG (the pregnancy hormone) in the blood. Anything over 5 = pregnant. After the talk with the nurse, who did nothing to reassure my fears, I started searching. Week 4 levels are 5-426... so I'm right in the middle. I'm guessing that the main concern is doubling. So long as the numbers more than double, everything should be on track. At least that's what I gathered from AmericanPregnancy.org which is a great website for the technical stuff. So, I have that test today and should have the results tomorrow morning by 9am.
Current Symptoms are running very similar to my first pregnancy with my son 5 years ago: exhaustion (or a Coma, since I can fall asleep anywhere at any time), hungry all the time (lots of protein snacks), sore right breast, general aches if I sit too long, swelling of feet and ankles, and as of this morning - a little nausea and I think eggs taste funny. And since I love all forms of eggs, this should be interesting.
I'm so anxious...Mom to Weston Christopher, b. 2008
