Yay grecianern!!! I remember being so anxious about that first jump. Are they going to continue to test your beta levels till your ultrasound? They tested mine bi-weekly and then weekly for a while. Mostly because they were worried about another ectopic, I think. I'm so excited for you! I hope your first ultrasound is awesome!!Wife to Jordan.

Congratulations to all who have succeeded in TTC and blessings for a healthy and happy pregnancy and birth. Prayers and Baby Dust for everyone else to recieve good news too!
I've been a long time name lover but new to posts. I'm so blessed with a wonderful daughter Aurelia (3 3/4 yo) and in July we will start trying for #2. I had my 1st miscarriage in January. It has been an up and down 6 months with both my step sister and BF getting pregnant at the same time. Currently I'm trying to make it through both baby showers and births with my sanity and hoping to conceive before my previous due date of 9/2/13. I keep seeing a reference to a book, could some one bring me up to speed (sorry too many posts to read them all.) ALso thank you to everyone for sharing there stories positive or negative it is a great support ;o)

@seirinreign, the book we are all referring to is called Taking Charge of Your Fertility by...somebody. Toni Weschler I guess, according to a quick Google search. I have not read it yet, but everyone who has speaks very highly of it and highly recommends it. Welcome to our thread, by the way!
@Butterflykisses, do you do all of the tracking and stuff that the book talks about? After a year and a half of trying, it's high time you got your positive! I truly hope this is your month. How do you deal with that kind of disappointment month after month for so long? It nearly kills me every time my period comes, and I've only been trying for half the time that you have.
@Gercianern, I'm glad you received such great news! How are you feeling so far?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 when I was around the 8 month timeframe of TTC I was at my worst. I was a wreck every month and I took it out on my husband a lot. If he didn`t get as upset as me I would get even more emotional about it. I, by my nature am a very anxious and worried. It wasnt until about a year that I started calming down. I pray and pray every month for peace in my heart.Especially around my tww!!! thats the hardest time for sure. And I have to remind myself that I trust God`s will for me, and for some reason he feels now is not the time. Its still very difficult. And I give myself one day cry about it and move on, put my trust in God and let him do the works in my heart. But its important to have a good support system, friends or family. My husband is an amazing supportive and peaceful man, he balances me out a bit hehe. ttc has been easier for me beacause ultimately in the end do trust His will.
Also when I found out that my husband has slightly lower than average sperm count I knew my chances were lower of getting pregnant in the average time it can take a "normal" couple. Still, it`s not easy by any means but just knowing that took some pressure off to concieve right away. Also, I had to take that kind of pressure off my husband as well. But my patience gets tested every month and I fight the jealous thoughts regulary (esp with my sister who`s belly is just too adorable for words, she is 6 months along) ugggg :?
We have some hope since it has been 3 1/2 months now since alchohal has been cut completly from his diet and we have been limiting our caffeine intake as well. It takes three months for old sperm to cycle through so we are hoping his sperm count has jumped! (alcohal can have bad effects on sperm, esp for a guy with lower sperm count) we get him restested soon! like probaly in like 2 weeks.
Good luck over these next few days! remember that the days leading up to your ovualtion are important as well! Spermies can live for a few days, and hopefully one will find its way to the egg!!!!! Baby dust to you Lil Lady!!!!Married to my dream guy: TTC #1 since March 2012. Nothing yet, but praying.
