@December- I agree. Welcome to all the newcomers. (I'm sort of still one myself, I guess. ) And I agree, I like to read this forum during my precious few, quiet moments of each day. Sometimes in the morning, sometimes at night.
@Alzora- This is my second cycle trying. (It feels like so much longer than that!) Probably because we talked about it for so long before we actually started trying.
Seriously, this is my last post before vacation. I hope everyone has a happy 4th of July! (Especially you Sarah in Australia. ) May our SO's sperm light up our lady bits like fireworks in the night sky. Good luck to everyone still waiting to see if they can join the Jan-March baby forum!Mother of Harold Jonathan, nn Hal

@ alzora, I am getting impatient but I'm also kind of glad. I'll know soon enough if I'm not pregnant without taking a test, and I'm not super keen to see a BFN on a test. I still have my positive tests from Mila, that's probably a bit weird (at least they are the kind with caps over the test strip!) but I couldn't bring myself to throw away what was essentially the first time I knew about her.
@ khaatje, do you mind me asking what country you are in? If I was a local it would be very similar here in terms of gossip I am sure. Heck there is enough of that as it is! I am just very glad we are married this time round. We were unmarried when I was pregnant in Malaysia and even though it is a pretty liberal state, the gossip was... not nice. I have actually ordered a bunch of pregnancy tests and prenatals online. I couldn't get them shipped directly here but had them sent to a friend in the UK. She sent them on to me about 2-3 weeks ago now, I think (I have a crap memory for these things). So in theory they could be here soon but sometimes mail is delayed by up to a couple of months - I'm not going to hold my breath.
@ frangipani, hello and welcome! I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I am from New Zealand too, I'm a Wellingtonian born and bred. I still love Welly and miss living there so much.

@Alzora, haha yeah I suppose Winter in NZ is kinda Narnian!! My parents eventually discovered that my Mum had only half a uterus. Soon after they stopped ttc and gave up hope she fell pregnant. Btw I second what many of the nameberrys have already said about you being so kind to others and taking such an interest in their stories. It is lovely, thank you. I don't plan to start with any strategies other than keeping track of my cycle and trying every second day or so before ovulation. My cycles are pretty regular so I do have a fair idea about when to try. If we don't fall pregnant in a few months we may relook at that strategy. Good on ya for trying to go with the spontaneous approach. I'm hoping you get a bfp this month
@sarahmezz, I can understand how your Mum would take that cautious approach, even when its not totally rational. Parents hate seeing there children hurt and not being able to help. That's good to hear it's not hereditary. So hoping you get preggers soon, then you and your Mum could have many chats over baby names. I'm sure she will be delighted to be a Grandmother.
@Milasmama, I can see how you love Wellington. How long have you lived out of NZ? Your symptoms are sounding positive , very excitingMumma of 3 Angel babies, Lani (my heavenly flower), Charlie (my free little one) and Brennan (my brave teardrop) xxx

@sarahmezz & milasmamma; the marriage certificate issues are Moroccan. We recently moved and now live in the Netherlands, no more problems with certificates but like any immigrant neigbourhood, the gossip is actually worse! (We still need to choose a name of the Moroccan list as our baby will have Moroccan nationality). B.t.w. I used to work in Malaysia milasmamma, but from what I understood the "liberal" rules only apply to non-muslims? When will you likely have your test done? I am so excited for you!
@frangipani; welcome! I am sorry to hear about your mc. July is only two days away and I hope it will bring a all's well that ends well to your story!
We posted about about sisters and friends being all excited about their pregnancies and how this can be hard on us ttc-berries sometimes before. Today one of my best friends called me, told me she was pregnant and then started complaining about it! She really wanted this baby but just felt really tired from the pregnancy which I understand but still it felt like a double stab to the heart. I already felt sad before she called, because I woke up not feeling pregnant. I know its way to early to give up on this cycle (DPO7) so I am trying to forget about it now...

@Daisychain, that is definitely an intelligible question, and one I hadn't even thought of. Personally, I suspect that my husband has a low sperm count, so I consider Pre-Seed a necessary aid, but if his sperm quality is poor...well that's something I hadn't even considered!
@Frangipani, you're so sweet! So wait...your mom carried you to term with only half a uterus?!
@Khaatje, isn't it so annoying to hear people complain about pregnancy symptoms? That's one thing I have a really hard time swallowing. It's one thing to complain to your significant other, your mother, or your doctor...but anything more than that is poor taste. So you're 7 DPO...you and I are very close. I didn't test this month so I don't know exactly when I ovulated, but I am 5-7 DPO. My cycle length is irregular, varying between 24-31 days, so you and I probably won't always be in sync, but it's kind of nice to have a TTC buddy for this cycle's two-week wait. I too woke up today feeling not pregnant and have already commenced whining to my husband about it. I'm bracing myself for the eleventh blow.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.
