@ khaatje, yup there are two separate legal systems, the liberal laws do indeed only apply to non-Muslims. Fortunately or unfortunately depending on your perspective I guess!
@ frangipani we've only been here (in the Maldives) 6 months although we spent 3 years in Malaysia previously. In NZ inbetween those places.
Tbh I can understand complaining during pregnancy - some women can feel incredibly rough/sick/exhausted etc and it's hard not to mention that to other people. I can also understand that it can be hard to listen to when you're TTC and I would certainly try to avoid saying anything to someone who I knew was trying to conceive.
I have a pain in my lower left abdomen tonight so am trying not to worry too much about a possible ectopic. The pain is somewhere between mild and moderate but not awful. Hoping it goes away soon. On the other hand I don't feel like I am pregnant today... Bluh, who knows!Mother to miss Mila Arden. Expecting her brother Cato Bennett in March 2014

I'm also about 5-7 DPO ( if I truly ovulated and it wasn't a false positive - surge but no actual ovulation ).
This is about our 10th month trying.... I went in to get my progesterone levels tested 2 days ago and will have the results on Monday to see if the levels are actually high enough that I did in fact ovulate.
Meanwhile just analyzing every pseudo symptom (too early I know) and counting down until test time! :/TTC #1

@daisychain: all 3 of the babies that I know that were born with the help of Mucinex are wonderful and healthy and perfect (one is my now 5 year old nephew)! Granted, that is obviously anecdotal evidence. But considering the amount of research I've done on other medications and things during pregnancy, I cannot fathom that a woman taking ONE single mucinex tab, an hour before sex, would matter in that way at all. I understand your question completely and it's a valid one, it's just my (non-doctor) opinion that it doesn't make sense to me. I would think that if it makes it easier for semen to reach the egg, the best of the bunch is going to get there easier before/rather than any of the inferior ones. Does that make sense? Again, I'm not a doctor and can't make any guarantees. After waiting a year after our miscarriage, approaching 35, we just wanted to do anything we could just to GET PREGNANT. As I'm sure most of you understand! But I'll be 17 weeks on Monday and I have my anatomy scan on July 16th, if anything isn't looking right, I'll definitely be on here again posting about it.Christine

@Milasmama, oh wow living in the Maldives sounds very exotic! !! Sounds like a totally different world, the way you have to have your husband with you when buying a pregnancy test. I so feel for the poor women who are the victims of rape, especially in countries with laws like that. They would be so unsupported in a very scary time if they fell pregnant. When will you manage to get a test? Oh and I don't think that's silly at all keeping your test from Mila. It took me a few goes before I managed to purchase a test from the store because I always saw someone I knew (small town) when I went to get one. So I bought a 3 pack to save having to try buying again too soon. Then I ended up using up all 3 in a matter of half an hour, just to be sure haha. I've still kept one in memory of my baby. Luckily I have been in touch with a lovely midwife who says she will deliver a free test to my door whenever I think I might be pregnant. What a sweetie she is
@Alzora, yeah my Mum carried me to 3 days before my due date but had to be booked in for a c-section. She was told that was a miracle that wouldn't happen again but she fell pregnant with my brother soon after (and he weighed over 8lbs) So I totally believe in miracles.Mumma of 3 Angel babies, Lani (my heavenly flower), Charlie (my free little one) and Brennan (my brave teardrop) xxx
