Aw, @loveday, it sounds like you've had a crappy day. But I am holding out hope for you until your period arrives.
@Lilysong, are you in the two-week wait? When is your period due?
@Saristin, my name nerdiness got a hundred times worse when we began TTC. I've loved names since I was young, but when we started TTC last September, holy moly. It wears my little brain right out. Sometimes I seriously exhaust myself with my name obsession. I wish I could change the channel in my head.
@Whitegold and others, thank you for joining me in my love of Pearl Minerva. Your positive feedback deepens my affections for it. (Haha...right back into my name obsession...see that?)
@Nowakasia, if you only missed one day in your fertile window, you still have a great chance of conceiving this cycle! In fact, that one skipped day may have AIDED your chances, because it gave his sperm more time to build up for the next day's attempt. Some people say you should have sex every other day in the fertile window. Wishing you luck!
@Andieta, I'm afraid I can't offer any tips on how to cope with the endless medical appointments. When I was going through mine, it was really my mom who took care of all the details, because I was still wheelchair-ridden and not functioning like an independent adult. I just got toted around like a sack of potatoes in a wheelchair. How many more appointments do you have? Would it help if you spaced them out a bit more? I know that would postpone your TTC plans... ...but you wouldn't be smothered with nonstop appointments that way. I know how frustrating it is to not be able to TTC until these things are resolved; I had that problem with vaginismus, and I was so scared that the problem would never resolve and I would never have a baby. But chin up, I feel 100% optimistic for you that you will get the green light very soon. (Also, thank you, I still love Narnia too...I love that one best of all.)
@Casilda, nice to have you join us! If you talk to your doctor about infertility concerns, he or she will know which tests to start with. You could even ask to be referred to a fertility specialist, which might be better. If your boyfriend has a low sperm count, I recommend using PreSeed during sex to give his sperm a bit of help in their journey, and having sex every other day during your fertile window to give his sperm time to build up in between attempts.
@Maggie, who is telling you to make a baby? Lol...that's awkward. Does your family know about your TTC plans? Are you open about it? (My family knows that I have been trying for 12 cycles. :/)
@December, Frankie-Jean!!! Oh my gosh, how precious and unexpected! How did you come up with that?! I adore everything about it. You also mentioned Dorothea, and I've never known how to pronounce that one. dor-o-THEE-uh? Or is it pronounced just like Dorothy but spelled differently? My husband's grandma is Dorothy, and I would entertain the name Dolly-Ann in her honor (Ann being my mother-in-law's middle name).

Thanks for your positive wishes ladies! I did not take a test yet even though I am dying to. I bled a little today, so I thought I was starting my period but it seems to have stopped. Spotting maybe? I feel like I am peeing more than usual and I'm very tired. Besides that, no other symptoms come to mind and to be honest, it could just be all in my head. I want to just wait until tomorrow or Saturday just to see if the spotting keeps happening or if my period is starting. Good luck to you guys, I will keep you updatedPREGNANT with our first!!!

@alzora, we had originally planned to start in early August (around my birthday) but I keep wavering. I want to start trying, but I'm worried that it will happen right away and I won't be mentally prepared for a pregnancy and another child. Especially after a particularly hard day with Rowan, she has been throwing tantrums a lot lately and seems to be exclusively communicating in whines. I don't know, it's a weird situation... I definitely want 2 kids, but I sometimes feel like maybe we should wait a few more months so Rowan will be older when the new baby arrives? Or should I throw caution to the wind and just hope it takes us 6 months to get pregnant? I feel kinda silly on this thread when everyone else desperately wants to be pregnant and I would be happy with it taking a long time. My best friend has a newborn and instead of giving me baby fever, it's kinda reminding me how demanding a baby is and how hard it would be to have to take care of an infant and a tyrannical honeybadger aka Rowan. Granted, even if I were to get pregnant in August or September, Rowan will have 9 months to grow up a little more and change. Maybe she'll be an absolute angel next June? 2 1/2 year olds are always angels, right? haha. *sigh*My cherished daughter, Rowan Jane. ~b. 10/2011~

Hi everyone, checking in!
Fingers crossed to everyone in the TWW wait. I actually wanted to report that (like beatrixdaisy) I'm two days late but waiting until Saturday to test. It's killing me! So nerve-wracking and hard to believe that we might have conceived on our second month of TTC. I'm so excited that I can hardly contain it, even while being completely terrified.
Sending out positive vibes and lots of baby dust!September 2013: BFP!!! EDD June 4, 2014.
We have our boy name, in search of our girl name. Why is it so much harder?
Current name crushes: Daphne, Allegra, Rosalie, Minerva, Alistair, Jules, Ellington, Caspar
