@alzora -- I wasn;t sure when to take a pregnancy test, so I did this Pregnancy Test Timing Calculator (Pregnancy Test Timing Calculator - When Should I Test? | Countdown to Pregnancy) and it said I can test today. Just went out and bought a pregnancy test.
I am crying right now. It's mixed emotions. I have the pregnancy test. I missed my period. There is a chance that I can be pregnant -- a dream I've had since even before I was married! But I keep thinking that this could just be another month of disappointment.
This is it! I'll keep you Berries posted. Off to test I go.--CarlaExpecting a special little lady on April 19, 2014

Thanks for all the love, guys!!! I'm hoping that it's true, too, but I'm also really nervous...
@carlas... I hope that you have some good news soon, too!!!
@whitegold... I can't believe she said that to you!!! It's not *her* choice, it's between you and your husband. I'm sorry to hear that you're dealing with that :-(
@sophie... welcome to the group! You'll get the hang of the abbreviations soon enough-- I tend not to use them (with the exception of TTC, "trying to conceive"), myself, but the other really common ones in here are AF (= "Aunt Flo(w), a euphemism for a woman's period/menstrual cycle) and BFP (= "Big Fat Positive", a positive result of pregnancy). Good luck on your journey, and I hope that things work out for you soon :-)
@rachel... Hubby and I started out by not telling ANYONE that we were actively trying. We knew things would be hard with the Endometriosis, and I didn't want to deal with everybody asking me how things were going every single month. As time went on (after six months to a year) we told our closest friends and our parents; I have gradually told more people, but have still kept it fairly quiet. Most people who know me are going to be surprised when I tell them! When I get the positive result, we're going to tell our parents right away but keep it from the family-at-large until 3 months (I have a big family and if I tell anyone other than mom I'm going to get calls from great-aunts and step-cousins twice removed). Close friends will find out sooner, less close friends will find out soon after that, and our acquaintances (and facebook) will find out after three months <3Twenty-Nine year-old "name nerd".

Hi guys. It sounds like several of you have very promising signs! Good luck and keep us posted.
Welcome Sophie, and thanks for promoting the acronym review. I find it kind of interesting that posting online about TTC has become such a phenomenon that there's a whole specialized vocabulary. And in fact it crosses over into other kinds of forums-- like a wedding planning one I was into where people would talk about SOs and DHs. I always wondered-- why bother with the D? If it's an acronym for exigency, why not dispense with the 'Dear' and just call him H?
This discussion also gives me a chance to ask--What does 'rainbow baby' mean? Is it a much-desired baby after a loss or infertility? Or any wanted baby?
Isn't interesting that this specialized lingo has developed? It seemed so odd to me at first, and now I use it largely without thinking.
In that spirit, ****baby dust all around!!****

@alzora I think she will come along once the baby is here but she won't be ok with it until then. She thinks we are way too young (both turning 26 this year) but she wasn't ready for kids unt her mid 30s. Every person is different.. Oh well.
As for signs, still no AF but I'm sure she is on her way.
@knitwit yea, comments like that really irk me. It's between me and my husband.. I'm sure she will come around to it!Shannon, recently married my BFF and TTC our first <3
