Hello!! My husband and I are ttc. So far this month I am 5 days late on my period. 🤞 I have been nauseous, super tired, running to the bathroom constantly, had dull cramps, and my temperature has been around 99.6-99.8. I have tested and got negative but I know some people don’t get a positive until later than others. I’m trying to stay positive but I’m starting to have doubts. What do you guys ... More
Looking for some insight from others who had the Paragard (copper) IUD. We are TTC Baby #2. The first day of my last period was 3/23. I had my IUD removed on 4/10 on presumably the first day of my fertile window. My period was supposed to start on 4/29. I see no signs of it coming and I had a negative HPT yesterday with first morning urine. Anyone else have a late period after Paragard removal?... More
Not sure if this is a unique thought process, but my wife and I have been trying to have another baby for a couple of months now. Maybe I’m crazy, but this whole process makes me feel like I’m just part of the process. It’s very unromantic, and one so far is such a handful. I’m feeling pretty stressed, and my wife hasn’t really asked me if I’m ready at this point. Anyone experience similar fee... More
Hello Mamas and Papas! My daughter is 7.5m now and I almost mentally prepared to start trying for #2. Those of you who have two kids under two years old...What was/is the experience like? Taking care of older sibling and being 1-3-6-9 months pregnant? Older sibling adjusting? Feeding both kids? Changing both of their diapers? Etc. Any of your advice, information, pros/cons would be helpful!
My sister has 13 yo twins who she conceived through donated eggs (with her husbands sperm) via IVF. Her kids (both girls) don’t know this but apparently her evil in laws want them to know. I think she should tell her in laws to pack sand but it would be difficult to explain to the girls why they can’t see grandma and grandpa anymore. Has anyone dealt with this and if so, how did you do it??
Hi, My fiancé and I are planning on getting pregnant in little over a year and a half and I’m looking for recommendations when it comes to preparing and things to do during pregnancy. I have two step kids but no biological children so this is my first time being pregnant. Any suggestions on books to read, websites that give you what not to do and what to do, etc. things like that. Thank you!
Hello! Okay so i had my LO on September 13 2017. Shortly after i had the mirena inserted. I am wanting to try to conceive another child in mid June 2019. Looking to be informed on ppls personal experiences or advice. How far in advance did you have it removed before trying? Did you have complications with trying after being on it? Any info would be great! I was informed that i could try right ... More
My son is already going on 26 months... my husband has just finally made his mind up that he really does want a baby #2. I want to start trying soon so he and baby #2 won’t be too far apart in age. But my husband wants to wait another 4 months minimum. His only reasoning is because if we are successful in the first try (like last time) the kids would have birthdays within weeks of each other. H... More
My friend has been trying to conceive for over a year now. Within that time she found out that she has PCOS. They’re trying another type of drug to help her ovulate, but it sounds like she’ll need to go through IVF. My heart just breaks for her, and I feel so helpless. I can’t even imagine how her and her husband feel. We recently found out that another one of our couple friends is pregnant ... More

“Trying” for our second! It took over 2 years being off birth control for us to get pregnant with our first.. my cycles were very long (41 days) and I had no signs of ovulations so when we found out we were pregnant, we were surprised and excited!! Now, this time around, my cycle is around 32 days. I am now getting discharge during “ovulation” at different times every month (give or take 4-5... More
Just curious what your thoughts are on age difference between siblings. I have two very different experiences personally. My brother is 18 months younger than me and my sister is 18 years younger than me so I have two dramatically different spectrums. My daughter is an only child and she’s about to turn 5 next month. My husband and I have debated about having another child but I’m curious if sh... More
Hello. My husband & I have a 4 year old son. Initially, I wanted to have 2 kids close in age. No more than 3 years apart. Well, our son is now 4 years old and I’d really would like to start trying to have another baby at the beginning of next year. My husband, however, would like to wait until we start building our house which would be in another 3 years (we’re working on our land in some... More
