Trying to Conceive

The road to parenthood starts even before you conceive and a little support can go a long way.

Whether you're just starting to think about a baby or have been trying to get pregnant for awhile, this is a safe space to discuss and ask questions along your journey.

    Have you found out? I would say typically it dies not matter how faint the second line is a positive is a positive, however that second negative teddy is what is concerning me. I am wow about your miscarriage, but that wouldn't effect a test now. I hope you got the answer you were looking for

Are there any diets or fitness tips to help you get pregnant?

And how do I stay positive and calm while trying to conceive?

I’m late for my cycle!

I’m still wondering “where are you?!” No period since August 31-September 4. HELP!!

Late period but negative tests

    Hormonal changes, diet changes, and stress can all delay our periods! Take those into account. Wait a few more days and try another test, your body needs to make enough of the pregnancy hormone to show up on a test. Make sure the test is not expired.

Hello, My period was due last Friday. I took 2 pregnancy tests so far and all negative.

I am just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same or if anyone had a positive test after negative tests. I have no period or pregnancy symptoms. Thank you.

    I did, I got it a day later but ever since my cycle has been a bit off. I have read somewhere that my vitamins can be the cause of it. I had started that recently and I guess it throws your cycle off🤷🏽‍♀️ Have you contacted your doctor?

30 something, 9 yr old son, too late to have more?

My son just turned 9 and has been asking (begging) for a sibling for years. I did try and was not successful. 2 miscarriages. I want to try again but now I’m in my late 30’s and he is already 9! I struggle with this every single day. I’m 1 of 6 kids. I feel so much guilt not giving him a childhood with siblings. I would be devastated if I couldn’t give him any at all but is it too late?

    My sister is 40 with a 21 yr old a 9 year old and a 2 year old. Your not too old. Forgot about what society has taught you about what age you should be having babies and do what you want. P.S I’m 33 and have a 14 yr old, 5 year old and a newly turned 1 yr old.

5 pregnancy test, 3 faint lines, 2 neg, doc one came neg too but I’ve missed my period? HELP

    Sometimes people have annovulary cycles. It happens. Also happens that you could be testing too early. Or that you had a chemical pregnancy

I’m 11days late. Have nausea, mild cramping (more like a pulling/full feeling in my stomach), headaches, and backaches. I’ve taken 6 tests, 5negative, and got one very very faint positive yesterday. Show I take that as a positive? This was the best picture I could get.

Trying to conceive #2

Hello. My husband and I are officially trying for baby #2. I bought a TTC kit that has 2 months worth of vitamins with folic acid and it came with ovulation and pregnancy tests. Is there anything else I can do to help get pregnant? I got my first period last month after getting off of the Depo, but it only lasted for like 3 days. Also, any advice on having two younger children would be apprecia... More

Late cycle but negative pregnancy tests.

My boyfriend and I aren’t using protection. He is just quick about using the “pull out” method. He pulls out well in advance. I was suppose to start my period on the first but haven’t yet. I’ve taken pregnancy tests but they’re negative. I’ve been feeling emotional, slightly cramping, and tender breasts. But these are signs of PMS as well. I know stress can delay a cycle too. I’m not sure wha... More

    Both of my kids were conceived using the pull out method. The first time I missed a couple birth control pills. The second I wasn’t working, so no insurance and I had just stopped breastfeeding. Literally conceived my second the same month I stopped breastfeeding my first. Go to a clinic, and they will test for you.
