Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
24/07/2013 at 09:45
I have just signed up this this as recently have been trying to have a baby. Initially I was trying around 14th day after my period but got negatives tests over two months. however I got the Ovulation kit earlier this month and it showed i ovulated as early as 9 days from my Period so we tried during this period each day.
I have suffered from swollen sore breasts during my cycle before however this month was extra swollen and also different from normal a lot of dark veins on my breasts i had myself convinced i was pregnant
I have a 32-33 day cycle today is 28 days into my cylce and im starting to feel the dreaded dull , pull of period pains
Is it normal to still get these type pains ?
24/07/2013 at 09:57
Yes, it is still normal to get period like cramps. I am on CD28 also but waiting til CD35 as that is how long my last cycle was (they became very irregular after my MC in April )
Good Luck xxx

Just an horrible feeling when you build urself up to thinking this is the month !
Do you find ur very emotional ?
24/07/2013 at 10:12
I know that feeling very well. Last month I was certain that I was pregnant again - well, I was wrong! AF arrived on CD35, but I ovulated on CD15? It does not make sense, but they say that your cycles are all over the place after MC - mine definitely are!
I felt really tired and emotional on Sunday. more emotional on Monday and yesterday. I feel a bit sick every now and then, but I felt like this last month also My nipples were very sensitive last night and also this morning so that could be a sign
I have to wait until the end of next week before I test - need to go past CD35 at least.
Have you got any other symptoms?

Hi sweetjudy21 ,
Thanks for reply ,,, i feel emotional too not sure that is just cause im upset and feel disheartened or just the normal pmt hormones,,, all month i have been queezy , and very tired but this could also be down too the weather as its been extremly hot and everyone seems tired,
my breasts are the same as you same sympthoms , just dreading mother nature appearing , have two step girls aged 10 and 6 and have full custody since March , got married in May and have been trying ,, im been a mother as it is and would love my own little addition to our family ,
I hope you are pregnant and wish you all the best , how often should you try concieve like i am thinking every day throgh your ovulation period and then every other day after it ??
How many months are you trying ? Hope you get a positive test this month
24/07/2013 at 10:35
Thank you and I hope this month is your month too! Fingers crossed and I'm sending a lot of baby dust your way!
I got preg in Feb'13 and had a missed MC in April 2013. We strated traying straight after the surgery - no luck yet. My cycle after the operation was 32 days long and last month it was 35 days long. Before the MC my cycles used to be 26 days (bang on) .....
We tend to BD every day during the ovulation period (sometimes every other day), every day for 2 days after the ovulation and then as it comes really . It was a bit different this month as we were away and BD'd almost every day
Are you getting frustrated yet? xxx

Very sorry to hear of your MC im sure you will concive soon , as you concived before so half the battle is won , im worried now I may have a problem , I have not been on birth control for 2 years but we were not trying before only really since May , maybe im stressing to much i dont know but yep getting frustrated like upset very teary today
26 Day cylce id love that im like you are now, last month i was 35 days and month before i was 32 , right now im on day 28
Thanks for the baby dust ,, just have to keep the faith , just still have the dreaded period pain now and dreading them comming wishing it away but cant change mother nature ,
let me know how you get on ill say a prayer you get a positive this month xx

Also have you experienced swolen boob and then the go down a bit during ur cycle ? like for last two weeks i litreatlly have had hugh boobs nd now it seems they have gone down a bit ? still very veiny but not as swoolen ? and still sensitive
24/07/2013 at 11:26
Before I got preg in Feb I used to get sore boobs before every period. Then in pregnancy they became extremely sore - the swelling and soreness went down around the time of the MC. At the moment I feel like the MC took away all the pre-period feeling - I can literally feel nothing! I do get a little light-headed and sometimes I feel sick, but in respect of my boobs I feel nothing! This is very odd indeed. Last month I got sore nipples and literally the next day they were not sore anymore.
Also I have not experienced any cramping since my surgery, until yesterday - had very bad cramps in the afternoon and still cramping a bit this morning.
I am sooooo confused
I think that it is easy not to get pregnant when you are not trying and BDing at the wrong times so I would not worry about being off the pill for 2 years and not getting pregnant if you haven't been trying. When I came off the depo 5 years ago I used no birth control for 18 months and did not get pregnant - wasn't trying at that time either. Then I went back on the pill for a couple of years and fell pregnant within 2 months of stopping the pill

Your body must still be adjusting but im sure you will go back to your normal feelings probobly just takes time
its mad isnt it we get so confused , over analyse things its like we get obsessed with getting pregnant well i am anyhow
we just have to keep the faith

24/07/2013 at 11:36
Yes exactly, I have to admit that I am very obsessed at the moment ha ha. I can't help it thou and the more I try not to think about it the more I do

Well any change ?
Im still cramping no sign of period tho on day 29 now , only think noticiable is an itch on my breasts / nipples not sure this means anything
25/07/2013 at 09:47
How are you?
Same here hun, sore nipples for 2 days now and a little bit itchy. I had a funny discharge this morning, had to put a pantyliner on. It was like a lot of white/yellow-ish (sorry TMI) stuff ..... not sure what that means.
When are you going to test? xxx
25/07/2013 at 12:24
I will test on Sunday but i do think mine are on the way , even got into bath last night cause of period cramps they stopped today so not sure , but my boobs feel like the swell has gone down the veins are still there is is totally unnormal ,
when are you going to test ?
Ah i hope it happens soon im getting too impatient lol and brudy and have a baby shower to go to on Saturday evening so will only make me want it to happen faster lol
25/07/2013 at 12:37
My cramps stopped last night, thankfully they weren't too bad.
I will test at the end of next week, purely because my last cycle was 35 days long and CD35 is on Wednesday next week. I think I need to wait until CD40 and test then if AF has not arrived.
Last month I tested on CD33 and got a negative and then AF arrived 2 days later. I was devastated!!!
Please let me know how you get on on Sunday - I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!!!

When I was pregnant I had this cramps till three months. Until I had my pregnancy test positive I was worried what will happen .when you are pregnant for the first time you have this feeling that everything is fine. With these cramps you feel as if you are going to have periods any moment.

How did you get on did you test yet ?
I got my periods so not my month fingers crossed next month is ,,,
29/07/2013 at 11:09
Oh nooooo, I'm sorry to hear that your period arrived this month. How are you feeling?
I'm still waiting Not tested yet as my last cycle was 35 days long and I'm on CD33 today so will wait a few more days - don't want to be disappointed when I see a negative My nipples are not sensitive / sore anymore so assume period will arrive soon. I have been cramping on and off since Thursday and have been feeling very emotional - had a little cry in the car on the way to work this morning
At least you know where you stand honey, you start trying again soon. I will keep my fingers crossed for you.
