Hey ladies!! Good morning to you all! Anyway... My husband and I have been TTC since April 2007 (over a YEAR and a HALF!! :( urrgh!!) I have had a VERY irregular cycle for about the same time and it has been really frustrating. BUT....... my doctor wanted to do a blood pregnancy test 2 weeks ago and it came back with a hormone level of 14. So she had me do a repeat last week and it went up to 104! The OBGYN won't schedual an appointment until I'm at 1000 so they are having me go for another repeat this weekend. Hopefully it keeps going up!!! I had some cramping and I did spot on Saturday but it was very tiny... Nurse didn't seem concerned about it though. I am praying this weekend will bring me my GREAT news I have been waiting for for a year and a half! Wish me luck!! Also... don't really know exactly when I would be due because of my irregular cycle so I guessed around late June early July!!

Debi, if you got a positive beta of 104 last week I'm guessing you'll be late June. I just got my bfp yesterday at 10dpo! My EDD is the 4th of July! My first appointment is set for November 6th and I can't wait! We're going to get an ultrasound so they can date the pregnancy since we didn't wait for AF to show up after my m/c before we started trying again. I really hope this one sticks. Last time I started to miscarry at 4w5d, a week after I got my bfp.

Congrats ladies! Debi, we have been trying for a year now. (Had one miscarriage in that time, one chemical last cycle.) It seems so unreal that it takes that long, doesn't it? I expected to get pregnant on the first try, lol. Silly me! Hopefully we don't have to worry about TTC again for a loooong time. :D

my Lmp was Sept 24 and i figured i ovulated around oct 8th too so i am a July momma too. Mine is going to be a very long pregnancy as i have to wait till November 6th to get the blood work done again to see if my levels are high enough to do a sonogram of the baby. My doctor wants to make sure i dont have another tubal. Congrats to all the other July mommys.

I haven't even found a doctor yet, much less called for an appointment. (My last OB is in North Carolina.) Going to be complicated since my insurance doesn't kick in for three months, so we'll see how it goes.



Sounds like I'm not the only one here to have had a miscarriage. I just have to keep telling myself it's going to work out this time, KWIM? Good luck ladies! Keep us posted.

I'm feeling very tired, bloated and my b**bs are so sore. I keep getting nauseous but not actually been sick yet (though I've been close to and that usually hits me at very inconvenient moments, like when in the middle of a shop or driving!). The cramps and gas have eased off though.
