  • A question for all of the TTC "experts"?

    I suffered from a blighted ovum and had to have a D&E on May 20, 2010. My period came back 32 days later on June 25th. That is withing the normal range of your period returning. I wasn't sure how long my cycles would be now, because I know the miscarriage and d&e may make my cycle "off" for a while, either longer or shorted. Well today is cycle day 32 and I still havn't gotten my period. I was most definitely TTC this month. I took a test last Friday, which was cycle day 29 and it was negative. If I were pregnant, I would think it would have showed a positive by now. Should i call my doctor if I don't get my period in the next week? Today is already day 32 and my old cycles used to be 27-28 days. I guess inside I am hoping the test was wrong but i know that it's doubtful. Any other ladies been through this before and if so what was the outcome??

  • is it possible to start your period 8 days after a d&e?

    On May 25th I had to have a D&E after finding out the week before (at 12 weeks) that I had an empty sac, the baby never developed but the other material did. I had no idea because I had no bleeding prior to finding this out. They schedule me for a D&E, which I had to wait 5 days for, although I still had no bleeding yet when I went in for the procedure. After it was done, I had like maybe 2 tiny spots of blood that day and nothing at all after that. Now it is 8 days past my D&E and I started bleeding bright red blood and it's sort of heavy. Is that my period already? From what iw as told and what i have read online, it takes 4-6 wks for your body to regulate itself and for your period to come back, and it can even take longer than that sometimes. So I am confused over why i would be bleeding now... anyone out there with a similar circumstance? I want to try again as soon as possible but I don't know what my body is doing right now...

  • early screening for downs syndrome... question...?

    I have an appointment this week for the second part of the early screening which is an ultrasound where they measure the baby and determine my risk. I have BCBS of Delaware insurance and every time I call they won't tell me if they will cover it or not they just tell me they cover one ultrasound unless more are "medically necessary". Well this one is optional and I found out it's billed as "elective screening". Does that mean they will cover this one, being as though it's the first one, and then maybe cover the one every woman has around 20 weeks because that one IS necessary?? Or will they deny this one because of how it's billed. Any ladies out there with BCBS who can give me some advice????

  • 5 1/2 weeks pregnant, just worried about some things...?

    I am 30 years old and this is my first pregnancy. I had a feeling that I was pregnant before I even took the test because my breasts were sore like they usually were before my period, but in a different way. Just yesterday, my breasts pretty much stopped hurting. I am kind of upset and worried because that was my only symptom. I have not been tired, and have actually had more energy than usual and don't feel tired at night anymore. Before i got pregnant it was all I could do to stay up until 10pm and now I am still up reading and everything else until 12pm or later! This all seems highly unusual to me. I know that everyone is different, but at the same time I seem to be getting all of the symptoms, but opposite!! Has anyone else been through this? Personal opinions only please I have already read up on this so please don't tell me to go read something else I want to hear from someone who has actually been through this... thanks!

  • I thought I may be pregant, then I got my period, which suddenly stopped after 2 days?

    I have been TTC for about 4 months now, have been off my birth control pill now about 4 months. I was on the pill for about 12 years, and surprisingly, my cycle has been a perfect 28 days ever since. This month, oddly enough I had no symptoms of my period coming, which was strange. Usually my boobs get sooo sore, and I feel crappy. This month I felt fine other than being extremely tired, but no sore boobs or cramps or anything. Then my period was one day late, which gave me hope! Then a day and a half late, my period started so I figured yet another month with no luck. But then something wierd happened, which was that I had a normal period for 2 days and it stopped suddently. No brown blood, it just stopped and now I have no bleeding. The blood I had for the 2 days was like normal period blood, not very heavy but I don't usually have a heavy flow anyway. Usually it stops over the period of 2-3 days, and this time it just went away 2-3 days before it normally would. My question is has this ever happened to anyone before? If so were you pregnant? I can take a test when I get home, I just wanted to see if this situation is similar to anyone elses, thanks!

  • TTC..a question for the experts on your cervix!!?

    I went off the pill in Oct, and have been reading about charting your cycle. I did not do the temperature thing, but have been keeping a look out for CM and cervix position. Since charting this stuff, I had not ever seen the "egg white CM" and all of a sudden there it was on the 15th!! Let me back up, I started my last period on Jan 2. I looked at an ovulation calendar and it said I should ovulate anywhere from the 12th-15th. I had sex on the 8th, 10th, 13th twice and the 15th which is the day I saw the stretchy CM. Then I had sex again on the 17th for good measure.

    Today I had some creamy white CM, so I checked my cervix and it's high and incredibly soft. Is this a good sign????? I know it's too early for implantation, but I wanted to know if a high soft cervix is a sign of pregnancy along with creamy CM?? Please let me know!!

  • 16 days late, negative HPT, wierd symtoms..?

    I asked this question a week ago, not many people answered, so hoping for more answers this time.

    I have been on BC pills for about 12 years, but have always messed up on taking them. I am 30 now, so I was only half heartedly taking them anyway, just too much of a coward to stop!

    So last month I messed up on them pretty badly, forgot about 3-4 pills, started spotting a bit so I resumed taking them ( I know, I know you are not supposed to do that)

    My period was supposed to come on Oct. 13, but nothing yet, and I should add this is the very first time I have ever missed my period in my entire life. I have a few wierd symptoms that i have never had before such as very sensitive nipples and after I eat I become so bloated I need to unbutton and unzip my pants. As I am sitting here now I have this really crappy feeling like my boobs are pressing on my stomach and thats because my stomach is bloated and I don't know how else to describe it. I just recently became kind of constipated, but other than that I feel fine. I have been wearing leggins alot because jeans are so uncomfortable right now. I have taken 5 HPT and they say negative, but I sort of "feel" like something could be wrong or different. I have never been pregnant before so maybe I am crazy!! Please tell me your thoughts!!!

  • Need advice from people who have had similar experience..?

    Hi, i am 30 years old, have been on the pill for about 13 years, and never had a pregnancy scare in my life. I have never missed my period in my life either, although i have to admit I frequently forget to take a pill or 2 here and there. I have been in a committed relationship for 7 years now so pregancy is not necessarily a bad thing. Ok this is my experience so far..

    I forgot to take 2 pills in the middle of the month, I started spotting so i realized what i did ad resumed taking the pills. My period was supposed to come this past Thursday but it has at times come on Friday, so when Saturday came it had me concerned. I took a pregancy test on Sunday (dollar store) and it was neg. I really have no symtoms except feeling overly tired at time, and for the first time in my life I experienced acid indegestion. I didn't even know what it was, because like I said it has never happened before, not it happens daily. My breasts are not sore, and there are no other feelings I am having other than being concerned and anxious. I called the doctor b/c I was supposed to start taking my pill this past Monday, and they said do not take them since I have had unprotected sex this month, and there is a "risk" of pregnancy. They said wait a week and retest, as it may be too soon. Has anyone else ever had this type of situation happen, and they turned out pregnant, or it turned out they weren't??? It is just super wierd b/c like I said I have never missed my period in my entire life!!

  • lexapro and weight loss?

    Has anyone lost weight on Lexapro? I have been taking for a little over a month and I have lost 15 pounds! I have not changed my eating habits, or possibly I ate more than usual. I just came back from a vacation in Mexico and it was all inclusive so I may have actually eaten more than I usually would, but still the weight loss...

  • Burn hole in the headliner of my car?

    Does anyone know how to hide a burn hole in the headliner of my car, it's near the window. My headliner is gray and I just need to hide it mostly because it is a leased car. I would think the patch kits that come with a screen would be hard to use seeing as though it needs to be applied upside down since the hole is on the headliner of the car. Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions!

  • A decent diet pill?? ?

    I am about to go on a trip to Cancun in February. It's an all inclusive and that means i will be eating a lot, b/c i like to eat! I am 5'9" and 165 pounds and generally happy with my weight. However, i would like to loose about 10-15 pounds prior to my trip b/c I know I will gain weight while I am away. Last time I went on a cruise, i packed on 11 pounds in 11 days so I just want to be ready this time. I would like to hear from any of you who has tried a good diet pill, and if it has worked for you. I just need to supress my appetite and loose 10-15 lbs. temporarily. Hoodia did not work for me in the past, I need something hard core, I am always hungry!!

  • Trying to pick between Cancun, Mexico and Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic...?

    So I thought I had talked my friend into going to Puerto Plata yesterday, then she e mails me today saying the travel agent called and said there is not a good night life in Puerto Plata, it's small and not a lot of shopping. I don't even want to go shopping!!! I had gotten info on here yesterday that Puerto Plata has a good party scene for 30 something singles, now the travel agent is messing everything up!! Is Cancun better? I feel like it's gonna be a bunch of 18 yr olds and not my type of place. I want an adult atmosphere, people around 30, and good party spots. Please let me know if you have any info!!!

  • I have a Brussels Griffon with a strange coat....?

    My little boy is almost 1yr old now. I bought him as a rough, although this hair doesn't grow very long like my other Griffon. He is black and red/tan and has scruffy hair around his face, even a beard like my other one, although his body has course hairs that lay sort of like a smooth. Has anyone seen this before? I thought his hair would grow longer but it hasn't?
