I’m new to this community, my husband and I have just started TTC.

I’m looking for a pregnancy calendar. Not a journal where I have to write a bunch of stuff … but a calendar that comes with fun stickers like “pregnancy confirmed!” “told grandparents!” “first appointment”, etc. I’d like to buy this ASAP so I have it when I get pregnant.

Do you have any suggestions? My local bookstore didn’t have anything like this.

I know I just joined this morning, but I needed to get something out and have everyone tell me I'm just being paranoid. I started using OPKs this month. I know I'm not due to ovulate until somewhere around July 3rd, but everytime I test and get a negative LH surge, I start thinking "omg I'm not going to ever ovulate. OH NOES!"

Also, I'm a smoker in the process of quitting. I'm down to one every few days, but that was mostly because I was around smokers at work. I'm a social smoker. But now everytime I have one, my mind says, "That cigarette just killed your egg this month!"  Now, I've only got one more day left at work before I quit (long story), so I won't be around smokers anymore and hopefully I won't having any cravings because I do really well on days that I'm off.

One last thing, what all have you guys tried to boost fertility? I read some where that green tea helps, but then in another article I read that you should not drink green tea if TTC, so I'm le confused. :(

Sorry, I'm needy!

So for those of you who have had or are pregnant with babies i was wondering if any of you got cramps before you found out. A little like period cramping but for me it feels different. I am only 2 or 3 days past my miss period day so I could still have my period (crosses fingers i don't) but I was wondering if cramping is a side effect for anyone?

22nd-May-2008 10:06 am - High Hopes
OK, I know I said I would not get my hopes up, but I can’t help wondering.  Who wouldn’t in my shoes.  For those of you out there who have been pregnant already or who are pregnant right now, I have a few questions.  Besides a positive pregnancy test, how do you know if you are pregnant?  Do you feel any different, does anything happen with your body?  I am feeling pressure in my stomach, but it is not cramps, it is not painful at all.  It just feels weird.  My boobs feel a little bit swollen, but they get that way when I get my period, so that means nothing.  I got a few pimples last week, but that is usually a sign that my period is coming.  I’d like to think that my body would give me some kind of signs.  I am not feeling nauseous at all.  My period was due yesterday and I haven’t gotten it yet.  Last month I was a week late getting my period, so I can’t tell what is going on with me.  I am leaving on Sunday on vacation, so I really don’t want to be a week late again, for obvious reasons.  Of course, I wouldn’t mind being pregnant, that is the whole point here.  Please share your early pregnancy symptoms with me.  Thanks.

So...my period is due today, I don’t think I am feeling any period symptoms.  I don’t want to get my hopes up because last month I was exactly a week late.  So keep your fingers crossed for me!

More details in my latest journal entry.
14th-Apr-2008 12:53 pm - Anxious

I am getting so anxious, my period is due tomorrow, and I am trying to read all of my bodys signals. My boobs usually hurt so bad before my period and they hurt for a couple days and then just stopped, I have been having cramps on and off, I have been tired, actually I just woke up from a nap. My temp is at 98.9, and my cervix is very high and soft, almost so high I cant reach it. Maybe I am just getting to excited about every little thing. I hope AF dosnt come !!!
