Hey Ladies, well I actually just oed yesterday, which is about 5 days later than normal, but I was incredibly stressed out last week trying to get everything done by the tax deadline on top of getting ready for our trip.

Our vacation was wonderful, and I'm hoping the relaxation helped the egg meet the swimmers. It wasn't great timing, but here's to hoping. I won't actually be able to test until May, so I don't know that I'm an April hopeful, but I'll hang out here until the first rolls around.

My life has finally calmed down, so now I can really focus on my wellness. I start acupuncture again in May, and I can't tell you how ready I am for those appointments. Because of my profession, we aren't actively trying right now because a Jan-Apr baby would make things very difficult, but I'm still temping and using OPK's incase we decided to re-visit the RE in Aug. Luckily, my RE likes to see my charts and gives me advice based on them.

If hunger isn't the problem, then food isn't the solution!

Keep your diet clean and your workouts dirty!

I'm out. AF showed up right on cue this morning. Was starting to get my hopes up when my son told me this week I had a baby in my belly. Was hoping he was right.
Onto May for me.
Good luck to anyone still waiting!

Sorry SAMI. I think I'm about to be out too. AF is due on Tuesday and the emotional roller coaster has already started. I woke up way too early this morning thinking about cleaning. Happen every month right before AF shows up.

What didn't kill me made me stronger. I'm a very strong soul.

Hey y'all sorry I haven't commented for awhile. I have been around and been reading and I send massive congratulations to everyone that has had BFP's. I don't know if April will be my month or not. I am trying hard to focus on eating better, getting exercise and continuing to watch the numbers on the scale go down....Just finishing my AF though so I am guessing that it will really be May by the time I find out if I am preggo because its not enough time through April to ovulate and BD and test since its already mid April and April is a short month. But thats ok. May is cool too. Anyway hope we get some lucky lucky ladies this month. Because if not me, then definitely y'all!

HUGS

Well, looks like I'm out this month. I'm 9 DPO and have had some pretty heavy spotting for the past day or so. Heavier than my normal spotting but at the same time in my LP as usual so I guess it's on to May for me... I'll be having my annual exam in May too so now that I've been using OPKs, maybe my doctor will listen to me when I tell him my LPs are too short, and he'll actually look at my charts this time.

It didn't work out in March...so here I am again in April. I was supposed to try Clomid if I didn't get AF after 6 weeks and another negative test...however I got AF last week so we are trying again.

I concur with whoever said their friends have all gotten pregnant when partying or on vacation. My friend tried for a year and then went to Vegas for a weekend...lo and behold she got pregnant. Maybe I should schedule my vacation for the next 2 weeks and stock up on booze. (Just kidding!)

Don't live your life in regret, just love yourself and you're set.

Hello! We've been trying since the summer of 2011. I have PCOS and highly irregular cycles, though, so our trying is probably more for fun than anything. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I am working hard on losing weight and improving my nutrition specifically in ways known to aid in fertility and cycle regulation. Then I'm supposed to start clomid later this month. Hoping that will give us the help we need.

Good luck to all!

Good luck to all the April hopefuls! I also am hopeful, although I just got off my pill and don't really have any expectations for the next couple months. We are going out of town for a long weekend later in the month to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and then have a very relaxing vacation planned in May to celebrate our birthdays! I'm hoping with all the down time maybe I'll get lucky! You never know though... but wanted to wish you all good luck this month!!

I'm an April hopeful. Got my smiley face on Friday. I've got mixed feelings about it this month. If I get pregnant this month, my due date will be December 22nd. DH is a pastor so Advent/Christmas and Lent/Easter would be the absolute worst times to have a baby. Plus, I'm doing so well in my weight loss that it would be a little sad to have to stop. But we would be over the moon happy to have a baby. So whatever happens, happens. We'll be happy either way.

I wanted to be a February or March hopeful, but now that it's April... Now I am hopeful for this month. I am stressing myself out like crazy. I'm only 8 DPO, but I've already tested 7 times. I think I'm just torturing myself. Luckily the dollar store tests are only a buck. :) Good Luck to all!

Today's the day!

hey ladies! Although the hubby and I aren't actively trying, we aren't not trying (yea I know double negative ;-)). We are both really excited for our summer TTC date, and would both be thrilled if we got pregnant early. :-) Guess I'll go pick up some tequila and pretend we are on vacation until then... ha! The husband continuously counts the months and messages me (text, email or notes around the house) saying things like Christmas Baby or New Years Baby... he is absolutely adorable and I am so happy that he is as excited as I am. emoticon

This month is off to a sweet start - my best friends just got married and my hubby and I have had some good bonding moments. This is also the first month that I really want to ttc for the past several.

Hopefully the relaxed and happy moment shared with our friends will translate like a vacation with tequila shots as I entered the fertile window around the time of the wedding.

Runnergirl, good to see you - hope all is well with you and your little one to be!

Tequila and drinking is how my friends got pregnant. They had been trying for a good 6 or so months and then went on vacation and came home pregnant.

I'm an April hopeful sort of. My cycles last between 35 and 40 days, so I'm not actually due to test until May, but I'm hopeful to conceive in April!

Because of my profession, we're not being super strict about trying right now because a Jan-Mar due date would be tough, but we certainly would celebrate either way!

I'm due to be Oing on our Anniversary/End of Tax Season vacation to Mexico! There are a couple of girls from high school who would swear Tequila is the best fertility med around:)

So raise your glass to being hopeful!
