I took a pregnancy test and got a BFP. I lost my baby at 7 weeks. It was the most depressing moment of my life. I was looking forward to being a mommy and nothing would make me happier than knowing that I can get a BFP again. Ive been TTC for 12 months now. I pray to God that it can happen when the time is right.

I'm so sorry :( I pray you get your BFP soon. Have you asked your dr about it? Usually after a year you have some options to help TTC.

Thanks ladies. I havent been charting BBT or taking OPKs at all because Ive just been hoping that it will happen the way it did before..wasn't really trying, it just kinda happened. But I do need to talk to my dr. about my cycles being off at times. It can range from 32 days to 41 days. I have my yearly exam coming up at the end of the month so I'll discuss it with her then.

you should try it, and pin point ovulation, then you have a higher chance of conceiveing.

Best of luck to you.



My cycles were off, and it took us close to 2 years to conceive our daughter (a loss mid-way in between.) We used all of those charts and things for a while, but they just stressed me out way too much, I couldn't do it.

so you weren't really trying and it happened? I hear that is sometimes very effective because the stress levels make it worse. Thats how Im hoping it will happen. It worked for my sister and it worked the first time for me :)so glad you were able to have your two babies.

We tried really hard for a while. It was just too much emotionally for me. We backed off, and a few months later got pregnant.
