Did all the preconception visits (genetic, ob, etc.) Now itís just a waiting game. Hereís to hoping!!!

I was wondering if anyone had used any of the OTC ovulation tests you get at the grocery store. Are certain brands better? What do you guys think?
Welcome!!

Did you take birth control? If so, I definitely recommend BBT temping religiously (fertilityfriend.com has a great charting tool)....I hope your cycles are nice and normal for ya, and that your TTC journey is a short one!!

So AF was supposed to arrive during our trip, but she never showed.

I took a HPT when we got in last night because it was CD41 by then, and I got a beautiful dark BFP right away! O! M! G!

I'm in complete shock and also a nervous wreck because I rode all of the thrill rides at WDW and even drank about 7 drinks over our vacation. I'm scared I've messed everything up! I quit "being good just in case" long ago...after 4 years of TTC I had had enough of that! But now I'm terrified I've ruined something!

This month makes 4 years that we've been TTC #2. We did tons of tests, meds, 3 rounds of clomid/IUI and only had 2 chemical pregnancies to show for it. In November we went to the RE for a consult and determined we would start injectibles. DH and I decided to take a break from the doctors, appointments, shots, etc until after our trip. So we haven't been actively trying since November...haven't been preventing either. I even finally agreed to pick up all of the baby stuff that was in the 3rd bedroom up in the attic a month or so ago.

And now this. I'm just in shock, and scared to death!
I just couldn't be happier for you!!!!! I totally agree with the others, I'm sure it was fine that you went on rides and such. And the alcohol, sounds like you didn't drink yourself into a coma so baby will be just fine (and it's still so early, so they say it really doesn't matter.

I'm just so excited!! I want to see a picture of your dark BFP. LOL (gotta live vicariously through SOMEONE)

Thanks so much everyone! The nurse called me back to let me know she received my message (I have to book the first prenatal appt through the nurse and not just the appt desk). She will be calling me back because she thinks my Dr may want me to go in asap to start some HCG checks due to my history.

We ran to the store a few minutes ago to pick up a few groceries since we've been gone for almost 2 weeks. I picked up another HPT and just took it and the positive line popped up right away and is so much darker than the test line.

Cherbear, I'll try to get a picture posted for you.

Hopefully I'll be proof that after 4 years of TTC and multiple tests and procedures, just "taking a break" does work! LOL!

I have to come out of lurkdom to say congratulations! I remember reading your posts last year when I was TTC!

Nope. No birth control. Which is good because I didn't need to wait to start TTC. We're trying the ovulation tests for a few months. I don't know if I'd keep up with the temps.

So the nice ladies in the pharmacy decided it would be a good idea to give me the wrong syringes for my new shot yesterday. Instead of a normal as I now can say "subcutaneous" needle they gave me a long a$$ intramuscular needle! There were some moments last night that I wasn't sure I was going to be able to do this I called last night and left a message for the nurse and she called me this am and told me that they gave me the wrong size needles and she would call the pharmacy and get it straightened out. Thank goodness and I'm glad I asked/ said something! I just picked up the new ones and all is good with the world

I have all my meds with me because I have dinner with my cousin and you are supposed to take them around the same time every night and I didn't want to mess up. Now I need to cross my fingers and get these eggs to grow and the follicles to grow! Pretzel time!

Wow, good luck Esbrick. I have to admit that sounds scary to me, haha, but I hate needles. I hope this all goes easy breezy for you!

Just curious- do your guys' husbands go to your appointments with you? My husband asked when my ultrasound was on Monday so that he could tell work when he needed to leave and I said he didn't need to come (it had never crossed my mind really), it's just a clomid ultra sound...it's not like they will find a baby in there! I think he maybe just felt like he should go at some point.
