Anh-Chi is trying to conceive her first child with her husband. He is in the U.S. Air Force and their family is scheduled to move out of state at the end of this year for 10 years. She had her IUD removed in December 2008 and the doctors have given her two months before she will be fertile. Anh-Chi wants to have her baby while she is still in Sacramento close to her family and friends, but she is very afraid that it won't happen as planned. She wants their family and friends to be a part of their child's life if only at the very beginning. The timing of her pregnancy is very important to her.
Trying to conceive can be the most joyful and sometimes heartbreaking experience a woman will ever go through. When we were young, we thought it was easy: have sex ... get pregnant.
Just several days ago, I got my period. Yes, right before I was about to take my pregnancy test. I'm quite certain at this point that I will no longer "try."
It's the 1st of the month, and I still didn't get my period. What's odd is that my pregnancy test shows up as negative.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary this past weekend. We got married in December 2007, but had our wedding in June 2008. So we celebrate twice a year ... but of course, our wedding date holds more sentimental value.
My husband and I just found out we're moving to Dover, Delaware, in 6 months ... I'm not sure how to take this, since we didn't expect to relocate so soon!
I have only 2 more days left in Vietnam, and I'm so sad to leave this soon. I've grown incredibly close to my in-laws, and feel like I've known them forever. As an only child, I've gotten used to being on my own and developing my independence.
Although I shouldn't care what people say, I've always been the type to clarify myself. So to set things straight, I did NOT start the rumor that I'm pregnant just to make my mother-in-law happy.
My mother-in-law's entire life has been devoted to providing for her family and community in Vietnam, so she hopes to pass some of that altruistic spirit onto me.
My husband's family thinks I'm pregnant, but it's day two of my period, so I'm definitely not pregnant.
The first day my husband and I arrived in Vietnam, we visited my mother-in-law in the hospital. Luckily, she was discharged from the hospital that very day.
Right now, I have no idea what to expect ... whether or not I'm pregnant (even though my heart tells me I am and I've already told my mother-in-law that I AM!), how much longer my mother-in-law will survive, and what I'll gain from this trip.
It's day 5 of testing, and still no positive result. I could easily believe that I'm not pregnant, but I still have hope.
Conception Diaries' Anh-Chi has been testing every single morning in the hopes of an LH surge, a.k.a., ovulation. Has the day finally come?
I did my 5-day Early Pregnancy Test this morning, and lo and behold, it came out negative. Negative?! How could that be?!
Holidays have become so ingrained in our culture that sometimes we forget to evaluate their significance.
I have wonderful news! My friend/colleague recently got pregnant ... and she used the First Response ovulation and pregnancy tests!!!
