We have been having unprotected sex for 3 years since my second child was born. He was born Dec 10, 07. And we are now trying to have another baby now. My period was from April 8-13th. All month long I have been having slight cramps that don't last long and mood swings. Laughing one minute and crying the next. My period isn't suppose to come till next week. Could I be experiencing pre- period symptons or could I be pregnant. I really hope I'm pregnant though. Can anyone help with ttc or anything else. Thanks in advance.

Just a note, all my pregnancy tests came back negative with all three of my kids! Also you sound like me with irregular periods so I suggest having sex as soon as your period has finished because you can ovulate during menstration. When I fell pregnant with my daughter her scan date and my dates were a week out, so I must of ovulated whilst on a period. Fingers crossed that all is well.

I'm sorry your test came back negative. Way back when I was trying sooo hard to get pregnant & was stressing over it and when I gave up stressing over it and relaxed it happened I got pregnant, I know were all not the same but it's worth a try just kinda give up on the trying to think about it all the time.It's really not all that bad on having kids so far apart, I have 4 kids and the first two are 4 yrs apart then 6 yrs then 4 yrs again. Well I had 2 miscarriages between there but I believe everything happens for a reason so I say good luck to you and may the Lord bless you and your family!

Having no pms symptons except moodswings and feeling like im bloated. Got me a pt today got one with two test in it took one 10 minutes ago. And don't have the nerves to look at the results of it; afraid of the let down. I'm not stressing over it because I know it will all happen in due time. Will let you know the results in a couple of minutes. Okay test came back negative. = ( A little sad but at the same time my periods are sometimes late anyways and sometimes I have 2 a month or skip a month, it has been that way since Jan of 08. So I am just going to wait and see and if not then still going to have fun trying. ALthough we did it every other day the week of the big "O". So hopefully I will be getting the stork visit soon. If not still not going to stress over it all. Only God can jugde what is or isn't too much for me to handle at this time. I just dont want a big age gap between all of my kids. Even though the first two are 13 months apart. I don't want the next one to be five or six years behind the first too. I will keep everyone posted though. If anyone has any advice on how to conceive sooner all help is need and appreciated. In the meantime going keep doing the due as the say and enjoying it and having fun with it. Goodluck to everyone who is also trying to concieve.

Have you changed anything in your diet or excersice routine? Sometimes that has something to do with it. Or if you are stressed. When I was trying to get pregnant with my first baby (took over a year), I was given the suggestion to stop trying and it will just happen. So, I put it in the back of my head and I did get pregnant. Of course, it came when my husband was unemployed and I was working temp...just started my assignment. It will happen when you are least expecting it...Good Luck! Keep on doing the doing! Wink! wink!

Cheers

The spotting stop last night it was only when I wiped. Today I have a headache. Hope everything is still going as planned as I want it to. All I can do is leave it in God's hands. Keeping you all posted

My period isn't suppose to start till the 5th which is in days. But today I felt a cramping pain on one side but a bit stronger this time than the rest of the cramps I have been having. Then I went to the bathroom and come to find out I have discharge a faint pink blood discharge. I am sad to think that now I believe my period is about to start just a couple of days early but we will see.

hiya we are trying to concieve and unfortunate without contraception i think pms seems to be worse ,are you taking evening primrose oil because this can relieve some of the pms also increase green vegetables and red meat week before period because i find iron levels drop. you can and should be taking folic acid if trying to concieve .as for when due on depends on if tou have 28 day cycle i have 35 day cycle if you have 28 day cycle you should of been fertile between 18th and 24of april you can do pregnacy test that are 4 days before period but they are exspensive and if you arent and they come on its going to be kick in teeth wasting money.ive done it myself as we have been trying for 18 months if you are getting mid cycle cramps have yourself a doctors appointment just to make sure everything okay and if been trying 3 years would most certainly be going for a check up they saw 18 months to 2 years in uk .i wish you all the best as i know how down heart you get when you get monthly visitor when hoping not to see it and hopefully we will both have visits from the stork soon .

My boobies are becoming very sore too. I even been having that issue with my panties being wet all the time too. Is that a sign of pregnancy as well?

I agree... for me my boobies were sore when I found out I was pregnant it took me a long time to get pregnant I tryed for like 2years and nothing I think the more you try the more you stree your self out dont try so hard and relax try having sex with your husband because you want to be with him. Good things take time and will come in their own time. Good luck!!!

i was that way right before i found out i was pregnant usually the best sign is when your boobies have either enlarged or become sore, good luck, and if it turns out you're not don't get discouraged just remember to relax during intimacy and to not think about becoming pregnant throughout the act, at least thats what the infamous they say... GOOD LUCK and keep us posted
