Just a question. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for a year now. In January I was diagnosed with an inderactive thyroid, I am now taking medication for it. My dr. thought that is why I was not ovulating. I did five rounds of clomid and I ovulated with the help of the drug but did not get pregnant. Now my dr. has refered me to a specialist b/c she thinks something else is wrong. I don't think I will ovulate without the clomid and she would not let me take another round of it even though you can take it for 6 months. Has anyone else been in this situation and gotten pregnant at some point? I am 31 and I am starting to think that maybe I am just not meant to be a mother. My husband says I need to relax....

Hello everyone, i'm Brittany. I'm 22 years old, an i just recently got married to my wonderful husband Ryan in April of this year! we've been trying to conceive since February, an still no luck. :/ i have been so busy with work an school, that i honestly forgot when my last period was, but my husband swears up an down that it hasn't came at all this month. (he's usually pretty good with remember dates & stuff) i went to the bathroom yesterday, an i wiped an had just a little spec of blood on the toilet paper, so i began to think automatically 'implantation bleeding' but i just let it go, an figured if it happend again i would look into it a bit more, well.. it never came back. So i just figured maybe it was my period coming very slowly.. then today, i felt super wet like i had alot of discharge coming out of me, so i immediately went into the bathroom an sure enough when i looked in my underwear there was blood, about the size of a quarter maybe a silver dollar.. an when i wiped it was brownish pinkish red.. a little of everything..but it's about 12pm right now, an i haven't had no blood or anything since i wiped at about 5pm. i've had very slight cramping, but not like my period cramps. i have no other symptoms.. so now i'm waiting to see tomorrow if it comes back, an is heavy like my normal periods are! does anyone think it could be a possibility that i'm finally pregnant?

Okay so i had intercourse 24hours after my ovulation day. my period was supposed to come on the 14th of august but it came on the 18th and it was pink for the first day only when i wiped. i begin have sharp stomach pains but they didnt feel like cramps. the next day when i wiped it was pink and brown with light red like how my period was ending. then as the next day came the pains didnt stop and i even took pills for them and my period became heavier. i dont know what it is cause if it was cramps, midol always help me but im still having bad stomach pains and none of the medicine is helping it. also i went to a water park yesterday and it was very hot. i didnt get on any rides but i became VERY light headed to the point where i fell trying to sit on the toilet, then afterwards i threw up twice but i blamed it on motion sickness for being in the car for 7hours with nothing to eat.
