Clear Blue Pregnancy Test

My husband and I are trying to conceive our 2nd child. My period is due early next week and I will be honest---I am anxious and very excited to take a pregnancy test if I don't get a period. Clear Blue box says you can take it up to 5 days before your period is due; however it's more accurate the day and after you miss your period...just wondering if anyone has tested early and gotten an accurate result? Thinking about trying it...or maybe I should just wait?! My period is very regular...every 25 or 26 days.

Negative Pregnancy Test

Today is 18 days after having unprotected sex and a pregnancy test I took a little while ago came up negative. I am still nursing our 14 month old and my period has not returned so the likelihood I got pregnant is pretty slim. Having said that, I am definitely more tired than usual, and in general feel run down and "off". Most likely I am just fighting a cold/virus, etc, but I'm wondering if by now the pregnancy test would have been positive if I were pregnant, or is there still some chance I could be and I should test again in a week? ...

How Accurate Are Home Pregnancy Tests?

I'm a week late (now 8 days) for my period. But the First Response home test (not the digital but the one with the lines) clearly says I'm not pregnant. My husband and I have been "trying" for about 4 months. I'm turning 39 at the end of this month. I had a copper IUD in previously. The month after that came out I had a 30 or 31 day cycle. Then the 3 months after that I had a 24 day cycle (exactly the same each time). Now it's been 32 days and I'm still not having a period. I know that I should just "relax" and wait another 3 days or a week...

Acupuncture for Infertility

I'm wondering if anyone has does acupuncture treatments to treat infertility. I have read some studies and they seem to be promising. My husband and I have been trying for baby number 2 for 15 months. During that time we've done pretty much every type of infertility treatment - clomid, inseminations, shots, etc. and have had no luck. Our only other option at this point is invitro, and I'm not ready to do that yet. I'd love to hear from you if you've tried acupuncture and if you've been successful or not. Does anyone have any...

What Is Your Relationship with Your Own Mother?

I'm just wondering what relationship do you have with your mother. Mine had its ups and downs but lately it is a nightmare. My mother always criticizes everything I do: from cleaning up the house to raising my little boy ( 15 months).

She lives very close to our home and sometimes I ask her to come to stay with my baby while I'm out for 2-3...

Natural Ways to Increase Fertility

I am the happy mother of two beautiful kids. I had trouble gettting pregnant with my daughter (now 5) and had no trouble with my son (who is now 2.5, we charted, but I resumed my period after I bf my daughter for 22 mos and got pregnant in about 4mos). I badly want a third, and am not having any luck. I weaned him at 15 mos, but only got my period once. I have been under treatment for thyroiditis (but that seems to be under control now) and have even gone through several rounds of fertility treatments (clomid and menopur injections)....

How long does it take to conceive a second child?

My husband and I have been trying to conceive since April. We have a beautiful 18 1/2 month old little girl. I am starting to get a little down because it is taking so long to get pregnant this time. It only took us four months to get pregnant the first time, which we lost that baby, and only two months to get pregnant with my daughter. Its been nine months since we started trying. Did it take anyone else this long to get pregnant after there first child? Do you think it is time to talk with my docter?
