Personal Comments: My husband and I started trying 2.5 years ago. We tried seriously for the first 1.5 years during that time I took care of twin boys from the times they were born. I was part of a dream come true. I loved those boys like my own. I was deffinately part of raising them. Doctors appointments, colic, lots of ear infections and colds, extreme crying, christenings, birthdays and all other firsts. The whole time still wanting my own. Just having these kids with me every day helped for awhile to not feel that void of not having your own. But it didn't take long for me to realize that I still didn't have my own 1.5 years later. I heard of a traveling job by chance. Was definately not looking to change jobs. I loved those kids. I went to an interview just to see what it was knowing I would find something I just wouldn't like and that I wouldn't take the job. Well I didn't find anything I didn't like and they offered it to me with really great pay and traveling, which sounded like fun. I bauled over just the idea of leaving the kids but I wasn't paid a lot and I was gaining weight from being cooped up all day. I was stressed and worried I would never get pregant and I was up to 196 pounds. I was affraid of hitting 200 and decided that the constant thought of being childless wasn't helping matters. I tried the job still thinknig I wouldn't like it. I loved it. I am still there 1 year later. I tried to keep in contact with kids and saw them a few times but I think the mother just wanted them to forget me. Since they were still young enough to do that. With me liking my job so much and it being travel every week. I decided that it wasn't really the right time anymore and that I wanted to work for awhile longer. We didn't try seriously for the last year. But you know that thought just doesn't ever go away. I am truely ment to be a mother and the pangs and needs for a child are here again, tuging at my heart. I will try the rhythm method and let me know. Thank you for your support and answering all my questions.

Personal Comments: We are ttc #1 (for me) this will be my third pg'cy I have had 2 m/c last year. After 18mths of ttc I finally got pg with my son (who we named Darniel) I was soo happy so we started to get stuff really early. My pg was going ok with a couple spotting scares, then on Jan 02 2001 I started going into labor (of course I did not know this) my water bag bursted so my bil rushed me to my doc office where my baby was delivered. I started to bleed really heavily so I has to have an emergency d&c. I was 16-17 wks along. I got pg about 4 mths after my m/c and I had to get my u/s at 11wks and when I went to get is done there was no h/b so I had yet another d&c. They did test but all come back normal so here I am ttc again this time it has been 9mth since my last m/c and still nothing yet.. I am on clomid and other stuff. I am leaving this cycle in God's hands.That was my journey and I am still going.
