WOW[:D] lots of responses[:D] thanks everyone[:)][:)]

I am really really working on being a positive person, it can be so easy to get on the negative side of things and I really have no reason to be anymore[8D] everything is going very well right now and I am enjoying it[:D]

Ann Marie, Yes I was so darn impatient but the IUD really bumped it up. I bled for the first 3 months of having it(placed jan 3rd)not to mention all the severe cramping and headaches. I have felt like I have been on my menses for 6.5 months[:0]ack!!! I told my ob that I would give it at least 6 months. I had stopped bleeding back in March and haven't had any since, only all the other symptoms. Dh is getting very excited now[^] I figured we would just follow the FAM method again until November but he actually suggested that we just start ttc now[:D] I knew I loved my husband for a reason[:D]LOL. I am totally baby crazy. One of my really good friends is ready to start ttc right now too and was waiting for me so our next set would be the same age too. She has to do IVF so alot more complicated for her. I can't wait to have someone to be prego with[:D] that sounds funny I know but I have no family around me, just wonderful friends[:I]

Okay well gotta run, baby is falling asleep in her megasaucer..LOL

Congratulations, Elizabeth! That is wonderful news!

Just wanted to add for you and Kim that I had my IUD taken out last week. I had it put in back in October, and have been bleeding ever since. [:0] My doc is not sure if it just wasn't put in right in the first place, or if my body just didn't "like" it. So, he took it out, and the next day the bleeding stopped -- finally! Anyway, just wanted to tell you both not to worry about it -- it was SO painless and QUICK! It took less than a minute, and I only felt a little twinge for maybe 2 seconds...NOTHING compared to getting the sucker inserted! I haven't had ANY bleeding, pain, or cramping, and I hope that you guys have it as easy as I did!

Congrats again, Elizabeth...we are all cheering for you (and your DH...[;)])!
