Comparing these two rounds

How long did it take We started ttc in July 2007, treatments in August 2008, got first bfp 2nd May 2009 so it took us 1 year and 10 months. I threw away bcp in June 2010 because my body didn’t co-operate with them anymore, got bfp 20th September 2011 so 3 rounds.

  1. sooo exciting!! 😀

  2. My cravings have been exactally the same as yours during the first and second rounds! Weird! And the Braxton-Hicks this time are insane! Last time I could count the total number I had on one hand, and I usually got them because I was dehydrated. This time I’ve been getting them for weeks at the end of almost every day! Even through the afternoon if I’m on my feet too much. So annoying!
