Have been NTNP since December. We both want children but have decided to wait and see what happens. Personally I am so excited, but after four months of unprotected sex you'd think it would have happened by now when you hear all these women getting pregnant the first time. AF just keeps turning up, such a let down.
Does anyone else feel this way or in the same boat?
Are you charting at all? Do you know when abouts you're ovulating?
I know people who have been using NFP to avoid for years before swapping to TTC- no slips ups before, and pregnant very quickly after they swapped- ie: just because you have unprotected sex, doesn't mean you're necessarily doing it at the right time to get pregnant.
I know DH and I only DTD about once a week at the moment, so it wouldn't surprise me if we took months and months to conceive when we're properly NTNP all the time.
I think I read somewhere recently that it takes on average 9 months to get pregnant- obviously some people fall much quicker, but I'd try keep up the PMA and not worry too much!
No I haven't been charting at all. I do however chart on days we dtd and the days we dont as I get bladder pressure a lot and have been trying find a pattern.
Around the time of ovulation I get ovulation pains for a few days, we don't dtd every other day, usually for a couple of days and then every other day around the right time. Maybe I'm not ovulating when I think I am?
But I think you're right, maybe when we do officially start ttc then it will all happen so quickly. Well I hope so anyway.
Also in the same boat here!
5th month NTNP...not feeling too positive about it either.
It's a shame to see all these damn high school girls getting pregnant so easily, and it's taking me and my other half months..such a let down. =[
We're NTNP for 1 month now and nothing, but we are going to start actively TTC late summer/early fall - so here's to hoping!! Throwing some baby dust your direction ;-)
Ps. I would really start charting your cycles and cervical mucus signs, as I ovulate only 8 days after AF has left the building, but I know this using my CM. Most ladies its 14 days so I missed my shot last month. Also, I have heard that if you take prenatal vitamins that helps you get pregnant quicker as well. HTH's! Good Luck!!
