Hi everyone, and thanks for starting this Blo. I'm a bit late to the party but would love to join in.

DH (27) and I (29) have been ttc#1 for just over a year with not even a hint of luck. We have just begun investigating to see if there's anything going on fertility-wise.

I do tracking through bbt and cm and think next O will be around 13 June, so expect to be testing around the 27th.

mrsfrank - I feel your pain about the family members asking. We've only told a couple of close relatives we're ttc, but everyone expects it after a couple of years of marriage; I get asked constantly. It will be nice to share with others going through the same thing.

adastra - my DH was just the same before I explained about timing. Now that he knows the truth though he sometimes gets 'stage fright' on the crucial days. I'm more careful with what I tell him now lol.

blo, meepmeep and melissandei: my fingers are crossed for you! Let us know how you go.

Hope everyone is having a good day! DH and I start BDing today, so if AF doesn't show up I'll test the 27th. I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much since this is only Cycle 2. Last month I had TONS of wishful symptoms that by the time I tested and AF showed up that I was relieved. He just doesn't understand the emotional toll the TWW has on you. I think I said to him at one point, "You're not in my body so you don't understand what I think I feel and don't feel. It's emotionally exhausting."

blo, adastra, meepmeep + melissaandei - crossing fingers for you!!

AmandaGAC - it's so true. It can be so hard to explain the feeling of the tww. I feel ya girl!

cheshire - thank you so much! I have really learned so much just by reading about the different experiences. It feels so nice to have the support!

EmilyIGF - being able to talk about it, even in the last few days has given me an immense sense of relief. It feels better to not feel so alone in the journey. For the stage fright, I heard the cure for that is to imagine everyone in their underwear? ... or perhaps he won't have to?
lol. Good luck girl!

It is totally exhausting - and then when AF shows up, you end up feeling like your own body has let you down (or at least I do), and that's the part I think our partners maybe don't experience as much. I'm in cycle 4 of TTC #1 now - every time AF rolls around I say I can't do it all over again, and by the next week I'm busting out the OPKs lol

Agreed it is exhausting! Anyone else dream about it as well? I have dreams I woke up and took my temp and reacted to whatever it was in my dream

Aww! Sort of - haven't had dreams quite like that, but we are getting ready to move in a few months and I keep having dreams about trying to pack while pregnant or telling our new landlord we're expecting. Those post-o vivid dreams certainly don't help with keeping expectations in check!

mrsfrank - I'm so glad that there are others out there who are going through the same thing.

Gemini19156 - You are so right! The TWW seems like it takes forever when you're in that period, but then it seems like the time flies by after that and you're back in the fertile zone again in no time at all. But that is a good time for me to get my mind right and get ready to try again.

MeepMeepHP - I've not had any dreams about trying to conceive. But again, this is only cycle 1 for me. I may have dreams the more and more we try.

Yes! Last cycle I had a dream about getting a very dark lined positive so I was upset when I kept getting negatives. I also keep dreaming that I have a daughter so we'll see if that one comes true.

Ive had a few dreams - getting bfp's (even once at the office), being woken by my crying baby, telling family...
All of that was in the last 6weeks!!
I tested a big fat negative today, but its 9dpo so not getting hopes down at all.

Keeping fingers crossed for you, blo!

I'm at CD 11 and with O day quickly approaching we'll begin BDing tonight for the next week or so.
