Feeling so alone...thank you for this site!


This is obviously my first post, although I've been lurking on BnB for the past 2 months! My husband and I have only been TTC for 2 months, but I've been desperate to start trying for over a year so somehow it feels much longer. I have so much respect for all of you ladies who've been going through this for ages now, I don't know if I'll have the strength to go through the agony of TWW for many more cycles. I'm currently 9 dpo and haven't tested yet, promised I would wait for 10 dpo. Although now that it's tomorrow I'm almost scared to test b/c I feel like it's going to be negative.

Anyway, just wanted to register to say thanks for being such upbeat individuals. It's been such a relief to read the stories from everyone who is POAS like crazy, symptom spotting and other wackiness! Of course you can't really tell people in real life that you are going through this, and my husband can only take so much. I can have him convinced in 5 minutes that I'm pregnant if I go through all my phantom symptoms, and then he gets really disappointed when of course I've made it all up. My sister and I share everything, but she has a new baby and it didn't seem to take them any time at all, so I even feel isolated from her a bit.

Hopefully my second post will be to announce a BFP after tomorrow morning, I'm trying to model my PMA after you all! AF is due the 27th, so I guess the gig will be up one way or the other by this weekend.

Thanks for reading, and good luck to everyone this month!

Fingers crossed for your BFP!
I've only been trying a short while too, came off the pill on 20th July and had no witch for 6 weeks and now my bodies just messing me about. But I know what you mean, each month passes so slow. I've just shuttup gassing to my friends and family about it and my other half is just trying not to think about it all too much....I became a TCC bore! Really thankful for this site though.

Thanks Angel and WelshRose! I know what you mean about coming off the pill...I took my last pill June 30th and have had nice normal 29/30 day cycles since, so that is less of an issue. But what I wasn't prepared for is how bad PMS is! I guess after almost a decade of the pill I completely forgot what this was like. Last month when my boobs were so sore and my cramps came so early I was just CONVINCED that I must be pregnant. Even felt a bit queasy several mornings, and of course bloated. Felt so incredibly foolish when AF came, right on schedule! The only mercy is that she does tend to swoop in with a vengence, so no guessing around if it's spotting or a real period.

WelshRose - I feel like I know you from lurking in the June babies thread - best of luck to you!
