Ya it feels like we've already been ttc for an eternity lol. I'm hoping we'll all make it there eventually, one way or another. Baseline ultrasound on Wednesday was good, showed 19 antral follicles. I'll be going back in a couple days on CD 10 to see how they've been progressing. Will be interesting to see how many follicles the femara has me developing. Probably just one is my guess.

Puma I do think there is a mind body connection, so your body probably got the memo that right now isn't the time to try! I'm excited for you to get back to trying again after your move! Although I'm sure the break for it all is fantastic

hey yall


Hey yall,

I'm new to this forum. I figured I would try it out. I don't have many friends who I can talk to about it. This is my third month TTC, and the first month of me actually watching for my ovulation with a OPK. At this point, I am at 4DPO, and I know that's too early for anything to be determined, but I have googled every thing I possibly could on how to look for early pregnancy symptoms. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it's pretty difficult. I've only been TTC for three months, and it has been very stressful!

Any tips for getting through this wait? I already know i'm going to have a hard time waiting to take a pregnancy test til my missed period, but I'm going to attempt.

Any advice is nice. Thank you

Welcome to bnb Jen. I'm sure you will be pregnant very soon. The monthly testing threads in the TWW forum are a great way to meet new people and symptom spot throughout the TWW.

This is my 22nd cycle and I can tell you that early pregnancy "symptoms" don't amount to much and are essentially the same as progesterone symptoms that you would get before AF anyway. Enjoy your TWW knowing that you've done everything you can and there is nothing left to be done. If you try long enough you might even find yourself looking forward to the TWW. For myself, it's become a reprieve from stressful fertility treatments.

All the best to you.

Hey ladies, how are you all doing?

I have finally reached the point where I break down crying every time I see a baby or a pregnant woman. My fertility doctor thought it would be a good idea to send me to a high risk specialist to discuss things. Im sitting in an office full of pregnant women and and babies and I feel sick. I told my husband that I hate my body and that this isn't fair.

All I want is a baby. I've been having panic attacks and anxiety attacks and am on numerous medications because I can't keep it together.

Having a baby should be simple. Struggling to conceive is cruel. I'm so sad.

Hey puma, I'm sorry you are having such a tough time with things. I have been there too. I almost burst into tears when meeting my friend's newborn for the first time. Infertility really is awful to go through. When we first started chatting here I never expected that the 3 of us would all face infertility. Those seem like terrible odds lol.

What has really been helping me is that I made a friend (who I found online) from my city who is also going through infertility. We meet every couple of weeks and talk about our experiences. Talking about it out loud with someone who understands is really helpful. Before I couldn't talk about it at all without crying.

AFM we are on our second IUI now. I'm not sure what to expect. I have no expectations either way to be honest. My lining was the thickest it's ever been and we had a really good sperm count. But we only had one egg and the IUI was done too early (imo) so it could probably go either way. I'm just sick of this all.

I love you guys. Going through thus sucks. And it's different for everyone going through it. You're both in my thoughts often.

We're just ntnp, sort of tracking bd. I don't expect to be pregnant, but getting back on birth control seems pointless.

You both are so amazing. I wish I had someone like that to talk to. We were all drawn to this thread for a reason; this is extremely evident now. I hope your IUI does magic this month Belle.

Green, I know exactly what you mean. We aren't trying and just using the pull out method until we move. But if we can't get pregnant when intentionally letting our swimmers free, then the likelyhood of accidentally getting pregnant with the pull out method would be impossible.

I have cried every. Single. Freaking. Day about this. I also found a gray hair. My body is failing me. I'm getting too old. Ill be 31 this November and I'm pissed the fuck off that the one thing in the world that I want.... I cant have.

I want to punch women in the face who are pregnant and complain about it and who don't want their babies. FFS! Getting pregnant is suppose to be easy!

Ladies, we should all just fly to some location for the weekend and drink our sorrows away. (This is coming from someone who never drinks anymore). And we can eat pumpkin pie and cry.

Have you seen the movie Storks yet? If not? Don't. You will cry. The little boy is basically my son begging for a brother or sister. Hes going to be 10. TEN!!!!!! And he's been begging me for years!!!!!!!!!

Life is cruel. My chest and heart hurts. I'm so angry ladies. I'm sorry. I just can't stop thinking about it.

I'm so sorry Puma. With your autoimmune condition I can understand how you might feel like your body is failing you. Since we are still unexplained most of the time I just feel confused about why this is happening to us at all. That said you are not too old, you are only 31 which is an age that many women have their first baby at these days. What is happening is not fair and its completely okay to feel angry and sad about this whole thing. Infertility, regardless of the outcome, is something that needs to be grieved and unfortunately it is a grief that isn't well understood by many. If you need someone to talk to consider asking your local fertility clinic if they have a support group. While the chat forums (including you wonderful ladies) are immensely helpful I can't stress enough how good it has felt to actually say these things out loud to someone else going through the same thing. I'm now able to talk about my infertility without crying, whereas before I could literally feel my heart clenching every time it was brought up.

I can't imagine how frustrated you must feel not even being able to try right now. We aren't able to do an IUI for July and I feel like regular BDing is kind of pointless lol.. So we'll have our last IUI in August and if that doesn't work out I want to wait until December/January for IVF. I think for those months in between we'll just ntnp too. Continuously ttc is awful.

I'm here for you puma, whenever you need!

I am hopeful this cycle, on CD15 and had a dark OPK test result this morning so...within the next 12-36 hours my little egg will drop! So excited.

AF is expected April April 16th, so the TWW is realllllllllll


I have not had any ovulation symptoms but im sure thats OK...

just looking for some support this go around, I know its early in our journey but im a bit of a control freak and when I know im doing all that I can for a result and it doesnt work, I try and figure out what the issue was and try and fix it!

But ....we shall see what is in the cards for us this time! Trying to be hands off but my hands are never idle. lol

Baby Dust to all !!!!

xoxoxoxo


Hey, I was the same way 4 years ago when my husband and I first started trying. I was 27 then and just now turned 31. One thing I've learned is you really have NO control. I myself am a big control freak.

I've done everything from herbs, acupuncture, Chinese herbs, hsg, clomid, "relaxing", not thinking about it. 4 years later still no baby. We fall in the category of "unexplained" infertility" Next up is iui in August.

To avoid any headaches and heart aches I would recommend going to your doctor for a quick evaluation and also send your husband for a sperm analysis. It's way to early to say there's a problem but it doesn't hurt to let your gyno know you're trying. I wish you the best and I pray that no on else goes through what I have.

Lots of love Mandy**

Hope everyone is doing well. I'm on here more and more frequently these days. I've been stalking Belle and her iui cycles.

Puma, are you doing any better, love? Did you find a local support group? I'm right there with you ttc #1 and turning 31 in september. My mom was 31 when she had her 6TH CHILD. I can't believe I'm not a mom yet, sometimes.

I've reached the apathy stage, Belle. I stopped tracking anything, just try to bd every 3 days or so. At this point, I've resigned myself to never having kids. I don't think it's possible for us. Now, my mental state is, if we get pregnant, it will be a nice surprise. Expecting nothing of course.

Ugh. I think the 3 of us need to start a TTC #1 thread in the LTTC section. (Puma still with us, of course)
