TTC #1 Hopeful and Obsessed! lol


HEY LADIES!!!!

Me and Hubbie are on cycle #2 of TTC our first little peanut. Im 28 and hes turning 27 in August.

This cycle I started using OPKS which are very helpful in knowing when BDing is most important! ( its important daily..but...you know lol)

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

BabyC4Me, I AM WITH YOU!!!!!

I hate waiting. It's the absolute worst. My husband tells me to stop being so *******! (HAHAHAHA.... How does it edit the word S P A S T I C) But how can you? I've spent hours, upon days, upon sleepless nights paying attention to every little symptom and reading forums! I cry watching positive pregnancy test videos on youtube. I've cried more in the past week than I have in months out of anticipation and excitement.

I hope that you guys conceive! And I'm sending lots of love your way!

Hey Puma!

YouTube is my BFF / enemy ! I watch the pregnancy test reaction videos daily ! Imagining my own reaction and how I will tell my husband. It's an addiction !

He's so chilled about it and here I am showing him OPK results daily like " look look see ! It's darker !"

Absolute madness !

What cycle are you TTC on!?
What CD are you on ?

Our Husbands, as much as we love them, simply don't get into the obsessing like we do!

The is our first cycle TTC! I'm on CD 19. We've been together about four years and he was always adamant about not having children because he has an autoimmune disorder which could be passed down. Recently we decided to do some research and there's only a 7% chance it could be passed down and there's no chance it could come from my side of the family! We have a 8 year old son (mine from another relationship which didn't work out and the Dad was absent) but this will be my Husbands first biological child, hoooray!!!

I read posts all the time about how so many lovely ladies have been TTC for months and my heart aches for them! Just this month alone has been torture!

10 March - AF
15 March - AF Ended
18 March - TTC
19 March - TTC
20 March - TTC
21 March - TTC
23 March - TTC
26 March - TTC
Aaaaaaand we haven't tried since!

It's crazy because my uterus feels full and just yesterday I had my husband feel it from the outside and it's noticeably hard to the touch and protruding slightly. And I've been crampy! This is a sign, right?! right?! lol AF isn't due until the 8th of April so I'm crossing my fingers. I'm going to make myself sick if I keep obsessing like this! I've already used like 8 pregnancy tests :O Seriously, these negatives are going to be the end of me. I don't know exactly when I ovulated. The day I thought I was supposed, I didn't have the right CM.


How about you guys?! What cycle are you on?
What CD are you on?

HAH! yes they have no CLUE how consuming these TTC months can be on a woman!

Thts wonderful that he has gotten on board! You guys will be fine !!! No worries!

For the TTC days is that when the BD happened?

And i def know what you mean by" fullness" of the abdomen...I think that might be a sign? Bloating? gas? not sure lol...

Have you used OPKS before? They are a good indicator of forseeing ovulation, super cheap online!

I dont track CM either ...i never know what im looking for...honestly

This is cycle 2 for us....i went off BC late December 2015, Jan period was four days late. But Feb period came exactly 28 days later. March period was the same as well!

So i was happy to be ovulating and be on "regular" cycles....but honestly is REGULAR even a word that TTC women can use anymore? NOTHING is regular!!!


im also a member of the TwoWeekWait forum.

Great..another place to fuel my fixation ! I talk to my friends that have had kids and they say that I am clearly doing THE MOST and need to "relax and it will happen!"


GAHHHHH! dont you just hate it ! lol

Yes, that's what I meant! We did the baby dance! Bwahaha. Sorry, I'm still getting used to all of this TTC abbreviation lingo. TTC, BD, all in an effort to make a baby!

I found that website today! I think I also registered. It's awesome reading everyone's symptoms.
I bought an OPK kit this month but I messed up. There were only 7 tests in the kit and I used 2 a day because I was so excited. Of course, this lasted me a whopping 3.5 days and I didn't achieve a positive O any of those 7 times in 3 days. (See what I'm saying here?! I really have a problem)

Yeah...I really struggle with the whole CM thing. I looked up pictures and found in it myself to be adult enough about it to not be disgusted. But let's be honest here. CM isn't pretty, and looking at other womens CM certainly isn't pretty either, LOL

I give huge kudos to all the women who are fully aware of theirs though! I envy it, somewhat.

If the swollen abdomen is gas, then this is the gasiest I have been in my entire life. To be fair though, I have been kind of gasy. But this is a much different feeling. I didn't have it this early on with my first kiddo.

Are you hoping for a boy? girl? ten fingers and toes?

Yea the 7 test pack is def like 16$. So expensive ! You can get a pack of 100 from Amazon I heard. And that way you don't mess up and test too early or late and miss the big O.

Let's hope that gas is a baby peanut!

I want a boy honestly. My family is full of girls. I wanna switch it up. But anything I'm blessed with having a okay with me ! Happy healthy baby is key !

What about you ?

Puma!

Apparently my OPK was correct ! It was the darkest it has been for 7 days yesterday morning. Last night I had sharp cramping and tightness in my uterus. And we BDed and it was so uncomfortably. Assuming my cervix was super low. Which is good for easy sperm travel???? I hope !

Took another OPK this morning and it's lighter than yesterday's. So I'm 90% sure it happened yesterday night :-)

AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I literally just got butterflies for you! How freaking exciting!!!! I'm telling you, the cramping and tightness in the uterus is a sign! We absolutely must keep each other updated over our tww! My husband and I did the BD last night too and it was super uncomfortable! Ovia days that my fertility score was only a 5 yesterday but it doesn't hurt trying! I'm curious to see if your uterus starts feeling full like you're holding a melon in the next few days. I've noticed I don't have any cm and I'm super dry. I was reading that lots of women experience lots of cm before they get their bfp which made me sad. I did some more research though, and there are almost as many women who have no cm. That's encouraging.

I'm proud of myself though! I managed to not test this morning. I haven't been able to go number 2 for 7 days until this morning and even then it was really difficult. Apparently constipation is also a sign of early pregnancy. I'm trying not to get too psyched out. I'm probably going to cry a waterfall if AF arrives.

Please keep me updated on your symptoms everyday!

YAYYYYY!!!!!! We are still in the game sistah!!!!

I dont notice alot of CM either, like spilling into my underwear but ..enuff to get the job done tho lol

and I dont think its a legit requirement , just something that many women notice.


The constipation thing is def something to keep mindful of, unless you ate alot of cheese recently :-)

If that witch arrives DONT CRY!!!! just manage to believe that "It wasnt the right time!"-----sounds encouraging right? But im sure, no TTC woman wants to hear that mess lol

I will be tracking symptoms daily...even tho i know that will only make me more insane AND im home all week for spring break ( I work at a school), which gives me more time to google and be weird lol

GOOD LUCK AND DUSTTTTTTTT
