TTC #1, too - so impatient!


Hi Ladies -

I'd love to join you in our lovely waits.

My hubby and I are ttc #1 , this is Cycle 2 for us. I did get my BFP last cycle, but unfortunately the little bean didnt stick -- very confusing though bc i got the BFPs @ 11DPO and 12DPO .. then bleed started on my expected period date -- so I think it was a chemical (4x positive tests!) pregnancy that was just very well timed - not sure!

Anywho - I am only 2DPO as of right now, b/d on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday (expected O) and Sunday (yesterday). I havent done OPKs yet, i stress myself out enough -- hoping we covered the bases enough!

our hubs can be supportive but I think you are all right in saying they truly cannot understand the weight of TTC on us women - mentally, emotionally and sometimes physically. its... a lot. So happy to have forums like this to chat away our nerves and support when needed.

How is everyone feeling today? Any tests coming up soon??

That sounds really awesome. So this is an exciting time for you either way!

dreamer429 Woah! That's a lot of BD'ing. More power to you! Sorry to hear about your last cycle. That's a big stinking disappointment.

AFM- I'm supposed to test on Thursday, but I'm going out of my mind. Stuck in a good old anxiety spiral. If I test and it's a BFN I'll just be anxious about whether it's a real BFN or it's just too early. If I don't test, I'll keep being anxious about whether I should test or not. I just keep trying to take deep breaths and realize that if I am going to get a BFP it'll still be a BFP on Thursday lol

haha i kno! but, I did the exact same pattern of BDing last cycle - so hoping it grabs hold of an egg and this time the egg burrows in deep


That spiral is a tricky one - its so hard to not test, but the negatives are so tough to deal with, then the hope, then the frustration.. I think i'm going to try to keep myself as distracted as possible until the day before AF is due.. but then again, thats all just words haha - when the time gets closer i'm sure I'll cave and be in the same spiral as you.

Thursday may feel far away - but its so close!! keep the faith - and load up with chores/tasks to busy yourself until then. Maybe a new book to help pass time?? Sometimes i get swept up in a story and the next thing I know its 11pm and time for lights out

Af was supposed to start yesterday and she didn't show, hasnt shown her face today either..still no bfp though. Not sure what that means.
I thought I saw something on my test the other day, but I was being antsy and looking before the time to check, and by then it was gone.

Claire_c Did AF ever show or is it still a mystery?

Is anyone taking any fertility supplements? I have been taking a prenatal, but I'm wondering if there's anything else I can try to increase chances. I'm putting DH on a multivitamin because I've read that can help.

I take a prenatal, doing regular ďfertilityĒ yoga stretches morning and night- apparently this helps stimulate blood flow to the uterus - I recently just started adding some Maca to my (whole milk) yogurt bowl in the morning - the bowl already includes flax and sunflower seeds which are supposed to be good for enriching the uterine lining. Iíve read that itís important to keep your feet constantly warm and I also read about eating pineapple (including core) from 1-5DPO due to the bromelain (helps with implantation). My AF isnít due until Saturday (2/17) so we will see if any of that worked for me this month. Most of those are really passive efforts so I figured it was worth the try.

Read up on Maca and bromelain - really interesting stuff!

I bet youíll get your BFP soon! You seem to be doing all the right things

Still no af, and I had some weird bleeding on the 5th. I took a test that day and it was negative, so I figured it was af, but it stopped fairly quickly. I'm not sure what to think of it. Although, this is my first month off of the bcp, so I'm not sure if it's just my body freaking out or what. I was thinking maybe if I ovulated a lot later than I thought, it could have possibly been implantation bleeding, which would explain the negatives since it would be too early? I haven't taken a test since, so I have no idea. I could be making something out of nothing (which im super good at lol). I'm going to call my doctor and see if I can make an appointment tomorrow, but it's a holiday where I am so chances are they will be closed.

Dreamer429 Hi and welcome! I'm taking maca too (when I don't forget lol) and I love it. Used it before too, it really helps with anxiety too so I love it even when not TTC related. Tho I need to find capsules, powder one tastes horribly and I'm not in mood to make smoothies every day.

CanadianMoose this is year 3 for me. 1st year after quitting the job I hated was like yay, let's do all the crafts. Then on 2nd I was like hmm maybe I should look for something I really love to do that could also earn me real money. Then on the end of year 2 discovered web dev and that it really suits me and been learning it ever since. But it would be lovely to have some reason to get out of the apartment occasionally. I do go for a coffee with friends but that's like once every two weeks because - everybody works xD

WeebabyMama sorry to hear about But heads up, we'll get that

Update on me, bit TMI lol Just got big glob of CM so guess it's time to start BDing and go into crazy TWW
