TTC number 2, my story


Hi ladies
Here is my story so far
We are onto cycle 9. When trying for our second I was so nieive as I thought it would happen more or less right away as it did with my first, with my first our first month we didnít really try as we had family issues which made my mind elsewhere and the second month we tried properly we conceived and I sort of thought it would be pretty quick again. We were not ready for another till end of last year and now itís taking so long Iím worried the time gap will be way too big (dd is 5 now) Iím 35 next month and saw my gp a few weeks ago who has referred me right away which also worries me. I feel the more I worry itís not doing me any good ! Iíve tried concive plus, pregnacare pre conception and dh has taken well man conception. I know no one can give me answers but felt I wanted to share x

Hi mme, Im also ttc number 2. We had a difficult time ttc for DS - from the time we decided ttc until we got DS in our arms was 4 years and 2 losses later. But he was worth it! I had hoped that was all behind me and just bad luck, which is what every doctor had told me. We decided to ttc number 2 and caught 2nd month but unfortunately we miscarried at 6 weeks. One year later and still no bfp. I haven't had the courage to go to the doctor yet. I'm 37 so I am worried that maybe DS was just a fluke. I hope you get your little one soon!

Iím sorry to hear that flou. These past 8 months have felt like forever.
I have ordered pre seed which I plan to alternate with conceive plus, I have also ordered some omega 3 fish oil capsules which I plan on taking when they arrive. I will try anything at this stage !

Also TTC#2 here. Getting pregnant with our first was a long ordeal with 4 years TTC and eventually he was conceived via IVF. Our chances of natural conception aren't impossible but are slim with male factor issues. But we're giving it a go until we can afford a frozen embryo transfer next year. Feel like I've forgotten so much of what I learnt before. Just ordered some prenatal vitamins for example after remembering I really ought to be taking those when TTC! Best of luck to everyone xx

How long have you been TTC ?
I have my first blood test in 2 days then again at cd 22. Hubby is waiting an appointment this go for sperm analysis so at the minute we are clueless as to wether anything is not right with either of us.

This is our first proper cycle TTC again but we've been NTNP since our son was born and not even a hint of a bfp. But then my sex drive hasn't been brilliant so we haven't really given ourselves a huge chance. My husband's count, motility and morphology are all low so our odds aren't great at all but got to have hope right? And if nothing happens naturally then we will have our FET next year. Good luck for your blood test and your Hubby's SA!

Hey mme
Bringing good luck ttc vibes I was with you through the first here's to the second. I so want to start ttc for #2 but hubby still isn't 100% ready same as first time round
I'll be here for your journey Hun xx

Infact ladies I've just st read through all your ordeals & what a little late lovely group i can feel this will be. My story ttc #1 roughly a year of ttc before finally getting our BFP unfortunately that ended in a missed miscarriage at 11 weeks 3 days. We the got our BFP with our DD 3-4 months later.
Now using the pull out method but me really wanting to start ttc #2 just have to wait for hubby to come round.hopefully not to long to wait till we can try. Good luck to everyone

I'm TTC#2 also. On cycle 12 at mo with a few months NTNP before that. My daughter is 7 now & I worry the age gap is getting bigger now, she talks often about having a brother or sister too! It only took 3 cycles to fall pregnant with her so I'm really worried why its taking so long. I've had a blood test & a scan which was fine & just waiting on hubbys sperm analysis results now which we should have any day!
