I'm glad to join you, and hope our ttc journies are short lived!!
I've been with DH just over 4 years and we got married last Sept. I finished with my BCP at the beginning of August, but we didn't really try the first 2 months - didn't want to risk being pregnant for the wedding - but more importantly our honeymoon - we travelled for a month - and the thought of being ill (as every woman in my family has been badly affected by morning sickness) was enough to put me off. Hindsight is a wonderful thing!
I went off in Sept after 20 yrs or so (with some breaks). My cycles seem regular enough at 29-31 days, so I'm grateful for that! Guess I don't really know what "trying" means now, five months in. For two of those we totally missed (what I think is) OV... But otherwise we're just BDing CD 10-20, hoping that covers our bases!
I'm finding it hard to stay positive, though I know a lot of women have been trying much longer and have struggled.
Yep - I know it's early but I've got a FRER one so we'll see!
Was feeling really positive, but not so much now. Felt nauseous for almost a week - but was really way too early for those kind of symptoms!
Feeling exhausted last 2 days - but that's not unusual for me
Feel very down and emotional, but that could just be the pressureof the whole TTC thing
We've been TTC for almost 18 months (with just a couple of 1 month breaks due to hubby having dental surgery and also possibility of hubby being made redundant) so feeling pretty despondant about it all
Hey Deb - I'm a couple of days behind you, but only have 26 day cycles - I'm going to wait til Tuesday to test - as Af should show her ugly mug on Monday afternoon/evening (well she has shown up around that time the last 5 cycles).
I'm trying to stay positive, but at the same time, trying to convince myself I'm out - to try and lessen he diappointment if I don't get a BFP!
A friend of mine got engaged on Monday (after knowing her chap just under 7 months), I'm really happy for her, but part of me thinks "Too soon" and another part of me thinks - you'd better not get pregnant first - they are planning on getting wed mid-April - the rest of me is really happy for her - as this is her first boyfriend in the seven years I've known her (she's 35), and she is really really happy with him!
I find myself being so so so jealous of my younger friends who are happily waiting to try for a year or two to enjoy the time with their OHs... I would never ever want to go back to my 20s, or even to last year -- too happy to have finally found my soulmate -- but oh to have 20-something ovaries!!!
Hi ladies, Just wanted to say that 35+ isn't all that late for trying for your first. Both my sister and I didn't get married until mid 30's and we both were 36 with our 1st. She's 38 and due with her 2nd only a month after my 1st will be born.
Good luck and I hope you get your BFP's soon!
