Can I join? I'm a BFP virgin
I came off Cerazette (on for a year 1/2) back in mid October 2012 and had previously been on Microgynon 30 for 8 years. I had spotting after two weeks of stopping, followed by a very light period exactly 28 days after discontinuing.
The 3rd of November was my last AF
I was convinced that I was pregnant and that I would be one of those ladies who get a BFP a little later...months of BFNs and I decided to go to the doctors for a blood test. Sadly, my HCG level was 2 (not pregnant). I still do not have any sign of a period. The doctor said to come back once I reach the 6 months ttc mark. I've never been so desperate to get my period! I don't think I've ovulated since stopping BCP. A few days ago I finally experienced EWCM (however the OPK was negative). I'm really hoping that I O'd!
I hate when doctors tell you when time is up ttc naturally. I would find another doctor, there could be something else wrong and by doing all the tests now it will shorten your ttc journey. Good luck! I hope you get your soon!
I have felt so alone in this process, so many woman I know have all managed to get pregnant without even trying. Even those that had problems managed to get pregnant before me. I still remember worrying about the worst case scenario after the first bfn, and my dh assuring me it was going to happen. Now here I am 12 cycles without a hint of bfp, living out my worst nightmare. Today I was so bored, I wrote out a detailed list of what I wanted for my baby shower. There's not a day that goes by where I don't see a pregnant woman and think why her and not me. I'm grateful this thread exists, I hope all of you get your bfp. When you do, please announce it, it will give me hope.
Hi Orchid! Dont worry we all in this together, we will cry together, laugh together and celebrate together. The good thing is we all know exactly how the other person feels. Im glad you joined... and you will get your its just so hard for us all to be patient!
It's extremely hard to be patient, especially when you have never had a hint of a just makes all the what ifs run through our heads non stop. it helps that my dh is optimistic I don't know if I could handle both of us worrying all the time.
Please can I join too? In a nutshell:- I'm 25, been with fiance for 6.5years, on BCP for 6yrs, came off 15th Oct 2012, had a withdrawl bleed, no AF whatsoever since before researching, I was silly + did loads of HPTs, all BFNs.
I don't know if I've even ovulated. Its been 14 weeks + 2 days of TTC, I know its not as long as most of you, but I'm finding it hard without a single hint of AF :'( had blood tests yesterday, gotta wait a week for results. I'm waiting for an ultrasound appointment to rule out pregnancy, and to see if there are cysts or anything.
My doctor seems to think I'm completely fine, which I could be, but I'm so hoping there is at least something wrong, so that I can start some meds or something. I don't know. I'm just clinging on.
I hope you don't mind me joining in, as I haven't been TTC 'that' long. I did a HPT this morning, only a cheapie, just in case. BFN again. I've never had a hint of a second line.
So many of my friends have 1-3 kids. All 'oops' babies. Only 3 ppl I know have actually planned their babies - just 3! One took 2 weeks (lucky!) One took 18mths, and the other one too 8yrs + 3 rounds of IVF - how different can they be!! And I have SO many friends that have 'oops' babies
My gorgeous niece is 2 in March, and I cried when my sister in law announced she was pregnant (with her boyfriend of like a year!!) We weren't TTC back then, but I cried my eyes out, really thought I would be first.
We have 2 other couples in our close circle. One couple have been together 5 years, and have 2 kids (even broke up in between) the other couple got pregnant within weeks of getting together, got married + had their baby all within 1 year of being together. When the baby was 4 months old, they got pregnant again - WITH TWINS!!! So they've been together 3 years now with 3 kids. Me and my fiance haven't long got engaged, have done everything so slowly, wanted to enjoy ourselves, get to know each other, live a little, and finally decided after over 6 years together that we would TTC, and now its not happened so far - not even AF :'(
Oh god I'm so sorry I've ranted so much :'( I'm in a bit of a state.
i haven't had a true bfp. i had multiple faint lines and when i thought they were getting darker i broke down in tears and was shaking so much. this was at like 3am. it was just so joyous. i really want that feeling back.
Mind if I join in? Reading all these posts, I feel so relieved to find people who feel the same way! We have been trying for just over a year, and nothing. I am starting to get worried that something may be really wrong. My husband wants to wait a few more months before going to the doctor, but I'm not getting any younger! It's true, every time I log onto facebook ,someone else is pregnant, not to mention all of Hollywood! I try to be happy for my friends, because I would want them to be happy for me, but sometimes I just feel so jealous!
Oh_clementine - did you complain to FRER?? I'm so so so sorry to hear about your story, I've just done a bit of stalking if you don't mind :-/ I want to slap those FRER people so hard!! I can't imagine what you must be feeling. And I feel a bit of a cow now for being so needy lol! But do you know what, you WILL get that BFP, and you will have a gorgeous little baby in your arms - we all will!! Xx
Sas3131 - shakira announced she's had her baby, ugh, I'm not looking forward to hearing all about the celebs giving birth - I did start making note of celebs being preggers, foooooolishly thinking 'if I'm pregnant, I'll be preggo buddy with her, + her, + her...' Etc! Cos I just assumed naturally being off bcp, and have unprotected sex would lead to being pregnant! Ah well :-/ xx
That's awful, Clementine! Maybe it was a chemical? Not that it makes it any better but I've never seen false lines like that (granted, I've never seen any personally, but stared at tons of other peoples...)
I'm so glad there's a board of people feeling the same way I do. I can tell I'm getting a lot more pessimistic and depressed lately. I'm not sure how much longer I can stand to wait. :/. And realistically, it hasn't been all that long. I don't know how people who wait years do it.
