Anyone else around a year of trying?


Hi! Anyone else coming up on a year of trying? Want to swap stories and join baby dust forces in hopes of getting nice and knocked up sooner than later?

A little on us, we're 30-ish and have been trying 11 cycles [less than a calander year but cycles wise we're there ]. We've had two confirmed losses [early, both before 6 weeks but both very loved and missed] last year. We're both healthy as far as we know. I've had short LPs in the past [9-10 days] but its been 12 days recently. Hoping there isnt anything really "wrong" with us.....
We use preseed, I temp, track cm and cp and track symptoms!

Anyone in a similar boat?

Hi, I am also in the about a yr mark with ttc. Me and my SO are in our 30's as well lol. I have a 4 yr old DD from a previous relationship and he has a 14 yr old DS and 5 yr old DD from previous relationship. In the past me and My ex husband were ttc for over 4 yrs for our dd, with no known problems. Fertility doc said we had unexplained infertility, tried 3 IUI's nothing worked. We took a break for a few months with the going crazy about it and doctor costs, he got hurt at work causing him to be home from work with nothing to do but umm me lol and surprise surprise we got a BFP when I least expected it. Anyway me and my new guy have been trying not using OPK's or temping just BDing on the right days and all ( I am pretty regular). But now since it is going on a yr we are taking a more active role, using the OPK's, going to be using Soy, mucinex, and geritol tonic starting on CD 1 when it gets here.
What have you guys been using to ttc?

Hello!

Sorry to hear about your losses Lovn.sunshine

I'm in the same boat as you both - trying for 12 months now and both me and my OH are in our 30s. I used to get so down every time AF showed up but now I'm not even surprised any more, kinda feel now like it's never gonna happen!

Had first lot of tests at Drs last month and my OH's swimmers are fine but my blood test showed no ovulation so am now waiting to be referred to the hospital and in the meantime had acupuncture and started Chinese herbs yesterday.

Going to start temping this month as soon as the thermometer I ordered shows up!! Wish I had done this sooner as may have realised we needed a bit of help ages ago!

Fingers crossed for some BFPs for us all soon! x

Hello I understand how you feel. This is month 10 of trying, Im 25 husbands 29. We have a 5yr old dd. We were casually trying when she was 3yrs old and started actively trying when she was getting close to 5....had I known ttc a second child was going to be so hard I would have started temping,opks,vitamins,pressed,softcups ages ago! I havent been to a doctor about anything yet. This month I am trying fertility yoga and massage, softcups, and going to take bromelain tablets (days 1dpo-5dpo) for implantation. Its the same as eating pineapple core theres a lot of debate about it but at this point I say its worth a try. Lol

Hi lele! Wow, I can't imagine how frustrating it was to have taking years to conceive yet not have any known fertility issues I'm afraid thats where we are heading, to be honest. But trying to stay positive as I've been told that even healthy couples can take around a year to concieve. And I think that goes for people who already have kids from previous relationships. Fingers crossed thats the case for you and a bfp is just around the corner!
As for us, we've used musinex in the past , preseed, softcup, legs in the air for 20-30minutes after haha. Also tracking cp and temp. Dh takes mens fertility vitamins and I take prenatals. I used to opk religiously but we tried a relaxed approach this time [although I still started temping again around when I though o was approaching. Something in me won't allow myself to ignore trying to confirm ovulation ]. [Side note ~ O should happen today/tomorrow ]
Here's hoping none of us have to bother with another cd1 for about a year!

Hi Scarlett! Thank you its been difficult but we won't give up!

Sorry to hear that it came back you dont seem to be ovulating. But thats good you're already getting ball rolling on the bloods and dhs swimmers checked out. How long are your usual cycles? Glad you're going to start temping. Its definitely a good insight to what's happening in there! I've been considering going to an acupuncturists, I've heard positive things! I hope it does the trick for you!

Hi angelface! Oh cool, I haven't heard of pineapple core but I'm really intrigued to hear if it does the trick! Did you have any trouble concieving your first? Hopefully you won't have to go to the doctor but if it came down to it, if you tell them you've been trying since your first was 3 years old they will definitely be more on board for seeing what's up. Secondary infertility is pretty common [not saying thats what you have, just that hopefully your doctor will be knowledgeable about it to help ]

I hope we all have bfp very soon!!

To be extra nosey, what cd is everyone on? Im cd15, thinking its o day today!

Hi girls,
this my 12month of TTC baby#1.

I have had two failed clomid cycles, one combined with iui, and

This month took it off to just relax, and trying preseed and instead cups.

I am on CD19! Feeling really crampy and constant pain near my left pelvic bone. I am pretty sure I ovulated on the 16th, not sure why I am so crampy today.

I am kmfx that I concieved this month.

Good luck girls and :babydust: to all.

Yeah it was frustrating but honestly I'm just happy it didnt take as long as my parents...took them 8 yrs with unexplained infertility, but then was pg for 4 yrs straight lol.... If those 4 yrs taught me anything it is just that it will happen and to never give up, always have faith and you never know when your gonna get your I am not 100% sure according to my regular period I am 11 DPO...BUT...when I got my OPK's in the mail I POAS just to try it out and saw I was heading to a POS a few days later so according to that I am 6DPO so we will just see when I get the lol FX for all of us!!

Thanks, ya I have read some stuff on secondary infertility...blah why can we all just be normal lol. I didn't know much about ovulation or opks or charting when I was trying for my first child. I wasn't in a hurry to get pregnant lol and so with not using any protection it took 9 months, maybe if I had known more about how the body works it wouldn't have taken so long..idk. But anyways, ya I'll deff be updating people if this pineapple thing works, theres a lot of stuff on google but no hard core evidence so we'll see...worth a shot I say

Also I am on cd11 so hopefully ovulation will be this weekend!

Hi, I am now ttc no 2, but with no 1 we were ttc for 11 months before getting pregnant. Sadly that ended in mc. After that it tookn4 months to fall pregnant with a sticky bean. I understand completely how devastating it is to see bfn month after month. Defo after a year go to a doctor to get initial tests done, but remember it doesn't necessarily mean anything is wrong. Hope you. Get that bfp soon xx
