Can I just tell you that my head is about to explode?

Reading and researching and asking and panicking...should he go on FertilAid, should he take motility boost or count boost or none or both or maybe we should do head stands with our tongues out. I'm so scared I'm doing this wrong and that we're going to try for years when I could have just done that one thing that would have gotten us our baby early...that one thing.

I've lost my mind.

Somebody tell me to calm the crap down. lol
Step away from the computer....and Calm Down...

I understand what you mean though, I like to excessively read about whatever I'm obsessing about at the time. My DH balances me out since he's very carefree.... Anyways, that's why we're here, feel free to get crazy

AF is due 8th or 9th and I am pretty sure that this was not our month. Good luck to everyone!

PS: I think all my acronyms are correct. I'm still trying to learn them.
Hi there,
There's a lot of healthy mothers who have had kids in their late 30s or early 40s so we're good. We still have time .
How do you know this wasn't your month? You never know...

I've heard good things about this method

Relax! You'll figure out what works, and as hard as it is, a difference of a month here or there while you experiment won't hurt in the long run. You have time.

There probably is somewhere. I would offer to look for one, but I grounded myself from Google for a while.

That was a great article, btw. Much thanks.

Wow! I had a little craziness this morning that didn't allow me to do much on the computer before work and this thread just exploded!

Someone has posted about having an idea in their head that they would be married and have kids in their 30's and feeling old. (I am sorry I don't remember which post it was!) Anyways, I totally understand how you feel! Somehow, I was convinced that I was going to meet someone and be engaged by the time I finished grad school. That made life hell for me during grad school (other things made that time not so enjoyable as well, but this was something that was my own doing). So when I finished grad school and wasn't even dating anyone, I was pretty down on myself. I think it is important for us to remember that there isn't an exact timeline for these kind of things. Everyone is different and will reach their goals when the time is right for each individual. That being said, I know I am still guilty of being envious of friends/family who have reached goals that I am waiting to achieve.

I haven't seen one but doesn't mean it's not out there! There's always the BFP stories that are helpful and help give me hope! http://www.twoweekwait.com/bfp-with-...or-infertility.
