I am 30 yo and ttc baby #1. Was just looking for a few friends in the same age group as me trying for baby #1!
I am in cycle 2 of trying! I'll be testing on Jan 18th if I can wait that long! I was diagnosed with PCOS so I tend to have a longer period than normal. Usually doesn't last longer than 42 days. I have been told it's harder for me to get pregnant so I am crossing my fingers that isn't the case!
Nice to meet you. We have a ton of similarities. I'm also 30, on my second cycle and planning to test Jan 14-17. I just got off BCP in Novmeber and my DH and I are TTC #1. I've been reading the boards for a while and it's nice to see other people's journeys. I'm not too hopeful about this cycle since the OPKs don't show that I've ovulated even though I had symptoms like I did. I just don't know my body yet, especially after being on BCP for almost 3 yrs.
Hi, ladies. I'm 29 - 30 in May. My DH and I are TTC #1 and are on cycle #3 of this little journey. My main goal this cycle is to calm...the crap...down. The stress of this has snuck up on me like I never imagined, and I know priority numero uno from now on is to find some peace. That is why I am here now...on the forums. For me, support = peace. (:
My journey so far is that on my first cycle I think I got a chemical pregnancy. I tested on the day af was due and had a faint line (with three different tests) and got really excited but then five days later ended up getting my period. So that is why I think it was a chemical pregnancy. I did test this month for ovulation with an OPK. I tested positive for ovulation on Dec 27. So I ovulated sometime around then! So that makes me about 5dpo roughly.
I haven't been on BCP for a year now but I also haven't been paying attention to my body til the past few months.
Big Baby dust to you too!
I am with you on this...support = peace. Because I have been completely obsessing over everything and instead of talking to my husband who doesn't care to hear all my cray cray I thought maybe some of you ladies would love to talk about it with me! We can calm the cray cray down together!
I agree on the potential crazyness and obsessiveness. I'm only on cycle number 2 and I can slowly see myself getting engrossed and caught up in all of this. It's funny how we usually think it'll just happen once you want it to. This site is nice coz it gives you an outlet.
I've been obsessing over symptoms that I've had the past few days! I have had sensitive boobs on NYE that went away the next day. Now they are just sore and I have felt a few cramps and a weird stinging pain from time to time. I know I'm going crazy b/c implantation doesn't usually start until a couple of days from now. So by talking to people on here, It's helping me!
Sounds hopeful! Sorry about your chemical pregnancy last month. It would suck to get a bfp and have af come shortly. I wish loads of baby dust to you this month.
I started feeling bloated/gassy and my boobs got really full and sore as well around the time when I should have been ovulating. But the OPKs were always negative. My DH and I have been BDing since there's always hope.
Hi. I am 30, TTC #1. We got married in Oct. so I guess this would be cycle three for me. Right now I am not using OPKs or charting temps. Recently my cycles have been a little weird...I go for a physical on Monday so hopefully all will checkout. I already have my list of questions to ask!
I too have been a bit obsessive over symptoms. I have wanted to have kids for a very long time but always wanted to wait until I was married. Now, the baby itch is there and it's strong! DH is happy with the "do what comes naturally and see how it goes approach" so that is what we are doing for now.
A couple of things I am doing just for myself: we are getting a dog and I will be the one walking the dog (great way to get exercise!).
