Hi Mrs Bea. Thanks for your kind words. I OPK'd for 3 months and temped for two of those. I also temped another month without OPKs. Both indicated ovulation. Initially my temps were a bit erratic but perhaps that was because I was getting into the swing of temping. Who knows what is going on eh? I just need to stay relaxed... somehow!
I'm so sorry, mk8, it takes its toll, doesn't it. I'm feeling pretty low myself, but I know logically that we'll bounce back. It's just hard to feel that, sometimes.
I can say that I think you know the wrong bunch of people. what I mean is, most of the ladies I know who have gotten pregnant have been trying for quite some time, years rather than months. It's not just us. I hope that your scans turn up an easy fix to correct your course.
Thanks Rosered. It is comforting to hear of success stories from people who got their BFP naturally after a "longer" period of time. I just dont get why I am around so many fertile myrtles! I am of course happy for them, but it makes me wonder whats wrong with me.
I'm 30 yrs old (31 in the summer) and ttc since Jan. Just coming to the end of cycle 5 now and beginning to feel like it'll never happen Every month I get all excited during the 2ww and secretly convince myself that I'm pg only for af to arrive bang on time! (I bet that's a familiar story in here!) Really didn't think it'd take this long...*sigh* I think I was convinced I'd be one of the lucky ones to get a bfp nice and fast
First cycle ttc I took EPO...
Second cycle - EPO and grapefruit juice
Third cycle - EPO, grapefruit juice and opks
Fourth cycle - EPO, grapefruit juice, opks and temping
Fifth cycle - EPO, grapefruit juice, opks, temping and cough syrup...
Are ye seeing a bit of a pattern developing here?!!! Dunno what I'm going to add to the mix next cycle - maybe Instead Cups?
My af is actually due tomor (or Thurs, but tomor is more likely) Was feeling very hopeful because my temp took a serious nose dive below cover line at 8 dpo. They've been falling again the last few days though so I'm fairly certain the is on the way...
Looking forward to getting to know you all! Hopefully it won't be too long before we all see a big shiny !!!!!! Sending lots and lots of
I'm in the same boat (except a bit older I think than most of you). 33, ttc # 1 for 6 months. For 4 of those months, I've been charting and using OPKs as well as a CBFM. I'm definitely ovulating and my cycles are totally regular, so I'm getting scared that we have a sperm issue...Anyway, I'm 7 DPO right now. I can totally relate to the roller coaster. Last month it took me a lot longer than usual to climb out of the post-AF depression I fell into. This month if it doesn't happen, DH has agreed to get a sperm analysis (such a relief that he was totally open to that). I'm really hoping this is our month, but at the same time, it's so hard to continue to hope when it's taking so long! And when you know it's not a simple reason like missing BD during the fertile period.
Anyway, good luck to all of you. Such a relief to know there are others out there like me!
I have been trying for not so long now, but not 6 months yet. I am 31 yrs old and I am crazy about having babies the natural way. One of my neighbours had a baby after a yr of trying and my best friend is pregnant too. <br>
I am very desperate and so the name. I am in the two week wait too now. I had BD on the day of the EW cervical mucous which is the time of ovulation. I think it is right and I am hoping for a positive result. <br>
I’ve had a few tests like ultrasounds and blood tests for the hormones. The results of the ultrasound was fine except for cysts on the ovaries and a fibroid in the uterus. According to my father and sister who are doctors, it is nothing to be alarmed about. But my father says we shouldn’t delay any further.
I hope it worked this month.<br>
33 TTC... so frustrated because I got pregnant so fast with my first child. But, that was 13 years ago and that prob has something to do with it. That, and the DEPO of course. Been trying for 7 months. Have had 3 normal cycles. Have taken soy isoflavones. Hmph!
Mk8 - How are you today? Hope you are feeling better. I know what you mean about being around fertile myrtles though, my friend and I went off BCP at the same time because we planned to have kids at the same time (and I thought all you had to do was go off BCP ha) she got her BFP after a couple of months and is now 5 months pregnant and I am still trying to get a regular cycle booo. She was around on Sunday and gave me the whole oh if you just relax crap, I could have slapped her lol.
Rosered - I hope you are feeling better today after a good nights sleep.
Workingttc - I am 33 as well, 34 in December and I hear that clock ticking louder and louder everyday.
Welcome to everyone else that has joined the thread.
Well girls, I can understand you're frustrated and impatient, but please don't say it will never happen to you at only 5 or 6 months TTC.
I am 27 and it took me 14 cycles to get pregnant (13 months). Needless to say that after 12 months, I thought me or hubby had an issue and would need treatment. We didn't. I know quite a few other ppl who only had a BFP after a year or almost a year. One it happens, you forget all about the TTC wait
I know it's easier said than done right now but try to take your minds off it as much as you can. Having been on the same boat, I know how difficult it is especially when you have friends or relatives who get pregnant by looking at their hubbies. But don't lose hope. In the meantime, enjoy not having morning sickness, etc while it lasts!
