Still TTC - For the ladies who have been here a while


Hello Ladies,
I've been here for a while now.
I've seen alot of ladies come and go, and move on to pregnancy, but i haven't.
I'm starting this thread for any other ladies who have been here a while too.
Sometimes it just nice to be around people in a similar boat.

We will have our one day! we can wait for that day together.

Hi Hun... My husband and I started ttc back in October 2010 and after a chemical and recently an ectopic I am still trying... The groups I was involved in before the majority of the ladies have got their and even some have given birth.... So I am in need of some new fellow ttcers....

A little about me....
My name is Rachael I am 31 I have 3 boys already Michael 13 (by my ex boyfriend), Cameron 10 (11 in October) and Ben who's just turned 9.... I have been with my hubby drew for 12 years married for 10 years.... We decided last year to try one last time for the baby girl we so long for....

Hope you get your bfp soon Hun xxx

Hi Rachael, I'm Kerry.
most of my ttc buddies have moved on now too. I'm 27, i've been married for 5 years. we have no children yet, but have been ttc since we got married.
i've had iui after being diagnosed unexlained infertility. but then had a miscarriage in 2009 and a ruptured ectopic in 2010.
At the moment i'm not using the Dr's, for help (although i will be soon) but for the last year have been ttc naturally.
i've just recently started back up with acupunture and tcm. i'm also charting bbt and using the cbfm.
lol sounds quite alot, but surprisingly, i just take it all in my stride now, its part of daily routine, and half he time now, i don't even notice that i'm trying.
I really like to try and lead as normal life as i can. appart for not having a baby, i'm lucky in so many ways, so i try to remember that and be happy about what i have, instead of worrying about what i don't have.

sending lots of baby dust to you hunny.
xxxxx

Hi chick - Found you

Hey everyone

Well, this will be mine and the oh's 7th cycle I think. I chart (thanks to the ever patient advice from Hispirits ) and use the cbfm. I agree with Hi, it all feels like part of everyday life to the point where I think you do almost forget you're trying.

I know that compared to some ladies, I have not been trying that long and haven't had some of the ups and downs that they have with ttc but I just feel that it can be sooooo depressing when you know in your heart of hearts that you've done EVERYTHING right...and the still shows.

Buuuut... having said that, I believe that whatever will be will be and with some extremely fabulous support from some individuals on this forum (Hi - ) in your darkest hours, you always know that next month will be the one

Looking forward to getting to know everyone

hiya hunny,
we're are both in similar stages tihs month, I o'd yesterday.
I've been having acupuncture again this month, but also this month my acupunturist has given my some herbs to drink, they stink and taste rank, but i'll give anything a go once! lol
I have been referred back to the fertility clinic, i'm getting the ball rolling now, but not sure if i'm completely ready to start that rollercoaster right at this moment, but i hear the waiting list for ivf is quite long, so i'll get the ball rolling now, an hopefully in the mean time it will happen naturally.
Are you still using cbfm?
I may stop using mine. its costing a bom for sticks every month, and its hasn't worked. I mean its quite handy as an alert to let you no your getting fertile before O, but in fairness i think monitiring cm and charting bbt is just as affective.
Are you looking forwar to going back to work tomoz? will you have a new class?

Hiya Rachael and Paula

Hi - Defo looking forward to going back to work! Mind you, ask me in a couple of weeks and I might have a different answer for you I'm a secondary school teacher so i will have loads of new classes - quite excited. I'm definitely a teacher who loves her job

Good news about getting the ball rolling chick. I can't imagine the rollercoaster you have in front of you but you are a strong and positive person so you'll be great. Also, you hear quite a few stories of women waiting to go into IVF or beginning it then conceiving naturally so fingers crossed eh?

I'm proper cheating with my cbfm really. I stop feeding it sticks after my first peak. It gives two peak, then one high then lows. I know that without peeing on sticks so I find I save on sticks. I'm useless at monitoring my cm. I don't have it in abundance if you know what I mean so it's kinda hard to monitor something which can take me three days to find ha ha

Anyway, are you proud of my charting??

i am indeed, you definitly got the hang of it now hun.
my monitor went straight from low to peak this month, never done that before.
i take my hat off to you love teaching secondary school, i was such a bugger at school. i bet its quite rewarding though.
i've got a week off and then i start my new job. i can't wait my last job was poxy. i only lasted 3 months, on to bigger and brighter things i hope! lol
