Could use a buddy


Hi All! I'm new here and could really use a buddy. I'm feeling pretty deflated after the arrival of AF this morning. I'm 30 years old, been TTC for #1 for 8 months. Anyone else in the same boat? OH is supportive but feels I'm "too focused" on this one thing. Would love to chat with other women who have been trying for a few months!

Hi

I'm 32 and starting cycle #9 for the one and only.

I'm totally obsessed and it drives OH nuts so I spend a lot of time on here with randomly lurking but not posting. I started temping and do some OPKs.

Hi there, I am new in the game, this is only me 2nd cycle TTC, but I will turn 30 this year and we want 2 children eventually so I am very much in a hurry to get pregnant. I am totally obsessed and started out with BBT, OPK, checking CM, etc & hubby thinks I am "putting too much pressure on it." Seems like he think casual BD will lead to pregnancy. I said hey if I can calulate our best chances then I am going to!

Thanks for your responses timeforababy and hello_kitty_t!! It's nice to meet other people to be "focused" with! For some reason I just assumed I'd get pregnant right away, so now that we are approaching the 1 year mark of TTC, I find myself obsessing even more. I also made the mistake of telling close friends that we are trying for a baby and a lot of them continually ask if we are pregnant "yet" so that puts on more pressure. I wish I could have OH's nonchalant it will happen when it happens attitude. I know everyone says to just relax and not think about it, but I'm sure many of us here find that easier said than done.
I've been using OPK, but struggled with BBT. Have you found that BBT helps? Im starting testing a cycle monitoring at a fertility clinic this week, so hopefully that brings some answers.

BBT is not telling me much so far. The dog wakes me up all hours of the morning sometimes so those temps are wacky. I had a temp spike on CD14 (a day I was woke up early) but I didn't get a +OPK til that day, so the temp spike should be after. Anyway, I hope that after a few months I'll be able to see a pattern.

Hey Sashimi! Same boat here except I'm on my 3rd cycle. OH says I'm "trying to hard". He totally wants a baby and has for a while, but feels like I shouldn't temp or use OPK's. Personally, I don't care! AF showed up early this month and I'm determined to get things right these next few cycles. I'm going to keep trying as hard as I possibly can til I have a little baby in my arms.

It's only my second month of BBT, I was trying to take it easy before this, so I don't really have that much useful information from it yet

Hi there, I'm a little younger (25) but have been trying for 9 months and am starting to realize the benefit of reaching out to you people! We haven't told anyone we are trying so it's nice to have people to talk to about it!

Kitty, I'm the same way with irregular sleeping patterns. I couldn't keep up with the bbt!

Sleepyowl, I told OH that doing the OPKs, etc., help me to understand my own body better. I was on the pill for 10 years, so it takes some time to get used to figuring out when O will occur each month. I totally obsessed over it during my first 4 cycles and then took a break. Personally, I find it really exciting seeing that happy face on the CB OPKs!!!!!

Piya!! Looks like we are pretty much on the same cycle. I'm usually 31 days, but was 29 this month. We can be cycle buddies!!!
