Trying for #1, anyone is welcome!


Hi Ladies,

I have been mostly lurking in other 2ww buddy posts to find others on the same boat. Now I am thinking may be I should have started with a introduction, so bear with me,

I am Alice, 29 (DH 34). We are trying for our #1, and this is our 2nd cycle ttc. [ I am also new to all the lingos ] First time we tried in September 2017. It was more like NTNP type, but after a at that time, now I am more stressed in our 2nd cycle. My af is due on 9th Feb. Oh, I should mention me and DH have to live apart due to our work being in different cities. So we can not really try every month. DH is pretty cool headed about this and have 'we will try again next month' type of attitude. I don't know why I am just too stressed, I so want this tww to be the one. All I am doing is symptom spotting, convincing myself this is a sign, then persuade myself that I am definitely overanalyzing.

I don't really know much about what to look for and obviously no experience to compare with. So this is me, looking for buddies, anyone ttc, in their tww, first time mummies, or already a mom. Share your experience, symptoms with me. I am really going crazy with the stress ..

for everyone who is trying or, not trying but wouldn't mind a surprise!

Hey there, we've been actively trying for 19 cycles now (this being cycle 19#) and trying for baby #1. Bit of background on me at age 15 I had to have extensive surgery on ovaries (cyst removed on right and fallopian tube and partial removal on left side) then got pregnant from due to ex's lie on "protection." Ended in assisted MC due to it being half in the entryway of remaining fallopian tube (was attached to uturus but had started to grow near the opening cause pain/bleeding.) That was back when I was 22/23 and now about to reach 30 in April, have had nothing but a minor CP, so minute I barely caught the hcg hormone before pain and bleeding back in cycle 12. Which could have just been a cyst rupture and "sorting itself out" since they can cause a small trace to be picked up by tests, it is a thing people...

So now I sit and wait for an appointment to see a GYN with so many being each month it's impossible to NOT get pregnant at least once, and yet...nothing.

So GL with your cycles and I hope you have better luck than me and remember...it could always be worse if you don't get BFP this cycle.

Hi girls! Thought I would join! I have super irregular cycles.. I mean months without one kinds. According to the professionals lol my ovaries are “remarkable” as well as my uterus and endometrium. So it’s most likely a thyroid or hormonal issue which I have yet to get tested because we decided this was our last year (or half at least) TTC by NTNP! But I will start TTC more actively by temping and trying pre seed and things like that on my own for the next few months before we even try fertility drugs. I will say if it’s a thyroid over or under I fit some of the symptoms besides weight gain.

Hi!!! I am sorry you had to go through all that. You are right, we can only try and hope for the best, no point stressing on what may or may not happen. This TWW is just driving me crazy, and af is so close.

BTW, we are almost same age, I will be 30 in September. Lets hope we will get a better luck this year! Fx ..

Been feeling like AF is right around the corner (obviously thought I was PG with all the symptoms lol) but BFN’s so I’m just waiting on the witch then I will be actively temping! Good luck girls, hoping our first ones are conceived in 2018! What a blessing that would be!
Hi dear! Thanks for sharing. I don't have a super perfect cycle either, it varies between 29-31 days. I am kind of skinny too, everyone who knows me always goes on about it all the time, like I'll be wanting to gain someday (TTC). So that was kind of my thought too, what you mentioned about your mom and sister, I have seen others like us having healthy babies, so hopefully this won't be too much of a problem.

Our first ones conceived in 2018, I could want nothing more! So for you and CM!

I'm the same way 5'7" and currently 102 lbs, been skinny all my life heaviest been 113 when I was "ripped" at 17 due to sports. I think it just depends on the person and their diet if the "skinniness" affects your fertility. I do hope you all have good luck this year and don't have to go through the pains of fertility aid, that I will probably be going through soon.

Hi ladies, Iíve been on the TTC train since August 17. This is cycle number 6 after coming off of the pill. Iím 34 and he is 32. We also have a rough time with it, my partner suffers from delayed ejactulation, most of the time he doesnít climax at all. We just try and have sex as much as we can in my fertile window and hope for the best. We are planning to start seeking help and trying alternative methods in July. Until then, itís just fingers crossed and hope for the best

Best of luck! I am now 32 and DH is 34, but when I was 23 I got pregnant (had a miscarriage around 6-8 weeks and it was w/ my bf at the time) so the only signs I am aware of feeling are super sensitive nipples and sides of my boobs when it was the week AF (aunt flo) was due and constant mild cramping. My AF was due that week on a Friday and I tested that Wednesday cuz I missed a lot of BCP (birth control pills) and it was negative. Tested again 2 days after AF was due and I got a positive. FYI... DOLLAR TREE TESTS WORK cuz I had 1 and when I already knew I was pregnant I tested on that to see if they do work haha and they do. Anyways... those were the 2 symptoms I remember.

DH and I started trying 2 weeks ago and I'm not sure what my cycle is because I took the first week of BCP before we decided to start. No I couldn't wait 3 weeks and finish the pack lol I was too excited cuz we have been married 3 years, together 7 and I have been anxiously awaiting this since we got married. So I took the first week then stopped. I never got withdrawel bleeding, which is odd cuz in the past when I had to stop my pills for a month for any reason I got the bleeding. I have had sore nipples and light cramping since a few days after I stopped taking the pills. I believe that to be the BCP withdrawel symptoms. They mimick pregnancy and ovulation symptoms. So anywho, I'm a weirdo who loves to POAS (pee on a stick) so I have already been testing hahaha and testing on an OPK (ovulation prediction kit) to see if I am ovulating late. I SHOULD have ovulated the week I stopped my pills, but who knows since I screwed my body up. Now I'm rambling sorry haha. I'll be here lurking and following along.

Oh and this will be our first baby. Neither of us have had kids.

thank you! It's just crazy how these symptoms are either pregnancy symptoms, ovulation symptoms (but the OPKs are all negative), or BCP withdrawel. So I think theyre either prego or withdrawel, but where I haven't had withdrawel bleeding I'm leaning towards pregnancy hopefully. I also get nervous tho that my body will confuse my uterus fibroid with pregnancy cuz that happened a couple years ago. I missed a month of pills and discovered the fibroid through an ultrasound (cuz pee sticks and blood test were all negative after skipping AF for a month) and I also had a large ovarian cyst. FX that those don't cause issues.

praying for you as well!!
