Babyhopes - I know what you mean about not feeling great about it, but what I've noticed is whenever I DO feel good about it, I end up with a BFN! FX'ed!

Alto and Dotty - Hopefully you both have "beginners luck" and get your sticky bean on your first proper TTC cycle!

Onebump - this is my third cycle also. My DH and I were NTNP for our first, so I never knew this agony of TTC. Just three cycles in and I feel like I've been waiting forever, do you feel the same?!

My DH and I have been married since August 06. We had our daughter in March 08. Like I stated above, we weren't TTC, so I knew nothing about ovulation, CM, temping, etc, till we started trying again in January. I was quite overwhelmed when I started reading about it all, and was so glad when I found this website!

As for trying to increase the odds, the only things I have read have been to remain laying down after BDing for at least 15 mins, females achieving orgasm after the males can help the sperm stay in and up, make sure your man's testes aren't too warm (ex. wait to BD if he just got out of a hot shower/finished working out, etc.), don't have sex more than once a day, don't use lubricant....that's all I can really think of right now! Hope some of them help!

I've never had a CP, so I don't know what, if anything, it does to disrupt your system. If you're worried about it, talk to a doctor, otherwise I would advise to try not to stress about it. Stress impairs our chances of a BFP!

So when is everyone actually testing?
I want to try and hold out till the 20th, but tbh, I'll probably start testing on the 16th!

FX'ed for all of us ladies! I have a good vibe about this thread!

well hopefully there will be good news for you in 2 x weeks Babyhopes.

I have to say I feel the same, my temp dropped again this morning, don't know if that means I've not o'd this month and won't or what. However OH knew how to cheer me up by giving me some BD action after work That would at least cover us for a later than expected O.

Torres I do feel like its been forever, when I think how long ago Christmas was, it seems such a long time ago. OH didn't want to start trying till April though son I keep trying to placate myself saying I've got a 4 month jump on our original TTC date.

I'm aiming for a 19th March testing date should AF not have shown up...

I wish I could help you with the temping issue, but I know absolutely nothing about charting temps! If I don't get my BFP this month, I may read up on it though!
I had some EWCM this morning- does that mean I'm ovulating later than expected? I thought I O'ed yesterday, or can you have EWCM for a day or two after O? I think I may stay up late to BD when my hubby gets hone (he's on afternoons).

I've had some today too.. but I remember on my last cycle I had a couple showings of it within 1-3 days after the calender said I O'ed. So I still don't know the exact date I do, I see it as a range, and lots of BD'ing in between!

Oh I don't know. So much of TTC is still a mystery.

It would make sense for you still to get a bit after O, as you are supposedly still a little fertile. But if you can BD at least you're covering all bases.

I have a feeling this is going to be the longest TTW ever. I'm not even 2DPO and my head is already playing the symptom spotting game! Any suggestions on how to relax my mind a little bit?!

Torres, so wish I did have an idea.

I am a teacher and had parents night tonight, meaning I didn't think about my own possible children all night

Back to normal now.

I had the most amazing training session this morning, about the scientific studies to back up mental rehearsal.

Think about when you have that dream when you are falling, but your mind thinks its real and sends a rush of adrenaline, which wakes you up. The power of the brain/mind on our body is amazing. So not that this is enough to get you pregnant, but....if we rehearse a positive pregnancy in our heads rather than a negative pregnancy, our mind will believe that oh we've done this before, we can do it again. Whereas if you always think negatively your mind will tell you oh when we did this last time it was stressful. I am going to rehearse mentally pregnancy and labour regularly and change my thinking.

I know its a bit airy fairy for some, but it makes sense to me (because of scientific research).

Hi onebump I'm a teacher too! Had my parents evening last week though.

I'm on my third cycle of trying to concieve baby number 2. I have a DD who is 2.

Do you find it hard to find the energy to BD while being a teacher?!

AF is due on the 21st but I'm trying no to get my hopes up too much this time as I was so disappointed last month after some decptive symptoms.

Onebump - That truly is an interesting theory. I'm most def going to try it out! A little positive thinking never hurt anyone, right?!?!
Hi Louise, I'm on my third cycle as well. Fx'ed that the old saying "third times a charm" will apply to us this month!
Are any of you ladies early testers? Or do you wait till AF is late? I really want to try to hold out this month, but it's sooo hard!
