    Hi,

    Congratulations to all the :bfp:'s

    Just wondering how many months you were TTC when you got your :bfp: and if you did everything different that month.

    Any tips on keeping sane during the 2week wait as I have become the most impatient women ever the last few months.....

    W x

    *Sorry title should say BPF!!

    With my first son it was a suprise so hard to gauge.
    Second DS it took 8 months to conceive.
    I had had one tube removed 9 months prior due to an eptopic.
    This time it took two months of very active trying *blush*
    We just went at it like rabbits towards the date of my period and presto.

    I also had hubby wear loose boxers,drink lots of water and not to overheat his nether regions LOL

    I was ttc for 4 months when I got my first bfp that ended in m/c and then for a year and a half when I got my next bfp (6 wks along) so a total of 20 months or so. hopefully this one sticks

    We started TTC in April 2002 so it took over 6 years! We had unexplained infertility so it was just a case of keep trying. I am 10 weeks now and have my 1st midwife appointment tomorrow. Just desperate for my scan now for a little reassurance as its taken so long i am terrified!
    Good luck TTC xx

    We had only tried once and got pregnant right away. Unfortunately ended in mmc. Going to try again at the end of the month.

    I came off the pill in August 2007, but actively tried to conceive since the end of May this year, so I was quite lucky that it didnt take that long - around 2 cycles. I am now 7 weeks 6 days pregnant :cloud9:.

    I watched my 'fertile signs' (mucus etc) and tried BD around those times as well as after, as I I actually ovulated later than I thought... so just keep going with BD until you think your period comes. I guess ovulation comes at different times for each person, and even though they say it is usually 14 days before your period, I dont think thats always correct.

    We would usually BD at night before going to sleep so afterwards I pretty much went to sleep so that the swimmers had the best chance of staying in me (tmi I am sorry).

    As for the 2 week wait, well for me it was more like 3+ week wait (with the irregularity of my periods)... I am also very impatient and basically filled my days with searching online and reading about others who were in the same situation... other times I just tried to 'have faith' and try not to think about it too much (easier said than done)!

    Good luck!!!!!

    I stopped having the depo jab, it then took nearly two years to get my BFP which sadly ended in a MMC, that was last Sept 11th - Just got my BFP today so that one took 13 months almost.

    We stopped using condoms in May 08 and started ttc but missed ovulation:dohh:

    We got a :bfp: after my cycle in June but unfotunately it was a chemical pregnancy.

    My next cycle I never ovulated and my whole cycle lasted 18 days(usually 27/28)

    And we finally managed a sticky :bfp: the next cycle..

    So 4 months/cycles so we are very very lucky!!

    I spent my 2ww researching stuff on gogle, comparing my FF chart to others and chatting on here, and when I got to 9DPO I got to poas every day!!

    Good Luck!

    Thanks girls for all your responses, good to hear your different :bfp: stories, makes me realise that we are all very different and it will happen when it happens and that I really should stop stressing about it as it is only our 5th month of TTC.

    Think I am just going to enjoy lots of :sex: :blush:and start the stressing after Christmas if no :bfp: by then!!

    Congratulations to you all, you must be so excited...
