    Hi ladies :)
    this is my first month ttc and i already feel like i'm going to get pregnant this month. Am i right to get all my hopes up in the first month or should i try and down play it a bit cause i'm looking on pregnancy sites EVERYDAY (sad i know) but i just think maybe i shouldnt as i'll probably get dissapointed :(
    What was everyone like when they first started ttc?

    fingers crossed for you!

    only thing I would say is that my hopes were very hight first month - I was convinced I was pg, it was a big downer when :witch: arrived. not saying you are not going to be successful, and being positive is a great thing, but obviously the more positive you are the bigger the comedown if you aren't pg.

    ok so I have been off the pill since the 14th Feb and still no AF (or bfp) and whilst there are women who's body goes back to normal quickly there are others who don't and get every symptom under the sun but there is always hope, as long as you are prepared that it might not happen straight away.

    good luck, i would advise to try to be positive, but realistic that it might not happen straight away, although that is easier said than done! xx

    I know how you feel. DH and I start TTC in May and even though I know our chances of conceiving the first month are slim, I can't help but hope for the best. I'm also worried it will make it worse if :witch: comes.

    Oh God ! I know how you feel. I am TTC for 5 months now.Charting and timing and all that jazz...can not stop thinking about that too. Maybe this month I will be lucky. I have had a positive OPK for the last 6 days and I already ovulated on 31/03 so maybe...I am hoping...

    I've been pregnant twice and both times we got our BFP after the first month of trying. Having said that though, we're just entering the second month of trying after our second miscarriage. Like vickie said, it is possible. Stay positive and don't go too crazy! :)

    Hope is a beautiful thing. If you hope that one day something will happen, then you have Faith that it's possible. Remaining hopeful in the face of disappointment is a virtue, yet a needed one for TTC. Some women are blessed to get preggers right away, others have to wait a while. Your miracle may turn out to be very unexpected, but you will cherish it (and appreciate the process by and by) nonetheless.
    May God bless you with a beautiful miracle!
