New here, would love some TTC friends!

Postby AirForceLove » Mon Jun 03, 2013 11:27 pm

Hi all. :]

I am 23 and have been married for almost 2 years to my hubby.

Last year we TTC for the majority of it, with no success. I wouldn't say we tried super hard, but I did use OPKs and tried to time things up, but no cigar. We decided to take a break and just this past few weeks decided it was time to try to start trying again, this time a lot more seriously. I plan on charting for the first time ever, which will hopefully clue me in if I'm just not ovulating or something (I have been keeping track of my cycles for a year and a half, I range between 29-35 days with 32 being my average length). My hubby is reeeally on board this time... I just hope it doesn't get too hard on him if we have a rough time at it again.

Outside of TTC, DH is in the USAF, so we move a LOT. Currently we live in MD, and just moved into a nice house so I hope it's our last for awhile. We also have two cats. I love to garden, workout, play video games and do crafts. In the summer we spend a lot of time camping and hiking.

Hope to get to know some of you ladies, and good luck all around! I'm excited to have found this forum. :]

Hello and welcome AirForceLove :)
I`m so glad i found this forum, as there are so many wonderful ladies on here to help you cope with those BFN`s.
A word of warning though, half to 3/4 of them are POAS Pushers, Hahahaha, Just kidding. You came to the right place for support and guidance, well thats my opinion anyway.
Good luck and babydust to you on this journey :)
Hope to see your BFP soon :)

Hi AirforceLove- Welcome! This is such a fantastic site. I hope you enjoy it. I talk to some really nice gals. I have 2 cats and a dog. We are trying for #1. I'm at the dreaded 35 age (you know.. where you're a grandma) :rofl: I'm kidding, but anything you read always says that fertility takes a nose dive at that age. This will be my 4th cycle really trying. I temp and use OPKs. There is a thread called BBT for BFP that is a lot of fun if you want to join in. Glad you and your Hubby found a nice house :D

Hey girls. im 25 as is dh. we have been married 3 years and together 10 years. we ttc our first year of marriage but couldnt because of my health problems. so the beginning of dec 2012 we decided to start trying again. i started charting bbt cm o and using opks. feb 26th 2013 my dr scheduled lap surgery for april 10 2013. so the month of march i quit charting everything. we didnt try because of my upcoming surgery. my dr confirmed i od march 31st so i was oing. i was scared i wasnt. so i had my surgery and it went well. my period never came i was so scared that surgery messed everything up again! so i went to my dr april 28th and got told i was 6 weeks pregnant! after all that work and stress all i had to do ir relax and not try lol. it happens when you least expect it! even though im not ttc anymore id love to chat with you ladies hear your stories and help ya out with anything or give u advice on anything i experienced. good luck girls. bfp for you all!

I`ve often heard that once you stop actively trying is when you get your BFP but how do you actively stop? Currently its all i think about :(

Well we didnt actively stop. i stopped worring obsessing charting bbt opk cm. we just bd around mid cycle and about everyother day. i believe u should chart keep a journal bbt opk just to get an idea of your cycles then after 3 months of it. take a month off. its worked for alot of women including me. i was obsessed i had ttc ocd. just hang in and try to relax it took me 4 months to figure it out. whats one month? for me the best month of my life! goodluck sweetie!
