Hi. I'm new to the forum, even tried blogging on here earlier today (never done it before in my life). So glad I came across this forum, so many people don't seem to get why you're stressed because you're 'young' in your 20s. Looking forward to talking to people who get it. :)

Hello Esperanza19, I get it sweetie. I'm in my 20s as well. I'm on CD5 and go in for HSG next Wednesday. Here is my link about my story I had posted awhile ago. Maybe we can be buddies, I'm looking for some. I think its better talking with people who are also TTC.

Hi Ready2BMommy27 - I'd love to be buddies! It's helping already talking to people going through the same thing. Gonna take a look at your story.

skyylerhopes69 - Thanks, good to know nothing is tmi. As for the lingo, I'm picking it up and Yahoo have a very helpful glossary! :)

TTsmommy - 1dpo, exciting! I've been hardcore TTC for 4 months now. How about you? Keep us updated on your 2ww.

I've been ttc for 6 months. I don't temp. I tried and it stressed me out. Lol after two months of that. I just decided to go with the flow. Last month. I believe I had a early miscarriage or chemical I have twinges dreams felt like I did a million crunches. My left hand got numb starting 8 dpo nd continued I tested when af was due it was a faint line. 3 days later I started spotting.: ( so here I am again. Terrified. That it will happen again it was heart breaking. But I'm feeling very positive.
Lots of prayers and baby dust to you ladies.
My name is Tiffany.: )

hi ladies!
a lil about me..i was on depo for 5 yrs. got married june 2012, had my last shot the month before. got first period in sept 2012.
dh and i have been ttc since this past january. im 9dpo today but i had such a temp drop this morning i instantly started to cry :(
this is my 3rd cycle temping n i love it bc i have such a loooooooong cycle i need to see if/when i o. i dont find it stressful at all, bc i have my timer set, i roll over grab my thermometer n pop it in lol (i know it can be alot harder if someone has other children or has trouble sleeping.)
so far ive tried lots of natural suplements, and drinking green tea, and epo, and keeps a pillow under my butt after bd, to keeping my legs up on a wall after bd. and ive also tried preseed. oh and pineapple core n baby asprin.
since i o so late, this cycle i used soy isoflavones, they say its natures clomid. it might have helped a lil bit but i''ll deff try them again as soon as af starts.
i have never been pg, not even a cp or mc. ive never even have had an evap line and im a poasa.

tiffany-sorry about ur cp, just know u had nothing to do with it.
as dory from finding nemo says, just keep swimming. or in our case, just keep trying.

skyylerhopes69 - Mentioned this in my blog a bit ago but I TTC with my ex-husband and I had been on pill for 8 years but had tri-cycled packs the whole time for medical reasons. Only had AF every 10 weeks for 8 years. It took 12 months easy for my body to be anything like ready (everyone is different), my cycles before that could be as long as 45 days. I don't know if you're cycles have always been long or not but if not they may get shorter as time goes on. My cycle has settled at around 27-31 days now, averaging 29. Decided to try charting this month, just signed up to record it online. I don't think I'll find it stressful either - I like control! :D Gonna start temping this week. I have an idea when I O anyway as been using OPKs for last two months. Same as you I have never been pg or anything. I really get you're gutted with your temp drop. Please let me know how you go on. I'm just waiting for O now...

P.S having problems linking my chart to my signature, you seem to have managed it.. HELP?! :)

Esperanza thank you so much! I would definitely love to have a buddy. I'm 3dpo I believe. Just have some cramps on my right side and just my left Breast is sore.
Skyyler. I'm sorry for the struggle. I know How frustrating it can be. Sounds like your doing everything you can. Lots of baby dust. Let us know what temp looks like tomorrow. Couldn't that be implementation? I would help with charts but I don't know: ( Lol:

pineapple is supposed to help with implantation by thinning the blood...but u never ever want to use pineapple and baby aspirin or any aspirin at the same time. http://newleafhealing.com/2012/eating-p ... ke-a-baby/


as for my temp drop, i want to believe its implantation but probably not. its more likely a surge in estrogen.i dont have any spotting or anything today..i will deff let yall know what my temp does tomorrow lol

Thank you sky. I decided to eat some. Don't mind cause I like pineapple.

I hope it was a implementation dip. Will you temp go up or down tomorrow if it was? Keep me updated. Pray for you ladies tonight.

Sky - thanks for the help on the sig, it's there and the link seems to work but it's not showing me the thumbnail pic- just a cross. Oh well nm.

Also, don't know where about you are? I'm in the UK so if my timing is out when I'm posting replies and it doesn't make sense, that's why :)

How is temp today sky? I'm with you Tiffany, I'm only just charting this month so I'm not too sure on the finer points either.

Tiffany - How are you feeling today? Still have cramps?
