Gosh, I am not sure where to start.

My name is Erika. I am 25 years old and live in southwestern Oklahoma.
I've been with my husband for nearly six years and we just celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary in September.
We have both always known that we wanted kids but wanted to enjoy being newlyweds. Well, the time has come that we have both agreed that we are ready to TTC. I've been ready for a while but I think that both partners have to be ready for such a huge decision. I'm currently on CD 14 and 3 DPO. This is our first month trying and I am already going a little crazy so any advice on staying sane would be MUCH appreciated.

I've been stalking the TTC community for about 6 months. It all started when my friend and I started a "war" through facebook about who could send each other the cutest pregnancy announcement video. From there, we upgraded to who could find the best live pregnancy test. I've been hooked ever since! I've got a few youtubers that I follow and I am amazed at watching their journey.

Anyway, here I am.
Love and babydust!
Erika

Welcome Erika! I'm Lisa and I'm 28. This is my first month TTC... been with my hubby 7 years and just celebrated 3 years married. I am 12dpo...took a test last night...BFN! Not going to test again unless AF doesn't show. My cycle has been a been weird... was 29 days for a while...then was 30 for a few months, then last month 26.. so I'm not really sure when to expect it. Sometime between Sunday and Thursday I would assume. So if Friday rolls around and nothing, I will test again. I am crampy and have sore bbs.. but could just be AF coming early again. Who knows... good luck to you!! Keep me updated!:)

Hey ladies! Nice to meet you all. AF is due this week sometime for me… I tested again last night.. BFN. But I've been having cramping for a week now and SUPER sore bbs.. none of these symptoms happen to me monthly so I'm hoping that POSITIVE will show soon! If not, will be waiting to O again.. blah.

No updates from me really. I still have some mild period like cramps. I was so nauseous yesterday but I'm afraid that it was in my head because it seems insane that it could start that early. Other than that, I am having trouble falling asleep and when I do, I can't stay asleep. I am getting up once or twice a night, but I'm also drinking more in the day. I just feel thirsty all the time, but it could be the weather.


It is amazing how hard it is to tell what is a real symptom and what isn't!


How is everyone else feeling? Crossing my fingers to see a bunch of BFPs from all of you
Love and babydust!

I know what you mean! I brush off everything I feel since I'm positive that it's imagined, hahaha.

I'm feeling kinda down at the moment. Temp dropped again, AF cramps starting, and watery CM. Only 10DPO, though...AF isn't due until Tuesday so I'm thinking she's just gonna show early this month.
