2014 - TTC #1 - 2nd Month

Postby LaddieBaby » Sun Dec 22, 2013 3:25 pm

Hello All,

My name is Mandy and I've been actively TTC#1 for a month and just had a visit from AF, so I'm back to CD4 for this cycle. I'm looking for a BFP in 2014 (Hopefully, January will be my month). I have a fairly normal cycle. They last 28-31 days, and my period is normally 4-5 days in length. I am 24 years old and my DH is 25. We just got married back in October (2013). We can't wait to start a family and now are looking to TTC boards for help, comfort, and ideas and I'm also willing to help in any way I can for those who need it. Good luck and Baby Dust!

Hi Ladies, my name is Lisa and December is also our second cycle TTC#1. I've only just stopped taking the pill (November) so our expectations of conceiving immediately are very low. My husband and I are in no rush, I am 24 years old, he is 32. But we decided to stop using contraception earlier than expected because it seems that falling pregnant isn't in fact as easy as we've always been led to believe. After reading various bits and pieces on the Internet and in books, I decided that by coming off the pill early this would increase our chances of welcoming a baby into our lives right on cue. Thankfully, my cycle immediately returned to a normal 28 day cycle so that's been really encouraging. I was regular before the pill too, but that was 9 years ago! It's difficult to tell if I O'd in my first cycle off the pill, I had 2 days EWCM around when I should have O'd but I've heard you can get that even if ovulation didn't happen. I've started keeping a record of dates/signs/symptoms on a period app so I can remember what's going on. I won't be charting or using OPK's as there is no desperate need to conceive immediately. Right now, I'm gearing up for the big O (if it happens), I'm expecting it around the 28th. Sorry for this long reply! I just thought it would e interesting to hear where we are all at on this journey. Keep me posted ladies!

Hey ladies! I'm currently just began CD1 of 3rd cycle ttc. Happy New Year to me AF!! Haha... I had a 28 day cycle my 2nd month ttc and this past cycle was 31 days. Just trying to figure my body out and hope we can catch that little egg soon! Took bbt each am last cycle and noticed the shifts on the chart and also had + opks and I am thinking I ovulated sometime around cd16. We used preseed last month and BD almost everday around ovulation time and I found that it was hard to distinguish ewcm vs left over preeseed making an exit? I was on bcp for 11 years before going off at the beginning of Nov 2013. I'm just hoping this process doesn't take forever :/ I guess I should be thankful that I started my periods and my cycle doesn't seem as irregular as a lot I have read going off the bcp. Here's to hoping we all get bfp's in 2014!!

@readygirl I agree with you about the support! It's hard to talk about all the crazy obsessive ttc stuff with friends and family, I feel like they just look at me like I am crazy! It's nice to have a website like this where you can just be yourself and talk openly!
