6 months TTC and frustrated!

Postby loveswineandbabies » Mon Mar 10, 2014 12:39 pm

I know...6 months doesn't seem that long but I am so frustrated. Feeling hopeless :(
I'm on day 38 of my cycle and cannot seem to catch a break. I have no clue when I'm ovulating and can't seem to get this charting right.
Anyone have any suggestions or just want to be buddies?? Xoxoxo

Hey!! Okay so I am trying to learn all of the abbreviations. lol. Opks? Are those the ovulation strips?? I have been using them but it seems like my cycle is ridiculously long so it kind of feels like a shot in the dark. I got a basal thermometer today so Im going to start using that but apparently thats really only good to tell you IF you've ovulated, not when you are ovulating.
What have you been trying?
Im sorry to hear about your loss...that must have been rough.

Hi ladies! :) I'm 21 and my DH is 22. (we'll be 22 & 23 in Jul) My hubby and I have been married two years (next month!) and I have been off of birth control since Oct. I completely understand the frustration!!! We have just been trying to do everything natural so far. I've been tracking my ovulation with an app but so far we haven't had any success. My cycle is suppose to start sometime this weekend (hoping Sat). So we shall see!! My SIL did the temping and she said that it helped her. I keep meaning to start doing that. Just make sure that you check your temp every day around the same time. That way it's more accurate.

I hope we can stick it out together! It's always a lonely TWW for me.

:D

always looking for new buddies! I am going on just 5 months of TTC. I do not temp, but I did start using OPKs last cycle and will do again for this one. For me, I just think it's helpful to learn what's going on with my body so I like to feel a little more in the know of something I have no control over. ( I am a bit of a control freak, well DJ tells me but i know it's the truth! LOL)
