First time here

Postby ajs313 » Thu Jan 17, 2013 8:06 am

Hi! I am 35 and my SO is 36. We have been TTC for 4 months. I know that hasn't been too long but it is still frustrating! I am due for AF tomorrow and hoping the cramps and sore boobs are a sign of pregnancy but I am pretty sure it is just AF on her way. I am pretty aware of when my body ovulates but I think it is time to start using OTK's. Any thoughts?

Hi!
I'm pretty new, too. Last month was our first month TTC.
I'm starting OPKs this cycle. They're inexpensive & seem to be a great way, along with BBT, to confirm that you are ovulating WHEN you think you're ovulating. AF showed up for me yesterday, so our cycles might be pretty similar.
Me: 34 (Already?! How'd THAT happen?)
DH: 38

TTC#1, who will likely be our 1 & only!

We are pretty similar! I hope this next month is your lucky month! I am expecting AF tomorrow and I have been feeling pretty terrible today, worse than usual! I am hoping that is a good sign but it is probably all in my head!

Hi Ladies. May I also join in. My AF came on Wednesday and now I'm determined to actively TTC. I ordered the things to measure my temperature, as well as ovulation detection kit. I want this baby and it worries me, am 32 and my biological clock is ticking...still trying for #1.

The more the merrier! My AF is supposed to come today. Nothing yet and I am trying so hard not to get excited since it is only 9am! I am about to turn 36 so I feel the tick, tick, tick, too! If AF does come today I am going to get OTK and start using those. I do hope I have to get a HPT instead, though!
