Hi Everyone!!
I'm 31, DH is 26.
We've been together for 3 years.
Neither of us have children.
We've been TTC since December.
We are not aware of any infertility issues - my doctor will not test until we've been trying for "6-12 months". So at the 6 month mark, it's ON!
I am using OPKs, BBT charting, and this is my first month taking soy isoflavones CD 3-7. He is taking FertilAid for men, and we are using pre-seed. :)
I know that relatively speaking, we haven't been trying for very long, but I never expected to not be able to conceive on the first try because I've never heard of anyone having issues trying to conceive. That and my first pregnancy 11 years ago (terminated) happened in about 15 seconds before I came to my senses and pushed the guy off of me. I guess I just expected everything to work out as planned. It's really hard having to keep our struggles to ourselves, too, so that is why I'm here! I'm looking forward to getting to know you ladies! :)
I'm 32 / DH is 26
Egg donations: 01/2011, 05/2011, 11/2011
Severe oligospermia: 05/01/2014 (1.75 mill/mL, 4.9 mill total, 34.2% motility)
BFP #1: 05/09/2014 (5th cycle)!!!
EDD: 01/19/2015 <3

Hi All,
I'm new to the boards, but have been posting a regular blog. I figured it was time to really start making some good connections with others going through the same thing. Here's a little about my husband and I.

My name is Janna and my husband is Jonathan.

I'm 30 and he is 29.

We have been together 5 years this May :)

We are currently TTC for #1

This is our 6th TTC cycle

We won't know if we have any infertility issues until after our first year of TTC (a little over 6 months away).

I've always kept track of my cycle through a phone app as our previous BC was the rhythm method and condoms. In January I started using OPK's and April is our first month with a BBT chart. I also plan to start using PreSeed. Hopefully we will get a BFP before we have to see the doc in a little over 6 months.

We started TTC after I turned 30 and since then my body has been going through some crazy changes. I used to think I had a super normal cycle, but now that I am actually paying attention and tracking symptoms I'm realizing that its a little shorter than I thought. I've also had a drastic change in hormones that have caused acne on my face for my entire cycle. (UGH ITS HORRIBLE!!) I didn't even have acne like this as a teen. I've also gotten a significant amount of gray hair (I had a few before, but now its a bit ridiculous and my hair dresser has had to switch to a new dye because the new grays refuse to hold normal hair dye). I'm not sure if its the stress from TTC and turning 30 that has effected my body or if I am just getting old :/
Me: 30
Hubby: 29

Hello all.. 34 tomorrow and trying to conceive #2. This is our second month, although this past month we have been trying extra hard to conceive. I am a teacher, so it is all about timing haha! I have one DD and one previous angel baby/miscarriage. I am trying to temp as well as pay attention to CM and using opk's...although they are very confusing to me. This past month I have not done too well temping as I have not been sleeping too soundly. Hoping I have ovulated today or going to in the next day. Exciting time ladies!
