Thanks so much for your uplifting words starMint :) hopefully we all get our BFP and then we can stop torturing ourselves! I'm glad we can all support each other here.

Had to register for this board just so I could respond to this post. I've never felt more comforted in the past 3 months as I do right now.

32, TTC for 3 months after 12 years on the pill. I've given up all of my favorite vices (mainly beer and junk food) and started staying active regularly, eating right, and tracking my fertility/ovulation schedule. Nothing as of yet.

The most frustrating part has been people telling me, "oh, it'll happen! Just stop thinking about it!". Well, I can't. I've made adjustments to my lifestyle in order to guarantee a healthy future pregnancy, which means new choices are being made daily. I think it's important to be thinking about it as much as I am!

The jealousy and quasi-bitterness just started this past month, mainly after driving by a billboard begging mothers to give up drinking while pregnant. I understand the need for it, but it's hard for me to see something like that when I'd do anything to start a family ASAP.

So long story short, thank you for this! I needed to feel like I wasn't alone in my struggle (although I haven't even been struggling that long).

xoxo

Soooo I posted this, my very first post, at 12:30pm. Took a test (mainly for peace of mind) around 4pm - POSITIVE.

I blame all the good feelies on this board.
